Jaguars 29, Titans 27

Scoring on its first drive of each half and deriving help from numerous Tennessee Titans mistakes, Jacksonville earned its first win of the season.

Running backs Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman each rushed for a touchdown for the Jaguars (1-8), while placekicker Josh Scobee added field goals of 32 and 44 yards.

Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker left the game in the second quarter with a right foot injury and did not return.

Lions 21, Bears 19

Calvin Johnson caught two touchdown passes and the Detroit Lions survived a late Chicago drive to take the solo lead in the NFC North.

Johnson had 83 yards receiving, with his second TD giving Detroit (6-3) a 21-13 edge with 2:22. The catch also gave Johnson 63 career receiving TDs, which passed Herman Moore for the franchise record.

Chicago's Jay Cutler returned from a groin injury and passed for 250 yards but had to leave on the Bears' final possession because of an ankle injury.

Backup Josh McCown drove Chicago (5-4) to a score with under a minute left, but they could not complete the tying two-point conversion as the Lions moved one game in front of Chicago and the Green Bay Packers.

Seahawks 33, Falcons 10

Russell Wilson threw for 287 yards and two touchdown passes, and the Seahawks' defense smothered struggling Matt Ryan and the Falcons in a dominating win.

Ravens 20, Bengals 17 (overtime)

After Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton forced overtime with a 51-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green as time expired, the Baltimore Ravens escaped with a victory on a 46-yard field goal by Justin Tucker on their first possession of the extra period.
