The NFL roundup …
DENVER— Tim Tebow led Denver to another comeback victory, with Matt Prater’s 51-yard field goal with 8:34 left in overtime giving the Broncos a 13-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Prater’s 59-yarder with 3 seconds left in regulation tied the score.
It was Denver’s sixth straight win, and half of them have come in OT since Tebow was promoted to starter.
After failing to score on their first 11 possessions, the AFC-West leading Broncos (8-5) erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation.
Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas with a 10-yard touchdown pass, then got the ball back with 58 seconds left and drove Denver downfield for Prater’s kick.
The Bears (7-6) won the toss in overtime and were in field goal range when Marion Barber coughed up the football at the Broncos 34 and Elvis Dumervil recovered.
Texans 20, Bengals 19
CINCINNATI — Rookie T.J. Yates led the biggest drive in Houston Texans history, throwing a 6-yard touchdown pass with 2 seconds left that brought the first playoff berth in franchise history.
Cincinnati (7-6) couldn’t prevent the Texans from going 80 yards in the closing minutes behind their third quarterback in the last four games. Yates’ 6-yard throw to Kevin Walterset off a celebration on the Houston sideline.
Saints 22, Titans 17
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Marques Colston in the fourth quarter to lead New Orleans to its fifth straight victory.
The NFC South-leading Saints (10-3) had little trouble picking up yards, but struggled to score until Brees and Colston connected on passes of 35 and 28 yards.
Patriots 34, Redskins 27
LANDOVER, Md. — Tom Brady threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns, and Rob Gronkowski set an NFL single-season record for most touchdown catches by a tight end as New England won its fifth straight.
Gronkowski snagged his 14th and 15th scoring receptions, moving him past Antonio Gates and Vernon Davis. Gates had 13 in 2004, and Davis matched that total in 2009.
The Patriots (10-3) again overcame their bend-but-don’t-break defense. The Redskins drove to the New England 5-yard line late before Rex Grossman’s pass went off Santana Moss’ hands and was intercepted by Jerod Mayo.
Ravens 24, Colts 10
BALTIMORE — Terrell Suggs had three sacks and forced three fumbles to keep Indianapolis winless.
Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes and Ray Rice ran for 103 yards.
Lions 34, Vikings 28
DETROIT — Backup Joe Webb fumbled deep in Lions territory in the final seconds, and Detroit escaped with a much-need victory.
Matthew Stafford threw for two scores in the first quarter.
Packers 46, Raiders 16
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers threw for 281 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in less than three full quarters’ worth of work, Ryan Grant had two touchdowns rushing and Charles Woodson picked off a pass against his former team.
With the win, the Packers ran their record to 13-0.
Chargers 37, Bills 10
SAN DIEGO — Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Antonio Gates.
Buffalo (5-8) lost its sixth straight game and was eliminated from playoff contention for the 12th straight year.
Cardinals 21, 49ers 19
GLENDALE, Ariz. — John Skelton stepped in for the injured Kevin Kolb and threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns.
Larry Fitzgerald had seven catches for 149 yards, including a 46-yarder for a touchdown and a 53-yarder to set up the go-ahead score in the fifth victory in six games for Arizona (6-7).
Eagles 26, Dolphins 10
MIAMI — Philadelphia forced three turnovers while scoring four times during a nine-minute span in the second quarter and totaled nine sacks.
Michael Vick, back after missing three games with broken ribs, threw for 208 yards and a touchdown.
Jets 37, Chiefs 10
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Mark Sanchez threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the Jets kept pace in the AFC playoff race.
Jaguars 41, Bucs 14
Maurice Jones-Drew scored four times, setting the franchise record for career touchdowns, and Jacksonville rolled up 41 unanswered points.
Giants 37, Cowboys 34
ARLINGTON, Texas — Eli Manning ended New York’s four-game losing streak, leading the Giants to two touchdowns in the final 3:14 in a showdown for first place in the NFC East.
Dallas appeared to tie the game with a 47-yard field goal as time expired, but New York called a timeout. Given another chance to force overtime, rookie Dan Bailey’s kick was blocked by Jason Pierre-Paul — who also had a sack for a safety.
