Reg­gie Bush ran for 65 yards on 14 car­ries for the Dol­phins (5-8).

Pan­thers 30, Fal­cons 20: Cam New­ton threw for 287 yards and two touch­downs and scored on a 72-yard run to lead host Carolina (4-9) to the up­set of At­lanta (11-2). New­ton can for a ca­reer­high 116 yards as the Pan­thers racked up 475 to­tal yards to avenge an early-sea­son loss at At­lanta.

Jets 17, Jaguars 10: Shonn Greene and Bi­lal Pow­ell ran for short touch­downs to lead vis­it­ing New York (6-7) past Jack­sonville (2-11). The Jets were shut out at half­time for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive week, but they didn’t need to change quar­ter­backs to spark the of­fense this time as they kept their faint play­off hopes alive. Pow­ell had 78 yards rush­ing and Greene ran for 77.

Seahawks 58, Car­di­nals 0: Mar­shawn Lynch had three touch­down runs and Seat­tle (8-5) set a fran­chise record for points in rout­ing vis­it­ing Ari­zona (4-9), which suf­fered its ninth straight loss.

Ea­gles 21, Buc­ca­neers 21: Nick Foles threw two TD passes in the fi­nal four min­utes, in­clud­ing a 1-yarder to Jeremy Maclin with no time re­main­ing, as Philadel­phia (4-9) beat host Tampa Bay (6-7) to snap an eight-game los­ing streak. Foles com­pleted 32 of 51 passes for 381 yards. The rookie threw an 11-yard touch­down pass to Clay Har­bor with 3:55 left, then led the Ea­gles on a 64-yard win­ning drive af­ter the de­fense forced a punt.

Rams 15, Bills 12: Sam Brad­ford threw a 13-yard touch­down pass to Bran­don Gib­son with 48 sec­onds left to lift St. Louis (6-6-1) past host Buf­falo (5-8).
