The Eagles fell to 3-6 and lost Michael Vick to a concussion after consecutive bruising hits in the second quarter. Rookie backup Nick Foles went 22 of 32 for 219 yards and threw his first TD pass, but also had his first interception returned 47 yards for a score by Brandon Carr and lost a fumble that Dallas’s Jason Hatcher recovered in the end zone.
Titans 37, Dolphins 3
Tennessee turned four Miami turnovers in 20 points, and the Titans rebounded from a 31-point loss to Chicago a week ago by sending the Dolphins to their most lopsided home loss since 1968, and their worst anywhere since January 2000.
The Titans (4-6) came into the game on pace to set an NFL record for points allowed in a season, but they stymied Miami (4-5) by intercepting Ryan Tannehill three times and recovering a fumble by Reggie Bush to set up a touchdown. Colin McCarthy returned his second-quarter interception 49 yards for a touchdown and 21-0 lead.
Vikings 34, Lions 24
Adrian Peterson raced 61 yards for the game-sealing touchdown midway through the fourth quarter in Minneapolis, padding his NFL rushing lead with 171 yards on 27 carries as the Vikings improved to 6-4. Peterson gained 120 yards in the final 15 minutes and had a rush of at least 60 yards for the third straight game.
Detroit’s Calvin Johnson had 207 yards on 12 catches, including an 11-yard touchdown that brought the Lions (4-5) within 10 with 1:53 left. But Johnson also lost a fumble near midfield on Detroit’s previous possession to put Vikings rookie Blair Walsh in position for his fourth field goal.
Buccaneers 34, Chargers 24
Josh Freeman threw a pair of touchdown passes and host Tampa Bay (5-4) scored on a blocked punt and interception return while picking up its third win in a row. Freeman, who was 14 of 20 for 210 yards, has thrown for 13 TDs with just one interception in his past five games.
Philip Rivers passed for 337 yards and three scores for San Diego. However, he was intercepted twice in the fourth quarter by the NFL’s lowest-ranked pass defense to ruin any chance of the Chargers (4-5) coming from behind.
