NFL two-minute drill

Philadelphia 38, at N.Y. Giants 31: Down three touchdowns with 7:28 to go, this comeback makes the original Miracle of the Meadowlands look like a cheap card trick.

Detroit 23, at Tampa Bay 20 (OT): Last Lions road win was so long ago (26 losses in a row) that Jon Kitna was winning quarterback and Brian Griese led the Bears.

Kansas City 27, at St. Louis 13: Team doctor texted Matt Cassel pregame, nervous over quarterback playing 11 days after appendix removed. That must have been comforting.

at Tennessee 31, Houston 17: There wasn’t a fight between Texans’ Andre Johnson and Titans’ Cortland Finnegan this time, and there was absolutely no fight left in Texans.

at Indianapolis 34, Jacksonville 24: Down three points with time running low, not quite what Jaguars had envisioned for their onside kick leading to a touchdown.

at Carolina 19, Arizona 12: In a carefully scripted game plan, Panthers made sure Bengals won before icing their second victory, retaining the top spot for the 2011 draft.

at Baltimore 30, New Orleans 24: Ravens’ Ray Rice announces he’s giving spikes from his fantastic day to his mother for Christmas. Someone never made it to the mall.

at Dallas 33, Washington 30: Rex Grossman sparks Redskins comeback but apparently lacks Donovan McNabb’s conditioning, health and experience on last-ditch drives.

at Cincinnati 19, Cleveland 17: Terrell Owens leaves with an injury after six plays and Bengals go on to end skid at 10 games. Things that make you say, “Hmmmmm.”

Buffalo 17, at Miami 14: After Dolphins’ sixth loss in a row after a victory, elevator company contacts team to inquire about becoming its official sponsor.

Atlanta 34, at Seattle 18: Two-time NL Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum raised the “12th Man” flag before Seattle home game. No word whether he raised a white flag later.

at Oakland 39, Denver 23: No one was more excited about Tim Tebow’s starting debut than the Raiders, who never would have made such a silly pick for a quarterback.

N.Y. Jets 22, at Pittsburgh 17: Amazingly, the Jets still had enough strength and conditioning to win for the first time in Pittsburgh. The special teams held the line too.

at New England 31, Green Bay 27: Shorthanded Packers plan for every factor, except how to prevent the longest kickoff return by a lineman in NFL history.
