NFL two-minute drill

at Indianapolis 23, Cincinnati 17: For second time this season, Peyton Manning didn't throw a touchdown pass, but crafty Carson Palmer was able to compensated with a "pick six."

at Buffalo 14, Detroit 12: With win under belt and tough schedule ahead, Bills can focus on losing again. Lions lose record 25th road game in a row, topping record set by … the Lions.

at Jacksonville 31, Houston 24: Apparently there is one angle Texans coaches forgot to explain to their defensive players about knocking down those "Hail Mary" passes.

at Miami 29, Tennessee 17: Dolphins used three quarterbacks and a back under center. Titans used two quarterbacks and a receiver on his third team in 2010. Advantage: Miami.

at Chicago 27, Minnesota 13: Brad Childress said afterward that he didn't know if he would be coaching next week. Vikings fans wonder if whether he was coaching this week.

at Tampa Bay 31, Carolina 16: In trend of day, Buccaneers doubled their victory total from last season and there were twice as many fans (44,264) as empty seats (21,393).

New York Jets 26, at Cleveland 20 (OT): Santonio Holmes said he couldn't have delivered winning score without teammate Nick Folk, who missed three field goals, including one in OT.

at Denver 49, Kansas City 29: Tim Tebow threw his first career TD pass and ran for a score, a sure sign the Broncos rolled because he doesn't play when a game is on the line.

Dallas 33, at New York Giants 20: Dallas looked like a new team with Jason Garrett as head coach. Sure beat whatever schmuck was running the offense the last eight weeks.

at San Francisco 23, St. Louis 20 (OT): With 2-0 Troy Smith at quarterback, the suddenly compassionate 49ers say they don't want to rush back injured Alex Smith (shoulder).

Seattle 36, at Arizona 18: Seattle's Mike Williams (career highs of 11 catches, 145 yards) said it felt like the good ol' days at USC with Matt Leinart. Arizona said: "Matt who?"

New England 39, at Pittsburgh 26: Not only did the Patriots win, but quarterback Tom Brady also had a much better hair day than Steelers' safety Troy Polamalu.

Bye: Green Bay, New Orleans, Oakland, San Diego
