Colts 35, Lions 33: Andrew Luck tossed a short pass to Donnie Avery, and the receiver raced untouched for a 14-yard touchdown as time expired to give Indianapolis a comeback victory over Detroit.

Seahawks 23, Bears 17: Russell Wilson threw two late touchdown passes, connecting with Sidney Rice for a 13-yard score with 7:33 left in overtime to lift Seattle over Chicago.

Patriots 23, Dolphins 16: Tom Brady stuck with short throws for much of the afternoon and was content to hand off during a clock-consuming drive in the fourth quarter that helped New England beat Miami to clinch its fourth consecutive division title.

Broncos 31, Buccaneers 23: Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes, including one to defensive tackle Mitch Unrein, to help Denver defeat Tampa Bay and wrap up the AFC West title.

Bills 34, Jaguars 18: Ryan Fitzpatrick directed the offense to five consecutive scoring drives, leading Buffalo past Jacksonville. Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and scored on a 1-yard run.
