Cardinals 24

Dolphins 21, Ot

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jay Feely kicked a 46-yard field goal 6:31 into overtime to keep Arizona unbeaten.

The Cardinals (4-0) forced overtime when Kevin Kolb threw a 15-yard touchdown pass on fourth down to Andre Roberts with 22 seconds to play in regulation.

Two big defensive plays set up the final two Arizona scores. First, Daryl Washington sacked rookie Ryan Tannehill, whose fumble was recovered by Vonnie Holliday at the Arizona 49 and the Cardinals moved downfield to score.

The winning field goal came after Tannehill was hit by Paris Lenon as he threw and Kerry Rhodes came up with an interception.

Tannehill threw for 431 yards. Brian Hartline set a Dolphins record with 253 yards receiving on 12 catches.

Broncos 37 Raiders 6

DENVER -- Peyton Manning finished with 338 yards and three touchdown passes.

Manning opened the game by leading the Broncos on an 80-yard touchdown drive -- their first opening-quarter touchdown of the season -- and Denver never trailed.

The Broncos (2-2) beat the Raiders (1-3) at home for the first time since 2007.

Willis McGahee ran for 112 yards for his 32nd-career 100-yard game.

The Broncos held Darren McFadden to 34 yards on 13 carries and Carson Palmer, who led Oakland to a comeback win last week over Pittsburgh, never got on track. He finished 19 for 34 for 202 yards.

Packers 28 Saints 27

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers threw a go-ahead touchdown to Jordy Nelson in the fourth quarter, and Green Bay shook off a week's worth of controversy with a rally.

With Packers fans howling about what appeared to be yet another bad call -- this time by the regular officials, not the replacements -- Garrett Hartley missed a 48-yard field goal attempt with just under three minutes remaining, costing the Saints a shot at the lead.

Rodgers threw for 319 yards with four touchdowns and an interception for the Packers (2-2).

Drew Brees threw for 446 yards with three touchdowns for the winless Saints (0-4). Brees has thrown at least one touchdown in 47 straight regular-season games, tying the NFL's all-time mark set by Johnny Unitas.

Redskins 24

Buccaneers 22

TAMPA, Fla. -- Billy Cundiff redeemed himself for a poor day kicking, booting a 41-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining.

Cundiff missed three earlier attempts, including a 31-yarder that wound have put the Redskins (2-2) up by two scores early in the fourth quarter. He also missed twice in the first half, but was on the money after Robert Griffin III marched his team into position for the winning score.

Tampa Bay (1-3) wiped out an 18-point deficit to go ahead 22-21 on Connor Barth's third field goal, a 47-yarder with 1:42 remaining.

Bengals 27 Jaguars 10

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score.

Dalton and A.J. Green burned Jacksonville several times, including once to set up a second-quarter touchdown and again for a fourth-quarter score.

The Bengals (3-1) had six sacks, putting constant pressure on Blaine Gabbert and overcoming all those defensive injuries. Cincinnati played without starting cornerbacks Nate Clements and Leon Hall as well as backups Jason Allen and Dre Kirkpatrick.

The Jaguars (1-3) failed to take advantage.

Gabbert completed 23 of 34 passes for 186 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. Dalton completed 20 of 31 passes for 244 yards.

Eagles 19 Giants 17

PHILADELPHIA -- New York kicker Lawrence Tynes came up just short on a 54-yard field-goal attempt with 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter as the Giants fell to 2-2 in the NFC East.

The Eagles, who pulled ahead on an Alex Henry field goal only momnets earlier, move to 3-1.

Philadelphia led 16-10 late in the fourth but Giants pivot Eli Manning engineered a late scoring drive.

Then Eagles quarterback Michael Vick responded with a drive of his own, resulting in Henry's winning field goal.
