PHILADELPHIA — Jalen Hurts scored the winning touchdown on a quarterback draw with 2:37 left in overtime, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Buffalo Bills 37-34 on a cold, rainy Sunday.

Philadelphia’s Jake Elliott tied the game with a 59-yard field goal with 20 seconds remaining in regulation. After the Bills went ahead with a field goal on the first possession of OT, Hurts ran virtually untouched for the 12-yard score that made the Eagles the only 10-1 team in the NFL.

Hurts threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more, outdueling Buffalo’s Josh Allen while rallying the Eagles from a 17-7 halftime deficit for the second straight game.

Hurts hit DeVonta Smith for 17- and 11-yard receptions in overtime, and D’Andre Swift had a 16-yard run to help set up Hurts’ touchdown.

Allen threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two scores for the Bills (6-6), who are in danger of missing the playoffs after winning the AFC East the past three years. He was intercepted in the fourth quarter by James Bradbury, setting up Hurts’ 29-yard TD pass to Olamide Zaccheaus for a 28-24 Philly lead.

Buffalo regained the lead when Allen threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Gabe Allen with 1:52 left in regulation.

Hurts finished 18 of 31 for 200 yards with an interception.

JAGUARS 24, TEXANS 21: Trevor Lawrence threw for 364 yards and a touchdown, and AFC South-leading Jacksonville (8-3) escaped with a victory at division rival Houston (6-5) when Matt Ammendola’s 58-yard field-goal attempt bounced off the crossbar with 34 seconds left.

The Jaguars avenged their 37-17 home loss to Houston in Week 3 and created some separation at the top of the division.

C.J. Stroud, the second overall pick in the draft, threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns as Houston’s three-game winning streak was snapped. He has 3,268 yards passing to move past Justin Herbert (3,224) for most in NFL history by a rookie in his first 11 games.

The Texans led by one after a touchdown run by Stroud midway through the third quarter. Lawrence responded with by throwing a 1-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Ridley and hitting Ridley for the 2-point conversion to make it 21-14.

Brandon McManus tacked on a field goal early in the fourth quarter but missed from 55 yards with seven minutes left. Stroud then orchestrated a 55-yard drive, capped by a 17-yard touchdown reception by Nico Collins, to cut the deficit to 24-21 with just over five minutes to go.

STEELERS 16, BENGALS 10: Kenny Pickett threw for a season-high 278 yards and visiting Pittsburgh (7-4) showed new life on offense days after firing offensive coordinator Matt Canada, beating Joe Burrow-less Cincinnati (5-6).

The Steelers totaled 421 yards, snapping a streak of 58 games without gaining 400 yards. Pat Freiermuth had a career-high 120 yards receiving as Pittsburgh, under interim offensive coordinator Eddie Faulkner, outgained its opponent for the first time this season.

Bengals backup QB Jake Browning threw a touchdown pass in his first start but had trouble keeping the chains moving. He finished 19 of 26 for 227 yards and threw an interception in the red zone.

BRONCOS 29, BROWNS 12: Russell Wilson accounted for two touchdowns and Denver’s defense produced three more takeaways and a safety in a win over injury-riddled Cleveland (7-4), in Denver.

With their fifth consecutive victory, the Broncos (6-5) moved above .500 for the first time under Coach Sean Payton.

The Browns missed out on a chance to match their best start since 1999 and lost several starters to injury, including rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson in his first road start. He was hit hard by edge rusher Baron Browning just as he released a pass, drawing a late flag, although the hit appeared legal.

CHIEFS 31, RAIDERS 17: Patrick Mahomes passed for 298 yards and two touchdowns, and Kansas City (8-3) ended its three-game second-half scoring drought as it rallied for a win at Las Vegas (5-7).

Kansas City fell behind 14-0 in the second quarter but tied it by halftime and pulled away after that. Isiah Pacheco rushed for two touchdowns, and Rashee Rice caught eight passes for 107 yards and a TD.

Josh Jacobs rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders, ending a 12-game streak in which the Chiefs did not allow a 100-yard rusher.

COLTS 27, BUCCANEERS 20: Jonathan Taylor ran for two scores, Gardner Minshew added another, and the Indianapolis defense came up with a late turnover to preserve a victory for the Colts (6-5) against visiting Tampa Bay (4-7).

Indianapolis won its third straight and climbed above .500 for the first time since the end of September with its second home victory of the season.

The two-time defending NFC South champion Bucs have lost four straight road games.

FALCONS 24, SAINTS 15: Desmond Ridder overcame two interceptions by throwing a touchdown pass to Bijan Robinson in the fourth quarter, and host Atlanta (5-6) moved into a first-place tie in the woeful NFC South by beating New Orleans (5-6).

The Saints were limited by injury problems at wide receiver, losing Chris Olave (concussion) and Rashid Shaheed (thigh). Derek Carr passed for 304 yards, but New Orleans had to settle for five field goals by Blake Grupe.

The Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak, as Robinson ran for 91 yards with a touchdown.

TITANS 17, PANTHERS 10: Derrick Henry ran for two touchdowns and 76 yards, helping Tennessee (4-7) snap a three-game skid by beating Carolina (1-10) in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tennessee improved to 4-0 this season at Nissan Stadium. Carolina is 0-6 on the road.

Arden Key had a sack and forced fumble recovered by two-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, who also had one of four sacks by Tennessee.

RAMS 37, CARDINALS 14: Matthew Stafford threw for 229 yards and a season-high four touchdowns – two each to Tyler Higbee and Kyren Williams – and Los Angeles (5-6) rolled to a win at Arizona (2-9).

Williams had a huge game in his return from an ankle injury, running for 143 yards and catching six passes for 61 yards, including touchdown receptions of 15 and 3 yards. Los Angeles scored 30 straight points after falling behind 8-7 in the first quarter.

The Rams continued their recent dominance in the NFC West rivalry, including nine straight wins in Arizona going back to 2014.
