Manning, Broncos own Chiefs and AFC West lead

Fred Jackson scored twice for Buffalo (4-8).

GIANTS 24, REDSKINS 17

The host Redskins (3-9) were eliminated from contention as their defense of the NFC East title was a dud.

Eli Manning completed 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards, and Justin Tuck had four sacks to help shut down Robert Griffin III in the second half. Andre Brown had a pair of touchdown runs, including a 1-yarder early in the fourth quarter that put the Giants ahead for good.

Griffin was 16 for 17 at halftime, but he went 8 for 15 in the second half, and the Redskins managed only 95 total yards after halftime.

Game officials appeared to mismanage the downs on Washington's final series, indicating that the Redskins made a first down before reversing the decision despite moving the chains and switching the down markers.

JAGUARS 32, BROWNS 28

At Cleveland, Cecil Shorts caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne with 40 seconds left, rallying the Jaguars. It was a dream moment for Shorts, who grew up in Cleveland.

Henne drove the Jaguars (3-9) 80 yards in nine plays for the winning TD.

The Browns (4-8) had taken a 28-25 lead on Brandon Weeden's 95-yard TD pass to Josh Gordon with 3:55 remaining. Gordon returned from a head injury and finished with 10 catches for a team record 261 yards. Gordon is the first player in NFL history to have consecutive 200-yard games. He had 237 in a loss last week against Pittsburgh.

DOLPHINS 23, JETS 3

Ryan Tannehill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, leading Miami past the listless Jets to keep the Dolphins in the playoff mix.

The visiting Dolphins (6-6) played with more of a sense of urgency while sending the Jets (5-7) to their third straight loss. New York also has a quarterback controversy on its hands as Geno Smith was benched in favor of Matt Simms after a dismal first half.

Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace had touchdown receptions for Miami, while Tannehill finished 28 for 43 with an interception.
