The only time the Broncos scored more points was in 1963, when they put up 50 against the San Diego Chargers.

Dolphins 29, Titans 17

At Miami, the Dolphins (5-4) achieved a season-high points total. It took three quarterbacks, a flea-flicker and the revival of the wildcat.

Defense helped, too. Randy Moss managed only one catch in his first game with the Titans, and Miami takeaways led to two touchdowns.

After Miami quarterbacks Chad Pennington (shoulder) and Chad Henne (knee) departed with injuries, third-stringer Tyler Thigpen led an 85-yard drive in the fourth quarter to seal the bizarre victory.

The Dolphins snapped a five-game home losing streak, including three losses this season. Tennessee (5-4) lost coming off a bye for the first time in five years.

Kerry Collins started at quarterback for the Titans and struggled through the first half before departing with a calf injury. Vince Young replaced him despite a sprained left ankle and threw for only 92 yards with two turnovers.

Colts 23, Bengals 17

At Indianapolis, Peyton Manning didn’t throw a TD pass for the second game this season, but Kelvin Hayden returned an interception for a touchdown and Javarris James ran for a TD. The banged-up Colts (6-3) didn’t need Manning’s arm. They scored 17 points off five turnovers and stopped the Bengals twice in the final 2:40.

The Bengals (2-7) have lost six straight and dropped to 0-7 against Manning.

Buccaneers 31, Panthers 16

At Tampa, Fla., Josh Freeman threw two touchdown passes and rookie LeGarrette Blount ran for a score. Freeman threw TD passes of 8 yards to Arrelious Benn and 20 yards to Kellen Winslow for the NFL’s youngest team.

Blount scored on a 17-yard run that finished a long second-quarter drive as the Bucs (6-3) rebounded from a six-point loss to Atlanta. Cadillac Williams put the game out of reach with a 45-yard TD burst late in the fourth quarter.

Rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen made his fourth start for injury-riddled Carolina (1-8), which got 100 yards rushing from fourth-string running back Mike Goodson.
