Depleted Texans continue winning; Packers stay perfect with late drive
Johnson rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Titans to a 23-17 win over the slumping Buffalo Bills. Held to less than 100 yards seven times in his first eight games, Johnson now has topped the century mark three times in his last four outings.
He scored on runs of 48 and 4 yards to match his season touchdown total. Kicker Rob Bironas did the rest, hitting three field goals, including a 44-yarder midway through the fourth quarter to put the Titans ahead 23-10.
The Bills (5-7) have lost five straight.
Chiefs 10, Bears 3
CHICAGO — Tyler Palko shook off two miserable starts and threw for 157 yards and a touchdown even though he briefly got lifted for Kyle Orton, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat Chicago 10-3 on a day when the Bears lost Matt Forte to a right knee injury.
Orton came on to start the second quarter and immediately left the game after injuring a finger on his right hand. Palko connected with Dexter McCluster on a wild 38-yard pass to end the first half on a ball that got deflected by Brian Urlacher and Chris Conte, giving the Chiefs a 7-3 lead and their first touchdown in three games.
Patriots 31, Colts 24
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Rob Gronkowski scored three more touchdowns, and it turned out the Patriots needed every one of them to keep Indianapolis winless.
New England withstood the Colts’ three-touchdown rally in the fourth quarter for the victory.
The Patriots (9-3) have won four in a row. Indianapolis (0-12) must beat Baltimore, Tennessee, Houston or Jacksonville to avoid becoming the second NFL team to go 0-16.
Steelers 35, Bengals 7
PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger passed for two touchdowns and set a team record for career completions as the Steelers crushed the error-prone Bengals.
Pittsburgh (9-3) swept the season series from Cincinnati (7-5) for the second straight year behind a 28-point explosion in the second quarter.
Panthers 38, Bucs 19
