BRONCOS 31, BUCCANEERS 23
Rookie running back Doug Martin managed only 56 yards on 18 carries for Tampa Bay (6-6).
PATRIOTS 23, DOLPHINS 16
At Miami, Brady was sacked four times and threw an interception, just his fourth all season. But a botched punt, roughing-the-punter penalty and fumble by Miami led to 17 New England points, and another penalty negated a Dolphins touchdown on an interception.
The Patriots (9-3) are assured of their 12th consecutive winning season. Miami (5-7) lost to New England for the fifth straight time.
TEXANS 24, TITANS 10
At Nashville, the Texans set a franchise record for wins in a year and have won six in a row.
Rookie Whitney Mercilus recovered a fumble and had two sacks for a, well, merciless defense. After needing overtime in their past two wins, the Texans forced six turnovers and had six sacks of Jake Locker.
The Texans swept Tennessee (4-8), the team they replaced in Houston, for only the second time.
