Question of the Day
Seattle kept firm grasp on the final NFC wild-card spot and kept alive slim chances of catching San Francisco in the NFC West race.
The Seahawks also picked up their first division victory and assured coach Pete Carroll of his first eight-win season in three years with them.
49ers 27, Dolphins 13
SAN FRANCISCO — Frank Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown, reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career, and San Francisco beat Miami.
Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon also had a 1-yard scoring run and Colin Kaepernick ran for a late 50-yard touchdown and threw for 185 yards in his fourth straight start since being promoted over Alex Smith.
Vikings 21, Bears 14
MINNEAPOLIS — Adrian Peterson rushed for 154 yards and two touchdowns and Harrison Smith returned an interception for a score to lead Minnesota over free-falling Chicago.
Peterson topped 100 yards before the first quarter was over, helping the Vikings overcome another lackluster day from quarterback Christian Ponder to get a victory that will keep their faint playoff hopes alive.
Jets 17, Jaguars 10
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and New York kept its postseason hopes alive.
The Jets were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn’t need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time around. Instead, they just pounded the Jaguars up the middle.
Rams 15, Bills 12
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Sam Bradford threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds left to lift St. Louis.
Bradford was 5 of 8 for 68 yards to cap a 14-play, 84-yard drive. St. Louis continued its late-season resurgence by winning its third straight for the first time since closing the 2006 season with three victories.
