MIAMI — Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions, and New York was eliminated from the AFC wild card playoff race when it lost to Miami. The Jets came into the game needing a win along with losses by three other teams to reach the playoffs. Instead, they finished the season with three consecutive defeats. The Dolphins completed their third consecutive losing season.

Chargers 38, Raiders 26

OAKLAND, Calif. — Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, and Richard Goodman returned a kickoff 105 yards for another score as San Diego ended Oakland’s playoff hopes. The Raiders (8-8) went into the final day of the season needing to win and get help to end an eight-year playoff drought.

Titans 23, Texans 22

HOUSTON — Matt Hasselbeck threw two touchdown passes, and Tennessee edged playoff-bound Houston. The Titans earned their first winning record since 2008 in Mike Munchak’s first season.

The Texans will head into its first postseason on a three-game losing streak. Houston was locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs, and coach Gary Kubiak played mostly reserves in the second half.

Steelers 13, Browns 9

CLEVELAND — Isaac Redman replaced an injured Rashard Mendenhall and ran for a touchdown as Pittsburgh limped into the AFC playoffs with win over Cleveland, the Steelers’ 16th victory in 17 games against the Browns. Redman scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for the Steelers, who finished tied with Baltimore for first in the AFC North but lost the tiebreaker because the Ravens beat them twice.

Falcons 45, Buccaneers 24

ATLANTA | Julio Jones caught two touchdown passes in a span of 26 seconds, Michael Turner ran for two scores and Atlanta used a team-record 42 first-half points to cruise past Tampa Bay and clinch the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs. Josh Freeman threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in the first half as the Buccaneers closed their season with their 10th straight loss.

Titans 23, Texans 22

ST. LOUIS — Michael Crabtree caught two touchdown passes, one from kicker David Akers on a perfectly executed trick play, helping San Francisco withstand a late rally by St. Louis Rams and wrap up the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC. The Rams made it close by scoring two touchdowns in just 13 seconds late in the fourth quarter.

Jaguars 19, Colts 13

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a season-high 169 yards, clinching the NFL rushing title and breaking Fred Taylor’s single-season franchise record, and Jacksonville defeated Indianapolis. The Colts may have been the big winners, though. Owner Jim Irsay will have the choice to draft Stanford’s Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick and give the team a young quarterback to join four-time MVP Peyton Manning.

Cardinals 23, Seattle 20 (OT)
