SAN FRANCISCO — Antrel Rolle intercepted two passes by Alex Smith, Prince Amukamara picked off another and New York shut down San Francisco in a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game.

After outscoring the Bills and Jets by a combined 79-3 the last two weeks, the 49ers met their match again with Eli Manning and New York’s top team.

No overtime needed this time, and not much of Manning either. Manning threw for just 193 yards and one touchdown, while Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 116 yards and a score and the Giants rode a dominant defense and four field goals by Lawrence Tynes.

Seahawks 24, Patriots 23

SEATTLE — Russell Wilson found Sidney Rice behind the secondary for a 46-yard touchdown with 1:18 remaining, and Seattle rallied for 14 points in the final 7:31 to stun New England.

The matchup between the Patriots’ No. 1 ranked offense and the Seahawks’ No. 1 defense instead turned in to a starring performance for Wilson — and a shocking rally.

Wilson hit Braylon Edwards on fourth down for a 10-yard TD to get the Seahawks’ to 23-17. After a pair of holds by Seattle’s defense, Wilson found Rice open on a double move. Steven Hauschka’s extra point gave Seattle the lead.

Tom Brady and the Patriots were then stopped on fourth down at their 28 when Wes Welker came up 2 yards short, and the Seahawks were able to celebrate the unlikely comeback.

Jets 35, Colts 9

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns to power a rejuvenated “Ground-and-Pound” offense in New York’s victory over Indianapolis.

The Jets’ maligned defense was able to shut down Andrew Luck and the Colts’ offense as New York snapped a two-game losing streak.

For a week, at least, Sanchez was in control and the Jets had their best overall performance — save for a handful of personal foul penalties — since an opening-week rout of Buffalo.

Indianapolis trailed 21-6 at halftime and couldn’t erase a big deficit for the second straight week after coming back from 18 points and beating Green Bay last Sunday.

Dolphins 17, Rams 14

MIAMI — Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdown passes, and Miami withstood a late rally by St. Louis.
