BEARS 23, PANTHERS 22
Cam Newton drove the Panthers to the Chicago 27, and Justin Medlock’s 45-yard field goal hit the right upright and went through to put Carolina (1-6) ahead 22-20 with 2:27 remaining. Medlock had five field goals.
“We were down,” Jennings said. “We knew we had to score on defense. Our captains rallied up the troops. We knew that if we got our hands on the ball we had to score. That’s been our mentality all season.”
COLTS 19, TITANS 13 OT
At Nashville, Vick Ballard made a sensational dive into the end zone to finish a 16-yard touchdown pass play from Andrew Luck to win it at 4:49 of overtime. The Colts (4-3) have beaten Tennessee (3-5) in seven of eight overall and seven of the past 10 in Nashville.
“They were all around, and I just knew I had to get in,” Ballard said. “The only way I could get in from the 5 was to jump, so I did.”
The Colts did it with Luck leading a pair of 80-yard touchdown drives. The top pick overall in April’s draft set up Delone Carter’s 1-yard TD run that tied it at 13 with 3:24 left in the fourth quarter.
LIONS 28, SEAHAWKS 24
Young also caught a TD throw midway through the second quarter and finished with nine receptions and 100 yards receiving _ both career highs. He stepped in for the injured Nate Burleson.
Zach Miller made a spectacular, 16-yard catch on a pass from Russell Wilson with 5:27 left to put the Seahawks (4-4) ahead. But Stafford led a 16-play, 80-yard possession. Young broke inside of cornerback Brandon Browner and caught the winning TD pass.
