VIKINGS 48, EAGLES 30

At Minneapolis, the Eagles (8-6) saw their five-game winning streak snapped, endangering their playoff hopes. Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to lead the injury-depleted Vikings.

With Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out, Matt Asiata rushed for the first three touchdowns of his career. Greg Jennings caught a career-high 11 passes for 163 yards for the Vikings (4-9-1).

Nick Foles threw for 428 yards with three touchdowns and one interception and DeSean Jackson had 10 catches for 195 yards and a score for the Eagles.

SEAHAWKS 23, GIANTS 0

Richard Sherman had two interceptions, Marshawn Lynch scored on a twisting, triple-effort 2-yard run, and Steven Hauschka kicked three field goals as Seattle (12-2) manhandled the Giants (5-9) for its franchise-record sixth road win.

Russell Wilson toyed with New York’s defense, running for 50 yards and throwing for 206 and a touchdown before sitting out the last few minutes. Wilson has 23 wins, the most for a quarterback in his first two seasons in the Super Bowl era.

The Seahawks, already in the playoffs, are closing in on the NFC West title and their best overall record; they went 13-3 in 2005 before losing to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

Eli Manning was picked off a career-worst five times. The Giants lost top receiver Victor Cruz to a concussion in the fourth quarter. Cruz is 2 yards short of his third straight 1,000-yard season.

49ERS 33, BUCCANEERS 14

The victory was the fourth straight for the 49ers (10-4). Phil Dawson kicked four field goals, extending his franchise-record streak of consecutive successful attempts to 24.
