Question of the Day
Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the host Jets (6-7) set a season high for points and stopped a three-game skid.
Chris Ivory had a touchdown run, Nick Folk kicked three field goals and Antonio Allen blocked a punt and returned it for a score. Smith ended a miserable stretch that included getting benched last week by completing his first touchdown toss since Week 7.
The Jets also prevented the first four-game losing streak under coach Rex Ryan.
Matt McGloin threw two touchdown passes and fullback Marcel Reece, starting because Oakland was down three running backs, had a 63-yard TD run for the Raiders (4-9).
CHARGERS 37, GIANTS 14
At San Diego, Philip Rivers found rookie Keenan Allen for two of his three touchdown passes, and the Chargers (6-7) kept alive their long-shot playoff hopes. Allen had three catches to push his season total to 61, breaking LaDainian Tomlinson’s team rookie record of 59 in 2001.
Manning dropped to 0-3 against San Diego since 2004, when the Chargers took him with the No. 1 overall draft pick and then sent him to the Giants for Rivers and a handful of draft picks. The Giants (5-8) were knocked out of playoff contention. Manning was picked off twice.
BUCCANEERS 27, BILLS 6
At Tampa, Mike Glennon threw two touchdown passes and Bobby Rainey scored on an 80-yard run on the second play of the day. The Bucs (4-9) intercepted EJ Manuel four times en route to their fourth win in five games following an 0-8 start.
Manuel, Buffalo’s first-round draft pick out of Florida State, was sacked seven times and doubled his interception total for the season.
The Bills (4-9) have lost five of six, are assured of finishing without a winning record for the ninth straight year, and also are likely to extend the NFL’s longest current playoff drought to 14 consecutive seasons.
