EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime. Folk got a second chance after he missed a 56-yarder moments earlier. But Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule.

New York, given new life, ran the ball three times to set up Folk’s winner.

Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Jets (4-3) topped Tom Brady and the Patriots (5-2). New England tied it at 27 with 16 seconds left in regulation on Stephen Gostkowski’s 44-yard field goal.

New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against the AFC East end.

CHIEFS 17, TEXANS 16

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jamaal Charles ran for 86 yards and a touchdown, Alex Smith also ran for a score and the scrappy Chiefs held off the banged-up Texans to remain unbeaten.

The Chiefs were forced to punt the ball to Houston with 1:46 left in the game. But after Case Keenum threw an incompletion on first down, the young quarterback was stripped by linebacker Tamba Hali at his 2. Derrick Johnson recovered the fumble for the Chiefs.

Smith simply kneeled from there as time ran out, allowing Kansas City (7-0) to extend the second-best start in franchise history. The 2003 team began the season 9-0.

Keenum, making his first NFL start in place of the injured Matt Schaub, threw for 271 yards and a touchdown for the Texans (2-5). But he didn’t get much help from his run game after Arian Foster left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return.

STEELERS 19, RAVENS 16

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shaun Suisham drilled a 42-yard field goal with no time remaining. Suisham’s fourth field goal of the day pushed the Steelers (2-4) to their second straight win.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of 23 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He hit Antonio Brown for a pair of big gains on Pittsburgh’s final drive, putting Suisham well within range to win it. Running back Le’Veon Bell ran for a season-high 93 yards on 19 carries.

Joe Flacco passed for 215 yards and a touchdown, but couldn’t stop the defending Super Bowl champions (3-4) from losing for the third time in their last four games.

PACKERS 31, BROWNS 13

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers guided an undermanned offense with 260 yards and three touchdowns, and Eddie Lacy ran for another score.
