NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Broncos End Long Week With 43-13 Thrashing At Hands Of Cardinals

The Denver Broncos fired head coach Josh McDaniels last week, and interim head coach Eric Studesville's debut didn't leave a great impression, as the Broncos were thoroughly crushed, 43-13, by the Arizona Cardinals.

Kyle Orton threw three interceptions - one of which was returned for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter by rookie linebacker Daryl Washington - and were thoroughly outplayed in all three phases of the game.

Jay Feely, however, was the star of this game. Arizona's kicker nailed five of six field goals, and also scored on a five-yard fake field goal touchdown run. In opening up a 22-3 lead, which took until early in the fourth quarter, Feely was responsible for all 22 of Arizona's points, and was the only scoring that the Cardinals needed before Tim Hightower added two garbage-time touchdown rushes.

In winning for the first time since October 10, the Cardinals improve to 4-9, and are just two games out of first place in the NFC West with three weeks to play. The Broncos, meanwhile, fall to 3-10 - and it's safe to say that they've had a fairly long week.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Jets And Dolphins Play Mistake Riddled Game, Miami Holds On For 10-6 Victory

The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins found themselves in a fumbling, bumbling and stumbling match up that left the Dolphins a 10-6 winner over the Jets.

Of the 16 points scored in the game, 13 were scored off of turnovers.  The Dolphins managed to turn a Mark Sanchez interception into a field goal and followed that up by turning a fumble by Sanchez into a touchdown. The Jets turned a Chad Henne fumble into a field goal of their own, a 35-yarder by kicker Nick Folk.

Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter notched a 47-yard field goal to put the Dolphins up three to nothing. Quarterback Henne connected with wide receiver Brandon Marshall for a 6 yard touchdown. That was just Marshall's second receiving touchdown of the year, though both came against the Jets.

The Jets fall to 9-4 and lose ground on the New England Patriots for the lead in the AFC East. The Dolphins move to 7-6 and keep their playoff hopes alive in the tight AFC wild card race.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Saints Dominate Rams, Improve To 10-3

More than a handful of casual observers were curious to see how the better-than-expected, division-leading St. Louis Rams would hold up on the road against the defending world champion New Orleans Saints. Their answer? Not well.

Drew Brees threw for 221 yards and three touchdowns - two of which were caught by Marques Colston - and Malcolm Jenkins added a 96-yard interception return for a touchdown as the Saints blew the Rams out in the Superdome, 31-13.

After falling into a quick 14-0 hole, with both of Colston's touchdowns coming in the first quarter, the Rams fought back to 14-6 and had the ball deep in Saints territory just prior to halftime, looking to capture some serious momentum. Sam Bradford's pass, however, was intercepted by Jenkins and returned for a score, and the Rams never seriously threatened from that point forward.

The Saints improve to 10-3 on the season, one game out of first place in an NFC South division still headlined by the 11-2 Atlanta Falcons. The Rams, meanwhile, fall to 6-7 - which, thanks to tiebreakers, still gives them a division lead in the ugly, pitiful NFC West.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Chargers Blank Chiefs, 31-0

San Diego is still a longshot to win the AFC West. But the Chargers sent a message to the Chiefs on Sunday: we're not going to go away. 

Led by a stifling defense that limited the Chiefs to just 67 total yards, the Chargers beat Kansas City 31-0.

Philip Rivers threw for two touchdowns for San Diego, and Mike Tolbert and Ryan Mathews each had over 60 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The Chargers would only have needed one.

Playing without Matt Cassel, who had an emergency appendectomy earlier this week, the Chiefs struggled mightily to even move the chains. Brodie Croyle and Tyler Palko were utterly ineffective under center, combining to complete just nine passes, and the lack of a passing threat allowed the Chargers to stack the box and slow down Jamaal Charles, who had just 40 yards on 10 carries.

The Chiefs still have a one-game lead on the Chargers in the AFC West, and finish with a trip to St. Louis and home games against the Titans and Raiders. But the Chargers would win the division if they win out and the Chiefs drop one of those three games, according to FanHouse's Chris Tomasson.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: 49ers Pound Seahawks, Pull Within One Of NFC West Lead

The Seattle Seahawks, sitting at 6-6 and atop the NFC West entering Week 14, quickly and efficiently found themselves trailing 40-7 in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. This is the same 49ers team, by the way, that started the season 0-5 and, in defeating Seattle 40-21, moved to 5-8 on the season - and are just one game out of the division lead.

The NFC West is stupid.

San Francisco, to be fair, has gone 5-3 since their 0-5 start despite playing three different players at quarterback. In defeating Seattle, the 49ers forced five Seahawks turnovers, including four interceptions of Matt Hasselbeck - one of which was returned for a touchdown by Dashon Goldson. Alex Smith threw three touchdown passes, two of them lengthy scores to Vernon Davis and Brian Westbrook, and not even Leon Washington, who returned his third kickoff for a touchdown in defeat, could make things look respectable on Seattle's end.

With the St. Louis Rams' loss dropping them to 6-7, both of these teams remain very much in the hunt for a division championship. Not even the 4-9 Arizona Cardinals are out of it yet.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Patriots Thump Bears 36-7, Clinch Playoff Berth

It was a battle of two division leaders, but only one team looked like a member of the NFL's elite.

In snowy, windy conditions at Soldier Field, the Patriots routed the Bears, 36-7.

Tom Brady was gave another typically superb performance, throwing for 369 yards and two touchdowns, while leading the Patriots to a 33-0 halftime lead. Deion Branch was his favorite target, catching eight passes for 151 yards and a touchdown.

The Bears were helpless against the Patriots offense -- one which has been better of late than the 2007 edition that New England rode to an unbeaten record -- and hapless when they tried to move the ball. Jay Cutler completed just 12 of 26 passes and threw two interceptions; Chicago tallied just 47 yards on the ground.

The Patriots move to 11-2 with the win, and became the first NFL team to clinch a berth in this year's playoffs. Thanks to a Packers loss, the Bears stay atop the NFC North.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Lions Squeak By Packers In 7-3 Win

For a game that was not only a divisional battle but also one with playoff implications for one of the two teams involved, the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers combined to do a lot of nothing. 

The two teams scored a total of 10 points, with the Green Bay Packers settling for a field goal, from Mason Crosby, on 4th and 1 from the Lions 25 yard line (a 42 yard field goal). The Lions finally broke through with a 13 yard touchdown pass from Drew Stanton to tight end Will Heller

Aaron Rodgers was knocked out of the game with a concussion and that led a typically explosive Packers offense to turn into a stagnant and inefficient one. Before leaving the game, Rodgers had only thrown 11 passes, completing 7 for 46 yards and an interception. Back quarterback Matt Flynn didn't manage to do much better, completing 15 of 26 passing attempts for 177 yards and an interception.

The Lions, behind third string quarterback Drew Stanton, sacked the Packers quarterbacks four times and picked them off twice, along with recovering a fumble, shutting down the high powered Packers offense. Stanton overcame his two interceptions to throw the winning touchdown and caused problems for the Packers defense with his legs (4 rushes, 44 yards).

The 8-5 Packers lose ground in the NFC wild card, and NFC North division champion, hunt.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Redskins Botch PAT Attempt, Hand Bucs 17-16 Win

Trailing 17-10 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fourth quarter, on-the-rocks Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb led his team on a 13-play, 75-yard drive, finding Santana Moss for a six-yard scoring toss late in regulation.

Nice job, Donovan. You can't blame him for what happened on the next play, either: Hunter Smith botched the extra point snap, and the Buccaneers held on for a 17-16 win that was critical to their playoff hopes.

Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman completed 15 of 25 passes for 266 yards, and found tight end Kellen Winslow for a pretty 41-yard catch-and-run that gave the Bucs their first lead of the game; they trailed 10-9 prior to the score, but after Freeman ran in a two-point conversion, Tampa owned a 17-10 lead.

The rest, as they say, will live on in Redskins infamy.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Steelers Defense Dominant In 23-7 Win Over Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals opened up a 7-0 lead on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field when Carson Palmer found eligible tackle Andrew Whitworth for a one-yard touchdown pass. That lead lasted until the second quarter, when things got a little out of hand for Cincinnati.

Palmer, who has made it a specialty of his to throw pick-sixes - interceptions returned by the opposition for touchdowns, for those of you in the dark - and continued that trend on Sunday. Troy Polamalu intercepted a Palmer throw and returned it 45 yards for a score to tie the game at seven, and linebacker Lamarr Woodley took a pick back 14 yards for a score in the fourth quarter to put the game on ice for Pittsburgh. Shaun Suisham added three field goals to Pittsburgh's two defensive scores in their 23-7 victory.

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense were not particularly effective, but they didn't have to be. Roethlisberger threw for 258 yards on a bad foot and with a fairly gnarly looking bandage on his surgically-repaired nose. Rashard Mendenhall rushed for 66 yards on 18 carries, but it was Palmer's three interceptions that was the big story in this contest.

The AFC North-leading Steelers improve to 10-3, while the hapless Bengals fall to 2-11. Visit Behind the Steel Curtain and Cincy Jungle for more on this game.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Falcons Beat Panthers In Non-Comeback, 31-10

After winning via a fourth quarter comeback yet again last week, the Atlanta Falcons finally got a drama-free win, putting away the Carolina Panthers 31-10. Both running games banged out yardage in a game with sloppy field conditions — Falcons RB Michael Turner ran for 112 and three touchdowns, countered by Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart and Mike Goodson, who ran for 203.

Falcons WR Roddy White led all receivers, with 79 on eight catches. Atlanta’s defense recorded five sacks, two each by DT Jonathan Babineaux and DE Kroy Biermann.

After the Falcons built a 17-point halftime lead, the Panthers stuck to the run, with Stewart and Goodson peeling off long runs as Atlanta’s defense played it loose. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense.

The 11-2 Falcons continue to angle for home field advantage next week against the Seattle Seahawks. The 1-12 Panthers host the Andrew Luck Bowl against the Arizona Cardinals.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Jaguars Top Raiders 38-31, Keep AFC South Lead

One of the day's better games so far happened in Jacksonville, where the Jaguars came back more than once to keep their place atop the AFC South.

Buoyed by 23 carries for 101 yards and a touchdown from Maurice Jones-Drew, another 105 yards on the ground from Rashad Jennings, and three David Garrard touchdown passes, the Jaguars beat the Raiders, 38-31.

Jacksonville had to overcome a game Oakland team that got a great performance from Darren McFadden, who had 209 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. The Raiders raced out to a 17-7 halftime lead and pushed their advantage to 24-14 after McFadden took a screen pass 67 yards for a score and ran 51 yards up the middle for another.

But the Jaguars took over late, scoring 31 second-half points, and a 30-yard run by Jones-Drew with under two minutes left answered a McFadden touchdown and put the Jags up for good.

After that score, the Raiders could not mount a rally, with poor clock management helping to kill a drive that ended in Jaguars territory.

The win moves the Jaguars to 8-5 on the year. They have a one-game lead on the Colts in the AFC South.

NFL Week 14 Scores And Results: Bills Outrun Browns, 13-6

A game with implications for the upper portion of the NFL Draft order was decided in the dirt. On the day Cleveland Browns RB Peyton Hillis became the first white 1,000-yard rusher in 25 years, it was the Buffalo Bills ground game that powered the winning effort. Bills RB Fred Jackson's 112 on 29 carries led the way, followed by 49 yards of scrambles from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. This was Jackson's fourth game of 100 or more total yards in five weeks.

Browns QB Jake Delhomme got back to his generous ways, throwing a pick after a very rare turnover-free performance last week. Fitzpatrick threw for 142 and a touchdown. Both defenses seem to have done tidy jobs, as today's biggest play was a mere 35-yard catch by Bills TE Jonathan Stupar.

The 3-10 Bills take on the Miami Dolphins next. The 5-8 Browns resume the Battle for Ohio against the Cincinnati Bengals
