EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Mike White threw three touchdown passes, including two to Garrett Wilson, in a terrific performance and the New York Jets rolled over the banged-up Chicago Bears 31-10 on Sunday.

White made his first start since last season in place of a benched Zach Wilson and sparked the Jets to a season-high 466 yards in the rain. White was 22 of 28 for 315 yards and was serenaded with chants of his name throughout by drenched fans at MetLife Stadium.

White became the fifth player in NFL history to have multiple games with 300 yards passing and three TD passes in his first four career starts. He joined Patrick Mahomes, Austin Davis, Kurt Warner and Mark Rypien to accomplish the feat.

Elijah Moore, who requested a trade earlier this season because of a lack of opportunities, caught his first touchdown pass of the season. Ty Johnson had a 32-yard TD run for the Jets (7-4), who bounced back from a 10-3 loss last Sunday at New England.

The only real intrigue for the Bears (3-9), who have lost five straight, was who would start at quarterback.

Justin Fields was ruled out 90 minutes before kickoff after being listed as questionable because of an injured left shoulder. Trevor Siemian was slated to start in his place, but he injured his oblique during warmups, and Chicago announced Nathan Peterman, elevated from the practice squad Saturday, as the starter.


But both Siemian and Peterman threw on the sideline before the game, and the Bears opted to go with Siemian, who was 14 of 25 for 179 yards with a touchdown and interception.

BROWNS 23, BUCCANEERS 17: Nick Chubb scored on a 3-yard touchdown run with 19 seconds left in overtime and Cleveland (4-7) rallied to stun visiting Tampa Bay (5-6) in Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett’s final start before Deshaun Watson returns from his suspension.

The Browns forced OT on tight end David Njoku’s one-handed TD catch with 32 seconds left in regulation. Njoku extended his left arm to haul in Brissett’s 12-yard scoring strike in the back of the end zone.

Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes, but couldn’t get anything going in overtime as the Bucs were unable to keep their momentum going following a bye.

DOLPHINS 30, TEXANS 15: Tua Tagovailoa threw for 299 yards and host Miami (8-3) raced to a 30-point halftime lead en route to its fifth straight win.

Houston (1-9-1) managed just 32 yards through its first 25 plays with Kyle Allen starting at quarterback in place of benched Davis Mills. The Texans finished with 210 yards.


Miami scored on six of its first seven possessions.

JAGUARS 28, RAVENS 27: Trevor Lawrence connected with Marvin Jones for a 10-yard touchdown with 14 seconds remaining and hit Zay Jones for a gutsy 2-point conversion, and Jacksonville (4-7) held on to beat visiting Baltimore (7-4) when Justin Tucker missed a 67-yard field goal try on the last play.

After Lawrence led the Jaguars to the go-ahead TD and conversion, Jacksonville squibbed the kickoff and gave the Ravens the ball near midfield – not far from Tucker’s range.

Lamar Jackson found Josh Oliver in the flat for a 12-yard gain that set up Tucker’s try. Tucker, who made four field goals, came up a few feet shy of the crossbar on his attempt to break by 1 yard his own record for the longest field goal in NFL history.

BENGALS 20, TITANS 16: Joe Burrow threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Tee Higgins with 13:42 left to put Cincinnati (7-4) ahead to stay, and the Bengals held off host Tennessee (7-4) for their third straight victory and fifth in six games.

The defending AFC champions won the rematch of their divisional playoff victory despite not having running back Joe Mixon because he hadn’t cleared the concussion protocol. Also, receiver Ja’Marr Chase, the reigning AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, missed a fourth straight game.


Evan McPherson kicked a pair of field goals for the Bengals. He connected on a third with 1:53 left, but Titans lineman Kevin Strong was flagged for unnecessary roughness after landing on the long snapper, and the Bengals ran out the clock.

Cincinnati smothered NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry yet again, holding him to a season-low 38 yards.

RAIDERS 40, SEAHAWKS 34: Josh Jacobs sprinted 86 yards for a game-ending touchdown and visiting Las Vegas (4-7) won in overtime for the second straight week.

Jacobs finished with a franchise-record 229 yards rushing and two scores. He also had six catches for 74 yards, and his 303 yards from scrimmage were the most in franchise history and the seventh-most in an NFL game in the Super Bowl era.

Las Vegas finished with 283 yards rushing, and its 576 total yards were the third-most ever allowed by the Seahawks (6-5).

Las Vegas forced overtime thanks to Derek Carr’s 5-yard touchdown toss to Foster Moreau in the corner of the end zone with 1:54 remaining.


CHIEFS 26, RAMS 10: Patrick Mahomes threw for 320 yards and a touchdown, and Kansas City (9-2) slogged its way to a victory at home against beat-up Los Angeles (3-8).

Playing without Matthew Stafford, who remained in the concussion protocol, the Rams (3-8) struggled to move the ball behind Bryce Perkins, a career backup making his first start. The Rams’ five-game losing streak and their record through 11 games matches the 1987 Giants for the worst among defending Super Bowl champs, though New York’s dismal start came amid a strike resulting in the use of replacement players.

49ERS 13, SAINTS 0: San Francisco (7-4) forced two fumbles from Alvin Kamara and became the first team in nearly 21 years to hold New Orleans (4-8) scoreless, beat the visiting Saints for its fourth straight win.

The Niners set the tone on defense from the opening drive, when Fred Warner forced a fumble by Kamara that he recovered.

They stopped the Saints near the goal line twice in the second half – including another fumble by Kamara – to post their first shutout since beating Washington 9-0 on Oct. 20, 2019.

CHARGERS 25, CARDINALS 24: Justin Herbert threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Austin Ekeler with 15 seconds left, then hit Gerald Everett for a 2-point conversion to give Los Angeles (6-5) a win over Arizona (4-8) at Glendale, Arizona.


Herbert completed 35 of 47 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns as the Chargers snapped a two-game skid. Arizona has lost four of five.

COMMANDERS 19, FALCONS 13: Taylor Heinicke threw for two touchdown passes in a run-heavy game in the rain, Kendall Fuller intercepted Marcus Mariota in the end zone with 58 seconds left, and Washington (7-5) won at home for its sixth win in seven games.

Playing to each team’s strength on offense regardless of the weather, the Commanders and Falcons (5-7) were content to keep the ball on the ground and take some shots throwing it.

Washington ran 37 times for 176 yards to Atlanta’s 29 for 167 – using five different ball carriers.

PANTHERS 23, BRONCOS 10: Sam Darnold threw for a touchdown and recovered his own fumble for another score in his first game of the season, helping Carolina (4-8) beat visiting Denver (3-8).

Darnold completed 11 of 19 passes for 164 yards without a turnover. He got help from D’Onta Foreman, who ran for 113 yards on 24 carries, and receiver D.J. Moore, who broke out of a midseason slump with four catches for 103 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown.

EAGLES 40, PACKERS 33: Jalen Hurts ran for 157 yards to set an Eagles record for a quarterback, and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers suffered an oblique injury in Philadelphia’s victory over visiting Green Bay (4-8).

Hurts also threw for 153 yards and two touchdowns for the NFC-best Eagles, who moved to 10-1 for the fifth time in history. Miles Sanders ran for 143 yards and two scores as Philadelphia rushed for 363 yards overall, the second-best total for the franchise.

Rodgers left in the third quarter with his team trailing 34-23 after grimacing his way through a drive that led to a field goal. He had already been playing with a broken thumb and took several hard hits.
