Nick Foles, Eagles: had a rookie-record 32 completions while throwing for 381 yards and two touchdowns to help Philadelphia end an eight-game skid - the team's longest in 42 years - with a 23-21 victory at Tampa Bay.
Cam Newton, Panthers: had two touchdown tosses and ran 72 yards for another score, finishing with a career-high 116 yards rushing, to lead Carolina past Atlanta 30-20. He's the first player in NFL history with at least 250 yards passing, 100 yards rushing and a TD pass and run in the same game.
Philip Rivers, Chargers: threw three touchdown passes, two to Danario Alexander, in San Diego's 34-24 win over Pittsburgh.
Eli Manning, Giants: threw four touchdown passes as New York cruised to a 52-27 rout of New Orleans.
Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers: completed 22 of 42 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns in his first game back - a 34-24 loss to San Diego - after spraining his right shoulder and dislocating a rib nearly a month ago.
Jamaal Charles, Chiefs: ran for 165 yards, breaking off an 80-yard TD run on the game's first play for Kansas City, in a 30-7 loss at Cleveland.
Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks: had 128 yards on 11 carries with three touchdowns in Seattle's 58-0 win over Arizona.
Doug Martin, Buccaneers: rushed for 128 yards and a score in a losing cause as Tampa Bay fell to Philadelphia 23-21.

- Winning points were scored in the final 2 minutes or overtime in four games Sunday, bringing the season total to 47 such games - tied for the most through the first 14 weeks of a season.
- Cleveland's 23-point margin of victory was its largest since 2003 - a significant accomplishment for a franchise with 11 double-digit loss seasons since 1999.
- Baltimore (9-4) would have clinched the AFC North with a win over Washington. Instead, the Ravens ended a 15-game winning streak following a loss, dropping back-to-back games for the first time since 2009. Meanwhile, the Redskins have their first four-game winning streak since 2008 and have six 30-point games, their most since 1996.
- Arizona's 58-0 loss to Seattle was its ninth straight, the longest slide for the franchise since 1944. It was the worst shutout loss in Cardinals history and their first time being shut out since losing 38-0 to the Seahawks in 2003.
