Keenum, Vikings keep rolling

Associated Press

LANDOVER, Md. – Case Keenum threw touchdowns to four different receivers to build a big lead, and the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings won their fifth in a row, beating Washington 38-30 Sunday despite two second-half interceptions.

Keenum was 21 of 29 for 304 yards and TD passes to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, David Morgan and Jarius Wright. He was picked off on consecutive throws by D.J. Swearinger.

Thielen had eight catches for a season-high 166 yards.

Latavius Murray also ran for a score as five players got into the end zone for Minnesota (7-2).

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins had three TDs — two rushing and one passing — and was 26 of 45 for 327 yards with an interception. The Redskins (4-5) failed to build off an upset victory at Seattle and now find themselves on an uphill climb in the wild-card race.

JAGUARS 20, CHARGERS 17, OT: In Jacksonville, Florida, Josh Lambo kicked a 30-yard field goal with 3:12 remaining in overtime, even though the ball got tipped at the line of scrimmage, and Jacksonville has it first three-game winning streak since 2013.

The game ended up in overtime after a wild and wacky final two minutes of regulation that included a fumble, two interceptions, a taunting penalty and a costly flag for roughing the passer.

Blake Bortles completed 28 of 51 passes for 273 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions for Jacksonville. Leonard Fournette ran for 33 yards on 17 carries and failed to score for the first time in his rookie season.

The Chargers' Philip Rivers threw for 235 yards and two scores to Austin Ekeler.

BUCCANEERS 15, JETS 10: In Tampa, Florida, Ryan Fitzpatrick led two long scoring drives as Tampa Bay snapped a five-game losing streak. Charles Sims put the game out of reach with a 6-yard touchdown reception with just over six minutes remaining.

Fitzpatrick completed 17 of 34 passes for 187 yards and was intercepted once.

The Jets' Josh McCown was 23 of 39 for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Robby Anderson caught a 38-yard TD pass in the final minute for the Jets, scoring for the fourth straight game.

But Tampa Bay's Chris Godwin recovered the onside kick.

SAINTS 47, BILLS 10: In Orchard Park, New York, Mark Ingram scored a career-best three touchdowns as New Orleans won its seventh straight game.

Alvin Kamara also had a 3-yard touchdown rushing as the Saints blew the game open by scoring five times on their first six possessions. Ingram finished with 131 yards rushing.

The Saints finished with 298 yards rushing and 32 first downs. New Orleans set a franchise record by scoring six touchdowns rushing, and it marked the most allowed by Buffalo in team history.

49ERS 31, GIANTS 21: In Santa Clara, California, C.J. Beathard threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a third score to lead San Francisco to its first win. Beathard connected on an 83-yard TD to Marquise Goodwin and a 47-yarder to Garrett Celek in the second quarter.

The Giants have not fired a coach during the season since 1976 when Bill Arnsparger was let go after a 0-7 start and replaced by John McVay, but Ben McAdoo has one victory this season.

RAMS 33, TEXANS 7: In Los Angeles, Robert Woods caught two of Jared Goff's three touchdown passes during a dominant third quarter for Los Angeles. The Rams defense shut out Houston in the second half and won at the Coliseum for just the third time in 11 games since returning to Los Angeles.

Woods finished with eight catches for 171 yards. 

PATRIOTS 41, BRONCOS 16: In Denver, Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes as New England claimed its 12th consecutive road victory.
