Cowboys 24, Redskins 23

Tony Romo recovered from a bad interception and rallied the Cowboys from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit in the win at Landover, Md. The victory ended a two-game Dallas skid – as well as a five-game December losing streak – and sets up a winner-take-all regular season finale for the NFC East title next week, when the Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles. The Redskins lost their seventh straight.

Titans 20, Jaguars 16

Nate Washington scored on a 30-yard reception in the fourth quarter and Tennessee got a much-needed defensive stop late to end a three-game losing streak by getting the victory in Jacksonville. Tennessee overcame a 10-point deficit in the second half and won for just the third time since September. The highlight for the Jaguars came when Jacksonville honored retiring center Brad Meester with a reception – the pass-catching kind. The Jaguars called a screen play for the 14-year veteran center who announced Wednesday that Sunday’s game would be his home finale.

Giants 23, Lions 20 (OT)

Josh Brown’s 45-yard field goal on the third drive of overtime lifted the Giants and knocked the Lions from postseason consideration in a game at Detroit. The Lions lost for the fifth time in six games, blowing fourth-quarter leads in each setback that might seal coach Jim Schwartz’s fate. The embattled coach chose to play for overtime by running out the clock with 23 seconds and two timeouts left from the Detroit 25.

Steelers 38, Packers 31

At Green Bay, Wis., Le’Veon Bell ran for a 1-yard touchdown with 1:28 left, then Pittsburgh withstood the Packers’ last throw into the end zone and dealt Green Bay’s playoff hopes a blow. It’s a long shot, but the Steelers are still mathematically in the hunt for an AFC wild-card spot. They need a lot of help.
