Jets 30, Patriots 27 (OT)

Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime to lift New York over New England in East Rutherford, N.J. Folk got a second chance after he missed a 56-yarder moments earlier. But Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule. New York, given new life, ran the ball three times to set up Folk’s winner. Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score for the Jets (4-3). New England (5-2) tied it at 27 with 16 seconds left in regulation on Stephen Gostkowski’s 44-yard FG.

Bills 23, Dolphins 21

Mario Williams forced a fumble when he sacked Ryan Tannehill with less than three minutes left, setting up the winning FG as Buffalo (3-4) held on to win at Miami Gardens, Fla. Dan Carpenter, released in August after five seasons with the Dolphins, beat his former team by making a 31-yarder with 33 seconds to go. Rookie Nickell Robey returned an interception 19 yards for a TD on the third play of the game to help the Bills build an early 14-0 lead, but they had to rally after Brandon Gibson (WSU) caught his second touchdown pass of the game to put Miami (3-3) ahead.

Bengals 27, Lions 24

Mike Nugent’s 54-yard FG as time expired lifted Cincinnati to a road win over Detroit.

Andy Dalton, who threw three touchdown passes, took advantage with two short passes to set up the winning field goal for the Bengals (5-2). Detroit QB Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson on two of his three TDs.
