Jets 38, Dolphins 20 (final): The Jets live. The season still matters. They played their most complete game in nearly two months, snapping a two-game losing streak. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brandon Marshall played pitch and catch all day, and the third-down defense dominated Ryan Tannehill. This was a much-needed win for Todd Bowles, who has received criticism in recent weeks.

Jackson takes his sweet time on TD catch

WASHINGTON 20, GIANTS 14 (FINAL): It's tough when you're down three offensive linemen, but Eli Manning picked a bad time to play his worst game of the season. Manning's three interceptions dug the Giants a 20-0 hole from which they could not recover, and Sunday's loss dropped them into a first-place tie with Washington at 5-6. They simply don't have enough depth or talent on their roster to win when they turn the ball over, though that Beckham kid is pretty good.
