Published: Sunday, Sept. 23 2012 10:00 p.m. MDT

Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 177 yard, but Jacksonville (2-1) needed Gabbert's big play. The Colts (1-2) had taken the lead 17-16 after Andrew Luck drove them 48 yards in five plays to set up Adam Vinatieri's 37-yard field goal with 56 seconds left.

COWBOYS 16, BUCCANEERS 10: At Arlington, Texas, DeMarco Murray had an 11-yard touchdown run, Dan Bailey kicked three field goals and Dallas won its home opener.

A week after the Buccaneers' big push against the Giants in their victory formation, Tampa Bay used a pair of timeouts in the final 40 seconds after a failed onside kick attempt.

BENGALS 38, REDSKINS 31: At Landover, Md., Andy Dalton completed 19 of 27 passes for 328 yards and three touchdowns for Cincinnati.

The Bengals blew a 24-7 first-half lead, but two touchdown passes by Dalton in the fourth quarter made the difference.

BEARS 23, RAMS 6: At Chicago, Major Wright returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown and Chicago's defense had six sacks on Sam Bradford and held St. Louis to 160 total yards.

That was enough on a day when Jay Cutler struggled, and the Bears (2-1) came away with the win after an ugly loss to Green Bay the previous week. The Rams fell to 1-2.

BILLS 24, BROWNS 14: At Cleveland, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three touchdown passes and Buffalo overcame the loss of running back C.J. Spiller in snapping an eight-game road losing streak.

Fitzpatrick finished 22 of 35 for 208 yards as the Bills (2-1) turned to their passing game after Spiller, the NFL's leading rusher, was lost in the first quarter with a shoulder injury.

RAVENS 32, PATRIOTS 31: At Baltimore, Justin Tucker kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired in a rematch of the AFC championship game.

Torrey Smith, who was playing less than 24 hours after the death of his 19-year-old brother, had six catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns for the Ravens.

Baltimore (2-1) won its 12th straight at home behind Joe Flacco, who went 28 for 39 for 382 yards and three touchdowns.
