In Foxborough, the Miami Dolphins used their first-half time-outs wisely to get in position for this play to Mike Wallace to close to within a point of the Patriots.
Tom Brady and the Patriots came out roaring in the second half and completely dominated, scoring 24 unanswered points en route to a victory and their sixth AFC East title in a row. Brady, who threw a pair of touchdown passes, also took off on his longest run of the season which came to a bit of an abrupt end.
When both teams are 2-11 as the Jets and Titans were, tempers tend to be a bit short. The Jets didn't appreciate the Titans roughing up quarterback Geno Smith and the teams came together to discuss more than what's on their Christmas shopping list. For the record, the Jets won their third game of the season, 16-11.
The one bright spot for the now 5-9 New York Giants has been receiver Odell Beckham Jr., he of the one-hand grab earlier in the season. Odell was at it again with 12 catches and a nice TD grab, one of three in the game, which he followed with an end-zone celebratory dance. Giants took down the Redskins, 24-13.
Also contributing a great catch was Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown. The Steelers are in the thick of the NFC North division battle where all four teams entered the weekend with a chance at the title. Brown helped the Steelers stay right behind Cincinnati in their 27-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
