Dallas Upset, Chiefs, Steelers Win, Clinch

NEW YORK -- Pittsburgh and Kansas City have clinched NFL division championships and except for Norv Turner, the Dallas Cowboys might have been in the playoffs, too.


Turner, offensive coordinator for two Dallas Super Bowl champions, coached Washington to a 24-17 victory Sunday and a season's sweep of the Cowboys. Dallas is 10-3 for the season but 0-2 against Turner's Redskins.


Chiefs 29, Raiders 23. Kansas City got a season-high 124 yards from Marcus Allen, 35, and wrapped up the AFC West. The Chiefs (11-2) won their second title in three years as Allen became the first player in the NFL's 77-year history to run for more than 10,000 yards and catch 5,000 yards in passes.


Steelers 21, Oilers 7. Pittsburgh stretched its winning streak to an NFL-high six games and wrapped up its third AFC Central championship in coach Bill Cowher's four seasons. Neil O'Donnell threw a pair of first-half touchdown passes; Bam Morris ran for 102 yards.


Redskins 24, Cowboys 17. Terry Allen scored two touchdowns and Heath Shuler passed for another as Washington (4-9) snapped a four-game losing streak. The Redskins also beat Dallas in the fifth game of the year.


Broncos 31, Jaguars 23. John Elway compensated for Denver's poor special-teams play, passing for four touchdowns as the Broncos improved their playoff hopes. Denver (7-6) is tied with Indianapolis and Miami for the final two AFC wild-card slots.


Chargers 31, Browns 13. Rookie Aaron Hayden, replacing injured Natrone Means, rushed 32 times for 127 yards and his first two NFL touchdowns.


Seahawks 26, Eagles 14. Seattle used a career-best four field goals by Todd Peterson to beat Philadelphia, which lost for just the second time in nine games. The Seahawks have won four of the last five.


Panthers 13, Colts 10. Carolina won its sixth game and fourth straight at home, using a face-mask penalty by Derwin Gray to set up John Kasay's 38-yard winning field goal. The Panthers sacked Jim Harbaugh, the NFL's top-rated passer, six times, knocking him from the game with a sprained knee.


Packers 24, Bengals 10. Brett Favre threw three touchdowns and completed 31 of 43 passes for 339 yards, his fifth 300-yard game this year and 10th of his career. Favre became the third-fastest quarterback in NFL history to reach 100 career touchdown passes, reaching the plateau in his 62nd game. The record of 44 games was set by Dan Marino from 1983-86. Johnny Unitas did it in 53 games from 1956-60.


Dolphins 21, Falcons 20. Marino threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Irving Fryar with 11 seconds left, and Miami rallied with two touchdowns in the last eight minutes to end a three-game losing streak. Marino took Miami 72 yards in the final 1:49 for the winning score.


Vikings 31, Buccaneers 17. Minnesota's defense had eight sacks to overpower Tampa Bay. Quarterback Trent Dilfer absorbed six sacks before being ejected for fighting with tackle John Randle.


Rams 23, Jets 20. Stymied for most of the day, Isaac Bruce broke free for a pair of touchdown catches to lead St. Louis. Bruce, the league's leading receiver in passing yardage, was not a factor for almost three quarters. But he caught touchdowns of one and 11 yards from backup Mark Rypien and finished with six receptions for 69 yards.


Saints 31, Patriots 17. New Orleans used three big scoring plays to move closer to the playoffs in a season that began with five losses. The Saints have won five of their last six.


They were backed by Jim Everett's touchdown passes of 50 yards to Quinn Early and 69 yards to Lorenzo Neal and Mario Bates' 66-yard touchdown run.


49ers 27, Bills 17. In San Francisco, linebacker Lee Woodall returned a fumble 96 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter to snap a tie, and the San Francisco 49ers' defense forced five turnovers in a 27-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
