The Jacksonville Jaguars finally recorded their first win while the Indianapolis Colts were on the wrong end of a huge upset in week 10 of the NFL season.

The Jaguars never trailed against the Tennessee Titans as they finally broke their duck for the year, Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman each running in a touchdown in their 29-27 triumph.

The Titans scored twice in the final five minutes, including a 14-yard TD pass by Ryan Fitzpatrick to Delanie Walker with 40 seconds left. However, they proved unable to gather the onside kick, meaning Jacksonville were finally able to get a maiden win for head coach Gus Bradley.

The defeat for the Titans was at least a crumb of comfort for their divisional rivals the Colts, after they ran into the St Louis Rams and Tavon Austin at Lucas Oil Field on Sunday.

The rookie receiver had only two catches, both for touchdowns, and also returned a punt 98 yards to the end zone to help the Rams thrash their hosts 38-8. Andrew Luck finished 29 of 47 for 353 yards with one TD and three interceptions for Indianapolis.

The Baltimore Ravens ended a three-game losing run with a thrilling 20-17 victory over AFC North rivals the Cincinnati Bengals, Justin Tucker's 46-yard field goal setting a see-saw contest.

The Ravens, who had not recorded a victory since October 6, had held a 17-point lead only for the Bengals to come roaring back, tying the game as time expired when AJ Green caught a Hail Mary pass from Andy Dalton that was tipped twice before reaching the receiver.

Nick Foles was at it again for Philadelphia, the quarterback following up his record-tying seven touchdown passes against the Oakland Raiders last time out with another three in the Eagles' 27-13 victory over Green Bay.

While Foles - who twice teamed up with Riley Cooper for scores - excelled the Packers laboured without injured starter Aaron Rodgers, their cause not being helped when his replacement, Seneca Wallace, was forced off the field with a groin problem. Third stringer Scott Tolzien - signed off the practice squad this week - managed 280 yards and a touchdown under centre.

Intercepted

The home reverse, their worst at Lambeau Field since December of 2006, means Green Bay have surrendered their lead in the NFC North to the Detroit Lions, who defeated the Chicago Bears in the early Sky live game.

Marshawn Lynch ran all over the Atlanta Falcons, going for 145 yards and a score on the ground in Seattle's 33-10 victory. Quarterback Russell Wilson also managed a pair of touchdown passes as the Seahawks easily won a rematch of last year's NFC Divisional play-off clash.

The New York Giants made it three wins in a row with a 24-20 result against the Oakland Raiders, the highlight of which was a 65-yard interception return by Terrell Thomas for a touchdown.

EJ Manuel didn't enjoy a successful return from injury, Buffalo's rookie quarterback unable to prevent his Bills going down 23-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who bounced back in style after giving up over 600 yards of offense to the New England Patriots the previous weekend.

Drayton Florence intercepted Colin Kaepernick in the final minute of the game as the Carolina Panthers ended the San Francisco 49ers' five-game winning streak by edging a defensive battle 10-9 in California.

The Houston Texans suffered a franchise-record seventh consecutive loss as they went down 27-24 to the Arizona Cardinals.

Quarterback Drew Brees threw for 392 yards and four touchdowns as the New Orleans Saints set an NFL record with 40 first downs during their 49-17 rout of the Dallas Cowboys.
