Feeley shocked the world of the National Football League by going 27-for-42 and three touchdowns, but it was the second of three interceptions that stopped the Eagles (5-5) from pulling the upset of the year and the New England Patriots (10-0) escaped with a 31-28 win.

Igor Olshansky recorded five tackles including a sack and forced a fumble as his San Diego Chargers (5-5) downed the Baltimore Ravens, 32-14. Haloti Ngata had five solo tackles and an assist for the Ravens, whose record now drops to 4-6 for the year.

Wide receiver Samie Parker had a catch for nine yards but his Kansas City Chiefs (3-8) lost to the Oakland Raiders 20-17. The win improved the Raiders record to 3-8.

Despite losing 41-17, the New York Giants (7-4) gave the ball to running back Reuben Droughns who had 15 carries for 46 yards and touchdown. He also grabbed a pass for six yards. The Minnesota Vikings improved their record to 5-6 with the win over the Giants.

The Seattle Seahawks improved to 7-4 for the year with a 24-19 win over the St. Louis Rams. Running back Maurice Morris carried the ball 16 times for 79 yards with a long run of 46. Morris also had a catch for five yards.

Punter Josh Bidwell had seven punts, averaging 42 yards with a long of 61 and three inside the 20 as his Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-4) stopped the Washington Redskins, 19-13. The Redskins are now 5-6 for the season.

Tight end George Wrighster had two catches for 12 yards for the Jacksonville Jaguars (8-3) in a 36-14 victory over the Buffalo Bills (5-6).
