UNDATED (AP) -- The New England Patriots had won 12 straight games against AFC East rivals and had come away victorious in their last six meetings with the New York Jets. But the Jets got a break this afternoon and beat the Pats 30-27 on Nick Folk's 42-yard field goal with 5:07 remaining in overtime.

Folk missed a 56-yard try moments earlier, but the Jets were able to keep the ball after Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule.

New York eventually pulled out the victory and improved to 4-3 after Stephen Gostkowski hit a game-tying, 44-yard field goal with 16 seconds left in regulation.

Geno Smith was 17 of 33 for 233 yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception that Logan Ryan returned 79 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. Antonio Allen returned the favor for the Jets by bringing back a Tom Brady interception 23 yards for a third-quarter score.

Brady was just 22 of 46 for 228 yards and no touchdowns for the 5-2 Patriots.

The Dallas Cowboys have grabbed sole possession of the NFC East lead at 4-3 by silencing the Eagles 17-3 in Philadelphia. Tony Romo passed for 317 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys, who led just 3-0 after the two teams combined for 13 punts in the first half.

The Dallas defense held NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy to 55 yards on 18 carries. McCoy was outplayed by Cowboys rookie Joseph Randle, who had 65 yards.

Eagles signal-caller Nick Foles left his game with a head injury after being sacked by George Selvie and Jarius Wynn on the final play of the third quarter.

The 3-4 Eagles have dropped a team-record nine straight at home since a win over the Giants in Sept. 2012.

The Chicago Bears struggled against Robert Griffin III, who had his best game of the season in leading Washington to a 45-41 victory. Chicago led 41-38 until Roy Helu (heh-LOO') scored his third touchdown of the game with 45 seconds left.

Griffin was 18 of 29 for 298 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran 11 times for a season-high 84 yards.

Jordan Reed was Griffin's prime target with nine receptions for 134 yards and a TD for the 2-4 Skins.

Matt Forte ran for three touchdowns, and backup quarterback Josh McNown threw for 204 yards and a TD after Jay Cutler left with a groin injury.

The Bears dipped to 4-3 while the Redskins improved to 2-4.

Mike Nugent kicked a game-winning field goal for the second straight week, this one a 54-yard boot as time expired to lift Cincinnati past Detroit 27-24. The Bengals gained good field position once rookie Sam Martin shanked a punt just 28 yards to midfield in the final minute.

Andy Dalton threw for three TDs and later took advantage with two short passes to set up the game-winning field goal.

Detroit's Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson on two of his three TD passes.

The 5-2 Bengals dropped the Lions to 4-3.

Dan Carpenter beat his old team by hitting a 31-yard field goal with 33 seconds left in Buffalo's 23-21 comeback against Miami. Mario Williams set up the winning kick by sacking Ryan Tannehill with less than three minutes left.

Rookie Nickell Robey returned an interception 19 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game to help the Bills build an early 14-0 lead, but they had to rally after Brandon Gibson caught his second touchdown pass of the game to put Miami ahead.

The 3-4 Bills ended a streak of six consecutive road losses while handing the 3-3 Dolphins their third straight loss.

Matt Ryan had 273 passing yards and threw two of his scoring tosses to Jacquizz Rodgers as Atlanta downed Tampa Bay 31-23 to end a three-game skid and improve to 2-4. Harry Douglas had seven receptions for a career-best 149 yards for the Falcons, including a 37-yard touchdown catch.

Thomas DeCoud returned the fumble recovery 30 yards for a touchdown to help the Falcons drop the Buccaneers to 0-6.

San Diego is 4-3 after Philip Rivers threw for 285 yards and a touchdown in a 24-6 win over Jacksonville, leaving the Jaguars winless at 0-7. Rivers completed his first 14 passes and finished 22-of-26 for the Chargers, who had the ball for 37 ½ minutes.

Ryan Mathews ran for 110 yards and a score as the Chargers made the Jags the first team since the 1984 Oilers to lose its first seven games by at least 10 points.
