(Sporting Alert) — The following are the scores, results and records from the NFL schedule that took place in Week 12 on Sunday, Nov. 23.
Philadelphia Eagles (8-3) scored the most points in Week 12, while the Arizona Cardinals (9-2) had its six game winning streak snapped.
At the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, the Eagles scored 27 first half points en route to a 43-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans (2-9).
Josh Huff got the home side off to a flying start after he returned the opening kickoff 107 yards with just 13-seconds gone off the clock.
“We talk about starting fast, but you can’t start faster than that,” Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly said.
“It takes the wind out of the sails for the other team.”
LeSean McCoy carried the ball 21 times and ran for 130 yards and scored a touchdown for the Eagles, which got huge contributions from special teams.
“That’s what you live for on special teams, to make a big play and give your team a lift,” Huff said.
“We work hard every week on that part of the game, and it’s definitely a great feeling when all your hard work pays off like that.”
In his third successive start for the injured Nick Foles, quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for 307 yards and one touchdown and two interceptions and went 30-of-43 in passing.
Zach Mettenberger finished with 345 yards passing and two touchdowns in the defeat for the Titans.
SEATTLE BEAT CARDINALS
Meanwhile, at CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Seahawks’ (7-4) defense game up big in the home side’s 19-3 victory over the on form Arizona Cardinals (9-2).
Russell Wilson made big plays and went 17 of 22 completed passes and threw for 211 yards and a touchdown for the defending champions, who were recovering from a 24-20 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs a week ago.
The defeat saw the Cardinals’ six-game winning run coming to an end.
MANNING LEADS DENVER COMEBACK
Over in Denver, veteran quarterback Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes, including two fourth-quarter and the Broncos rallied from an 11-point deficit to beat the Miami Dolphins 39-36.
The Broncos (8-3) started slowly and found themselves down 14-3 in the second quarter, but Manning, who completed 28-of-35 passes and threw for 257 yards in the win, said there was never a panic moment.
“I thought the best thing our team did was we stayed pretty calm,” he said. “We just had a real calm demeanor the entire game.
“Everybody did. And that definitely proved to be a key factor late in the game.”
Elsewhere on Sunday, Tom Brady threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns in helping the New England Patriots (9-2) to a commanding 34-9 win over the Detroit Lions (7-4), while the Cleveland Browns (7-4) squeezed out a 26-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons (4-7) and the Indianapolis Colts (7-4) scored a 23-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-10), who were suffering their fourth straight defeat in another poor streak heading the wrong way.
