NFL scores for Week 11:

Bengals 41, Browns 20
The Bengals exploded for 31 points in the second quarter and wound up drubbing the Browns. Jermaine Gresham and Mohamed Sanu both had receiving touchdowns from Andy Dalton in the big quarter. Tony Dye returned a blocked punt 24 yards for a Bengals score and Vontaze Burfict returned a fumble 13 yards in the Cincy victory.

Bills 37, Jets 14
Buffalo picked off Jets quarterback Geno Smith three times Sunday in a route of their AFC East rival. Smith was held to just 103 yard passing and completed just 8-of-23 through the air. E.J. Manuel tossed a pair of touchdowns for the Bills, finding T.J. Graham from 34 yards out in the second quarter and Marquise Goodwin from 43 yards out in the third.

Eagles 24, Redskins
Philly built a 24-point lead against the Redskins and nearly watched it crumble in the fourth quarter, but when Brandon Boykin intercepted a Robert Griffin III pass with less than a minute to go, it gave the Eagles their first win at Lincoln Financial Field since Sept. 30, 2012.

Steelers 37, Lions 27
The Lions looked as though they were about to blow out the Steelers by halftime as they scored a whopping 27 points in the second quarter alone, led by Calvin Johnson’s pair of TD grabs. But Ben Roethlisberger shined brightest in the second half as he threw two touchdown passes in the final five minutes to upset the Lions.

Buccaneers 41, Falcons 28
Tampa Bay won its second straight game after starting the season 0-8 as Bobby Rainey rushed for 163 yards and three touchdowns. Matt Ryan was picked off twice by the Buccaneers and Atlanta fell to 2-8 on the season.

Cardinals 27, Jaguars 14
Carson Palmer had a throwback afternoon, passing for 419 yards without an interception in leading Arizona past Jacksonville. The Cards scored 20 unanswered points after the first quarter and won their third straight game to move to 6-4 on the year.

Raiders 28, Texans 23
Gary Kubiak returned to the sidelines for Houston but the Texans were unable to give their head coach a win as they fell to 2-8. Raiders rookie QB Matt McGloin tossed three touchdown passes in the Oakland victory.

Bears 23, Ravens 20
The Bears and Ravens kicked off just after 1 p.m. Sunday. A winner wasn’t decided until just after 6 p.m. thanks to a two-hour delay caused by a torrential downpour in Chicago. Matt Forte’s 14-yard touchdown reception with 10:42 left in the fourth quarter gave the Bears a 20-17 lead. Baltimore would force overtime thanks to a 21-yard Justin Tucker field goal with seven seconds left in regulation but Chicago kicker Robbie Gould would win it for the Bears in OT with a 38-yard boot that was true. Bears quarterback Josh McCown threw for 216 yards on 19-of-31 passing and did not throw an interception. Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw a pair of picks on the afternoon.
