Miami Dolphins 13 - New York Jets 6

Less than 24 hours after the Canes trudged through Hard Rock Stadium in a monsoon, the Dolphins and Jets had to deal with less than ideal playing conditions on the same field.

The game did go on as planned, and the Dolphins were able to come out on top in the extremely sloppy game. While the Miami offense was unable to find the endzone, they did move the ball enough to get the win, thanks to RB Frank Gore’s team-leading 53 rushing yards, which were also enough to move him up to 6th on the NFL all-time yards from scrimmage list with 18,196 yards, passing the great Barry Sanders, who amassed 18,190.

Pittsburgh Steelers 23 - Baltimore Ravens 16

Steelers DE Anthony Chickillo had a strong showing for a Pittsburgh defense that played one of their best games of the season. Chickillo finished the win with 4 tackles, including one tackle for loss.

Houston Texans 19 - Denver Broncos 17
