KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Green Bay Packers perfect season came to a crashing halt Sunday against the beleaguered Kansas City Chiefs, who rallied behind interim coach Romeo Crennel and new quarterback Kyle Orton to a shocking 19-14 victory.
Orton finished 23 of 31 for 299 yards in his first start for the Chiefs (6-8), who fired coach Todd Haley last Monday with the team having lost five of its last six games. The loss also ended the Packers 19-game winning streak.
Behind an inspired performance by the defense, four field goals by Ryan Succop and Jackie Battles short touchdown run with 4:53 left in the game, Kansas City managed to hand the Packers (13-1) their first loss since Dec. 19, 2010, at New England exactly one day shy of a full year.
Aaron Rodgers was just 17 of 35 for 235 yards and a touchdown, and he also scampered eight yards for another touchdown with 2:12 left in the game.
Colts 27, Titans 13
INDIANAPOLIS Dan Orlovsky threw one touchdown pass and the key block on an 80-yard touchdown run, leading the Colts to their first win of the season.
Indianapolis (1-13) avoided becoming the second team in NFL history to go 0-16. The loss dealt a serious blow to the Titans playoff hopes. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was picked off twice, and Chris Johnson rushed for only 55 yards for Tennessee (7-7).
Seahawks 38, Bears 14
CHICAGO Red Bryant returned an interception 20 yards for the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, and Seattle kept its faint playoff hopes alive.
Chicago quarterback Caleb Hanie was hit hard on the play by K.J. Wright and threw the ball right into Bryants arms as Seattle (7-7) scored two touchdowns in a 50-second span early in the third quarter. Brandon Browner returned another interception 42 yards for a touchdown in the final quarter as the Seahawks outscored Chicago 31-0 in the second half.
Saints 42, Vikings 20
MINNEAPOLIS Drew Brees threw for 412 yards and five touchdowns to lead New Orleans to its sixth win in a row.
Brees completed 32 of 40 passes to help the Saints (11-3) overcome a slow and sloppy start and stay two games ahead of Atlanta in the NFC South.
Redskins 23, Giants 10
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Rex Grossman threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss, and Washington hurt New Yorks playoff hopes.
The loss knocked the Giants (7-7) out of first place in the NFC East. Dallas (8-6) now leads the division by a game with two to go, including one with the Giants on the final weekend. If New York beats the Jets and the Cowboys in its final two games, it will win the division.
Panthers 28, Texans 13
HOUSTON Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes, DeAngelo Williams ran for a score, and Carolina ended Houstons seven-game winning streak.
Newton completed 13 of 23 passes for 149 yards, outplaying opposing rookie quarterback T.J. Yates. The Panthers (5-9) built a 21-0 halftime lead, then ended Houstons second-half rally when linebacker James Anderson intercepted Yates in the end zone midway through the fourth quarter.
Dolphins 30, Bills 23
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Reggie Bush ran for a career-best 203 yards and a touchdown to lead Miami to a win over Buffalo in interim Dolphins coach Todd Bowles first game.

Bengals 20, Rams 13
ST. LOUIS Rookie A.J. Green had six catches and topped 1,000 yards for the season, and Cincinnati kept pace in the AFC playoff race.
Brandon Tates 56-yard punt return set up Bernard Scotts go-ahead touchdown run late in the third quarter.
Eagles 45, Jets 19
PHILADELPHIA LeSean McCoy ran for three touchdowns to set two team records and keep Philadelphia alive in the NFC East race.
The Eagles (6-8) have won two in a row for the second time this season and somehow still have a chance to repeat as division champions despite underachieving most of the year.
Lions 28, Raiders 27
OAKLAND, Calif. Matthew Stafford threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson with 39 seconds remaining to cap a 98-yard scoring drive as Detroit rallied from 13 points down late in the fourth quarter.
