NFL Scores, Week 12: Bengals Beat Browns, Texans Lose Matt Leinart In Victory

Here’s a look at Week 12 scores from 1:00 Sunday games around the NFL.

Most crucially for Steelers fans, the Bengals beat the Browns 23-20, which means the Bengals are now 7-4, just a half-game behind the Steelers and a game behind the Ravens in the AFC North. The Bengals probably won’t still be hanging around at the end of the year, but it’s way too early to count them out.

The Texans beat the Jaguars 20-13, but Matt Leinart suffered a shoulder injury, which could prove costly for Houston, which has already lost Matt Schaub.

Mark Sanchez threw for four touchdowns (despite otherwise being unimpressive, completing 17 of 35 passes for 180 yards) as the Jets beat the Bills, 28-24.

The Falcons moved to 7-4 by beating the Vikings 24-14. Chris Johnson had 190 yards rushing as the Titans beat the Bucs, 23-17. The Panthers beat the winless Colts, 27-19. And the Cardinals stopped the Rams, 23-20.
