MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Kenyan Drake ran the last 52 yards as the Miami Dolphins scored on a pass and double lateral on the wild 69-yard final play Sunday to beat the New England Patriots 34-33.
It was the longest touchdown to win a game with no time remaining since the 1970 merger.
The Patriots were 16 seconds from clinching their 10th consecutive AFC East title when the Dolphins pulled off their stunner. Ryan Tannehill threw a 14-yard pass to Kenny Stills, who lateraled to DeVante Parker, who quickly lateraled to Drake. He found a seam and beat two Patriots to the corner of the end zone — defensive back J.C. Jackson and tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was on the field as part of New England’s prevent defense.
Chiefs 27, Ravens 24 : KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Harrison Butker atoned for a 43-yard miss as time expired with a 36-yard field goal in overtime, and the Chiefs stopped the Ravens on fourth down to clinch a playoff spot.

Chargers 26, Bengals 21: CARSON, Calif. — Philip Rivers threw for 220 yards and Michael Badgley kicked four field goals, including a team-record 59-yarder. Rivers completed 19 of 29 and threw a touchdown in what was not one of the team’s best games.

Giants 40, Redskins 16: LANDOVER, Md. — Saquon Barkley rushed for 170 yards, including a 78-yard touchdown to surpass 1,000 yards for the season, and Eli Manning threw for three scores to effectively end Washington’s already-slim playoff hopes.
Jets 27, Bills 23: ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Sam Darnold one-upped fellow rookie Josh Allen, rallying the Jets. Elijah McGuire scored on a fourth-and-goal run from the 1 with 1:17 remaining to cap a drive during which Darnold completed 3 of 5 passes for 52 yards. The rookie quarterback particularly showed off his deft touch on a 37-yard pass to Robby Anderson, who made an over-the-shoulder catch up the right sideline.
