FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots defense came alive just in time. It may have to make an even bigger contribution with Rob Gronkowski likely out for a while with an arm injury.
Houston, Dallas and Tampa Bay made it pay off by earning victories Sunday. Jacksonville, Cleveland and Carolina all blew leads to lose in OT.
Blaine Gabbert of the Jaguars is the latest quarterback sidelined by injury, leaving Sunday's game against the Houston Texans in the first quarter with a bruised right elbow.
