Chad Henne tossed two TD passes to give the Jaguars a 14-7 lead and was driving his team for another score when Brown brought back an interception 79 yards to tie it at 14-14 with 1:48 left in the first half. Reynaud's first punt return, a 69-yarder with 33 seconds left in the half, put the Titans ahead to stay.
Reynaud added an 81-punt return 2:06 into the third quarter and Brown return another pick 30 yards for a score only 51 seconds later to extend the lead to 35-14.
GAME NOTEBOOK: Henne finished 25-of-41 for 298 yards with two TDs and three interceptions for Jacksonville, which failed to secure the No. 1 pick in April's draft after Kansas City fell 38-3 to Denver later Sunday. ... Titans QB Jake Locker threw for only 152 yards on 9-of-15. ... The Jaguars trailed at halftime despite a wide edge in yardage (280-102) and first downs (15-5).
Bills 28, Jets 9
C.J. Spiller totaled 131 all-purpose yards, including a 66-yard touchdown reception from Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second quarter to pace the Bills (6-10). Fitzpatrick finished 12-for-26 for 225 yards, while Stevie Johnson caught six passes for 111 yards.
A week after being benched, Mark Sanchez returned to the lineup and his mistake-filled ways for New York (6-10). Sanchez threw an interception which Bryan Scott returned 20 yards for a touchdown to give Buffalo a 7-3 lead in the first quarter, and he also lost his 16th fumble of the season. Sanchez finished 17-for-35 for 205 yards.
The Jets, which lost for the third straight time, dominated control of the ball in the first half but continuously stalled in the red zone and trailed 14-9 at the break. Nick Folk accounted for all the New York scoring with three field goals.
After Smith's short TD scamper gave the Bills a 21-9 lead, Tashard Choice completed the scoring with a 13-yard scoring run with 1:10 remaining.
Bengals 23, Ravens 17
The Ravens had an outside shot at jumping up into the No. 3 spot in the playoffs but instead decided to rest most of their regulars. Joe Flacco attempted only eight passes before yielding to Tyrod Taylor, who passed for 149 yards and rushed for 65 and a score.
The Bengals elected to sit running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (hamstring) and only threw two passes A.J. Green's way before giving way to the backups. Cincinnati will be the No. 6 seed in the AFC and will play either Denver, New England or Houston in the divisional round next week.
Marvin Jones caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Dalton with 45 seconds left in the second quarter to knot it at 7-7 at the half. Josh Brown put the Bengals on top with a pair of field goals in the third quarter before Taylor's 1-yard scoring run gave the Ravens the lead 14-13 with 12:58 left.
Brown's 38-yard field goal 5:38 later gave Cincinnati the advantage back and Dunlap's 14-yard interception return on the ensuing drive sealed the win.
