Texans clinch AFC South
• HOUSTON 30, JACKSONVILLE 6: J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus led the defense and Jonathan Grimes scored twice to help the host Texans (9-7) clinch the AFC South by beating the Jaguars (5-11). Kareem Jackson added a score on an interception return in the fourth quarter. Watt, playing without a cast for the first time since breaking his left hand Dec. 9, had three sacks, forced a fumble and recovered another one.
• MIAMI 20, NEW ENGLAND 10: Tom Brady was sacked twice and knocked down at least half a dozen times, and the Patriots (12-4) fell to the No. 2 seed in the AFC after losing to the host Dolphins (6-10). Brady watched New England's final offensive series from the sideline. With the Patriots eager to protect his health, he threw a season-low 21 passes, but even so was lucky to make it through the game in one piece.
• CINCINNATI 24, BALTIMORE 16: AJ McCarron overcame a rough start and threw a pair of touchdown passes for the host Bengals (12-4), who matched the best record in franchise history but fell short of a bye in the AFC playoffs after beating the Ravens (5-11). The Bengals went to the Super Bowl their other two 12-4 seasons, 1981 and 1988.
• KANSAS CITY 23, OAKLAND 17: Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes and the host Chiefs (11-5) sacked Derek Carr six times to win their 10th game in a row. Kansas City missed out on the AFC West title when Denver won. Oakland finished 7-9.
• INDIANAPOLIS 30, TENNESSEE 24: Recently signed Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley each threw a TD pass in the first half as the host Colts (8-8) avoided a losing season. The Titans (3-11) clinched the No. 1 pick in the draft.
