The Latest on Week 12 of the NFL season (all times Eastern):

3:15 p.m.

Breathe easy, Patriots fans. As expected, Tom Brady is active, and so is Rob Gronkowski.

The New England star quarterback and tight end were both listed as questionable heading into the team's game Sunday against the New York Jets.

Brady missed two days of practice with a knee injury, but returned Friday - although the Patriots were taking a wait-and-see approach. Gronkowski missed last week's game at San Francisco with a chest injury and it appeared early in the week that he would also miss this week, but he improved enough for the Patriots to make him active.

Tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) and wide receivers Julian Edelman (foot) and Chris Hogan (back) are also playing after being listed as questionable, making all of Brady's top targets available. - Dennis Waszak Jr. reporting from East Rutherford, New Jersey.

3 p.m.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has opened the second half by scoring on a 75-yard touchdown - the longest run of his career - against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

His previous career-long was a 66-yard gain in 2009, his rookie season.

The touchdown was also McCoy's second of the game after he scored on a 7-yard run in the final minute of the first half.

McCoy has now scored two or more touchdowns in three games this season, the most by a Bills player since running back Willis McGahee did that five times in 2004.

2:40 p.m.

Another big drop by Atlanta receiver Julio Jones led to a possible six-point swing at the end of the first half vs. the Arizona Cardinals.

With the Falcons leading 17-10 and in position for a possible field goal to extend their lead, Matt Ryan went to Jones on a quick slant. Jones bobbled the ball, however, and Arizona's D.J. Swearinger grabbed it for an interception with 20 seconds left.

Carson Palmer followed with a 17-yard pass to J.J. Nelson into Atlanta territory. With 5 seconds left, the Falcons dropped everyone deep expecting a Hail Mary throw on the final play. Instead, the Cardinals threw a quick pass to Larry Fitzgerald, who went to the turf in time for Arizona to call a timeout with 1 second left.

Chandler Catanzaro knocked through a 54-yard field goal to cut Atlanta's lead to 17-13 at the break.

Jones also dropped a key pass near the end of the Falcons' most recent game, a loss at Philadelphia two weeks ago.

2:20 p.m.

The New Orleans Saints have surged in front of the Los Angeles Rams thanks to a pair of touchdowns both scored on fourth-and-1 plays less than two minutes apart.

In both situations, the Saints were stuffed on third-and-1 by the Rams, whose defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, held the same post under Saints coach Sean Payton from 2009 to 2011.

On the first, Ingram took a pitch to the left side and used a sharp cut back toward the middle for a 10-yard touchdown that tied the score at 14.
