(Reuters) - The Seattle Seahawks used a stifling defense for a 24-14 road victory over the Philadelphia Eagles but Seattle's NFC West rivals the San Francisco 49ers were stunned by the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes and ran in another for Seattle, as the defending Super Bowl champions improved to 9-4 and remained a game behind division leader Arizona, which held the Kansas City Chiefs scoreless in the second half for a 17-14 victory.

San Francisco, though, had their playoff hopes severely damaged when the 49ers (7-6) were upended 24-13 by the Raiders (2-11).

Derek Carr passed for three touchdowns as Oakland rallied from a 13-10 deficit with the game's final 14 points.

San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick managed only one touchdown, completing just 18-of-33 passes for 174 yards.

In the AFC, the Denver Broncos beat the Buffalo Bills 24-17 but Denver quarterback Peyton Manning’s streak of 51 games with at least one touchdown pass ended.

Manning was intercepted twice as C.J. Anderson ran for three touchdowns.

In Cleveland, the Indianapolis Colts scored with seconds to play to avoid an upset as they beat the Browns 25-24 to move a step closer to locking up the top spot in the AFC South.

Quarterback Andrew Luck found T.Y. Hilton for a one-yard touchdown with 32 seconds left for the victory as Indianapolis improved to 9-4.   Continued...
