• Colts coach Chuck Pagano received a standing ovation from the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd during Sunday's game against Buffalo. With 11:23 left in the fourth quarter, team owner Jim Irsay walked outside his owner's box with Pagano and the two waved to the crowd.Pagano has not been involved with the usual day-to-day operations since being diagnosed with leukemia Sept. 26. His doctor said earlier this month that the cancer was in complete remission.

• Bears receiver and return specialist Devin Hester left Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with a concussion. The injury occurred early in the game, although it was not clear exactly when.

• Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster left Sunday's game against the Broncos to be evaluated for a head and neck injury, and safety Kendrick Lewis left with a right shoulder injury.

• The Colts' Reggie Wayne broke the NFL record for most consecutive games with multiple receptions. Cris Carter held the previous mark of 58. Wayne has had at least two catches in 59 straight games, including eight for 102 yards in Sunday's 20-13 victory over the Bills.

• Marques Colston scored the 56th touchdown of his career and with New Orleans, surpassing Saints' all-time rusher Deuce McAllister for the club record.

• Ernie Warlick, among pro football's first pass-catching tight ends and a member of the Bills' two AFL championship teams in the 1960s, died after a brief illness. He was 80.

• Stadium lawn sprinklers briefly showered the Dolphins and Seahawks during the third quarter of their game. The sprinklers came on between plays and covered most of the field, drawing a cheer from the crowd and causing a brief delay.
