In case you missed it, here were the top stories from FOX Sports Florida for Sunday, Dec. 15:

* Arron Afflalo scored 25, and the Magic mounted a furious comeback in the fourth quarter before falling on the road to the Thunder. Read More

* Nick Bjugstad and Jesse Winchester each scored for Florida during the second period, helping the Panthers hang on and hand the Canadiens a defeat in Montreal. Read More

* Goalie Ben Bishop faced 28 shots Sunday night, and he stopped all of them, helping the Lightning overcome their recent road struggles with a shutout victory over the Red Wings. Read More

* With Maurice Jones-Drew ailing, Jaguars running back Jordan Todman received the start Sunday, and he made the most of his opportunity, rushing for 109 yards and perhaps offering up some evidence that he could have a shot at the starting job next season should MJD not return. Read More

* The Miami Dolphins continue to fight for the AFC's final playoff spot with two games remaining. But the scenario certainly looks promising for a team that has won three straight, four of five and will finish the season with games at last-place Buffalo and against the struggling New York Jets. Read More

* The Miami Dolphins not only snapped a seven-game losing streak in the series against New England on Sunday, they did it in Patriots' fashion. By late Monday night, the Dolphins could be in control of their playoff hopes after winning a third straight game and fourth in five. Read More

* Desperate to stop Tom Brady's latest comeback bid, the Miami Dolphins sought help from a reserve safety making his NFL debut after being signed Tuesday off the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad. Michael Thomas came through, intercepting Brady's fourth-down pass in the end zone with 2 seconds left Sunday to seal a seesaw 24-20 victory over the New England Patriots. Read More

The questions about his progress are more consistent now, and they were present again after another hot-and-cold Sunday for him. Read More

* The Tampa Bay Buccaneers rushed and rallied. But in the end, their late surge fell short. Most of the afternoon, the Bucs were limited on offense, and Tampa Bay struggled to scrape together consistent scoring drives. Read More

* The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' game plan was to be in position to win it in the fourth quarter. After giving themselves a chance, the Bucs saw the opportunity disappear when Colin Kaepernick put together a lengthy drive that helped the San Francisco 49ers win 33-14 Sunday. Read More

* Through a little over one quarter Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars appeared perfectly capable of winning their fourth game in a row for the first time since early in the 2007 season. But a roster depleted on both sides of the ball by injuries wound up making the Buffalo Bills look like anything but a team that had dropped five of its previous six contests. Read More

* EJ Manuel's latest trip to the Sunshine State was considerably better than his last. Manuel threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading the Buffalo Bills to a 27-20 victory against the banged-up Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Read More

* Another quarterback is leaving Florida after the program's first losing season since 1979. Tyler Murphy, who started six games and may have gotten a shot at the job in 2014, announced Sunday he's leaving to play his senior year elsewhere. Read More
