Goals from Mike Zonneveld and Rob Wielaert were enough to seal the points for the visitors at De Luiten, as NEC moved up one place to fifth and level on points with Roda, who have a better goal difference.
Heerenveen moved up two places themselves following a 1-0 away victory at struggling Zwolle, who remain in the bottom three of De Eredivisie table.
Stefan Selakovic's first half goal was enough to give the visitors all three points at the Oosterenk Stadion.
Willem II also proved too much for another of De Eredivisie's strugglers, as they disposed of Excelsior 2-1.
Said Boutahar gave visiting Excelsior a 1-0 lead at the break but second half goals by Tarik Sektioui and James Quinn with a minute left handed the Tilburg club victory over their Rotterdam-based opponents.
In Saturday's late kick-off, Twente Enschede got a late winner from Thijs Houwing to defeat hosts Vitesse Arnhem 1-0 at the Gelredome.
