Eagles 49, Raiders 20
Nick Foles tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes and threw for 406 yards to revitalize a struggling offense for the visiting Philadelphia Eagles.
Foles connected three times with Riley Cooper to become the seventh quarterback in NFL history with seven TD tosses in a game. Peyton Manning did it for Denver on opening night this season against Baltimore.
Foles also threw scoring passes to Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson as the Eagles (4-5) looked nothing like the offense that failed to score a touchdown in each of the past two weeks.
The Raiders (3-5) had looked much improved on defense in recent weeks but were completely flummoxed by coach Chip Kelly’s spread offense that stalled in recent weeks after a fast debut in the NFL.
Chiefs 23, Bills 13
Sean Smith returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Tamba Hali scored on an 11-yard fumble return in the visiting Kansas City Chiefs’ comeback win over the Buffalo Bills.
The defense made up for a sputtering offense that managed just 210 yards, and for its own deficiencies.
The Chiefs gave up a season-worst 470 yards to a Bills (3-6) offense that was led by undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, making his first career start. Tuel finished 18-of-39 for 229 yards passing, including a 59-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. Tuel, however, threw two interceptions that led to 10 points for the Chiefs.
Kansas City (9-0) remained the NFL’s only undefeated team and matched the best start in franchise history set in 2003.
The Chiefs held an opponent to 17 points or fewer for the ninth consecutive time — matching the NFL record set by the Atlanta Falcons in 1977.
Jets 26, Saints 20
Nick Folk remained perfect this season by kicking four field goals, Rex Ryan’s defense held Drew Brees and the high-scoring New Orleans Saints to six points in the second half, and the host New York Jets had seven plays of at least 19 yards in an upset of New Orleans.
Ryan is now 7-3 against his brother, Rob, and the Jets (5-4) maintained their string of alternating wins and losses.
Folk is 23-for-23 on field goals and 14-of-14 on extra points.
Interceptions by Demario Davis and Antonio Cromartie highlighted New York’s solid defensive performance, and former Saints running back Chris Ivory rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown.
New Orleans (6-2) got two touchdown catches from Jimmy Graham, giving him 10 this season.
Cowboys 27, Vikings 23
Tony Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left, and the host Dallas Cowboys beat the Minnesota Vikings.
Romo’s 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard touchdown by Adrian Peterson that had given Minnesota a 23-20 lead. The East Texas kid raised on the Cowboys (5-4) had 140 yards rushing in his first game at their $1.2 billion stadium.
Christian Ponder threw for a touchdown and ran for another score, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a fourth consecutive loss for the Vikings (1-7).
Panthers 34, Falcons 10
Cam Newton threw for one touchdown and ran for another to overcome a shaky start, the defense intercepted Matt Ryan three times and host Carolina Panthers (5-3) beat the Atlanta Falcons (2-6) for their fourth win in a row.
Newton had two first-half interceptions, but bounced back to throw for 249 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown pass to tight end Greg Olsen.
Redskins 30, Chargers 24
Darrel Young scored three times, including a 4-yard run in overtime that gave the host Washington Redskins a win over the San Diego Chargers (4-4). Young stormed his way into the end zone 6:01 into the extra period, with the Redskins scoring on their first drive after winning the coin toss.
Washington (3-5) blew a 10-point lead in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, but a goal-line stand at the 1-yard line helped send the game to overtime.
Robert Griffin III completed 23-of-32 passes for 291 yards with one interception and ran six times for 17 yards. Former Mount Union star Pierre Garcon had seven receptions for 172 yards.
Titans 28, Rams 21
Chris Johnson ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns to lead the visiting Tennessee Titans (4-4) over the St. Louis Rams (3-6). Johnson’s 19-yard scoring run snapped a tie with 2:54 to go and came a snap after Jurrell Casey sacked and stripped quarterback Kellen Clemens, and Derrick Morgan recovered.
Seahawks 27, Buccaneers 24
Steven Hauschka kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:11 left in overtime, and the host Seattle Seahawks staged the biggest rally in franchise history, overcoming a 21-point deficit to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Trailing 21-0, Seattle improved to 8-1 and continued the best start in franchise history, but it was far from easy.
Russell Wilson threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin with 1:51 left in regulation to pull the Seahawks even. Wilson then led Seattle on a nine-play, 51-yard drive in overtime capped by Hauschka’s game-winner.
Mike James ran for a career-best 158 yards for Tampa Bay, but the Bucs (0-8) failed to score after the opening drive of the second half.
Patriots 55, Steelers 31
Tom Brady threw for season highs of 432 yards and four touchdowns and Rob Gronkowski had a career-high nine receptions to lead the host New England Patriots. The 55 points were the most scored in an NFL game this season and the most ever scored against the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-6).
Brady had 252 yards passing in the first half, more than he had in five of his other eight games for New England (7-2).
Colts 27, Texans 24
Andrew Luck got off to a slow start before throwing three second-half touchdowns to T.Y. Hilton to overcome an 18-point halftime deficit and give the AFC-South-leading Colts (6-2) the victory.
Case Keenum threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start, but had trouble moving the offense after halftime as the Texans, up 21-3 when coach Gary Kubiak collapsed, lost their sixth consecutive game after opening the season 2-0 with Super Bowl hopes.
Houston had a chance to tie it, but Randy Bullock’s 55-yard field-goal attempt as time expired sailed wide left.
