Jalen Hurts threw three touchdown passes to AJ Brown in the first half and finished with 285 total yards and four TDs as the unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles cruised past the Pittsburgh Steelers 35-13 on Sunday.
Brown had six receptions for 156 yards. The Eagles are 7-0 for the first time since 2004, when Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens led them to the Super Bowl. In that season, the Eagles were denied an 8-0 start with a loss to the Steelers Pittsburgh (2-6) offered no resistance this time as Hurts and Brown turned the Linc into their own pitch-and-catch playground. Rookie Kenny Pickett showed more short-term growing pains for the Steelers, going 25 of 38 for 191 yards and an interception.
Miami Dolphins 31–27 Detroit Lions
Tua Tagovailoa threw a go-ahead, 11-yard touchdown pass to Mike Gesicki late in the third quarter that capped the Miami Dolphins’ rally from a double-digit second-half deficit.

Chicago Bears 29–49 Dallas Cowboys
Dak Prescott threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Micah Parsons returned a fumble for his first NFL score and the Dallas Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears.

Justin Fields rallied the Bears (3-5) within five trailing 28-7, but they had already given the momentum back when the young quarterback jumped into the wrong kind of Chicago lore.
David Montgomery fumbled in the open field after a catch in the third quarter, and Parsons fell on the loose ball. Instead of touching Parsons down, Fields jumped him. The star running back got up, took off at the urging of teammates, stumbled toward the goal line and rolled into the end zone on the 36-yard return.
New York Giants 13–27 Seattle Seahawks
Tyler Lockett caught a 33-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith with 9:18 left, and the Seattle Seahawks won their third straight.
The only matchup of teams with winning records in the NFL this week was a slugfest until the fourth quarter, when Lockett made up for two big mistakes earlier in the game and Seattle rookie quarterback Kenneth Walker III finally broke free and helped the surprising Seahawks ( 5 -3) stay on top of the NFC West. New York (6-2) saw its four-game winning streak snapped in its bye week and lost ground to undefeated Philadelphia in the NFC East — in large part because of Seahawks tight end Saquon Barkley, who was held to a season-low 53 yards on 20 carries. carries and had three catches for nine yards.
New England Patriots 22–17 New York Jets
Bill Belichick passed George Halas for second place on the NFL’s career coaching wins list and the New England Patriots continued their dominance of the New York Jets by beating them for the 13th straight time.
Devin McCourty had two of the Patriots’ three interceptions by Zach Wilson, Nick Folk kicked five field goals against his former team and Belichick’s side slowed the surprising Jets, who had won four in a row. Belichick missed a chance to break a tie with Halas on Monday night, when New England (4-4) lost to Chicago 33-14. But he got No. 325, including playoffs, against the Jets and now trails only Don Shula (347).
San Francisco 49ers 31–14 Los Angeles Rams

McCaffrey threw a 34-yard TD pass to Brandon Aiyuk in the first half, caught a TD pass from Jimmy Garoppolo in the third quarter and then put the Niners (4-4) in control with a TD run early in the fourth. Garoppolo passed for 235 yards and two touchdowns as San Francisco scored 24 unanswered points to cap its eighth straight regular-season victory over its NFC West rivals.
Las Vegas Raiders 0–24 New Orleans Saints
Alvin Kamara scored his first three touchdowns of the season, and the New Orleans Saints shut out the Las Vegas Raiders. Kamara converted short receptions into touchdowns of 36 and 16 yards. He also rushed for a three-yard score.
Andy Dalton justified the Saints’ decision to start him for a fifth straight game despite season starter Jameis Winston having recovered enough from back and ankle injuries to be a full participant in practice this week. Dalton was 22 of 30 for 229 yards and two TDs.
Denver Broncos 21–17 Jacksonville Jaguars
Latavius Murray scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to help the Denver Broncos snap a four-game losing streak by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Carolina Panthers 34–37 Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta’s Younghoe Koo booted a 41-yard field goal in overtime after the Carolina Panthers missed a pair of punts that could have won it, giving the Falcons an improbable victory that kept their grip on first place in the NFC South.
The teams combined for three touchdowns in the final 3:06 of regulation before a silly penalty by the Panthers’ DJ Moore opened the door for the Falcons (4-4) to pull it out.
With the Falcons up 34-28, Carolina (2-6) appeared to have won the game in spectacular fashion when Moore hauled in a 62-yard touchdown heave from PJ Walker with 12 seconds left. But Moore tore off his helmet during a wild celebration in the end zone, resulting in a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. That pushed the extra point back to a 48-yard attempt, and Eddy Pineiro hauled it left of the upright.
Carolina (2-6) had another chance to win in OT after CJ Henderson returned an interception 54 yards to the Falcons’ 20. But Pineiro failed another kick and ripped a wobbler to the left of the uprights again from 32 yards — shorter than a regular extra. point.
The panther would not get another shot. Marcus Mariota, who threw three touchdown passes, ripped off a 30-yard run for the Falcons that set up Koo’s game-winner with 1:55 left in overtime.
Arizona Cardinals 26–34 Minnesota Vikings
Za’Darius Smith had three sacks to help Minnesota’s defense hang on against Kyler Murray. Dalvin Cook rushed for a season-high 111 yards and a touchdown and Kirk Cousins passed for two scores and ran for another for the Vikings (6-1), who remained undefeated at home in coach Kevin O’Connell’s rookie year.
Murray passed for 326 yards and a season-high three touchdowns, including a one-handed grab for a score by DeAndre Hopkins with 47 seconds left in the second quarter, but he threw two second-half interceptions that proved costly for the Cardinals (3-5).
Washington Commanders 17-16 Indianapolis Colts
Taylor Heinicke scored on a one-yard plunge with 22 seconds left, capping an 89-yard drive in the final three minutes.
Indy native Terry McLaurin set up the clinching score by wrestling the ball from cornerback Stephon Gilmore, the 2019 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, for a 33-yard catch one play before Heinicke scored. Washington (4-4) has won three straight. Indy (3-4-1) managed just one TD in Sam Ehlinger’s first career start. He took over at quarterback this week when coach Frank Reich announced that longtime veteran Matt Ryan had been benched.
Tennessee Titans 17–10 Houston Texans
Derrick Henry dominated the Houston Texans again, running for 219 yards and two touchdowns. It was Henry’s fourth straight 200-yard game against the Texans, making him the first player in NFL history to have at least 150 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in four consecutive games against the same opponent. The 28-year-old has six 200-yard games in his career, tying OJ Simpson and Adrian Peterson for the most in NFL history.
