Jets’ Sam Darnold throws pick-6 on first career play

DETROIT (AP) — Sam Darnold’s career can only improve from here, right?

The New York rookie threw an interception on his very first NFL play, and Detroit’s Quandre Diggs returned it 37 yards for a touchdown to give the Lions a 7-0 lead over the Jets on Monday night.

Darnold was drafted with the third-overall pick this year, and he earned the start in the season opener. But his first throw looked ill-advised from the moment it left his hand, floating toward the left sideline, where Diggs picked it off.

Darnold does have some company, at least. Jameis Winston had his first pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown in 2015. That was the first time a rookie’s first throw was returned for a TD since Brett Favre — then with Atlanta — in 1991.

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore has topped 500 yards rushing for a 14th consecutive season to set an NFL record.

Gore entered the game against Green Bay tied with Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton, who had topped 500 yards in 13 straight seasons. Gore topped the milestone with a 9-yard run with about 3 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter.

The 14-year veteran ranks fourth and leads active players with 14,464 yards rushing.

Green Bay leads Miami 14-6 early in the second quarter. For the Packers, running back Aaron Jones has 96 yards on four carries, including a career-long 67-yarder.

Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has passed Hall of Famer Terrell Owens to move into second place on the career yards-receiving list.

The 15th-year player had six catches for 50 yards to up his total to 15,952 — moving 18 ahead of Owens — in a 26-14 loss at Kansas City.

Jerry Rice holds the record with 22,895 yards.

Aaron Rodgers hit Davante Adams for a 7-yard touchdown pass with 6:07 left in the first quarter to give Green Bay a 7-0 lead. Running back Aaron Jones accounted for 54 total yards on the drive.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had very little to show for gaining 501 yards offense in a 16-3 loss to Washington.

The Buccaneers became just the second team since 1940 to top 400 yards and score 3 or fewer points, according to Pro Football Reference. They join the then-St. Louis Rams, who had 424 yards offense in a 24-3 loss to Green Bay in 2011.

Four turnovers, including two interceptions thrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick, didn’t help. Neither did kicker Chandler Catanzaro missing field-goal attempts from 30 and 48 yards, both wide right.

The New England Patriots have pulled quarterback Tom Brady while trailing the Titans 34-10 in the fourth quarter.

The Titans sacked Brady a season-high three times, and former New England cornerback Logan Ryan broke up a Brady pass to Julian Edelman on fourth down with 10:48 left to end a Patriots’ scoring threat.

Edelman went to the locker room after that pass was broken up. He is questionable to return with an injured ankle.

Brian Hoyer replaced Brady after Derrick Henry’s 10-yard run out of the wildcat put the Titans up 34-10 with 7:13 left.

The Patriots also were playing without left tackle Trent Brown, who left in the third quarter with an injured back. Tight end Dwayne Allen is questionable to return with an injured knee.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has plenty to talk about now while enjoying his best game of the season.

Three quarters into Buffalo’s game at the New York Jets, McCoy has already topped 100 yards rushing for the first time since gaining 156 on a snow-covered field in a 13-7 overtime win over Indianapolis on Dec. 10.

He has also scored two touchdowns rushing for the first time since scoring twice in a 30-27 win over Tampa Bay on Oct. 22, 2017.

The touchdowns were the first of the season for McCoy. And the come two days after the 10th-year player broke nearly two weeks of silence by telling reporters he was frustrated with his lack of production.

McCoy entered the game with 267 yards rushing this season, and had 103 midway through the third quarter.

McCoy also surpassed 500 career points, and vaulted into 26th place on the career yards rushing list by moving ahead of Marshawn Lynch (10,379), Eddie George (10,441) and Tiki Barber (10,449).

Cleveland Browns rookie Nick Chubb broke a club record and maybe Atlanta’s back with a 92-yard TD run.

The running back took a handoff at Cleveland’s 8, cut right and avoided a few tacklers before streaking to the end zone to give Cleveland a 28-10 lead midway through the third quarter.

Chubb’s 92-yard run is the longest in team history, topping the 90-yard run by Bobby Mitchell in 1959 against Washington.

It was Chubb’s second touchdown of the game. He also caught a 13-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the second quarter.

The Titans scored a season-high 17 points in the first quarter with touchdown passes by Marcus Mariota on each of their first two possessions. Mariota is 11 of 16 for 152 yards.

The Titans have been getting plenty of pressure on Tom Brady. Former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan sacked Brady on the final play of the first half, the Titans’ second sack of the first half.

James Develin has run for a TD, and Stephen Gostkowski connected on one of his two 52-yard field goal attempt for New England.

Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth is donating a game check to the families of the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks.

Whitworth will give his check from Los Angeles’ game against Seattle to the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victims Fund. The fund was set up to help the families of the 12 people killed by a gunman in Thousand Oaks, the home of the Rams’ training complex.

Whitworth is in the second season of a three-year, $36 million deal with the Rams. He has played a major role in the Rams’ transformation into an elite NFC team under Sean McVay.

Whitworth, Todd Gurley, Jared Goff, Michael Brockers and other players are also auctioning off their game jerseys to benefit the victims’ fund and American Red Cross Southern California Wildfire Relief.

Two wildfires are also burning in the same general area of the western Los Angeles suburbs.

2:30 p.m.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has moved ahead of Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season touchdown list with a sensational first half at Cincinnati.

He’s thrown three TD passes as the Saints have raced ahead 35-7, reaching the end zone on all five possessions. Brees has 509 career TD passes, one more than Favre.

Cleveland’s rookie quarterback completed 12 of 12 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in the first half against Atlanta. Mayfield connected on a 28-yard TD with Rashard Higgins and threw a 13-yard scoring pass to Nick Chubb.

Mayfield finished the half with a 158.3 quarterback rating, the highest possible score. The Browns did have one interception in the half, but it was thrown by running back Dontrell Hilliard, who attempted to hit a well-covered Mayfield on a trick play.

___

2:10 p.m.

Patrick Mahomes has broken the Kansas City Chiefs record for touchdown passes in a season.

The first-year starter threw his 31st of the season — and second of the game to Tyreek Hill — to pass Len Dawson. The Hall of Famer threw 30 in 1964.

The record-setter came on third-and-goal from the Arizona 14. Hill celebrated by leaping into the stands, just as he did on his first TD catch, then playing with the TV cameras.

That last bit earned Hill an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Atlanta receiver Julio Jones has reached 10,000 yards receiving faster than any player in NFL history.

Six teams reached the end zone on the opening possession of their games Sunday to get Week 10 off to a high-scoring start.

Tennessee’s Darius Jennings returned the opening kickoff 58 yards, then the Titans needed seven plays to go 40 yards, capped by Marcus Mariota 4-yard TD pass to Jonnu Smith against New England.

Chicago’s Tarik Cohen had a 3-yard TD run to cap an eight-play, 75-yard drive vs. Detroit. But Cody Parkey missed the extra point.

Indianapolis covered 75 yards in seven plays and Andrew Luck found Eric Ebron for a 53-yard scoring pass against Jacksonville.

Buffalo used a mere two plays against the Jets, with newcomer Matt Barkley throwing 47 yards to Robert Foster before LeSean McCoy broke from a lengthy slump for his first touchdown this season, on a 28-yard run.

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey was the last of the Titans defense introduced before kickoff for Tennessee’s game against New England.

Casey took the field carrying an American flag, and first shaking hands with a soldier as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service being held on Veteran’s Day. A soldier accompanied each Titans starter onto the field for a few steps.

Drew Brees and Tom Brady enter Week 10 of the NFL’s schedule neck and neck in closing in on matching Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season list.

Brees has 506 touchdowns passing, two behind Favre, as the New Orleans Saints play at Cincinnati. And Brady has 505 with his New England Patriots playing at Tennessee. Both are a little more than 30 behind Peyton Manning’s record of 539.

Brady does have chance to pass Manning on the career touchdowns passing list, including playoffs. Manning has 579, only three more than Brady.

On the other end of the quarterback matchup spectrum Sunday, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will feature a battle of the backups rather than far more intriguing AFC East showdown of two rookie first-round picks.

Matt Barkley is starting in place of Buffalo’s Josh Allen, who will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained throwing elbow. For New York, Josh McCown is starting in place Sam Darnold, who is sidelined by a strained right foot. Darnold was drafted third overall, four spots ahead of Allen.

Aaron Rodgers hit Davante Adams for a 7-yard touchdown pass with 6:07 left in the first quarter to give Green Bay a 7-0 lead. Running back Aaron Jones accounted for 54 total yards on the drive. The Packers capitalized after Dolphins’ quarterback Brock Osweiler mishandled a shotgun snap that was recovered by Reggie Gilbert at the Green Bay 30.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had very little to show for gaining 501 yards offense in a 16-3 loss to Washington.

The Buccaneers became just the second team since 1940 to top 400 yards and score 3 or fewer points, according to Pro Football Reference. They join the then-St. Louis Rams, who had 424 yards offense in a 24-3 loss to Green Bay in 2011.

Four turnovers, including two interceptions thrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick, didn’t help. Neither did kicker Chandler Catanzaro missing field-goal attempts from 30 and 48 yards, both wide right.

3:50 p.m.

The New England Patriots have pulled quarterback Tom Brady while trailing the Titans 34-10 in the fourth quarter.

The Titans sacked Brady a season-high three times, and former New England cornerback Logan Ryan broke up a Brady pass to Julian Edelman on fourth down with 10:48 left to end a Patriots’ scoring threat.

Edelman went to the locker room after that pass was broken up. He is questionable to return with an injured ankle.

Brian Hoyer replaced Brady after Derrick Henry’s 10-yard run out of the wildcat put the Titans up 34-10 with 7:13 left.

The Patriots also were playing without left tackle Trent Brown, who left in the third quarter with an injured back. Tight end Dwayne Allen is questionable to return with an injured knee.

3:10 p.m.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has plenty to talk about now while enjoying his best game of the season.

Three quarters into Buffalo’s game at the New York Jets, McCoy has already topped 100 yards rushing for the first time since gaining 156 on a snow-covered field in a 13-7 overtime win over Indianapolis on Dec. 10.

He has also scored two touchdowns rushing for the first time since scoring twice in a 30-27 win over Tampa Bay on Oct. 22, 2017.

The touchdowns were the first of the season for McCoy. And the come two days after the 10th-year player broke nearly two weeks of silence by telling reporters he was frustrated with his lack of production.

McCoy entered the game with 267 yards rushing this season, and had 103 midway through the third quarter.

McCoy also surpassed 500 career points, and vaulted into 26th place on the career yards rushing list by moving ahead of Marshawn Lynch (10,379), Eddie George (10,441) and Tiki Barber (10,449).

2:50 p.m.

Cleveland Browns rookie Nick Chubb broke a club record and maybe Atlanta’s back with a 92-yard TD run.

The running back took a handoff at Cleveland’s 8, cut right and avoided a few tacklers before streaking to the end zone to give Cleveland a 28-10 lead midway through the third quarter.

Chubb’s 92-yard run is the longest in team history, topping the 90-yard run by Bobby Mitchell in 1959 against Washington.

It was Chubb’s second touchdown of the game. He also caught a 13-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the second quarter.

2:45 p.m.

The Tennessee Titans are following up their big win in Dallas with a strong first half against the Patriots.

Tennessee scored a season-high 28 points to beat the Cowboys on Monday night, and they now lead New England 24-10 at halftime.

The Titans scored a season-high 17 points in the first quarter with touchdown passes by Marcus Mariota on each of their first two possessions. Mariota is 11 of 16 for 152 yards.

The Titans have been getting plenty of pressure on Tom Brady. Former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan sacked Brady on the final play of the first half, the Titans’ second sack of the first half.

James Develin has run for a TD, and Stephen Gostkowski connected on one of his two 52-yard field goal attempt for New England.

Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth is donating a game check to the families of the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks.

Whitworth will give his check from Los Angeles’ game against Seattle to the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victims Fund. The fund was set up to help the families of the 12 people killed by a gunman in Thousand Oaks, the home of the Rams’ training complex.

Whitworth is in the second season of a three-year, $36 million deal with the Rams. He has played a major role in the Rams’ transformation into an elite NFC team under Sean McVay.

Whitworth, Todd Gurley, Jared Goff, Michael Brockers and other players are also auctioning off their game jerseys to benefit the victims’ fund and American Red Cross Southern California Wildfire Relief.

Two wildfires are also burning in the same general area of the western Los Angeles suburbs.

2:30 p.m.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has moved ahead of Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season touchdown list with a sensational first half at Cincinnati.

He’s thrown three TD passes as the Saints have raced ahead 35-7, reaching the end zone on all five possessions. Brees has 509 career TD passes, one more than Favre.

Peyton Manning holds the record with 539.

The Saints have piled up 311 yards, and they have 21 first downs on 40 plays. Brees is 18 of 20 for 214 yards.

___

2:15 p.m.

Baker Mayfield enjoyed a perfect half.

Cleveland’s rookie quarterback completed 12 of 12 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in the first half against Atlanta. Mayfield connected on a 28-yard TD with Rashard Higgins and threw a 13-yard scoring pass to Nick Chubb.

Mayfield finished the half with a 158.3 quarterback rating, the highest possible score. The Browns did have one interception in the half, but it was thrown by running back Dontrell Hilliard, who attempted to hit a well-covered Mayfield on a trick play.

___

2:10 p.m.

Patrick Mahomes has broken the Kansas City Chiefs record for touchdown passes in a season.

The first-year starter threw his 31st of the season — and second of the game to Tyreek Hill — to pass Len Dawson. The Hall of Famer threw 30 in 1964.

The record-setter came on third-and-goal from the Arizona 14. Hill celebrated by leaping into the stands, just as he did on his first TD catch, then playing with the TV cameras.

That last bit earned Hill an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

2 p.m.

Atlanta receiver Julio Jones has reached 10,000 yards receiving faster than any player in NFL history.

Jones reached the plateau in his 104th career game, catching a 30-yard pass in the second quarter from Matt Ryan. Calvin Johnson held the previous mark, getting to 10,000 yards in his 115th game. Torry Holt and Antonio Brown got there in 116 games.

Jones caught a short pass over the middle and broke a couple tackles on his first reception of the game. He came in with 933 yards receiving this season.

Moments later, Jones caught a 1-yard TD pass from Ryan to give the Falcons a 10-7 lead.

___

1:50 p.m.

The Buffalo Bills have scored twice in the first quarter against the New York Jets to match their combined total from their previous four games.

LeSean McCoy opened the scoring with a 28-yard run, 5 more than he totaled in his previous two games. And then tight end Jason Croom recovered teammate Zay Jones’ fumble in the end zone to put the Bills ahead 14-0.

Buffalo’s 14 points are the most they’ve scored in seven games, since a 27-6 victory at Minnesota on Sept. 23. And the Bills are doing this with Matt Barkley making his debut at quarterback less than two weeks after signing with Buffalo.

___

1:40 p.m.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees has thrown two touchdown passes against Cincinnati to up his regular-season total to 508 and match Brett Favre for second on the NFL career list.

Brees first TD was a 7-yarder to Michael Thomas midway through the first quarter. Mark Ingram II then turned a screen pass into a 28-yard touchdown

Peyton Manning holds the record with 539.

Six teams reached the end zone on the opening possession of their games Sunday to get Week 10 off to a high-scoring start.

Kansas City, which lost the coin toss for the first time all season, went 75 yards in 56 seconds. Three plays were needed, with Patrick Mahomes connecting with Tyreek Hill for 38 yards, then for a 37-yard touchdown.

Tennessee’s Darius Jennings returned the opening kickoff 58 yards, then the Titans needed seven plays to go 40 yards, capped by Marcus Mariota 4-yard TD pass to Jonnu Smith against New England.

Chicago’s Tarik Cohen had a 3-yard TD run to cap an eight-play, 75-yard drive vs. Detroit. But Cody Parkey missed the extra point.

Indianapolis covered 75 yards in seven plays and Andrew Luck found Eric Ebron for a 53-yard scoring pass against Jacksonville.

Buffalo used a mere two plays against the Jets, with newcomer Matt Barkley throwing 47 yards to Robert Foster before LeSean McCoy broke from a lengthy slump for his first touchdown this season, on a 28-yard run.

And Drew Brees threw his 507th career touchdown pass, leaving him one behind Brett Favre for second place on the career list, capping a 15-play, 75-yard drive that consumed 8 minutes, 30 seconds. It ended with Michael Thomas’ diving 7-yard catch.

___

1:15 p.m.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes needed only 56 seconds to throw his first touchdown pass against Arizona, moving him into a tie with Hall of Famer Len Dawson for the single-season franchise record.

Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill down the sideline for 38 yards on the game’s first play. Then, after an incompletion, Mahomes found Hill again for a 37-yard touchdown reception.

It was the 30th thrown by Mahomes this season. Dawson threw 30 during the 1964 season.

The Indianapolis Colts honored kicker Adam Vinatieri, the NFL’s new career scoring leader, with a brief highlight show during pregame introduction before their game against Jacksonville.

Vinatieri received a roaring ovation from the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd when he was announced as the final starter. The 45-year-old waved to the crowd and slapped hands with a group of fans gathered around the American flag on the field.

Vinatieri broke Morten Andersen’s record two weeks ago at Oakland, but the Colts had a bye last week and Sunday marked the first time Indy could celebrate the record-breaking moment on its home turf.

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey was the last of the Titans defense introduced before kickoff for Tennessee’s game against New England.

Casey took the field carrying an American flag, and first shaking hands with a soldier as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service being held on Veteran’s Day. A soldier accompanied each Titans starter onto the field for a few steps.

Country artist Little Big Town performed the national anthem, which featured a flyover by military helicopters.

11:30 a.m.

Drew Brees and Tom Brady enter Week 10 of the NFL’s schedule neck and neck in closing in on matching Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season list.

Brees has 506 touchdowns passing, two behind Favre, as the New Orleans Saints play at Cincinnati. And Brady has 505 with his New England Patriots playing at Tennessee. Both are a little more than 30 behind Peyton Manning’s record of 539.

Brady does have chance to pass Manning on the career touchdowns passing list, including playoffs. Manning has 579, only three more than Brady.

On the other end of the quarterback matchup spectrum Sunday, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will feature a battle of the backups rather than far more intriguing AFC East showdown of two rookie first-round picks.

Matt Barkley is starting in place of Buffalo’s Josh Allen, who will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained throwing elbow. For New York, Josh McCown is starting in place Sam Darnold, who is sidelined by a strained right foot. Darnold was drafted third overall, four spots ahead of Allen.

Titans sack Brady, upset Patriots 34-10

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tom Brady added another big chunk of NFL history to his resume. The Tennessee Titans made sure the Patriots quarterback didn't finish his 300th game.

The Titans sacked Brady three times and hit him repeatedly as they beat New England 34-10 Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tom Brady added another big chunk of NFL history to his resume. The Tennessee Titans made sure the Patriots quarterback didn’t finish his 300th game.

The Titans sacked Brady three times and hit him repeatedly as they beat New England 34-10 Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots in Mike Vrabel’s first game as head coach against the team he helped win three Super Bowls.

It was the most sacks allowed in a game this season by the Patriots (7-3), and coach Bill Belichick pulled Brady for Brian Hoyer midway through the fourth quarter.

Only Brett Favre (326) has played in more games, both regular season and postseason, as a quarterback than Brady. The three-time NFL MVP also needed only three touchdown passes to tie Peyton Manning (579) for the NFL record for most TD passes all time for both the regular season and postseason. He left having thrown for 254 yards and no TD passes.

Marcus Mariota capped each of the first two drives with TD passes, and Derrick Henry ran for a pair of TDs. Ryan Succop also added two field goals as the Titans (5-4) scored a season high in points after jumping to a 17-3 lead in the first quarter. They now have beaten both of last season’s Super Bowl teams in Nashville.

The loss snaps a six-game winning streak going into New England’s bye. The Patriots, who routed the Titans 35-14 in January, also lost to Tennessee for the first time since Dec. 16, 2002.

SAINTS 51, BENGALS 14

CINCINNATI (AP) — Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes in the first half, moving ahead of Brett Favre for second place on the career list, and the Saints rolled to their eighth straight victory.

Brees led the Saints to touchdowns on all five first-half possessions with a nearly perfect performance — only two incompletions. His 17-yard TD to Michael Thomas with 2 seconds left in the half gave him 509 career touchdown passes, one more than Favre.

Up next: Peyton Manning’s record 539.

Brees had his way with the Bengals’ historically bad defense , even diving over the pile to score a 1-yard touchdown. Cincinnati (5-4) became the first team in the Super Bowl era to give up 500 yards in three consecutive games; New Orleans finished with 509.

The Bengals matched the most lopsided defeat in franchise history and gave up the second-most points in club history. In the first half alone, the Saints piled up 311 yards and had 21 first downs on 40 plays. Brees was 18 of 20 for 214 yards with three touchdowns.

Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara recognized Dez Bryant by crossing their arms after scoring touchdowns. The former Cowboys receiver signed with the Saints on Wednesday but tore an Achilles tendon in his second practice.

CHIEFS 26, CARDINALS 14

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes threw for 249 yards and two touchdowns, outplaying Arizona counterpart Josh Rosen in a matchup of two of the NFL’s bright young quarterbacks.

Mahomes threw both TD passes to Tyreek Hill, the second giving the Chiefs’ first-year starter 31 for the season. That broke the franchise record set by Len Dawson in 1964 — with plenty of games to go.

Not to mention the playoffs, with the Chiefs (9-1) barreling toward the No. 1 seed.

Rosen had 195 yards passing with a touchdown and two picks, taking several brutal hits in the fourth quarter. David Johnson ran for 98 yards, with TDs on the ground and through the air, while Larry Fitzgerald passed Terrell Owens for No. 2 on the NFL’s career receiving yardage list late in the game.

Fitzgerald finished with six catches for 50 yards to give him 15,952 for his brilliant career.

Hill had seven catches for 117 yards, and Kareem Hunt pounded his way for 71 yards rushing, as the Chiefs kept the Cardinals (2-7) winless in six meetings at Arrowhead Stadium.

BROWNS 28, FALCONS 16

CLEVELAND (AP) — Rookie Baker Mayfield threw a season-high three touchdown passes and rookie Nick Chubb streaked 92 yards for a TD as Cleveland ended a four-game losing streak.

The Browns (3-6-1) played their most complete game this season under interim coach Gregg Williams, their defensive coordinator who improved to 1-1 since replacing the fired Hue Jackson.

Mayfield outplayed Falcons star quarterback Matt Ryan with a performance that further justifies Cleveland’s decision to take the QB with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft. Mayfield completed his first 13 passes and finished 17 of 20 for 216 yards. He threw a 28-yard scoring pass to Rashard Higgins, a 13-yarder to Chubb, and 11-yarder to Duke Johnson.

Ryan and the Falcons (4-5) had their three-game winning streak — and any playoff momentum — stopped cold.

And while Mayfield did damage, Chubb’s record run was the backbreaker.

With the Browns backed up at their 8, Chubb, who had 176 yards on 20 carries, took a handoff and headed right. He cut toward Atlanta’s sideline, picked up a block and then showed his surprising breakaway speed while finishing the longest run in team history. Chubb’s run broke the previous team mark held by Bobby Mitchell, who had a 90-yard TD run against Washington on Nov. 15, 1959.

BEARS 34, LIONS 22

CHICAGO (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns, and the NFC North-leading Bears snapped a 10-game losing streak against division opponents.

The Bears (6-3) had dropped nine of 10 against Detroit (3-6) and were seeking their first victory over a division opponent since Oct. 31, 2016, against Minnesota.

Chicago jumped to a 26-7 halftime lead with Trubisky and Allen Robinson leading the way. And the Bears surpassed their win total from last year with their third straight victory.

Trubisky completed 23 of 30 passes against a short-handed secondary, with standout cornerback Darius Slay sidelined by a knee injury.

Allen Robinson caught six passes for 133 yards and two TDs after missing two games with a groin injury.

Rookie Anthony Miller added a career-high 122 yards on five receptions, including a 45-yard TD and a 55-yard catch.

Khalil Mack had two of Chicago’s six sacks against Matthew Stafford — both in the second half after missing back-to-back games with an injured right ankle.

REDSKINS 16, BUCCANEERS 3

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and one touchdown, and Dustin Hopkins kicked three field goals for the Redskins (6-3), who forced four turnovers and rebounded from a lopsided loss to Atlanta despite playing with a makeshift offensive line because of mounting injuries.

Smith, who was 19 of 27 with no interceptions, threw 6 yards to Josh Doctson for the game’s only touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Hopkins kicked field goals of 43, 43 and 26 yards, the last set up by Greg Stroman’s fourth-quarter interception and 24-yard return to the Bucs 14.

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 403 yards for Tampa Bay (3-6), but was intercepted twice and lost a fumble on a sack inside the Washington 10.

The Bucs, who’ve lost three in a row and six of seven following a 2-0 start, failed to force a turnover on defense for the sixth straight game.

The Redskins were outgained 279 yards to 136 in the first two quarters, yet led 6-3 at halftime after getting two field goals from Hopkins.

COLTS 29, JAGUARS 26

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes in the first half and the Colts’ defense forced a late turnover. Indy (4-5) has won three straight.

Tight end Eric Ebron had a career-high three touchdowns, including one on a 2-yard run, all in the first half.

Blake Bortles threw for 319 yards and two TDs, but the Jaguars (3-6) came up short when Kenny Moore III stripped the ball from Rashad Greene Sr. and Malik Hooker recovered for the Colts with 1:24 to go. Initially, Greene was ruled down by contact, but it was overturned on a replay review from the booth.

Jacksonville, last year’s AFC runner-up, has lost five straight and six of seven since starting 2-0.

Luck took full advantage of mismatches in the first half as the Jaguars struggled to cover Indy’s tight ends.

Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox teamed up to catch eight passes for 133 yards and all three scores. Luck wound up 21 of 29 with 285 yards and one interception but avoided being sacked for the fourth consecutive game — the longest stretch of his pro career.

BILLS 41, JETS 10

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Matt Barkley stunningly sparked Buffalo’s bumbling offense with two touchdown passes, including one to offensive tackle Dion Dawkins. LeSean McCoy broke out of a season-long slump with 113 yards rushing and a pair of TD runs.

Barkley made his first start in nearly two years, and looked the best of any of the four quarterbacks the Bills (3-7) have trotted out this season. The 28-year-old journeyman was 15 of 25 for 232 yards while helping Buffalo snap a four-game losing streak as the Bills put up 451 yards of total offense.

Barkley got the nod from coach Sean McDermott ahead of the ineffective Nathan Peterman despite having just two weeks of practice with the Bills since signing on Oct. 30. Rookie Josh Allen has missed four straight games with a sprained right elbow, and Derek Anderson is sidelined with a concussion. Barkley’s last start came in the 2016 season finale for Chicago.

Meanwhile, the hot seat under coach Todd Bowles has reached a boiling point as the Jets (3-7) got completely manhandled by a team that entered with a league-low 96 points and had two touchdowns in its previous four games.

The Jets have a bye-week break and the future of Bowles, in his fourth season, is in serious doubt.

New York started 39-year-old Josh McCown in place of injured rookie Sam Darnold, but he couldn’t prevent the Jets from their fourth straight loss in front of a frustrated fan base that booed lustily throughout.

McCown was 17 of 34 for 135 yards with two interceptions.

Mayfield throws 3 TDs, Chubb has record run in Browns’ win

CLEVELAND (AP) — Before he rolled out of bed, Baker Mayfield knew he’d have a good game.

“When I woke up this morning, I was feeling pretty dangerous,” the Browns rookie quarterback said with a smile and a hint of arrogance. “Real dangerous.”

Someone should have warned the Atlanta Falcons.

Mayfield threw a season-high three touchdown passes and rookie Nick Chubb streaked 92 yards for a TD as the Cleveland Browns ended a four-game losing streak with their best game in years, a stunning 28-16 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

The Browns (3-6-1) played their most complete game this season under interim coach Gregg Williams, their defensive coordinator who improved to 1-1 since replacing the fired Hue Jackson.

Mayfield outplayed Falcons star quarterback Matt Ryan with a performance that further justifies Cleveland’s decision to take the QB with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft.

“The plan was to put the ball in Baker’s hands, so he could make quick decisions,” guard Joel Bitonio said. “He did a great job doing that and making plays for us. With Baker doing his thing and the way Chubb was running the ball, it was a great day for our entire offense.

“Sometimes, the ball bounces your way. Sometimes, it doesn’t. Today, it was definitely bouncing our way.”

Mayfield completed his first 13 passes and finished 17 of 20 for 216 yards. He threw a 28-yard scoring pass to Rashard Higgins, a 13-yarder to Chubb and 11-yarder to Duke Johnson.

Ryan and the Falcons (4-5) had their three-game winning streak — and any playoff momentum — stopped cold.

“It is disappointing because we had been playing better than this the last couple of weeks. We’re better than what we put out there today, but you’re only as good as your last performance. Today was not good enough.”

And while Mayfield did damage, Chubb’s record run was the backbreaker.

With the Browns backed up at their 8, Chubb, who had 176 yards on 20 carries, took a handoff and headed right. He cut toward Atlanta’s sideline, picked up a block and then showed his surprising breakaway speed while finishing the longest run in team history.

Chubb’s run broke the previous team mark held by Bobby Mitchell, who had a 90-yard TD run against Washington on Nov. 15, 1959.

The score put the Browns ahead 28-10, an unexpected and unescapable hole for the Falcons, who blew a chance to get closer in the fourth when they were stopped inches short of the goal line.

Ryan completed 38 of 52 passes for 330 yards and two TDs.

Atlanta receiver Julio Jones had 107 yards and became the fastest player to reach 10,000 yards receiving with a 30-yard catch in the second quarter. Jones reached the 10,000-yard plateau in his 104th game, 11 quicker than Calvin Johnson got to the milestone.

Moments later, Ryan completed a 1-yard TD pass to Jones to give the Falcons a 10-7 lead.

Mayfield, who lamented his accuracy issues in last week’s loss to Kansas City, went 12 of 12 for 165 yards and two TD passes in the first half, finishing with a 158.3 rating.

Mayfield didn’t throw his first incompletion until 11:14 remained in the third quarter, but two plays later, he connected with Johnson to put the Browns ahead 21-10.

The score came after cornerback T.J. Carrie jarred the ball away from Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu.

Plagued by slow starts, the Browns took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on Mayfield’s pass to Higgins, one of the QB’s favorite targets who was playing his second straight game after missing three weeks with a knee injury.

It was Cleveland’s first TD in the opening quarter this season.

WISHBONE WISH

New Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens joked earlier in the week he might bring back the “wishbone” — a three-back formation popular with college teams in the 1970s.

Cleveland used a variation of the wishbone on several plays.

STRANGE CALL

While Mayfield was sublime in the first half, the Browns did have one interception.

Running back Dontrell Hilliard took a pitch and threw an ill-advised pass back toward Mayfield, who was well covered and the ball was picked by Falcons safety Damonte Kazee.

NEW TACKLE

The Browns started Greg Robinson at left tackle for the second straight week in place of rookie Desmond Harrison.

The No. 2 overall pick in 2014, Robinson is getting a fresh start with the Browns, who signed him as a free agent before training camp. He previously played for the Los Angeles Rams and Lions.

Edelman went to the locker room after that pass was broken up. He is questionable to return with an injured ankle.

Brian Hoyer replaced Brady after Derrick Henry’s 10-yard run out of the wildcat put the Titans up 34-10 with 7:13 left.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has plenty to talk about now while enjoying his best game of the season.

Three quarters into Buffalo’s game at the New York Jets, McCoy has already topped 100 yards rushing for the first time since gaining 156 on a snow-covered field in a 13-7 overtime win over Indianapolis on Dec. 10.

He has also scored two touchdowns rushing for the first time since scoring twice in a 30-27 win over Tampa Bay on Oct. 22, 2017.

The touchdowns were the first of the season for McCoy. And the come two days after the 10th-year player broke nearly two weeks of silence by telling reporters he was frustrated with his lack of production.

McCoy entered the game with 267 yards rushing this season, and had 103 midway through the third quarter.

The running back took a handoff at Cleveland’s 8, cut right and avoided a few tacklers before streaking to the end zone to give Cleveland a 28-10 lead midway through the third quarter.

Chubb’s 92-yard run is the longest in team history, topping the 90-yard run by Bobby Mitchell in 1959 against Washington.

It was Chubb’s second touchdown of the game. He also caught a 13-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the second quarter.

The Tennessee Titans are following up their big win in Dallas with a strong first half against the Patriots.

The Titans scored a season-high 17 points in the first quarter with touchdown passes by Marcus Mariota on each of their first two possessions. Mariota is 11 of 16 for 152 yards.

The Titans have been getting plenty of pressure on Tom Brady. Former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan sacked Brady on the final play of the first half, the Titans’ second sack of the first half.

James Develin has run for a TD, and Stephen Gostkowski connected on one of his two 52-yard field goal attempt for New England.

Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth is donating a game check to the families of the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks.

Whitworth will give his check from Los Angeles’ game against Seattle to the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victims Fund. The fund was set up to help the families of the 12 people killed by a gunman in Thousand Oaks, the home of the Rams’ training complex.

Whitworth is in the second season of a three-year, $36 million deal with the Rams. He has played a major role in the Rams’ transformation into an elite NFC team under Sean McVay.

Whitworth, Todd Gurley, Jared Goff, Michael Brockers and other players are also auctioning off their game jerseys to benefit the victims’ fund and American Red Cross Southern California Wildfire Relief.

Patrick Mahomes has broken the Kansas City Chiefs record for touchdown passes in a season.

The first-year starter threw his 31st of the season — and second of the game to Tyreek Hill — to pass Len Dawson. The Hall of Famer threw 30 in 1964.

The record-setter came on third-and-goal from the Arizona 14. Hill celebrated by leaping into the stands, just as he did on his first TD catch, then playing with the TV cameras.

That last bit earned Hill an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Tennessee’s Darius Jennings returned the opening kickoff 58 yards, then the Titans needed seven plays to go 40 yards, capped by Marcus Mariota 4-yard TD pass to Jonnu Smith against New England.

Chicago’s Tarik Cohen had a 3-yard TD run to cap an eight-play, 75-yard drive vs. Detroit. But Cody Parkey missed the extra point.

Indianapolis covered 75 yards in seven plays and Andrew Luck found Eric Ebron for a 53-yard scoring pass against Jacksonville.

Buffalo used a mere two plays against the Jets, with newcomer Matt Barkley throwing 47 yards to Robert Foster before LeSean McCoy broke from a lengthy slump for his first touchdown this season, on a 28-yard run.

And Drew Brees threw his 507th career touchdown pass, leaving him one behind Brett Favre for second place on the career list, capping a 15-play, 75-yard drive that consumed 8 minutes, 30 seconds. It ended with Michael Thomas’ diving 7-yard catch.

Drew Brees and Tom Brady enter Week 10 of the NFL’s schedule neck and neck in closing in on matching Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season list.

Brees has 506 touchdowns passing, two behind Favre, as the New Orleans Saints play at Cincinnati. And Brady has 505 with his New England Patriots playing at Tennessee. Both are a little more than 30 behind Peyton Manning’s record of 539.

Brady does have chance to pass Manning on the career touchdowns passing list, including playoffs. Manning has 579, only three more than Brady.

On the other end of the quarterback matchup spectrum Sunday, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will feature a battle of the backups rather than far more intriguing AFC East showdown of two rookie first-round picks.

Matt Barkley is starting in place of Buffalo’s Josh Allen, who will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained throwing elbow. For New York, Josh McCown is starting in place Sam Darnold, who is sidelined by a strained right foot. Darnold was drafted third overall, four spots ahead of Allen.

The Green Bay Packers have cashed in on a turnover on the Miami Dolphins’ game-opening drive.

Aaron Rodgers hit Davante Adams for a 7-yard touchdown pass with 6:07 left in the first quarter to give Green Bay a 7-0 lead. Running back Aaron Jones accounted for 54 total yards on the drive. The Packers capitalized after Dolphins’ quarterback Brock Osweiler mishandled a shotgun snap that was recovered by Reggie Gilbert at the Green Bay 30.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had very little to show for gaining 501 yards offense in a 16-3 loss to Washington.

Edelman went to the locker room after that pass was broken up. He is questionable to return with an injured ankle.

Brian Hoyer replaced Brady after Derrick Henry’s 10-yard run out of the wildcat put the Titans up 34-10 with 7:13 left.

Smith throws for 178 yards, TD; Redskins beat Bucs 16-3

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and one touchdown to lead the Washington Redskins to a 16-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Dustin Hopkins kicked three field goals for the Redskins (6-3), who forced four turnovers and rebounded from a lopsided loss to Atlanta despite playing

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and one touchdown to lead the Washington Redskins to a 16-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Dustin Hopkins kicked three field goals for the Redskins (6-3), who forced four turnovers and rebounded from a lopsided loss to Atlanta despite playing with a makeshift offensive line because of mounting injuries.

Smith, who was 19 of 27 with no interceptions, threw 6 yards to Josh Doctson for the game’s only touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Hopkins kicked field goals of 43, 43 and 26 yards, the last set up by Greg Stroman’s fourth-quarter interception and 24-yard return to the Bucs 14.

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 403 yards for Tampa Bay (3-6), but was intercepted twice and lost a fumble on a sack inside the Washington 10.

The Bucs, who’ve lost three in a row and six of seven following a 2-0 start, failed to force a turnover on defense for the sixth straight game.

Meanwhile, three of their four giveaways thwarted scoring opportunities, including Jacquizz Rodgers’ fumble on a reception that rolled 18 yards into the Washington end zone, where it was recovered by safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

The Redskins were outgained 279 yards to 136 in the first two quarters, yet led 6-3 at halftime after getting two field goals from Hopkins.

The Bucs moved into Redskins’ territory on all five of their first-half possessions, but had little to show after Josh Norman made a leaping interception on the goal line of a pass intended for Chris Godwin, and Chandler Catanzaro missed a 30-yard field goal.

Catanzaro also missed a 47-yarder early in the second half.

Rodgers finished with eight receptions for 102 yards for Tampa Bay. Godwin had seven catches for 100 yards.

Adrian Peterson helped the Redskins run out the clock late, finishing with 68 yards rushing on 19 attempts.

INJURIES

Redskins: With Trent Williams recovering from surgery on his right thumb, Ty Nsekhe started at left tackle along with guards Jonathan Cooper and Tony Bergstrom, replacements for Shawn Lauvao and Brandon Scherff, who were lost for the season against the Falcons. Cornerback Quinton Dunbar (shin) also missed the game, with Fabian Moreau filling in.

Buccaneers: Played without defensive end Vinny Curry for the third time in four games. Safety Justin Evans (toe) left in the second quarter and linebacker Lavonte David (knee) departed in the third, though both returned.

Redskins: Home vs. Houston next Sunday.

Buccaneers: at New York Giants next Sunday.

McCoy also surpassed 500 career points, and vaulted into 26th place on the career yards rushing list by moving ahead of Marshawn Lynch (10,379), Eddie George (10,441) and Tiki Barber (10,449).

Cleveland Browns rookie Nick Chubb broke a club record and maybe Atlanta’s back with a 92-yard TD run.

The running back took a handoff at Cleveland’s 8, cut right and avoided a few tacklers before streaking to the end zone to give Cleveland a 28-10 lead midway through the third quarter.

Chubb’s 92-yard run is the longest in team history, topping the 90-yard run by Bobby Mitchell in 1959 against Washington.

It was Chubb’s second touchdown of the game. He also caught a 13-yard pass from Baker Mayfield in the second quarter.

The Tennessee Titans are following up their big win in Dallas with a strong first half against the Patriots.

Tennessee scored a season-high 28 points to beat the Cowboys on Monday night, and they now lead New England 24-10 at halftime.

The Titans scored a season-high 17 points in the first quarter with touchdown passes by Marcus Mariota on each of their first two possessions. Mariota is 11 of 16 for 152 yards.

The Titans have been getting plenty of pressure on Tom Brady. Former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan sacked Brady on the final play of the first half, the Titans’ second sack of the first half.

James Develin has run for a TD, and Stephen Gostkowski connected on one of his two 52-yard field goal attempt for New England.

Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth is donating a game check to the families of the victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks.

Whitworth will give his check from Los Angeles’ game against Seattle to the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victims Fund. The fund was set up to help the families of the 12 people killed by a gunman in Thousand Oaks, the home of the Rams’ training complex.

Whitworth is in the second season of a three-year, $36 million deal with the Rams. He has played a major role in the Rams’ transformation into an elite NFC team under Sean McVay.

Whitworth, Todd Gurley, Jared Goff, Michael Brockers and other players are also auctioning off their game jerseys to benefit the victims’ fund and American Red Cross Southern California Wildfire Relief.

Two wildfires are also burning in the same general area of the western Los Angeles suburbs.

2:30 p.m.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has moved ahead of Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season touchdown list with a sensational first half at Cincinnati.

He’s thrown three TD passes as the Saints have raced ahead 35-7, reaching the end zone on all five possessions. Brees has 509 career TD passes, one more than Favre.

Peyton Manning holds the record with 539.

The Saints have piled up 311 yards, and they have 21 first downs on 40 plays. Brees is 18 of 20 for 214 yards.

2:15 p.m.

Baker Mayfield enjoyed a perfect half.

Cleveland’s rookie quarterback completed 12 of 12 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in the first half against Atlanta. Mayfield connected on a 28-yard TD with Rashard Higgins and threw a 13-yard scoring pass to Nick Chubb.

Mayfield finished the half with a 158.3 quarterback rating, the highest possible score. The Browns did have one interception in the half, but it was thrown by running back Dontrell Hilliard, who attempted to hit a well-covered Mayfield on a trick play.

Patrick Mahomes has broken the Kansas City Chiefs record for touchdown passes in a season.

The first-year starter threw his 31st of the season — and second of the game to Tyreek Hill — to pass Len Dawson. The Hall of Famer threw 30 in 1964.

The record-setter came on third-and-goal from the Arizona 14. Hill celebrated by leaping into the stands, just as he did on his first TD catch, then playing with the TV cameras.

That last bit earned Hill an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Atlanta receiver Julio Jones has reached 10,000 yards receiving faster than any player in NFL history.

Jones reached the plateau in his 104th career game, catching a 30-yard pass in the second quarter from Matt Ryan. Calvin Johnson held the previous mark, getting to 10,000 yards in his 115th game. Torry Holt and Antonio Brown got there in 116 games.

Jones caught a short pass over the middle and broke a couple tackles on his first reception of the game. He came in with 933 yards receiving this season.

Moments later, Jones caught a 1-yard TD pass from Ryan to give the Falcons a 10-7 lead.

Six teams reached the end zone on the opening possession of their games Sunday to get Week 10 off to a high-scoring start.

Kansas City, which lost the coin toss for the first time all season, went 75 yards in 56 seconds. Three plays were needed, with Patrick Mahomes connecting with Tyreek Hill for 38 yards, then for a 37-yard touchdown.

Tennessee’s Darius Jennings returned the opening kickoff 58 yards, then the Titans needed seven plays to go 40 yards, capped by Marcus Mariota 4-yard TD pass to Jonnu Smith against New England.

Chicago’s Tarik Cohen had a 3-yard TD run to cap an eight-play, 75-yard drive vs. Detroit. But Cody Parkey missed the extra point.

Indianapolis covered 75 yards in seven plays and Andrew Luck found Eric Ebron for a 53-yard scoring pass against Jacksonville.

Buffalo used a mere two plays against the Jets, with newcomer Matt Barkley throwing 47 yards to Robert Foster before LeSean McCoy broke from a lengthy slump for his first touchdown this season, on a 28-yard run.

And Drew Brees threw his 507th career touchdown pass, leaving him one behind Brett Favre for second place on the career list, capping a 15-play, 75-yard drive that consumed 8 minutes, 30 seconds. It ended with Michael Thomas’ diving 7-yard catch.

___

1:15 p.m.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes needed only 56 seconds to throw his first touchdown pass against Arizona, moving him into a tie with Hall of Famer Len Dawson for the single-season franchise record.

Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill down the sideline for 38 yards on the game’s first play. Then, after an incompletion, Mahomes found Hill again for a 37-yard touchdown reception.

It was the 30th thrown by Mahomes this season. Dawson threw 30 during the 1964 season.

1:10 p.m.

The Indianapolis Colts honored kicker Adam Vinatieri, the NFL’s new career scoring leader, with a brief highlight show during pregame introduction before their game against Jacksonville.

Vinatieri received a roaring ovation from the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd when he was announced as the final starter. The 45-year-old waved to the crowd and slapped hands with a group of fans gathered around the American flag on the field.

Vinatieri broke Morten Andersen’s record two weeks ago at Oakland, but the Colts had a bye last week and Sunday marked the first time Indy could celebrate the record-breaking moment on its home turf.

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey was the last of the Titans defense introduced before kickoff for Tennessee’s game against New England.

Casey took the field carrying an American flag, and first shaking hands with a soldier as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service being held on Veteran’s Day. A soldier accompanied each Titans starter onto the field for a few steps.

Country artist Little Big Town performed the national anthem, which featured a flyover by military helicopters.

11:30 a.m.

Drew Brees and Tom Brady enter Week 10 of the NFL’s schedule neck and neck in closing in on matching Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season list.

Brees has 506 touchdowns passing, two behind Favre, as the New Orleans Saints play at Cincinnati. And Brady has 505 with his New England Patriots playing at Tennessee. Both are a little more than 30 behind Peyton Manning’s record of 539.

Brady does have chance to pass Manning on the career touchdowns passing list, including playoffs. Manning has 579, only three more than Brady.

On the other end of the quarterback matchup spectrum Sunday, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will feature a battle of the backups rather than far more intriguing AFC East showdown of two rookie first-round picks.

Matt Barkley is starting in place of Buffalo’s Josh Allen, who will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained throwing elbow. For New York, Josh McCown is starting in place Sam Darnold, who is sidelined by a strained right foot. Darnold was drafted third overall, four spots ahead of Allen.

Trubisky throws 3 TDs, Bears beat Lions 34-22

CHICAGO (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns, and the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 34-22 to snap a 10-game losing streak against division opponents on Sunday.

CHICAGO (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns, and the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 34-22 to snap a 10-game losing streak against division opponents on Sunday.

The Bears (6-3) had dropped nine of 10 against Detroit (3-6) and were seeking their first victory over a division opponent since Oct. 31, 2016, against Minnesota.

Chicago jumped out to a 26-7 halftime lead with Trubisky and Allen Robinson leading the way. And the Bears surpassed their win total from last year with their third straight victory.

Trubisky completed 23 of 30 passes against a short-handed secondary, with standout cornerback Darius Slay sidelined by a knee injury.

Allen Robinson caught six passes for 133 yards and two TDs after missing two games with a groin injury.

Rookie Anthony Miller added a career high 122 yards on five receptions, including a 45-yard TD and a 55-yard catch.

Khalil Mack had two of Chicago’s six sacks against Matthew Stafford — both in the second half after missing back-to-back games with an injured right ankle.

Bryce Callahan had a sack and an interception.

About the only downer for the Bears was Cody Parkey missing two extra points and two field goals. Things were so bad for him that fans cheered sarcastically when he made an extra point late in the first half and let out a loud roar when the Bears went for a 2-point conversion after a touchdown by Robinson in the third.

But Parkey’s misses didn’t stop the Bears from opening a three-game stretch against division opponents on a winning note.

Detroit dropped its third in a row after back-to-back victories.

Stafford was consistently under pressure again after getting sacked 10 times against Minnesota the previous week. He was 25 of 42 for 274 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions.

Coming off a 41-9 romp at Buffalo, Chicago immediately took control by scoring on its first four possessions.

The Bears went 75 yards on the game’s opening drive, with Tarik Cohen running it in from the 3 after Robinson broke a tackle by DeShawn Shead on a 35-yard slant. Parkey hit the right upright on the extra-point attempt.

Robinson also had Shead on him when he hauled in a 36-yard pass in the end zone on third-and-15 in the closing minute of the first quarter.

Chicago added to its lead early in the second quarter on a 45-yard touchdown pass to Miller, who wriggled free when Glover Quin tried to tackle him at about the 20. Parkey missed another extra point, this time off the left upright.

Callahan then intercepted Stafford at the Detroit 30 and got pushed out at the 18. That led to a 4-yard touchdown by Trubisky on a draw, making it 26-0.

Detroit scored with just over a minute left in the half when Kerryon Johnson went over the top for a touchdown.

INJURIES

Lions: TE Michael Roberts suffered a shoulder injury when he was tackled making a 9-yard catch early in the fourth quarter. … WR Marvin Jones Jr. hurt a knee.

Luck, Ebron lead Colts past struggling Jaguars 29-26

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes in the first half and the Indianapolis Colts' defense forced a late turnover Sunday to preserve a 29-26 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Indy (4-5) has won three straight. Tight end Eric Ebron had a career-high three touchdowns, including one on a 2-yard run,

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes in the first half and the Indianapolis Colts’ defense forced a late turnover Sunday to preserve a 29-26 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Indy (4-5) has won three straight. Tight end Eric Ebron had a career-high three touchdowns, including one on a 2-yard run, all in the first half.

Blake Bortles threw for 319 yards and two TDs but the Jaguars (3-6) came up short when Kenny Moore III stripped the ball from Rashad Greene Sr. and Malik Hooker recovered for the Colts with 1:24 to go. Initially, Greene was ruled down by contact, but it was overturned on a replay review from the booth.

Jacksonville, last year’s AFC runner-up, has lost five straight and six of seven since starting 2-0.

Luck took full advantage of mismatches in the first half as the Jaguars struggled to cover Indy’s tight ends.

Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox teamed up to catch eight passes for 133 yards and all three scores. Luck wound up 21 of 29 with 285 yards and one interception but avoided being sacked for the fourth consecutive game — the longest stretch of his pro career.

But in the second half, the Colts struggled. They picked up only two first downs over the final two quarters and missed their only scoring chance when Adam Vinatieri’s 52-yard field goal slid wide right.

Jacksonville, meanwhile, played keep-away.

They cut a 13-point halftime deficit to 29-23 when Leonard Fournette capped a 17-play drive to open the third quarter with a 1-yard TD catch.

After Josh Lambo missed his first field goal of the season, a 52-yarder wide left, he made a 55-yarder with 5:03 to go, making it 29-26.

He never got another chance because of the fumble.

It was a stark contrast from the first half, when the Colts were virtually unstoppable.

Ebron got it started with a 53-yard catch and run, diving in for the score on the seventh play of the game.

Former Colts receiver Donte Moncrief tied it at 7 with an 80-yard TD catch from Bortles, but Ebron answered with the second scoring run of his career on the final play of the first quarter.

Ebron’s 12-yard TD catch made it 21-7.

Fournette’s first touchdown run of the season made it 21-13, but Lambo’s extra point was blocked and the Colts nearly returned it for 2 points.

The Colts then took advantage of two 15-yard penalties on their next series, capping it with Alie-Cox’s 1-yard TD catch. And when the Jags were called for offsides on the extra point, Marlon Mack scored on a conversion run to make it 29-16.

INJURY REPORT

Jaguars: Center Brandon Linder and offensive tackle Ereck Flowers both left in the third quarter with knee injuries.

Colts: Defensive end Carroll Phillips left in the first half with an injured groin and did not return. Defensive tackle Grover Stewart left with an injured ankle in the fourth quarter and did not return.

UP NEXT

Jaguars: Jacksonville can snap its losing streak next Sunday when it hosts Pittsburgh.

Colts: Could get back into the AFC South race by beating Tennessee at home next Sunday.

Barkley, Bills light up listless Jets in 41-10 laugher

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Matt Barkley stunningly sparked Buffalo's bumbling offense with two touchdown passes, including one to offensive tackle Dion Dawkins. LeSean McCoy broke out of a season-long slump with 113 yards rushing and a pair of TD runs, and the Bills embarrassed the New York Jets 41-10 on Sunday.

Barkley

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Matt Barkley stunningly sparked Buffalo’s bumbling offense with two touchdown passes, including one to offensive tackle Dion Dawkins. LeSean McCoy broke out of a season-long slump with 113 yards rushing and a pair of TD runs, and the Bills embarrassed the New York Jets 41-10 on Sunday.

Barkley made his first start in nearly two years, and looked the best of any of the four quarterbacks the Bills (3-7) have trotted out this season. The 28-year-old journeyman was 15 of 25 for 232 yards while helping Buffalo snap a four-game losing streak as the Bills put up 451 yards of total offense.

Barkley got the nod from coach Sean McDermott ahead of the ineffective Nathan Peterman despite having just two weeks of practice with the Bills since signing on Oct. 30. Rookie Josh Allen has missed four straight games with a sprained right elbow, and Derek Anderson is sidelined with a concussion. Barkley’s last start came in the 2016 season finale for Chicago.

Meanwhile, the hot seat under coach Todd Bowles has reached a boiling point as the Jets (3-7) got completely manhandled by a team that entered with a league-low 96 points and had two touchdowns in its previous four games.

The Jets have a bye-week break and the future of Bowles, in his fourth season, is in serious doubt.

New York started 39-year-old Josh McCown in place of injured rookie Sam Darnold, but he couldn’t prevent the Jets from their fourth straight loss in front of a frustrated fan base that booed lustily throughout.

McCown was 17 of 34 for 135 yards with two interceptions.

Barkley certainly didn’t look like a guy with any rust, launching a 47-yard pass to Robert Foster on the Bills’ first offensive play. Foster, just promoted from the practice squad, beat top Jets cornerback Trumaine Johnson, who had missed the previous five games with an injured quadriceps.

On the next play, Barkley handed off to McCoy, who scored his first touchdown of the season with a 28-yard run that gave Buffalo a 7-0 lead 49 seconds in.

Barkley and the Bills took a 14-0 lead midway through the opening quarter on a fluky play. On third-and-7 from the 11, Zay Jones caught a pass and took it 10 yards before fumbling as he reached the goal line. Tight end Jason Croom recovered in the end zone for a touchdown that was upheld by video review.

The 14-play, 73-play drive was prolonged by a fake punt on fourth-and-6 from the Bills 47 when the ball was snapped directly to tight end Logan Thomas, a quarterback at Virginia Tech. Thomas then completed a 19-yard pass to Foster for the first down.

The 14 points matched the Bills’ combined total from their previous four games.

The Bills outgained the Jets 186-1 after one quarter, and added to their lead less than two minutes into the second quarter on Stephen Hauschka’s 54-yard field goal that made it 17-0.

If there was any doubt as to where this game was headed, the Bills added in some trickery — and embarrassment for the Jets — on their next drive.

Dawkins lined up as an eligible receiver on first-and-goal from the 7. Barkley, of course, found the 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman wide open for a touchdown.

The Jets had another brutal sequence on their next possession, when they had three — yes, three — holding penalties called on one play. Then McCown, facing a blitz, threw the ball up down the left sideline and Matt Milano picked it off.

Seven plays later, McCoy ran it in from the 1 — moments after it was ruled he was down there and had a TD reversed — to put Buffalo up 31-0.

The Jets ended the Bills’ shutout bid on the final play of the opening half on Jason Myers’ 55-yard field goal.

Buffalo outgained New York 313-68 in total yardage through the first two quarters.

Isaiah Crowell ended the Jets’ drought of 22 straight offensive possessions without a touchdown by running 5 yards for a score midway through the third quarter to make it 31-10.

Jones caught an 8-yard TD pass from Barkley late in the third quarter.

THE REAL McCOY

McCoy surpassed 500 career points, and vaulted into 26th place on the career yards rushing list by moving ahead of Marshawn Lynch (10,379), Eddie George (10,441) and Tiki Barber (10,449). McCoy also topped 100 yards rushing for the first time since gaining 156 in a 13-7 overtime win over Indianapolis on Dec. 10.

INJURIES

Bill CB Taron Johnson left in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and didn’t return. … Milano left to be evaluated for a head injury in the fourth quarter.

Mahomes throws 2 TD passes as Chiefs beat Cardinals 26-14

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes threw for 249 yards and two touchdowns, outplaying Arizona counterpart Josh Rosen in a matchup of two of the NFL's bright young quarterbacks, and the Kansas City Chiefs rolled past the Cardinals 26-14 on Sunday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes threw for 249 yards and two touchdowns, outplaying Arizona counterpart Josh Rosen in a matchup of two of the NFL’s bright young quarterbacks, and the Kansas City Chiefs rolled past the Cardinals 26-14 on Sunday.

Mahomes threw both TD passes to Tyreek Hill, the second giving the Chiefs’ first-year starter 31 for the season. That broke the franchise record set by Len Dawson in 1964 — with plenty of games to go.

Not to mention the playoffs, with the Chiefs (9-1) barreling toward the No. 1 seed.

Rosen had 195 yards passing with a touchdown and two picks, taking several brutal hits in the fourth quarter. David Johnson ran for 98 yards with TDs on the ground and through the air, while Larry Fitzgerald passed Terrell Owens for No. 2 on the NFL’s career receiving yardage list late in the game.

Fitzgerald finished with six catches for 50 yards to give him 15,952 for his brilliant career.

Hill had seven catches for 117 yards, and Kareem Hunt pounded his way for 71 yards rushing, as the Chiefs kept the Cardinals (2-7) winless in six meetings at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs’ weekly air show got started on the game’s first play, when Hill ran right past Patrick Peterson to haul in a 38-yard reception. Two plays later, Hill ran past the rest of the Arizona defense and Mahomes found him streaking into the end zone for a 37-yard scoring catch.

Arizona answered with a time-consuming 75-yard touchdown drive of its own.

Both defenses fared better the rest of the half, the Cardinals sacking Mahomes four times and the Chiefs’ rejuvenated defense getting enough pressure to keep Rosen uncomfortable.

The Chiefs finally reached the end zone again when Mahomes zipped a third-and-goal pass into double coverage to Hill, who cradled it for the touchdown with 5:31 left before halftime. That was the 31st touchdown pass of the year for Mahomes, breaking Dawson’s record with six games left in the regular season.

Hill leaped into the stands to celebrate, just as he did on his first TD catch, and then got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct when he commandeered the CBS camera in the end zone.

The Cardinals stuck with Johnson in the second half, and they slowly grinded their way toward another touchdown. He carried it six times and finished off a 12-play, 61-yard drive with a TD plunge to get the Cardinals within 20-14 midway through the third quarter.

Arizona got the ball back early in the fourth quarter, but Rosen had a screen pass picked off by Justin Houston at the line of scrimmage to give it right back. So instead of marching for a go-ahead TD, the Cardinals watched Spencer Ware dive in for a touchdown to extend the Chiefs’ lead.

The Cardinals were never able to get any closer.

COIN-TOSS LOSS

The Chiefs lost their first coin toss all season when the Cardinals successfully called tails. They deferred to the second half, forcing Kansas City to start on offense for the first time.

INJURIES

Cardinals: WR Chad Williams (ankle), LG Mike Iupati (back) and DL Robert Nkemdichi (calf) were inactive. … RG Justin Pugh left early in the second half with a knee injury.

Chiefs: WR Sammy Watkins (foot), SS Eric Berry (heel), LB Frank Zombo (hamstring) and OL Mitch Morse (concussion) were inactive. … Houston (hamstring) was active for the first time since Oct. 7.
