LOS ANGELES

Francisco remained unbeaten with a dominant defensive performance against struggling Los Angeles. George Kittle had eight catches for 103 yards for the Niners (5-0), who held Los Angeles' once-unstoppable offence to 157 yards in coach Kyle Shanahan's first victory over Rams coach Sean McVay in a game in which both of these NFC West rivals were playing their starters. These longtime coaching colleagues' teams are going in opposite directions after this one-sided showdown at the Coliseum. San Francisco used its possession offence and a sturdy defence to stay alongside New England as the NFL's only unbeaten teams, while the Rams (3-3) are on their first three-game losing streak of McVay's 21/2-year tenure. Tevin Coleman rushed for an early touchdown for San Francisco, while Garoppolo was mostly effective despite two turnovers. The Niners didn't score a touchdown in the final 27 minutes, but they're off to their fourth 5-0 start in franchise history, and their first since 1990.

SEAHAWKS 32, BROWNS 28 CLEVELAND Chris Carson scored on a oneyard touchdown run with 3:30 left, Russell Wilson threw two TD passes and ran for one and Seattle rallied past mistake-prone Cleveland, improving to 3-0 on the road for the first time in 39 years. The Seahawks (5-1) gave up touchdowns on Cleveland's first three possessions before storming back. Wilson connected with Jaron Brown for two scores, and Seattle's cool quarterback scampered 16 yards for a TD. The Seahawks last won their first three road games in 1980, when they went 4-12.

SAINTS 13, JAGUARS 6 JACKSONVILLE, FLA . Teddy Bridgewater found Jared Cook for a four-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and New Orleans held on to beat Jacksonville and improve to 4-0 without injured starter Drew Brees. Coming off a 300-yard, fourtouchdown performance against Tampa Bay, Bridgewater was less effective against the Jaguars (2-4). But he did enough for New Orleans' defence.

Gardner Minshew was sacked twice, hurried often and threw his first interception as a starter. The rookie sensation completed 14 of 29 passes for 163 yards and was held without a touchdown for the first time this season. Bridgewater was 24 of 36 passing for 240 yards for the Saints (5-1).

VIKINGS 38, EAGLES 20 MINNEAPOLIS Kirk Cousins threw to Stefon Diggs for three of his four touchdowns, racking up a season-high 333 passing yards as Minnesota ravaged Philadelphia's secondary. Diggs scored on plays in the first half that covered 51 and 62 yards, becoming the first player since Randy Moss in 2000 to post two touchdown receptions of 50-plus yards in one game for the Vikings (4-2).

His most important catch came late in the third quarter, a double toe tap in the back of the end zone from 11 yards out that pushed the lead to 11 points after Carson Wentz and the Eagles (3-3) had pulled within 24-20 with 17 straight points. Cousins went 22 for 29 with one sack and one interception on a deflected ball.

RAVENS 23, BENGALS 17 BALTIMORE Lamar Jackson ran for a careerhigh 152 yards and a touchdown, threw for 236 yards and guided Baltimore past hapless Cincinnati. Jackson carried 19 times, including three kneel-downs, and finished tantalizingly short of Michael Vick's singlegame record of 173 yards rushing by a quarterback. Jackson now has three career 100-yard rushing games, tied with Billy Kilmer for most by a quarterback in his first two seasons since 1950. The Bengals fell to 0-6. Baltimore (4-2) finished with 497 yards of offence, and the Ravens retained sole possession of first place in the AFC North.

PANTHERS 37, BUCCANEERS 26 LONDON Christian McCaffrey scored two touchdowns and Carolina turned five interceptions by Jameis Winston into 17 points as the Panthers beat Tampa Bay. After starting the season with two straight losses with hobbled Cam Newton at quarterback, the Panthers (4-2) have been on a roll with Kyle Allen at quarterback owing to McCaffrey's big plays and an opportunistic defence that had a franchise recordtying seven takeaways on the day. Both of those factors came up big on Carolina's first trip to London in front of a large contingent of Panthers fans for what was designated as a home game for the Bucs (2-4).

WASHINGTON 17, DOLPHINS 16 MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. Rookie Terry McLaurin caught two touchdown passes and Washington stopped Miami's two-point conversion attempt with six seconds left in a matchup between winless teams. Adrian Peterson more than doubled his season rushing total with 118 yards for Bill Callahan in his first game as interim coach.

Washington intercepted Josh Rosen twice and sacked him five times before he was benched at the start of the fourth quarter with the Dolphins trailing 17-3.

Washington (1-5) looked like a different team after firing coach Jay Gruden, but the calibre of the opposition had something to do with that. The Dolphins (0-5) remained winless under Brian Flores but helped their chances of securing the No. 1 draft pick in April.

CARDINALS 34, FALCONS 33 GLENDALE, ARIZ. Kyler Murray threw for 340 yards and three touchdowns and Arizona built a big lead, lost it and then rallied again for a win over Atlanta. Atlanta looked as though it would tie the game with 1:53 left after Matt Ryan hit Devonta Freeman on a 12-yard touchdown pass, but 44-year-old Matt Bryant missed left on the extra point, and the Cardinals ran out the clock from there. Murray is the first NFL quarterback to have at least 20 completions in his first six career games. The Cardinals (2-3-1) won at home for the first time since last Oct. 28. The Falcons (1-5) have lost four straight games.

JETS 24, COWBOYS 22 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Sam Darnold gave the Jets' struggling offence a huge boost by throwing two touchdown passes in his return from mononucleosis, and New York held on to beat Dallas for its first win of the season. The Jets led 21-9 in the fourth quarter, but Dak Prescott and the top-ranked Cowboys offence stormed back - and had a chance to tie in the closing moments. Prescott ran for a four-yard touchdown with 43 seconds left, making it a two-point game.

Going for the tie, Prescott dropped back and was quickly met by a blitzing Jamal Adams and his pass on the conversion try fell short of Jason Witten in the end zone.

The Cowboys (3-3) tried an onside kick, but Demaryius Thomas recovered for the Jets (1-4), who won for the first time under coach Adam Gase. It was the third straight loss for Dallas.

BRONCOS 16, TITANS 0 DENVER Denver's swarming defence sent Marcus Mariota to the bench and Tennessee to its fourth loss in five games. The Broncos (2-4) had seven sacks in a game for the first time since their 2015 Super Bowl season and they picked off three passes.

Chris Harris Jr. and Justin Simmons intercepted Mariota, who was sacked three times and was replaced by Ryan Tannehill after Simmons' interception led to a twoyard touchdown run by Phillip Lindsay that made it 13-0.
