LOS ANGELES -- Robert Woods caught two of Jared Goff's three touchdown passes during a dominant third quarter, and the surging Los Angeles Rams returned after a month away from home for their fourth straight victory, 33-7 over the depleted Houston Texans on Sunday.

After struggling to a 9-7 lead during a quiet first half for the NFL's highest-scoring team, the Rams (7-2) ran away with a series of big throws by Goff, who passed for a career-high 355 yards.

Woods caught a 94-yard TD pass to break it open before Sammy Watkins and Woods made TD catches 19 seconds apart late in the third quarter. The Rams defence shut out Houston in the second half and won at the Coliseum for just the third time in 11 games since returning to Los Angeles last season. Woods finished with eight catches for 171 yards, making the longest catch of his NFL career, before following it up with a 12-yard TD.

Bruce Ellington caught a 26-yard TD pass for the Texans (3-6).

NFL scoring leader Greg Zuerlein kicked four field goals for the Rams.

49ers finally win

Santa Clara, Calif. - C.J. Beathard threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a third score to lead the San Francisco 49ers to their first win of the season with a 31-21 victory over the New York Giants.

Beathard connected on an 83-yard TD to Marquise Goodwin and a 47yarder to Garrett Celek in the second quarter as the 49ers (1-9) took advantage of another listless effort by the Giants (1-8) to win for the first time under coach Kyle Shanahan. This was a historically bad matchup, marking the first time in 33 years that two teams with only one combined win met this late in a season.

Falcons romp over Cowboys

Atlanta - Adrian Clayborn set an Atlanta record with six sacks, Matt Ryan threw a pair of short touchdown passes and the Falcons romped to a 27-7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, who looked anemic offensively in their first game without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott. Ryan hooked up with Justin Hardy on a three-yard pass for Atlanta's first offensive touchdown in the third quarter this season. Early in the fourth, Ryan put the game away for the Falcons (5-4) by tossing one to Austin Hooper for a one-yard score. The Cowboys fells to 5-4.

Vikings making some noise

Landover, Md. - Case Keenum threw touchdowns to four different receivers to build a big lead, and the NFC North-leading Vikings won their fifth in a row, 38-30 over Washington. With Teddy Bridgewater active for the first time since January, 2016, after a devastating knee injury, Keenum was 21-of-29 for 304 yards and TD passes to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, David Morgan and Jarius Wright. He was picked off on consecutive throws by D.J. Swearinger. Thielen had eight catches for a season-high 166 yards. Latavius Murray also ran for a score as five players got into the end zone for Minnesota (7-2), which was 8-of-12 on third downs.

Is the Pack back?

Chicago - Brett Hundley threw for 212 yards and a touchdown, Nick Perry had three sacks and the Packers snapped a three-game losing streak as Green Bay beat the Chicago Bears 23-16. Hundley, starting his third game for an injured Aaron Rodgers, threw a 17-yard touchdown to Davante Adams to make it 23-13 with 5:29 to play, and the Packers (5-4) hung on to beat the Bears (3-6) for the eighth time in nine games. It was the first victory for a Packers QB not named Rodgers or Brett Favre since 1989.

Titans off to strong start, too

Nashville - Marcus Mariota tossed a 7-yard touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray with 36 seconds left, and the Tennessee Titans rallied for their fourth consecutive victory, beating the Cincinnati Bengals 24-20. It's the longest winning streak for the Titans (6-3) since taking five in a row in 2009, and it's their best start to a season since 2008 when the Titans last reached the playoffs as the AFC's No. 1 seed.

Jags win in OT

Jacksonville, Fla. - Josh Lambo kicked a 30-yard field goal with 3:12 remaining in overtime, lifting the Jaguars in a wild game 20-17 over the Chargers. Lambo's kick got tipped at the line of scrimmage and still cleared the crossbar. The former soccer player and one-time Charger ran the other way and slid on both knees near midfield before getting mobbed by teammates. It gave Jacksonville (6-3) its first three-game winning streak since 2013.

Bucs back in win column

Tampa - Ryan Fitzpatrick led two long scoring drives and Tampa Bay limited the Jets to less than 200 yards of offence until late in the fourth quarter to snap a five-game losing streak as the Buccaneers (3-6) beat New York 15-10. The Buccaneers improved to 3-6; the Jets fell to 4-6.

Meanwhile, in the basement ...

Detroit - The Cleveland Browns were up 10-0 early in the game for their first double-digit lead of the season, and were up 24-17 in the third after DeShone Kizer led two consecutive touchdown drives, but, you know. Matthew Stafford lofted a 29-yard tiebreaking touchdown to Eric Ebron early in the fourth quarter and the Detroit Lions (5-4) went on to beat the Browns 38-24. Cleveland falls to 0-9. Detroit is the only franchise to have a 0-16 season, in 2008.

Anthem update

Three players took a knee during the national anthem before the New York Giants game at the San Francisco 49ers, as the rest of the league stood during Veterans Day weekend.

49ers Eric Reid and Marquise Goodwin, both of whom have been protesting for most of the season, knelt, as did Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon, who was just activated. Vernon had been protesting while he was injured. The NFL Players Association had asked all players to observe a two-minute moment of silence before games to honour veterans. Other players who have been protesting most of the season stood for the anthem this week, including the Seahawks Michael Bennett, who stood before Thursday night's game.

Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding hands with soldiers and stood with teammates for the anthem for the first time since U.S. President Donald Trump criticized players for protesting.
