ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brandon Carr returned an interception 49 yards for a clinching touchdown, and Dallas beat Eli Manning and the Giants 36-31 for the first time at their fancy $1.2 billion stadium with six takeaways.

Tony Romo shook off a hit to the ribs that knocked him out for the final Dallas play of the first half and threw a pair of touchdown passes to Jason Witten.

SAINTS 23, FALCONS 17, NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees passed for 357 yards and two scores, and the Saints held on for the win in coach Sean Payton’s return from his bounty ban.

Roman Harper secured the win when he intercepted a tipped fourth-down pass in the end zone with under a minute left.

CHIEFS 28, JAGUARS 2

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Alex Smith threw two early touchdown passes, Kansas City’s defense dominated all day and the Chiefs began the Andy Reid era with a victory at Jacksonville.

Jamaal Charles ran for 77 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with a quadriceps injury, but that was about the only negative for the Chiefs.

BEARS 24, BENGALS 21

CHICAGO (AP) — Jay Cutler passed to Brandon Marshall for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, helping Chicago get the victory in Marc Trestman’s coaching debut with the team.

It wasn’t quite the display the Bears were looking for after making some big changes in the offseason. But it was good enough.

PATRIOTS 23, BILLS 21

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Stephen Gostkowski hit a 35-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to send New England to the road win.

Tom Brady set up the decisive score by leading a 49-yard, 12-play drive during which he twice completed passes to convert third downs. It was Brady’s 36th career victory in which the Patriots were tied or trailed in the fourth quarter.

LIONS 34, VIKINGS 24

DETROIT (AP) — Reggie Bush turned a short pass into a 77-yard touchdown in the third quarter and finished with 191 yards of offense to help Detroit pull away from Minnesota.

Joique Bell ran for two TDs, including a go-ahead score that gave the Lions their first lead early in the third quarter.

Matthew Stafford was 28 of 43 for 357 yards with two TDs. His last score was a 1-yard lob to rookie tight end Joseph Fauria with 6:47 left that sealed the win.

RAMS 27, CARDINALS 24, ST. LOUIS (AP) — Greg Zuerlein kicked a 48-yard field goal with 40 seconds left to lift St. Louis to the comeback victory.

JETS 18, BUCS 17

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Nick Folk kicked a 48-yard field goal with 2 seconds remaining after Lavonte David’s personal foul penalty kept New York’s drive alive, and the Jets pulled out an improbable opening victory.

With the Jets trailing 17-15 and time running out, rookie Geno Smith scrambled for 10 yards — and was shoved while he was out of bounds by David.

The 15-yard penalty gave the Jets the ball at the Buccaneers 30 and set up Folk’s winning field goal on the next play

Things appeared dim for the Jets just moments earlier when Rian Lindell kicked a 37-yard field goal with 34 seconds left.

TITANS 16, STEELERS 9, PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tennessee’s revamped defense sacked Ben Roethlisberger five times and the Titans shut down the Steelers.

Chris Johnson ran for 70 clock-chewing yards, Jackie Battle bulled his way to a 3-yard touchdown in the second quarter, and Rob Bironas kicked three field goals for the Titans. Tennessee’s new-look defense did the rest.

SEAHAWKS 12, PANTHERS 7, CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Russell Wilson threw for 320 yards for Seattle, including a 43-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse in the fourth quarter.

The Seahawks managed just two field goals before Kearse beat cornerback Josh Thomas down the right sideline for the go-ahead score with 10:13 left.

DOLPHINS 23, BROWNS 10, CLEVELAND (AP) — Ryan Tannehill passed for 272 yards and a touchdown, leading the Dolphins to a win over the Browns, who fell to 1-14 in Week 1 since 1999.
