GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers gave the rest of the NFL its first true glimpse of what Matt LaFleur's offense can look like with Aaron Rodgers at the helm.

And it was scary.

Rodgers had his best game by far under the new Packers coach, throwing for 429 yards and five touchdowns and running for another as Green Bay beat the Oakland Raiders 42-24 on Sunday.


Saints pound Bears, now 5-0 minus Brees

CHICAGO (AP) The New Orleans Saints insisted they were ready for the challenge once Drew Brees went down. All they've done since is back up their words with wins.

Teddy Bridgewater threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns, and the Saints improved to 5-0 without their injured star quarterback by beating the Chicago Bears 36-25 on Sunday.


Cowboys run over Eagles in 37-10 rout

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Ezekiel Elliott powered into the Philadelphia secondary and simply ran over safety Malcolm Jenkins.

The apparent 14-yard touchdown run by the star Dallas running back was overturned on review because his knee was down at the 1 - but the message had been sent early.


49ers get ugly win vs. 'Skins, go to 6-0

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Nick Bosa sacked Case Keenum to run out the clock, belly flopped onto the field and rode it like a Slip 'N Slide.

"Slid way farther than I thought was going to slide," he said.


Jackson leads Ravens to win in Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) Lamar Jackson was mad. He was mad about settling for field goals three times in the first half. Mad about a delay-of-game penalty and a 13-yard run on third down when he needed 15 yards. Mad to see Justin Tucker trotting on the field again for a field goal.

John Harbaugh saw the anger, so he called timeout and gave Jackson a chance. A critical fourth down would be in the hands of Baltimore's young QB, not on the foot of its kicker.


Colts beat Texans to take AFC South lead

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts kept insisting Jacoby Brissett could win games with his arm.

On Sunday, he showed everyone else what the team knew all along.


Cousins throws 4 TDs, Vikings top Lions

DETROIT (AP) The Minnesota Vikings were so confident in Kirk Cousins they called for a deep pass, instead of a more conservative run, to seal a victory against the Detroit Lions.

He validated the gutsy decision.


Titans win, Chargers fumble at goal line

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans came up with an amazing goal-line stand stopping the Los Angeles Chargers.

Not once, twice but thrice.


Rams end 3-game skid, Falcons lose Ryan

ATLANTA (AP) Jalen Ramsey's entrance boosted the Los Angeles Rams' hopes they can return to the postseason.

Matt Ryan's exit with an ankle injury provided a painful reminder the Atlanta Falcons have little hope remaining to avoid another losing season.


Bills rally by winless Dolphins, now 5-1

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Jordan Phillips was the first to admit the Buffalo Bills didn't resemble one of the NFL's best defenses through 2 1/2 quarters against the winless Miami Dolphins.

That changed when the defensive tackle dug in, burst through the Dolphins line and tackled Ryan Fitzpatrick for a 10-yard loss on first-and-goal from the Buffalo 2. One play later, Tre'Davious White made a diving interception at the 2 to spark a second-half comeback in which the Bills rallied from a five-point deficit for a 31-21 win on Sunday.
