ATLANTA — Michael Turner had a tiebreaking 3-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, Matt Bryant kicked four field goals and the Atlanta Falcons beat the Dallas Cowboys 19-13 on Sunday night to extend their run as the NFL's only unbeaten team.


Turner had 20 carries for 102 yards and Matt Ryan had a season-high 342 yards passing for the Falcons (8-0), who took their first lead on Turner's TD with 14:21 left in the game.


Tony Romo completed 6 of 6 passes for 78 yards, including a 21-yard scoring pass to Kevin Ogletree, on the Cowboys' touchdown drive later in the fourth.


Colts 23, Dolphins 20

INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck broke the NFL's single-game rookie record by throwing for 433 yards in leading Indianapolis.


Luck was 30 of 48 with two TDs and broke Cam Newton's previous mark of 422 yards set last season. And it came on the day coach Chuck Pagano returned to Lucas Oil Stadium for the first time since being diagnosed with leukemia.



Buccaneers 42, Raiders 32

OAKLAND, Calif. — Rookie Doug Martin rushed for a franchise-record 251 yards and four touchdowns and Ahmad Black intercepted a Carson Palmer pass after Oakland had cut an 18-point deficit to three late in the fourth quarter.


Martin, who was born in Oakland, had a memorable homecoming for the Bucs (4-4) by scoring on runs of 1, 45, 67 and 70 yards in the second half as he gashed what had been an improved run defense for the Raiders (3-5).



Packers 31, Cardinals 17

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Tom Crabtree had a 72-yard touchdown that was Green Bay's longest of the season, and Randall Cobb added two scoring catches.


The Packers (6-3) finished with a season-high 176 yards rushing on 39 carries, the first time in a month they've cracked the century mark.




Texans 21, Bills 9

HOUSTON — Matt Schaub threw two touchdown passes and Arian Foster ran for 111 yards against Buffalo's NFL-worst rushing defense.


Andre Johnson caught eight passes for 118 yards and Foster scored for the fifth straight game for Houston (7-1).



Panthers 21, Redskins 13

LANDOVER, Md. — Cam Newton completed 13 of 23 passes for 201 yards with a touchdown and ran eight times for 37 yards and a score as Carolina snapped a five-game losing streak.


The Panthers (2-6) were in desperate need of a win after a series of close defeats that had players questioning whether the team had any leadership. Newton responded with one of his best games of the season, including a 19-yard touchdown pass to Steve Smith and an 82-yard completion that set up a score.



Bears 51, Titans 20

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Brian Urlacher became the latest Chicago defender to return an interception for a touchdown and Jay Cutler threw three TD passes to Brandon Marshall.


Cornerback Charles Tillman forced four fumbles and Chicago created five turnovers while winning its sixth in a row.




Seahawks 30, Vikings 20

SEATTLE — Marshawn Lynch ran for 124 yards and a touchdown, rookie QB Russell Wilson threw three first-half touchdowns, and Seattle overcame 182 yards rushing by Adrian Peterson.




Broncos 31, Bengals 23

CINCINNATI — Peyton Manning overcame a pair of interceptions by throwing three touchdown passes.


Trindon Holliday also returned a kickoff a Broncos-record 105 yards for a touchdown.





Ravens 25, Browns 15

CLEVELAND — Joe Flacco threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith with 4:26 as Baltimore won its 11th straight game inside the AFC North.


Smith caught Flacco's strike and spun away from cornerback Joe Haden as the Ravens (6-2) beat the Browns (2-7) for the 10th consecutive time. It was also Baltimore's 15th straight win following a loss, and helped the Ravens shake off a 30-point loss to Houston two weeks ago.



Lions 31, Jaguars 14

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Mikel Leshoure ran for three touchdowns, Calvin Johnson got involved early and Detroit turned in its most complete victory of the season.
