ST. LOUIS — Terrance Williams scored the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter, Bruce Carter returned an interception 25 yards for a TD on the next snap, and the Dallas Cowboys matched the largest comeback in team history to stun the St. Louis Rams 34-31 on Sunday.
DeMarco Murray’s 1-yard run late in the first half began the rally for Dallas (2-1), which trailed 21-0. Dez Bryant caught a 68-yard scoring pass in the third quarter, and Carter’s first career interception and touchdown came not long after he was evaluated for concussion-like symptoms on the bench.
Janoris Jenkins’ 25-yard interception return, the fifth defensive touchdown in his three seasons, put the Rams (1-2) up 21-0 with 6:06 to go in the first half.
Eagles 37, Redskins 34: In Philadelphia, rookie Jordan Matthews, the receiver who replaced DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia, caught two touchdown passes, and the Eagles beat Jackson and Washington in a nasty game marred by a fourth-quarter brawl.
Kirk Cousins threw for 427 yards and three touchdowns for Washington (1-2).
RAVENS 23, BROWNS 21: In Cleveland, with the Ray Rice case lingering over them, the Ravens pulled off a comeback win as Justin Tucker kicked a 32-yard field as time expired to give Baltimore a victory over Cleveland.
Joe Flacco set up Tucker’s winner with a 32-yard pass to Steve Smith with 1:28 left. The Ravens then ran the clock down before bringing in Tucker, who split the uprights and sent the Browns (1-2) to another tough loss.
COLTS 44, JAGUARS 17: In Jacksonville, Fla., Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes — three of them in a lopsided first half — and Indianapolis dominated Jacksonville.
It was a home opener to forget for the Jaguars (0-3).
The only positive for Jacksonville was getting rookie Blake Bortles on the field. He completed 14 of 24 passes for 223 yards.
Indianapolis (1-2) made plays from start to finish. Luck completed 31 of 39 passes for 370 yards.
CHARGERS 22, BILLS 10: In Orchard Park, N.Y., a week after throwing three touchdown passes to tight end Antonio Gates to knock off Seattle, Philip Rivers hit Eddie Royal for two scores in a win over BuffaloBills.
Royal scored on 3- and 5-yard receptions and finished with four catches 42 yards. Malcom Floyd had two catches for 98 yards in a game the Chargers (2-1) never trailed. Rivers finished 18 of 25 for 256 yards and extended his touchdown streak to 23 games.
GIANTS 30, TEXANS 17: In East Rutherford, N.J., Rashad Jennings ran for a career-high 176 yards and a touchdown and Eli Manning threw two TD passes as the New York Giants overcame early mistakes and beat suddenly error-prone Houston.
The victory put some life back into the Giants (1-2) after two disappointing efforts.
BENGALS 33, TITANS 7: In Cincinnati, Andy Dalton caught a touchdown pass — the first Bengals quarterback to pull off that feat — and Cincinnati stayed undefeated with a victory over Tennessee.
The Bengals (3-0) head into their bye week with their best start in eight years.
PATRIOTS 16, RAIDERS 9: InFoxborough, Mass., Tom Brady threw a touchdown pass, Stephen Gostkowski kicked three field goals and sluggish New England held on to beat Oakland.
Darren McFadden’s potential tying touchdown run was nullified by a holding penalty.
LIONS 19, PACKERS 7: In Detroit, Don Carey returned a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown, and Detroit’s defensive front stuffed Green Bay, leading the Lions over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
The Lions (2-1) came in with a secondary decimated by injuries, but that didn’t much matter with Rodgers under constant pressure. He was sacked twice and threw for only 162 yards, and Green Bay (1-2) wasn’t any better when running the ball.
Former Titans kicker Bironas killed in car crash: In Nashville, Tenn., Rob Bironas, who worked his way through odd jobs and the Arena Football League before becoming one of the NFL’s most accurate kickers, died in a car crash. He was 36.
The former Tennessee Titans player died Saturday night when he lost control on a curve in his 2009 GMC Yukon Denali and crashed after 11 p.m. less than a mile from home, Metro Nashville Police said.
In a statement on the department website, police said his SUV was speeding when it went off the road and hit a line of trees before coming to a stop upside down in a culvert.
The Titans released Bironas in March after nine seasons.
Bironas married Rachel Bradshaw, daughter of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw, in June. Bradshaw did not appear on the “Fox NFL Sunday” pregame show and was going to Nashville to be with his daughter.
