ATLANTA — Jay Cutler threw for 381 yards and a touchdown, former Tulane standout Matt Forte ran for a couple of second-half scores, and Chicago picked up another road victory by beating Atlanta 27-13 on Sunday.
Chicago (3-3) has won three of four away from Soldier Field this season, though there were so many Bears fans at the Georgia Dome that it seemed almost like a neutral site.
After the Falcons (2-4) rallied from a 13-3 halftime deficit to tie it late in the third quarter, the Bears bounced back to hand Atlanta its third straight loss. Cutler unleashed a towering pass to Alshon Jeffery that went for 74 yards. On the next play, Forte scored on a 6-yard run.
The Falcons went three-and-out, and Chicago finished them off with a 15-play, 87-yard drive. Forte capped it with a 9-yard scoring burst up the middle.
RAVENS 48, BUCCANEERS 17: In Tampa, Florida, Joe Flacco threw for 306 yards and five touchdowns to help Baltimore beat Tampa Bay.
Baltimore (4-2) scored on six straight possessions to begin the game, with Flacco throwing touchdown passes on the first five. Torrey Smith caught the first two, and Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanaro and Steve Smith had the others as the Ravens rebounded from a road loss to Indianapolis.
Tampa Bay (1-5) was embarrassed for the second time in six games under first-year coach Lovie Smith. The Bucs fell 56-14 at Atlanta on Sept. 18.
BRONCOS 31, JETS 17: In East Rutherford, New Jersey, Peyton Manning connected with Julius Thomas twice and Demaryius Thomas once, leaving the Denver quarterback two shy of Brett Favre’s record for career touchdown passes, and the Broncos held on to beat New York.
Manning has 506 touchdown passes, and could tie or break Favre’s record next Sunday at home against San Francisco. Manning finished 22-of-33 for 237 yards.
The Jets (1-5) had a chance to tie when they got the ball deep in their own territory with less than a minute left. But after a sack put the ball at the 1, Geno Smith’s pass was intercepted by Aqib Talib, who returned it 22 yards for a sealing touchdown that sent New York to its fifth straight loss.
PATRIOTS 37, BILLS 22: In Orchard Park, N.Y., Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes and had his 60th 300-yard game to lead New England past Buffalo.
Former LSU standout Brandon LaFell had two touchdown catches, including a 56-yarder, and the Patriots forced three turnovers that resulted in 13 points in the second quarter.
PACKERS 27, DOLPHINS 24: In Miami Gardens, Florida, Aaron Rodgers threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless with 3 seconds left to lift Green Bay past Miami.
Green Bay twice gave up leads and trailed 24-17 before Rodgers directed a 68-yard drive for a field goal with 4:09 to go. The Packers (4-2) quickly forced a punt to start at their 40 with 2:04 left, and Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson on fourth-and-10 for 18 yards to keep the winning drive alive.
CARDINALS 30, REDSKINS 20: In Glendale, Arizona, Carson Palmer returned from a five-week absence to throw two touchdown passes, and Arizona beat Washington to take the sole NFC West lead.
Larry Fitzgerald caught six passes for a season-high 98 yards and his first touchdown of the season to help the Cardinals (4-1) bounce back from a 41-20 drubbing at Denver.
CHARGERS 31, RAIDERS 28:In Oakland, California, Branden Oliver scored on a 1-yard run with 1:56 to play and San Diego spoiled interim coach Tony Sparano’s Oakland debut.
Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes and engineered the winning drive to give San Diego (5-1) its fifth straight win and send Oakland (0-5) to its 11th straight loss.
BROWNS 31, STEELERS 10: In Cleveland, Brian Hoyer passed for 217 yards, leading the Browns to rout of Pittsburgh.
Hoyer threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron and improved to 6-2 as Cleveland’s starter as the Browns (3-2) beat the Steelers for the third time in 23 games. Cleveland hadn’t beaten Pittsburgh so badly since a 51-0 victory in 1989.
TITANS 16, JAGUARS 14: In Nashville, Tennessee, Sammie Hill blocked a field goal attempt in the final seconds, and Tennessee held off winless Jacksonville to snap a four-game losing streak.
LIONS 17, VIKINGS 3: In Minneapolis, Tahir Whitehead intercepted two of Teddy Bridgewater’s passes, and Joique Bell put the game away with a fourth-quarter touchdown run in Detroit’s victory over Minnesota.
With Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush missing, the Lions played a low-risk game. But their defense made another case for top billing in the league. Ziggy Ansah had 2 1/2 of Detroit’s eight sacks,
Bridgewater threw three interceptions in his second career start for the Vikings (2-4).
The biggest problem for Detroit (4-2) was two more missed field goal attempts, through Matt Prater did make one from 52 yards in his Lions debut. Detroit won at Minnesota for only the second time in its last 17 trips.
