Saints clobber bills for 7th straight win

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have extended their winning streak by crushing an AFC playoff contender.

Mark Ingram scored a career-best three touchdowns as the Saints won their seventh straight game, a 47-10 pounding of the Buffalo Bills.

The Saints blew the game open by scoring on five of their first six possessions. New Orleans finished with 298 yards rushing and 32 first downs, with Ingram providing 131 yards.

Drew Brees also ran for a TD and was 18 of 25 for 184 yards and no interceptions to help the Saints stay perfect since an 0-2 start.

The Bills slipped to 5-4 with their second straight loss and didn't reach the end zone until after the two-minute warning.

Also in the NFL:

— Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys' offense looked anemic in its first game without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott. Dallas gained just 233 total yards and was shut out over the final 51 minutes of a 27-7 loss in Atlanta. Adrian Clayborn set an Atlanta record with six sacks, the second most in NFL history. Matt Ryan tossed a pair of short TD passes after Tevin Coleman's one-yard run gave the Falcons a 10-7 halftime lead. Both teams are 5-4

— The Rams were winners in their first home game in a month. Robert Woods grabbed two of Jared Goff's three touchdown passes during the third quarter of a 33-7 rout of the Texans. Woods caught a 94-yard TD pass to break it open before Sammy Watkins and Woods made TD catches 19 seconds apart late in the third quarter. Woods had eight receptions for 171 yards for the 7-2 Rams, who are off to their best nine-game start in 16 years.

— Case Keenum threw touchdowns to four different receivers while the Vikings built a 35-17 lead in a 38-30 win at Washington. Keenum was 21 of 29 for 304 yards and TD passes to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, David Morgan and Jarius Wright. Minnesota picked up its fifth consecutive win, improved to 7-2 and dropped the Redskins to 4-5.

— Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes as the Patriots crushed the Broncos 41-6 to match their own AFC record with their 12th consecutive road victory. Brady was 25 of 34 passing for 266 yards as New England improved to 7-2. Dion Lewis scored on a 103-yard kickoff return and added a seven-yard rushing TD to help the Pats send the 3-6 Broncos to their fifth straight loss.

— Chris Boswell drilled a 33-yard field goal as time expired to push the Steelers past the Colts 20-17. Ben Roethlisberger's 32-yard completion to Antonio Brown with 35 seconds left set up the late kick that gave the 7-2 Steelers their fourth straight victory. Roethlisberger had 236 passing yards and threw a pair of scoring passes in the second half after Indianapolis took a 17-3 lead.

— The Packers won for the first time since losing quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Brett Hundley threw for 212 yards and a touchdown in a 23-16 triumph over the Bears. Ty Montgomery had a 37-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to help Green Bay end a three-game skid and improve to 5-4. Nick Perry had three sacks of rookie Mitchell Trubisky, who threw for a season-high 297 yards and hit Josh Bellamy for a 46-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

— The Lions are also 5-4 after Matthew Stafford connected on 17 of 26 passes for 249 yards and three second-half touchdowns in a 38-24 comeback over the winless Browns. Detroit quickly fell behind 10-0 and didn't take the lead for good until Stafford lofted a 29-yard, tiebreaking touchdown to Eric Ebron early in the fourth quarter. The Browns slumped to 0-9 despite rookie Deshone Kizer, who ran for 57 yards and a touchdown while completing 21 of his 37 passes for 232 yards and a TD in his best game of the season.

— The 49ers finally earned their first win of the season as C.J. Beathard threw for 288 yards and two TDs in a 31-21 victory over the stumbling Giants. Beathard also ran for a TD after connecting on an 83-yard TD to Marquise Goodwin and a 47-yarder to Garrett Celek in the second quarter. San Francisco gained its first win under coach Kyle Shanahan in a game that only heightened speculation that the 1-8 Giants might replace head coach Ben McAdoo.

— The Titans earned their fourth straight win by knocking off the Bengals 24-20 on Marcus Mariota's seven-yard touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray with 36 seconds to play. Murray ran for two touchdowns and Mariota finished with 264 yards passing as Tennessee improved to 6-3 with their longest winning streak since 2009. Cincinnati took its only lead at 20-17 on a 70-yard TD pass from Andy Dalton to A.J. Green with 5:03 left before Tennessee stayed tied with Jacksonville atop the AFC South at 6-3.

— The Jaguars have their first three-game winning streak in four years after Josh Lambo nailed a 30-yard field goal with 3:12 remaining in overtime to complete a 20-17 decision over the Chargers. Lambo also extended the game with a 34-yard kick to cap a wild final two minutes of regulation that included a fumble, two interceptions, a taunting penalty and a roughing the passer infraction. Chargers rookie Austin Ekeler fumbled while trying to run out the clock with a three-point lead, and Blake Bortles threw two interceptions while trying to rally the Jaguars in the final two minutes.

— Ryan Fitzpatrick beat his former team and the Buccaneers ended a five-game skid by downing the Jets 15-10. Fitzpatrick led two long scoring drives and Charles Sims scored on a six-yard run to put Tampa Bay ahead 15-3 with just over six minutes remaining. Josh McNown was 23 of 39 for 263 yards and one interception for the 4-5 Jets, who didn't score a TD until Robby Anderson's 38-yard grab in the final minute.
