  3. Cowboys flex their muscles

    Best of the late games

    Dak Prescott finished with a perfect passer rating as he threw four touchdowns to show the Dallas Cowboys mean business this season by rolling over the New York Giants, who actually opened the scoring in Texas before being outclassed. It was an impressive debut for the Cowboys’ young offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who really got his team rolling.

    Saquon Barkley had 120 yards for the Giants as their main bright spark, with Eli Manning being replaced by rookie Daniel Jones late on even though the two-time Super Bowl winner was hardly at fault for the wide-margin defeat. Ezekiel Elliott was eased back in after only arriving back for practice this week, but still managed a touchdown.

    The LA Chargers had Austin Ekeler to thank for their overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts as he capped off a monster game with his third touchdown to seal the win after a 154-yard performance. The Chargers had built up a 24-9 lead but the Colts came storming back led by QB Jacoby Brissett – who’s now the starter following Andrew Luck’s retirement.

    Brissett took his team 80 yards in 16 plays and tagged on a two-point conversion to send the game to overtime, but the defence had no answer to Ekeler’s elusive running as he danced into the end zone after a 75-yard game-winning drive by Philip Rivers.

  4. Murray makes his mark in tie

    Late games round-up

    Kyler Murray had an eventful debut as the number one pick of the 2019 draft led the Arizona Cardinals on a fantastic fightback to force overtime and ultimately a tie with the Detroit Lions - despite trailing by 18 points with just over 11 minutes left.

    Murray looked out of his depth early on as Matt Stafford piled up three touchdowns for the Lions, but the Arizona QB found his form late on when marching 60 yards before hitting Larry Fitzgerald for a touchdown and Christian Kirk for a two-point conversion. Both teams scored field goals in overtime but couldn't force the win.

    The Seattle Seahawks got their expected home win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but they had to survive an Andy Dalton and John Ross onslaught to do so by just a single point. Bengals QB Dalton had a career day with 418 yards while Ross had 158 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

    Jimmy Garoppolo enjoyed a winning return from injury with the San Francisco 49ers, but the QB had his defence to thank as they scored two touchdowns to jump on Jameis Winston’s mistakes in their victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winston threw three interceptions and saw two of them turned into pick sixes by Richard Sherman and Ahkello Witherspoon.

  5. Ravens and Chiefs QBs shine

    Best of the early games

    Lamar Jackson was meant to be the run-first quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens, but he used his arm to slice the Miami Dolphins defence with 324 yards and five touchdown passes – two of those going to Marquise 'Hollywood” Brown, who lived up to his nickname with two electrifying bursts for his scores.

    Records tumbled for Florida native Jackson and the Ravens, as they broke team records for both points and yards in a game, with 59 and 643 respectively. On this showing it’s going to be a long season for Miami, who are already favourites for the first pick in next year’s draft.

    Kansas City Chiefs' reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes also impressed as he battled through some rough treatment from the Jacksonville Jaguars defence to throw for 358 yards and three touchdowns – all to receiver Sammy Watkins, who had a career day with 198 receiving yards and that hat-trick.

    In a hard-hitting contest, the Jags had Myles Jack ejected and lost quarterback Nick Foles to a broken collarbone. The Chiefs also lost Tyreek Hill to a shoulder injury while Mahomes himself needed his ankle taping in some worrying moments for the star QB.

  6. Hyped-up Browns well beaten

    Early games round-up

    The hype train in Cleveland didn’t even get going as the Tennessee Titans spoiled the Browns’ big day with an emphatic victory, capitalising on QB Baker Mayfield’s three interceptions in the final 15 minutes to seal an impressive road win – confirming their status as AFC dark horses.

    Beaten Super Bowl side the Los Angeles Rams survived a stern examination in Carolina where running back Christian McCaffrey had 209 total yards and two touchdowns for the Panthers, who just came up short. Todd Gurley did not have a full workload and fellow running back Malcolm Brown grabbed two touchdowns for the NFC champions.

    DeSean Jackson was back with a bang in Philadelphia with two 50-yard touchdown catches that showed he’s by no means slowing down at 32, while Carson Wentz looked back somewhere near his best as the Eagles erased a 17-point half-time deficit to beat the Washington Redskins.

    The Buffalo Bills also produced a comeback as they bagged a 17-16 victory at the New York Jets despite trailing 16-0 at the break after QB Josh Allen’s four turnovers - Kaare Vedvik’s missed extra point proving crucial. The Minnesota Vikings looked strong at home as they dominated the Atlanta Falcons.

  7. Full-time

    Cardinals 27-27 Lions

    We're out of time in Arizona. The game finishes in a tie but it must feel like a win for the Cardinals having come back from 24-6 down to force overtime.

  8. Post update

    Cardinals 27-27 Lions

    With 11 seconds left, a hopeful throw by Lions quarterback Matt Stafford is spilled by Jermaine Brock.

    Had he made that interception it could have given the Cardinals the game. It was within field-goal range.

  9. Post update

    Cardinals 27-27 Lions

    The Detroit Lions make first down with a pass to Danny Amendola but the veteran comes back inside rather than going out of bounds.

    The Lions have to burn a time-out to stop the clock.

  10. Post update

    Cardinals 27-27 Lions

    Kyler Murray makes one first down but then the Arizona Cardinals have to punt.

    The Detroit Lions have it with a minute left, starting from their five.

  11. Two-minute warning

    Cardinals 27-27 Lions

    Just to crank up the pressure, we've just reached the two-minute warning in overtime.

    Early test here of how rookie quarterback Kyler Murray can handle the big moments.

  12. Field goal

    Cardinals 27-27 Lions

    Arizona Cardinals cornerback Tramaine Brock does brilliantly to cover Kenny Golladay in the end zone and stop him holding on to Matt Stafford's pass.

    Matt Prater must make the field goal...and he does, from 33 yards, to tie the game once more.

    Now it's next score wins.

  13. Post update

    Cardinals 27-24 Lions

    Marvin Jones makes two big catches for the Detroit Lions, moving them up to the Cardinals' 18.

  14. Field goal

    Cardinals 27-24 Lions

    Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray is unable to find the touchdown that will win the game but the Cardinals settle for a 28-yard field goal from Zane Gonzalez.

    It's the first time they've led in the whole game, but it also means the Detroit Lions now have a possession and a chance to win it themselves.

  15. Post update

    Cardinals 24-24 Lions

    The Arizona Cardinals get the first possession in overtime and Larry Fitzgerald puts them within range, diving to make a fine 45-yard catch, moving to 114 receiving yards for the game.

    Larry Fitzgerald
  16. Overtime

    Cardinals 24-24 Lions

    We're going to overtime again as the Cardinals come back from nowhere to erase an 18-point deficit and tie the game up.

  17. Perfect Prescott

    Cowboys 35-17 Giants

    Dak Prescott became the first quarterback in Dallas Cowboys history to have a perfect 158.3 passer rating - and only the 30th in the NFL.

    Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger and the LA Rams' falseJared Goff both had games with perfect passer ratings last season.

  18. From the booth to the end zone

    Witten back with a TD

    Jason Witten hit the ground running as he came out of retirement, and out of the TV studio, to catch a touchdown pass for the Dallas Cowboys - just like the good old days.

    Cardinals 24-24 Lions

    Kyler Murray shows his worth by leading a game-tying drive with a touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald and the two-point conversion to Christian Kirk. All square.
