Chiefs 26, Titans 17

Jamaal Charles scored a 1-yard touchdown with 6:23 left, and Kansas City rallied past Tennessee to keep up its perfect start. The Chiefs (5-0) are off to their best start since 2003, when they won their first nine games. This win came despite blowing a 13-0 halftime lead. The Titans (3-2) were out of synch in the first half with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting for Jake Locker, sidelined with his sprained right hip. He missed his first five passes and went three-and-out on his first five series before guiding Tennessee to 17 straight points in the second half. Charles put the Chiefs ahead to stay, and they intercepted Fitzpatrick twice in the final 6:14. Ryan Succop kicked four field goals, including a 48-yarder.

Packers 22, Lions 9

James Jones caught a long touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers, and Green Bay’s (2-2) defense contained the undermanned Lions (3-2) for a win at home. Mason Crosby kicked five field goals. The Packers’ offense struggled to get into the end zone until Rodgers found Jones on an 83-yard completion down the left sideline for a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter. It provided enough of a cushion for a defense that had the luxury of facing the Lions minus star receiver Calvin Johnson, out with a knee injury. The win extended the Packers’ streak over Detroit in Wisconsin to 23.
