Cardinals 28, Cowboys 17

Carson Palmer had three touchdown passes after an early interception Dallas returned for a score, and the Cowboys offense struggled without the injured Tony Romo in a loss to Arizona in Arlington, Texas. The Cardinals, who have sole possession of the best record in the NFC for the first time since 1974, won their fourth straight. Brandon Weeden threw two interceptions as the Cowboys dropped their second straight after a six-game winning streak. NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray’s record streak of eight straight 100-yard games to start the season for Dallas ended against a defense that didn’t allow a back over the century mark for the 18th consecutive time.

Dolphins 37, Chargers 0

Ryan Tannehill threw for 288 yards and three scores, and Miami forced four turnovers to rout San Diego in Miami Gardens, Florida. The Dolphins earned their third consecutive victory. The Chargers lost their third game in a row and remain winless in South Florida since January 1982. Every Miami victory this season has been by double digits, and this was the most lopsided yet. San Diego was shut out for the first time since 1999, and the Dolphins earned their first shutout since 2006.

Steelers 43, Ravens 23

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 340 yards and six scores to set an NFL record for most touchdown passes in consecutive games, leading Pittsburgh to a victory over visiting Baltimore. A week after passing for a franchise-record six touchdowns against Indianapolis, Roethlisberger duplicated the feat as the Steelers earned their third consecutive win. Roethlisberger’s 12 touchdown passes over the last two games broke the mark of 11 set by Tom Flores for Oakland in 1963 and matched by New England’s Tom Brady in 2007.

Eagles 31, Texans 21

Mark Sanchez replaced the injured Nick Foles and threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns to lead visiting Philadelphia over Houston.

The Eagles led by three when Jeremy Maclin grabbed a low throw from Sanchez for an 8-yard touchdown to make it 31-21 with about 4 minutes remaining. Maclin finished with two touchdowns and 158 yards receiving and LeSean McCoy had 117 yards rushing.
