Eagles 27, Giants 0
Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, LeSean McCoy had a season-high 149 yards rushing and Philadelphia beat visiting New York for the Eagles’ first shutout in 18 years. A rough night for the Giants became worse when wide receiver Victor Cruz tore the patellar tendon in his right knee while leaping for a pass on fourth down from the Eagles 3 in the third quarter. Cruz, a 2012 Pro Bowl pick, was crying and holding his hands to his face as he was carted off the field with an injury that’s expected to end his season.

Browns 31, Steelers 10
Brian Hoyer passed for 217 yards and pulled off a rarity for a Cleveland quarterback, leading the host Browns to rout over Ben Roethlisberger and rival Pittsburgh. Hoyer threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron and improved to 6-2 as Cleveland’s starter as the surprising Browns beat the Steelers for the third time in 23 games. Cleveland hadn’t beaten Pittsburgh so badly since a 51-0 victory in 1989.

Cards 30, Redskins 20
Carson Palmer returned from a five-week absence to throw two touchdown passes, and Arizona beat Washington in Glendale, Arizona, 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 bounce back from a 41-20 drubbing at Denver. Kirk Cousins was 24 for 38 for 354 yards, including a 64-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson for the Redskins, but threw three fourth-quarter interceptions.

Broncos 31, Jets 17
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 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Manning has 506 touchdown passes, and could tie or break Favre’s record next Sunday at home against San Francisco. The Jets 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.

Titans 16, Jaguars 14

The Jaguars scored with 37 seconds left when Blake Bortles found Clay Harbor for a 20-yard TD strike.

Bears 27, Falcons 13
Jay Cutler threw for 381 yards and a touchdown, Matt Forte ran for a couple of second-half scores, and Chicago picked up another road victory by beating Atlanta. Chicago 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 rallied from a 13-3 halftime deficit to tie it late in the third quarter, the Bears bounced back as Forte scored on runs of 6 and 9 yards. Atlanta was dealt its third consecutive loss after a promising 2-1 start to the season.
