CHICAGO — Brett Hundley passed for 212 yards and one touchdown, Nick Perry registered three sacks, and the Green Bay Packers held on for a 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Green Bay snapped a three-game losing streak and won for the first time since quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone. The Packers have won 14 of their past 16 games against Chicago.

Rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky completed 21 of 35 passes for 297 yards and one touchdown for the Bears. Chicago lost its second consecutive game and fell to 2-3 at home.

Steelers 20, Colts 17

INDIANAPOLIS — Chris Boswell’s 33-yard field goal as time expired rallied Pittsburgh past Indianapolis.

Ben Roethlisberger’s 32-yard pass to Antonio Brown to the Colts’ 18-yard line with 35 seconds left set up Boswell’s winning kick after he had missed a 37-yarder with 6:17 remaining that hit the right upright.

Pittsburgh rallied from a 17-3 third-quarter deficit, finishing the game on a 17-0 run.

Jaguars 20, Chargers 17

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Josh Lambo connected on a 30-yard field goal in overtime as Jacksonville stunned Los Angeles.

Lambo also kicked a 34-yard field goal with three seconds left in the fourth quarter to tie the game. He kicked for the Chargers the past two seasons before being cut at the end of the preseason.

The Chargers shut down Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette. The fourth overall pick in the draft was held to 33 yards on 17 carries.

Lions 38, Browns 24

DETROIT — Matthew Stafford threw three second-half touchdown passes and Detroit rallied for a victory over winless Cleveland.

Stafford completed 17 of 26 passes for 249 yards. Ameer Abdullah had 52 rushing yards on 11 carries and a touchdown for the Lions. Golden Tate caught six passes for 97 yards and a score, while cornerback Nevin Lawson returned a fumble 44 yards for a touchdown.

Cleveland rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer passed for 232 yards and a touchdown and also carried seven times for 57 yards.

Buccaneers 15, Jets 10

TAMPA, Fla. — Three field goals from Patrick Murray and a touchdown reception from running back Charles Sims helped Tampa Bay defeat New York.

The Buccaneers, who never trailed despite playing without injured quarterback Jameis Winston, broke a five-game losing streak.

The Jets, who reached Tampa Bay territory on only three of their 12 drives, were limited to 276 yards. Tampa Bay, which came into the game with an NFL-low eight sacks, had six on Sunday against the Jets.

Saints 47, Bills 10

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Mark Ingram II rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns to power New Orleans over Buffalo.

Rookie Alvin Kamara ran for 106 yards and a touchdown, rookie Trey Edmunds had a 41-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter and quarterback Drew Brees even ran in for a score as the Saints racked up 298 rushing yards in winning their seventh straight game. The Saints set a team record with six rushing touchdowns and had their third-highest rushing total in franchise history.

It was also the first time the Bills allowed six rushing touchdowns. It was the team’s worst home loss since a 56-10 defeat against the New England Patriots on Nov. 18, 2007, and the worst defensive performance under new head coach Sean McDermott.

Vikings 38, Redskins 30

LANDOVER, Md. — Case Keenum threw a career-high four touchdown passes, Adam Thielen had 166 receiving yards and Minnesota defeated Washington for their fifth straight win.

Keenum finished 21 of 29 for 304 yards. He threw two second-half interceptions. Thielen had eight catches, one for a touchdown as Keenum touchdown passes went to four different players.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins passed for one touchdown and ran for two more. He was 26 of 45 for 327 yards and one interception for the Redskins.

Titans 24, Bengals 20

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — DeMarco Murray stretched the ball just across the goal line on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Mariota with 36 seconds left as Tennessee rallied to edge Cincinnati.

Murray’s third score of the day capped a 12-play drive. Mariota finished 25 of 44 for 264 yards with an interception as the Titans won their fourth straight game.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton finished 20 of 35 for 265 yards, but lost a pair of fumbles in the second quarter, one leading to Murray’s second touchdown.
