Cam Newton threw for 237 yards and ran for a 14-yard touchdown that put the Panthers ahead 17-14 heading to the final quarter. The Falcons responded with Matt Bryant’s tying field goal and Ryan’s 1-yard sneak.

Steelers 17, Jaguars 13

PITTSBURGH — Rashard Mendenhall ran for a season-high 146 yards and a touchdown and the Steelers narrowly avoided a second-half collapse in a 17-13 over Jacksonville on Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 200 yards and a score for the Steelers (4-2), who won for the fourth time in five games.

Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for 96 yards for the Jaguars (1-5), who have dropped five straight to match the franchise’s longest losing streak in a decade.

Packers 24, Rams 3

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdowns, including a career-long 93-yarder to Jordy Nelson, and Green Bay whipped St. Louis to remain unbeaten.

Rodgers threw for 310 yards and also connected with James Jones and Donald Driver for touchdowns.

Sam Bradford was 28 of 44 for 321 yards with an interception for the Rams, and running back Steven Jackson had 18 carries for 96 yards.

Raiders 24, Browns 17

OAKLAND, Calif. — Jacoby Ford returned a kickoff 101 yards, and Kevin Boss caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from punter Shane Lechler on a fake field goal to lead Oakland past Cleveland.

The victory came with one major concern as starting quarterback Jason Campbell was knocked out late in the first half with an injured collarbone. There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury.

Bengals 27, Colts 17

CINCINNATI — Nate Clements blocked a late field goal try that would have tied the game, and Carlos Dunlap returned a fumble 35 yards for the clinching score to help Cincinnati keep Indianapolis winless. The Bengals matched their victory total from last season and ended a seven-game losing streak against the Colts.
