A week after committing seven turnovers while getting whipped by rival Baltimore, the Steelers worked with relentless efficiency against Seattle. Roethlisberger shook off a gimpy right knee to complete 22 of 30 passes, and the defense kept Seattle from taking an offensive snap on Pittsburgh’s side of the field until midway through the fourth quarter.

The Seahawks were shut out for the first time since their last visit to the Steel City in 2007.

Titans 26, Ravens 13

At Nashville, Tenn., Matt Hasselbeck threw for 358 yards and a touchdown, and Tennessee gave new coach Mike Munchak a big win in the home opener.

With the Ravens (1-1) focused on stopping Chris Johnson, Hasselbeck attacked through the air. Kenny Britt caught nine passes for 135 yards and a TD, while Nate Washington caught seven passes for 99 yards. Rob Bironas also kicked four field goals as Tennessee (1-1) held the ball for more than 35 minutes and outgained Baltimore 432-229 in total offense.

Lions 48, Chiefs 3

At Detroit, Matthew Stafford threw two of his four TD passes to Calvin Johnson and Detroit came away with its largest margin of victory in a regular season game.

The Lions broke the mark they set with a 44-0 win over expansion Jacksonville in 1995 and matched the record set in the 1957 NFL title game when they beat Cleveland 59-14.

The Lions (2-0) led Kansas City 20-3 at halftime and 41-3 early in the fourth quarter after turning two fumbles into TDs.

The Chiefs (0-2) lost more than the game when All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles was carted off the field midway through the first quarter with what appeared to be a serious left knee injury.

Texans 23, Dolphins 13

At Miami, Andre Johnson caught a 23-yard touchdown pass from Matt Schaub that helped Houston get off to a 2-0 start.

Miami’s sieve-like pass defense was no match for Johnson and Schaub, who threw for 230 yards and had a quarterback rating of 118.5. Johnson made seven catches for 93 yards.

The Dolphins committed two turnovers, had a 22-yard field-goal attempt blocked and missed a 34-yarder. Daniel Thomas rushed for 107 yards, but Chad Henne went 12 for 30 and was especially erratic in the red zone.

Miami is 0-2 for the fifth time in the past six years.
