Luck, Martin latest rookies to impress
FALCONS 19, COWBOYS 13
At Atlanta, Matt Bryant made four field goals and Michael Turner had a tiebreaking 3-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Turner had 20 carries for 102 yards and Matt Ryan had a season-high 342 yards passing for the Falcons (8-0).
Tony Romo completed all six passes for 78 yards, including a 21-yard scoring pass to Kevin Ogletree, on the Cowboys’ touchdown drive in the fourth period, but Atlanta used up 5 minutes, 4 seconds, leaving only 17 seconds left after Bryant’s 32-yard field goal.
The Falcons have never been undefeated halfway through a season.
BEARS 51, TITANS 20
At Nashville, Chicago’s defense was dominant once more.
The Bears (7-1) scored a franchise-record 28 points in the first quarter. They took control by forcing three turnovers in the first 13 minutes and turning them into 14 points. Urlacher went 46 yards for his score.
The Titans (3-6) had only Chris Johnson’s 80-yard run as a highlight.
TEXANS 21, BILLS 9
At Houston, Matt Schaub threw two touchdown passes, Arian Foster ran for 111 yards against Buffalo’s NFL-worst rushing defense, and Andre Johnson caught eight passes for 118 yards. Foster scored for the fifth straight game for Houston (7-1), which has the AFC’s best record.
Mario Williams had a sack and five tackles in his return to Reliant Stadium after signing with the Bills (3-5) in the offseason. The Texans made Williams the No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft and he’s still Houston’s career sacks leader (53).
“I was at least going to get one,” Williams said. “I couldn’t just come in here and not. I had to at least somehow, some way get one. I wish it would have been more. I definitely had some more opportunities.”
