Patriots lose nail-biter as kick sails wide
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes, including a 49-yarder to Stevie Johnson, and Leodis McKelvin scored on an 88-yard punt return - the second longest in team history - in the Bills’ home opener. Buffalo’s high-priced defense had five sacks and forced three turnovers as the Bills bounced back from a dreadful season-opening 48-28 loss at the New York Jets last week.
Texans 27, Jaguars 7
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Arian Foster ran for 110 yards and a touchdown, Ben Tate added 74 yards and two scores and the Texans dominated from the opening kickoff in a 27-7 win at Jacksonville on Sunday.
The Texans improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season by winning their fourth in a row against the AFC South rival Jaguars, who started 0-2 for the third time in the last five years.
Jacksonville, which has never had a winning record after dropping its first two games, was far from competitive in the latest meeting.
The Texans gained 242 yards in the first half while building a 17-0 lead. Foster ran for 69 yards and a score. Tate added 49 and a touchdown. Matt Schaub, using mostly short throws, picked apart Jacksonville’s defense.
The Jaguars were even worse on offense, finishing with a franchise-low 117 yards.
Seahawks 27, Cowboys 7
SEATTLE — Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks took control of the clock and the scoreboard in the second half, shutting down Tony Romo and defeating the Cowboys 27-7 on Sunday.
Lynch ran for 122 yards and a 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter and Seattle’s special teams came up with two huge first-quarter plays.
Michael Robinson forced Felix Jones to fumble on the opening kickoff that led to a short field goal, and Malcolm Smith blocked Chris Jones’ punt which Jeron Johnson returned for a touchdown to give Seattle (1-1) a 10-0 lead in less than 5 minutes.
Rookie Russell Wilson threw for 151 yards in his first NFL victory.
