Cards, Eagles unbeaten while Saints sinking at 0-2
STEELERS 27, JETS 10
Roethlisberger completed 24 of 31 passes. He hit Heath Miller for a 1-yard score to give the Steelers (1-1) the lead late in the first half, then found Mike Wallace for a 37-yard strike early in the third quarter to break the game open and avoid Pittsburgh’s first 0-2 start in a decade.
Mark Sanchez passed for 138 yards and a touchdown, but the Jets (1-1) hardly resembled the offensive juggernaut that piled up points in a 48-28 opening-week blowout win over Buffalo.
RAMS 31, REDSKINS 28
At St. Louis, Sam Bradford threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns and Danny Amendola caught 15 passes for 160 yards in rallying the Rams (1-1).
The Rams made their comeback after running back Steven Jackson left the game after drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the second quarter. Later, coach Jeff Fisher said Jackson left because of a groin injury.
Griffin led the Redskins (1-1) to a 21-6 lead, but the Rams came back thanks to the pass-catching of Amendola, who tied the NFL record with 12 first-half receptions.
SEAHAWKS 27, COWBOYS 7
At Seattle, Marshawn Lynch ran for 122 yards and a 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter and the Seahawks’ special teams came up with two huge first-quarter plays that led to 10 points.
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 and Jeron Johnson returned it for a touchdown to give Seattle (1-1) a 10-0 lead in less than 5 minutes against the Cowboys (1-1).
