D4 B www.phill3r.com THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER N F L Monday, September 26, 2011 Brady's turnovers kill Pats Buffalo Bills 34, Patriots 31 New England First quarter 14 7 3 7 0 10 7 17 NE-Welker 14 sass from Brady (Go ASSOCIATED PRESS ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Tom Brady's turnovers led to the end of New England's eight-year winning streak over the Buffalo Bills. Despite setting a league record for yards passing over a three-game stretch, Brady matched a career worst with four interceptions, and the Patriots committed eight penalties in a 34-31 loss to the Bills. That snapped New England's 15-game winning streak over its AFC East rival dating back to 2003. Brady threw interceptions on consecutive plays bridging the end of the second quarter and the start of the third, and his final interception was returned 27 yards for a touchdown by Buffalo's Drayton Florence with 10 minutes, 22 seconds left. That came 14 seconds after Buffalo's Fred Jackson tied the game at 24 with a 1-yard plunge. "We turned the ball over four times," New England coach Bill Belichick said. "You don't win many games that way." "They're a good coverage team, and they made some good plays in the passing game," said Brady, who went 30 of 45 for 386 yards and four scores. "They took advantage of some opportunities that they got." Saints 40, Texans 33 NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees passed for 370 yards and three touchdowns and twice led New Orleans back from fourth-quarter deficits. Mark Ingram's first career touchdown on a 13-yard run gave the Saints (2-1) the lead for good with less than three minutes left. Houston fell to 2-1 despite 373 yards passing and three TDs by Matt Schaub. Houston New Orleans 10 6 3 14 - 33 0 10 7 23 - 40 First quarter HouDaniels 14 pass from Schaub (Rackers kick), 10:13.

The Bills intercepted four of Patriots QB Tom Brady's passes in a 34-31 win. Wes Welker had 16 catches for a franchise-record 217 yards and two scores, but focused more on his team's inability to hang onto the football than his own production. "Pretty much it detracts everything," he said. "We lost the game. What should be a fun day of breaking records and doing all those things, it's totally the opposite." Panthers 167 Jaguars 10 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton didn't pass for a ton of yards, he simply found Greg Olsen over the middle for a 16-yard touchdown with 4:20 left to lift Carolina (1-2). Newton, the No. 1 overall draft pick, also found Olsen for the ensuing two-point conversion, Newton set an NFL record with 854 yards passing in the first two games of his career to open the season. He settled for 158 yards this time in a mat chup against Jaguars' rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert (139 yards and a TD). Jacksonville is 1-2.

The loss surely will bring more heat on embattled Dolphins coach Tony Sparano. McCoy was 9 of 13 for all 80 yards on Cleveland's final drive, making up for an otherwise lackluster performance. On third and 5, McCoy pump faked before lofting a perfect pass to the right corner over rookie cornerback Jimmy Wilson to a leaping Massaquoi.

After watching his team squander a 21-point first-half lead, Brady was poised for yet another fourth-quarter comeback. Jackson appeared to score on a 39-yard crossing route over the middle that would have given the Bills the lead with 1:43 left. The officials initially ruled Jackson got into the end zone before overturning the call on Chargers 20, Chiefs 17 SAN DIEGO Eric Weddle intercepted Matt Cassel at midfield with 55 seconds left to preserve San Diego's victory over winless Kansas City. The Chiefs (0-3) had gotten the ball back at their 33 with 1 minute, 26 seconds left after Philip Rivers was stuffed on fourth and 1 at Kansas City's 34. Cassel threw for 24 yards to Leonard Pope, but on the next play, under pressure and backpedaling, he threw the ball right to the blitzing Weddle. Ryan Mathews scored twice, and the Chargers improved to 2-1 for the second time in coach Nory Turner's five seasons. Second quarter SD-Mathews 2 run (Novak kick), 12:45. SD-FG Novak 35, :28.

LOUIS Rookie Torrey Smith's first three career catches went for touchdowns totaling 133 yards in the first quarter, sparking a franchise record-setting day on offense by Baltimore. The Ravens (2-1) got back on their game after a loss at Tennessee last week. The 406-yard first half that fueled a 27-point cushion and the game total of 553 yards were both bests for the franchise that moved from Cleveland in 1996. They also sacked Sam Bradford five times.

In this young season, it is becoming abundantly clear that these are not the same old Lions. Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the second half to help Detroit get to overtime, and Jason Hanson kicked a 32-yard field goal to finish off a 26-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Calvin Johnson had seven catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns for the Lions, who are 3-0 for the first time since 1980. They won in the Metrodome for the first time since 1997, snapping a 13-game skid. Adrian Peterson rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown, but only 5 of those yards came in the second half as the Vikings (0-3) gave away a double-digit halftime lead for the third week in a row.

The normally unflappable Freeman did a little bird dance in celebration of his quarterback sneak that snapped a 3-3 tie in the second quarter, and the Bucs (2-1) went on to end a five-game losing streak to their NFC South rivals. Tampa Bay's defense forced two first-half fumbles with sacks. Ronde Barber intercepted a pass to stop an Atlanta (1-2) threat just before halftime.

With blitzing Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway right in his face, Stafford heaved a pass off his back foot in Johnson's direction. The 6-foot-5 receiver made a brilliant, 40-yard catch with Cedric Griffin all over him, and Hanson calmly drilled the winning field goal. Seattle bulls past Arizona amid boos ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE Tarvaris Jackson put Seattle in the lead with a bulldozing, 11-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and Kam Chancellor sealed the victory with an interception of Kevin Kolb with a minute 1 minute, 4 seconds left in the Seahawks' 13-10 win over Arizona on Sunday. Jackson went through a day when Seattle's fickle fans alternated among cheers, boos and chants for backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst. They were all screaming when Jackson bullied his way in for the go-ahead TD run in the third quarter, yet were back to booing Jackson minutes later when the Seahawks (1-2) bumbled a third-down snap and nearly fumbled deep in their own end. Jackson's play and numbers weren't spectacular. He was 18 of 31 for 171 yards. But his only turnover came on a desperation throw at the end of the first half. Sidney Rice, making his Seattle debut, had eight catches for 109 yards after missing the first two games with an injured shoulder. Marshawn Lynch finished with 73 yards on 19 carries. Kolb finished 25 of 39 for 252 yards for Arizona (1-2) and completed a highlight reel touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald. But Kolb was intercepted twice, the last when Chancellor stepped in front of a pass intended for Todd Heap at the Seattle 25 with 64 seconds left. After Fitzgerald's TD catch midway through the second quarter, he had just one other reception and was shut out in the second half. Arizona played without starting running back Beanie Wells and backup La Rod Stephens-Howling. Seahawks 13, Cardinals 10 Arizona 0 10 0 0 10 Seattle 3 3 7 0 13 First quarter Sea-FG Hauschka 30, 2:55.
