NFL roundup: Lions storm back in fourth, stun Bears

David Montgomery scored on a 1-yard run with 29 seconds remaining and the Detroit Lions rallied from a 12-point, fourth-quarter deficit to pull out a 31-26 victory over the visiting Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Montgomery, a former Bears running back, rushed for 76 yards. Jared Goff, who threw a season-high three interceptions, engineered two fourth-quarter scoring drives and finished with 236 yards passing and two touchdowns for Detroit (8-2).

Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who missed the previous four games with a thumb injury, passed for 169 yards and a touchdown and also rushed for 104 yards. DJ Moore caught seven passes for 96 yards and a touchdown for Chicago (3-8).

With his team down 26-14, Goff hooked up with Jameson Williams for a 32-yard score with 2:59 remaining to cut the deficit to five. Detroit forced a three-and-out to set up the game-winning 73-yard drive. Goff completed a two-point conversion pass to Sam LaPorta following Montgomery’s TD.

Aidan Hutchinson forced Fields to fumble, and the ball was kicked out of the end zone, resulting in a safety with 22 seconds left.

Broncos 21, Vikings 20

Russell Wilson lobbed a go-ahead, 15-yard touchdown pass to Courtland Sutton with 1:03 to go, and Denver held on to beat visiting Minnesota.

Sutton leaped for a catch in the back left corner of the end zone, and it marked the first touchdown for Denver (5-5), which had settled for five field goals. Wilson completed 27 of 35 passes for 259 yards in the Broncos’ fourth consecutive victory.

Joshua Dobbs completed 20 of 32 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown and one interception for Minnesota (6-5). Dobbs also rushed for a touchdown for the Vikings, whose five-game winning streak ended.

Browns 13, Steelers 10

Thompson-Robinson, a fifth-round draft pick this past April out of UCLA, made his second career start with Deshaun Watson out for the season due to a shoulder fracture. The rookie went 24-of-43 passing for 165 yards and an interception for Cleveland (7-3).

Jaylen Warren had nine carries for 129 yards and a long touchdown for Pittsburgh (6-4). He also had 16 receiving yards, meaning Warren accounted for 145 of the Steelers’ 249 total yards of offense. Kenny Pickett completed 15 of 28 passes for just 106 yards.

Cowboys 33, Panthers 10

Dak Prescott threw for two touchdowns and Dallas benefited from two scores in a 10-second span early in the fourth quarter to defeat Carolina at Charlotte, N.C.

Tony Pollard ran for a touchdown and finished with 61 yards on 12 carries as the Cowboys (7-3) won for the fourth time in their past five games. Prescott finished 25 of 38 for 189 yards.

The Panthers (1-9) threatened to make it interesting, pulling to within 17-10, before Pollard’s 21-yard touchdown run with 13:58 left. On Carolina’s next snap, DaRon Bland intercepted Bryce Young and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown. Young was 16-of-29 passing for 123 yards with a touchdown.

Packers 23, Chargers 20

Jordan Love threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Romeo Doubs with 2:33 remaining, and host Green Bay held on for a win over Los Angeles.

Love completed 27 of 40 passes for a career-high 322 yards and two touchdowns for the Packers (4-6). Christian Watson caught Love’s other touchdown pass and Jayden Reed rushed for a score. Green Bay lost running backs Aaron Jones (knee) and Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) to injuries during the game.

Justin Herbert completed 21 of 36 passes for 260 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Chargers (4-6). Keenan Allen finished with 10 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. Los Angeles lost an important starter when pass rusher Joey Bosa hobbled off the field without putting weight on his right leg.

Texans 21, Cardinals 16

Rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud survived his first career multi-interception game and Houston withstood a ragged second half to beat visiting Arizona.

Stroud passed for 336 yards and two touchdowns, but two of his interceptions were in the red zone. Those turnovers helped offset strong efforts from rookie receiver Tank Dell, who had eight catches for 149 yards and a touchdown, and running back Devin Singletary, who rushed for 112 yards and a score.

After closing to within five points on a Kyler Murray 1-yard TD run with 2:52 left in the third quarter, the Cardinals (2-9) could not get over the hump, finishing 3-for-10 on third downs and 1-for-4 on fourth downs. Murray passed for 214 yards and rushed for 51 in his second start of the season.

Jaguars 34, Titans 14

Trevor Lawrence was 24-of-32 passing for 262 yards and two touchdowns to go with two rushing scores as host Jacksonville beat Tennessee.

Calvin Ridley caught seven passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns for the Jaguars (7-3), who have won six of their past seven games.

Will Levis went 13-of-17 passing for 158 yards and two touchdowns in defeat for the Titans (3-7), who have lost three straight games overall and all six of their road contests.

Dolphins 20, Raiders 13

Tua Tagovailoa passed for 325 yards and two touchdowns, Jalen Ramsey intercepted two passes and Miami earned a victory over Las Vegas at Miami Gardens, Fla.

Tyreek Hill had another huge outing with 10 receptions for 146 yards and one touchdown for the Dolphins (7-3). Hill entered the day as the NFL leader in receiving yards (1,076) and touchdown catches (eight). Tagovailoa completed 28 of 39 passes and was intercepted once.

Aidan O’Connell completed 24 of 41 passes for 271 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions for the Raiders (5-6). Davante Adams caught seven passes for 82 yards and a touchdown for Las Vegas, which is 2-1 under interim coach Antonio Pierce.

Giants 31, Commanders 19

Tommy DeVito threw three touchdown passes and the New York defense forced six turnovers in a victory over Washington in Landover, Md.

With Washington driving late in a bid for a potential game-winning touchdown, Isaiah Simmons picked off a fluttering pass by Sam Howell and ran 54 yards for a game-clinching touchdown with 16 seconds left. Howell completed 31 of 45 passes for 255 yards and a touchdown.

Saquon Barkley caught two of the touchdown passes from DeVito and rushed 14 times for 83 yards as the Giants (3-8) won for just the second time in their past nine games, with both wins against the Commanders (4-7). In his second career start, DeVito weathered nine sacks to complete 18 of 26 passes for 246 yards without an interception.

49ers 27, Buccaneers 14

Brock Purdy threw for three touchdowns and Brandon Aiyuk had a career-high 156 yards receiving and a score to fuel San Francisco to a victory over Tampa Bay in Santa Clara, Calif.

Purdy completed 21 of 25 passes for 333 yards and Christian McCaffrey found the end zone again after seeing his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown (including playoffs) come to an end at 17 last week. Tight end George Kittle had eight catches for 89 yards and a touchdown for the 49ers (7-3).

Tampa Bay’s Baker Mayfield completed 29 of 45 passes for 246 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Mike Evans had a 1-yard touchdown reception and Rachaad White added a 1-yard rushing TD for the Buccaneers (4-6), who have lost five of their past six games.

Bills 32, Jets 6

Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes and Buffalo avenged a Week 1 loss to New York with a victory in Orchard Park. N.Y.

Playing his first game under new offensive coordinator Joe Brady, who replaced the fired Ken Dorsey on Tuesday, Allen completed 20 of 32 passes for 275 yards with an interception. Buffalo (6-5) stayed 1 1/2 games behind AFC East leader Miami.

New York quarterback Zach Wilson was 7 of 15 for 81 yards with a touchdown and an interception before he was benched for backup Tim Boyle late in the third quarter. Boyle couldn’t generate a spark, either, going 7 of 14 for 33 yards with an interception for the Jets (4-6).

Rams 17, Seahawks 16

Lucas Havrisik kicked a 22-yard field goal with 1:31 remaining as Los Angeles rallied to defeat Seattle in Inglewood, Calif.

Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith returned from an injury to guide Seattle (6-4) into field-goal range in the final seconds, but Jason Myers’ 55-yard attempt missed just right. Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III (oblique) and Rams receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) both left with injuries in the first half and didn’t return.

Smith was 22-of-34 passing for 233 yards and a touchdown. Matthew Stafford was 17-of-31 passing for 190 yards and a touchdown for the Rams (4-6), who snapped a three-game losing streak. Royce Freeman rushed 17 times for 73 yards.
