Week 6 is upon us as the season is quickly rolling along. Here's a look at what's happened so far and what's still ahead.
Bills 45, 49ers 16
49ers QB Colin Kaepernick made his first start of the season, but he fizzled after a strong first half, and Bills running back LeSean McCoy took over. After leaving the game with a leg injury late in the first half, McCoy returned and finished the game with 19 carries for 140 yards and three touchdowns.
Redskins 27, Eagles 20
Washington’s Matt Jones ran for a season-high 135 yards on 16 carries and one touchdown, and the Redskins won their fourth straight game after an 0-2 start.
Titans 28, Browns 26
Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw for 284 yards and three TDs and ran seven times for 64 yards as the Titans held off a late comeback by the winless Browns.
Giants 27, Ravens 23
Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants got their season back on track after three straight losses. Beckham had eight catches for 222 yards and two touchdowns as the Giants overcame a 10-0 first-quarter deficit. Eli Manning threw for 403 yards.
Jaguars 17, Bears 16
Blake Bortles threw for 271 yards, and his 51-yard TD pass to Arrelious Benn with 2:49 left in the game completed Jacksonville’s comeback from a 13-0 deficit.
Lions 31, Rams 28
Golden Tate had eight catches for 165 yards and a TD as the Lions won a back-and-forth shootout.
Dolphins 30, Steelers 15
Ben Roethlisberger missed a first-half series with a left knee injury and completed just 19 of 34 passes for 189 yards and one TD with two interceptions as the Steelers took a surprising loss.
Patriots 35, Bengals 17
Tom Brady had his second straight monster game since returning from a four-game suspension. He completed 29 of 35 passes for 376 yards and three TDs, and tight end Rob Gronkowski caught seven of those passes for 162 yards and a TD.
Saints 41, Panthers 38
Wil Lutz kicked a 52-yard field goal with 11 seconds left to break a 38-38 tie and give the Saints a win. The Panthers dropped to 1-5 despite the return of quarterback Cam Newton, who missed the previous game with a concussion.
Chiefs 26, Raiders 10
Alex Smith was near perfect, completing 19 of 22 passes for 224 yards, as the Chiefs got back into the AFC West race. Kansas City moved to 3-2, just a half-game behind the Raiders and Broncos, who are both 4-2.
Cowboys 30, Packers 16
Ezekiel Elliott ran for a career-high 157 yards on 28 carries in a game Dallas controlled from start to finish. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott finally threw his first career interception, but he still outplayed Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who again was hindered by misfires and fumbles.
Seahawks 26, Falcons 24
Steven Hauschka’s 44-yard field goal with 2:02 left was the difference in a game the Seahawks almost let slip away after grabbing a 17-3 halftime lead.
Texans 26, Colts 23 (OT)
Brock Osweiler heated up in the fourth quarter, helping the Texans score 14 points in the fourth to rally past the Colts in a Sunday night thriller. Lamar Miller had 148 rushing yards for Houston, which trailed 23-9 late in the fourth.

New York Jets at Arizona Cardinals, Monday 8:30 p.m. ESPN
Key matchup: Brandon Marshall vs. Patrick Peterson
Peterson is playing as well, if not better than any cornerback in football. Brandon Marshall has recovered from his knee injury suffered a few weeks ago, but his quarterback isn’t doing him any favors in the passing game. Marshall will get his targets, but with Ryan Fitzpatrick’s inaccuracy, expect Peterson to nab a pick.
Fun fact: The Jets have won each of the last six games against the Cardinals going all the way back to 1978.
