It was business as usual for Matt Ryan. For the third straight week, Ryan led the Falcons to a go-ahead scoring drive and Atlanta is 6-0 for the first time in franchise history. Matt Bryant kicked a 55-yard field goal with one second remaining and the Falcons edged the Oakland Raiders, 23-20, on Sunday. Ryan, who shook off three first-half interceptions, got the ball at his own 20-yard line with 40 seconds left and the game tied at 20-20 following Darren McFadden's 2-yard TD run. He found Jacquizz Rodgers for gains of seven and nine yards before finding Harry Douglas for a short 4-yard pickup to put the ball at the Falcons' 40-yard line with 26 ticks on the clock. Facing a 3rd-and-6 two plays later, Ryan fired a 10-yard completion to Gonzalez to move the chains. With a timeout in hand and 12 seconds to play, Ryan hit Gonzalez for a 13-yard reception over the middle, which set up Bryant's boot. Bryant missed his first field goal of the season earlier on in the contest, but atoned for it by sneaking his field-goal attempt just inside the left upright.

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Ray Rice finished with 63 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 16 carries, and the Baltimore Ravens escaped with a 31-29 decision over the Dallas Cowboys in a Week 6 matchup.

Tony Romo passed for 261 yards and two touchdowns to Dez Bryant on 25-of-36 efficiency but was intercepted once for the Cowboys (2-3), who came off a bye to drop their second in a row.
Final Score: Cleveland 34, Cincinnati 24
Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Brandon Weeden threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns and the Cleveland defense found the end zone twice, leading the Browns to their first win of the season Sunday in a 34-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Montario Hardesty had 56 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, and Josh Gordon caught three balls for 99 yards and a score for Cleveland (1-5).

Tight end Jermaine Gresham caught three balls for 68 yards and a touchdown and BenJarvus Green-Ellis carried 16 times for 62 yards for the Bengals (3-3) in defeat.
Final Score: Miami 17, St. Louis 14
Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Rookie Ryan Tannehill had two touchdown passes, and the Miami Dolphins withstood a late St. Louis rally to emerge with a 17-14 win over the Rams on Sunday. The visiting Rams trimmed Miami's lead to three when quarterback Sam Bradford stretched the ball across the goal line and completed a pass to Steven Jackson for the 2-point conversion with 8:30 remaining in the fourth quarter. With the help of a fake punt, the Dolphins chewed up a significant portion of the clock. St. Louis got the ball back at its own 3-yard line with 1:41 to play and a nifty one-handed grab by Brandon Gibson set the Rams up near midfield. On 3rd-and-4 from the Miami 45, Olivier Vernon sacked Bradford for a 3-yard loss, and the Dolphins (3-3) prevailed when Greg Zuerlein missed a 66-yard field goal. Tannehill completed 21-of-29 throws for 185 yards in Miami's second straight win. Bradford had 315 yards on 26-of-39 passing for St. Louis (3-3).
Final Score: NY Jets 35, Indianapolis 9
East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - It took six games to materialize, but ground-and-pound football finally returned for the New York Jets. As part of a 252-yard rushing attack, Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 161 yards and three touchdowns behind the Jets' best defensive effort of the season, dropping the Indianapolis Colts, 35-9, at MetLife Stadium. New York's defense generated four turnovers and didn't allow a touchdown for the first time all season. With his starting job on the line, quarterback Mark Sanchez passed for 82 yards and two touchdowns on 11-of-18 efficiency, the first time he has completed over fifty percent of his passes since Week 1. Stephen Hill and Jason Hill each caught touchdown passes for New York (3-3), which was able to stave off its first three-game losing streak at home since 2009. Andrew Luck, who led an inspired Indianapolis team to a 30-27 comeback win over Green Bay last week, struggled on Sunday and could not produce a similar result. He completed 22-of-44 passes for 280 yards and threw two interceptions for the Colts (2-3), who lost their second road game of the season in blowout fashion.
Final Score: Detroit 26, Philadelphia 23 (OT)
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Jason Hanson tied the game in regulation and won it in overtime as the Detroit Lions took a 26-23 win over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Hanson went 4-for-4 and also added two extra points to move past John Carney into third place on the NFL's all-time scoring list. Matthew Stafford was off for much of the game, but he led the team on three scoring drives in the fourth quarter and the game-winner in overtime. He finished the game 22-for-45 with 311 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Lions (2-3), who won for the first time since opening the season with a win over St. Louis. Stafford also ran in a score. Calvin Johnson was also quiet for much of the game, but he finished the contest with six catches for 135 yards while Nate Burleson caught a score for Detroit, which snapped a six-game losing streak to Philadelphia. Michael Vick was picked off twice and lost his NFL-high sixth fumble of the season. He did throw two touchdown passes and finished the game 28-for-46 with 311 yards. He also had a team-high 59 yards on nine carries, but it wasn't enough to stop the Eagles (3-3) from losing their second straight game going into their bye week.
Final Score: Tampa Bay 38, Kansas City 10
Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Josh Freeman completed 15-of-26 passes for 328 yards and three touchdowns as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stomped the Kansas City Chiefs, 38-10, on Sunday. Mike Williams had four catches for 113 yards and a touchdown and Vincent Jackson hauled in four balls for 66 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Buccaneers (2-3), who recovered from a 24-22 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 4 and snapped a three-game losing streak coming off a bye week. Brady Quinn's first start in nearly three years was anything but memorable, as he completed just 22-of-38 passes for 180 yards and two interceptions. Quinn started in place of Matt Cassel, who sat out while recovering from a concussion suffered in last week's 9-6 loss to Baltimore. Jamaal Charles, who rushed for 461 yards over his last three games, was limited to just 40 yards on 12 carries for the Chiefs (1-5), who are off to their worst start since 2009.
Final Score: Buffalo 19, Arizona 16 (OT)
Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) - Rian Lindell hit a 25-yard field goal in overtime as the Buffalo Bills took a 19-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Buffalo started the extra session with the ball, but had to punt after stalling near midfield. The Bills, though, got a turnover when John Skelton, who took over for an injured Kevin Kolb late in the fourth quarter, was picked off by Jairus Byrd and he took it 29 yards down to the 6- yard line. After Ryan Fitzpatrick ran the ball to center it, Lindell calmly booted it through the uprights for the win. C.J. Spiller had 12 carries for 88 yards and a score while Fred Jackson added 16 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown for the Bills (3-3), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Fitzpatrick was a pedestrian 18-for-32 with 153 yards as Buffalo is tied for the top spot in the AFC East as all four teams in that division have a 3-3 record.
Final Score: Seattle 24, New England 23
Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Russell Wilson threw for a career-best 293 yards, and fired the game-winning touchdown to Sidney Rice with just over one minute left in regulation, sending the Seattle Seahawks over the New England Patriots, 24-23, in a Week 6 matchup. Wilson ended 16-of-27 with three scores for the Seahawks (4-2), who beat their Sunday foes for the first time since 1993 and have taken four of their last five since a season-opening loss at Arizona. Rice totaled 81 yards on three receptions, as Marshawn Lynch was held to 41 yards on 15 carries as Seattle pulled into a three-way tie atop the NFC West standings after wins by San Francisco and the Cardinals. Tom Brady threw the football a career-high 58 times, completing 36 for 395 yards, a pair of touchdowns with two interceptions for the Patriots (3-3), whose two-game win streak was halted. Wes Welker led all receivers with 138 yards and a TD on 10 catches, while Aaron Hernandez also posted a touchdown reception in defeat.
Final Score: NY Giants 26, San Francisco 3
San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - No overtime was needed this time around. Antrel Rolle intercepted two passes and Prince Amukamara added another in the New York Giants' 26-3 thumping of the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game. Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 116 yards and a score on 27 carries for the Giants (4-2), whose 20-17 overtime win in last season's NFC Championship Game propelled them to their second title in five seasons. It was the first 100-plus yard rusher allowed by the 49ers defense in 23 games. Eli Manning was 15-of-28 for 193 yards and a touchdown, Victor Cruz caught six passes for 58 yards and a touchdown and the returning Hakeem Nicks hauled in three passes for 44 yards in the victory. Manning fired eight straight completions for 142 yards at one point during the opening half.
Final Score: Washington 38, Minnesota 26
Landover, MD (Sports Network) - Robert Griffin III showed no ill effects of a concussion as he rushed for 138 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries and threw for one more, leading the Washington Redskins to a 38-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field. Griffin, who suffered the head injury in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5, completed 17-of-22 passes for 182 yards as the Redskins (3-3) snapped an eight-game home losing streak. Griffin, the No.2 overall draft selection in 2012 and reigning Heisman Trophy winner, left last week's game in the third quarter, but was listed as questionable after participating fully in practice on Friday. Alfred Morris ran for 47 yards and a score on 16 carries and Darrel Young caught a touchdown pass in the triumph. Christian Ponder threw for 352 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions on 35-of-52 passing, and Percy Harvin had a big day through the air, catching 11 balls for 133 yards for the Vikings (4-2), who saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.
Final Score: Green Bay 42, Houston 24
Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Aaron Rodgers tied a franchise record with six touchdown passes and Green Bay looked like the Packers of old with a 42-24 rout of the previously unbeaten Houston Texans on Sunday night. Rodgers completed 24-of-37 passes for 338 yards for the Packers (3-3), who bounced back from a tough 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts last week.

Randall Cobb hauled in seven passes for 102 yards, James Jones caught a pair of TD passes and Tom Crabtree hauled in two passes for 62 yards and a score.

The Atlanta Falcons beat the Oakland Raiders earlier Sunday to improve to 6-0. Arian Foster carried the ball 17 times for 29 yards and two touchdowns for Houston, which will welcome the Baltimore Ravens (5-1) to town next Sunday.
