Titans Show off Scoring Skills in Unexpected Rout of Packers


Byline: Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Marcus Mariota threw for 295 yards and 4 touchdowns in the 47-25 rout of Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Five Titans scored a touchdown in the first half as Tennessee put together its best scoring performance this season.

With the win, the Titans (5-5) also matched their 5 victories over the past two seasons combined.

DeMarco Murray set the tone on the opening play from scrimmage, running 75 yards for a touchdown. He finished with 123 yards and also threw a TD pass, becoming the first non-quarterback to do that for this franchise in the same game since Earl Campbell on Sept. 7, 1980, for the then-Houston Oilers.

The Packers (4-5) lost their third straight.

Seahawks 31, Patriots 24:

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- This time, Seattle won it at the goal line.

It certainly won't make up for the Super Bowl loss two seasons back, but the Seahawks' goal-line stand lifted them to victory over the New England Patriots.

Tom Brady couldn't connect with Rob Gronkowski on a fade pattern on fourth down as New England (7-2) failed four times from inside the 2 in the dying moments.

Doug Baldwin caught 3 touchdown passes for Seattle (6-2-1), including a 15-yarder for the final margin.

Broncos 25, Saints 23:

SAN DIEGO -- Denver's Justin Simmons used a perfectly timed leap over the offensive line to block an extra-point kick that would have given New Orleans a late lead, Will Parks ran it back 84 yards for a defensive 2-point conversion, and the Broncos (7-3) pulled out a wild victory.

The decisive play came while the Superdome crowd was still celebrating Brandin Cooks' twisting, 32-yard touchdown catch between two defenders. That put New Orleans (4-5) in position to take the lead with 1:28 left. Simmons' block of Wil Lutz's kick was scooped up by Parks, who nearly stepped out of bounds as he raced down the left sideline.

It was the first such play to provide the winning points in an NFL game. The rule was instituted last year.

Washington 26, Vikings 20:

LANDOVER, Md. -- Kirk Cousins threw for 2 touchdowns, Preston Smith had 2 sacks and a game-altering interception in Washington's first victory in almost a month.

Washington (5-3-1) got all of its second-half points off the foot of Dustin Hopkins, who hit 4 field goals, including a 50-yarder. Washington shut out Minnesota (5-4) in the second half, and Smith sacked Sam Bradford in the final seconds to hand the Vikings their fourth consecutive loss.

Cowboys 35, Steelers 30:

PITTSBURGH -- Ezekiel Elliott ran for 114 yards and 2 touchdowns -- both in the final two minutes -- and had an 83-yard catch-and-run for a score as the Cowboys pulled off a thrilling victory for their eighth straight win.

Dak Prescott overcame an early fumble to pass for 319 yards and 2 scores for Dallas (8-1), which matched the longest single-season win streak in club history behind the two rookies who hardly seem bothered by the stage. …
