KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs relentlessly blitzed Jordan Love in a 13-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

Love was in for Aaron Rodgers, who missed the game after testing positive for the coronavirus last week.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — James Conner ran for two touchdowns and caught a 45-yard TD pass from backup quarterback Colt McCoy as the Arizona Cardinals earned a 31-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers. The 8-1 Cardinals played without quarterback Kyler Murray and receivers DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green but still had little trouble completing the season sweep against the 3-5 49ers. Conner finished with 173 yards from scrimmage and now leads the NFL in TDs with 11, all scored in the past seven games.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Byard (BY’-urd) returned Matthew Stafford’s second consecutive interception 24 yards for a touchdown, part of a defensive effort that sent the Tennessee Titans to a 28-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Jeffery Simmons had three of Tennessee’s five sacks of Stafford during a stifling performance against the Rams’ prolific passing offense. Ryan Tannehill threw for a TD and ran for another as the Titans won despite just 194 offensive yards in their first game without injured NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys’ six-game winning streak has ended with a 30-16 home loss to the Denver Broncos.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Justin Tucker drilled a 36-yard field goal with 16 seconds left on the clock in overtime to give the Baltimore Ravens a 34-31 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Lamar Jackson ran for 120 yards on 21 carries and threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions as Baltimore moved to 6-2.
