The Patriots raced into a 20-0 lead in the first quarter as Sony Michel got the first before Tom Brady set up Phillip Dorsett and Julian Edelman. Stephen Gostkowski missed the first extra point but kicked the second and third.

Gostkowski kicked a third-quarter field goal before Rex Burkhead claimed New England's fourth touchdown to take them 30-0 ahead.

Arthur Maulet recovered a punt fumble to get New York back into the game, and when back-up quarterback Jarrett Stidham was intercepted in the fourth, Jamal Adams ran 61 yards for the touchdown - but that was as good as it got for the Jets.

Buffalo were pushed all the way in Cincinnati and were indebted to Frank Gore, whose one-yard touchdown late in the game sealed the 21-17 win.

The Miami Dolphins prop up the AFC East after a 31-6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys took their start to the season to three straight defeats.

Dak Prescott combined twice with wide receiver Amari Cooper for scores before getting a touchdown of his own as Dallas dominated in Florida.

Kansas City head the AFC West after a hard-fought 33-28 victory at Baltimore.

A Mark Ingram touchdown gave the Ravens an early lead but the Chiefs hit back and after going in front were never headed.

But from 23-6 ahead in the second quarter, they had to hold off a spirited Ravens side as quarterback Lamar Jackson scrambled for a late touchdown to bring his side to within five points.

Indianapolis Colts made it two wins from two as the AFC South outfit defeated the Atlanta Falcons 27-24.

Over in the NFC North there were wins for Green Bay, Detroit and Minnesota.

The Packers defeated the Denver Broncos 27-16, the Lions edged past the Philadelphia Eagles 27-24 and the Vikings were 34-14 winners over the Oakland Raiders.

Daniel Jones celebrated his first start for the New York Giants with a win, as the rookie quarterback ran in a late touchdown himself at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Saints started their six weeks without Drew Brees in fine fashion by earning a tough win at the Seattle Seahawks, while the San Francisco 49ers moved to 3-0 for the first time in two decades as they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers - who didn't fare so well without their star QB Ben Roethlisberger.
