  1. Bye for now

    So that's our second NFL Sunday live in the books, and what another pulsating night of action it was. We saw Patrick Mahomes display his MVP talents in just one quarter, the Bears edge a thriller and the Cowboys, Rams and Patriots all lay down markers.

    Scroll down for reports and highlights from Sunday's games, and remember we'll have video clips of the best action on the BBC Sport website through the week.

  3. Mahomes shows MVP moves

    Late games highlight

    Patrick Mahomes

    Patrick Mahomes again showed why he’s the MVP favourite with a special performance as the Kansas City Chiefs stunned the Oakland Raiders – who led 10-0 after being the first team in 23 games to shutout Andy Reid’s side in the first quarter of a regular season game.

    Mahomes responded as MVPs do, with four touchdown throws and 278 yards passing in just a single quarter – the second-most in one quarter in the last 40 years behind Drew Brees’ 298-yard effort in 2008.

    Mahomes hit Demarcus Robinson for scores either side of two more strikes to Travis Kelce and Mecole Hardman in a 28-point blitz that had the Raiders’ heads spinning.

    Amazingly, that was all the scoring done as both sides failed to add a single point in the second half, but the damage had been done by Mahomes and his 2-0 Chiefs who will remain among the Super Bowl favourites as long as he’s leading their ‘Legion of Zoom’ offence.

  4. Rams reign in rematch

    Late games round-up

    Chicago Bears

    The Los Angeles Rams won their NFC Championship rematch with the New Orleans Saints as an injury to Drew Brees saw the visitors find points hard to come by in a hard-hitting battle where neither offence could dominate.

    Rams running back Todd Gurley managed to run in a touchdown and Jared Goff hit Brandin Cooks for a score and marshalled his offence expertly, while stand-in Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater just couldn’t make an impact.

    Rams receiver Cooper Kupp was denied an incredible touchdown as he was judged to have been tackled at the one-yard line after a breathtaking 66-yard run – with Goff himself taking it in from close range to seal the win as the Rams put a marker down in the NFC.

    A crazy end to the game in Denver saw the Broncos pinch the lead with a two-point conversion with just 30 seconds left, but Mitchell Trubisky got the Chicago Bears in field-goal range with just one second on the clock. For a team that had such kicking woes last year, Eddy Pineiro gave them some welcome success as he booted a 53-yard winner.

  5. How do you stop the Patriots?

    Best of the early games

    Antonio Brown and Tom Brady

    The New England Patriots look in ominous form as they shutout the woeful Miami Dolphins 43-0, with new receiver Antonio Brown scoring a touchdown on his debut and showing instant chemistry with Tom Brady that will worry the rest of the NFL.

    The Pats are now 76-3 on aggregate over two games, with those three points allowed tied with the fewest ever in the opening two games in the Super Bowl era. The defending champions already look like they’ll take some stopping.

    Aaron Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a flying start as they edged out divisional rivals the Minnesota Vikings, with their new-look defence looking the real deal as they limited a well-rounded offence to just 16 points.

    The Dallas Cowboys can also be labelled as NFC contenders after a second emphatic victory over NFC East rivals, although there will be bigger tests ahead than Washington. Dak Prescott is playing like a man who wants a bumper new contract, as he beat the Redskins' defence with his arms and legs, throwing for three TDs and 269 yards while running for a further 69.

  6. Seahawks, Bills & Niners go 2-0

    Early games round-up

    Seattle Seahawks

    Russell Wilson threw his 200th touchdown for the Seattle Seahawks as they went 2-0 with a tough win at the Pittsburgh Steelers as opposite QB Ben Roethlisberger left the game with a worrying elbow injury as his side slipped to 0-2.

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are also 0-2 after head coach Doug Marrone went for a late two-point conversion to try to win at the Houston Texans, but ended up losing by a point when it was unsuccessful.

    The San Francisco 49ers are a surprising 2-0 having battered the Cincinnati Bengals, scoring 30-plus points in their first two games for the first time in 21 years. They’re joined by the Baltimore Ravens in the dark horse category as they beat the Arizona Cardinals behind a stout defence and another star display by Lamar Jackson. The QB had 100 rushing yards more than the entire Arizona team.

    Matt Stafford engineered a 28th fourth-quarter comeback of his career to help the Detroit Lions beat the LA Chargers – with Philip Rivers throwing a late interception with his team in field-goal position to tie the game. The Indianapolis Colts edged out the Tennessee Titans while the Buffalo Bills won away at MetLife Stadium for the second week running as they beat the New York Giants after ousting the Jets last Sunday.

  7. Scenes in Denver

    FT: Broncos 14-16 Bears

    It's hard to put into words that dramatic finish at Mile High. But this might help do it justice.

  8. Goff passes milestone

    FT: Rams 27-9 Saints

    Jared Goff also passed 10,000 passing yards for the LA Rams, in his 43rd NFL game.

  9. Goff goes long

    FT: Rams 27-9 Saints

    Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff fires a huge 57-yard bomb to Brandin Cooks - a former Saints receiver.

  10. Crazy interception

    FT: Rams 27-9 Saints

    How John Johnson managed to come up with the ball on this pick is anyone's guess.

  11. Full-time

    Rams 27-9 Saints

    The Rams see it out. It's just the third game under head coach Sean Payton in which the New Orleans Saints have failed to score a touchdown.

    To put that into context, it's his 207th in charge.

    But in fairness, they lost Drew Brees to a thumb injury in the first quarter and were denied a legitimate TD. What the tweet below doesn't say is that had it been ruled a fumble in real time, play would have continued and Cameron Jordan's run of 80+ yards into the end zone would have been a TD.

  12. Referee explainer

    Rams 27-9 Saints

    The NFL are always keen to explain the officiating during games - and here's a breakdown of why that big call on the incomplete pass from Jared Goff was made.

  13. Post update

    Rams 27-9 Saints

    Michael Thomas takes a couple of catches for the New Orleans Saints - taking him to 84 receiving yards - but they can't get within range so have to punt, as do the Rams.

    It's petering out this one.

  14. Full-time

    Broncos 14-16 Bears

    What a finish! Mitchell Trubisky somehow gets Chicago in field goal range with a desperate late completion and time out taken with just one second remaining!

    Eddy Pineiro nails the 53-yarder to win the game for the visitors. What a stunning finish to that one in Denver.

    Chicago Bears

    Broncos 14-13 Bears

    Amazing scenes at Mile High as Emmanuel Sanders sores a late touchdown for Denver, only for the extra point to sail wide...but wait! A flag for offsides means they get another chance, and this time they go for a two-point conversion!

    And they get it to lead by one - breathless finish in Denver.

  16. Strong outfit from Cam

    ICYMI, this is what Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton wore for last week's news conference.

  17. Post update

    Falcons v Eagles (01:20 BST)

    We'll be signing off before the Atlanta Falcons face the Philadelphia Eagles later but the Eagles have arrived at last season's Super Bowl venue.

    And tight end Zach Ertz is getting a little Cam Newton in his life - minus the barbed wire, of course.

  18. MVP Mahomes

    FT: Raiders 10-28 Chiefs

    Why is Patrick Mahomes the favourite to retain his MVP award? Because he throws strikes like this on a third-down and 20.

  19. FT Chiefs beat Raiders

    Raiders 10-28 Chiefs

    What a game, well what a quarter that was. All the points for the Chiefs coming in that special second 15 minutes from Patrick Mahomes, when you can do that you don't need to score in the other three.
