Vikings snap divisional losing skid

Percy Harvin returned the opening kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown, and Marcus Sherels scored on a punt return early in the third Sunday, as the Minnesota Vikings beat the Lions in Detroit for their first NFC North win since 2010.

Minnesota (3-1), in first place in the NFC North, snapped an 11-game losing streak in the division.

The Lions (1-3) are the first team since at least 1940 to give up a kickoff and a punt return for TDs in consecutive games, according to STATS LLC. They gave up scores on a kickoff and punt in last week’s 44-41 loss in overtime at Tennessee.

Rams 19, Seahawks 13: Rookie Greg Zuerlein kicked four field goals, including a 58-yarder and a club record 60-yarder, and the Rams also used a fake field goal to score their only TD of the game in St. Louis.

Marshawn Lynch led the Seahawks (2-2) with 118 yards and a TD on 20 carries. Russell Wilson threw three interceptions.

Falcons 30, Panthers 28: Matt Bryant’s third field goal was a 40-yarder with 5 seconds remaining to cap in improbable rally in the final minute in Atlanta.

Matt Ryan threw three TD passes for the Falcons (4-0), who are off to their best start since 2004, when they reached the NFC championship game.

Texans 38, Titans 14: Danieal Manning and Kareem Jackson returned interceptions for touchdowns, and Matt Schaub threw two TD passes in Houston.

Arian Foster had a touchdown run for the Texans (4-0), who are off to the best start in club history.

Cardinals 24, Dolphins 21, OT: Jay Feely kicked a 46-yard field goal 6:31 into overtime to keep Arizona unbeaten with a win at home.

The Cardinals (4-0) forced OT when Kevin Kolb threw a 15-yard TD pass on fourth down to Andre Roberts with 22 seconds left in regulation.
