Matt Prater kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired, and Peyton Manning and Denver overcame the first 500-yard passing game in Dallas history to keep the Broncos unbeaten with a 51-48 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday in Arlington, Texas.

Manning set a new NFL record with 20 touchdown passes through his first five games, and finished with 414 yards and four scores for Denver.

Tony Romo threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns for Dallas, but he was intercepted by Danny Trevathan inside the Dallas 30 in the final 2 minutes to set up Prater’s winning kick.

The teams combined for 1,039 yards of total offense in the second-highest scoring game in regulation since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, according to STATS. Cincinnati and Cleveland combined for 106 points in the Browns’ 58-48 win in 2004.

Colts 34, Seahawks 28: Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes, and Donald Brown scored the go-ahead TD with 8:55 to go in Indianapolis.

Delano Howell scored on a 61-yard return of a blocked field goal for Indy. Luck led his ninth career fourth-quarter comeback, and finished 16-for-29 for 229 yards.

Indy trailed 12-0 early, went ahead after Howell’s return, then rallied again to take the lead for good on Brown’s TD.

Russell Wilson was 15-for-31 for 210 yards with two TDs and an interception, and ran 13 times for 102 yards.

Chiefs 26, Titans 17: Jamaal Charles scored a 1-yard touchdown with 6:23 left, and the Chiefs rallied on the road to keep up their perfect start.

The Chiefs (5-0) are off to their best start since 2003, when they won their first nine games. This win came despite blowing a 13-0 halftime lead.

Charles put the Chiefs ahead to stay, and their defense intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick twice in the final 6:14.

Ryan Succop kicked four field goals, including a 48-yarder.

The Titans, who looked completely out of sync in the first half with backup Ryan Fitzpatrick starting for the injured Jake Locker, scored 17 straight points to take a second-half lead.

Rams 34, Jaguars 20: Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes, and Matt Giordano’s 82-yard interception return was one of several big plays St. Louis got from its defense to win at home over winless Jacksonville.

Austin Pettis’ 31-yard TD catch with 5:45 to go was his second of the day and put the Rams up by two scores. St. Louis, which had trailed by double digits in every game, established control with a 17-point second quarter after Jacksonville had a pair of early leads.

Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert injured his left hamstring in the third quarter. Rookie left tackle Luke Joeckel was carted off with a right ankle injury in the first.
