Aikman Errors Send Eagles Soaring

NEW YORK -- There were two shocking events in the NFL: Atlanta won its first game and Dallas lost because of Troy Aikman's mistakes.


Jamal Anderson rushed for a career-high 109 yards, and Atlanta (1-8) shut down Carolina after Kerry Collins left with an injured knee for a 20-17 win over the Panthers (5-4).


In Philadelphia, Aikman made two uncharacteristic errors that helped the Eagles beat the Cowboys 31-21.


Aikman threw an interception to set up the Eagles' go-ahead field goal, then was picked off again while trying to throw the ball away after the Cowboys reached the Philadelphia 3-yard line in the final minute.


The second mistake was returned for the clinching TD as the Eagles improved to 7-2 and the Cowboys fell to 5-4.


49ers 24, Saints 17. At New Orleans, Jerry Rice made his 1,000th career catch in the fourth quarter when he grabbed a 9-yard pass from Steve Young, who scored on a quarterback sneak on the next play to put the 49ers (7-2) up 24-14. New Orleans (2-7) kicked a field goal with 2:16 left and then tried an onside kick that was recovered by Rice.


Giants 16, Cardinals 8. At East Rutherford, rookie Danny Kanell guided the Giants (4-5) after starter Dave Brown suffered back spasms. Kanell threw a 24-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter.


Bengals 24, Ravens 21. At Baltimore, Doug Pelfrey kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give Cincinnati its second straight win under Bruce Coslet. The Bengals (3-6) picked off four Baltimore (3-6) passes.


Packers 28, Lions 18. At Green Bay, Brett Favre threw for four TDs as Green Bay (8-1) beat Detroit (4-5).


Steelers 42, Rams 6. At Pittsburgh, Jerome Bettis ran for two TDs to lead the Steelers (7-2) over the Rams (2-7).


Chargers 26, Colts 19. At Indianapolis, San Diego (5-4) harassed Jim Harbaugh into playing his worst game for the Colts (5-4), intercepting four of his passes.


Bears 13, Buccaneers 10. At Chicago, Bryan Cox, playing with a broken thumb, led an inspired Bears defense. After Chicago (4-5) took a 13-10 lead, Cox made three tackles to stop Tampa Bay (1-8) short of first downs.


Bills 38, Redskins 13. At Orchard Park, Thurman Thomas and backup Darick Holmes combined for 229 yards rushing and four TDs as Buffalo (6-3) snapped Washington's seven-game winning streak as the Redskins fell to 7-2.


Chiefs 21, Vikings 6. At Minneapolis, Marcus Allen tied Walter Payton's career NFL record with his 110th scoring run as the Chiefs (6-3) beat the Vikings (5-4).


Seahawks 23, Oilers 16. At Seattle, Seahawk linebacker Michael McCrary blocked Al Del Greco's field goal attempt in the final minute, picked the ball up and lateraled to Robert Blackmon, who scored on a 61-yard return with four seconds left. Seattle rose to 4-5 and Houston fell to 5-4.


Patriots 42, Dolphins 23. At Foxboro, Ben Coates scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 23-yard reception for New England (6-3) against Miami (4-5), then raced down the sidelines to complete an 84-yard pass play.
