Alford's pick-six makes Falcons 5-0
• ATLANTA 25, WASHINGTON 19 (OT): Robert Alford returned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown Sunday, keeping the host Falcons unbeaten. The Redskins had the first possession of OT, and Kirk Cousins moved the team to midfield. When wide receiver Ryan Grant slipped on a pass route, Alford caught Cousins' pass and was left with open field down the Falcons sideline for the touchdown. Devonta Freeman's apparent 13-yard TD catch in the final minute of regulation was ruled incomplete on a review. Freeman scored on 6-yard run two plays later to give Atlanta a 19-16 lead. Dustin Hopkins' 52-yard field goal on the final play of regulation for Washington (2-3) forced overtime.
• ARIZONA 42, DETROIT 17: Carson Palmer threw for three touchdowns, while Matthew Stafford was benched after throwing a third interception as the Cardinals (4-1) made the Lions (0-5) the NFL's only winless team. Palmer was poised and efficient, completing 11 of 14 passes for 161 yards, with a 14-yard pass to Darren Fells, an 18-yard connection to John Brown, and a 2-yard strike to Larry Fitzgerald for scores.
• PHILADELPHIA 39, NEW ORLEANS 17: Sam Bradford overcame two red-zone interceptions and threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns, Fletcher Cox forced two fumbles on sacks and the host Eagles (2-3) broke out of an offensive slump by dropping the Saints to 1-4. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees had three turnovers that led to 17 Philadelphia points.
