Update on the latest from the NFL:

Sunday - 10/13/2013, 5:48pm  ET

UNDATED (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs are now unbeaten in six games this season. They beat the visiting Raiders 24-7 to continue the second-best start in franchise history. The Chiefs won their first nine games during the 2003 season. Jamaal Charles ran for two touchdowns in the win as the Chiefs piled up 10 sacks while ending a three-game skid to the Raiders. Oakland is now 2-4. The win also brought to an end a six-game losing streak to the Raiders at KC's Arrowhead Stadium.

Adrian Peterson kept true to his word and played for the Vikings in their 35-10 loss to the Panthers. Peterson took part in the game just days after learning of the death of his two-year old son. The NFL MVP learned on Friday of the death of his infant son in South Dakota of injuries from alleged abuse. Peterson carried the ball 10 times for 62 yards. He also had 21 yards on three receptions.

Any thought that the Steelers might end the season without a win is over as they beat the Jets 19-6. Ben Roethlisberger (RAWTH'-lihs-bur-gur) threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders and Shaun Suisham kicked four field goals for the 1-4 Steelers. The loss dropped the Jets to 3-3. The Steelers were off to their worst start since 1968, when they lost their first six games during a season in which they finished 2-11-1. Sunday's victory was also the 600th in franchise history, including the postseason, as Pittsburgh became only the fourth team to reach the milestone.

The Super Bowl champion Ravens are now 3-3 after a 19-17 loss to the Packers in Baltimore. Aaron Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson and Mason Crosby kicked four field goals for the Pack. Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers' first road win of the season. After Baltimore closed to 19-17 on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco (FLAK'-oh) to Dallas Clark with 2:04 remaining, Rodgers clinched the victory by completing a 52-yard pass to Jermichael Finley on a third-and-3. Despite playing without injured linebacker Clay Matthews, the Packers limited Baltimore to 47 yards rushing and registered five sacks, including three by A.J. Hawk.

Reserve quarterback Nick Foles connected on three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth in leading the Eagles to a 31-20 victory over winless Tampa Bay. With the injured Michael Vick active but not playing, Foles made his seventh career start and beat the 0-5 Bucs for the second time. He gave the 3-3 Eagles the lead for good with a 47-yard scoring pass to Riley Cooper in the third quarter, then gave his team breathing room with his second TD pass to Jackson.

Cleveland's three-game winning streak is over. Behind four touchdown passes by Matthew Stafford the Lions beat the Browns in Cleveland, 31-17. Three of the four TD throws came in the second half when the 4-2 Lions outscored the Browns 24-0. Lions' running back Reggie Bush finished with 135 total yards, 121 in the second half. Stafford finished 25 of 43 for 248 yards.

Playing in Houston, the St. Louis Rams got a 38-13 win over the Texans. Sam Bradford led the way with three touchdown passes and the St. Louis defense added a score. Texans quarterback Matt Schaub left the game with an apparent ankle injury and was replaced by T.J. Yates.

In the lone overtime game among the early results, Mike Nugent hit a 43-yard field goal with 6:44 left in OT as the Bengal beat the Bills 27-24. Brandon Tate's 29-yard punt return to the Bills 33 set up the decisive score. Andy Dalton had a big day for the Bengals, completing 26 of 40 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns. He bounced back after a two-game touchdown drought and led the 4-2 Bengals to their first road win of the season. The 2-4 Bills were led by quarterback Thad Lewis, who started in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. He finished 19 of 32 for 216 yards and two touchdowns.
