UNDATED (AP) - Jordan Howard has led the Chicago Bears to their first win in nine September games over three seasons under coach John Fox.

Howard had 138 of Chicago's 220 yards rushing and scored the winning touchdown in overtime to give the Bears a 23-17 triumph over the Steelers. He raced 19 yards for the game-ending TD 7:33 into the extra period after rookie Tarik Cohen initially appeared to score on a 73-yard burst.  Cohen was ruled out of bounds at the Pittsburgh 37, but Howard's run dropped the Steelers' all-time record in Chicago to 1-13.

Ben Roethlisberger (RAWTH'-lis-bur-gur) threw for 235 yards and a touchdown for the 2-1 Steelers.

     - Jake Elliott drilled a 61-yard field goal as time expired to give the Eagles a 27-24 victory over the 0-3 Giants.

The Eagles improved to 2-1 despite Eli Manning's three touchdown passes during a 5:21 span of the fourth quarter, which put New York ahead 21-14.

     - The Falcons were able to celebrate a 30-26 win over the Lions after Matthew Stafford's pass to Golden Tate in the final seconds was ruled to be just short of the goal line. The defending NFC champion Falcons overcame Matt Ryan's three interceptions and many other mistakes to improve to 3-0 and drop the Lions to 2-1. Ryan's second scoring pass broke a 23-all tie 10 seconds into the fourth quarter.
