Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill set an NFL record with 25 straight completions as his team thrashed the Houston Texans 44-26 on Sunday.

The Dolphins might want to consider lifting the interim tag from coach Dan Campbell, who has led them to a pair of blowout wins.

Tannehill set a record with 25 straight completions dating back to last week's 38-10 win over the Tennessee Titans.

He finished 18 of 19 passing for 282 yards with four touchdowns.

On the opposite coast, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was 24 of 31 for 289 yards and three scores as Oakland had a 37-29 win over the San Diego Chargers.

With three of the NFL's undefeated teams - the Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals - on bye weeks, the Patriots moved to 6-0 with a 30-23 win over the visiting New York Jets.

The Carolina Panthers are also unbeaten and 6-0 after a 27-16 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Charlotte.

Elsewhere, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford hurt his hand in their 28-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Drew Brees guided the New Orleans Saints to a 27-21 victory against the Indianapolis Colts and the Jacksonville Jaguars edged the Buffalo Bills 34-31.

Dwayne Harris had a 100-yard kick-off return TD as the New York Giants were 27-20 winners against the Dallas Cowboys.

Kirk Cousins' late TD pass helped the Washington Redskins past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-30 and the Atlanta Falcons overcame the Tennessee Titans 10-7.

The Kansas City Chiefs ended a five-game losing run with a 23-13 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The St Louis Rams were untroubled by the Cleveland Browns, claiming a 24-6 win.
