Bengals (c) are in prime form.

The Cincinnati Bengals maintained their winning start to the NFL season as they saw off the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-10 on Sunday.

Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass with 2:57 to go and the Bengals picked off Ben Roethlisberger twice in the fourth quarter to go 7-0 for the first time in their history and take a comfortable lead at the top of the AFC North.

The Minnesota Vikings came out on top in their clash with the Chicago Bears as Adrian Peterson ran for 103 yards and Blair Walsh kicked a 36-yard field goal in their 23-20 win.

Earlier in London, the Kansas City Chiefs breathed fresh life into their season as they punished a poor Detroit Lions team 45-10 in Wembley’s third NFL game of the year.

The win moves the Chiefs to 3-5, still well short of pre-season expectations, but at least they do not have Detroit’s problems, after they slipped to 1-7.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford piled up 217 yards but was sacked six times, and picked off twice, while the Chiefs’ offence ran riot.

Quarterback Alex Smith amassed 78 yards on the ground, including a 49-yard dash in the second quarter and a touchdown run from 11 yards out. Smith also had 145 passing yards for two scores.

Brian Hoyer threw for 235 yards and scored two touchdowns as the Houston Texans tied a franchise record with seven sacks in a comfortable 20-6 victory over the Tennessee Titans to go 3-5.

Justin Tucker kicked a late 39-yard field goal as the Baltimore Ravens claimed a 29-26 victory over the San Diego Chargers, while Carson Palmer threw four touchdown passes for 374 yards as the Arizona Cardinals saw off the Cleveland Browns 34-20.

Elsewhere, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat Atlanta Falcons 23-20, the St Louis Rams recorded a 27-6 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints edged a 101-point thriller against the New York Giants 52-49.

Denver Broncos kept their winning start going and at the same time inflicted a first defeat on Green Bay Packers with a 29-10 victory, Seattle Seahawks edged a tight battle with Dallas Cowboys 13-12 while Oakland Raiders beat New York Jets 34-20.
