The Latest: Brees throws 2 TDs to match Favre career total
The Latest on Week 10 in the NFL (all times EST):
New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees has thrown two touchdown passes against Cincinnati to up his regular-season total to 508 and match Brett Favre for second on the NFL career list.
Brees first TD was a 7-yarder to Michael Thomas midway through the first quarter. Mark Ingram II then turned a screen pass into a 28-yard touchdown
Peyton Manning holds the record with 539.
Six teams reached the end zone on the opening possession of their games Sunday to get Week 10 off to a high-scoring start.
Kansas City, which lost the coin toss for the first time all season, went 75 yards in 56 seconds. Three plays were needed, with Patrick Mahomes connecting with Tyreek Hill for 38 yards, then for a 37-yard touchdown.
Tennessee's Darius Jennings returned the opening kickoff 58 yards, then the Titans needed seven plays to go 40 yards, capped by Marcus Mariota 4-yard TD pass to Jonnu Smith against New England.
Chicago's Tarik Cohen had a 3-yard TD run to cap an eight-play, 75-yard drive vs. Detroit. But Cody Parkey missed the extra point.
Indianapolis covered 75 yards in seven plays and Andrew Luck found Eric Ebron for a 53-yard scoring pass against Jacksonville.
Buffalo used a mere two plays against the Jets, with newcomer Matt Barkley throwing 47 yards to Robert Foster before LeSean McCoy broke from a lengthy slump for his first touchdown this season, on a 28-yard run.
And Drew Brees threw his 507th career touchdown pass, leaving him one behind Brett Favre for second place on the career list, capping a 15-play, 75-yard drive that consumed 8 minutes, 30 seconds. It ended with Michael Thomas' diving 7-yard catch.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes needed only 56 seconds to throw his first touchdown pass against Arizona, moving him into a tie with Hall of Famer Len Dawson for the single-season franchise record.
Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill down the sideline for 38 yards on the game's first play. Then, after an incompletion, Mahomes found Hill again for a 37-yard touchdown reception.
It was the 30th thrown by Mahomes this season. Dawson threw 30 during the 1964 season.

The Indianapolis Colts honored kicker Adam Vinatieri, the NFL's new career scoring leader, with a brief highlight show during pregame introduction before their game against Jacksonville.
Vinatieri received a roaring ovation from the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd when he was announced as the final starter. The 45-year-old waved to the crowd and slapped hands with a group of fans gathered around the American flag on the field.
Vinatieri broke Morten Andersen's record two weeks ago at Oakland, but the Colts had a bye last week and Sunday marked the first time Indy could celebrate the record-breaking moment on its home turf.
Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey was the last of the Titans defense introduced before kickoff for Tennessee's game against New England.
Casey took the field carrying an American flag, and first shaking hands with a soldier as part of the NFL's Salute to Service being held on Veteran's Day. A soldier accompanied each Titans starter onto the field for a few steps.
Country artist Little Big Town performed the national anthem, which featured a flyover by military helicopters.
Drew Brees and Tom Brady enter Week 10 of the NFL's schedule neck and neck in closing in on matching Brett Favre for second place on the career regular-season list.
Brees has 506 touchdowns passing, two behind Favre, as the New Orleans Saints play at Cincinnati. And Brady has 505 with his New England Patriots playing at Tennessee. Both are a little more than 30 behind Peyton Manning's record of 539.
Brady does have chance to pass Manning on the career touchdowns passing list, including playoffs. Manning has 579, only three more than Brady.
On the other end of the quarterback matchup spectrum Sunday, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will feature a battle of the backups rather than far more intriguing AFC East showdown of two rookie first-round picks.
Matt Barkley is starting in place of Buffalo's Josh Allen, who will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained throwing elbow. For New York, Josh McCown is starting in place Sam Darnold, who is sidelined by a strained right foot. Darnold was drafted third overall, four spots ahead of Allen.
