Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett set a franchise record for the longest kickoff return during Sunday's 26-0 win over the Chicago Bears, taking a kick back 105 yards for a touchdown to open the second half, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Selected in the third round (69th overall) of the 2015 NFL draft, the rookie out of Kansas State made waves in the preseason, scoring a trio of long touchdowns on a punt return, a kickoff return and a reception.

Lockett then carried his success into the regular season, breaking off a 57-yard punt return touchdown in Seattle's 34-31 Week 1 overtime loss to the St. Louis Rams, and also catching all four of his targets for 34 yards.

Following a quiet performance in a Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers, Lockett was back at it in Week 3, with his touchdown giving the Seahawks a 13-0 lead just 12 seconds into the second half.

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman turned in the best performance of his young career in Sunday's 39-28 win over the Dallas Cowboys, becoming just the fifth running back in franchise history to rush for 100 or more yards with three or more rushing touchdowns in the same game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The feat was last accomplished by an Atlanta running back in 2010, when Michael Turner rumbled for 112 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries in a 31-10 Week 14 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Freeman was even more impressive in Sunday's game, putting up 141 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries, with another 52 yards on five receptions.

Despite recording no more than 12 carries in each of his first 18 NFL games, Freeman became the first Falcons player since Turner (also in 2010) to hit the 30-carry barrier in a regular-season contest, per Pro-Football-Reference.com.

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle had three rushing touchdowns during the first half of Sunday's 39-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, marking the first time since 2012 (Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson) that a player has run for three touchdowns in the first half of an NFL game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Randle got off to a roaring start Sunday afternoon, with his first carry going for 28 yards and his second tote going for a 37-yard touchdown.

He took his third carry for another 20 yards, and while he didn't find any room to run for the rest of the day, he still managed to add a pair of one-yard touchdowns before halftime.

Despite the red-hot start, Randle finished with 87 rushing yards on 14 carries, as his final 11 carries netted just two yards.

The Buffalo Bills beat the Miami Dolphins by a score of 41-14 at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday, with the 27-point margin representing Buffalo's largest victory in Miami since the rivalry's very first season in 1966 (29 points), per Sportsnet Stats.

Although the Bills won by scores of 58-24 (in Buffalo) and 29-0 (in Miami) during the first year of the rivalry, the Dolphins eventually came to dominate, at one point winning 20 straight meetings between the beginning of 1970 and end of 1979, per pro-football-reference.com.

Hard as it may be to believe, the teams played 20 times during the 1970s, and the Bills didn't win a single game.

The Dolphins continued their dominance of the rivalry through the '80s, and while the Bills have mostly had the upper hand over the last 30 years, Miami still owns a 57-41-1 advantage in the regular-season meetings.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber may have suffered through another rough outing, but his first strikeout in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins made him the Indians' first right-handed pitcher since Bob Feller (1940-41) to record 500 or more strikeouts over a two-year span, per MLB Stat of the Day.

After striking out 269 batters in his Cy Young-winning 2014 campaign, Kluber entered Monday's contest with 230 strikeouts this season, needing just one more to reach 500 over the two-year span.

He got the necessary strikeout against Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario to end the first inning, but only after surrendering an RBI double to Twins designated hitter Miguel Sano and a two-run home run to Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe.

With his team in an early 3-0 hole and the Twins getting the best of him in a second straight start, Kluber probably wouldn't have cared about the milestone even if he had known.

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett reached a milestone during the first inning of Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs, becoming the 32nd pitcher in MLB history to record 2,500 or more career strikeouts, per MLB Stat of the Day.

Entering the contest with 2,499 strikeouts, the 38-year-old Burnett got off to a rocky start in the first inning, allowing four of the five batters he faced to reach base.

With one run already in and the bases loaded, Burnett got ahead in the count against Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler, who foul-tipped a 1-2 pitch into the glove of Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli for the milestone strikeout.

Burnett then induced a groundout from Cubs catcher Miguel Montero to end the inning, but Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta hit a solo homer in the bottom of the second to extend the lead to 2-0.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper is off to a historically fast start, with his 290 receiving yards good for third-most by a rookie in NFL history through the first three games of a season, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com (via Josh Dubow of the Associated Press).

Despite catching just five passes for 47 yards in his Week 1 debut against the Cincinnati Bengals, the No. 4 overall draft pick trails only Anquan Boldin (378) and Louis Lipps (337) for most receiving yards by a rookie through Week 3.

Cooper broke out in a 37-33 Week 2 home win over the Baltimore Ravens, catching seven passes for 109 yards and a score on 11 targets, with his day highlighted by a 68-yard touchdown.

He then caught eight balls for 134 yards on 11 targets in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Cleveland Browns, helping the Raiders improve to 2-1 for the first time since 2011.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden completed his first nine passes in Sunday's 39-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, giving him a franchise-record 21 consecutive completions dating back to a game against the Arizona Cardinals last season, per Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

With Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo out until at least midseason due to a fractured clavicle, the game plan for Weeden largely revolved around the running game and short passes, allowing the 31-year-old to get off to a hot start.

Led by running back Joseph Randle, the Cowboys put up 28 points on six first-half drives, but they failed to score on four second-half drives.

With Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Devonta Freeman and wide receiver Julio Jones all having huge days, Atlanta had little trouble rallying back from first-half deficits of 21-7 and 28-14.

Already at 34 receptions this season, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has set a new NFL record for most catches by a player through his team's first three games, per Rand Getlin of NFL Network.

Jones is also the first player in league history to record 135 or more receiving yards in each of his team's first three games, per Getlin.

With 34 catches for 440 yards and four touchdowns to date, he is incredibly on pace to finish with 181 catches for 2,347 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Although he obviously won't be able to maintain that pace, Jones could make a real run at the single-season records for receptions and receiving yards, with the latter held by former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison (143 in 2002) and the former set by Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (1,964 in 2012).

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles recorded the eighth return touchdown of his career during Sunday's 24-17 win over the New York Jets, taking a punt 89 yards to the house in the second quarter to give his team a 10-0 lead, per the Eagles' official website.

It was the second-longest punt return in franchise history, trailing only Damaris Johnson's 98-yarder from a 2012 game against the Dallas Cowboys. With three of his six career punt return touchdowns coming in an Eagles uniform, Sproles once again ranks second in team history, behind only DeSean Jackson (four).

Per NFL Network's Rand Getlin, Sproles is the only player in NFL history with 25 or more receiving touchdowns (27), 15 or more rushing touchdowns (18) and five or more punt return touchdowns (six).

The pint-sized 32-year-old displayed his trademark versatility in Sunday's game, adding a one-yard rushing touchdown later in the second quarter to give the Eagles a 24-0 lead.
