ATLANTA (AP) -- Matt Bryant kicked his second game-winning field goal in three weeks, a 55-yarder with 1 second remaining, and the Atlanta Falcons remained unbeaten with a sloppy 23-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Overcoming Matt Ryan's three interceptions, the Falcons (6-0) extended the best start in franchise history. But it wasn't easy against the pesky Raiders (1-4).

Atlanta pulled ahead when Asante Samuel returned an interception 79 yards for a touchdown with 2:40 remaining, only to wind up tied again when Carson Palmer led Oakland down the field for a tying score. Darren McFadden powered in from the 2 with 40 seconds left.

That was just enough time for Ryan and Bryant to pull off another fourth-quarter victory. Ryan completed four passes to set up the winning kick.
