NFL roundup: Giants stun Chiefs in overtime

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — After weeks of turmoil, adversity and questions about their effort, the New York Giants showed they have some fight left in them.

Beating the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday not only gave them a good feeling, it also left many wondering if the Chiefs might have joined them on the ropes.

Roger Lewis Jr. made a spectacular catch to set up the winning 23-yard yard goal by Aldrick Rosas in overtime, and the Giants beat the anemic Chiefs 12-9 on a blustery, cold Sunday for only their second win in 10 games.

The winning kick came two plays after Lewis was yanked to the ground by cornerback Phillip Gaines on a deep pass from Eli Manning, but still caught the ball while flat on his back for a 34-yard completion on a fourth-down heave. Had he not caught it, flags flew for pass interference.

Chiefs Coach Andy Reid was 16-2 in his career coming off a bye week, but Kansas City (6-4) stumbled to its fourth loss in five games since a 5-0 start.

EAGLES 37, COWBOYS 9: Carson Wentz threw for two touchdowns and three 2-point conversions after Philadelphia lost kicker Luke Elliott to a head injury, and the Eagles (9-1) all but wrapped up the NFC East with a victory at Dallas (5-5).

The Eagles (9-1) outscored the Cowboys 30-0 in the second half while extending their winning streak to eight games.

Dallas’ Dak Prescott threw a career-high three interceptions and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in his second straight loss without star running back Ezekiel Elliott, serving a six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence.

SAINTS 34, WASHINGTON 31: New Orleans (8-2) extended its winning streak to eight games, erasing a 15-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation and kicking a short field goal in overtime to defeat visiting Washington (4-6).

Mark Ingram capped a 131-yard rushing performance with gains of 20 and 31 yards in overtime to set up Wil Lutz’s 28-yard kick.

VIKINGS 24, RAMS 7: Latavius Murray rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns, Adam Thielen turned a short catch into a 65-yard score and Minnesota (8-2) smothered the NFL’s highest-scoring offense.

The loss for the visiting Rams (7-3), snapped a four-game winning streak in which they scored 144 points.

RAVENS 23, PACKERS 0: Visiting Baltimore (5-5) forced five turnovers in its third shutout of the season – a feat last accomplished when the Ravens had four shutouts in 2000.

The Packers (5-5) were shutout for the first time since Nov. 19, 2006.

CHARGERS 54, BILLS 24: Casey Hayward made two of Los Angeles’ five interceptions during a horrific first half by Buffalo rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman, and the Chargers (4-6) cruised to a win at home.

Korey Toomer returned Peterman’s first interception 59 yards for a touchdown on Buffalo’s opening drive. Peterman threw two more interceptions in the first quarter and two in the second before he was pulled with a 37-7 halftime deficit.

The Bills (5-5) lost their third straight.

BENGALS 20, BRONCOS 17: Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes as Cincinnati (4-6) snapped a 10-game losing streak in Denver, getting its first win there since 1975.

The Broncos (3-7) have lost six straight – their longest skid in 27 years.

LIONS 27, BEARS 24: Matthew Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns, and Matt Prater kicked a 52-yard field goal with 1:35 remaining to lift Detroit (6-4) to a win at Chicago (3-7).

Chicago’s Tarik Cohen tied the game with a 15-yard touchdown run before Prater’s field goal, but Connor Barth was wide right on a 46-yarder that would have tied the game again in the closing seconds.

JAGUARS 19, BROWNS 7: Blake Bortles threw a touchdown pass and linebacker Telvin Smith recovered a fumble for a TD with 1:14 remaining as Jacksonville (7-3) won at Cleveland (0-10) for its fourth straight victory and moved into sole possession of first place in the AFC South.

Jacksonville’s top-ranked defense forced five turnovers, two in the final two minutes.

BUCCANEERS 30, DOLPHINS 20: Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, Patrick Murray kicked a 35-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining and Tampa Bay (4-6) snapped a six-game road slide by topping penalty-prone Miami (4-6).

TEXANS 31, CARDINALS 21: Rookie D’Onta Foreman ran for 65 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns before being carted off the field with an ankle injury, helping Houston (4-6) snap a three-game skid with a win over visiting Arizona (4-6).

NHL roundup: Rangers Lundquist records his 63rd career shutout

AVALANCHE 4, RED WINGS 3: Nathan MacKinnon scored 2:55 into overtime and Colorado overcame a late two-goal deficit to win in Detroit.

GOLDEN KNIGHTS 4, KINGS 2: William Karlsson scored twice, Maxime Lagace stopped 27 shots and Vegas beat Los Angeles in Las Vegas.

NBA roundup: Curry scores 39 points in Golden State win

NEW YORK — Stephen Curry had season highs with 39 points and 11 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors held on after he fouled out to beat the Brooklyn Nets 118-111 on Sunday night.

A night after erasing a 22-point halftime deficit in Philadelphia, the Warriors built a 22-point cushion after two quarters behind 22 points from Curry. Playing without Kevin Durant, they led by 28 in the third quarter but Brooklyn cut it all the way to four after Curry picked up his sixth foul with three minutes remaining.

Klay Thompson then scored seven of his 23 points in the final two minutes.

RAPTORS 100, WIZARDS 91: DeMar DeRoan scored 33 points, C.J. Miles had 12 and Toronto beat Washington to avenge its only home loss of the season.

PACERS 120, HEAT 95: Bojan Bogdanovic scored 26 points, Myles Turner added 25 and Indiana embarrassed host Miami in the second half .

Turner made 11 of 14 shots for the Pacers, who won their third straight game overall and got their first win in Miami since Nov. 12, 2014. Each of the last 11 regular-season games in the series were won by the home team, until the Pacers emphatically changed that in this one.

PISTONS 100, TIMBERWOLVES 97: Andre Drummond had 20 points and 16 rebounds, Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley added 18 points each and Detroit won in Minnesota.

Harris hit two free throws with 3.3 seconds remaining, and Jimmy Butler’s last-second 3-point attempt rattled out.

SUNS 113, CHICAGO 105: T.J. Warren scored 27 points to lead six Phoenix players in double figures and the Suns handed Chicago its sixth loss in seven games, in Phoenix.

Sunday’s Maine college roundup: UMaine men basketball falls to 0-4

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Joseph Lopez led a balanced attack with 11 points, four in overtime, and Sacred Heart edged Maine 69-68 on Sunday in a consolation game of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off.

Sean Hoehn only scored four points but he had an opening layup and what proved to be the winning free throws with 15.9 seconds to play for the Pioneers (1-3).

Aaron Calixte, who had 18 points for Maine (0-4), made two free throws at 8.4 seconds left. But after Lopez missed the front end of a one-and-one at 7.6 left, the Black Bears couldn’t get off a potential winning shot.

Regulation ended in a similar fashion. Celio Araujo missed a pair of free throws for Maine with 16 seconds left and Lopez muscled to the hoop to tie the game at 59 with 6.3 to play, but the Black Bears lost the ball without getting off a final shot.

Celtics notebook: Modified mask works for Irving

ATLANTA — At the advice of the Celtics medical staff, Kyrie Irving put his protective mask back on Saturday night. And unlike Thursday’s win over Golden State, the Celtics guard actually finished the night with the plastic device still in place.

But he did request some modifications in the gear, namely larger eye holes.

It seemed to work Saturday night, as he scored 30 points in the 110-99 win over Atlanta in his most efficient shooting night of the season.

“Felt good. Didn’t see me take it off as much, so that’s a positive,” he said after hitting 10 of 12 shots from the floor.

“Saw a little bit more of the crowd tonight, the eye holes were a little bit bigger. The basket looked a little better. I was able to keep it on, and it was a better fit.”

Irving’s 11-point fourth quarter against the Warriors on Thursday night was clearly empowered by his decision to finish the game without the mask – necessary to protect a minor facial fracture under his right eye.

Though clearly irritated by the mask, Irving agreed with the medical staff’s advice Saturday.

“For as long as I need to wear it,” said Irving.

Coach Brad Stevens made sure to steer clear of the decision-making process.

“I didn’t get in the middle of those conversations, I have no idea what was advised,” he said. “Like I said the other day, we highly recommended (wearing the mask). But, yeah, that’s not my avenue.”

THE FRICTION between Dennis Schroder and the Celtics lives on despite the departure of the Atlanta guard’s nemesis, Isaiah Thomas.

Marcus Smart, with a Band-Aid on his nose the newest symbol of strife, was the latest to tangle with Schroder.

“Actually, I got hit in the jaw,” Smart said of a blow he absorbed in the third quarter. “And they told me it’s not reviewable, which made no sense. . . . Then the very next play, same thing, Schroder throws his arms back, scratching me and scratched my eye and nose and they slapped me in the face. But no call. It is what it is.”

JAYSON TATUM has developed quite a second half feel over the last two games. He scored two points from the line in the first half Thursday night, before rebounding with a 10-point second half.

Saturday night, after a scoreless 0 for 4 first half, the rookie was even stronger – with all 14 of his points in the third, including a pair of go-ahead baskets and the Celtics’ last 10 points of the quarter.

NFL notebook: Cutler dealing with concussion

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Jay Cutler said concussions are something he knows have to be taken seriously, and that he knows they can get trickier to deal with over time.

The Miami Dolphins (4-6) have plenty of problems, and the status of their starting quarterback is now among the foremost entries on that list.

Cutler got a concussion – at least his third since 2010 – in a 30-20 loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now a reeling team has a big question to deal with as it prepares to visit the New England Patriots next week.

It was not a game to remember for Cutler, who was picked off three times in the first half and was slow to get up after taking a big hit from defensive end Ryan Russell just before halftime. He stayed in for the final play of the half but didn’t return for the second half.

THE NFL has extended its commitment to Mexico by announcing that the league will play a game there each year from 2019-21.

The agreement was announced shortly before the Oakland Raiders took on the New England Patriots in Mexico City in the second game of a three-year deal that expires after next season.

The league did not specify where the games from the new agreement will be played or what teams will participate. There’s a new stadium in Monterrey that could host a game.

There also has been no announcement about which teams will play in Mexico next season.
