Eagles looking to move into tie for 1st

PHILADELPHIA (AP) There's several reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles have been inconsistent on offense this season.

Now isn't the time for excuses.

Despite an up-and-down offense that showed up last week only to see the defense collapse, the Eagles (5-7) still control their playoff hopes. They would win the NFC East if they win their last four games.


Bears LB Smith will miss rest of season

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears played almost all of their 31-24 win Thursday over the Dallas Cowboys without injured linebacker Roquan Smith, and now they'll have to finish the season without him.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said on Monday that Smith suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the win and will go on season-ending injured reserve.


Cowboys waive K Maher, sign Forbath

FRISCO, Texas (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have waived struggling kicker Brett Maher and replaced him with eight-year veteran Kai Forbath.

Maher is the only kicker in NFL history with three field goals of at least 60 yards, but the Cowboys couldn't count on him for the shorter ones that are often more critical.


Colts to put K Vinatieri on IR

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri will finish this season on injured reserve with an injured left knee.

The 46-year-old Vinatieri hopes his stellar career ends differently.


Titans set for showdown with Texans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Coach Mike Vrabel told his Tennessee Titans what happens in the second half of an NFL season is what matters most.

They listened carefully.


Panthers to stick with Allen at QB

CHARLOTTE, NC. (AP) The Panthers have lost five straight games and are out of playoff contention, which would appear to be a perfect time to get a look at rookie third-round draft pick Will Grier.

But that won't happen - at least not this week.


49ers pull out 48-46 win at New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo decisively delivered a fourth-down pass to George Kittle with time running out, and the veteran tight end vigorously galloped up the sideline, embracing an opportunity to defiantly jerk his head back and forth as a Saints defender grabbed his face mask.

"Run through people, but have a good time doing it," Kittle said of his mindset, which seemed to be contagious across his team.


KC takes AFC West with win over Pats

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Patrick Mahomes got some help from the Chiefs defense to hold off the New England Patriots and wrap up the division title.

Kansas City clinched the AFC West when Bashaud Breeland knocked away Tom Brady's fourth-down pass attempt to Julian Edelman in the end zone and the Chiefs beat New England 23-16 on Sunday.


Rams stay in hunt, end Seahawks' run

LOS ANGELES (AP) When Todd Gurley flattened Tre Flowers with a brutal stiff arm on his path to Los Angeles' final touchdown, the Rams delivered a clear message right to the face of the Seahawks and the NFL.

Although it's too soon to say whether the Rams solved their offensive problems in time to make the playoffs, the team that dazzled the league in the past two seasons will be dangerous down the stretch.


Ravens beat Bills to clinch playoff spot

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Coach John Harbaugh happily discovered it's going to take more than clinching a second consecutive playoff berth to impress Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

Whether it's the sign of a team stinging from the memories of last year's AFC wild-card playoff loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, or simply the fact that there are three games left in the season, Harbaugh didn't see many signs of celebration after the Ravens became the conference's first team to secure a postseason berth following a 24-17 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
