AJ McCarron overcame a rough start and threw a pair of touchdown passes Sunday, rallying the Cincinnati Bengals to a 24-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens that kept them in the running for a playoff bye. The Bengals matched the best record in franchise history — they also won 12 games during the 1981 and 1988 seasons when they reached the Super Bowl. The AFC North champions wasted a chance to clinch the No. 2 seed when they lost in Denver 20-17 on Monday night. The Ravens  completed a season that went sour early with close losses and more injuries than any other team in the league. Jeremy Hill ran for 96 yards and put the Bengals in control by breaking through the line for a 38-yard score on a fourth-and-1 play in the third quarter. [more...]

DeMarcus Ware beat AJ McCarron to a fumbled snap in overtime, sending the Denver Broncos into the playoffs with a 20-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night. Ware’s recovery followed a 37-yard field goal by Brandon McManus, whose shanked 45-yarder at the end of regulation made necessary the extra drama. The Broncos overcame a 14-0 first-half deficit in clinching their fifth consecutive playoff berth and denying the Bengals their first road win on a Monday night since 1990. Cincinnati also blew a chance to earn a bye in the playoffs. [more...]

Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes for Kansas City, and the game clock finally stopped Johnny Manziel as the Chiefs held on to beat the Cleveland Browns 17-13 on Sunday. Smith threw for 125 yards while running for 54, helping Kansas City clinch a playoff berth when Pittsburgh lost to Baltimore moments after his own game ended. The Chiefs jumped out to a 17-3 halftime lead Sunday, but their offense became listless over the final two quarters, just as Manziel was pumping some life into the Browns. The former Heisman Trophy winner led Cleveland to 10 straight points, then took over at his 30 with 1:52 left and no timeouts. The Browns picked up three first downs, and Manziel hit Darius Jennings on fourth-and-10 from the Chiefs 32. But time expired before Manziel could get another snap off. [more...]

Braxton Miller scored two touchdowns, including an electrifying 53-yard run, and No. 1 Ohio State pulled away from Virginia Tech for a season-opening 42-24 victory on last night. Cardale Jones, whose status as the starter was not known until he came out for the first offensive series, threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score as Ohio State avenged a 35-21 home loss to Virginia Tech last season and earned its 14th straight win overall. The Hokies, meanwhile, lost more than the game, with quarterback Michael Brewer shelved by a left shoulder injury in the third quarter. Brewer is key to Virginia Tech’s hope for a resurgent season.

Nolan Arenado, Ben Paulsen and Carlos Gonzalez each homered in a 10-run third inning Sunday to help the Colorado Rockies beat Cincinnati 17-7. It was a big afternoon for Paulsen, who finished with a career-high four hits that included a triple and two solo homers. Gonzalez also had two homers and drove in a career-best six runs. Colorado had eight hits in the third, including back-to-back homers by Arenado and Paulsen, to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 12-4 lead. The last time the Rockies scored double-digits in an inning was April 27, 2012, when they had 11 runs against the New York Mets. Michael Lorenzen was roughed up for eight runs in 2 1-3 innings. He allowed two of Colorado’s five homers. [more...]

Reds

The Reds designated struggling reliever Kevin Gregg for assignment to the minors on Monday before the start of the series against Atlanta. Cincinnati had the NL’s worst bullpen in the second half of last season. The Reds signed Gregg to a minor league deal in the offseason, and he made the team on a $1.5 million major league contract. Gregg was 0-2 with a 10.13 ERA in 11 relief appearances, giving up 12 earned runs and three homers in 10 2/3 innings. The Reds called up right-handed reliever Pedro Villarreal from Triple-A Louisville to take his place. [more...]

Derrick Rose scored 25 points leading the Chicago Bulls to a 99-92 victory over the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals last night. Looking like the MVP he was before being slowed by knee injuries, Rose helped the Bulls swipe home-court advantage from the Cavs, who were missing starters Kevin Love and J.R. Smith. Kyrie Irving scored 30 points and LeBron James added 19 and 15 rebounds for Cleveland, playing its first game without Love, who was lost for the remainder of the postseason with a shoulder injury. Game 2 is Wednesday night. [more...]
