PHILADELPHIA (AP) Carson Wentz threw a touchdown pass a few plays after suffering an injury that could ruin a special season for the Philadelphia Eagles, and then stuck around to greet teammates and celebrate a division-clinching victory with them.

Steelers rally by Ravens to clinch North

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ryan Shazier was everywhere. His helmet rested on the Pittsburgh Steelers' bench. His jersey too. His face and #Shalieve stitched on specially-designed cleats.

Chargers beat Redskins, win 4th in row

CARSON, Calif. (AP) Although the Los Angeles Chargers' offense is constantly running over its opponents these days, Philip Rivers wasn't sure how he ended up as a lead blocker for receiver Travis Benjamin on a 22-yard reverse run .

"Gracious, I've never been this far down the field in my life since high school," Rivers thought to himself as he looked for somebody to hit - and his coaches cringed.

Chiefs hold off Raiders to end skid at 4

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs had lost four straight games, suspended arguably their best defensive player and reached such a nadir offensively that Andy Reid recently turned over play-calling duties to his coordinator.
