Reeling Pens Blow 4-1 Lead; Fall To Sabres
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jake Eichel's shot squirted past Casey DeSmith 45 seconds into overtime as the surging Buffalo Sabres rallied to beat the struggling Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Monday night. The Sabres won their sixth straight by overcoming a three-goal deficit. Casey Mittelstadt tied it with just over 9 minutes to go in regulation and Eichel won it with a shot from the right circle that found its way by DeSmith. Tage Thompson, Zach Bogosian and Casey Nelson also scored for Buffalo, which has won six straight for the first time since the 2009-10 season. Carter Hutton withstood an early flurry from Pittsburgh and finished with 36 saves. Tanner Pearson had a goal and an assist for the Penguins, his first points with Pittsburgh since being acquired in a trade with Los Angeles last week. Phil Kessel picked up his 10th for the Penguins and Jake Guentzel and Derick Brassard also scored. DeSmith made 35 stops but spent most of the final 30 minutes under heavy duress from the Sabres. Pittsburgh has won just once in its last 10 games.

Rams Outlast Chiefs 54-51
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jared Goff threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Everett for the go-ahead score with 1:49 to play, and the Los Angeles Rams outlasted the Kansas City Chiefs for a 54-51 victory on Monday night in a high-octane NFL offensive showdown that somehow surpassed the hype. Patrick Mahomes threw six touchdown passes in his latest jaw-dropping performance for the Chiefs (9-2), but he also threw two interceptions in the final 1:18 as the Rams (10-1) hung on to win the highest-scoring Monday night game ever played and the first NFL game with two 50-point performances. Goff passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns, while Marcus Peters and Lamarcus Joyner came up with late interceptions as the Rams held on. The highest-scoring game in the league this season was an offensive fantasia featuring 1,001 combined yards and ingenious scheming from mastermind coaches Andy Reid and Sean McVay.

Redskins Shopping For A Quarterback
UNDATED (AP) - The Washington Redskins auditioned following Alex Smith's gruesome leg injury.
Former first-round pick Mark Sanchez is the new No. 2 behind Colt McCoy. The Redskins also considered signing Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates, EJ Manuel and Josh Johnson before putting Sanchez back in the NFC East. Smith broke his right fibula and tibia on a sack during Sunday's loss to Houston.
Washington leads their division at 6-4, just one game ahead of the rejuvenated Dallas Cowboys. The two teams square off in Arlington, Texas, on Thanksgiving Day.

Yankees Land Paxton From Seattle
UNDATED (AP) - The New York Yankees have acquired a talented left-hander for their starting rotation.
The Mariners are sending James Paxton to the Bronx for three prospects, putting him in a rotation that is expected to include right-handers Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka and left-hander CC Sabathia.
Paxton turned 30 on Nov. 6 and went 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA in 28 starts last season, including a no-hitter at Toronto on May 8. He is eligible for free agency this winter and can become a free agent after the 2020 season. The M's get left-hander Justus Sheffield, right-hander Erik Swanson and outfielder Dom Thompson-Williams. Sheffield is rated among the top minor league prospects and appeared in three games for New York last season.

College Hoops; Blue Devils, Tigers Win At Maui
UNDATED (AP) - Top-ranked Duke breezed through its opening-round game at the Maui Invitational.
R.J. Barrett scored 20 points and the Blue Devils shot 52 percent from the field in a 90-64 pounding of San Diego State. Cam Reddish had 16 points for Duke, which shot 10-for-25 from 3-point range and improved to 16-0 all time at Maui. Next up for Duke is No. 8 Auburn, which needed overtime to knock off Xavier, 88-79. Bryce Brown scored 26 points and Jared Harper added 25 as the Tigers moved to 4-0.
