LOS ANGELES (AP) Two sources familiar with the injury tell The Associated Press that doctors believe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in a win over the Rams on Sunday and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs.
Wentz, a favorite in the NFL MVP race, will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the severity of the injury. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information. Wentz left the stadium on a cart with a brace on his left leg.
"I don't know anything until we evaluate him (Monday)," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said.
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles might have lost star quarterback Carson Wentz for the rest of the season even as they clinched the NFC East title.
Wentz threw for 291 yards and four touchdowns before leaving with an injured left knee and Jake Elliott kicked the go-ahead 33-yard field goal with 3:45 left for the Eagles, who beat the Los Angeles Rams 43-35 in a thriller Sunday to clinch their first division title since 2013.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Cam Newton delivered the body blow and Jonathan Stewart provided the knockout punch for Carolina.
Newton's 62-yard run set up Stewart's 1-yard touchdown leap - his third TD run of the day - with 1:47 remaining to lift the Panthers to a 31-24 victory Sunday, snapping the Minnesota Vikings' eight-game win streak.
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.
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.
Makes perfect sense this would be the week they'd turn everything around.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The snow sure suits Shady.
LeSean McCoy scored on a 21-yard run with 1:33 left in overtime to secure the Buffalo Bills' 13-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in a wintry, white-out setting best suited for snow shoes and sled dogs.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) With the clock running down in a tie game, the Detroit Lions didn't have any qualms about the ball being in Matthew Stafford's injured throwing hand.
They've come to expect their quarterback to find a way to lead them to victory in those situations, and Stafford didn't disappoint Sunday, when he threw for 381 yards and set up Matt Prater for a 46-yard field goal in the closing seconds to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-21.
