MONDAY RESULTS – December 26

NEW YORK – The NBA says two calls were missed in the final moments of Cleveland’s win over Golden State on Sunday, both of which aided the Cavaliers. The league says LeBron James should have been assessed a technical foul for deliberately hanging on the rim after his dunk with 1:43 remaining. The NBA also felt that Cavaliers forward Richard Jefferson should have been called for fouling the Warriors’ Kevin Durant on the game’s final play.

UNDATED – Villanova and UCLA remain 1-2 in the latest Associated Press men’s basketball poll, with the 12-0 Wildcats claiming 56 of 65 first-place votes from the national media panel. Kansas, Baylor and Duke round out the top 5, and Louisville moved up four spots to sixth following its three-point win over Kentucky. Gonzaga is seventh, ahead of Kentucky, North Carolina and Creighton.

UNDATED – Simone Biles has been named The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year after tying a women’s gymnastics Olympic record with four gold medals. Biles picked up 31 of 59 votes from a panel of U.S. editors and news directors. U.S. swimmer Katie Ledecky finished second with 20 votes after a four-gold, one-silver performance in the pool in Brazil.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Lions’ playoff berth is in jeopardy after Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott each scored two touchdowns in the Dallas Cowboys’ 42-21 win over Detroit. Bryant threw his first career touchdown pass, Elliott ran for a 55-yard TD and Dak Prescott completed 15 of 20 for 212 yards, three scores and no interceptions. Detroit will need to beat Green Bay on Sunday to win the NFC North, but the Lions can also wrap up a playoff berth if the Giants knock off Washington.

SUNDAY RESULTS – January 1

(N-F-L football)

UNDATED – The N-F-C playoff participants were finalized when the New York Giants beat Washington 19-10, eliminating the Redskins from the postseason and clinching berths for Detroit and Green Bay. The Packers took the N-F-C North title as Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns in a 31-24 win over the Lions. Matt Ryan also had four touchdown passes and the Atlanta Falcons wrapped up a first-round bye and an 11-5 season with a 38-32 triumph over New Orleans.

UNDATED – New England clinched home-field advantage throughout the A-F-C playoffs with a 35-14 win over the Miami Dolphins, who enter the postseason as the sixth seed in the conference. Kansas City overtook Oakland for the A-F-C West title and home-field advantage by beating San Diego, 37-27 while the Raiders were absorbing a 24-6 loss at Denver. Pittsburgh knocked off Cleveland 27-24 in overtime, giving the Browns a 1-15 record and the No. 1 pick in the upcoming N-F-L draft.

DENVER – The Denver Broncos will hold a news conference today to formally announce Gary Kubiak’s resignation as head coach. Kubiak told his players of the decision following yesterday’s win over the Raiders. He went 24-11 in two years at the helm, winning Super Bowl 50 with a 24-10 win over Carolina last February.

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers will be interviewing head coaches while deciding whether to move to Los Angeles. Mike McCoy was fired following the Chargers’ loss to Kansas City in what may have been the final N-F-L game in San Diego. McCoy was 27-37 in four seasons at the helm, missing the playoffs the last three years and finishing last each of the last two years.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The San Francisco 49ers have fired coach Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke following a 2-14 season, matching the worst record in team history. The Niners are 7-25 since cutting ties with Jim Harbaugh, including a 5-11 mark under Jim Tomsula last season. It’s the first time in nearly four decades that an N-F-L team has fired coaches in successive seasons after just one-year tenures.
