Carson Wentz threw four more touchdowns as the Philadelphia Eagles trounced the Denver Broncos 51-23.....

     UNDATED (AP) - Carson Wentz threw four more touchdowns as the Philadelphia Eagles trounced the Denver Broncos 51-23. Wentz was 15 of 27 for 199 yards before taking a seat on the bench. He has thrown 17 of his league-leading 23 touchdown passes in the last five games. The Eagles picked up their seventh straight win and improved to an NFL-best 8-1.
 
     Corey Clement had three touchdowns for the Eagles, who didn't allow Denver into the end zone until the fourth quarter. Jay Ajayi gained 77 yards on only eight carries, including a 46-yard scoring burst that made it 21-9 just before halftime.
 
     Brock Osweiler threw for 208 yards, two TDs and two interceptions in his first game since being reacquired by the Broncos.
 
     Denver is 3-5 following its fourth straight loss.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jeff Teague had 18 points and 12 assists, and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Charlotte Hornets 112-94 on Sunday night for their fifth straight victory.
 
     Andrew Wiggins led Minnesota with 20 points, while Karl-Anthony Towns, Jimmy Butler, Gorgui Dieng and Jamal Crawford all reached double figures in scoring.
 
     The Timberwolves moved to 7-3 on the young season, just a half-game behind Houston for the top spot in the Western Conference. The last time Minnesota won five games in a row was Jan. 2-10, 2009.
 
     Cody Zeller led Charlotte with 16 points, while Marvin Williams, Dwight Howard and Jeremy Lamb each scored 13 points for the Hornets. All-Star Kemba Walker was limited to nine points on 4-for-15 shooting.
 
     Minnesota pulled out to a double-digit lead on the strength of a 12-2 run midway through the second quarter. The flurry culminated in three 3-pointers on three straight shots. Teague hit the first two; on the next possession, he called for the ball at the top of the key, and when Howard closed hard on Teague, the Timberwolves' assist leader slipped a pass to Butler, who drained a 3 from the wing.
 
     Teague later added another 3-pointer and a driving layup for 11 points in the quarter as Minnesota led 68-51 at the half.
 
     Wiggins scored nine straight points in the third quarter on a trio of mid-range jump shots and a three-point play, and Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau was able to rely heavily on his bench the rest of the way as Minnesota played the second half of a back-to-back stretch.

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. have wrapped up championship spots in NASCAR's finale with their 1-2 finish at Texas Motor Speedway.
 
     Harvick went around the outside of Truex for the lead with 10 laps remaining to win Sunday's Cup series race. Truex had led 107 laps and was still up front until his bobble on the backstretch allowed Harvick to take the lead.
 
     Harvick and Kyle Busch clinched championship shots with their wins during the third round of the playoffs. That leaves only one spot up for grabs next week at Phoenix.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Ezekiel Elliott took advantage of his latest courthouse reprieve by running for the go-ahead touchdown and finishing with 93 yards in the Cowboys' 28-17 comeback over the Chiefs.
 
     The Cowboys wasted a 14-3 lead and trailed 17-14 before Elliott ran in from the Kansas City 2 in the third quarter. Terrance Williams had 141 yards on a career-high nine catches for the 5-3 Cowboys, including a 56-yarder that set up Dak Prescott's 10-yard TD run with 13 seconds left in the first half.
 
     Tyreek Hill had a 57-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in which he eluded seven Dallas defenders inside the 25, but the Chiefs ended a nine-game road winning streak and fell to 6-3.
 
     Also in the NFL:
 
     - The Rams shredded through the Giants' defense while Jared Goff set career highs with four TD tosses and 311 yards passing in a 51-17 laugher at the Meadowlands. Todd Gurley had a pair of scoring runs as Los Angeles won for the fifth time in six games to improve to 6-2, the team's best record at the midway point since 2001. The Rams turned three Giants turnovers into 17 points and also scored a TD on a drive that followed a blocked punt.
 
     - The Rams have sole possession of first place in the NFC West after the Seahawks gave up a one-yard scoring run to Rob Kelley with 59 seconds left in the Redskins' 17-14 triumph at Seattle. The Seahawks had just grabbed a 14-10 lead on Russell Wilson's second TD pass of the fourth quarter, a 30-yard strike to Doug Baldwin with 1:34 to play. Seattle fell to 5-3 despite outgaining the 4-4 Redskins 437 yards to 244.
 
     - The Saints' winning streak climbed to six games as Drew Brees was 22-of-27 for 263 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-10 rout of the Buccaneers. Alvin Kamara grabbed a 33-yard TD pass from Brees and also scored on a six-yard run to help New Orleans hand the 2-6 Bucs their fifth consecutive loss. Kamara finished with 172 yards from scrimmage for the Saints, who also scored on Justin Hardee's seven-yard return of his own blocked punt.
 
     - The 6-3 Panthers remain a half-game behind the NFC South-leading Saints after Cam Newton rushed for 86 yards and a TD in a 20-17 victory against Atlanta. Carolina ran for 201 yards, including a career-high 66 and a touchdown from rookie Christian McCaffrey. Devin Funchess had 86 yards on five receptions in his first game as Carolina's No. 1 receiver after the team traded Kelvin Benjamin earlier in the week.
 
     - The Jaguars are 5-3 after holding the Bengals to a season-low 148 yards in a 23-7 win against Cincinnati. Blake Bortles threw for 259 yards and a touchdown to help the Jaguars stay tied with Tennessee for first place in the AFC South. Marqise Lee had his first TD reception of the season and Jaydon Mickens returned a punt 63 yards for a score that put the game away in the fourth quarter.
 
     - The Titans picked up their third straight win as Marcus Mariota passed for 218 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-20 decision over the Ravens. Derrick Henry ran for a 1-yard TD and safety Kevin Byard intercepted two passes for the 5-3 Titans, giving the second-year pro five picks over his past two games. Tennessee also sacked Joe Flacco twice and scored 13 points off Byard's first interception and a shanked punt to drop Baltimore to 4-5.
 
     - T.Y. Hilton had 175 yards receiving with two touchdowns to help the Colts beat the Texans 20-14 and end a three-game skid. Jacoby Brissett threw for 308 yards filling in for Andrew Luck, who was placed on injured reserve on Thursday and will miss the season after having shoulder surgery in January. Tom Savage threw a fourth-quarter touchdown pass for Houston, but he was just 19 of 44 for 219 yards in his first game since starting quarterback DeShaun Watson sustained a season-ending knee injury.
 
     - Adrian Peterson provided the spark in the Cardinals' 20-10 victory against the winless 49ers, carrying a career-high 37 times for 159 yards. Drew Stanton threw two scoring passes in the opening half of his first start of the season in place of the injured Carson Palmer. C.J. Beathard ran for a touchdown and was 24 of 51 for 294 yards while new Niners quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo stayed on the sidelines.
 
     - Derek Carr threw for 300 yards and Marshawn Lynch scored on a 22-yard run as the Raiders knocked off the Dolphins 27-24 at Miami. Carr went 21 of 30 with one touchdown and one interception to help Oakland end Miami's string of 12 straight wins in games decided by seven points of less. Jay Cutler connected on his first 16 psases following a one-game absence and finished with 311 yards and three scores, but the 4-4 Dolphins lost their second in a row.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have continued their disappointing start with an eyebrow-raising home loss to the worst team in the NBA's Eastern Conference.
 
     Dennis Schroeder scored 28 points and the injury-riddled Atlanta Hawks ended an eight-game losing streak with a 117-115 win against the Cavs. The Hawks blew most of a 16-point lead in the second half before earning their first victory since their season opener against Dallas. Schroeder scored 11 straight points in the third quarter to keep Atlanta ahead.
 
     LeBron James had 26 points and 13 assists after erupting for an NBA season-high 57 points in Friday's win at Washington. Kyle Korver scored 19 of his 23 points in the final period before Cleveland suffered its fifth loss in seven games.
 
     Checking out the rest of Sunday's NBA schedule:

Marcus Morris had 14 points in his second game of the season to help the Eastern Conference leaders stay unbeaten since their 0-2 start.
 
     - LaMarcus Aldridge dropped in 21 points and the Spurs outscored the Suns 34-13 in the third quarter to pull away in a 112-95 win over Phoenix. Patty Mills scored 11 of his 17 points in the pivotal third period to help San Antonio win its second straight since a four-game skid.
 
     - James Harden hit his first seven 3-point tries and scored a career-high 56 points while adding 13 assists in just 35 minutes as the Rockets clobbered the Jazz 137-110. Eric Gordon scored 20 points, Trevor Ariza had 14 and Nene scored 13 off the bench in Houston's third consecutive win.
 
     - The Timberwolves are 7-3 after Jeff Teague contributed 18 points and 12 assists to their fifth straight victory, 112-94 over the Hornets. Andrew Wiggins had a team-high 20 points for Minnesota, which hadn't won five in a row since January 2009.
 
     - The Trail Blazers rode Damian Lillard's 36 points and 13 assists to a 103-99 victory against the Thunder. Jusuf Nurkic had 25 points on 11 of 15 shooting and hauled in eight rebounds for Portland.
 
     - Kristaps Porzingis scored a career-high 40 points and the Knicks came back from 19 down to beat the Pacers 108-101. Porzingis added eight rebounds and six blocked shots in his seventh 30-point performance in nine games this season.
 
     - The Wizards were 107-96 winners at Toronto behind Bradley Beal's 38 points. Otto Porter chipped in 19 points to help Washington win without John Wall, who sprained his left shoulder in Friday's loss to Cleveland.
 
     - The Lakers won for the third time in four games as Brook Lopez hit for 21 points and Brandon Ingram added 20 in a 107-102 verdict over the Grizzlies. Rookie Kyle Kuzma had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Los Angeles, which squandered most of a 22-point lead.
 
     - The Heat coughed up a 25-point lead before James Johnson drained a pair of free throws with 8.7 seconds left to put Miami ahead to stay in a 104-101 triumph over the Clippers. Hassan Whiteside had 21 points and 17 rebounds for the Heat.

     Leddy and forward Jordan Eberle each scored twice as the Isles whipped Colorado 6-4. Leddy headed a New York blueline that provided four goals and eight points, with Johnny Boychuk and Scott Mayfield each adding a goal and an assist.
 
     The Islanders also went 2-for-2 on the power play, leaving them 7-for-16 in their last four games after opening the season 2-for-33.
