Chiefs overcome 17-point deficit, beat Chargers 33-27 in OT

Kansas City's Spencer Ware spikes the ball after scoring a touchdown during the second half of Sunday afternoon's overtime win over the Chargers, 33-27, at Arrowhead Stadium.

Philip Rivers threw for 243 yards and a touchdown, and second-year running back Melvin Gordon scored the first two TDs of his career.

San Diego wide receiver Keenan Allen has suffered an ACL tear in his right knee.

Lions 39, Colts 35: Matthew Stafford took advantage of one last chance Sunday, and Matt Prater redeemed himself with a 43-yard field goal with 8 seconds to give Detroit a victory at Indianapolis.

Chiefs linebacker Sam Barrington left in the second half with a hamstring injury.

Israel's Shimon Peres hospitalized after stroke
Former Israeli President and Prime Minister Shimon Peres suffered a stroke on Tuesday, according to a statement from his office. Just hours before the stroke, Peres had uploaded a video to his Facebook account urging the public to buy locally-made products.

Alex Smith, normally stoic, squirmed out of a pile in the end zone, got to his feet and let out a roar.

The end result probably wasn't all that surprising to those who paid no attention to what happened during the game and just saw the final score.

The Chiefs were down 24-3 with just over six minutes to go in the third quarter when they rattled off three touchdowns and a field goal to force overtime.

It took Kansas City 10 plays to march 75 yards in overtime, and Smith finished it when he chose to keep the ball rather than pitch it when the smallest of creases opened.

That said, the Chiefs - who acquired Smith for two second-round picks in 2013 after San Francisco elected to dump him in favor of Colin Kaepernick - are certainly glad things worked out the way they did. Jeremy Maclin took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the fourth quarter in the Chiefs win over the Chargers, but Andy Reid said he passed the protocol. I'm proud of the way that they handled it. Melvin Gordon scored his first two National Football League touchdowns as he looks to bounce back from a miserable rookie season. But the Chargers were unable to keep any drives going in the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs were charging to their NFL-leading 11th consecutive regular-season victory.

Autopsy planned for Clarion girl found dead
Her father suspected she had been abducted before the grim discovery of her body confirmed his worst fears. State police did not elaborate how Shevy died or how she and said her death is still under investigation.

"You got to give them credit".

"I think every guy knows how bad we played, how poorly we played in the first half, and we're not going to get away with it all the time", Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. And we've also got to be smart with it so we've got him for the long haul. It's not acceptable to be up by 24-3 and lose the game.

The Jaguars had a shot to pull off the upset when quarterback Blake Bortles led his offense to Green Bay's 14-yard line with 23 seconds remaining before a short pass to receiver Allen Hurns on fourth-and-1 ended the team's last gasp. It was his 45-yard catch and run late in the third quarter that set up Kansas City's first touchdown.

The Chargers also blew a 21-point lead in losing McCoy's debut as Chargers coach in 2013.

The San Diego Chargers season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday turned out to be a stunning game.

Mexico govt: Treasury minister resigns after Trump visit
However, Trump's visit nearly immediately caused public relations problems, when he appeared later that day at a rally in Arizona. First, it would ban the finance ministry from using public funds on any project that is "against the country's interest".

While running back Danny Woodhead led the Chargers in receptions previous year and tight end Antonio Gates was third on the team, behind Allen, Stevie Johnson's 45 receptions were fourth and Dontrelle Inman was next among receivers with 35 catches.
