SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Given a second chance due to a penalty, rookie Josh Lambo kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the San Diego Chargers to a 30-27 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, snapping a two-game losing streak.

Lambo was wide right on a 39-yard attempt with 2 seconds left, but Cleveland's Tramon Williams was whistled for offside. Lambo then hit his third field goal of the game.

The Browns (1-3) had tied it at 27 on Josh McCown's 1-yard pass to Gary Barnidge with 2:09 to play and a 2-point conversion pass to Taylor Gabriel. That score was set up when the Browns won a challenge of McCown's 19-yard pass to Barnidge that originally was ruled incomplete.

Philip Rivers was 23 of 38 for 358 yards and three touchdowns for San Diego (2-2). McCown was 32 of 41 for 356 yards and two scores.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- A man from Springfield, Missouri, collapsed in a restroom at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday during a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals and was pronounced dead at a hospital, a Bengals spokesman said.

The man's identity wasn't released, pending notification of his family. Bengals spokesman Bob Bedinghaus said the fan had some type of pre-existing medical issue.

Police and paramedics tried to revive the man at the stadium. He was taken to Christ Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Bedinghaus said.

The Bengals beat the Chiefs 36-21.


PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates clinched the home field in the NL wild card-game, beating the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday behind J.A. Happ's stellar outing and Pedro Alvarez's long homer.

The Pirates (98-64) locked up the right to host the Chicago Cubs (97-65) Wednesday night in a winner-take-all playoff, with a victory on the final day of the regular season.

Despite having the second-best record in the major leagues, the Pirates finished second to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. Pittsburgh will host the wild-card game for the third straight year after beating Cincinnati in 2013 and losing to the San Francisco Giants last season.

The Pirates had 20 straight losing seasons, the longest streak in major North American professional sports history, before their current run of postseason appearances.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Danny Salazar finished his first season as a full-time starter on a positive note, sending the Cleveland Indians to a 3-1 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday in their 2015 finale.

Salazar (14-10) gave up one run 5 1-3 innings to win for just the second time in six starts. The right-hander began the season at Triple-A Columbus, a demotion that served as a wake-up call for the 25-year-old, who bounced back and tied Carlos Carrasco for the team lead in wins.

Bryan Shaw worked out of a jam in the eighth, and Cody Allen got three outs for his 34th save.

The Indians battled inconsistency all season and finished 81-80, only the second time they were above .500 after April 9th.

Boston starter Rick Porcello (9-15) came up short in his bid to hit double-digit wins for the seventh straight season. He allowed 10 hits in seven innings.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton added to his streak of impressive game and big plays, throwing a 55-yard touchdown pass on the run, and the Cincinnati Bengals stayed unbeaten with a 36-21 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Bengals (4-0) matched the third-best start in franchise history, two wins shy of the club record.

Dalton has been the thread throughout the wins, ascending to the top of the AFC passer list. He had another spot-on day, completing 17 of 24 for 321 yards with the long touchdown pass to Brandon Tate during a scramble.

It was another rough day all around for Kansas City (1-3). Alex Smith was sacked five times, the Chiefs settled for Cairo Santos' club-record seven field goals, and the defense couldn't keep up with another one of the NFL's top passers.

MIAMI (AP) -- Don Shula was head coach of the Miami Dolphins for 26 years before he retired after the 1995 season. Dan Campbell has become the Dolphins' ninth coach in the 20 years since Shula left.

Campbell is the interim coach after serving as tight ends coach. He replaces Joe Philbin, who has been fired after three-plus seasons and a 24-28 record. The dismissal comes after Sunday's 27-14 loss to the New York Jets dropped the Dolphins to 1-3. They haven't won since their season opener.

Miami never finished better than 8-8 in their three full seasons under Philbin. The Dolphins are on course to miss the playoffs for the 13th time in the past 14 years, and the seventh season in a row. It has been 23 years since they reached the AFC championship game.

Campbell has been with the Dolphins since 2010.


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed right guard Brandon Linder on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

The team says Linder will have surgery later this week to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The second-year starter injured his shoulder in practice two weeks ago and aggravated it in a win against Miami on Sept. 27. He was inactive for Sunday's loss at Indianapolis.

The Jaguars signed linebacker James-Michael Johnson to the active roster. Johnson has appeared in 43 career games, spending time with Cleveland, Kansas City and Tampa Bay. The 1-3 Jaguars play at the 1-3 Buccaneers on Sunday.


WASHINGTON (AP) -- It didn't take long for the Washington Nationals to begin their housecleaning following a disappointing season.

The Nationals have fired manager Matt Williams and his coaching staff after a season in which the team went from World Series favorite to failing to make the playoffs. The move comes one day after the Nats finished second in the National League East at 83-79, seven games behind the division-winning New York Mets.

Williams spent just two years at the helm after replacing Davey Johnson. Williams was voted NL Manager of the Year in 2014 after guiding Washington to the NL's best record. The team's showing last year prompted the Nationals to exercise his 2016 contract option and led to high expectations. But the Nats never got more than 10 games over .500, and they eventually saw a 4 1/2-game lead become a 9 1/2-game deficit within 69 days.

Williams was 179-145 at the helm.


UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Yankees' playoff roster won't include CC Sabathia (suh-BATH'-ee-uh).

The lefty starter will miss the postseason after checking into an alcohol rehab center. The 2007 AL Cy Young Award winner said he took the step to receive the care he needs and become a better person.

Sabathia helped the Yankees win the 2009 World Series, going 19-8 during the regular season and winning 21 games the following year. Injuries have contributed to his diminished numbers over the past three seasons.

Sabathia was 6-10 with a 4.73 ERA this year after posting a 5.28 earned run average in just eight starts for the 2014 Yanks.

In other major league news:

-- Billy Eppler has been introduced as the Angels' new general manager, bringing the Southern California native back home after 11 years in the Yankees' front office. The former UConn pitcher moved up from a scouting position to GM Brian Cashman's valued assistant during his time in the Bronx. Angels owner Arte Moreno also confirmed that Mike Scioscia (SOH'-shuh) will return for his 17th season next year, the longest tenure among current big league managers.

-- The Oakland Athletics have promoted David Forst to general manager and kicked Billy Beane up to executive vice president of baseball operations. Forst just completed his 16th year with the low-budget franchise and 12th as assistant GM. Beane and Forst have regularly split up their duties in such a way that Forst has better relationships with some agents and opposing GMs.

-- MLB said it managed to cut six minutes from the average time of a nine-inning game this season, when it adopted some speedup rules. STATS said Monday that the season average ended at 2 hours, 56 minutes. While the average dropped to 2:53 in the first half of the season, it was back at 3:00 after the All-Star break.

PHOENIX (AP) -- Former NBA center Neal Walk has died at 67.

Phoenix drafted Walk in 1969 after losing the coin flip with Milwaukee to draft Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He averaged 20.2 points and 12.4 rebounds for the 1972-73 Suns and later played for the New Orleans Jazz and New York Knicks.

Walk had health problems over the years and his condition deteriorated in recent weeks. He underwent surgery 28 years ago to remove a tumor on his spine, an operation that left him unable to use his legs.
