HOUSTON (AP) -- Andy Dalton threw for 233 yards and a touchdown and A.J. Green had 121 yards receiving to give the Cincinnati Bengals a 22-13 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

The Bengals (7-3-1) led throughout, but Houston (5-6) cut the lead to 3 late in the third quarter before Cincinnati tacked on two field goals in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

Rookie Jeremy Hill scored on a 2-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter after an interception by Ryan Mallett for Cincinnati's only touchdown of the second half.

Mallett struggled in his second career start, finishing with 189 yards passing and often overthrowing open receivers. Houston's only touchdown came on a 60-yard interception return by Johnathan Joseph in the third quarter.


ATLANTA (AP) -- Brian Hoyer shook off three interceptions, leading the Cleveland Browns down the field in the final minute to set up Billy Cundiff's 37-yard field goal as time expired for a 26-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Taking advantage of the last of Hoyer's picks, the Falcons drove for Matt Bryant's 53-yard field goal with 44 seconds remaining to seize the lead.

But Hoyer completed four straight passes, the last of them to the Falcons 19, and spiked the ball with 5 seconds left. Cundiff trotted on and made his fourth field goal of the game for the Browns (7-4).

Atlanta (4-7), coming in improbably tied for first in the woeful NFC South, dropped to 0-7 against teams outside the division.

Isaiah Crowell scored a pair of touchdowns for the Browns, who also were bolstered by the return of Josh Gordon. He had eight catches for 120 yards.


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- D'Angelo Russell scored 32 points and Shannon Scott set a school record with 16 assists to lead 20th-ranked Ohio State to a 106-48 win against overmatched Sacred Heart on Sunday night.

Russell's total tied the second most for a freshman at Ohio State, trailing only Jared Sullinger's 40 points (along with 13 rebounds) against IUPUI in 2010.

Scott had 11 points to go with his assist total, which broke Aaron Craft's mark, while Jae'Sean Tate and Sam Thompson each had 12 points, Keita Bates-Diop 11 and Marc Loving 10. The Buckeyes (3-0) shot 57 percent from the field. Trey McDonald chipped in with 14 rebounds.

Filip Nowicki had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Pioneers (1-2), who had lost to UMass-Lowell 57-54 -- a team Ohio State pounded 92-55.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Troy Caupain scored 17 points to lead Cincinnati to a 54-49 victory over Eastern Illinois on Sunday night in the first game of the Emerald Coast Classic for both teams.

Trae Anderson made a pair of free throw attempts to tie it at 32. Shaquille Thomas answered with a field goal to give Cincinnati a 34-32 lead with 16:28 to play, and the Bearcats led the rest of the way. Octavius Ellis' layup stretched Cincinnati's lead to 51-42 with 2:21 remaining.

Caupain made 8 of 13 field goals. Ellis finished with seven points, 13 rebounds and four blocks.

Anderson and Reggie Smith scored 12 points, and Chris Olivier had 11 for the Panthers, who shot just 29.5 percent on 18-of-61 shooting from the field.

Cincinnati (3-0) will host N.C. Central next in the tournament, and Eastern Illinois (1-3) plays at Creighton on Tuesday night.


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Jordan Sibert had 20 points and Dyshawn Pierre added 16 as Dayton held off Boston College 65-53 in the third-place game at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Dayton (3-1) led for all but 50 seconds of the game, but had to scrap to hold onto their lead in the closing minutes.

The Flyers shot just 43 percent from the field, but forced 17 Boston College turnovers.

Eddie Odio led Boston College with 11 points. Olivier Hanlan added 10.

In addition to their turnovers, the Eagles (2-3) struggled shooting the ball throughout the game, finishing at just 34 percent.

Boston College hosts Marist on Dec. 1. Dayton hosts UIC on Saturday.


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Noah Robotham had 16 points and Deji Ibitayo 15 as Akron outlasted South Carolina to take third place at the Charleston Classic with a 68-63 victory Sunday.

The Zips (3-1) defeated their second Power Five conference team in this event after opening with a 66-46 win over Southern Cal of the Pac-12 Conference here on Thursday. This time, their Southeastern Conference opponent played them tight throughout, erasing a 12-point second half lead when Laimonas Chatkevicius hit a foul shot to tie things at 55-all with 6:55 remaining.

But Kwan Cheatham had the go-ahead basket as the Zips closed the game on 10-5 run.

Akron had lost to South Carolina twice last year, once in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii on Christmas Day and then a few days later at the Gamecocks' Colonial Life Arena.

Sindarius Thornwell had 13 points to lead South Carolina (2-3).


KENT, Ohio (AP) -- Matt Townsend scored 12 points, including the go-ahead layup with 46 seconds left to help Yale beat Kent State 66-59 in the inaugural Men Against Breast Cancer Classic championship on Sunday.

Kris Brewer made a pair of free throws to give Kent State a 59-58 lead before Townsend's go-ahead shot. Justin Sears made four free throw attempts and Makai Mason hit a pair to cap the scoring.

Jack Montague scored 13 points, and Sears had 12 with nine boards for Yale (4-1). Armani Cotton scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers for the Bulldogs, who shot 50 percent from the field.

Jimmy Hall scored to give Kent State (4-1) its largest lead of the second half, 34-26 with 19:35 remaining. Montague's jumper tied it at 36 with 16:18 remaining, and then neither team led by more than four before the Bulldogs pulled away late. Hall finished with 22 points.

UNDATED (AP) -- It was just another garden-variety, fourth-quarter Mile High miracle for Peyton Manning. Manning directed the Denver Broncos to 22 points in the fourth quarter in orchestrating a 39-36 come-from-behind victory over upset-minded Miami.

Manning completed 28 of 35 passes for 257 yards and four touchdowns, including three to Demaryius Thomas. C.J. Anderson ran for 167 yards and the go-ahead score for the AFC West-leading Broncos.

Manning became the third player in NFL history with touchdown passes in 50 consecutive games. He joined Drew Brees (54) and Tom Brady (52).

In other Week 12 results:

---- The Dallas Cowboys remained the only undefeated NFL team on the road by rallying for a 31-28 victory over the New York Giants at the Meadowlands. Tony Romo hit Dez Bryant with a 13-yard TD pass with 61 seconds left for the winning score at the Meadowlands. The Cowboys are 8-3 overall and 5-0 away from home. Romo tossed four TDs while completing 18 of 26 for 275 yards. The Giants lost their sixth in a row and were officially eliminated from the playoff picture.

-- Josh Huff returned the opening kickoff 107 yards, LeSean McCoy ran for 130 yards and the Philadelphia Eagles blew away the Tennessee Titans 43-24. Mark Sanchez threw for 307 yards and one TD. The 8-3 Eagles now can focus on their first place showdown in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day against the 8-3 Cowboys.

-- Tom Brady threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns in a pass-heavy offense against the NFL's stingiest rushing defense and the New England Patriots stretched their winning streak to seven games with a 34-9 rout of Detroit. The AFC East-leading Pats are 9-2 while the Lions fell to 7-4, being held without a touchdown for the second straight week.

-- Seattle handed Arizona just its second loss of the season 19-3. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was sacked seven times but found backup tight end Cooper Helfet on a 20-yard catch-and-run touchdown late in the third quarter. The 7-4 Seahawks moved within two games of NFC West-leading Arizona.

-- Brian Hoyer shook off three interceptions and led the Cleveland Browns down the field in the final minute to set up Billy Cundiff's 37-yard field goal as time expired for a 26-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The Browns are 7-4 while Atlanta dropped to 4-7.

-- Andy Dalton threw for 233 yards and a touchdown and A.J. Green had 121 yards receiving on a career-high 12 receptions to give the Cincinnati Bengals a 22-13 win over the Houston Texans. The Bengals are 7-3-1 and in the thick of the AFC North race.

-- T.Y. Hilton celebrated the birth of his first child with a 73-yard TD catch, spurring a second-half turnaround that allowed Indianapolis to pull away from Jacksonville, 23-3.

The 7-4 Colts have won 11 straight against AFC South foes.

-- Matt Forte (FOR'-tay) rushed for two touchdowns in the third quarter, and the Chicago Bears beat their ex-coach Lovie Smith and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21-13 in his return to Soldier Field. The Bears improved to 5-6. Tampa Bay is 2-9.

-- Marcus Gilchrist intercepted Shaun Hill at the goal line with 56 seconds left to preserve the San Diego Chargers' 27-24 victory against the St. Louis Rams. The Chargers improved to 7-4 and tightened up the AFC West race.

-- San Francisco rallied past Washington 17-13. Carlos Hyde ran for a go-ahead 4-yard touchdown with 2:59 left. The 7-4 Niners have a quick turnaround before facing the rival and defending Super Bowl champion 7-4 Seahawks at home Thursday night.


UNDATED (AP) -- The new Associated Press Top-25 football poll has been released with no change at the top from last week's poll.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- A dream season for British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has ended with a victory in the final race of the season and the World Championship. Despite not sleeping the night before the Abu Dhabi (AH'-boo DAH'-bee) Grand Prix, Hamilton finished first in a race he only needed to finish first or second in to clinch the title, his second. Hamilton also won the F1 title in 2008. Mercedes teammate Nico (NEE'-koh) Rosberg started the day on the pole and just 17 points back of Hamilton but he never recovered from a poor start.

Overall, Hamilton finished the season with 384 points, with Rosberg notching 317 and Daniel Ricciardo (rih-KAR'-doh) 238 to finish third.


NAPLES, Fla. (AP) -- New Zealand teenager Lydia Ko ended a big year on the LPGA Tour with the largest payoff in women's golf.

She finished regulation in a three-way tie and eventually defeated Carlota Ciganda of Spain on the fourth extra hole in Naples, Florida.

Ko played the 18th hole five times on Sunday and made par each time. The last par was worth $1.5 million, including the bonus and the $500 payoff for the tournament win.
