CLEVELAND (AP) -- Lou Williams scored a career-high 36 points and the Toronto Raptors turned an 18-point deficit into a convincing 110-93 win over Cleveland on Saturday night, handing the Cavaliers their fourth straight loss.

The Raptors, who have won four in a row and are off to their best start in franchise history, trailed 26-8 less than 4 minutes into the game, but showed why they have the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Toronto led 56-54 at halftime and took control midway in the third quarter. The Raptors up by as many as 19 points in the fourth.

Kevin Love scored 23 points to lead Cleveland. LeBron James, who spent the final 6:20 on the bench, finished with 15 points with 10 assists.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Brayden Schenn, Mark Streit, Wayne Simmonds and Braydon Coburn all scored for the Philadelphia Flyers, who broke a season-worst, four-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux both had two assists, and Voracek improved his NHL-leading points total to 29. Giroux notched his 400th NHL point with his first assist. Steve Mason made 20 saves.

Boone Jenner and Matt Calvert scored for the Blue Jackets, who have lost three games in a row. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 33 shots against his former team. He got the start despite playing through a seven-round shootout loss at Boston on Friday.

During its skid, Philadelphia had allowed the first goal. The Flyers reversed that trend against Columbus.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns activated star wide receiver Josh Gordon, clearing the way for him to make his season debut on Sunday in Atlanta.

Cleveland officially activated the All-Pro from the exempt/commissioner permission list Saturday and waived backup outside linebacker Keith Pough.

The roster move with Gordon was a formality after he was reinstated earlier in the week after serving a 10-game league suspension for violating the drug policy. He'll be on the field at the Georgia Dome when the Browns take on the Falcons.

Gordon, who led the NFL with 1,646 yards receiving in just 14 games last season, looked good in practice this week and will likely be in the starting lineup. After serving a two-game suspension last season, Gordon caught 10 passes for 146 yards in a win over Minnesota.

Pough spent the first 10 weeks on the Browns' practice squad.


FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Carson Wentz threw for two scores and ran for another to lead North Dakota State to a 38-14 win over Youngstown State on Saturday.

Wentz connected with Zach Vraa for 18 yards, added a 17-yard rushing TD and hit Andrew Bonnet for a 9-yarder to give North Dakota State a 28-0 halftime lead.

John Crockett carried it 28 times for 168 yards and had a 4-yard TD for North Dakota State. King Frazier rushed for 45 yards and added a 10-yard score in the fourth quarter.

Hunter Wells threw for 135 yards and two scores for Youngstown State, but was hurt by three interceptions.

Christian Dudzik had two picks, Nick DeLuca had the other, Derek Rivers recovered a fumble and the Bison defense held the Penguins to 216 total yards.


DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Connor Kacsor ran in 16 yards for a go-ahead touchdown to give Dayton a 19-14 victory over Campbell in the season finale for both teams on Saturday.

The Flyers trailed 14-13 in the fourth when Kacsor's TD run put Dayton ahead with 4:48 to go. The two-point conversion failed.

Campbell got the ball back and drove down 68 yards, but on fourth and 5 at the Dayton 7, Dakota Wolf's pass was broken up by Danny Leach with 2:19 remaining.

Kacsor broke Dayton's all-time career rushing record by three yards, now with 2,943 yards total. He finished the day with 90 yards on 24 carries. Will Bardo threw for 239 yards and a touchdown.

Wolf was 10-of-22 passing for 93 yards, and had 83 yards on the ground. Jabri Ridenhour scored on runs of 9 and 6 yards for both of the Fighting Camels' touchdowns.


SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Javaris Jenkins finished with 33 points, including 6-of-7 from 3-point range, and seven rebounds to lead Savannah State to an 87-83 come from behind win in overtime over Cleveland State on Saturday night.

Jenkins scored 10 of the final 11 points in regulation for the Tigers, including a game tying 3 that knotted the score at 79 with one second left. The shot capped off a 13-point second half comeback for Savannah State, which trailed 60-47 midway through the half.

Alante Fenner added 16 points and six boards off the bench for the Tigers, while Khaleen Pinkett finished with 10 points.

Trey Lewis scored 27 points to pace the Vikings, who were held scoreless over the final two minutes of the overtime period. Marlin Mason added 16 points for Cleveland State and Anton Grady had 13.


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- JT Yoho scored 25 points, Joe Thomasson added 16 with nine rebounds and five assists, and Wright State defeated Charleston Southern 86-79 on Saturday night.

The Raiders shot 57.7 percent from the field and hit 10 3-pointers. Chrishawn Hopkins scored 14 points, Reggie Arceneaux had 11 and Steven Davis chipped in 10.

Wright State pushed out to a 13-point lead in the first half with a 15-4 run sparked by two jumpers and a 3-pointer by Thomasson.

Charleston Southern climbed back within three at the midway mark in the second half, but Yoho answered with a three-point play and two layups to put the Raiders up 75-68 with 3:30 left. Wright State sank 11 free throws in the final 2 1/2 minutes to seal it.

Arlon Harper led the Buccaneers with 24 points while Saah Nimley and Will Saunders each chipped in 15.

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.

-- 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 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.

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.
