Broncos beat Patriots 30-24 on Anderson's OT run
DENVER (AP) —C.J. Anderson scored on a 48-yard run with 12:32 left in overtime to give the Denver Broncos a 30-24 victory Sunday night over the New England Patriots.
Brock Osweiler and the Broncos (9-2) overcame an early 14-0 deficit and handed the Patriots (10-1) their first loss since 2014.
Now, the Carolina Panthers (11-0) are the NFL's only remaining unbeaten team.
Osweiler threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Bubba Caldwell with 1:09 left in regulation to put the Broncos up 24-21.
But Tom Brady needed just five plays to drive the Patriots 51 yards and into range for Stephen Gostowski's 47-yard field goal that tied it at the end of regulation.
From the New England 48, Anderson raced around the left sideline and into the north end zone.
Colorado beats Northern Colorado 82-52
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Josh Scott had 18 points and eight rebounds, Wesley Gordon added nine points and 15 boards, and Colorado beat Northern Colorado 82-52 on Sunday for its fifth straight victory.
Colorado put the Bears out of reach with a 15-0 burst over five minutes to take a 50-19 lead with 17:34 remaining. Tory Miller started the run with a 3-point play late in the first half and Scott scored eight of the next 12 points, including dunk off a lob from Thomas Akyazili.
George King added 13 points and Josh Fortune had nine for Colorado (5-1), which never trailed despite 18 turnovers and cold shooting down the stretch.
Anthony Johnson paced Northern Colorado (1-5) with 18 points and Jordan Wilson added 12. The Bears shot 32 percent from the field in their fourth consecutive loss.
Colorado coach Tad Boyle, who coached the Bears from 2006-10, went to 2-0 against his former team.
Shiffrin wins 2nd straight World Cup slalom in Aspen
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Mikaela Shiffrin captured back-to-back World Cup slalom races in Aspen, overcoming an early mistake in her final run to still win by a large margin.
The 20-year-old American finished in 1 minute, 40.18 seconds Sunday, beating Frida Hansdotter of Sweden by 2.65 seconds. Sarka Strachova of Czech Republic was third.
Shiffrin was off balance early or the gap may have been even more. She won Saturday's slalom by 3.07 seconds, the largest margin of victory in World Cup history for the women's discipline. It was a mark that had stood since 1968.
This was Shiffrin's fifth straight World Cup slalom win dating to last season. It's the longest streak in slalom by a female skier since Marlies Schild of Austria took five in a row in 2011-12.
Landeskog, Duchene lead Avalanche to 5-3 win over Jets
DENVER (AP) — Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene each had a goal and two assists, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 for a rare home win.
Blake Comeau, Carl Soderberg and Chris Wagner also scored for the Avalanche, who improved to 3-6-1 at Pepsi Center this season.
Saturday night's victory was in jeopardy after the Jets rallied from a three-goal deficit to get within one on Jacob Trouba's goal midway through the third period.
The Jets pulled goalie Michael Hutchinson for an extra skater with 1:10 left, but Trouba was sent off for tripping. Hutchinson went off again and Duchene scored into the empty net.
