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) -- The NFL has a rare two-game schedule for Monday night football tonight.

The Ravens-Saints game in New Orleans was scheduled, but the Bills-Jets game is a late addition.

The later game had to be moved from Buffalo to Detroit after areas of western New York were buried under up to seven feet of snow last week. It's a home game for the 5-5 Bills without the home field advantage. The 2-8 Jets catch a break because they won't have to deal with the raucous Buffalo crowd. The tickets for the game were free and Bills president Russ Brandon says he heard 67,000 had been distributed.

The Bills won the first meeting of the season with the Jets 43-23.

The Ravens head to the Big Easy needing a win to keep pace in the tight AFC North. All four teams in the division have a .600 winning percentage or better. The Ravens bring with them long-time Saints nemesis Steve Smith who used to face New Orleans twice a year when he was with Carolina. Smith has caught 10 touchdown passes against New Orleans to go along with 99 receptions and 1,493 yards.

The Saints head into the game with a 4-6 record, which is good for first in the NFC South. They've lost two in a row.


UNDATED (AP) -- Portland takes a seven-game winning streak into tonight's game at Philadelphia. The Sixers haven't won all season. The mismatch is part of a seven-game schedule in the NBA tonight.

The Trail Blazers have won nine of their last 10 to lead the Northwest Division.

The Sixers 0-13 start makes them the first team to open a season with 13 losses since the 2009-10 Nets who lost 18 in a row for the worst start to a season in NBA history. The Sixers are nearing their franchise-worst start of 0-15 in 1972-73.

Toronto tries to keep pace with Memphis for the best record in the NBA when the Raptors host Phoenix.

Toronto is 11-2 for the best start to the season in franchise history. A win tonight ties the Raptors with the Grizzlies for the best record in the league. Toronto's 8-1 home record is tops in the Eastern Conference.

Like Toronto, the Suns are riding a four-game winning streak heading into the game.


UNDATED (AP) -- It's a busy night in top 25 college basketball with eight games on the schedule including a meeting of unbeaten, ranked teams.

No. 12 Villanova takes on 15th-ranked VCU in a battle of 3-0 teams at the Legends Classic in Brooklyn. The Wildcats had to work harder than expected to beat Bucknell by seven in their last game.

Second-ranked Arizona takes its 3-0 record west to take on Missouri in the Maui Invitational. The Tigers have seven new players on the roster including five freshman.

That's also where 16th-ranked San Diego State puts its 3-0 mark on the line against BYU. The Aztecs are allowing just 57 points per game, second best in the country. BYU boasts one of the nation's best pure shooter in Tyler Haws who shots 38 percent from 3-point range.


UNDATED (AP) -- After two wins in as many nights against Pittsburgh over the weekend, pulled the Islanders into a first place tie with the Penguins in the Metropolitan Division, the two teams are in action tonight.

The Islanders host Philadelphia having won eight of their last nine games. At 14-6, the Islanders are off to their best start to a season since 1987-88.

Even though the Penguins are tied with the Islanders for first, they've played one fewer game. Before being swept by New York over the weekend, Pittsburgh had won three in a row. They try to get back on track when they visit the Bruins tonight. Boston's only given up six goals in its last four games, including three wins.

There are four games on the NHL schedule.
