#SportsReport: Seahawks Top Packers, 27-24



The Seattle Seahawks were able to win a matchup of desperate NFL teams on Thursday. Russell Wilson hit Ed Dickson for a 15-yard touchdown with 5:08 to send the Seahawks past the visiting Green Bay Packers, 27-24. Wilson threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns while helping Seattle overcome a 14-3 deficit. The Seahawks' defense stiffened in the second half, holding the Packers to 114 total yards. Half of that came on Aaron Rodgers' 57-yard strike to Davante Adams. Rodgers was 21 of 30 passing for 332 yards and two scores, while Adams had 166 yards on 10 receptions. The Seahawks are 5-5 after ending a two-game skid. The Packers are 4-5-1.

Odell Beckham Jr. says more than a couple of people scoffed last week when he said the New York Giants could win their final eight games and make the playoffs. The NFL's highest-paid receiver knew it was a long shot when he made the statement and little has changed since the Giants beat the San Francisco 49ers 27-23 on Monday night.

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa isn't sure if he will make his long-awaited season debut on Sunday against the Broncos. The third-year pro has practiced the last two days as he works his way back from a foot injury that caused him to miss the first 10 games. He acknowledged before Thursday's practice that it will likely be a game-time decision if he plays this week.

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane is frustrated by his team's offensive struggles, but tells The Associated Press he's not veering from his rebuilding plan. The Bills are 3-7 and essentially out of the playoff conversation mostly due to a young and patchwork offensive lineup, and a carousel at quarterback.

New Jersey got its second road win in nine tries this season. The Devils have played eight of their last nine on the road.

The Nashville Predators have a couple of major holes in their lineup. The Predators say forward Viktor Arvidsson will miss between up to eight weeks with a broken thumb suffered in last weekend's win at Dallas. Arvidsson had just returned off injured reserve after sitting out three games with a lower-body injury. The Predators have also placed defenseman P.K. Subban on injured reserve and activated blueliner Dan Hamhuis. Subban has an upper-body injury.

Carmelo Anthony's stint with the Houston Rockets has lasted just 10 games. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has released a statement saying the team is "parting ways" with the 10-time All-Star forward and "working toward a resolution." Morey added that Anthony had a tremendous approach while with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D'Antonio gave him, but the fit they envisioned never materialized. Anthony signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal during the offseason after being traded by the Thunder to Atlanta before his contract was bought out by the Hawks. He averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds for Houston. Anthony is third among active NBA players with 25,551 points, and 19th in league history.

The Houston Rockets had no trouble beating the team that stopped them from reaching the NBA Finals last spring. James Harden poured in 27 points and the Rockets opened the fourth quarter on a 12-2 run to take an 88-65 lead in a 107-86 rout of the Warriors. James Ennis III had 19 points on 7 of 11 shooting for Houston, which reached the .500 mark at 7-7 despite a 1-4 start. Kevin Durant had 20 points for the Warriors on a night they were just 4 of 18 on 3-pointers. Golden State is 2-2 since Stephen Curry suffered a groin injury. Curry is expected to miss the last two games of the Warriors' three-game trek through Texas.

— The Nuggets ended their four-game losing streak by getting a season-high 25 points from Juancho Hernangomez in a 138-93 dismantling of the Hawks. Paul Millsap and Gary Harris added 18 points apiece for the Nuggets, who outscored Atlanta 36-16 in the third quarter.
