KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The most impressive thing about Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce may not be the catches, yardage and receptions over the course of his career, though all of them are setting franchise and NFL records. It might be that he’s almost always available. And with a multitude of injuries to the Kansas City wide receiver group, that is more valuable than ever. The Chiefs were without Mecole Hardman and JuJu Smith-Schuster for their 30-27 win over the Chargers on Sunday night, when Kelce hit the end zone three times. They also lost Kadarius Toney to a hamstring injury in the game.

UNDATED(AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers are one game out of a wild-card spot, but that's not the focus for coach Brandon Staley after two straight losses. Sunday night’s 30-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs marked the second straight week the Bolts had a lead going into the fourth quarter and were unable to make it stand. Despite being 5-5, the Chargers are in a favorable position to make a run. Only two of their remaining seven opponents have winning records. Both of those games are at home against Miami on Dec. 11 and Tennessee the following week.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo threw four touchdown passes, including two each to Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle, and the San Francisco 49ers won their third straight game by beating the Arizona Cardinals 38-10 in Mexico City. It was the fifth regular-season NFL game played in Mexico City and first since 2019. Technically a Cardinals home game, the festive, raucous announced crowd of 78,427 fans heavily favored the 49ers, roaring particularly loud when Kittle and Deebo Samuel scored on 39-yard touchdowns. San Francisco struggled early in the season but has won five of its last seven. The 49ers improved their record to 6-4, while the Cardinals fell to 4-7.

DENVER (AP) — It's early but the Russell Wilson trade is looking as one-sided as any in the NFL since the “Great Train Robbery” that sent Herschel Walker from Dallas to Minnesota 33 years ago in a deal that netted the Cowboys the pillars of their 1990s dynasty. Wilson has thrown just seven touchdown passes for the last-place Broncos. His successor in Seattle is Geno Smith, who has the Seahawks surprisingly atop the NFC West alongside the 49ers. Plus, the Seahawks stand to get a top-10 pick from the Broncos in 2023 after hitting pay dirt in the '22 draft.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Led by Craig Porter Jr.'s 14 points, the Wichita State Shockers defeated the Grand Canyon Antelopes 55-43 on Monday. The Shockers moved to 3-1 with the win and the Antelopes fell to 3-2.

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (AP) — Naeqwan Tomlin scored 15 points, Keyontae Johnson scored 14 points and Kansas State beat Rhode Island 77-57 in a Cayman Islands Classic contest. The Wildcats built a 14-2 lead and were never threatened. Jalen Carey’s jump shot with 12:44 before halftime reduced the Rams’ deficit to 18-11, but the Jayhawks scored nine straight when Marquis Nowell made a 3-pointer, David N’Guessan made a layup, Tomlin converted a three-point play and then made 1-of-2 free throws. Ishmael Leggett scored 13 points for Rhode Island.

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Arthur Kaluma scored 18 points and 10th-ranked Creighton shook off a rocky start and pulled away for a 76-65 victory over No. 21 Texas Tech in the opening game of the Maui Invitational. The Bluejays committed a season-high 13 turnovers in the opening 20 minutes and then their up-tempo offense started rolling. All five Creighton starters were in double figures. Daniel Batcho scored a career-high 17 points for the Red Raiders.

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) — Marcus Carr had 17 points and four assists as fourth-ranked Texas beat Northern Arizona 73-48. It was the first game the Longhorns ever played in the Rio Grande Valley in far South Texas, about 300 miles south of their Austin campus. Carr had 10 points when the 4-0 Longhorns scored 17 consecutive points for a 41-11 lead in the first half Monday night. Texas played for the first time since beating then-No. 2 Gonzaga 93-74 last Wednesday. The Longhorns moved up seven spots in the new AP Top 25 earlier Monday, while the Bulldogs dropped four spots to sixth.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Amina Muhammad had 14 points to lead four players in double figures as No. 19 Texas beat Rutgers 82-44 in the seventh-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis. Shay Holle, Aaliyah Moore and Sonya Morris each had 13 points for the Longhorns. Texas had lost at No. 3 Connecticut to start last week, then lost to Marquette and No. 10 Louisville in its first two tournament games in the Bahamas. The Longhorns shot 49% and had nine players score. Kaylene Smikle scored nine points to lead Rutgers, which shot 30% for the game.

AL RAYYAN, Qatar (AP) — Gareth Bale converted a penalty kick in the 82nd minute to offset Tim Weah’s first-half goal and give Wales a 1-1 draw against the United States in the return to the World Cup for both nations. Weah is the son of former FIFA Player of the Year and current Liberian President George Weah. The United States was back in the World Cup after missing the 2018 tournament and appeared headed to victory. But Walker Zimmerman plowed down Bale from behind with the Welsh star’s back to the goal and Bale converted the penalty for his 41st international goal.
