Butker’s kick lifts Chiefs & other NFL News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Desperate for a win, the Kansas City Chiefs got one against the short-handed New York Giants.

Harrison Butker hit a pair of fourth-quarter field goals, including the go-ahead 34-yarder with 1:07 left to give the Chiefs a 20-17 comeback victory against the Giants.

Patrick Mahomes (mah-HOHMZ’) threw for 275 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the 4-4 Chiefs, who had to overcome two more turnovers along with 12 penalties for more than 100 yards.

Tyreek Hill led the Chiefs with 12 catches for 94 yards and a score.

The 2-6 Giants have lost three games with late field goals this season.

Daniel Jones had 222 yards passing with two touchdowns and a pick for New York, but he also was sacked three times.

The Giants were without running back Saquon (SAY’-kwahn) Barkley and wide receiver Kenny Golladay, both out with injuries.


Winston done for year…Surgery for Henry…Rams get Miller

UNDATED (AP) — News from the NFL on Monday includes two major injuries and a trade involving an eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker.

Saints quarterback Jameis (JAY’-mihs) Winston is done for the season after suffering a major left knee injury during the second quarter of Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers. An MRI shows a torn ACL and damage to the MCL in Winston’s left knee.

New Orleans coach Sean Payton says he’s content to stick with the three remaining healthy QBs on his roster.

Derrick Henry’s situation is only a little better. The NFL rushing leader will undergo surgery on his right foot on Tuesday, a damaging blow to the Titans’ offense. Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel (VRAY’-bul) says the team isn’t putting a timetable on Henry’s return.

The Titans placed Henry on injured reserve Monday afternoon.

The big deal of the day has Von Miller going from the Broncos to the Rams. Two people familiar with the deal say Denver will get second- and third-round picks in the 2022 draft for the perennial Pro Bowler. The Broncos also are picking up $9 million of the $9.7 million left on his contract.

Also around the NFL:

— Packers coach Matt LaFleur has declined to say if 2020 All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari will make his 2021 debut on Sunday at Kansas City. LaFleur says he’s made up his mind but wants to stay mum to force the Chiefs to prepare for either scenario. Bakhtiari hasn’t played since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Dec. 31.

— Ravens starting linebacker Malik Harrison is recovering after being struck in the leg by a stray bullet while police said he was outside a Cleveland nightclub. The Ravens released a statement saying Harrison suffered a non-life-threatening injury when he was shot in the left calf while attending a gathering Sunday night.
