DETROIT (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky threw a go-ahead, 3-yard touchdown pass to David Montgomery with 2:17 left, lifting the Chicago Bears to a 24-20 win over the slumping Detroit Lions. Chicago has won three of four games after losing four in a row to stay in the playoff picture. The Lions have lost five straight for the first time under second-year coach Matt Patricia.
UNDATED (AP) — Akim Aliu is not happy with the apology Calgary Flames coach Bill Peters issued for a racial slur he allegedly used when both were in the minors 10 years ago. The Nigerian-born former NHL player says he found Peters’ statement acknowledging that he used offensive language to be “misleading, insincere and concerning.” Aliu says he has accepted an invitation from the NHL to discuss the situation and will not make any further comments until after the meeting.
