The Latest: Rivers has record-setting day for Bolts

The Latest on Week 12 in the NFL (all times EDT):

7:15 p.m.

Philip Rivers was nearly perfect in the Chargers' 45-10 victory over Arizona, completing 28 of 29 passes for 259 yards in only three quarters of work.

That completion percentage of 96.8 percent surpassed Kurt Warner's record of 92.3, set for the Cardinals in a game against Jacksonville. Warner was 24 of 26 that day.

Rivers hit 25 straight passes over the first 2 1/2 quarters to match Ryan Tannehill's NFL record, set over a two-game stretch in 2015. He also broke Mark Brunell's record for consecutive completions to start a game — Brunell hit 22 straight for Washington on Sept. 24, 2006.

___

6:20 p.m.

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon has gone to the locker room after sustaining a knee injury during the third quarter of their game against the Cardinals.

Gordon was hurt when he was catching a flip from Austin Ekeler on an end-around and a Cardinals defender tripped him. Gordon went down and immediately grabbed his right leg below the knee.

He had carried 10 times for 61 yards and two touchdowns when he left the game.

___

6:10 p.m.

Ben Roethlisberger was 25 of 31 for 221 yards in the first half at Denver, but the Steelers' lone touchdown came from kicker Chris Boswell on a fake field goal as time expired.

Boswell took the direct snap and hit left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a wide receiver during his college days at Army, with the tying touchdown pass. He's the first Steelers offensive lineman to catch a touchdown pass since Ray Pinney did it against the Browns in 1983.

The Steelers had frittered away a couple of scoring chances.

Justin Simmons blocked Boswell's 48-yard field goal attempt, and Will Parks punched away the football just as tight end Xavier Grimble was about to score on a 24-yard catch-and-run, the ball going out of bounds in the end zone for a touchback.

___

6 p.m.

The Chargers' Philip Rivers tied Ryan Tannehill's NFL record by completing 25 consecutive passes in their game against the Cardinals before misfiring on a dump-off to Austin Ekeler.

Rivers was 19 of 19 in the first half Sunday, then connected on his first three passes in the second half to break Mark Brunnell's record for consecutive completions to start a game.

Rivers added two more completions to match Tannehill's record, the 25th a short touchdown pass to Keenan Allen that withstood a video review to see whether it was caught inbounds.

Tannehill's record was set over two games with Miami during the 2015 season.

___

5:30 p.m.

Philip Rivers has been perfect in the first half for the Chargers, going 19 of 19 for 187 yards and two touchdowns in helping the Chargers to a 28-10 lead over the Cardinals.

Melvin Gordon also has a pair of TD runs for the Chargers.

The Chargers (7-3) are trying to keep pace with the Chiefs (9-2) in the AFC West.

Another one of their AFC West rivals, Denver, is helping both of their causes when it comes to playoff positioning. They're giving the Steelers (7-2-1) all they can handle in the first half.

___

4:40 p.m.

Miami's Ryan Tannehill took his first snaps in a game after missing the previous five with an injured throwing shoulder and looked like he hadn't missed a thing in Indianapolis.

Tannehill completed his first two passes for 34 yards, capping the drive with a screen pass that Kenyan Drake took 33 yards for a touchdown — ending the Dolphins' nine-quarter stretch without a TD.

The drive took just six plays and came five plays after Colts linebacker Darius Leonard injured his knee and walked straight to the locker room. Leonard came into the weekend leading the league with 104 tackles. His return was listed as questionable.

4:25 p.m.

Rookie quarterbacks ruled the early games in Week 12 as Lamar Jackson had two touchdowns to lead Baltimore past Oakland, Baker Mayfield threw for four TDs in the Browns' win over the Bengals and Josh Allen had scores on the ground and through the air in a win over Jacksonville.

Tom Brady and Sony Michel had big days to lead the Patriots to a 27-13 win over the New York Jets, and Russell Wilson led Seattle from behind for a 30-27 win over the Panthers.

That spoiled a big day by Carolina's Christian McCaffrey.

In the other early games, the Buccaneers routed the 49ers 27-9 while the Super Bowl champion Eagles came from behind to beat the Giants, 25-22.

___

4:15 p.m.

The Cardinals scored on their opening drive as Josh Rosen threw a 25-yard touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald to take a 7-0 lead over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Rosen, who grew up in Manhattan Beach and went to UCLA, completed all four of his passes for 56 yards on the drive in front of his hometown fans.

The StubHub Center also marks the 41st different NFL stadium where Fitzgerald has caught a pass.

___

4:05 p.m.

The Tennessee Titans have downgraded wide receiver Taywan Taylor, who hurt his foot a few weeks ago against Dallas, to out for Monday night's game in Houston.

Taylor had been limited in practice this week.

The Titans also added starting outside linebacker Derrick Morgan to the injury report as questionable with an illness. Left tackle Taylor Lewan did not practice with an illness, but he was expected to play Monday night.

___

3:50 p.m.

Christian McCaffrey has 10 catches for 104 yards and a touchdown along with 17 carries for 125 yards and a score, making him the first player in Carolina history with at least 100 yards receiving and rushing in the same game.

His total of 229 yards and counting against Seattle is also a franchise record.

Meanwhile, quarterback Cam Newton completed his first 14 passes in the first half and was 21 of 24 for 216 yards and two touchdowns as the Panthers built a 27-20 lead on the Seahawks.

3:40 p.m.

Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette and Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson have been ejected after trading punches along the sideline late in the third quarter of their game.

The fight began after the Jags' Donte Moncrief caught what was initially ruled a 30-yard TD pass at the left pylon. He was battling for control of the ball with Levi Wallace when a Jaguars player struck Bills safety Jordan Poyer from behind, and then Lawson ran in and hit Fournette.

Lawson and Fournette pushed their way to side of the stands where they traded punches while Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde and Bills defensie end Jerry Hughes attempted to separate them.

The two were then escorted off their respective sidelines and began yelling at each other as they reached the tunnel. Lawson had to be held back by a Bills official while Fournette was asked to wait — he was then struck in the left shoulder by a fan, who had reached out from the stands.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton hurt the thumb on his passing hand while trying to recover a fumble early in the second half of their game against the Cleveland Browns.

Dalton chased a snap that went over his head and got caught in a pileup. He immediately headed to a locker room for an exam.

The Browns recovered the fumble, and Baker Mayfield threw his fourth touchdown pass for a 35-7 lead. Dalton was 10 of 17 for 100 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Dalton broke his right thumb late in the 2015 season and missed the playoffs.

Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen wore a black T-shirt during early warmups supporting the Los Angeles Fire Department and asking fans to text donations to the Red Cross for wildfire relief before Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers at the StubHub Center.

2:30 p.m.

When the Jets' Jason Myers made a 55-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining in the opening half against New England, he became the first kicker in NFL history to hit five field goals from 55-plus yards in one season.

Myers also had 55-yarders against Miami, Minnesota and Buffalo. He made a 56-yarder at Miami, which is the second longest for the franchise. Chandler Catanzaro had a 57-yard field goal against Cleveland last season.

Meanwhile in Baltimore, Cyrus Jones returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown to give the Ravens a 10-7 lead over Oakland. It was the Ravens' longest play of the year.

  • As public pool season arrives, so does new information that's likely to put a whole new spin on getting splashed in the face or accidentally swallowing water: Public pools contain one to three ounces of urine for each person that uses them. While health expert Dr. Anessa Alappatt says the same holds true for any swimming pool, public pools contain greater amounts of pee because a lot of people use them over the course of a day. In fact, the strong chlorine smell that most people associate with public pools isn't what they think it is, she says. 'The odor that you smell in a public pool is not the chlorine, but it's the chlorine reacting with all the urine in the pool,' Alappatt says.  In an unrelated survey, 40 percent of adults admitted to urinating in public pools regularly. While the pee-to-water ratio by the end of a summer would likely be staggering, it should be noted that chlorine kills most bacteria from urine within moments.

  • There is a major development in the works for Orlando.  It’s called the Packing District and it will transform a long-forgotten part of the city. Planners say the Packing District will honor Orlando’s rich history and ties to the citrus industry by revitalizing an area of the city once used for packing citrus to be shipped around the U.S.  It will be built just west of Orlando’s College Park neighborhood near the intersection of Princeton Street and Orange Blossom Trail. This week, one of the architects on the project released details of what’s coming to the southeast corner of that intersection.  Dr. Phillips Charities has chosen dap design as the architect for one of the centerpieces to the Packing District, a Food Hall.   The 22,400-square-foot project will be anchored by a historic building once owned by the Great Southern Box Company.  The building was used to build shipping crates for citrus. The Food Hall will be located at the southeast corner of Princeton and O.B.T. and will keep many of the features of the original Great Southern Box building which dates back to the 1930s. “It’s an honor to be a part of this transformational project that recognizes the history of this building and area,” said Joel A Setzer, AIA, dap design. “The food hall design approach will celebrate the existing buildings form and utilize its large structural bays as a passive connection to outdoor green space. The project will be tightly woven into the fabric of what The Packing District will be and have a strong connection to its larger context and community.” Amenities of the Food Hall will include a micro-brewery, 4,000 square feet of event space, a restaurant and bar, parking, 14,000 square feet of retail space and 10,000 square feet of office space.  The project will also include a monument sign intended to greet people to the Packing District . Once it is converted, the Southern Box building will feature an elevated plaza, outdoor greenspace and additional seating for the Food Hall.  Construction is slated to begin early next year and should be complete by the end of 2020.   The total estimated cost for the Packing District is somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000.  Overall, the 200-acre project will take about 10-15 years to complete in four phases.

Washington Insider

  • For the second time in three days, a federal judge rejected arguments by lawyers for President Donald Trump, refusing to block subpoenas issued by a U.S. House committee for financial records held by U.S. banks which did business with the President's companies. 'I think the courts are saying that we are going to uphold the rule of law,' said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, which has subpoenaed information from the Mazars USA accounting firm. Wednesday's ruling from federal Judge Edgardo Ramos, put on the bench by President Barack Obama, related to subpoenas by two other House panels to Deutsche Bank and Capital One, for records related to Mr. Trump's businesses. Lawyers for the President, the Trump Organization, and Mr. Trump's family had asked that the subpoenas be quashed - the judge made clear that wasn't happening, and also rejected a request to stay his ruling to allow for an appeal. As in investigative matters involving the President's tax returns, and other subpoenas from Democrats, Mr. Trump's legal team argued that there is a limit on the investigative power of the Congress. 'Congress must, among other things, have a legitimate legislative purpose, not exercise law-enforcement authority, not excess the relevant committee's jurisdiction, and not make overbroad or impertinent requests,' the President's lawyers wrote in a brief filed last week. But as with a case in federal court in Washington earlier this week, that argument failed to sway Judge Ramos, who said Deutsche Bank can turn over in the information sought by the House Financial Services Committee and the House Intelligence Committee. In the halls of Congress, Democrats said the legal victories were clear evidence that the resistance of the White House to Congressional investigation could only succeed for so long. 'The White House has attempted to block Congressional oversight, but the law is on our side,' said Rep. Joe Courtney (D-CT). And Democrats also were pleased by the quick action of both judges this week, amid worries that multiple legal challenges by the President could cause lengthy delays. 'We should not be slowed down in our work simply by a clock that goes through judicial processes,' said Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA). The legal setback for President Trump came several hours after he cut short a White House meeting with top Democrats on infrastructure, saying he would not work with them on major legislation until the House stopped a variety of investigations. 'Get these phony investigations over with,' the President told reporters in the Rose Garden. Mr. Trump seemed especially aggravated by statements earlier on Wednesday by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who accused the President of resisting subpoenas and other document requests for a reason. 'And we believe the President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up, in a cover-up,' Pelosi told reporters at the Capitol.
