NFL

The Los Angeles Chargers defeated the Baltimore Ravens on the road booking a date next week with the New England Patriots.

The Philadelphia Eagles survived a late game-winning drive attempt by the Chicago Bears as former Eagles kicker Cody Parkey clanked his sixth field goal off the uprights this season and missed his eleventh field goal try on the year.
