LOS ANGELES (AP) The NFL moved the Rams' Monday night showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs from Mexico City to Los Angeles on Tuesday due to the poor condition of the field at Azteca Stadium.

The league announced the extraordinary decision six days before one of the most-anticipated regular-season games of the year.

In a news release, the league said it determined that the recently re-sodded field at Mexico City's historic stadium "does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency, and will not meet those standards by next Monday."


Bell won't play in 2018, forfeits $14.4M

PITTSBURGH (AP) Le'Veon Bell's patience on the football field sets him apart.

In a game built on chaos, the star running back rarely hurries or makes hasty decisions.


Bengals hire Jackson to help run defense

CINCINNATI (AP) Hue Jackson needed only a few weeks to land another job in the place where he's always welcomed.

The Bengals hired Jackson on Tuesday as a special assistant to head coach Marvin Lewis as he tries to resurrect Cincinnati's historically bad defense. Jackson was fired by the Cleveland Browns last month after he won only three games in three seasons as head coach.


Chiefs' Mahomes rewriting record books

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Patrick Mahomes walked off the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday with another record on his resume and the Kansas City Chiefs another win toward earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs.

He didn't have much chance to savor any of it.


'Hawks, Wilson missing 4th quarter magic

RENTON, Wash. (AP) For most of his career, the fourth quarter is where Russell Wilson has thrived. His late game heroics of leading comebacks in the fourth quarter or overtime to win games take up nearly an entire page of Seattle's weekly game notes.

Except this year, when the fourth-quarter mistakes by Wilson have overshadowed his late-game successes. And those mistakes are part of the reason Seattle is 4-5 and faces such a critical game on Thursday night against Green Bay in the quest to stay in the NFC playoff conversation.


Run game may fix Packers' red zone woes

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Running back Aaron Jones' breakout game led to a breakthrough performance in the red zone for the Green Bay Packers.

In Sunday's 31-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins, Jones rushed for a career-high 145 yards and two touchdowns. With Jones taking some of the pressure off quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers scored four touchdowns in four possessions inside the Dolphins 20-yard line.


Mullens remains starter at QB for 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan knew things wouldn't always go quite as smoothly for Nick Mullens as they did in his first start.

So when Mullens followed up his record-setting debut with a spottier performance that included two interceptions and a failed late drive, Shanahan wasn't overly concerned and remains committed to Mullens as the starter when the team returns from the bye next week.


Rivera: former RB Anderson irked by role

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said C.J. Anderson's frustration with his smaller-than-expected role on offense contributed to the team's decision to release the former 1,000-yard rusher midway through the season.

Rivera said he spoke recently to Anderson and could sense the veteran running back's frustration over not being more involved in Carolina's offense.


Giants relieved to snap 5-game skid

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) After five straight weeks of preparing and coming up empty, the New York Giants have something to smile about starting off a week.

It's amazing what a win can do for a team.


Chargers place LB Perryman on IR

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers placed linebacker Denzel Perryman on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury and promoted linebacker Tre'von Johnson from the practice squad.

Perryman injured the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee during the first quarter of Sunday's 20-6 win over Oakland. The fourth-year linebacker started every game this season and was second on the Chargers with 51 tackles going into the Raiders game.
