KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid says he hasn’t decided whether to rest his starters on Sunday against San Diego, even though Kansas City has nothing to gain by winning the game. The Chiefs already are assured of the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, which means they’ll head on the road for a wild-card game in two weeks.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two NFL Hall of Famers are among nine former Kansas City Chiefs players who have joined a lawsuit that contends the team hid the risks of permanent brain injuries from repeated concussions. Cornerback Albert Lewis and defensive end Art Still were added Saturday to the lawsuit initially filed this month on behalf of five former Chiefs players. All 14 plaintiffs were on the team between 1987 and 1993, a period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers were winners in the final regular-season game at Candlestick Park, beating Atlanta 34-24 to clinch an NFC playoff berth. The Falcons were at the San Francisco 10 and well within range for a game-tying field goal until NaVorro Bowman returned an interception 89 yards for a game-clinching touchdown with 1:10 remaining. The Falcons carried a 10-3 lead into the second half before Colin Kaepernick threw for a touchdown and ran for another to help the Niners prevent Seattle from clinching the NFC West.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy isn’t sure if quarterback Aaron Rodgers will start the team’s winner-take-all NFC North matchup against the Bears in Chicago on Sunday. McCarthy says the team wants to make a decision on Rodgers’ availability “sooner than later.” Rodgers has missed the Packers’ last seven games since fracturing his left collarbone against the Bears at Lambeau Field on Nov. 4.

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas coach Jason Garrett won’t rule out quarterback Tony Romo playing in Sunday’s game at Philadelphia as the Eagles and Cowboys battle for the NFC East title. Romo suffered a back injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 24-23 win over Washington, one series before he threw a game-winning touchdown pass with 68 seconds remaining. Garrett says Romo underwent an MRI yesterday and will undergo daily treatment and evaluation.

DENVER (AP) — Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller suffered a season-ending knee injury in Sunday’s win over the Texans in Houston. Miller tore the ACL in his right knee during the first quarter and finished the year with just five sacks in nine games after serving a six-game drug suspension. He had a team-record 18 ½ sacks, 28 tackles for loss and six forced fumbles in 2012.

Kevin Shattenkirk, Jaden Schwartz and Paajarvi scored for the Blues (24-7-5), which took three out of four points in Alberta and are 5-1-2 in their last eight.
