Browns still have a path to the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage in the AFC

+

The Browns clinched a playoff berth with Thursday night’s win over the Jets, but their regular season could end with a much bigger prize: The No. 1 seed, a bye week and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Cleveland is one of three AFC teams, along with Baltimore and Miami, that still has a chance at the No. 1 seed. The Browns’ path to the top seed in the AFC is fairly simple: First, the Dolphins must beat the Ravens on Sunday. If the Ravens win or tie, the Ravens are the AFC No. 1 seed.

Steve Kerr 'disgusted' by officiating after Nikola Jokic's 18 FTAs

+

Members of the Golden State Warriors rolled their eyes as Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic made his way to the foul line. He was about to attempt his 15th and 16th free throws. Jokic ended the game taking, and making, 18 free throws -- a career high for him and an NBA record for the most such makes without a miss on Christmas Day. It also was tied for the second-most free throws overall for Christmas. The Warriors weren't necessarily mad at the officiating of Jokic on Denver's way to its 120-114 victory. The countless bloody scratches he has after every game is proof of the contact he works through.

Detroit Pistons lose in overtime to Boston Celtics and tie NBA record with 28 straight losses

+

The Detroit Pistons continued their march toward infamy on Thursday in a 128-122 overtime loss to the Boston Celtics, tying an NBA record of futility with their 28th consecutive loss. The Pistons have been on an unrivaled single-season run of failure over the past two months, and on Tuesday set the NBA record for most consecutive losses in a season with 27. With this latest loss, Detroit tied the NBA’s overall record losing streak of 28 games, a mark achieved by the Philadelphia 76ers stretching from the end of the 2014-2015 season to the start of the following year. "I hurt for them, you know we just we feel like we’re just getting so close to not just winning one game but winning a lot of games if we play that way versus most teams in the league," Pistons head coach Monty Williams said after the game. The Celtics came into the game with the best record in the NBA at 23-6, while the Pistons entered at an NBA-worst 2-28.

Rangers crush Capitals to continue dominance in revenge games

+

The Rangers have mastered the art of the revenge game through just over two months of the season. Not only have they won all but one contest following their nine losses, but the Blueshirts have yet to succumb to the same team twice, a trend they continued Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden with a 5-1 win over the Capitals. Each time they’ve faced an opponent that badly beat them in their previous meeting, the Rangers have bounced back with an indisputable effort. The kind that shows the initiative they’ve taken to identify and correct their mistakes, and then apply it to their game the second time around. "There’s self-awareness in the room, they realize that," Rangers head coach Peter Laviolette said after his club improved to 24-8-1. "I don’t think we played a very good game in Washington. I don’t think the players probably thought [they did] either. So that’s a chance to go out and play a better brand of hockey."

+

On Jan. 1, 2024, the two youngest NHL teams -- the 2023 Stanley Cup-winning Vegas Golden Knights and the Seattle Kraken -- will battle outside for the Winter Classic. The game will be played at T-Mobile Park, home of the MLB's Seattle Mariners.

"The arena comes alive," NHL chief content officer Steve Mayer told CBS Sports about the environment at Climate Pledge Arena, home of the Seattle Kraken and Seattle Storm. "It's an amazing arena, state of the art, one of the best in the entire league. So, you know, quickly we turned our attention to, we've got to come here for an outdoor game."

Kris Letang became the first defenseman in NHL history to get five points in one period, and the Pittsburgh Penguins cruised to a 7-0 win against the New York Islanders at UBS Arena on Wednesday. Letange had five assists during a six-goal second period for the Penguins. He added an assist in the third period to tie the NHL record for most in a game by a defenseman.

It's one of those nights where everybody seemed to score every time I gave it to them."
