SPORTLIGHT

Dec. 17

1933–The Chicago Bears win the first NFL championship with a 23-21 victory over the New York Giants. The Bears score the winning touchdown on a 36-yard play that starts with a short pass from Bronko Nagurski to Bill Hewitt, who then laterals to Bill Kerr for the score.

1991–The Cleveland Cavaliers turn a 20-point halftime lead over Miami into the most lopsided victory in NBA history, 148-80 over the Heat. The 68-point margin eclipses the mark of 63 set March 19, 1972, when the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors 162-99.

1993–Julio Cesar Chavez secures his place in boxing history, retaining his WBC super lightweight title with a fifth-round victory over Britain's Andy Holligan. It's the 27th time Chavez fought for a title without a loss since 1984, breaking Joe Louis' mark of 26.

1993–Virgil Hill becomes the most successful light heavyweight in boxing history, winning a record 15th title defense with a unanimous decision over Guy Waters of Australia. Hill, the WBA champion for five of the last six years, had been tied with Bob Foster, who held light heavyweight titles from 1968 to 1974.

1994–Minnesota wide receiver Cris Carter, with 8 catches for 80 yards, breaks the NFL record of 112 receptions in a season in the Vikings' 41-19 loss to the Detroit Lions. Carter, who finished the season with 122 receptions, broke the mark set by Green Bay's Sterling Sharpe in 1993.

2000–Terrell Owens catches an NFL-record 20 passes for 283 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's 17-0 victory over Chicago. Jeff Garcia completes 36 of 44 passes for 402 yards and two touchdowns for the 49ers.

2005–John Ruiz loses the WBA heavyweight title, dropping a disputed majority decision to 7-foot Nikolay Valuev of Russia in Berlin. Valuev, the first Russian heavyweight champion, also becomes the tallest and heaviest (323 pounds) champion of all-time.

2006–LaDainian Tomlinson breaks Paul Hornung's 46-year-old NFL single-season scoring record on a 15-yard run in the first quarter of San Diego's game against Kansas City. The touchdown run gives him 180 points, breaking Hornung's record of 176 set with the Green Bay Packers in 1960.

2006–Green Bay's Brett Favre passes Dan Marino to become the league's all-time completions leader with a 21-yard pass to wide receiver Carlyle Holiday. Favre, needed 14 completions, finds Holiday over the middle with 1:42 left in the second quarter for the 4,968th completion of his 16-year career.

2006–Gilbert Arenas sets a franchise record with 60 points, 16 of them in overtime, to lead Washington to a 147-141 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

2008–Chris Paul breaks Alvin Robertson's NBA record for consecutive regular-season games with a steal, reaching 106 in New Orleans' 90-83 victory over San Antonio.

2012–Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim becomes the third Division I men's coach to reach 900 wins. Boeheim, 68 and in his 37th year at his alma mater, reaches the mark when his third-ranked Orange post a 72-68 victory over Detroit in the Gotham Classic.
