CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are still alive in the World Series after they put together a three-run fourth to beat the Cleveland Indians, 3-2 in Game 5. Jon Lester gave up two runs and four hits over six innings before Aroldis Chapman recorded an eight-out save to close out the victory. Kris Bryant tied it with the Cubs’ second home run of the series and Addison Russell supplied the go-ahead single.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Tom Brady completed 22 of his 33 passes for 315 yards and four touchdowns as the New England Patriots earned a 41-25 win over the Buffalo Bills. The 7-1 Patriots picked up their fourth straight win and broke the game open by scoring 27 points over five consecutive possessions. The surge began with Rob Gronkowski scoring his 69th career touchdown to break a franchise record previously held by Stanley Morgan.

LONDON (AP) — Washington and Cincinnati played to a 27-all deadlock in London’s Wembley Stadium, leaving the league with two ties in the same season for the first time since 1997. The Redskins had two chances to win in the last 2 ½ minutes of OT, but Dustin Hopkins hooked a 34-yard field goal attempt and Washington wasted its last possession in Cincinnati territory following a fumble by Andy Dalton. Kirk Cousins had a team-record 56 pass attempts, completing 38 for a season-best 458 yards and two touchdowns as the Skins moved to 4-3-1.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Derek Carr was terrific in Oakland’s 30-24 overtime win against Tampa Bay, completing 40 of 59 passes for a team-record 513 yards to help the Raiders overcome an NFL-record 23 penalties. Carr won it with a 41-yard scoring pass to Seth Roberts with 1:45 remaining. Carr also threw a scoring strike to tie the game with 1:38 left in regulation before the Raiders improved to 6-2.

DENVER (AP) — Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was run over by Chargers running back Melvin Gordon on the sideline during the Broncos’ 27-19 win at San Diego. The 69-year-old Phillips was treated and released at a hospital after being carted off the field. The collision came as Brady Roby was returning a Philip Rivers interception 51 yards for a touchdown.

Foles lifts Chiefs past Colts 30-14

Sports

October 30th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes in relief of the injured Alex Smith to help the Kansas City Chiefs hold off Indianapolis 30-14 on Sunday. It was a rough game for the Chiefs, who lost Smith twice after hits to the head and finished the game with Charcandrick West as their only healthy running back.

Smith was checked for a concussion in the first half and cleared to return, which he did in the second quarter. He left again early in the third quarter after Clayton Geathers shoved Smith’s head to the turf as the quarterback tried to slide underneath the tackle. Smith was then diagnosed with a concussion and did not return.

The social media traffic about the hits on Smith came from all corners. Some fans questioned whether Geathers intentionally drove Smith’s head into the turf to knock him out of the game. Former Colts linebacker Gary Brackett wrote on Twitter that whoever cleared Smith to return should be fired, while the television announcers questioned the play call because of Smith’s previous injury. Even Smith’s wife, Elizabeth, piped in – questioning how many hits it takes to draw a flag. Smith took several hits to the head in last week’s game that weren’t called.

In addition to Smith, starting running back Spencer Ware missed the second half with a concussion. Ware started in place of Jamaal Charles , who was inactive because of swelling in his surgically repaired knee. Left guard Parker Ehinger also left in the second half with a right knee injury and did not return.

CHICAGO (AP) — Corey Kluber and Jason Kipnis led the Cleveland Indians to a 7-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs and a three-games-to-one lead in the World Series. Kluber gave up five hits over six innings and blanked the Cubs following Anthony Rizzo’s RBI single in the bottom of the first. Kipnis put the game out of reach with a three-run homer in the seventh, one inning after his sacrifice fly put Cleveland ahead 4-1.

MIAMI (AP) — Toxicology reports show Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had cocaine and alcohol in his system when he and two friends died in a boat crash into a Miami Beach jetty late last month. Toxicology reports show both men also had alcohol in their systems, while Rivero also had cocaine detectable in his system. The cause of death was listed as “boat crash” in the autopsy report, although it remains unclear who was navigating the boat.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Third-ranked Clemson was in danger of taking its first loss of the season until DeShaun Watson hit Jordan Leggett for a 34-yard touchdown with 2:02 remaining to give the Tigers a 37-34 win at No. 12 Florida State. Watson completed 27 of 43 passes for 378 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions, and he also ran for 52 yards as the Tigers improved to 8-0. Wayne Gallman had 82 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns to help the Tigers extend their regular-season winning streak to 22 games.

UNDATED (AP) — Seventh-ranked Nebraska and No. 8 Baylor were each handed their first loss of the season. Eleventh-ranked Wisconsin knocked off the seventh-rated Cornhuskers 23-17 on Dare Ogunbowale’s 11-yard scoring run in overtime. Texas knocked off Baylor for the second straight year as Trent Domingue nailed a 39-yard field goal with 46 seconds remaining to push the Longhorns past the Bears, 35-34.

UNDATED (AP) — Tenth-ranked West Virginia and No. 13 Boise St. are no longer among the unbeaten teams in college football. Mason Rudolph threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score to help Oklahoma State upset the Mountaineers, 37-20 at Stillwater. Defensive tackle Chase Appleby sacked Brett Rypien and forced a fumble for a safety with 1:25 left to give Wyoming a 30-28 upset victory over No. 13 Boise State.

Drake fends off Campbell 33-21

October 29th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Grant Kraemer threw for 304 yards and two touchdowns, Conley Wilkins rushed for two scores, and Drake held off Campbell for a 33-21 win on Saturday. Drake (4-4, 3-2 Pioneer Football League) took advantage of two early Campbell mistakes en route to a 17-0 lead after one quarter.

After a Camels fumble, Kraemer found Andrew Yarwood for a 6-yard TD to put the Bulldogs up 7-0. Campbell (3-4, 1-3) drove 57 yards on 12 plays on its next possession, but an interception and 58-yard return put Drake on the Camels’ 17-yard line. Two plays later, Kraemer threw another TD pass – this time to Zach Zlabis for 12 yards.

Anthony Robbins, who threw for 298 yards for the Camels, had touchdown passes in the second and third quarter to get Campbell within 20-14. But Wilkins scored on second-half touchdown runs of 2 and 5 yards, the latter with 8:35 remaining to give Drake a 33-21 lead, and the Bulldogs’ defense held firm.
