Morning Sports News: Reds Win Game 1, & NFL week 5 Headlines

 

 

Highlighted by 2B Brandon Phillips’s third-inning two-run homer, the Cincinnati Reds took game 1 of the National League Divisional series, 5-2, to take a 1-0 series lead over the San Francisco Giants. It looked bleak for the Reds early when starting pitcher Johnny Cueto had to leave the game in the first inning with back spasms. But Matt Latos came in and took over in the third-inning and gave up one run in four innings, bridging the gap to the Reds’ lockdown bullpen.

 

Bills safety Jairus Byrd (hip) is questionable to play today vs. the 49ers.

 

As Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano battles leukemia, he has sent an email to his team that interim coach Bruce Arians will read to the team today before Sunday’s game with the  Packers.

 

The Chiefs have 15 turnovers so far this season, and are on a historically bad pace to turn the ball over 60 times, and the all-time NFL record is 63 turnovers. It will be tough to avoid that trend as they take on the Ravens defense today.

 

The NFL is reviewing comments made by Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, in which he said his players need to perform with a reckless abandonment and forget the consequences.
