Eagles hold off Redskins as brawl mars rivalry game

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Rookie Jordan Matthews, the receiver who replaced DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia, caught two touchdown passes, and the Eagles beat Jackson and his Washington Redskins 37-34 on Sunday in a nasty game marred by a fourth-quarter brawl.

Jackson had his own big play, an 81-yard TD that tied it at 27. But it was not enough to offset Matthews and Jeremy Maclin, whose 27-yard scoring reception gave Philadelphia (3-0) the lead. Rookie Cody Parkey's third field goal, a 51-yarder with 5:55 remaining, put the game out of reach.

Philadelphia's Chris Polk had a 102-yard kickoff return. Kirk Cousins threw for three touchdowns for Washington (1-2).

The game was slowed by several injuries and disrupted by a sideline brawl with about 10 minutes remaining. Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was blindsided by Chris Baker during an apparent interception return by Bashaud Breeland. Baker and Philly left tackle Jason Peters were ejected.

Logano wins at N.H. to advance in Chase

LOUDON, N.H. (AP) Joey Logano pulled away on the restart to win a green-white-checkered finish Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and advance to the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship.

Logano and Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski have both advanced to the next round. Four drivers will be eliminated drivers after every third race, and a win guarantees a driver an automatic berth into the next round. The first cutoff race is next week at Dover International Speedway.

Logano raced to his fourth victory of the season, leading 73 laps and surviving a NASCAR season-high 15 cautions that wrecked results for several Chase drivers.

Keselowski led 78 laps, hit the wall, and still was in the hunt for a win. He failed in his bid to win a third straight Cup race, though he salvaged a seventh-place finish.

Team Penske has won four of the last five races dating to Bristol.

Cowboys topple Rams, tie biggest comeback ever

ST. LOUIS (AP) Terrance Williams scored the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter, and Bruce Carter returned an interception 25 yards for a TD on the next snap, capping the Dallas Cowboys' comeback from a 21-0 deficit to stun the St. Louis Rams 34-31 on Sunday.

DeMarco Murray's 1-yard run late in the first half began the rally for Dallas (2-1). Dez Bryant caught a 68-yard scoring pass in the third quarter, and Carter's first career interception and touchdown came not long after he was evaluated for concussion-like symptoms on the bench.

The comeback matched the largest in Dallas history, the other two coming in overtime in 1984 against New Orleans and 1999 against Washington. It tied the second-largest lead blown by the Rams, who slowed Murray but got burned everywhere else.

St. Louis is 0-2 at home and was whipped 34-6 by Minnesota in the opener.

No. 1 Florida St survives against No. 22 Clemson

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) With Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston watching from the sideline, No. 1 Florida State come back to beat No. 22 Clemson 23-17 in overtime on Karlos Williams' 12-yard touchdown run Saturday night.

Winston was suspended for the game against No. 22 Clemson after making "offensive and vulgar" comments earlier this week on campus.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney declined to attempt a 33-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime and Adam Choice was stuffed for no gain on fourth-and-1. Two plays later, Karlos Williams bounced outside and went untouched into the end zone.

Sean Maguire made the first start of his career with Winston sidelined. He was regularly pressured by a loaded Clemson defensive line and completed 21 of 39 passes for 305 yards with two interceptions and a 74-yard touchdown to Rashad Greene to tie it at 17 with 6:04 left in the fourth.

Estimated 7,000 fans trade in Ray Rice jerseys

BALTIMORE (AP) More than 7,000 fans showed up to exchange their Ray Rice jerseys for those of other Ravens players during a two-day event at Baltimore's home team officials said Saturday.

The Ravens handed out 5,595 new jerseys before running out before midday Saturday, then issued more than 2,400 vouchers for fans to pick up their jerseys once new shipments arrive in October.

Team spokesman Kevin Byrne said the Ravens spent "six figures" on the trade-in. He declined to disclose an exact figure.

"We anticipated over the two days getting about 5,000 people, so we got about 2,000 more," Byrne said. "We just felt it was the right thing to do, and that's why we did it."

Byrne said the jerseys collected by the team will be given to companies that deal in scrap materials.

"The NFL licensed jerseys are not recyclable because of certain materials in parts of the jersey, so what we're going to do is offer them to companies who deal in scrap," Byrne said. "We're not getting paid for it. We'll just give it to them, and they can do with it as they please."

Approximately 15 percent of those who showed up had their jerseys rejected because either they were not officially licensed by the NFL or hadn't been available through the team's online or stadium store. The team offered them token gifts in exchange.

"It's clearly an unusual time for the franchise," Byrne said. "I think the one thing that we've tried to be, historically . is that we've been transparent. So this is new territory for us. We're learning as we go."

Fans began lining up as early as 4 a.m. on the first day of the exchange Friday. By the time gates opened at 8 a.m. on Friday, there were estimated to be more than 1,000 people in a line that stretched at least halfway around the stadium.

The most requested jerseys, according to the team, were those of quarterback Joe Flacco and wide receiver Torrey Smith. Five other player jerseys also were available.

Ross Sober and his 9-year-old son, Logan, of Hampstead, Md., arrived at around 9:45 Saturday to find an imposing line that stretched much of the way around the stadium.

Still, they completed the exchange in 50 minutes, turning in two youth jerseys. Both Logan and his 12-year-old brother Griffin were hoping to land Lardarius Webb jerseys before the stock ran out.

Still, their father was quite pleased with the process.

"It was as rosy an event as you could hope for," Sober said. "The people at the counter where we got our voucher were smiling and happy. The guy noticed that we had a Super Bowl patch ironed on, and he ripped the patch off and gave it back to us. It was orderly, it was friendly and nobody was protesting. You couldn't ask for better."
