NFL-PATRIOTS-BILLS

 

Pats win fifth straight

 

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – After losing a third straight game, the Buffalo Bills are now 2-and-6 for the season, and they’ve scored just 87 points.

 

The New England Patriots beat the Bills last night, 25-6, even though Tom Brady was held without a touchdown pass for the first time this season. It was New England’s fifth straight win, improving their AFC-leading record to 6-and-2.

 

LeSean McCoy, who has missed one game with a groin injury, has just 257 yards rushing through eight games for the Bills. That’s 20 yards more than he had in his first two games with Philadelphia in 2013, when McCoy finished with an NFL-leading 1,607 yards rushing.

 

NFL-LONDON

 

Four regular-season NFL games planned in London

 

LONDON (AP) – The NFL says it will play four regular-season games in London next year, two at Wembley Stadium and two at the new stadium being built for Premier League team Tottenham.

 

The NFL did not say which teams would be making the trip, or when the games will be played.

 

The league played three games in London this year in three straight weeks. All three games were at Wembley. One game had been scheduled for Tottenham but it was moved because the stadium is not ready.

 

The NFL started playing games in London in 2007. Since then, the league has staged 24 regular-season games in the British capital and 29 of the 32 teams have made the trip at least once.

 

NBA-SCHEDULE

 

Cavaliers look for first win

 

CLEVELAND (AP) – The Cleveland Cavaliers are hoping a coaching change will bring them their first victory of this NBA season. The Cavs are 0-and-6 as they prepare to host Atlanta tonight.

 

Larry Drew, who was the top assistant coach under Tyronn Lue for the past two years, is in charge now after Lue was fired. But Drew has said that after tonight, nothing is definite when it comes to his coaching status.

 

In other NBA action tonight (all times Eastern):

 

Miami at Charlotte, 7 p.m.

 

Sacramento at Orlando, 7 p.m.

 

Detroit at Boston, 7:30 p.m.

MLB-RED SOX

 

Red Sox return home ahead of parade

 

BOSTON (AP) – The World Series champion Boston Red Sox have a day to rest up before tomorrow’s parade in Boston.

 

The team returned to Fenway Park last night, carrying the championship trophy they won a night earlier.

 

A caravan of buses arrived at Fenway, less than 24 hours after the Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to win the World Series in five games, giving the organization its fourth title since 2004.

 

A couple hundred fans and about a half-dozen TV cameras were waiting for the team.

 

Fans started cheering when the buses arrived and roared when catcher Christian Vazquez got off the second bus holding the trophy.

 

Steve Pearce hit two homers and drove in three runs in the clincher, earning World Series MVP honors.
