LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nick Sherry had a career-game for UNLV. It just wasn't enough to help the Rebels end an eight-game losing streak and beat Washington State. Sherry passed for 351 yards and three touchdowns and had 33 completions to tie a school record set by Jon Denton in 1996 against San Jose State. He couldn't rally the Rebels from a 15-point fourth quarter deficit and UNLV fell 35-27 to the Cougars on Friday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — The replacement officials' error that awarded an extra timeout to Seattle in the final minute of its loss at Arizona was the third such mistake in an NFL game in the last nine years. In 2009, the Cleveland Browns were mistakenly awarded four timeouts in the second half of a 16-0 home loss to Baltimore. And in 2003, the Baltimore Ravens got four in a 44-41 overtime win against Seattle.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Forget all the hand-wringing surrounding the Seattle Seahawks' final drive against Arizona, the botched timeout situation and ultimately Russell Wilson's last pass attempt that eluded the hands of Braylon Edwards at the goal line. For all the focus on that one drive, there were plenty of other opportunities the Seahawks missed earlier in the 20-16 loss to the Cardinals.

SEATTLE (AP) — A.J. Griffin not only felt the burden of trying to end the Oakland Athletics' three-game losing streak. There also was the weight of heavy hearts over teammate Brandon McCarthy.

SEATTLE (AP) — Felix Hernandez handed the ball to his manager and strolled off the mound as a sea of yellow rose with a roaring acknowledgment not only of his latest effort, but another opportunity to express appreciation for his perfect game nearly a week ago. King Felix wasn't perfect Tuesday night against Cleveland. He was still dominant.

DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning drew his biggest ovation on an incompletion.
