Bills 19, Cardinals 16, OT

Bills get last kick in an odd finale

GLENDALE, Ariz. — A record kick tied it for Arizona, a tipped one kept Buffalo in it, and Rian Lindell's chip shot from 25 yards gave the Bills an improbable win. The three kicks took place in the final frantic moments of a typically wacky NFL game in the desert.

Jarius Byrd's second interception set up Lindell's winner 3:50 into OT, which ended Arizona's home winning streak at eight.

Byrd, limited in practice last week with a chest injury, picked off John Skelton — who replaced injured Kevin Kolb — and returned it 29 yards to the Arizona 6.

Arizona's Jay Feely, a Tampa Jesuit grad, made a franchise-record 61-yard field goal with 1:09 left in regulation to tie it at 16. But his 38-yarder as the fourth quarter ended was tipped by Buffalo defensive tackle Alex Carrington and careened off the left upright.

"You go from on top of the world to feeling about as low as you can feel," Feely said.

Kolb was hit for his fifth sack and left with a rib and chest injury.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
