Manning limps to lopsided loss

DENVER — Peyton Manning is hurt — and sorry he hurt his team.

"I thought I felt good enough to play," Manning said after the worst day of his career in Denver's loss to Kansas City. "Maybe it was a false feeling or a wrong feeling."

Manning's right foot, right shoulder and ribs are injured.

Though he broke the NFL record for passing yards (see notebook) Manning threw for just 35 yards on 5-of-20 passing, zero touchdowns and four interceptions before being benched in favor of Brock Osweiler.

"He's still a great quarterback — just not what he used to be," Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak accepted blame, saying he was kicking himself for playing Manning in the first place.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
