Redskins 27, Bengals 27, OT

Tie won't be big draw for fans in London

LONDON — The sold-out crowd of 84,488 at Wembley Stadium left deflated and even puzzled as the regulation-time shootout between Kirk Cousins and Andy Dalton turned into an overtime comedy of errors as Washington and Cincinnati tied.

"It definitely feels more like a loss than a win, because we moved the ball so well and had so many opportunities to win," Cousins said.

Washington appeared to have the game won with 2:13 left in overtime, but former FSU kicker Dustin Hopkins hooked his 34-yard field goal attempt wide left.

Hopkins, whose first overtime attempt sailed smoothly through the uprights but was negated by a last-second Bengals timeout, appeared calm and unruffled in the locker room.

"It was slick out there, but that didn't have an effect on any of my kicks," said Hopkins, who also was badly short on a 55-yard attempt at the end of the first half.

Cincinnati gave the ball back with 1:11 remaining when Dalton fumbled at the Bengals 47 on a quarterback sneak. Cousins couldn't connect downfield and tossed his final desperate pass tamely into the sideline to preserve the draw. The unlikely result came a week after Seattle and Arizona tied 6-6.

    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.
