We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Chelsea Gray's pull-up jumper with 2 seconds to play helped the Los Angeles Sparks avoid what would have been a stunning collapse and take Game 1 of the WNBA Finals, 85-84, over the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday.
 
     Gray scored a career-high 27 points and Candace Parker added 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Sparks, who joined their NFL brethren by sitting out the national anthem. The Sparks led 28-2 in the first quarter and 78-66 with five minutes to play, but gave it all back after a charge from the Lynx.
 
     Maya Moore scored 27 points and Sylvia Fowles had 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Lynx, who roared back from that 26-point hole to take an 84-83 lead with 6.5 seconds to play. But Gray got free to knock down a pull-up 14-footer, touching off a wild celebration by the defending champions, who are trying to become the first repeat winners since 2002.

     DETROIT (AP) - Jorge Polanco and Eduardo Escobar homered, and Minnesota beat the Detroit Tigers 10-4 on Sunday to complete a four-game sweep that moved the Twins closer to securing a wild-card berth in the playoffs. Polanco hit a solo homer in the first off Buck Farmer (4-5), and Escobar welcomed Victor Alcantara with a three-run drive in the sixth.
 
     Minnesota (82-74) began the day 4 1/2 games ahead of Kansas City, Texas and the Los Angeles Angels for the second AL wild card. The Twins outscored the Tigers 39-12 in the sweep.
 
     Detroit has lost seven straight and 14 of 16.  At 62-94, the Tigers will finish with their worst record since going 43-119 in 2003.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Case Keenum gave Minnesota a brilliant performance in relief of Sam Bradford, passing for three touchdowns and a career-high 369 yards without a turnover to guide the Vikings to a 34-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
 
     Stefon Diggs had 173 yards receiving and caught two of Keenum's throws for scores, one short and one long .
 
     Dalvin Cook produced 169 total yards plus his first NFL touchdown , which capped a 75-yard drive by the Vikings (2-1) to start the game.
 
     They never slowed down, building a 28-3 lead by early in the third quarter on their way to compiling 494 yards.
 
     Trae Waynes and Harrison Smith each picked off Jameis Winston in the end zone, and Andrew Sendejo returned an interception 36 yards in the fourth quarter to set up one of two field goals by Kai Forbath.
 
     Shadowed by Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes, Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans had a quiet game with seven catches for 67 yards. When the offense returned to the sideline following Winston's third interception, Evans was shown on the TV broadcast angrily shoving over a trash can by the bench.
 
     DeSean Jackson and Cameron Brate each had four touchdown receptions while Winston completed 28 of 40 passes for 328 yards, but the Buccaneers (1-1) simply couldn't overcome having to play from behind all afternoon. They converted only one of six third downs.
 
     Keenum, meanwhile, went 25 for 33 in the third 300-yard game of his career. With Bradford out for the second straight game because of an ailing left knee, the undrafted former practice squad player with 26 starts in six NFL seasons took full advantage of a Buccaneers defense depleted by injuries.
 
     Well protected by a vastly improved offensive line, Keenum was not sacked and only occasionally hurried. He put on a play-action passing clinic, finding Diggs and fellow wide receiver Adam Thielen (five catches, 98 yards) open at will.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal with 6:26 left in overtime set up by Aaron Rodgers' 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison, and the Green Bay Packers rallied to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24 on Sunday. Crosby's kick completed the Packers' comeback from a 21-7 halftime deficit.
 
     On third-and-10 from his 21, Rodgers took advantage of yet another free play after defensive end Michael Johnson was whistled for offside. Officials let the play continue and the two-time NFL MVP found Allison on about a 40-yard pass before the receiver beat a couple defenders for more yards.
 
     Crosby took care of the rest for the Packers (2-1).
 
     The winless Bengals (0-3) won the toss in overtime but went three-and-out on their opening drive. It was so loud at Lambeau Field that they had to call timeout before their first overtime snap.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Jordan Howard has led the Chicago Bears to their first win in nine September games over three seasons under coach John Fox.
 
     Howard had 138 of Chicago's 220 yards rushing and scored the winning touchdown in overtime to give the Bears a 23-17 triumph over the Steelers. He raced 19 yards for the game-ending TD 7:33 into the extra period after rookie Tarik Cohen initially appeared to score on a 73-yard burst.  Cohen was ruled out of bounds at the Pittsburgh 37, but Howard's run dropped the Steelers' all-time record in Chicago to 1-13.
 
     Ben Roethlisberger threw for 235 yards and a touchdown for the 2-1 Steelers.
 
     Checking out the rest of Sunday's NFL schedule:
 
     - Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 25 of his 30 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns in an impressive 27-10 triumph over the Raiders. The 2-1 Redskins piled up 472 yards, sacked Derek Carr four times and held Oakland to 128 total yards.  Carr had thrown 112 consecutive passes before being picked off twice, one coming on the game's second play.
 
     - Aaron Rodgers' 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison set up Mason Crosby's 26-yard field goal in overtime to lift the Packers past the Bengals, 27-24. Green Bay trailed 21-7 in the second half until Jordy Nelson sandwiched a pair of TD receptions around a Crosby field goal. Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 313 yards, including a game-tying, three-yard scoring strike to Nelson with just 17 seconds left in regulation.
 
     - The Chiefs are 3-0 after Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes in the first 9 1/2 minutes of a 24-10 win against the Chargers. Terrance Mitchell had two interceptions and rookie Kareem Hunt scored on a 69-yard run to seal the outcome. Hunt had 172 yards on 17 carries in Kansas City's seventh straight win over the Chargers.
 
     - The Patriots pulled out a 36-33 win over the Texans on Tom Brady's 25-yard scoring strike to Brandin Cooks with 23 seconds left. Brady finished 25 of 35 for 378 yards as New England won its fifth straight regular-season meeting with Houston. Texans rookie Deshaun Watson completed 22 of 33 passes for 301 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
 
     - The Vikings got a nice performance from backup quarterback Case Keenum as he passed for a career-high 369 yards and three TDs without a turnover in a 34-17 verdict over the Buccaneers. Stefon Diggs had 173 yards receiving and caught two of Keenum's scoring throws to help the 2-1 Vikings drop Tampa Bay to 1-1. Trae Waynes and Harrison Smith each picked off Jameis Winston in the end zone, and Andrew Sendejo returned an interception 36 yards in the fourth quarter to set up one of two field goals by Kai Forbath.
 
     - Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson passed for 373 yards and four TDs, but the Titans trumped that by scoring 21 straight points to beat the Seahawks, 33-27. Marcus Mariota threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns, while DeMarco Murray highlighted his 115-yard rushing day with a 75-yard TD run. Wilson pulled Seattle within 33-27 with an 8-yard TD to Paul Richardson with 1:50 left, but the Titans recovered the onside kick.
 
     - Jake Elliott drilled a 61-yard field goal as time expired to give the Eagles a 27-24 victory over the 0-3 Giants. It was redemption for Elliott, who missed from 52 yards earlier in the game after failing to hit a 30-yarder and an extra point last weekend. The Eagles improved to 2-1 despite Eli Manning's three touchdown passes during a 5:21 span of the fourth quarter, which put New York ahead 21-14.
 
     - Blake Bortles threw three of his four touchdown passes to tight end Marcedes Lewis as the Jaguars routed the Ravens, 44-7 in London. The Jaguars finished with 410 yards and handed the Ravens their worst defeat since a 37-0 setback at Pittsburgh 20 years ago. Only a six-yard pass from backup Ryan Mallett to Benjamin Watson with 3:24 remaining prevented the shutout.
 
     - Drew Brees passed for 220 yards and three touchdowns as the Saints defeated the previously unbeaten Panthers, 34-13. Brees led six scoring drives and threw TD passes to Michael Thomas, Brandon Coleman and ex-Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. as the Saints avoided an 0-3 start. Rookie Alvin Kamara's 25-yard TD run with 4:42 left sealed the outcome.
 
     - Josh McCown heaved a 69-yard TD pass to Robby Anderson and the Jets stifled Jay Cutler and the Dolphins' offense in a 20-6 victory. McCown finished 18 of 23 for 249 yards for the 1-2 Jets, who also got a touchdown run from Bilal Powell and a pair of Chandler Catanzaro field goals. Miami managed just 225 total yards and didn't score until Cutler threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker on the final play.
 
     - Tyrod Taylor threw two touchdowns and the Bills intercepted Trevor Siemian twice in the final 19 minutes of a 26-16 victory against the Broncos. Taylor was 20 of 26 for 213 yards to help Buffalo overcome Denver's defensive performance on LeSean McCoy, who carried 14 times for just 21 yards. The Bills went ahead 20-16 on Taylor's six-yard pass to Clay with 6:20 left in the third quarter.
 
     - Jacoby Brissett ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as the Colts outlasted the Browns, 31-28. Brisssett was 17 of 24 with 259 yards for the Colts, who took a 28-7 lead on Frank Gore's four-yard run with 2:41 left in the first half. Cleveland slowly trimmed its deficit but had a pair of second-half scoring chances snuffed out by Rashaan Melvin's interceptions.
 
     - The Falcons were able to celebrate a 30-26 win over the Lions after Matthew Stafford's pass to Golden Tate in the final seconds was ruled to be just short of the goal line. The defending NFC champion Falcons overcame Matt Ryan's three interceptions and many other mistakes to improve to 3-0 and drop the Lions to 2-1. Ryan's second scoring pass broke a 23-all tie 10 seconds into the fourth quarter.

The Bosox now enjoy a five-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East, while the Cubs are five games clear of the Brewers in the NL Central.

     The Cubs beat the Brewers for the third time in four days as Jose Quintana struck out 10 while firing a three-hitter in Chicago's 5-0 shutout at Milwaukee. Quintana was staked to a 1-0 lead until Ben Zobrist belted a two-run homer in the seventh inning. Anthony Rizzo added a two-run double and Kris Bryant doubled home a run as Chicago dropped the Brewers two games behind Colorado for the second NL wild card.
 
     Elsewhere around the majors:

      LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Kyle Busch earned a berth in the second round of NASCAR's playoffs with a dominant victory at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
 
     Busch slipped through smoke from a multi-car crash on the backstretch that ended Martin Truex Jr.'s run at a second straight win. Truex won the playoff opener at Chicagoland last weekend and led 112 laps early at Loudon until he was caught up in a wreck that ended his shot at a sixth win.
 
     Playoff drivers filled the top five spots, with runner-up Kyle Larson followed by Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski and Truex.
 
     The field will be cut from 16 drivers to 12 following next week's race at Dover International Speedway.

Schauffele closed with a 2-under 68 to become the first PGA Tour rookie to win the Tour Championship since it began in 1987. However, Thomas played well enough to claim the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus. Thomas earned five victories this year, including his first major at the PGA Championship.
