     LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sylvia Fowles scored 22 points and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Los Angeles Sparks 80-69 on Sunday night to force a decisive Game 5 in the WNBA Finals.
 
     Maya Moore and the Lynx will try for their fourth championship in seven years on Wednesday night at home. The Sparks won Game 5 at Minnesota last season to take the crown.
 
     Candace Parker and the Sparks are hoping to become the league's first repeat champion since Los Angeles in 2002.
 
     For the second consecutive year, the Lynx found themselves down 2-1 on the Sparks' court. And just like last season, Minnesota pushed the series to a winner-take-all game.
 
     Facing an end to their season, the Lynx were aggressive from the start, grabbing a lot of loose balls and dominating the glass. They trailed 10-8 before scoring 11 straight points in the first quarter. Minnesota led the rest of the way.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Bartolo Colon made a final bid to be included in Minnesota's postseason rotation, pitching one-run ball into the seventh inning to lead the Twins to a 5-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers in the regular-season finale Sunday.
 
     Jason Castro homered and drove in three runs for the Twins, who play an AL wild-card game in New York against the Yankees on Tuesday night. A win would put the Twins in an ALDS against Cleveland, where Minnesota may need an experienced arm like Colon (5-6).
 
     Anibal Sanchez (3-7) gave up three runs and seven hits and struck out six in five innings for the Tigers, who missed the postseason for the third straight year and will go into the offseason looking for a manager to replace Brad Ausmus. Alex Presley hit a solo homer in the third inning.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Anthony Zettel led a ferocious performance by Detroit's defense with two sacks, four hurries and a fumble recovery, as the Lions forced three turnovers while holding Minnesota scoreless in the second half on the way to a 14-7 victory over the Vikings on Sunday afternoon.
 
     The Lions turned two fumbles lost by the Vikings in the third quarter into 11 points, taking the lead on Ameer Abdullah's 1-yard touchdown run five plays after rookie Dalvin Cook fumbled at the Minnesota 29.
 
     The Vikings (2-2) lost more than just possession, when Cook limped off with an injury to his left knee and did not return.
 
     Tahir Whitehead recovered that fumble for the Lions, plus one by Adam Thielen with 1:43 left at the Detroit 45 that ended the last-chance drive for the Vikings.
 
     Detroit (3-1) leads the NFL in turnover margin, at plus-9.
 
     Abdullah came close to ending a four-year stretch by the Lions without a 100-yard rusher, finishing with 94 yards on 20 carries before leaving the game with an undisclosed injury.
 
     Matthew Stafford was sacked six times for 55 yards, but he hung on to the ball each time and completed 19 of 31 passes for 209 yards plus the key 2-point conversion to T.J. Jones to give the Lions a seven-point lead.
 
     Case Keenum started in place of Sam Bradford at quarterback for the Vikings for the third straight game, going 16 for 30 for 219 yards. He was sacked by Zettel for an 11-yard loss on third-and-goal from the 3 right before the two-minute warning, and his fourth down heave into the end zone sailed over Thielen's head.
 
     The Vikings had only 120 yards in the second half.
 
     As dominant as their defense was, they still made some costly mistakes. Xavier Rhodes, Anthony Barr and Trae Waynes each had their hands on passes by Stafford that could've realistically been intercepted.
 
     On the last play of the first quarter, Stafford found Marvin Jones open in a hole in the zone coverage for a leaping 38-yard completion on third-and-17 that set up the first of two field goals by Matt Prater.
 
     Prater's second kick was made possible by a botched play that started with a direct snap to running back Jerick McKinnon, who faked an inside handoff to Cook and tried to take off on an option play before fumbling.
 
     Cook had 13 carries for 66 yards and a touchdown before he was hurt. Latavius Murray took over after that.
 
     Vikings coach Mike Zimmer fell to 2-5 in his against the Lions, who have won nine of the past 14 meetings with their NFC North rival.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Los Angeles Rams are 3-1 for the second consecutive year, except they could be for real this time. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys.
 
     Todd Gurley was the key contributor for the Rams in a 35-30 victory over the Cowboys, providing 215 total yards and scoring the go-ahead TD on a 53-yard catch and run. Gurley finished with 121 yards rushing and 94 receiving as the Rams overcame two first-half touchdowns from Ezekiel Elliott.
 
     Greg Zuerlein kicked a career-high seven field goals as the Rams dropped the Cowboys to 2-2.
 
     Los Angeles erased an eight-point, halftime deficit to match their four-game start of a year ago. The 2016 Rams lost 11 of their last 12 games.
 
     Also in the NFL:
 
     - Stephen Hauschka drilled a tiebreaking, 56-yard field goal with 4:44 remaining before the Bills made a last-minute defensive stand to beat Atlanta 23-17. Buffalo's defense stopped the Falcons at the Bills 10 when Matt Ryan couldn't complete a fourth-down pass to Taylor Gabriel. The Bills' defense also created points as Tre'Davious White returned a fumble 52 yards for a third-quarter touchdown.
 
     - The Broncos held Marshawn Lunch to 12 yards on nine carries and sent quarterback Derek Carr to the sideline with a back injury before completing a 16-10 win over the Raiders. Denver's only touchdown was a one-handed grab of Trevor Siemian's 22-yard pass by tight end A.J. Derby. The Raiders still has a chance to win until safety Justin Simmons' interception of EJ Manuel at the Denver 8 with under two minutes left.
 
     - The Seahawks scored two touchdowns in a 13-second span late in the third quarter to take control of an eventual 46-18 rout of the 1-3 Colts. The game was tied at 18 until J.D. McKissic scored from 30 yards out on his second NFL career, seconds before Bobby Wagner scooped up Marcus Smith's forced fumble and rumbled 21 yards for a score. Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes and two interceptions for the 2-2 Seahawks, but his most important play was a 23-yard run in the third quarter to give Seattle an 18-15 lead.
 
     - The Panthers pulled out a 33-30 win at New England on Graham Gano's 48-yard field goal as time expired. Cam Newton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the 3-1 Panthers rolled up 444 total yards. Jonathan Stewart had 68 yards on 14 carries to pass DeAngelo Williams and become the franchise's all-time leading rusher.
 
     - The Jets are tied with the Patriots in the AFC East at 2-2 after Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 41-yard field goal with 28 seconds left in overtime to lift New York over Jacksonville, 23-20. Bilal Powell rushed for a career-high 163 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown that helped the Jets drop the Jaguars to 2-and-2. Rookie Elijah McGuire had a 69-yard score and finished with 93 yards rushing for the Jets, who coughed up a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter before winning for the second straight week.
 
     - Le'Veon Bell's 144 yards rushing and two TDs highlighted the Steelers' offense in a 26-9 win at Baltimore. Pittsburgh recorded two interceptions and four sacks of Joe Flacco, who completed 31 of 49 throws for 235 yards. The 2-2 Ravens trailed 19-0 at halftime, generated only 154 yards through three quarters and stumbled through a second straight game with only one touchdown.
 
     - Detroit was a 14-7 winner at Minnesota as Anthony Zettel led the Lions' stingy defense with two sacks, four hurries and a fumble recovery. The Lions turned two Vikings fumbles into 11 third-quarter points, taking the lead on Ameer Abdullah's 1-yard touchdown run five plays after rookie Dalvin Cook fumbled at the Minnesota 29. Tahir Whitehead recovered a pair of fumbles, the last one coming with 1:45 remaining and the Vikings near midfield.
 
     - The Eagles are 3-1 after Carson Wentz passed for 242 yards and LeGarrette Blount rushed for 136 in a 26-24 triumph over the winless Chargers. Blount rushed for 88 yards in the fourth quarter alone, and Philadelphia ran out the clock after Hunter Henry's TD catch got the Chargers within two points with 6:44 to play. Rookie Jake Elliott kicked four field goals as the Eagles sent Los Angeles to its ninth consecutive loss since last season.
 
     - Nick Folk missed two field goals and an extra point before redeeming himself with a 34-yard kick as time expired to give the Buccaneers a 25-23 win over the Giants. Jameis Winston threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns without an interception in Tampa Bay's second win in three games. The Giants are 0-4 after losing on a last-second field goal for the second straight week.
 
     - DeShaun Watson's offense at Houston is looking a lot like his offense at Clemson as the rookie accounted for five touchdowns in the Texans' 57-14 throttling of the Titans. The 2016 Heisman Trophy runner-up became the first rookie to throw four touchdowns and run for another since Fran Tarkenton in 1961.  Tennessee QB Marcus Mariota threw for 96 yards and ran for 39, but he was intercepted twice before leaving the game in the third quarter with a hamstring injury.
 
     - Held to 33 points in losing their first three games, the Bengals rode Andy Dalton's four scoring strikes to a 31-7 rout of the Browns in Cleveland. Dalton was 17 of 18 for 215 yards as the Bengals built a 21-0 halftime lead before dropping the Browns to 0-4. Tyler Croft grabbed a TD pass in each half to help the Bengals drop the Browns to 1-19 under coach Hue Jackson.
 
     - The Saints were winners in London as Drew Brees passed for 268 yards and two TDs in a 20-0 shutout of the Dolphins. Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara grabbed touchdown passes after New Orleans carried a meager 3-0 lead into the second half. Jay Cutler completed 20 of his 28 passes, but Miami compiled only 185 total yards in its first shutout loss since December 2013.
 
     - Carson Palmer hit Larry Fitzgerald for a 19-yard TD with 32 seconds left in overtime to give the Cardinals an 18-15 win against the 49ers. The scoring had been limited to nine field goals until Palmer directed a seven-play, 75-yard drive after the two-minute warning. Robbie Gould's (gohldz) fifth field goal of the day put San Francisco ahead with 2:24 remaining in OT.

     UNDATED (AP) - With the playoff matchups already set, the final day of the major league regular season focused on individual achievement.
 
     Giancarlo Stanton came up short in his bid to become the sixth player to hit at least 60 homers in a season, ending up with major league-highs of 59 home runs and 132 RBIs following the Marlins' 8-5 loss to Atlanta. Stanton was inserted into the leadoff spot to give him a better opportunity to get his milestone homer, but he went 2-for-5 and struck out in the ninth inning before receiving a standing ovation and taking a curtain call.

     Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a three-run homer and Gregor Blanco contributed three hits, two walks and three steals as the Diamondbacks mauled the Royals, 14-2. Pending free agents Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain and Alcides Escobar were lifted in the fifth inning to a standing ovation in what could have been their final game with Kansas City.
 
     - Jay Bruce had a two-run single to reach the 100-RBI mark, and the Indians claimed their AL-leading 102nd win with a 3-1 verdict over the White Sox. Josh Tomlin pitched into the sixth inning and Jose Ramirez hit his league-high 56th double in Cleveland's final game before the ALDS.
 
     - Deck McGuire picked up his first big league win with five shutout innings against the NL Central champs, leading the Reds to a 3-1 win over the Cubs. Chicago manager Joe Maddon emptied his bench by the fifth inning as the team preps for its NL division series with Washington.

     - The Giants pulled out a 5-4 win over the Padres on Pablo Sandoval's walk-off, solo homer in the ninth. Johnny Cueto struggled in what might have been his final start with San Francisco, yielding four runs and 12 hits in just five innings.
 
     - Blake Snell struck out a career-high 13 and allowed just two hits in seven innings of the Rays' 6-0 shutout of the Orioles. Curt Casali hit his first homer of the season before Tampa Bay scored five times in the eighth to put the game out of reach.
