Nick Foles threw a tying touchdown pass with 3:25 to go, and then set up Cody Parkey for the winning 36-yard field goal as time expired, lifting Philadelphia to a 30-27 win at Indianapolis on Monday night.

The Eagles (2-0) have won six straight road openers.

Indianapolis (0-2) has lost consecutive regular-season games for the first time since Andrew Luck and Chuck Pagano arrived in 2012.

The Colts led most of the night, including 27-20 late in the game. But Luck's late interception led to Foles' tying 6-yard TD pass to Jeremy Maclin, and after another three-and-out by the Colts, Foles drove the Eagles into position for the winning field goal.

Blue Hens look to get healthier in bye week
By Don Voltz & Sean Greene

VIDEO: Dave Brock's Weekly Press Conference
After a late comeback victory Saturday, the Blue Hens are welcoming a chance to get healthier during this week's bye week.

Delaware came out of Saturday's 28-25 victory over Colgate reasonably healthy, but Head Coach Dave Brock says some players will be taking the week off for pre-planned "procedures" to deal with pre-existing nicks.

One of those players is Jerel Harrison, whose sore ankle was going to lead to a week off anyway. Brock said Monday he would be surprised if Harrison isn't ready by the start of full preparation for JMU on Sunday, and certainly by Tuesday.

He also updated the health of defensive lineman Laith Wallschleger who has yet to play this season. Brock says the senior still needs to pass strength tests, but ultimately says Laith's comfort level with the knee will be the guide to when, or if, he returns to the field. He would not put a time table on a potential return.

Delaware is planning practices on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, before taking Saturday off. They will return Sunday for a practice which will begin the normal week of preparation for a game week.

Brock says they will focus on getting better in the three phases this week, but will also keep an eye to James Madison, where Delaware travels on September 27 to open conference play.

Papelbon suspended 7 games by MLB
By Associated Press

Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended seven games and fined by Major League Baseball for making a lewd gesture and then bumping an umpire.

Papelbon said in a statement Monday night that he would immediately begin serving the suspension given by the commissioner's office and that he was sorry for making contact with umpire Joe West on Sunday.

But the right-hander says that he wasn't making a gesture toward fans as he walked off the field to boos in the ninth inning of Philadelphia's 5-4, home loss to the Miami Marlins. He apologized to Phillies fans in the statement.

Papelbon was ejected by West after the umpire thought Papelbon grabbed his crotch while walking off the field after blowing a save.

Cashner lifts Padres past Phillies, 1-0
By Jay Paris/AP

Andrew Cashner pitched a two-hitter for his third career shutout and the San Diego Padres scored on Cody Asche's fielding error in the second inning Monday night to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0.

Casher (4-7) allowed two hits, struck out seven and walked one in winning for the second straight time after going winless since April 16 against Colorado. Cashner has a franchise-best 17 straight home starts where he's allowed two or fewer earned runs.

Jerome Williams (3-2) limited the Padres to an unearned run, three hits and two walks in 7 2-3 innings.

The Padres scored in the second, when Rene Rivera opened the inning with a double. He scored when Cashner hit a hard grounder to Asche at third. Asche tried to backhand the ball, but was unable to do more than knock it down in drawing the error.

Orioles beat Blue Jays 5-2, near AL East title
By David Ginsburg/AP

The Baltimore Orioles moved to the brink of claiming their first AL East title in 17 years, using a resilient pitching performance by Wei-Yin Chen to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 Monday night.

Baltimore can clinch the division crown with a win over Toronto on Tuesday. That would assure the Orioles their second playoff berth in three years following a run of 14 consecutive losing seasons.

Baltimore (90-60) leads the AL East by 12 1/2 games, its biggest advantage since 1979.

Chen (16-4) allowed two runs on nine hits over 5 2-3 innings to become the first Orioles lefty to win 16 games since Jimmy Key in 1997 - the year Baltimore last won the AL East. Although he yielded at least one hit in every inning but the second, Chen improved to 13-2 in 23 starts since May 9.

Zach Britton worked the ninth for his 35th save in 39th opportunities.
