NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara combined for 237 yards from scrimmage, the Saints' resurgent defense forced five turnovers and scored a franchise-record three times, and New Orleans took a 52-38 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday in a game full of crazy bounces and unusual plays. New Orleans (3-2), which has a winning record for the first time since its last playoff season in 2013, built a five-touchdown lead, only to wind up gutting out a remarkable bid by Detroit to pull off the greatest comeback in NFL history.

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Brad Keselowski picked up the win he needed to continue his championship chances with a victory Sunday in a sloppy playoff race at Talladega Superspeedway. Keselowski passed Ryan Newman on the high side of the track to take the lead, and then used a crossover move to hold off Newman and Team Penske teammate Joey Logano to secure the win.

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Having the best team in NASCAR has paid off, finally, for Furniture Row Racing. The team on Sunday announced a full sponsorship package for Martin Truex Jr. in 2018 with Bass Pro Shops, 5-hour Energy and Auto Owners Insurance. Since its inception, the team has primarily been funded out of team owner Barney Visser's pocket.

CARY, N.C. (AP) - Colin Montgomerie earned his second PGA Tour Champions victory in five weeks on Sunday, a three-stroke win at the SAS Championship. Montgomerie shot a bogey-free, 8-under 64 in his final round at Prestonwood Country Club. He earned $315,000 for his sixth career victory on the 50-and-over tour, and improved two spots to No. 7 in the Charles Schwab Cup standings in the tour's regular-season finale.
