SEATTLE (AP) - Washington's sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals gave the Nationals the distinction of being the final National League team to reach the World Series. Now there's only one team in the major leagues that has never reached the Fall Classic. The Seattle Mariners have been to three AL Championship Series and were sent home each time. The Mariners have never played beyond Oct. 22.
UNDATED (AP) - Forty-seven years since the Miami Dolphins had the only undefeated season in NFL history, the team is heading toward an ignominious record. The Dolphins are 0-5 and on pace to score only 134 points, which would be the fewest by any team in a 16-game season in the 100-year history of the NFL. The 1992 Seattle Seahawks scored 140 and were 2-14.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon's defense has been revived under new defensive coordinator Andy Avalos and it is having a historic run for the No. 12 Ducks. Oregon has reeled off five straight wins after dropping its season opener against Auburn. The Ducks now sit atop the Pac-12's North Division at 3-0, their best start in conference play since 2013.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle defensive tackle Jarran Reed is back after missing the first six games of the season due to a suspension. The timing of his return couldn't be any better for a defensive front that has yet to have the kind of impact the Seahawks expected. The Seahawks finally got Ziggy Ansah healthy and they added Jadeveon Clowney via trade and are hoping they can team with Reed to make a major difference.
