NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans ended an 11-game losing streak to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night with a big pass and a big defensive play.Marcus Mariota's tiebreaking 53-yard touchdown strike to rookie Taywan Taylor with 5:29 left in the game, coupled with Wesley Woodyard's stop of quarterback Jacoby Brissett on fourth down with 2:19 remaining, gave Tennessee a 36-22 victory at Nissan Stadium.

NLCS: Justin Turner blasts Los Angeles Dodgers past Chicago Cubs

Sports
LOS ANGELES -- With Hollywood as its neighbor, Los Angeles is no stranger to dramatic endings. And with his game-winning, three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner certainly attained movie star status. The 4-1 victory gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and plenty of momentum heading to Chicago for Game 3 on Tuesday. Before Turner's heroics, the game was a battle of bullpens. One night after taking out ace Clayton Kershaw after five innings, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did the same with Rich Hill, even though Hill had allowed just one run. The move paid off -- again -- as four Dodgers relievers were nearly perfect over four...
