VIRTUAL REALITY-PHOBIAS

UNDATED — Dick Tracey didn’t have to visit a tall building to get over his fear of heights. He put on a virtual reality headset. Through VR, he rode an elevator to a high-rise atrium that looked so real he fell to his knees. For Denver librarian Nick Harrell, VR was a booster shot after traditional therapy for fear of flying. Panic drove him off a flight to Paris two years ago, forcing him to abandon a vacation with his girlfriend. By Carla K. Johnson. SENT: 950 words, photos.

BBN-ROCKIES-DODGERS

LOS ANGELES — Winner of his last five decisions, Clayton Kershaw starts for the Los Angeles Dodgers against fellow lefty Kyle Freeland and the Colorado Rockies. The teams are battling for the NL West lead. By Beth Harris. UPCOMING: 700 words, photos. Begins 8 p.m.

FBN--BLEMISHED BRONCOS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos coach Vance Joseph is criticizing his team’s conservative defensive play against the Oakland Raiders but takes responsibility rather than blaming defensive coordinator Joe Woods. The Broncos kept giving the Raiders eight-yard cushions and quarterback Derek Carr repeatedly threw quick strikes to those wide-open targets as he set a franchise record by completing 90.6 percent of his passes — 29 of 32 for 288 yards in Oakland’s 20-19 loss in Denver on Sunday.
