UNDATED (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson says Nick Foles will start for the defending Super Bowl champion against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. Carson Wentz still hasn't been medically cleared for contact as he comes back from surgery last December to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee. Foles was the Super Bowl MVP in Philadelphia's 41-33 win over New England.
NEW YORK (AP) — John Millman pulled off the biggest surprise in Monday's men's fourth-round action at the U.S. Open. The 55th-ranked Millman dropped the first set before ousting five-time champion Roger Federer.

NEW YORK (AP) — American Madison Keys has moved into the U.S. Open quarterfinals with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Dominika Cibulkova (see-bul-KOH'-vah).

NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Bryson DeChambeau closed with a 4-under 67 to capture the Dell Technologies Championship near Boston by two strokes over Justin Rose. DeChambeau became only the second player to win the opening two FedEx Cup playoff events as he tries to earn a captain's pick on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. He pulled away with three straight birdies to close out the front nine and was never seriously challenged the rest of the way.
