SPORTS:

COLTS-REDSKINS FOLO

UNDATED — The Indianapolis Colts’ defense looks primed and ready to face Carson Wentz and the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Fresh off holding the Washington Redskins without a touchdown in a 21-9 victory Sunday, the Colts (1-1) turn their attention to the Eagles (1-1), who are coming off an upset loss at Tampa Bay but could be getting Wentz back. If Wentz is cleared to return nine months after surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left knee, he’ll present another big challenge for Indy’s young group. By Sports Writer Stephen Whyno. SENT: 630 words. With AP Photos.

INDYCAR-SONOMA

SONOMA, Calif. — Scott Dixon was fully reclined, quietly watching NASCAR on television with friends, as the clock inched toward the IndyCar season finale. A fifth championship was one steady Sunday drive away and Dixon wasn’t the least bit stressed. Dixon needed only an uneventful Sunday at Sonoma Raceway to win the championship and sealed it by finishing second, the same place he started, behind Ryan Hunter-Reay. The fifth title moved him into second in IndyCar history, two behind A.J. Foyt. By Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer. SENT: 850 words. With AP Photos. Sent late Sunday.
