--Tom Brady threw his 500th career touchdown pass as the New England Patriots defeated the Indianapolis Colts 38-24.  The milestone TD was a 39 yard pass to Josh Gordon in the 4th quarter.  Brady joins Peyton Manning and Brett Favre as quarterbacks to have 500 TD passes. Anthony Calvillo is the CFL leader at 455.

--The Riders have signed two players with CFL experience.  They are defensive back Cauchy Muamba and running back Shaq Murray-Lawrence.  Meanwhile, Naaman Roosevelt did not practice with the club on Thursday as they returned to the field to start getting ready for Monday afternoon's home game versus Edmonton. Roosevelt was injured in the win over Toronto, but despite the fact he was put on the six-game injured list, head coach Chris Jones didn't think he would be out for long.

--Mike Moustakas hit a single in the 10th inning to bring home the winning run as Milwaukee beat Colorado 3-2 in Game 1 of their best of 5 National League Divisional Series.  The Rockies had tied the game at 2 scoring twice in the top of the 9th.  Meanwhile, the Dodgers got homers from Max Muncy, Enrique Hernandez and Joc Pederson in a 6-0 win over Atlanta in the first game of their NLDS.

--Kris Letang's 2nd goal of the game 1:20 in overtime lifted Pittsburgh to a 7-6 win over Washington in Thursday NHL play. Some other highlights saw Connor Hellebuyck stop 41 shots in a 5-1 Jets win over St. Louis and Patrick Kane scored in OT to give Chicago a 4-3 win over Ottawa.

-- A potential Calgary bid for the 2026 Winter Games is one of three that will be proposed as an official candidate for approval, International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said Thursday. Stockholm and the combined Italian bid of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo will also be proposed for approval by the IOC’s full membership next week, while the Turkish city of Erzurum has been dropped from the bidding contest. Calgary, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 1988, has yet to decide whether it wants to host another games. A plebiscite is scheduled for Nov. 13 asking Calgarians if they want the games again.
