BOSTON (AP) — Jarrod Saltalamacchia (sahl-tah-lah-MAH'-kee-uh) singled home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth to cap the Boston Red Sox's wild comeback in a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers led 5-1 and were within four outs of taking a two-games-to-none lead in the American League Championship Series until David Ortiz belted a grand slam. Detroit starter Max Scherzer carried a no-hitter into the sixth and limited the Red Sox to a run and two hits while striking out 13 in seven innings.

UNDATED (AP) — The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are the NFL's only unbeaten teams after both won on Sunday. Peyton Manning threw for a pair of first-quarter touchdowns and Knowshon (NOH'-shahn) Moreno ran for three TDs in the second half as the Broncos beat Jacksonville 35-19 to improve to 6-0. The Chiefs are 6-0 after Jamaal Charles ran for two scores and Kansas City recorded 10 sacks in a 24-7 win over Oakland.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New Orleans was seconds away from improving to 6-0 until Tom Brady's first touchdown pass in two games gave the New England Patriots a 30-27 win over the Saints. Brady hit Kenbrell Thompkins for the go-ahead, 17-yard TD with five seconds left, less than 3 ½ minutes after Kenny Stills caught a 34-yard scoring strike from Drew Brees (breez) to put the Saints ahead 24-23.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — In the wake of his son's death, Adrian Peterson played for the Vikings in their 35-10 loss to the Panthers. Peterson finished with 62 yards on 10 carries, two days after learning his 2-year-old son died of injuries after an alleged attack in a child abuse case. The man charged in the case was home alone with the boy and called 911 to report the child was choking.

SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Walker has played himself into next year's Masters by winning for the first time in 188th career PGA starts. Walker closed with a 5-under-par 66 to finish two strokes ahead of Vijay Singh (VEE'-jay sing) at the Frys.com Open in California. The win also allows Walker to crack the top 50 for the first time and gets him a spot in the Tournament of Champions in Maui.
