O's call on Chen to open four-game series in New York
After 382 games at the new Yankee Stadium and 1,429 in New York overall, Derek Jeter is down to four more. On Monday, the future Hall of Famer will begin the final home series of his illustrious career against the Orioles, and he's going to savor every minute of it. There won't be any days off for the 14-time All-Star as the Yankees continue to hold onto a sliver of hope for the postseason. Baltimore's Wei-Yin Chen squares off with New York's Michael Pineda in the opener.

O's late rally falls short in finale with Red Sox
The Orioles walked off the field on Sunday afternoon knowing this wouldn't be their last time at Camden Yards in 2014. And that was a really good feeling. While the O's regular-season home finale -- a 3-2 loss to last-place Boston -- was pretty forgettable, Baltimore has a chance to create some much more meaningful memories when the calendar flips to October.

Call upheld in Red Sox-Orioles finale
After Caleb Joseph hit a grounder in the seventh inning, the Red Sox thought the inning should have been over. Ryan Flaherty was called out at second, but Joseph was ruled safe at first. After a review of 3 minutes, 35 seconds for John Farrell's challenge, the call was upheld.

O's allowing Markakis, Pearce to heal
Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce were both noticeably absent again from Sunday's starting lineup, although Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he wasn't overly concerned and expected both to play during the team's upcoming four-game series in New York.

Cowboys, Eagles and Ravens pull off comeback wins (The Associated Press)
Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys were big-time comeback kids in Week 3 of the NFL season. So were Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. Peyton Manning rallied the Denver Broncos back in a Super Bowl rematch, but Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks came up with the victory - as they did seven months ago on football's biggest stage.

ICYMI: NFL's off-field issues in news; QB catches (The Associated Press)
There will be plenty of NFL off-field news to talk about yet again over the coming week, when Commissioner Roger Goodell is supposed to meet with players' union leader DeMaurice Smith to discuss how to fix the league's personal-conduct policy. How the Ravens handled that case is under scrutiny because of an ESPN report released Friday, the same day Goodell delivered a widely criticized performance at a news conference short on specifics as he emerged from a lengthy silence to take questions about the recent series of domestic violence cases involving NFL players. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh was asked about that ESPN report after Sunday's 23-21 victory at Cleveland - and it seems safe to say that won't be the last time the topic is raised. In case you missed it, here are the other top topics after the NFL season's third Sunday: PLAYS OF THE DAY: If you haven't seen 'em, go find 'em online - a pair of catches by QBs.

"Cool" Joe Flacco rallies Ravens past Browns 23-21 (The Associated Press)
As the game got tighter and time started slipping away from the Ravens, quarterback Joe Flacco only got calmer. He's always that way against Cleveland. ''We call him, 'Joe Cool,''' said wide receiver Steve Smith. On Sunday, Flacco lived up to his nickname once again.

Roethlisberger leads Steelers to thorough dismantling of Panthers (Shutdown Corner)
By the time Week Three rolls around, we can start to see the outlines of how a season's going to go. The Carolina Panthers may not be who we thought they were. The Pittsburgh Steelers, as it turns out, may be a whole lot more. The Steelers beat the Panthers in a game that wasn't even that close. Pittsburgh threw around Carolina like sacks of dog food on both sides of the ball. Pittsburgh's well-coached, well-managed, well-played game handed Carolina its first home loss since Week One of 2013. A dull exhibition of field goals — four in the first half, three by Pittsburgh — exploded into an exceptional offensive display by the Steelers, starting with a dropped-from-the-sky touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown. Following a monstrous 81-yard run by Le'Veon Bell, Roethlisberger again connected with Brown, putting the Steelers up 23-6 and effectively ending Carolina's last chance at a victory. It got uglier, however, with Carolina punt returner Philly Brown muffing a kick, then compounding his own problem by trying to run with the fumbled ball rather than falling on it. The Steelers descended on him, the ball ended up in the end zone, and Pittsburgh walked away with another touchdown as the fans walked into the Charlotte night. This was a landmark evening for Pittsburgh from a statistical perspective. Bell's run was the longest in the NFL this season and the longest by a Steeler since Jon Fuqua in 1970, 44 years ago. Bell and Blount both hit triple figures in rushing, the first time Pittsburgh had pulled off that feat in nearly 30 years. For the Panthers, Cam Newton was 24 of 35 for 250 yards and a touchdown, a respectable total albeit much padded when the game was out of reach. Carolina wisely pulled Newton with five minutes left in the game, inserting Derek Anderson to prevent further injury to a still-healing Newton. So where does this game leave each team? Both are 2-1, though both face drastically different prospects in their own divisions. The Panthers dropped into a tie for the NFC South lead with the Atlanta Falcons, with the New Orleans Saints just one game behind. The Steelers, meanwhile, share a division with the still-undefeated Bengals and the tough-to-pin-down Ravens and Browns. Next week, both teams remain in the other's division. The Steelers get a virtual guaranteed W with a game against Tampa Bay, while Carolina and Baltimore will take one another's measure. The Panthers aren't this bad, but the Steelers might just be this good. Carolina should stay in the mix for a playoff spot in the NFC, but Pittsburgh's performance is going to make the rest of the league pay attention. ____ Jay Busbee is a writer for Yahoo Sports.

Vikings QB Cassel breaks foot, Bridgewater in (The Associated Press)
The veteran quarterback fractured several bones in his left foot during a scramble in the second quarter of a 20-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Coach Mike Zimmer said X-rays revealed the broken bones. It is not clear how long Cassel will be out, but the injury leaves Bridgewater as Minnesota's quarterback for the foreseeable future. Bridgewater entered the game on Minnesota's third possession, leading a 10-play, 51-yard drive for a field goal.
