INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Cody Parkey hit a 36-yard field goal as time expired to complete Philadelphia's comeback in a 30-27 win over the Colts. Nick Foles hit Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard TD with 3:25 left and drove the 2-0 Eagles down field for the winning kick after the Colts went three-and-out. Andrew Luck put the Colts ahead in the fourth quarter with his third touchdown pass of the game, but his lone interception set up the Eagles' tying TD.
NEW YORK (AP) The NFL Players Association will appeal the indefinite suspension the league handed to Ray Rice last week. Union spokesman George Atallah told The Associated Press the appeal is expected to be requested before tomorrow night's deadline. Rice originally was suspended two games under the NFL's personal conduct policy for striking his then-fiancee in a hotel elevator, but the ban was increased when videotape of that incident was made public.
