Some of the stories The Associated Press is covering Sunday. A full Sports Digest will be sent about 3 p.m. All times EDT.

MEDINAH, Ill. - The Americans took a 10-6 lead into the final day at the Ryder Cup. Europe stacked all its top players at the front of the lineup, hopeful of repeating the American comeback at Brookline from 1999.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers have one thing in common going into their game: Both teams feel they've been wronged by the NFL, and they haven't been shy about speaking out. But each has problems that go beyond that.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Tommy Milone tries for his 14th victory when Oakland wraps up its weekend series with the Seattle Mariners, and the Athletics could clinch their first playoff spot since 2006 with a win and if the Angels lose twice at Texas and the Rays lose, too.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - After a week staying in eastern Ohio rather than returning to San Francisco, the 49ers (2-1) are looking to rebound from a disappointing loss to Minnesota by taking on the New York Jets (2-1) - who are hoping to overcome the loss of star cornerback Darrelle Revis.

ST. LOUIS - The Washington Nationals' magic number is 1 for clinching the NL East heading into the finale of a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals, who are closing in on the second NL wild card with a magic number of 3.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Steve Spurrier vs. Mark Richt. Marcus Lattimore vs. Todd Gurley. Jadeveon Clowney vs. Jarvis Jones. Get ready for No. 5 Georgia (5-0, 3-0 SEC) at No. 6 South Carolina (5-0, 3-0), a game expected to go a long way to settling the league's Eastern Division.

ARLINGTON, Texas - All those 30-something defenders for the Chicago Bears can still play. They get to quarterbacks and make plenty of tackles. The Bears lead the NFL with 14 sacks. On Monday night, they get to chase after Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

NEW YORK - The NHL and the Players' Association are meeting for the third straight day to try to resolve the lockout. The agenda likely will include discussions on health and safety issues.

KEARNS, Utah - Katherine Reutter is finally healing after two hip operations earlier this year and a bulging disk in August, yet the two-time Olympic medalist remains torn over a coaching scandal that has rocked U.S. Speedskating.
