The first regular-season NFL game outside North America was no offensive
showcase, as Dolphins quarterback Cleo Lemon (far left) proved in losing this
fumble to Giants defensive end Michael Strahan (92). The turnover came during
the second quarter of New York's 13--10 win on the slippery, rain-soaked turf
of London's Wembley Stadium (page 67), where Miami's mascot (inset) joined a
sellout crowd of 81,176.
Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell scored on a no-look slide in the fifth inning
on Sunday in Denver, helping Boston to a 4--3 victory and a World Series sweep
of the Rockies (page 28). Lowell, who also homered in Game 4, batted .400
overall and was named Series MVP (inset).
Ginger Punch (4) outlasted Hystericalady (12) in the deep slop along the rail
in the Breeders' Cup Distaff last Saturday at Monmouth Park. The main event,
the $5 million Classic, was won by Curlin (inset), who got a much-needed bath
at the conclusion of the rain-plagued two days of racing (page 17).
