Brandon Kintzler, who saved 29 games for the Twins this year before going to Washington at the trade deadline and pitching in a setup role, is attracting a crowd on the free agent market. The Cubs, Twins, Diamondbacks, Nationals and Rangers are among the teams with interest. If the Cubs sign Kintzler on top of the Brandon Morrow deal, it will mean they've officially moved on from Wade Davis.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones on the team's chances at 7-6 following Sunday's win against the Giants. “We just got to win ‘em,” Jones said. “We just have to. We just got to win those three. We didn't get much help today, but it's certainly not over at all. But the main thing is they remember what you did in December in pro football and so we want to play very impressively and I thought our win today was impressive. They didn't give it to us. They played us pretty sound. We had to earn it.”
