OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders were winners in what may have been their final game in Oakland, beating the San Diego Chargers 23-20 in overtime. Sebastian Janikowski hit a 31-yard field goal with 8:05 left in OT before the Raiders stopped the Chargers on downs. Latavius Murray rushed for 79 yards and a TD for the 7-8 Raiders, while Derek Carr completed 24 of his 39 passes for 209 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Second baseman Daniel Murphy is switching teams within the National League East after helping the New York Mets win the National League pennant. A personal familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that Murphy and the Nationals have agreed to a three-year, $37.5 million contract, pending a physical. Murphy hit .281 with a career-high 14 homers during the regular season and hit home runs in six straight games during the NL playoffs before his bat and glove got cold in the World Series against Kansas City.

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Western Michigan earned its first bowl victory in seven tries by outscoring Middle Tennessee 45-31 in the Bahamas Bowl.

HONOLULU (AP) — The San Diego State Aztecs have capped their football season with their 10th straight win, a 42-7 pounding of Cincinnati in the Hawaii Bowl. Rashaad Penny returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to begin San Diego State's string of 42 straight points. Donnell Pumphrey threw for a touchdown, ran for another and had 99 yards on 25 carries to help the Aztecs finish 11-3.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns have suspended forward Markieff Morris two games for what was termed "conduct detrimental to the team," one after he threw a towel at coach Jeff Hornacek in a home loss to Denver. Hornacek said after the game that Morris was upset about being taken out of the game. Morris has played poorly most of the season and lost his starting job several weeks ago.
