GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Josh McCown won the battle of the backups after Aaron Rodgers hurt his non-throwing shoulder in the Chicago Bears' 27-20 upset of the Green Bay Packers. The victory ended the Bears six-game losing streak to Green Bay and created a three-day tie atop the NFC North with Chicago, Green Bay and Detroit all 5-4.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Two people familiar with the situation say suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito sent text messages to teammate Jonathan Martin that were racist and threatening. Martin remained absent from practice Monday one week after the tackle suddenly left the team.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway says coach John Fox underwent heart surgery yesterday in North Carolina. The 58-year-old Fox underwent aortic valve replacement surgery while defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was running practice after being named interim head coach.

HOUSTON (AP) __ Some Houston Texans players are wondering whether their poor play and current six-game losing streak had something to do with coach Gary Kubiak (KOO'-bee-ak) collapsing on the sideline at halftime of Sunday's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis. The Texans have not released what's wrong with the 52-year-old Kubiak, saying only that he experienced "dizziness and a light-headed feeling" during the game and had undergone tests with his family at his side.

PHILADELPHIA (AP)— Andre Iguodala (ihg-woh-DAH'-lah) made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 32 points, Stephen (STEH'-fihn) Curry had 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors handed the Philadelphia 76ers their first loss of the season, 110-90. The overachieving 76ers fell to 3-1 after being one of the early surprises of the NBA season.
