Ravens GM Newsome stays in Chicago
The Baltimore Ravens say general manager Ozzie Newsome remained in Chicago following Sunday’s game against the Bears because he was not feeling well.
In a statement, the organization says the team doctor “recommended that Ozzie not fly tonight.” The extent of his illness was not clear. A Hall of Fame tight end, the 57-year-old Newsome has been the Ravens’ general manager since 2002.
The Ravens lost 23-20 in overtime to the Bears in a game that was delayed about two hours by rain in the first quarter.
The 1992 Austintown Fitch High football team advanced to Week 13. A story in Sunday’s edition incorrectly said the last Fitch team to play so late in the season was the 1986 team.

The only other player to score more than 109 in an NCAA game was Rio Grande’s Clarence “Bevo” Francis, who had 113 against Hillsdale in 1954.

Sebastian Vettel takes US Grand Prix race
Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel set a Formula One single-season record with his eighth consecutive victory, winning the U.S. Grand Prix with yet another dominating drive.
Starting from the pole position, Vettel got through the critical first turn with his trademark quick start and gave the field no chance to catch his Red Bull car.
Vettel charges into next weekend’s season finale in Brazil with a chance to tie Michael Schumacher’s Formula One record of 13 victories in a single season.
