— Ailing Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who sat out Sunday’s 17-15 victory over the Bears, reportedly plans to return next season, even if it means finding a new home.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio said on NBC’s Sunday night’s NFL coverage that the 39-year-old “currently intends to play next year, even if it’s not for the Broncos.” However, co-host Tony Dungy, who knows Manning well as his former coach with the Colts, said he had not heard the same information.

Manning restructured his contract this past offseason, leaving him with a base salary of $19 million for next year. He reportedly has a torn plantar fascia in his foot.

Manning is coming off a disastrous outing in last Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs, as he completed five passes while being intercepted four times. Brock Osweiler started in Manning’s place Sunday and threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. Early reports indicate Denver intends to start Osweiler again next Sunday against the Patriots.

“I don’t know if anybody believed me, but I really was telling the truth — I have not wasted a single day sitting behind Peyton,” Osweiler said after Sunday’s win. “I fully recognize that he might be the greatest quarterback to ever play, if not one of the greatest. I wasn’t going to let one of those days go by where I didn’t learn something. I’ve been very appreciative for my situation.”

— Washington defensive end Jason Hatcher is frustrated with what he believes is biased officiating against his team. After Sunday’s 44-16 loss to the Panthers, he threw out an interesting theory: The referees are punishing the Redskins because of their nickname.

“I’m not saying this out of character to get fined, but it is what it is,” Hatcher said. “I don’t know if it’s about the name or what, but at the same time, we play football, too. We work our butt off, too. Don’t single us out. At the end of the day, it’s the name. Don’t worry about the name — we’re players and we work our butts off, too. I’m just frustrated with it.

“We shouldn’t have to be punished for that. It’s been every game, calls after calls that should’ve been made in our favor, but it goes to them. It’s just not right. We’re in the league, too. We’re [NFL] players. We’ve got a team, too. We go out there, and we sweat and work hard, too. I don’t give a crap about the name. We are players. We’ve got feelings, too, and we want to win, too.”

Hatcher’s teammates weren’t ready to buy into the conspiracy theory, but there was a lot of frustration in the locker room after some key calls went against Washington — including an unnecessary roughness on cornerback Chris Culliver that wiped out a pick-six that would have given Washington a 21-14 lead.

“That turned the whole game around,” Redskins defensive end Chris Baker said. “Things started happening; we started unraveling. … It was frustrating because we’re seeing a recurring act, especially when we lose, which certain calls you just, how can you call that? This is football. That’s a touchdown called back for playing football. This is the new soft NFL.”

Dave Roberts, a legend in Boston for his steal that ignited the comeback against the Yankees in the 2004 American League Championship Series and sparked the Red Sox‘ championship run, reportedly will be the next manager of the Dodgers.

Roberts, 43, had been serving as bench coach of the Padres since 2011. The product of a black father and Japanese mother, he will become the first minority manager in team history.

The Dodgers parted ways with Don Mattingly after the season ended with a third straight NL West title but another postseason disappointment. Mattingly since was named manager of the Marlins.

Roberts beat out another former Red Sox outfielder, Gabe Kapler, who oversees the minor leagues for the Dodgers.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I’ve got news for you, Tyrod Taylor is coming into town and he is the third-rated quarterback in the National Football League that nobody talks about. He’s a young man. We’ve got a few guys that are back healthy right now, so our team is going to give what we have and certainly the disrespect that they showed him and things like that with their questioning and things like that, so we’ll see. We’ll give a good shot and the whole country will get to see this young man play. We know it will be tough against a Bill Belichick defense, but our team is going to show up. Believe me, we will show up.” — Bills coach Rex Ryan, on Monday’s game against the Patriots

STAT OF THE DAY: 15 — Consecutive wins by the Warriors to open the season, tying the NBA record, after Sunday’s 118-105 victory over the Nuggets

‘NET RESULTS (mobile users, check the website to see the videos): Canucks forward Bo Horvat makes a great play to fake out the defense and set up Alexandre Burrows, but Devils goals Corey Schneider makes the save.

Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner takes a great pass from William Karlsson and finishes with the goal against the Sharks.

Clippers center DeAndre Jordan takes advantage of a mismatch on a jump ball to smack a lead pass to Wesley Johnson for a layup (despite Johnson’s blatant travel).

From the MLS playoffs, Dairon Asprilla curves a long blast past the goalie to give the Timbers a 2-0 lead against FC Dallas.

TRIVIA ANSWER: Mike Torrez, formerly of the Yankees
