Toddler dies after fall at Lakers game

UPDATE, 1:25 p.m.: According to a blog post on The Los Angeles Times' website, the 2-year-old who fell to his death after the Lakers' game at Staples Center on Sunday night had crawled out of his parents' sight, and they were looking for him when they discovered he had fallen 50 feet to the concrete below. Witnesses said the boy was moving his arms legs and head before paramedics took him out on a stretcher and to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

 

The boy was identified as Lucas Anthony Tang, and he had been crawling around the third-level, top-tier suite during the game, a source told the Times. 

 

The death was being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department's abused-child unit, a standard practice in situations such as this.

Esiason on D&C: Manning 'a little greedy'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning and talked about the Patriots' dramatic victory over the Colts. The game was secured when James Sanders picked off a Peyton Manning pass in the final minute as the Colts were driving for the potential go-ahead touchdown.

 

Esiason credited the Patriots pass rush with forcing Manning to throw his pass off target. "He got a little greedy is what he did," Esiason said of Manning. "And again, I think he was spooked [by the pass rush]. … If he holds the ball, steps up, maybe another step, hits the shallow cross underneath, we might be talking about an overtime victory one way or the other."

 

Esiason said he doesn't believe that the Colts will go far in the postseason. "I can see them winning their division, simply because their division is pretty average right now," he...

Mashup: Doubting Jets fans miss comeback

Last week, Jets coach Rex Ryan challenged fans to get to their seats by kickoff and help his team get off to a fast start. Apparently, the fans didn't realize Ryan also would like them to stay until the finish. Thousands of fans headed for the exits after the Jets squandered a fourth-quarter lead Sunday vs. the Texans, and they missed the Jets' game-winning touchdown drive engineered by Mark Sanchez. Meanwhile, the news got worse for five Jets fans who were sent to the hospital after an escalator accident at the Secaucus train station. Read more about that story and others, and check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Sanders: 'I was thinking deja vu'

FOXBORO -- Moments before his game-clinching interception, James Sanders had a very bad flashback to last season. But he avoided reliving the nightmare of his team's collapse in Indianapolis, as Sanders intercepted Peyton Manning at the Patriots' 6-yard line with 31 seconds remaining to clinch the 31-28 win over the Colts on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. 

 

As was the case 12 months earlier when they lost 35-34, the Patriots had a 31-14 lead over the Colts in the fourth quarter, following a 25-yard Shayne Graham field goal with 10:23 left. But Manning threw a pair of touchdown passes over the middle to Blair White to draw the Colts within 31-28. And when the Patriots couldn't convert a first down, Manning got the ball back with 2:25 remaining. He drove the Colts to the Patriots' 24, before Sanders made a leaping interception of Manning's throw intended for Pierre Garcon. 

 

"For a minute, I was thinking deja vu...

Manning: Three INTs 'just inexcusable'

FOXBORO - Colts quarterback Peyton Manning met with the media following his team's 31-28 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. Manning threw for 396 yards and four touchdowns in the game but also tossed three interceptions, including a pick to James Sanders on the final drive of the game.

 

"I certainly didn't get everything into the throw that I wanted," said Manning of the Sanders INT. "Had a matchup we wanted, we were going to take a shot, don't have a reason why I couldn't get everything into the throw that I wanted."

 

Manning took all the blame for the loss, which leaves the Colts at 6-4 and tied for first place in the AFC South with the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

 

 

"To throw three interceptions against a good offense like that is just inexcusable," said Manning. "Anytime you play against Tom [Brady] and that offense you feel like you have to score points....
