UNDATED (AP) — The Las Vegas Raiders will have a new coach for Sunday’s game at Denver.
Jon Gruden has stepped down following emails containing racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments.
Emails acquired by The New York Times show that Gruden frequently used misogynistic and homophobic language directed at Commissioner Roger Goodell and others in the league. The Wall Street Journal said Friday that Gruden used a racist comment to describe NFL Players Association leader DeMaurice Smith in 2011. The Times acquired emails sent from between 2011-18 when Gruden was an analyst for ESPN. They show his use of derogatory language went well beyond that.
Gruden was in his second stint as the Raiders’ head coach.
Ravens rally past Colts
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens put together a fourth-quarter comeback before Lamar Jackson completed one of the finest performances of his NFL career.

Brown and Mark Andrews each caught two scoring passes as the AFC North leaders improved to 4-1.
Baltimore trailed 25-9 in the fourth quarter before scoring two touchdowns, blocking a field goal and watching Rodrigo Blankenship miss a 41-yard kick in the final minute of regulation.
Carson Wentz completed 25 of his 35 passes for 402 yards and two scores for the 1-4 Colts.

— The NFL has selected the cities Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich to enter a final bidding stage to host a regular-season game in Germany.
