U.S. officials are vowing to unleash a massive amount of federal aid in response to Hurricane Ian as the death toll rises amid recovery efforts. The monster storm killed at least 68 people, including 61 in Florida. Hundreds of thousands of people and businesses remain without power. Officials warn that flooding could still worsen in parts of Florida because the rain that fell has nowhere to go. The weakened storm is still bringing havoc as it drifts north. The remnants are forming a nor’easter dumping rain on Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Rainfall on the already inundated Chesapeake Bay could lead to significant tidal flooding.

Matt Ryan fumbled twice in the Colts' 24-17 loss to rival Tennessee, giving the 15-year veteran nine fumbles in four games. That puts him on pace for 38 fumbles this season, which would easily surpass the NFL record of 23 set by Kerry Collins in 2001 and matched by Daunte Culpepper in 2002. The 37-year-old Ryan also threw his fifth interception and was sacked three times. He’s as upset as anyone in the Colts locker room with the plight of 1-2-1 Indianapolis. With 13 games left, Ryan is three short of matching his worst season fumble total. He’s lost three of those fumbles, two shy of his career worst.

Bieber allowed two runs in five innings in his final start of the regular season. Josh Naylor played first base and batted cleanup, one spot ahead of his brother Bo, who was the designated hitter.
