Patrick Cantlay won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday in a playoff for the first victory in a PGA Tour career mostly derailed by a severe back injury.

The 25-year-old former UCLA star hit from behind a tree and got up-and-down for par from off the back of the 18th green to beat Las Vegas resident Alex Cejka and Whee Kim on the second extra hole.

A.J. McInerney, a former UNLV golfer and 1 October shooting survivor, received a sponsor invitation and finished tied for 10th.

Derek Carr threw for 300 yards and the Oakland Raiders overcame two fluky plays that cost them possession to beat the Miami Dolphins 27-24 on Sunday night.

Ahead of the future Las Vegas Raiders game in Miami Sunday, News 3 sports anchor Amber Dixon sat down with Dolphins great, Paul Warfield.

A member of the undefeated 1972 Dolphins, the first-ballot hall of famer also played wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns.

He has fond memories of the Raiders and their late, great owner, Al Davis.

Amber Dixon spoke with him about that, as well as about current NFL controversies, including players kneeling during the National Anthem and head injuries; their most severe form: chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE.
