GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Neil Rackers gained a measure of redemption and sent the Atlanta Falcons to another loss in their demoralizing season. Rackers kicked a 29-yard field goal as the fourth quarter ended, then made one from 31 yards on the first possession of overtime to give the Arizona Cardinals a 30-27 victory. Rackers celebrated by sliding on his knees across the grass. He missed what would have been a game-winning 32-yarder in a loss to San Francisco a month ago.

Holy Candy, the horse part-owned by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, was scratched Saturday morning from the Santa Anita Derby, a few hours before the 75th running of the $750,000 race that serves as a major prep for the Kentucky Derby. Holy Candy will instead run in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 14. Brees is one of 12 members of Donkey Island Racing, which owns Holy Candy along with breeder Craig Stables, headed by Jenny Craig. Alex Solis Jr., who manages Donkey Island Racing, said trainer John Sadler wanted to give Holy Candy an extra week off, plus he likes the horse's chances at Keeneland better.
