safety and we'd hate to see somebody get hurt. >> reporter: right now federal regulations force engineers to sound the horn as it approaches every intersection. the federal railroad administration can establish a quiet zone where trains don't have to honk if it's safe enough. but that hasn't happened yet. >> this year hasn't shaped up exactly like we expected. but we're rolling with it. >> reporter: right now workers are stationed at every train crossing because gates still don't work properly. zone established, the horns will continue to blare. >> if i was waking up at every night at 2:00 in the morning because of a train, i'd be frustrated too. be patient with us. we know it's not ideal. >> reporter: in denver, brian maass, cbs4 news. >> rtd says reverting to buses at night would be a logistical nightmare. the agency is asking for patience until a quiet zone

wrapped after practice today. still no rush to name a starter. gary kubiak certainly liking what he saw. >> trevor threw the ball fine today. you can tell the rotation, stuff you've got to get used to. kind of like working through a hit corner, the way it's described to me. and if you guys know what that feels like, doesn't feel very good. something you've got to work through the soreness and get it going again. i think he took a good step there. centurylink poll question. who do you want to see start sunday? 62% of you saying you want to see trevor siemian in favor of the rookie paxton lynch. defensive guys don't put up the big numbers that offensive guys do. but that doesn't mean they don't care about their stats. in the locker room you can often hear the defensive guys arguing over who should get credit for the sacks. derek wolfe had a career day in tampa. according to von miller, if it weren't for von, you'd see more numbers from derek more often.
for two or three years now. it's great to see him get a lot of sacks. he's right there on top of me. so about 10 of my sacks that i got throughout my career, i've stolen from derek. so it's been a great partnership especially for me. >> he does the work. i get the credit. sounds great. thursday night football. cardinals visiting the 49ers. 3rd quarter, drew stanton filling in for carson palmer. he's going deep to larry fitzgerald. second touchdown in the game. cardinals up yards. that's the most this season in the nfl. and oh, by the way, arizona defense was pretty good too. calais campbell had a big night. interception, sack, and a safety. cardinals win it 33-21. if the cubs are ever going to win the world series, it's going to be this year. at least that's what vegas thinks. the divisional series beginning tonight. vegas has the cubs at 9:5 odds to win the whole things.
odds at 9:2. indians went off in the 3rd inning. perez with a homer. 377 feet. two batters later, another home run for cleveland. that would give the tribe a 3-2 lead. and they weren't done yet. very next batter, yeah, you guessed it. cleveland goes on to get a 5-4 win in game 1. toronto hosting texas. blue jays were red hot from the get-go. somebody forgot to tell texas this was the playoffs. adrian beltre trying to figure out how he missed bases loaded for tulo and he would deliver. a bases clearing triple. blue jays scored five runs in the 3rd. they led 10-0 at one point. they end up winning 10-1. tulo, 3-5 on the day. >> cole is obviously a great pitcher. i think he made a mistake there. put a big swing on it. obviously it was a big hit for us. series isn't over. it's only one game. when we come back, no
