Two Aarons lead Packers...Browns' Landry out with MCL injury

September 21, 2021

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Jones and Aaron Rodgers had big games as the Green Bay Packers beat the Detroit Lions, 35-17 last night. Jones scored four touchdowns and became the first Packers running back since 1942 to haul in three scoring passes in a game. Rodgers threw for four TDs after being kept out of the end zone for the Packers’ 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the season opener.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry could miss multiple games after spraining his knee in Sunday’s win over Houston. Landry hurt his MCL while being tackled at the end of a 9-yard completion on Cleveland’s second offensive play. Coach Kevin Stefanski said Landry will be “week to week” but provided no other specifics on a timeline for his return.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts won’t know until later this week whether quarterback Carson Went will play at Tennessee after spraining both ankles in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Colts coach Frank Reich says he does not yet have a timeline for a return. Wentz hurt his left ankle early in the game and injured his right ankle midway through the fourth quarter, causing him to miss the rest of the game. Jacob Eason is expected to make his first NFL start if Wentz can’t go against the Titans.

UNDATED (AP) — The College Football Playoff management committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday to discuss the feedback members have received from campuses since a 12-team expansion plan was unveiled in June. The 10 major college football conference commissioners and Notre Dame’s athletic director get together this week and plan to reconvene early next week in Chicago. A four-person subcommittee has come up with a 12-team format that would include six conference champions and six at-large teams.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Dan Mullen says quarterback Anthony Richardson will “probably do a little bit more at practice” this week before the 11th-ranked Gators host Tennessee. Richardson was held out of Saturday’s 31-29 loss to Alabama as a precaution after the redshirt freshman strained his right hamstring near the end of an 80-yard run the previous week. He had a 73-yard touchdown run in the opener against Florida Atlantic and was even better the following week at South Florida, connecting on TD passes of 75 and 40 yards to Jacob Copeland.

Jackson leads Ravens...Bucs extend win streak

September 20, 2021

BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson had been 0-3 versus Patrick Mahomes before the Baltimore Ravens quarterback ran for 107 yards and two TDs in a 36-35 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Jackson also threw for 239 yards and a score for Baltimore, which didn’t secure the win until Clyde Edwards-Helaire on a potential game-winning drive. Mahomes completed 24 of his 31 passes for 343 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ franchise-record winning streak has reached 10 games after Tom Brady threw for 276 yards and five touchdowns in a 48-25 romp over the Atlanta Falcons. Rob Gronkowski caught a pair of TD passes for the third straight game, including the Super Bowl. Mike Evans also scored on receptions of 3 and 1 yards, the latter set up by Shaquil Barrett’s third-quarter interception of Matt Ryan.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers are 2-0 following a 26-7 win over the New Orleans Saints. Darnold was 26 of 38 for 305 yards, two TDs and one interception as he continues to flourish since leaving the New York Jets. Christian McCaffrey added 137 yards from scrimmage and scored his first touchdown of the season.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo  threw one touchdown pass and ran in for a score, leading the San Francisco 49ers to a 17-11 victory at Philadelphia. Nick Bosa (BOH’-sah) had two sacks and San Francisco’s stingy defense shut down Jalen Hurts. The Eagles’ quarterback ran for 82 yards but completed just 12 of 23 passes for 190 yards.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield threw for a touchdown, ran for a score and was 18 of 21 for 213 yards in the Cleveland Browns’ 31-21 decision over Houston. Mayfield completed all 10 of his passes after suffering a left shoulder injury while tossing an interception. Nick Chubb ran for 95 yards on 11 carries, including a 26-yard TD.

Regional MLB Recaps from Sunday

September 20, 2021

Cubs-Brewers

— Patrick Wisdom set a Cubs rookie record with his 27th homer, hitting a three-run drive that capped a five-run comeback in the eighth inning and sent Chicago over the Milwaukee Brewers 6-4. The Brewers’ ninth-inning rally fell short and the magic number for wrapping up their first NL Central title since 2018 remained at three.

White Sox-Rangers

— José Abreu matched the major league RBI lead and the White Sox moved closer to the AL Central title with a 7-2 win over the Rangers. Yasmani Grandal  homered for the second game in a row, igniting a five-run outburst that Abreu capped with a two-run single to give him 113 RBIs. The magic number is four for Chicago to win the division title over second-place Cleveland.

Cardinals-Padres

— San Diego center fielder Fernando Tatis Jr. dropped Nolan Arenado’s bases-loaded popup and heaved the ball home, leading to a five-run first that carried the Cardinals past the Padres, 8-7. Harrison Bader greeted reliever Craig Stammen with a two-run double for a 5-0 lead in the first. The outcome currently leaves the Cardinals three games ahead of the Reds for the second NL wild card.

Twins-Blue Jays

— Bo Bichette homered in a five-run first that put the Blue Jays on their way to a 5-3 win over the Twins. José Berríos pitched into the seventh inning to beat his former team. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had three hits and an RBI as the Blue Jays improved to 15-3 this month.

Regional NFL Recaps

September 20, 2021

Bears-Bengals

— The Bears completed a 20-17 win over the Bengals as Justin Fields played the second half after Andy Dalton exited with a knee injury against his former team. Fields completed just 6 of 13 passes for 60 yards and also ran for 31 yards. Roquan Smith returned an interception 53 yards for his first career touchdown, one of three straight picks thrown by Joe Burrow during a decisive stretch in Chicago’s first win of the season.

Vikings-Cardinals

— Kyler Murray threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns to help the Cardinals eke out a 34-33 win over the Vikings. Murray also ran for a touchdown and threw two costly interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown. The outcome was in doubt until Greg Joseph missed a 37-yard field goal wide right in the final seconds.

__Tonight the Green Bay Packers have their home schedule opener against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.
