    As week three ended, five teams remain undefeated. The New England Patriots were suppose to struggle because Tom Brady was suspended for the first four weeks. The Denver Bronocos had to find a replacement for Peyton Manning. Teddy Bridgewater injured his knee and dampered Super Bowl hopes, in Minnesota. The Baltimore Ravens were playing second fiddle to the Cincinatti Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers in a tough AFC North. Enter Doug Pederson and rookie Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles were hoping to establish a foundation for the future. Every team believes they can win every game, but these five teams were not suppose to get off to these fast starts. The season is long, but the 1972 Miami Dolphins can not pop the Champagne yet because the NFL still boosts five teams that mathematically have a chance to be the second team to go undefeated. Reality is that none of these teams will run the table, and a bump in the road will happen. However, are all five of these teams legitimte playoff teams? Evan and

    The Green Bay Packers jumped out to a 31-3 lead behind Aaron Rodgers four first half touchdown passes. The Detroit Lions did not waive the white flag, and fought to the end falling one touchdown short, in the 34-27 defeat. Everything seemed to go right for the Packers in the first half, but they could only muster one field goal in the second half.  Eddie Lacy continued to run hard, and Mike McCarthy called his number 17 times. He finished with 103 yards and added one of his pounding 25 yard runs. The Lions moved the ball at will, and converted 57% on third down. The Packers run defense will hold on to their number ranking as they held the Lions to 50 yards on 22 attempts. The pass defense will tumble down the rankings as they allowed Matt Stafford to complete 28 of 41 passes for 385 yards. The Packers defense was without Clay Matthews, Morgan Burnett, and Sam Shields.  Does this game prove that the Packers offense is back on track?

    The Green Bay Packers had a mediocre offensive output against a good Vikings defense. Now they face a Detroit Lions team that has given up 110 yards rushing and 296 yards passing per game. Along with giving up massive yards, they have also allowed 25.5 points in the first two games. On paper, this is a game that Aaron Rodgers and company should be drooling about. However, there has been no signs of a high powered offense, in the first two weeks.  The Packers defense has allowed a stingy 39 yards rushing per game, to rank first in the league. They have allowed 277 yards passing. This Lions offense does not have Calvin Johnson, but have been moving the ball up and down the field, averaging over 400 yards in the first two games. In the NFC North, you can throw the records and stats out, these games are going to be won in the trenches. The team that is "tougher" will be victorious. What do you think are the keys to the game?

    Teams can not win or lose the Super Bowl, in week one. Even a win in week one does not mean your season will be a success. The world of the NFL is one week at a time, and there are 16 teams with a winning record, and 16 teams with a losing record. You are only as good as the last game you played, so after week one there were some suprises, and some disappointments. Tonight we give you the best performances of week one, and some of the not so great efforts. There are about 20 games remaining in the MLB season, and the National League has three teams battling for the two wild-card positions. The American League has a handful of teams battling for the wild-card. As baseball gets overshadowed until the playoffs, there are some teams making a legitimate push towards the World Series. Has your opinion changed in the last week with the Yankess lingering two games back, and the Mets climbing into the second wild card, a 1/2 game ahead of the Cardinals.

    The Green Bay Packers had to sweat out a 27-23 victory, over the Jacksonville Jaguars, mentally and physically. The temperature on the field reached 113 degrees, and the Jaguars applied pressure on the Packers defense all day. Blake Bortles drove the Jaguars to the Green Bay 14 with :23 seconds remaining. On a fourth and one, the Packers defense held by tackling Allen Hurns short of the first down marker.  Aaron Rodgers had two touchdown passes and ran for another, on the opening drive. Statistically, Rodgers had an average day completing 20 of 34 passes for 199 yards. The Packers offense did not turn the ball over and converted 50% on third downs. The one mishap was in the red zone. On a third and two from the Jaguars two yard line, Rodgers barked out the signals. The offensive line went into pass protection but Rodgers handed the ball to James Starks who was smothered for no gain. A touchdown there could have given the Packers more breathing room. The Jaguars kept this game close by converting three of fo

    With a whole off-season to think about the heartbreaking loss in the desert, the Green Bay Packers have to put those memories in a lock box and move forward. They will move forward, on Sunday, as they open their 2016 season at Jacksonville. The Jaguars are a young up and coming team that are drafting and developing. The Packers are a playoff team with Super Bowl aspirations.  You can compare stats from last year, but these teams are a year older and changes have been made to the rosters. Jordy Nelson missed the 2015 season with an ACL tear and returns, but the defense lost an big anchor in B.J. Raji who decided to retire. Green Bay addressed a need at middle linebacker with Blake Martinez, but he has never played a snap in the NFL. The Jaguars number one pick Dante Fowler, who also missed last season with an ACL tear returns. Blake Bortles leads an offense that added Chris Ivory to the backfield, and boosts a good young wide receiving unit with Allen Hurns, Allen Robinson, and Marquis Lee.  The Packers have

Kelvin Benjamin, who tore his ACL before the season started, returns to lead the Carolina Panthers receiving group. Peyton Manning retired and the Broncos will hand the reigns over Trevor Siemian. The Broncos also cut their leading rusher from a year ago, Ronnie Hillman. The teams are the same, but the winner of this game is only 1-0, and has 15 more games to endure before the NFL playoffs.

    The Green Bay Packers made some interesting moves on cut down day. Former pro bowl guard Josh Sitton was among the final cuts, on Saturday. Sitton played eight seasons in Green Bay and started 112 games. The Chicago Bears wasted no time snatching up Sitton, inking him to a three year deal. Inside linebacker has been a topic of discussion for the past few seasons. Sam Barrington was released which means the Packers will most likely start rookie Blake Martinez alongside Jake Ryan. In another suprising move, the Packers opted to keep three quarterbacks on the roster. Joe Callahan played his way to a roster spot with extended time, in the pre-season. Finally, it doesn't seem like much, but the Packers do not have a long snapping specialist. Rick Lovato was released meaning that Mason Crosby now has to put his faith in two new faces to execute the kicking game. There were some other big names on the market across the NFL. Mark Sanchez was suppose to be the stop gap after Peyton Manning retired. However, the Denve

    Vikings season torn apart with Bridgewater injury

    31/08/2016 Duration: 33min

    The goal of the NFL preseason is to shape a 53- man roster and hope that no starters go down with significant injury. Last year, the Green Bay Packers lost Jordy Nelson for the season. The Jacksonville Jaguars lost Dante Fowler, their number one pick. In the preseason, it is not if an injury will occur, but when and who this injury will happen to. This year, the "wow" injury started with Tony Romo, and today Teddy Bridgewater tore his ACL and dislocated his left knee. The Vikings had been taking steps forward under Don Zimmer and won the NFC North, in 2015. Bridgewater had positioned himself as the franchise quarterback, and had a chance to beat Seattle in the playoffs, but Blair Walsh missed a 27-yard field goal. Expectations were high in Minnesota, and now their fate lies in the arm of aging veteran Shaun Hill and former Wisconsin Badger Joel Stave.  Listen in and call the show with your thoughts on the injury bug that has struck the NFL.

    Chip Kelly has taken over as the main man in San Francisco. The Colin Kaepernick of old may have been a perfect fit for the up-tempo offense that Kelly runs. However, after losing his starting job last season and enduring surgery, in the off-season, Kaepernick may be lucky to have spot on the bench. In a non-football related issue, Kaepernick decided to sit during the National Anthem. He was quoted as saying to NFL Media, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color." This silent statement has cause national controversy. Ian Rapoport obtained a statement from the NFL, "Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the national anthem."

    The big news in the world of sports is that Ryan Lochte has been formally charged in Brazil for reporting a false robbery. He could face jail time if convicted. It is not like Brazil is making up something because of Lochte's name. Should you falsify a police report in the United States you could also be subject to fines and imprisonment. Given the details that we know, should Lochte serve jail time? Long time Los Angeles catcher A.J. Ellis was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for Carlos Ruiz. The move doesn't seem to make much sense, because this was not a major upgrade. The Dodgers may have only been thinking offense, but how will this affect Clayton Kershaw? Some pitchers have preferred catchers and that is what Ellis was for Kershaw. When you build that rapport, a pitcher has complete trust in the way a catcher is calling the game. Will Ruiz and Kershaw mesh? Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
