  • Bears' Tillman out for season, but not giving up Sep 16, 2014 5:41 AM
    For the second time in 10 months, Bears cornerback Charles Tillman suffered a season-ending torn triceps, which could imperil the career of the 33-year-old two-time Pro Bowl player.

     
  • Plenty of candidates as Big Ten’s best on offense Sep 17, 2014 12:08 AM
    Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, the Big Ten’s top offensive player the past two years, is out for the season after shoulder surgery. Someone is destined to step into that vacancy.

     
  • Vikings reverse decision, bar Peterson from all team activities Sep 17, 2014 9:16 AM
    After a day of public pressure from angry fans and concerned sponsors, the Minnesota Vikings have reversed course and placed star running back Adrian Peterson on the exempt-commissioner's permission list, a move that will require him to stay away from the team while he addresses child abuse charges in Texas.

     
  • Spiller, Watkins spark Bills’ win over Miami Sep 14, 2014 3:45 PM
    C.J. Spiller scored on a 102-yard kickoff return, and rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had a 12-yard touchdown catch in leading the Buffalo Bills to a 29-10 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Dolphins (1-1) also lost a key offseason addition when running back Knowshon Moreno did not return after hurting his left elbow 11 minutes in. Spiller and Watkins both scored in the third quarter, putting Buffalo ahead 23-10. Buffalo is 2-0 start for the first time since 2011, and sixth time since 2000. The Bills rode the momentum of a charged-up crowd in a home opener that celebrated the franchise’s past and future. The Bills paid tribute to late owner Ralph Wilson, who died in March. On Tuesday, Wilson’s estate reached a “definitive agreement” to sell the team to Terry and Kim Pegula for an NFL-record $1.4 billion.

     
  • Washington beats Jacksonville 41-10 Sep 14, 2014 3:54 PM
    After Robert Griffin III was hurt yet again, Kirk Cousins couldn’t miss. The Washington NFL team lost both Griffin and DeSean Jackson in the first quarter Sunday with injuries that by no means appeared minor. While that might have major repercussions for the season, Cousins and his teammates were able to shrug it off against the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars in a 41-10 win. Cousins, looking more comfortable in new coach Jay Gruden’s offense than Griffin ever did, completed his first 12 passes and finished 22 of 33 for 250 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Ryan Kerrigan had four sacks and the defense had 10 — both tying franchise records — and Washington didn’t allow the Jaguars past midfield until the final two minutes of the first half. Washington (1-1) dominated 449-148 in total yards against a Jacksonville team that, combined with the previous week, allowed 55 unanswered points until Chad Henne hit Marcedes Lewis for a 63-yard score with 1:40 to go in the half. The Jaguars are 0-2 for the third consecutive season. Washington ended a nine-game regular-season losing streak — the second-longest in franchise history — and gave Gruden his first win as an NFL head coach, but the future is cloudy because of the health of their two most dynamic playmakers. Griffin hurt his left ankle and was carted off with his leg in a splint, while Jackson injured his left shoulder and was supporting his arm and shoulder gingerly as he walked toward the tunnel. Not surprisingly, the team soon announced that neither would return. Griffin has been trying to learn to be more of a pocket-passer under Gruden, but he was hurt while being his typical RG3 self. He made a leaping, across-the-body throw near the sideline while being pursued by linebacker Paul Posluszny, then landed awkwardly on his ankle as he tumbled out of bounds. The pass was caught by Jackson for an 11-yard gain. After his leg was placed in a splint, Griffin wiped his brow and waved, saluted and gave a thumbs-up signal to the crowd as he was carted along the sideline toward the players’ tunnel. The fans chanted “R-G-3!” It was the latest setback for a promising but injury-marred career. Griffin missed all or part of four games in his record-setting rookie season of 2012 due to various injuries, including a torn right ACL that led to reconstructive knee surgery. He tore the same ACL in college at Baylor. Two plays after Griffin was hurt, Cousins hit fullback Darrel Young for a 20-yard touchdown pass for the game’s first score. On the Redskins’ next series, Jackson landed on his shoulder after getting tangled with safety Josh Evans on an incomplete pass. The three-time Pro Bowl receiver was the Redskins’ prized free agency acquisition this year, signing a three-year, $24 million contract with $16 million guaranteed after getting cut by the Philadelphia Eagles. Nevertheless, Washington soon had a 21-0 lead after a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs by Alfred Morris. Morris finished with 85 yards on 22 carries. Niles Paul, playing for sidelined tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring), had a touchdown catch and set career highs with eight catches for 99 yards. Henne finished 14-for-28 for 193 yards. Lewis, who scored Jacksonville’s only touchdown, injured an ankle on the first play of the third quarter and was carted to the locker room. He did not return.

     
  • Backup QB leads Cardinals over Giants Sep 14, 2014 3:45 PM
    The Arizona Cardinals are getting so good they can win with a backup quarterback who hadn’t played since 2010. Ted Ginn Jr. ran 71 yards on a punt return for a go-ahead fourth-quarter touchdown, and the Cardinals beat the error-prone New York Giants 25-14 Sunday despite playing without injured starting quarterback Carson Palmer. Drew Stanton threw for 167 yards and led the Cardinals (2-0) on three long scoring drives in helping them win for the ninth time in 11 games. Arizona finished 10-6 last season, but missed the playoffs. Jonathan Dwyer scored on a 1-yard run and Chandler Catanzaro kicked four field goals, including one a minute after Ginn’s electrifying return on which the speedster bounced off a tackle and was gone. The Cardinals got the ball back right away after Quintin Demps fumbled the ensuing kickoff return. Eli Manning (26 of 39 for 277 and two interceptions) threw two touchdowns for the Giants (0-2), who turned over the ball four times. Manning’s touchdown passes covered 7 yards to Rueben Randle and 1 yard to Daniel Fells, the last one putting New York ahead 14-10 late in the third quarter. Stanton, who finished 14 of 29 and no interceptions, closed the gap to 14-13 on a 13-play, 74-yard march that Catanzaro capped with a 37-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter. The Giants went three-and-out when Victor Cruz would not catch a third-down sideline pass in front of the Cardinals bench. It proved costly. Steve Weatherford, who tore ligaments in his left ankle in the season opener, got off a low punt. Ginn bounced off an initial tackle by Zack Bowman, circled right and turned upfield. Only Weatherford had a chance to tackle him and it was a mismatch. The Cardinals, who rallied to beat San Diego last Monday night, failed on the 2-point conversion run. But Demps’ fumble and the ensuing 32-yard field goal by Catanzaro pushed the lead to 22-14. New York had a chance to tie, moving into Cardinals territory with less than five minutes to play. Then running back Rashad Jennings lost his footing after catching a swing pass and fumbled at the 15. And the Giants now seem on their way to another horrible start; they opened last season 0-6. Stanton was outstanding. He guided an 11-play, 80-yard touchdown drive on the opening series, and a 10-play, 40-yard field goal drive on the next one. Dwyer capped the first one from less than a yard after video review denied Larry Fitzgerald an 8-yard TD catch. Catanzaro kicked a 49-yard field goal to finish the second drive that featured runs of 15 yards by Andre Ellington and 20 by Dwyer. The Giants’ defense helped the Cardinals on both drives. A roughing-the-passer call on Jameel McClain even though a delay of game was called gave Arizona a first down on the opening drive. A questionable illegal contact call against Prince Amukamara on third down gave Arizona a first down at the Giants 35. Manning got the Giants back in the game with a 13-play, 90-yard touchdown drive that ended with Randle making a one-handed catch of a 7-yard fade pass to the corner of the end zone. Manning hit 6 of 7 passes on the drive, including a 25-yard to Cruz on third-and-11.

     
  • Bengals lose A.J. Green, but beat Falcons Sep 14, 2014 3:45 PM
    Running back Giovani Bernard picked up a Bengals offense missing receiver A.J. Green on Sunday, turning short passes into big plays, and Cincinnati’s defense held down yet another top quarterback for a 24-10 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The Bengals won their home opener and improved to 2-0 for the first time since 2006 despite losing several key players to injury, most notably Green. The Pro Bowl receiver aggravated an injured toe on his right foot, which kept him out of practice last week. He left during the opening series and didn’t catch a pass for the first time in his four-year career. Cincinnati had more than enough left to handle the Falcons (1-1), who gave up nearly 500 yards for the second straight game. Matt Ryan was 24 of 44 for 231 yards with a touchdown, two sacks and three interceptions.

     
  • Browns beat Saints on last-second kick Sep 14, 2014 3:45 PM
    Billy Cundiff kicked a 29-yard field goal with three seconds left, giving the Cleveland Browns a 26-24 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Cundiff’s kick helped the Browns (1-1) snap a nine-game losing streak in home openers and gave rookie coach Mike Pettine his first NFL win. Cleveland had not won at home since 2004. Quarterback Brian Hoyer drove the Browns 85 yards in 14 plays in the final 2:46 to set up Cundiff’s game-winner. Hoyer completed several big passes, none more crucial than his 28-yarder to Andrew Hawkins with 13 seconds to go. The Saints (0-2) rallied from a 13-point deficit to take the lead on Mark Ingram’s 1-yard TD run with 12:12 left. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Jimmy Graham and moved one spot up the NFL’s career passing list.

     
  • Cowboys beat Titans 26-10 Sep 14, 2014 3:45 PM
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Dallas Cowboys avoided an 0-2 start after getting a dominating performance from DeMarco Murray and their beleaguered defense. Murray ran for 167 yards and a touchdown, Dan Bailey kicked four field goals, and the Dallas Cowboys routed the Tennessee Titans 26-10 Sunday. The loss spoiled Tennessee first-year coach Ken Whisenhunt’s home debut. The Cowboys haven’t started 0-2 since 2010 when Wade Phillips was fired midway through the season and Jason Garrett was promoted to head coach. They didn’t come close to staying winless Sunday, jumping ahead 16-0 in the first half. The Dallas defense had two sacks and two interceptions that led to 10 points. Tony Romo easily shook off his three interceptions in the season-opening loss to San Francisco. With Murray running so well, Romo was 19 of 29 for 176 yards and a TD. The Titans (1-1) struggled in all areas after winning their opener at Kansas City and missed on their first 2-0 start since 2008. Dez Bryant had a 3-yard TD catch in a game where he went to the locker room after the opening drive to get his shoulder checked out. Murray lost a fumble for a second straight game. Not that it slowed down the Cowboys. They held the ball for 41 minutes, 11 seconds and finished with a 368-314 edge in total offense, delighting their many fans who at one point chanted “Let’s Go Cowboys” as Dallas ran out the clock. Even with linebacker Justin Durant out with an injured groin and cornerback Orlando Scandrick suspended, the Cowboys got some big stops in the second half. Rolando McClain, who starred in college at Alabama, ended one Tennessee drive slipping his hand just underneath a Locker pass for an interception early in the fourth. The Cowboys also forced the Titans to turn it over on downs after facing first-and-goal at the Dallas 6 with 6:22 left. Whisenhunt is the Titans’ third head coach since their last playoff berth in 2008, and hope was high for a team coming off a big win at Kansas City. It didn’t last long as the Titans could not have looked much worse for the first 30 minutes. The only highlights were Jurrell Casey coming up with two of three sacks. Jake Locker, who had a 111.4 passer rating in the opener, struggled missing receivers both too short and too high. He had only 26 yards with a passer rating of 7.6 at halftime. After Barry Church intercepted a Locker pass, Murray ran four times and ran 40 yards and capped the drive by shoving the ball over the goal line on a 3-yard TD run for a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter. Bailey added field goals of 48, 44 and 51 for a 16-0 halftime lead. Tennessee finally got going scoring 10 points in the third quarter, including a 61-yard TD pass from Locker to Delanie Walker. The tight end bounced off Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne and outran defenders to the end zone for a 61-yard TD with 7:45 left. Locker finished 18 of 34 for 234 yards.

     
  • Broncos fend off Chiefs with goal-line stand Sep 14, 2014 7:15 PM
    Terrance Knighton batted away Alex Smith’s fourth-and-goal pass to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left, preserving the Denver Broncos’ 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Broncos (2-0) thought they had sealed the win twice earlier on the drive. Aqib Talib’s pick-6 was negated by Quanterus Smith’s hold. Then, Nate Irving’s fumble recovery following DeMarcus Ware’s sack and strip was ruled an incomplete pass after a replay. The Chiefs (0-2) converted 11 of 16 third-down opportunities overall. They just couldn’t capitalize in the biggest moments as the Broncos defense mustered two goal-line stands for the second straight week. Peyton Manning was 21 of 26 for 242 yards and three TDs.

     
  • Four FGs lift Rams over Bucs Sep 14, 2014 7:16 PM
    Greg Zuerlein’s fourth field goal of the day, a 38-yarder with 38 seconds remaining, gave third-string quarterback Austin Davis and the St. Louis Rams a 19-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Davis completed 22 of 29 passes for 235 yards with no interceptions in his first NFL start. Zac Stacy had a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and Zuerlein also delivered field goals of 36, 35 and 46 yards to help the Rams (1-1) rebound from a lopsided opening loss to Minnesota. Bobby Rainey rushed 144 yards and quarterback Josh McCown had two short TD runs for the Bucs (0-2). Tampa moved into St. Louis territory in the closing second. The game ended when rookie Mike Evans was slow getting up after a 29-yard reception to the St. Louis 32.

     
  • Gates’ 3 TD catches carry Bolts over Seahawks Sep 14, 2014 6:24 PM
    Antonio Gates had three touchdown catches and the San Diego Chargers controlled the tempo to keep Seattle’s offense off the field and upset the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks 30-21 Sunday. Gates’ 21-yard catch late in the third quarter was epic, as the star tight end split two defenders and extended for Philip Rivers’ pass, reaching out with his left hand to gather it in. Flat on his back, he held up the ball to show the ref he’d made the catch that gave San Diego a 27-14. Rivers was 28 of 37 for 284 yards. San Diego (1-1) had blown an 11-point, fourth-quarter lead and lost its opener Monday night at Arizona. Seattle (1-1) had nine days to prepare after a 20-point opening victory against Green Bay.

     
  • Texans beat Raiders 30-14 Sep 14, 2014 6:45 PM
    OAKLAND, Calif. — J.J. Watt caught a 1-yard touchdown pass, Arian Foster ran for 138 yards and a score and the Houston Texans won their second straight game to open the season, beating the Oakland Raiders 30-14 Sunday. Instead of controlling the game from his usual defensive end position, Watt made his biggest impact on the opening drive when he lined up as a tight end and caught a pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to get Houston (2-0) started. After losing their final 14 games in a two-win season in 2013, the Texans have opened 2014 with back-to-back wins under new coach Bill O’Brien. The home opener for the Raiders (0-2) hardly could have gone worse as they fell behind 27-0 after three quarters and were booed.

     
  • Newton, defense lead Panthers over Lions Sep 14, 2014 3:54 PM
    Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are back atop the NFC South. Newton made a successful return from a rib injury that sidelined him the first week, throwing for 281 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers’ 24-7 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He completed 22 of 34 and overcame four sacks. Carolina started 2-0 for the first time since 2008 and took over sole possession of first place in the division after Atlanta lost to Cincinnati. Trailing 7-6 in the third quarter, the Panthers took advantage of back-to-back Detroit turnovers and scored on three straight possessions. Carolina’s defense, playing without Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy, had three takeaways and held the Lions scoreless in the first half one week after Matthew Stafford and company put up 35 points against the Giants. Hardy, convicted on two counts of domestic violence on July 15, was a surprise inactive. The Panthers decided not to play Hardy a day after the Minnesota Vikings announced they would deactivate Adrian Peterson, who was indicted on child abuse charges. Mario Addison filled in nicely for Hardy with 2 ½ sacks. Stafford threw for 291 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was sacked four times. The Lions (1-1) took a 7-6 lead early in the third quarter when Stafford connected on a 1-yard touchdown pass to fullback Jed Collins, who bowled over NFL Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly en route to the end zone. But the lead was short-lived. Newton bounced back leading the Panthers on an eight-play 72-yard drive and connected on his first TD pass of the season, a 14-yard strike to Jason Avant on a slant route. Thomas DeCoud tipped a deep ball from Stafford and Melvin White intercepted to set up Carolina’s next score. Rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who struggled with dropped balls all day, hauled in a one-handed grab along the left sideline. Stewart capped the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run and Newton threw to Jerricho Cotchery for a two-point conversion to put Carolina up 21-7. Jeremy Ross fumbled the ensuing kickoff Panthers kicker Graham Gano recovered the fumble. Gano then made his third field goal of the game for the final score. Wearing a thick flak jacket, Newton didn’t change the way he played. He scrambled from the pocket on one second quarter run and dived headfirst instead of sliding. He did the same thing near the goal line midway through the fourth quarter. The plays where similar to the preseason game against New England when the fourth-year quarterback broke free from the pocket and dove headfirst only to get kneed in the ribs by a Patriots player. That hit sidelined Newton for the season opener against Tampa Bay. The Lions failed to take advantage of their scoring opportunities with rookie Nate Freese missing two field goals, Joique Bell fumbling in Carolina territory and Calvin Johnson dropping a potential TD catch.

     
  • Bears roar back to beat 49ers Sep 14, 2014 11:06 PM
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Down big, Jay Cutler kept his poise on the road while Colin Kaepernick struggled in prime time. Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicago’s starting defense went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levi’s Stadium debut. Cutler threw three TD passes to Brandon Marshall, two in the wild fourth quarter, as Chicago erased a 13-point deficit and quieted the sellout crowd. Cutler threw for two scores in a 27-second span early in the final period, aided by the gutsy play of a backup cornerback. Kyle Fuller made two late interceptions for the depleted Chicago secondary, and the first set up the go-ahead score. Kaepernick was hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for “inappropriate language” following Fuller’s first big play. That gave the Bears first-and-goal on the 3, and Cutler threw a 3-yard TD pass to Martellus Bennett as the Bears went ahead 21-20. Kaepernick threw three interceptions in all, lost a fumble and his cool, a far cry from his breakout start on the Monday night stage nearly two years ago in a rout of the Bears. Cutler sat out that night with a concussion. A sloppy game filled with 26 penalties 16 by the Niners and a crazy collapse overshadowed the fanfare of the regular-season debut for the sparkling $1.2 billion stadium. The Bears (1-1), in a stretch with six of eight games on the road, go home with some serious momentum despite injuries on both sides of the ball. Five key defenders are hurt: cornerbacks Sherrick McManis (quadriceps) and Charles Tillman (triceps), defensive end Trevor Scott (foot), safety Chris Conte (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion). The 49ers (1-1) had a 17-7 halftime lead, but missed an opportunity to grab an early lead in the NFC West after the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks lost earlier in the day at San Diego. Michael Crabtree caught a touchdown pass on his 27th birthday and Frank Gore ran for a score but also had his 54-yard TD burst negated by Anquan Boldin’s costly holding penalty. Cutler helped the Bears get on the board with a 25-yard run late in the first half. He took a jarring hit from Quinton Dial with 56 seconds remaining, but stayed in the game and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Marshall, who made a leaping, one-handed catch to pull the ball into his body as he fell into the end zone. What a way for Chicago to forget that bitter 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills at home in Week 1. San Francisco didn’t give the ball away once in a season-opening win at Dallas. In the first half, the 49ers outgained Chicago 197-93 and out-penalized the Bears 10-7 for 85 lost yards. The much-scrutinized field featured visible chunks of loose sod after new grass was laid for a third time since April. Kaepernick made his first career start against the Bears nearly two years ago, and then held onto the No. 1 job over Alex Smith. Cutler didn’t face the 49ers during a November 2012 Monday night game at Candlestick Park. A concussion to now-Chiefs QB Smith thrust Kaepernick into the spotlight that night, and he threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the Niners pounded the Bears 32-7. The 49ers were embarrassed at home for the second time in a month. They lost 34-0 in a rout by Denver in the first preseason game in the new stadium. Chicago’s patchwork offensive line looked shaky early with center Roberto Garza and left guard Matt Slauson each sidelined by ankle injuries. San Francisco tight ends Vance McDonald (knee) and Vernon Davis (ankle) were hurt as the 49ers lost a home opener for the first time under fourth-year coach Jim Harbaugh.

     
  • Patriots bounce back to beat Vikings Sep 14, 2014 3:45 PM
    Tom Brady and the New England Patriots took advantage of Adrian Peterson’s absence. Matt Cassel’s four interceptions, too. Chandler Jones returned a field goal he blocked for a touchdown right before halftime, and Brady and the Patriots cruised from there for a 30-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Brady went 15 for 22 for 142 yards, one touchdown and no turnovers, and Cassel’s first start against his close friend and former mentor was a dud. Devin McCourty, Darrelle Revis, Logan Ryan and Dominique Easley all picked him off, setting up 17 points for the Patriots and prompting “Teddy! Teddy! Teddy!” chants from the crowd for rookie backup Teddy Bridgewater. Cassel finished 19 for 36 for 202 yards. Matt Asiata caught an early touchdown pass from Cassel but had only 36 yards on 13 carries in place of Peterson, who was shelved for the game after a charge of child abuse was levied against him Friday in Texas. His status for the rest of the season is unclear. The pass-run ratio last week for the Patriots was 60-20 in a shaky loss at Miami, but they established a much better balance here. Ridley carried 25 times for 101 yards, and Brady found a vulnerable target in Vikings second-year cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who was listed as questionable for the game because of a groin injury. He wasn’t able to keep up with Edelman, most glaringly on the possession right after the interception by Revis. Edelman, who also had a 34-yard punt return, had two first-down catches plus the wide-open grab in the corner of the end zone for a 17-7 lead. Edelman finished with six catches for 81 yards. One of the many hallmarks of success under Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been an ability to avoid consecutive losses. Over the last four years they’ve had only two losing streaks, of just two games apiece. The last time the Patriots lost the first two games of the season was 2001, when they went on to win their first of three Super Bowl titles. The Vikings sure started strong, finishing off a smooth opening drive with a 25-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Asiata after moving 80 yards in seven plays solely with Asiata and the tight ends. They forced a three-and-out, too, but the Patriots just needed one bad throw by Brady’s former backup to shift the momentum. Cassel’s heave to Jarius Wright hung in the air long enough for McCourty to snag it and bring the ball to the 1 after a 60-yard return. Ridley scored two plays later. Revis had Greg Jennings smothered for much of the game, and the five-time Pro Bowl pick grabbed an errant pass by Cassel early in the second quarter to set up the first of three field goals by Stephen Gostkowski. Then, after the Vikings got in position for a 48-yard kick by Blair Walsh that would’ve pulled them within seven points at the intermission, Jones powered through the line, stretched his arms out and batted down the ball. He picked it up in stride and headed for the end zone, effectively quashing the hope for a second-half comeback. The Dolphins rushed for 191 yards against the Patriots. But without Peterson, the Vikings finished with just 54 yards on 19 attempts. They were also the only team in the NFL last week to not allow a touchdown, but the defense regressed against Brady and the Patriots. He struggled badly against Cincinnati last season when Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was defensive coordinator for the Bengals, but Belichick and Brady had the decisive edge on this sun-splashed afternoon.

     
  • Packers beat Jets 31-24 Sep 15, 2014 12:14 AM
    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns, Jordy Nelson had a career-high 209 yards receiving and the Green Bay Packers rallied from an 18-point deficit for a 31-24 win over the New York Jets on Sunday. New York appeared to tie it with 5 minutes left on a 37-yard touchdown catch by Jeremy Kerley on fourth down — but it was negated because the Jets (1-1) called a timeout from the sideline just before the snap. The Packers (1-1) held on from there to avoid its first 0-2 start since 2006. Randall Cobb caught two short scoring strikes and a 2-point conversation that gave the Packers a 24-21 lead in the third quarter. Green Bay (1-1) went up 31-24 late in the third quarter when Nelson worked a double move on Dee Milliner for an 80-yard touchdown catch.

     
  • Bears turn things around in a hurry to beat 49ers Sep 15, 2014 11:46 AM
    Just when it appeared the game would turn into a rout, the Bears' offense came to life. Then the defense delivered. It all added up to one of the most unlikely reversals of fortune in recent Bears history. The result was a 28-20 Bears victory that left both teams at 1-1.

     
  • Imrem: Just like that, all is well for Bears Sep 15, 2014 11:36 AM
    Crisis? What crisis? The angst over the Bears' opening loss to Buffalo last week was soothed by a gutsy victory in the 49ers fancy new stadium.

     
  • Bears Bites: It’s a whole new season Sep 15, 2014 5:04 AM
    Brandon Marshall pulled a Willis Reed, Kyle Fuller pulled a Wally Pipp and Jay Cutler pulled himself up from a brutal hit to rally the Bears back for an absolute must-win.
