Packers fall short to the Colts in OT

The Green Bay Packers faced the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday falling short of victory in a heavily contested overtime matchup, 31-34. 

 

For the second consecutive game, the Packers did not score on the opening drive but were able to put up the first score of the game with a 25-yard touchdown catch to Robert Tonyan from Aaron Rodgers. After the Colts put a drive together of their own, the score finished 7-7 in the first quarter. Green Bay entered halftime ahead 28-14 with a trio of scores, one coming from Aaron Jones on the ground, another from Davante Adams through the air for a 5-yard scoring reception and a last second 4-yard touchdown pass to Jamaal Williams. 

 

Green Bay kicked off the second half to the Colts, giving Indianapolis the opportunity to kick a field goal, making it a 28-17 game. After the Packers managed a three and out drive, Indianapolis drove down the field with a combination of running and passing plays that led to a touchdown and 2-point conversion putting the Colts in reach, 25-28. Fourth quarter play started with Indianapolis tacking on back-to-back field goals to go ahead 31-28. Green Bay was saved by the Colts who consumed 6 holding calls late in the fourth quarter, which led to a Packers scoring opportunity with 1:25 left to play. Aaron Rodgers threw a 47-yard bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling that set up Mason Crosby for a game-tying field goal, sending the contest to overtime, 31-31. Green Bay received the ball to kick off overtime that started their offensive drive with a crucial fumble play that gave Indianapolis an opportunity to set up for what would be the game winning field goal. The 31-34 loss puts Green Bay to 7-3 on the season and out of the first-round bye spot in the NFC heading into week 12 against the Chicago Bears. 


Gamblers fall short to Chicago

Badgers suffer first loss of the season

The Wisconsin Badgers suffer first loss of the season and fall out of first place in the Big Ten West Conference standings. 

 

The Badgers could not find a way to beat the Northwestern Wildcats Saturday night but instead beat themselves with 5 turnovers to Northwestern's 1. The game started with a Wildcat strike from quarterback  Peyton Ramsey, but the Badgers fired right back with a Graham Mertz passing touchdown to receiver Chimere Dike. The Badgers remained scoreless the rest of the first half while Northwestern scored another passing touchdown to go ahead 14-7 heading into the locker room. The second half was a defensive battle between both teams resulting in a scoreless effort by the Badgers while Northwestern tacked on a fourth quarter field goal to go up 17-7 which ended up being the final score. The Badgers committed eight penalties that went for 89 yards, including 4 pass interferences, 3 of them coming in the first half. Wisconsin’s loss puts them at 2-1 overall, good enough for second place in the Big Ten conference. The Badgers look to bounce back next weekend when they face off for the border axe battle against Minnesota.


Bucks continue to make moves

The Milwaukee Bucks continue to restructure their roster as Bucks general manager Jon Horst struck deals with three key free-agent players on Saturday. 

 

Guard, D.J. Augustin signed with Milwaukee for a three-year deal worth $21 million and forward Bobby Portis signed for a two-year contract worth $7.5 million with a player option for the second year of the deal according to ESPN’s Adrain Wojnarowski. Free-agent shooting guard Pat Connaughton will re-sign with Milwaukee for a three-year deal over $16 million after ESPN’s Wojnarowski found that Excel Sports Management restructured the original deal from a $8 million two-year agreement on Friday night.

 

 Augustin spent last season with the Orlando Magic and was utilized as the primary backup point guard that averaged 10.5 points per game while playing over 24 minutes per game. Portis, 25-years-old will come into the organization spending time with the Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards and most recently New York Knicks. The power forward has accumulated a 5.9 career rebound per game average while shooting 45% from the field. These acquisitions come shortly after the departure of Ersan Illyasova and Robin Lopez.


Gamblers suffer first loss of the season

The Green Bay Gamblers could not keep up with the Chicago Steel Friday night in Bensenville, losing 7-3.

 

The Steel jumped all over Matt Davis, scoring five of their seven goals in the game's first 27 minutes. The Gamblers did start the game on a positive note with Cam Thiesing scoring his first goal of the season, receiving the puck from Mason Lohrei and Jesse Tucker. The Steel then rattled off six straight goals, led by Matthew Coronato's two goals and one assist during that span. Thiesing found the back of the net with help from Jake Schmaltz to stop the streak. The two teams traded goals in the third period with Kyler Grundy scoring his second goal.

 

The venue switches to the Resch Center Saturday night as the Gamblers host the Steel at 7:05 p.m. Tobin Meyer will have the call on 104.1 WRLU and streaming worldwide at NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com. 


Packers are getting healthier

The Green Bay Packers have been missing some key players on both sides of the ball.

 

Green Bay defensive back, Kevin King was a full participant in practice today, his third day in a row and is signifying a probable chance to play on Sunday. As for his defensive backfield teammate in Jaire Alexander who participated in the full practice, will need to gain full medical clearance before granting a return, he is slowly recovering from his concussion that occured in week 9. Offensive superstar receiver Davante Adams has been pacing himself this week in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Adams tweaked his ankle during last week's game and remains limited in practice. Packers.com caught up with head coach Matt Lafleur today, speaking on Adams' situation "I think he's made good progress, he should be good to go." If Adams plays this Sunday, the Packers’ offense will have Adams, Aaron Jones and Allen Lazard all together, which will be the first time since week 2.


Brewers promote internally

The Milwaukee Brewers announced yesterday that they have an internal promotion in the front office management staff. 

 

Matt Arnold, senior vice president and general manager of the Brewers, previously held the senior vice president and assistant general manager position. The announcement came yesterday directly from president of baseball operations, David Stearns. In addition to Stearns announcing Arnold's new role: “For the past five years, Matt has served an invaluable role in helping to guide our baseball operations group. He has contributed to every significant decision we have made and has offered indispensable advice and support throughout his time with the Brewers. Today’s announcement formalizes how we have operated over the last few years. This move provides Matt with the deserved recognition of his tireless work and ensures that our baseball operations leadership group remains intact.” Throughout Arnold's time, Milwaukee ranks in the National League's top five for win percentage. Before arriving in Milwaukee, Arnold spent seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds and Tampa Bay Rays, which he was a part of the Rays' first World Series appearance.


Badgers, Wildcats battle of the unbeatens

The University of Wisconsin football team is looking to stay undefeated this weekend. Wisconsin will visit the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. to see who will control the west side of the conference and remain on the path to the College Football Playoffs. Wisconsin is 2-0 and ranked 10th in the Nation after dominating the Michigan Wolverines last weekend. The Wildcats are 4-0 and ranked 19th in the Associated Press poll after a team victory last weekend over Purdue University. The Badgers come into this game leading the Big Ten in scoring with 47.0 points per game (ppg) while Northwesterns’ defensive unit only allows 14.0 ppg. This year each team have new faces under the center; undefeated redshirt freshman Graham Mertz will be starting his third career game as quarterback while Northwestern’s honorable-mention All-Big Ten quarterback Peyton Ramsey is a graduate student in his final year of eligibility. The two programs squared off last season and time of possession favored the Badgers, giving them the victory (24-15). 


Gamblers look to continue early success

The Green Bay Gamblers are looking to stay perfect at the top of the league. Green Bay is 3-0 and has had great success this far, both from team play and individual performances; Mason Lorhei has cultivated back-to-back game winners over the last two games, awarding him the team’s player of the week title, while goaltender Matt Davis continues to shine with 82 saves on the season. Gamblers head coach and general manager Pat Mikesch tends to agree:

 

 

The Gamblers are looking ahead to a three-game stretch versus the Chicago Steel. One game will be played in Geneva, Illinois this Friday at 7:05 p.m. and the remaining two games will be at the Resch Center on Saturday night and next week Wednesday. Chicago is coming off a season opening loss against the Muskegon Lumberjacks, while Green Bay has three quality games of play under their belt. NEW Radio Sports Network will broadcast the game on 104.1 WRLU and on NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com.


Shooting a priority for Bucks draft class

The Milwaukee Bucks took a pair of shooters with their draft selections Wednesday night. The Bucks initially had the 24th overall pick, but that was given to the New Orleans Pelicans in the deal for Jrue Holiday. 

 

The aftermath of recent trade and draft acquisitions put the Bucks draft selections into the second-round for picks No. 45 and No. 60. Jordan Nwora out of the University of Louisville was selected as the 45th pick, the 6-foot-7, 22-year-old is a small forward that was on the path to third team All-American honors last season according to USBWA. Nwora is recognized as a strong shooter because of his 40%  three-point success rate. He averaged 18 points and over 7 rebounds in his last season with Louisville. In June of 2018 Nwora played for his father in the FIBA World Cup qualifiers and averaged over 21 points with 8 rebounds.

 

With the final pick of the draft, the Bucks picked Sam Merrill of Utah State University. Merrill is noted as one of the drafts premier shot makers. The 24-year-old, 6-foot-5 guard earned the 2019 Mountain West Player of the Year award, while he averaged nearly 20 points a game, draining 41% from the three point line and making 89% of his free throw shots. The Bucks rookie draft class will have a short turnaround compared to previous draft class years as the first game is set for December 22nd.


Mets denied access to Brewer's GM Stearns

The New York Mets and company have been soul searching for a new front office member. David Stearns, president of baseball operations for the Milwaukee Brewers, was listed as an interview prospect, but the Brewers denied the opportunity. The underlying motive comes with Stearns growing up in New York as a Mets fan and that he began his MLB employment in the Mets organization after graduating from Harvard. Milwaukee took action to decline this occurrence from happening earlier this week, Stearns signed a private multi-year contract extension in 2019 that brought him a promotion from general manager to his current rank.


Giannis, Bucks future at stake

Back-to-back NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks remains focused on the season with all the activity occurring. He will be joined by two recent acquisitions this 2020-21 season in former Sacramento Kings forward Bogdan Bogdanovic and former New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday. Antetokoumpo looks for the Bucks to win a championship, recently telling journalist Alexander Nilsson "There are a lot of rumors. Everyone has opinions. But at the end of the day, I will do what is best for my family. I do not see why I could not be in Milwaukee for several years. As long as Milwaukee and I are on the same page when it comes to being one of the best teams in the league and winning championships, that's fine.” Antetokounmpo is looking to sign a five-year supermax extension this offseason around $220 million, if the deal does not go through, free agency is an option.

Remembering Paul Hornung

1956 Heisman Trophy Winner of the Notre Dame Irish and Green Bay Packer legend Paul Hornung passed away late last week after a long battle with dementia. Former Green Bay Packer coach Vince Lombardi described him as “the greatest player I ever coached” and will be remembered by the sports world as the “Golden Boy”. Hornung played nine seasons with the Packers and contributed four of those seasons to NFL championships while leading the league in scoring from 1959 to 1961. In 1985 Hornung was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and one year later was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. NFL commissioner Roger Godell said in a statement " Paul Hornung thrilled a generation of NFL fans with his versatility, athleticism and personality.” Hornung passed at the age of 84 and is survived by his wife of 41 years, Angela Hornung. Due to COVID-19 the Packers will hold a public celebration of his life on a later date.

Packers survive Jaguars

It was not as easy as the records would have indicated before the game as the Green Bay Packers squeaked past the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon 24-20.

 

For the first time all year, the Packers did not score on its opening possession or the first quarter as the Jaguars entered the second stanza of the game up 3-0 thanks to a wind-aided field goal. The Packers would strike first in the second quarter when Aaron Rodgers hooked up with Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 78-yard touchdown. The Jaguars would get the lead back a few minutes when Keelan Cole Jr. took a punt 91 yards to make it 10-7. The Packers would end the half with a pair of scores, one coming on the legs of Aaron Rodgers from five yards out and Mason Crosby's foot to make it 17-10 at the break. Cole would find the endzone a second time in the third quarter, this time catching a 12-yard pass from Jake Luton to tie the game at 17. The Jaguars would take the lead briefly on a field goal to start the fourth quarter, but Rodgers was able to find an injured Davante Adams in the endzone for the game-winning score with just over nine minutes left in the game. Aaron Rodgers finished the game with 325 yards passing, three total touchdowns, and an interception.

 

The Packers will play again next Sunday on the road against the Indianapolis Colts at 3:25 p.m.

The Green Bay Gamblers are looking to improve to 2-0 to start the season. Green Bay opened with a 4-2 win against the Muskegon Lumberjacks at the Resch Center on November 7th.
