Morning Rewind, 9/29: Rodgers puts on a show in MNF win

Rodgers' 5 TDs Lead Packers Over Chiefs
Rodgers' 5 TDs Lead Packers Over Chiefs


If you were playing Aaron Rodgers, James Jones or Randall Cobb in fantasy this week, we're so, so sorry.

Rodgers slung five touchdowns on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs -- three to Cobb, one to Jones and one to Ty Montgomery. Jones racked up 139 yards while Cobb tacked on 91 more. Rodgers compiled 333 yards before the night was through, giving Green Bay its third straight victory to begin the season.


Jeremy Maclin quietly put on a show for Kansas City, going for 141 yards and a score, while Jamaal Charles added three touchdowns on only 11 carries.

Now 1-2, the Chiefs travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals in Week 4. Green Bay will try to stay undefeated against the 49ers in San Francisco.

Packers 38, Chiefs 28

MLB Playoff Races
BOS 5, NYY 1

The Yankees had a chance to wrap up the first Wild Card seed on Monday, but that'll need to wait at least another day. Ivan Nova allowed four runs over seven innings -- not a bad start -- but the Yanks' offense could only manage one run against Eduardo Rodriguez.

STL 3, PIT 0
The Cardinals shave two off their magic number by beating the Pirates, reducing that mark to two entering Tuesday.

TOR 4, BAL 3

A win for the Jays on Monday sets up a potentially division-clinching Tuesday, but they'll need a little help. A win and another Yankees loss to Boston would do the trick.

MIN 4, CLE 2
Minnesota is still clinging to playoff contention, 1.5 games behind Houston for the final Wild Card seed but with the Angels still between them at a half-game out.

DET 7, TEX 4
A loss to Detroit brings Texas' division lead down to 1.5 games, with Houston beating Seattle on Monday and a soft schedule remaining for them. After finishing their three games with the Tigers, the Rangers will face the Angels for a crucial four-game set.

LAA 5, OAK 4

The Angels and Astros are both within two games of Texas for the division, making this weekend's four-game series between Los Angeles and Texas a must-watch.

HOU 3, SEA 2
After a rough September, perhaps Houston can string together some wins and recover their first-place standing in the West that they maintained through most of the year.

SF 3, LAD 2
Los Angeles had a chance to clinch the division, but they fell in 12 innings to the Giants. Zack Greinke recovered nicely after allowing a pair of early runs, and Andre Ethier tied the game in the eighth with a clutch hit. But an Alejandro De Aza sac fly won it for San Fran, and the Dodgers will need to wait at least one more day to pop the corks.
