Eagles Get Late Victory Over Packers, Brewers Reduce NL Central Deficit To One Game, Lakers’ Kuzma Out With Foot Injury

Grace Higgins | September 27th, 2019

The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t get off to the kind of start to the season that they would have liked ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers. But that didn’t hold them back on the road as they Aaron Rodgers and co. on the road to record an impressive 34-27 victory. Rodgers was back to his ridiculous self in this game, throwing for over 400 yards on 34-53 passing as the Packers were forced to chase from behind for most of the game. They did so successfully, too, staying on the heels of the Eagles. They appeared to be set to tie the game up yet again in the fourth quarter with less than a minute to go as well, but that didn’t end up working out. Rodgers dropped back to throw a short crossing pattern only to see the ball deflected high in the air and then caught for an interception. That erased their comeback effort on the goal line. It also erased what had been a 10-0 lead in the second quarter that the Packers had had. It was another strange game, but that’s what you get on short rest with Thursday night games.

The Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals now have three games remaining, and with those three to go, the margin that the Cards have over their rivals in the NL Central is just one game after the Brewers won their ‘catch up’ game 5-3 over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. Aristides Aquino, yet again, got the Reds off to a quick start with another home run in the first inning, but three doubles in two innings for the Brewers drove in five runs to give them a lead that was ultimately unassailable. It now will come down to the final three. Milwaukee will take on the Colorado Rockies on the road while the Cardinals will host the Cubs, who are going to end up playing a weakened team. Manager Joe Maddon has already claimed the Brew Crew will complain no matter what, but that he will play as good a team as he can. We shall see what the end result of that is. Either way, it’s not looking good for the Brewers, in all honesty to take the division crown.

Last season was not the kind of year the Los Angeles Lakers wanted to have, not by a long shot. But Kyle Kuzma was a big bright spot for them, scoring 20+ points on a consistent basis and earning a spot back on the team. Besides he and LeBron, no one else could say that after a summer shakeup, so it’s disappointing that he is now out indefinitely with a foot injury. It’s the same foot injury that kept him off of Team USA for the FIBA World Cup. It’s said that he will be missing for at least the first three weeks of training camp, so they are hoping he will return for the regular season, or close thereto, at the very least.
