Packers offensive woes continue in loss to Lions
The Green Bay Packers offense struggled yet again on Sunday in a 19-7 road loss to Detroit on Sunday afternoon. Aaron Rodgers was held to under 200 yards passing for the second time in three weeks and a solid defensive effort was wasted as Green Bay fell to 1-2 on the year.

Matthews is on the move in Packers defense
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has a sack and five quarterback hurries in two games, but it feels like a "drop" in production for the four-time Pro Bowler. Is it because he's moving around in Dom Capers' new defense, or because he's in coverage more often? He doesn't think so.

Krushing it: Brewers' Davis finds his balance at the plate
It seems like a long time ago, but Khris Davis' ability to adjust his approach at the plate in mid-May (and carry it through the year) has helped the Milwaukee Brewers' left fielder remain a powerful factor in the lineup as the team looks to wrap up a postseason berth this month.

The Green Bay Packers needed something to change, offensively or defensively, after falling behind 21-3 to the New York Jets on Sunday.

I was (OK, still am) a sports nut. I love the games. I have an appreciation for the players and respect what they do. But when I was a kid, the athletes (and some coaches) were superheroes. I only saw them on TV, or maybe a couple times a year at a ballpark. One way for a younger me to connect was to write letters and ask for autographs.
