–The Packers couldn’t hold a lead late and a fumble on a kickoff return stopped any hopes of a comeback as they fell to the Rams at the LA Coliseum on Sunday. Green Bay jumped out to a 10-0 lead, but saw the Rams pull within two at halftime at 10-8. A pair of touchdowns in the third quarter gave the Rams a 23-13 lead, but the Packers battled back, getting a touchdown run from Aaron Jones and a 40 yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Marquez Valdez-Scantling to go ahead 27-26 with 8:50 to play. Greg Zuerlein made a 34-yard field goal to put LA ahead with 2:05 to play, then Ty Montgomery fumbled the ensuing kickoff and the Rams recovered and ran out the clock to end the game.
Rodgers completed 18 passes for 286 yards and a score, Aaron Jones had 12 carries for 86 yards and a score, while Davante Adams had five catches for 133 yards in the loss. Green Bay drops to 3-3-1 and has to visit the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

Wisconsin dropped out of both national polls this week after their 31-17 loss on the road at Northwestern on Saturday. Wisconsin was at number 19 in the coaches poll and at number 20 in the AP Poll before their loss – which saw the Badgers lose three fumbles that led to 17 points for the Wildcats. Sophomore quarterback Jack Coan had 158 yards passing and threw for a touchdown to Kendric Pryor in the loss – that score came with Northwestern already ahead 31-10 and the outcome no longer in doubt. The Badgers host 1-7 Rutgers on Saturday – the Scarlet Knights were off Saturday after losing a close game to Northwestern the previous week 18-15.
In the AP Top 25, the top 5 teams remain unchanged from last week with Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, LSU and Michigan holding down the top five. Georgia moves up a spot to number six, Oklahoma up to seven, Ohio State up to eight, Central Florida up one to number nine, and Washington State moving up four spots to number 10.
