–The Brewers pounded out 12 hits, hitting three home runs and the pitching staff kept the Rockies off the board for the second straight game as Milwaukee swept Colorado in the National League Division Series with the win Sunday afternoon in Denver. Erik Kratz had three hits, while Jesus Aguilar, Orlando Arcia and Keon Broxton hit home runs to power the Brewers offense.

Detroit 31, Green Bay 23
–The Packers outgained the Lions by 257 yards, but it was overall a day to forget for the Green and Gold as they lost to Detroit Sunday at Ford Field, their third straight loss to the Lions after getting swept in 2017. Green Bay totaled 521 yards to Detroit’s 264, but three turnovers and a nightmare day from Mason Crosby plagued the Packers. Aaron Rodgers lost two fumbles, while Crosby missed four field goals and an extra point before making a 41 yarder with seven seconds left in the game.
Rodgers completed 32 of 52 passes for 442 yards and three touchdowns in the loss. Davante Adams caught nine passes for 140 yards and one of those scores for Green Bay. The 2-2-1 Packers host San Francisco next Monday night.
Minnesota 23, Philadelphia 21
–The Vikings built a 20-3 lead before holding off a late Eagles rally in the win. Minnesota is 2-2-1 and hosts the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday.

The top four of the AP Poll remains unchanged, with Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Clemson all holding serve from last week.
