Both home teams
won as Monday Night Football kicked off with a doubleheader last night. Atlanta jumped out to a
20-3 lead and held on to beat the Eagles 26-24.   Julio Jones caught 9 passes for 141 yards
and 2 TDs.  Carlos Hyde rushed for 168
yards and 2 TDs as San Francisco
stopped the Vikings 20-3.  Adrian
Peterson had just 31 yards for Minnesota.


The Packers take
today off before hitting the practice field on Wednesday in preparation for the
Seahawks on Sunday Night Football. 
You’ll hear the game on News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.   Coverage begins at 5pm.


The Wisconsin
Badgers will host Troy
on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. 
That game kicks off at 2:30pm with coverage set for 12:30pm on KFIZ.


The Brewers hope
to play the spoiler role as they open up a three game series with St. Louis tonight at Miller Park.
St. Louis holds a 2.5 game lead over Pittsburgh in the NL
Central.   Ariel Pena starts for Milwaukee with Carlos
Martinez on the rubber for the Cardinals. Coverage begins at 6:35pm on KFIZ.

announced that they have hired Gus Johnson to announce 20 games on Fox Sports
Wisconsin.  Johnson will work those games
in place of long-time announcer Jim Paschke. 
Former Buck Marques Johnson will also be involved in about 55 broadcasts
as a color man as John McGlocklin continues to ease out of that role.
