The Brewers open their final road series of the season tonight in Cincinnati.  The Brewers slim playoff chances could be dashed tonight.  After Pittsburgh’s 1-0 win over Atlanta last night, a Brewers loss and Pirate win tonight would clinch the Wild Card for the Pirates. Tonight’s coverage begins at 5:35pm on News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.  Mike Fiers takes on Johnny Cueto. 


The Cardinals also beat the Cubs 8-0 on Monday. 


Jay Cutler tossed a pair of TD passes as the Bears stopped the Jets 27-19 on Monday Night Football.  Chicago improves to 2-1 on the season.  They host the Packers on Sunday.


The Packers will take today off before getting back on the practice field in preparation for the Bears on Sunday.  If the Packers are going to avoid a 1-3 start they must find a way to solve their offensive problems.  Green Bay’s offense is ranked #28 in the league through three weeks.  Sunday’s game kicks off at Noon.  You’ll hear it on KFIZ.


Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon was name the co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week after his 5 touchdown, 253 yard rushing day. He shares the award with Nebraska’s Ameer Abdulah. Wisconsin hosts South Florida on Saturday morning at 11am on KFIZ.


The Fond du Lac football team moved up one spot to #6 in this week’s Associated Press Large Schools High School Football Poll.  St. Mary’s Springs remains #1 in the Small Schools Poll.  Fondy hosts Oshkosh North on Friday night for Homecoming while the Ledgers play at WLA.  You’ll hear the Cardinals game on KFIZ and the Ledger and Vikings game on K107.1 presented by BCI Burke Company.
