Bears. Packers, Colts Win

Congratulations to the Milford/Cissna Park Bearcats on Winning the first ever Illinois High School 8 Man Football Championship Friday night at Monmouth College.

 

NFL

CHICAGO (AP) — Mitchell Trubisky threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns, and the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 34-22 to snap a 10-game losing streak against division opponents.

 

The Packers rolled to a 31-12 win over the Dolphins as Aaron Jones ran for career-highs of 145 yards and two touchdowns. Aaron Rodgers was 19 of 28 for 199 yards, including two scoring strikes to Davante Adams.

 

Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes in the first half and the Colts' defense forced a late turnover to preserve a 29-26 victory over the Jaguars.

 

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Kyle Busch has won for the eighth time this season and set up a head-to-head showdown with Kevin Harvick for NASCAR's championship. Busch's win Sunday at ISM Raceway outside of Phoenix tied him with Harvick for most this year in the Cup Series. The two were the most dominant drivers this season and will race next week at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the title against reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano.

Bears Win, Packers Lose

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Jordan Howard scored two touchdowns and the Chicago Bears' defense scored another two in a 41-9 win over the Bills in what proved to be another comedy of errors for Buffalo and its anemic offense. Eddie Jackson scored on a 65-yard fumble return and Leonard Floyd returned a tipped pass 19 yards for another score some 3 1/2 minutes apart in the second quarter.

 

Patriots beat the Packers 31-17

 

UNDATED (AP) — Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame remain the top three teams in The Associated Press college football poll, but Michigan has climbed to fourth and Georgia moved up to fifth. The Crimson Tide remain the unanimous No. 1 selection following a 29-0 shutout of previously-fourth-ranked LSU. Oklahoma is sixth, followed by West Virginia, Ohio State, LSU and Washington State.

 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Kevin Harvick earned a shot at another NASCAR Cup championship by blowing past polesitter Ryan Blaney in overtime to win at Texas Motor Speedway. It is the second year in a row that that the 2014 Cup champion has won the fall race at Texas to get into the final four. With Joey Logano and Harvick locked in after winning the past two races, the series goes to Phoenix next week with only two spots up for grabs for the championship run at Homestead in two weeks.
