Excellent read for Aaron Rodgers on the TD pass to WR Davante Adams. Quick slant route vs. man-coverage. Adams created space off the release. Great footwork. 7-0 Packers over the Lions in the first quarter.

Bengals have said all week their run game was an easy fix. They started that quickly today. First Jeremy Hill has a 50-yard run down the sideline, then he gets in a few plays later for an early score. Took the Bengals only 5 plays to score for an early 7-0 lead over the Broncos.

Team Europe is going to have to play a perfect game to beat Sweden in World Cup semis. Swedes are patient and play within their system. Then Jaro Halak is going to have to outplay Henrik Lundqvist. Tall order for Europe but they've surprised before.

Redskins corner Bashaud Breeland was carried off the field and was not putting any pressure on his right leg. His loss would be a big one as they had planned to have him cover Sterling Shepard in the slot.

There are plenty of empty seats at Bank of America Stadium before the Vikings and Panthers kick off. We'll see if the crowd fills up, or if some fans stayed away because of the unrest in downtown Charlotte.

Jose Fernandez inspired with his story of perseverance and he radiated pure joy when he was on the field. There were few like him. I remember being at Fort Bragg for the July 3 game. There weren't many who were more in awe of the day and more honored to be there than Jose Fernandez. His reverence for this country was easily recognized. He and Ichiro stayed on the field at Fort Bragg after the game and took it all in. He was pure talent, certainly. But he didn't mind if you pimped a HR when you got one off of him. He smiled along with you. That's joy you can't fake. The baseball world, the sports world, the world has lost a shining light today.

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was saddened and shocked by the news of Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez's passing Sunday: "That smile I'm not going to see anymore. That personality and love for the game, the love for everything really."
