Mike Montgomery is through 5 innings and thrown 58 pitches without giving up a hit or walk. He's hit a batter while another reached via an error but that's all the Rays have achieved on offense so far.

Mike Montgomery is pitching fantastic so far. He hit the first batter but since then has been near perfect. He just pitched around an error by Addison Russell inducing two ground balls to end the 4th inning. He has yet to allow a hit or walk.

The Rays honored Joe Maddon with a video montage set to "Good Vibrations" after the first inning on Tuesday night. It showed Maddon during various moments of success while he was their manager from 2006-2014. He took the Rays to the playoffs four times including the 2008 World Series.

The Bears promoted safety DeAndre Houston-Carson from the practice squad to the active roster and waived wide receiver Tanner Gentry. Gentry caught 2 balls for 27 yards in Week 2, but Chicago clearly need someone with special teams experience on the roster this week. Don't be surprised to see Gentry resurface on Chicago's practice squad.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on what he sees from Michigan State so far: "Extremely disciplined, hard-nosed, play to the echo of the whistle. Just resembles a lot more of the teams that I had seen '10, '11, '12, '13. Those were supremely talented teams the last few years. This team reminds me of some of [Mark Dantonio's] earlier teams."

Mike Tomlin's scouting report of several Chicago Bears: Mike Glennon: ‘Statuesque,' 'can make any throw' Zach Miller: ‘Plays like an oversized wideout' Jordan Howard: Can be 'power back, a one-cut runner' Tarik Cohen: ‘You can compare him to a Darren Sproles-type guy.' Akiem Hicks: ‘Force,' 'thrasher,' 'disruptive.'

Arrieta has rebuilt his value with his dominant second half, but it's still anyone's guess if the 31-year-old will get a monster deal or something closer to the $90 million to $100 million range
