NFL Power Rankings: rising and falling behind QB play (1:00)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers reach 100 wins for the first time since 1974. The Cubs are one win away from the NL Central title. The Rockies fail to increase their lead on the Brewers and Rockies. The magic number update: Cubs 1; Twins 2 (to clinch wild card); Red Sox 3 (to clinch AL East); Rockies 5 (to clinch wild card); Dodgers 2 (to clinch No. 1 seed in NL); Indians 5 (to clinch No. 1 seed in AL).

Here's how a former Big Ten assistant assessed 12 of the visiting locker rooms in the league. It's definitely a problem. Illinois = pathetic. Purdue = pathetic. Nebraska = OK. Wisconsin = OK. Iowa = OK. Michigan = below average. Michigan State = pathetic. Minnesota = nice. Maryland = pathetic. Northwestern = pathetic. Penn State = OK. Ohio State = below average.

Packers to sign John with O-line banged up

The Packers will sign Ulrick John off the Cardinals' practice squad to help reinforce a banged-up offensive line on a short week ahead of Green Bay's Week 4 game against the Bears on Thursday night.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike McCarthy is the offensive tackle situation is a "work in progress. We're frankly still working through it." Packers haven't had their preferred starting tackle combo yet this season and probably won't again Thursday vs. Chicago.

Brett Goode "gutted it out" through a hamstring injury from early in Sunday's game, coach Mike McCarthy said.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Brett Goode was slow to get up after the snap on the game-winning field goal. Just noticed that re-watching the kick. Snap was perfect though.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Another roster move for the Packers: Long-snapper Brett Goode is headed to injured reserve with a hamstring problem. Taybor Pepper, who was here during the offseason, has been re-signed.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers are signing offensive lineman Ulrick John off the Cardinals practice squad, his agent told ESPN. John is flying to Green Bay tonight and could be active for Thursday's game because of all the O-line injuries.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Now the Packers' top-3 offensive tackles are on the injury report. It's an estimate because they didn't practice today but Bryan Bulaga (ankle) and Kyle Murphy (foot) would not have practice but David Bakhtiari would've been limited.

Nine teams that entered Week 3 at 1-1 emerged victorious: the Bills, Eagles, Jaguars, Packers, Patriots, Rams, Redskins, Titans and Vikings. Since the playoff field expanded to 12 in 1990, teams that start 2-1 have reached the playoffs more than twice as often as those that start 1-2.
