CHICAGO - Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers celebrated another win at Soldier Field. Rodgers threw for 297 yards, including three touchdown passes to Jermichael Finley, and the Packers (3-0) shut down Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears on the way to a 27-17 victory Sunday. Rodgers led the charge, completing 28 of 38 passes. He threw his first interception of the season, when Brian Urlacher picked him off with the Packers leading, 27-17, in the fourth quarter.

Villanova defensive end Rakim Cox has signed a free-agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings. A four-year starter at Villanova, the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Cox led the Wildcats last season in sacks (nine) and tackles for loss (111/2). In 48 career games, he had 18 sacks, 331/2 tackles for loss, and 105 tackles overall. He will try to make a Vikings team that has another local defensive lineman, second-year tackle Sharrif Floyd, a product of George Washington High, who was a first-round draft choice last season.

MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - Vince Lombardi's modest grave here looks pretty good considering that its occupant allegedly has been turning like a barbecue spit these last 41 years. Most recently, just two weeks before the Eagles meet Lombardi's old team, the Green Bay Packers, in Sunday's NFC first-round game at Lincoln Financial Field, the now-familiar image of the straight-laced coach doing subterranean revolutions was invoked by Ed Rendell. Pennsylvania's governor, incensed when the mere threat of snow postponed the Vikings-Eagles game, said the decision undoubtedly had Lombardi "spinning in his grave.

Allen Barbre agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Eagles that will keep the reserve offensive lineman signed through 2017. Barbre, who will turn 30 this month, was entering the final year of his two-year, $1.5 million contract. Terms of the extension were not available Although he is not a starter, Barbre emerged last season as the team's top reserve offensive lineman. He took 86 snaps, including 51 in place of Jason Peters in the Nov. 10 win over the Green Bay Packers.

SEQUELS have a bad habit of taking what made their predecessors popular and augmenting those aspects to the point where they just aren't fun anymore - as in thin supporting characters becoming major players, or two-bit gags becoming full-fledged plots. But "Pitch Perfect 2" avoids becoming a bigger, dumber version of the 2012 sleeper hit. Structurally, the movies are entirely similar, but writer Kay Cannon ("30 Rock") refocuses the story so that the crowd-pleasing parts are intact, without drowning out any semblance of a coherent movie.

The Kansas City Chiefs will introduce John Dorsey as their new general manager on Monday, the team said. Dorsey was the Green Bay Packers' director of football operations and has ties to new Chiefs coach Andy Reid. They worked together in Green Bay from 1992-98. The Chiefs plan to interview fired New York Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano for the offensive line job, according to an ESPN report Sunday. Sparano emerged as a candidate with the Chiefs after Cleveland offensive line coach George Warhop, who was targeted for the job by new Kansas City coach Andy Reid, elected to stay with the Browns and new head coach Rob Chudzinski.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Another night, another four-touchdown performance for Aaron Rodgers. But the real story for the Green Bay Packers' 45-7 rout of Minnesota came on the other side of the ball. The defense finally showed it can take charge of a game. Rodgers threw for four scores against a fierce Vikings pass rush, Randall Cobb returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown and the Packers defense contained Adrian Peterson, Green Bay's defense came into the game giving up nearly 300 yards passing per game, second-most in the NFL. Their last timeout, the Packers nearly blew a big lead in the fourth quarter at San Diego, holding on for a 45-38 victory.

September 14, 2012 | DAILY NEWS WIRE REPORTS A person familiar with the plans tells the Associated Press that Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday to discuss Vilma's suspension that was temporarily lifted last week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting has not been announced. Vilma was suspended for the 2012 season for his role in the Saints' bounties program that ran from 2009-11. But an appeals panel ruled last Friday that Goodell must clarify his earlier rulings to ensure no part of his decisions was based on salary-cap violations. Goodell still could reinstate the suspensions to Vilma and three other players for participating in a pay-for-injure program that violates the league's detrimental conduct policy. Buffalo defensive tackle Marcell Dareus has returned to practice after being excused to be with his family in Alabama to mourn the shooting death of his younger brother. Though absent in the locker room before practice, Dareus was on the field working out Thursday afternoon. That means he should be ready to play in the Bills' home opener against Kansas City on Sunday. Minnesota cornerback Antoine Winfield missed practice to attend his brother's funeral. Anthony Travis was murdered last week in Winfield's hometown of Akron, Ohio, and laid to rest on Thursday. Winfield played in the season opener against Jacksonville days after the 30-year-old Travis' death. St. Louis re-signed quarterback Kellen Clemens, released in the final round of cuts before the opener. Defensive tackle Darell Scott was released to make room for Clemens, who understood he'd be the backup behind Sam Bradford on Sunday against Washington in the home opener. Rookie Austin Davis was the backup for the opener. Miami running back Daniel Thomas sat out practice for the second day in a row because of a concussion, increasing the likelihood Lamar Miller will make his NFL debut Sunday against Oakland. Thomas, the backup to starter Reggie Bush, was hurt in the second quarter of Sunday's season-opening loss at Houston. Running back Ryan Mathews has been cleared for contact but was limited in practice as the San Diego Chargers continued preparing for their home opener Sunday against Tennessee. Mathews has been out since breaking his collarbone on his first carry in the exhibition opener on Aug. 9. Tight end Antonio Gates sat out his second straight practice with sore ribs. Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt is inching closer to acknowledging that Kevin Kolb will be the starting quarterback Sunday at New England. "We still have time," Whisenhunt said. "It doesn't look great for John Skelton being able to play, but Kevin's had a very good week of practice and has played well."
ON A NIGHT when defenses dominated the NFL's most storied rivalry, the Packers got creative - and it worked. Punter Tim Masthay and backup tight end Tom Crabtree combined for a touchdown on a fake field goal in the second quarter, and the Green Bay Packers rattled and robbed Jay Cutler in a 23-10 victory over the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Thursday. Cutler threw four interceptions, including a pair to Tramon Williams. Facing a fierce Packers pass rush all night, Cutler was sacked seven times, including 3 1/2 for Clay Matthews.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers threw five touchdown passes against the Chicago Bears to help the Green Bay Packers nail down the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The 35-21 mauling of the Bears allowed the Packers to claim another round of bragging rights in the NFL's most storied rivalry - and knocked Chicago out of the playoff chase. Rodgers, in throwing for five scores for the first time in his career, found tight end Jermichael Finley for a score in the first quarter then tossed a pair of touchdowns to Jordy Nelson, and another two to James Jones.

This week, there were no hugs, at least not on camera. Gov. Christie, whose Dallas Cowboys fandom has been on conspicuous display this season, was mostly absent from television screens during the team's loss Sunday to the Green Bay Packers. Christie did travel to the Packers' Lambeau Field with his son Andrew, a spokesman for the governor said. He was expected to again sit with Dallas owner Jerry Jones, although the governor's office said Friday that he would pay his own way to avoid any "silliness.

CHICAGO - On Sunday, we got our first glimpse of Sam Bradford in purple and he sure looked like a guy ready to have the best season of his career as he led the Minnesota Vikings to a huge win over the Green Bay Packers. We care, of course, only because Bradford could have been the Eagles' quarterback this season. That left Monday night to Carson Wentz, the rookie who already had the attention of the nation - everybody wants his No. 11 jersey - and its president - Joe Biden told Barack Obama to hop on the Wentz Wagon - after an impressive home debut against Cleveland.

ISSUE | NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE A unique, not a socialist, business Although the National Football League may have adopted some rules and regulations that are also found in socialist countries, it is not a socialist organization ("America's favorite socialists," Friday). Socialism is defined as state ownership of the means of production. All NFL teams, including the Green Bay Packers, are owned by private individuals. What may have confused commentary writer Tom Taft are practices meant to keep all teams competitive.

By Tom Taft Although it will come as a surprise to many, the NFL is a socialist institution. As the country prepares to watch Super Bowl 50, are there any lessons to be learned from its success? The NFL is essentially run by a central government that has the final word on everything. It's a government determined to compete effectively to maximize its share of available entertainment and advertising dollars, even at the expense of the performance of a given person or group within the system.

With one of the most popular coaching candidates off the market after Adam Gase accepted the Miami Dolphins job on Saturday, the Eagles' search now includes the most accomplished coach on the market: Tom Coughlin. The Eagles received permission from the New York Giants to interview Coughlin, according to a league source. Coughlin, 69, resigned Monday after 12 seasons and two Super Bowl championships with the Giants. Because he resigned with one year remaining on his contract, he needs permission to interview with other teams.

YOU CAN TAKE the path of least potential heartbreak and note that this has only been the preseason. You can protect yourself against potential disappointment and qualify everything the Eagles have done by saying their opponents are limiting their playbooks to base looks and schemes. You can have the stereotypical "Negadelphia" reaction and think things will be different for the Birds once the season starts and the stakes are raised. You could take any of those stances and I would be hard-pressed to say that you are wrong.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - One question Chip Kelly shouldn't have to answer this week is whether he has seen enough of Sam Bradford yet. He'll probably be asked, anyway, and he still won't answer, but the fact is that everyone has now seen enough of Bradford to know he is ready for the NFL regular season. And you can put the Green Bay Packers at the top of that list. They've really seen enough of him. Bradford, who didn't play in the opening exhibition game and was limited to just one drive in the second one, was on the field for the first three drives of the 39-26 win over the Packers on Saturday night in the third exhibition.

Chip Kelly once explained Kiko Alonso's style of playing linebacker as "Kiko see ball, Kiko tackle ball. " But Alonso has not seen the ball much this summer, and he has not done any tackling. That changes on Saturday, when the Eagles' inside linebacker finally plays his first game in an Eagles uniform against the Green Bay Packers. "I don't know how much I'm going to play," Alonso said, "but very excited. " Alonso, who the Eagles acquired for LeSean McCoy in March, missed almost two weeks with a concussion suffered on the third day of training camp.

The Eagles will continue to wait to show how they will handle the three-man inside-linebacker combination of Kiko Alonso, DeMeco Ryans, and Mychal Kendricks. All three missed the Eagles' 40-17 win on Saturday. They also sat out the preseason opener. They each practiced this past week, although they were partial participants. Alonso returned on Tuesday from a concussion that sidelined him almost two weeks. Ryans is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon last year, and Kendricks has been dealing with a hamstring injury, according to a league source.
