my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!"

dan: the colts defense and offensive line rank among the worst in the nfl, but the packers have not been able to take advantage of that today at lambeau field. the colts returned
the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and they have never trailed. the packers have a touchdown pass from aaron rodgers to jordy nelson and one field goal but the colts marched 96 yards for a touchdown right before halftime. green bay trails 24-10 in the third quarter. stephen watson and stephanie sutton will have coverage from lambeau tonight at 10:00. if the packers win, they are tied for the division lead today in minneapolis, blair walsh
field goal blocked, but the vikings took a three point lead with 23 seconds to play on this short td run by rhett ellison. however, the lions were able to force overtime, as matt prater hit from 58 yards out as time ran out. and in ot, matthew stafford to golden tate for a 28 yard touchdown the lions win 22-16, all five of their wins have been fourth quarter or overtime victories. minnesota has lost three in a row after a 5-and-0 start, detroit is 5 the hottest team in the nfl right now is the cowboys, who have won seven straight since dropping their opener to the giants. today in cleveland, rookie dak prescott tossed three more touchdown passes, the first to jason witten. the other rookie, ezekial elliott, ran for 2 scores. dallas wins 35--10 the browns remain the only winless team in the nfl. 62-3 -- that was the final in columbus last night, as ohio
big 10 championship game, if they win their final 3 games against illinois, purdue and minnesota. the new college football polls came out today, and the badgers moved up one spot in both, to seventh. alabama remains number 1, followed by michigan, clemson, washington, louisville, ohio state, and wisconsin. the great uw quarterback experiment continued yesterday in the 21-7 win at northwestern. alex hornibrook started and played most of the game, but pass f bart houston played sparingly, but led the badgers to 11 points. hornibrook said the reason houston played had nothing to do with his own struggles. >> no, we kind of had a planned before the game. >> it' workings? >> we're winning games, game.
so that is all that matters. dan: and the bucks try for their fourth straight win tonight in dallas, against a mavericks team that is searching for their first win of the season. last night, the bucks bombed the kings, 117-91, thanks to seven three pointers from mirza teletovic. however, giannis continues to shine, he nearly had a triple double and giannis is the only player in the nba currently to t is all that matters. lead his team in scoring, rebounding, assists, blocks and steals. doing it all for the bucks. there's on rest in green bay. [laughter] sheldon: thank y.
