NFL MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: Bears beat Packers 20-17 to stay undefeated

The much-improved Jay Cutler threw for 221 yards, linebacker Brian Urlacher forced a key Green Bay fumble and Chicago became opportunistic by taking advantage of a team record-tying 17 penalties by the Packers, in a 20-17 win Monday night at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Green Bay wide receiver James Jones lost a fumble after being hit by Brian Urlacher at the Packers 46-yard line with just 2:18 left in the 4th quarter. A few plays later, Morgan Burnett was called for pass interference on Earl Bennett, which set up the winning 19-yard field goal by Robbie Gould with 4 seconds left.

The Bears, one of the most disappointing teams in 2009, are 3-0 and sitting by themselves in first place in the NFC North Division. The Packers fall from the unbeaten ranks and are 2-1.

Andy Reid changes mind; Vick will start for Eagles

Controversial quarterback Michael Vick will be the Philadelphia Eagles Number 1 signal-caller, according to head coach Andy Reid on Tuesday. The change-of-direction decision happened one day after Reid announced that Kevin Kolb would be regaining his job as Number 1 QB.

Vick is without a doubt, the best scrambling quarterback in NFL history, but he has demonstrated that he no longer has the run-first mentality like Kolb has.

Vick threw for 175 yards and one touchdown and ran for 103 yards in a 27-20 season-opening loss to Green Bay. He had 284 yards passing and two TD’s in a 35-32 win at Detroit on Sunday.

Kolb has missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick responded well in his place. Kolb has been cleared to play by the medical staff.

The start against the Lions was Vick’s first in nearly four years. He has completed 63.8 percent of his passes and has posted consecutive games with a passer rating above 100 for only the second time in his career.

The Bengals are glad that they signed Owens. With their other free-agent wide receiver Antonio Bryant nursing a troublesome left knee, the team would be hurting right now. It was quarterback Carson Palmer who urged Bengals management to sign the outspoken receiver.

The Bengals second star of the game was Carson Palmer. He was 15 0f 23 for 169 yards with two interceptions.

The third star of the game was rookie running back Cedric Peerman out of Virginia. He ran 12 times for 47 yards and had two touchdowns with runs of  1 and 22 yards.

Donovan McNabb replacement, Kevin Kolb went 11 of 17 for 126 yards. But the Eagles offense only managed three David Akers field goals of 40, 25 and 48 yards. Penalties and non-execution hurt them in the red zone.

Former NFL player and Georgia Tech star Nick Rogers has died in a on-car accident. He was 30.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office says that Rogers was killed about 1:30 a.m. Monday when his car hit a utility pole in College Park, a suburb of Atlanta.

Rogers had 16 1/2 sacks as a defensive end at Georgia Tech and was drafted in the sixth round in 2002.

Rogers, a 250-pound linebacker, spent four years in the NFL with Green Bay, Indianapolis, Miami and Minnesota.

He started 16 games in each of two seasons with the Vikings in 2002-2003. The next season he was with the Packers for 10 games and the Colts for one. His final NFL season was 2005, when he played three games with the Miami Dolphins.

Rogers most recently played for Colorado of the Arena Football League in 2008.

Kicker Jason Elam get his wish, retires as a Denver Bronco

compiled from staff, wire and Denver Broncos

Jason Elam had a chance to do something that most NFL players don’t have the opportunity to do, return to the team that originally drafted him and retire.

Elam signed a on-day contract earlier this week with the Denver Broncos before announcing his retirement, thus ending a 17-year NFL career.  The Pro Bowl kicker spent his first 15 years with the Broncos and 2008 and 2009 with the Atlanta Falcons who released him almost four months ago.

The Broncos drafted him in the third round in 1993. He never expected to be drafted by Denver because nobody from the organization brought him in for a workout.

The 40-year-old Elam, was a member of the Broncos two Super Bowl championship teams.

The three-time Pro Bowler finished his career ranked fifth in NFL history with 1,983 points and 436 field goals. He is the all-time leader with 16 seasons of 100 or more points.

Jason shares the NFL record with Tom Dempsey of New Orleans for the longest field goal of 63 years.

Elam says there are three most memorable kicks of his career:

* number 1 was a 51-yard field goal in the Broncos win over Green Bay, “we were the underdogs and it meant so much to the organization, the teams and the city,” he said.

* number 2 was most dramatic.  A 42-yard field goal as time ran out in a 15-14 win at Buffalo, “we didn’t have any timeouts left and I had missed a couple earlier,” he said.

* number 3 was the 63-yarder.

Elam said the rough times in Atlanta in 2010 told him it was time to retire.
