Aaron Rodgers thrives, Mitchell Trubisky falters as Packers trounce Bears

Mitchell Trubisky commits turnovers.

Aaron Rodgers throws touchdown passes.

It can’t be put much more simply than that. Rodgers, to no one’s surprise, outplayed Trubisky to ridiculous proportions in a quarterbacking mismatch. And the Green Bay Packers all but wrapped up the NFC North title by beating the Chicago Bears, 41-25, Sunday night at Lambeau Field in a game not nearly as close as the final score suggested.

The Packers led by as much as 31 points, at 41-10, on their way to improving their record to 8-3. They’re three games ahead of the second-place Bears, who are 5-6 and on a five-game losing streak, and Minnesota Vikings with five games remaining in the regular season.

Rodgers threw four touchdown passes to four different receivers in a 21-for-29, 211-yard passing show for Green Bay. His touchdown throws went to wide receivers Davante Adams and Allen Lazard and tight ends Marcedes

Is Pasta Healthy? Here’s What a Nutritionist Thinks

Pasta is not the enemy

For something so delicious, pasta sure does get a bad rap. Is it well deserved, or an outdated carb myth?

If, like me, you’re lucky enough to live in and around New York City, you won’t be short of Italian restaurant options. Yet, any time I suggest a visit to my favorite pasta restaurant, I always get the same reaction: raised eyebrows, shocked looks, and incredulous comments about pasta.

My clients are skeptical, too, always skipping pasta because it’s high in carbs, and they think it makes them gain weight. (Here’s why you can eat carbs and still be healthy.)

Frankly, it’s time to bust these myths, and put pasta back where it belongs: on the dinner table. Because the good news is that there are studies, like one published recently in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition, showing that pasta

Former NBAer Brevin Knight believes a healthy IT can help playoff teams

“I would love to see him get an opportunity,” former journeyman point guard Brevin Knight told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson about friend and fellow floor general Isaiah Thomas on a recent episode of the “Heavy Live With Scoop B Show.”

Thomas, who infamously shredded his hip playing for the Celtics in 2017, spent the next three seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets and Washington Wizards while trying to play on that injured hip, with little success.

During the pandemic, he underwent aggressive surgery to repair it, and has since felt he has returned to the former levels of burst that made him such a deadly player before his hip derailed his career.

“If he is feeling back to 100%, then I would like to see him go out in that way,” explained Knight. “I don’t want to see him go out playing hurt and going from

Florida man saves his dog from the jaws of an alligator; wildlife cam films the dramatic rescue

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Newly released footage shows a Florida man rescuing his dog from the grasp of an alligator, an unexpected moment captured on film by a project designed to monitor local wildlife.

The dramatic video shows the man jumping into waist-deep pond water after the alligator dragged the dog underwater. The man submerges his whole arm to bring the small dog to the surface, with the small alligator still latched on.

The dog yelps as the man struggles to free it from the gator’s grasp, loudly grunting from the strain. After about 12 seconds, the man succeeds in freeing his pet, and it scampers ashore.

The organization that captured the video says the man and his dog are OK.

The footage was shot as part of a project between the Florida Wildlife Federation and the fStop Foundation, called Sharing the Landscape. The project involves residents who
