TODAY'S THOUGHT

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

North Dakota moves up one this week to No. 10.

    North Dakota State defeated Eastern Washington 40-13 last Saturday in Cheney, WA.  The Bison will host Robert Morris this week.

    North Dakota downed Missouri State 34-0 in their home opener. The Fighting Hawks play at South Dakota on Saturday.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Week one of the NFL finishes tonight with a doubleheader of Monday Night Football.

    The Minnesota Vikings host the New Orleans Saints in the first game. Both teams feature quarterback playing on expiring contracts. The Saints' Drew Brees had a NFL-leading 5,208 yards passing last season, a record seventh time he's topped the league. Sam Bradford is coming off a career-best season for Minnesota, but the Vikings are waiting for the return of 2014 first-round draft pick Teddy Bridgewater, who is recovering from a severe knee injury. The game will also feature runningback Adrian Peterson's return to to Minnesota as a member of the Saints.
 
    The Broncos and Chargers complete the NFL's week one schedule tonight, with a late game in Denver. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is 3-9 in his last 12 games against Von Miller and the Broncos, with 18 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Rivers also has been sacked 37 times by Denver in that span, including 13 by Miller. Vance Joseph will be making his head coaching debut for the Broncos.

    MINNEAPOLIS - With 19 games to play, the Minnesota Twins are still in the thick of a playoff spot. The Twins hold the second American League wildcard spot, 3 1/2 behind the New York Yankees, who hold the first wildcard.  The Los Angeles Angels trail Minnestoa by one game, Kansas City and Texas by 2 1/2, Baltimore and Seattle by three and Tampa Bay by 3 1/2.

    The Twins have the day off today before beginning a a six-game homestand tomorrow.  The first two games are against San Diego followed by four against Toronto.  They then hit the road to play the Yankees in New York, at Detroit and at Cleveland before finishing up at home against Detroit.

    The last time Minnesota made the playoffs was 2010.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Indians can win their 19th straight game when they open a series against Detroit. Cleveland is currently two victories shy of the 2002 "Moneyball" Athletics for the longest streak since 1935.
 
     Throughout this franchise-record run, the Indians have maintained that it's not much of a discussion topic in the clubhouse. Manager Terry Francona says, "Maybe this thing gets more carried away with other people as opposed to us. We just play the game."

    The record is held by the 1916 New York Giants who won 26 regular season games in a row.

     TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says star running back David Johnson has a dislocated wrist that probably will require surgery. Arians says Johnson is seeking a second opinion. If the original prognosis is confirmed, the injury is the same as the one that sidelined rookie T.J. Logan in the preseason. While he didn't give a timetable for Johnson, Arians says Logan is expected to be sidelined eight to 12 weeks.
 
     Arians says the injury occurred late in the third quarter of Sunday's 35-23 loss at Detroit, when Johnson was hit hard after a catch at the Lions' 3-yard line. The next and final time Johnson touched the ball, he fumbled at the Cardinals' 10-yard line. The news was a little better on starting left tackle D.J. Humphries, out one to two weeks with a strained knee.
 
     - The Eagles beat Washington,30-17, Sunday, but it came at a cost. Starting cornerback Ronald Darby suffered a gruesome right ankle injury and was carted off the field. However, his prognosis appeared to brighten Monday. Reports say an MRI revealed no ligament damage, meaning Darby could return within six weeks. Meanwhile, kicker Caleb Sturgis also looks like he's going to miss several weeks. Sturgis injured his plant leg on the opening kickoff.
 
     - Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White will go on injured reserve for the third straight season after suffering a broken collarbone against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday. The seventh pick of the 2015 draft has played five games in three seasons. He spent last year on injured reserve after suffering a spiral fracture to his left fibula in the fourth game and missed all of 2015 with a stress fracture to his left tibia.
