    Starts with Dallas @ Chicago - I think the Bears' win over Detroit last Thursday was probably fool's gold but we'll see. They're catching the Cowboys in the midst of a slump, so you never know.

    Baltimore @ Buffalo - This one could be a sneaky good game. I'm still not totally sold on Josh Allen but the Bills are taking what he offers at QB and making it work. They're only one game back of the Pats with the second game of their head to head series still to be played.

    San Fran @ New Orleans - Huge playoff implications here. The Saints have locked up the NFC South but the #1 seed is still very much in play for them and the Niners.

    KC @ NE - AFC Championship rematch. I can't believe this game didn't land on Sunday or Monday night. The Chiefs have all but locked up the AFC West. If they can go into Foxboro and beat the Pats it puts them back in the hunt for a top two seed and first round bye, and it potentially knocks the Pats into a tie with the Bills if Buffalo can get the upset W over Baltimore.

    SEA @ LA Rams - The Rams are showing signs of life again. Could be a shootout.

    NYG @ PHI - Maybe your last chance to see Eli Manning in action. Monday night thriller.

    Good games this week.

    Idk how the Bears are 6-6 (despite their terrible coach and QB) and idk how the Cowboys are 6-6 (prima donnas). But the Cowboys are a better team and win.

    New Orleans is 10-2 and you hardly hear anything about them. Sneaky sneaks.

    Yeah, the Saints have been very good very quietly. I guess it's probably easier to do when a team ran away with a division like they have. They could be the only team in the NFC South to finish with a record of at least 8-8.

    The Colts signed kicker Chase McLaughlin off waivers last night after Adam Vinatieri missed practice with a knee issue. Might finally be the end of the line for Vinny. I don't expect the Colts to carry two kickers on their active roster going into Sunday.

    Yeah, it's been bad. But kicking has been bad all around the league. They've worked out other guys throughout the season and didn't think that any of those guys would be an upgrade. I'm kind of hoping they just put him on IR and out of his misery.

    I like the Bears alternate helmets they’re wearing this week. The socks are a little wicked witch of the East for me, though.

    It's almost like targeting the short stuff and taking what's available can move the ball down the field for Chicago.

    Weird.

    Edit never mind.

    Hate to see the Bears win, but it's funny watching the Cowboys lose with Tory Aikman announcing.

    Where has this Bears team been? Reminds me of the Viking game. Don't know why. ;)

    Yes, only the Cowboys can outweigh my hate for the Bears

    Cowboys look done.

    I don't see the talent and haven't all season.

    The talking heads just wanted them to be relevant again.

    Bears look renewed but too little too late.

    The talent level is the least of their problems.

    Don't know if Jerry goes to road games but Garrett should be fired before he gets to the locker room.

    The scary thing is that Dallas still has the inside track on a home playoff game. There's a scenario out there where they could win the division at 6-10.

    Sounds like Roquan Smith done for the year. Bears with a lot of injuries this year.
