Eagles at Giants
Bears at Lions
Cowboys at Redskins

all games with significant implications to the Vikes. Though, they dont have to be if MN simply wins today.

i have to think, when it comes to making the playoffs, the Bears are in the best spot.

I am amazed at all the media attention surrounding the Dallas-Washington game. Neither of these teams is all that good.

There is more at stake with that game. The winner takes the division, the loser likely goes home.

Plus the Redskins and Cowboys are like the two largest markets in football, in terms of fan support and likely ratings.

I wouldn't sleep on Detroit. Super frustrating season, lots of close losses. Last game, at home, wouldn't surprise me one bit to see them come out today hot and beat Chicago.

......then again it wouldn't surprise me if Stafford threw 5 INT and the Bears beat them by 25+ either.

other than DAL/WASH, will we know the outcome of these games before ours starts?

Yes. Chicago/Detroit and Philly/new York are at noon.

1. Top three media outlet in Dallas
2. Positive or Negative, Dallas is a polarizing team.
3. RGIII is arguably the most popular player in the NFL.
4. Arguably the biggest rivalry in football.
5. Game decides who wins the division.

My last-hour switch to Cutler in the 5000 is paying off!

CHI kicker Olindo Mare misses a 43 yard FG attempt.

They were talking on RedZone about how Phil Dawson is 6/6 from 50+. I instantly yelled at the TV "He ain't no Blair Walsh!"
