I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get the shakes. It’s what addicts might call withdrawal symptoms. It feels like a lifetime ago that the Bears played the Bucs in London. Now we have to go through yet another Sunday without Chicago Bears football while we wait for them to take out the Eagles on Monday Night Football. But all is not lost on Sunday. Here are some games to keep you interested and give you some rooting interest.
Seattle at Dallas
The Cowboys are one of those teams that will be contending with the Bears for a possible Wild Card spot while the Seahawks don’t pose as much of a threat and the Bears get to face them later this season. I’ll be pulling for the Seahawks.
Atlanta at Indianapolis
The Falcons are another team that could be vying for a Wild Card spot and hey, don’t we want the poor Colts to get off the schneid? Go Colts.
San Francisco at Washington
The Niners look like they’re going to clinch the NFC West by Thanksgiving and the Redskins don’t seem like a big Wild Card threat. I doubt I’ll look for this game unless it rolls across the Red Zone Channel. With any luck the Niners win (and I hate rooting for them) and Jim Harbaugh gives Mike Shanahan a slap, grab, handshake and the leathery Shanny puts Harbaugh over his knee to team him some manners.
New York at New England
The Patriots haven’t lost to an NFC team at home since like 2002. Here’s to hoping that streak continues for the Giants’ trip to Foxboro.
Green Bay at San Diego
Have to root against the Packers, it’s just that simple.
