Happy Friday the 13th Chicago Bears fans! The Patriots managed to hang on to beat the Jets last night.

The Seahawks announced plans to have undercover cops in 49ers gear in the stands to help ensure visiting fan safety. When you go to Soldier Field, that guy in the Peterson jersey you’re about do give a swirly to in the men’s room could just be a copper, so beware.
