    Philly-Green Bay and New England-Indy appear to be the only decent matchups.

    Also of note, it's a Steelers-free Sunday, as they face the Titans on Monday night.

    Would think two teams with a combined record of 15-3 in the Lions v. Cardinals bear mentioning as well.

    Not to mention some games with both teams having playoff aspirations; Bills/Dolphins, Chiefs/Seahawks and Bengals/Saints.

    With Stanton at QB, the Cardinals-Lions matchup loses some luster.

    Chiefs-Seahawks deserves a mention, though. Might not be pretty, but should be a good game.

    LTL will enjoy this.

    Yeah, it will be interesting to see what has to happen for people to think the Lions are for real.

    I tend to think the Packers will crush the Eagles, but I hope it actually produces the shootout people seem to expect every time someone plays the Packers.

    Good column. But that's exactly the tone he had before the game, in the taped interview with Costas. Said something about what a wonderful opportunity the last week had been to work through their problems. Probably sleep-deprivation stress and looniness.

    Might have to do a mercy firing there or Soldier Field will get U-G-L-Y.

    The Packers' defense plays great against the Bears, but that's about it.

    As for the Lions, the offense has been surprisingly inneffective until the end of games. Been a weird season in Detroit.

    Trestman makes Lovie look like Jim Harbaugh in the emotions department.

    @scottwalker After this past week, I still have more wins in WI than Jay Cutler. #GoPackGo

    I guess Illinois will go to Hillary in 2016. :D

    Rodgers has a 26-0 TD-INT rate in his last 10 home games.

    It's a good column.

    Firing a coach with multiple years left on his contract goes against everything the Bears have ever done, but I'm not sure what they're supposed to do here.

    I think their best option, as bad as it may be, is to get rid of Cutler, no matter how bad the cap hit is. I read somewhere that they can save themselves $16 million if they cut him before March, but then they'd still take a giant cap hit next season.
