    Will either Indy or NE get caught in an obvious "trap" game?

    Also, the Bears absolutely need a win against the Lions to go 4-4 into their bye week and keep their playoff hopes alive.

    Here's the schedule:
    1 p.m. (EST)
    N.Y. Giants vs Miami
    Philadelphia at Minnesota
    Cleveland at St. Louis
    Indianapolis at Carolina
    Houston at San Diego
    New Orleans at San Francisco
    Oakland at Tennessee
    Pittsburgh at Cincinnati
    Detroit at Chicago

    4 p.m.
    Buffalo at N.Y. Jets
    Jacksonville at Tampa Bay
    Washington at New England

    Monday
    Green Bay at Denver

    The Bucs-Jaguars game has the potential to set offense back about five decades.

    The keys for the Bears are to get pressure on Kitna (the pass rush has been awful for the last month) and force turnovers and for Brian Urlacher to show up for a change. You'd think it would be impossible for a 260-pound linebacker to disappear, but 54's vanished since making that big INT against the Packers.

    I'll take the Rams as my upset pick.

    Nope, no Sunday night game, HB. World Series, I guess.

    No offense to you Doc, but I think The Lions will spring the upset on the Bears Sunday, even with their crappy pass defense.

    Also, I'm looking for the Rams to get into the win column against the Browns, who haven't won consecutive games since 2003, if I recall correctly.

    I guess that makes sense. I would have thought if the NFL didn't have a problem going head-to-head with Game 7 of the ALCS, it wouldn't think twice about going up against a World Series game.

    Usually, the NFL tries to avoid going against the World Series. They knew there would be a Game 4 of the World Series. No one knew if there would be a Game 7 of a League Championship Series all those months ago.

    That Monday night game is going to be a fun one to watch at the quarterback position with Jay Cutler and Brett Favre. There will be a lot of heaters being thrown in that game.

    Brett Favre is an old Jay Cutler.

    Indianapolis doesn't play New England this week?
    Someone better tell ESPN!

    That's been going on since Week 6

    Actually, it's been going on since Week 1 when both teams started with blowouts. The saying goes, "Cheaters never win." I guess NE is proving that theory wrong, and ESPN has quickly put that behind them as far as covering the Patriots go.
