You're right. 8-8 will be tough with 2 games against the Lions, Dallas at home, Saints at home and Vikings away. Bears might not win another game.

Number 1 is playing number 2 on Sunday. Should be a great game the way these two teams are playing right now.

GO PATS

The NE at GB should be a very entertaining game to watch this coming weekend.

I'm not a betting man. But if I did, I'd choose NE.

The Packers are favorites by 3 which is normally given to the home team if both teams are even but I agree with you both offenses are rated first and 2nd but the PATS defense is rated higher and that should give them a slight advantage.

I'm choosing NE because of the better defense.

But, when Rodgers had the offense clicking... well, it's gonna be a good game to watch

In case you missed it either live or on replay, here's one the greatest catches ever made. It was made during last Sundays game between the Cowboys and Giants.

This may be the greatest catch but I think the catch by David Tyre of the Giants in Superbowl XLII was much more impressive and clutch as it allowed the Giants to prevent the PATS from making history by going 19-0. Much bigger stage.

I still have nightmares as a result of that catch

While there was more on the line, I can't agree with that catch being "much more impressive". Although, Manning was pretty impressive in escaping the sack and getting off that toss.

The talking heads were debating that the other day and settled instead on the Tyree catch as being the "luckiest catch" of all time.

I'm glad the Giants stink this year and will not in the playoffs as they're the ONLY team that scares the hell out of me if the PATS make it to the Super bowl.

They have the PATS number.

I would be very happy if the Patriots played and beat the Jints in the SB. Just as I was when the Red Sox beat the Yanks in the MLB playoffs in - 2004?

The playoff picture is becoming more focused this weekend. Lions won, keeping them in the NFC Wild Card hunt. I'm now hoping Cowboys lose. And, of course, Go Hawks vs. those 49ers (two other teams also in the NFC Wild Card hunt, if not vying for the NFC West Division title).

Bear are big disappointment to their fans and past alumni. How much can you blame coaching. Supposedly the talent level though is minute. Like if Belichek changed sidelines with Trestman who would win? OK, well that is a little extreme but these players are not ready to play week in and week out. Back up the truck and get rid of the front office.

Lucky for the PATS the Giants aren't in the NFC South, or they'd be in the think if the playoff hunt

That's an embarrassing division where the division winner may host a playoff game with a 6-10 record.

The whole Giant team couldn't carry Brady's jockstrap.
