Attended Bengals-Bucs game today. They should offer refunds on that dog of a show. Neither team deserved to win.

Thank you, Atlanta, for beating the Seahawks' division rival, and still current leader (but now, only by one game).

Given the remaining schedule, its looking like Thursday night's game against the Bears might be a must win for the Cowboys. That unexpectedly good start this year is looking a little shaky.

JJ Watt (Texans) did it again yesterday. Two sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, an offensive touchdown, and more, all in one game. Of course that was against the Titans so that probably helped a lot. Looks like he'll have a good chance to make MVP this year.

Seems clear to me that the Texans are trying to make sure JJ get's a good shot for MVP by letting him play offense when there's a short yardage TD opportunity. (not that I blame them since he delivers)

Not sure how to interpret that game. Packers dominated statistically, but the score was close, and the Pats were within striking distance at the end.

Remaining schedule notwithstanding, the Broncos, Packers, Seahawks, Eagles, and Pats still look like the top tier to me...

If the Cowboys get beat by the Bears, they do not belong in the playoffs.

Fyi, I'm a long suffering Bears fan.

Had the Packers lost that would've been a heart breaking loss. Dominating the stats and that easy touchdown through that receiver's hands. There was a mention that winning put them as the #1 seed and if they lost would have put them at #6. Yet, seeding is no guarantee about advancing come playoff time.

The Pats had them measured for a comeback upset near the end. An entertaining game to watch.

I'm wondering if the Bears show up and make it a game or is this just a scrimmage, e.g., blowout for the Cowboys. Bears can still make the playoffs if they win out...dreaming here!

Cowboys defense the past few weeks has reverted to the defense most pundits thought it would be at the beginning of the season. I wouldn't be surprised with a Bears straight up win without the 3.5 point spread needed... And yes, no playoffs this year. If they win tonight, 8-8 is the ceiling I believe.

It is a lock. Once the cowboys put some points on the board the Bears will roll over and quit.

You scared me. I need lots of points from lots of Bears for my fantasy team. I didn't realize what time it was and thought you were quoting the current score.

Other than Vikings maybe they will lose the other 3 games because those teams have legitimate quarterbacks....so 6-10

Looks that way, heck maybe 5-11. The defense is not good, but the offense has been AWOL all year.

Well the Bears sure didn't quit. They made the second half really interesting.
