It's Game day, folks, and time to step up and take out a weak Washington Redskins team.
Wait, that's not right.
This may be the beginning of a pretty tough journey for our heroes. The Redskins come to Chicago with a 3-3 record and a strong shot at challenging for the NFC East title. Our Bears come in 4-2 with some nagging little injuries beginning to pile up, and an offensive line that just may be made out of clouds.
As always, or for at least the past 3 weeks, we'll have your quarterly game threads available for you. The first will be up a little before kickoff. In the mean-time, feel free to congregate here, discuss your food, your pre-game rituals, and check out the den that I put behind the jump for you.
Oh, and also, a big chunk of the nation should see this game. Here's the TV maps.
