The Chicago Bears know what it's like to miss their starting quarterback. Trust me, they do. In case you missed it, the Bears depended 100% on their starting QB to lead them to victory against an admirable AFC opponent. Jimmy Clausen would not have been able to do that.
And tonight, we'll see what should have been a marquis matchup between Tony Romo and Drew Brees instead show up as a battle between Brandon Weeden and Luke McCown.
Both teams would have started out 2015 with hopes for a post-season playoff ticket, but as it's turning out, each team is panicking a little more from one week to the next.
Veteran head coaches Sean Payton and Jason Garrett hope to set their teams up for success, but realize it could be a long road to travel.
We'll start out with a battle of the deep south, NFC East versus NFC South.
