Thursday Night Football Open Thread

We’re recycling again because recycling is important, people!

This is now the open thread for you guys to discuss the (10-1) New Orleans Saints vs. the (6-5) Dallas Cowboys. Bears’ fans should probably all be rooting for the underdog Cowboys to knock off the NFC’s top seed, since a Saints’ loss would creep them closer to the 8-3 record of Chicago.

The Bears are currently in the three seed and they have a game coming up against the second seeded Rams. The Bears need to take care of business themselves, but they’ll also need some help to snag a first round bye that comes with being a one or two seed.

I’m taking the Saints to win in a rout, but since this is a TNF game, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Cowboys pulled off the upset.

The (5-5) Tennessee Titans take on the (7-3) Houston Texans in a game with AFC playoff implications tonight. The Texans have won seven straight games and sit atop the AFC South, while the Titans have been one of the most up and down teams in the league this year. A Tennessee win will tie them with the Colts and the Ravens at 6-5, and give us a three way logjam for the 6th seed.

This is your Open Thread (rated WCG-MA) for MNF to talk about what ever you’d like, but perhaps you’d like to talk about the class of the NFC North, the first place Chicago Bears.

In case you missed it, since it was way back on Thanksgiving, check out Patti’s post game recap on Chicago’s win against the Detroit Lions right here.
