The Bears, having played Thursday night, are off today — so you can decide who to back in the Packers/Vikings game. Obviously, Bears fans don’t root for the Packers and a Green Bay win would put them back in a first-place tie. But rooting for the old man in Minnesota isn’t easy, either…â†µ
Noon, Fox-32: NFL, Packers at Vikings. Just one last time, Brett.â†µ
Noon, CBS-2: NFL, Texans at Jets. Raise your hand if you knew when the season started that the Jets would have the AFC’s best record after 10 weeks.â†µ
3:15 p.m., CBS-2: NFL, Colts at Patriots. This could be a preview of a playoff matchup.â†µ
4 p.m., WPWR-Ch. 50: AHL, Monsters at Wolves. The Monsters are from Cleveland. (Insert joke here.)â†µ
5 p.m., NBA-TV: Hornets at Kings.â†µ
7 p.m., NBC-5: NFL, Giants at Eagles. The winner takes over first place in the NFC East. The loser gets a place in a very large wild-card scrum, with six games to go.
