Houston Texans (7-1) at Chicago Bears (7-1)
I’ve called Chicago the best team in the NFL on several occasions. It’s close, but they are the team I’d least want to play right now. Atlanta may be undefeated, but they’ve had a very easy schedule and aren’t blowing guys out like the Bears are, winning 5 of 8 by a touchdown or less, including games that should have been blowouts like home for Carolina, Oakland, and Dallas.
Chicago hasn’t had the toughest schedule either, but they are blowing teams out. Of their 7 wins, 5 have come by 10 or more (actually all 5 came by 16 or more). Of the two that didn’t, the outcome of only one was ever in down. They held a shutout against Detroit until 30 seconds left in the game when the Lions got a garbage time touchdown to make it 13-7 and a single digit win, but the outcome was never really in doubt.

This was system failure, maybe system overload for the NFL. You get a big game like Sunday night, Houston at Chicago, and hope to see statements made, questions answered.
We got statements, all right. When Houston linebacker Tim Dobbins cheap-shotted Jay Cutler -- in the officials' opinion -- by going helmet-to-helmet after Cutler had thrown a pass, Dobbins was allowed to stay...

The N.F.L. isn’t much safer is it? Roger Goodell was worried about how the league was going to address player safety in 2012 and stop the concussions. Well, in week 10 we have seen three star quarterbacks taken out of the games due to suffering Concussions. Michael Vick looked to hit his head on the turf and Smith looked to take a hit to the head and of course if you were watching...
