Egg nog tastes better when you cover. Offer your five picks of brilliance in the comments.
Bears -3.5 vs. Seahawks: It's a shame Chicago lost Jay Cutler and Matt Forte when it did; a healthy Bears team could beat anyone and might be the No. 2 or No. 3 club in the NFC. Cutler finally had his pocket-awareness working, and Mike Martz was being more proactive with the pass protection. This pick is based on two things: trust in the Chicago defense and distrust of Tarvaris Jackson on the road (68.1 rating, four TDs, seven picks). The last two Chicago losses were driven by several fluky elements, as you know.
Cowboys -7 at Buccaneers: Get out the postage and seal the envelope, the Bucs are mailing it in, perhaps revolting against the abrasive Raheem Morris. Getting Aqib Talib back is a boost for the hosts, but Dallas has four significant downfield threats — Talib can't mark everyone.

Hot News for QB Jay Cutler
For all his critics, Jay Cutler is one of the few quarterbacks acquired via trade in recent seasons to have any success, as personnel departments increasingly believe developing from within is far more successful.
Matt Forte doesn’t sound like he’ll be playing for the Bears again this year. Forte, who suffered a sprained MCL two weeks ago, won’t play today against the Seahawks and says he doesn’t think it’s realistic to think he could play next week against the Packers, either. “I’m nowhere near 100 percent,” Forte told ESPNChicago.com.…
Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte would love to get back on the field as soon as possible to try and help his team get into the playoffs. But in reality, he’s still got at least a more few weeks to go before that might happen. “Day to day, I just see how it feels,” [...]
With the holiday season right around the corner, one thing is certain. The playoffs are coming.
As the Chicago Bears finished their first five games at 2-3, they went on a 5-game win streak to go to 7-3 and own the top wildcard spot for the playoffs. A few hours after their most recent win over the San Diego Chargers though, Bears players, and fans got horrible news. Jay Cutler...
