I'll be honest. There aren't any sparklers on the NFC North's Week 9 schedule.
The Chicago Bears will play at the 3-5 Tennessee Titans. The Detroit Lions are headed to play the 1-6 Jacksonville Jaguars. The Minnesota Vikings will travel to play the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, where the Seahawks haven't lost since, I think, 1983.
So I'm headed to Lambeau Field this weekend to see if the Green Bay Packers can make it four victories in a row after a 2-3 start. The Arizona Cardinals have lost their past four games after a 4-0 start, and the Packers would love to get to 6-3 entering their bye.
I'll spend most of Sunday's game in our "Countdown Live" chat while also monitoring the happenings in Jacksonville, Fla., and Nashville, Tenn. We'll have full coverage from Green Bay, our friends at ESPNChicago will handle the Bears, and I'll have wrap-ups on the Lions and Vikings on the blog before the end of the day.
