NFC North Week 6 programming note

By Kevin Seifert

I made a decision a few weeks ago to pick up with the Detroit Lions when they returned from their bye, and I'm sticking with that plan despite a pair of other interesting Week 6 games in the NFC North. So here's how Sunday will work:

I'll be at Lincoln Financial Field to see if the Lions can right themselves against the Philadelphia Eagles after a 1-3 start and remain competitive in the division. They're already three games behind the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings in the win column, and the Vikings could make it four if they defeat the Washington Redskins in the late afternoon game.

I'll have full coverage of Lions-Eagles, and will also wrap up the Vikings' result in Washington, D.C. Then I'll put myself in position to catch as much of Sunday night's matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans as I can on television. A wrap-up post will appear on the blog shortly after the game ends.

I don't think I could have gone wrong on picking games this weekend. They're all important in their own ways, and we'll account for them accordingly.
