What to watch today-Week 12

Alright everyone, how was your Thanksgiving? Our weekend has been long and lazy. Well, as lazy as you can be with two kids under 5. I feel like I am just now coming out of my food coma of Thursday night. This, along with trying to get my kids t-shirt line out the door for a trunk show next week has pushed football about as far to the back burner as possible. Next time, you guys, please remind me NOT to start a business (or two) before the kids turn two.
In any case, this is why I've grown to love football (maybe 'love' is too strong a word...'appreciate', maybe.) It's because football is always there from Fall until Winter and if you don't really pay attention one season, there's always next season. People are keeping track of endless stats--right now, as we speak!--so that I don't have to. It can be white noise in the background, perfect for a nap. Or it can be jumping-out-of-your-seat-exciting with everyone screaming and cheering. It's kind of awesome.
So let's figure out what's going on in today's games so we can go back to sitting by the fireplace being lazy. :)

The Atlanta Falcons take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this morning. Atlanta still has the best record in the league at 9-1, but some say they are starting to look shaky as six of their past seven games have been decided by a touchdown or fewer. The Bucs have been on a winning streak so this should be an exciting game. 

Over in the frozen part of the country, the Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings. This NFC north matchup should be great. Both teams have a winning record and with Bears QB Jay Cutler still possibly out with an injury, they'll have to rely on backup QB Jason Campbell. In any case, it will most likely be freezing and fun to watch.

In the afternoon, San Francisco takes on the New Orleans Saints. This is a rematch of last season's NFC divisional playoff game which was super exciting and intense. The Niners ended up winning that game 36-32 with nine seconds left. I'm sure the Saints are excited for another shot at SF. 

Tonight's game is the New York Giants vs the Green Bay Packers. Eli vs. Aaron. Cold vs. colder. This should be one of those tough, hard-hitting games that are fun to watch. 

Enjoy this Sunday, all! Next week I'll recap this week's games and the Thanksgiving games. Until next time!
