07:15 AM ET 11.05 | If it's up to Jay Cutler, he'll be under center soon. [Cutler], who was projected to miss a minimum of four weeks after suffering a groin injury in Week 7, plans to return as the team's starter this Sunday against the Detroit Lions, per a team source. There has been a sense of optimism in the past week that Cutler is healing more quickly than expected, and the team source said he will return to the practice field in preparation for the Lions. Barring a setback, he expects to start this Sunday in the key NFC North matchup at Soldier Field. If Cutler is successful in his comeback, it will mean he missed only one full start. The Bears had a bye for Week 8 before Monday night's game against the Packers. Cutler tore a groin muscle in the first half against the Redskins and was expected to miss a minimum of four weeks.

The NFC sure has some weak AZZZ teams that are going to win divisions.

Truth. Only teams in the NFC I would bet on in the post-season are San Fran and Seattle.

and I'm not sold on Seattle given they've had to scramble the past 2 weeks to get by the Rams and Bucs.

He saw the way McCown played against the Pack and said to himself, "Oh, oh!"

I'd add New Orleans to that list, but after losing to the Jets, maybe not.

I'm still not convinced that Rob Ryan fixed anything down there.

The truth is in advertising: The Giants vs Packers Nov. 17 game was " Flexed " out of the evening spot and replaced with the Broncos vs Chiefs.

Follow that add money. They know.
