In case you have forgotten, the NFL Network has 13 weeks of Thursday night football this year. That kicks off this week with a good match-up between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. There are a lot of people that are in love with the Bears this season. I will be interested to watch Jay Cutler in this game. He hasn't lived up to his draft status to this point, but a win over the Packers in Green Bay would go a long way for his resume.
As far as the Packers are concerned, this is a huge game for them. They are already 0-1 in a tough division. Losing this game would drop them 0-2 with both losses being in the conference. That could come back to haunt them at tiebreaker time.
This post should also serve as your reminder to check your fantasy rosters before kickoff tonight. The open thread for this game will be up later.
