SNF: Will Cardinals See Red With Lindley at QB?

This week's Sunday Night Football column for NBC Sports looks at Ryan Lindley and playoff teams that have started three (or more!) quarterbacks in the regular season.

Bears Bench Cutler in Epic Fail (Not Fales)

Four months ago, Ray McDonald was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. The team made no move to punish the defensive end, allowing him to play as the legal process worked itself out. In November, the Santa Clara District Attorney's office declined to press charges due to insufficient evidence.

Now, McDonald is being investigated for possible sexual assault, and the 49ers aren't waiting for an arrest. They have cut ties with McDonald, with general manager Trent Baalke Baalke citing a "pattern of behavior" in the decision.
