Yes, I know that the Packers-Saints writeup is next to Bears-Vikings. No, that's not our bad.
The text should say:
"Chicago's offense is second in the league in the first quarter and then is never better than 20th; Minnesota's defense is 17th in the league in the first quarter and then never drops below tenth.
