Game Preview: PHI-DAL

Christmas time is here, by golly, disapproval would be folly. Deck the halls with hunks of holly, fill the cup and don't say when. Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens, mix the punch, drag out the Dickens. As the playoff race a-thickens, the Eagles face T.O. again.

Game Previews: JAC-TEN, KC-SD

Run run run run, do do run run. Run run run run, do do run run. Run run run run, do do run run. (And occasionally, passes to the two best tight ends in the league.)

Game Previews: NO-ATL, CHI-NE

Twenty-one years ago in New Orleans, the Bears embarassed the Patriots in Super Bowl XX. Nine weeks ago in New Orleans, the Saints embarassed the Falcons as they made their emotional return to the Superdome. The second game may be more recent than the first, but neither one really tells us anything about what to expect when these four teams play each other on Sunday.

Before they prepare to face rock, scissors tries to cut apart paper one more time. Plus, a bonus NY Sun excerpt, Michael David Smith addresses the clock-management blunders in Philadelphia.
