Like football without a playoff

I mean, really - what's the point?

Thursday night football:

New Orleans @ Chicago (-3). As far as I can tell, Falcons fans, we're sorta rooting for Chicago here. Based on an absurdly long, unhealthy study of the remaining NFL schedule this week, we don't really have to worry about the NFC North. Between Chicago and Minnesota, one will win the division, one will miss the playoffs - so pulling for the Bears here seems to make sense, if only to push the Saints back and to diminish the Vikings (who we play next week). If that made any sense, you have studied this far too much as well. PICK: Chicago
