NFC North Week 10 programming note

Four-fectas don't get much easier than this.

(Fingers crossed/jinx tonic consumed.)

The geography of our Week 10 matchups all but required me to see each NFC North team in action. My plan is to cover Sunday's game at Soldier Field and then drive up to Lambeau Field in time for Monday Night Football.

By the time I return to NFC North blog headquarters Tuesday morning, we'll know if the Detroit Lions have a two-game lead over the Chicago Bears in the NFC wild-card race or if the Bears have pulled even. We'll also know if the Green Bay Packers are still undefeated, or if the Minnesota Vikings followed up on their plan to end talk of a 16-0 season.

They're all fun, but I think we can agree that Week 10 will be a bit more than that.
