Weekend programming note

Posted by ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert

Whoa, Nelly! Hang on to your hats. I’m all grown up and leaving the nest.

That’s right. I’m heading to St. Louis this weekend to take in what Green Bay hopes is an everyone-take-a-deep-breath victory over the Rams. Somehow, I think Minnesota and Brett Favre will get by without me Sunday against San Francisco.

(But just to hedge our bets, NFC West colleague Mike Sando will be at the Metrodome to cover things from a 49ers perspective.)

I’ll bring you the usual pregame scene and in-game analysis from the Edward Jones Dome starting Sunday morning. We’ll do our best to keep up with Vikings-49ers and Detroit-Washington; all three games should conclude at about the same time.

Jeff Dickerson and a host of ESPN Chicago staffers will be in Seattle to cover Chicago’s game against the Seahawks. I’ll offer my own thoughts on that affair, and all the action around the division, by the end of the night.
