NFC North Week 7/8 programming note

Based on my records, we've never in the history of the NFC North blog attempted a plan quite like what we're staring at now: Three games in five days.

Much like Evel Knievel, I'm lowering my head and pressing the accelerator to the floor. (Or something like that.)

I'll be at the Metrodome on Sunday for the Minnesota Vikings' clash with the Arizona Cardinals.

Then it's off to Chicago, where I'll be in place for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" matchup between the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.

Then it's back to NFC North blog headquarters for a quick regroup before returning Thursday night to the Metrodome for the Vikings' next game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

I feel fortunate that three games over five days will require only two short flights, but I still see this as an adventure of sorts. I've even created an Instagram account (kevinseifert_espn) to chronicle it, as long as I can figure out how to use it. So come along and let's have some midseason fun here in the Midwest.
