NFC North Week 10 programming note

We're not above taking one for the team here on the NFC North blog.

There is little doubt that the game of the week, probably in the entire league, will include one of our teams Sunday night at Soldier Field. A pair of 7-1 division leaders -- the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans -- will match up in a primetime affair. Of course, our corporate cousins at ESPNChicago.com will have the game blanketed from a Bears perspective.

So to ensure maximum league-wide coverage, I'll be at the Metrodome for the early game between two NFC North teams. The Detroit Lions are hoping to push their record above .500 for the first time since Week 1, and the Minnesota Vikings are hoping to halt a two-game losing streak before their season is scuttled.

Regardless of where I am Sunday, I'd like to continue our recent practice of posting a slideshow Monday morning with your photographs of the weekend action. I also add my own Instagram submissions (kevinseifert_espn). The easiest thing to do is tweet them to me, whenever convenient to you, at our NFC North twitter account (@espn_nfcnblog). Be creative!
