Weekend programming note

I’ll be reacquainting myself with the Metrodome this weekend for what could be the NFL’s game of the week. Either Minnesota or Cincinnati (or both) will walk out of the building with a playoff berth, and I’ll be there -- along with AFC North colleague James Walker -- to chronicle it.

We’ll have two FOBABs (Friends of the Black and Blue) at Soldier Field for the Green Bay-Chicago matchup. ESPN Chicago’s Jeff Dickerson and company will cover the Bears angle, while Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee will handle things from the Packers side.

I’ll have some thoughts posted on that contest, along with Detroit’s game at Baltimore, by the end of the evening.
