Live from Soldier Field

CHICAGO -- I’m at Soldier Field on a perfect day for football. There’s not a cloud in the sky, the temperature at game time is supposed to be in the mid-70s and there’s barely a breeze in the Windy City.

I’ll be providing news, notes and observations throughout the game between the Falcons and the Bears and also watching the Buccaneers and Lions and Panthers and Cardinals.

I’ll be back in just about an hour with Atlanta’s inactives. We already know center Todd McClure and defensive tackle Corey Peters won’t be playing due to injuries. Peria Jerry is expected to start in Peters’ place and Joe Hawley is expected to start for McClure.
