Due to a classic Nor'easter slamming the the US Northeast two games have changed their start times. Baltimore/Chicago & Phily/San Fran have moved their games to 4:15et from 1:00et.

I know no one cares, but this really throws a monkey wrench in the local plans here.

Originally, where I live was going get the Philly/San Francisco game. Now with that game and the Chicago/Baltimore game moving to 4:15, this leave two games: Atlanta at NY Jets and Arizona at Detroit. I wonder what they'll do out here?

Are either of those games the "national" or number one game? If so you may get that one. Still, my guess is you get Arizona-Detroit. That's a game of "local" interest.

Well folks, it looks like the Colts are going to be the only unbeaten team left after tonight. Dallas is up 24-3 in the third quarter and seem to be moving the ball pretty much at will against the Saints' D.

C'mon Cowboys! For two reasons:

1. As a Falcons fan, I don't want the Saints to win.

2. As a fantasy owner of Adrian Peterson, I want Minnesota to play meaningful games in Weeks 15-17.

Yes Jigga, it's all about the fantasy team....

Drew Brees just threw a pass that was batted into the air at the line of scrimmage and then caught by himself. Is that considered a completed pass?

Yep. Brees completes a pass to Brees.

Saints lose.

Falcons are eliminated from playoff contention...but I could care less.

I am fully aware that this sounds irrational & filled with jealousy, but I do not care. Saints could win the Super Bowl, but my "give a damn" meter is at 0.

It's sad that it's come to this, but once again, I don't care. :P

Do you want the Saints to win a Super Bowl before the Falcons?

Of course not, I'd rather the Saints go 0-16 before the Falcons win a Super Bowl. :P

I hope this takes that Cowboys' "December curse" crap off SportsCenter and other NFL shows....

They'll need to beat the Redskins next week for that to happen. If they lose to the Skins, it starts all over again for these guys.

New Orleans losing tonight is no shock to me at all. Almost as overrated as this year's Vikings. Close calls to all those pathetic teams finally caught up with them.

I picked The Cowboys to win in the picks thread. The Saints were just due and the Cowboys were desperate. I think The Saints still lose one more game this season.

Only until they lose to Washington next week. That's when the "Wade needs to go" talk will also start up again.

Now that the Colts have the no competition left to challenge for 16-0 I think they will pursue hard for 16-0 and Jim Caldwell won't follow in the steps of Tony Dungy and rest players.

Nope. Pretty much all who were going to get the Philadelphia-San Francisco game will get the Atlanta-NY Jets game instead. The 'National' game is still Green Bay-Pittsburgh.

So just the Jets and Bills stand between the Colts and perfection (in regular season at least). I reckon that if Caldwell does rest players it should be on a rota basis. I think in the situation, perfection does mean something, but they are against two relatively weak sides.

Well as a Jet fan knowing our only chance at the playoffs is to win out and get some help, I sure hope Peyton & Company park their rear ends on the pine to rest/avoid possible injuries next week. I just don't think they will though.

And now it's time to shovel and try to make it out to the Meadowlands for the game vs. the Falcons, in here for the first time in 11 years (well, they've been here a lot including this season, just not to play the Jets) when we handed them one of their two losses in their 14-2 campaign. Then again, Chris Chandler was hurt and didn't start that game, and instead I got to see a 92-year old Steve DeBerg. Fun times.
