It’s been quite the week. On Sunday, we watched the Philadelphia Eagles survive a gut check a.k.a a spirited effort by the Indianapolis Colts. 14 fourth-quarter points helped lift the Birds to victory. Then, we began preparing for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and NCAA football’s rivalry weekend. If you’re like the rest of us, you probably also watched some World Cup action.

A 0-0 draw probably isn’t what you were looking forward to if you’ve been following Team USA, but hey, it’s better than a loss. We’ve finally recovered from a busy week.

Quinn appeared in 38 games for the Bears, so he’s very familiar with the Packers. Might Week 12 provide a breakout game? Stay tuned.
