Jeremy Bergman: Remember Week 6, when, like many Arizona residents, the aging Cardinals stumbled upon the Fountain of Youth? A long trip across the pond has since clarified the Cards’ mortality. With backup Drew Stanton under center in place of Carson Palmer (out with a broken arm) and the Rams (5-2) and Seahawks (4-2) out of reach in the NFC West, it’s time to rebuild and sell the franchise player. Maybe even to his hometown Minnesota Vikings, who already have two great receivers but could use a third to steal the NFC crown.
The Bears are not going to be Super Bowl contenders this year. Even making the playoffs for the first time since 2010 would seem to be a stretch. Though Chicago is only two games behind NFC North leader Minnesota, the Bears are the division’s basement dwellers at 3-4.
But the division is up for grabs following Aaron Rodgers’ injury. If Chicago’s defense can continue to provide Trubisky with both cover and a cushion, the Bears will give themselves a chance.
“We don’t necessarily think about it,” said cornerback Kyle Fuller, who was credited with one deflected pass and was about two yards shy of an interception. “We’re just going out there and trying to do our job and then (making Trubisky’s acclimation easier) comes with it.”
But the outcome of the game is not why Britt hated London.
“I hated everything about it,” Britt said. “I hated the flight. I hated us being there so long. I hated the flight back. I hated the food.”
To be fair to London, which is a lovely city that has embraced the NFL wholeheartedly, Britt apparently just isn’t a huge fan of international travel.
“Will I get out?” Britt said. “No, I won’t get out. When I leave the Website For Cheap Jerseys country I don’t leave the resort anyway. Last time my wife and daughter actually Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping took a trip to Paris. Had a worse time there. It’s a long story, but it was all bad.”
