Line moves: Bears opened minus-4.5, moved to minus-3.5, currently minus-4
Books says: "That was actually going back and forth because we didn't know about [Matt] Forte. It went down when we thought he wasn't playing and then it went back up. We know the public is going to be all over Chicago in this one, so I wouldn't be surprised if it gets even higher. The Seahawks are a classic wiseguy team, and I hope they take it. But they have not been embraced, and they have been a covering machine. There are just a couple of teams that, no matter what, the public is not picking up on. Because Seattle doesn't score a lot, it is one of those teams."
Bills QB Tarvaris Jackson is frustrated he’s not playing but he understands why he’s getting $3 million to stand around on game days; “It’s a cutthroat league and there really isn’t any loyalty, so it wasn’t like it was a big shock or anything like that,” Jackson said of the fact that he quickly fell out of favor in Seattle.
The Falcons avenged their lone blemish against the New Orleans Saints Thursday night, embarrassing their greatest rival, Drew Brees, with five interceptions in the 23-13 win as 3.5-point home favorites. The win also has the team in position to clinch the NFC South title and a playoff spot if Tampa Bay losses to Denver Sunday.
Yet, after all its efforts, Atlanta is not considered among the top contenders, according to the Super Bowl XLVII futures. The Falcons are priced as high as +700 behind Houston (+450), New England (+450), San Francisco (+500), and Denver (+550).
