Instant Replay: Green Bay's still the big cheese

The good, the bad and the ugly this week in the NFL

November 06, 2011

Eight down, eight to go.

Green Bay is halfway to going undefeated, and the way the Packers are playing, it'd be hard to bet against them. Thanks to their 45-38 win over San Diego on Sunday, the Packers have scored at least 24 points in eight straight games for the first time in franchise history. (Hear that, Brett Favre?)

And this was a road game against a team with a potent offense. Though in the grand scheme of things, it might be better for the Bears if Green Bay goes undefeated—until their clash in Week 15, that is. If the Packers are 14-0 entering that game, then disinterest on Green Bay's part might be the Bears' best hope.

OH, YES!

San Francisco is wearing teams down with running back Frank Gore, who topped 100 yards rushing for the fifth straight game Sunday—a franchise record. At 7-1, we're not sure what's scarier about the 49ers: their record or coach Jim Harbaugh's handshakes.

OH, NO!

With its win over Kansas City on Sunday, Miami (1-7) might have played its way out of the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. Indianapolis (0-9) definitely has the "upper hand" now. Oh, how those franchises have fallen.

UH-OH

Get ready for more Tim Tebow I-told-you-sos. The much-maligned Denver quarterback threw for two scores and ran for 117 yards in the Broncos' victory. Poor Kyle Orton.
