Picking the Bucs game seemed brilliant for three quarters. The Bears were coasting along, up 24-3 by mid-way in the 3rd ... then things got ugly. Somehow the D must have gone to sleep, because in just over a quarter, the Bucs scored four touchdowns (to the Bears' one), tying the game up at 31-31 at the end of regulation. Fortunately, the D woke up for overtime and was able to control field position to give Gould two shots at a winning FG (he missed the first one).
Ack. I'm still shaky from watching it. Anyway, with a Bears win and a Saints loss, The Bears now have home-field advantage straight through the NFC playoffs. Hopefully they'll get their Defensive act together (admittedly, it's hard to lose four Pro-Bowl players from your starting 11 and still maintain the same level of performance) in time for the post-season, so we don't end up like last year (getting home field only to get whupped at home in the first game).
