Action kicks-off in New Jersey, as Eli Manning and the Giants welcome Donovan McNabb and their long-time rival Redskins. Following a big win over the Eagles, Jay Cutler and the Bears put their 8-3 record on the line as they travel to Detroit to take on the Lions. Drew Brees and the Saints have quietly reeled off four-straight victories and look to make it five when they take on the Bengals. Coming off a last-second loss in Atlanta, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers try to rebound as they host the 49ers. The second half of FOX’s double dip gets started in Indianapolis, where Peyton Manning and the Colts host Jason Garrett’s Cowboys. Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Pam Oliver call the action from Lucas Oil Stadium. Matt Ryan and the Falcons pulled out a late victory over the Packers last week and this week, face Josh Freeman and the Bucs in Tampa. Sam Bradford’s rookie of the year campaign rolls on as the Rams are in Arizona to face the Cardinals. Also, the Panthers are in Seattle to battle the Seahawks.

JOHNSTON: CHICAGO SENT A MESSAGE ON A NATIONAL STAGE – The Bears are sporting an 8-3 record and lead the NFC North. However, they haven’t been viewed as serious contenders. NFL on FOX analyst Daryl Johnston feels that many have focused on their down moments and not given them credit for their achievements. “What a lot of people have in their memory banks was that disaster against the Giants,” said Johnston. “When you give up nine sacks in the first half, two of your quarterbacks get knocked out, your offensive line is in shambles, you have to think this team is inept. Now, they’re getting better but you’re not hearing a lot about it. The Bears get another chance on the national stage going against the most explosive offense in the league in the Eagles and they have a great day. I think Chicago sent a message to everybody.”

LONG: SURPRISED ANDRE JOHNSON AND CORTLAND FINNEGAN WEREN’T SUSPENDED FOLLOWING THEIR FIGHT LAST WEEK – Last week in Houston, Texans WR Andre Johnson and Titans DB Cortland Finnegan engaged in a fight during the game that resulted in helmets being ripped off and punches being thrown. The NFL didn’t suspend either player, only fining each $25,000. FOX NFL SUNDAY analyst Howie Long expected both players to face suspensions. “I was a little surprised,” said Long. “I think the NFL needs to get the fighting under control. Why do they restrict taunting in the endzone? Because it can lead to a Johnson-Finnegan situation kind of battle. I think the inconsistency in the penalties is part of the problem. It’s all over the place and subjective. It changes week to week.”
