And the ugliest game of the day will probably be the Ravens/Bears where we'll get to see a team that looks like it's been running in a mud pit all season actually try to run in a mud pit* as Soldier Field may be a quagmire today. The Ravens will be playing against one of the eight teams starting a quarterback that they would have preferred to see on the sideline all season and that doesn't include all of the teams that will have started three different quarterbacks this year by the time the day is done (Browns, Packers, Bills, Vikings and Raiders). People are rightfully scoffing at Joe Flacco's $20M per year contract in light of his 77.3 quarterback rating but the fact is that there are eight teams that would trade a first round pick for him in a heartbeat. The Ravens would never consider it, however, because Ozzie Newsome spent the better part of ten years trapped in the Oort cloud** of awful quarterbacking and he's never going back.
