NFL weekend predictions: Falcons to check Chiefs’ postseason push

The NFC South-leading Falcons should have too much for Kansas City – and expect the 49ers to top the Bears thanks to Colin Kaepernick’s good recent form

Last week I messed up. A copy-and-paste error led to me failing to recognise fully half of the contestants who had correctly called all six games correctly in week 11, and for that I can only apologise. Well, that and belatedly seek to make amends. Congratulations to FatSamurai, Flattery2 and especially to Angchan – to whom this has somehow now happened twice in the same season. Sorry!

Five others matched their achievements in week 12, so please remain on your feet, ladies and gentlemen, as we offer bobajob86, DSizzle2013, FraserAH, onestepforward and Steve Mansfield an equally rapturous round of applause. And then plonk yourself down in your comfiest chair, and get to picking this weeks games.

How the Chicago Bears became NFL’s most untroubled losers

This season will be the ninth of the last 10 in which the Bears have missed the playoffs. And yet there seems little urgency to correct matters

Say this for the Chicago Bears: they lose with a consistent style seen nowhere else in the NFL. While the Cleveland Browns, the league’s standard bearer for failure, seemingly jump from quarterback to quarterback every week and get a new head coach most every season, the Bears fail with a clear plan in place. Never reactionary or quick to pull the trigger on a franchise-altering move, they simply plod ever forward. A steam ship churning towards a horizon that never has a sunrise. 

In the 24 years since Mike Ditka moved on from Chicago, the Bears have employed just five head coaches. Jay Cutler has been the team’s unquestioned starting quarterback since arriving via trade before the 2009 season – an NFL era so long past that the Browns were still deciding then between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson. Only Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan have started for the same team longer than Cutler among current QBs.

Mike Ditka to Colin Kaepernick: ‘Get the hell out’ if you don’t like America

Hall of Fame coach Mike Ditka has leveled blistering criticism at Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem, saying he has “no respect” for the San Francisco 49ers quarterback whose protest has sparked a national discussion over racial injustice, inspired dozens of NFL players to follow suit and landed him on the cover of Time magazine.

“I think it’s a problem, anybody who disrespects this country and the flag,” the longtime NFL coach said in a radio interview on KRLD-FM in Dallas. “If they don’t like the country, if they don’t like our flag, get the hell out. That’s what I think.
