The weekend is here…and that means FOOTBALL! Here are the games that I think will be the ones to watch:

COLLEGE:

#15 TEXAS A&M (7-2) AT #1 ALABAMA (9-0) 1:30 P.M. on CBS

Johhny Football and his #1 ranked offense in the SEC will have a harder time this week against an Alabama defense that is second nationally in total defense and first in scoring. This is probably the last real obstacle standing between the Crimson Tide and the SEC title game.

NFL

Houston Texans (7-1) at Chicago Bears (7-1) 6:20 P.M. on NBC

The game of the week which could be a potential Super Bowl preview. The Texans’ offense scores 29.6 points per game behind Arian Foster and the league’s eighth-ranked rushing offense. Led by Brian Urlacher, the Bears’ defense has been lethal, allowing just 15 points per game, picking off a league-high 17 passes and registering 25 sacks. Quarterback Jay Cutler leads Chicago (7-1) against a Texans’ defense that ranks third-overall in the NFL and defends both the pass and the run well.
