Second big line movement in 24 hours. The line came out at Dallas -2.5 last evening. As the Eagles rolled over Chicago, the line swung five points to Eagles -2.5. Now news that Tony Romo is done for the year, awaiting probably another 7 point movement.

Your funny. :-) It should help them get TO the playoffs, but then again.....remember Minnesota.

LVH just reopened line @ Eagles -7.5. I have some real 'middling' opportunities here. :-) plus at 7.5 seems low. I expect that to grow.

Is it absolutely necessary to let an NFC East team into the playoffs? The winner of the division should recuse themselves out of pure shame.

Wait a minute now. If Eagles win, which they must to get in, they will be 10-6. That's respectable. I mean green bay may win their division with a record of 8-7-1.

I don't think it's gonna grow much beyond Dallas +7.5 ... Maybe 8.5 but not to 9. Dallas is still at home plus Romo wasn't really that good to begin with.

I just got an alert on my phone that says Jason Garrett says Romo is getting his back looked at but the rumors about him being out are just rumors.

If you have 4 teams beating each other up, they're going to have a lousy record compared to dominant teams in other divisions. This happens in the ACC all the time in basketball. I don't think the NFC North has been all that dominant of other divisions' teams this year, but the point of the playoff brackets is to determine how cross-division teams are against each other, and in-division teams are left behind. NFC North could easily produce a team that at least wins a game or two.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
