Who wins NFC East? NFC North?
It's all down to the final Sunday for the NFC East and NFC North. But more than that, the losers of these two big games -- Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears -- will see their seasons end. As if that's not enough, major quarterback intrigue surrounds the matchups; the Cowboys are waiting to see if Tony Romo will be healthy enough to play while the Packers on Thursday announced Aaron Rodgers will return. How will it all play out?

NFL Week 14 -- Cowboys at Bears
While the NFC West and NFC South might feature the conference's top contenders, the NFC East and NFC North aren't without heated divisional races. That's where these two teams come in: the 7-5 Dallas Cowboys, tied atop the East, and the 6-6 Chicago Bears, one game behind the Detroit Lions in the North. Which team will snag a critical win Monday night?
NFC North outlook still muddy
What an odd week for the NFC North. Perhaps the NFL's most competitive division title race stayed that way, but not thanks to great play from any of its contenders. The first-place Detroit Lions lost a turnover-riddled game at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- they of zero wins three weeks ago. The Chicago Bears lost 42-21 at the previously 4-6 St. Louis Rams. And the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers? They replaced struggling quarterback Scott Tolzien with Matt Flynn ... then proceeded to force a tie with the Minnesota Vikings. That leaves the first two at 6-5 and the last at 5-5-1. How will the rest of the season play out?
