Join Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer and NFL fan extraordinaire Mark Thompson of Mark and Brian radio fame at 11:30 a.m. PST today for a live video chat on Week 9 in the NFL.
Sunday was a day for swing teams that have turned things around -- one way or another. The Indianapolis Colts, a year ago in the depths of post-Peyton Manning depression, have emerged behind their young quarterback. Andrew Luck has proved to be as good as many people thought, and he has the Colts at 5-3 after their 23-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Chicago, which went into a tailspin at the end of last season, has swung things around as well, and with Jay Cutler leading the way, the Bears are cruising along with a 7-1 record.
In Arizona, the Cardinals, after jumping off to a 4-0 start, are moving in the other direction fast. They've now lost five in a row.
