First down

Kansas City at Indianapolis, 2:35 p.m., Ch. 5 • As both the Chiefs and Colts go overboard with the whole "Pressure? What pressure? There's no pressure on us" thing, I'm reminded of Ferris Bueller's insightful reflection on his bestie: "Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his [bum], in two weeks you'd have a diamond." It's not about pretending pressure doesn't exist, it's about who handles it best. Remember that, K.C. fans, every time Andy Reid inexplicably throws the challenge flag.

Second down

New Orleans at Philadelphia, 6:10 p.m., Ch. 5 • Whilst "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is still fresh in our memory, let us turn to the aforementioned Cameron for some words of wisdom on this barnburner: "I am not going to sit on my [bum] as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I'm going to take a stand. I'm going to defend it. Right or wrong, I'm going to defend it." We know the Saints can chuck it. And we know the Eagles can run it. So it's up to the defenses to not sit on their [bums]. Time to take a stand.
