NFL Week 14 Live: Bears, Patriots play in snow and wind; Giants, Vikings in Detroit

By Cindy Boren

There's rain/snow in Pittsburgh, rain in Jacksonville, Washington and New York, snow in Chicago and the Metrodome, which suddenly has been rendered an outdoor stadium. What's not to love about Week 14 fubball?

The best game, weather- and football-wise? It's in Chicago, where the New England Patriots play the Bears and snow is falling heavily. Which is good. Distracts from the gale-force winds. Bill Belichick is 9-0 in snow games. (Although, as Twointhebox blog points out, Al Davis would argue Belichick is 8-1. #tuckrule.)

And, thanks to the Metrodome roof collapse, much of America (well, the parts that live in Minnesota, New York and/or subscribe to the Sunday Ticket on DirecTV) will get another Monday night game...and another 24 hours of drama over whether Brett Favre will make his 298th start for the Vikings.

In Washington, Jay Glazer reports that Rex Grossman may come in against Tampa Bay if Donovan McNabb struggles. Could be, um, interesting.

Join me right after the Buccaneers-Redskins game for a quick chat. Let's go to the tweets.
