Bears vs. Vikings

With the Packers in primetime, we’ll have another NFC North matchup on Sunday afternoon as the Bears head to Minnesota for a matchup with the Vikings.  Coverage begins at 11:30am with the kickoff set for noon on KFIZ.


No More Kickoffs?

With players safety becoming more of an issue in the NFL, the league office is kicking around an idea to get rid of the kickoff all together.  Here’s how It would work.  After a team scores, they would put the ball on their own 30 yard line and call it 4th and 15.  They could either go for it and try and keep possession or punt the ball away to the other team.

The Heisman Trophy will be awarded tonight at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York.  This year three finalists have been invited to the ceremony including; Notre Dame linebacker Manti T’eo, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, and Kansas State QB Collin Klein.
