What you need to know for Week 12 (1:00)


Bears excited for win over Packers

Bears LB Willie Young on how Chicago maintained focus when Aaron Rodgers appeared injured: "You know what, whether Rodgers hurt his wrist, sprained a toe, at the end of the day we know he's a competitor."


Eagles DC: Chip Kelly committed to Philly

"Absolutely," said Billy Davis of the embattled Eagles coach, around who rumors are swirling that he'll head back to college. "Not kind of committed. All-in committed. I know it. He is a fighter. He don't run." The Eagles have given up 45 points in back-to-back weeks.

Tom Brady as you've never seen him

When your dad jumps out of a leaf pile dressed as a turkey to surprise you, it's pretty cool. When your dad is Tom Brady, it's even cooler.


Norman: Dez's disrespect 'through roof'

Josh Norman said several of the younger Carolina defensive backs came to the locker room during warm-ups before Thursday's game against the Cowboys and told him Dez Bryant had called him out.


Favre tribute "unreal"

Max Bretos found the Packers tribute to Brett Favre -- which included Bart Starr -- touching: "If you didn't get goosebumps ... when Bart Starr came out, and they embraced there, I was choked up."

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton played in a pair of custom-made Dabbin' cleats and then wore these shoes to his postgame press conference. What do you think?

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

This is an amazing stat. The Panthers have allowed 45 rushing yards in the last two games combined. Stop the run and pressure the quarterback is the philosophy. It is working.

Steph Curry cheers on other undefeated

The Warriors star was more than a little pumped on Thanksgiving when Panthers LB Luke Kuechly took one back to the house against the Cowboys.


Cam Newton won't stop dancing

The Panthers QB rushed for another TD in Thursday's win over the Cowboys. So he busted out some more dance moves.


Tony Romo suffers left collarbone injury

The Cowboys QB suffered a left collarbone injury on the final play of the third quarter after a sack by Panthers LB Thomas Davis. Romo recently missed seven games after suffering a similar injury in Week 2.


'A special night, but different'

Brett Favre was honored to have his No. 4 retired by the Packers, but it was extra special to have Bart Starr join him for the ceremony.


Cutler breaks dubious streaks

Not only did Jay Cutler win his first game at Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving night, it was also the first time in 13 starts that he did not throw an interception against the Packers.

Packers fall at home to division rivals

The Packers have lost their last two home games, to NFC Central rivals Lions and Bears. The last time Green Bay lost to both teams at Lambeau in the same season was 1991 -- the year before Brett Favre joined the team.
