The Randy Moss-to-the-Vikings is a done deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
That will make the Vikings that much more difficult for the Bears to beat --- twice.
I just went through the rest of the Bears schedule and see them rocketing to 6-2 before eventually falling between the 7-9 and 9-7 marks, which is right where I had them pegged at the beginning of the season. They have a favorable stretch right now with upcoming games against Carolina, Seattle, Washington and Buffalo.
After that, though, the schedule is a killer.
If Sunday night's game taught us anything, it's that the NFL truly is a week-to-week proposition. Therefore, I reserve the right to change my mind.
Dope it out yourself and post your thoughts below.
The Pats will get a third-round pick for Moss. I can't blame the Vikings for making the deal. Favre has wanted to play with Moss forever. I don't totally understand it from Bill Belichick's point of view, however. With that defense, the Pats are going to have to outscored teams in order to win later in the season and in the playoffs.
The Packers, meanwhile, missed out on their opportunity to replace injured Ryan Grant with Marshawn Lynch when the Bills dealt Lynch to the Seahawks for undisclosed picks. Instead of dealing for Lynch right away they waited to find out there wasn't a replacement on their current roster.
The indecision could also play a role in the division race.
