Mentions of the Cutler/Webb physical confrontation
How dependent on that narrative will the broadcast be? Expect one, as it indeed was a story. But two would be gratuitous. Unless of course something happens again.

Over/Under: Austin -7.5 vs. Marshall

Mac – Marshall +7.5
Spiegs – Austin -7.5

False Starts on Bears
3 last week at home vs. Rams – now playing in one of loudest NFL Venues. Will the 90,000 or so fans cause more false starts on Bears? Will Cowboys ability to get to QB have effect on false starts?
