Another NFL Sunday has come and gone and The Stack is a little perplexed. Certain things happen and you just go “what was that?” Or “is this the same team that played last week?” Picks this week have been decent at 8-5 pending tonight’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. More on that in a bit. Of course they’re celebrating in San Francisco following the Giants World Series championship last night. We’ll have plenty on that on Tuesday. We’ll cover all of that and more so let’s get right to the reaction in “the stack” for today, Monday, October 29:
Chicago 23 Carolina 22
The Bears looked really bad for three quarters, but came through when it really mattered. The defense scored another touchdown. This team is the real deal. Tough loss for the Panthers. Cam Newton played better, but the Panthers could not make a stop in crunch time. That’s probably why they’re 1-6.
Cleveland 7 San Diego 6
