LAKE FOREST | The Bears control their playoff destiny and their best defensive player appears to be on track to return this week.
CLEVELAND | The Bears were in a tailspin, their playoff hopes getting blown around as if caught in the brutal, whipping winds off Lake Michigan.

LAKE FOREST | Quarterback Jay Cutler looks just about ready to play for the Bears. For linebacker Lance Briggs, the wait might go on.
CHICAGO | Carlos Boozer scored 27 points, and the Bulls beat LeBron James and the Miami Heat 107-87 on Thursday night.
LOS ANGELES | While Derrick Rose headed home to Chicago for knee surgery, the Bulls began life without their superstar guard again.
Philip Rivers came through when the San Diego Chargers needed him most.
PORTLAND, Ore. | Not again. That must be what the Bulls are thinking after Derrick Rose limped off the court Friday night with another knee injury.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. | Quarterback Jay Cutler is out again and cornerback Charles Tillman won't be back unless the Bears make the playoffs. The way this season's going, that's no sure thing.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. | The Colts just keep digging themselves into early holes, then proving they know how to come back and win.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. | Given the path he followed, it would be perfectly understandable if Bears quarterback Josh McCown was feeling rejuvenated.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. | The Colts and Titans both feel embarrassed and disgusted with themselves, ready to move. They get to do so quickly.
Nine weeks into a season hardly is a time to select winners for the prestigious awards The Associated Press will hand out on the NFL Honors show the night before the Super Bowl. So much can (and will) change over the next two months.
INDIANAPOLIS | Andrew Luck delivered on his promise as the NFL's top draft pick. He took the Colts to the playoffs last season and has them in position to win a division title this year.
