Bears QB Justin Fields will sit out for the fourth straight game. Un-drafted rookie Tyson Bagent will step in hopes of delivering some much needed optimism to the beleaguered Bears team.'

What happens in Vegas... Toward the end of the 2022-2023 NFL season, the Las Vegas Raiders benched quarterback Derek Carr before trading him to the New Orleans Saints. Signing former Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo brought hope to Vegas, Jimmy's Super Bowl experience a bonus for long-suffered Raiders fans. Last week after the team's 3-5 start, owner Marc Davis fired head coach Josh McDaniels, fired GM Dave Ziegler and benched Garoppolo. Superstar wide receiver Davante Adams had previously expressed his disappointment In his production. The Raiders started rookie Aiden O'Connell in Week 9, and the team scored a 30-6 win over the NY Giants. That gave the Raiders a 4-5 record coming into Week 10. That doesn't bode well for Garoppolo fans, but gives the Raiders a much needed boost halfway into the season.

WAGs in the stands: Pop princess Taylor Swift's very public romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce made being a WAG (wives and girlfriends of athletes) cool again. Not since supermodel Gisele Bündchen first starting dating former husband Tom Brady has an athlete's partner garnered so much attention. But with Olympian Simone Biles in the stands (her husband Jonathan Owens plays for the Green Bay Packers) and Bills QB Josh Allen dating Pitch Perfect actress Hailee Steinfeld, what's happening in the stands this season is getting as much attention as the game on the field.

Good morning, Baltimore. Many hours of NFL sports broadcasts over recent years has been dedicated to arguing the talents (or lack thereof) of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. Lamar has always been a dynamic scrambler out of the pocket and this season is no different with Jackson scoring 440 rushing yards, the top for QBs in the NFL. Halfway through the 2023 NFL, Lamar is poised to have the best season of his career. The Ravens are 7-2 coming into Week 10 and MVP chants follow Lamar (again) at every turn. The Ravens might not get the hype of the Chiefs or Eagles, but they're establishing themselves as a Super Bowl contender and Lamar is already making a case to turn those chants into reality.
