It’s Your Dime: Celebrating halfway point, 8 p.m. CT

Updated: October 26, 2013

It’s Your Dime co-hosts Rourke Decker and Nate Down will break down Week 8 of the NFL regular season at 8 p.m. CT.

co-hosts Nate Koenig and Rourke Decker will break down the week’s games tonight at 8 p.m. CT/6 p.m. PT. Phone lines will be open for you to join in on the conversation. Give us a call at 347-857-3701 and make your voice heard.

The NFC North and NFC South have gotten more interesting in recent weeks, although depending on which team you follow, “interesting” might not be the outcome you hoped for. The Carolina Panthers are showing some spark — beating up the woeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-13 on Thursday Night Football — as they chase down the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. At the same time, the Green Bay Packers have leapfrogged the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions for the divisional lead.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears are one of six NFL teams on their bye this week.

One of the more interesting games on the slate will take place at Ford Field, where the Dallas Cowboys (4-3) will take on the Detroit Lions (4-3). The Lions clearly need a win to keep pace with the Packers and avoid falling behind the Bears.

The Packers (4-2) travel to Mall of America Field for a primetime match up against the Minnesota Vikings (1-5) in what looks to be a one-sided affair. Can the Packers walk away with one last victory at the Metrodome?

The Atlanta Falcons (2-4) travel to University of Phoenix Field to face the Arizona Cardinals (3-4). Alas, Falcons fans are already looking forward to next season. Is their team doing the same?

Finally, the cream of the crop, the New Orleans Saints (5-1), will play host to the Buffalo Bills (3-4). On paper, this looks like a sure victory for the Saints, but then again, the Bills are unpredictable at best.

As always, Rourke and Nate will be joined by Robert J. Russ, Water Cooler Sports resident fantasy football expert, to cover all the latest tips and strategies for the week ahead.

Don’t forget to pick up that phone and call in to the show at 347-857-3701. We want to hear from you!

Almost Human looks kind of cool, but you can trust FOX to fuck it up. They sabotage all their best shows. As soon as it gets good ratings, they shuffle it off to an obscure time slot and it withers.

Guys, I turned off my lamp before that 3rd and 1 when the false starts started to get called. This is all my fault.
