NFL

Redskins at Bears 8 p.m. [NFL Network, Ch. 20]

If you have the NFL Network or Channel 20 at home, get comfortable. If you don't, find someone who does or get to a sports bar. There are two story lines. The more ordinary one is about two 5-7 teams with dimming playoff hopes trying to keep the embers from going out entirely. More compelling is the Redskins' attempting to recover from the loss of teammate Sean Taylor.

Awards

College Football Awards Show 7:30 p.m. [ESPN]

I'm not sure whether Billy Crystal is emceeing, but even if it's someone like Kenny Mayne, this is definitely worth watching. Finally, all those office pools will be decided when the winners of the Maxwell Award (best overall college player), the Bednarik Award (best defensive player), the Outland Trophy (best interior lineman) and a bunch other college football awards are announced. What's that? Your office doesn't run a pool for the Doak Walker Award? What's wrong with you people?
