Jerry Jones has all but spelled this out before, but it looks like Wade Phillips will be back with the Cowboys next season. It's the right decision.

• Along those same lines, it looks like Norv Turner will be back with the Chargers, too. Also, Norv and Wade will be coaching against each other in the Pro Bowl. The good news is that one of them will be getting another postseason win.

• Early lines on Sunday's games: (home teams in CAPS):

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS -8 vs. New York Jets
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS -4 vs. Minnesota Vikings

• Defensive tackle Dusty Dvoracek(notes), most recently of the Chicago Bears, was arrested for an impressive hat trick: public intoxication, assault and battery, and interference with official process. Bonus awesomeness: The establishment at which the arrest took place, a bar called Seven47 in Norman, Okla., taunted Dvoracek about it on Twitter. Gracias, Doc Saturday.

• Onion: Vick Calls Fumble In Cowboys Game 'The Worst Thing I've Ever Done'

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson got a big, stupid gift from Lil' Wayne. Apparently, they give award plaques to people who sell a lot of ringtones. Weezy F. Baby gave his 8 Million Ringtone plaque to Johnson. That says friendship.

• NBA fans, you probably are already aware of this, but the 500th podcast from The Basketball Jones is not something to be missed.

• Ratings for the mostly (completely, if you're me) abysmal divisional playoff games are, for some reason, up. New Orleans' drubbing of Arizona did 5 percent better than the same game in that time slot last year, and the Colts beating Baltimore did 18 percent better than the same game in that time slot last year. Amazing.
