We've finally reached the point in the season where the annointed Game of the Week and other Weekend Watch contenders are almost guaranteed to be great tussles, purely because only the best teams are still playing football. Well, Friday and Saturday night lived up to their billing, with a handful of top games in the Midwest bracketing a Florida showdown and another between a Bay Area power and a surgining new contender.
