Week 14 for NFL Ducks

If it is Week 14 in the NFL, then Detroit must be playing on Sunday night football. The Lions traveled to Green Bay to play the Packers on a very cold night but for former Duck quarterback Joey Harrington it was a long night standing on the sidelines. Meanwhile, one of Harrington's teammates at Oregon continued to add to his rushing yardage, while another made some catches for his team as the NFL season plays out with three more weeks to go.
