Not much has gone right for either the San Antonio Spurs or the Utah Jazz through the first quarter of the NBA season, but both teams take a modicum of momentum into play for their dustup on Sunday afternoon at the AT&T Center in the Alamo City. The Spurs, who haven't won back-to-back games since winning four straight in an eight-day span Oct. 27-Nov. 3, just hope to play better than they did in a 34-point loss at Utah on Monday.

When the Chicago Bears play the Los Angeles Rams in chilly Soldier Field Sunday night, they will apparently do so with Mitchell Trubisky back under center. Trubisky has missed two games with a shoulder injury, but practiced fully all week and is not listed in the status section of Friday's injury report.
