I’ll be curious to see the dynamic between Harbaugh and Lovie Smith, two coaches who were competing against each other in the NFL not too long ago. Harbaugh was in San Francisco from 2011-14, while Lovie spent time in Chicago and Tampa Bay.

In the year that Harbaugh reached the Super Bowl, his 49ers crushed Chicago 32-7 at Candlestick Park. That was also the year Lovie would get fired, despite a 10-6 record.

In the meantime, though, there’s a pretty good slate of noon games, as well. Kick back and enjoy.
