:00:39.:00:42.

:00:43.:00:44.

with season defining games that will make, or in some cases,

:00:45.:00:47.

break playoff dreams. It is going to be hard. In the NFL

:00:48.:00:58.

it is hard every week. They know how to go out and get

:00:59.:01:10.

tough. You never give up. So many huge match-ups in week 17,

:01:11.:01:26.

here's a selection of what we'll be looking at on the show.

:01:27.:01:30.

A Washington win at home to the Giants would secure

:01:31.:01:32.

playoff football.. That win would mean a winner

:01:33.:01:37.

takes all in Detroit, with either the Lions or Packers

:01:38.:01:39.

missing out all together. Minus their leader at quarterback,

:01:40.:01:43.

Oakland went to Denver without Derek Carr looking

:01:44.:01:45.

for the win to secure the AFC West. Lose that game and Kansas had

:01:46.:01:50.

the chance to not only secure the division but also grab

:01:51.:01:53.

the second seed in the AFC. Here is the playoff picture

:01:54.:01:58.

heading into week 17. A quick reminder, to make

:01:59.:02:01.

the playoffs you need to win your division,

:02:02.:02:03.

or gain a wildcard spot by having The the Division winners

:02:04.:02:06.

are then seeded depending on their regular season record.

:02:07.:02:10.

So the six teams were wrapped up here, but for New England a win over

:02:11.:02:12.

Miami would secure home field advantage right through to

:02:13.:02:16.

the Super Bowl, should As mentioned Kansas City went

:02:17.:02:18.

into week 17 looking at that second seed and valuable bye week held

:02:19.:02:24.

by Oakland. In the NFC Dallas lead the way,

:02:25.:02:29.

but the second seed is still Seattle were hoping Atlanta might

:02:30.:02:32.

slip up and allow them the chance to avoid wildcard weekend

:02:33.:02:37.

and the valuable bye week that comes with being number 1 and 2 seed.

:02:38.:02:40.

Tampa Bay were still in the hunt but had better odds of winning

:02:41.:02:44.

the lottery than results falling into place!

:02:45.:02:47.

As mentioned, a Washington win and they're in the playoffs,

:02:48.:02:48.

which is where we'll The 17th and final round of the

:02:49.:03:09.

season. After weeks, it could not be more straightforward. Win and the

:03:10.:03:13.

Washington Redskins make the playoffs. Lose and they don't. The

:03:14.:03:18.

New York Times have already made the playoffs, but they have chosen their

:03:19.:03:23.

18, Giants that Kirk Cousins must pull down.

:03:24.:03:31.

Back up at the top of the screen. Here it is Perkins. In the 20, down

:03:32.:03:43.

at the 15th. In a game that the Washington Redskins need to get into

:03:44.:03:47.

the playoffs, they are watching the Giants move into scoring range. The

:03:48.:03:55.

Giants eventually stalled. They got the ball back in the second quarter.

:03:56.:04:03.

The Giants pick it up and there goes O'Dell back out at the 41. He is on

:04:04.:04:11.

Josh Norman -- Beckham. Second and sacks. There is Beckham. That will

:04:12.:04:25.

be a flag on a Norman and here we go again. Norman against Beckham, round

:04:26.:04:29.

three and this time the flag is on Norman. He has to be concerned, this

:04:30.:04:36.

has been all New York Giants. The Giants with their chance to extend

:04:37.:04:42.

their lead to 10-0. All of us, we don't know what to expect from the

:04:43.:04:45.

Giants but they are playing good ball. Touchdown. Impressive start

:04:46.:04:50.

for New York here against their divisional rivals. MARK CHAPMAN: He

:04:51.:04:56.

had a chance to get Washington on the board, but went wide from 57

:04:57.:05:04.

yards. The Giants are going for it. 4th down and two. Pass is tipped.

:05:05.:05:17.

Broken up by faster. -- Forster. They are all out there for the

:05:18.:05:22.

Giants. The only guy that we have not seen has been Jenkins on the

:05:23.:05:27.

defensive side. You take him out and replace them with Dominic Rogers.

:05:28.:05:37.

You think you can go after them. 147 on 3rd down. Nice move. There is

:05:38.:05:46.

life for the Redskins. Down in the 25. -- down inside the 25. Kirk

:05:47.:05:59.

Cousins, the receiver fell down and DRC with their kick back the other

:06:00.:06:05.

way. Harris lost its bidding and for Dominic Rogers, his bed kick of the

:06:06.:06:09.

year. Here it is Harris. Down he goes. He has caught seven balls all

:06:10.:06:17.

season long. Let's look and see if Rogers gets his foot down. MARK

:06:18.:06:24.

CHAPMAN: Washington forced a three and out and Hopkins finally put the

:06:25.:06:28.

Redskins on the board. They trailed by seven going into the fourth

:06:29.:06:34.

quarter. Here is Perkins with a career high. He stopped short here.

:06:35.:06:40.

Extra effort made it close. He is less than a yard short of the 1st

:06:41.:06:49.

down. 3rd down and 17. Khorasan looking for blocks. A flag at the

:06:50.:07:03.

end of it a lot of Pierre Garcon. He just went and got it. It looked like

:07:04.:07:07.

they were going to get land in columns with the late head. You see

:07:08.:07:13.

what has happened on this drive. -- hit. One on one. Touchdown!

:07:14.:07:27.

Washington! He has to go up for it and for a guy who is playing with a

:07:28.:07:31.

shoulder injury knowing that you will get parked, that is a heck of a

:07:32.:07:37.

job, securing the ball and giving the Redskins team a chance to tie

:07:38.:07:42.

this game up. Fourth 1st down of the half for the Giants. Hitting his

:07:43.:07:50.

stride. The first-year player out of Georgia is good for 44 yards. A

:07:51.:08:00.

simple goal route by King. Eli Manning is able to beat Blackman

:08:01.:08:03.

with the ball with a perfectly thrown pass. Check that MARK

:08:04.:08:10.

CHAPMAN: Robbie Gould give them the lead 13 minutes left. This may rest

:08:11.:08:21.

on Hopkins to tie it. The Redskins call time-out and they have given

:08:22.:08:25.

the Giants an opportunity to bring in some fresh legs. Kirk Cousins.

:08:26.:08:39.

Oppose it down. Intercepted by Dominic Rogers. And that could very

:08:40.:08:40.

well end of the year for Washington. Second interception, second turnover

:08:41.:08:57.

of the game as well and it is a back breaker for the Redskins. Devon is

:08:58.:09:00.

going to be the one to put the pressure. The pressure by him forces

:09:01.:09:06.

Cousins to slide to his left and tried to make a throw to Garcon

:09:07.:09:10.

without being able to plant his feet and lead him across the middle. He

:09:11.:09:16.

is open but Dominic Rogers in a trail technique and a ball thrown

:09:17.:09:21.

behind him, he is able to make a play, once again, 40 in the Redskins

:09:22.:09:28.

drive. The Giants do four or five players deep. Throws underneath.

:09:29.:09:39.

This is it. Flag is down and on the ladder and on the bounce, chairman

:09:40.:09:44.

Wayne will take it in for the touchdown and the call is Anna Lo --

:09:45.:09:51.

is illegible. This will stand. 19-10. There is a uniqueness and

:09:52.:10:01.

something special about this squad of guys. We will find a way to win

:10:02.:10:06.

the games. I wish it could be pretty at times but we are winning games

:10:07.:10:11.

and that is a good quality to have. This is in my first time dealing

:10:12.:10:15.

with this. Tough times do not last but tough people do. I will keep

:10:16.:10:20.

saying that until I retire. All I know is that it will give me an edge

:10:21.:10:25.

and I will go back to work this offseason and have

:10:26.:10:46.

a hunger that has always been there but when the season ends this way,

:10:47.:10:51.

it will be there and it will be strong. We will talk more about the

:10:52.:10:54.

Giants in a moment, but as far as Kirk Cousins is concerned, he will

:10:55.:10:56.

not like what happened in this game. He will not like that. Any part of

:10:57.:10:59.

it. Is his future on the line at Washington. No, it is supply and

:11:00.:11:02.

demand. He is one of the better quarterbacks in the lead -- in the

:11:03.:11:05.

league. He had an up and down year, but his ups were better than his

:11:06.:11:07.

downs. The Washington Redskins should build their team around him.

:11:08.:11:10.

Is it fair that there is speculation about his future and not that

:11:11.:11:13.

interception but the one late in the fourth quarter, if you look at some

:11:14.:11:17.

of the American media, it has been described as the past that could

:11:18.:11:22.

cost $28 million. If there were more options, yeah. There aren't really

:11:23.:11:26.

many options out there. You're better with what you have got and

:11:27.:11:30.

particularly a man who has not performed well. It is hard to find a

:11:31.:11:33.

good quarterback for the system that is in play and he can do that. No

:11:34.:11:45.

doubt about it. There are not enough football players to play that

:11:46.:11:47.

position who can play the way he is capable of. It is the subject we

:11:48.:11:50.

have touched on a bit, is Eli Manning a good quarterback at the

:11:51.:11:52.

moment. He is a great quarterback and he will always be. He has

:11:53.:11:55.

Championship pedigree and what he has working in his favour now is he

:11:56.:11:59.

does not have to carry the football team. The defense carries this

:12:00.:12:04.

football team. I agree, Eli is a good player, but it is the running

:12:05.:12:09.

game. Him allowing that running game and are getting going for it the

:12:10.:12:15.

offense is carrying his game. Eli is a great quarterback, but it is the

:12:16.:12:19.

context of how the season has gone. If you say they need to develop a

:12:20.:12:25.

running game, surely that should be done by now. You can't just develop

:12:26.:12:29.

a running game going into the playoffs six you want to have

:12:30.:12:32.

developed by the time you had the playoffs if you're able to hit the

:12:33.:12:35.

playoffs and what has happened with him is, they were able to win on

:12:36.:12:39.

defense and it gives them time to find a running back and Paul

:12:40.:12:43.

Perkins. The Giants had shown a commitment to running the football

:12:44.:12:48.

of last couple of weeks. They might add over 100 yards like they did in

:12:49.:12:51.

the past week but they will continue to do that and rely on their

:12:52.:12:59.

defense. Let's look at the other important fixtures in the NFC. We

:13:00.:13:05.

know that Dallas have wrapped up the number one seed. They gave Tony Romo

:13:06.:13:10.

and Erin and he has completed one drive with his second-quarter cameo.

:13:11.:13:17.

The best quarterback in Dallas! Selley combined well. -- Michael

:13:18.:13:26.

Philadelphia. Chip Kelly's final fling saw the 49ers score image

:13:27.:13:30.

touchdown to put clear water between them and Seattle. The Seahawks first

:13:31.:13:37.

of all fought back and then fought amongst themselves. We will talk

:13:38.:13:42.

more about that in a little while. The Falcons are the ones to watch as

:13:43.:13:46.

the divisional playoffs loom. They got the ball rolling in New Orleans

:13:47.:13:55.

with a free men dazzling touchdown. And Matt Ryan continues to be a

:13:56.:13:59.

prime candidate, for a touchdown throws through the first half. Julio

:14:00.:14:01.

Jones with that to Tapper. And wrapping up the NFC regular

:14:02.:14:05.

season were Green Bay at Detroit. Washington's loss made sure both

:14:06.:14:07.

teams were playoff bound, but there A rare moment of relief, both teams

:14:08.:14:24.

in the playoffs without having to score a point today, but relief sits

:14:25.:14:29.

uneasily in the NFL. There is the NFC North divisional title at stake,

:14:30.:14:34.

23 years have passed since the Lions once in won one and the Packers keen

:14:35.:14:39.

to keep their resurgent streak going. It is Aaron Rodgers against

:14:40.:14:44.

Matt Stafford, relief is not on the menu.

:14:45.:14:51.

Ten out three out of seven 430 the eyeing us Michael 39 yards.

:14:52.:15:05.

Golden Tate is able to make the catch. Julius Peppers slammed as he

:15:06.:15:16.

went to make the tackle. MARK CHAPMAN: missing a 39 yard field

:15:17.:15:26.

goal kept the scores level. COMMENTATOR: This is the longest

:15:27.:15:33.

streak of his illustrious career. Now, he is down in Nelson range.

:15:34.:15:39.

This is a guy with 11 red zone touchdowns. No one is even close. 14

:15:40.:15:48.

total touchdowns for number 87. Rodgers throws over the middle.

:15:49.:15:58.

Touchdown. He has had a heck of an impact rushing in this game. Thomas

:15:59.:16:05.

on the bench right now. Stafford airing it out and it's caught at the

:16:06.:16:13.

35-yard line by Jones. Second year guy out of Notre Dame. 3rd goal.

:16:14.:16:21.

Into the end zone. Detroit touchdown. Detroit have all of its

:16:22.:16:34.

time-outs. Zennor. Out of bounds at the 33-yard line. 1st down and goal.

:16:35.:16:42.

Zennor in the backfield has carried 16 times. Touchdown! Golden Tate

:16:43.:16:54.

slides to the inside. MARK CHAPMAN: The Packers put together a drive

:16:55.:17:01.

that enabled a field goal to cut the lead going into half-time. Play

:17:02.:17:09.

action. Nelson taking the ball to the 2-yard line. Going to roll to

:17:10.:17:20.

the right. Fire. Court. Touchdown. Davante Adams. He will get penalised

:17:21.:17:34.

for using the goalpost as a prop. 1st 16. Davante Adams in the

:17:35.:17:43.

backfield. The pass is holding, in Detroit territory by Geronimo

:17:44.:17:54.

Alison. Another catch here for 31. 3rd 9. Packers go five wide. Lyons

:17:55.:18:01.

Rushforth. There goes a Aaron Rodgers again. Looking to the

:18:02.:18:06.

outside again. Throwing and it is caught for a touchdown by Geronimo

:18:07.:18:12.

Alison. You can't stop him if he does that. What did he have the

:18:13.:18:18.

ball? Eight or nine seconds? This is why it is so difficult to defend.

:18:19.:18:24.

Plenty of time, scrambling around, buying time. Eventually one of these

:18:25.:18:28.

wide receivers uncover. They practice this all the time. People

:18:29.:18:36.

think, it's streetball. No. Every single day, when we give them the

:18:37.:18:40.

opportunity to go there, Aaron Rodgers, even when there is nobody

:18:41.:18:45.

else on the field will try and come up with plays like that. They are

:18:46.:18:54.

used to it. MARK CHAPMAN: lines possession, the lead down to six.

:18:55.:19:06.

COMMENTATOR: Montgomery in the backfield. Rodgers is going to take

:19:07.:19:15.

the snap. Rodgers takes it himself. He does everything. 1st down. It's

:19:16.:19:20.

easy to say what a call when it works but what a call. Stafford can

:19:21.:19:31.

only hope for another shot. Lions dancing around, showing blitz. Here

:19:32.:19:35.

they come. The pass to Adams in the corner of the end zone. Davante

:19:36.:19:44.

Adams working on Nevin Lawson. Aaron Rodgers has an even 300 yards on the

:19:45.:19:51.

evening. You saw the blitz. You know it is one-on-one coverage. Davante

:19:52.:19:56.

Adams, his 11th touchdown in a year. He's had a few drops but that

:19:57.:20:03.

balance along with Jordy Nelson and Cook getting back into form, you

:20:04.:20:12.

give that guy weapons and... 137, going down. Stafford fires and that

:20:13.:20:16.

is going to be Micah Hyde coming away with it in the end zone for a

:20:17.:20:28.

touchdown. Game on the line. Plays it perfectly. Arms around each other

:20:29.:20:35.

on both sides. Officials say play on. Matthew Stafford can't believe

:20:36.:20:39.

it. For all we talk about Aaron Rodgers and this Offense, what the

:20:40.:20:47.

Defense did when nobody left to play quarterback, one of the great shows

:20:48.:20:54.

of this year. Tremendous. Seven games, 18 touchdowns. The rating is

:20:55.:21:01.

spectacular. Stafford throws. A few hearts beating around the country.

:21:02.:21:07.

Anquan Boldin courted. That is overwhelming. -- he caught it. Kenya

:21:08.:21:17.

-- can you imagine another player like that catching a Hail Mary like

:21:18.:21:33.

that? You have Rodgers, Alison, Adams, the guys who are used to

:21:34.:21:37.

handling the ball. Montgomery back of the 25-yard line. That with

:21:38.:21:47.

Richard Rodgers will do it. Not quite as exciting as what Rodgers

:21:48.:21:53.

did last time but pretty good. The Green Bay Packers go to the playoffs

:21:54.:22:00.

for the eighth consecutive year. Giants go to Lambeau next week.

:22:01.:22:08.

We're in the playoffs and the goal is to win the Bowl. It's fun to win

:22:09.:22:13.

with these guys and to do it the way we did for the last six weeks. We've

:22:14.:22:17.

got a great football team playing really well. Were just happy to be

:22:18.:22:26.

back at Lambeau. It's very difficult to get into the playoffs. Where one

:22:27.:22:32.

of the 12 teams in it. So, if you're in, you got a chance.

:22:33.:22:37.

Congratulations to the Lions making it to the playoffs. A heck of a

:22:38.:22:43.

football game, it was fun to coach in it and we're very proud to win

:22:44.:22:45.

this title again. So the NFC road to Super Bowl 51

:22:46.:22:53.

will go through Dallas, who end the regular season as number

:22:54.:22:56.

1 seed and have that Matt Ryan's Atlanta Falcons

:22:57.:22:59.

are second seeds and join Dallas on the bye week ahead

:23:00.:23:03.

of wildcard weekend. Seattle's three wins from their last

:23:04.:23:07.

six games has seen them slip into third seed,

:23:08.:23:10.

they will host sixth seed Fourth seed Green Bay will host

:23:11.:23:12.

the New York Giants this coming wildcard weekend at a very cold

:23:13.:23:16.

Lambeau field! We will get onto Green Bay- New York

:23:17.:23:25.

in a moment. Let's start with Green Bay. You marvel at Aaron Rodgers and

:23:26.:23:32.

you see the stats, 18 touchdowns, no interceptions in seven games. You

:23:33.:23:35.

wonder if he's unstoppable at the moment. This guy is playing the best

:23:36.:23:42.

quarterback we've seen in the NFL in history. His stats is ridiculous. 18

:23:43.:23:48.

touchdowns, I've never heard of it before. And the turnaround is

:23:49.:23:54.

remarkable. Six weeks ago, they appeared to be an unhappy camper. He

:23:55.:24:00.

called out some team-mates. He was hobbling and limping. Now, he's like

:24:01.:24:05.

a Rolls-Royce. He never panicked because he believed in his skill

:24:06.:24:12.

set. This play is amazing. Watch his footwork. How quickly he sets up the

:24:13.:24:16.

throw again. You don't see quarterbacks do that. How would you

:24:17.:24:24.

play against him? Now? You just have to rush the past. You can't give him

:24:25.:24:29.

time to sit in the pocket and do all the incredible things he's able to

:24:30.:24:35.

do. You have to attack him, came contain him in the pocket. You have

:24:36.:24:41.

played against him and we have footage. You're smiling already.

:24:42.:24:45.

We've got footage of you play against him. This was the Giants in

:24:46.:24:52.

Lambeau. The couple of times they have gone there and beaten Green Bay

:24:53.:24:55.

and gone on to the Super Bowl. We are going to see you, missing him

:24:56.:25:04.

first time. You have two persist. Look at what I did! Some shots

:25:05.:25:10.

elsewhere of this game. Look at this. You were teachers pet there.

:25:11.:25:18.

You were the closest to Tom Coughlin. I wanted to be there where

:25:19.:25:25.

everybody could see me. With my helmet on, they don't see me too

:25:26.:25:30.

much. I wanted to be in shot. See it one more time. He grabs you. I was

:25:31.:25:42.

his favourite! Hello, son. What do you think it will be like for the

:25:43.:25:47.

Giants going to Lambeau given the history they have albeit with a very

:25:48.:25:53.

different roster. One guy who is very important is Eli. He can say,

:25:54.:25:59.

follow me and I will take you to the promised land. I like the Giants

:26:00.:26:03.

chances in this particular game. I can't explain how difficult what

:26:04.:26:06.

they did against the Washington Redskins was. They had nothing to

:26:07.:26:12.

play for and they defeated the Washington Redskins and I like their

:26:13.:26:16.

chances in this game. In tribute to the Giants going to Lambeau, the

:26:17.:26:20.

previous times they did that they went on to win the Super Bowl. Just

:26:21.:26:25.

to prove he is a Super Bowl winner, he has brought his two rings. Look

:26:26.:26:35.

at that! Bear a shiny! They don't do things by halves, I tell you.

:26:36.:26:43.

Atlanta, now second seeds. We discussed whether we had given them

:26:44.:26:46.

enough credit. They will be a real threat. It is good for them for two

:26:47.:26:54.

reasons. They have time to prepare and Julio Jones has time to heal.

:26:55.:27:01.

The only distraction will be their defensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan

:27:02.:27:08.

who is interviewing for jobs. Surely that kind of thing should wait till

:27:09.:27:14.

the season is over. Teams have the opportunity to hire" she is. You

:27:15.:27:19.

don't want to wait until the season is over. He would have missed his

:27:20.:27:23.

chance. He deserves the opportunity to compete for a head coaching job.

:27:24.:27:28.

You'd think that was a distraction if you were one of his players. This

:27:29.:27:34.

is definitely a distraction. He is making a decision for his future and

:27:35.:27:39.

he's going to put in time for that. What is he supposed to do? Wait for

:27:40.:27:44.

the job is to be filled. That's not fair to him. I don't agree with the

:27:45.:27:49.

process but it is taking away from the next game. The men who would

:27:50.:27:55.

have had their odd difference of opinion, what you think about the

:27:56.:28:00.

Seattle Seahawks players fighting amongst themselves? This is

:28:01.:28:09.

ridiculous. Read gets dejected and Clark decides to give him a piece of

:28:10.:28:14.

his mind. Ridiculous. They should have waited to get into the locker

:28:15.:28:18.

room to address their differences. You don't Bear your dirty laundry

:28:19.:28:24.

for everyone to see. This is part of the dysfunction of the Seattle

:28:25.:28:28.

Seahawks right now. If you know somebody that is hurting the team

:28:29.:28:32.

and letting them down, you need to keep it under control. You would be

:28:33.:28:35.

the first guy to grab somebody and say, calm down. But I wouldn't want

:28:36.:28:40.

to address it right there on the sideline. Clark had problems on his

:28:41.:28:46.

own. He's not the veteran on that football team that should be

:28:47.:28:50.

grabbing people by the scruff of the neck. He should chill out a bit. Do

:28:51.:28:56.

it in private. Not in public. Do it in private. Good luck after the

:28:57.:29:08.

show. This Friday we will take a look at the final round of the

:29:09.:29:09.

regular season. If you miss the show

:29:10.:29:11.

on Friday evening you can Tom Brady led the Patriots again.

:29:12.:29:31.

Welcome, I'm here. 77 yard catch and run. And a thunderous block from

:29:32.:29:40.

Floyd. He is likely to lead Miami into the playoffs. Houston against

:29:41.:29:50.

Tennessee. They had better days. Jones rumbled through for a

:29:51.:29:53.

touchdown and then a second-quarter concussion saw him exit the game.

:29:54.:30:01.

The ?72 million man didn't throw a touchdown. Santer fraud! You can't

:30:02.:30:19.

call him that. Pittsburgh's knocking for an overtime touchdown. Jones

:30:20.:30:27.

finding Hamilton to secure the game. Is that your own personal nickname?

:30:28.:30:32.

Over in the AFC West, Oakland and Kansas City both had

:30:33.:30:34.

an opportunity to not only secure the division but the valuable AFC

:30:35.:30:37.

second seed and the bye week that comes with it.

:30:38.:30:40.

For the loser playoff football is secured,

:30:41.:30:41.

but rather than a week off they'll be back the following weekend

:30:42.:30:44.

Both keen to secure the bye week, leaders Oakland had the tough trip

:30:45.:30:48.

to Denver whilst Kansas City headed to other divisional

:30:49.:30:51.

High drama. A classic western. The Oakland Raiders on their drive,

:30:52.:31:09.

majestic until this. It is broke! The broken leg of Derek Carr, to

:31:10.:31:13.

take the title they have to pick themselves up and take the high road

:31:14.:31:18.

to Denver, home of the still raining and most certainly smarting Broncos.

:31:19.:31:25.

Liz, and the offer of the division title and a home tie ahead is held

:31:26.:31:31.

out to the Kansas City Chiefs. Raiders and Chiefs, the double

:31:32.:31:32.

screenplay of the day. The Raiders trying to win to take

:31:33.:31:46.

the division for the first time since 2002. The Broncos are driving

:31:47.:31:52.

here. Into the end zone for the touchdown. Denver picking up six

:31:53.:32:00.

first downs after taken the opening kick-off. -- taking.

:32:01.:32:09.

So many injuries have hit these San Diego Chargers. And their line-up

:32:10.:32:18.

does not resemble anything close to what it looked like on opening day.

:32:19.:32:24.

The throw in. Nolan coming out of the outfield. He is put out of

:32:25.:32:34.

bounds. MARK CHAPMAN: Nine plays later, a field goal to give it the

:32:35.:32:39.

Chargers a three point lead. Five wide receivers on third and sixth.

:32:40.:32:49.

Smith. Down the near side line. Court at the 10-yard line. MARK

:32:50.:32:55.

CHAPMAN: For plays later, the Chief Scott on the board with a field

:32:56.:32:59.

goal. The game was tied at three all. Rivers throws. What a catch

:33:00.:33:09.

made. The 48, once again it is Hunter Henry. He had himself a

:33:10.:33:15.

healthier season than usual this year. Rivers. This side of the

:33:16.:33:24.

field. In 2pm zone, touchdown, Gates. He is tied with Tony

:33:25.:33:35.

Gonzalez. It will be interesting to see when the game ends. He breaks.

:33:36.:33:47.

And another tackle. Being chased by Malcolm Smith. He tries to punch the

:33:48.:33:49.

football out from behind. MARK CHAPMAN: That run lead to an

:33:50.:34:01.

McManus 22 yard field goal. The Raiders trailed by then. -- ten.

:34:02.:34:12.

Quick pass to the far side. Albert Wilson. To the 20, to the ten and

:34:13.:34:17.

tripped up before he got to the end zone. He was marked out about the

:34:18.:34:26.

5-yard line. Those short passes are nice idea. It turned into an 80 yard

:34:27.:34:37.

touchdown a week ago. This is Alex Smith. For the end zone, touchdown.

:34:38.:34:43.

Knife block in front of him by Travis Kelsey. Alex Smith. Rush and

:34:44.:34:50.

touchdown of the season for Alex. It is going to be one of those kinds of

:34:51.:35:01.

days on the scoreboard. Rivers. Intercepted. Picked off at midfield.

:35:02.:35:06.

Peters is out of bounds at the 30-yard line. He was under pressure

:35:07.:35:13.

in the pocket and Peters jumped the route. Smith, rolling, throwing,

:35:14.:35:21.

touchdown. Martin Spiers, the interception. The Kansas City Chiefs

:35:22.:35:29.

convert at the other end. Again, he is high. Going towards Crabtree and

:35:30.:35:44.

he got hit. It is out. 93. 15-yard penalty. Automatic. 1st down. It

:35:45.:35:49.

looks like it is going to be the football goes high. He has to lean

:35:50.:35:54.

back, he knows he is getting pressure. The head hit the ground. I

:35:55.:36:00.

Jo Scott word from the Oakland Raiders that Matt McGloin has a

:36:01.:36:06.

shoulder injury. His return is not likely. We will see his first action

:36:07.:36:14.

of the regular season. 3rd 18. Big penalty took the Broncos out of

:36:15.:36:20.

field goal range. He has got room. He has got an open field ahead. He

:36:21.:36:24.

has got to the end zone for the second time. MARK CHAPMAN: Just

:36:25.:36:32.

before half-time at Arrowhead, the Chiefs converted a field goal from

:36:33.:36:35.

Santos to extend their lead to ten points. 2nd 3. Smith throw in.

:36:36.:36:49.

Intercepted. Picked off on the far side of the field. Back to their 30.

:36:50.:37:01.

Thirdly, 20, touchdown, San Diego. No flags on the field.

:37:02.:37:07.

Simeon, throws it in there to Thomas. Into the red zone. Second in

:37:08.:37:21.

goal. Reaction to the end zone, it is a touchdown. Virgil Green.

:37:22.:37:32.

40-yard line. Alex Smith to throw. Wide open in the middle of the

:37:33.:37:39.

field. For a 1st down, a 20 yard pick-up. A reminder what is at stake

:37:40.:37:44.

with Oakland losing, Kansas City winning here, then Kansas City would

:37:45.:37:53.

move up to number two seed. They win the Championship.

:37:54.:37:59.

Touchdown. That looked really easy. Very familiar, the same path they

:38:00.:38:12.

did earlier with the roll-out. West goes up and out. The receivers to

:38:13.:38:19.

the right crash down, it is seldom easy the same play work twice in the

:38:20.:38:21.

same area of the field. First and ten. Kirk. Bodies around

:38:22.:38:38.

him. Beautiful pass. Cooper. Try to reach out for it. They say

:38:39.:38:44.

touchdown. Cooper. There are a couple of things. This was a big

:38:45.:38:49.

drop. Good field position and they took advantage. Connor Cook stepping

:38:50.:38:54.

up was the first thing and the Raiders love to make double moves.

:38:55.:38:59.

They do a lot of them during the game and that was some job by

:39:00.:39:04.

Cooper. How about the way he finds the pylon? It was a touchdown. Took

:39:05.:39:13.

a hand from Kirk. Tipped away by Simmons. You talked about how

:39:14.:39:22.

important the bye week was. It just got more important. Playing that one

:39:23.:39:32.

from in his own 10-yard line. Here he goes! Down the sideline for the

:39:33.:39:46.

touchdown. No flags! 95 yards for Hill. He also has a kick-off return.

:39:47.:39:56.

MARK CHAPMAN: At the top of the fourth quarter, the Chargers

:39:57.:39:59.

converted a field goal from Lambeau but the Chiefs would respond with

:40:00.:40:04.

another Santos 37 yard field goal to make it a 17 point lead as the game

:40:05.:40:10.

wound down. I wouldn't be surprised if the numbers keep growing and

:40:11.:40:19.

growing. Rivers, wide open at the goal-line, touchdown to Hunter

:40:20.:40:28.

Henry, the rookie tight end. Final score, 37-27. Kansas City wins the

:40:29.:40:35.

AFC West. They will have a bye week before resuming their pursuit of a

:40:36.:40:41.

Super Bowl. I tell you guys all the time, you get what you earn in this

:40:42.:40:46.

league. We did not do enough to earn a win tonight. Tough game, we did a

:40:47.:40:52.

nice job. We didn't do enough early enough to win. That is the way it

:40:53.:40:59.

goes in this league. For us, it was a big swing, to goal from

:41:00.:41:04.

potentially playing a road game in the wild card, to a buy and hosting

:41:05.:41:09.

a game. There was no in between, a big swing. Credit to our division.

:41:10.:41:17.

How well we have been playing. We took care at our end and got some

:41:18.:41:19.

help from Denver. So we finally have our 12 teams

:41:20.:41:22.

confirmed for the playoffs. Pittsburgh post-Miami. Oakland head

:41:23.:41:36.

to Houston. Dallas and Atlanta are keen observers of the wild card

:41:37.:41:41.

weekend. Seattle will take part in wild card we get hosting Detroit.

:41:42.:41:48.

Green they host the New York Giants at Lambeau. Apologies to Kansas City

:41:49.:41:52.

fans, I said it was at Arrowhead but it was in San Diego. Let's focus on

:41:53.:42:04.

Oakland. Noel Derek Carr, Matt McGloin was injured in this game and

:42:05.:42:08.

they had to go to their third ranked. The timing was awful.

:42:09.:42:16.

Terrible misfortune. This team had played good football for the entire

:42:17.:42:19.

year, lose their star quarterback and now they have to go in to the

:42:20.:42:24.

playoffs like that. Terrible luck. You don't know what to say. You feel

:42:25.:42:31.

so bad. It was a big hit. Right on his shoulder. He was starting to get

:42:32.:42:35.

wraps as a starter and now he is out any have to bring in somebody else.

:42:36.:42:43.

He did throw a touchdown but later on he did this. You can do anything

:42:44.:42:47.

about it. It's not like you can bring in someone else. They have a

:42:48.:42:52.

great offensive line but now that teams will stack the box. If I was

:42:53.:43:00.

going to be positive for the Raiders, do you at least give that

:43:01.:43:03.

those quarterbacks are bit of leeway in that they were taking an Denver

:43:04.:43:07.

and their defense and an emotional Denver as well. They knew that

:43:08.:43:14.

Kubiak was leaving, they wanted to go out on a high... You are trying.

:43:15.:43:19.

You know what a good quarterback does, but they don't! There is no

:43:20.:43:25.

way that you can take any positives out of this situation. These are two

:43:26.:43:31.

unproven quarterbacks. There is no way they can overcome that. You

:43:32.:43:35.

would hope there is not enough film out there on them. They don't know

:43:36.:43:39.

what they can really do well and they might get away with it for one

:43:40.:43:44.

game. I'm sure most people watching will note the situation with Gary

:43:45.:43:48.

Kubiak and why he is stepping down for health reasons. It is a very sad

:43:49.:43:54.

story. We know by being in the locker room how much time as coaches

:43:55.:43:59.

put in. I used to see throughout the season, cultures got sick, everyone

:44:00.:44:04.

had a cold, they put in a lot of hours and that wears down your body

:44:05.:44:08.

and his health has been impacted. He was a former player and all the

:44:09.:44:13.

players loved him, he rallied the troops. ... He had a great

:44:14.:44:18.

relationship with John Elway. They had everything going for themselves.

:44:19.:44:25.

We wish him well. He is the one who left through choice. The other

:44:26.:44:31.

coaches that went, it is called 'Black Monday'. It tends to be Black

:44:32.:44:39.

Sunday night! Maybe a couple of before that. 49ers, Chargers, Jags,

:44:40.:44:47.

Broncos, Rams, all looking for new head coaches. Alt of those jobs, if

:44:48.:44:57.

you were both to be head coach... I could see it, which one would you

:44:58.:45:03.

take on why? The Broncos. They have a great defense. You always want to

:45:04.:45:06.

take over a team with a good defense. They have everything in

:45:07.:45:12.

place, they just lost their head guy for health reasons. He has taken the

:45:13.:45:17.

Broncos job. You would say the same thing. Alt of the other ones

:45:18.:45:23.

available, where would you go? Los Angeles. Rams. Hollywood! I would go

:45:24.:45:29.

and enjoy the fun in the sun. You have a good young quarterback. He is

:45:30.:45:41.

young. They have to give him time to develop. You know you have at least

:45:42.:45:46.

two or three years. I am definitely going to LA. It started as a

:45:47.:45:55.

compliment. Over the course of the season, we have seen the Jason and

:45:56.:46:07.

Osi index. Osi had the Patriots, who put the Giants in at two and then

:46:08.:46:11.

went Cowboys and Raiders and then Seahawks. Let's see how he changed

:46:12.:46:16.

it going into the playoffs. He brought a plan to end. Steelers are

:46:17.:46:20.

up at four, Cowboys are in there as well. You drop the Seahawks and drop

:46:21.:46:26.

the Raiders out. The Seahawks are fighting each other. The Raiders

:46:27.:46:31.

with quarterback situation, they cannot be in my top five. I have the

:46:32.:46:36.

Steelers they have a really good offense. I like him in the playoffs.

:46:37.:46:46.

Let's look at Jason's index. You haven't changed yours as often.

:46:47.:46:53.

Patriots, Cowboys, Raiders, Giants, Steelers. That was it two weeks ago

:46:54.:46:57.

and you also dropped the Raiders completely out of it. You bumped the

:46:58.:47:01.

Steelers and the Giants up and you have brought the Chief said. I

:47:02.:47:05.

wanted the cheese to be in there. They were going to jump over the

:47:06.:47:09.

Raiders, but because of the injury, to Derek Carr... Did someone talk

:47:10.:47:16.

about the cheese? Are you tell me they are not exciting? They have

:47:17.:47:22.

exciting play. They are not exciting. Number two seeds. Neither

:47:23.:47:27.

of you have that the Packers and there. They won six games in a row

:47:28.:47:34.

that they are not better than any of those five teams. We have spent ages

:47:35.:47:43.

praising Aaron Rodgers. They have a lot of injuries and they give plays

:47:44.:47:50.

downfield. You know if Green Bay win, I'm going to have such fun.

:47:51.:47:55.

Don't forget the NFL Show this Friday at 11.55 BBC One.

:47:56.:47:58.

And don't forget you can catch the playoff action this

:47:59.:48:00.

Starting at 6pm there's coverage of Miami's visit to Pittsburgh

:48:01.:48:04.

followed by the Giants visit to Green Bay.

:48:05.:48:07.

So 32 becomes 12 as we head into the playoffs and of those 32

:48:08.:48:10.

teams, six have so far fired their head coach.

:48:11.:48:13.

See you Friday as we preview the road to Super Bowl 51.

:48:14.:48:21.

The numbers are slashed, 32 down to 12 and that doesn't, at the top four

:48:22.:48:34.

may rest. Eight teams must play, smaller numbers, higher intensity.

:48:35.:48:41.

The wild card is must take to the road could, to the homes of

:48:42.:48:46.

divisional winners. High stakes, high-quality, the giddy heights of

:48:47.:48:52.

football in the New Year. And it is going to go only higher. Only in the

:48:53.:48:57.

NFL. They want me to write and

:48:58.:49:03.

produce - for a boy band. Oh.

:49:04.:49:06.
