It will be time for these two teams. He's going to fire towards the end

:00:08.:00:19.

zone! To the end zone, touchdown! Going deep! The wrecking Crew!

:00:20.:00:32.

Unbelievable! How did he do that? The Denver Broncos are world

:00:33.:00:38.

champions. Good evening and welcome to NFL this week, week two in our

:00:39.:00:44.

journey to the Super Bowl. I am joined by the former cornerback

:00:45.:00:47.

Jason Bell and former defensive linebacker Owen. The regular season

:00:48.:00:54.

stretches to 16 games so it is too early to start determining anything.

:00:55.:00:59.

Too early to jump the gun and claim a winner of this whole thing but it

:01:00.:01:04.

is good football and teams are equal right now. But going into week to

:01:05.:01:10.

nobody will want to be 0- two because only 12% of teens who have

:01:11.:01:14.

gone 0- two then make it to the playoffs. Absolutely. What do you

:01:15.:01:20.

mean absolutely? Did you know that statistic? I didn't, but what I do

:01:21.:01:25.

remember is being 0-2 and winning the Super Bowl. Yes, you were one of

:01:26.:01:33.

those 12%! But aside from that, is it hard to recover from that? It is

:01:34.:01:39.

hard to come back from that but the season is long and players know

:01:40.:01:47.

that. By the way, I heard that statistic on Redzone and didn't

:01:48.:01:51.

actually check it. We have a second show on Saturday night with all

:01:52.:01:54.

three of us including highlights of the Thursday night game between the

:01:55.:01:57.

Texans and the Patriots. So let's see how the Patriots got on when

:01:58.:02:04.

they hosted Miami Dolphins. No Tom Brady, he still suspended, all eyes

:02:05.:02:08.

were on his replacement Jimmy Graf low. But anybody can drop into this

:02:09.:02:11.

Patriots offense. COMMENTATOR: Second and drive,

:02:12.:02:29.

opening drive from the projects. Inside the five, to the end zone!

:02:30.:02:42.

Some of the criticism Garoppolo took was that he was not decisive with

:02:43.:02:52.

his decisions. Talking to Josh Brent Daniels, his performance last week

:02:53.:02:54.

was very decisive and we have seen that again. Over the middle, end

:02:55.:03:01.

zone, touchdown! Bennett, 20 yards, and the Patriots

:03:02.:03:16.

are on the board again. Under 13 and a half to play in the first half.

:03:17.:03:22.

Now Garoppolo on third and fourth. To the end zone for the touchdown!

:03:23.:03:32.

That young man, Garoppolo, has engineered touchdown drives of 75,

:03:33.:03:38.

75 and 70 six yards. He's five yards shy of firing over 200 and we are

:03:39.:03:47.

still in the first half. Ajayi in the backfield. Tannehill throws to

:03:48.:03:59.

the near side line. Lost the ball! And the Patriots are on it! Chris

:04:00.:04:07.

Long with the recovery! Makes the first defender miss as he's driving

:04:08.:04:11.

towards the 1st down and before his foot goes out of bounds the ball is

:04:12.:04:20.

stripped. Garoppolo under pressure. On the move, throws over the middle,

:04:21.:04:25.

got his man inside the 25-yard line. Malcolm Mitchell, the Rookie out of

:04:26.:04:34.

Georgia. He's feeling that one, Kiko Alonso on the hit. As he slides in

:04:35.:04:39.

the pocket he is able to escape. He avoids one, steps up, gets to the

:04:40.:04:45.

outside, Kiko Alonso 47. The pressure landed on his right

:04:46.:04:49.

shoulder. Not only his body weight but he had Alonso's body weight

:04:50.:04:54.

falling on my right shoulder. They are going to look at him and the

:04:55.:05:02.

back-up quarterback Jacobi Bridge starts to get loose. Watch all the

:05:03.:05:11.

pressure go on my right shoulder. A lot of pressure. You can see the

:05:12.:05:18.

amount of pain Jimmy Garoppolo is under. He will head down the tunnel

:05:19.:05:23.

and get some x-rays, I am sure STUDIO: Garoppolo's shoulder injury

:05:24.:05:30.

meant that he set out the rest of the match. There was better news

:05:31.:05:35.

when compound ski scored a field goal, but then the Dolphin scored

:05:36.:05:39.

one of their own from francs to make it 24-3 heading into half-time.

:05:40.:05:48.

STUDIO: Today we will talk about my favourite thing, pressuring a

:05:49.:05:51.

quarterback, and we will see somebody who is not accustomed to

:05:52.:05:56.

doing it. At third and 91 the front four giving pressure but watch what

:05:57.:06:00.

Miami Dolphins will do. They will bring pressure here and I want you

:06:01.:06:04.

to pay really special attention to the middle linebacker, Alonso,

:06:05.:06:10.

watched the special play he makes. Initially his job is to check and

:06:11.:06:14.

see whoever comes across the middle. He sees this man take that guy and

:06:15.:06:18.

now watch what he does here, like a heat-seeking missile, he's going to

:06:19.:06:24.

come straight to Garoppolo and watch him deliver this terrific hit to the

:06:25.:06:31.

quarterback, bang, knocked him down. Look at this! Don't pass go, do not

:06:32.:06:37.

collect $200, go straight down. And that was an incredible play by this

:06:38.:06:43.

case. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a court aback get hit like

:06:44.:06:49.

that, other than that Ella -- nothing makes me happier than seeing

:06:50.:06:58.

a quarterback get hit like that. On 1st down, Ajayi, lost the football,

:06:59.:07:06.

and followed on by the Patriots! Flowers. And the young quarterback

:07:07.:07:15.

Jacoby Brissett goes back to work. Play faked to him. Wide open on the

:07:16.:07:24.

far side, midfield and the races. Down the 30-yard line. 1st goal.

:07:25.:07:42.

Blount, right side, touchdown! Jacoby Brissett engineers the

:07:43.:07:47.

touchdown drive. All that optimism the Miami Dolphins had coming out of

:07:48.:07:51.

the locker room, they are now at 31-3. On 2nd 4, Tannehill for the

:07:52.:08:02.

end zone, got an open, touchdown! Kenny Stills, who dropped a short

:08:03.:08:05.

touchdown he week ago, holds onto this one on the 24 yards. Exactly

:08:06.:08:15.

what they needed. Had the turnover, that time able to finish the drive,

:08:16.:08:20.

get seven on the board for the first time today. We saw Adam Yates quite

:08:21.:08:30.

animated on the sideline, Tannehill looking, throwing, end zone, did you

:08:31.:08:36.

catch it? He caught it! Jordan Cameron, touchdown. It just depends

:08:37.:08:44.

what you think of their return team, if you think they are too good, you

:08:45.:08:51.

click through the end zone. Blount with a hurdle and extra yardage! Out

:08:52.:08:56.

to the 45-yard line. The size of Blount to get up, that's incredibly

:08:57.:09:02.

athletic, a man that size, and that was not a little hurdle, it was

:09:03.:09:14.

extra high. On 2nd 15, deep drop my lost the football! It is loose,

:09:15.:09:21.

who's got it? Still loose! Looks like it was covered by the Patriots

:09:22.:09:25.

back at the 40-yard line, James White diving on the ball. Second and

:09:26.:09:35.

fourth. Inside the five, looking for the end zone. Touchdown! Canyon

:09:36.:09:43.

Drake, the rookie out of Alabama. Got to tip your hat to Ryan

:09:44.:09:49.

Tannehill, 20 out of 21, two touchdowns and the one incompletion

:09:50.:09:53.

was the screen pass he saw developing and threw it into the

:09:54.:09:57.

dirt. I don't think you can do any better and he's got to keep it

:09:58.:10:01.

going. STUDIO: On the following Patriots possession they missed a

:10:02.:10:04.

field goal to give the Dolphin is a chance to tie the game late in the

:10:05.:10:11.

fourth quarter. COMMENTATOR: 2nd 10. Tannehill with time, going to

:10:12.:10:23.

pull it down and run, 45, 40, keeps his head up, inside the 35-yard

:10:24.:10:30.

line. 4th 5. Tannehill going for it all, to the end zone, Parker, and

:10:31.:10:39.

it is intercepted! Rough way for things to end in the second half for

:10:40.:10:44.

Ryan Tannehill. Strange to say but the huge advantage New England had

:10:45.:10:47.

in the first half, I think they are feeling like they survived. Good to

:10:48.:10:53.

win at home. I thought our team did a lot of things well today. The

:10:54.:11:00.

momentum shift at the end, start of the fourth quarter. In the end we

:11:01.:11:04.

made enough plays to win, just barely. But we'll take it. And we'll

:11:05.:11:10.

move on. Obviously a quick week here for Houston coming up, another real

:11:11.:11:17.

good football team. I think we got a lot of good performances from a lot

:11:18.:11:21.

of different people, offensive line, running game, receivers, both

:11:22.:11:24.

quarterbacks. The first and most important thing to say is that of a

:11:25.:11:30.

chocolate spreads are available. You can't just go around mentioning one

:11:31.:11:37.

brand. Other brands are available. As much as you like seeing a

:11:38.:11:41.

quarterback get hit, you must have some sympathy for Garoppolo? Yes, he

:11:42.:11:48.

was having an outstanding game, and dissecting the Miami Dolphins. To

:11:49.:11:52.

get hurt when you are having the game of your life, you have to feel

:11:53.:11:56.

sympathy. Jacoby Brissett comes in, and when you watch what he did when

:11:57.:12:02.

he came on, you can see that they had to reduce what the offense did

:12:03.:12:06.

to accommodate him? The first thing they had to do was let him get the

:12:07.:12:10.

ball out quick, get comfortable. Short, quick throws where he does

:12:11.:12:15.

not have to think a lot, get warmed up. People might understand that

:12:16.:12:19.

you'd have two shorter than that when he came on in this game, given

:12:20.:12:22.

that they play on Thursday do they have enough time to expand anything

:12:23.:12:26.

with him before the game with the Texans? They can't have enough time,

:12:27.:12:31.

only three days to prepare for this. Jacoby Brissett they were probably

:12:32.:12:35.

not expecting to play this year and now he has to go in at short notice

:12:36.:12:40.

but if anybody can get this done it will be Bill Belichick. That's what

:12:41.:12:44.

I was going to expand on with you. As you pointed out last week about

:12:45.:12:50.

his coaching abilities, he'll be able to simplify that playbook for

:12:51.:12:53.

Jacoby Brissett. And he always did a good job of doing the best thing for

:12:54.:12:57.

his team versus that opponent. And this is no other thing that he

:12:58.:13:02.

hasn't seen before, you'll plug him in and play. I guarantee he'll have

:13:03.:13:07.

a specific package, specific plays designed for this guy to execute and

:13:08.:13:12.

make him successful in this game. Nobody wants a player to get hurt

:13:13.:13:15.

but the ultimate for a defense must be to get the quarterback out of the

:13:16.:13:21.

game because he is the side's lead. You are trying to win so when you

:13:22.:13:25.

see the other team's quarterback go out you feel you have an advantage.

:13:26.:13:29.

Miami thought they had an advantage and try to get themselves back in.

:13:30.:13:33.

You never want to see anybody hurt but you want them out of your game.

:13:34.:13:38.

The quarterback is the head of the snake, if you chop off the head, the

:13:39.:13:40.

body falls. You know what it's like to hit a

:13:41.:13:47.

quarterback. I'm going to be kind to both of you, because you're on this

:13:48.:13:51.

list as well, remarkably! LAUGHTER

:13:52.:13:57.

Sacking a quarterback... You had other strengths, Jason! Look at

:13:58.:14:05.

that! We almost got fined for that! Can you described the feeling of

:14:06.:14:14.

hitting a quarterback? An described Bull! The quarterback is so pretty,

:14:15.:14:18.

so cute, they get paid the most money... Any time you get a chance

:14:19.:14:23.

to take a shot at a quarterback, you have to take it! -- indescribable!

:14:24.:14:29.

Did you share that sack? He got me! I needed that sack! As we've already

:14:30.:14:35.

mentioned, you can see highlights of the Patriot against the Texans this

:14:36.:14:40.

Saturday. We're going to start one of our week to round-ups with the

:14:41.:14:44.

Texans and their visit to the Kansas City Chiefs. It has gone very well

:14:45.:14:50.

thought Brock Osweiler so far and the Texans. Here was his 27 yard

:14:51.:14:55.

pass to Hopkins for that touchdown. Four field goals each league sides

:14:56.:15:01.

shared after that, the Texans winning 19-12. He's doing well,

:15:02.:15:06.

Brock Osweiler. $17 million, he must be doing well! That is a very good

:15:07.:15:13.

point! Last week's Thursday night game was the New York Jets and the

:15:14.:15:19.

Buffalo Bills. That Jets went 20-17 up. The Bills, as you will seek got

:15:20.:15:27.

themselves back into it. Rex Ryan is under pressure here, isn't he?

:15:28.:15:30.

Absolutely, completely under pressure. They had and owners play

:15:31.:15:36.

meeting and you never see that that tells you what kind of trouble Rex

:15:37.:15:43.

Ryan is in. Coaches aren't in that! They are the ones on the hot seat!

:15:44.:15:47.

The Jets pulled away in the fourth quarter. Matt Forte's four

:15:48.:15:55.

touchdowns, the Jets eventually winning 37-31. Pittsburgh Steelers

:15:56.:15:59.

continue their impressive start to the season. Ben Roethlisberger with

:16:00.:16:03.

that impressive pasta. Then watch this turn of speed, Jason! Look at

:16:04.:16:12.

that, slide! That led to another touchdown, a four yard touchdown

:16:13.:16:15.

pass to Williams. Pittsburgh's beating the Bengals. A difficult

:16:16.:16:19.

start for the Bengals. Cleveland here took a three touchdown lead

:16:20.:16:30.

against Baltimore. They will be Cleveland, though. You know what's

:16:31.:16:35.

coming! The fact that they took a three touchdown lead, as it

:16:36.:16:38.

highlight what their offense could be eventually? There's no doubt

:16:39.:16:44.

about that, if he had the right people in place the would-be winning

:16:45.:16:49.

games at Cleveland. They are 20 zip up at this stage and in the kick for

:16:50.:16:53.

the last Cleveland touchdown conversion is blocked and it is run

:16:54.:16:58.

back for two points by Young will stop even though that only takes it

:16:59.:17:03.

to 20-2, you go into the locker room thinking that could change

:17:04.:17:07.

everything. They're like, man, we seen this before. When you're a

:17:08.:17:11.

losing team, you're used to losing. Baltimore then fought back and as

:17:12.:17:17.

you say, maybe Cleveland knew what was coming, because in the end

:17:18.:17:21.

Baltimore won 25-20 against the Browns. It was the only 20 points

:17:22.:17:29.

they scored. It was, don't rub it in for them! New Orleans at the New

:17:30.:17:34.

York Giants. A scoreless first quarter. Second-quarter field goal

:17:35.:17:38.

blocked and returned by Jenkins. Were you surprised that this was

:17:39.:17:43.

such a low scoring game between the Saints and the Giants? I wasn't,

:17:44.:17:47.

because the Giants got their money 's worth for what they are paying

:17:48.:17:52.

for their defense. The Saints's defense has not been that good,

:17:53.:17:55.

though. They played surprisingly well in this game. They did play

:17:56.:18:01.

very well. Carolina got their season up and running. They were beaten at

:18:02.:18:08.

Denver on the opening day. Kelvin Benjamin and Cam Newton connected

:18:09.:18:12.

for two crucial third quarter touchdowns. He is a man mountain,

:18:13.:18:17.

Kelvin Benjamin. Wow! I just want you to see the block on Luke

:18:18.:18:27.

Keighley, there! Sound effects, a bit of Lionel Richie! But Carolina

:18:28.:18:31.

are up and running. They are, they're ready to go. Cam Newton,

:18:32.:18:36.

that is our new leader. You will have the deal time to argue about

:18:37.:18:40.

Cam Newton over the coming weeks. Next, the Tennessee Titans at the

:18:41.:18:46.

Detroit Lions. The Titans suffered a week one loss to the Vikings, while

:18:47.:18:52.

the Lions beat the Colts with eight seconds remaining. A fascinating

:18:53.:18:54.

matchup between two teams threatening to impress.

:18:55.:18:58.

COMMENTATOR: Penalty, Tennessee will start at the 5-yard line for this

:18:59.:19:04.

drive, no score in the opening quarter. Touchdown! A safety from

:19:05.:19:17.

Brian Stevens! John Coughlan just gets beaten right out of the ball.

:19:18.:19:21.

You're coming out of your end zone, you can't catch a defensive end in

:19:22.:19:32.

the NFL, you've got... 2nd 20. Rolling out to his left. To the end

:19:33.:19:36.

zone, touchdown! Anquan Boldin! On the ensuing Titans possession,

:19:37.:19:54.

they would hit a 46 yard field goal to cut the Lions's lead to 9-3 early

:19:55.:19:56.

in the second quarter. Stafford, fires, end zone! He has

:19:57.:20:13.

the touchdown if it stands. This is going against the Lions. Pass

:20:14.:20:16.

interference. 10-yard penalty. So, 1st goal, back at the 11-yard

:20:17.:20:22.

line. Stafford in the middle, touchdown!

:20:23.:20:32.

Anquan Boldin reels them in. Offense, number 72. That is the

:20:33.:20:52.

third Lions called back today because of a penalty. The penalties

:20:53.:20:58.

forced the Lions to settle for a 42 yard field goal from Matt Prater to

:20:59.:21:01.

make it 12-3 heading into half-time. Play action, and it is picked off!

:21:02.:21:06.

Clover Quinn with the interception! It is a roll-out. All of his action

:21:07.:21:31.

is going to the right side. Mariota, his action pulls Quinn that way,

:21:32.:21:45.

right into the throw. Stafford... Stafford, not so gracefully, goes

:21:46.:21:51.

down after a gain of 24! Nobody talks about the mobility of Matthew

:21:52.:21:56.

Stafford. They won't be talking about the grace of him either, but

:21:57.:22:00.

what a great job, sits in the soft spot. Five minutes later, Matt

:22:01.:22:05.

Prater would make a 27 yard field goal to give the Lions a 15-3 lead

:22:06.:22:11.

going into the fourth quarter. First and ten from the Detroit 30-yard

:22:12.:22:17.

line. Mariota, looking deep, touchdown Titans! Walker with his

:22:18.:22:26.

first touchdown of the season. Good job by Mariota. As he gets more

:22:27.:22:30.

experienced in his career, he will try even harder to hold that safety

:22:31.:22:33.

who almost comes over and makes a play, there, and he got that ball on

:22:34.:22:41.

the money to Delanie Walker and boy, the Tennessee Titans needed that.

:22:42.:22:45.

-- looking for Tate. Stafford throwing close to the sideline. If

:22:46.:22:59.

he had thrown it close to the middle of the field, that would have been a

:23:00.:23:06.

touchdown. Golden Tate is not able to get his shoulders round. I agree

:23:07.:23:12.

with you, Steve, but Matthew Stafford nos too, as a quarterback,

:23:13.:23:18.

that ball has got to be attempt away from the sideline. -- Matthew

:23:19.:23:22.

Stafford knows that. Mariota committed DiMarco -- Mariota, to

:23:23.:23:36.

DiMarco. Mariota lofts one! Is a 1st down for Murray, gain of 22. Now

:23:37.:23:42.

they're starting to put pressure on it defense that has spread very

:23:43.:23:47.

thin. If you're playing for field goals, you're going to get the ball

:23:48.:23:51.

back... There's just not enough time to do that. This is the right play.

:23:52.:24:00.

Mariota with time, end zone, and it is good! Johnson, what a play! A 4th

:24:01.:24:17.

down, Andre Johnson with the 69th touchdown of his career, and now the

:24:18.:24:23.

Titans will go for two. How does he catch this ball? He is well

:24:24.:24:26.

defended, there are guys all around him and he pulls it in. That's why

:24:27.:24:31.

he's going to be a Hall of Famer when it's all said and done. You

:24:32.:24:35.

make big plays when you get the chance, at big times. Big play here,

:24:36.:24:44.

a field goal too tight it. Mariota going right... The 2-point

:24:45.:24:48.

conversion is no good! Matt Prater has been clutched in his

:24:49.:24:56.

career, will he get a chance? It is 3rd 9. Stafford, intercepted! He

:24:57.:25:10.

wisely goes to the ground. Matthew Stafford had got 212 passes without

:25:11.:25:18.

an interception, and he throws one here to Paris Cox, who had a

:25:19.:25:23.

miserable game for the Titans, but in the big moment, Cox comes up with

:25:24.:25:31.

the pick and the Titans win, 16-15. Yeah, Marcus did a great job of just

:25:32.:25:38.

staying composed. Andre Adams made the biggest play of the game. He is

:25:39.:25:44.

a hell of a player and we're lucky to have him here. Mariota was calm,

:25:45.:25:48.

he knew the play was going to work and he just let us calmly downfield.

:25:49.:25:54.

We've got a lot to work on. Too many penalties, without question. Time

:25:55.:25:57.

and again we take it into the end zone and get called back out for one

:25:58.:26:01.

infraction or another and some pretty sizeable gains as well. We

:26:02.:26:04.

let them off the hook with a couple of defensive penalties. That is

:26:05.:26:09.

something we've got to get straight, and 17 penalties is disappointing.

:26:10.:26:16.

We've got to get that straight and quickly. Two teams we haven't really

:26:17.:26:19.

seen a lot whilst we have been doing this show, but it was a very tight

:26:20.:26:23.

game and very entertaining. It probably shouldn't have been a tight

:26:24.:26:26.

game, because it right should have been home and hosed if it had not

:26:27.:26:30.

been for all the penalties they conceded. We can see some of them

:26:31.:26:35.

again now. 17 in total, costing 138 yards and three touchdowns. That is

:26:36.:26:40.

the quickest way to lose. You cannot beat yourself, and that is what they

:26:41.:26:44.

did. They gave themselves opportunities to score in the red

:26:45.:26:47.

zone and that is very hard to do. Then they give away penalties to

:26:48.:26:51.

negate those scores, you can't play like that. Can you sometimes find

:26:52.:26:55.

yourself, once you're in that rut of giving away penalties, do you

:26:56.:26:59.

sometimes find you can't stop giving them? That's what it seems like,

:27:00.:27:10.

man. It would drive coach Coughlin insane. Penalties are the last thing

:27:11.:27:15.

you want because it costs your team momentum. You could be driving down

:27:16.:27:22.

the field and called back. Ridiculous, far too many penalties.

:27:23.:27:26.

If you get away with five or under, that's considered a good

:27:27.:27:34.

performance? That is for offense and defense. If you go over that, and he

:27:35.:27:38.

said it in his interview, we're going to have to work on this...

:27:39.:27:41.

What will happen at their training camp over the course of the next six

:27:42.:27:46.

or seven days? Next week is going to be tough. Usually they are bringing

:27:47.:27:49.

in officials to officiate practice and call everything like it was the

:27:50.:27:53.

game. You go through practice and you've got these refs watching

:27:54.:27:55.

everything you do because they've got to clean the game up. It's going

:27:56.:28:00.

to be a tough week. Is it more about educating the players after a week

:28:01.:28:04.

like that, rather than punishing them? Not necessarily educating them

:28:05.:28:08.

because they know what is right and wrong, but sometimes you just get

:28:09.:28:11.

sloppy out there, you just can't afford that many penalties in a

:28:12.:28:15.

game. The reason I said educate, because I tell you why, there were

:28:16.:28:19.

29 penalties in total in that game. I watched so many games this season

:28:20.:28:24.

where flags are coming out here, there and everywhere. I know there

:28:25.:28:27.

are new rules on celebrating as well, but are they stricter at the

:28:28.:28:31.

start of the season, referees? Therefore players need to be

:28:32.:28:35.

educated? Yes, you need to know what is being called. You can bring the

:28:36.:28:38.

refs out and say they are and deciding this this year, be aware of

:28:39.:28:40.

that. The coaches know exactly what

:28:41.:28:49.

referee is calling what. Because different referees look out for

:28:50.:28:53.

different things. Exactly. About what week did you think you could

:28:54.:28:58.

get away with it? About week six, week seven. Next up, Dallas Cowboys

:28:59.:29:03.

and Washington Redskins, both suffering defeat in week one, and

:29:04.:29:07.

Cowboys came within one point of the Giants and the Redskins were soundly

:29:08.:29:11.

put away by the impressive Steelers. Time to find out who avoids the

:29:12.:29:17.

unenviable position of 0-2 after two. COMMENTATOR: Prescott gets it

:29:18.:29:40.

wide, Swain wide open, inside the ten. 1st goal, right up the

:29:41.:29:48.

middle, waiting for the signal, touchdown! Kevin, we talk a lot

:29:49.:29:55.

about the best offensive line in football, just watch that line of

:29:56.:30:00.

scrimmage, whose winning? The Cowboys are clearly winning. Ezekiel

:30:01.:30:09.

Fryers getting behind -- Elliott getting behind. Cuts up inside the

:30:10.:30:23.

10, Matt Jones! Touchdown! A 14 yard run for Matt Jones, his first

:30:24.:30:27.

touchdown of the year. STUDIO: Dan Bailey hit his second field goal of

:30:28.:30:32.

the game to make it 13-7. Washington cut the lead when they got the ball

:30:33.:30:37.

back. This 36 yard Dustin Hopkins field goal made it 13-10 going into

:30:38.:30:49.

half-time. COMMENTATOR: 2nd down, for man pressure. Cousins, end zone!

:30:50.:30:54.

Touchdown. Now that was brilliant. Crowder, you can't throw it any

:30:55.:31:10.

better, folks. He's going to get thrown into the wall, but he's got

:31:11.:31:16.

himself a touchdown. 3rd 11. Prescott thinks about running,

:31:17.:31:23.

hasn't done it yet. Forget run when you can hit number 88! 1st goal

:31:24.:31:31.

for Dallas. Every time he's lined up on the shot, you've got to throw to

:31:32.:31:36.

this man. DAC Prescott doing a nice job seeing the matchup. If you are

:31:37.:31:43.

Washington Redskins you better and quick to make an adjustment. 2nd

:31:44.:31:55.

goal from the six. One touchdown they got, remember the penalty. He's

:31:56.:32:01.

going to run! And he's going to score! Talk about finishing, Dak

:32:02.:32:15.

Prescott thinking, you know what? I'm a pretty good athlete, I can use

:32:16.:32:19.

that, go ahead and use those legs, use them to your advantage, that's

:32:20.:32:24.

exactly what he does. Something like he's going to throw, then

:32:25.:32:28.

bludgeoning forward for the touchdown. STUDIO: On the next

:32:29.:32:32.

Washington possession a seven Play Drive stalled and they had to settle

:32:33.:32:36.

for a 29 yard Hopkins field goal and that made it 20-20. COMMENTATOR: The

:32:37.:32:52.

ball is loose! Shaun Phillips is the guy who recovered it.

:32:53.:33:00.

Kevin, I think it's Josh Norman who knocks this football out. Josh

:33:01.:33:07.

Norman says all right, if I can't cover Dez Bryant, I'll make my

:33:08.:33:10.

presence known somehow. Our colleague kind of invented that

:33:11.:33:17.

technique, the peanut punch, goes in like a boxer with that right hand

:33:18.:33:21.

and gets the ball out. Great players affect the game, that's exactly what

:33:22.:33:25.

Josh Norman just did. STUDIO: Despite great field possession Lille

:33:26.:33:30.

position, Washington again failed to make the end zone. This kick gave

:33:31.:33:34.

them a 3-point lead with a quarter to go. COMMENTATOR: 3rd goal.

:33:35.:33:42.

Firing, intercepted! Picked off in the end zone by Barry Church! What a

:33:43.:33:49.

huge stop by Dallas! He's watching the eyes of Kirk Cousins. Never sees

:33:50.:33:57.

Barry Church. Great play by Barry Church. Cowboys stay in it with a

:33:58.:34:06.

big play. 3rd 11. Play clock at one, they get it off. Prescott

:34:07.:34:12.

firing far side, he's got his man! Beazley again. Huge throw from

:34:13.:34:20.

Prescott. 2nd down and two. Morris, touchdown! Back on his old home turf

:34:21.:34:30.

and he puts his new team in front. This is not about the running back

:34:31.:34:35.

but about that offensive play. Look at Zack Martin pushing Ziggy had off

:34:36.:34:40.

the line of scrimmage. Alfred Morris says thank you very much. No

:34:41.:34:45.

time-outs, Washington needs a touchdown. Cowboys up four with four

:34:46.:34:55.

seconds to play. Kevin cousins looking, throwing. Incomplete! The

:34:56.:35:03.

Cowboys hold on to win it. The rookie Dak Prescott with a

:35:04.:35:10.

game-winning touchdown in the third quarter. We stayed aggressive

:35:11.:35:15.

throughout the game, they did a good job early off keeping us out of the

:35:16.:35:20.

end zone. Everybody kept great poise, playing with composure

:35:21.:35:26.

throughout the game. STUDIO: I want to focus on Kirk Cousins and why he

:35:27.:35:31.

might be feeling the pressure. One of the chats we've been having is

:35:32.:35:35.

because he has this franchise tag, explain why that might give him some

:35:36.:35:41.

pressure. The franchise tag, he's getting average top five salaries of

:35:42.:35:45.

the quarterback salary, he's basically playing for a one-year

:35:46.:35:50.

deal, he's got to prove his worth a long-term investment. At the end of

:35:51.:35:53.

last season they didn't want to give him a bumper contract, they put the

:35:54.:35:57.

franchise thing on, you average out the salaries, but he could be

:35:58.:36:00.

released at the end of the year? They are saying they are not sure,

:36:01.:36:05.

they are not sold on Kirk Cousins in the long run, let's give him a run

:36:06.:36:10.

to see what he does. Seems at the moment like he's affecting them,

:36:11.:36:14.

lost their first two games, both at home. Picked one play in particular

:36:15.:36:19.

to show what he's doing wrong. This is the big one, locking in on one

:36:20.:36:24.

receiver that he tries to deliver it to, and that allows their defenders

:36:25.:36:28.

to know exactly where he's going. The third defender is watching his

:36:29.:36:35.

eyes the whole time. That's not what a veteran quarterback does. He never

:36:36.:36:39.

looks to his right, does he? Leaves them in this position with a couple

:36:40.:36:43.

of seconds on the clock, goes for they'll marry and doesn't come off.

:36:44.:36:47.

Now there are all these rumours around Washington Redskins of play

:36:48.:36:50.

an rest, player dissatisfaction with Kirk Cousins, which isn't going to

:36:51.:37:01.

help. It will make people turn on you, 0-2, I've seen it happen so

:37:02.:37:05.

many times. But they need to stick with that kid, he's going through a

:37:06.:37:10.

rough patch. You seen it happen in dressing rooms? All the time, you go

:37:11.:37:15.

0-2, people have a contract to live up to, pressure on them, especially

:37:16.:37:20.

the coaching staff, it happens. So within that set up do you expect the

:37:21.:37:24.

head coach to deal with that, the quarterback coach? Who should try

:37:25.:37:29.

and calm this suppose it am rest with only two games in? It's the

:37:30.:37:35.

head coach. It's his job to control what's happening in the locker room

:37:36.:37:38.

with the players. I'm surprised that it's out there that they are saying

:37:39.:37:41.

they have an issue with him because who is talking to who? They should

:37:42.:37:49.

be handling that internal. Sources! It creates more unrest if you think

:37:50.:37:52.

there is a league, that is more worrying than your quarterback being

:37:53.:37:56.

in bad form. Exactly. A few games left to cover, starting with

:37:57.:38:03.

Atlanta's Oakland. We were praising Oakland last week but Atlanta's

:38:04.:38:07.

scored 35 points against them. Jones with the touchdown. Derek Carr

:38:08.:38:16.

connects with Clive Walford. The Raiders defense will be a worry.

:38:17.:38:22.

They were a bit unlucky here. That's the problem. They are giving up too

:38:23.:38:29.

many on defense. A defense that was impressive was Minnesota, but Grant

:38:30.:38:32.

opening their new stadium. What will be worrying for the Vikings and

:38:33.:38:35.

we'll talk about this surely, Adrian Peterson leaving the game with a

:38:36.:38:41.

torn meniscus. Of course you've got Bradford as their quarterback now.

:38:42.:38:45.

This was the pick of the touchdowns. Stefan Dix with that. Not much

:38:46.:38:55.

action at the Colosseum, the Rams returning to LA, but it looks great.

:38:56.:38:59.

I know they will not be there for long, but wow. 9-3, the Rams winning

:39:00.:39:11.

that. They still haven't scored an offensive touchdown in this NFL

:39:12.:39:16.

season. Speaking of great defense, the Broncos were at it again. First

:39:17.:39:21.

Aqib Talib with this 46 yard interception for a touchdown. When

:39:22.:39:29.

your defense scores, you can win a lot of games! Did you see the

:39:30.:39:34.

stutter step? Did you see the stutter step? Ron Miller whipping

:39:35.:39:41.

the ball from Andrew Luck, 15 yard fumble return. Who needs offense,

:39:42.:39:50.

man? That's what excites people rather than the defense. EBay for

:39:51.:39:55.

Travis Benjamin for the Chargers, 115 yards, eight catches including

:39:56.:39:59.

two touchdowns. Jacksonville have had a disappointing start, eating in

:40:00.:40:08.

San Diego 38-14. That's why you not -- why you need offense. The

:40:09.:40:13.

Buccaneers beaten by the Cardinals in the open weekend. Connected for

:40:14.:40:19.

51 yards, the defense delivering for Arizona. Marcus Cooper with an

:40:20.:40:23.

interception. They needed that after defeat at home to the Patriots. This

:40:24.:40:28.

is a good team. They had to come back and beat somebody. And they did

:40:29.:40:33.

beat the Buccaneers badly. And then the Monday night game, Carson Wentz

:40:34.:40:39.

can do no wrong, really, as he beat the Bears. And they were impressive

:40:40.:40:46.

defensively at the very least. Two touchdowns for Ryan Mathews, 32

:40:47.:40:52.

yards. It finished 29-14. Jay Cutler left with an injured hand, I think

:40:53.:40:55.

in the end it was injured thumb. Electrifying play at the end, Eddie

:40:56.:41:01.

Royal is returning a punt from 65 yards. This is a great return. The

:41:02.:41:09.

hurdle first of all. This is the exciting part of football, Special

:41:10.:41:16.

Teams! And the blocking as well. But it was all futile because the Eagles

:41:17.:41:24.

won 29-14. So, let's just confirm all of the results for you from week

:41:25.:41:30.

two. You can pick out your favourites of course. The Patriots

:41:31.:41:35.

beating the Dolphins. The Panthers on the board with the dismantling of

:41:36.:41:40.

the 49ers. Oakland will be worrying about their defense, conceded 69

:41:41.:41:44.

points in their opening two games. If we look at the others,

:41:45.:41:48.

confirmation of Tennessee beating Detroit. Pittsburgh beating the

:41:49.:41:55.

Bengals. The Seahawks score stands out, the two teams only in single

:41:56.:42:03.

figures. Let's talk about some of the significant injuries, shall we?

:42:04.:42:07.

Starting with Adrian Peterson, who has torn his meniscus, which is an

:42:08.:42:11.

injury you have suffered from three times, the same need? Well, no, both

:42:12.:42:19.

my knees. I played through the entire season on both of them but

:42:20.:42:23.

one of them I had in 2008 which was a really bad one, they had to sew it

:42:24.:42:30.

down so I missed the entire season. It depends on the severity of his

:42:31.:42:35.

injury, the terror of the meniscus will determine how wrong he is out

:42:36.:42:39.

for. Could it also depend, obviously he plays a different position...

:42:40.:42:46.

What are you trying to say? A bit more lateral movement as well, and

:42:47.:42:53.

pace, they will have to be careful. Yes, he's getting hit, he's getting

:42:54.:42:57.

tackled, he's got to protect that. And he's the offense, a big loss for

:42:58.:43:03.

them. I know they have Sam Bradford, but to lose him will be a massive

:43:04.:43:07.

blow, given how they have started the season.

:43:08.:43:10.

They can't lose him, especially in the later months of the year. In

:43:11.:43:17.

December, you need to bring your defense and you're running game and

:43:18.:43:20.

a PE is their running game and if they don't have him, they're in

:43:21.:43:23.

trouble. An injury for the Broncos with DeMarcus Ware, he has broken a

:43:24.:43:30.

bone near his elbow, that is what we're told. They are saying that

:43:31.:43:34.

could be three or four weeks. I'm no doctor, but for a break in your arm,

:43:35.:43:40.

that sounds remarkably quick to be back playing! I've broken my arm

:43:41.:43:43.

twice and I've come back in three weeks and you can play, but it's

:43:44.:43:48.

difficult. It's difficult to get out there and use your hands and that's

:43:49.:43:52.

what he has to do. Especially as a defensive linemen. He's very good

:43:53.:43:55.

with his hands and the quick arm movements. He's to need his arms

:43:56.:44:00.

strong to play at the level he is accustomed to. Three or four weeks

:44:01.:44:03.

seems optimistic to me. Maybe a bit longer. A couple of teams we should

:44:04.:44:09.

focus on, the Rams were hammered for their performance against Sampras

:44:10.:44:12.

Francisco in week one. They didn't score a point in that game. But if

:44:13.:44:16.

they are going to do anything this season, it will be their defense,

:44:17.:44:21.

whence it? No question about that. Greg Williams, like my boy says here

:44:22.:44:25.

all the time, outstanding defensive coordinator and they are based on

:44:26.:44:30.

defense. They have a quarterback who is not burning down the house by any

:44:31.:44:34.

stretch of the imagination. They going to have to win with defense.

:44:35.:44:39.

But their offense is surely going to have to deliver at some point?

:44:40.:44:42.

They've got a great running back, if they get the running game going and

:44:43.:44:45.

play good defense, they could be competitive. For the moment, thank

:44:46.:44:49.

you to you both. One of the beauties of the NFL is that we get actual

:44:50.:44:53.

access inside the locker room. This is what happened in there during

:44:54.:44:54.

week two. Hell of a team win. Now let's build!

:44:55.:45:03.

Let's enjoy it tonight, because you deserve to enjoy it a night, but

:45:04.:45:08.

when we come in here tomorrow we turn the page and we are focusing on

:45:09.:45:12.

the next opponent. Texans on three will start one, two, three! No one

:45:13.:45:18.

can out fight us, even though it's not pretty all the time, you got to

:45:19.:45:24.

be hard BLEEP champion. You've got to keep the pedal to the metal. One,

:45:25.:45:31.

two, three! One game ball. Most interception returns in the history

:45:32.:45:35.

of Denver... Let me just...

:45:36.:45:47.

LAUGHTER Let me just take you around some of

:45:48.:45:52.

the social media on the NFL. An interesting prank doing the rounds.

:45:53.:46:00.

Full mask, Tom Brady said it was one of the creepiest things he'd ever

:46:01.:46:04.

seen. When the mask came off, it was his former team-mate, Wes Welker and

:46:05.:46:10.

he had been inside Foxboro, watching, in the Tom Brady mask!

:46:11.:46:17.

Well, they could still lift him, so that's all right. Some very

:46:18.:46:20.

interesting outfits around the NFL as well, James Corden going down so

:46:21.:46:26.

well in America on the Late Show he does for CBS. Let's not make any

:46:27.:46:32.

comment on this. He just had to go and be a cheerleader at the Rams for

:46:33.:46:37.

one of the skits they were filming. I'm getting that picture off before

:46:38.:46:42.

you say something! Let's take a look at Camp. We know that

:46:43.:46:44.

loves his outfits in press conferences. -- let's take a look at

:46:45.:46:52.

Cam Are you aware of big Van Dyke in Mary Poppins? The straw boater gives

:46:53.:46:59.

him a bit of Dick van Dijk! His Cockney accent might be better than

:47:00.:47:07.

his as well! A great picture of the new Minnesota Stadium, which is a

:47:08.:47:11.

fantastic venue and they got off to a good start as well. That's almost

:47:12.:47:15.

all we have time for, but after Match of the Day on Saturday night

:47:16.:47:19.

we will bring you the NFL Showed with highlights of the Patriots and

:47:20.:47:26.

the Texans, and Osi gets his hands on the Spurs defender and NFL fan

:47:27.:47:31.

Jan Vertonghen. The training, you can train wherever? And if I don't

:47:32.:47:39.

want, I stay? Imagine Tottenham want to get rid of me, I say no, I can

:47:40.:47:43.

stay! I will tell them you're not going! I think I picked the wrong

:47:44.:47:46.

sport! You won't want to miss that. The NFL

:47:47.:47:55.

Show this Saturday on BBC One, after Match of the Day. On Sunday night,

:47:56.:48:06.

from 7:30pm, live NFL coverage. From us, it is good night and thanks for

:48:07.:48:12.

watching. See you next week. The first signs of patterns, teams that

:48:13.:48:15.

will clearly be challengers come February. Teams for whom the winter

:48:16.:48:21.

ahead already looks stark and cold. After two rounds, there is

:48:22.:48:24.

confirmation of who is making a mark and who is rising to the challenge.

:48:25.:48:30.

And even clearer signs of who is feeling the strain. In the band flow

:48:31.:48:35.

of football, there are those stopped in their tracks. Pain is big

:48:36.:48:44.

counterbalance to the poetry of football, only in the NFL. You can

:48:45.:48:51.
