And it will be time for these

two teams to settle it

0:00:040:00:07

between the white lines.

0:00:070:00:09

COMMENTATOR:

No way.

0:00:090:00:10

He's going to fire

towards the end zone.

0:00:100:00:12

Reno have lost have lost the ball

the ball up the near side.

0:00:120:00:15

Montana throw.

0:00:150:00:16

The end zone.

0:00:160:00:17

Touchdown.

0:00:170:00:19

Looking down field, going deep.

0:00:190:00:20

A one man wrecking crew.

0:00:200:00:22

Unbelievable!

0:00:220:00:24

Let's go!

0:00:240:00:26

How did he do that?

0:00:260:00:28

Looking, head ups.

0:00:280:00:29

Oh, and caught, for the win.

0:00:290:00:31

Unstoppable!

0:00:310:00:34

Hello and welcome to NFL This Week.

0:00:340:00:36

We're past the half way mark

in the regular season

0:00:360:00:38

and what a half we've had so far.

0:00:380:00:42

It started at 100 miles an hour.

0:00:420:00:46

The speed of hurricane Irma,

the NFL lashed by the president.

0:00:460:00:54

And sometimes in a storm you have

to stay low, stay strong.

0:00:540:00:57

The theme of a painful

struggle persists.

0:00:570:00:59

Stars of the show hobbling away.

0:00:590:01:01

Old hands that know full well it

comes with the territory.

0:01:010:01:06

The rookie loving the bright lights.

0:01:060:01:08

COMMENTATOR: Watson.

0:01:080:01:09

Touchdown!

0:01:090:01:10

Out of action too.

0:01:100:01:12

Other themes, more uplifting,

teams not given a chance,

0:01:120:01:16

shouting their defiance.

0:01:160:01:17

Love you, guys.

0:01:170:01:18

Love where we're going.

0:01:180:01:22

New faces lighting up this season,

outsiders on the rise,

0:01:220:01:27

the fancied fading, when Giants fall

they come down hard.

0:01:270:01:30

Sometimes between the extremes

business as usual.

0:01:300:01:34

The hard-headed and the well

tested in their groove.

0:01:340:01:39

Now, as they always have

been, in contention.

0:01:390:01:44

And around the core of steel swirl

the changes and adjustments

0:01:440:01:49

and trades and sackings.

0:01:490:01:53

All that will sweep football

into the second half

0:01:530:01:55

of the regular season.

0:01:550:01:58

The rushing yards and the passing

yards, and the unflinching courage

0:01:580:02:01

of an entire brotherhood

of pro footballers.

0:02:010:02:04

Oh!

0:02:040:02:05

Loving each other.

0:02:050:02:07

How many people want

to eat a W tonight?

0:02:070:02:09

And knocking lumps

out of each other.

0:02:090:02:14

All together and all trying

to tear each other apart.

0:02:140:02:18

So to lead us into the second half

of the season it's the battered

0:02:180:02:21

and bruised Washington Redskins.

0:02:210:02:23

Plagued by injuries,

the three time Super Bowl winners

0:02:230:02:25

head to Seattle to face

an unforgiving Seahawks.

0:02:250:02:28

On a four game win streak,

Russell Wilson's men put 41 points

0:02:280:02:32

past Houston last week in one

of the games of the season.

0:02:320:02:42

COMMENTARY: Blitz.

0:02:430:02:47

Wagner for two.

0:02:470:02:57

When Seattle has you in

a disadvantageous position,

0:02:570:03:03

they like coming after you.

0:03:030:03:05

They've got them backed up

and they sent everyone at Cousins.

0:03:050:03:07

It became a game of cat and mouse.

0:03:070:03:10

And so, Wagner with the safety.

0:03:100:03:11

Of course after that the Redskins

will free kick it from the 20.

0:03:110:03:14

They do just that.

0:03:140:03:15

This is Lockett.

0:03:150:03:16

Lockett is taken down at 30.

0:03:160:03:17

Pretty good coverage by Washington.

0:03:170:03:23

Blair Walsh has had a good year,

the former Viking, 12 of 13.

0:03:230:03:26

This is a 44 yarder.

0:03:260:03:27

And it's no good.

0:03:270:03:28

So, a second miss of the year,

and that one wasn't even close.

0:03:280:03:32

This will be a 39

yard try for Walsh.

0:03:320:03:35

Ryan, the holder.

0:03:350:03:39

And that one is going

to go wide, as well.

0:03:390:03:49

13th play.

0:03:510:03:52

It's Kelley.

0:03:520:03:53

And he is in.

0:03:530:03:54

Touchdown Washington!

0:03:540:03:55

He does a tremendous job.

0:03:550:03:56

And with a bunch of guys

who were just getting

0:03:560:03:58

to know each other, working

against the Seattle Seahawks,

0:03:580:04:01

typically the number one scoring

defense in the league.

0:04:010:04:03

Wilson.

0:04:030:04:04

Looking that way.

0:04:040:04:05

Goes over the middle.

0:04:050:04:10

McAvoy, his second

catch of the year.

0:04:100:04:12

They've got to hurry-up

and spike it, though,

0:04:120:04:14

no time-outs, eight seconds,

got to get to the line.

0:04:140:04:16

Five seconds.

0:04:160:04:17

Wilson will spike it

with three seconds left.

0:04:170:04:19

Saved enough time to give

Walsh another attempt.

0:04:190:04:21

He has missed from 39,

he's missed from 44,

0:04:210:04:27

this would be a 49 yarder,

tying the season long if he gets it.

0:04:270:04:35

Snap and hold are good,

the kick is crooked,

0:04:350:04:37

and it is wide left again.

0:04:370:04:38

Three times in a row,

all wide left, unbelievable.

0:04:380:04:41

It's been a nightmare

first half for Walsh,

0:04:410:04:45

and it stays seven and two Redskins

at the break.

0:04:450:04:55

STUDIO: Nick Rose showed Walsh how

it was done in the third quarter,

0:04:570:05:00

he went over from 28 yards,

and Washington led by eight

0:05:000:05:02

going into the fourth quarter.

0:05:020:05:04

COMMENTARY: 2nd down.

0:05:040:05:05

Wilson.

0:05:050:05:06

He is wide open.

0:05:060:05:07

Willson, touchdown, Seattle!

0:05:070:05:11

Here comes Wilson 82,

the bootleg play.

0:05:110:05:12

Wilson able to get his shoulders

square on the flat,

0:05:120:05:15

turned it to one-on-one,

and Wilson to Willson,

0:05:150:05:17

extra L, touchdown.

0:05:170:05:21

And now in the fourth quarter,

down by two, the field goalkicker

0:05:210:05:26

who has missed three times,

they will go for two and the tie.

0:05:260:05:29

They are one of two,

on 2-point conversions this year.

0:05:290:05:34

Get it off.

0:05:340:05:35

Wilson throws...

0:05:350:05:36

No!

0:05:360:05:37

It has been intercepted.

0:05:370:05:38

And this could go.

0:05:380:05:41

Wilson racing to stop Swearinger,

makes a cut, Swearinger

0:05:410:05:43

still going on lateral.

0:05:430:05:48

Who is going to get there?

0:05:480:05:50

Still on his feet.

0:05:500:05:52

Another lateral.

0:05:520:05:53

Look at this play.

0:05:530:05:56

And finally taken down the Redskins.

0:05:560:05:58

That would have been a two point

conversion for Washington

0:05:580:06:01

if they had gone all the way.

0:06:010:06:06

Excitement, but all it

is is a failed 2-point

0:06:060:06:08

conversion for Seattle.

0:06:080:06:10

And to get to the 32,

four man rush, Cousins in trouble.

0:06:100:06:13

The ball is loose.

0:06:130:06:15

In the end zone, recovered,

waiting for a signal, touchdown!

0:06:150:06:25

Does he down is going to be the key,

because Freeney not only made

0:06:270:06:30

the tackle, but went for the...

0:06:300:06:32

See him working it right there?

0:06:320:06:37

I think they are going to rule

him down by contact.

0:06:370:06:40

But Freeney was trying to work

the ball free and got it late.

0:06:400:06:43

The quarterback was deemed down

with the ball in his hands

0:06:430:06:45

on the 4-yard line.

0:06:450:06:46

The ruling on the field, it will be

Washington's ball, 4th down.

0:06:460:06:49

Almost the game altering play.

0:06:490:06:51

From the 30.

0:06:510:06:55

A lot of time.

0:06:550:06:59

Wilson lets it go.

0:06:590:07:00

He has got a wide-open goal.

0:07:000:07:01

Touchdown!

0:07:010:07:05

Makes it a four point lead

and they are going to go for two.

0:07:050:07:09

And the reason is if Washington goes

down and scores it's a tie,

0:07:090:07:17

and if they can block

the extra, and they can stay.

0:07:170:07:19

Still get a shot, right.

0:07:190:07:23

On the roll.

0:07:230:07:24

Wilson looking, firing, dropped.

0:07:240:07:25

In and out of the hands of Graham.

0:07:250:07:27

But the touchdown, Wilson

and Baldwin gives Seattle the lead.

0:07:270:07:30

2nd down.

0:07:300:07:31

Freeney coming again.

0:07:310:07:32

Cousins gets rid of it.

0:07:320:07:34

In Seattle territory.

0:07:340:07:36

What a throw by

Cousins under duress.

0:07:360:07:42

Cousins, back again,

firing deep for Docston.

0:07:420:07:51

Diving!

0:07:510:07:52

Docston down at the one.

0:07:520:07:54

Anderson comes in at fullback.

0:07:540:07:55

Kelley going forward.

0:07:550:07:57

Kelley, touchdown!

0:07:570:08:00

Washington leads.

0:08:000:08:03

So, the Seahawks up

against the odds.

0:08:030:08:06

35 seconds left, and a 3rd & 10.

0:08:060:08:10

Wilson has time.

0:08:100:08:13

Fires, complete.

0:08:130:08:15

Richardson breaks the tackle.

0:08:150:08:16

To the 40.

0:08:160:08:18

And down.

0:08:180:08:19

But they've got to

hurry, no time-outs.

0:08:190:08:21

They rush to the line

with 22 seconds to go.

0:08:210:08:27

They are going to run a play here.

0:08:270:08:29

16 seconds left.

0:08:290:08:30

Wilson, looking,

in trouble, throws it.

0:08:300:08:33

And his arm was coming forward, it's

incomplete with 11 seconds left.

0:08:330:08:38

Did they call an incomplete?

0:08:380:08:39

Or did they call it down?

0:08:390:08:41

Here is the call.

0:08:410:08:42

Seahawks have to be ready here.

0:08:420:08:43

The ruling on the field

is confirmed.

0:08:430:08:50

The quarterback was down by contact.

0:08:500:08:51

Four seconds.

0:08:510:08:52

And it'll come down to this.

0:08:520:08:53

Barring something crazy this will be

the final play of the game.

0:08:530:08:56

Here we go.

0:08:560:08:57

Wilson...

0:08:570:08:59

One man rush, but

here comes Kerrigan.

0:08:590:09:00

He gets away.

0:09:000:09:01

He sets, he throws a Hail Mary

to the end zone, and it is...

0:09:010:09:05

Incomplete!

0:09:050:09:07

The Redskins win it.

0:09:070:09:10

It was close at the end,

but DeAngelo Hall got enough

0:09:100:09:14

of his hands in there to give

the Redskins one of them are

0:09:140:09:24

-- their hardest

fought wins in years.

0:09:240:09:25

Just total team victory.

0:09:250:09:26

I'll tell you.

0:09:260:09:27

The pass rushes, the coverage,

our defense was outstanding,

0:09:270:09:29

the coach did a great job.

0:09:290:09:31

Offensively we just spluttered,

we couldn't really run a ball.

0:09:310:09:33

We couldn't really protect.

0:09:330:09:34

Didn't do a lot of things.

0:09:340:09:36

But when it counted,

when they took the lead,

0:09:360:09:38

Kirk had two outstanding passes.

0:09:380:09:39

The guys made plays.

0:09:390:09:40

Just very proud

of all of those guys.

0:09:400:09:42

It's really important that we find

a way back and play good football.

0:09:420:09:45

That was bad.

0:09:450:09:46

A bad day for us.

0:09:460:09:47

And I totally feel

responsible for that.

0:09:470:09:49

I don't see anything

other than that.

0:09:490:09:51

It's not just on Blair or anything

else, you know, it's on all of us.

0:09:510:09:54

It starts with me and going down

the line, let's find

0:09:540:09:57

a way to be better.

0:09:570:09:59

The resiliency and the grit of this

team is a reflection

0:09:590:10:02

of the whole organisation.

0:10:020:10:03

It's the kind of thing you can build

on and do something with,

0:10:030:10:06

not just in one season or one part

of the season, but hopefully

0:10:060:10:09

for years to come.

0:10:090:10:10

You need wins like this to solidify

that kind of reputation.

0:10:100:10:13

It was a really, really

tense game, wasn't it?

0:10:130:10:16

As low scoring ones

often seem to be.

0:10:160:10:21

Yes, it was, twists and turns,

and absolutely, what do

0:10:210:10:24

you all call it, cracker?

0:10:240:10:25

A cracker of a game.

0:10:250:10:29

LAUGHTER.

0:10:290:10:30

Exactly.

0:10:300:10:31

A cracker of a game.

0:10:310:10:33

We're going to take

you through the sort of story

0:10:330:10:35

of the game, really.

0:10:350:10:36

You've just pointed out,

before we did this, you thought

0:10:360:10:38

Blair Walsh had his hair cut

like a Premier League footballer.

0:10:380:10:41

Man, those guys have

the freshest haircuts.

0:10:410:10:44

I mean, I like it.

0:10:440:10:45

Shame he didn't kick

like a Premier League footballer,

0:10:450:10:48

that would be the argument here.

0:10:480:10:49

But he had an absolute

shocker, didn't he, really?

0:10:490:10:51

If he had landed these field goals

in the first half it probably

0:10:510:10:54

would have been a very different

game, three missed

0:10:540:10:56

in the first half.

0:10:560:10:58

Absolutely.

0:10:580:10:59

And, you know, Seattle is always

built on playing defense.

0:10:590:11:01

They don't have their running game

going, so they have to make

0:11:010:11:04

all the points they can

in the kicking game.

0:11:040:11:06

This is detrimental

to their success.

0:11:060:11:08

Detrimental?

0:11:080:11:08

That's what's up.

0:11:080:11:10

You've been in England a long time.

0:11:100:11:11

I'm learning.

0:11:110:11:12

When you see these constantly

being missed, and there

0:11:120:11:14

is the Seattle owner and the general

manager, as well, it just,

0:11:140:11:17

it deflates a team, doesn't it?

0:11:170:11:19

No question about it.

0:11:190:11:20

Like Jason said, this

is a team built on defense,

0:11:200:11:23

they are not going to score a lot

of point anyway.

0:11:230:11:25

So all of these field goals count.

0:11:250:11:27

He's missing field goals

in a tight game like this,

0:11:270:11:30

it cost them in the end.

0:11:300:11:31

Is it the kind of thing

he will get cut for?

0:11:310:11:34

Yeah, you know what?

0:11:340:11:35

They don't have a lot of time

and patience with kickers.

0:11:350:11:37

So, if there's somebody out

there in the market,

0:11:370:11:39

believe me, he's in,

getting worked out.

0:11:390:11:41

The other thing with Blair Walsh,

of course, a couple of years ago

0:11:410:11:44

when he was at the Vikings,

he missed a crucial

0:11:440:11:47

kick in a playoff game

against the Seahawks.

0:11:470:11:49

How do you remember this?

0:11:490:11:51

LAUGHTER.

0:11:510:11:53

Strictly speaking,

it's all our jobs to

0:11:530:11:54

remember stuff like that.

0:11:540:11:56

Now it's your job to talk me

through the Washington defense.

0:11:560:11:58

They have got injuries,

haven't they, and yet they control

0:11:580:12:05

Russell Wilson

perfectly in this game.

0:12:050:12:06

Yeah, you know, you've got

to give it to the coaching,

0:12:060:12:09

and the depth they have

in their team.

0:12:090:12:11

So, when they picked this

roster in the offseason,

0:12:110:12:13

they really picked guys they knew

could fit into this scheme.

0:12:130:12:15

Because they are plugging guys in,

and they are making plays.

0:12:150:12:18

Now, what I'm led to believe

they did correctly, and I'm only

0:12:180:12:21

doing this because I'm on this side,

but you can talk through it,

0:12:210:12:24

is they didn't want Russell Wilson

to move anywhere, really come out

0:12:240:12:27

of those two lines.

0:12:270:12:29

Which is his strength.

0:12:290:12:30

Isn't it?

0:12:300:12:31

If he runs around.

0:12:310:12:32

Exactly, once he gets outside

of the pocket, that's

0:12:320:12:34

where Russell Wilson hurts you.

0:12:340:12:36

And you see the pressure

these teams are bringing.

0:12:360:12:38

They are keeping him in the pocket,

making him uncomfortable.

0:12:380:12:40

If you watch his footwork

he's not comfortable,

0:12:400:12:42

he keeps moving around,

and he is making them

0:12:420:12:45

make a lot of mistakes.

0:12:450:12:46

Shall I do it again?

0:12:460:12:47

One more time.

0:12:470:12:48

All right.

0:12:480:12:49

That's cool.

0:12:490:12:51

What, I mean, is the key to that

getting to him quickly, then?

0:12:510:12:54

The pace of the D line

and the linebackers?

0:12:540:12:57

What has to happen is the defensive

ends have to keep him contained.

0:12:570:13:00

They can't let him break outside.

0:13:000:13:02

When the pressure comes

they forced him to step up

0:13:020:13:04

and inside the pocket,

and that makes him

0:13:040:13:06

make the mistakes.

0:13:060:13:07

I suppose the question is why

haven't more teams tried to do this?

0:13:070:13:10

Because it's not that easy.

0:13:100:13:11

You have to be very disciplined

in your rush lanes.

0:13:110:13:16

And it's because he can create

when he gets outside that pocket.

0:13:160:13:23

He sees the field differently

than when he does when he is stuck

0:13:230:13:27

in there with pressure on his feet.

0:13:270:13:30

Is it more impressive

because I mean,

0:13:300:13:32

they've had a lot of injuries,

haven't they, this year?

0:13:320:13:34

Both offensively and defensively.

0:13:340:13:35

A lot of injuries.

0:13:350:13:36

But they keep plugging away.

0:13:360:13:38

They don't have a premier pass rush

outside of Kerrigan on that team.

0:13:380:13:41

And they were still able to give

Russell Wilson inside the bucket

0:13:410:13:44

and contain him and harass him

and harassing the entire game.

0:13:440:13:46

We spoke about injuries just there.

0:13:460:13:48

As I say, they've had them

offensively, as well.

0:13:480:13:50

He's got to throw to new receivers,

compared to the last season,

0:13:500:13:53

Kurt Cousins, doesn't have

Jackson any more, hasn't

0:13:530:13:55

got Garcon any more.

0:13:550:13:56

And he's making plays.

0:13:560:13:57

This was the knock on him, right.

0:13:570:13:59

Could he make the big

throws in a game where

0:13:590:14:01

he had to win the game?

0:14:010:14:03

And that's what he's

proving right now.

0:14:030:14:05

This guy's making himself a tonne

of money right now, by the way.

0:14:050:14:08

You could play anybody

in there and he could run

0:14:080:14:10

the offensive well enough

for you to play and win.

0:14:100:14:12

No question that you can see

what this guy is doing right now.

0:14:120:14:16

He is doing what the elite

quarterbacks in the NFL do.

0:14:160:14:18

He is making the other receivers,

who aren't household names,

0:14:180:14:21

good football players.

0:14:210:14:22

And you see this mistake right here,

that just happened?

0:14:220:14:24

Yes.

0:14:240:14:25

We need to highlight that.

0:14:250:14:26

Yes.

0:14:260:14:27

Because it's...

0:14:270:14:28

Shall I go back?

0:14:280:14:29

Yeah, yeah, go back

and check this out.

0:14:290:14:31

Because this is a rookie mistake.

0:14:310:14:33

This guy's a rookie corner...

0:14:330:14:34

You mean what this guy is doing

or me trying to work the screen?

0:14:340:14:37

No, no, we are talking

about the corner.

0:14:370:14:39

But he didn't take him down.

0:14:390:14:41

So he would have scored

if the safety wasn't

0:14:410:14:43

alert to hit him again.

0:14:430:14:44

And that was a rookie mistake.

0:14:440:14:45

In college you don't

have to do that.

0:14:450:14:48

Having done with all of those big

plays, they go over like this.

0:14:480:14:52

Smash mouth football.

0:14:520:14:53

Like this.

0:14:530:14:58

Right down.

0:14:580:15:02

Get in the gold line.

0:15:020:15:03

He gives his boy the ball,

because he says, you got us down

0:15:030:15:06

here, and I appreciate you.

0:15:060:15:07

That's good, that's good teamwork.

0:15:070:15:09

You talk about Cousins

are earning a tonne of money.

0:15:090:15:11

You can see what it means to him.

0:15:110:15:13

It was a proper performance by him.

0:15:130:15:15

Particularly in a week

where he must have been thinking,

0:15:150:15:17

I've just lost my chance to go

to the San Francisco 49ers.

0:15:170:15:20

LAUGHTER.

0:15:200:15:22

I know the 49ers are

awful this season,

0:15:220:15:24

but all the talk this season

was about what's he going to go to

0:15:240:15:28

the 49ers at the end of this season?

0:15:280:15:30

Now he has teams like

the Jacksonville Jaguars,

0:15:300:15:34

who have the defense,

plug him in, I mean,

0:15:340:15:36

they are Super Bowl

contenders, legitimately.

0:15:360:15:37

There will be teams lining

up outside the door

0:15:370:15:40

for this quarterback.

0:15:400:15:41

He's an outstanding player.

0:15:410:15:42

The talk of him going to San

Francisco was because of Shanahan,

0:15:420:15:44

and he knows the system,

and he knows him pretty well,

0:15:440:15:47

and it would have been a perfect,

seamless fit for the 49ers,

0:15:470:15:50

but the competition for this man

is going to be ridiculous.

0:15:500:15:53

We'll have highlights of Seattle's

trip to Arizona and preview

0:15:530:15:55

the remaining week 10 games.

0:15:550:15:56

You can also catch

the show on the iPlayer.

0:15:560:16:04

A reminder The NFL Show

is on at 11.30pm this

0:16:040:16:07

Saturday on BBC One.

0:16:070:16:08

Right let's take a look at some

of the other week 9 games.

0:16:080:16:11

We are going to start

with the Indianapolis Colts

0:16:110:16:13

against the Houston Texans.

0:16:130:16:14

The first game without Sean Watson.

0:16:140:16:15

Tom Savage stepping back in.

0:16:150:16:17

Hilton tormented the Texans.

0:16:170:16:18

He ran eight yards in two parts.

0:16:180:16:20

He gets up.

0:16:200:16:21

Damn, fellas!

0:16:210:16:22

CHUCKLES As you were explaining

earlier, Jason, he wasn't contacted.

0:16:220:16:29

He goes into the end zone.

0:16:290:16:31

Savage found Hopkins

in the fourth quarter,

0:16:310:16:32

and it wasn't enough,

and the Colts beat the Texans.

0:16:320:16:39

Savage wasn't Savage.

0:16:390:16:40

Exactly, have you been

working on that one?

0:16:400:16:42

Yes, it felt good.

0:16:420:16:45

Now, the two AFC wild card picks,

the Ravens and the Titans.

0:16:450:16:47

You've got to bring

up old stuff, man.

0:16:470:16:49

Oh, man.

0:16:490:16:52

Good play on the ball.

0:16:520:16:57

Titans actually did all right,

so one out of two isn't bad.

0:16:570:16:59

Did Meatloaf sing that?

0:16:590:17:00

Anyway, we did not talk about any

of the action there.

0:17:000:17:03

Mariota did well.

0:17:030:17:04

Good couple of throws.

0:17:040:17:05

Mariota did well.

0:17:050:17:06

The Titans won.

0:17:060:17:07

Mariota did well, he did not do

as well as Carson Wentz.

0:17:070:17:10

His Eagles are absolutely flying.

0:17:100:17:13

Four first half touchdowns

against this Broncos defense.

0:17:130:17:15

Burton being found from 27.

0:17:150:17:19

Get in there.

0:17:190:17:21

On his debut.

0:17:210:17:22

46 yard touchdown.

0:17:220:17:25

It did not work out

for our guy Brock, man.

0:17:250:17:27

No.

0:17:270:17:28

He just doesn't have it.

0:17:280:17:30

He hit Brock bottom.

0:17:300:17:32

CHUCKLES

0:17:320:17:33

You was working on that!

0:17:330:17:38

It might have taken a little while.

0:17:380:17:40

That was horrible.

0:17:400:17:41

The Rams went to New Jersey to make

it a horrible day for the Giants.

0:17:410:17:48

Robert Wood turned a 3rd and 33

into a second-quarter touchdown.

0:17:480:17:51

That looked bad.

0:17:510:17:52

That looked like the guys

weren't playing hard.

0:17:520:17:53

That's unacceptable.

0:17:530:17:55

Jared Goff was superb for LA.

0:17:550:17:56

Four touchdowns including that 67

yarder to Sammy Watkins.

0:17:560:18:00

We're not going to talk Giants,

we're going to talk Rams.

0:18:000:18:03

There's a really interesting

stat about the Rams.

0:18:030:18:11

They've got a fantastic

road record of 4-0,

0:18:110:18:13

they've travelled over 12,000

miles so far.

0:18:130:18:14

You can see it on the

screen at the moment.

0:18:140:18:17

By the end of the season they'll

have travelled nearly 32

0:18:170:18:19

and a half thousand miles,

Pittsburgh Steelers

0:18:190:18:21

will have the least

in the NFL, just shy of 7000.

0:18:210:18:24

That 32,000 miles.

0:18:240:18:25

That's remarkable, isn't it?

0:18:250:18:26

That is a tremendous

amount of travelling.

0:18:260:18:27

For this team to have

kept it together.

0:18:270:18:29

This young team, to have kept it

together so far, I mean,

0:18:290:18:32

I'm really impressed with the Head

Coach.

0:18:320:18:34

It's because they are

young, like you said.

0:18:340:18:36

Also, they must be

used to travelling.

0:18:360:18:38

A lot of them will have moved to LA,

they don't have a training center

0:18:380:18:41

as such at the moment.

0:18:410:18:46

They are training at the University

but their new camp is being built.

0:18:460:18:49

So I suppose a lot of them are used

to being moved around.

0:18:490:18:52

And that's what I think

that the advantage comes from.

0:18:520:18:55

They are used to being on the road.

0:18:550:18:57

They are used to, kind of,

just being together and figuring it

0:18:570:19:00

out as they move on.

0:19:000:19:01

They don't have to be

in one set area.

0:19:010:19:03

It has to be because they are young.

0:19:030:19:05

We were just talking about this

the other day, like,

0:19:050:19:07

you get off a plane after a six-hour

flight, your legs feel so heavy.

0:19:070:19:11

That's the truth.

0:19:110:19:12

Oh my god.

0:19:120:19:13

So how they keep going out

there and winning after travelling

0:19:130:19:15

all of these miles, it's remarkable.

0:19:150:19:17

And you two turn left on the plane,

as well, the rest of us turn right.

0:19:170:19:21

CHUCKLES

0:19:210:19:22

You mentioned their Head Coach,

this is what happened

0:19:220:19:24

in the locker room after the win

against the Giants,

0:19:240:19:26

here is Head Coach Mcveigh.

0:19:260:19:27

How did we get to this point?

0:19:270:19:29

By taking it one game at a time,

by taking it one day at a time,

0:19:290:19:33

we know we've got a great

Houston Texans team coming back,

0:19:330:19:36

going back to the Colosseum,

let's find a way to get it

0:19:360:19:38

done at home next week.

0:19:380:19:40

Against a very good team.

0:19:400:19:41

All right?

0:19:410:19:42

That's a great team win, man,

we'll keep stacking these blocks,

0:19:420:19:45

6-2 right now, congratulations to

you, guys, continue to take steps.

0:19:450:19:47

Can we get a breakdown.

0:19:470:19:48

CHEERING

0:19:480:19:49

I've never met him,

so I'm going on what I saw

0:19:490:19:53

in the all or nothing documentary,

I'm going on his interviews

0:19:530:19:55

this season, what we see

in the locker room.

0:19:550:19:58

He is relentlessly

positive, isn't he?

0:19:580:19:59

So that must have an effect.

0:19:590:20:00

Doesn't look for excuses,

keeps them up all the time,

0:20:000:20:03

so that must have an effect when it

comes to the travelling,

0:20:030:20:06

as well as how they are playing.

0:20:060:20:07

Yes, I think so, man.

0:20:070:20:09

When you have a coach

who's positive like that,

0:20:090:20:11

keeps on encouraging you,

I think you want to

0:20:110:20:13

play harder for him.

0:20:130:20:14

You kind of don't want

to make any excuses, man,

0:20:140:20:17

but listening to him,

he sounds exactly

0:20:170:20:18

like John Gruden did.

0:20:180:20:20

Young John Gruden.

0:20:200:20:21

He sounds exactly...

0:20:210:20:22

It's uncanny.

0:20:220:20:23

I'm trying to figure out why

he sounds like him, man, it's crazy.

0:20:230:20:26

John Gruden was a young,

successful coach.

0:20:260:20:28

Maybe he watched the film.

0:20:280:20:29

That's what I would have did.

0:20:290:20:38

Just to talk about the Eagles,

as well, we'll be talking a lot

0:20:380:20:41

about the Eagles a lot between now

and the end of the season.

0:20:410:20:44

Every great quarterback

needs a go to receiver,

0:20:440:20:46

and Carson Wentz has that

at the moment with Alshon Jeffery.

0:20:460:20:49

Absolutely.

0:20:490:20:50

And you want a guy you can trust.

0:20:500:20:51

Meaning you want to be able to throw

the ball out there and him to go

0:20:510:20:55

compete for it and to come

down with it.

0:20:550:20:58

And you see on this play,

this is a great pass design.

0:20:580:21:00

You throw it up to a big target.

0:21:000:21:02

This is a big receiver.

0:21:020:21:03

So he has a wide range to catch

the ball, which is very effective

0:21:030:21:07

down in the red zone.

0:21:070:21:08

And when you're talking about a guy

like Alshon Jeffery,

0:21:080:21:10

who with the Chicago Bears

was an absolutely outstanding

0:21:100:21:13

receiver, fell off a little bit,

came to the Philadelphia Eagles

0:21:130:21:15

on a one-year contract,

and he's playing outstanding, man,

0:21:150:21:17

they are going to keep him

there for a very long time.

0:21:170:21:20

He has all the skills.

0:21:200:21:21

Good range, like Jason

said, has good hands,

0:21:210:21:23

he's a great football player.

0:21:230:21:25

Does the one-year contract have

something to do with it,

0:21:250:21:27

in the sense that he is playing

for his future?

0:21:270:21:29

You could say that.

0:21:290:21:30

Oh, it does!

0:21:300:21:31

CHUCKLES

0:21:310:21:32

All right, but I mean

he balled before, so it's not

0:21:320:21:35

like all of a sudden he has shown up

and now he is a baller,

0:21:350:21:39

he balled in Chicago.

0:21:390:21:40

I've never been in a situation

to get that kind of money, you have,

0:21:400:21:43

you know you are balling right now.

0:21:430:21:45

Definitely.

0:21:450:21:46

Stop that.

0:21:460:21:47

He didn't ball in Chicago.

0:21:470:21:48

He all right.

0:21:480:21:49

CHUCKLES

0:21:490:21:50

Our second game comes

from the five-time Super Bowl

0:21:500:21:52

winning Dallas Cowboys.

0:21:520:21:53

Entering the week at 4-3 in the NFC

East, the Cowboys need

0:21:530:21:56

to keep on winning if they've any

chance of staying in touch

0:21:560:21:59

with the high-flying Philadelphia

Eagles.

0:21:590:22:00

Visting AT&T stadium

were Kansas City, who started

0:22:000:22:02

the season in spectacular

fashion at 5-0.

0:22:020:22:04

With 1 win in their past three games

the Chiefs also needed a win

0:22:040:22:07

to maintain their advantage

in the AFC West.

0:22:070:22:09

For a time the Chiefs

rose above the rest.

0:22:090:22:12

A streak led by the fast arm

of Alex Smith and the fast legs

0:22:120:22:17

of Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill.

0:22:170:22:19

Touchdown!

0:22:190:22:20

Kansas City!

0:22:200:22:21

Then two defeats.

0:22:210:22:22

Man the pumps, you Chiefs, there's

a mean hombre coming your way.

0:22:220:22:28

Ezekiel Elliott, while he can,

until his ban, at full tilt.

0:22:280:22:33

This is no comfort zone for Chiefs.

0:22:330:22:35

You're in Cowboy country.

0:22:350:22:43

2nd & 15.

0:22:430:22:50

What a turnaround move by Williams.

0:22:500:22:54

Terrence Williams with the big gain.

0:22:540:22:58

Already with three catches for 43,

setting up the Cowboys 1st & goal,

0:22:580:23:03

over the top they go and it's

caught by Beasley.

0:23:030:23:06

Touchdown Dallas.

0:23:060:23:09

Here is the safety.

0:23:090:23:10

They are going to get a play action.

0:23:100:23:12

Watch the safety in the middle.

0:23:120:23:14

He runs and doubles.

0:23:140:23:17

Dak looks left and has

the patience and poise to get it

0:23:170:23:20

to Beasley over the middle.

0:23:200:23:21

Nelson doesn't realise

he doesn't have help there.

0:23:210:23:28

Harisson Butker's 38 yard field goal

cut the Cowboys' lead to four

0:23:280:23:31

halfway through the second quarter.

0:23:310:23:38

Cowboys hurrying the line.

0:23:380:23:39

Now Dak throws it.

0:23:390:23:40

Wide open.

0:23:400:23:41

It is caught by Williams.

0:23:410:23:46

Right on the sideline.

0:23:460:23:47

And just as you said,

after the catch, so dangerous.

0:23:470:23:50

He takes it all the way

down to the ten.

0:23:500:23:53

Dak backpedals to the 18.

0:23:530:24:02

Got tripped off, still takes off,

and he has got an open

0:24:020:24:05

lane to the end zone.

0:24:050:24:06

Outstanding job.

0:24:060:24:07

Watch Dak.

0:24:070:24:11

He gets just barely nicked right

there and keeps his feet.

0:24:110:24:14

Once he gets going, he's got juice,

and I'll tell you, that little fake,

0:24:140:24:17

holds it inside, and he makes it

that easy for a ten

0:24:170:24:20

yard touchdown run.

0:24:200:24:21

Now Alex is going to have to throw

it 65 yards, almost.

0:24:210:24:24

And he's going to put

his interception streak

0:24:240:24:26

into jeopardy here.

0:24:260:24:27

CHUCKLES

0:24:270:24:28

See if this ball stays

inbounds or goes out.

0:24:280:24:30

You've got six Cowboys,

no, seven Cowboys,

0:24:300:24:32

from the 10-yard line,

back, between the ten

0:24:320:24:34

and the end zone.

0:24:340:24:39

Alex needs to watch.

0:24:390:24:40

There it is to Hill.

0:24:400:24:42

The whole brigade around him.

0:24:420:24:48

Look at Hill go!

0:24:480:24:49

Impossible.

0:24:490:24:50

Touchdown, Kansas City.

0:24:500:24:52

How did they do that?

0:24:520:24:53

Oh, my gosh!

0:24:530:24:57

I've never seen that

in my entire time in football.

0:24:570:25:00

And I promise you,

Jason Garrett hasn't either.

0:25:000:25:02

That is a shocker.

0:25:020:25:10

It's the designed block so you're

going to see the tight ends,

0:25:100:25:13

Kelsey, get up and block.

0:25:130:25:15

Robbins, he actually has two blocks.

0:25:150:25:16

And everyone is trying to play soft.

0:25:160:25:18

You're Dallas, you're

always protecting, right.

0:25:180:25:19

Someone has to make the play.

0:25:190:25:21

I've never seen that

in my entire life.

0:25:210:25:23

Incredible.

0:25:230:25:29

3rd & goal, Kelsey at the top,

wide to the right.

0:25:290:25:32

Hill in a slot on that side.

0:25:320:25:33

Harris is dangerous in the red zone.

0:25:330:25:36

Smith rules out and finds

Kelsey for the touchdown.

0:25:360:25:39

The racing sprint!

0:25:400:25:44

Potato sack race!

0:25:440:25:48

That is fantastic!

0:25:480:25:57

I want to talk about

the rout and the play,

0:25:570:26:00

but I think that

might even be better.

0:26:000:26:02

Watch this.

0:26:020:26:03

Just runs up and runs

the comeback, we call it.

0:26:030:26:06

Which means you come

back to the sideline.

0:26:060:26:08

Cowboys trying to answer right back

after two unanswered touchdowns

0:26:080:26:10

by the Chiefs.

0:26:100:26:11

12th play of the drive,

it's a second goal.

0:26:110:26:16

-- 12th play of the drive,

it's a 2nd & goal.

0:26:160:26:18

Goal line personnel.

0:26:180:26:19

It's Elliott.

0:26:190:26:20

In for the touchdown.

0:26:200:26:22

Watch the line right here.

0:26:220:26:25

Just move Kansas City,

get about eight of them

0:26:250:26:27

down on the ground.

0:26:270:26:28

It's a big boy game and both

of these offences are starting to

0:26:280:26:31

bring it now in the second half.

0:26:310:26:33

1st & goal.

0:26:330:26:34

From the seventh.

0:26:340:26:35

Going out to Beasley.

0:26:350:26:37

Beasley for the pile on!

0:26:370:26:38

Touchdown, Cowboys!

0:26:380:26:44

Dak hits him in stride and is he in?

0:26:440:26:46

That looks in to me.

0:26:460:26:47

And it's his second

touchdown of the game.

0:26:470:26:52

It is 3rd down.

0:26:520:26:53

Same defensive coverage.

0:26:530:26:54

Smith!

0:26:540:26:57

Slammed to the ground

by Taco Charlton.

0:26:570:27:03

Taco Charlton, the first raw pick

they've been wanting.

0:27:030:27:05

It's his first career sack.

0:27:050:27:06

Some moves.

0:27:060:27:08

I'm telling you, he's

been working hard.

0:27:080:27:10

He just

hasn't shown quite that burst yet.

0:27:100:27:12

I'm telling you, right there we're

starting to see signs.

0:27:120:27:15

Beating Schwartz 4th and eight.

0:27:150:27:18

Kansas City feels like we got

the ball game, Jim!

0:27:180:27:21

They're going to need

something here.

0:27:210:27:22

Dallas is going to play aggressive

or soft, we will see.

0:27:220:27:25

Dallas looked a little unorganised

as Kansas City approached the line.

0:27:250:27:28

Smith.

0:27:280:27:29

He is intercepted for

the first time all season!

0:27:290:27:33

It is Heath with the theft.

0:27:330:27:37

It is a big win for the Cowboys.

0:27:370:27:42

Dak knows it.

0:27:420:27:43

Beasley with the touchdown.

0:27:430:27:44

Just keep going to work

and keep showing up.

0:27:440:27:46

And right now Cowboys

five and three.

0:27:460:27:47

Kansas City six and three.

0:27:470:27:49

It was a great performance.

0:27:490:27:57

I mean from offense,

from the defense, special teams,

0:27:570:27:59

from the whole team,

especially that play

0:27:590:28:01

they had at half-time.

0:28:010:28:02

Just to come back for

the second half and

0:28:020:28:04

continue doing the good things

we were doing in the first.

0:28:040:28:06

That was important.

0:28:060:28:07

We were not able to sustain early

and keep our defence

0:28:070:28:10

off the field whatsoever

in the first half.

0:28:100:28:12

And my hat goes off to Dallas

and the job that they did.

0:28:120:28:15

Now we've got to go back and figure

some things out here.

0:28:150:28:18

And do a better job.

0:28:180:28:21

And I wonder whether it is his

defence that he is going to

0:28:210:28:25

have to figure out.

0:28:250:28:26

Because there are some

interesting stats when you

0:28:260:28:27

look at the Kansas City Chiefs.

0:28:270:28:30

And that is if you just

go back a couple

0:28:300:28:32

of years ago...

0:28:320:28:33

Nice graphic.

0:28:330:28:35

It's a nice graphic!

0:28:350:28:36

Defence, seventh ranked in the NFL.

0:28:360:28:37

And their offence

was way down at 27.

0:28:370:28:39

You can see in the last

couple of seasons, the way

0:28:390:28:42

that has changed.

0:28:420:28:43

The offence third-ranked now.

0:28:430:28:44

But the defence, way down at 30.

0:28:440:28:45

And they're doing a terrible job

of stopping the run.

0:28:450:28:48

And there's all kinds

of components to that.

0:28:480:28:50

But one that I look at is always

the defensive backs, and that

0:28:500:28:53

is Eric Berry not being in there.

0:28:530:28:55

He was such a good

defender that they

0:28:550:28:57

could disguise and use certain ways.

0:28:570:28:59

And you know, his injury

is starting to come up.

0:28:590:29:02

You could never underscore

the importance of a guy

0:29:020:29:04

like Eric Berry in a football team.

0:29:040:29:06

I mean, this was the heart

and soul of that defence.

0:29:060:29:08

And besides that, even though

Justin Houston, the

0:29:080:29:10

outstanding defensive man for

the team, is still getting pressure.

0:29:100:29:13

Tamba Hali who was another

outstanding football player, just

0:29:130:29:15

not coming off the injury.

0:29:150:29:16

There are a lot of

guys who just aren't

0:29:160:29:18

creating the pressure.

0:29:180:29:19

So even one player

on the defence can cost a

0:29:190:29:22

whole system, really?

0:29:220:29:23

No question about that.

0:29:230:29:24

Because of the way they use

Eric Berry, they use him in

0:29:240:29:27

coverage and in run support.

0:29:270:29:28

And you see them

struggling in both areas

0:29:280:29:30

right now.

0:29:300:29:31

Let's talk about the Cowboys.

0:29:310:29:32

And Elliott's ban and appeal

continues to go round and

0:29:320:29:34

round and round.

0:29:340:29:35

And he is appealing again.

0:29:350:29:37

If he is eventually

banned, Prescott...

0:29:370:29:38

Or suspended for six games,

Prescott is going to have

0:29:380:29:41

to look at other weapons to help

Dallas go forward in this season.

0:29:410:29:44

So look at Beasley

and look at Bryant.

0:29:440:29:47

Yeah.

0:29:470:29:49

One thing about Cole Beasley,

everybody needs that slot receiver

0:29:490:29:51

that can run what we

call option routs.

0:29:510:29:53

In and out routs, under five yards.

0:29:530:29:59

And it's a specialty position.

0:29:590:30:00

And he's good at that.

0:30:000:30:02

And you're going to

have to use him more

0:30:020:30:04

because you're going to have to get

those short yard throws that

0:30:040:30:07

supplement a run.

0:30:070:30:08

You like that celebration!

0:30:080:30:09

I love that celebration!

0:30:090:30:10

Love the celebration, man.

0:30:100:30:11

Yeah, and you see him here,

another option rout outside.

0:30:110:30:14

These are things you can do that

supplement your run game.

0:30:140:30:16

Quick passes.

0:30:160:30:18

And obviously when you talk

about Dez Bryant, who was one of the

0:30:180:30:21

best receivers in football

for the last couple of years,

0:30:210:30:23

doesn't quite have the numbers this

year as he has

0:30:230:30:25

in years prior.

0:30:250:30:26

But he is a big physical

receiver, goes across the

0:30:260:30:29

middle of the field.

0:30:290:30:30

He's also an emotional leader

of the football team.

0:30:300:30:32

And also in regards to the running

back, Elliott, he is going

0:30:320:30:35

to hurt them, no question.

0:30:350:30:36

This guy is a special player.

0:30:360:30:38

But that offensive line

for the Dallas Cowboys is

0:30:380:30:40

finally starting to play

the way they used to.

0:30:400:30:42

And they're going to put

a running back back there and

0:30:420:30:45

they're going to be OK

running the football.

0:30:450:30:46

They've still got to play

the Eagles twice, the Cowboys.

0:30:460:30:49

They've also got the Falcons,

they've got the Redskins, they've

0:30:490:30:51

got the Raiders.

0:30:510:30:52

They've got the Seahawks.

0:30:520:30:53

Is a play-off spot, given how

dominant the Eagles are, the

0:30:530:30:56

best that the Cowboys can hope for?

0:30:560:31:01

Yes because they can lose

to the Eagles twice.

0:31:010:31:04

The Eagles can stop...

0:31:040:31:05

They're going to force

Dak Prescott to beat them.

0:31:050:31:07

Because they're going

to stop the run.

0:31:070:31:09

Yeah, there's a lot of teams

in their that they can lose

0:31:090:31:11

to.

0:31:110:31:12

That's a really difficult schedule

for the Dallas Cowboys.

0:31:120:31:15

They are young football

team, playing well.

0:31:150:31:16

But that is a tricky schedule.

0:31:160:31:18

A difficult schedule, isn't it?

0:31:180:31:19

Let's take a look at some

of the other week nine games.

0:31:190:31:22

We're going to start

with the Bengals at

0:31:220:31:24

the Jacksonville Jaguars.

0:31:240:31:25

As Jason comments!

0:31:250:31:26

You know, it's...!

0:31:260:31:27

Joe Mixon put the Bengals

on the board with that

0:31:270:31:29

second-quarter touchdown

against the Jaguars.

0:31:290:31:30

Then there was this ridiculous

fight between AJ Green

0:31:300:31:33

and Jalen Ramsey.

0:31:330:31:34

Both players were ejected

and we will talk a little

0:31:340:31:36

bit more on Saturday's show.

0:31:360:31:40

This punt return, 63

yards from Jaydon Mickens

0:31:400:31:43

was the play of the game.

0:31:430:31:45

Special teams.

0:31:450:31:47

Special teams with special

players, you know.

0:31:470:31:49

And that is what you need.

0:31:490:31:50

I mean, you can win two phases,

you're going to win the

0:31:500:31:53

game.

0:31:530:31:54

And they won the special

teams battle.

0:31:540:31:56

The Jaguars go to five and three.

0:31:560:31:58

We will talk more about this game

on Saturday's show as well

0:31:580:32:01

which is on BBC One.

0:32:010:32:02

An NFC South matchup

between the Bucks and the

0:32:020:32:04

inform Saints.

0:32:040:32:06

Special teams again there.

0:32:060:32:08

And this game got nasty as well.

0:32:080:32:11

Jameis Winston poking

Marshown Lattimore.

0:32:110:32:14

And then Mike Evans doing that.

0:32:140:32:17

No time for this in the NFL.

0:32:170:32:19

No time for this.

0:32:190:32:20

He was not ejected,

Mike Evans, although he has

0:32:200:32:22

subsequently received

a one-game ban.

0:32:220:32:25

Sean Peyton absolutely furious

with Evans' behaviour.

0:32:250:32:29

And Ted Ginn caught

Drew Brees 36 yarder.

0:32:290:32:33

It's still run.

0:32:330:32:35

Saints looking good

and they go to six and two.

0:32:350:32:38

The new 49er, Jimmy

Garoppolo was on the

0:32:380:32:40

bench here.

0:32:400:32:43

We didn't see him,

it was just as well.

0:32:430:32:45

Better not put him in that game!

0:32:450:32:47

He would have been

beaten up, I think.

0:32:470:32:50

He might be down for the season!

0:32:500:32:51

Adrian Peterson was

a workhorse for Arizona.

0:32:510:32:53

37 carries.

0:32:530:32:54

159 yards.

0:32:540:32:56

Drew Stanton throwing that

to Jermaine Gresham which

0:32:560:32:59

sealed it for them.

0:32:590:33:01

49ers have NFL's worst record,

they're oh and nine.

0:33:010:33:05

Jay Cutler was back.

0:33:050:33:07

Osi's boy!

0:33:070:33:08

Osi's boy!

0:33:080:33:10

I think you might

live to regret this!

0:33:100:33:14

He found Damian Williams

for a ten yard score.

0:33:140:33:17

Actually put the Dolphins

up early in the second

0:33:170:33:19

quarter against Oakland.

0:33:190:33:21

But Marshawn Lynch was back.

0:33:210:33:23

A couple of touchdowns for him.

0:33:230:33:26

Oakland won 27-24.

0:33:260:33:31

Remember when they used to throw

Skittles on the floor for

0:33:310:33:34

Marshawn Lynch?

0:33:340:33:35

Remember that?

0:33:350:33:36

You remember that?

0:33:360:33:37

No!

0:33:370:33:38

They used to throw Skittles

on the ground when he

0:33:380:33:40

scored because he loved Skittles.

0:33:400:33:41

Right.

0:33:410:33:43

Really cool.

0:33:430:33:44

Now it's all handshakes

in the celebration, yeah.

0:33:440:33:46

Anyhow, we're the next

and Detroit beat Green Bay.

0:33:460:33:48

Brent Huntley struggled again.

0:33:480:33:49

30 points to 70.

0:33:490:33:51

Matt Stafford working

well with Marvin Jones.

0:33:510:33:53

And Detroit go to four and four

and they take on Cleveland

0:33:530:33:57

next.

0:33:570:34:04

Celebrations getting out of hand!

0:34:040:34:05

Jaguars are looking really good.

0:34:050:34:06

Is it their division to lose?

0:34:060:34:08

You would say so right now.

0:34:080:34:09

Obviously with the injury

to Deshaun Watson,

0:34:090:34:11

the Indianapolis Colts

are

0:34:110:34:12

entirely too inconsistent.

0:34:120:34:14

So you would say it

is definitely their

0:34:140:34:15

division to lose.

0:34:150:34:16

They have the best defence.

0:34:160:34:18

Quarterback is still inconsistent.

0:34:180:34:19

But they've got the running

game to cover that up.

0:34:190:34:22

I mean, he is inconsistent,

but he actually did well in this

0:34:220:34:25

game did Blake Bortles.

0:34:250:34:26

Cincinnati said they

were going to go at him.

0:34:260:34:28

But he did enough.

0:34:280:34:30

And I think his confidence is up.

0:34:300:34:32

You know, he doesn't have to win

in games like he used to,

0:34:320:34:35

throwing the ball.

0:34:350:34:41

So I think he is seeing

the field a little

0:34:410:34:43

differently.

0:34:430:34:44

He has calmed down, he understands

what he needs to do to

0:34:440:34:47

win.

0:34:470:34:48

And he is just being more effective.

0:34:480:34:49

And I think that has come

with the change in the offence and

0:34:490:34:53

him just becoming more comfortable.

0:34:530:34:54

Yes, they know right

now Blake Bortles isn't

0:34:540:34:56

going to be the Tom Brady.

0:34:560:34:57

He is not going to do that.

0:34:570:34:59

So they've got to run the football,

play great defence, have him make

0:34:590:35:02

safe throws.

0:35:020:35:03

Nothing dangerous.

0:35:030:35:04

And he is doing that well.

0:35:040:35:06

He is more of a game

manager this year than what

0:35:060:35:08

they asked him to do previously.

0:35:080:35:10

They had no Leonard Fournette

in this game, he was benched for

0:35:100:35:12

violating team orders.

0:35:120:35:13

Which is a big call,

isn't it, when you're in

0:35:130:35:16

the hunt this season?

0:35:160:35:17

That man Tom Coughlin

doesn't play around!

0:35:170:35:19

Tom Coughlin talked so bad to me one

time it scared the life out of me!

0:35:190:35:23

So I know.

0:35:230:35:23

Tom Coughlin probably said,

we're not dealing with this.

0:35:230:35:26

And he checked him, he didn't play.

0:35:260:35:27

Is it easier to do that when you

are, what is his job, executive vice

0:35:270:35:31

president of football rather

than the head coach?

0:35:310:35:33

No question about that, man.

0:35:330:35:34

Because we saw Tom Coughlin,

we saw some people do some

0:35:340:35:37

crazy things!

0:35:370:35:38

We saw Odell Beckham

last year act crazy.

0:35:380:35:40

Me myself, I acted crazy!

0:35:400:35:41

And you know...

0:35:410:35:42

No!

0:35:420:35:43

Did you?!

0:35:430:35:44

Imagine that!

0:35:440:35:45

Imagine that!

0:35:450:35:46

Who would've thought!

0:35:460:35:47

So I mean, now he's out

there but he is starting to

0:35:470:35:50

establish a culture,

starting to establish

0:35:500:35:51

a way of doing things.

0:35:510:35:53

Doug Marrone is his good friend.

0:35:530:35:54

And he is going to do

the right thing.

0:35:540:35:56

Is it going too far to suggest

Jacksonville might be a little bit

0:35:560:36:00

like Denver of a couple of years ago

where Peyton Manning to all intents

0:36:000:36:03

and purposes and his back-ups were

sort of managed through a season?

0:36:030:36:06

And yet their defence won game

after game after game.

0:36:060:36:08

And eventually won

them the Super Bowl.

0:36:080:36:10

That's what you kept

telling me that season.

0:36:100:36:13

Mark, Jacksonville

has a good defence.

0:36:130:36:15

But to compare them

to the Denver Broncos

0:36:150:36:17

defence of two years

ago, absolutely no way.

0:36:170:36:20

They don't have those

kind of players.

0:36:200:36:25

Be very careful, because

this is comparable.

0:36:250:36:27

They are getting

after the quarterback.

0:36:270:36:29

We just didn't think

it was going to be like this because

0:36:290:36:31

there was no Bond Miller.

0:36:310:36:33

They are getting

after the quarterback,

0:36:330:36:34

they're causing turnovers.

0:36:340:36:35

They are running the ball.

0:36:350:36:36

In the play-offs, what do

you need to do when bad

0:36:360:36:39

weather is happening?

0:36:390:36:40

Run the ball, play great defence.

0:36:400:36:41

Are they not doing both of those?

0:36:410:36:43

You know what, Mark,

sometimes when I hear

0:36:430:36:45

politicians talk, I ask myself do

they really believe this, or are

0:36:450:36:48

they just...?

0:36:480:36:49

I'm looking at you, do you really

believe this, or are you

0:36:490:36:52

just talking!

0:36:520:36:53

What do you mean!

0:36:530:36:54

I believe in good defence.

0:36:540:36:55

Oh, my God.

0:36:550:36:56

You're going to compare this

Jacksonville to the Denver Broncos

0:36:560:36:59

that won the Super Bowl!

0:36:590:37:00

That defence?

0:37:000:37:01

You can't shoot down my

man's total comment.

0:37:010:37:03

It made sense to me.

0:37:030:37:04

Mark, it's cool.

0:37:040:37:05

Very, very quickly,

and we are going to do more

0:37:050:37:08

Saints-Bucks on Saturday night as I

say, but the Saints have got their

0:37:080:37:11

defence working, we said before,

their special team's delivered as

0:37:110:37:14

well.

0:37:140:37:16

And the Bucks are faltering,

but you've still got to beat them?

0:37:160:37:19

Saints have turned it around,

defence is playing well.

0:37:190:37:21

My buddy Aaron Glenn,

coaching the deep

0:37:210:37:22

backfield.

0:37:220:37:23

Of course he's your buddy!

0:37:230:37:25

He taught me how to play corner.

0:37:250:37:26

Playing outstanding football, man.

0:37:260:37:27

Winning every single phase,

offence, defence, special

0:37:270:37:29

teams.

0:37:290:37:30

Your phone must have the biggest

memory possible for all the

0:37:300:37:33

friends you claim you have!

0:37:330:37:34

It's right here, ready!

0:37:340:37:35

So many contacts in it!

0:37:350:37:37

Now for our final game.

0:37:370:37:38

The tale of the two

quarterbacks, both of whom have

0:37:380:37:41

been the bridesmaid,

but so far, never the bride.

0:37:410:37:43

In the last two Super Bowls,

Matt Ryan and Cam Newton

0:37:430:37:46

have seen the Lombardi trophy slip

painfully from ther grasp.

0:37:460:37:49

As Super Bowl hangovers go,

it's last season's losers

0:37:490:37:52

Atlanta who are struggling

the most entering the game

0:37:520:37:54

at 4-3.

0:37:540:37:58

Facing NFC South divisional

rivals Carolina,

0:37:580:38:02

this match-up is what

we call a 6-pointer!

0:38:020:38:04

Was that Harrison?

0:38:040:38:08

Trying to call Matt Ryan,

but he gave me the number!

0:38:080:38:10

We join this one with

Atlanta already 3-nil up.

0:38:100:38:13

We join this one with

Atlanta already 3-nil up.

0:38:130:38:20

COMMENTARY: Stewart

gets it on first down.

0:38:200:38:24

Still going near

the 40, ball is out.

0:38:240:38:28

That ball ripped away,

Stewart going for extra yardage.

0:38:280:38:33

Keanu Neal comes in.

0:38:330:38:36

A second year safety.

0:38:360:38:38

They stand him up and just

rip it right out of his

0:38:380:38:41

hands.

0:38:410:38:44

Ryan, slings it past.

0:38:440:38:46

Touchdown, Sanu.

0:38:460:38:49

And a touchdown for Mohamed Sanu,

his third of the year.

0:38:490:38:56

1st & goal from the fourth.

0:38:560:39:01

McCaffrey, a walk in.

0:39:010:39:03

Touchdown.

0:39:030:39:04

How about that pitch by Cam Newton?

0:39:040:39:06

That's not easy to do.

0:39:060:39:10

22, McCaffrey, as he takes off.

0:39:100:39:12

And Cam Newton, I mean,

with a flick of the

0:39:120:39:15

wrist, he puts it on the money.

0:39:150:39:16

Left-handed, that's not that easy.

0:39:160:39:22

Over the middle,

intercepted by Adams.

0:39:220:39:25

The receiver fell

down, Adams did not.

0:39:250:39:29

He is inside the 40.

0:39:290:39:31

And Gabriel there to force him out.

0:39:310:39:35

And it is the Carolina Panthers,

get their fourth pick of the year.

0:39:350:39:39

Nothing Matt Ryan can

really do about this.

0:39:390:39:41

He's trying to get to Hooper.

0:39:410:39:42

He thinks Hooper's going to cross

the face of Mike Adams.

0:39:420:39:45

And I don't know, as

Hooper looks back for

0:39:450:39:47

the ball, I don't know if he just

doesn't really realise that Adams

0:39:470:39:50

was driving.

0:39:500:39:53

But as the quarterback,

you're expecting the receiver to

0:39:530:39:55

always cross in front

of the defender.

0:39:550:39:59

Adams gets a great jump on the ball.

0:39:590:40:01

He undercuts it and now Carolina has

an opportunity to tie

0:40:010:40:11

this before the half, if not more.

0:40:110:40:13

Newton hangs in.

0:40:130:40:14

Flushed out to his right.

0:40:140:40:15

Can he get there?

0:40:150:40:16

Ball is out.

0:40:160:40:17

Recovered.

0:40:170:40:18

Touchdown.

0:40:180:40:21

Before that ball

was out, the call was

0:40:210:40:23

touchdown.

0:40:230:40:26

Merson got on top of it,

but let's take another look at the

0:40:260:40:28

very end.

0:40:280:40:30

The ball, yes, it's out.

0:40:300:40:35

And it's across before it comes out.

0:40:350:40:42

STUDIO: Graham Gano

nailed this field ball to

0:40:420:40:44

give the Panthers a 7-point

lead early in the third.

0:40:440:40:50

And after the Falcons were stopped

on the following possession, he went

0:40:500:40:53

over again from 45 yards

to extend the lead to ten.

0:40:530:41:00

COMMENTARY: So their

biggest 3rd and eight of

0:41:000:41:02

the game.

0:41:020:41:03

And Julio Jones is on the sideline.

0:41:030:41:07

Just got it away.

0:41:070:41:09

Sanu breaks one tackle,

can't break another.

0:41:090:41:14

Taylor Gabriel, rather, and that's

going to bring up fourth down

0:41:140:41:17

as he took it just inside the 40.

0:41:170:41:19

And the Falcons are

forced to go for it.

0:41:190:41:22

Julio Jones at the top

of the screen.

0:41:220:41:25

Soft coverage.

0:41:250:41:29

Ryan out all alone,

juggled, incomplete!

0:41:290:41:34

Jones wide-open!

0:41:340:41:37

And dropped it.

0:41:370:41:41

I mean, they just

will never be easier.

0:41:410:41:43

Opportunity missed for

Ryan Jones and Atlanta.

0:41:430:41:52

Pass...

0:41:520:41:53

Broken up.

0:41:530:41:56

Pontius was the target.

0:41:560:41:57

Good defence by Robert Alford.

0:41:570:42:01

Looked like he had Pontius

there for a second.

0:42:010:42:04

And he just drives

on that ball and made a

0:42:040:42:07

good play, extending out,

left arm, knocks it down.

0:42:070:42:09

That's great coverage.

0:42:090:42:14

First down, here is Gabriel.

0:42:140:42:16

Makes a spin move.

0:42:160:42:17

Uses that speed.

0:42:170:42:24

Out of bounds, nearly 20.

0:42:240:42:26

If Atlanta can score quick,

they don't have to bother

0:42:260:42:29

with an onside kick drop.

0:42:290:42:30

Gabriel in the middle,

two safeties deep.

0:42:300:42:34

Coleman out on the edge,

he gets a block.

0:42:340:42:37

Coleman, touchdown, Atlanta!

0:42:370:42:38

They're back in it.

0:42:380:42:42

Here is the 3rd and nine.

0:42:420:42:46

Newton.

0:42:460:42:47

Throws.

0:42:470:42:48

Pass.

0:42:480:42:49

Broken up.

0:42:490:42:50

No flags on the place.

0:42:500:42:52

Samuel the target.

0:42:520:42:54

Defending was Robert Alford

who we saw limp away last time he

0:42:540:42:57

was out there.

0:42:570:42:58

And it's four down.

0:42:580:43:00

Two minutes left.

0:43:000:43:03

2nd and 13.

0:43:030:43:06

Pass is too short for Julio Jones.

0:43:060:43:11

Julio Jones at the top

of the screen.

0:43:110:43:14

Hard to believe they're

going to run underneath him.

0:43:140:43:23

On third down.

0:43:230:43:24

Ryan.

0:43:240:43:25

Chased by Davis.

0:43:250:43:26

Pass, incomplete, fourth down.

0:43:260:43:30

Just the pressure and Matt Ryan

trying to keep the play

0:43:300:43:33

alive, get outside the pocket.

0:43:330:43:35

Awfully good coverage

by the Carolina defence.

0:43:350:43:37

And here it is.

0:43:370:43:47

4th down and 13.

0:43:490:43:52

Ryan.

0:43:520:43:53

Passes...

0:43:530:43:55

Incomplete for Gabriel.

0:43:550:43:59

And the Panthers takeover.

0:43:590:44:03

And the final, 20-17,

the Carolina Panthers beat

0:44:030:44:04

the Atlanta Falcons.

0:44:040:44:07

My gut feeling is we missed

some opportunities.

0:44:070:44:09

On all sides of the ball.

0:44:090:44:12

I thought we did some

really good things.

0:44:120:44:14

I thought we showed

what we could potentially become.

0:44:140:44:17

And I thought some guys gave

some great individual

0:44:170:44:19

efforts.

0:44:190:44:21

One thing that stuck with me

was when the Panthers are

0:44:210:44:23

emotionless.

0:44:230:44:24

That's when we...

0:44:240:44:27

Good things don't happen.

0:44:270:44:30

So, whether you've got

to fake it, whether

0:44:300:44:33

you've got to do whatever you've got

to do, if we can get the Bank of

0:44:330:44:37

America Stadium with a pulse that's

when we are at our best.

0:44:370:44:39

That's all I was trying to do.

0:44:390:44:42

Doesn't matter when you get

your points or how you

0:44:420:44:44

get your points,

you've got to get them.

0:44:440:44:46

We haven't been very good

situationally, or as good as we've

0:44:460:44:49

needed to be situationally.

0:44:490:44:52

They dress differently,

those two quarterbacks, don't they?

0:44:520:44:54

They do.

0:44:540:44:56

I thought Cam was

looking good there,

0:44:560:44:58

actually.

0:44:580:44:59

More on Cam Newton and the Panthers

on Saturday, as well.

0:44:590:45:01

If you'd have got

hold of Matt Ryan, as

0:45:010:45:03

we were going in.

0:45:030:45:05

Tried.

0:45:050:45:05

You tried, would you have

said to him, what on

0:45:050:45:08

earth are you doing with your

offense this season?

0:45:080:45:10

Yes, I would have

needed some insight.

0:45:100:45:17

I'm sympathetic because I know it

takes about a year for them to kind

0:45:170:45:21

of grasp the offense.

0:45:210:45:22

But you can't blame the drops

and the missed throws

0:45:220:45:24

on no grasp with the offense.

0:45:240:45:26

I mean, they had opportunities

and they didn't make them.

0:45:260:45:28

Individual errors?

0:45:280:45:29

Individual errors and collectively,

as a team, that Super

0:45:290:45:32

Bowl hangover is real.

0:45:320:45:33

I'm telling you, man.

0:45:330:45:34

Things like this happen to teams.

0:45:340:45:36

Once you go into a Super Bowl,

you don't win it, the next

0:45:360:45:39

season you just,

kind of, fall apart.

0:45:390:45:41

I didn't think this would happen

to the Atlanta Falcons.

0:45:410:45:43

I thought their leadership

was a lot stronger.

0:45:430:45:45

But they are not firing

on all cylinders at all.

0:45:450:45:49

Julio Jones, as this ball

flies through the air

0:45:490:45:51

towards him, cannot be

thinking we missed our

0:45:510:45:53

opportunity last season.

0:45:530:45:54

But Julio gets a pass

because he is making so many

0:45:540:45:56

great place for them.

0:45:560:45:59

-- great plays for them.

0:45:590:46:02

I'm just not even going to say

anything about this one.

0:46:020:46:04

He can have this one.

0:46:040:46:06

It's a mistake.

0:46:060:46:07

OK, yes, he's made a tonne

of plays, but this is what

0:46:070:46:09

your playmakers have to do.

0:46:090:46:11

When things aren't

going right, you've

0:46:110:46:12

got to come down with a big play,

kind of get that offense rolling,

0:46:120:46:15

get you back on track.

0:46:150:46:18

I mean, if you look at the stats,

they were last year's leading

0:46:180:46:21

offense, they scored an average 33.8

points per game.

0:46:210:46:24

They are 17th in points

scored this season.

0:46:240:46:26

21.3 points per game.

0:46:260:46:27

They are ninth in passing yards.

0:46:270:46:29

They are 15th in rushing yards.

0:46:290:46:30

Coaching is important.

0:46:300:46:31

You just cannot understate

the importance of

0:46:310:46:34

a guy like Shanahan,

who was an outstanding

0:46:340:46:36

offensive coordinator,

was in tune with what that offense

0:46:360:46:39

was going to do.

0:46:390:46:40

It was his offense.

0:46:400:46:41

You replace him with Sarkisian,

you have this guy trying to run

0:46:410:46:45

the exact same offense there,

the one Shanahan was

0:46:450:46:47

running, it's just not working.

0:46:470:46:48

And that's the key right there.

0:46:480:46:49

He's trying to run

an offense that isn't

0:46:490:46:51

his, a quarterback is trying to hear

it from a guy who is not the same

0:46:510:46:55

guy, it's all a mess.

0:46:550:46:56

OK, let's take a look

at the standings before we

0:46:560:46:59

leave you today.

0:46:590:47:01

We will have highlights

of Seattle's trip to Arizona.

0:47:360:47:39

We'll also preview

the remaining week ten games.

0:47:390:47:41

You can also catch

the show on the iPlayer.

0:47:410:47:43

We've done a whole show

without doing a Cleveland joke,

0:47:430:47:45

so let's rectify that.

0:47:450:47:49

CHUCKLES

0:47:490:47:56

Entering the second half

of the season, coaches have

0:47:560:47:58

been doing their best

to downplay playoff optimism.

0:47:580:48:07

Now, with many at this stage

stating their winning

0:48:070:48:09

records count for nothing,

Cleveland's Hue Jackson is just

0:48:090:48:11

grateful that his 0-8

record has been trumped

0:48:110:48:13

by San Francisco's 0-9 record.

0:48:130:48:15

You can always rely on bye week

to raise optimism in Cleveland.

0:48:150:48:17

Oh, man.

0:48:170:48:18

Good night.

0:48:180:48:23

There is the long-term goal to go

to Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII,

0:48:230:48:26

but think too far ahead,

think of tomorrow,

0:48:260:48:31

and today can up-end you.

0:48:310:48:34

Problems to be solved right now,

grand plans to lay, gaps to be

0:48:340:48:38

filled, a lasting rhythm to find,

striking the balance.

0:48:380:48:40

Mind games, power

games, football games.

0:48:400:48:41

Only in the NFL.

0:48:410:48:48

It is week nine of the NFL season and Mark Chapman, two-time Super Bowl winner Osi Umenyiora and former NFL corner Jason Bell run through extended highlights from the weekend's action.

Entering the second half of the season teams across the AFC and NFC division are pushing for those valuable play-off positions. The pick of the action comes with the Denver Broncos heading to the high-flying Philadelphia Eagles.
