CHEERING

Unbelievable.

Unstoppable.

0:00:220:00:38

Hello and welcome to NFL This Week.

0:00:380:00:40

11 weeks in now and some

things are clear as day,

0:00:400:00:43

like New England and Pittsburgh

controlling the AFC

0:00:430:00:45

but over in the NFC,

0:00:450:00:46

Philadelphia, Minnesota, New Orleans

and the LA Rams all lead their

0:00:460:00:49

divisions, which comes as a surprise

0:00:490:00:50

as they all failed to

make the playoffs last year.

0:00:500:00:53

Joining me for the ride once again

is two-time Super Bowl

0:00:530:00:58

winner Osi Umenyiora and former

NFL corner Jason Bell.

0:00:580:01:03

What are you doing?

0:01:030:01:05

As a head coach, start the season

with two losses and you'll be

0:01:050:01:08

lucky to get a table

at your favourite restaurant.

0:01:080:01:10

However, following up two losses

with seven consecutive wins

0:01:100:01:13

and the Saints' Sean Payton no doubt

has restaurateurs across

0:01:130:01:15

New Orleans lining up to seat him

at their establishment.

0:01:150:01:17

The Saints' revival this year has

hallmarks of their 2009 Super Bowl

0:01:170:01:20

winning season as they look for win

number eight against

0:01:200:01:23

a tricky Washington Redskins.

0:01:230:01:31

The start was anything but simple.

0:01:310:01:33

That's how you close a team out.

0:01:330:01:34

A hellish pair of defeats.

0:01:340:01:39

The lights have a habit

of going out in the

0:01:390:01:42

Super Dome and this could have been

a fresh plunge into the darkness.

0:01:420:01:46

But a rebuild is in

the soul of New Orleans

0:01:460:01:49

and the Saints have been

on

0:01:490:01:51

a one-way route march ever since.

0:01:510:01:53

Seven straight wins.

0:01:530:01:57

The fight from this team

to take it to the next level.

0:01:570:02:01

A pair of campaign veterans

and a pair of running backs.

0:02:010:02:04

Kamara has some running

room, and he will score.

0:02:040:02:10

Saints, it seems, come in pairs.

0:02:100:02:13

And how will all be

Washington Redskins

0:02:130:02:15

come into Louisiana?

Singularly resilient.

0:02:150:02:21

And armed with Cousens.

0:02:210:02:23

COMMENTATOR: 3rd down and six,

Thompson, touchdown!

0:02:290:02:33

Jamison Crowder, he comes up

and he is able to pick off Bell.

0:02:330:02:37

That opens Chris Thompson,

who split out with a

0:02:370:02:44

wheel route, and that is easy

pickings, right there.

0:02:440:02:49

Ingram, what a move,

Ingram,

0:02:490:02:50

touchdown New Orleans.

0:02:500:02:54

They have been able to get

through this Redskins defense in the

0:02:540:02:57

middle when they have run the ball.

0:02:570:03:01

Great job by that offensive line.

0:03:010:03:03

Can he get it in?

0:03:030:03:05

Yes, touchdown Washington.

0:03:050:03:08

That is your center,

who comes out and makes a nice clean

0:03:080:03:13

block right there in the hole.

0:03:130:03:17

So now they give

Nick Rose is a chance

0:03:170:03:20

to see if he can come away

with three points for them.

0:03:200:03:23

And this just became more difficult.

0:03:230:03:27

REFEREE:

False start,

number 92, offense.

0:03:270:03:28

That is against Stacy McGeoch.

0:03:280:03:36

That is against Stacy McGeoch.

0:03:360:03:38

And if he was a lesser

player I'm not sure if

0:03:440:03:46

he would see the field again.

0:03:460:03:48

Wil Lutz capitalise on Washington's

blunder with this field goal.

0:03:480:03:56

Out to his left, can he run for it?

0:03:560:04:00

No as he gets hit by Vonn Bell.

0:04:000:04:02

Thompson is down.

0:04:020:04:03

They have got both

of their best offensive

0:04:030:04:08

They have got both

of their best offensive

0:04:080:04:10

They have got both

of their best offensive

0:04:100:04:13

Thompson, gets rolled up.

Looks like

they are going to be doing without

0:04:140:04:18

them for the rest of the year. Big

punt and a 1st down Gary bya

0:04:180:04:24

Marshall. Paul, grounded. How about

that? Redskins need yards to try a

0:04:240:04:31

field goal. The pass all along and

the walking touchdown for

0:04:310:04:36

Washington.

Cousens hangs in a

pocket. And that is a great job by

0:04:360:04:47

Kirk Cousins.

A 42 yard field goal

cut the Saints' deficit early in the

0:04:470:04:56

fourth quarter.

Jeremy Spring or

getting his first touchdown of the

0:04:560:05:07

year.

He has put the dagger into New

Orleans. They just completely turned

0:05:070:05:14

them and there was no biggie within

15 yards. Drew Brees. Touchdown for

0:05:140:05:22

Wil Lutz. 2.5 brunette. The extra

point returns it to one possession

0:05:220:05:29

game. This is the game right here.

They either make a key stop or they

0:05:290:05:34

run this clock out. It doesn't go.

Came through and made the stop for a

0:05:340:05:44

loss of one, and there is hope here

in New Orleans for the Saints. One

0:05:440:05:47

minute 53 left for Drew Brees. Drew

Brees. The pass is picked. But a

0:05:470:05:58

flag on the player. If it is against

the Washington Redskins the game is

0:05:580:06:01

still alive and it is against

Washington.

0:06:010:06:06

REFEREE:

Hands of the face, number

29. Automatic 1st down.

Kendall

0:06:060:06:15

Fuller called for illegal hands to

the face and he came away with an

0:06:150:06:18

interception after that. It wipes

away what would have been

0:06:180:06:22

essentially a game ending

interception. Drew Brees with a

0:06:220:06:26

season high of 367 yards. Breeze.

Come on. Touchdown, after a juggle.

0:06:260:06:45

But it doesn't mean anything every

Saints don't convert the drive.

0:06:450:06:52

Looking for a block.

CHEERING

0:06:520:07:01

The quick throw, not there. Cousins

and crowd are not on the same page

0:07:010:07:09

and Saints screaming for an

intentional grounding and they are

0:07:090:07:12

going to give it to him.

REFEREE:

Ten yards penalty.

There is

0:07:120:07:20

nobody like that out here.

These

guys are running slants, they bring

0:07:200:07:25

pressure of the age. And there is

nobody around.

0:07:250:07:31

REFEREE:

Please reset the clock to

18 seconds.

They forgot to run the

0:07:310:07:36

ten seconds off. They will now. And

only 18 seconds remain. And down

0:07:360:07:42

goes cousins! Knocked out by Vonn

Bell, and moving on to overtime.

0:07:420:07:52

Cousins does not see the Blitz

coming off his blindside.

Wil Lutz

0:07:520:08:00

is thinking about what is the gum,

Mark Ingram now over 100 yards for

0:08:000:08:04

his game.

And Atos to Ingram.

Gets

the block, Hall cannot bring him

0:08:040:08:14

down. And down to the ten, 31 he

yards the Mark Ingram.

We're looking

0:08:140:08:21

at 28 yard game-winning field for

Wil Lutz. What a game! The Saints

0:08:210:08:28

have won it.

Playing better in some

areas but I wouldn't have said, if

0:08:280:08:34

you'd asked the question if we are

really good team, we didn't look

0:08:340:08:37

like it for two thirds of that game.

It we came out to a hostile

0:08:370:08:45

environment against a team that has

won seven and zero, but we are

0:08:450:08:48

getting close.

Be have the

confidence here to win in a lot of

0:08:480:08:54

different ways. We have got the

personnel to do it, the right

0:08:540:08:57

attitude to do it.

0:08:570:09:03

What an amazing comeback

by New Orleans.

0:09:030:09:05

In their 51-year history they've

never rallied from a 15-point

0:09:050:09:09

deficit in the fourth quarter.

0:09:090:09:10

They're also the first team in NFL

history to lose their first two

0:09:100:09:13

games and then win the next eight.

0:09:130:09:15

Osi is going to take us

through what is giving

0:09:150:09:17

New Orleans the edge.

0:09:170:09:22

The New Orleans Saints are on an

eight-game winning streak. They have

0:09:220:09:27

all of them calibre quarterback and

a head coach who understands how to

0:09:270:09:31

get the ball into the hands of his

playmaker Andy does this in a

0:09:310:09:34

variety of ways and I'm going to

show you some other ways he does it.

0:09:340:09:38

The first thing is what

0:09:380:09:38

show you some other ways he does it.

The first thing is what we like to

0:09:380:09:41

call a screen. What is a screen, you

may ask? It is essentially windy

0:09:410:09:47

quarterback is going to dump the

board of the running back, the

0:09:470:09:49

opposite line are going to pretend,

they are going to pretend to block

0:09:490:09:54

them released down the field,

essentially set him up, you guessed

0:09:540:09:58

it, a screen in front of the running

back to run behind. This is an

0:09:580:10:03

incredible player. You look at the

offensive lineman, he's coming to

0:10:030:10:08

the outside, you see the pretend

block then they run down the field

0:10:080:10:11

and Alban Camara is going to do the

rest. This is what a great head

0:10:110:10:15

coach does, he gets the border is

running backs and let them be

0:10:150:10:18

outstanding athletes, and make

plays. Take a look at the offensive

0:10:180:10:24

lineman right here to set this up

perfectly. He's going to go to the

0:10:240:10:29

outside, then boom, released to the

outside and will see Wil Lutz do the

0:10:290:10:37

rest. Great running back and great

coaching, getting the ball to your

0:10:370:10:41

playmakers. The new Orleans Saints

have been doing this with Sean

0:10:410:10:46

Payton for a number of years. Back

in the day they had a guy called

0:10:460:10:50

Reggie Bush, this was before they

were trying to make America great

0:10:500:10:52

again! And if you watching right

here, the screened are going to run

0:10:520:10:58

here is called a halfback slip

screen and what his wing to do is

0:10:580:11:02

released not to the outside but

diddy inside. The offensive lineman

0:11:020:11:06

are going to do the exact same thing

and pretend to block them released

0:11:060:11:10

down the field, giving him space to

get to the end zone. Reggie Wilson

0:11:100:11:17

is an incredible football player.

Look at the offensive lineman in

0:11:170:11:20

front of him, setting up the screen

and you see him doing the rest.

0:11:200:11:23

Great football player, great

coaching again by the New Orleans

0:11:230:11:29

Saints. Last but not least, one of

the great things great offensive

0:11:290:11:33

coordinator or head coach will do,

he will also put his running back in

0:11:330:11:37

a position to expose a linebacker.

In this right here, this is crazy,

0:11:370:11:44

this is incredible. This guy right

here is responsible for Alvin

0:11:440:11:49

Kamara. He's one of the great

athletes on the field. There is no

0:11:490:11:52

way a linebacker will be able to

cover him in space. If I'm a

0:11:520:11:56

defensive coordinator, what I am

doing is rather than allowing him to

0:11:560:12:00

dictate, I'm going to blitz this guy

right here. Because you know he's

0:12:000:12:05

responsible for him he will now have

to stay in and block but Redskins

0:12:050:12:08

don't do that. They let Alban Camara

come right up through the middle of

0:12:080:12:14

the field, put him in a one on one

situation and the linebacker has no

0:12:140:12:19

chance. He gives him a real shake

and they can gets into the end zone

0:12:190:12:24

again. You are going to seeing him

go through the middle of the field.

0:12:240:12:29

Doing a little shape, the option

rout, still finds a way to get the

0:12:290:12:37

job done. New Orleans Saints, Sean

Penkywicz outstanding offensive

0:12:370:12:42

coordinator and head coach, and they

came with the job done.

Given that

0:12:420:12:47

he showed how they did this with

Reggie Bush, teams will be on their

0:12:470:12:51

guard to know what he likes to do,

and how they like to play, and at

0:12:510:12:55

the moment they are unstoppable.

Washington did the decent job

0:12:550:13:00

stopping this green gang, but like

we said before, when you have Drew

0:13:000:13:04

Brees, he can win you games, and he

did. And on that play highlighted it

0:13:040:13:10

was the third string against a

linebacker.

We touched on this

0:13:100:13:15

before, was it the trade of Adrian

Peterson to the Cardinals operate on

0:13:150:13:19

the Saints that revitalised and

revolutionise their season and

0:13:190:13:26

improved things? Eugh! It is the way

that they have been playing over the

0:13:260:13:29

course of the season. You don't want

to have too many chefs in the

0:13:290:13:32

kitchen.

Granted, they are running

the football and powering it down

0:13:320:13:39

their throat, you only need two

running backs to do that and they

0:13:390:13:42

are executing that to perfection.

You had guys that are thinking that

0:13:420:13:48

what is my role now that Adrian

Peterson is not there, but now it is

0:13:480:13:54

like, I am a guy that needed it.

When we look at some other teams

0:13:540:13:59

later on in the show, the biggest

thing it feels like for the Saints

0:13:590:14:02

now is that they are not just Drew

Brees.

Absolutely. That is what

0:14:020:14:08

makes them so scary. They can score

with these running backs and draw

0:14:080:14:12

the screens, but if he needs the

win, he can make every throw.

0:14:120:14:19

A reminder there's a Thanksgiving

special show with the Chuckle

0:14:190:14:22

Brothers this Saturday after Match

of the Day where they're

0:14:220:14:24

joined by a specal guest.

0:14:240:14:29

No, he's not going to be there!

What

position do you want to play? I want

0:14:290:14:35

to be quarterback, I want to be the

dictator. That is what I would like

0:14:350:14:39

to have been.

0:14:390:14:44

You can see more of that

and highlights of the Thanksgiving

0:14:440:14:48

games at 11.45pm this Saturday

after Match of the Day on BBC One.

0:14:480:14:56

Can the goal that? -- can we draw a

line under that.

0:14:560:15:04

Right let's take a look at some

of the other week 11 games.

0:15:040:15:08

By the second quarter the Broncos

led by seven. Finding Ericson from

0:15:080:15:14

29 yards. AJ Green caught another

daughter touchdown pass in the

0:15:140:15:17

fourth quarter

0:15:170:15:18

daughter touchdown pass in the

fourth quarter to stretch it to

0:15:180:15:19

daughter touchdown pass in the

fourth quarter to stretch it to

0:15:190:15:19

pinpoint. The Broncos were on their

worst run since the early 90s.

0:15:190:15:33

That same person could have done the

job for Buffalo. Nathan Peterman

0:15:340:15:39

over Tyrod Taylor starting. He took

five pics inside the first half. LA

0:15:390:15:53

scored 54/78 points. They go to four

and six and they are starting to

0:15:530:16:00

look slick. Talking of slick, the

Giants seem to be back, against the

0:16:000:16:07

Chiefs in New Jersey. Only touchdown

of the game in the second quarter.

0:16:070:16:11

The kicks were crucial. This 23 yard

goal tied it at the end of the third

0:16:110:16:16

quarter and then in overtime watch

this for a catch from the Giants'

0:16:160:16:20

Roger Lewis.

That is how you get a

free state dinner in New York!

You

0:16:200:16:28

have never had a free state dinner

in New York! The Giants winning, the

0:16:280:16:33

Chiefs have lost again. Jamie

Swinson was out for the Bucs. Jay

0:16:330:16:40

Cutler channelled his inner Nathan

Peterman. He threw three first-half

0:16:400:16:44

pics. Fitzpatrick had a good game. A

six yard pass to Howard to put them

0:16:440:16:53

13-7 up. Even the entrance of Matt

Moore 's could not save Miami. That

0:16:530:17:00

fumble sealed it for Tampa Bay.

0:17:000:17:10

The international series ended with

a New England Fiesta against Oakland

0:17:100:17:13

in Mexico City, Tom Brady putting

Dion Lewis in from 15 yards in the

0:17:130:17:19

first quarter. It was 17-0 at

half-time. Tom Brady found Brandon

0:17:190:17:28

cooks in the third quarter.

It is

very difficult to breed out there.

0:17:280:17:36

The altitude is nasty.

New England

are flying in the AFC, which cannot

0:17:360:17:43

be said for Kansas City whose form

has fallen off a cliff. Why?

0:17:430:17:53

be said for Kansas City whose form

has fallen off a cliff. Why?

0:17:530:17:56

They are not able to run the

football effectively. Offensively

0:17:590:18:02

they are an mess.

He is not an

all-weather quarterback will stop

0:18:020:18:09

what do you mean?

0:18:090:18:10

all-weather quarterback will stop

what do you mean? He cannot play in

0:18:100:18:13

different elements. There was a lot

of wind out there and he was off

0:18:130:18:17

with his throws and you have to be

able to play in all-weather.

Have

0:18:170:18:23

the defense of worked out some of

the weapons available to him and

0:18:230:18:27

nullified them and put the pressure

on him?

Take away the big game

0:18:270:18:33

receiver and you force essentially

Alex Smith to be the guy to beat

0:18:330:18:36

you. Over a long period of time he

will not be able to do that.

We

0:18:360:18:42

spent some time over the month

praising the Bills and now we are

0:18:420:18:46

going to criticise them heavily. Why

bench Tyrone Taylor and bring in a

0:18:460:18:51

rookie in Nathan Peterman who had

one of the worst first halves

0:18:510:18:57

quarterback has had?

I have no idea

what he was thinking. They are not

0:18:570:19:04

playing good on defense. It was not

that Tyrone Taylor all of a sudden

0:19:040:19:09

started losing them games. He did

not turn the ball over.

Coming into

0:19:090:19:16

this game only four quarterbacks

have thrown ten plus touchdowns this

0:19:160:19:20

season. Brady, Smith, Rogers and

Taylor. He also has the lowest

0:19:200:19:28

interceptions for quarterbacks,

Tyrone Taylor, he is a safe pair of

0:19:280:19:30

hands.

No question about that. That

is why I like the call. He tried to

0:19:300:19:39

outsmart himself in starting a

rookie quarterback against a team he

0:19:390:19:42

had no business playing against.

That is one of the hardest defenses

0:19:420:19:46

for a quarterback to make his debut

in?

They are like, are you going to

0:19:460:19:53

do that against us? We will show

you, you will pay.

And that is what

0:19:530:19:58

they did. Tyrone Taylor might not be

that future for this franchise under

0:19:580:20:02

me and I want to see what else we

have. But surely you have got to

0:20:020:20:07

judge the opposition before throwing

someone in? That could ruin a kid's

0:20:070:20:10

career.

Especially a rookie

quarterback and you do not want to

0:20:100:20:16

put him in a position where he goes

out and failed ethically. Now he

0:20:160:20:20

will have to live with this for the

rest of the season and the code

0:20:200:20:23

also.

0:20:230:20:23

rest of the season

and the code also.

0:20:230:20:25

The people of Dallas talk fondly

about the house that

0:20:250:20:28

owner Jerry Jones built.

0:20:280:20:29

Each week 80,000 people

make their way to "Jerry World"

0:20:290:20:31

in hope of adding to their five

Super Bowls, however the NFC

0:20:310:20:34

East has a new force,

one that heads to Dallas with enough

0:20:340:20:37

power to level the house.

0:20:370:20:38

It's the form team 8-1

Philadelphia Eagles

0:20:380:20:40

at the 5-4 Dallas Cowboys.

0:20:400:20:50

Ready to receive. Philadelphia won

the toss and this should be an

0:20:500:20:57

exciting one from Texas. The 3-yard

line.

0:20:570:21:03

Gets to midfield and finally the

kicker is able to knock them down at

0:21:100:21:14

the 35-yard line. Jake Elliott saves

the day. A 61 yard return by the

0:21:140:21:20

rookie switcher.

Mike Nugent had a 48 yard field

0:21:200:21:27

goal.

0:21:270:21:31

He makes the catch.

One foot down.

It is in.

A 22 yard gain. Back to

0:21:360:21:46

the ground they go. He is in for the

touchdown.

The linebacker is going

0:21:460:21:53

to shoot into the gap. Watch the way

he adjusts. The linebacker is going

0:21:530:21:58

to hit him in the mouth. He bounced

around to Marcus Lawrence.

Nugent's

0:21:580:22:05

27 yard goal cut the Eagles' lead to

7-6. He struck again from 47 yards

0:22:050:22:12

to give Dallas a 2-point lead going

into half-time.

2nd & 2 from the

0:22:120:22:21

11-yard line. Through the middle and

into a gaping hole into the end zone

0:22:210:22:26

with a touchdown.

He is not

physically the superior athlete

0:22:260:22:31

amongst these running backs, but

here he is again having a

0:22:310:22:35

significant role in this game.

Converting on two point attempts.

0:22:350:22:44

Look at this formation. He throws in

that direction and it is Clement.

0:22:440:22:55

3rd & 10. To hide. That was intended

for Beasley. Overthrown. 2nd & 6.

0:22:550:23:06

Through the middle. He is out in

front. Can they get him from behind?

0:23:060:23:13

And they do at the 15-yard line.

Byron Jones saves the touchdown.

It

0:23:130:23:21

is 71 yard. Going to see the traffic

going the other way this time and it

0:23:210:23:28

just pops. Byron Jones saves the

day. But the Eagles feel good about

0:23:280:23:37

the fact they made that trick.

A

flag is thrown. Smith had crossed

0:23:370:23:46

the goal line, so the signal is in.

That is Anthony Browne. We see this

0:23:460:23:59

more and more in the NFL, the wide

receivers going outside and hopping

0:23:590:24:05

back inside, or going inside and

hopping back outside. We continue to

0:24:050:24:11

see some explosive plays.

A

conversion attempt. They are trying

0:24:110:24:17

to make it a 14 point lead. Under

pressure and gets away and throws

0:24:170:24:24

and another flag. The conversion for

the moment is good.

REFEREE:

0:24:240:24:29

Holding.

3rd & 3 from the 15. And he

breaks away and he goes in for the

0:24:290:24:45

touchdown.

Unless his knee goes

down, it looks like it bounced off

0:24:450:24:51

the turf. Has it hit the ground?

Right there. Looe what do you do

0:24:510:24:59

now, coach? The Eagles are going to

go for it in these situations.

0:24:590:25:10

What a catch by Jeffrey. Into the

end zone. On 4th down. Watch this

0:25:170:25:23

catch. Oh, my goodness. Wow. These

guys are magicians catching the

0:25:230:25:30

ball. Everything has been working in

the second half.

Prescott was the

0:25:300:25:38

oncoming player. They say the play

is still alive. He runs it in for

0:25:380:25:42

the touchdown. And the ball comes

out and goes backwards, so this bevy

0:25:420:25:55

of past rushers continued to haunt

the Philadelphia Eagles. They have

0:25:550:26:00

been putting on a show for a

sustained period of time. I think

0:26:000:26:05

the realisation of life without

Ezequiel Elliott is starting to set

0:26:050:26:09

in. Picked off in the end zone.

0:26:090:26:17

Nine and one by the Eagles and five

and five other Cowboys. It is a

0:26:230:26:28

four-game lead at the end of week 11

for Philadelphia. The best record in

0:26:280:26:33

the league and they meet Chicago

next week.

I think we knew coming in

0:26:330:26:37

at half-time we left a lot out

there. We are much better than that.

0:26:370:26:42

It shows we have a lot of belief in

each other and we can get the job

0:26:420:26:45

done.

0:26:450:26:47

No doubt that it was a bit down,

Philadelphia impressive in all

0:26:540:26:59

aspects. They have three different

running backs who can provide all

0:26:590:27:02

different things for them.

They

certainly can, breaking big play

0:27:020:27:08

after big play.

And that line is out

there pushing people around. When

0:27:080:27:17

you see a team come out and

dominate, they are out there pushing

0:27:170:27:22

around. You have big running backs

like that and you make those big

0:27:220:27:27

gaping holes to run through shows

how dominate the car. That should

0:27:270:27:35

help dominant they are.

Cory Clement

is a bit lighter and a bit slimmer

0:27:350:27:41

and those gaps are bigger for him to

run through.

And you see it right

0:27:410:27:47

there. It just opened up like the

Red Sea.

It feels like they are

0:27:470:27:52

complete football team at the moment

because their defense demolished

0:27:520:27:55

Prescott.

They are good at the back

and they come at you wave after

0:27:550:28:02

wave, after wave.

They are an

outstanding football team. And they

0:28:020:28:07

are young. What is impressive is

Roby just came back from injury and

0:28:070:28:15

he did not miss a step. That is

scary, they are getting healthier!

0:28:150:28:21

They come in in waves and they wear

you down. It is kind of scary. They

0:28:210:28:26

do not miss tackles.

You talk about

them coming in waves and they are

0:28:260:28:32

able to rotate and you talk about

them being young, but is their

0:28:320:28:40

roster deeper than other teams?

It

is deep enough in the fact they have

0:28:400:28:44

good players in every position. A

lot of teams will be going to be

0:28:440:28:50

good on the front side. They have

guys who are just as good as the

0:28:500:28:55

starters coming in.

The Eagles

should be starting to dream.

This is

0:28:550:29:01

a good team that has every element

covered.

0:29:010:29:04

If we get to February and the Super

Bowl and it is the Philadelphia

0:29:060:29:13

Eagles against the New England

Patriots, is that your worst

0:29:130:29:15

nightmare?

It will be a tough day. I

am in a loose - lose situation no

0:29:150:29:23

matter what.

It is going to be a joy

for me and you. I am not biased, but

0:29:230:29:35

fingers crossed just to make him

comfortable.

0:29:350:29:38

On Monday evening the defending NFC

champions Atlanta headed to Seattle

0:29:380:29:40

looking to keep their season alive.

0:29:400:29:42

With Carolina and New Orleans

stealing a march in the NFC South

0:29:420:29:45

and their playoff hopes in severe

danger, a win was required at one

0:29:450:29:48

of the most intimidating

places to place football.

0:29:480:30:00

Terry Cole, defensive lineman,

comes in on the game line to block.

0:30:000:30:05

There is flag down

and a touchdown for

0:30:050:30:07

Trevin Coleman.

0:30:070:30:13

72 says, the 06 lines.

0:30:130:30:15

He fires, and it is picked off,

right into the hands

0:30:150:30:19

of Trufant.

0:30:190:30:24

And culminating in

a happy homecoming.

0:30:240:30:26

Wilson tackled him

and the ball came out.

0:30:260:30:28

Trufant got it back.

0:30:280:30:29

Russell Wilson with a great

effort to almost knock

0:30:290:30:31

this ball away from Trufant.

0:30:310:30:32

But what a start for the Falcons.

0:30:320:30:34

Interesting formation.

0:30:340:30:35

Levine Toilolo was

moving back and forth.

0:30:350:30:38

The tight end was

staying in the block.

0:30:380:30:40

By the sideline.

0:30:400:30:44

Jones in a crowd.

0:30:440:30:52

They are going to confer,

they want to see if he was

0:30:520:30:55

inbounds when he came down

0:30:550:30:56

with the ball.

0:30:560:30:57

Yes.

0:30:570:30:58

He goes up and gets it

at its highest point.

0:30:580:31:00

Does he have them both in?

0:31:000:31:02

Yes.

0:31:020:31:03

Indeed.

0:31:030:31:04

What a catch by Julio Jones.

0:31:040:31:05

3rd & goal.

0:31:050:31:08

Ryan, that quarter at the endzone.

0:31:080:31:14

He says, if you can do

it, I can outdo you.

0:31:140:31:16

What a catch.

0:31:160:31:20

Three minutes to go in the quarter.

0:31:200:31:22

Wilson to the end zone

and it is caught.

0:31:220:31:25

Jimmy Graham with a touchdown

for the Seahawks.

0:31:250:31:35

Wilson, he's swung down, back at 11,

the ball's on the field and

0:31:400:31:43

for the moment it is a touchdown

for Adrian Claiborne Atlanta.

0:31:430:31:45

Takk McKinlay can do the one thing

that very few ends can

0:31:450:31:48

do.

0:31:480:31:49

And that is to run

four, five or better.

0:31:490:31:52

Well the upshot, knocked it out.

0:31:520:31:53

And there is Claiborne.

0:31:530:31:54

The tight end goes

out of the backfield.

0:31:540:31:56

Rolled out for Wilson,

and a touchdown!

0:31:560:32:06

He is the best man for

the job for Seattle.

0:32:090:32:12

Catches at 45 yards.

0:32:120:32:13

And throws to an open receiver.

0:32:130:32:14

It's a touchdown.

0:32:140:32:16

That's for Levine Toilolo.

0:32:160:32:21

Everybody thinks that they are

throwing the ball to the right.

0:32:210:32:23

Levine Toilolo sneaks out.

0:32:230:32:25

And this personnel grouping

is killing the Seahawks.

0:32:250:32:35

From the offside, and Russell down

the middle for a touchdown.

0:32:360:32:39

1.06 to go, no

time-outs for Seattle.

0:32:390:32:43

A very tentative rush.

0:32:430:32:45

They are trying to keep them bottled

up, and they still can't.

0:32:450:32:48

They managed to trip

him up from behind,

0:32:480:32:53

Deion Jones, a huge tackle.

0:32:530:32:57

a 52 yard try to tie it.

0:32:570:33:07

And almost certainly into overtime.

0:33:080:33:12

Walshe, straight down the

middle.

0:33:120:33:13

It was a big leg, but he didn't

catch enough of that one.

0:33:130:33:17

I thought it was a really

good, hard fought game.

0:33:170:33:19

Both sides, both ways.

0:33:190:33:20

And, as it does, it comes down

to critical situations and you have

0:33:200:33:25

got to try and plays to commend

and make the conversion,

0:33:250:33:27

and we need to get it done.

0:33:270:33:29

I feel a bit for

Walshe at the moment.

0:33:290:33:31

I know it is job to kick it over,

Brad Walshe, 52 yards.

0:33:310:33:35

One of the longer ones.

0:33:350:33:36

He comes off the back,

missing some kicks.

0:33:360:33:44

When we split the screen you will

see Pete Carroll's reaction again.

0:33:440:33:47

Do you have some sympathy for him?

0:33:470:33:49

None at all.

0:33:490:33:50

That is what he supposed to do.

0:33:500:33:51

These are tight games.

0:33:510:33:53

They've got to have

somebody to execute kicks.

0:33:530:33:55

And it is just not happening.

0:33:550:33:56

They keep on giving him chances.

0:33:560:33:57

I don't understand.

0:33:570:33:58

Would you cut him?

0:33:580:34:00

No question.

0:34:000:34:01

Minnesota did that

a couple of years ago.

0:34:010:34:03

Yeah, yeah.

0:34:030:34:05

And they just keep

on giving him chances.

0:34:050:34:09

And that went through the hands of

Jimmy Graham. You would expect in

0:34:090:34:14

the catch but he doesn't get

0:34:140:34:15

Jimmy Graham. You would expect in

the catch but he doesn't get the

0:34:150:34:16

blame.

That is a way that the cookie

crumbles.

It is never one play, but

0:34:160:34:22

for the kick it almost is.

It was a

fantastic game with plenty of

0:34:220:34:28

errors, but that made for an

entertaining game. Atlanta got their

0:34:280:34:34

Michael Holding.

Yes, they were on

point, getting things done, great

0:34:340:34:40

performance by the offense.

When he

needed the big plays, he went to

0:34:400:34:45

Julio Jones and marketed. Eugh!

Sometimes you got to just throw the

0:34:450:34:52

ball up and let them make plays for

you. The Rams against Minnesota

0:34:520:34:56

shortly, but the Seahawks at the

moment feel like it is Russell

0:34:560:35:02

Wilson... And the rest of them and

they are relying on him to turn it

0:35:020:35:06

on week in, week out.

It is like the

game we play when we were young, you

0:35:060:35:11

throw the ball up to a guy and

everyone had tried to tackle in?

You

0:35:110:35:15

know the game? No!

One guy with the

ball and he would try and tackle in

0:35:150:35:23

and he would have you are trying

tackling and he would have to play

0:35:230:35:26

by himself.

Have the front office

that the Seahawks down and not get

0:35:260:35:29

the squad updated, or what?

That is

kind of their formula. You rarely

0:35:290:35:34

have so much money and you can

allocate it and they don't invest in

0:35:340:35:37

the offensive line.

What they have

invested in is the defensive line

0:35:370:35:46

and they are missing so many players

from their defense, it'll be hard

0:35:460:35:50

for them to sustain anything going

forward this season.

0:35:500:35:55

Let's have a look at some of the

other games.

0:35:550:35:58

The lead went back and forth in this

one until the day for men sealed it

0:36:060:36:13

with a pair of fourth-quarter

touchdowns, the second from 34

0:36:130:36:16

yards. Both of these are now four

and six without their regular

0:36:160:36:22

starting quarterbacks. Let it go,

Jason, we have got football to

0:36:220:36:30

describe. The Browns entertained a

Jaguar still looking for their first

0:36:300:36:35

win of the season. The Jaguars took

the lead, then they responded with a

0:36:350:36:41

27 yard patch down past-due Duke

Johnson. The Jaguar sealed it with

0:36:410:36:45

just over a minute left. Kelvin

Smith recovered in the end zone for

0:36:450:36:52

the touchdown. The Jaguars go to

seven and three. Now, this was the

0:36:520:36:58

Packers' retro hit. The Packers were

shut out by the Ravens at home. Mark

0:36:580:37:04

Wallace catching that 21 yard pass.

0:37:040:37:16

Sak six times, intercepted three

times, the Ravens were in sync and

0:37:190:37:23

now they are five and five and the

Packers fans were not. The Packers

0:37:230:37:29

fans were not best pleased. There

was a close game in Chicago as the

0:37:290:37:35

Bears hosted the Lions in an NFC

North clash. Jordan Howe have had a

0:37:350:37:40

big day, making 125 yards and this

12 yard touchdown in the second

0:37:400:37:45

quarter. This 28 yard pass from Matt

Stafford du Marvin Jones late in the

0:37:450:37:50

second quarter kept Detroit in the

game. The lines were 24 up in the

0:37:500:37:56

fourth quarter when Chicago decided

to enter the posts that only he

0:37:560:37:59

could see. That was awful. The Lions

go to six and four and they stay in

0:37:590:38:05

touch in the North. The best offense

in the league against this snarling,

0:38:050:38:11

meanest defense, the LA Rams

turnaround from the eighth and eight

0:38:110:38:15

specialist Jeff Fisher to the

progressive leadership of Sean

0:38:150:38:18

McVeigh has seen then put in serious

challenge to the West heavyweight

0:38:180:38:23

Seattle. The hosts are led by a

defensive savvy coach in Mike Zimmer

0:38:230:38:28

who, along with his players will

relish the serious challenge of

0:38:280:38:33

shutting down Jarod Goff, and his

Rams.

0:38:330:38:38

Forward, and touchdown!

What a great

opening job.

The Rams get the ball,

0:38:450:38:53

the number one offense in the league

goes right down the field. And

0:38:530:39:01

touchdown! Froing over the middle.

He's got it. Harris recovers. Eugh!

0:39:010:39:20

You can see his forearm chopping at

the football and breaking it free

0:39:200:39:23

role long before a knee goes down or

even has control. A turnover on the

0:39:230:39:28

one. And a big hole, and the

shoulder across midfield, in a game

0:39:280:39:42

that is looking for big plays that

is a 25 yard run for Moray.

Look at

0:39:420:39:48

that gap right there for him to run

through. All of them claiming space

0:39:480:39:54

for Latavius Murray.

The Vikings go

three tight ends and the only wide

0:39:540:40:02

receiver on the play. And there he

is. Right up the middle. Touchdown!

0:40:020:40:20

Look at Murray. Again, he is getting

a push not just from his self but

0:40:220:40:28

from 61 and 52 and Hill, 69, from

the back.

Oh, he had it. Through the

0:40:280:40:41

hands.

He couldn't hold it. He gets

the guy stack, you see Amir on the

0:40:410:40:48

slot. He takes the inside release.

He gets on top of him. He goes up,

0:40:480:40:54

and he just doesn't finish the play.

The Rams bring it. Keenum gets rid

0:40:540:41:02

of it. And often other races,

touchdown! 65 yards!

Hatfield, the

0:41:020:41:21

guy who comes up with a big plays,

but you see it from the wide angle.

0:41:210:41:27

Union some point when tolls was

going to bring some pressure then

0:41:270:41:29

they went to zero pressure, so

one-on-one across-the-board, Keenum

0:41:290:41:33

sees it. Everyone else is rushing

the passer. You make one guy miss,

0:41:330:41:40

and you take it to the house.

0:41:400:41:51

And Downey goes.

The running side to

side against this point is tough.

0:41:520:42:01

That front protects the linebackers

in the second area and keeps them

0:42:010:42:05

clean to run to the football. So

instead of being able to blasted

0:42:050:42:12

inside it became hello Newman.

And

he put him down. What else is new?

0:42:120:42:26

Again as we saw from Hatfield on the

other side, Dwayne Johnson, the best

0:42:260:42:30

corner on 3rd & 5, he is playing

nine, ten yards off, that is an easy

0:42:300:42:34

completion in this league. He's got

to challenge the receivers and move

0:42:340:42:38

up and get in their face because if

they do not get up the field here

0:42:380:42:42

there hopes are running dry.

It was

24-7 to the Vikings with just over

0:42:420:42:52

two minutes left in the game. Don't

care what the score is, they asked

0:42:520:43:02

trying to stop them getting off the

field here. In troubled border and

0:43:020:43:08

Downey goes. The rookie with his

first NFL sack. And the Minnesota

0:43:080:43:19

Vikings win 24-7. What a performance

all around.

We played well in all

0:43:190:43:29

three phases. Room eight plays when

we needed to, in the 3rd down s, I

0:43:290:43:37

thought that the offense made great

conversions. That drive me up at the

0:43:370:43:42

end of the ball game, I thought that

was huge.

We definitely got humbled

0:43:420:43:46

today by a very good team. You have

got to look at yourself critically.

0:43:460:43:51

I've got to do a better job for the

team and especially the offense.

0:43:510:43:54

Didn't put them in enough good

situations today but every loss

0:43:540:43:58

provides an opportunity for us to

handle some adversity the right way

0:43:580:44:02

and up to this point, this team has

done that.

0:44:020:44:12

and up to this point, this team has

done that.

0:44:120:44:13

It was the defense that got the

better of the offense in the skin.

0:44:130:44:17

Let's get to the tape. Let's

highlight a few guys right here. You

0:44:170:44:25

going to highlight everybody you is

your friend?

Anthony Harris, the

0:44:250:44:30

back-up safety, won the game, plug

and play. This is what happens in

0:44:300:44:34

football, you have to win your

one-on-one battles. Especially in

0:44:340:44:40

the running game. I want you to

watch this. Watch this one-on-one

0:44:400:44:45

battle in the run the game. He comes

down, and boom, throws him all the

0:44:450:44:52

way back, makes him redirect. That

is what the running back does not

0:44:520:44:56

want to do, because it kills

everything that they are trying to

0:44:560:44:59

do. Once again, one-on-one battle.

The things you need to do to be

0:44:590:45:05

effective and have a winning,

successful formula is one-on-one

0:45:050:45:10

battles and this is where you see

this.

0:45:100:45:20

He is trying to identify who the

Blitzer is.

The problem is he has

0:45:200:45:24

got a tan of guys in there. Right

now he is trying to identify who is

0:45:240:45:30

going to be the Blitzer, but he

cannot see it.

They are deliberately

0:45:300:45:35

standing like that.

They are

floating around. As the ball snapped

0:45:350:45:41

you see this, it is delayed. Nobody

picks me up and forces the throw and

0:45:410:45:49

guess who is back there. He was at

the line of scrimmage mark. Would

0:45:490:45:55

you think he was going to get back

there? That is what good defenses

0:45:550:46:00

do, disguise things. 22 just makes

plays.

And yet we have seen other

0:46:000:46:08

teams this season lose their

quarterbacks, Green Bay in

0:46:080:46:12

particular with Aaron Rodgers, and

it delayed their season. Over the

0:46:120:46:15

last 18 months they have changed.

And last season Case Keenum was

0:46:150:46:25

brought in and he has been

successful, so why?

The offensive

0:46:250:46:30

line, his favourite position. With

all those different things

0:46:300:46:33

happening, let's highlight this. You

have got Case Keenum here. The most

0:46:330:46:38

consistent thing is this new

offensive line. Let's see this, so

0:46:380:46:45

you know what it is. What is that?

It looks like a pocket to me.

That

0:46:450:46:53

is what it is. As a quarterback

pocket makes you feel very

0:46:530:46:57

comfortable. You have lanes. He will

get the snap and he sees the lane

0:46:570:47:04

and he will take off. He has the

ability to run.

But he needs to be

0:47:040:47:12

protected.

This is his number one

guy, but what does he have again?

0:47:120:47:17

Let's see?

Can I do this one? Is it

a pocket?

It is a pocket! And now he

0:47:170:47:29

feels comfortable back there to

execute the play down the field

0:47:290:47:32

which is what they have been able to

do because the quarterback feels

0:47:320:47:36

comfortable. He has time, he makes

the throw and the consistency is

0:47:360:47:40

with the offensive line.

And he

deserves credit as well.

Absolutely,

0:47:400:47:47

he has to make the throws, but it is

easier when you feel protected.

We

0:47:470:47:51

should bring back that panel game,

win, lose or draw. And you have two

0:47:510:47:57

team captains.

0:47:570:48:00

And you have two team captains.

0:48:000:48:08

AFC East: Buffalo at 5-5 now and sit

just out of playoff contention.

0:48:080:48:11

in contention for the playoffs.

0:48:140:48:16

over Cleveland puts them

0:48:160:48:18

in a commanding position.

0:48:180:48:19

from their last five and Kansas City

0:48:190:48:21

are looking over their shoulder

NFC East: The Eagles are 9-1

and remain the number

0:48:230:48:26

1 seed from the NFC.

0:48:260:48:27

NFC North: The Vikings

over Seattle keeps them in the mix

0:48:310:48:34

of the Seahawks following their win.

A reminder, a special NFL Show

is on at 11.45pm this Saturday

0:48:380:48:41

That leaves me with just enough time

to wish you a happy Thanksgiving

0:48:510:48:54

and we'll see you next time.

0:48:540:49:01

The folklore of America reserved a

special place for the comeback, but

0:49:010:49:05

first it must have its grand plan

that unravels. The slide, the grim

0:49:050:49:13

prospects, the defiance, looking

adversity in the face and not

0:49:130:49:19

blinkered. The race against the

clock, the spirit that cannot be

0:49:190:49:24

extinguished. Only in the NFL.

0:49:240:49:29

It's week eleven 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. The regular season is drawing to a close as teams across the AFC and NFC divisions jostle for one of twelve playoff positions. In a week packed with high profile games, the pick this week comes from Dallas who welcome NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.
