Hello and welcome to NFL This Week.

0:00:330:00:35

Thanksgiving celebrations have been

and gone, and now we edge ever

0:00:350:00:39

closer to the playoffs.

0:00:390:00:40

For those unfamiliar

with the path to the playoffs,

0:00:400:00:43

following 17 weeks of the regular

season our 32 teams

0:00:430:00:45

are whittled down to 12.

0:00:450:00:49

Of that 12, the AFC and NFC

conferences each provide

0:00:490:00:52

four divisional winners,

then to make up the numbers we have

0:00:520:00:55

four wildcard teams,

two from each conference.

0:00:550:00:59

In plain English, that's teams

with the next best win-loss records.

0:00:590:01:04

We'll, of course, explain

everything as we go along,

0:01:040:01:06

but with 68 days and counting

until Super Bowl 52 in Minnesota,

0:01:060:01:10

here's how the playoff pictures

looked after Thursday games.

0:01:100:01:18

So our four divisional leaders

in best record order are -

0:01:180:01:20

Pittsburgh, New England,

Jacksonville and Kansas City.

0:01:200:01:23

Sitting in the wildcard spots

were Tennessee and Baltimore.

0:01:230:01:28

The NFC is so compelling this year.

0:01:310:01:33

Our divisional leaders

are Philadelphia, Minnesota,

0:01:330:01:34

New Orleans and the LA Rams.

0:01:340:01:35

Note the two wildcard teams come

from the competitive NFC South.

0:01:350:01:38

That's because the wildcard slots

are filled with the teams

0:01:380:01:41

with the next best record,

regardless of what

0:01:410:01:42

division you're in.

0:01:420:01:44

And, of course, joining me once

again are two-time Super Bowl winner

0:01:440:01:47

Osi Umenyiora and former corner

Jason Bell.

0:01:470:01:49

In the AFC South, Jacksonville

had a slender one game

0:01:490:01:54

lead over Tennessee.

0:01:540:01:56

Heading into week 12

on a four game win streak.

0:01:560:01:59

Any slip-up from the Jaguars

and the window of opportunity

0:01:590:02:01

opens for Tennessee.

0:02:010:02:02

Both Tennessee and Jacksonville face

each other in the final week

0:02:020:02:07

of the regular season,

but first a tricky trip

0:02:070:02:09

to Arizona for the Jags.

0:02:090:02:13

We join in the second quarter,

with Jacksonville already 6-0 down.

0:02:130:02:16

We join in the second quarter,

with Jacksonville already 6-0 down.

0:02:160:02:18

We join in the second quarter,

with Jacksonville already 6-0 down.

0:02:180:02:19

First and ten from the 29.

0:02:220:02:25

Gabbart throws it.

0:02:250:02:30

Jones is in for the

Arizona touchdown!

0:02:300:02:33

29 yards from Gabbart.

0:02:330:02:41

They completely lose the tight and

running vertically. Gabbart sees

0:02:410:02:46

Ricky Seals-Jones. That is easy.

The Jaguars got on the board through

0:02:460:02:56

a field goal. It was 13-3 at

half-time. Phil Dawson struck early

0:02:560:03:00

in the third quarter to restore the

Cardinals' lead.

0:03:000:03:08

And a big one here to give the

Jags... All the way down to the ten

0:03:080:03:19

yard line as they catch the

Cardinals on that play. Bortles with

0:03:190:03:25

a 30 yard gallop. Do you like this

decision?

Rayudu.

Bortles rolls out,

0:03:250:03:32

and he is in for the touchdown!

Bortles gets a good blog by his

0:03:320:03:41

right guard.

He makes it on the ground.

0:03:410:03:43

Gabbart from the shotgun. Well

protected. Now the football comes

0:03:480:03:52

loose. It is Calais Campbell. He is

into the end zone! The former

0:03:520:04:01

Cardinal coming back home with a

monstrous play for the Jaguars.

This

0:04:010:04:07

is pretty unbelievable. Number 91,

who has been on fire. Not only does

0:04:070:04:13

he sack the quarterback, but how he

continues to get these balls out is

0:04:130:04:17

just unbelievable.

First and ten

Gabbart. Campbell giving chase.

0:04:170:04:26

Gabbart houses man. Into the end

zone! Jaron Brown with the

0:04:260:04:33

touchdown.

This was pretty

incredible. Barry Church is the

0:04:330:04:38

safety. He gets lost in coverage.

Jaron Brown is able to get behind

0:04:380:04:43

him. Outside of Larry Fitzgerald.

Boy, that was a huge play.

Bruce

0:04:430:04:54

Arians electing to go for two extra

points. They throw towards the end

0:04:540:05:02

zone. Caught. Fitzgerald for the

conversion.

0:05:020:05:09

In the fourth quarter. This has been

a fun game until this point. It

0:05:090:05:12

looks like they are going to play it

here. Interesting decision by Corey

0:05:120:05:17

Grant. Still going. Grand shot out

of the canon. Finally forced out of

0:05:170:05:23

bounds by Phil Dawson. We questioned

the decision initially, but what a

0:05:230:05:30

run from Corey Grant.

When you have

got great speed like this... He

0:05:300:05:36

takes it out, trying to make

something happen. A huge play by the

0:05:360:05:40

Cardinals. He is able to hit the

sideline. One person away from being

0:05:400:05:46

a touchdown. Was that exactly how

you want to answer if you are

0:05:460:05:50

Jacksonville.

First and ten from the 17. Bortles

0:05:500:05:57

runs for a! He is into the end zone

for his second rushing touchdown!

0:05:570:06:03

Jacksonville punching bag.

Bortles

cuts this insight. White out the

0:06:030:06:10

Cardinals Defense handles this.

There is about a ten yard hole

0:06:100:06:19

inside for Bortles with no other

inside linebacker to replace.

0:06:190:06:27

Gabbart's passes intercepted. It is

picked off by Barry Church.

Barry

0:06:270:06:33

Church was beaten earlier on the

long touchdown catch. In massive --

0:06:330:06:40

that was a massive play. He read

Gabbart like a book. He knew that

0:06:400:06:46

because pressure was coming that

Gabbart had to throw to the side of

0:06:460:06:51

the field he was looking. That is

the way to make up freediving away a

0:06:510:06:56

touchdown, setting up your Offense.

This is a huge third down. They have

0:06:560:07:03

to pick up some yardage. Keep this

drive going.

They are right at the

0:07:030:07:08

target line. Bortles passes!

Intercepted.

Bortles was laid on

0:07:080:07:21

this throw. They are running a

sprint out pass. He waits too long

0:07:210:07:27

before his receiver comes out of the

break. That allowed Matthew to read

0:07:270:07:31

the play, get in the throw-in Lane

and get a huge play for his Offense.

0:07:310:07:38

Not a lot of options. If the ball

comes out of bounds, they will not

0:07:380:07:42

be long last. This has two go up the

field or quick to the sideline.

0:07:420:07:51

Exactly what they wanted. Out of

bounds. 11 seconds remaining.

0:07:510:07:59

Gabbart. He throws it towards the

sideline. It is caught. What a pass

0:07:590:08:05

by Gabbart. Six seconds left.

What a

catch. Phil Dawson with what would

0:08:050:08:21

be the longest field goal of his

career.

This one is on target. And

0:08:210:08:28

it is good! One second left. Phil

Dawson has kicked Arizona in front.

0:08:280:08:39

The Arizona Cardinals win it here in

week

0:08:390:08:44

The Arizona Cardinals win it here in

week 12 on the right leg of Phil

0:08:440:08:45

Dawson.

That was an excellent team win.

0:08:450:08:49

Nothing was perfect. But we never

blinked. Nobody coming in this

0:08:490:08:56

house.

I have to do a better job at

getting these guys ready to go and

0:08:560:09:00

coming out and playing. We weren't

ready. When teams are not ready,

0:09:000:09:07

that is the illness that falls on

me.

0:09:070:09:11

I wonder if you think it falls on

him, or we will look at the bigger

0:09:110:09:17

picture? He is uncertain about what

Blake Bortles can do for him. I'm

0:09:170:09:21

not being funny but in that last

minute he could have maybe got the

0:09:210:09:25

ball up the field and gone for a

field goal range. The first player

0:09:250:09:29

he chose was a run play, it took

time off the top. Do you think he is

0:09:290:09:34

a bit confused?

First of all, they

are not a team supposed to be

0:09:340:09:38

playing from behind. This team is

supposed to be built on Defense. You

0:09:380:09:44

see what happens when you put it in

Blake Bortles' hands. I feel like he

0:09:440:09:49

is not aware. He is looking at the

pressure all the time and not

0:09:490:09:52

looking down the field. When there

is pressure he doesn't feel it. Even

0:09:520:09:56

right here, you can roll out of

this. You can see Russell Wilson

0:09:560:10:00

roll out of this and make it happen.

Chandler Jones had an outstanding

0:10:000:10:04

ball game. He showed every single

movement. I like the celebration at

0:10:040:10:09

the end. Bortles is an inconsistent

quarterback.

This is crazy. He threw

0:10:090:10:19

the ball late and he didn't see

Tyrann Mathieu.

How did he not see

0:10:190:10:25

that?

Some guy stopped looking

downfield and they started looking

0:10:250:10:31

at everything else. It seems like

his eyes are failing him. He is not

0:10:310:10:35

looking at his reads.

Is that a

confidence thing?

Absolutely. It is

0:10:350:10:41

confidence and your understanding of

the game. A lot of the stuff about

0:10:410:10:45

the quarterback is how you feel. He

does not have the awareness.

I

0:10:450:10:51

wasn't being mischievous, do you

think there is a disconnect between

0:10:510:10:54

the head coach and quarterback,

there is maybe a lack of trust from

0:10:540:10:58

one and the other?

No question. The

quarterback has shown throughout his

0:10:580:11:03

career that he is inconsistent. You

cannot put the ball in his hands in

0:11:030:11:09

a crucial situation. If you are the

head coach, you have doubts.

You go

0:11:090:11:14

to the run game if you possibly can

to take some pressure off your

0:11:140:11:17

quarterback. And Leonard Fournette

has just dipped off in recent weeks,

0:11:170:11:23

which sometimes you would expect

from a rookie?

Yeah. The reason why

0:11:230:11:29

yes dropped off is because they are

stopping the run. Teams know they

0:11:290:11:33

can run the ball and play good

Defense. You take away the run, wear

0:11:330:11:38

them down on Defense.

A lot of this

goes on the offensive line. They are

0:11:380:11:44

not creating the holes. They are

stacking eight, nine people in the

0:11:440:11:49

box. Blake Bortles does not have the

strength or mental awareness to beat

0:11:490:11:53

them. They are taking away Leonard

Borren -- Leonard Fournette and

0:11:530:11:57

Blake Bortles cannot get the job

done.

An NFL team is about different

0:11:570:12:01

units. This Defense is so good. This

is arguably a Super Bowl's team's

0:12:010:12:10

Defense. If you were on that

Defense, would you be going, my God

0:12:100:12:14

of these guys are costing us the

chance to go to a Super Bowl?

I

0:12:140:12:17

don't think you would be saying that

because they know where their

0:12:170:12:20

brothers -- bread is buttered. They

knew for a couple of years that

0:12:200:12:25

Blake Bortles would not take them to

the promised land. They knew

0:12:250:12:29

defensively there had to play

better.

In private moments?

Oh, in

0:12:290:12:36

private I would like to know what is

going on!

You cannot give up 21

0:12:360:12:42

point if you're a big time Defense.

0:12:420:12:53

A reminder we've the NFL

Show this Saturday,

0:12:550:12:57

following Match of the Day.

0:12:570:12:59

We'll have highlights

of Washington's trip

0:12:590:13:01

to Dallas on Thursday,

and a preview to week 13

0:13:010:13:04

with the latest playoff picture.

0:13:040:13:05

That's all from 11.50pm on BBC One.

0:13:050:13:08

You can also catch

everything on the iPlayer.

0:13:080:13:11

Right, let's take a look at some

of the other week 12 games.

0:13:110:13:21

Let's see if Tennessee to take

advantage of Jacksonville's slip-up.

0:13:210:13:24

And they could.

Frank goal with

0:13:240:13:28

advantage of Jacksonville's slip-up.

And they could.

Frank goal with his

0:13:280:13:28

94th career touchdown.

He put the Coles up 19-6. DeMarco

0:13:280:13:37

Murray going over.

There is no way

Tennessee is that good.

Their top of

0:13:370:13:45

the NFC South. The Patriots against

the Dolphins. Gronkowski ended up

0:13:450:13:57

with a couple of touchdowns. It is

basically between the Patriots and

0:13:570:14:02

the Steelers.

That is a humble man!

John McDermid beat Taylor,

0:14:020:14:11

surprisingly! Taylor fans, Jones

from 11 yards. The fourth quarter

0:14:110:14:27

White picked off Alex Smith. Kansas

City have now lost five in six.

0:14:270:14:33

There was a scrap in this game

between the Raiders and the Broncos.

0:14:330:14:39

Both players ejected.

An NFC fight

with no promotion!

And very little

0:14:390:14:46

contact.

0:14:460:14:48

He got the scoring going. Found

Cooper.

0:14:520:14:58

He hurt his ankle in the third

quarter.

0:15:010:15:13

Browns always on the back foot.

They's doing well.

A fourth

0:15:270:15:33

Guatamalaer touchdown. This

surprisingly was a cracker on Sunday

0:15:330:15:38

night. Packers taking on the

Steelers. Three touchdowns. This 55

0:15:380:15:47

yard pass to Adams put the Packers

21-14 up early in the third quarter.

0:15:470:16:02

Were you a cheerleader there?

0:16:030:16:04

That's our fight song.

0:16:040:16:05

He scored a touchdown,

good play Brett Hundley.

0:16:050:16:07

Big Ben had four touchdowns.

0:16:070:16:09

That one a 33 yard

pass to Antonio Brown.

0:16:090:16:11

Chris Boswell won it

with the longest ever field

0:16:110:16:13

goal at Heinz Field.

0:16:130:16:14

Good win, good win.

0:16:140:16:15

Let's talk Tom Brady

first of all, shall we?

0:16:150:16:17

He's been nominated

for BBC Sports Personality

0:16:170:16:19

of the Overseas Personality.

0:16:190:16:20

I have, in the interests of

fairness, give the other nominees.

0:16:200:16:23

Michael van Gerwen,

Katie Ledecky, Tatyana McFadden,

0:16:230:16:24

Sally Pearson and Roger Federer.

0:16:240:16:27

I'm assuming you're foe voting

for Federer, are you?

0:16:270:16:30

I know, that's the only guy

who I know, Federer.

0:16:300:16:32

Yeah.

0:16:320:16:33

That's the only one I know.

0:16:330:16:35

You don't know that one?

0:16:350:16:36

Don't know that guy, no.

0:16:360:16:37

OK.

0:16:370:16:38

Nah, I do.

0:16:380:16:39

I do.

0:16:390:16:42

I imagine Brady sits there going -

I've won six Super Bowls, but I've

0:16:420:16:45

never won Sports Personality

of the Year Overseas,

0:16:450:16:47

that's the most important thing.

0:16:470:16:49

You know, he is a good

quarterback, man.

0:16:490:16:51

I actually finally realised

he was a good quarterback

0:16:510:16:53

after the fifth Super Bowl

that he won.

0:16:530:16:55

I was like -

That's sounds

about right, after the fifth one.

0:16:550:16:57

Wow!

0:16:570:16:58

I'm going to give you some

good stats on him.

0:16:580:17:01

I'm ready, I'm ready.

0:17:010:17:02

Only three quarterbacks have ever

gone at this stage of the season

0:17:020:17:05

25 touchdowns or more,

five interceptions or less.

0:17:050:17:07

Obviously, he's one of them.

0:17:070:17:08

Carson Wentz has

done it this season.

0:17:080:17:10

Wow.

0:17:100:17:11

And Aaron Rodgers as well.

0:17:110:17:12

When you watch him at the moment,

I mean, he could go into his

0:17:120:17:15

mid 40s, couldn't he?

0:17:150:17:21

You know, the way he plays the game

he could definitely do that

0:17:210:17:24

because he protects himself.

0:17:240:17:25

The game obviously is more

quarterback friendly,

0:17:250:17:27

but he protects himself.

0:17:270:17:28

You know it's funny,

this guy can do anything,

0:17:280:17:33

any kind of offense you want to run

week-to-week, he can do.

0:17:330:17:35

No quarterbacks can really do that.

0:17:350:17:37

He is the only one.

0:17:370:17:38

I suppose you could say similar

of Alex Smith, could you?

0:17:380:17:41

I mean, he could be

going into his...

0:17:410:17:43

LAUGHTER.

0:17:430:17:44

Smith.

0:17:440:17:45

Smith isn't going

to go into Week 13!

0:17:450:17:46

What has happened there!

0:17:460:17:48

You know, Mark, you see

this is the thing, man.

0:17:480:17:50

A leopard cannot change his

spots, man, it can't.

0:17:500:17:54

He started off hot at

the beginning of the year.

0:17:540:17:57

Everybody was talking

about - he's the goat.

0:17:570:17:59

He's the greatest

quarterback of all-time.

0:17:590:18:00

This guy's on par with Tom Brady.

0:18:000:18:02

And I said, this guy's

going to go back to himself.

0:18:020:18:04

He showed himself, with ten

seasons prior to this,

0:18:040:18:07

he's not going to go back

to being a down the field threat.

0:18:070:18:10

He's just not that

good of a quarterback.

0:18:100:18:12

He's a game manager.

0:18:120:18:13

But for all of that,

do you find it slightly insulting

0:18:130:18:15

towards him that there are people

asking Andy Reid whether he should

0:18:150:18:18

bring in Patrick Mahomes,

who he only drafted this summer.

0:18:180:18:21

No.

0:18:210:18:22

Absolutely.

0:18:220:18:23

What do you mean, no.

0:18:230:18:25

Why's that an insult?

0:18:250:18:26

Because the offensive line

is the real issue at play, OK.

0:18:260:18:29

Because when they were rolling,

they had the running

0:18:290:18:31

game with Kareem Hunt.

0:18:310:18:32

He was leading the league

Russian, right.

0:18:320:18:34

Yes.

0:18:340:18:35

We were giving him

the Rookie of the year.

0:18:350:18:37

There are no holes any more.

0:18:370:18:38

Let me ask you a question then.

0:18:380:18:40

I will listen.

0:18:400:18:41

If Tom Brady had no running game...

0:18:410:18:43

OK.

0:18:430:18:44

Would he struggle like Alex Smith

is struggling right now?

0:18:440:18:46

That's Tom Brady.

0:18:460:18:47

Good!

0:18:470:18:48

That's my point.

0:18:480:18:49

He's not that kind of

quarterback - period.

0:18:490:18:51

What's happened to Kansas City -

That's not a fair question.

0:18:510:18:54

I got you good.

0:18:540:18:55

- means it's opened up the AFC West.

0:18:550:18:57

Let's go inside the Raider's

locker room after their

0:18:570:18:59

win over the Broncos.

0:18:590:19:00

This is the beginning

of a run right here.

0:19:000:19:02

This is the beginning of a run.

0:19:020:19:04

You see around the league

what's going on.

0:19:040:19:06

Right.

0:19:060:19:07

We're in control of our

own destiny right now.

0:19:070:19:09

Just look at it, we're in control.

0:19:090:19:11

Jack Del Rio says

they are in control.

0:19:110:19:13

They probably are in

control, aren't they?

0:19:130:19:14

Did you see that guy's

stomach back there?

0:19:140:19:16

Were you a shirt off guy?

0:19:160:19:18

I wasn't.

0:19:180:19:19

I didn't - you know,

back then I didn't have...

0:19:190:19:21

You could see why

he had his shirt off?

0:19:210:19:23

I could, I could.

0:19:230:19:24

I could.

0:19:240:19:25

I forgot the whole question.

0:19:250:19:26

Well, if they can go

and they have their destiny

0:19:260:19:29

in their hand, with Crabtree

being out, that's

0:19:290:19:31

a significant blow to them.

0:19:310:19:32

I think they were and they're not

addressing the fact that they don't

0:19:320:19:35

have their number two receiver

that was arguably their number one.

0:19:350:19:38

Chiefs still have Oakland

and the Chargers to play.

0:19:380:19:40

The Chargers have the Chiefs

and Oakland to play.

0:19:400:19:42

Oakland have the Chiefs

and the Chargers to play as well.

0:19:420:19:45

So, therefore, they each control

their own destiny in many ways?

0:19:450:19:47

Yes, they do, and they're

going to beat themselves up, man.

0:19:470:19:50

The AFC West, even though some

of these teams aren't playing very

0:19:500:19:53

well, they know each other very,

very well and they're

0:19:530:19:55

going to beat each other up

for the rest of the season.

0:19:550:19:58

Two teams now who have surpassed

expectations this season.

0:19:580:20:00

Shirt up.

0:20:000:20:04

Leaders of the NFC South,

the New Orleans Saints are marching

0:20:040:20:08

- I actually thought

you were going to show your

0:20:080:20:10

stomach for a minute.

0:20:100:20:11

No.

0:20:110:20:12

I had a big lunch, Mark.

0:20:120:20:20

..into Los Angeles on the back

of an eight game win streak.

0:20:200:20:23

The LA Rams turned over their 53 man

roster in the off season,

0:20:230:20:26

17 new players coming in under

new head coach Sean McVay.

0:20:260:20:28

With quarterback Jared Goff

playing like a new player.

0:20:280:20:31

the Rams are leading

the way in the NFC West

0:20:310:20:33

with a much feared offense.

0:20:330:20:34

The LA Rams, like a prized specium

taken around the country's shows,

0:20:340:20:37

starting in Cleveland,

on to Los Angeles, then St Louis.

0:20:370:20:40

Where they had their moment

as the greatest show on turf -

0:20:400:20:42

Super Bowl 34, one of the great

games with the tackle

0:20:420:20:45

and the final play.

0:20:450:20:49

COMMENTATOR:

The Rams win by a yard.

0:20:490:20:51

Can they go there again?

0:20:510:20:55

The Rams back in LA and top

of the NFC West, welcoming

0:20:550:20:58

the top of the NFC South.

0:20:580:21:00

Rams and Saints, a table

topping showdown in LA.

0:21:000:21:10

COMMENTATOR:

Here's Goff.

0:21:100:21:14

To the end zone for the touchdown

for the touchdown to Watkins.

0:21:140:21:17

Goff sees one-on-one with Watkins

and De'Vante Harris who the backup

0:21:170:21:20

with the two corners hurt today

for the Saints.

0:21:200:21:23

They picked on him.

0:21:230:21:24

STUDIO: The Rams added a 50 yard

field goal from Greg Zuerlein Later

0:21:240:21:27

in the caught quarter to take

a 10-0 lead.

0:21:270:21:30

COMMENTATOR:

Kamara.

0:21:300:21:35

Look at Kamara go.

0:21:350:21:37

Look at Kamara, past the 50

and racing down the sideline.

0:21:370:21:40

They can't get him.

0:21:400:21:42

He breaks it for the touchdown.

0:21:420:21:46

74 yards, the longest play

of the rookie's career.

0:21:460:21:48

Watch the centre here.

0:21:480:21:58

What a block by Unger to seal

the edge and then Kamara just

0:21:580:22:01

shows off the ability.

0:22:010:22:02

I'm telling you, Kamara averages 7.6

yards per touch, per touch.

0:22:020:22:09

Second in the NFL's 5.8.

0:22:090:22:11

COMMENTATOR:

2nd & 11.

0:22:110:22:14

Oh!

0:22:140:22:18

With the catch.

0:22:180:22:19

Finally shoved out.

0:22:190:22:24

I can't believe this.

0:22:240:22:26

Watch, he's going to run.

0:22:260:22:28

Double move.

0:22:280:22:30

He gets somebody and then just

stops, falls he just

0:22:300:22:33

thought the play was over.

0:22:330:22:35

2nd and goal.

0:22:350:22:38

Right at the seven.

0:22:380:22:41

Oh, tonnes of time.

0:22:410:22:43

And it's caught for

the touchdown by Reynolds.

0:22:430:22:46

Watch.

0:22:460:22:49

There's only three guys.

0:22:490:22:51

When you have three men rush,

you've got to stand in there quiet

0:22:510:22:54

and calm as a quarterback.

0:22:540:22:56

Kamara, the running back.

0:22:560:22:59

Swing it over to him.

0:22:590:23:06

Barwin, trying to make a tackle.

0:23:060:23:08

Kamara too quick and too shifty.

0:23:080:23:11

She's got another 1st down,

and he's still going.

0:23:110:23:13

I also think that you should just

turn and throw it to Kamara.

0:23:130:23:17

Yes.

0:23:170:23:18

10 yards behind

everybody in this pack.

0:23:180:23:20

Just make everything happen.

0:23:200:23:22

Look at this.

0:23:220:23:23

I mean, he's...

0:23:230:23:25

He's Barwin's got a shot.

0:23:250:23:27

Another miss, another miss.

0:23:270:23:30

Another miss.

0:23:300:23:31

Another miss.

0:23:310:23:34

And a tackle.

0:23:340:23:39

STUDIO: Zuerlein made a 49 yard kick

to extend the lead to 13

0:23:390:23:42

at the start of the fourth.

0:23:420:23:44

COMMENTATOR:

There's plenty

of time to run the ball

0:23:440:23:47

and everything still.

0:23:470:23:49

But keeping them guessing.

0:23:490:23:50

Under 40, you set it

down, drop the penalty.

0:23:500:23:53

Tossing it over to Kamara.

0:23:530:23:54

No-one gets him on the first hit.

0:23:540:23:56

Look at the hurdle.

0:23:560:23:58

Yes, they used to have track

and field here for the Olympics,

0:23:580:24:01

and he just qualified for the 2028

Games that are going

0:24:010:24:03

to be held here!

0:24:030:24:04

LAUGHTER.

0:24:040:24:06

In this colosseum again.

0:24:060:24:08

He's just special.

0:24:080:24:10

Kamara's a special talent.

0:24:100:24:12

Brees completes it.

0:24:120:24:17

Kamara, taking off.

0:24:170:24:19

He's tripped up at

the fourth by Johnson.

0:24:190:24:23

Now watch, these guys

are here to clear it.

0:24:230:24:26

So Kamara can see the one-on-one.

0:24:260:24:27

Look at Kamara right there.

0:24:270:24:29

He gets one-on-one with Barwin,

I believe, and gets all

0:24:290:24:31

the way up the field.

0:24:310:24:33

You can't guard him

in that kind of space.

0:24:330:24:35

Goalline from the three.

0:24:350:24:36

Goalline from the three.

0:24:360:24:38

This has to be a pass, doesn't it?

0:24:380:24:40

Pass all the way.

0:24:400:24:42

It's Ingram out of the back field.

0:24:420:24:44

And it goes in untouched.

0:24:440:24:47

We have another flag.

0:24:470:24:51

This preliminary signals

against New Orleans.

0:24:510:24:52

Oh!

0:24:520:24:54

Oh!

0:24:540:24:56

Replay.

0:24:560:24:58

2nd down.

0:24:580:25:00

COMMENTATOR:

Watch him right there.

0:25:000:25:02

Boom, he hits him.

0:25:020:25:03

That is a penalty.

0:25:030:25:06

It was three yards passed

the line of scrimmage.

0:25:060:25:08

STUDIO: With ten minutes left

the Saints had settled for a 21 yard

0:25:080:25:11

field goal from Wil Lutz to reduce

the deficit to 10.

0:25:110:25:13

Before the Rams responded.

0:25:130:25:14

Capping a five-and-a-half minute

drive with another Zuerlein field

0:25:140:25:16

goal to restore their 13 point lead.

0:25:160:25:18

If you can keep throwing

the ball out-of-bounds,

0:25:180:25:20

I don't care get if you get five

yards or 15.

0:25:200:25:23

You just keep doing that.

0:25:230:25:24

And if you're The Rams,

keep them inside the numbers.

0:25:240:25:26

Play the sideline.

0:25:260:25:27

Another sideline pass.

0:25:270:25:29

Again, wide open once more.

0:25:290:25:30

Offside.

0:25:300:25:31

Yeah.

0:25:310:25:32

It will be a free

play here for Brees.

0:25:320:25:34

Kamara - touchdown.

0:25:340:25:35

He even slowed down

to a jog to take it across.

0:25:350:25:40

Well, here we go.

to a jog to take it across.

0:25:400:25:41

Offside, defense.

to a jog to take it across.

0:25:410:25:43

Number 50.

to a jog to take it across.

0:25:430:25:47

Decline.

to a jog to take it across.

0:25:470:25:49

Touchdown.

to a jog to take it across.

0:25:490:25:51

COMMENTATOR:

75 yards

and 42 seconds.

0:25:510:25:53

Kamara just makes Ogletree stand

right there and think he's going...

0:25:530:25:56

Oh, that was so easy.

0:25:560:25:57

New Orleans are going

to kick an onside here.

0:25:570:25:59

Obviously the Rams get

it, the game's over.

0:25:590:26:01

New Orleans gets it,

they're right back in it.

0:26:010:26:04

But everyone else kicks

with a bunch of people.

0:26:040:26:06

That's why they tried the last one.

0:26:060:26:07

Up in the air.

0:26:070:26:09

That's Watkins.

0:26:090:26:11

That'll do it.

0:26:110:26:18

The Rams come in and at home

at the colosseum and get

0:26:180:26:21

it done in a big game.

0:26:210:26:23

I can't say enough about

the defense's effort.

0:26:230:26:24

Hold the number one offense

in the league right there.

0:26:240:26:27

Give it up for the defense, man.

0:26:270:26:28

APPLAUSE.

0:26:280:26:29

We talked about finishing.

0:26:290:26:31

We talked about attacking.

0:26:310:26:32

That's exactly what we did.

0:26:320:26:33

I appreciate this.

0:26:330:26:34

I love that win and then we find

a way to come together tomorrow,

0:26:340:26:37

have a great week of preparation,

going to the t Arizonal Cardinals,

0:26:370:26:40

trying to find a way

to get our ninth win.

0:26:400:26:42

Are you guys with me on this?

0:26:420:26:44

Bring it up here, fellas.

0:26:440:26:45

Bring it up, bring it up, man.

0:26:450:26:47

Hell, yeah.

0:26:470:26:48

Love you guys, man.

0:26:480:26:49

It's all about family.

0:26:490:26:50

Family on three - 1, 2, 3.

0:26:500:26:52

FAMILY!

0:26:520:26:53

Well, the transformation of the Rams

under Sean McVay is something we've

0:26:530:26:56

talked about a lot over the course

of this season.

0:26:560:26:58

It's like our favourite subject.

0:26:580:26:59

But that doesn't mean

we can't keep revisiting it.

0:26:590:27:02

There are lots of different

things to look at, both

0:27:020:27:04

offensively and defensively.

0:27:040:27:05

One of the things they've done a lot

is play action, play action pass.

0:27:050:27:08

So what I want you to do is take us

through what the play action

0:27:080:27:12

is and why it's worked for them?

0:27:120:27:14

Exactly.

0:27:140:27:15

Play action pass is one of the most

effective plays in football.

0:27:150:27:17

Essentially, the way

you want to start this realistically

0:27:170:27:20

is by running the football first

because what that does is it sucks

0:27:200:27:23

the defenders up and allows

the middle of the field to be open

0:27:230:27:26

for the pass.

0:27:260:27:27

So when we look at this

play, who is it that

0:27:270:27:30

you want us to highlight?

0:27:300:27:31

You want to look at

number 52, right there.

0:27:310:27:33

OK.

0:27:330:27:34

The Saints' linebacker there.

0:27:340:27:35

Exactly.

0:27:350:27:36

OK.

0:27:360:27:37

Here we go.

0:27:370:27:38

Oh!

0:27:380:27:39

I've hit the wrong button.

0:27:390:27:40

There you go.

0:27:400:27:42

If you see him right here,

as the play goes, he's shadowing

0:27:420:27:44

basically Todd Gurley.

0:27:440:27:45

As soon as the run comes down, he's

going to crash down immediately,

0:27:450:27:48

trying to stop the run.

0:27:480:27:50

They're still able, you know,

to get big yardage out of this

0:27:500:27:53

because they are having

a really effective running.

0:27:530:27:55

This particular season today Gurley

absolutely balling this year.

0:27:550:27:58

This time?

0:27:580:27:59

Oh, this is setting up the play

action, just like Osi said.

0:27:590:28:02

Right now what happened last time is

that the linebackers got blocked up.

0:28:020:28:05

Sold now they're going

to be aggressive.

0:28:050:28:07

They're not going to

allow that to happen.

0:28:070:28:09

They're going to stop this run.

0:28:090:28:11

They get sucked up.

0:28:110:28:11

What happens?

0:28:110:28:13

He drops it right

behind him in the zone.

0:28:130:28:15

Jared Goff sees that,

drops it right behind him.

0:28:150:28:17

That section of the offense

is a void right there.

0:28:170:28:19

The key to that is having a good

running back who can do

0:28:190:28:22

what you need them to do

for that play action?

0:28:220:28:25

Yep.

0:28:250:28:26

Have you to have an outstanding

running game for the play action

0:28:260:28:29

to be really effective.

0:28:290:28:30

Realistically, on the defensive side

of the ball, it is the worst

0:28:300:28:32

position for you to be

in because you don't know

0:28:320:28:35

if the run is am coming,

if the pass is coming.

0:28:350:28:38

You're playing tepid.

0:28:380:28:39

You don't know what's going on out

there and they just keep on mixing

0:28:390:28:42

it up back-and-forth.

0:28:420:28:43

It felt like when we watched

the Rams last season,

0:28:430:28:45

whether it was Case Keenum

as quarterback or Jared Goff

0:28:450:28:48

as quarterback, their receiving call

couldn't catch a cold, basically.

0:28:480:28:50

That has changed under McVay

and they've got this kid

0:28:500:28:53

who they drafted in Cooper Kupp

and he has an understanding

0:28:530:28:55

already with Goff.

0:28:550:28:56

Yeah, that's what important

with a guy like this because he's

0:28:560:28:59

in the slot and primarily in tight

formations like this.

0:28:590:29:01

Hey he has to be on the same

page as the quarterback.

0:29:010:29:04

Right now he has an option route.

0:29:040:29:06

In or out.

0:29:060:29:07

He goes out by the way

to the defenders.

0:29:070:29:09

They have to be on the same page

before the snap to make that happen.

0:29:090:29:13

Once again they go back to the same

formation against the same

0:29:130:29:16

player and they get him

with the out and up.

0:29:160:29:18

You see the result.

0:29:180:29:19

Earlier he knew - oh,

they got me with the out.

0:29:190:29:22

Now they're on the same page,

out and up, big play by them.

0:29:220:29:25

Really veteran play

by that young guy.

0:29:250:29:27

He's able to make all

the routes out there.

0:29:270:29:29

Fantastic young football player.

0:29:290:29:30

How impressed - we will come

on to their defense in a moment,

0:29:300:29:33

but McVay has he adapted his

offensive coaching ethos

0:29:330:29:35

to suit his quarterbackback?

0:29:350:29:36

Yes, he did.

0:29:360:29:37

Absolutely.

0:29:370:29:38

He actually went to watch

Jared Goff's college tape,

0:29:380:29:40

brought in some of the things that

Jared Goff was really...

0:29:400:29:43

Remember, this was

the number one pick.

0:29:430:29:45

He was the number one pick

for a reason because he was

0:29:450:29:47

an outstanding college quarterback.

0:29:470:29:48

They didn't utilise him to the best

of his abilities last year,

0:29:480:29:51

but this year McVay went back,

took all of the things

0:29:510:29:54

that he was good at,

brought him into his offense

0:29:540:29:56

and you see it paying dividends.

0:29:560:29:58

What he's given him

is an answer to every play.

0:29:580:30:00

Meaning, when he looks

at the film he goes -

0:30:000:30:03

why am I doing this?

0:30:030:30:04

What's the reason?

0:30:040:30:05

And what they say McVay's

doing is telling him -

0:30:050:30:07

this is the reason you're making

these checks and

0:30:070:30:09

understanding these reads.

0:30:090:30:10

So now when he goes

the line of scrimmage

0:30:100:30:13

he knows what he's doing.

0:30:130:30:14

He's got an answer.

0:30:140:30:15

So what he's done is he's

brought his own scheme that worked

0:30:150:30:18

when he was at Washington,

made sure that he's brought

0:30:180:30:20

the personnel in...

0:30:200:30:21

Because this is a team,

as we said in the build-up that's

0:30:210:30:24

had an awful lot of change.

0:30:240:30:26

17 of the 53.

0:30:260:30:27

He's brought personnel

in to suit his scheme,

0:30:270:30:28

but then subtly changed his scheme

to suit the quarterback.

0:30:280:30:36

It is really hard for offensive

coordinators. You have to fall

0:30:360:30:39

It is really hard for offensive

coordinators. You have to fall in

0:30:390:30:40

love with your players.

You have to fall in love with your

0:30:400:30:47

pundit. It doesn't happen very

often! And on this show it has! On

0:30:470:30:55

the other side of the ball he has

got the Defense of experience?

No

0:30:550:30:59

question about that. For the new

youthful experience of Sean McVeigh,

0:30:590:31:05

you have the wily veteran. You see

the things he is bringing. Hit

0:31:050:31:12

you have the wily veteran. You see

the things he is bringing. Hit play

0:31:120:31:12

and watch these guys go to work.

Look at this. Attacking Drew Breeze.

0:31:120:31:20

He has nowhere to throw. He throws

the ball over the middle.

Hustled to

0:31:200:31:24

the ball. That is what good defences

are taught.

Here you see them bring

0:31:240:31:33

it, finding ways to put pressure on

the quarterback. You see them

0:31:330:31:37

collapse the pocket, grabbed Drew

Breeze like he is a little loaf of

0:31:370:31:40

bread.

The pocket has collapsed that

often this season with the Saints?

0:31:400:31:46

It is really difficult to do because

of how the Saints play. That is the

0:31:460:31:52

reason why they won this game.

He always finds a way to

0:31:520:31:56

reason why they won this game.

He always finds a way to get Isgrove

0:31:560:31:57

players single. He schemes away for

you to get up single and make a

0:31:570:32:05

play. They will be there or

thereabouts in the latter stages?

0:32:050:32:09

They have all the ingredients, as

one of my friends likes to say.

You

0:32:090:32:14

are just hoping they beat the Eagles

at some point.

0:32:140:32:17

are just hoping they beat the Eagles

at some point. Let's look at some of

0:32:170:32:18

the other games.

Things started badly for Russell

0:32:180:32:25

Wilson for Seattle against the 49ers

when he threw an interception on the

0:32:250:32:28

first play picked off by Eric Reid.

They then gained control. There were

0:32:280:32:37

21-6 ahead by the end of the third

quarter. With a minute left in the

0:32:370:32:46

game this happened. A loss for San

Francisco but maybe some hope for

0:32:460:32:50

their fans going forward. The Eagles

hosted the Bears in a one-sided

0:32:500:32:57

clash. The Eagles went 14-0 ahead in

the second quarter. Geoffrey also

0:32:570:33:10

had a second quarter touchdown

against his old team.

Old team, make

0:33:100:33:16

them pay.

They were bowled over.

Julio Jones was back to his best

0:33:160:33:26

against Tampa Bay for the Falcons.

He made several catches, including

0:33:260:33:34

that one, from Mohamed Sanu. There

was a touchdown minutes later. A

0:33:340:33:43

fourth-quarter touchdown sealed it.

Houston's players should probably

0:33:430:33:55

have practised football rather than

baseball in their warm up. Two

0:33:550:34:01

second-quarter touchdowns took the

game away from the Texans. Alex

0:34:010:34:05

Collins from eight yards. Tom Savage

couldn't cope with the ravens'

0:34:050:34:12

Defense. He was sacked in the fourth

quarter. Then intercepted by Anthony

0:34:120:34:16

Levine. Ravens six and five,.

0:34:160:34:24

quarter. Then intercepted by Anthony

Levine. Ravens six and five,.

0:34:240:34:27

Let's show you what happened in the

Tom Savage press conference.

0:34:270:34:36

Are we good?

He didn't want to answer anything.

0:34:360:34:44

It didn't look like anybody wanted

to ask him.

The lady asked him, is

0:34:440:34:52

nobody here? The disrespect when you

are losing!

That is terrible. I

0:34:520:34:56

think he wanted to get home. Let's

talk the Eagles. They have gone to

0:34:560:35:02

ten and one. We have spoken a lot

about Carson Wentz. A lot about the

0:35:020:35:07

receivers. We have touched on the

Defense. Against the Bears the

0:35:070:35:10

Defense was outstanding?

The

defensive coordinator is an

0:35:100:35:17

outstanding defensive coordinator.

He runs a cover three Defense. He

0:35:170:35:22

has

0:35:220:35:22

He runs a cover three Defense. He

has found a way to run this to

0:35:220:35:24

perfection.

He doesn't complicate things. He

0:35:240:35:27

doesn't blitz too much. He turns the

guys up from Toulouse.

They yielded

0:35:270:35:36

just six yards on the ground, the

fewest they have allowed since 1950.

0:35:360:35:41

And they haven't allowed a single

touchdown in the first quarter all

0:35:410:35:45

season, and they have surrendered

only one touchdown in the entire

0:35:450:35:49

month of November.

Let me

0:35:490:35:54

only one touchdown in the entire

month of November.

Let me tell you

0:35:540:35:54

with those statistics you have a

Super Bowl team. When they run that

0:35:540:35:59

wide 90, they have got that front

seven, they wrote take them in and

0:35:590:36:03

out, meaning they are fresh. That

makes a lot of sense on why they are

0:36:030:36:07

dominating. -- they rotate them.

Six

rushing yards to the Chicago Bears,

0:36:070:36:15

a running football team? Do you know

how difficult that is to do? You

0:36:150:36:20

have to be playing like your head is

on fire. Those guys have been doing

0:36:200:36:23

that pretty much the entire season.

You are saying with it being

0:36:230:36:28

simplified. He doesn't do anything

particularly novel. He simplifies

0:36:280:36:33

things. There is strength in depth?

Keep it stupid symbol. He knows what

0:36:330:36:41

he's doing. His players have bought

into his system.

They played to

0:36:410:36:45

perfection. San Francisco are out.

0:36:450:37:00

This might be a significant moment

for the Seahawks. The fans cheered

0:37:020:37:13

when the third went off injured. It

left the rock below one minute at

0:37:130:37:18

the end of the fourth quarter. He

did this with his only minute as a

0:37:180:37:29

49er.

He looked good. Creating time

in the pocket to make this play

0:37:290:37:35

downfield. Why would you want to put

him in with that of offensive line?

0:37:350:37:39

You saw what happened before that.

You don't want to get that guy hurt

0:37:390:37:42

if you know he's that good. You know

what you have got.

He gave them a

0:37:420:37:47

dense of what possibly be. We saw

him last year and some of the things

0:37:470:37:51

he was good at. I want to get back

to the San Francisco 49ers fans

0:37:510:37:56

cheering. This sort of thing makes

me angry.

Maybe they are chained --

0:37:560:38:02

during the thought of the

substitute.

That is an excuse but

0:38:020:38:06

absolutely no way, man. That is just

poor taste.

Poor form. Our final

0:38:060:38:13

game sees Carolina head to New York

to face the Jets suffering the Super

0:38:130:38:17

Bowl curse. The Panthers finished

bottom of the table last season and

0:38:170:38:22

failed to make the play-offs.

0:38:220:38:24

bottom of the table last season and

failed to make the play-offs.

0:38:240:38:24

Cam Newton has made quite the

statement this year. The Carolina

0:38:240:38:29

Panthers do not do shades of grey.

No past the in this team. They play

0:38:290:38:35

like Cam Newton dresses. Glamour and

loud. Or they fall hard. Super Bowl

0:38:350:38:43

L, Cam Newton and the Denver

Broncos. Getting over that was

0:38:430:38:47

tough. But the Panthers are roaring

again. And Cam Newton is dressing

0:38:470:38:53

big and playful. The New York Jets

are no mean test.

0:38:530:39:09

The Panthers are the number one team

in third down. Newton goes into the

0:39:100:39:19

end zone.

After the Jets went three and out on

0:39:190:39:27

back-to-back possessions, the

Panthers added a field goal to lead

0:39:270:39:31

by nine points with four minutes

remaining in the second quarter.

0:39:310:39:37

Looking for the Anderson. He came

down on the ball but did he get it?

0:39:370:39:44

It is a touchdown from Anderson!

That is down five straight games for

0:39:440:39:49

Anderson. Great effort.

0:39:490:40:09

He is going to let it fly! That is

Anderson. A touchdown!

Watch in

0:40:090:40:22

direct traffic as he is driven out

of the pocket. He goes deep. As far

0:40:220:40:29

as you can go. Throws the ball to

Robbie Anderson.

Cam Newton would

0:40:290:40:37

all date to throw. Inside the 15.

Inside the tent. Inside the five.

0:40:370:40:45

About half a yard shy. Steward Anne

McCaffrey in the back field behind

0:40:450:40:51

Cam Newton. -- Stewart and

McCaffrey. Stewart will barrel his

0:40:510:41:01

way into the end zone for a

touchdown.

0:41:010:41:04

Let's see what they do. They are

going to throw a jump ball. Is it a

0:41:070:41:16

touchdown? It is a touchdown for

Jenkins!

0:41:160:41:22

They are still taking a look at

this.

0:41:220:41:26

The receiver did not maintain

control of the ball. Went out of

0:41:260:41:31

bounds. It is an incomplete pass.

It will be third down. The Jets

0:41:310:41:35

couldn't convert after the

controversial call and settled for

0:41:350:41:40

the field goal to take the lead.

Did he throw the ball? He scoops and

0:41:400:41:53

open races into the end zone.

Wes

Horton, number 96... It looked like

0:41:530:42:01

he tried to flick the ball. Keighley

shows his athletic ability. The

0:42:010:42:09

mindset of a superstar, scoop and

score.

Carolina will go for two once

0:42:090:42:14

more to make this a six points

drill. McCaffrey at the top of your

0:42:140:42:19

screen. McCaffrey in motion. He

somersault into the end zone for the

0:42:190:42:29

2-point conversion. This is a big

play, even with ten minutes and 50

0:42:290:42:36

seconds left.

And smothered. That is his draft

0:42:360:42:47

classmate going away back to 2002,

big penetration by Vernon Butler. He

0:42:470:42:53

forced him to drop his eyes. After

16 years to still be able to do

0:42:530:43:00

this...

It is the third sack the Jets have

0:43:000:43:04

allowed today. Now a pond to give

Carolina the football back. It is

0:43:040:43:12

play. He is down the sideline. A

touchdown! Caleb Clay! What a turn

0:43:120:43:21

of events. A touchdown of 61 yards.

He brings an element that is not

0:43:210:43:34

present of -- from that position.

Just off to the races. No problem.

0:43:340:43:42

Throw to the corner. It's a

touchdown. It's a huge down for the

0:43:490:43:54

Jets on defense. Newton to throw it

on 3rd down. They will try and sneak

0:43:540:44:01

in behind. Incomplete. A flag comes

in. Well after the throw was made by

0:44:010:44:09

Newton.

They are going to call that

every single time. Everybody knows

0:44:090:44:13

that. You know, you are beating

yourselves. Again, you can't

0:44:130:44:17

overcome that.

45 yard try. It is.

The Jets let this get away. A couple

0:44:170:44:32

of penalties just absolutely killed

them. The Panthers go to 8-3 with a

0:44:320:44:41

35-47 win.

0:44:410:44:42

them. The Panthers go to 8-3 with a

35-47 win.

It's no reason for a

0:44:420:44:46

player to beat on his chest when he

say he has a good game, but the team

0:44:460:44:50

lost. So I don't view it in that

type of manner. I feel as if we had

0:44:500:44:55

a great team win today. We are going

to need more team wins moving

0:44:550:44:59

forward as we get prepared for the

playoffs.

0:44:590:45:04

The suit and the bow tie

were nice, but the hat.

0:45:040:45:06

I couldn't even focus

on what he was saying.

0:45:060:45:08

Yeah.

0:45:080:45:09

Right, so let's ignore him.

0:45:090:45:11

What was he talking about?

0:45:110:45:12

I tell you what, let's talk

about Luke -

What did he say, Mark?

0:45:120:45:15

I've no idea!

0:45:150:45:16

Let's talk about Luke Kuechly

because, when they went

0:45:160:45:18

to the Super Bowl, we did talk

about their defense and particularly

0:45:180:45:21

the linebackers, and Kuechly is one

of the best in the game.

0:45:210:45:24

Absolutely.

0:45:240:45:25

What makes him so dynamic

is his ability to stop

0:45:250:45:27

What makes him so dynamic

is his ability to stop

0:45:270:45:28

the run and the pass.

0:45:280:45:29

He's a factor in both.

0:45:290:45:33

He obviously knows how to read

and diagnose better than anybody,

0:45:330:45:36

as you can see this.

0:45:360:45:37

He reads this plays and shoots

the gap and make as terrific tackle.

0:45:370:45:40

That's his skill set, right.

0:45:400:45:41

It's all about those

linebackers in Carolina.

0:45:410:45:43

What a great player

this guy is in, man.

0:45:430:45:45

In the locker room they called him

Clark Kent because he's really

0:45:450:45:48

quiet, has a calm demeanour,

but once he gets on the football

0:45:480:45:51

field he turns into Superman.

0:45:510:45:52

He was all over the football field,

making plays left and right.

0:45:520:45:55

Scoop and score.

0:45:550:45:56

Scoop and score, getting

into the end zone.

0:45:560:45:58

I like his little celebration.

0:45:580:45:59

Look at his excitement.

0:45:590:46:02

Yeah!

0:46:020:46:07

You see for all the attention

that's on Kam, you know,

0:46:070:46:10

if they have Kuechly and Davis

and keep them both fit, then

0:46:100:46:13

they could go deep, couldn't they?

0:46:130:46:14

Yeah.

0:46:140:46:15

It's always been about that defense.

0:46:150:46:19

It's always about those two.

0:46:190:46:20

They do so much and it gives

you so much flexibility

0:46:200:46:23

as a co-ordinator when you're

making your calls.

0:46:230:46:25

Defense and running game,

that's been Carolina

0:46:250:46:26

Panthers key to success.

0:46:260:46:27

If they're able to to continue

to play defense the way they've been

0:46:270:46:30

playing recently and run the ball

with Kam Newton, they're

0:46:300:46:33

going to go far in the playoff.

0:46:330:46:35

But they've got a very,

very competitive division.

0:46:350:46:36

Yes, they do, man.

0:46:360:46:38

They've got Atlanta,

they've got New Orleans,

0:46:380:46:39

they've got Tampa Bay,

0:46:390:46:40

who could possibly beat them

even though they're

0:46:400:46:42

not playing that well.

0:46:420:46:43

I mean, this is a really difficult

division for them to be in.

0:46:430:46:46

OK.

0:46:460:46:47

Still ridiculous.

0:46:470:46:49

Let's take a look at the standings

then before we leave you.

0:46:490:46:51

In the AFC East, New England

in full control here.

0:46:510:46:54

Obviously.

0:46:540:46:55

In the North, Pittsburgh are in full

control there as well.

0:46:550:46:57

In the South, it's Tennesse

and Jacksonville who

0:46:570:46:59

are locked to the top.

0:46:590:47:01

The Titans are now

ahead of the Jags.

0:47:020:47:05

As far as the East is concerned,

and secure their playoff spot

if Dallas lose to

Washington on Thursday.

0:47:110:47:12

In the North, Minnesota are in

control, as we've just been saying.

0:47:180:47:21

As far as the playoff

picture is concerned then,

0:47:210:47:23

Pittsburgh and New England

are fighting it out for the one

0:47:230:47:26

and two seeds, that will then

obviously secure a week off

0:47:260:47:29

and home field advantage.

0:47:290:47:30

The Chiefs are still

in the playoff picture - just.

0:47:300:47:36

Wow!

Some teams might dare breathe

a little more easily.

0:48:340:48:38

But relax at your peril.

0:48:380:48:48

How the mighty can tumble and,

in the race to the playoffs,

0:48:480:48:51

relaxation is a luxury you sample

at your peril.
