And it will be time for these

two teams to settle it

0:00:050:00:07

between the white lines...

0:00:070:00:09

He's going to fire it

towards the end zone.

0:00:090:00:12

Montana throws!

0:00:120:00:15

Looking downfield, going deep...

0:00:150:00:20

The one-man wrecking crew!

0:00:200:00:22

Unbelievable!

0:00:220:00:25

How did he do that?

0:00:250:00:30

Let's go!

0:00:300:00:31

For the win!

0:00:310:00:32

Unstoppable!

0:00:320:00:38

Fasten your seat belts,

it's playoff time!

0:00:380:00:41

The short sharp incline

of the postseason.

0:00:410:00:43

Ode to Minnesota, the pathway

to Super Bowl LII.

0:00:430:00:48

The straight knockout

of the playoffs, no second chances

0:00:480:00:50

here, every game that piece

of stand-alone theatre.

0:00:500:00:55

He just kicked the Giants

to the Super Bowl.

0:00:550:00:57

With that big defensive hit.

0:00:570:01:03

Into the end zone.

0:01:030:01:04

Touchdown!

0:01:040:01:05

Everybody gets it.

0:01:050:01:06

Everybody wants a piece of it.

0:01:060:01:08

And in this theatre,

one moment may make history,

0:01:080:01:10

one touch that sets a team

on a course, the Steelers.

0:01:100:01:16

Back goes Bradshaw.

0:01:160:01:17

He is looking.

0:01:170:01:19

The most decorated of all

the teams in the NFL.

0:01:190:01:23

Touchdown!

0:01:230:01:25

One touch, from one pass

that promises so little.

0:01:250:01:29

And to this, Clarence Davies.

0:01:290:01:35

Unbelievable!

0:01:350:01:36

Nerves and dreams are shredded

and in the mayhem, there

0:01:360:01:39

will be a lack of reason.

0:01:390:01:41

A certain strangeness can take over.

0:01:410:01:45

The Eagles and the players

are playing football.

0:01:450:01:47

I love it, it is dramatic,

you cannot even see the BLEEP!

0:01:470:01:50

ball!

0:01:500:01:51

To stay calm in the cauldron,

to think, to plot.

0:01:510:01:55

He is being chased.

0:01:550:01:56

Gets away.

0:01:560:01:57

Stays on his feet.

0:01:570:01:59

Sometimes the prize

is to enjoy a little luck.

0:01:590:02:04

The quarterbacks are going forward.

0:02:040:02:12

And sometimes to be calm at just

the right moment deserts you.

0:02:170:02:20

He goes back to pass,

intercepted, I cannot believe

0:02:200:02:22

what I am seeing right now.

0:02:220:02:24

And these great theatres

become lonely places.

0:02:240:02:25

For those that make the stage,

this is what makes them.

0:02:250:02:28

This ugly ass face!

0:02:280:02:30

This is where they

will be remembered.

0:02:300:02:33

It is picked off.

0:02:330:02:34

Ray Lewis has the ball.

0:02:340:02:35

Touchdown, Ray Lewis!

0:02:350:02:36

These are the experiences.

0:02:360:02:38

Owens made the catch.

0:02:380:02:40

This is amazing!

0:02:400:02:42

The events that fuelled them.

0:02:420:02:44

Incredible.

0:02:440:02:45

What a comeback by the Bills!

0:02:450:02:47

To rule here and to want more.

0:02:470:02:50

Let's go, baby!

0:02:500:02:51

Lets go home!

0:02:510:02:53

Or to have been inspired by this.

0:02:530:03:00

And who will now want

to make their mark.

0:03:000:03:05

Our turn now.

0:03:050:03:07

Gourley at the goal

line, touchdown now.

0:03:070:03:11

The turn of the year,

the launch of the playoffs.

0:03:110:03:17

It is pandemonium.

0:03:170:03:18

Do not...

0:03:180:03:19

It is pandemonium!

0:03:190:03:20

Move.

0:03:200:03:22

Fantastic.

0:03:220:03:29

So our 12 teams are locked

in for the playoffs.

0:03:290:03:31

With 11 Super Bowls between them,

New England and Pittsburgh

0:03:310:03:33

await their opponents in next week's

divisional round as eight teams take

0:03:330:03:36

part in the 'Wild Card' weekend.

0:03:360:03:40

Making their first playoff

appearance in 18 years are the 6th

0:03:400:03:43

seeded Buffalo Bills.

0:03:430:03:45

They head to Jacksonville,

who host a playoff game

0:03:450:03:47

for the first time in 18 years.

0:03:470:03:50

In the other game 5th

seeded Tennessee head

0:03:500:03:51

to 4th seeded Kansas City.

0:03:510:03:55

New England will face the lowest

seeded team to come out

0:03:550:03:57

of the weekend in Foxborough.

0:03:570:03:58

First and second seeds

Philadelphia and Minnesota

0:03:580:04:00

await their NFC match-ups.

0:04:000:04:03

Last year's Super Bowl losers

Atlanta have another crack

0:04:030:04:05

at redemption starting with a trip

to the Los Angeles Rams.

0:04:050:04:09

And in the other game a repeat

of an NFC South rivalry

0:04:090:04:12

with Carolina heading to 4th seeded

New Orleans.

0:04:120:04:17

Hello, so the regular season is now

behind us and we're now

0:04:170:04:21

in the business of talking

about the playoffs.

0:04:210:04:26

Playoffs?

0:04:260:04:28

Don't talk about...

0:04:280:04:29

Playoffs?

0:04:290:04:30

You kidding me?

0:04:300:04:31

Playoffs?

0:04:310:04:32

We're certainly not

kidding you, Jim Mora!

0:04:320:04:33

Joining me to talk playoffs,

it is our two-time Super Bowl winner

0:04:330:04:36

Osi Umenyiora and former NFL

cornerback Jason Bell.

0:04:360:04:41

And we start the action

with Carolina in New Orleans.

0:04:410:04:44

With Cam Newton orchestrating plays,

the Panthers have started

0:04:440:04:46

to resemble the team that went

to Super Bowl 50.

0:04:460:04:49

In the playoffs you don't get easy

games - sadly there's no longer

0:04:490:04:52

Cleveland on the schedule -

so if the Panthers are to leave

0:04:520:04:55

the Superdome with victory,

then they'll have to shutdown

0:04:550:04:58

running back sensation Alvin Kamara,

and the pin-point accuracy

0:04:580:05:00

of quarterback Drew Brees.

Graham Gano had a chance to open

0:05:000:05:08

the scoring for the Panthers from 25

yards late in the first quarter,

0:05:100:05:13

but he went wide and it was only his

second miss of the season.

0:05:130:05:20

Now second and ten for New Orleans.

0:05:200:05:23

Down the middle.

0:05:230:05:24

Deep.

0:05:240:05:25

Caught.

0:05:250:05:26

Inside the 30.

0:05:260:05:28

The former Panther.

0:05:280:05:29

Touchdown, New Orleans.

0:05:290:05:34

Here is Kirk Coleman,

you are going to see, he levels out.

0:05:340:05:37

Michael Thomas, he is running

a square in and that leaves a gap

0:05:370:05:40

down the middle and Bradbury

is never able to fold underneath it.

0:05:400:05:43

They bring a five-man pressure

and it is just the breaks at that

0:05:430:05:46

point and like I said,

you are not going to catch Junior.

0:05:460:05:53

Graham Gano did go over from 27

yards to bring the Panthers

0:05:530:05:55

to within four points early

in the second quarter.

0:05:550:06:03

Drew Brees.

0:06:040:06:05

End zone.

0:06:050:06:06

Open, touchdown.

0:06:060:06:07

Hill.

0:06:070:06:09

Simply a break in coverage.

0:06:090:06:10

They bring both these

guys here off the edge.

0:06:100:06:12

Nobody then accounts for Josh Hill.

0:06:120:06:15

And he is wide open

for the touchdown.

0:06:150:06:19

Graham Gano was keeping the P

anthers in the game.

0:06:190:06:21

His field goal left

them trailing 14-6.

0:06:210:06:29

Pass is caught.

0:06:290:06:32

Diving, down to the one,

is Michael Thomas.

0:06:320:06:40

Hand off is to Zac Lyon.

0:06:430:06:45

For the touchdown.

0:06:450:06:46

Graham Gano kicked a playoff record

58 yard field goal to leave Carolina

0:06:460:06:49

trailing 21-9 going into half-time.

0:06:490:06:54

Early in the third quarter,

the Panthers again had to settle

0:06:540:06:56

for a field goal from Graham Gano,

which was soon cancelled out

0:06:560:06:59

by Will Love's 57 yards.

0:06:590:07:03

New Orleans still had

the 12 point lead.

0:07:030:07:10

3rd down and six.

0:07:120:07:16

Newton.

0:07:160:07:17

Olsson.

0:07:170:07:18

Touchdown!

0:07:180:07:19

They motioned Ed Dickson

from right to left, he sees

0:07:190:07:22

the defensive back go with him,

they know he is man to man.

0:07:220:07:25

He gets a good release off

the line of scrimmage.

0:07:250:07:28

He gets inside and Cam Newton

makes an excellent throw.

0:07:280:07:31

2nd & 7.

0:07:310:07:34

Newton in trouble.

0:07:340:07:36

And sacked.

0:07:360:07:38

The first guy there

was Tyler Davidson.

0:07:380:07:42

He was there at the end of it.

0:07:420:07:43

And Newton got hit hard.

0:07:430:07:46

And he is now down on a knee.

0:07:460:07:48

Looks to be out of it.

0:07:480:07:51

He was going to the sideline

and then he went down.

0:07:510:07:54

That was a big time hit,

as he came around.

0:07:540:07:57

It was David, who had been getting

better and better every week

0:07:570:08:00

for the Saints and Davidson

knocked him down anyway.

0:08:000:08:03

His knee was down before the hit.

0:08:030:08:07

That was a big time

collision with a big body.

0:08:070:08:10

300 pounds.

0:08:100:08:12

Meanwhile, the back-up,

Derek Anderson, he has been

0:08:120:08:14

battling the flu all week,

the guy who was a pro bowler earlier

0:08:140:08:17

in his career back in 2007

but he has only thrown the ball

0:08:170:08:21

eight times all year.

0:08:210:08:25

A 34-year-old, 18 year

pro, Derek Anderson.

0:08:250:08:29

Third and 17th.

0:08:290:08:31

This one is batted down by Jordan.

0:08:310:08:34

The word that we are getting,

is that he is wearing a shield

0:08:340:08:37

to help, so that he does not get

poked in the eye, because of that

0:08:370:08:41

hit, it pushed sideways and did

affect one of his eyes.

0:08:410:08:44

Aside from the trainer

and the team doctor,

0:08:440:08:46

they did have a specialist

in there and at this point,

0:08:460:08:49

he appears to be well enough

to come back into the game.

0:08:490:08:54

Big task.

0:08:540:08:55

Drew Brees gets around

Julius Peppers.

0:08:550:08:57

He goes on the run,

he has got Thomas.

0:08:570:09:01

Touchdown.

0:09:010:09:09

He has not had the big plays.

0:09:110:09:17

I tell you what, he impacts again.

0:09:170:09:20

With all the things

that he is capable of doing,

0:09:200:09:22

on 2nd down, the pass is caught.

0:09:220:09:27

McCaffrey.

0:09:270:09:29

And in the front race,

McCaffrey, to the end zone!

0:09:290:09:34

A dome silencer from Cam Newton

to Christian McCaffrey

0:09:340:09:36

and it is a game again,

66 yards, for the touchdown.

0:09:360:09:43

You are going to see

the move that he makes,

0:09:430:09:46

right at the top and he completely

gets Robertson to jump

0:09:460:09:48

the outside route.

0:09:480:09:51

Underneath, there is no one

there and it is a foot race

0:09:510:09:54

and that is a great job.

0:09:540:09:57

There is a lot of football

left in this one.

0:09:570:09:59

Here is the situation.

0:09:590:10:00

You have got a Carolina

team with no time outs,

0:10:000:10:03

ready to get into the end zone

and if you do not get it here,

0:10:030:10:06

you are handing the ball

to Carolina, basically in mid field

0:10:060:10:09

and you are taking the time issue

off the board and the chances

0:10:090:10:12

of scoring a touchdown from mid

field go up dramatically.

0:10:120:10:20

They are going to go,

4th down and two, Drew Brees throws,

0:10:210:10:24

the pass is picked.

0:10:240:10:31

They are going to give

the interception to Mike Adams.

0:10:310:10:37

They were better off just

knocking the ball down.

0:10:370:10:40

You would have had much

better field position,

0:10:400:10:42

but just knocking it down,

but the call right now,

0:10:420:10:44

it is interception.

0:10:440:10:45

The call on the field

is an interception.

0:10:450:10:47

The defensive player fumbled

the ball forwards and out of bounds,

0:10:470:10:50

the ball will be brought back

to the spot of the fumble.

0:10:500:10:52

Carolina's ball, and down.

0:10:520:10:55

Newton in the pocket

throws, the pass is caught

0:10:550:10:57

by Devin Funchess in mid field.

0:10:570:11:04

Newton.

0:11:040:11:05

Passes to Klay.

0:11:050:11:07

Was he in bounds?

0:11:070:11:08

He was.

0:11:080:11:10

The catch is made at the 26th.

0:11:100:11:12

21 yard completion.

0:11:120:11:14

The catch there.

0:11:140:11:15

It got caught.

0:11:150:11:23

Newton just throws it away,

with Jordan all over it.

0:11:240:11:27

The flag for grounding.

0:11:270:11:28

Potential grounding.

0:11:280:11:29

Offense.

0:11:290:11:30

Number one.

0:11:300:11:31

It will be 3rd down.

0:11:310:11:37

He throws the ball all

the way back to the 34.

0:11:370:11:40

There is going to be a run off

the clock with ten seconds

0:11:400:11:43

and McCaffrey gets run over

by Jordan and he is in the pocket.

0:11:430:11:48

He is in the pocket

and trying to unload.

0:11:480:11:50

They have reset the play

clock on that last play.

0:11:500:11:55

A loss of 30 team yards,

down and ten seconds.

0:11:550:11:57

20 seconds left, third and 23.

0:11:570:12:03

Newton to the end zone,

Devin Funchess the target,

0:12:030:12:05

no flag, it is incomplete,

it is the 4th down.

0:12:050:12:11

Fourth and 23.

0:12:110:12:15

A sack.

0:12:150:12:23

I'm not going to take

the coward's way.

0:12:240:12:26

And point someone else out.

0:12:260:12:28

You know, I feel like plenty

of times this year, it was up to me.

0:12:280:12:33

I do believe I am the leader of this

team and the team goes as I go.

0:12:330:12:37

That comes with a lot

of responsibility.

0:12:370:12:41

The fact that we have got

talented guys on this team,

0:12:410:12:45

I feel like as a whole,

it still starts with me.

0:12:450:12:49

You prepare yourself,

you put all the tools into your tool

0:12:490:12:52

box and then you wait to get

to the job and then you figure out,

0:12:520:12:55

these are the tools we are going

to need and these are the ones

0:12:550:12:59

you hang onto.

0:12:590:13:00

Especially in big games like this,

when you are talking playoffs

0:13:000:13:02

and the next step forward

to achieving your goal.

0:13:020:13:06

That was quite a humble

Cam Newton that we saw there,

0:13:060:13:09

taking all the blame,

for when it hasn't gone right

0:13:090:13:11

in the season and in the playoffs.

0:13:110:13:14

That is the maturity

and growth in the quarterback

0:13:140:13:16

that you want to see.

0:13:160:13:17

Which is why I feel a little

bit unfair doing this.

0:13:170:13:21

Because we took a look at both

Drew Brees and Cam Newton and how

0:13:210:13:24

they warmed up ahead of this game.

0:13:240:13:29

Drew Brees, ever the professional,

going through his stretches,

0:13:290:13:32

going through his lunges...

0:13:320:13:35

That is nice.

0:13:350:13:36

I don't think that is yoga!

0:13:360:13:38

That was how Cam Newton warmed up.

0:13:380:13:41

Are we being slightly unfair

or is it fair enough?

0:13:410:13:43

Mark, that is youth!

0:13:430:13:44

Drew Brees has to prepare

his body like that!

0:13:440:13:47

Cam Newton is still playing, man!

0:13:470:13:54

He is still young, he can do that,

he can run around before the game!

0:13:540:13:58

A lot of times when we spoke

about the Saints this season,

0:13:580:14:01

we spoke about Ingram and Kamara

and their running game.

0:14:010:14:04

We have touched on Drew

Brees occasionally.

0:14:040:14:06

But during the coverage

of this game, he was huge

0:14:060:14:08

on Drew Brees and how he trained.

0:14:080:14:10

Bateman had gone to watch him

in practice, not only practising

0:14:100:14:13

the accurate throws,

but also getting his receiving court

0:14:130:14:15

to react to perhaps the ones that

would be just slightly off and these

0:14:150:14:18

are the two plays

that he raved about.

0:14:180:14:25

This is all about the body

positioning of the defender.

0:14:250:14:27

He is throwing the ball

where the defender is and these

0:14:270:14:30

are the things that you work

on in practice.

0:14:300:14:32

You look at that and you might

think it is underthrown,

0:14:320:14:34

but he threw it at the shoulder

that the defender was not covering.

0:14:340:14:37

This makes it so hard

as a defender to make the play,

0:14:370:14:40

because you step back

from the shoulder and

0:14:400:14:42

you cannot get there.

0:14:420:14:43

This is the play that he

really, really liked.

0:14:430:14:45

You know, he was a sensational

quarterback and he will have seen

0:14:450:14:48

a lot of quarterbacks practice.

0:14:480:14:50

Absolutely, man.

0:14:500:14:52

Use either throw here,

this is just outstanding.

0:14:520:14:54

This is what you call

throwing into space,

0:14:540:14:55

in a place where the defender has

absolutely nothing to do.

0:14:550:14:58

There is no way he can cover that,

because is throwing

0:14:580:15:01

to the back shoulder...

0:15:010:15:02

It is about how the receiver

reacts to it as well.

0:15:020:15:04

Practice, practice, practice.

0:15:040:15:05

This is old school Drew Brees.

0:15:050:15:07

Against his former club.

0:15:070:15:08

By the way, Drew Brees, 71% pass

completion for the regular season.

0:15:110:15:14

That is a record.

0:15:140:15:16

He throws, he holds three

of the top five single

0:15:160:15:19

season completion ratios.

0:15:190:15:27

Eight men on the broadcast,

then telestrated this play again.

0:15:310:15:33

And Jason, what do you see?

0:15:330:15:34

Because a lot of us

will just see a bicycle!

0:15:340:15:37

But what are you seeing?

0:15:370:15:38

What I'm seeing here

is the cover three zone beater.

0:15:380:15:40

And I'm seeing what Drew Brees does

well, he can throw the ball

0:15:400:15:44

vertically down the field.

0:15:440:15:45

And what you see at the bottom,

this corner he has this deep third.

0:15:450:15:48

But on his side he has another play

that takes him away from this.

0:15:480:15:51

And he sneaks it right

back behind him.

0:15:510:15:53

Drew Brees does.

0:15:530:15:54

And this is what he does best.

0:15:540:16:00

So who is Drew Brees looking

at more, step in and point.

0:16:000:16:03

I would just go behind the screen!

0:16:030:16:05

So basically what is

happening is this!

0:16:050:16:07

Basically this is what zone

he is trying to attack, OK.

0:16:070:16:09

Number 24, Bradbury,

that is what he has.

0:16:090:16:11

So basically what you want to do,

on this side you want to run

0:16:110:16:15

a short rout to making get

what we call greedy.

0:16:150:16:18

Right.

0:16:180:16:19

Just hesitate a second.

0:16:190:16:20

And that hesitation is

what Drew Brees takes advantage of.

0:16:200:16:22

And you see it right here.

0:16:220:16:24

One little hesitation,

and that is his zone.

0:16:240:16:26

That is the cover three beater,

you bring that guy across the field

0:16:260:16:29

and that is what happens.

0:16:290:16:30

To be honest with you watching

Drew Brees dissect the Carolina

0:16:300:16:33

defence, it brought a tear

to my eye.

0:16:330:16:35

Because all the talk

was about Kamara, Ingram,

0:16:350:16:37

all the great running backs.

0:16:370:16:38

People forgot what a great

quarterback he was.

0:16:380:16:40

Kind of like something that

happened here on our show.

0:16:400:16:43

People kind of forgot the great

quarterback that we had here!

0:16:430:16:47

He came back to us, man!

0:16:470:16:49

And showed himself.

0:16:490:16:50

That is what I'm talking about.

0:16:500:16:52

That wasn't even rehearsed!

0:16:520:16:53

I feel all emotional.

0:16:530:16:57

The NFL will be looking

at what happened to Cam Newton

0:16:570:17:00

and concussion protocol.

0:17:000:17:01

He was the victim of

a big hit in this game.

0:17:010:17:05

And he subsequently,

and I think the Panthers have said

0:17:050:17:07

there was something in his eye.

0:17:070:17:11

But if they followed the concussion

protocol, he got taken off,

0:17:110:17:16

he went into the blue tent and then

he should have gone

0:17:160:17:19

into the locker room as well, yes?

0:17:190:17:21

Right, but nobody knows

what happened in that blue tent.

0:17:210:17:23

No one knows.

0:17:230:17:24

What he was trying to do was get

more time for the back up

0:17:240:17:28

quarterback to come on.

0:17:280:17:29

As players, we have done that

before, we know this happens.

0:17:290:17:31

With the concussion rules

and the protocol, everybody has

0:17:310:17:33

a watchful eye on these things.

0:17:330:17:35

There was something

in his eye, all right!

0:17:350:17:38

But I mean, it is a serious issue.

0:17:380:17:43

It is serious, we're taking a lot

of risk playing football.

0:17:430:17:45

You cannot allow him to go out

on the football field if he has

0:17:450:17:49

an issue with his head.

0:17:490:17:51

I do not think they handled

that the right way, they should have

0:17:510:17:54

looked further into what happened.

0:17:540:17:56

We will preview the divisional games

more on Saturday on the show,

0:17:560:17:58

by the way, which will be

after Match Of The Day.

0:17:580:18:01

We will preview all of

the divisional games and take a look

0:18:010:18:04

at the 2018 London games

which will be announced this

0:18:040:18:06

coming Thursday as well.

0:18:060:18:07

And all of our shows

are on the iPlayer.

0:18:070:18:10

But there is a growing

belief that the Saints

0:18:100:18:12

could go to the Super Bowl?

0:18:120:18:13

I'm a believer!

0:18:130:18:14

Not just from you, I mean...

0:18:140:18:16

The only person that matters!

0:18:160:18:17

I know that you were nice to me,

but it is not all about you!

0:18:170:18:20

12 months ago Atlanta

started their playoff journey,

0:18:200:18:22

which ended in brutal fashion

at Super Bowl 51.

0:18:220:18:26

The memories of letting a 28-3 lead

slip to New England are ones Falcons

0:18:260:18:29

fans would like to forget, fast.

0:18:290:18:32

Back on the playoff path,

they started 2018 in Los Angeles

0:18:320:18:36

against a Rams side that

have defied expectation.

0:18:360:18:39

A lot has happened in the 32 years

since the Rams hosted playoff

0:18:390:18:42

football in Los Angeles.

0:18:420:18:46

In 1986 the New England Patriots had

none of their five Super Bowl wins,

0:18:460:18:49

but more to the point quarterback

Jared Goff and head coach

0:18:490:18:52

Sean McVay were not even born.

0:18:520:18:56

Sean McVay were not even born.

0:18:560:18:59

The 2017 Rams reset is underway.

0:18:590:19:05

The perfect fit to lead

the Los Angeles Rams was Sean McVay.

0:19:050:19:10

For the first time since 2003

the Rams are the best in the West.

0:19:100:19:17

Rams, here comes Atlanta.

0:19:170:19:21

Don't do nobody

else's job but yours!

0:19:210:19:25

One step at a time!

0:19:250:19:32

Take advantage of this moment!

0:19:320:19:36

We are confident, we

believe in ourselves.

0:19:360:19:38

And we believe in our

experience in the past.

0:19:380:19:41

It is never more

important than this week.

0:19:410:19:49

COMMENTARY: The game is not

even six minutes old.

0:19:510:19:55

Two explosive offences.

0:19:550:19:56

No first downs yet.

0:19:560:19:57

Four three and outs.

0:19:570:20:00

Cooper back to run it back.

0:20:000:20:02

Backs up.

0:20:020:20:03

Comes forward.

0:20:030:20:07

Starts for the fair catch

then has to let it go.

0:20:070:20:09

And the ball is loose.

0:20:090:20:12

And it hit Cooper and if the Falcons

recover it, they're going

0:20:120:20:15

to be in great shape.

0:20:150:20:19

And they think they have,

waiting for the crew

0:20:190:20:21

to come in and let us know.

0:20:210:20:23

Atlanta's ball.

0:20:230:20:26

No question, Cooper

touched the ball.

0:20:260:20:28

But then there is a state

of confusion out there as the other

0:20:280:20:31

players were confused.

0:20:310:20:32

Do we grab it, do we not?

0:20:320:20:34

We're not sure.

0:20:340:20:35

Countess didn't know

exactly what to do.

0:20:350:20:36

And ultimately that cost

the Rams the football.

0:20:360:20:39

And that is a huge play

for the Atlanta Falcons.

0:20:390:20:43

STUDIO: The Falcons converted

to the turnover into the opening

0:20:430:20:47

points courtesy of 29 yard

Matt Bryant field goal.

0:20:470:20:54

He extended the lead to six from 51

yards after a Rams three and out.

0:20:540:21:02

COMMENTARY: Cooper from the nine

yard line to run it back.

0:21:020:21:05

Spins away.

0:21:050:21:10

Loses the ball and Atlanta may have

come up with the 32 yard line.

0:21:100:21:13

And it is going to be

Atlanta's ball.

0:21:130:21:15

Cooper got spun around.

0:21:150:21:16

He lost his vision and Kazee

was able to come in and

0:21:160:21:19

punch that thing out.

0:21:190:21:21

Now it is game on again.

0:21:210:21:26

Second down and goal from the three.

0:21:260:21:31

At the top.

0:21:310:21:39

Freeman is going to bust his way

as he leads, and gets in.

0:21:430:21:46

Touchdown.

0:21:460:21:47

Alex Mack, the pro ball centre.

0:21:470:21:49

Watch the centre, Alex Mack.

0:21:490:21:50

He is going to come off his block,

a little bit too early,

0:21:500:21:53

but then he's going to see Freeman

stuck at the goal line.

0:21:530:21:56

So here he comes, giving

him a big Bear hug.

0:21:560:21:58

And just slamming him

into the end zone.

0:21:580:22:00

3rd and five.

0:22:000:22:02

Goff will throw to the end zone.

0:22:020:22:03

In by Cooper Kupp, touchdown.

0:22:030:22:05

Great play by Robert Woods.

0:22:050:22:10

His job is to pick down here,

when he saw he didn't

0:22:100:22:12

have the great angle,

and that Kupp was going to win

0:22:120:22:15

anyway, he let it go.

0:22:150:22:16

Didn't get the call against him.

0:22:160:22:18

And here we go, Rams.

0:22:180:22:22

STUDIO: After the Rams touchdown,

the kickers took over.

0:22:220:22:27

Matt Bryant and Sam Ficken

with two field goals apiece.

0:22:270:22:30

Meaning the Rams trailed

by six points midway

0:22:300:22:32

through the fourth quarter.

0:22:320:22:37

COMMENTARY: Seven and a half to go.

0:22:370:22:39

2nd and 13.

0:22:390:22:43

That is Mohamed Sanu.

0:22:430:22:45

Off to the races he goes.

0:22:450:22:48

And tackled at the ten

yard line by Joyner.

0:22:480:22:51

Huge play by the Falcons.

0:22:510:22:54

52 yards, beautiful.

0:22:540:22:57

Give a little credit

to Schweitzer coming out here.

0:22:570:22:59

Everybody is going to block out that

way and Mohamed Sanu

0:22:590:23:02

comes back inside.

0:23:020:23:04

It was Schweitzer who got out

in front of it and created just

0:23:040:23:07

enough of a distraction to send this

one to the races.

0:23:070:23:10

Second down and goal.

0:23:100:23:15

That pass in by Jones

for a touchdown.

0:23:150:23:20

A floater, and he is

able to make the catch.

0:23:200:23:25

Watch what Matt Ryan

does with this lollipop!

0:23:250:23:27

Just buys Julio Jones a little time.

0:23:270:23:31

And there was John Johnson out

there, a gutsy call,

0:23:310:23:38

a gutsy throw.

0:23:390:23:40

Very much.

0:23:400:23:41

Back foot was sliding on the grass.

0:23:410:23:43

Had to get the ball

to 46 for a first down.

0:23:430:23:48

Goff fires, finally Sammy Watkins

makes a catch, and a big one here,

0:23:480:23:51

as he spins the ball away

to the 50 yard line.

0:23:510:23:54

First down.

0:23:540:23:58

Robert Woods...

0:23:580:24:02

He makes the catch.

0:24:020:24:03

He has the first down.

0:24:030:24:05

He is out of bounds and has control

before he steps out.

0:24:050:24:09

Let's see.

0:24:090:24:10

No, no.

0:24:100:24:12

And there.

0:24:120:24:15

Malcolm Brown to go wide,

third down and goal.

0:24:150:24:23

Goff fires and in for the touchdown!

0:24:230:24:26

Higbee, the tight end.

0:24:260:24:27

They're going to take

a look at this.

0:24:270:24:33

Scoring reviewed,

does he hold onto it,

0:24:330:24:34

does he have possession,

does he survive the ground?

0:24:340:24:36

As the saying goes?

0:24:360:24:37

A little loose.

0:24:370:24:39

Incomplete.

0:24:390:24:41

Oh, boy.

0:24:410:24:43

The ball came out

and hit the ground.

0:24:430:24:45

It was therefore an incomplete pass.

0:24:450:24:47

It is fourth down

on the five yard line.

0:24:470:24:55

You have got Goff.

0:25:010:25:02

And Goff looking, throwing,

and it is not caught.

0:25:020:25:04

Is there a flag?

0:25:040:25:05

There is no flag.

0:25:050:25:06

Dion Jones breaks it up,

intended for Sammy Watkins.

0:25:060:25:08

And Atlanta will take over.

0:25:080:25:09

The final score is 26 - 13.

0:25:090:25:11

The Atlanta Falcons over

the Los Angeles Rams.

0:25:110:25:16

I think when you look back on it,

certainly starting with me,

0:25:160:25:19

there is a lot of things we can do

just to put players in better

0:25:190:25:22

positions to have success.

0:25:220:25:23

Any time you lose the turnover

battle you're going to make it

0:25:230:25:26

extremely difficult on yourself.

0:25:260:25:28

What a total team effort,

it came from our group of guys.

0:25:280:25:31

This is certainly a battle tested

brotherhood for us and I thought

0:25:310:25:33

that paid off tonight.

0:25:330:25:39

We are building a foundation

where that trajectories pointing

0:25:390:25:41

upward for the Rams.

0:25:410:25:42

And it starts with a bunch of great

people and that is what we do have.

0:25:420:25:46

We're really pumped

on the performance tonight,

0:25:460:25:48

I felt the guys displayed a lot

of toughness and resilience.

0:25:480:25:50

And you know, we have a lot to prove

and we're certainly looking

0:25:500:25:53

forward to our next game.

0:25:530:25:56

So Atlanta's shot at Super Bowl

redemption contiues after that

0:25:560:26:00

controlled win in Los Angeles.

0:26:000:26:02

As the lowest ranked seed they go

to number 1 seeds Philadelphia,

0:26:020:26:05

where they'll no doubt sense

an opportunity at an Eagles

0:26:050:26:08

team minus Carson Wentz.

0:26:080:26:09

In the other tie 4th seeds

New Orleans head to Minnesota

0:26:090:26:12

for a mouthwatering game

against the Vikings.

0:26:120:26:17

Dan Quinn described his players

as battle tested brotherhood.

0:26:170:26:21

Can you simplify and say

it was a team full

0:26:210:26:25

of experience in the play-offs

against an inexperienced team in the

0:26:250:26:28

Rams, can you say that?

0:26:280:26:29

I can say that.

0:26:290:26:30

Why can you say that?

0:26:300:26:32

Because there is nothing

more important in

0:26:320:26:33

football than being

experienced in a situation,

0:26:330:26:37

especially a situation of

football.

0:26:370:26:39

And they have been through all those

situations because of the

0:26:390:26:41

last year.

0:26:410:26:42

So whatever happens in the game,

you are prepared for it.

0:26:420:26:45

There's no question about that.

0:26:450:26:50

Obviously we knew that

the Rams were a young

0:26:500:26:52

football team, we knew

that

0:26:520:26:53

they had a bunch of talent.

0:26:530:26:55

But the Atlanta Falcons,

their battle

0:26:550:26:56

tested, battle hardened.

0:26:560:26:57

And they showed that

throughout the entire

0:26:570:26:59

football game.

0:26:590:27:00

The Rams offence has been

so exciting this season and we

0:27:000:27:03

have gone on about it loads.

0:27:030:27:04

And yet the Atlanta

defence to all intents

0:27:040:27:06

and purposes, shut it down.

0:27:060:27:08

First of all, look

at how they pressured Goff.

0:27:080:27:10

To all intents and purposes.

0:27:100:27:13

I used to think

it was intensive purposes.

0:27:130:27:15

It is intents and purposes.

0:27:150:27:16

OK.

0:27:160:27:17

Obviously, I mean,

going up against a young

0:27:170:27:19

quarterback, you want to put

pressure on the quarterback.

0:27:190:27:21

And you can see the

Atlanta Falcons do this

0:27:210:27:24

tremendously.

0:27:240:27:25

Nowhere to step up, swarming him.

0:27:250:27:26

You see the guy coming at the edge,

Mike Harris, he is an

0:27:260:27:29

outstanding football player.

0:27:290:27:30

Coming up the edge,

bringing the guy down.

0:27:300:27:32

And up the middle

here, just pressure.

0:27:320:27:34

Sometimes it is not even

about getting sacked.

0:27:340:27:36

Sometimes you just

want to make the guy

0:27:360:27:38

uncomfortable in the pocket and

force him to make throws and you see

0:27:380:27:41

him right here, hesitating,

holding on to the football.

0:27:410:27:43

So it plants that seed of doubt.

0:27:430:27:45

It doesn't matter if you don't

hit it, but if you get

0:27:450:27:51

near it plants the seed of doubt.

0:27:510:27:52

It makes him uncomfortable, makes

and start thinking, makes him start

0:27:520:27:55

chasing ghosts, is what

we like to call it.

0:27:550:27:57

That is what happened to him.

0:27:570:27:59

Tom Gurley has been such a weapon

for them as well over the

0:27:590:28:02

course of this season.

0:28:020:28:03

Atlanta dealt with him.

0:28:030:28:04

But they also dealt

with the receivers as well.

0:28:040:28:06

Which is your area of expertise.

0:28:060:28:07

So the floor is all yours!

0:28:070:28:09

I love it!

0:28:090:28:10

One thing about this

team, they are a great

0:28:100:28:12

tackling defence.

0:28:120:28:13

And they knew they had to do this.

0:28:130:28:15

If you look right here,

Brian Poole and this tackle he

0:28:150:28:18

makes on Gurley.

0:28:180:28:19

This is what you have to do.

0:28:190:28:20

You have to be able

to tackle in the open field.

0:28:200:28:23

Get him down, one-on-one tackles.

0:28:230:28:24

You must win against

a back like Gurley.

0:28:240:28:26

And you see that going

through and being

0:28:260:28:28

successful.

0:28:280:28:29

And right here Alfred,

usually the number two corner on

0:28:290:28:31

this team, he had a great game.

0:28:310:28:33

As you see right there,

against the speed receiver,

0:28:330:28:35

he makes a big play.

0:28:350:28:36

Once again Gurley, and this is team

tackling, get on the ground.

0:28:360:28:44

Don't let him breakthrough.

0:28:450:28:50

And here you see a play

by the other quarter, who

0:28:500:28:52

has two brothers by the way

in play in the NFL.

0:28:520:28:55

All corners, making

a good play right there.

0:28:550:28:57

And that is what you've got to do.

0:28:570:28:59

As far as the Rams are

concerned, just a quick one

0:28:590:29:01

on them.

0:29:010:29:02

In many ways this season they have

actually been ahead of

0:29:020:29:05

schedule compared to where

they were last season.

0:29:050:29:07

So they should not be too

downhearted at losing in the

0:29:070:29:10

play-offs.

0:29:100:29:11

They should not be

disappointed at all.

0:29:110:29:12

They had a fantastic

season, given the

0:29:120:29:14

expectations.

0:29:140:29:15

Nobody thought they were going

to come as far as they

0:29:150:29:18

came.

0:29:180:29:19

And this is an outstanding young

football team with a good

0:29:190:29:21

nucleus.

0:29:210:29:22

They're going to be a formidable

team for years to come.

0:29:220:29:25

Yes, but they've got

to sign Aaron Donald.

0:29:250:29:27

He was arguably the best

defensive player in football.

0:29:270:29:29

They've got to get him back.

0:29:290:29:31

Big money.

0:29:310:29:32

They opened the regular season

with a huge win in New England

0:29:320:29:35

and quickly went to 5-0.

0:29:350:29:36

Osi aside, Kansas City

were being talked of by many

0:29:360:29:38

as Super Bowl contenders.

0:29:380:29:39

A rocky period ensued for the Chiefs

with 5 wins from 11,

0:29:390:29:42

however they made the post season

and face a Tennessee team

0:29:420:29:45

without a playoff win since 2003.

0:29:450:29:46

As Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota

makes his first appearance

0:29:460:29:48

in the playoffs a worrying stat hung

over Arrowhead stadium -

0:29:480:29:51

the Chiefs have lost their last

five home playoff games.

0:29:510:29:59

COMMENTARY: This time

a touchdown for Kareem Hunt.

0:30:020:30:06

Hard to stop.

0:30:060:30:09

You could hand the ball

to Kareem Hunt, Alex Smith can keep

0:30:090:30:12

it, and it is miserable

on a defence.

0:30:120:30:16

Touchdown, that was easy.

0:30:160:30:19

Travis Kelce in the endzone

for Kansas City.

0:30:190:30:23

Alex Smith, some of these

plays are hard to defend.

0:30:230:30:26

Play-action pass.

0:30:260:30:27

You see Williamson step up.

0:30:270:30:35

STUDIO: Ryan Succop's 49 yard field

goal put the Titans on the board.

0:30:390:30:43

They trailed by 11 points with less

than two minutes left in the half.

0:30:430:30:47

COMMENTARY: Smith over the middle.

0:30:470:30:49

Travis Kelce might be hurt,

he went down to the ground.

0:30:490:30:51

The ball is out, the play dead.

0:30:510:30:53

Oh, boy.

0:30:530:30:54

Oh, boy.

0:30:540:30:56

Travis Kelce very wobbly as he tried

to get back onto his feet.

0:30:560:31:00

You could tell the moment he went

down towards the ground.

0:31:000:31:06

Cyprian, number 37, with a big hit.

0:31:060:31:08

Travis Kelce will certainly go

through the concussion protocol.

0:31:080:31:13

Wide-open!

0:31:130:31:15

And a touchdown.

0:31:150:31:17

With three seconds

to go in the half.

0:31:170:31:20

It is a two deep zone.

0:31:200:31:21

He threw the ball between

the corner and safety.

0:31:210:31:26

Third down on goal.

0:31:260:31:30

Tennessee in dire need

of six and not three.

0:31:300:31:32

Marcus Mariota.

0:31:320:31:35

Mariota to the line of scrimmage.

0:31:350:31:36

Maybe across the line.

0:31:360:31:39

It deflects back to

him for a touchdown.

0:31:390:31:41

For the moment.

0:31:410:31:47

But was he across

the line of scrimmage?

0:31:470:31:49

I believe that is touchdown,

and one you will not

0:31:490:31:51

see for a long time.

0:31:510:31:55

Eddie Reid interested

to see the replay.

0:31:550:31:57

The ball goes right back to Mariota.

0:31:570:32:01

Quarterback in behind the line.

0:32:010:32:02

It is a touchdown.

0:32:020:32:04

It is Mariota to Mariota.

0:32:040:32:07

He has had a hard time throwing

touchdown passes this year.

0:32:070:32:09

He will take it

anyway he can get it.

0:32:090:32:14

There is an uneasiness

that is palpable in this stadium.

0:32:140:32:17

Kansas City did not have a first

down in the third quarter.

0:32:170:32:20

They had just six yards.

0:32:200:32:25

The Titans had the ball

for nearly 11 minutes.

0:32:250:32:27

Henry ripping through!

0:32:270:32:28

Henry inside the 20.

0:32:280:32:29

Henry inside the five.

0:32:290:32:30

Touchdown, Tennessee!

0:32:300:32:34

Three Kansas City Chiefs over here.

0:32:340:32:36

You see the right guard,

and they punished the Chiefs.

0:32:360:32:42

Play clock running

down the whole while.

0:32:420:32:50

They get it off.

0:32:500:32:53

And the pass is dropped

in front of Charles.

0:32:530:32:55

That probably would have been

Travis Kelce, instead it is Charles

0:32:550:32:58

who has 11 career catches.

0:32:580:32:59

The defensive coordinator

of the Chiefs looking

0:32:590:33:01

for the right call.

0:33:010:33:02

His defence has been on the field

this entire second half.

0:33:020:33:04

From the 22, 2nd and ten.

0:33:040:33:07

Mariota over the line,

touchdown, Tennessee!

0:33:070:33:10

Eric Decker hangs on to that one

for one of the biggest

0:33:100:33:13

catches of his life.

0:33:130:33:16

Tennessee has got to go again.

0:33:160:33:18

They have to find a way to get

the proper play call.

0:33:180:33:22

Bringing Henry to what seems to be

the proper place for him.

0:33:220:33:25

Spread out to the right.

0:33:250:33:27

And he is going to be down.

0:33:270:33:30

The crowd going crazy.

0:33:300:33:36

The play stopped, it does not

matter, this place is going crazy.

0:33:360:33:42

Just got a little extra exercise!

0:33:420:33:46

Third down and nine.

0:33:460:33:49

Four-man rush and he is down

at the line of scrimmage.

0:33:490:33:53

In the arms of Derrick Morgan.

0:33:530:33:55

The season for the Chiefs

could come down to this play.

0:33:550:33:59

Fourth down and nine.

0:33:590:34:01

Down by a plate, they led 21-3.

0:34:010:34:03

Alex Smith.

0:34:030:34:05

Throws deep down the field

and it is incomplete.

0:34:050:34:08

Off the fingertips of Wilson.

0:34:080:34:11

And Tennessee will take over.

0:34:110:34:19

Disbelief in Kansas City,

is it going to happen again?

0:34:190:34:21

They've lost five

straight home play-offs.

0:34:210:34:23

The NFL record.

0:34:230:34:24

In a place where it is so hard

for the opponent to win.

0:34:240:34:27

They have led 21-3 today and now

the Chiefs really up against it.

0:34:270:34:30

1st & ten.

0:34:300:34:31

And the ball comes out.

0:34:310:34:36

The ball has come out -

Derek Johnson, the all-time

0:34:360:34:39

leading tackler.

0:34:390:34:40

With a touchdown!

0:34:400:34:41

For Kansas City.

0:34:410:34:42

Marcus Peters ripped it

away from Derrick Henry.

0:34:420:34:46

A lot of commotion on the Tennessee

sideline, they think

0:34:460:34:49

that Henry was down.

0:34:490:34:51

And it looks like he definitely was.

0:34:510:34:53

Was the ball starting to come out?

0:34:530:34:54

He has possession of it.

0:34:540:34:59

Contact on the 46 yard line.

0:34:590:35:02

3rd and ten.

0:35:020:35:04

No safety in the middle

of the field.

0:35:040:35:09

So what would you do?

0:35:090:35:16

Mariota blocks Henry.

0:35:160:35:17

1st down and more.

0:35:170:35:18

Marcus is in there to

throw a block for Henry.

0:35:180:35:20

They gave it again,

in the fourth quarter.

0:35:200:35:22

He has delivered the Titans

into the next round of the playoffs.

0:35:220:35:25

They run a spread formation.

0:35:250:35:26

They run a zone read.

0:35:260:35:34

They do not block Frank

until Marcus Mariota picks him

0:35:340:35:36

up late.

0:35:360:35:38

Boos cascading down from the fans

as the Chiefs lose their

0:35:380:35:40

fourth playoff game.

0:35:400:35:44

One of the greatest

wins I have ever been a

0:35:440:35:47

part of.

0:35:470:35:48

Greatest wins.

0:35:480:35:49

Thank you guys.

0:35:490:35:51

I appreciate everyone of you.

0:35:510:35:54

Playing the way that you play,

and trusting the process.

0:35:540:35:56

And believing in yourselves.

0:35:560:36:04

You guys have done that the whole

year, and you have

0:36:040:36:07

been resilient since

I have known you.

0:36:070:36:08

And don't ever count this team out.

0:36:080:36:10

Hey, we are not done yet, man,

we have the big boys next week, so

0:36:100:36:14

get your minds right!

0:36:140:36:15

One, two, three.

0:36:150:36:17

We will come on to Mike Malarkey.

0:36:170:36:20

I have got my hand in.

0:36:200:36:22

We will come on to

Mike Malarkey, their

0:36:220:36:24

head coach very shortly.

0:36:240:36:30

It was a cracking game,

but did it all change

0:36:300:36:34

when Travis Kelce went off?

0:36:340:36:35

You look at the reaction

of the crowd when he

0:36:350:36:37

scored the touchdown.

0:36:370:36:38

They were pumped, there was energy,

everything went flat when he went

0:36:380:36:41

off.

0:36:410:36:42

Absolutely.

0:36:420:36:43

And it is because of how

dangerous he is as a player.

0:36:430:36:46

As you see this right here.

0:36:460:36:48

This is what he does,

he was effective in

0:36:480:36:50

the red zone.

0:36:500:36:51

He is what their offense runs

through, besides the

0:36:510:36:53

running game and when

he goes off the field,

0:36:530:36:55

he completely changes

the

0:36:550:36:56

dynamic of how that

offense was flowing.

0:36:560:36:58

It was an outstanding hit.

0:36:580:36:59

He is playing fast,

physical and lose.

0:36:590:37:01

There is nothing that guy

could have done besides hit

0:37:010:37:03

him that way.

0:37:030:37:04

That is the way you're

supposed to play football.

0:37:040:37:06

But a guy like Travis

Kelce, one A and one B

0:37:060:37:09

with Rob Gronkowski as far

as the top players in the league.

0:37:090:37:13

You can see as he

wobbled there was no

0:37:130:37:15

chance of him coming

back on with the whole

0:37:150:37:17

concussion protocol.

0:37:170:37:18

Then when we got into

the second half, we

0:37:180:37:20

saw a freer Marcus Mariota, who did

everything he possibly could to win

0:37:200:37:23

the game for Tennessee,

including catching his own pass.

0:37:230:37:27

Life was good for markers, right?

0:37:270:37:29

Ultimately, what he did was...

0:37:290:37:32

Particularly, because at the end

of this first half, by

0:37:320:37:34

Particularly, because at the end

of this first half, by

0:37:340:37:38

the way, this was one of the hits.

0:37:380:37:40

He took that hit.

0:37:400:37:41

That is a delayed blitz right here.

0:37:410:37:43

They do not account for it

in the defensive line

0:37:430:37:45

and I cannot believe

he got up so easily.

0:37:450:37:48

Then he comes out, before the second

half, and does that.

0:37:480:37:50

Times are good for him right now.

0:37:500:37:56

They say he is a good

guy, and we see it

0:37:560:37:59

right now.

0:37:590:38:00

Ultimately, you have to be

athletic to catch that ball.

0:38:000:38:02

You have got to make the plays.

0:38:020:38:04

He just wants to do

anything to win the

0:38:040:38:06

game.

0:38:060:38:07

Did you see how he threw his

right shoulder in there?

0:38:070:38:10

That is his throwing arm.

0:38:100:38:11

That is the guy saying,

I don't care what is going

0:38:110:38:14

to happen, we need to win this game.

0:38:140:38:16

Most quarterbacks would not even

think about doing that.

0:38:160:38:18

Look at his team-mates.

0:38:180:38:19

Look how they appreciate

what this guy was able to do.

0:38:190:38:22

They gave him the

freedom in the second

0:38:220:38:24

half, didn't they,

to run the offense,

0:38:240:38:25

because they were trailing,

they needed to be quick.

0:38:250:38:27

The play calling did

not happen as much,

0:38:270:38:29

which is what I think a lot

of Tennessee Titans fans have been

0:38:290:38:32

calling for all season?

0:38:320:38:33

If you go back to his days

of playing quarterback,

0:38:330:38:36

this is exactly what he did.

0:38:360:38:37

You have to turn

a guy like this lose.

0:38:370:38:39

He makes plays with his legs.

0:38:390:38:41

He makes plays

with his arm, whenever

0:38:410:38:43

he has to.

0:38:430:38:44

He is an outstanding young

quarterback, and he will show

0:38:440:38:46

that in the second

half of this game.

0:38:460:38:48

Sport is strange, because at

half-time, Mark Malarkey was

0:38:480:38:50

probably losing his job as head

coach at Tennessee and now he

0:38:500:38:53

certainly will not be, firstly.

0:38:530:38:54

Yeah.

0:38:540:38:55

Alex Smith would have been

going on to divisional games, may be

0:38:550:38:58

a Championship game,

now, and that defeat

0:38:580:39:00

was not his fault, was it?

0:39:000:39:01

He could be on his way out,

0:39:010:39:03

all the indications

are that

0:39:030:39:04

he will be.

0:39:040:39:05

You know, obviously

they have a young

0:39:050:39:07

guy who they drafted

in

0:39:070:39:08

last year, in Patrick Mahones,

who came into the game and showed

0:39:080:39:11

something in the last

regular season game.

0:39:110:39:13

Showed that he could actually

lead this football team.

0:39:130:39:15

Alex Smith, even though he is a good

quarterback, he is just not that

0:39:150:39:18

elite quarterback who can get

you to that next level

0:39:180:39:20

and he did not get the job done

for the Chiefs this

0:39:200:39:23

year.

0:39:230:39:24

Alex Smith had a great year.

0:39:240:39:26

And he had a great game.

0:39:260:39:27

He had five dropped

passes in this game.

0:39:270:39:29

It was not his fault

and he is going to be

0:39:290:39:32

a great quarterback next

year for another team.

0:39:320:39:34

We are going through this again?

0:39:340:39:35

All right.

0:39:350:39:36

Seldom is an opposing

player lauded quite like

0:39:360:39:38

Andy Dalton was in

Buffalo last week.

0:39:380:39:40

Dalton's game winning drive

for Cincinnati defeated Baltimore

0:39:400:39:42

and handed Buffalo it's first trip

to the playoffs since

0:39:420:39:44

the 1999 season.

0:39:440:39:45

Bills fans reacted with class

by donating in their droves

0:39:450:39:48

to Dalton's foundation,

$345,000 to be exact.

0:39:480:39:56

Heading to the defensive juggernaut

that is Jacksonsonville,

0:39:560:39:58

themselves hosting a playoff game

for the first time since 2000,

0:39:580:40:00

i wonder how much Bills

fans would donate to

0:40:000:40:02

the Blake Bortles Foundation should

he throw them a few interceptions!

0:40:020:40:14

So here is how they end the

postseason for the 16th year in a

0:40:140:40:18

row.

0:40:180:40:19

His old team Seattle is out.

0:40:190:40:20

They could not make it this year

and there is the flag out.

0:40:200:40:23

Oh, they have got it on both sides!

0:40:230:40:25

Defense.

0:40:250:40:26

I think it was Smith.

0:40:260:40:27

He was anxious.

0:40:270:40:28

Half the distance.

0:40:280:40:30

That will put you roughly

about the one and a half...

0:40:300:40:32

Which would be a 1st down, would it?

0:40:320:40:37

Yeah, it is a 1st down.

0:40:370:40:39

Out of the eye, up top.

0:40:390:40:40

Pass.

0:40:400:40:41

Benjamin.

0:40:410:40:42

Flag out on Ramsay?

0:40:420:40:43

No.

0:40:430:40:44

I think that is going the other way!

0:40:440:40:46

That has got to be an offense.

0:40:460:40:48

Ramsey did not do anything there.

0:40:480:40:49

We will see if they call

it, but usually...

0:40:490:40:51

Offense.

0:40:510:40:53

There you go.

0:40:530:40:54

The Bills eventually settled

for a field goal to open the

0:40:540:40:56

scoring.

0:40:560:40:57

Steven Hauschka going over

eventually at 31 yards.

0:40:570:41:00

The Jaguars in business

at the 47th, after a

0:41:000:41:02

punt of only 37 yards.

0:41:020:41:03

They have got to get points

here, as soon as they

0:41:030:41:06

give you a chance to throw it

outside the field, I would take it

0:41:060:41:09

back.

0:41:090:41:13

Here is Blake .

0:41:130:41:14

Stepping up and running.

0:41:140:41:15

Biggest play of the game

for the Jacksonville fans,

0:41:150:41:17

all the way down the field goal

territory in the 32.

0:41:170:41:20

From here, it would be about a 51

yard field goal if they do not

0:41:200:41:23

manage to pick up

anything on 3rd down.

0:41:230:41:28

Able to get away from a sack

and again, for another first, Blake

0:41:280:41:31

Bortles doing it with his legs.

0:41:310:41:32

Josh Lambeau's 42

yard field goal tied

0:41:320:41:35

the game at three all

going into half-time.

0:41:350:41:43

On 1st down.

0:41:440:41:49

He takes off.

0:41:490:41:51

About the 41.

0:41:510:41:54

Right over the ball, there it is.

0:41:540:41:56

That is Lewis with the catch.

0:41:560:41:59

Extra offensive lineman in the game.

0:41:590:42:04

A lot of teams pass

because they are so far

0:42:040:42:07

from the end zone.

0:42:070:42:08

If you are running here,

it is because you are

0:42:080:42:10

on 4th down.

0:42:100:42:11

Blake Bortles, hands it over.

0:42:110:42:12

Fournette.

0:42:120:42:13

Up and over and their

attempt to deny him.

0:42:130:42:16

Alexander has made

a number of big plays.

0:42:160:42:17

What a play by Alexander?

0:42:170:42:19

Look at him here.

0:42:190:42:20

Alexander, pulling him

with the back of his foot.

0:42:200:42:22

He could do anything

here, but I would still

0:42:220:42:25

give it to my guy.

0:42:250:42:26

Here we go, 4th & goal.

0:42:260:42:27

Blake Bortles stumbles for a moment.

0:42:270:42:29

Up top.

0:42:290:42:30

He has got his man

for the touchdown!

0:42:300:42:34

Koyack with the catch!

0:42:340:42:36

Big time throw by Blake Bortles.

0:42:360:42:42

Cover four again.

0:42:420:42:45

Taylor.

0:42:450:42:47

He has got time and now they

collapse on him and take him down.

0:42:470:42:51

That was Dante.

0:42:510:42:53

Taylor is down.

0:42:530:42:57

Give us one more look.

0:42:570:42:58

Fowler.

0:42:580:42:59

Takes him.

0:42:590:43:00

The back of his head

hits the ground.

0:43:000:43:08

And you can see, that is a pretty

decent concussion, most likely.

0:43:110:43:14

Right there.

0:43:140:43:15

Peterman is warming up.

0:43:150:43:16

Peterman, the rookie,

got a start at one point of the

0:43:160:43:19

season.

0:43:190:43:20

Here is Peterman in trouble.

0:43:200:43:21

He has got to get rid

of it or run with it.

0:43:210:43:24

He has taken off.

0:43:240:43:25

And...

0:43:250:43:26

Got to the 49, which is

enough for the first.

0:43:260:43:31

Peterman from the gun, here we go.

0:43:310:43:33

Intercepted by Ramsay!

0:43:330:43:34

Closes it out.

0:43:340:43:36

Taylor and Ramsay up top.

0:43:360:43:38

You might be looking

at the future best

0:43:380:43:43

players in the Football League.

0:43:430:43:45

The quarterback jumps

and he has got height

0:43:450:43:50

and speed and see the

athleticism.

0:43:500:43:51

Unbelievable game, Buffalo

unbelievable in the

0:43:510:43:53

playoffs, Jacksonville are going on.

0:43:530:43:54

The organisation has

gone through a lot.

0:43:540:43:56

You know what I am saying?

0:43:560:43:57

Guys who have been

through here have gone

0:43:570:43:59

through a lot.

0:43:590:44:00

But the people who have gone

through it the most have

0:44:000:44:03

been the fans.

0:44:030:44:04

We have not had a home

victory since 1999.

0:44:040:44:06

I want to make sure

that this game ball goes

0:44:060:44:08

to City Hall.

0:44:080:44:10

For the fans of Jacksonville.

0:44:100:44:11

Great game, great win.

0:44:110:44:12

Now let's go and get another one.

0:44:120:44:14

Let's go and get

another one, on three.

0:44:140:44:16

One, two, three...

0:44:160:44:17

Win!

0:44:170:44:21

So Jacksonville progress

onto the second seeded

0:44:210:44:23

team where they'll face

Ben Roethlisberger and

0:44:230:44:24

the Pittsburgh Steelers.

0:44:240:44:25

It's a repeat of the week 5 game

in Pittsburgh where Roethlisberger

0:44:250:44:28

threw a career high 5 interceptions

as the Jaguars ran out 30-9 winners.

0:44:280:44:33

Rest assured the Jaguars defence

will be targeting Roethlisberger

0:44:330:44:36

and Antonio Brown who looks set

to return from a calf injury.

0:44:360:44:39

Tennessee's surprise win

in Kansas City is rewarded

0:44:390:44:41

with a trip to a chilly New England.

0:44:410:44:44

The coldest ever game hosted

by the Patriots was a divisional

0:44:440:44:47

playoff 14 years ago against...

0:44:470:44:48

Tennessee!

0:44:480:44:50

Conditions are not expected to be

quite like the minus 15 degrees

0:44:500:44:53

it was back then but Titans fans

still might want to

0:44:530:44:56

pack some thermals.

0:44:560:44:57

And whilst we're at it

here's a quick reminder

0:44:570:44:59

of the NFC picture...

0:44:590:45:00

Super Bowl 51 losers Atlanta

continue their redemption tour

0:45:000:45:02

as they go to number 1 seeds

Philadelphia.

0:45:020:45:05

The Falcons will fancy their chances

against an Eagles team

0:45:050:45:08

without Carson Wentz.

0:45:080:45:15

And In the other tie Super Bowl 44

winners New Orleans head

0:45:150:45:18

to Minnesota to face a dangerous

Vikings side.

0:45:180:45:19

Cannot think of a player

who gets as criticised

0:45:190:45:22

as much as Blake Bortles.

0:45:220:45:23

At the moment and yet he has taken

Jacksonville to a divisional game,

0:45:230:45:26

not through his passing,

but through his running!

0:45:260:45:28

Listen, he did what ever he had

to do to get this team

0:45:280:45:31

to victory.

0:45:310:45:32

Obviously, he ran more

than he passed, which is just

0:45:320:45:34

mind-boggling if you think about it.

0:45:340:45:36

But you have to give him credit,

man, he hung in there, he knew what

0:45:360:45:39

his strengths were, he kept

on training and he tried

0:45:390:45:42

to get the job done.

0:45:420:45:43

You have got to figure it

out in the game, right?

0:45:430:45:46

You have got to respond and no...

0:45:460:45:47

And therefore he deserves

credit, doesn't he?

0:45:470:45:49

Absolutely!

0:45:490:45:50

The guy...

0:45:500:45:51

He knew it wasn't his day

throwing the ball, so

0:45:510:45:54

he knows he can run the ball.

0:45:540:45:55

He was a good runner

in college, he said, I

0:45:550:45:58

have to move the chains,

give my defense a rest

0:45:580:46:00

and let them win

the

0:46:000:46:02

game for me.

0:46:020:46:03

Throwing 12 out of 23 for 87 yards,

you know, as you go

0:46:030:46:06

further, that has to be a concern.

0:46:060:46:07

I don't care how good your defense

is, you are not going to get much

0:46:070:46:11

further in the playoffs,

going 12 423 in 87 yards.

0:46:110:46:13

At some point, they are going

to take away their run and

0:46:130:46:16

force you to pass the football and

Blake Bortles is going to have to do

0:46:160:46:20

that.

0:46:200:46:21

Which he has shown he

has the ability to do

0:46:210:46:23

in spurts this season.

0:46:230:46:24

But as you have both told me,

since Super Bowl 50 and Denver

0:46:240:46:27

beating Newton's Carolina,

defenses can win

0:46:270:46:29

Super Bowl is and there are not many

better defenses out there than

0:46:290:46:32

Jacksonville.

0:46:320:46:33

They can, but ultimately

they have to play smart

0:46:330:46:35

football and they

happen to be rested,

0:46:350:46:37

so they have to move

the

0:46:370:46:38

ball.

0:46:380:46:39

He has to find a way.

0:46:390:46:41

We will see!

0:46:410:46:42

I know!

0:46:420:46:43

But, they just seemed

to have a toughness about them.

0:46:430:46:45

And, as we have talked

about, this sort

0:46:450:46:47

of chip on their shoulder, that

everyone is against them, that they

0:46:470:46:50

are against the world,

they talk a lot to that

0:46:500:46:53

Jacksonville defense,

publicly, they get into the faces of

0:46:530:46:55

the opposition and I wonder whether

it makes you wonder, that is all.

0:46:550:46:58

They are very disrespected team,

there is no question about that, but

0:46:580:47:01

I think people disrespect the

quarterback more so than anything.

0:47:010:47:03

Everyone knows the type

of defense that they

0:47:030:47:05

have, everyone knows

the

0:47:050:47:06

personality they have,

and the coaching,

0:47:060:47:07

but the quarterback

is the

0:47:070:47:09

question mark.

0:47:090:47:10

Now, one of the highlights

of the season has been

0:47:100:47:12

the partnership of Jim

Nance and Tony Romo.

0:47:120:47:14

In the commentary booth.

0:47:140:47:15

And this actually turned out to be

the highlight of the whole game

0:47:150:47:18

between Buffalo and Jacksonville

as Blake Bortles went flying off the

0:47:180:47:21

field.

0:47:210:47:23

Now it is Blake Bortles,

he is after him.

0:47:230:47:27

Ouch!

0:47:270:47:29

Our guy is able to get back up

to his feet in a hurry.

0:47:290:47:32

That is impressive.

0:47:320:47:34

We have at least 100 guys

and you can call out their name

0:47:340:47:40

without barely seeing who they are!

0:47:400:47:41

This is our crew, we love them.

0:47:410:47:43

That is fantastic.

0:47:430:47:44

Look out!

0:47:440:47:45

I tell you what, that

was one of the harder

0:47:450:47:47

hits!

0:47:470:47:48

Oh, Blake!

0:47:480:47:50

There is the camera.

0:47:500:47:53

It is right in your

living room, pal!

0:47:530:48:01

Now they are a great duo.

0:48:030:48:04

What is also interesting, is that

Jim said, we love our crew and

0:48:040:48:07

Tony was really surprised that Jim

could name all of the camera crew.

0:48:070:48:10

But you love our crew,

don't you, Jason?

0:48:100:48:12

So, the camera over there,

that has been pointing on new...

0:48:120:48:15

Bell loves my guys!

0:48:150:48:16

Come on, I know everybody's name!

0:48:160:48:17

Man, I cannot put them

out there right now!

0:48:170:48:19

This is for security reasons!

0:48:190:48:21

I have to keep things confidential!

0:48:210:48:22

That is it.

0:48:220:48:24

You're not going to break that.

0:48:240:48:26

That is pretty good!

0:48:260:48:27

So, you don't want to reveal...

0:48:270:48:29

I have to get their consent first

and I'm not willing to

0:48:290:48:33

go there!

0:48:330:48:34

Osi, camera four?

0:48:340:48:35

Who is that?

0:48:350:48:36

That is my guy, Tim.

0:48:360:48:37

Tim, definitely?

0:48:370:48:39

Camera two?

0:48:390:48:40

We have got Tommy.

0:48:400:48:43

Camera one, over there?

0:48:430:48:44

That is Graham.

0:48:440:48:46

Yeah!

0:48:460:48:47

Those are my guys.

0:48:470:48:48

You're going to get them in trouble!

0:48:480:48:50

You are supposed to know

about that, J Bell!

0:48:500:48:53

Before we go a quick reminder

the NFL Show is back after Match

0:48:530:48:56

of the Day this Saturday with a look

ahead to the divisional

0:48:560:48:59

round of playoffs.

0:48:590:49:00

We'll also have further details

of the 2018 London Series games,

0:49:000:49:03

which are announced on Thursday.

0:49:030:49:05

You can also catch all our

shows on the iPlayer.

0:49:050:49:11

So that's all we have time

for tonight, next up the divisional

0:49:110:49:14

round as we move ever closer

to finding out who is going

0:49:140:49:16

to Minnesota on February 4th.

0:49:160:49:18

Good night.

0:49:180:49:19

Down to eight.

0:49:190:49:20

The divisional round.

0:49:200:49:21

We cannot wait.

0:49:210:49:29

For this to come to us.

0:49:300:49:31

And go, the young and the brave.

0:49:310:49:33

The path is intercepted.

0:49:330:49:34

We shall be back for more.

0:49:340:49:36

In come the Eagles.

0:49:360:49:42

On come the Minnesota Vikings.

0:49:420:49:44

Tighter defense, even tighter

in their determination to be

0:49:440:49:46

the first team to play

in the Super Bowl they will host.

0:49:460:49:54
