And it will be time for to decide between touchdown. A

:00:07.:00:35.

how did welcome to NFL this week. Last week, Denver's Super Bowl

:00:36.:00:44.

winner sent a festive bottle of wine to every single player in the AFC

:00:45.:00:54.

West, which is a a contract in his -- back pocket, you would've thought

:00:55.:00:57.

he would have bought something nice. The Broncos head into week 14

:00:58.:01:00.

needing more than a bottle of wine from their rivals are there to make

:01:01.:01:05.

the playoffs. Sadly there is no for this player, when they have it is

:01:06.:01:24.

our Super we will have one post-season is the Dallas Cowboys,

:01:25.:01:28.

who will be facing the Giants where a win will secure the title. The

:01:29.:01:32.

Giant is currently occupy one of the wild card spots, and for them a win

:01:33.:01:39.

is crucial in their quest the march of the season. The advance it began

:01:40.:01:52.

with a backward step but who did stop them way back in game one, 13

:01:53.:02:00.

weeks ago? The New York Giants. Giants by name, the big blue

:02:01.:02:03.

wrecking crew. A Terrence Williams, touchdown and

:02:04.:02:20.

that drive, 67 yards, As soon as that fake went, everyone

:02:21.:02:43.

took a step that way and Terrence Williams went across the field with

:02:44.:02:49.

no one around. A minute and a half left, 3rd 3. Cowboys in three,

:02:50.:02:57.

going for back and he drops it inside the 5-yard line. He could not

:02:58.:03:10.

hang on, 4th down. Empty backfield. Manning, with the ball going

:03:11.:03:15.

forward, Cedric Soares then got into his face. He has the turnover. He

:03:16.:03:21.

will be sick about that, Eli Manning, the ball falls out of his

:03:22.:03:26.

hands and even worse than that Robert Lewis was free. It will be a

:03:27.:03:34.

walk in touchdown. Eli Manning drops one and it kills the drive. Dunbar

:03:35.:03:43.

stays in to block and the path is picked off at the 39-yard line, it

:03:44.:03:50.

was intercepted by Jenkins, only the third interception in 13 games for

:03:51.:04:00.

Prescott. Look at Zac. The ball comes out as well, Manning went

:04:01.:04:06.

down, Zack lost it, another Dallas recovery. Great play by Benson. I

:04:07.:04:12.

want you to watch this, there he is, his shoulder pads will face that way

:04:13.:04:18.

by the time he makes first contact. Basically all he does is push into

:04:19.:04:22.

Eli Manning. You cannot play that way, you're not even supposed to

:04:23.:04:26.

turn sideways at all and he turned completely around by the time he

:04:27.:04:30.

makes first contact. The Cowboys could not capitalise on the

:04:31.:04:35.

turnover, Dan Bailey's effort ricocheted off back with the

:04:36.:04:37.

crossbar. In the third quarter, the Giants

:04:38.:04:46.

finally got on the board with a 30 yard kick from Robbie Gould. 3rd

:04:47.:04:52.

15. Prescott under pressure, going deep downfield. Picked off on the

:04:53.:04:59.

9-yard line. A good run. All kinds of action. He brings back to the

:05:00.:05:09.

yard line. I am not so sure that Dez Bryant was relieved by the free

:05:10.:05:12.

safety in the middle of the field. He never believed it was going to be

:05:13.:05:17.

thrown. He looked back but then it was Jenkins that basically undercut

:05:18.:05:21.

him and so it was a free play, basically, for Leon Hall to make

:05:22.:05:25.

that catch. A good run back, Prescott at two. And it is Beckham

:05:26.:05:31.

making the catch and off to the races he goes. Clark is chasing him

:05:32.:05:36.

down but he cannot get in. They take the lead. 61 yards after the

:05:37.:05:40.

interception. There is no one like him. With the ball in his hands, he

:05:41.:05:46.

has to be the most exciting player in the National Football League. He

:05:47.:05:53.

is going to attend the coronation. Second out of nine from the 22.

:05:54.:06:02.

Manning hangs in there. Picked up on the 16. Speaking of Anthony Browne,

:06:03.:06:07.

what a play. Victor Cruz was the intended receiver and Eli Manning

:06:08.:06:14.

throws the pack. It feels -- he feels where Victor Cruz is in the

:06:15.:06:17.

interception is beautifully done. What an amazing job he has done

:06:18.:06:21.

stepping in for Maurice Claiborne. Eli Manning cannot believe it. 3rd

:06:22.:06:28.

down and six. The Cowboys will have an interesting choice here. If it is

:06:29.:06:33.

four and six or even more. One time-out and a two minute warning.

:06:34.:06:39.

First thing's first, third and sixth. A Giant blitz. Prescott gets

:06:40.:06:45.

away and it is dropped. Swallowed by Brian and picked up by Collins. It

:06:46.:06:50.

lands on the 37-yard line. Brian makes a catch. Same deal, same exact

:06:51.:06:58.

thing. Played the hot to read, this time they hit it and he could not

:06:59.:07:04.

hang on. Brad Wing, his ninth pond. Easley is back at the 10-yard line.

:07:05.:07:15.

A spinner. And the Giants are going to the 2-yard line. Dwayne Harris is

:07:16.:07:20.

some special guy. The Cowboys now that's too well. He started his

:07:21.:07:24.

career there. The Cowboys, down to the last gasp. Fourth Baron. Whitton

:07:25.:07:30.

comes in for more protection at the backfield. -- 4th down. And that is

:07:31.:07:39.

at the 20-yard line. Bryant makes the catch, going to the ground. He

:07:40.:07:44.

holds onto it. Or did he? That is the question. And it has to be

:07:45.:07:48.

reviewed. Did they get the stoppage before the next snap? You will get a

:07:49.:07:57.

clearly incomplete pass. Guess who? To nor is Jenkins again. What a

:07:58.:08:02.

night he has had. And the crowd just saw the replay and they know it is

:08:03.:08:09.

game over. The Giants win on opening day and they win in week 14. For

:08:10.:08:20.

Prescott, 17-37. Under 57%. Two interceptions, equalling his season

:08:21.:08:27.

total coming into the game. I could have played better. Obviously the

:08:28.:08:29.

second half, we had a couple of good drives. We needed more to win. Our

:08:30.:08:40.

defense played outstanding. We got some pressure. I did not play my

:08:41.:08:44.

best game but they had a great defense and a great coordinator. I

:08:45.:08:49.

give them credit for all-round defense. Look at him, waiting

:08:50.:08:53.

patiently. I will have to keep on waiting longer. Sadly he is not

:08:54.:08:57.

praising Kansas City this week, instead he is looking at his beloved

:08:58.:09:02.

Giants. He did say from three weeks ago that they would beat Dallas, so

:09:03.:09:06.

he is going to look at the job they're defense did, and Pat himself

:09:07.:09:12.

on the back. Look how happy he is! The Giants pulled off another upset

:09:13.:09:16.

which quite frankly in New York, we are accustomed to. And they did this

:09:17.:09:20.

with an outstanding, overwhelming defensive presence, and I want you

:09:21.:09:23.

to look at some of the plays they were able to make. Right here, you

:09:24.:09:30.

are going to see divine canard. The interesting thing about this guy, he

:09:31.:09:34.

is on line back, not a defensive tackle. We have a saying, the more

:09:35.:09:38.

you can do, the longer you will stay. You will see him lined up

:09:39.:09:43.

against one of the best offensive lineman in football. Watch this man

:09:44.:09:48.

push his man all the way into the quarterback. That is what forces

:09:49.:09:52.

Prescott into an interception he could not see. And this is how the

:09:53.:09:55.

defense is tied together. This is how you know it, when the pressure

:09:56.:09:59.

comes against the interception. I want you to look at something here.

:10:00.:10:06.

If you had Janoris Jenkins, the jack rabbit, lined up in a 1-1 situation

:10:07.:10:11.

against Dez Bryant, Jenkins is right now the best quarterback in

:10:12.:10:14.

football. Why would you feel to him? Throwing to him makes no sense.

:10:15.:10:20.

Throwing to that side is like when you are hungry and you were walking

:10:21.:10:23.

to the refrigerator over and over again, hoping food miraculously

:10:24.:10:27.

appears but it never does. That is what is going on right here. They

:10:28.:10:30.

are going to throw to him and what happens when you open that up?

:10:31.:10:35.

Interception. Jenkins making plays for the New York Giants. And right

:10:36.:10:39.

here, I want you to look right here. This direct to your is Romeo

:10:40.:10:47.

acquirer. The Dallas Cowboys are going to line up with six offensive

:10:48.:10:52.

lineman. Why are they going to do this? Because they want to fool the

:10:53.:10:58.

Giants. Most of the time, when there are six offensive lineman on the

:10:59.:11:02.

field, it is usually a run. Are the Giants fooled? Absolutely not. And

:11:03.:11:08.

Romeo Okwara is going to say, no, they will not fool me today. Why

:11:09.:11:13.

would I say it in that accent? Because it is an African name. And

:11:14.:11:16.

he would say that in an African accent. Check him out right here, as

:11:17.:11:20.

he goes out around the corner, playing the run amok coming round

:11:21.:11:29.

the edge. Sack Oyonnax sacking Dak, he is sacking Dak. With all the talk

:11:30.:11:38.

about Eli Manning, it is the Giants defense getting the job done for New

:11:39.:11:40.

York. And they were very impressive. When

:11:41.:11:46.

you highlight the offensive line, they have been such a strength this

:11:47.:11:50.

season but the Giants outsmarted them. And that is a wrong look. You

:11:51.:11:56.

are trying to fool them but it does not work. Go Giants. And yet for all

:11:57.:12:02.

the great defensive work, there have to questions about the Giants

:12:03.:12:06.

offense. We had a discussion last week but Eli Manning is most

:12:07.:12:11.

definitely not firing at the moment. Statistically he always has a rough

:12:12.:12:15.

decision. It is just what happens to him. It is kind of how his make-up

:12:16.:12:19.

is. It seems not to flow for him. But that is why they spent this

:12:20.:12:23.

money on this defense. They need to get through points like that because

:12:24.:12:28.

visually, it just clicking. Can the Giants defense make up for the

:12:29.:12:32.

stuttering fence? Offends wins games but defense wins championship. They

:12:33.:12:39.

spent $200 million bringing in new players and frankly, I have never

:12:40.:12:42.

seen this before. They hit on every single one of the players they

:12:43.:12:46.

brought in. A tremendous job by the general manager, fixing the defense.

:12:47.:12:51.

They never anticipated the offense would be so bad but defensively,

:12:52.:12:55.

they are playing well. But things change from week to week. As we

:12:56.:13:02.

learn as the season progresses. But can this defense to take the Giants

:13:03.:13:06.

a long way? The defense will definitely carry. You have to have

:13:07.:13:10.

good defense and you have to have good defense in the postseason. What

:13:11.:13:14.

do you think this will do to Dallas, this defeat? And also the fact that

:13:15.:13:20.

they were not particularly fluid against the Vikings but they still

:13:21.:13:26.

managed to get out there with a win. The last two weeks, they have not

:13:27.:13:29.

replicated what they did against Washington. They have not played

:13:30.:13:31.

well and it will be interesting to see what happens with the

:13:32.:13:34.

quarterback situation. Everybody is in love with Dak Prescott and they

:13:35.:13:37.

think he the guy but he has not played well the last of weeks and

:13:38.:13:44.

you have an outstanding player in Tony Romo, sitting behind this young

:13:45.:13:48.

kid, that might be what is affecting right now. I don't know why you like

:13:49.:13:55.

Tony Romo, but Dak Prescott is fine. He has had one and a half back games

:13:56.:14:00.

-- bad games. But at the wrong time. You cannot be plain bad at this

:14:01.:14:03.

time. You have to but playing winning football. This is the thing,

:14:04.:14:06.

they have not had the chance to check their mistakes. Coaches do not

:14:07.:14:11.

want to go in and rock the boat. Now they have a game to correct

:14:12.:14:14.

everything they did bad in the previous games. I think they will

:14:15.:14:17.

bounce back. So what happens if they lose the next to my games? Will they

:14:18.:14:21.

stick with Dak Prescott? We will talk about that next week. Let's

:14:22.:14:26.

take a look at our first round-up of week 14.

:14:27.:14:32.

Kirk Cousins from 204 yards and two touchdowns including that 80 yard to

:14:33.:14:44.

Jackson. It keeps their wild card hopes alive at all but eliminates

:14:45.:14:50.

the Eagles. 25 yard touchdown inside the final two minutes. Seattle had

:14:51.:14:55.

the opportunity to clinch the NFC West but there were five

:14:56.:14:59.

interceptions thrown by Russell Wilson and that put paid to that in

:15:00.:15:06.

a snow swept Lambeau Field. Aaron Rodgers was limping a little bit but

:15:07.:15:12.

he was good enough to secure this 38-10 win, throwing 4246 yards and

:15:13.:15:19.

three touchdowns, two of them to Nelson. We will look at the Packers

:15:20.:15:24.

in a moment. Minnesota managed to keep pace with the Green Bay, it was

:15:25.:15:29.

9-9 at half-time, two second-half touchdown saw the Vikings pull away,

:15:30.:15:35.

Rudolph with the decisive score and the final score was 25-16. The

:15:36.:15:42.

defending Super Bowl champions are in danger of missing out of the

:15:43.:15:48.

playoffs and that would match their Super Bowl XXXIII exploits.

:15:49.:15:51.

Tennessee were fresh from nearby weak and they went 13-0 up at

:15:52.:15:56.

half-time and despite Denver mounting a second-half fightback,

:15:57.:16:01.

the Titans now have a share of the lead in the AFC South. They share

:16:02.:16:10.

that with Houston who won 22-17 at the Indianapolis Colts. What is

:16:11.:16:19.

that? That was a two yard touchdown. Novak scored five field goals. And

:16:20.:16:28.

none of us want to see that ever ever again. Let's swiftly move on.

:16:29.:16:34.

Let's talk about Green Bay. It was a matter of one month ago where we

:16:35.:16:38.

were criticising them a lot and now they are on a little bit of a roll,

:16:39.:16:44.

three wins on the trot, what is different? The magic of Aaron

:16:45.:16:47.

Rodgers bouncing back from playing badly at the beginning and defense

:16:48.:16:51.

is getting healthy. They had significant injuries early in the

:16:52.:16:59.

season. At home, in December, are strong. Lambeau Field, the crowd

:17:00.:17:03.

noise, people going crazy, everyone excited, Green Bay is like a small

:17:04.:17:06.

college town. They have nothing else to do there, the whole town is now

:17:07.:17:11.

watching the football game and the Green Bay Packers feed off it. If

:17:12.:17:15.

you are from Green Bay, nice to have your long. They know it is true!

:17:16.:17:22.

Does Aaron Rodgers look happier, because we have seen times where he

:17:23.:17:26.

looked furious with what his team-mates are doing? He definitely

:17:27.:17:30.

looks happier because he is completing passes. It is the way he

:17:31.:17:34.

is able to set his feet up quickly to deliver that ball and he seems to

:17:35.:17:38.

have that back and he is able to use his mobility to set his feet up

:17:39.:17:42.

quickly and get that ball out like a web, it is amazing. He needs about

:17:43.:17:47.

mobility as the season reaches its climax and towards the end, when we

:17:48.:17:51.

see him limping, he looks like he might not have full mobility. I

:17:52.:17:55.

don't buy that for one second, come on, do you watch this game? He was

:17:56.:18:01.

out there, I don't know how many touchdown passes, was moving around

:18:02.:18:04.

fluently and he gets on the sideline, all my leg, all my head!

:18:05.:18:09.

Nobody is buying that, no one feel sorry for you, Aaron Rodgers! Do you

:18:10.:18:15.

feel sorry for Russell Wilson? I do. Hit man Jimmy Graham need to get

:18:16.:18:22.

back on the same page. He needs a target he can depend on. He's not

:18:23.:18:29.

been very well protected? He has not been protected at all. That

:18:30.:18:33.

offensive line have been influx that entire season. Look at this.

:18:34.:18:39.

Turnovers... This very last play, the guy is going to run right around

:18:40.:18:45.

him. He needs to give him the lookout block. They are getting

:18:46.:18:53.

demolished, they need to do something about that. I want to get

:18:54.:19:01.

your thoughts on a couple of rather nasty hits that took place in the

:19:02.:19:06.

NFL this week. This was Douglas on Harris for Denver. This is what

:19:07.:19:14.

happened to Sproles. You could hear their helmets crash into each other.

:19:15.:19:21.

Which was the worst one for you? The one on Chris Harris, that could have

:19:22.:19:25.

ended your career. That was playing dirty. If that happened to us, we

:19:26.:19:31.

will go after him. A lot of people in the studio, we all wince when we

:19:32.:19:35.

see the Sproles won but that is a matter of timing, whereas Douglas on

:19:36.:19:40.

Harris, if we see that again, that is malicious. Honestly, this is

:19:41.:19:45.

uncalled for. I'm not a violent person by any stretch of the

:19:46.:19:49.

imagination but if I saw this, I am coming off the sidelined ride away.

:19:50.:19:53.

You're trying to end this man's career. He's not looking at you,

:19:54.:20:00.

you're taking his knees out! You will have to fight every footballer

:20:01.:20:04.

on the field if you do that. The Sproles one was violent, but you can

:20:05.:20:12.

excuse it a little bit. The guy might have been trying to aim for

:20:13.:20:21.

the midsection... Denver were Ryles. They went after him. You have to do

:20:22.:20:30.

that. It has not quite been a Cleveland season over in Chicago but

:20:31.:20:35.

with three wins, 2016 is hardly a year to write home about. Making the

:20:36.:20:40.

short trip to the motor city were rampant Matthew Stafford and the

:20:41.:20:45.

Detroit Lions awaited, Chicago are without Cutler and without much

:20:46.:20:49.

help. They actually won the reverse fixture in week four and looking to

:20:50.:20:53.

drill the playoff hopes, they will be hoping to draw inspiration from

:20:54.:21:02.

those 85 Chicago Bears. Nobody sold the NFL to an international audience

:21:03.:21:08.

quite like William Perry. The cat-macro fridge. Super Bowl XX, the

:21:09.:21:13.

Chicago Bears, bottom of the NFC North, they will not be making the

:21:14.:21:19.

playoffs this season. The battling spirit, the Detroit Lions are much

:21:20.:21:23.

more like it, top of the division, fourth-quarter comebacks their

:21:24.:21:37.

speciality. 13 drops by Bears receivers since Berkeley has taken

:21:38.:21:44.

over. Howard is wide open. Taking on the Lions tackle is inside the

:21:45.:21:49.

Detroit 30. A burst of 28 by the rookie running back. Finally brought

:21:50.:21:54.

down by Walker and Lawson. Seven plays later, the Bears were ahead.

:21:55.:22:06.

Confusion. Boxed play. Stafford nowhere to go but throw it out of

:22:07.:22:11.

bounds. He took a hit, trying to get rid of the ball. Watch that right

:22:12.:22:17.

hand. I don't know if he jammed a thumb. Stafford had dislocated the

:22:18.:22:21.

middle finger on his throwing hand but he stayed in the game. It was

:22:22.:22:27.

then tied at three all before the Lions got the ball back late in the

:22:28.:22:30.

second quarter. They were able to get the 1st down. After the penalty,

:22:31.:22:37.

behind the 15, going towards the end zone, it is touchdown! You angle

:22:38.:22:46.

towards the pylon here and then this ball is going to come right over the

:22:47.:22:51.

top. Good separation by the 14 year veteran. He is bolstering his Hall

:22:52.:22:59.

of Fame resume. Some pretty good names, list. They struck again on

:23:00.:23:09.

the first try for Detroit. This 54 yard field goal gave the Lions

:23:10.:23:13.

Boldin lead. Setting catch today for just under 40. He has his man. It is

:23:14.:23:25.

Meredith for the Chicago touchdown and the Bears are right back in it,

:23:26.:23:30.

31 yards on the touchdown catch by Meredith. We see the timed

:23:31.:23:40.

possession. Stafford going to be end zone, deflected, is it picked? Yes

:23:41.:23:48.

it is. Intercepted by Hirst, what a break for Detroit. Golden Tate was

:23:49.:23:55.

the intended receiver. Mike Callahan, he'd tapped that ball

:23:56.:23:59.

distracting golden Tate and ricochets off his face masked.

:24:00.:24:05.

Gratuitous bounce for the Chicago Bears and unfortunate for the

:24:06.:24:13.

Detroit Lions. Berkeley escapes initially. First sack of Berkeley

:24:14.:24:26.

this afternoon. Stafford incomplete. Five straight attempts, should be

:24:27.:24:34.

3rd 5 from their own 14. The pass was intercepted. It is LeBlanc and

:24:35.:24:43.

he is in for the Bears. You have to wonder if the glove on that throwing

:24:44.:24:48.

hand, Matthew Stafford, causes him to throw the ball behind. The block

:24:49.:24:54.

made a really nice block. Here he is. Watch him jump in the hip pocket

:24:55.:24:58.

of the intended receiver. Great play. He was covering against

:24:59.:25:04.

Boldin. The ball was thrown behind Boldin and it should not have been

:25:05.:25:08.

thrown by Matthew Stafford. Great coverage by LeBlanc. Game on the

:25:09.:25:12.

line, the Lions have the Bears right where they want them. Pass Boldin.

:25:13.:25:26.

Breaking inside the 25. Just shy of the 20. They are trying to maintain

:25:27.:25:36.

this two-game lead. Second angle, Staffords, under pressure. He is

:25:37.:25:46.

then for the Lions touchdown. Detroit are back in front. It is not

:25:47.:25:52.

as pretty as some of the other running quarterbacks, but you have

:25:53.:25:57.

got to love the poise of Matthew Stafford. They are trying to close

:25:58.:26:03.

in Alma would be their First Division title. In 22 years.

:26:04.:26:11.

Berkeley's pass, Meredith, still on his feet, Meredith inside the 20, to

:26:12.:26:18.

the 15-yard line. Slade forced him out of bounds. 27 yards. Big-time

:26:19.:26:27.

play, but we are going to get a holding on Charles Leno. They're are

:26:28.:26:38.

shareholder right there. Take down. That is a killer 27 yard pass. 129

:26:39.:26:41.

penalty yards, 48 seconds left. 1st penalty yards, 48 seconds left. 1st

:26:42.:26:50.

20, Berkeley throws and it is caught. What a play. Another flag is

:26:51.:27:06.

thrown. Unbelievable. Every way possible. Whether it is receivers

:27:07.:27:11.

dropping passes or the like of Larsen getting a holding call. Here

:27:12.:27:18.

he is at the right guard position. That is every time. Bigas play call

:27:19.:27:28.

of the day coming up for the Bears. They are getting receivers open in

:27:29.:27:31.

the middle of the field and if they do so, they have a time-out left to

:27:32.:27:41.

stop the play. Berkeley's pass up the middle is deflected, what is the

:27:42.:27:46.

call here? They say incomplete and it will be a turnover on the downs.

:27:47.:27:55.

It was a hard-fought game, the Bears are a strong team and they play well

:27:56.:28:02.

and we had a battle on our hands. Disappointment, we were trying to go

:28:03.:28:07.

and win the game, but there were parts of the game, things we have to

:28:08.:28:11.

clean up and get better and learn from. Hopefully we will see those

:28:12.:28:17.

things. We will correct it and move forward.

:28:18.:28:25.

Focusing on Detroit, Matthew Stafford dislocating his finger but

:28:26.:28:31.

leading them to another comeback. This is what he has been doing all

:28:32.:28:35.

year. He has the hot hand, and especially coming back from an

:28:36.:28:38.

injury like that, you are worried if he is going to be able to do it but

:28:39.:28:41.

he did it with his feet. He is the champion. But the glove on and that

:28:42.:28:45.

obviously helped him. You wonder whether it would affect how he

:28:46.:28:47.

throws but then you see something like this. A bit of the feet, and

:28:48.:28:55.

then it does not affect the throw. The thing about Matthew Stafford, he

:28:56.:28:58.

has always had that kind of raw talent. This is an outstanding

:28:59.:29:02.

quarterback but he did not have the maturity. Now he is playing at an

:29:03.:29:07.

MVP level. When you look at it right, and I mentioned how many

:29:08.:29:11.

times they have come back, Chicago had their chances in this game,

:29:12.:29:14.

numerous penalties. Bellamy, right at the end, dropping the ball. It

:29:15.:29:21.

would have got them a field goal. Our do getting away with it or are

:29:22.:29:25.

they making their own luck? They are just a better team. -- our Detroit

:29:26.:29:32.

getting away with it. They have playmakers who make plays when the

:29:33.:29:35.

game is on the line. That is the difference between them and Chicago.

:29:36.:29:39.

But are they lucky? They were lucky in that game. In certain situations

:29:40.:29:45.

when you are a bad team, bad things happen to you and when you are a

:29:46.:29:48.

good team, good things happen. I know that sounds a little redundant

:29:49.:29:52.

but that is the way it is in the NFL. Two touchdowns in a row against

:29:53.:29:59.

Chicago, that never happens. The defensive line would hold on almost

:30:00.:30:02.

every single play. If you look at the fixtures, Green Bay might catch

:30:03.:30:06.

Detroit in this division. They have the other three division sides to

:30:07.:30:10.

play. But if to are setting their sights at number two in the NSC, may

:30:11.:30:16.

be going head to head with Seattle, when you look at the remaining

:30:17.:30:21.

fixtures, Detroit have a lot harder games, with the Giants and Dallas

:30:22.:30:27.

and Green Bay, but Seattle have their divisional rivals. Seattle has

:30:28.:30:30.

got the cakewalk of a schedule right now. That is the thing about

:30:31.:30:36.

Detroit. Compared to Detroit? Divisional rivals, those are not

:30:37.:30:40.

cakewalk. Every one of those teams are going to be trying to punch them

:30:41.:30:46.

in the mouth. They could lose both of their games. The Rams are known

:30:47.:30:50.

for beating the Seattle Seahawks. Those will not be easy games. You

:30:51.:30:56.

are just accepting that? He is just talking crazy. A quick reminder that

:30:57.:31:02.

you can get another dose of the NFL show after Match of the Day on

:31:03.:31:07.

Saturday night. We will have highlights of the Rams as they visit

:31:08.:31:12.

the Seahawks and we will preview week 15. Four straight wins for

:31:13.:31:16.

Tampa Bay and all of a sudden they are finding themselves tied to the

:31:17.:31:21.

top of the NFC south. The Buccaneers sit a far cry from their two and 14

:31:22.:31:28.

season of 2014. Another examination of their credentials came in their

:31:29.:31:35.

game against the New Orleans. The Saints boast the best defensive

:31:36.:31:41.

record in the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a swashbuckling

:31:42.:31:45.

surge, second in the NFC south with an eye on top spot. They sense gold.

:31:46.:31:53.

The playoffs, the prize. But others attack with a swagger. The New

:31:54.:31:59.

Orleans Saints, with the wind in their sales.

:32:00.:32:07.

Tampa Bay opened the scoring when Roberto Aguero converted a field

:32:08.:32:14.

goal midway through the first quarter. Given to Martin. And he

:32:15.:32:27.

gets into the end zone. He runs through with that attempted tackle.

:32:28.:32:32.

Darryl Tapp had a second opportunity. Small, contact, getting

:32:33.:32:47.

under. Dale Breeze did not throw a tough touchdown since 2009. --

:32:48.:32:57.

Brees. It goes into the arms... It looks like the Saints have something

:32:58.:33:02.

more. Tampa Bay converted that into a point for the team to take a 13

:33:03.:33:11.

point lead. New Orleans got on the scoreboard with this. They did it.

:33:12.:33:22.

They did it. They get the set piece. And they go to safety. That is

:33:23.:33:28.

clean. Kruger was in there, number 99, from a stand-up position. Look

:33:29.:33:31.

at all the guys on the line of scrimmage. There are ten guys.

:33:32.:33:35.

Kruger gets in there at number 99, and he gets the penetration. That is

:33:36.:33:40.

not safer. That is full close. Remember they called its safety on

:33:41.:33:43.

the field so it will be hard to return. UMPIRE: The point stands. 11

:33:44.:33:57.

minutes later, this field goal made it a 5-point game at half-time. 3rd

:33:58.:34:18.

down and two. And it is a touchdown. Look at Brandon cooks. Watching

:34:19.:34:26.

going. He finds a spot, he sits down and establishes himself. Just look

:34:27.:34:32.

at it. Here we go. I not sure. This is what they were looking at. And

:34:33.:34:36.

look at that, the ball was down and on the ground. UMPIRE: Incomplete

:34:37.:34:46.

pass. After failing to get a touchdown, the Saints settled for a

:34:47.:34:52.

22 yard touchdown to cut the lead to two. In the fourth quarter, the

:34:53.:34:59.

Buccaneers responded. This from 26 yards, restoring Tampa's 5-point

:35:00.:35:06.

lead. True Breeze secured his second interception of the day. -- Brees.

:35:07.:35:13.

The Saints would have a final chance to win the game, starting their own

:35:14.:35:16.

3-yard line with two minutes to play. Drew Brees is the greatest

:35:17.:35:32.

single free agent Saini of all time. He leads all quarterbacks in

:35:33.:35:40.

touchdowns, yards. Can he bring his team back? The Saints have one

:35:41.:35:47.

time-out left. If you are Tampa Bay, you have a 5-point lead, and you

:35:48.:35:56.

need to keep everything in front. Drew Brees looking down the field,

:35:57.:36:00.

and that is a nice catch right there. Great protection. Down the

:36:01.:36:10.

field. And right into trouble cover. For the Saints, this is it. It is

:36:11.:36:19.

intercepted. Buy candy. A huge interception against San Diego a

:36:20.:36:22.

week ago, and he delivers again tonight. Earlier in this game we saw

:36:23.:36:30.

him make two excellent collections of the football, one resulting in an

:36:31.:36:33.

interception. He wants to be a coach and he has his eyes on the gameplay.

:36:34.:36:39.

Remember, he is not the starter, he is filling in. I tell you what he

:36:40.:36:45.

has, he has the feet of Drew Brees. He is breaking on his eyes, not the

:36:46.:36:49.

ball. He is looking and anticipating what Brees is going to do. He makes

:36:50.:36:54.

a great interception for the Buccaneers. Nobody could have seen

:36:55.:37:00.

that coming. Two weeks now, we have not scored a touchdown, and I think

:37:01.:37:07.

you've to start there. That keeps you from having a chance. We have to

:37:08.:37:13.

be better. I am very proud of our guys for finding a way. It starts

:37:14.:37:20.

with our defense. Who says that they do not play defense in Tampa Bay?

:37:21.:37:25.

They do. That was the ultimate team win. Our winning has been ultimate

:37:26.:37:29.

team wins. That is how you win football games. It felt great. For

:37:30.:37:34.

the fifth week in a row, the good guys win. Yeah. You don't often get

:37:35.:37:40.

applause in post match press conferences. They must really like

:37:41.:37:45.

him. Must be a lot of Tampa Bay journalists in that one. We praised

:37:46.:37:48.

the Buccaneers a lot last week and defensively they were great again in

:37:49.:37:52.

this game, but how much did Drew Brees help them? Well, obviously you

:37:53.:37:56.

cannot throw three interceptions like that. He has played poorly over

:37:57.:38:01.

the last two games. But you have got to give the Buccaneers' defense

:38:02.:38:06.

credit. Mike Snow is now their defensive coordinator and he was

:38:07.:38:13.

known for being a defensive player until he switched to Tampa. But he

:38:14.:38:18.

has that defense humming now. It is like the old Tampa Bay, they were a

:38:19.:38:23.

defensive game and that is how they won games. -- a defensive team Brees

:38:24.:38:30.

is it a bad run at the wrong time. No touchdowns in two games, not

:38:31.:38:34.

helped by certain players dropping the ball when they could have had a

:38:35.:38:39.

touchdown. And I think he feels the pressure that he has two the games.

:38:40.:38:44.

He has to score a lot points so he can make big plays. Honestly, that

:38:45.:38:48.

is mind-boggling for Drew Brees to have no touchdowns and six

:38:49.:38:53.

interceptions. We are talking about one of the greatest quarterbacks in

:38:54.:38:56.

the history of football. Tampa Bay, similar to Detroit. They are running

:38:57.:39:02.

is not particularly kind. And in fact, we 15, next week at Dallas,

:39:03.:39:07.

then they have New Orleans and Carolina. It is going to be a tough

:39:08.:39:11.

run for them but what I like about them is that they are treating these

:39:12.:39:14.

turnovers. They are giving themselves a chance to score points

:39:15.:39:18.

and preventing the other team. If you play well on defense, as long as

:39:19.:39:21.

you have a good defense you will be able to stay in every game. That is

:39:22.:39:27.

a tough three games that they have but they should be able to win a

:39:28.:39:30.

couple. Will doubtless be looking at Tampa Bay, given what happened to

:39:31.:39:33.

them against New York? And all of a sudden doubts might be coming into

:39:34.:39:36.

the Cowboys because of how they struggled against New York. Yes,

:39:37.:39:38.

because Tampa Bay can't stop the run. If they forced Dak to throw

:39:39.:39:45.

like they did against the Giants, that game can go quickly. If it is

:39:46.:39:52.

Dak. Let's now look... Let's look at our final round-up from week 14. We

:39:53.:40:00.

will start with Pittsburgh, and Bell having a record day. 236 yards and

:40:01.:40:07.

three touchdowns. The Steelers, running out to 27-20 winners in the

:40:08.:40:13.

snow. He was jogging to the end zone. It moved the Steelers to eight

:40:14.:40:20.

and five ahead of the Ravens. Their divisional rivals sitting on the

:40:21.:40:23.

Patriots on Monday night but the Ravens lost that 30-23. Tom Brady am

:40:24.:40:33.

a passing for six and 19 yards. And just as the Ravens mounted a

:40:34.:40:36.

comeback in the second half, watch this. 79 yard touchdown. Somebody is

:40:37.:40:48.

going to get fired. That is to open. Don't give Brady any credit for that

:40:49.:40:53.

whatsoever. Arizona and Miami in the next round, threw for 100 and nine

:40:54.:41:01.

yards. Three touchdowns in this. But he sprained an ACL against the

:41:02.:41:05.

Cardinals and that could well be his season over. And they still have

:41:06.:41:12.

playoff ambitions, the Dolphins. They ran out 26-23. They need a

:41:13.:41:20.

quarterback. They do. Will go to San Diego next. Not a great deal on this

:41:21.:41:25.

game but Carolina were 23 points up in the second quarter. Jonathan

:41:26.:41:32.

Stewart, helping them do that. Eventually it finished 28-16 to Cam

:41:33.:41:36.

Newton's man. And it was very easy for the Atlanta Falcons, opening up

:41:37.:41:44.

a 42-0 lead over the hapless LA Rams. They finally ran out 42-14

:41:45.:41:50.

winners to go to eight and five atop the AFC south. Taylor Gabriel had

:41:51.:41:53.

the pick of the scoring. This 64 yard catch from Matt Ryan. Talking

:41:54.:42:02.

of people getting fired, 48 hours after the game, the Rams fired their

:42:03.:42:06.

head coach, Jeff Fisher, and he becomes the first coaching

:42:07.:42:10.

casualties of the season. And we will talk about that in just a

:42:11.:42:14.

moment. As far as the standings are concerned, New England have not yet

:42:15.:42:19.

won the AFC East because of Miami's late win. In the North, Baltimore's

:42:20.:42:22.

loss handed Pittsburgh the initiative. In the south,

:42:23.:42:27.

Indianapolis lost to Houston, setting them back. Houston go to

:42:28.:42:31.

Tennessee in week 17 and Denver are now in danger of missing out on the

:42:32.:42:35.

playoffs in the West. As far as the NFC is concerned, Dallas lost to the

:42:36.:42:40.

Giants, stopping and winning the division. The Giants in a strong

:42:41.:42:44.

position. Destroyed have control of the North and eight that running

:42:45.:42:50.

Minnesota or Bay Slytherin. -- to try to control. The Buccaneers have

:42:51.:42:54.

the harder run in the south. In the West, Seattle's Road record has seen

:42:55.:43:01.

them slip to 841. If this season ended after this week, New England

:43:02.:43:05.

and Kansas City would be the top two sides with Denver and Oakland are

:43:06.:43:09.

wild Cards, with the best record of everybody else. They go to the other

:43:10.:43:12.

divisional winners in Houston and Pittsburgh.

:43:13.:43:21.

Detroit now up to the number two seed and the other divisional

:43:22.:43:26.

winners would be Seattle and Atlanta and dock let's start with the firing

:43:27.:43:38.

of Jeff Fisher by the rounds. It is kind of no supplies, except last

:43:39.:43:41.

week they announced that at the start of the season, he had signed a

:43:42.:43:48.

contract extension. Mind-boggling. In the NFL, those contracts are

:43:49.:43:53.

guaranteed for the coaches. You give him a contract extension and fire

:43:54.:44:01.

him, you are guaranteeing him money for nothing! Now what will they

:44:02.:44:03.

want, the equivalent of a quarterback whisperer to help? That

:44:04.:44:12.

is absolutely what they will do. You will have to get a quarterback

:44:13.:44:17.

expert, someone who has worked well with young quarterbacks and then a

:44:18.:44:21.

defensive coordinator on top of that. They will look for a youngish

:44:22.:44:27.

person? I would think so. Someone who can relate. Josh Bowden Daniel

:44:28.:44:32.

is from the New England Patriots. That is my tip. Let us move to Miami

:44:33.:44:37.

and look at Ryan Tannehill, this will be a big blow for their playoff

:44:38.:44:44.

hopes. He was doing well. This was before any injury. It has been

:44:45.:44:50.

called the worst throw ever seen in the NFL. You don't want your parents

:44:51.:45:00.

to see that. The injury, that could be it for the season. This is how

:45:01.:45:05.

they were going, he was starting to slip the ball down the field. That

:45:06.:45:12.

is the second time he has done that, you cannot keep doing that. There

:45:13.:45:18.

has been a rule since 2008, ever since Tom Brady got injured like

:45:19.:45:23.

that, you cannot go low on a quarterback and this is the second

:45:24.:45:26.

time we have seen him do that. He knows better. He has been a much

:45:27.:45:31.

maligned quarterback in the past and things have started to develop for

:45:32.:45:36.

him this season and you fear, you must have some empathy. Things are

:45:37.:45:41.

starting to click. And the injury like that can damage it. Let's look

:45:42.:45:46.

at the division involving Pittsburgh and Baltimore and the Steelers now

:45:47.:45:51.

have the advantage in this division. The remaining games for the

:45:52.:45:57.

Steelers, all divisional, Cincinnati, Baltimore, then

:45:58.:46:01.

Cleveland. Pittsburgh and Cincinnati and they also have Philadelphia. I

:46:02.:46:07.

like Pittsburgh in that division. Towards the end of the season, these

:46:08.:46:11.

are teams that truly hate each other. Outside of the NFC East, this

:46:12.:46:17.

is another division that is trying to play, it will be interesting to

:46:18.:46:21.

see how things shape up. That game will decide it. Definitely. I also

:46:22.:46:25.

like Pittsburgh, I feel like offensively they have their three

:46:26.:46:29.

weapons back all played together and they are the start of take that big

:46:30.:46:34.

of a type of teeth that Ukuma Ta'ai boasting that -- team of stars to

:46:35.:46:38.

play well. Baltimore will be coming to the UK for the games next season.

:46:39.:46:44.

For London fixtures, Ravens and Jaguars, the saints and the Dolphins

:46:45.:46:51.

will be at Wembley. The Vikings and the Browns at Twickenham and the

:46:52.:46:55.

Cardinals and the Rams. All those fans from Cleveland will come over

:46:56.:46:59.

and make their thoughts known to you. I hope we stay safe. It is all

:47:00.:47:05.

about you, Mark. How dare you drive me into it. Let's look at your

:47:06.:47:13.

index. These are the top five teams in the NFL. We'll start with you,

:47:14.:47:19.

you keep changing your mind. He put Denver in and took out Atlanta and

:47:20.:47:26.

week... You've taken Denver out and put ad land in. I like Atlanta. They

:47:27.:47:32.

lost a game that you were not supposed to lose. You cannot credit

:47:33.:47:36.

mediocrity. We have to let them know that they played badly. The message

:47:37.:47:43.

obviously got through. Exactly, they came right back. Jason, your index

:47:44.:47:49.

is as follows,... That was last week this week... Instead exactly the

:47:50.:48:00.

same. You don't punish mediocrity. I figure the Seahawks can pull it out.

:48:01.:48:05.

He has the Raiders ahead of the Chiefs! He hasn't got time to answer

:48:06.:48:10.

that. We have to end the show. The NFL show this Saturday is after much

:48:11.:48:17.

of the day and week 14 of 17 wrapped up and the pretenders are now being

:48:18.:48:22.

exposed on a weekly basis. That is the teams in the playoff, not their

:48:23.:48:31.

spare! Don't it impersonate the Indianapolis Colts mascot! What will

:48:32.:48:38.

carry teams to the line and beyond into post-season? Momentum, that

:48:39.:48:43.

precious impetus, so hard to build, so easy to lose. It is never too

:48:44.:48:48.

late for a role to unravel, never too late to be brought down to

:48:49.:48:54.

earth, to be stopped in your tracks, opposing forces still at work, only

:48:55.:48:57.

in the NFL.

:48:58.:48:59.
