I take it you must
have won a competition to get on my
show. By the way, I do autographs
after and not during the show, taken
out of that. Only five weekends left
of this regular and competition is
getting fierce. We will be talking
about how no team and nobody can
afford to take a week off. We will
be bringing you highlights
Thursday's game between divisional
rivals the Washington Redskins and
the Dallas Cowboys, and we will be
taking a close look at Antonio Brown
to see if he can be stopped at all.
We are also looking ahead to a
crucial weekend fixtures, but first
we look back at what happened in

weekend he did exactly the same
thing, but it escalated.

heard a lot of people telling him
what kind of who was because he
didn't respond correctly, but this
is crazy. Going after each other

both of them in a lot of jeopardy

The first thing to say, if
you had your chain gang off last
season, maybe don't Wear it this
time! But that is a matter of pride
-- if you had your chain ripped off.

teams. The South is tight between
the Titans and the Jaguars and the
Kansas City Chiefs have basically

in the NFC South, the Panthers going

Rams last week.

year. They shouldn't have won the
