And it will be time for these

two teams to settle it.

0:00:100:00:13

He's going to fire

towards the end zone.

0:00:130:00:15

Launched the ball the near side.

0:00:150:00:16

A throw.

0:00:160:00:17

Touchdown.

0:00:170:00:18

He's looking downfield, going deep.

0:00:180:00:19

The one-man wrecking crew.

0:00:190:00:20

Unbelievable.

0:00:200:00:23

Let's go.

0:00:230:00:24

How did he do that?

0:00:240:00:26

Caught.

0:00:260:00:27

Unstoppable.

0:00:270:00:31

Hello and welcome to the NFL Show.

0:00:330:00:38

We're back from our trip

to Atlanta, but we're

0:00:380:00:40

still admiring the style

of our American counterpart.

0:00:400:00:43

I look at, NBA, NFL

and baseball, ain't

0:00:430:00:45

nobody seen a brimless hat,

so I wanted to be the first

0:00:450:00:48

one behind the scenes

with the brimless hat.

0:00:480:00:50

So, you've seen it here first,

Cam Newton, brimless hat.

0:00:500:00:55

Well, not seen it there

first, to be honest

0:00:550:00:58

with you, Cam.

0:00:580:00:59

But yes, no?

0:00:590:01:00

No.

0:01:000:01:01

No.

0:01:010:01:02

There are even some things that

we'll draw the line at.

0:01:020:01:04

Oh, you're going

to do a magic trick?

0:01:040:01:06

Yes, you know, all of

that, one, two, three.

0:01:060:01:09

Your three card...

0:01:090:01:09

Yeah.

0:01:090:01:11

Just like that.

0:01:110:01:13

Yeah, there's no water

under there any more.

0:01:130:01:15

Do you get that, do

you get "Just like that?"

0:01:150:01:17

No.

0:01:170:01:18

No.

0:01:180:01:20

LAUGHTER

0:01:200:01:21

Not a clue

what you're talking about.

0:01:210:01:22

That's one for the older members

of the audience and the

0:01:220:01:25

non-Americans.

0:01:250:01:27

I'm once again joined by Jason Bell

and Osi Umenyiora, I'm Tommy Cooper,

0:01:270:01:30

we'll bring you all of the big

stories from the NFL tonight

0:01:300:01:33

and with only three weeks remaining

before we reach the playoffs

0:01:330:01:35

and our 32 teams become 12 every

story is a big story.

0:01:350:01:38

That being said, one

story dominated the week.

0:01:380:01:41

1st down...

0:01:430:01:47

Looks.

0:01:470:01:50

He's going to run.

0:01:500:01:53

Flag thrown as he goes

into the end zone.

0:01:530:02:00

He's got to stop doing that.

0:02:000:02:02

He has got sandwiched

at the goal line

0:02:020:02:04

between Mark Barron and Morgan Fox.

0:02:040:02:05

So he takes a lump.

0:02:050:02:06

He took a shot on the

last run that he had.

0:02:060:02:09

He took a shot on the

last run that he had.

0:02:090:02:09

So they've got to check him out.

0:02:090:02:12

It's confirmed on Monday that

Carson Wentz, the man

0:02:120:02:14

who has orchestrated

0:02:140:02:16

the Philadelphia Eagles

rise to the top seeds

0:02:160:02:19

in the NFL, would miss the rest

of the season with a torn ACL.

0:02:190:02:22

Before we come onto what it means

for the Eagles, it is heartbreaking

0:02:220:02:25

for him, isn't it?

0:02:250:02:26

No question about that, man.

0:02:260:02:28

This was a guy having

a phenomenal season.

0:02:280:02:30

People saying this guy

could be MVP of the league.

0:02:300:02:36

And because it happened so late he's

going to miss time next season.

0:02:360:02:39

Horrible.

0:02:390:02:40

Absolutely.

0:02:400:02:41

You hate to see this.

0:02:410:02:42

You hear Philadelphia fans saying,

like, don't get too excited,

0:02:420:02:45

what could go wrong,

what could go wrong?

0:02:450:02:46

And then this happens.

0:02:460:02:47

You know?

0:02:470:02:49

You feel really bad for him.

0:02:490:02:50

He argueably could have won the MVP.

0:02:500:02:52

And like you said, ultimately he's

going to have a long, long rehab.

0:02:520:02:57

And what does it do when for

the rest of the group when you know,

0:02:570:03:00

for most of this season,

in the back of their mind,

0:03:000:03:03

the Eagles players will be thinking

we could go to a Super Bowl here.

0:03:030:03:08

Then all of a sudden all of these

doubts will be swirling around.

0:03:080:03:12

Yeah, absolutely.

0:03:120:03:13

One thing Philadelphia

have done well is they

0:03:130:03:14

have built that team right.

0:03:140:03:16

They've built it

on their running game and

0:03:160:03:18

their front seven and that puts

crazy pressure on your quarterback.

0:03:180:03:20

So I think they have a team, and

they've built a roster that they can

0:03:200:03:24

actually win without a quarterback.

0:03:240:03:25

I think they could win.

0:03:250:03:29

The guy who they've got behind him,

Nick Foles, he's a pretty

0:03:290:03:32

decent quarterback.

0:03:320:03:33

They can win games.

0:03:330:03:34

Are they going to be able

to win the big game?

0:03:340:03:37

Probably not in this situation.

0:03:370:03:38

So, will they be able to protect

Nick Foles enough in the

0:03:380:03:41

same way we've seen some other teams

with their offensive line being able

0:03:410:03:44

to protect their quarterbacks?

0:03:440:03:45

Absolutely.

0:03:450:03:46

Like he said, they have built

offensively and they have a

0:03:460:03:49

really strong running game.

0:03:490:03:50

They are not going to ask

Nick Foles to go out

0:03:500:03:52

there and carry the football team,

it is going to be carried on

0:03:520:03:55

the strength of the defense and

the running game, he should be OK.

0:03:550:03:59

But what it also does,

it gives a boost to other

0:03:590:04:02

teams in the NFC now,

Minnesota, for example,

0:04:020:04:04

the Rams, for example,

who will think, now our chances

0:04:040:04:06

have suddenly improved.

0:04:060:04:07

Yeah.

0:04:070:04:08

They are going to try and get

after the quarterback, try and get

0:04:080:04:11

after him and rattle him,

but the one thing they have got

0:04:110:04:14

is they don't have recent film.

0:04:140:04:15

He hasn't been on the field.

0:04:150:04:17

They don't know how he has gotten

better, so the advantage

0:04:170:04:19

is to Nick Foles on that.

0:04:190:04:21

All right.

0:04:210:04:22

You are looking for the positive!

0:04:220:04:23

Yeah!

0:04:230:04:24

They haven't got the tape on him!

0:04:240:04:26

Why do you have this here?

0:04:260:04:27

It became a knee brace.

0:04:270:04:29

All right.

0:04:290:04:30

I'm just trying to show

you all the uses for this.

0:04:300:04:32

LAUGHTER

0:04:320:04:34

It can be a knee brace.

0:04:340:04:35

So, for the rest of this

show you're going to

0:04:350:04:37

try and find a different use

for a fez in every link, are you?

0:04:370:04:41

Look, up here with you two,

I've got to show value.

0:04:410:04:43

I've got to show value.

0:04:430:04:45

Good luck with that.

0:04:450:04:46

I dread to think what

you'll be doing with it

0:04:460:04:48

next time we see you on camera.

0:04:480:04:50

You can catch the highlights

to the Eagles/Rams game we talked

0:04:500:04:52

about on our Tuesday NFL This Week

show, and that's on the

0:04:520:04:55

iPlayer right now.

0:04:550:04:56

We are going to show you some

highlights now between one

0:04:560:04:59

of the many great games that took

place last weekend.

0:04:590:05:01

Both teams were chasing top spot

in their respective divisions,

0:05:010:05:04

and also the invaluable automatic

playoff qualification that

0:05:040:05:06

a division win provides.

0:05:060:05:10

a division win provides.

0:05:100:05:10

It's a long haul special,

from the Pacific

0:05:110:05:13

north-west corner of

the United States to

0:05:130:05:15

Jacksonville, Florida.

0:05:150:05:16

The Seattle Seahawks

and the Jaguars,

0:05:160:05:18

NFC against AFC, West against South,

Super Bowl champions of four

0:05:180:05:21

seasons ago against one of the

newest franchises, who have not yet

0:05:210:05:24

been for the big one.

0:05:240:05:25

What's that name?

0:05:250:05:26

Jaguars!

0:05:260:05:30

Two teams chasing the playoff

spot in tightly fought

0:05:300:05:32

divisions with the

weeks running out.

0:05:320:05:33

The Jaguars with a mighty defense.

0:05:330:05:35

Jacksonville is alive!

0:05:350:05:37

But can they stop Russell Wilson?

0:05:370:05:41

2nd & 9.

0:05:500:05:52

Floating...

0:05:520:05:53

Jacksonville touchdown

for the rookie Westbrook!

0:05:530:05:56

The defense on the spot again.

0:05:560:06:02

Floating for Baldwin.

0:06:020:06:03

He's got it.

0:06:030:06:10

It's a Seahawks touchdown.

0:06:100:06:11

Blake Bortles has played well today.

0:06:110:06:12

Deep, he's got it!

0:06:120:06:14

Cole!

0:06:140:06:19

Touchdown Jacksonville.

0:06:190:06:22

This is a good defense,

he's making some great throws.

0:06:220:06:26

Watch this one, in stride, Cole

doesn't even have to break stride.

0:06:260:06:35

Mickens is loose, Jaydon Mickens,

can he take it all the way?

0:06:430:06:47

Oh!

0:06:470:06:48

One yard short.

0:06:480:06:53

Sets up the Jaguars.

0:06:540:06:55

Leonard Fournette,

touchdown, Jacksonville.

0:06:550:06:58

Let's see this celebration.

0:06:580:07:05

A little bowling.

0:07:050:07:12

23 game-winning drives

through this year in the final

0:07:120:07:14

quarter for Russell Wilson.

0:07:140:07:15

Down three scores.

0:07:150:07:16

Slips away.

0:07:160:07:17

Open downfield is Richardson.

0:07:170:07:18

He puts a move on and

touchdown Seahawks!

0:07:180:07:20

Watch the escape.

0:07:200:07:21

Watch him step.

0:07:210:07:23

And also watch the strength

to get away and step up.

0:07:230:07:26

Poise in the pocket.

0:07:260:07:28

Again, we've talked

about this all game, you have

0:07:280:07:31

to protect the middle of the field.

0:07:310:07:35

When Russell scrambles he wants

to go to the middle of the field

0:07:350:07:38

and there is Paul Richardson,

wide-open, against Gibson

0:07:380:07:40

in the middle of the field.

0:07:400:07:49

It has been a tough day for him

with three interceptions, but he

0:07:490:07:52

is open...

0:07:520:07:53

Lockett is going to

take it for Seattle.

0:07:530:07:55

Another big play.

0:07:550:07:57

4th down and nine.

0:07:570:08:02

Extra pressure coming on Wilson.

0:08:020:08:04

Down the sideline.

0:08:040:08:05

Incomplete.

0:08:050:08:06

No flags.

0:08:060:08:09

Jacksonville makes a statement

and stand up to Seattle.

0:08:090:08:12

Jacksonville makes a statement

and stands up to Seattle.

0:08:120:08:15

Doug Marrone and the Jaguars,

their ninth win of the

0:08:150:08:22

season, they have guaranteed their

first winning season since 2007,

0:08:220:08:24

sole possession of top

spot in the AFC South.

0:08:240:08:26

Well, for all of this season

when we've been talking about

0:08:260:08:29

the Jaguars, it has been

about their defense.

0:08:290:08:32

But, actually, Blake Bortles

is doing OK at the moment.

0:08:320:08:35

Yeah, and judging by Jason's

standards, Blake "The Goat"

0:08:350:08:37

Bortles...

0:08:370:08:38

LAUGHTER

0:08:380:08:39

He had an outstanding game.

0:08:390:08:43

All of a sudden he's the best

quarterback in the entire AFC.

0:08:430:08:46

LAUGHTER

0:08:460:08:51

If I was to paraphrase,

he might be suggesting that

0:08:510:08:53

Blake Bortles has gone to the top

of your list of great

0:08:530:08:56

mediocre quarterbacks.

0:08:560:08:57

I just watch the tape, Mark,

I just watch the tape.

0:08:570:09:00

That's it.

0:09:000:09:01

But do you know what?

0:09:010:09:03

We got on Blake, we said

he was the weakness of the team,

0:09:030:09:06

he figured out a way to make throws

that he needs to make.

0:09:060:09:10

The players around him

are playing well and he

0:09:100:09:12

needs to make those third-down

conversions that he's doing.

0:09:120:09:14

And the short passes.

0:09:140:09:15

He's not throwing the ball

all the way down the field.

0:09:150:09:18

Ultimately he has made

some good throws.

0:09:180:09:19

He did throw the ball

down the field.

0:09:190:09:21

I'll take that back,

I take that back.

0:09:210:09:23

OK, a couple more interesting noises

came out of Jacksonville after that

0:09:230:09:26

win, that they might be feeling

a little bit disrespected in all

0:09:260:09:29

of the conversations about the AFC

that everybody's focusing on.

0:09:290:09:31

The Patriots, and the Steelers,

and they very much believe

0:09:310:09:34

that the AFC is there

for the taking.

0:09:340:09:44

Yeah, no question.

0:09:510:09:53

Especially if they can

get Blake Bortles to

0:09:530:09:55

continue playing like this.

0:09:550:09:56

Because defensively we know

they are outstanding.

0:09:560:09:59

Outstanding front four.

0:09:590:10:00

They have the secondary who can

really do some things.

0:10:000:10:02

Running back...

0:10:020:10:04

They have all of the pieces

in place, besides the quarterback

0:10:040:10:06

position, and if he plays the way

he's capable of playing,

0:10:060:10:09

the way he played last week,

they are going to make a deep run

0:10:090:10:12

into the playoffs.

0:10:120:10:13

So, where are we at,

then, Bortles, Keenum,

0:10:130:10:15

Smith, what's your one,

two, three at the moment?

0:10:150:10:17

LAUGHTER

0:10:170:10:18

I like Case Keenum.

0:10:180:10:19

Case Keenum one.

0:10:190:10:20

Only those three?

0:10:200:10:21

Those are yours.

0:10:210:10:22

Those are your goats.

0:10:220:10:24

Those are not my goats.

0:10:240:10:25

I'm not putting this on film.

0:10:250:10:26

Not putting this on film.

0:10:260:10:27

I'm sorry.

0:10:270:10:28

That's my quarterback.

0:10:280:10:29

It's rare that we are together.

0:10:290:10:31

I'm not putting this on tape.

0:10:310:10:32

By the way, what did you do with it?

0:10:320:10:34

Wallet.

0:10:340:10:35

It's a wallet now.

0:10:350:10:36

With the little thing,

you can attach it.

0:10:360:10:38

And once again it's empty.

0:10:380:10:40

LAUGHTER

0:10:400:10:41

Now it's time for a round-up

of what else happened in week 14.

0:10:410:10:44

We've got the sunshine today.

0:10:440:10:45

We haven't got any excuses.

0:10:450:10:46

Let's turn this thing.

0:10:460:10:47

The Minnesota Vikings

at the Carolina Panthers.

0:10:470:10:49

Three touchdowns

for Jonathan Stewart.

0:10:490:10:51

And they are calling it a touchdown.

0:10:510:10:53

Cam Newton in full flow.

0:10:530:10:54

Cold-blooded Cam Newton!

0:10:540:11:04

The Oakland Raiders

at the Kansas City Chiefs,

0:11:040:11:05

six wins apiece going into the game.

0:11:050:11:07

Raiders all the way

into the end zone!

0:11:070:11:09

The Raiders are being embarrassed.

0:11:090:11:10

Job done, seven and six, the Chiefs.

0:11:100:11:13

The Washington Redskins

at the LA Chargers.

0:11:130:11:18

This ever inventive

for Keenan Allen.

0:11:180:11:21

Is the reason you're on the ground

a lot because your feet move

0:11:210:11:24

too fast for your body?

0:11:240:11:25

That's a good point.

0:11:250:11:28

The Chargers, like the Chiefs,

seven and six in the AFC.

0:11:280:11:35

The Philadelphia Eagles

at the LA Rams.

0:11:350:11:39

Top of one division

against top of another.

0:11:390:11:43

Close all the way, back and forth.

0:11:430:11:47

The Eagles easing

away at the very end.

0:11:470:11:50

Intercepted by the Eagles

on the pitch, touchdown,

0:11:500:11:52

the Eagles have won the NFC East.

0:11:520:11:55

But at a price.

0:11:550:11:58

New Orleans Saints at

the Atlanta Falcons.

0:11:580:12:06

The NFC south, the division

of drama, the denier of the day.

0:12:060:12:09

Deion Jones to keep this division

dramatic to the very finish.

0:12:090:12:18

That might just have saved

the Falcons' season.

0:12:180:12:20

There he is.

0:12:200:12:21

Are you good?

0:12:210:12:22

New England Patriots

at the Miami Dolphins,

0:12:220:12:24

the Super Bowl champions with twice

as many wins as the Dolphins.

0:12:240:12:27

But Tom Brady coming up

against an inspired Xavien Howard.

0:12:270:12:32

The Baltimore Ravens

at the Pittsburgh Steelers,

0:12:320:12:34

the divisional Derby,

and what a derby.

0:12:340:12:39

The Steelers ten and two

at the start, apparently on course

0:12:390:12:41

for a routine victory.

0:12:410:12:49

But Alex Collins leading a Ravens

revival, and the away team

0:12:490:12:52

into the lead, only to be overhauled

by a Chris Boswell field goal.

0:12:520:12:55

The Steelers claiming the divisional

title with a thriller.

0:12:550:12:57

Let's go!

0:12:570:12:58

Let's go!

0:12:590:13:00

Let's go!

0:13:010:13:02

Let's go!

0:13:030:13:05

A game that drew a lot

of attention last week

0:13:090:13:11

was between the Indianapolis Colts

and the Buffalo Bills.

0:13:110:13:17

-- A game that drew a lot

of attention last week

0:13:170:13:20

was between the Indianapolis Colts

at the Buffalo Bills.

0:13:200:13:22

If you don't know your American

geography, Buffalo sits right

0:13:220:13:24

on the Canadian border and is prone

to the odd bit of inclement weather.

0:13:240:13:28

So this is what it looked

like in Buffalo for the game.

0:13:280:13:30

If you want a picture

representation of the definition

0:13:300:13:33

of futility, then that is that.

0:13:330:13:34

Because they tried to do the lines

with the leaf blowers,

0:13:340:13:37

but the snow just kept coming

and coming and coming.

0:13:370:13:39

There was that touchdown with

Peterman finding Kelvin Benjamin,

0:13:390:13:41

that was in the second quarter.

0:13:410:13:43

Have you ever seen...

0:13:430:13:46

I mean, this looked like more snow

than I've ever seen in a game.

0:13:460:13:50

It looked ridiculous.

0:13:500:13:51

I've never seen anything like this.

0:13:510:13:52

This is like playing in the snow

when you were a child.

0:13:520:13:55

I'll tell you what,

I would like to play in this

0:13:550:13:58

because it would slow those

fast receivers down.

0:13:580:13:59

LAUGHTER

0:13:590:14:00

Make it easier for me, playing

against somebody who can run fast.

0:14:000:14:07

Look at the bend on that

kick from Vinny Thierry.

0:14:070:14:10

Like Beckham!

0:14:100:14:11

LAUGHTER

0:14:110:14:12

To make it 7-7,

it took the game into overtime,

0:14:120:14:15

which, I think, was probably

the last thing, well,

0:14:150:14:17

I'm not sure about the players,

it was certainly the last thing

0:14:170:14:19

the fans wanted.

0:14:190:14:20

And LeSean McCoy won the game

with that 21 yard touchdown.

0:14:200:14:23

But to run in the snow, I mean,

it's deep snow, as well.

0:14:230:14:26

Deep snow, man, that looks

like four, five inches

0:14:260:14:28

of snow right there.

0:14:280:14:29

So I don't know how he was able.

0:14:290:14:31

He must have had those

special cleats on.

0:14:310:14:33

Who knew what he was doing.

0:14:330:14:35

-- He knew what he was doing.

0:14:350:14:36

Making cuts and everything.

0:14:360:14:38

And actually, quite a big win

for Buffalo, really,

0:14:380:14:40

in the circumstances.

0:14:400:14:41

They won it by 13-7.

0:14:410:14:42

They go to seven and six.

0:14:420:14:44

They're second in the a AFC East.

0:14:440:14:46

They are still within

a playoff shout.

0:14:460:14:49

The interesting thing about watching

those pictures from Buffalo

0:14:490:14:53

is, although there was lots of snow

it wasn't as cold as, maybe,

0:14:530:14:56

other grounds can get to.

0:14:560:14:57

Is it easier to play

in the snow, or easier to play

0:14:570:15:00

in even colder conditions?

0:15:000:15:02

No, cold.

0:15:020:15:03

Cold.

0:15:030:15:04

Listen, Mark, we played

a game against Washington.

0:15:040:15:06

In the snow?

0:15:060:15:07

It wasn't in snow.

0:15:070:15:08

It was so cold and windy.

0:15:080:15:10

I got in my stance and

the wind knocked me over.

0:15:100:15:14

For the first time in my life

I said, "I don't want to play today!

0:15:140:15:17

You guys...

0:15:170:15:18

You guys can have this game,

I don't want to play no more ever!"

0:15:180:15:24

That is just about

as bad as it gets.

0:15:240:15:26

Although I did play in the snow,

five-a-side in Brixton, Sunday,

0:15:260:15:32

we went out there and we got it

in five-a-side in the snow.

0:15:320:15:35

I'm sure it was just

like the conditions there.

0:15:350:15:37

It was not quite quite, but close.

0:15:370:15:38

Just like a tiny flake.

0:15:380:15:40

That was it.

0:15:400:15:41

And you won presumably.

0:15:410:15:42

Of course.

0:15:420:15:43

Which is why you brought it up.

0:15:430:15:46

Let's look at all the

results in Week 14.

0:15:460:15:49

Of the games you haven't seen,

The Packers needed overtime to

0:15:540:15:56

beat Cleveland, but they're still

in the hunt for a playoff place and

0:15:560:15:59

they will get Alan Rodgers back

and there was a big win for Detroit

0:15:590:16:03

against Tampa Bay.

0:16:030:16:04

Dallas beat the New York Giants.

0:16:100:16:12

There was a big defeat

for the Tennessee Titans to

0:16:140:16:16

the Arizona Cardinals.

0:16:160:16:17

That means it is

advantage Jacksonville.

0:16:170:16:19

Let's have a look at the standings.

0:16:190:16:22

The Patriots lost to

the Dolphins, but they

0:16:290:16:30

have a three game lead.

0:16:300:16:32

The Steelers are dominant in the AFC

North and have won that division.

0:16:360:16:39

It is still very tight in the West.

0:16:420:16:45

But it looks like it will be

between The Chiefs and the Chargers.

0:16:450:16:49

The playoff has the

divisional winners here.

0:16:510:16:53

The wildcards at the moment

are the Titans and the Bills.

0:16:570:16:59

But Ravens and Chargers

have the same record as the

0:16:590:17:02

Bills and then it gets complicated

over who they have beaten and

0:17:020:17:05

difficulty of opponents.

0:17:050:17:09

When you look at that,

Buffalo are still in

0:17:090:17:17

there, but it is Baltimore that are

hovering and Baltimore you think,

0:17:170:17:20

because of their quality,

certainly their defense,

0:17:200:17:23

that there will be divisional

winners who don't want to

0:17:230:17:25

play Baltimore in the playoffs.

0:17:250:17:27

Yeah, you never want to play a team

that's dominated by great

0:17:270:17:30

defense in the playoffs.

0:17:300:17:31

And you have got a quarterback

who has experience.

0:17:310:17:34

Is actually playing good football.

0:17:340:17:36

You don't want him

to get hot in the playoffs

0:17:360:17:38

if you make it.

0:17:380:17:40

OK, let's take a look

at the standings in the NFC.

0:17:400:17:43

Philadelphia top of the East.

0:17:430:17:45

They have taken that division.

0:17:510:17:52

Minnesota reeled in a bit.

0:17:520:17:56

The Rams have a one game lead over

the Seahawks in the West.

0:18:040:18:07

What that means for

the playoffs, Eagles will

0:18:100:18:12

be the top seeds at the moment.

0:18:120:18:14

Panthers and The Falcons

hold the wildcards.

0:18:140:18:18

Who is the most dangerous

of those teams going for the

0:18:230:18:25

playoffs, do you think?

0:18:250:18:29

Who would the divisional

leaders not want out of

0:18:290:18:31

that big group I gave you?

0:18:310:18:38

Oh, that's tough.

0:18:380:18:41

Anybody out of NFC South.

0:18:410:18:44

Because if they make it, and they go

on to the playoffs, they're

0:18:440:18:49

battle-tested, they're coming out

of battles every week.

0:18:490:18:51

That is a great division,

but I must say Carolina.

0:18:510:18:57

Still can't call it, Mark,

you have some good teams at the top

0:18:570:19:02

and then you have in the middle

everybody

0:19:020:19:05

seems to be the same,

like everybody's just fighting

0:19:050:19:08

each other.

0:19:080:19:08

It is difficult to call who would be

the guys who would make it.

0:19:080:19:12

The Packers are right in the middle

having done without Aaron Rodgers

0:19:120:19:15

for a couple of weeks.

0:19:150:19:18

Will say this, if Aaron

Rodgers comes back,

0:19:180:19:20

that is a team nobody wants to play.

0:19:200:19:24

I agree, but I feel like he has been

out of football a little too long.

0:19:240:19:28

He has been doing it his whole life.

0:19:280:19:30

You're right.

0:19:300:19:32

That team isn't built

for greatness without him.

0:19:320:19:35

If they were, I would

say plug him back in

0:19:350:19:38

and the machine would roll,

but I'm a little worried.

0:19:380:19:40

OK, he has not played his team.

0:19:400:19:43

I didn't put my name on that.

0:19:430:19:48

I like some of that,

this is your influence on me.

0:19:480:19:51

At this stage of

the season, we can be

0:19:510:19:54

accused of focussing on the top

teams and the playoff contenders.

0:19:540:19:57

However, not any more.

0:19:570:19:59

Last Thursday sought

to rectify this with a game

0:19:590:20:01

between two teams who are playing

basically for the love of their

0:20:010:20:04

own mothers.

0:20:040:20:05

Here is the best bits

from the Denver Broncos at the

0:20:050:20:08

Indianapolis Colts.

0:20:080:20:10

First down, touchdown!

0:20:210:20:25

Osweiler looking left.

0:20:270:20:28

He has the advantage.

0:20:280:20:31

Hooker with the hurdle.

0:20:310:20:33

The sideline and the touchdown.

0:20:330:20:35

A terrific athletic play.

0:20:350:20:36

It looked really good.

0:20:360:20:39

But it ain't going to count!

0:20:390:20:41

What a shame.

0:20:410:20:43

This one goes on your highlight

reel no matter what.

0:20:430:20:46

Over the top without

breaking stride.

0:20:460:20:51

Only two players have

caught passes tonight.

0:20:510:20:55

Osweiler, touchdown.

0:20:550:21:02

For a moment Walker

is in for Bostick

0:21:020:21:04

at linebacker.

0:21:040:21:06

A shot up the end zone

and Latimer caught it for

0:21:060:21:09

the touchdown.

0:21:090:21:15

Shot down the middle.

0:21:150:21:18

Into the arms of Heuerman

and he is in for the touchdown.

0:21:180:21:22

Trying to make it a nine-point lead.

0:21:220:21:24

Latimer.

0:21:240:21:25

Did the hand come down first?

0:21:250:21:27

He has ruled a touchdown.

0:21:270:21:31

You guys know I have been

on a rollercoaster for about two

0:21:310:21:38

years and I'm just to go out there,

Thursday night football, with my

0:21:380:21:41

team mates, who I love

and I was just having fun.

0:21:410:21:45

Here are all the rest

of the week 15 fixtures.

0:21:450:21:47

We will need a longer

highlights show

0:21:520:21:54

you to show you all these, because

there are mouth-watering ones

0:21:540:21:56

wherever you look.

0:21:560:21:57

And in fact, after we're off

air, there is a game

0:21:570:22:00

tonight, which is

the Chargers at the

0:22:000:22:02

Chiefs which is massive

in the AFC West.

0:22:020:22:03

And Philip Rivers, what do I say?

0:22:040:22:06

Balling!

0:22:060:22:09

Oh my God, he is balling, man.

0:22:090:22:12

And his receiver, Allan is arguably

one of the best in the league.

0:22:120:22:16

And defensively, I love

what they're doing.

0:22:160:22:18

You can agree on that?

0:22:180:22:21

No question, Philip Rivers is having

an outstanding season.

0:22:210:22:24

At 36 years of age,

showing he has it all.

0:22:240:22:27

The entire package.

0:22:270:22:29

Him and his offensive

co-ordinator are on the

0:22:290:22:31

exact same page defensively,

those rushes coming off the edge.

0:22:310:22:34

This is a team nobody wants

to play against now.

0:22:340:22:36

Even though they have got

to go into Kansas City

0:22:360:22:39

for this game, you would still

favour the Chargers.

0:22:390:22:41

It is an advantage

playing away, because all

0:22:410:22:43

their home games feel

like they're playing away.

0:22:430:22:46

Ultimately this is helping them.

0:22:460:22:48

This what is makes them so scary.

0:22:480:22:50

Does this game decide the AFC West?

0:22:500:22:52

No question about it,

these are the two teams right

0:22:520:22:54

now who are playing the best

football, whoever wins this game

0:22:540:22:57

will have the momentum going

forward, if Kansas city doesn't put

0:22:570:22:59

a stop to the Los Angeles Chargers

now, no one in the AFC West is going

0:22:590:23:03

to be able to put a halt to it.

0:23:030:23:05

I feel like we haven't done

predictions for a while and then

0:23:050:23:08

given everybody the opportunity to

latch at your predictions when they

0:23:080:23:11

don't come true.

0:23:110:23:12

Chargers or Chiefs?

0:23:120:23:13

Chargers.

0:23:130:23:14

Chiefs.

0:23:140:23:15

Ooh!

0:23:150:23:16

Really?

Really.

0:23:160:23:17

After you just said all that?

0:23:170:23:18

I'm going for The Chiefs this game.

0:23:180:23:23

Andy Reid he just has a sneaky way

of coming up on you.

0:23:230:23:27

Even though The Chargers

are the better

0:23:270:23:29

team, this game I'm

going for The Chiefs.

0:23:290:23:33

Never thought I'd

live to see the day.

0:23:330:23:35

Let's take a look at some more

of the Week 15 fixtures.

0:23:350:23:38

Packers at the Panthers.

0:23:420:23:43

Carolina got to figure it out.

0:23:430:23:44

They have got to bounce

back from a good win.

0:23:440:23:47

Let's.

0:23:470:23:48

I'm going Carolina.

0:23:480:23:49

I will go Carolina as well.

0:23:490:23:50

I don't think you have

to bounce back from a win!

0:23:500:23:53

You know they always kind of play.

0:23:530:23:54

They kind of play...

0:23:540:23:55

They're up and down.

0:23:550:23:56

Up and down.

0:23:560:23:57

Where's that?

0:23:570:24:00

They need some consistency.

0:24:000:24:02

That means bounce back.

0:24:020:24:05

Panthers or Packers.

0:24:050:24:07

You almost talked me out

of it, but Panthers.

0:24:070:24:09

Yeah.

0:24:090:24:10

I'm going Panthers in this game.

0:24:100:24:12

Here are some of the others and this

is arguably the biggest

0:24:120:24:15

game of Week 15.

0:24:150:24:17

Not The Titans at the 49ers.

0:24:210:24:22

Patriots at the Steelers

and the relevance here is whoever

0:24:220:24:25

wins this should get home advantage

all the way through to the Super

0:24:250:24:29

Bowl, yes.

0:24:290:24:31

Yes and you are 100%.

0:24:310:24:34

If you're a betting

man, you're going

0:24:340:24:36

to put everything you have

on New England Patriots.

0:24:360:24:39

Not because they're that

much better than the

0:24:390:24:41

Pittsburgh Steelers,

but because they're coming off

0:24:410:24:43

a loss and Bill Bellichick

is going

0:24:430:24:45

to be furious.

0:24:450:24:48

He is going to have those

boys ready to play.

0:24:480:24:50

Tom Brady's going to be ready to go.

0:24:500:24:52

He didn't have a good

game against Miami.

0:24:520:24:54

So you have to go with

The Patriots there.

0:24:540:24:56

Well, there are two things there.

0:24:560:24:58

One again really?

0:24:580:24:59

Two even when they come off a win,

he gives the impression of

0:24:590:25:02

being furious.

0:25:020:25:03

But really?

0:25:030:25:05

You know what, Mark,

I'm starting to realise that

0:25:050:25:07

this is my my job and I have to go

with my head and instead of

0:25:070:25:11

my heart.

0:25:110:25:12

That is why I'm picking

these games now.

0:25:120:25:14

Two and a half years into doing

this show and you just

0:25:140:25:16

realised it's your job.

0:25:160:25:18

Right.

0:25:180:25:19

Well, it is going to

be all about defense.

0:25:190:25:21

Whoever's defense steps

up to the challenge

0:25:210:25:22

is going ultimately win.

0:25:220:25:25

What you saw in the Patriots defense

against Miami, which was a little

0:25:250:25:28

bit all over the place,

because Cutler did very

0:25:280:25:30

well against them.

0:25:300:25:32

Can you see them stopping an offense

that was as impressive as the

0:25:320:25:35

Steelers against The Raiders?

0:25:350:25:38

If the Ravens defense

couldn't stop them,

0:25:380:25:41

how can the Patriots?

0:25:410:25:42

Patriots have their biggest weapon.

0:25:420:25:44

They're going to try and double

team and Tony Brown take

0:25:440:25:47

them away.

0:25:470:25:47

They're not going to let them do

what he did last week.

0:25:470:25:50

You also have Le'Veon Bell.

0:25:500:25:51

You have Juju Smith

Schuster coming back.

0:25:510:25:53

So you can't stop them

all, so these defenses

0:25:530:25:55

both got to step it up.

0:25:550:25:57

Having Ryan Shazier out really

hurts them as a defense.

0:25:570:26:02

I saw the film.

0:26:020:26:03

They didn't look as fast.

0:26:030:26:04

So they're going to

have to step it up.

0:26:040:26:07

They're doing it for him

though aren't they?

0:26:070:26:09

They are.

0:26:090:26:10

That is a good guy.

0:26:100:26:12

The home field advantage

that the Steelers have?

0:26:120:26:14

Definitely.

0:26:140:26:16

That plays.

0:26:160:26:17

The towels will be out.

0:26:170:26:18

You're going for the Steelers?

0:26:180:26:20

I'm going for the Steelers.

0:26:200:26:21

And you're going for The Patriots.

0:26:210:26:24

50 push ups?

0:26:240:26:25

Yeah.

0:26:250:26:26

We've just got time...

0:26:260:26:28

What you're going to do press

ups as a bet on that?

0:26:280:26:31

Yeah.

0:26:310:26:32

Man, I don't know about 50!

0:26:320:26:33

What, right there?

0:26:330:26:34

Right there.

0:26:340:26:35

50 press ups.

0:26:350:26:36

Can I break them up?

0:26:360:26:37

You can break them up.

0:26:370:26:39

You can do 25 and 25.

0:26:390:26:40

OK, over the course of two shows?

0:26:400:26:42

Let's end with some highs

and lows from the week.

0:26:420:26:47

Just watch this one-handed

catch from Seth DeValve.

0:26:470:26:50

You don't even see it

first time around.

0:26:560:26:58

But this is an amazing angle.

0:26:580:26:59

Look at that for a catch.

0:26:590:27:01

They have got players

in Cleveland now.

0:27:010:27:02

They have got a couple.

0:27:020:27:03

Balling.

0:27:030:27:04

For sure.

0:27:040:27:06

So is this member

of the Bengals staff.

0:27:060:27:07

Oh.

0:27:070:27:08

All you can do.

0:27:080:27:10

Watch this for a very impressive

punt return from the

0:27:100:27:12

Packers' Trevor Davis.

0:27:120:27:12

He is a bit elusive.

0:27:130:27:14

That way.

0:27:140:27:16

That way.

0:27:160:27:17

That way.

0:27:170:27:18

Video game jukes.

0:27:180:27:19

Another one.

0:27:190:27:20

Specialities for special players.

0:27:200:27:21

They're eventually bringing him...

0:27:210:27:24

He just lay down.

0:27:240:27:26

He took a dive.

0:27:260:27:29

We don't often show defensive plays,

maybe we should a bit more.

0:27:290:27:34

There you do.

0:27:370:27:39

Chris Long.

0:27:390:27:40

That is his special.

0:27:400:27:41

I have got the record for that.

0:27:410:27:42

Chris Long with that.

0:27:420:27:44

Look amount this for

a catch in the snow

0:27:440:27:46

from Deontay Thompson

of the Buffalo Bills.

0:27:460:27:47

Man!

0:27:470:27:49

Remember him earlier in the year,

just came in first game

0:27:490:27:52

caught a bomb?

0:27:520:27:53

No.

0:27:530:27:55

I remember that.

0:27:550:27:58

The snow everywhere and Jimmy

Garoppolo is leading the 49ers out

0:27:580:28:01

with a...

0:28:010:28:02

Massive boom box.

0:28:020:28:05

Boom box, what is that?

0:28:050:28:06

They will try anything!

0:28:060:28:07

That's kind of fresh

though, I like that.

0:28:070:28:09

You like that?

0:28:090:28:10

Yeah.

0:28:100:28:11

He was balling.

0:28:110:28:12

I will be next on your

screens for NFL This Week.

0:28:120:28:15

We will somehow try and squeeze

in all the best action from

0:28:150:28:18

this weekend.

0:28:180:28:19

That will be on BBC Two at 11.15.

0:28:190:28:21

Thanks for joining us.

0:28:210:28:22

We will see you then

and they will be

0:28:220:28:24

doing the press ups.

0:28:240:28:25

Bye-bye.

0:28:250:28:26

Stop.

0:28:260:28:29

For those whose season stretches

into the new year, a sense of

0:28:290:28:33

involvement, of improving

and progressing is obvious.

0:28:330:28:38

But there are those whose

hopes are already dashed.

0:28:380:28:40

Some knew it was coming.

0:28:400:28:43

Some are mighty names

fallen on harder times.

0:28:430:28:47

For some it is cruel misfortune.

0:28:470:28:51

So these already gone will be

added another dozen.

0:28:510:28:56

Those that fall so that

the chosen few may rise.
