Wow. As in wild and wacky and weird and whether I should bang my head against the wall. As much as we hype up the start of the NFL season, it takes what? Two hours? Three hours before we are reminded it is the best and craziest reality show on TV. I hear from friends in the biz that a lot of reality shows are scripted. It is partially playing out in front of you but there's a lot of it that is scripted for the camera or enhanced for the camera. You don't even need to do that in the NFL. Sometimes in the NFL, reality is stranger than fiction. Like from the category of you can't make this stuff up, it's at times gut-wrenching, certainly tense, on the edge of your seat or throw something at the TV kind of tense. But it's also delicious and gaudy and jaw-dropping and entertaining.
All of those things. I am so, so excited to hear your overreactions because that's what week one is all about. We have such a limited sample size. We have to react but pretty much everything tends to be an overreaction as always in week one and really the first month of the NFL season. But as always in week number one we should tap the brakes.
We should tap the brakes but that's not nearly as much fun. So I am ready. I'm strapped in.
I'm ready to go. Give me your overreactions to week one in the NFL with still a game to go. Chaos rained to be sure. Chaos rained across the NFL galaxy. Wild rallies and missed kicks.
Oh my gosh, were you following the adventures in kicking on Sunday? Gaudy numbers, especially for wide receivers who change teams. We've been talking about that all of the off season.
And injuries, unfortunately injuries that are part of the game every week. So it's time to react and to overreact. We'll get the help of national insider Matt Verteram coming up from Chicago at the top of next hour. But between now and then we will stuff as much as we possibly can. A wild and wacky kickoff to the NFL season and I can't wait to hear from you.
You can find me on Twitter, ALawRadio. Go ahead, just overreact. Get it all out.
Get it all out. We're here for you. We offer instant therapy.

I'm sure not just for me, but for a lot of people because yes, there is a ton of excitement and adrenaline over the start of football, but also the 21st anniversary of 9-11. Generally, I spend most of September 11th watching documentaries, watching the news, remembering, processing, and I did tape a few documentaries because I wouldn't have been able to pay any attention to them today, but I also shared a couple photos on Twitter and Facebook that I would really appreciate if you would take a look at. These are actually photos that I took when I was in high school, and I knew I had them somewhere, but because of multiple because of multiple moves over the past 10 years, I didn't know where they were. And last summer, before the 20th anniversary of 9-11, I found these photos in a box.
I keep them out year-round now. In fact, they're on my refrigerator because I don't want to forget. I don't want this to be a one-day-a-year remembrance, and there is nothing like looking at photos of the original Twin Towers that causes me to remember, and so I would appreciate if you take a look at the photos. On Twitter or on Facebook, I did actually put them up on Facebook too, so they're there, and still on this Sunday, September 11th, I hope you'll take time to think and to remember and to reflect, and also maybe to pray and support those thousands, I'm not exaggerating, thousands and thousands of people who are still suffering with 9-11-related illnesses.
It wasn't until I moved into this area, the New York City area, which is where our headquarters are located. In fact, our CBS Sports Radio studios are 10 blocks from Ground Zero. I wasn't here 20 years ago, but it's impossible to ignore the Freedom Tower every night when I drive into work, and usually on the anniversary of 9-11, there are two purple towers of light that you can see stretching into the sky until they disappear.
They're only lit up every year at this time, but unfortunately, on Sunday, all day, and still as I drove into the city tonight, low cloud cover because it's been raining all day, and so I wasn't able to see the lights. Probably if you're right there at Ground Zero, at the 9-11 Memorial Pools, which are built in the footprints of the original Twin Towers, you could see them, but otherwise they weren't visible from anywhere outside of the immediate area because of the low cloud cover. But there are photos out there from years past, and they're beautiful, and they're a perfect memorial, but it's not just something that affected our country 21 years ago. When I moved to New York and started hearing the news, I realized that we've now lost more Americans to 9-11 related illnesses than we lost on that day. Cancers and respiratory illnesses, everything you could possibly imagine, and so there are organizations out there that you can work with, partner with, donate to, to support first responders and volunteers and those who were either living near Ground Zero, working near Ground Zero, or were volunteering to look for people in the rubble. We're digging through the rubble at Ground Zero, and of course so many first responders, police, fire, EMT, all of those who rushed toward the danger and the pile, as they called it, and volunteered for days to come, for days upon days upon weeks.
Many of them are now paying the price if they haven't lost their lives already. So it's a tragedy, a terror attack that is still taking lives here in the United States of America. So I wanted to be sure that I mentioned that because football is football, and I really appreciate how football, as well as other sports, pause to mark what is a day that changed our nation's course forever. Wherever you were watching football or maybe you were watching NASCAR and you saw the incredible national anthem and flyover, I happened to have the national anthem playing from MetLife, which if you don't know, the stadium where the Jets and Giants call home is not even 15 miles from Ground Zero.
In fact, it's probably closer to 10, right across the Hudson River. And not only did they have a member, I think it was a member of the NYPD, it was a member of law enforcement, a first responder, who sang the national anthem. But she started it and then she put the microphone down and instead the crowd at MetLife belted out the national anthem. It was really powerful. Of course, they had the flag and there was cheering and then there were chants of USA at the end of it. So that was something that was worth seeing.
If you haven't, I'm sure it's out there on social media. And I know around the country there were moments of silence. There were special renditions of the anthem. There were different memorials and services even wrapped up in sports. And that's important because sports were part of the healing process for our country in those days after 9-11, when we needed something, anything.
Sports do have this undeniable power to unify and to help us heal. And they did that 21 years ago today and they still do it now in 2022. So I hope you'll check out these photos.
I took them myself when I was in high school. I had no idea, of course, what was to come. None of us did.
But on Twitter, A-LOL Radio and also on our Facebook page. So yes, we're going to dive into the NFL. And if you'll permit me one more detour, this is not a night where we're going to do a ton of other sports storylines or headlines. Huge weekend of upsets in college football. Some of those mid-majors biting back again at the U.S. Open. A 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz wins his first ever major title and he'll be the youngest number one ranked player ever. 19 years old.
He's the number one player in the world. Of course, there was baseball. I actually was at Yankee Stadium on Saturday.
Oh, scorching hot. But so was the Yankees offense. Suddenly back-to-back days with 10 runs against the Rays.
And so they have preserved that lead in the A.L. East for now. But we're not going to get to a lot of that. However, there is one non-football storyline that we cannot ignore. The infield in on the right side, back on the left side.
There's a long one. Left field down the line and it's a gutter. 696 for Albert Pujols. Tie game in Pittsburgh.
The young deals. Pujols swings and lifts a high fly ball. That's it, Dave. Center field. If I go, it's a gutter. It's a gutter for Pujols. He gives the Cardinals the lead in the ninth inning with home run.
6-9-7. There's impressive and then there's unbelievable. And what we're witnessing right now is absolutely legendary. Gosh darn, you take a step back from managing the game when he's up and you just kind of take it all in. And I'm not sure what we're witnessing right now. Oliver Marmel, not sure what we're witnessing right now, but it is phenomenal.
And at times, there are no words. In Pittsburgh, Albert Pujols hits 696 on Saturday. 696 on Saturday. Tying Alex Rodriguez for fourth place all-time on baseball's home run list.
But on Sunday afternoon, he blasts number 697. Not only is he three home runs away from baseball immortality, but he is now in sole possession of fourth place on the all-time home run list. And yes, he has plenty of time. Plenty of time to be able to get that record. Several weeks still to go.
And I'm all about it. As for Albert Pujols, you can see the huge smiles on his faces, his faces. On his one face, you can see the huge smiles on his face whenever he hits.
Home runs. And have you guys noticed? I hope, in fact, I retweeted one of the highlights.
I think it was from 697 today. But have you noticed the gigantic embraces from Yachty or Molina every time he does anything? Because these guys have been together, and I know Pujols was gone for a while, but they're brothers. They started in St. Louis. They won Super Bowls. They won World Series in St. Louis. Now they're back together again.
They're both in their 40s. And Yachty has been along for the ride. And so I love that he is the first to greet Albert every time he gets back to the dugout.
But then he goes through the gauntlet in the dugout. And I mean, the guys are so thrilled. It's not that they care more about Albert than winning, but right now, his home runs continue to be clutch, actually. And they put the team ahead.
They turn into game winners. They're in awe. They're in awe of Albert as he pursues this history. And I'm so, so thankful that he's getting a chance to do it with the Cardinals.
It's pretty special. I think I'm aware of where I am in the history of the game. But at the end of the day, I never, 21 years ago, when I make the ball club, that wasn't something I was chasing. And 22 years later, I don't think I'm going to change my approach. I think I'm going to let things happen and just try to enjoy.
And if it happens, it happens. If not, then at the end of the day, I think everybody, including myself, are pretty blessed with the career that I have. So I told you once he hit 695 that everything was massive after that. 696 on Saturday, 697 on Sunday. He's now in sole possession of fourth place all-time with plenty of games to go. I won't give you the exact number, but I will tell you this. Some guy wrote to me on Twitter, I'm going to assume he was joking, but you know what happens when you assume, and said, man, if he gets to 700, maybe he'll make it into the Hall of Fame.
Yes, maybe he will make it into the Baseball Hall of Fame if he gets 700. Oh my goodness. All right, coming up, deep breath. We're going to dive into the NFL, starting with Sunday Night Football. It went from bad to much, much worse for the Dallas Cowboys in the span of about 10 minutes in the fourth quarter. Love to have you find us on Twitter.
How are you overreacting, even now, to week number one? You can find our show, Twitter After Hours CBS. I already gave you my Twitter, and then our Facebook page named After the Show.
Oh, we've got so many goodies to share. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the After Hours Podcast. Brady will go under center, first and goal from the five, ball resting in between the hash marks. Here's the snap. Brady back, lobs it left corner from Mike Evans. Oh, one-handed grab. Mike Evans makes the catch, touchdown Tampa Bay. Tom Brady puts it in the air, and Mike Evans reaching up, snatches it down with one hand. The Buccaneers add to their lead. 3.23 to go in the third quarter. Tampa Bay 18, Dallas 3. The extra point coming up, and that is as good as it gets. This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Ryan Radke, along with Mike Golick on Westwood One Radio Network. Sunday Night Football is back, baby.
But it had an inauspicious debut in 2022. That was the only touchdown that was scored in this game between the Buccaneers and the Cowboys. You know what happens when you skip 11 days of training camp. No, I'm just kidding. Sorry. It wasn't just Tom Brady.
I mean, there was plenty of blame to go around. No touchdowns until late in the third quarter, and that's the one. You're the one. Nine plays, 79 yards. It was Leonard Fournette early to set up the pass, and then Mike Evans with a one-handed twisting touchdown grab as he's falling down on his back. He is so good at those over-the-shoulder one-handed grabs, and as they noted on the NBC broadcast, this third year now with Tom Brady has been so unbelievably productive for him in his career. But you know, he's got a string of 1,000-yard seasons, too, that really underscores his consistency. I'm so glad for him that he has an opportunity to play with Tom Brady at this point in his career. And how about Julio Jones? I love this new opportunity for Julio. We got a healthy dose of Julio in this first game of 2022 as well. He grabbed three balls for 69 yards, and his long was a 48-yarder that was unbelievably difficult, the high degree of difficulty, and yet somehow that's Julio, right?
So the Bucks get the win, but there's plenty of ugly to go around for Tom Brady and for Todd Bowles, the new head coach of the Buccaneers. You know, we're in game defense. That'll win you a lot of games in the NFL, so very happy to see that line play the way they played. The backs played great. Receivers made a lot of great plays. Yeah, we just didn't finish in the red area. I threw a bad interception, so a lot of room for improvement.
So we get back to work. Got a huge game this week, going up against one of the tough teams in the league and a really well-coached team, but it's a good win, but long, long season. I thought the guys did a great job in preparation. You know, they went out there and made plays. They were focused all week. The biggest thing was communication, you know. Hats off to the guys.
Devin Levante led them with Vida, led all the guys, and they were in sync, and I thought they did a great job tonight. So Dallas does waste that Tom Brady interception, which he immediately claimed as my bad and my fault. They follow it up with a three-and-out, but that was a pretty common problem for the Dallas Cowboys.
Didn't have a whole lot going offensively even before the middle of the fourth quarter, and that's when things got real dire for Dallas. Prescott, it was on that throw to Brown as he was following through Shaq Barrett, made contact. They're checking out around that right thumb and wrist area, and it was with the hands of Barrett. A lot of times you'll see the quarterback hand hit the helmet of a defender. Barrett's hands were up, and his deck's hand went right into Shaq's hands. In the game, just in the midst of it, thought I jammed it. I mean, I've hit my hand on helmets or bodies a lot in my career and never really had anything, maybe a jammed finger here, and I actually thought that's what it was. Just the next play, you realize I couldn't grip the ball, let the sideline know, and then when I got off, yeah, I told the trainers the same thing. Just got to go see the doctor tomorrow. Plans to see him surgery tomorrow and let me know once they get in there, they see everything.
I was told it was much cleaner than it could have been. Just unfortunate, obviously going to miss some time, not be there for my team, and that's what hurts more than anything, especially after the start that we just put out there. Wanting to be able to respond and not necessarily having that opportunity for several weeks. Yeah, it's unfortunate, but I'll do what I've always done anytime adversity comes. Take on it, take it on head first and it will get my best.
I'm sure I'll come out of this thing better. A thumb injury that requires surgery, according to not just Dak, but Jerry Jones as well, and the news broke fairly quickly after this Sunday night football loss. So he left the field.
He jogged to the locker room. I am just on an NFL network again. He's kind of working that thumb, and if you've ever played sports, it's probably a sensation you've experienced. A jammed thumb or jammed fingers.
I used to get them all the time when I played basketball, but this was something more serious. A fracture near the thumb on his throwing hand. Cooper Rush immediately came into the game.
That did not work. This was not Cooper Magic like what we got. Was it a Monday Night Football game in 2021? Nah, and the Bucs offense has plenty of room for improvement. That offensive line has seen a bunch of transition, but Leonard Fournette 127 yards. The Buccaneers are able to come up with four sacks and a takeaway. Keep in mind that the Cowboys defense played really well for a good portion of this game. Micah Parsons had two sacks picking up where he left off last year.
But without Dak Prescott, it's time to overreact about the Cowboys. I saw this nerd alert. It's the first one of the NFL season.
Are you ready? The last time the Cowboys had fewer than six points in their season opener, 1989. That's nerd stuff.
Oh dear. I'm sure there are plenty of Cowboy fans who are reacting and overreacting. I don't know how many people are blaming Mike McCarthy, but he recognized the offense wasn't stellar even before they lost Dak. I just think offensively, you know, we were, you know, our rhythm was up and down. You know, I thought we came out, you know, started the way we needed to start. We had some deceptives in the first drive that didn't hit, but you know, I thought we were in, we were in a good rhythm, you know, we were productive and we just, we just weren't able to sustain drives and put points on the board. Whatever you thought you were going to get from Bucks and Cowboys, this probably wasn't it. The fact that we got one touchdown, it was still worth watching because of the star power and because it's week one.
But if you were looking for offense, well, there was a game just before this one that provided plenty. He now puts in motion Hardman to set up three wide to the right side. Now they float a pass to the near side and it's caught. Touchdown Kansas City, Travis Kelce on a nine yard corner route, perfectly thrown by Mahomes and a great route by Kelce. Chase first down and goal to go at the three. They go to a two back set, both Hardman and Edwards-Hilaire in the back field at the same time.
They shovel it inside Edwards-Hilaire. Touchdown, Kansas City, two drives, two touchdowns. Ball on the far hash, raising the right leg, fourth and two chiefs at the cardinal four. Swing it right side Edwards-Hilaire, angling inside touchdown, Kansas City inside the near front pylon. Mahomes firing it left side, he wants Jody Forksen, comes back to the ball, caught, touchdown Kansas City, Jody Forksen all the way back from the Achilles injury and he tastes the sweet nectar of the end zone. Running back is McKinnon, he had the cutback run earlier in this drive. They fake it to him, they throw left, it's caught by Hardman, touchdown Kansas City.
Hardman goes right to left in motion and then gets a free area right at the goal line. A two-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes, his fifth of the game. Guys were just ready to go. They're excited to get out there and show what we had. We've kind of, the whole offseason, everybody's asked us the questions of what this offense, what this team's going to look like and we've always believed that we were going to go out there and put on a show and I thought guys did that and so to go out there and win a game gets a really good football team and to win decisively, it's a good start.
It's a good start, he says. Now see, I was told the Chiefs were going to stink this year. Mahomes magic. I was told the Chiefs were maybe, maybe going to be the fourth best team in the AFC West. I was told that we should lower expectations for one Patrick Mahomes because without Tyreek Hill, well, he's only got Travis Kelce.
Huh, maybe next week they will be right. Five touchdowns, 488 total yards and you can say this was against the Cardinals blah blah blah but that does not fly. The Cardinals are expected to be a winning team this year. Well, they expect to be a winning team after they gave all that money to Kyler Murray. 22 of 34 for Kyler, not even 200 yards and a couple of scores but it was too little and it was way, way, way too late. I think it was good for us, for this to happen to us. I don't know why or whoever felt good about, you know, you can't feel yourself in this league. You get embarrassed and that's kind of, like I said, what kind of what happened today.
Good team over there. They executed, you could tell, you know, there's there's complete difference. Energy was higher and they didn't shoot themselves in the foot so that's what's going to happen when you do those things. He said you can't feel yourself in this league and that's kind of what happened here today. Maybe they were reading the press about how the Chiefs were going to stink this year. Huh. Yeah, the reports of the Chiefs demise is greatly exaggerated. Greatly. So if you needed some offense, that was the right place to look.
Are you reacting or are you overreacting? You can find me on Twitter, ALawRadio, also on our Facebook page. We'll do a little of both coming up at the top of the hour with our national NFL insider who will join us from Chicago or the place where it was a monsoon for the Bears and the Niners. Still to come, oh the AFC North. Never a dull moment.
You are listening to the After Hours Podcast. Herbert under center, pullback Corvat behind him, Ecklund. Third and goal. Herbert takes the handoff again to Horvath. Touchdown Chargers.
Horvath welcome to the league. Second and two. Herbert takes the shotgun snap. Look into his left throw in middle of the field. Caught Carter into the end zone. Touchdown Chargers. Herbert to De'Andre Carter for 23 yards. Herbert's shotgun takes the handoff to Kelly. Now running to his left, throwing to his left, trying to thread it. He's got a man caught into the end zone. Touchdown Chargers. Gerald Everett from Justin Herbert, 18 yards for the score. Off the field, on the money and after hours, it's time to talk football with Amy Lawrence. Justin Herbert and that Chargers offense is, it's new.
It's transitioning. Do you know that his three touchdown passes against the Raiders were to three brand new Chargers? Three guys that weren't on the roster last year.
How about that? A gangster quarterback. Sometimes it takes a gangster quarterback to bring everything together.
I wonder if Tom Brady was jealous. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Matt Smith on Chargers Radio. Now you can point to the offense and certainly we are obsessed with our QBs.
Justin Herbert deserves that. We'll hear from him about the offense itself coming up, but did you notice what the Chargers new look defense did? Three interceptions off Derek Carr and five sacks of one Derek Carr.
It was awesome. You know, I've been seeing that all camp long. You know, they make plays, they get pressure on the quarterback and that secondary is special and they're tough to throw on and when you get guys like Bryce and Zont, Votto and Derwin Nas, you know, it's really fun to watch. I'm going to assume that you are not surprised that Khalil Mack had three of those sacks.
You want to talk about masterful and major move made by the Chargers to reinforce their defense in a division that has quarterbacks galore. Hello, five touchdowns for Patrick Mahomes, three for Justin Herbert. We know that Derek Carr can throw TDs.
He's chuck and duck, but he did have his first touchdown connection with Devante Adams, his brand new top flight wide receiver in this one. Devante grabs 10 catches for 141 yards and a score. His first as a Raider comes inside of five minutes to go in the fourth quarter. And at that point, despite Carr's three interceptions, the Raiders are within five and they do have one last shot left. But it was the defense of the Chargers that came through with back to back sacks on third and fourth down. That's what the Chargers were all about in this off season. And we talked about it late last week, how many new guys are on the roster for both the Chargers and the Raiders.
And so there's going to be a lot of settling in, but at least initially those car interceptions in the second half, they really derailed any momentum and of course took away multiple opportunities for them to grab the lead against the Chargers. So yeah, lots of different targets, lots of different weapons, but Herbert bringing everybody together. A great thing that we do is we're able to shuffle guys around and play multiple positions. You know, Keenan is an incredible athlete at the F. Definitely tough to play without him, but when you put in DeAndre Carter and you're able to change Josh Palmer from Z to X, Mike can play all those positions too.
And then Gerald, and you got another tight end there that can make some plays. So you have guys that are interchangeable and they will step up when something goes down. There was a lot of confidence on that group, you know, cause there was that time out and I go out there and it's like, okay, well, what are we going to call here to bring us home? And I saw 11 guys that believe that they were going to close it and they played like it today. And I think as a coach, that's what you're looking for is that they have that look in their eye, that confidence in one another, that what we call, we're going to go execute and bring us home. And what I thought you saw in two minutes, there was our rush and our coverage playing together to bring us home. Brandon Staley and Justin Herbert, of course, he'll call him a gangster quarterback any old day of the week. As for Derek Carr, outside of those three interceptions, which you really can't overlook, it was really cool to see he and Devante Adams show off this connection that goes back to college.
A lot of things. And there's also some things that him and I, we were just talking about in the locker room, the way I see it, the way he sees it. And we're trying to make that better too. So yeah, I mean, we had production, but I think that we can be better, you know, and so does he. Well, and Josh McDaniels, welcome to Vegas. Not something he had to talk about a whole lot over the course of his time with the Patriots, specifically with Tom Brady, but yes, his quarterback had three turnovers. They were sticky in coverage a little bit, you know, we had some guys that we were trying to get the ball to, you know, and I thought there was a lot of good plays, you know, and there was a, you know, Derek was a big reason why we were, we had an opportunity to win at the end too. So, you know, we're gonna, we'll take a look at all three of them and see what we could have done better to avoid, you know, letting them have an opportunity to touch the football.
Reacting and overreacting. You can do it with a question on our show, Twitter now after our CBS or on our Facebook page named after the show. Super easy to find. Still have one AFC West team that will hit the field come Monday night. That will wrap week number one, you know, another one of those revenge affairs where it is the Seattle Seahawks hosting their former QB Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio. Now, top of the hour, we're going to spend some time with a national NFL insider from Fansided who will join us from Chicago and we'll sift through as many as the story of the storylines as we possibly can once we get there and we're also going to hit the AFC North extensively because that Steelers-Bengals game was total insanity.
Insane in the membrane, no doubt. But while we're talking about revenge games, of course, the Browns were on the road in Charlotte to take on Baker Mayfield, whether or not you believe that he had plans to bleep them up in week number one. This was a brutal start for the Panthers and their new QB.
Six total yards, six yards of offense in the first quarter for the Carolina Panthers. Baker fumbles twice, but he recovers both of them. I kind of felt like I was watching the Baker in Cleveland, the bad Baker.
There's good Baker and then there's bad Baker. I mean, the Panthers barely managed 95 yards in the first half and it was a Baker interception that led to a Kareem Hunt rushing touchdown and Cleveland is able to score on three straight second quarter drives and has a double figure lead at the half, but then you see good Baker show up late third quarter. He directs an 11-place, 75-yard touchdown drive. Kind of an interesting moment if you haven't seen it. There's a fumble, I think it was a bot snap, and Christian McCaffrey picks it up and runs 32 yards.
Hello! So Baker caps that one with a seven-yard rushing touchdown and then chucks the ball like it barely missed hitting a security guard who was standing in front of, oh he was behind the the goal post, but he's standing in front of the wall. I mean he almost took the guy's head off. He was like he lost his mind because he got into the end zone on that seven-yard rushing TD. Very next Carolina drive, oh this is the this is the Baker that Browns fans were so excited about for a couple of years. Twins to the left, a tight end to each side.
That's Thomas and Ricci, Mayfield under center. Back to throw, buys time, deep downfield, Anderson wide open, 25-20, 10-5, touchdown Carolina! On Panthers radio, a 75-yard bomb to Robbie Anderson and then a field goal on the next drive and just like that, Panthers fans went from looking miserable, did you see how they were looking in the first half? Oh my gosh, miserable as was Baker, to having a one-point lead with under a minute and 15 to go.
Now Jacoby Brissett, he wasn't great, he wasn't brilliant, he certainly isn't Baker. He only had 147 yards in his score, but he does direct a short drive to get the Browns into field goal range. Well we found out it was field goal range for the rookie. This is unbelievable, this is going to be about a 60-yard attempt as the Browns are trying to get lined up.
This is what we said, can he make the prophecy come true? Come on Cade. 13 seconds left to go on the day he's three for three and now he's going to move up a couple of yards. They're going to spot it at the 48. It's a 58-yard field goal attempt by the rookie from LSU. Cade York trying to win the game for the Browns.
13 seconds remaining. He lines it up. Pohorquez with his knee on the ground at the 48. Hewlett over the ball. Snap back. He's into it. Line drive. End over end. The kick is up and it is.
It is good! Cade York had the field goal from 58 yards out with eight seconds left to go in the ballgame. That's why they drafted Cade York in the fourth round. We said get him into the 40-yard line and he hits it.
This is unbelievable, Jim. Cade York from 58 yards out. A line shot that had plenty on it and it is good and the Browns are eight seconds away from finally winning on opening day.
What? Man, we got some pretty incredible kickers in the AFC North, do we not? We're in Cleveland.
Nothing is easy here. Another one of them looking for redemption in overtime. We're going to talk AFC North. You'll hear from Baker and the Browns coming up. It's after hours on CBS Sports Radio.
