I'm not in a rush to hurting people. Fifteen years into Kirksey's life sentence, the Dixie Mafia was practically folklore, but that would soon change. I'm Jed Lipinski. This is Gone South, a documentary podcast from C-13 Originals, a Cadence 13 studio.

Season two, the Dixie Mafia, available now on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. I was just thinking how it may seem like it's a Monday in which we've got a handle on things around here. Your host has got a brain with thoughts and numbers and stats and ideas flying all the way. It's like a pinball machine in my head.

Everything's flying around, bouncing off one another. Sometimes it doesn't come out quite as clear and concise and smooth sounding as I would like it to. But then I wouldn't be me. I write like I talk. I should stick to following what I write because when I take my notes, I have to trust them. But yeah, it's been one of those nights turning into a morning in which there's lots of jumbled stuff in my brain and so some of the stuff is coming out a bit messy.

However, I've got one hour to make good. Oh, I'm going to get some redemption like Amari Cooper. I dropped the ball on fourth down. The ball literally hit me in the chest and I dropped it.

Even though this is what I do for a living. I talk about sports for a living and really it's not rocket science. Amari Cooper has caught 20,000 footballs that have hit him in the chest. I venture to say his rate of success is well above 95%. The man is awesome. Loved him since he was at Alabama. Drops a ball on fourth down that couldn't have been any more direct or perfect from Jacoby Percette.

Had to be eating him alive. He's one of those guys that takes his job very seriously, takes his routes and his craft very seriously. He sets an example for others on the team. But when he had a second opportunity, in overtime, he not only lost his defender and had such a wicked cut that his defender fell down in the rain and the wet grass. But when the ball came to him this time, he hauled it in for a 45 yarder to set up the walk off TD.

All right. This is my Amari Cooper moment. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. It was jammed full. If you're a football lover or if you're a football lover, it was jammed full. If you love NFL, you love college or you're all about the World Cup, I know that we were here together, some of us, on Thursday night into Friday morning.

But it feels like forever. The holiday weekend with all the movement and everything else that we jammed into it from Friday through Sunday night. And that's where we'll start and we'll work our way backwards because Sunday Night Football, there was so much happening. It was hard to keep up with everything that was happening on the field. 47 points scored in the first half alone between the Eagles and the Packers. And that really set the stage for what would take place in the second half.

And honestly, the numbers are eye popping. The Eagles' performance jaw dropping. And now questions about the Packers as they head into the month of December with a banged up quarterback. We're live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.

If you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family, Rocket can. So yes, early on, this was a whole lot of fly Eagles fly, run Eagles run, and smash the Packers in the mouth. Eagles going quickly again.

Hurts in the gun. Gainwell to his right. Two receivers stacked to the left.

Single man right. Here's the snap. Hurts hands it off. Gainwell straight ahead. Pushing the pile.

Getting low. Into the end zone. Touchdown, Philadelphia. Kenneth Gainwell with a four-yard touchdown run. And the Eagles strike first. They take the opening drive. 75 yards for a touchdown.

6-0 Philly with 11.19 to go in the first. Green Bay will go with two receivers right. Christian Watson single man to the left.

Rogers under center. Takes the snap. Give it to Dillon. Runs left. Playing across the 15. Cuts left 10. Down to the 5. Dillon fighting in the end zone.

And he's in. Touchdown Packers. A.J. Dillon starting left. Cutting back right. And what an answer for Green Bay. Rogers goes under center.

Takes the snap. Back to the play fake. Rogers looking, looking. Throws end zone. Caught for the touchdown.

It's Randall Cobb. Aaron Rogers finding his long-time teammate Cobb in the back middle of the end zone. And that'll tie the game. 13-13. 3.09 to go.

An 11-yard touchdown strike from Rogers to Cobb. Ryan Radke and Westwood 1 says 3.09 to go. He means 3.09 to go in the first quarter. So after the Packers take the Eagles' initial punch to the face.

That sounds so violent. After they absorb that first hit, they respond with a pair of scoring drives themselves. And before the first quarter is done, the Packers have taken a 14-13 lead.

Think about that. Four touchdowns in the first quarter. So this was not one of those games that you could fall asleep to on the couch.

It's after hours. CBS Sports Radio. What we did see with the Eagles was the ability to run the ball early and often and over and over and over again.

Wash, rinse, repeat. So Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts were able to not just find rushing lanes, but it was chunk plays. It was big chunks of yardage. And the Packers defense didn't have much of an answer. Though they were able to score two.

So before this first half was done, there were more than enough fireworks to really match up with any of the Thursday night games on Amazon Prime. Hurts left, single man right. Second and 10 from the 30.

Hurts in the gun, gets the snap. Back to pass. Looking, going deep, right side this time. And that is caught with a touchdown! He threw the back shoulder throw, and Quez Watkins got it.

Working against Douglas. What a throw, what a catch. And the Eagles have retaken the lead with 13 seconds to go here in the second quarter. It's a 30-yard touchdown pass. So not only can Jalen Hurts and that offense dominate with the ground game, which they did, and we'll get to those numbers that'll blow you away, but we know he can throw the ball.

We know he's got a variety of weapons and options at his disposal. And that's one of the qualities, one of the characteristics of a winning team. They can beat you a variety of ways. You show them one defense, you show them one look, you try to stop the run, which was not in any way successful in this game. But you try to stop the run, and they can beat you with the pass. And that's exactly what Howie Roseman had in mind when he put this Eagles team together. But it was all dependent upon Jalen Hurts, right?

Because you could have weapons out the wazoo. But if you can't get them the football, or if they're not running efficiently up and down the field because your quarterback is turning the ball over, or doesn't make the right read, or can't deliver on the money, well then it's a waste. But Jalen Hurts has stepped into this role, and he is clearly the leader of this offense that can beat you a variety of ways. I was listening to Ryan Radke and Mike Golick on Westwood One, and they were talking about just the dominance of this Eagles team, and specifically the run game, almost to the point where you've got a defense backpedaling so that they don't know which way to go, right?

They don't know what to try to do first. And it means they're chasing, they're reacting as opposed to trying to set a tone or trying to force the Eagles into particular sets or even check downs if you can. That wasn't happening in this game.

The Eagles were able to do pretty much anything they wanted. Though, as I say, the Packers were game at least initially. Now their offense kind of dried up there in the third quarter. Aaron Rodgers was hurting. He was grimacing in pain, and even before Mason Crosby caps a drive with a field goal late in the third, Rodgers was already walking away. Aaron Rodgers, before that field goal was even kicked, went jogging back into the locker room with the training staff until our friends at NBC had a shot of Rodgers on the sideline kind of tapping his side around his ribcage. Whether that's what they're looking at or not, we don't know, but he did go up into the locker room and is still in there. So obviously if he was grabbing one of the ribs or looking at one of the hits he is taking, he's starting to take a few hits.

That's ribs. And it was in the first half and then got kind of re-aggravated in the third quarter. Just having a hard time breathing and rotating my upper body. So I was worried about a punctured lung as well. So I wanted to get that checked out.

Get a scan tomorrow. He's definitely the walking wounded. No, he's playing with a broken thumb as well, and every movement seemingly was accompanied by sharp pain.

So we'll wait on his scans. But yeah, it's that time of the year with quarterbacks. The number of teams that had to start different quarterbacks this weekend, or chose to start different quarterbacks this weekend because of injuries or ineptitude, those numbers are mounting.

It's after hours, CBS Sports Radio. Jordan Love steps on the field and have you noticed? All of a sudden now, regardless of who's playing quarterback, they've got one BFF. Who's their top target? Making the handoff.

Love throws the middle. Cut Watkins. Cutting left. 50.

Accelerates. 45. 40. 35. 30. 25. 20. 15. 10.

5. Touchdown. Oh, the big playability of Christian Watson. Wow. Wayne, all that was was like a 10-yard slam for Christian Watson. 63 yards. With that 4-3 speed, he's leaving the field.

Wow. How about that kid? Wayne Larrabee on Packers Radio. He's got six touchdowns now in the last three games. Had that breakout night. Was it, I can't remember if it was a primetime game or not, but had the breakout with the three touchdowns. And then, that would have been against the Dallas Cowboys. Was it the Cowboys game?

Okay. So not primetime, but certainly nationally televised. Then, when they had their Thursday night affair, he had two more touchdowns. And now, he catches one from Jordan Love. So yeah, it kept the Packers relevant there in the late stages. Ultimately, though, it was too much of the Philadelphia Eagles and not enough time. Here's Crossby. Crossby with an onside kick, and it is fought for, and I believe it is recovered by the Eagles. They're in Green Bay territory. Boy, that got through the first wave.

That was a little bit scary. Well, it never got to the 10-yard mark, so Green Bay couldn't touch the football because it never got to 10 yards. I like the use of the term flopped.

He flopped on it. The Eagles, I guess because of the Watson touchdown, it doesn't appear as though they were firmly in control of this game after that first quarter, but they definitely were. And it's because of the run game. 363 rushing yards. 363 rushing yards. They had more than twice as many rushing yards than Jalen Hurts had passing yards. In fact, Jalen himself had 157 yards rushing and 153 yards passing.

What are you, Lamar Jackson? Anyway, so he had an incredible game, and so did Miles Sanders, who had the two touchdowns and 143 yards on the ground. And Miles immediately was talking about the offensive line following the game. They were able to pick up any old first down they wanted, really, because of the run game.

Even though the Packers knew it was coming, they could not stop it. We really don't know which way we're going to go each game. I just know with the type of players and the talent that we got on this offense, the game plan could go either way. We can take the air out, take the top off, or we can grind the ball out throughout the game. But that just shows that we're ready for anything. Our players, man, this is unbelievable offensive line.

Jack Stoll coming in and blocking his butt off. When you rush for that many yards, the receivers are doing their part as well. And so, a good team run offense. 4 for 5 in the red zone. They had 30 more plays offensively than did the Packers. So, the 7 point final spread doesn't really tell you the whole story. Jalen Hurts knows that they've got quite the 1-2 punch here. And so, that's what makes them good is that they can beat you in so many different ways as they move to 10-1.

Best record in the NFL still. For us as a football team, as an offense, it's like your favorite steakhouse. Your favorite restaurant. Five star bougie restaurant you like to go to. You have your steak of the day, your selection of the day, the chef's selection. I feel like for us, we can kind of do it all. Okay, the one word I never thought I would hear from Jalen Hurts post-game was bougie.

Bougie restaurant. But he does make great metaphors. He's got as many metaphors as I do.

I do love my metaphors and my analogies. As for the Green Bay Packers, well, they're still going the wrong way. For a brief moment there, the euphoria over coming back against the Dallas Cowboys and winning in overtime at Lambeau, it was fleeting. They're now down to 4-8 in their division. They're 3rd place in the North, so no more I've bleeping on you.

I've bleeping on you my whole life. They just got dominated. Minus 11 minutes with the football and well, that's one way to ensure that you aren't able to rally. And I just want you to hear the difference between Matt Leflore's post-game comments and Aaron Rodgers' post-game comments.

And I know they're two different personalities, but I'm struck by how different their assessments of the game. Extremely disappointed to come in here. What a great environment against a really good football team. Obviously the best record in all of ball and to come up short is really disappointing. But bottom line is, you know, you can't allow somebody to run for 353 yards against you and you can't turn the ball over in a game like this. I thought we had some opportunities in the first half and didn't capitalize on every opportunity. And you can't do that against a really good football team.

Proud of our offense, proud of Jordan. You know, we moved the football basically most of the night. Against a good defense, felt like we only had like 40 or 50 plays or something. And they had over 70.

So that was obviously a big difference. But we put up 33 points and battled against the number one seed. I think there's a lot to feel good about. Obviously defense is going to not feel great about some of those things. And obviously I turned the ball over twice. But we put ourselves in position.

To do what? See, I don't think they really put themselves in position. They had the lead early on.

But later in the game, if not for the Christian Watson 63 yarder, it's a two score blowout and it's not even close. So it's interesting. And again, partially a product of their personalities. That Matt Lafleur is extremely disappointed. This and that. We're going the wrong way. This is a morbid Monday. And Aaron says, well there's lots to feel good about.

Alright. Battled against the number one seed. They battled hard. That certainly sounds like moral victory territory to me. I could be wrong. Says he's really proud of Jordan and also says that he's not going to shut it down for the season. He anticipates being able to play next week. The NFC is wide open. You guys, it's wide open. Unless we're going to have three teams, three wildcard teams out of the NFC beast, which very well could happen. But there's plenty of opportunities here if a team that's sitting on four wins or five wins would go on a run and get it by 500.

Especially when the teams and the beast have to play each other still. The last five, how many weeks now? Six weeks left to go in the NFL season. What? There are six weeks to go in the NFL season?

How is that possible? It's the first time I've said it out loud. It's actually the first time I've thought about it. I was counting up to 12, but I wasn't counting down. What was that?

You know the NFL is crazy? Did you misfire in there? Q issue.

Oh, a Q issue. I wish I could blame the technology here in my studio, but I can't. When things go horribly wrong, it's just my fault.

It's a dark day. Well, can't quibble with that, Todd Bowles. On Twitter, ALawRadio, who should be most mortified and miserable and morbid on Monday?

We've given you a few candidates. Honestly, the Packers could go in this poll as well. The Broncos could live in the poll.

We could never take them out of the poll. And that was against the Panthers on Sunday. Also on our Facebook page. Thanks for hanging out with us.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. Like leagues and teams. Pause or rewind your local sports and news. And add shows to your queue to catch up later.

There's a lot to listen to, so get started and download the free Odyssey app today. Throughout the 60s and 70s, cops hunted down key figures of the Dixie Mafia, including its enigmatic ringleader, Kirksey Nix. I'm in a rush to making money.

I'm not in a rush to hurting people. 15 years into Kirksey's life sentence, the Dixie Mafia was practically folklore, but that would soon change. I'm Jed Lipinski. This is Gone South, a documentary podcast from C-13 Originals, a Cadence 13 studio. Season 2, the Dixie Mafia.

Available now on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. So my biggest fear is there's going to be sneaks in the toilet. We're all afraid of that one strange thing. I'm Larry Mullins, the host of a new short 10-minute podcast called Your Weirdest Fears. We unpack where these fears come from. A rat climbed into my toilet. And learn how to manage them.

Listen and subscribe to Your Weirdest Fears on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. And they have Jennings and Ayuk left. Mitchell to the side of Jimmy and the shotgun. Jimmy back. Jimmy time. Going to throw for the corner of the end zone.

Broken up. Caught by Jawan Jennings on the ricochet. Touchdown San Francisco.

And we got a new party starter this week. Jawan Jennings coming alive on third down and coming alive here on the tip. It was a gritty game. Proud of the guys today, just how they fought through all the adversity that was thrown at us.

I mean, it was all types of adversity. And we just kept going, man. I think that was a good win for us. Off the field. On the money.

And after hours. It's time to talk football with Amy Lawrence. Only one touchdown in the game between the Saints and the 49ers. But this is how San Francisco can beat you. They can, in fact, pitch a shutout with that defense. And it's exactly what they did against the visiting New Orleans Saints. First place on the line in the NFC West. So it's Jimmy to Jawan Jennings for five yards. They had a 10-0 lead at the break. They end up winning 13 zips. So this was a game only a mother could love.

I'm just teasing. If you love defense, you love Smash Mouth football, this was your kind of game. A pair of fumbles really derailed the New Orleans attack. Any hopes that they had of coming back were lost when Alvin Kamara coughed up the football on the goal line early in the fourth quarter.

You know, the numbers weren't great for anyone really. The Saints actually played some pretty tough D as well. San Francisco only managed 96 yards rushing. Christian McCaffrey himself only had 49 total yards.

And there was some talk that he had tweaked an ankle. But a win is a win. And this is the comfort zone for the Niners. They're always going to be good. And they gave us a lot of different looks and different fronts.

And obviously they have a lot of really good players as well. So we knew it was going to be tough. But obviously when your defense plays like that, it makes it better to be able to pull those ones out. We ended up playing well enough to get that win.

And all that really matters is the dub. I know that we're going to continue to figure stuff out. Short week was a little difficult for us.

Not a lot of sleep. But get a full week ahead of us playing the Dolphins. We'll be locked and loaded.

Ooh, that is a game on the horizon that I can get excited about. Because the Miami defense has also played really well but can hurt you just like the Eagles in so many ways. And so that's a clash of the Titans to be sure. So the Niners get this shutout. They move to 7-4 in the NFC West. And they do it at the expense of the Saints who are kind of going the wrong way.

Annie Dalton kind of pointed to a couple of good things that happened with the team. But they were over in the red zone and really didn't have that many opportunities. So that's a team that in the NFC South is still alive of course. NFC South is the absolute worst division in football. And while the NFC West is not as good or as competitive as what people expected based on last year. It certainly is a division in which it's competitive and in which you've got teams that will beat each other up. And for the Seahawks to have kept the lead in the West as long as they did I thought was really impressive. But you've got two teams in that division who are so disappointing this season.

Right? You've got the Cardinals who we'll talk about. They're just a disaster. And really there's no reason why they would be unless we're talking about leadership. Unless we're talking about personnel.

Unless we're talking about human beings not being on the same page. Which is what it looks like. It doesn't resemble team football in any way, shape, or form. And that was exacerbated on Sunday. Then you've also got the Rams. The Rams, they've got so many players lost to injury. Without their starting quarterback now.

So Bryce Perkins makes his first career NFL star in Kansas City. Those two teams, I don't want to say they're lost causes this season. But it would take major miracles for either the Rams or the Cardinals to get off the mat and start to make some noise. The Seahawks are still right in the thick of things. And so this has become a bit of a two horse race between the Niners and the Seahawks. Who had the Raiders in town on Sunday.

This was a really good game too if you love the offense and the fireworks. I told you that Sunday Night Football produced 47 points in the first half. Packers and Eagles combined for 47 points.

Well in the first half of the Raiders and Seahawks, 44 total points. The Raiders are awake. Oh, I would say the Raiders are woke. Except that really carries a whole different connotation in our culture.

So don't say anything like that. So the Raiders were awake. And actually Josh Jacobs was able to run anywhere, anytime, do anything he wanted with the football on Sunday. But the Seahawks were game. They've got a physical tough front.

And Kenneth Walker, their rookie running back, has been a great revelation for them. So in the fourth quarter, this one going down to the wire as the Raiders are trailing Seattle. It is third down and goal. End zone to our right. Ball resting just inside the six. Kars and the shotgun Abdullah to his right. Call the motion man, set a slot left.

Derek takes the snap. Back to pass. Looking right.

Pressure. Luffs. Far corner of the end zone. Open receiver. Touchdown Foster Morrow. Touchdown Raiders. Back right corner of the end zone. He ran under it to grab it from six yards out. And now the Raiders with a chance to tie the game here in Seattle.

I don't know that we can call them heavyweight fighters, but they did exchange blows in the fourth quarter. So Geno Smith has a touchdown pass, but then Derek Carr and the Raiders are able to answer. Jason Horowitz on Raiders radio. That sends us into overtime. And typical of the Raiders, they don't always take advantage of the first opportunity.

Why would they do that? So Daniel Carlson misses a field goal on that first possession. But get this, not something we've said a lot this season. The Raiders defense forces a three and out. And gives the ball right back to Derek Carr, who gives it to another guy. Down to five on the play clock. Gets the snap.

Hands off to Jacobs. Stutters to the right. Burst through the hole. 20. 25-30. He's off to the races here in Seattle.

Nobody's going to catch him. 25-20. Ten. Ballgame. Bye bye Josh. 86 yards in overtime to walk it off for a second straight week. Touchdown Raiders. Victory, Las Vegas. I have nothing to say.

Oh, it's just an ISO lead. It's a beautiful run. I'm running out of superlatives. You know, he, you know, over 300 total yards in the game. And, you know, he wasn't, you know, didn't feel perfect, you know. But, you know, he just, I think toughness. He's a football player.

I mean, that's probably the greatest compliment I could give him. And, you know, he comes up big with, you know, big, he had a couple of big first downs on third and short that like, I'm not sure everybody in the league gets those, you know, but he did. And, you know, of course, you know, makes the big play at the end.

But I thought he was tremendous throughout. Gave us a lot of hard yards in a running game. Caught the ball well out of the backfield. Makes some big plays with his hands.

And, but that's JJ. Gaudy numbers for JJ. Josh Jacobs, as you hear from Josh McDaniels. Seriously, these are the types of numbers that set franchise records, which they did 303 yards from scrimmage. And that includes the 86-yard walk-off TD in overtime with Jason Horowitz on Raiders radio. He ends up with 229 yards rushing, which is also a franchise record.

A couple of touchdowns. So this was the Josh Jacobs game, if you will. And the Raiders have back-to-back wins. But Pete Carroll really sold it for us.

There's no way we could leave the Seattle Seahawks out of our mortification Monday poll after we hear his voice and see his body language. That's a terribly frustrating game for us. We had our chances to win a football game.

I mean, they're obvious and so clear that you all know them. But to give them the opportunity to stay in there and hang in there, those guys kept hanging. As a young team, we've got to learn to, you know, be able to go out there and win those games.

That's our next step in the evolution. As a really young team, you know, we've got to understand the moment, capture the moments, and take advantage. Seahawks fall to six and five and second place in the NFC West. So, will the Niners feel comfortable operating as the front-runner? Not every team is. Some teams are just built to chase as opposed to being chased. The Niners don't have a lot of experience on that locker room or in that locker room on that field. And they certainly have a ton of experience with their leadership. And they've been in these types of games before. They are comfortable, intense pressure-backed situations because they don't generally blow teams out. That's not who the Niners are. And so, if this is how it goes the rest of the year, where it's the Niners and Seahawks and they're fighting back and forth, advantage San Francisco. Get out of here.

I mean, I'm trying to make a serious point here. Pete Carroll has to interject. Okay, now here's what we still have to come.

I've saved the best for last. I can't even say that with a straight face. Sam Darnold returns for the Carolina Panthers. But boy, they look like offensive juggernauts against their opponent on Sunday. The Browns give Jacoby Brissett quite the send-off.

Or wherever you get your podcasts from. on it. Panthers are saying touchdown. So he fumbled it, and then when he gets on it, he recovered it and then rolls into the end zone. I think that might be a touchdown.

Hits, misses, and messes. Time to talk football after hours with Amy Lawrence. Yes, in fact, that is how Sam Darnold rolls. It was a touchdown. He's back starting for the Carolina Panthers. And he engineers a seven-minute touchdown drive in the first quarter. DJ Moore on the receiving end.

So welcome back, Sam. And then another six-minute drive early in the third quarter for the Panthers, in which Darnold recovers his own fumble in the end zone for a touchdown. Hey, when you're the Panthers and wins are hard to come by, I bet the Broncos would take a ball recovered in their own end zone for a touchdown. Two field goals in the fourth quarter.

Ultimately, though, really no contest. Lopsided Panthers victory over the Broncos. And get this, even though the Panthers started in the basement, the cesspool, rock bottom, they fired their coach. How many different quarterbacks have they used?

Three. They would have used four by now if Matt Corral wasn't injured. They started three different QBs in three weeks, but they have a better record than Denver.

The call on Carolina Panthers radio. And we're going to spotlight the Broncos and this mess with Russell Wilson. He did have his 300th career touchdown pass yesterday, but he said enough is enough. Their issues go beyond him, but the problem is their wagon is hitched to his star regardless. Not only did they trade away a ton of capital, both draft and personnel, to get him, but then without seeing him on the field for even one real game that counted, they gave him a massive contract.

So now they're stuck. Maybe it gets better, but it hasn't to this point in year number one. So the Broncos deserve a little more attention. But for the purposes of this last segment of the show, Carolina, the defense was great. Three sacks, a couple of takeaways. Sam Darnold was solid. The team itself at 185 yards rushing.

The Panthers dominated time of possession. And so this was all they could have asked for in returning Darnold, but also trying to find some traction toward the end of the season. I felt great to be able to get that win. I think just the preparation that went into it this whole week. I had a ton of guys going down with different sicknesses, and guys were battling this week trying to prepare for this game. It showed out there. It showed our resilience and defense, special teams, offense, all three phases. It was huge to come up with this win. When given the opportunity to drop back in the pocket, he was 11 for 19 for 164. We took our shots down the field, which I felt like we could do today, and he did a great job connecting with DJ on that deep one. It just confirms the kind of character that we have in that locker room.

Guys that care about one another, guys that care about their craft, and trying to perfect and do their job to the fullest. So in the NFC South, which is, and I'm not exaggerating here, it's the worst division in football. There are no teams above 500, which means they're all still alive. It would be crazy if the Panthers were able to rally, but they're only a game and a half back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because the Buccaneers took another massive step backwards in their game on Sunday at Cleveland. I will say this for the Browns. Their game, they play hard for Jacoby Brissett, and I know this was his last game starting barring an injury to Deshaun Watson, but boy, did he save his best for last.

Two to the right, from the 12, back to pass. Here's Brissett, looking, firing, end zone. Oh, what a catch by Iyoko! Touchdown! What a catch by the Chief! A touchdown! He put it up where only the Chief could get it, and he went up with one hand, only his left hand with the defender draped on him, and sterileed it in. What a catch by the Chief when you needed it the most!

Oh my goodness, Jim! It was a left-handed, one-handed grab by Njoku, under duress in the back of the end zone with time running out, from Jacoby, delivered on the money, and that is how the Browns are able to tie the game against the Bucs in the final minute. But a moment that I think is worth pointing out, Miles Garrett has a sack of Tom Brady on third down that gave the ball back to Cleveland with two minutes, just over two minutes to go. Garrett was a monster. He was all over the place in the late stages of this game, ultimately finished with a sack and a half and a few quarterback hits, but he was a menace to society, to the society that the Bucs operate in. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio.

Into overtime they go. Another moment that will always stand out to me is a bit of redemption for one Amari Cooper, because on fourth down in the fourth quarter, he dropped a ball that hit him in the chest. Jacoby's pass was on the money.

You never see Amari Cooper drop a ball like that, but he did, and so there they were going to him in overtime, and it's not going to happen twice. All right, Hunt in the backfield with Brissett. Three receivers right. Third down and three from the Buccaneer, 48-yard line. Motion by Cooper, tighter to the line. Brissett's got the snap.

He's back, settles, looks, throws. He's got Cooper wide open. He called it, 20, 15, 10, 5, 3-yard line. It's first and goal.

It's first and goal at the 3-yard line. Amari Cooper. He was working on Carlton Davis, gave him a double move on the outside. Once that play kind of broke down, he just took it vertically up the field, and Davis slipped and fell down. Cooper ran right through him, wide open, and Brissett delivered the ball, and now the Browns at the 3, and the question is, do you do anything other than kneel? Do you try to run it in right now with Nick Chubb? The Browns are going to try to run it in right here behind James Hudson.

That's right. Hudson the fullback, motion down the line by Harrison Bryant. Brissett underneath center, second and goal.

Tampa Bay was offside. They give the ball to Chubb. He's driving for the goal line. He is, he's in!

He's in! Touchdown, Nick Chubb, and the Browns are winners! So Jacoby Brissett, the Cleveland Browns, they go out on a high note, and actually, they're still alive, too, if you think about the AFC North and the playoff hopes.

Yes, Deshaun Watson takes over in Week 13, but I'm happy for Jacoby. He gave it everything he had. He was professional. He knew the stakes coming in, and yet he took care of his business every single week, and who knows, he may be called on, but either way, they get an overtime win against Tampa Bay as his last stand, quote, unquote. I mean, it's in no disrespect, but in the words of Tom Brady, that was awesome.

That was awesome. I love that from Jacoby, and he finishes with a smile, right? He's not bitter.

He's not upset, but he knew this was going to happen more than likely, and yet he put his best out there on the field and left his best out there on the field. Nick Chubb, he's typical Nick, and this Browns win was huge for them in overtime. Jim Donovan and company on Browns Radio. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio. Just quickly, in the AFC North, the Bengals and the Ravens are tied now at 7-4 because the Ravens lost to the Jaguars, but the Bengals got the victory in Nashville. Browns at 4-7, and the Steelers coming up tonight against the Colts.

Oh, that's going to be great. I'm going to need about 50 points from Nadja Harris, if that's okay. Alright, the football weekend started with USA Soccer. It did, it did. In Qatar against England, we are talking the second most watched soccer game of all time in the United States, and you may not think by looking at the score, a scoreless draw, in fact there was no score, a scoreless draw that this was anything worth paying attention to, but I'm telling you it was tense, it was dramatic, and I loved every minute of it. This was great redemption for guys like Walker Zimmerman, and even for Matt Turner who played well in their draw with whales, but obviously gave up the penalty kick late. Fox Sports with the call there.

John Strong is the play-by-play guy. Yeah, Christian Pulisic puts a ball off the crossbar. Oh, it rattled the crossbar.

It really rattled the entire cage. This was the biggest game in U.S. World Cup history going back to the 2014 knockout stage, but because it's England, it's epic proportions, right? And I'm not kidding, second most watched men's soccer game ever in the U.S., 20 million viewers. You guys can make fun of soccer, those of you who think it's not worth your time, and I understand it, it's not for everyone, but this is Team USA, and more people watch this soccer game on Friday afternoon or 11 o'clock a.m. Pacific time than watch the majority of the NFL games on Sunday. Not all of them, but the majority of them, and it was a game that favored England early on, but at the same time, it was one in which you really saw the personality and the hard work of Christian Pulisic and the Americans. I felt like we were a team out there who showed a lot of confidence and battled toe-to-toe with a very solid team, so we did that for everyone back home watching. I hope we made a lot of people proud, but the job's not even close to done, so we got a lot of work left to do.

And against England, it was a thing of beauty, so I can't wait until Tuesday. Tonight, though, Monday Night Football, and then we're back after our CBS Sports Radio. Boom!
