Hey, it's Kenny Mayne. I'm the host of Hey Mayne, the Kenny Mayne Talks to Famous People podcast. Season one's out there in the universe. You can go back in time, find anybody you want, as long as I interview them.

Season two is coming up Thursday, October 13th. We've got Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick together again. Sue Bird is involved. Rex Chapman, Dan Lebatard, Katie Nolan, Alison Becker. Sorry for all the others I interviewed who I left out. Oh yeah, Soledad O'Brien.

She was good. Thanks for listening this Truth Network Podcast. Get it on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. Coming up this hour, the AFC North. Roll the dice, baby.

Just roll the dice. Although really impressed that the Ravens managed to give an opponent a taste of what they've been dealing with over the last couple of months. And we also are seeing the Bengals offense break out like we did at the end of last season in a run that propelled them all the way to the Super Bowl. Thanks for hanging out with us.

We're halfway through the show. Surprisingly calm, even though on Sundays in October, all hell breaks loose. And really, it was that way all weekend. I hope that you enjoyed your weekend.

I know in my corner of the world, it was absolutely gorgeous weather and it was so great to have family. I was telling producer Jay, never would invite the family to come in October because that's generally a little more stress than it's worth trying to get the place clean. And they showed up early afternoon on Friday, so I had only slept a few hours and was still reeling from last week and was trying to get the house clean. In fact, as my brother and sister-in-law pulled into the driveway, I was still sweeping my living room and dust mopping my hardwood floors. My sister-in-law says, what are you doing?

So my door was open and my screen, I could see them and they could see me through the screen. She said, what are you doing? I said, I'm dust mopping. Why are you dust mopping? I said, because the forest are here. Because you guys are coming. You'll be here soon.

Anyway, so I literally was cleaning right up until the second they walked into the house and I decided, okay, I'm putting the dust mop away. Anyway, we had fun at a pumpkin patch on Friday. We did apple cider doughnuts and producer Jay. We got the pumpkin.

But see, here's the thing. The pumpkin is so purdy. We need to share that photo, don't we? The pumpkin is sitting on my stoop. It's so purdy that I don't want to carve it.

Is that bad? I'm already attached to my perfect pumpkin. I picked out this gorgeous pumpkin. It's just over 17 pounds. Jay thinks he's like some kind of savant because he guessed that it was 17 pounds. I think he, I don't, I don't, anyway. I nailed it.

Whatever. So I now have the pumpkin for our pumpkin carving that will take place within the next 48 hours. But I don't want to because the pumpkin's too pretty. I will say when you did send me that picture and then you said that was ours. It's our baby pumpkin. I thought it looked really good in that spot that it is now in front of your house. Can we just not carve it and just draw on it instead?

We could like stencil it up, I guess. Except that Jay already procured, such a tough word, procured his pumpkin carving tools. And yours. Our supplies are ready to go. I don't want any. Oh, you got them.

They're here, ready or not. I didn't ask for, I asked Jay, is this my Christmas present? He said, no, your Halloween present. Who does presents for Halloween? We do now.

Oh, we do? Well, I don't want to sacrifice my pumpkin. I hate to admit it too, because now we're like in a hole, but I do have to say that that pumpkin looks really good. Should I get a different pumpkin and you'll never know the difference?

I probably wouldn't know the difference. I would guess the weight of it again. Such a pretty, I just rolled my eyes at Jay, such a, he thinks he's so smart, such a pretty pumpkin. It's just sitting on my front step and it got a nice little bath with the rain on Sunday evening. And it's such a shiny orange color and I don't want to carve it. I don't want to cut it. I don't want to gut it.

It's so, it's so happy. I know that our initial first cut, taking the top off and like going to gut it out, it's going to be like. Okay, you're not touching my pumpkin. I mean, that's what's going to have to happen to it. No, we're getting a different pumpkin. I'm already attached to this one.

You're not touching it. Anyway, I did pick out the pumpkin at a pumpkin patch on Friday. We had apple cider donuts and hot apple cider and it was such a nice afternoon and evening. And then my brother and sister in law and I got started watching this brand new show. We started binging this new show called Alaska Daily with Hillary Swank. If you are into mysteries and good writing, I highly recommend it.

Also, she's a great actress. And then Saturday we went hiking. So it was a good weekend. Again, not something I would have chosen in October, but since the family invaded, what am I going to do?

It was a really enjoyable weekend because it got me away from the stress of work and the stress of October. And even though I didn't know that, it was exactly what I needed. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Check out Twitter. So my Twitter is A Law Radio and there you will find photos from the weekend, including, oh my gosh, it's a llama. He's got a bunch of curly hair. It's got to be the cutest llama I've ever seen. And he was just hanging out, maxing, relaxing. He was chillaxing. So a llama.

And then this sign that's so completely corny, but I love it. Hello, bootiful. So you did confirm that that was a llama? Yes, it's a llama. I wasn't sure, maybe it was an alpaca.

How come you don't know your llamas? It looked like an alpaca. It was an alpaca, actually. Oh, was it?

I've got to take that back. Yes, I said llama, but it wasn't a llama. It was an alpaca. So here I'll retweet just so you can see the alpaca. He's so super cute. He's the same color as Penny.

So retweeting the alpaca. And he was just, his hair, so curly. He's got curly hair.

Just, it's fantastic. It's like the guy in Napoleon Dynamite. What was his name? What's his name? The llama, or? No. Because there's a llama in Napoleon Dynamite named Tina.

Is there really? Oh, no, not the llama. The guy with the red hair. What's his name?

That sticks out all over the place? The red hair? I don't know his name. The actor. Oh, the real actor.

John Heater. Okay, him. It looks like his hair. Do you disagree? No, no, I definitely, that was a gorgeous looking llama. Or alpaca, excuse me.

Alpaca, stop it. I corrected myself. Now you're perpetuating the mistake. And also there are, there were gigantic pumpkins.

I'm not kidding you. There were pumpkins over 50 pounds. I couldn't, I decided we were not getting a pumpkin of 50 pounds. My poor brother was carrying the pumpkin around, so I didn't want to ask him to. Plus you had to pay 75 cents per pound.

I was not paying that much for a pumpkin. Yeah. And then the little sign that says, hey, bootyful.

I don't know why that's so funny, but it is. So anyway, check out the photos from the weekend. Gorgeous fall colors.

You know me, I'm a shill for orange and yellows. And then we've also got our Stranger Things question. This could be a weekly feature as well in the NFL.

So find our Stranger Things question. And miserable and mortified on Monday. The poll is up as, like last week, we gave you a baseball team as well because there's no way to avoid the misery around the New York Yankees. You'll hear from them as the Astros not just eliminate them on the way to a fourth World Series in six seasons, but sweep them. I thought the Astros would win this series.

I just didn't think sweep was on the table, but whoa, they got steamrolled. So Astros and Phillies it is in the fall classic, but they don't start till Friday. So I think we can take a couple of days and talk football. That's on you, baseball.

Dumb. You go from Sunday to Friday without any more baseball. It's a long time for people to forget all about you. Anyway, we also have all kinds of other fun goodies from football over the course of my Sunday because I was busy tweeting. That's how I remember things. That's how I remember my observations and sometimes my feelings in the moment as I am watching football.

Tweeting helps me to remember. Like the Phillies being the last team to punch their ticket to the playoffs. Third NL wildcard. Now they get into the World Series for the first time since 2009 clinching at home. So we'll get back to the AL and NL pennants, but we want to continue on our football journey here on After Hours with Amy Lawrence. We're live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.

Do you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family? Rocket can. Twitter or Facebook? Jay, a poll up on Facebook.

All right, so poll has now been posted on Facebook as well. And there will be pictures before I die. I promise. How about that?

Before I kick the bucket, there will be pictures on Facebook as well. I promised you that we would talk about Dak's return. So Tua back on the field.

Can he pick it? Though he didn't miss last week but missed the second half and he was also playing for the Steelers on Sunday night. And then we did see Dak Prescott returning after he sustained that thumb injury in week number one.

A Cooper rush. He managed the game well. Allowed the Dallas Cowboys defense and run game to do its work until Dak could return.

It was a four game win streak without Dak Prescott. But obviously he is the star. He's the highly paid quarterback. He's the alpha male. He's the leader of that team. No doubt.

They respond to him and he's the undisputed leader. Cowboys hosting the Lions and it's a pretty slow start for the offense. I hope there wasn't anybody out there who right away was thinking, oh, we need Cooper rush. Stop it. Slow start for the Dallas offense with only a field goal in the first half.

All right. But here is the tried and true formula for the Cowboys. Defense to offense. Defense to offense. That's what happens. The defense sparks the offense, gives it extra opportunities and the Cowboys are able to springboard from there.

It makes the offensive job a heck of a lot easier when you've got your defense handing you the ball and shorter fields to work with. Back goes Goff. He's flushed out here. Sam Williams.

Boom. Sam Williams picked it up. He took it away from him. And Williams rumbles down to the ten. Then he fumbled.

But it was recovered by Dorrance Armstrong. He just strips the ball. I mean, he just takes it right out of Goff's hands. It's truly a sack strip fumble. Second down and goal at the one and a half.

Play action fake. Prescott's going to throw it in the end zone to Peyton Henderson on National Tight End Day for his first professional touchdown. Brad Sham and company on Cowboys Radio. Five takeaways by the Dallas defense.

That's just one of them. Sam Williams with the strip sack and the recovery. The rookie with a humongous play against Jared Goff. And it leads to the TD pass by Dak, his first of the season.

Because remember, when they were playing the Bucks in the opener, they didn't have a touchdown. So this is Dak's first touchdown pass of the season. But there were other humongous plays by the D. In the third quarter, Trayvon digs. Remember, he led the NFL interceptions last year. He gets a pick. And Dallas turns around and goes 82 yards the other direction. Zeke into the end zone.

Is that not the formula for the Cowboys? Takeaways run the ball. Takeaways score points by running the ball.

In the fourth quarter, it was Jordan Lewis. He gets the interception off Goff and right away, Cowboys go the other direction. Zeke gets back into the end zone. 21 points off turnovers for the Cowboys in this game. Dak, 19 of 25. He has over 200 yards passing.

Ultimately, the Cowboys get the win. Great. I felt comfortable with everything. Thumb definitely didn't bother me.

Wasn't a thought in my head. Felt like after a few throws, yeah, I was back into it. And that drive before halftime, I felt like I made a few that just said, hey, we're good to go. Don't think about anything again.

Yeah, so I felt fine. But this is about the team. This is a great team win. This is what I've been watching for the last five weeks. This defense, the special teams, and just us playing complementary football.

And it was just great to be back and be a part of it. So for Dak to get this cushion with the defense, he won't always need it, but it's big. It's big for them because he's just integrating himself back into the offense.

Glad to hear there's no pain with the thumb. He also raved about the guys on the other side of the ball. Five sacks of Jared Goff mentioned the takeaways as well. That type of margin, that buffer, if you will, provided by the defense, not to mention, as I say, the opportunity silved up on a silver platter.

I mean, it could work. The takeaways and the sacks and just the squashing of the Lions offense, which not that long ago led the NFL in points per game. This is what Micah Parsons and the defense is all about. Never giving up the goal line, creating that turnover, just dominating the second half. It obviously definitely shows glimpses. It shows what we're capable of, where we're heading. And that's a great way to get things back on track.

It's really part of the fabric. I feel like we've created last year and our defense really just was tremendous here in the second half. So the ball extraction was obviously a huge factor in the game. I mean, really at halftime, you just look at the statistics and the way the game was going. It was an evenly played game. The big play opportunities were pretty equally distributed and executed.

But the big plays were huge for us in the second half. And so the Cowboys pick up where they left off as Dak returns. Meanwhile, the Lions fall to now 1-5. And so much promise coming into the season. I felt the same way, wanting the Lions to win, seeing that personality, knowing they drafted well with Aiden Hutchinson.

He actually did have a sack on Sunday. But for Dean Campbell, man, it's got to feel like this is the longest two months since hard knocks. It doesn't matter who we have or what we're doing or who we're playing. I mean, the bottom line is you got to find a way to win. And I really felt like we were on track to do that. And then we made those couple of mistakes that killed us, the turnovers.

And against an opponent this good, it's good luck. I'm frustrated from losing just like I was last year, just like I was anytime I lost, just like I was at New Orleans when we lost the game. And you don't like to lose games. But I'm not down and I'm not losing confidence. I'm not going to go hide in the corner. That's not what I'm about.

He's not going to go hide in a corner because that's not what he's about. But I thought it was odd to hear Dan Campbell say when it's an opponent this good, good luck. When it's this kind of an opponent, good luck. What does that mean? Against an opponent this good, it's good luck.

What? It better not just be good luck. Luck is not a thing that you can rely on to help you win games. Welcome back, Dak. I'm happy for him, happy for the Cowboys that they're winning without having to rely solely on their quarterback. And I just love we can put this on the list of stranger things from the NFL through seven weeks. I just love that we're talking about the NFC East turning into a beast right before our eyes.

The babies are growing up. The Eagles are 6-0 off this weekend. Giants 6-1, we're going to get to them coming up. The Cowboys now 5-2. The commanders even won back to back games actually, but won on Thursday. Wait, Thursday? No, they beat the Packers on Sunday. Sorry, I was thinking a week ago when they beat Arizona.

No, don't quote me on that. Washington, Chicago? Was it Chicago? It was just a really terrible matchup on paper.

That's what I remember. So the Washington commanders got a victory over the Packers on Sunday. So we'll talk Giants.

We'll talk commanders. The worst record in that division is 3-4. Have you seen the rest of the NFC? It's amazing. The East turning into a beast. Whoever it is, line them up.

No longer the least. Find me on Twitter. ALawRadio will silve it up on a server platter. If you're just tuning into this show for the first time ever, I make up words and I make up phrases. It's just, it comes naturally. It's my special gift.

Who feels the most miserable and mortified on this Monday? Stranger Things. Hashtag Stranger Things. I've never actually seen the show, but it's one of Jay's favorites.

So it makes me feel like I am hip or something. On our Facebook page too, After Hours with Amy Lawrence. If you're waking up on your Monday, ouch. But yay, you're here. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio.

Offset high right. Jones keeps it. Pushes into the line. No signal yet. No signal yet.

No signal yet. Touchdown Giants. And with five twenty two to go in the ball game, the Giants have the lead on a Daniel Jones one yard run. Third and ten. Seventeen yard line. Seven seconds to go. Lawrence in a shotgun.

Empty set again. Takes the snap. Back to throw. Steps up. Fires it to the end zone. It's caught at the one yard line.

It's time to pull on the pads and hit somebody. On After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. You want to talk about Stranger Things. This Giants-Jaguars game was full of Stranger Things, and it was actually nationally televised, or many places it was the game to watch in the early window. My mom and her husband only had this game on in the early window, Giants and Jaguars in Houston. And so he was sending me texts about the Giants and about the finish to Giants and Jaguars, and it was a doozy. It made a lot of both Giants and Jags fans turn old quickly with extra gray hair.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. So that the Giants have turned into the Cardiac Kids. You should start to get used to this if you're a Giants fan. They lead the NFL in fourth quarter comebacks.

All right, let me say that again. The Giants lead the NFL in fourth quarter comebacks. What a difference. The leadership, the convictions of Brian Dabel. What a difference with strong leadership. With a quarterback who has a coach who believes in him. Not to mention a healthy Saquon Barkley who changes everything.

And they're starting to get production from some of their younger guys as well, specifically on the defensive side of the ball. So I think there's this idea that the Eagles are for real, but the Giants are not. That this is a house of cards. That's false.

It's not the case. Four fourth quarter comebacks against teams like the Packers in London. That was in London, right? Now the Jaguars in Jacksonville where I'll swear that there were more Giants fans than there were Jaguars fans. Do Jaguars have fans? I'm sure they do. I'm sure they do. That was me.

Sorry. So early on, you had this mixed bag, which always seems to happen with the Giants opponents. And I'd like to think that they're part of it. But Travis Etienne, you take the good, you take the bad. He has a touchdown, but then he has a fumble in the first half. That leads to a New York Giants field goal.

So see, there's this idea still that the Giants are not quite capitalizing on all of their opportunities. Trevor Lawrence has a touchdown to start the third quarter. And then Jacksonville is able to keep the Giants out of the end zone on a fourth and two from the three yard line.

Oh man, Daniel Jones was mad. So again, you get the good, but you get the bad. Sometimes with the Giants, it's a case of extremes. But what they're doing that they haven't done in the past is finding ways to win. And so it's another huge fourth quarter for these Giants on the road. A 79 yard touchdown drive. And what jumped out to me is that of the 10 snaps on this drive in the fourth quarter, the go ahead drive, the Daniel Jones touchdown run being the capper that put them in front, nine of the 10 plays were running plays. They were handing off, not just to Saquon, but to Matt Breida. They also had a couple of Daniel Jones runs in there. He was over a hundred yards rushing. I don't love that formula for a quarterback, but Daniel was over a hundred yards rushing and did have the touchdown that ultimately put them up 20 to 17. Bob Papa with the calls on Giants radio.

So here's where it gets nutso. The Giants tack on another field goal and there's a minute and four seconds left for Jacksonville. Producer J, how long do you estimate that minute and four seconds of game time took out of your life? Minimum three years.

Okay. I meant like of your actual Sunday afternoon, how long did it take? Probably about like a good 10 minutes.

I didn't say off your life, I said of your life. How much time did it take? Probably a good 10 minutes, like actually. I paused it, went outside, walked around the block with my extremely so dog cause I wanted to get Penny out before the second round of game started.

I come back and they're still playing. I mean, that's how long that last minute and four seconds took. It could have been more than 10 minutes.

It was up there. So a minute and four seconds left and it seemed like every time the Giants had snuffed out this last Jacksonville chance, they would pick up penalties. And then can we hear this call again?

Just it's crazy. Trevor Lawrence has got the Jaguars inside the red zone. They're running out of time. They only have a handful of seconds left on the clock. Third and 10, 17 yard line. Seven seconds to go. Lawrence in a shotgun, empty set again.

Takes the snap, back to throw, steps up, fires it to the end zone. Hey, it's Kenny Maine. I'm the host of Hey Maine. The Kenny Maine Talks to Famous People podcast. Season one's out there in the universe. You can go back in time, find anybody you want as long as I interviewed them.

Very normal. And the claims gonna run out. The Giants stuck him at the one yard line. Holy cow. Christian Kirk made the catch at the one and then the Giants rallied to the ball and the ball game is over.

Bob Papa and Carl Banks, former Giant, they're on their radio network. So yeah, Christian Kirk catches that ball in the one yard line. It seemed as though his momentum would carry him into the end zone. Instead, he was stood up by the Giants who were ready.

Ready for that moment and rose to the occasion. So New York keeps him out of the end zone. Over 235 yards rushing for the Giants. They were plus nine minutes in time of possession. These are all ball control elements. Control the ball, control the game. Control the ball, you win the game. Jacksonville, meanwhile, this is kind of rough, but still a team that's learning and building a winning culture with Doug Peterson. 13 penalty flags and 81 yards.

So they shot themselves in the foot. They're one step forward, two steps back, but it does not take away from what the Giants did and the way that they had yet another fourth quarter comeback on the road. I'm never really happy, ever.

Oh dear. You know, it's always on to the next week. I'm glad we won, but you know, there's, like I say every week, there's certain things to clean up and this week's no exception. There's a lot of points in the game, a lot of plays that we would like to have back to clean up and hopefully make a couple more plays so we're not in that situation, but you know, credit to Jacksonville, they're a good team, good defense, and they played well today. Well, I give credit to the players. You know, they're the ones that knocked the ball out and stopped them at the one yard line, fought for 60 minutes. Credit always goes to the players.

I think they're competing. Again, we just, you know, we can do a little bit better than we did today. You hear first Brian Dayball, then his quarterback, Daniel Jones, who's starting to sound more like him, and then Brian Dayball again on the six and one Giants. Meanwhile, for Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars, that's now four losses in a row, though he was over 300 yards. Beyond that, no turnovers for Trevor Lawrence.

To me, that's a huge deal. I know they didn't win. They showed a lack of discipline, but for him to not turn the ball over, that's always a positive. That's the way this league is. Most games come down to the very end, so that's how it is, and you got to find, like we've been saying, you got to find ways to win and just find ways to make those plays that decide the game. We're not making enough of those plays right now. I mean, we're that close, and that's what's frustrating for us too as players. I appreciate what Trevor is saying, and I still believe he's going to be a great quarterback.

They continue to put pieces around him. They've got the right leadership. I do think the Jaguars have made major strides. That's fairly obvious, but in the NFL, you've got to find ways to win. That line, figuring it out in the moment, adjusting, making those adjustments on the fly, which a lot of times comes down to coaching, execution.

It comes down to performance under pressure. When was the last time the Giants had that? It's been a while, and it's been, but what, four coaching changes, multiple quarterbacks? Well, not, I mean, Daniel Jones took over for Eli Manning, so it's more quarterbacks, coaches, and it's more about the multiple draft classes that they've had, not quite getting it right. But now it's coming together, and a lot of times it has to do with the voice.

The voice is in your head. So the Giants lead the NFL in fourth quarter comebacks, keeping pace with the Eagles. So same number of wins as the Eagles now, though Philadelphia is 6-0 and is off this weekend. Where does that lead? We talked about the Cowboys.

Where does that lead the commanders? Well, they're knocking on the door of 500 after a victory over the Packers. What, what? Stranger things in the NFL through seven weeks.

You can find me on Twitter, A Law Radio. I'd love to know what you think is stranger. The Jets' success, the Seahawks being alone in first place in the NFC West. We've also got your miserable Monday poll. Oh, there's always so much misery to go around.

I don't know if we'll include another baseball team, but back-to-back weeks with a baseball team in there as well. So check all those out on either Twitter or Facebook. There's much trolling being done on Facebook. Use your own Facebook page to troll.

Don't make me delete you for being nasty, nasty. You are listening to the After Hours Podcast. This is a third and eight at the nine. Empty backfield for Heineken, three wide receivers to the left. Snap to Heineken, he's looking that way. Now back to the middle of the field, to the back of the end zone. Antonio Gibson, toe tap, touchdown! Touchdown, Washington!

First and 10 at the 37, RPO again. Heineken gonna take a shot towards McLaurin, near sideline, it's caught! Touchdown! Touchdown, Washington! A 37-yard bomb from Heineken! We talk about him throwing those deep passes for any inaccuracy he's had. The game connects right there, and of course, it's so good to see one seven score.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. On Washington Commanders Radio, as the commanders host the Packers, Taylor Heineken is back starting for Washington and Ron Rivera because of an injury to Carson Wentz. So this is the third year in which he has logged at least one start, and because of the hapless Green Bay offense. Now the Packers did start out up 14 to three, but Devondre Campbell had a pick six off Taylor Heineke, so that was one half of their two touchdowns. Washington then is able to stifle the Packers in the second half. Meanwhile, the commanders take the lead with three straight scores to start the third quarter. So there's the touchdown to Scary Terry, Terry McLaurin, that goes 37 yards and a pair of field goals, and they're up 23 to 14.

Still plenty of drama to come though, right? Because it's the commanders. That's their middle name. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. I mentioned this with the Buccaneers, and Bucks and Panthers, sorry, Bucks and Packers right now have three and four records. A lot of drops. I've seen it with Tom Brady's receivers, including Mike Evans, which is weird. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, but also with some of Aaron Rodgers' new receivers, like Romeo Dobbs, and early in the fourth quarter, Packers go for it on fourth down. He drops the pass from Aaron Rodgers, and we've seen that with him a couple of times. Still just not in sync. However, the Packers do put together a 75-yard scoring drive late in the fourth quarter.

They refuse to go away without stirring the pot in D.C. First and 10 to the Washington 21. Dobbs to the left side, Tynion in the slot left, walked in to the right, snapped Aaron Rodgers, looks right, pumps left, rolls left, still looking, throws left side of the end zone, leaping grab ends up. It is a touchdown! Touchdown, Green Bay Packers! What an adjustment by Showtime in the left corner of the end zone to haul it in. Aaron Jones with a sensational grab over Cam Curl. Wayne Larrivee on Packers radio, so it's Aaron to Aaron. I still say the more Aaron Jones gets the ball, the better. And that pulls the Packers within two points.

But here's what I thought was the most brilliant stretch for Washington. I know Taylor Heineke was flinging the ball around. I know they had some strong offensive moments, but honestly, running three minutes off the clock in the late stages there before they punt the ball back to Green Bay, to me, that was humongous. I know they didn't score, they didn't tack on a field goal, which essentially would have made life a lot more difficult for Green Bay, but they do run three minutes off the clock before they give the ball back to Aaron Rodgers.

And so ultimately, there's so little time left, the Packers just have to try to make something out of nothing. Snap to Rodgers, that throws over the middle of the field to Tunyan, the clock is gonna run out. He is running at the 30, pitches back towards Amari Rodgers.

He tries to throw it backwards, it hits the ground. One of the offensive linemen catches it, who pitches it back towards another receiver, plays still continuing at the 40. 35-30, that is Samori Torre who throws to Aaron Rodgers who has the ball, throws the ball back towards the far side, let it out of bounds, it goes. What a wild end to the game here at FedEx Field, and Washington is gonna get away with one and move to three and four.

Once again, worst record in the NFC East, but not that bad if you look around the rest of the conference. The call on Washington commanders radio, it's a huge deal because they're keeping pace as much as they can. I mean, they put themselves in a hole, but keeping pace and building their confidence against teams like Green Bay. Huge game for Bryan Robinson. Remember the rookie coming back from being shot twice in the leg in September. 20 carries, 73 yards for him.

Another couple catches as well. 166 yards rushing for the team. And Taylor Heineke, though he did have an interception, once he found a rhythm starting for the first time in months, he was solid. He did what Ron Rivera needed him to do.

And this is kind of cool. If you know Taylor's story, you know that he and his dad shared a love for the Packers. His dad passed away at age 50 in 2011 with a heart attack. And so Taylor was thinking about him following this game. Started shedding a little bit of tears pregame, just knowing that he's up there drinking a beer and enjoying the show. So, you know, he's my guy, he's my best friend and he would be very proud of me right now. How long till you'll be drinking a beer and enjoying the show?

When I get out to the parking lot, so hopefully about 15 minutes. I know what type of competitor he is. That guy's a fighter. I love playing with him and playing for him. No matter what, I got his back, but that guy steps up at the times he needs to. Like he said, start off more rocky with the pick, but you know what, he came down through the dime to Terry on the sideline then and completed some passes when we needed to and got out of some stuff when he needed to. So he does a hell of a job for us bringing in the fresh legs and fresh energy. I just love the competitive nature that it brings every time. Charles Leno from the offensive line in front of Taylor Honeke mentioning the fresh energy.

I like it, it's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio. Of course, Ron Rivera thanking the run game that's old school football, right? And that's how the commanders, again, you control the ball, you control the game, but when you're also facing a very experienced veteran quarterback, the two-time reigning NFL MVP, you keep the ball away from him and it also contributes to your cause. When you can do that, you can chew the clock and you can possess the ball and it seems to be a pretty good formula. There's a lot of guys who touch the ball and that's one of the things I've talked about that in this style offense, if you can spread the ball around, if you can get the ball to the playmakers, it gives you a chance.

Execution of the details, small details. I mean, a lot of mental errors today. Now, we had some issues with guys getting hurt. Allen got banged up and Sammies was trying, we're trying to keep Sammy to 20, 25 plays, but yeah, we just made some silly execution mistakes. I don't think anybody thought we'd be in the spot that we're in right now and we're going to find out what we're made of in terms of just how we attack Monday, how we attack Tuesday, Wednesday, and every day in practice. Right now, what we're putting out there, what I'm calling, it ain't good enough. So yeah, it's a tough pill to swallow and we've got to be better. A three game skid, first real losing streak under Matt LaFleur as the head coach and you hear Aaron Rodgers talk about attention to details, but that's not it.

How about this? The Packers at three and four have to play the Buffalo Bills next week. It could go from bad to worse. I'm not worried about this squad. In fact, this might be the best thing for us. This week, you know, nobody's going to give us a chance. Going to Buffalo and some night football, the chance to get exposed, shoot, might be the best thing for us.

You would think it wouldn't take a four game losing skid and being smacked by Buffalo, but maybe Aaron is right. Did someone say run game? Yeah, there are a lot of brilliant running performances in the NFL on Sunday. That's really become the standard as some of the quarterbacks struggle.

Well, Josh Jacobs, he is a quarterback's best friend. Can they punch it in in the red zone? Texans defense down here has been great all year. This has been a Raiders struggle. Snap on first and goal, pitch to Jacobs, racing left, breaks a tackle, leans the ball forward, touchdown Raiders! Josh Jacobs wouldn't be denied again. This is the area of field where Hunter Renfro usually shines and they're going to double cover him.

He's in the slot to the right. Instead, it's a handoff into the belly of Jacobs. Bounces off a defender at the two and in the end zone.

Touchdown Raiders! First and 10 on the Texans, 15. Delayed handoff to Jacobs. Huge hole at the middle, 10.

Cuts rates at five. Touchdown, Jacobs! The hot trick in the end zone. His third rushing touchdown of the day. And the Raiders go up two scores.

30 to 20 with 7.06 to go in the ball game. The second half of this game between the Texans and the Raiders was all Josh Jacobs. Three rushing touchdowns, which is the second time he's done that in his career. 20 carries, 143 yards. And actually the Raiders turn on the Jets in the fourth quarter because they scored three times. So 21 point fourth quarter, not just Jacobs, but Daron Harmon has a pick six off Davis Mills to seal it. And this is the type of game that the Raiders want to play.

Right? They want to hit you hard. They want to hit you often. They want to keep coming. I think they kept playing hard and, you know, just focused on going out there and, you know, what can we do better the next series?

And thought they played a full 60 minute game. So good to win at home again. And, you know, excited to have an opportunity to go on the road and try to do the same. It's been a good day. It's been a complimentary football. First half, we kind of started off slow. We came out swinging and man, it's really good to get a win.

We need all 11. And, you know, if we can keep doing that, then hopefully we can play good football going forward, but it's not going to be easy. You know, we got a lot of tough teams coming up, especially this next week.

Well, that is for sure. They're all tough in the AFC, especially if you're in a division like the AFC West, where yes, the Chiefs continue to set the pace, but the Chargers are also above 500, the Sunday loss notwithstanding, and the Raiders are facing an uphill climb because of the hole they put themselves in to start. So next week, they're on the road at the Saints. So this is what the Chargers, not the Chargers, sorry, the Raiders did to begin. They lose three in a row at the Chargers against the Cardinals and then on the road at the Titans. Now that was actually the game that started the Titans' win streak, last year's number one seed in the AFC. They beat the Broncos in Vegas, but remember they lost by a point in Kansas City only to rally and beat the Texans.

So they're sitting at two and four and the road doesn't get a whole lot easier. Into New Orleans, then into Jacksonville. So they've got back-to-back road games coming up. Home for the Colts and then on the road at Denver. So if you look at the Raiders, it definitely is the gauntlet. Oh, and I should say then they go on the road to Seattle. So for their next five games are away from home.

That's tough. They've got to fight and scratch and claw. And as Josh McDaniels pointed out, everybody has to be all in.
