Download the Odyssey app today. He is my absolute favorite. I could listen to Mike Tomlin talk all day long and if we have the opportunity to get him on the show, I would say Super Bowl week, I know a lot of these coaches will do interviews.

It is a definite goal to be able to ask him, not about sleeping fast, though I might throw that in, but just to be able to talk to him one-on-one, I feel like that would be fascinating. All the former Steelers, or even current Steelers that I speak to, tell me that he's like that all the time. That's who he is.

He doesn't affect a different persona in front of the media or publicly. I mean, you might get some more choice words when you're inside his locker room. He's very intense, but he also is one that commands respect, and he respects you if you do the job. I love that. I just love how he has high standards for men to be men, not just football players. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio.

Hour one already in the books. What, what? We're live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios. Whether you're looking to purchase a new home or refinance yours, Rocket Mortgage can help you get there.

For home loan solutions that fit your life, Rocket can. White takes the snap. Four-man rush. Looks left.

Dancing left. Fires deep sideline left. At the goal line, it's caught. Into the end zone, Elijah Moore. That's a jet touchdown. Third passing touchdown of the game for Mike White. And Elijah Moore, with his first touchdown catch this season, extends the Jets League. We're going to go week to week. There's, there's things that we'd love to see Zach accomplish over the course of, we'll call it a reset, but this is Mike White's opportunity.

That doesn't change. So Mike's got an opportunity to go stack another great day up this week, and when we feel like Zach is ready to roll, he's going to roll. Lots of questions about the New York Jets, but not coming up in week 13 because after his three touchdown passes, his 315 yards passing a QB rating north of 149, Mike White remains the starter for the New York Jets. Have you noticed how people can't just call him Mike? They have to say Mike White. Maybe because there are a lot of Mikes in the NFL, or a lot of Mikes on the planet.

Mike White. All right, to that end, let's get some answers about these New York Jets. We welcome Dan Leberfeld, who's the publisher of Jets Confidential, and also a co-host Saturdays on Sirius XM NFL radio. Following this win over the Bears, Dan, as the Jets move to 7-4 and stay very firmly in the mix in the AFC East and the conference as a whole, what is the attitude, the atmosphere around the Jets now, considering what played out yesterday? Well, you know, Joe Douglas, the general manager, has said a couple of years in a row that his goal and the organization's goal is to be playing meaningful football in December. Well, it's finally going to happen with the game coming up Sunday in Minnesota at 7-4, Jets are in the wildcard hunt. I mean, they could still win the division, but I think wildcard's probably more realistic as far as what they can attain this year. So they're going to be playing meaningful football. The players are pumped. And I think you could make the argument, Zach Wilson, we could get into this, was rushed into action, was very raw.

The struggles are well documented. But now with Mike White, they seem to be a team that has a chance to do some things down the stretch and maybe make some noise in the playoffs because they have a very good defense. They have a very good kicker who can make it from up to 60 yards. And they have so many weapons on offense in the passing game. With Mike White bringing some stability to the quarterback position, this is a team that could be a tough out down the stretch.

What is the main difference between Mike and Zach? You know, when you really look at it, Mike White really benefited. A lot of young quarterbacks are rushed into action like Zach Wilson. But Mike White's a guy who was a fifth round pick of Dallas out of Western Kentucky in 2018. You know, he was in reserve in Dallas for a year. And then they actually brought in Cooper Rush and they waved him and the Jets claimed him in 2019. And he's been hanging around the Jets ever since on the practice squad, on the regular roster, bouncing back and forth. And he's had the chance to really be developed the right way.

You know, in Dallas and then with the Jets on the two different coaching staffs, got a ton of coaching. He was able to develop slowly and he really looks like all that preparation time has helped him. The big difference is he goes through progressions better than Zach Wilson. He throws with anticipation.

Guys come out of their breaks and the ball is in the air. He reads defenses better than Zach Wilson. So Mike White is ahead in many categories. In your opinion, Dan, seeing what you have of Zach midway through his second year, could he pick up those skills? Can he learn? Can he develop and do those things as well as Mike with a little more time? A little more time for sure. Maybe a lot more time.

You know, as a first round pick, Jets have him locked up for two more years after this and then they could pick up the fifth year option. I don't know if any of that's going to happen as far as him making it that far, but it's not like they have to be in this crazy rush. The idea of hitting the reset button with him, something Coach Robert Sala said the other day, he needs to work on his footwork, on his mechanics. So many things he needs to work on that the concept of him reemerging in a few weeks is not realistic if they really want to fix him.

Because, you know, most people who play sports know that if you're going to change your muscle memory, if you're going to change how you do things with your feet and your mechanics and all that kind of stuff, it doesn't happen during a couple week reboot. It's going to be the rest of this season working with the coaches and to me an entire offseason and then see what he can do in training camp next year. There are six weeks left in the regular season.

As you point out, the Jets have a very realistic possibility of playing in the postseason. Has any determination been made about QB for the rest of the season or for just week 13? Robert Sala might open up a can of worms when he said when he made the quarterback change, which is clearly the right thing to do last Wednesday when he announced it in his press conference, he said the plan is to have Zach Wilson get back on the field at some point this season. I understand that they're trying to protect Zach Wilson a little bit, but, you know, if you're Mike White and you're going out there and they're already telling you they want the other guy to be back on the field at some point this season, I just don't know if I would have said that.

I would have said the goal is to get Zach Wilson back out there at some point in the future once we get his mechanics fixed. I don't think that Mike White is going to be leaving the field anytime soon. Let's say the Jets stay in contention with Mike White. They're going to stay with the hot hand. But let's say they lose a few games coming up here. They fall out of playoff contention and they have a couple games at the end of the year that they're not playing for a playoff spot.

I could see them giving Zach Wilson those games, but as long as they're playing meaningful games in the playoff hunt, I don't think they're going to go to Zach Wilson this season. Dan Leberfeld is with us off another Jets win, though this one with a different quarterback. He's the publisher of Jets Confidential Magazine and also a co-host on Sirius XM NFL Radio. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio.

It's fairly obvious how much the team loves playing with Mike. Why is that? What's that game called that everybody plays now? It just slipped my mind this second. The thing in the parking lot during tailgating with the bean bags. Oh, cornhole. Yeah, cornhole. You know, it occurred to me today, you know, when you talk about quarterbacks connecting with their teammates and being one of the guys that, you know, throughout this year when the media was in the locker room, Mike White was playing cornhole with the offensive linemen and defensive players in the middle of the locker room. And I'm not saying Zach Wilson was wrong for not doing that, but it just made me think about how Mike White connects with, you know, different players at different positions and and he really has a strong bond with that locker room. And, you know, that example of the cornhole games just popped into my head today driving around, you know, about how this guy is somebody that is really, really respected in the locker room and a guy that connects with almost the whole roster.

So I think that's something to consider. Zach Wilson, you know, came out after his junior year at BYU. They played a very soft schedule. It was one standout year. He's only 23 years old now.

I just think that he's got a lot of room for growth. And Mike White is a guy that I think the players in locker room feel can give them a better chance to win right now. Zach Wilson apologized to his teammates last Friday after the QB change was made. What was he apologizing for, Dan? He was apologizing for that soundbite where he was asked if he felt bad about letting the defense down against the Patriots where they held the Patriots offense to three points and the offense did nothing. Zach Wilson threw for 77 yards and he gave that answer, which was clearly a mistake, when he said no, he didn't feel bad about the offense not doing their part. That's what he was apologizing for because that soundbite went viral.

I think he made a mistake as a young pro athlete because I think that he snapped at the reporter. He doesn't get along that well with that reporter. So when the reporter asked that question, he kind of got emotional and said no, no, like he was responding to one person.

But as we know, Amy, you're responding to a huge audience when all the cameras are in the room. It's not the one reporter asking you the question. Another thing that should be pointed out about that press conference after the Patriots game was this is kind of a strange scenario in the press conference room. Robert Salah was speaking. He was getting asked a ton of tough questions about Zach Wilson's performance.

And Zach Wilson was in the room because Zach Wilson was going to go to the podium after Robert Salah. And he was in the room hearing all these tough questions. So I think that put him in a bad mood when he took the podium.

Once again, he's got to be smarter than that and realize, you know what, no matter how I feel about the questions or or the questioner, I got to be above the fray and stay calm and act like a leader. So I think that press conference really hurt him as far as the standing with the locker room. So that's why he apologized. How much did that factor into the change at QB, Dan?

That's a great question, and I've been mulling that question the last few days and talking to other reporters about it because it's hard to prove. But my gut told me and this isn't based on sources because they're not really opening up about this topic, about whether they would have made the move with the soundbite or without the soundbite. But to me, I think they would have given him another game because he was picked second overall in 2021. They wanted to be the franchise quarterback and they had the Bears coming in and the Bears are not a good team this year. And on top of that, they traded two of their best defensive players before the trade guidelines and Quinn and Smith. It's quite possible that if he had not said what he said after the game that ticked off so many in the locker room, they might have given him that Bears game thinking, you know, we got a young quarterback.

We get him a win against Chicago and get his head right. So that's my gut feeling, not based on sources that he perhaps would have been given the Bears game, even with the poor performance in New England, if he had not made that mistake in his press conference. Interesting.

Tough lesson to learn. Dan Leberfeld is with us from Jets Confidential magazine. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. Is it safe to say that Elijah Moore no longer wants a trade? Yeah, I think it's fair to say, you know, I thought the Elijah Moore thing, not to keep piling on Zach Wilson, but I think the Elijah Moore problem was connected to Zach Wilson.

I'll tell you why. Zach Wilson, like a lot of young quarterbacks, tends to fixate on his first read and telegraph sometimes to his first read. He doesn't go through his progression smoothly. Maybe that'll happen in the future as he progresses as a quarterback. So if you're Elijah Moore and you have a quarterback out there who tends to go to his first read and you're not the first read very often, you're not going to get the football. And then you see Mike White out there completely passes to 10 different receivers, including Elijah Moore. For a touchdown, everybody's eating and everybody's happy. And Elijah Moore not being the first read when Zach Wilson was the quarterback, he was not getting the football. Now with a quarterback spreading the ball around more in Mike White, I think Elijah Moore will be happy. That's not to condone going on Twitter complaining or asking for a trade.

But still, I think that when you have a quarterback who gets a lot of people involved, you tend to avoid receivers complaining about their roles. When you think about where they are in relation to expectation, this is obviously an opinion question. Are they on schedule? Ahead of schedule? Behind schedule?

What are they, Dan? Well, they're definitely ahead of schedule if you buy the odds and we're all into picking games these days with the legalization of sportsbooks all over. And the Jets over under was five and a half coming out of Las Vegas as far as wins. So the fact that there's seven and four, if you want to use that as a barometer, they have certainly exceeded expectations as a team that had such a low one loss over under total. So there's no question they have exceeded expectations. They missed the playoffs 11 years in a row.

So, you know, I think Jeff fans like, you know, enough already. You need to make the playoffs this year. But I would say to a degree they've exceeded expectations because it's such a young roster.

You figured they were talented, but maybe they would need more development. They certainly ahead of schedule. And so now sitting at seven and four, looking at the rest of their schedule, man, it gets tough the next two weeks, especially on the road at the Vikings and then at the Buffalo Bills before they go Lions, Jaguars. But then two more on the road at the Seahawks and at Miami, who they are not going to see anything easy the rest of the way. No, I think that the two games they have to win because they're the better team to get to nine wins. Detroit at home, Jacksonville at home. I know Jacksonville had the impressive win over Baltimore, but the Jets should be able to beat Jacksonville at home and they should be able to beat Detroit at home. So if they get to nine wins with those two games and pick off one of those other teams that you mentioned.

You know, I think they should get a wildcard spot at 10 wins. It is a tough schedule. The Minnesota game to me is more winnable than people realize because Minnesota, their defense, we've seen recently, you know, with New England and some of their other games, the Dallas game, you can move the football on that defense. And they're a little beat up a corner with Dantzler injured and now Andrew Booth, their second-round pick out of Clemson, just had knee surgery.

So they're thin at corner. Jets clearly have a lot of weapons in the passing game, as we mentioned, and Mike White does such a good job distributing the football to the weapons. To me, the Minnesota game, I think the Jets have a very good chance in that game. Obviously, playing in that stadium is really hard. As you know, Amy, there's not a lot of great home field advantages anymore. Minnesota still has a legitimate big-time home field advantage. That place gets loud.

It does. And that is a great home venue for Minnesota. But I think the Jets definitely have a chance against the Vikings. Ooh, looking forward to these next six weeks with so much on the line. The AFC East and the NFC East with all eight teams above.500.

And somehow they turned into the best divisions in football. Find Dan on Twitter at JetsWhispers. Dan Leberfeld is the publisher of Jets Confidential Magazine, also the co-host of Press Coverage every Saturday on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

There's a lot on the line. Dan, it was great to catch up with you. Thank you so much for a few minutes. Anytime, Amy.

My pleasure. I don't remember the last time I did a Jets interview, and yet it's perfect timing. You could even hear the excitement in the voice of Bob Wieschusen, the play-by-play for the New York Jets, and over-the-top excitement. And I know they've had some big wins this year, but to see a performance like that from their quarterback as opposed to relying solely on their defense and scraping by. Breece Hall was an awesome addition. The rookie running back, who was well on pace for 1,000-plus yards before he tore his ACL. They haven't seen much offense since he got hurt. So this is huge. It's huge for them to see three passing touchdowns in the pouring down rain. Will Mike White remain the starter the rest of the way?

It certainly depends on production. But Dan makes some interesting points that are worth debating. Would Zach benefit from sitting the rest of the year and learning the hard way? And yes, it is a benching. Yes, it's embarrassing. Yes, it's not the plan. It goes counter to the plan. But the name of the game is winning.

And the team clearly responds to Mike. How much do you love that story about the cornhole? Oh my goodness, that's amazing. On Twitter, A Law Radio, also on our Facebook page, I promise bottom of the hour.

You got to see it to believe it. The moment of my Monday. My Monday moment that guaranteed it will be an amazing week. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Extended pressure right now out of the timeout.

Coach Jacques Vaughn does that. That's a making threes and a steal. Durant stole it from Bonder, driving it right down the lane to the rim and a two-hand slam. And an 8-0 run for Brooklyn.

They have their largest lead of the game. Right corner three by Durant and it's good. KD with 39. That'll bust the zone. 94-87 Brooklyn, 745 to go in the fourth quarter. Right corner three by Durant and it's good. KD with 39. That'll bust the zone. Durant up top. Played by Houston. Low crossover to a pull-up. 17-footer. It's going. He rattles it home. Durant's got 45.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Is that what it takes? It takes Kevin Durant dropping 45 for the new. I almost said the New Jersey Nets.

Yep, there it goes. They've regressed so much. They're now the New Jersey Nets to me again. The Brooklyn Nets. This is how they have to get the job done against the Orlando Magic team that's got five wins.

But a team that is clearly not the same caliber, doesn't have the same stars as one Brooklyn. But it took all of Kevin Durant. 19 of 24 from the field.

He was on fire. 45 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocked shots. And a partridge and a pear tree as the Nets get back to 500.

They're now 11 and 11. And of course, that offense, all of that offense, critical because they don't have as much of a bench this year. The Nets not going as deep.

They've got, of course, some injuries too. But really, it's Joe Harris who comes off the bench. Seth Curry has had some good games.

This didn't happen to be one of them. Only took three, well three triples. Took four shots overall.

Otherwise, there was hardly any production from the bench. So they needed what Kevin Durant could offer. Kyrie ended up with 20. But sure, they all know when Durant's in this kind of mode, he's got to feed him the rock. He shot over double teams. He was shooting over 7-3 tonight.

You know, guys coming over and trying to make it as difficult as possible. And we tried to give him support. I feel like we still can do more as teammates, but he carried us tonight. Proud of him.

I think it shows the preparation that he puts into his body. I don't know what he feels about the game. Like he approaches it like, we have to win this game. And he led us tonight in unbelievable effort. Took a lot out of him. But he'll recharge and be able to do it in another day from here. I do not know why the MVP was brought up in the conversation on Monday. It feels like it's way too early. Not to mention the Nets are barely back at 500.

But for some reason, Kevin Durant was answering questions about winning the MVP. I've been there, done that to be honest. And I know it's going to take a lot for me to be in that conversation. So I just want the respect from our fan base and I want them to have a good time when they come to the game. So if that's, you know, that's what strikes, you know, chance up is how I play from the fans as long as they're having a good time.

But I'm not too worried about accolades at this point in my career. As long as the fans are having a good time. I'm sure they're having a great time when you were demanding a trade and then asking for your coach to get fired. Not to mention your general manager.

But yeah, they're having a great time now that you're 11 and 11 out of the gate. Good point. Good point, KD. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. We had Joel Embiid back on the court for the Philadelphia 76ers in their game against Atlanta on Monday night. Twelve seconds to go in the game.

1-0-1-100. The Sixers will leave. Daniel Househead Young. Young throws it. Hits it by Embiid. And Joel pulls it down.

Five seconds to go. It's loose and a foul. So Trae Young went up top to John Collins. Embiid dropped back. He tipped the pass before it could ever get to him and they fouled Embiid. The NBA is better when Joel Embiid is on the court.

I don't think there's any doubt or even a question about that. And so this, and we talk about Kevin Durant having to give everything that he's got and the Nets needing that. All the Sixers needed all of Joel Embiid's big return. 30 points in 35 minutes to go along with 8 rebounds, 7 assists, couple of steals, couple of blocks. Filled up pistachi just like KD and the big concern obviously is how he's feeling. I'm good. I'm glad to be back especially after what happened. At first I thought it was going to be really bad so I'm just excited to come back in such a short amount of time.

Whew! That's some great ambient noise behind Joel Embiid on NBA TV. He hit a go ahead shot with about 19 seconds to go and was able to be out there until the very end.

So that would be a MVP. That would be a Joel Embiid conversation and he was hearing the chance of MVP MVP in Philadelphia. Missed the last 4 games with his foot injury and he's admitted he thought it was going to be a lot worse. They played okay without him.

They won 3 games without him but still it was a scary moment. Little bit like say the Von Miller situation and even now he's out and wondering how long that might be. Or if you guys had a chance to see Karl Anthony Towns get injured on Monday night, that looked really bad as well. It was a non-contact injury. He grabbed the lower part of his leg and well producer Jay and I were both thinking Achilles.

That's kind of what happens when you have an Achilles roll up, a tendon roll up but it sounds like it's a calf and they believe that he has also missed the worst possible situation. But speaking of worst, this is what LeBron James used to do to opponents. Now it's happening to his Lakers. The call on the floor is good and the Pacers are mobbing Nembhard.

Low key I felt good coming off my fingers for sure. I think going down the stretch in the second half it kind of looked like to the crowd maybe that we were kind of getting out of the game. Stuck together, came together with some big shots down the stretch and it went down for us.

They did. They outscored the Lakers by 10 points in that final quarter in Los Angeles and Nembhard with the game, well the shot of his season to this point. You hear his response on Bally Sports Indiana and before that the call on Pacers radio or is that the TV call? It's Pacers radio? Okay so then it's Mark Boyle on Pacers radio and I want to mention too Chris Corino on Nets radio and then Tom McGinnis on Sixers radio just so I give credit. Yeah kind of cool for the Pacers who right now are working on a pretty good start to the season.

I think they're even past the quarter poll if you will. But always cool to get a game winner especially when you're talking about hostile territory. As a coaching staff we implicitly trust these guys at the end of games to just play flow basketball and find the right shot.

It's very difficult to call plays at the end of the game because teams get their best defenders in. Tyrese did a great job. Miles got a great look. Ball kicked around and we found a guy that had fresh legs tonight who played a terrific game. Who hit the game winner and it was it was a joyous it was a joyous moment and you could tell that on the floor. So I'm really I'm really just so happy for the guys this is a game where they just hung in that just kept believing in each other and kept kept giving of themselves. And it amounted to you know really as good a win as we've had all year and we've had some good ones. You just got to finish the game. You know everything has to go wrong in order for you to lose a game like that and everything went wrong.

And he tipped the hat off to Indiana. They kept fighting. They kept pushing into the film room the next day and see ways you could be better.

See mistakes that you had and then you implement that to the floor. So another game on Wednesday versus another very good team in Portland. And you come out and you execute. At least they have seven wins now. For the longest time they didn't have any and then they had one or two. Not three.

Not four. Looking up. Jay I'm trying to make a serious point here. What are you doing. Actually I'm never all that serious. So anyway.

Hey just out of curiosity. Well first of all how was your Thanksgiving Marco. Because you ditched me. Well Jay ditched me too. I was here by myself. Well not completely by myself but I was the only regular on the show.

I held it down. In fact Jay was so sad that he was like really missing us. He actually tuned in. For some strange reason in the middle of the night to hear the show just to make sure I was on the air. I was clearly concerned.

Yeah he was awake. You did not. I'm assuming.

No sorry. No I did not. You don't need to be sorry. I wouldn't expect you to.

Yeah first I joked with you guys but I mean it's serious. The first Thanksgiving that I was off since 95. So yeah I didn't. Other than watching the giant game I didn't want anything to do with anything else. Agreed.

Agreed. I actually was able to check out for a good portion of the Thanksgiving weekend even though I was here Thursday night. So I understand at what point did you cease and desist with the leftovers. I was at my sister's for the actual like eating of dinner although I didn't eat dinner because that was right during the giant game. So they were yelling at me and I was in the other room watching the game. And then I skipped dinner to watch the game. Yeah I can't eat knowing that the game's on in the other room and you can't see the TV from her living room.

Do they not have a DVR? I don't know but that wasn't even in my mind. That wasn't going to happen. You skipped.

No no hold on. You just told me that you have not had a Thanksgiving off since 1995 but then you skipped dinner to watch a stupid football game. Not my fault the Giants were playing that. I didn't schedule that. I didn't schedule that. I can't do it. So what I did was like a dog I ate like during halftime over the sink just trying to put like a couple things on the plate.

I am so disappointed in you. I had such like a much better image and idea of who you were as a family person and you actually watched the Giants game during Thanksgiving dinner. Yes I did. Second half of the game my daughter sat in my lap most of the game though and I read her books while I was watching.

Does that count? I mean I was still engaged in what was going on. I can't believe you skipped Thanksgiving dinner.

You skipped it to watch a stupid football game. Yes yes I did. Yes I did.

Oh my God. Yes I did. And your family's okay with that?

Yeah. They know me. They've known me for a while now. I mean I had to wear the name tag and get reintroduced to everybody considering I miss all the holidays. I mean I do this for a living and I don't skip Thanksgiving dinner. Yeah I'm normally not there on Thanksgiving so this was step one. Next year hopefully I'm off again.

Giants won't play and then I can do whatever they want me to do. Your kids didn't care that you weren't eating Thanksgiving dinner with them. My son was gone in five minutes. He's got his cousin. He's ate. He ate whatever the first dish was.

He was gone. Your wife is fine with it? Yeah. Wow. I mean again if you look would they have preferred that I sat in the dining room?

Apparently not. Maybe they thought dinner was better without you. I was going to say that's part of it too. I'm sure they were thrilled that I was gone or maybe they was. I mean it's not like I couldn't see them or hear them. You could yell if you really needed me for something. I can't even believe you're justifying this.

Just admit that you put football above Thanksgiving dinner. Oh I said it from the top. Yes. No. Yes I did. Yes I did.

Yes I did. Wow. I'm okay with that. They seem fine. They seem fine.

Again I got a couple of. Are you serious? You can't just eat for 10 minutes and then go back to the game? Exactly.

No I can't. I'll eat during halftime. Over the sink. That was when I was kind of joking with my sister. I was like why is everything like wrapped up? She's like food gets wrapped up and put away. Whether you eat it or not. She's like if you want to get it out of the fridge that's fine. But after it's over it gets wrapped up and put away. Oh my gosh. That's what she said. She's like I'm not crazy with a lot of things.

Food does not stay out. Good for you sister. I said okay. You snooze you lose. That's fine.

Or if you watch football you lose. And I admitted right from the start. I said if this means that I don't get to eat today so be it.

I will make my decisions and like a grown up I will handle it. That's fine. They were cool enough to let me eat during half and that was fine with me. I was good. I was good. It would have been nice if the Giants actually won the game but hey you get what you get.

You get all that for a loss. Okay good. Thanksgiving comes around once a year so you're all set.

And hopefully the Giants don't play on Thanksgiving for another 20 years after this. Also I no longer care when you last hate leftovers. I'm so disappointed in you. Basically the next day because I didn't get that much to take home which was fine.

Again that's fine. Your sister had it. She seemed like she was fine but instead she hid the food from you.

No she was cool. I miss the it's basically like in my family it's kind of like look this is the food. Take what you're going to take put it with wherever you want to put it in.

Take what you want and then the rest of it's going in the fridge. Like she's good with everything being gone. She even joked because my son slept there that night to hang out with his cousin the next day. She's like I'd invite you over for dinner before you pick up Michael but all I got is green beans and carrots. She's like everybody took everything. That's awesome. So I didn't get in that. I wasn't involved because I was watching the second half. I think your sister might be my new favorite Belletti.

She would definitely be above me by far. That's not even a question. Okay now we're running late. I'm astounded. Like I'm flabbergasted. I'm surprised that you're surprised. I am surprised.

You've known me for quite some time now. Yeah but I work in this business 25 years just like you and it's just football. No no it would just be football if it wasn't the Giants.

Any other game yes. I'm with you. Not a problem. I drove through the Minnesota Patriot game. I only saw maybe still the fourth quarter. That's fine.

I was driving around and doing stuff during the Lions and Bills. That happens. It stinks.

I'd like to watch it. It is what it is. Giant game? No. Okay. Family does not trump the Giants. We now know. As long as they're food.

It's after hours with Amy Lawrence. Wow you shouldn't really put it like that because I can't really have a rebuttal. Marco Belletti. I'm just I mean I'm astounded that you love your family. You haven't missed. You might as well have worked. You should have just worked. The football game was on here and don't say another word.

We're already late. It's I get the last word. It's my show. So just I'm saying you could have worked instead.

It would have been totally fine. You are listening to the After Hours Podcast. It's a touchdown Tuesday on After Hours. Firing for the end zone. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. To cast your vote for the TD of the week, head to at After Hours CBS on Twitter or give us a call at 855-212-4227.

Los Angeles Chargers. Eckler in the backfield. Herbert under center.

Moshe Manis Keenan. Fakes the handoff. Rolling to his right. Looking for Eckler.

Has Eckler and he is into the pylon. Touchdown Chargers. Austin Eckler hits the right pylon for the score. He turns his shoulders to get the touchdown and this is it.

The Jacksonville Jaguars. 20 seconds to play. The clock turns. Trevor drops. Fires toward the right corner of the end zone. That ball is caught. Caught. Caught from a touchdown. In the right corner of the end zone.

How good is that? Touchdown Jacksonville. Marvin Jones Jr. The Cleveland Browns. 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.

The Las Vegas Raiders. 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. 10. Ball game. 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.

It's just an iso lead. It's a beautiful run. I have nothing to say. And then he says it. It's okay. I do that sometimes. I'm speechless.

But then I find the words. Those are your candidates for TD of Da Week. First the Chargers rallying past the Arizona Cardinals and it's 15 seconds to go when Austin Eckler barely squeaks past the pylon in the right corner courtesy of Justin Herbert plus the two point conversion to Gerald Everett and they stun the Cardinals once again in Arizona where it's going from bad to worse in the desert but the Chargers needed that win. Matt Smith on Chargers radio?

Yes. Jacksonville Jaguars with Frank Frangie and their situation also similar as they rally past the Ravens. Now theirs was a wild affair in the final couple minutes. We call this a freaky finish on Sunday. Not only did Marvin Jones catch the TD from Trevor Lawrence but the two point conversion to Zay Jones. Then Jim Donovan on Browns radio.

This was an actual true walk off. We had a pair of them in Sunday week 12. Nick Chubb after Amari Cooper catches a 45 yarder in the rain. Nick Chubb is able to cap the drive and end that game with a win against the Buccaneers. Finally Jason Horowitz on Vegas Raiders radio. 86 yards anyone?

Josh Jacob's longest run for a touchdown in his career and happens to be again in overtime in walk off fashion for the Raiders. You can vote for TD of the week at a couple different places. You can do it on our show Twitter after hours CBS or and I just retweeted or you can do it on our Facebook page named after the show. It's super easy to do and all of our polls originate from our show Twitter or on our Facebook page. We're glad to connect with you seeing some new followers and people who are just hearing the show for the first time.

That generally does happen around the holidays. We call it a touchdown Tuesday TD of the week and so we want you to vote now and as always we will consider your write in ballots. After hours here on CBS sports radio there's a moment from the weekend that I wanted to focus on a little bit and I know we don't have a whole lot of time to get to it right here. So we'll do it after the top of the hour and we've also got to talk about US soccer against Iran. It's Iran. That's according to the Iranian reporter that had a conversation with the US captain Tyler Adams. You'll be so impressed with him when you hear his response. So we'll talk about the US and their humongous game against Iran coming up in mere hours.

In fact we're talking about now 10 hours 10 hours away. But after the top even before we get to QB news Lamar Jackson tweeted in response to a fan on Sunday. The fan was giving him crap and saying that the Ravens should not sign him to a big contract and Lamar out of character responded in a way that was inflammatory.

I think offensive to some and it stood out to me so I want to comment on it. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence CBS sports radio. We'll be right back. And did we mention it's all free.
