When the whole family comes together to watch the game, nobody wants to miss a second of the action to run to the grocery store. With Instacart, you can get all your weekly groceries in as fast as an hour.

Less time shopping means more... game time. Let's go. Visit to get free delivery on your first three orders.

Offer valid for a limited time, $10 minimum per order. Additional terms apply. Well, well, well. Shopping for a car? Yep. Carvana made financing a car as smooth as can be.

Oh yeah? I got pre-qualified instantly and had real terms personalized just for me. Doesn't get much smoother than that. Well, I got to browse thousands of car options on Carvana.

All within my budget. Doesn't get much smoother than that. It does. I actually wanted a car that seemed out of my range, but I was able to add a co-signer and found my dream car. It doesn't get much... Oh, it gets smoother. It's getting delivered tomorrow.

Visit or download the app to get pre-qualified today. Going back through your questions for Ask Amy Anything and seeing a few about Vegas, Andy wants to know, will we be live from the Super Bowl this year? Well, not the actual game, no. But yes, Super Bowl week, radio row. It is our return to the site and the home of the grandest stage in sports.

The answer is yes. We will have shows Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from Las Vegas and we will be live from the Super Bowl this year. Las Vegas. And we will actually be in a radio studio that night. So our Vegas affiliate will be hosting after hours while we're on site that week. And I know most people, most shows, most hosts prefer to be on radio row. We could have been on radio row. We had the option to do our show from the Mandalay Bay Convention Center overnight.

But I actually declined. Number one, the acoustics won't be nearly as good in a wide open conference center, a wide open convention room as they would be in a radio studio or as they will be in a studio. Number two, producer Jay would not be able to run the soundboard if we were in the convention center. Someone else would have to run the board and so it's better that he and I are in an actual studio with a control room. And then another reason is I'm not super keen on being the only person in a huge convention center and maybe a one or two security guards walking around. I think I would prefer just to be in my comfort zone in a studio.

Again, the acoustics are really the biggest issue because it would sound like you're in a cavernous room with no people at 11 o'clock at night Vegas time. So we will be from a studio in Vegas, but we'll be on radio row Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday as part of the CBS Sports Radio Contingent. And of course, we're already working on possible guests.

And there's always some surprises, which is cool. And the people we encounter will do pictures, will do videos, haven't been to radio row since 2020 or 2020 in Miami. Before that, it was Atlanta. We did Minneapolis, we did Houston, we did San Francisco. Where else did we go?

Well, this is pre-producer Jay. Huh. Trying to think of where else I went, took the show. No, not Green Bay. Well, Green Bay for a game, but not for radio row. Minneapolis was definitely cold. It snowed every single day that we were there and the temps were, this is the morning that I finished up the show.

As I went from Minneapolis on that Friday morning before the Super Bowl to Wisconsin, cowtown central Wisconsin to visit my Grammy Helen, who lived just two hours from Minneapolis at the time. And that morning as I was driving to visit her, the temperature in the rental car was minus 17. And that was without the wind chill. But it was beautiful. I had rarely seen Wisconsin, the middle of Wisconsin in the snow. And it was gorgeous. Some of the photos that I have, Grammy would not go outside because it was so cold. But I kept going outside to take photos and it was beautiful. But that was cold.

It was very cold. And the radio row portion was located in the Mall of America and it was a zoo because it was roped off, but it wasn't a separate spot. We were literally in the middle of the Mall of America.

In the food court. And so it was jam packed. We were so, by the time we got toward the end of the week, we were so packed in like sardines.

That was fun, though. We had a really good time. Hannah Teeter, who is from the area, she's an Olympian, winter Olympian. She was on the show. And oh, also, I think that's where I met Jamie Erdahl, who's now on Wake Up or Good Morning Football, excuse me, on NFL Network. She's a Minneapolis native, I believe. So she was there.

I'm trying to think who else. Oh, Dan Orlovsky. We had fun hanging out because he was experiencing radio row for the first time. So yeah, it was a good experience. But man, Minneapolis in the wintertime is not for the faint of heart. But they had a brand new stadium, of course. And so it was being shown off, which is what typically happens when the NFL christens a new stadium.

They get a Super Bowl within a couple of years. And that's why it's in Vegas for the first time because Allegiant Stadium is rocking and rolling and ready for some action. We'll be at Mandalay Bay, I think it's South Convention Center.

And then staying at a hotel that's within walking distance. So looking forward to it. Never been to Vegas. It will be the first time and maybe the last time.

Who knows? We'll see how appealing it is. But I've already got some fun personal plans while I'm out there because I want to take advantage of this first ever trip to Vegas. If you missed my conversation with Johnny Avello, who's the director of Sportsbook for DraftKings. He's a guy who's made his home in Vegas for 45 years and has some great suggestions about what to see and what to do. And also how Vegas is preparing for the influx of people. He actually believes that Vegas will be really happy to see the people leave when it's time to go. Yeah, it's a crazy busy weekend, but it means a lot of money. Not that Vegas wouldn't be making money anyway because of its connection and really its center of the sports world when it comes to the gambling portion. Plenty of people take the trip to Vegas just to be there in the casinos and at the sports books during Super Bowl week. And so it's always been real busy. But now you add the people who are there specifically for the Super Bowl and it's going to be nutso. Even more of a circus. We're excited. We can't wait. It'll be Jay's first time on Radio Rose.

So it's eye-opening. I remember when producer Tom went for the first time. He was blown away.

Chris went of course too. It's nutso. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. I will be answering more of your questions for Ask Amy as I can get to them on both Twitter and Facebook. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to continuing this tradition now into year number 12.

It's the longest running feature we have here on After Hours and never gets old. Let's hope that by now Draymond Green has decided that his antics and getting suspended are in fact getting old. He is back with the Warriors.

He did his own podcast in which he admitted on the volume that he nearly retired and Adam Silver talked him out of it. But now addressing the media before he plays in his first game with the Warriors, he's anxious to get back on the court as quickly as possible. It's urgent from a professional standpoint because I wasn't hurt. You know, at least my body wasn't hurt. My mind was hurt. My feelings was hurt.

But it wasn't like some injury cost me off the floor. So it's very urgent because I've cost my team enough. You know, I've cost this organization enough, you know, and so it's not a time for me to just come back and be like, all right, I'm going to take my time and get back when I can.

No, like, you cost this yourself. He's taking accountability. He sounds different to me.

Now, it's easy to sound different in the moment. But he does sound as though he is ready to be accountable. And also, the fact that he went through counseling and the league did mandate this, he went through a bunch of sessions and then also Zoom calls with league officials and union officials and team officials.

I appreciate that Draymond is smart. He is open. He's honest. He's candid. He's a leader. He's emotional.

He's really good at his job. And this is one new perspective that maybe he needed by going through some counseling. If you're here just to satisfy some obligation or satisfy some public opinion, you're wasting my time and yours. And that was the most important thing for me that I could hear because that wasn't why I was there. Draymond even open about what his therapist told him.

If you're just here to check a box, then you're wasting my time, too. And honestly, for anyone who's ever been through counseling, I went through it when I was in college for a couple of months. It's hard work.

If you do it the right way, it can be painful. You feel very vulnerable in order to get to the root of some of your challenges, maybe your mental health issues, your conflicts, whatever it is, it's hard work. A friend of mine had said to me, going to a therapist is accessing tools that you don't have in your tool belt, essentially. You have some tools that you can use to deal with conflict or to address your mental and physical health. To admit that you need help is a big step in and of itself. But therapists are trained to give you other tools to help you deal with anxiety or depression or, again, other mental health challenges. Or in this case with Draymond, the fact that he couldn't control his emotions or didn't want to.

Either one is a problem. And he said that it was good for him to talk to someone and to kind of see a different perspective. And Steve Kerr agrees that this could be a major turning point for Draymond's career. What makes Draymond great is his bravado, his emotion. What makes Steph great is his confidence mixed with his humility. And it's interesting to watch how powerful humility can be. I love that from Steve Kerr. Yeah, Draymond's been humbled. Now, does that mean he comes out of it with humility?

I hope so. He wants to remove the antics moving forward. He plays on the edge. His emotion is part of what makes him so good at what he does. Why? Because he's passionate. And I know that because I speak as someone who is exactly the same way. My passion is what makes me really good at what I do. It makes me tenacious, determined, committed, willing to go the extra mile. I never give up, even when it looks like all hope is lost. All of those things stem from my passion for what I do.

And really for my passion for family, for friends, my passion for anything that I undertake is what keeps me going when it feels like it's impossible. And for Draymond Green, his passion makes him a damn good basketball player, one of the best in the league. Steve Kerr sees that. Steve Kerr gives him a ton of responsibility. Steve Kerr gives him a ton of responsibility and Draymond is really smart and knows that he's got to be able to channel that passion and that emotion.

Instead of letting it control him, he's got to use it and most of the time does use it as a positive, as an asset. He's the spirit. He's the heart.

He's the soul of the Warriors. They need it, but he's got to recognize that this could all be gone too. He's got to recognize how much he has to lose. And there comes the humility. There's no such thing as irreplaceable. There's no such thing as unforgettable.

There's no such thing as forever. There are consequences to your actions. And maybe, just maybe now, he's come face to face with that. And even though he had said he thought about retiring, that would have been in the throes of emotion too. He cannot let his emotion dictate his actions and his behavior because that's where he gets in trouble.

It's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio. This revelation from Draymond I thought was really insightful. I mean, he talked about his kids and wanting to be an example to his kids. But the fact that the NBA suspended him indefinitely, he believes, was a huge positive. When it is indefinitely, you don't know what that means either.

You know, and so that could be like who knows what. It's indefinite. And so, like I said before, I think having the time allows you to process those thoughts. And I'm also appreciative to the league for the indefinite suspension.

You know why? Because it was no goal to return. You know, it was no, all right, I'm going to work and get through these five games, so as soon as the five games is up, I'm back. Like, you know, a part of the indefinite and returning was being in a better space. And so, to allow my mind to process what it looks like and getting in a better space, I think you're able to then sit with those thoughts. But to like sit for five games, I'm targeting the return date. There was no target until two days before it was announced to you all that the ban would be lifted. How about that? If it had been a five or seven game suspension, my entire goal would have just been to survive it, get through it, get to the other end, finish the race, quote unquote.

But since I didn't know, I had to do the work or I wasn't going to be allowed back. Yeah, he's so smart. I've said so many times that if I could choose one current athlete with whom I would host a radio show, even just one time, it would be Draymond. He's entertaining. He's funny. He's really smart. He's quick witted.

He's clever. And he knows a ton about basketball. My hope is also that he recognizes this is no longer about just Draymond, right?

Your actions, not only do they affect your family, your kiddos who are going to see this eventually on YouTube or on the Internet, it also affects your teammates. And I heard him say as part of the volume that he is brokenhearted, that his actions have caused people to question Steph Curry. That his actions have reflected so badly on his teammates that now Steph's leadership is under fire. Hey, if you were a better leader, Draymond wouldn't get away with this.

No, Dray is responsible for his actions, not Steph, but he hates that it's reflected poorly on his teammates and not just that, but that he's left them in the lurch. And he said that as well, which I really appreciate, if not for him, because he cares enough to make a change for him, which I think he does now, then how about the people who rely on you? And that's part of what triggers with people who are as passionate as Draymond.

And again, I'm speaking from personal experience, personal perspective. A lot of what he does when he gets out of control is protection for his teammates and his being there for his teammates. He cares about those people. He cares about those people and if he can see how his actions reflect so devastatingly on them, but also leaves them in such a lurch, then maybe that is what causes him to hold back or causes him to exercise self-control the next time this opportunity comes around.

And believe you me, there will be other chances. Guys will go after him for this reason. They will attempt to get in his head and draw him out. They will attempt to goad him into screwing up again. He's been exposed for all the world to see. His opponents know how they can potentially get to him. They want him kicked out and they want him suspended so they don't have to deal with his basketball. You show an athlete or a team a weakness and they're going to try to exploit it. And this is Draymond's weakness. So he's got to be careful. Wherever the line is, he needs to step back two or three steps and listen to his teammates and his coaches when they tell him, Dray, knock it off. You're in the danger zone here. You're not helping us.

Ja Morant's coach also speaking out about the loss of his superstar guard for the rest of the season and just want to shoehorn that in because this is tough for the Grizzlies to have to deal with. Join the thousands of professionals who rely on Graybar to help keep them up and running. Yeah, Graybar does that. Instacart at life to cart. Well, well, well, shopping for a car. Yep. Carvana made financing a car as smooth as can be.

Oh, yeah. I got prequalified instantly and had real terms personalized just for me. Doesn't get much smoother than that. Well, I got to browse thousands of car options on Carvana all within my budget. Doesn't get much smoother than that. It does. I actually wanted a car that seemed out of my range, but I was able to add a cosigner and found my dream car. It doesn't get much. Oh, it gets smoother. It's getting delivered tomorrow.

There it is again. It's like music to your ears or more like music to your nose. That freshness is irresistible. Let's get a Downy Unstoppable bottle shake. And now a sniff solo. Nice.

Get six times longer lasting freshness plus odor protection with Downy Unstoppables in wash scent beads. Fortune injury. Obviously, we're working on finding the best care for him, the best surgeons to give him the best recovery. Everything we've gathered so far is he'll be ahead of schedule with his timeline before next season. Obviously, we feel for him. Teammates feel for him, but we're going to be there for each other. And our guys have been rallying all season long. I love the strides we've been making the last week or two.

We just got to keep pouring into that. Find the best version of the Grizzlies and just keep playing better basketball. Taylor Jenkins gutted for him, of course.

Why wouldn't you be? And I want him to also be in a good space like Draymond, where he's making smart decisions, where he recognizes that there are dangerous temptations out there if he doesn't stay disciplined, stay accountable, and really stay part of the team as much as he has to be separate from them to go through physical therapy and rehab and all about that. So this is tough. It's tough to be dealt blow after blow, even if those situations you created yourself. It's still tough to feel like you can't catch a break.

And so now you've got these two very different examples from the NBA of guys that, yeah, they're going to have to take care of their business. Moving forward, it's tough to do. But you know what?

If it was easy, everybody would do it. On Twitter, A Law Radio, on our Facebook page too. Coming up next, well, a man that I consider a friend but also a special guest because you thought pork rinds were just pork rinds. You thought pork rinds were just pigskins.

They're not. But also Mark Singleton, who's the VP of Rudolph Foods, is partnering with After Hours for us to get our show on the road to Vegas, and we're so pleased to work with him as part of Super Bowl week. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the After Hours Podcast. Getting you to the good half of your week.

It's the Hump Show on After Hours. The countdown is on to Las Vegas and, of course, the grandest stage in sports with the playoffs starting this weekend. Super-sized wild card weekend. We've got reunions on our minds. We'll talk more about it as we head through the second half of the week.

It's our Hump Show After Hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio. And you just heard me talking about the hot honey pub mix, a special pork rinds recipe. And why do I talk about pork rinds? Well, because first of all, I went through an entire bag of the spicy barbecue last week.

And second of all, because I love, love, love the perspective and the mission of Southern Recipes small batch pork rinds this time of the year. So we're pleased to welcome back our friend who's joining us from the Dallas area, Mark Singleton, VP of Rudolph Foods and an early riser, which is how we found our show. Mark, happy new year. Hey, Amy. Happy new year to you. Listen to that energy at what is 4 27 a.m. Texas time.

How do you do it? Oh, man, you got to get up early to make a couple of hundred million pounds of pork rinds a year. That's true. Okay. Tell people what you've told me about how popular pork rinds are, but mostly how much the business has grown since you started working with Rudolph Foods. Well, it's hardly me, but over the last 20 years, people have found out that that that pork rinds are just a great snack option. What was once, you know, a real Southern and Hispanic specialty food, kind of a niche food has become a keto Dorito. I mean, oh, my gosh, we've got people eating pork rinds all over.

As a matter of fact, six times as many people eat pork rinds today or actually it's three times as many people eat pork rinds today as they did just 15, 16 years ago. We've been sharing some of the recipes that you and I have talked about, some of the ones that piqued my interest in our last conversation, like coconut shrimp. We just talked about the hot honey pub mix, the seaside nachos. People may not realize that they add a bunch of extra flavor, and you've described it as a bacon-y crunch. Who doesn't love bacon? Oh, you know, and we've got all these great football games coming up and people are entertaining and people are tailgating, and we just want to continue to talk to your audience about what a great low-carb option, what a great bacon-y crunch that pork rinds add to almost any recipe where you've got a breading, whether it's fish, chicken strips, almost anything. I even do a dredged asparagus rolled in pork rind crumbs, dredged in eggs. Yeah, take asparagus, dredge it in egg, roll it in pork rinds, throw it in the air fryer. Man, it's bacon-y crunchy asparagus good and really good for you., and you can find some southern recipes, small batch pork rinds in a grocery snack aisle near you.

Also at a convenience store, which is the only place that producer Jay shops for his food,, another website with some great access to recipes. Now, Pork Rind Appreciation Day, celebrating its 15th anniversary. Why is this so significant, Mark?

Wow. And Amy, you've been with us in this effort from the start. Rudolph Foods, we're a family-owned company. We were founded in 1955 by John and Mary Rudolph. We're still owned by the Rudolph family today.

And they really love giving back to their community. And gosh, 16 years ago, Rich Rudolph said, Mark, how come there's not a PorkRind Appreciation Day? And I said, well, I don't know, Rich.

I don't think anybody's ever asked for one. So we started looking into it and we made the decision that we could raise a lot of money for a great charity and raise some awareness for pork rinds. And so we got a great governor of the state of Ohio 15 years ago to declare Super Bowl Sunday Pork Rind Appreciation Day. And we've been raising money for the Gridiron Grates and celebrating the biggest pigskin holiday of the year ever since. Why does it matter? Why does the money that goes to the Gridiron Grates matter? Wow.

You know, there's the bell ringer question. You know, you grew up, I grew up just really loving this game. I love what it did for me personally as a player. I love the discipline it instilled in me. I love the teamwork. I love my coaches.

And it's just such a great game. And the heroes that played it in the 70s and 60s, they didn't make a lot of money. I mean, you've interviewed them before on your show. And some of these guys are making $10,000 a year with a horse trailer as a sign of bonus. And they just didn't make the big money. Kenny Houston was a teacher in the off season. So many of these guys had second jobs in the off seasons.

They didn't have the pension that they have today. And, and we saw a real need and we, and the guy that was doing the best job out there of getting attention and focus and money. And that's what it takes to fix things is attention and focus and money, uh, was coach Mike Ditka. And what a delightful human being and what a, what a, a real, uh, uh, uh, hero of the game because he's been raising money, uh, and awareness for over 20 years, uh, for the good and greats. And we teamed up with them and it's just been the best partnership in the whole world. Cause we help these guys, these retired players and their families deal with medical and financial hardships that most people, um, wouldn't have.

They didn't do the destruction to their body. I mean, I only played through high school and I still have aches and pains that are and, and these, these guys played some, um, 10, 15, 20 years and the ability to help them with medical assistance, transportation costs, housing assistance, uh, utilities, medication. Uh, we've even helped, uh, I was part of an effort to get one player's knee replaced by a doctor here in Dallas and provided the flights, the operation, the hotel for his mom to stay and helping during recovery coach provided all of that. And it's just such an honor to work with Karen and coach and, and, and, and Brian Urlacher and Mike Golick and, and, and, and, and Ron.

Um, it's just such a thrill to work with these people to, to raise money and awareness for this great cause. Mark Singleton is the VP of Rudolph foods, but I now consider him a friend, uh, getting photos all the time of his great fishing escapades, as well as, uh, the entire snow mound that he built for his grandson, uh, was it over the new year? Was that when you did it for Asher? Uh, Archer was, uh, that was Christmas day. Oh, my gosh.

In Texas. Yes. Oh my gosh. So really cool. A great grandpa as well.

I mean, not great grandpa, but I mean like a great grandfather. I could be soon. Come on, Amy. It's a little soon.

That's true. Who will we get to talk to on radio row in Vegas when it comes to the hall of famers? Oh man, I am so thrilled. I mean, I mean, Steve Largent and Kellen Winslow are good on grades this year, our hall of famers. And, and, you know, they had such great career. Steve was ride receiver for the Oilers in this, uh, mainly the Seattle Seahawks NFL man of the year receiving yards later twice, which by the way, CD lamb just, uh, got, uh, Bart star award, NFL 1980s, all decade, uh, team and the NFL hundredth anniversary team, not to mention a Congressman, uh, Steve's just, just bringing a lot of energy and a lot of great information, uh, to people this year as our spokesman and just helping us, uh, get the word out about the grid on grades.

And then Kellen Winslow senior, uh, uh, a member of the NFL hundredth anniversary team, Sandy fifth anniversary team, two time receptions leader, and, uh, just, just a tremendous, tremendous individual and a tremendous advocate for the players that came before him, the players that laid the foundation for the NFL. We always get the invite to the big party, Mike Ditka's party. So is this worth attending? I kind of feel like you get stars in your eyes. You've told me about some of the people you rub elbows with.

Oh, listen, and by the way, you can go to green on and you can buy tickets. It's the best party in Vegas. Uh, I mean, it is so much fun to take your friends and family there.

We've done this for 15 years now. And when someone gets to meet their hero, they're Michael Erwin, they're Troy Aikman, they're Chris Berman. They're they're they're Joe green. They're Jack young blood. They're Dan Reeves.

The, you know, the, the, the, the, once again, the heroes of the game, you see them just go glass side, you know, and they hand their camera sheepishly. And the great thing about the party, since we're raising money for their friends, their buddies, their, their, you know, their brotherhood, and we've talked about that before the incredible brotherhood of these players, no matter what teams they played on, um, uh, it's just an amazing opportunity, uh, to, to, to, to bring together, uh, great fans and a great setting and, and celebrate some great players. It's the best party in Vegas. I encourage all your listeners to get on the internet, go to and find out how they can attend the party and, uh, be there with us. So and then and, all these awesome resources, mostly though, we are building up to Vegas and radio row and super bowl week.

And we're so pleased to partner with you this year, super bowl 58. And it's a historic, obviously first time in Vegas, my first time in Vegas. So yeah, I'm going to need some good advice and counsel about staying out of trouble. Just kidding. I don't get in trouble.

I'm kind of a good eater. Well, I mean, Vegas is, I mean, what an incredible year this is going to be. This is going to be, it's going to be a great super bowl. It's going to be the first time in Vegas. Vegas is really lit up for this. I mean, they are fired up about this and we're going to have some quite great stories. You've got to talk about. I've been listening in, uh, uh, by the way, uh, and, and, and then, and then, boy, some of the stories of the playoffs, the, the, the, the gate on the last weekend. Oh yeah.

Yes, a pack versus Dallas again, I mean, this is going to be incredible. It is. All right. So we will see you very soon. We're pleased to partner with you. Love what you do. Love to raise awareness and money for the gridiron greats.

And of course, as I mentioned to start, uh, it doesn't matter what time of the night it is. I can still go through an entire bag of the spicy barbecue, but the one I haven't tried yet is the blackberry habanero. I'm still waiting on blackberry habanero. Well, we've got a new one we're working on, uh, with, uh, country Western singer, Ian Monzick that I'm really excited about it. It's a huckleberry jalapeno and, uh, yeah, yeah, he, he, he's been playing with it with us and, and, uh, uh, we've got some great flavors coming out. You mentioned the hot honey, um, uh, uh, it's one of the real fun things, you know, when 20 years ago you were talking about, uh, how, how, how, how, uh, how, uh, how, uh, how categories go, there was plain and hot. That's it now we've got pineapple and show we've got chili cheese and yeah, you know, we really, uh, just seen people and we get such good ideas. You know, all the recipes we talk about, Amy, all of them, uh, come from customers that, that are using pork rinds and ways that we'd never seen before. They write in to tell us about it, they share it with us and, and indeed, uh, you know, during our sweepstakes this year, uh, somebody is going to win $5,000 of 15 months supply of pork rinds, and then one in 15 of them can get tailgating or, or, or cooking prize packs. So, you know, we've got a, a lot of incentives out there for people to play our, uh, pass the pigskin game and, uh, you know, maybe, maybe, uh, use that, uh, $5,000 for a new, uh, kitchen outside or a new cooker for this spring spending your money. Yes.

Yeah. All right, Mark, we'll see you very soon. Pork rind pork for the recipes.

Also, did I mention that they are Austin designed, Texas tested, and handmade down in the boot making capital of the world, Leon, Mexico.

Just do a quick search for Takovis on social media and you'll see how adorably styled these boots can be.

You're listening to After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Firing for the end zone, caught! Touchdown! Touchdown! Takes it himself to the parlour, touchdown!

One man to beat ten, he's gone! They throw in the end zone, caught! Touchdown!

Pay the guy a miss, he's inside the five, he's to the three, two, one. Tops the center-solving into the end zone. Touchdown! The people have spoken and one score stands above the rest. Here is your TD of the Week.

The Buffalo Bills. Jake Bailey punts this one away, it's a wobbler. Backing Hardy up to his own five. Gets to the ten, to the fifteen, threw a hole to the twenty. Twenty-five, thirty, he could go!

Fifty, forty, they're not gonna get him! Deontay Hardy, going the distance for the touchdown! And we're an extra point away from a tie ballgame! What a play by Deontay Hardy.

He backs up and retreats to almost the goal line. Ninety-five yard punt return for a touchdown. I tell people all the time, you never know when your moment's gonna come.

It's always just standing in the process and just always being ready when your number is caught. So, you know, definitely a blessing to be able to go out there and make a play, especially given the situation, the offense not really going. So, to be able to create a spark and get us going a little bit, it's definitely a blessing. Deontay Hardy with a punt return that not only pulled the Buffalo Bills into a spot where they were in a position of strength, dealing from a position of strength instead, but is also potentially so much more than that. And in fact, I saw one Bills fan who sent me a tweet calling it the most critical play of the Bills' entire season. Now, they had to win five straight just to win the, well, to make a playoff spot, win the AFC East. But yeah, early fourth quarter turning point against the Dolphins, and we'll see what kind of momentum they get from it moving forward.

Thanks for all of your votes. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Did you know that Russell Wilson's future may still be in Denver? That's interesting. According to Sean Payton, that door's not closed. There's so many things that go into a decision specific to the quarterback, which is significant, obviously.

So, it's too early at all. I spent half an hour with Russ yesterday, and I told him, I said, look, you know, I don't think it's going to be a long, drawn out process, but it hasn't been decided relative to what our plans are. And but as soon as we know something that certainly, you know, he would be the first to know.

You think he'd be the first to know? It's interesting to hear what George Patton said about why Russell Wilson was benched and that actually had nothing to do with the contract. During the bye week, I did reach out to Russ's agent in a good faith and creative attempt to adjust his contract. We couldn't get a deal done. We moved on with our season.

It didn't come up again. Fast forward week 17, Sean makes a change at the quarterback position. This was a football decision made by Sean, what he thought was in the best interest of the team.

This was completely independent of any conversations I had with the agent. Again, it was a football decision made by Sean. In regards to the negotiations, you know, I'll just keep the specifics private out of respect for really everyone involved. Negotiations are hard. You have difficult conversations, tough conversations, and you can characterize a negotiation really any way you want. And we always try to out handle ourselves professionally. And in the best interest of the Broncos, and this was no different.

I don't know, it seems disingenuous to me. Russ obviously told a different story, and it seems like we'll find out whether or not he's on the roster moving forward. But it seems like mostly the Broncos are trying to recoup money and salary cap space and didn't want him to get hurt because of the bonus that they told him they didn't want to pay. And also, if they truly did threaten to bench him going back to the bye week, which is what Russ said, then everything we just heard from George, how can that even be considered accurate or authentic? It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio.

We always try to end our hump show with something that will fire you up or make you laugh. And he wasn't laughing. The Toronto Raptors head coach just had a fit following the loss to the Lakers by one point. By one point last night, what happened tonight? This is completely BS. This is shame. Shame for the referees.

Shame for the league to allow this. Twenty three free throws for them. And we get two free throws in the fourth quarter.

Like how to play the game. And this is not happening first time for us. Scotty Barnes is going to be all star.

He's going to be the face of this league. And what's happening over here during whole season? I've been calling you back.

It's a complete crap. It's happening a lot. But I'm telling our guys, be professional. Keep fighting. Keep going for the next one. But until when?

For how long? That's Darko Ryakhovich. And it's complete crap. It's a complete crap. That's going to be my new favorite rant. Not only is that a Hall of Flame candidate that's brought tears to my eyes, but what a drop that is. We're going to use that over and over. That's better than Kawhi's laugh when he was in Toronto.

It's complete crap. That better make you laugh as you start off your Wednesday. We'll talk to you tonight. It's after hours, CBS Sports Radio. Boom! The best way to find popular parlays and more.
