Need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family? Well, Rocket can. It is the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio and it's time to get to week six of No Huddle Offense. Touchdowns, sacks, upsets and last minute heroics. Another NFL Sunday is in the books and we've got you covered with the biggest plays and sound bites from another wild week in the National Football League.

It's time for No Huddle Offense on the Zach Gelb show. The Falcons got out to a 14-0 lead. Then it was a tie game and the Falcons still found a way to win the game. I know that the 49ers without nine defensive players yesterday, but losing 28 to 14 to the Falcons. Just when I was starting to believe in the 49ers, now the 49ers next up had the Kansas City Chiefs.

Man, it shows you how in the NFC West you can't feel great about any of these teams right now. Marcus Mariota and Arthur Smith's squad continues to play tough. Here is a three-yard touchdown run to make it 21 to 14 right before halftime. Here is West Durham on the Falcons radio network in the game for Mariota. 13-14, 129 yards and three total touchdowns. Falcons are now 3-0 when Mariota has completed 13 or fewer passes this year and Atlanta improves to 6-0 against the spread this season, 3-3 on the season for their actual record.

Here's West Durham. Snap to Mariota. Marcus will keep it right side.

Turn to corner. Touchdown Atlanta. Marcus Mariota.

Beautifully executed. Beat San Francisco to the corner. Atlanta's got the lead with under a minute to go. 50 rushing yards for Marcus Mariota in that game as well. The Patriots zap the Browns led by Bailey Zappi. 24-34, 309 yards, two touchdowns, no picks. A 118.4 passer rating, but who's counting?

And Zappi is the first rookie to win his first two career starts and post 100-plus passer ratings in both games since Sonny Jurgensen all the way back in 1957. Do we get some Zolack sound effects? Do we, Hickey? Oh, don't disappoint me. This is my favorite part of the segment. I will not say. Just take a listen. Okay, here's Bob Sosia on the Patriots Radio Network. Connor Henry, 31 yard touchdown grab. This made it. Patch 24. Browns, woof woof, six.

Wow. All you got was an oh my from Zolack? I think he felt sympathy probably, probably for Cleveland. Like this is just a beat down. No, that's when Zolack's at his best.

Maybe he's a Mac guy and now he's concerned. That was like plus eight 50. Zolack, not to have an over the top reaction. I'm still shocked. A little different from last week's.

Cool. Thanks, Dan Campbell. Taequann Thornton, by the way, second career game, the rookie wide receiver at a Baylor who's been dealing with some injuries, had two touchdowns, one receiving, one rushing as well. You know, I was so happy about that game yesterday, 38 to 15, they win. Pat's now three and three on the year, but not having Zolack go nuts makes me feel like you probably how you were watching Penn State of Michigan over the weekend. I would love to reverse roles. Be depressed because my team won and you have a radio broadcaster just being quiet. I need Zolack to go touchdown! Get in there! Take that Cleveland!

Redemption for Belichick again! That's what I need. All right. Can we just end the segment now?

The segment's ruined for me. Wrap it up. We'll get to the next game. The New York Jets, the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets.

They're four and two. Jets take it to the Packers, 27 to 10. Breece Hall looking like a potential rookie of the year in the NFL. 34 yard touchdown run to make it 24 to 10.

Here's Bob Waschusen on the Jets radio network. Zach Wilson takes the snap. Counter handoff. Up the middle goes Breece Hall. He's at the 30. At the 25, 20.

Right side 15, 10, 5. Touchdown! A little counter inside handoff to Breece Hall who finds some Jets fans in the crowd and does a Jets Lambo leap. Could you see Breece Hall winning offensive rookie of the year and Sauce Gardner winning defensive rookie of the year? Because Breece Hall had an unbelievable day. 20 carries, 116 yards and a score. But really I thought the big story was, out of all the rookies, Sauce Gardner. Sauce was great in that game yesterday.

And right now, absolutely a chance. Credit to Joe Douglas. He did a tremendous job this past draft. It just shows you, Joe Douglas has always been touted and praised for his drafting abilities.

You're really starting to see those results pay off with some of the young talent that the Jets do have. Aaron Rodgers by the way. 26-41, 246 yards.

A touchdown sack 4 times. It's a 7 straight regular season game for Rodgers throwing less than 275 yards. And things are not looking good for the Packers. They fall to 3-3. Vikings by the way, they go to 5-1. NFC North, it's getting late early for the Green Bay Packers chances. Colts come back. They win up against the Jaguars.

Hickey has something to be happy about even though it's probably false hope. Colts win 34-27 over the Jaguars. Matt Ryan, a 32 yard bomb to Alec Pierce. And he took a shot on this play, Matt Ryan.

This made it 34-27 the final with just 17 seconds left in the 4th quarter. Here's Matt Taylor on the Colts Radio Network. Three receivers to the left. Ryan throws down the near sideline looking for Alec Pierce.

He's got it! Touchdown! Touchdown! Alec Pierce spikes it into the end zone. Touchdown!

I-N-D-Y! A 32 yard grab over the shoulder snag. I don't hate Matt Taylor but I don't usually love his calls. I thought that was a phenomenal call there hot day, Hickey.

Captured the emotion perfectly. 42-58 for 389 yards. Three touchdowns for Matt Ryan. It's the first game this season without a turnover. Michael Pittman Jr. who I loved coming out of USC.

I thought he should have been a first round pick. 13 catches for 134 yards. Skyler Thompson was in then he gets knocked out of the game. Teddy Bridgewater had to come back in for the Dolphins.

Tuatunga Vailoa is going to return next week. Dolphins up against the Steelers. I believe that's a Sunday night game I want to say. Vikings Dolphins though in this one.

It's the Dalvin Cook show. 53 yard touchdown run. This made it 24-10 in the 4th quarter. Dalvin Cook 13 carries for 77 yards and this touchdown courtesy of Paul Allen on the Vikings Radio Network. Minnesota leads 16-10 with 3.26 to go in the game. Handoff Dalvin.

Miami native with some room left side. He cuts to the right. He gets to the 30. Dalvin 20 and is loose. Touchdown. Welcome home Dalvin Cook. Love that call by Paul Allen.

I think that's Pete Bursich in the background screaming. That's awesome. I don't know.

I don't want to say ever. But. I've been really discouraged with the Cincinnati Bengals. Even in a win yesterday. That Saints team did not have Michael Thomas. They did not have Chris Olave who could be the rookie of the year. And they also didn't have Jarvis Landry. And how many big plays did you see the Bengals defense give up? And the Bengals offense.

It took them forever to really get going. Now I had the Bengals laying a point and a half. The fact that I covered this spread. Especially after Trey Hendrickson had a stupid roughing the passer and it was legit. Back to back to back penalties for the Saints and then you roughed the passer. Like what? It was horrible. And I couldn't believe that. It's like almost as if Trey Hendrickson just saw the court and goes I'm going to light him up.

I don't even care if it costs us. I'm third and 25. Bengals win though and it's a large part because of Jamar Chase.

Going back to the state of Louisiana. 7 receptions, 132 yards, 2 touchdowns. And this was the game winner. It was a 60 yard TD to make it 30-26 with just one 57 left in the fourth quarter.

Here's Dan Hoard and one of my favorites, Dave Lapham on the Bengals radio network. He's throwing the gun. Mixing to his left. Joe drops back to throw. His pass caught by Chase at the 50. Runs through an arm tackle. Down the sideline.

He's going to take it to the house. Jamar Chase, a 60 yard touchdown. And the Bengals have the lead with one 57 to go. Let's go to the swamps of Jersey. Ravens were down to the Dolphins.

35 to 14. Dolphins came back and won. You also had the Ravens who were up 22-3 against the Bills. The Bills came back and won.

This was 20-10 in the fourth quarter and the Ravens lost 24-20 to the Giants. The Giants are going to make the playoffs. They're 5-1. They're going to find a way to get to 9 wins. Their next 4 games, cupcake games, they just go 2-2.

At worse. You had 7 wins at Thanksgiving and it should be better. Got to give a lot of credit to Brian Dabel.

Right now he's the coach of the year. Here's Saquon Barkley on a 1 yard touchdown run. This made it 24-20 with 143 left. And then we will also play you the Kayvon Thibodeau forcing Lamar Jackson to fumble the football with 140 left to seal the victory for Big Blue 5-1. Here's Bob Papa on the Giants radio network. And the Giants have the lead with 143 to go.

Jackson in a shotgun set. Call signals. Takes the snap. He's back to throw. Under pressure. Hit by Thibodeau. Ball comes loose. And the Giants scramble for it.

It's still loose. And finally recovered by the Giants at the 12 yard line. Kayvon Thibodeau gets his first career sack in big fashion. Remember we had Idiot's question if Kayvon Thibodeau actually loved football or not. And I remember when we talked to him at the Super Bowl and I go, you get so much unfair criticism.

Did you see him after the game? Hot take kicky? Crying. Like Miraz after week 1.

Special stop. We got a football team. We got a coach. That was Kayvon Thibodeau. It's almost as if Miraz, because he looks like Brian Dayball, anything that Miraz says maybe Brian Dayball's listening to and Dayball has injected that into the team.

Because Kayvon Thibodeau, who looks nothing like Miraz, was basically Miraz yesterday, crying after the game. That was some special stop. That was awesome by one Kayvon Thibodeau. Lamar Jackson, 17-32 for 210 yards. Did have a touchdown. 2 turnovers though. Saquon Barkley.

Comeback player of the year looking that way. 98 total yards on offense and that touchdown. Steelers, Buccaneers. If I would have told you that the Buccaneers would have lost to the Steelers, would you have ever believed it heading into Sunday? Even with how bad the Buccaneers have played. I thought this game was going to be closer than some expected. I wouldn't say win or I should say lose. Wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. Now if I told you Kenny Pickett got hurt and Mitch Trubisky, now maybe Trubisky but will still soon once again be Trubisky, got the job done, would you have believed that?

Oh, of course. With how he played the first 2 and a half games. Stop you sarcastic son of a bitch. Well here is Mitch Trubisky, Trubisky on a 6 yard touchdown throw to Chase Claypool. This made it 20-12 in the 4th quarter.

Here's Bill Hilgrove on the Steelers radio network. Long count. Gets the snap.

He's back. Fires for the end zone. Touchdown to Chase Claypool.

Wow. Mitch Trubisky 9-12 for 144 yards and a touchdown. So that's now 2 times this year that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they get a score late and they go for 2 and they can't get the job done. Up against the Packers, now up against the Steelers.

Bucks 3 and 3 on the year. You know a lot of conversation after that. Tom Brady was at Robert Kraft's wedding. Did you see who was at Robert Kraft's wedding?

I did not, no. Meek Mill, Elton John, you had Al Michaels, Ed Sheeran. Al Michaels? I did not see Al there, interesting. Well good for Al, he needs that. Well actually I don't know if Al Michaels, let me clarify that. Al Michaels wasn't there but he was the one, I think it was probably be in person. He does one game, the Thursday night game.

It is free. He needs a break after those two ugly games. Yeah that's true. He let loose. He used a drink and some of the food at the Kraft affair. But I guess he was the one that made the announcement and kind of, cause it was a surprise event. And then I don't know if it was on the screen or if Michaels was there, I'd assume he would be there. That he kind of did like the narration of the whole announcement of Robert Kraft and his new wife who's a doctor who's like 47 or something like that. So that's how they kind of surprised everyone.

Belichick wasn't there though. Wait a second, cause I saw it was a surprise wedding. They invited people, didn't tell them like the reason for the... No! Oh so when they say surprise that's... They said it was like a football something at something party but very important to Robert for people to be there.

At least that's what I read. Oh that would make... And Robert Kraft was my invitation. You know we've met a few times. I was a little insulted I wasn't there. I don't want to be insensitive.

But I'm going to ask a question anyway. Yeah. Robert Kraft, football guy, obviously owner of a team. Why is he having a wedding in the fall? Couldn't have done this six weeks earlier?

Or two months, three months later? Well how many people you probably have to invite that are involved in football? Exactly. Now time out, if they don't get the invitation or they don't get the invite, oh well I didn't want to ask you in the season, maybe he didn't want actually some of those people there. But most of the people that he wanted there were there.

Only one that wasn't was Belichick. Do you think maybe that's why he did it? He knew Bill would not go and he goes, oh you know what? Probably be a happier night with Bill and not there. Let's just do it on a Friday in the fall.

No days off, no days off, no days off. Kraft 81, his bride who's a doctor, 47. I just reported that like it was a score. Do we have a highlight from that wedding?

Where's Al Michaels? That's probably the most accepting he had to play the last two Thursday nights. There was more scoring going on there than the last two Thursday night games, I'll tell you that.

That's for sure. Rams and Panthers. Doesn't that feel like a loss yesterday? Matthew Stafford, another pick 6. The Panthers had no life offensively.

They stink. Robbie Anderson runs off the field or gets tossed off the field, then he gets tossed to the Arizona Cardinals. Rams win 24-10. Let's get the Ben Skronak 17 yard touchdown run to make it 17-10 in the third quarter. Did J.B. Long do his classic like, touchdown LA! If he did that in this game, geez, then you're all shtick.

Let's listen up J.B. Long. Another jet sweep, a handoff Skronak, he's got speed, he's got the edge, he goes in untouched. Ben Skronak, touchdown LA! His first as a pro.

Really? I get it, it's the guy's first touchdown as a pro? Ben Skronak, touchdown LA! You're playing the dreadful Carolina Panthers and that was a game. Seahawks 19, Cardinals 9. Kenneth Walker, welcome to the NFL. 11 yard touchdown run to make it 19-9 in the fourth quarter.

Here's Steve Rabel on the Seahawks Radio Network. In the game, Kenneth Walker, 21 carries for 97 yards. And a score, Kyler Murray, 23 of 37 for 222 yards and an INT.

Murray, though, did rush for 100 yards on 10 carries. Let's hear the Kenneth Walker score. Underneath handoff to Walker, cuts back outside to the 10, stiff arms a man to the 5, he's in! Touchdown Seahawks! Let's go to Kansas City. Bills, Chiefs, back and forth we go on another classic game. Moa scoring than what we thought. With the game on the line, Josh Allen stepped up and delivered. Von Miller stepped up and delivered.

Patrick Mahomes, not so much. Here is the Josh Allen 14 yard TD strike to Dawson Knox. This made it 24-20 with 1.04 left in the fourth quarter. And then Terron Johnson with the interception pressure by Von Miller with 51 seconds left to seal the deal.

Here is John Murphy on the Bills Radio Network. Takes, Josh, looks to throw, looks in the end zone, fires a strike into the end zone, it is caught for the touchdown! It is Dawson Knox, 2 yards deep in the end zone, touchdown Buffalo! Mahomes takes, has a pocket, gets away to the right a little bit, he fires downfield, it is picked off, picked off of the 20 yard line, intercepted by the Bills. Picked off by Terron Johnson, he goes down right there and the Bills have the football. They are celebrating, they are running down to the end zone for the celebration. Is it me or does John Murphy sound a little bit stunned there? So the interception.

Like someone said that you're stunned. Right, like there wasn't a lot of excitement, like Bills win. The touchdown, the touchdown I get it, because there is still 1.04 left. But on the interception I'm expecting him to freak out and lose his mind. Maybes are ready for overtime.

You know what, lock it up, actually no I guess. Game is over, what are you talking about? He's expecting 3 more scores I'm sure. Stop. With 1 minute left.

I haven't heard much of John Murphy to be fair, so maybe he's not as exuberant, but I thought you'd be losing your mind on that situation. Well Bills fans are losing their minds, as they should be. Because they have the best team in the NFL, Josh Allen, 27-40 for 329 yards and 3 touchdowns MVP MVP MVP. And Staphon Diggs, 10 receptions for 148 yards and a score Mahomes. 25-40 for 338 yards and 2 touchdowns but also 2 INTs. Is Staphon Diggs right now the best wide receiver in the NFL? Jefferson could definitely rival him.

We know how great Cooper Cupp is. But what Diggs has done for Buffalo, could be the best wide receiver in the league. Front runner right now for offensive player of the year, right? Wouldn't it be Josh Allen? Well usually they don't give it to a quarterback. So let's just say that for MVP.

You're gonna go non QB. Lee Diggs is the league leader in definitely yards. No I thought Tyreek Hill was the league leader in yards. Is he?

Yeah because I saw today that he's on pace to match Megatron or go past Megatron. Yeah he's 701 yards Tyreek Hill. Diggs is at 656, 49 receptions and 6 touchdowns.

Yeah definitely in the conversation. Finally Eagles Cowboys. Mel Reese on the Eagles radio network. Devante Smith 7 yard touchdown reception to make it 26-17 on the Eagles radio network powered by PNC for the achiever and you. It goes into the end zone. Touchdown Devante Smith.

Hurts faked inside straight up through it. Devante Smith for a touchdown. Mel Reese and Eli Gold.

Very similar sounding voices. Jalen Hurts 15-25 for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns. Eagles win their 6-0 Cowboys fall to 4-2. Looks like they will get Dak Prescott back very soon.

Eagles go into the bottom. Zach Gilp show CBS Sports Radio. You can think O'Reilly Auto Parts for all your car care needs.

Get guaranteed low prices and excellent customer service from the professional parts people at O'Reilly Auto Parts. No score. Game just underway between the Broncos and the Chargers.

Picky what do you want to see tonight in this game? Because I think we may differentiate on our responses but I'll let you go first here and see where you're at on this one. For my own personal interest of being right I want to see just a pulse.

A pulse from Denver. There's no chance you're right. You said Russell Wilson is going to win the MVP. Well that one is probably gone. You said probably it's over he's not getting a vote. 90% done. I'll leave a 10% window just for a miraculous 10 week turnaround.

Starting right now. You said the Broncos are going to win the Super Bowl this year. That's gone though. And then you said Nathaniel Hackett is going to be a top 3 coach of the year. He may be one of the first 3 coaches fired.

Rules already gone. You know there's going to be at least 2 more coaches fired. Nathaniel Hackett, I don't know if he makes it this season.

He's going to get snipped at least at the end of the season you would think. I think there's a real chance he could be fired by the bye. By the bye? 3 more games.

You're on primetime tonight. If we see another 6 points. Well then you don't want to see them have a good performance tonight like you just said.

You just contradicted yourself. If you think Nathaniel Hackett is going to get fired by the bye. They play Los Angeles, the Jets.

Right now they play the Chargers, they play the Jets and then the Jaguars. Well I'm not rooting for him to get fired. No ill will for Nathaniel Hackett. I'm just saying I hope there's a turnaround but if there's not.

Like if you are George Payton and I know at that point it would be what 8 games? Is that really his call though? Or is that new ownership's call?

Either one. I mean if you're the Walmart or the Walt Penner family and you really want to come in here and just continue to watch this slot fest. Like Russell Wilson is no spring chicken. It's not like he's Justin Herbert and you have an unlimited time to get it right. That seems early though. By the bye week in 3 weeks. I would think he's at least going to see right before Christmas and then if this really spirals out of control.

The last 3 weeks of the season Rams, Chiefs, Chargers then you start the search basically. Sean Payton please please please please please come coach our team. That's what I think it ends up happening. I think you owe it to your team of youth. Again if this is the same offensive performance as what you've seen the first 5 weeks.

The same dysfunction. We've seen an offense getting plays in. Getting the ball snapped on time.

I would say time to go. He's lucky this game isn't at home tonight. Cause those fans deservedly so have already turned on him. And they have mocked him multiple times and tried to help him out with counting on the play clock if you recall earlier in the season. But I'll start with the Chargers. I want to see the Chargers play a complete game. They have not played a complete game all season. Even in their wins they got out to that lead up against the Raiders and let them back in the game. They got out to a good start against Kansas City then couldn't finish. They just didn't show up against Jacksonville. They played a good first half up against the Texans then shut it down in the second half.

And last week against Cleveland that was a back and forth game where they almost gave the game away. So I want to see the Chargers play a complete game but let's not forget. Brandon Staley is on the hot scene.

I saw Jason Lockett for us over the weekend that Sean Paden he has his eyes set on the Chargers job if it was to become available. Brandon Staley you better not be the national embarrassment tonight. And your team better blow out the Denver Broncos because you have a great quarterback in Justin Herbert. I know Keenan Allen is not playing but you got a really good roster.

Mike Williams, Austin Eckler. You got a lot of players on defense too. And last week you just lived and died by the analytics and it should have if Cade York would have made the kick. Should have cost your team the game. So I think we're all talking about Daniel Hackett to Daniel Hackett. And don't get me wrong I have no confidence in Daniel Hackett to turn this thing around in Denver. But Brandon Staley you lose this game then all the attention starts to go to you because you'll be sitting there with a football team that has that same old Chargers moniker that they always have to deal with.

They would be 3 and 3 if they lose this game tonight. You got to take advantage especially especially when Kansas City who you already lost 2-1 lost on Sunday yesterday to the Buffalo Bills. So it's a big spot for both coaches. I think it's I would even argue it's a bigger spot for Brandon Staley because I just have no expectations for the Broncos. The Chargers I actually have legit expectations for. So I want to see if the Chargers can play a complete game.

And then you mentioned it. Isolated window, Broncos in prime time once again. Is Russell Wilson, and let's not excuse him from this conversation, Mr.

Unlimited. And in addition to that the head football coach to Daniel Hackett. Are they going to be a national embarrassment once again?

That's what we're going to have to wait and see. Russ is driving right now. They're at the 32 yard line of the Chargers and they're going to get stuff short so this is going to bring up 3rd and about 2 here. Early stages between the Broncos and Chargers. Who wins this game tonight and how does this game play on out? I mean I can't in good faith sit here and pick the Broncos.

I just can't. I think the Chargers are going to win but I want to see them win big. I think they'll win the game by 7 and it's going to be a sloppy, sloppy performance I think by both teams. I'll go 21-17. I like the low scoring. Broncos defense is good. You're right on the number.

It's like 4-4.5. Vegas sometimes they know. They are good at their job. Sometimes.

They always know. Vegas doesn't usually get it wrong. Russell Wilson just sacked and ooh he got to be careful. He may lose the football.

Nope. Able to hang on to it so that's going to bring up 4th down. You got to kick the field goal here with McManus. You never know with Nathaniel Hackett. You have no clue when it comes to Nathaniel Hackett but you got to think he's going to be kicking the field goal here. Maybe let the play clock run out.

Take a delay game and punt the ball. Wow. You know what that sounds like to me? It sounds like someone that is not happy with all of his wrong Broncos predictions right now and has to take any shot that he can on the low hanging fruit that are the Denver Broncos. I'm just calling it as I see it. Some of the incompetency is outstanding. 51 yard kick by Brandon McManus.

Good. Some may say that would have been good from 64 yards out. That looked pretty damn good to me. And I think that had at least 10 more yards left on it. So the Broncos strike first. They're up 3-0 against the Los Angeles Chargers. It is the Zach Guilbe show on CBS Sports Radio.

When we come on back, something that I've never seen before from an NFL player and also two coaches where the spotlight is on and they're not named Nathaniel Hackett or Brandon Staley. Fantasy football leagues are one on the waiver wire and with trades and with savvy starter sit decisions. The Fantasy Football Today podcast will help you along the way with the best advice on how to manage your team and dominate your league with eight episodes per week.

Check out Fantasy Football Today anywhere podcasts are found. I now know why I never made it to the NFL or I didn't even want to play college football. I'm not as tough as Jordan Poirier. If I had a collapsed lung, I'm not even thinking about playing.

Jordan Poirier had a collapsed lung. He can't fly, so he takes a car service 15 hours to the game from Buffalo to Kansas City. He plays 100% of the defensive snaps and then, oh yeah, by the way, on the way back, not cleared to fly once again, takes the car service back 15 hours.

That could be one of the toughest things and one of the most badass and crazy things that I've ever seen in the NFL and we've seen a lot of them. But I've never heard of a player taking a car service and this isn't like, oh, let's go to Buffalo to the games at MetLife Stadium. It's like a seven hour drive.

You're going from Buffalo to Kansas City, 15 hours in the car. I know this was a big game. It's week six, though.

You have every reason, if you wanted to, to say, guys, I'm inactive. I'm not playing. We'll go get them the next game. Jordan Poirier, not so fast. No, no, no. Car service, 15 hours there, 15 hours back, plays every defensive snap and the Buffalo Bills get a big, and I mean a big victory up against the Kansas City Chiefs.

That is one of the craziest things that I've ever seen in the history of sports hot ticket. What do you do for 30 hours in the car? It's a lot of time. Sleep.

But how much sleep can you get? I mean, look, he's rich. So, you know, I'm sure it's not, you know, a small car he's getting. But how big is it? Like, how big is the car? Even like a minivan. Can you really sleep in a minivan like the way the seats move? And still, how much time are you going to sleep? Yeah, I don't know. Do you even like bring your family along for that trip for 15 hours?

I hope not. Yeah. If you're the family and you want to go to the game, catching a flight.

See you there. So that's a long. Now they won. So the drive home is not bad. Do you imagine they lost and they have to take a 15 hour car ride?

Miserable. I'm assuming left after the game, right? You would think. Yeah. So he's not driving out a car service. Right. But I'm just saying, like, so you leave at like 9 p.m. and you got to drive 15. That's how much you think that costs.

That's a car service. He has all the money in the world. Also, you got to think the bill has got to pick up that tab, right? Yeah, you would think so.

You can't allow it if he's going to. I would imagine I would think the Pegula family would be a first class organization and pick up the the tab there. I mean, is it crazy?

I don't know. It's like ten thousand dollars total, like 30 hours. I don't know how many miles it is, but that's a long trip. So from New York City to Kansas City, it would be 19 hours and 38 minutes. It's according to Google, one thousand one hundred and ninety three and a half miles.

Should I just open up my Uber and see what it would cost? What the hell? Three forty five Hudson Street to let's just go Arrowhead Stadium, right? G E H A at Arrowhead Stadium. Is that what it's called? Yeah. Oh, I just I just noticed Arrowhead Stadium sponsors sponsors pay. Let's see.

I I wonder if I'd even like compute. It's four minutes away. Oh, you better hit. OK.

It's not showing a price. Smart. That's one of those. And you negotiate with the driver when you get in the car.

It's there's nothing to do. And you show up and it's hey, we're a 19 hour drive. Don't you just say no. I'm sure not. Most, you know, most are not prepared. You're not going through Uber.

I'm sure it's like one of those most services. Clearly. But I'm just trying to see. I'm going to Twitter search Poyer Uber and see if anything pops up in terms of a price.

No, nothing yet. It doesn't. Oh, my God. Just looking at the map and how they have to zoom all the way out so you could just kind of see how far this trip would go on the way that it looks like on the map. It makes it looks like it's like a forty five minute drive.

But we clearly know that's not the case. Fifteen hours. I don't even know what you do. Like, what's the longest car trip that you've ever gone on? Twelve hours. Mine was, I think, Philadelphia to Notre Dame. I've done I've done New York to Indianapolis. You know, I've done the Buffalo, New York City. That's not that terrible.

It's five minutes away now. Yeah, it won't it won't show me a price. You think if I try Lyft, it would be any different or you think it's going to be the same thing where it just can't compute it? I would guess price endings.

Also, those they're not built for. Yes. Nineteen hour requests. No. Yeah. One hundred percent. Let's just see one more.

Oh, well, I don't want to go to the airport in Kansas City because then that I don't want to I don't want to put anything right. Press confirm. And it's like, oh, your driver was on on the on its way.

And then you get charged like 10 percent of it because 10 percent of that. May have to be trying to find a new job. All right. Here we go. We would get there by eight forty four a.m. if we left right now, according to to this on a move in twelve hours. But I've been but that can't be right. There's no way we get there at eight forty four a.m.

It's still not showing me the price of whatever. That's the one of the most bad ass things I've ever seen. Deshaun Watson is something similar a few years ago as well. Took like a bus from Houston to Jacksonville. Did he really? Yes. Because there's I forget the I don't think it was a collapse along, but it's something where I guess there's swelling when it comes to flying.

And they're afraid that the swelling would exacerbate whatever injury is dealing with. Took a bus. Twelve hours and thirty eight minutes on the quick search Houston to Jacksonville.

So poor gets the advantage next an extra six hours total round trip in the car. Good for him. Tougher guy. Am I crazy to say this? Yeah, I'm inactive. I'll enjoy the time in Buffalo by myself. I'm no doctor.

I'm just say that. So I don't know exactly what a collapsed lung entails. How do you breathe? Let alone run as fast as you can and catch your breath and play every single step.

Sit in a car for 15. Like all you're saying is logical and crazy. The fact that he played in the game is nuts. But the fact that you're willing to sit 15 hours there, 15 hours back to play a football game, not playoff game. I get it's a big game.

Bills, Chiefs. Awesome. But that's wild. Like I respect it, but it's also crazy.

I would not be doing that. That's why I don't have the mentality and the drive. Like, for example, it's not the talents.

It's not the size. It's just I'm not tough enough. Let's say and I know that distance wise it's it's far farther. But let's just say when we go to radio row this year at the Super Bowl, I have a collapsed lung and I can't fly.

And I like Zach. You got to get there. It's a Super Bowl.

You can hire a car service and drive. I'd be like, you guys are lost. Get a fill in. OK, I don't care that it's Super Bowl week. Radio is my favorite event that of the year.

Have Hickey host the show for five days. I'm not driving. Imagine that ride home to like the ride there. There's excitement. OK, you're looking forward to the game.

You're getting prepared. Ride back. I think this is a pleasant ride back because they won. You're right. You're right. In this example of radio row, per se.

Yeah, sure. Long week. Tired.

It's a long drive. By the way, two coaches right now that I think I don't want to say that they're in danger of losing their job because I don't think Matt Lafleur is going anywhere. But he's starting to show you maybe a little bit overrated when you don't have Devante Adams and Aaron Rodgers played MVP type level.

And also, here's something else. Maybe everyone knocking Lafleur. And I've always been skeptical to put him in the top 10 as a head coach until this year. I put him in at number 10 because he had a guy like Bruce Arians retire. Sean Payton is now no longer coaching.

So it opened up some spots. How much of this is because when things are going great, I don't want to give the floor an ample amount of credit. So when things are going bad, he's not the first guy that you could just criticize and blast. That's all an Aaron Rodgers. I wonder how much audible is going on. How many times do you think Lafleur is given the play or the place coming down? And Rodgers goes, yeah, we're not doing that.

I'm Aaron Rodgers. That's something I love to know the answer to. It sounds like it happened a lot in the final year or so of Mike McCarthy when he was there.

That's a great question. He was getting massages in the team meeting room, supposedly. Well, you don't have to call the plays because basically Aaron Rodgers. He was getting massages in a private room when there was actual team meetings going on. Remember that?

The offensive game plan was getting constructed. There's Mike McCarthy. I don't need to be. If you're Mike McCarthy, Rodgers is going to change the play anyway.

What does it matter? I could use a hand in stone massage right now. My neck is a little tight. I got to get the kink out before Sunday. You want to crack my back a little bit?

Get the chops on the back. When was the last time you've gone for a massage? I've never gotten one. Yeah, I could see you being weird like that. I would love one.

I think it would be great. I don't know. Never like... Oh, that wasn't you. You weren't the one that was against getting a pedicure.

I think that was McKeon. I've gotten one pedicure in my life. I would go back. Yeah, very enjoyable.

Very enjoyable experience. So Lafleur, people start to look at him a little bit differently. Cliff Kingsbury, do you have a dumber organization than the Arizona Cardinals? I know Kyme and Kingsbury were entering the final years of their deal. You extend them to both 2027 through 2027. Like I would say you don't want a lame duck contract, lame duck coach, lame duck GM.

So you give them an extra year or two, a two-year extension. When they did that, though, they lost all their leverage to Kyler Murray. And Kyler Murray's like, this is the guy that drafted me. This is the coach that coaches me. I'm not going to get my money. And when you're a good quarterback, you get paid great quarterback money.

You could not... Well, you could have gotten off to a worse start. But this is a pretty brutal start for the Arizona Cardinals. They don't even have any life offensively.

And there's no adjustment. There's no creativity by Cliff Kingsbury. It's almost as if he's just saying, Kyler Murray, here you go. We're paying you $47 million. It's all on you. Go make a play. Go run around and make a play.

The video games that we don't want you to play, go be a video game on the field. That's what it's been like watching the Arizona Cardinals on offense. And maybe it starts to change a little bit with DeAndre Hopkins coming back because we know how imperative he is. But this Cardinals team, let's just call for what it is. Looks bad right now. Really bad. And I'm not expecting them to make the playoffs this year.

I'll ask the question I've asked before. No. Cliff on the hot seat. No, because they just extended him.

I get it. I think he'll get one more year and they'll give some lame ass excuse. Oh, well, DeAndre Hopkins out for six weeks because he elected to use substances he wasn't supposed to use.

He should be. They did fire Steve Wilkes after one year and got rid of Josh Rosen. So they have made. Yeah, but they doubled down on Kingsbury. They already doubled down on Kingsbury. They just gave him an extension to 2027. This wasn't like you hired him five year deal and it's his first year as a coach. You're like, oh, they already seen him enough and believed in him to give him that deal. And Steve Keim could do no wrong in that organization with all that he's done. And they just extended him as well. And I've always thought Steve Keim has been overrated.

So I think they'll give him one more year. But, man, this is a disaster. Big time disaster. Onside's offside next. Five questions, five answers.
