New Episode of NBCSN'S NFL TURNING POINT Airs Today
NBCSN's in-depth coverage of the 2013 NFL season continues tonight with new episodes of FNIA Coach's Clicker at 6 p.m. ET and NFL Turning Point at 11 p.m. ET.
FNIA Coach's Clicker, NBCSN's weekly half-hour NFL studio show hosted by Liam McHugh with Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy and two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, will preview and examine the pivotal matchups in Week 13, including Seahawks-49ers, Bears-Cowboys, Lions-Eagles, and the Panthers-Saints showdown on Sunday Night Football.
FNIA Coach's Clicker will break down this weekend's Sunday Night Football game, as Carolina and New Orleans battle for first place in the NFC South. Dungy and Harrison will examine the contrasting styles of Panthers QB Cam Newton and Saints QB Drew Brees, and how Panthers WR Ted Ginn Jr. and Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan could be X-factors in Sunday night's game. In addition, the episode will dissect the play of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, and analyze how the Seattle defense will defend 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. Coach's Clicker will also study the key roles Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and Bears RB Matt Forte play in their teams' offenses, and highlight the athleticism of Lions WR Calvin Johnson and Eagles RB LeSean McCoy.
NFL Turning Point, hosted by Football Night In America's Dan Patrick, will look back at Week 13 in the NFL and focus on the crucial "turning point" moments that ultimately defined the outcome of some of the week's most-watched contests.
This week's episode of NFL Turning Point reviews last week's AFC West clash between the Broncos and Chiefs. The program analyzes how Kansas City QB Alex Smith and the Chiefs built a two-touchdown lead against the Broncos in the first half. The program then shows how the Broncos adjusted by shifting away from the running game, and how Denver QB Peyton Manning exploited the Chiefs secondary in the second half with big passing plays, including three touchdown passes WR Eric Decker, to come away with a 35-28 win.
The program also reviews Sunday's Cardinals-Eagles game. Turning Point studies Philadelphia's focus on finding its tight ends in the passing game, which combined for all three of the Eagles' touchdown receptions in the game. The episode also examines how the Cardinals made adjustments at halftime to stage a second-half comeback, which ultimately fell short after Cardinals S Tyrann Mathieu's holding penalty negated Eagles QB Nick Foles' interception late in the fourth quarter.
This week's program will also feature audio from Colts DE Cory Redding, who was wired for sound during Indianapolis' 22-14 win over the Titans.
