NFL Turning Point Looks Back at 49ers-Saints and Chiefs-Broncos
Eagles QB Nick Foles and Head Coach Chip Kelly Wired For Sound
STAMFORD, Conn. – November 19, 2013 – NBCSN’s in-depth coverage of the 2013 NFL season continues Wednesday with new episodes of FNIA Coach’s Clicker at 5 p.m. ET and NFL Turning Point at midnight 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 examine the upcoming Sunday Night Football showdown between Broncos QB Peyton Manning and Patriots QB Tom Brady, who will face each other for the 14th time in their careers. Dungy and Harrison will also discuss the impact of Broncos WR Wes Welker, and the chemistry he has developed in his first season with Manning after spending six seasons as Brady’s favorite target.
FNIA Coach’s Clicker will study Cowboys-Giants, and look at how New York’s defense has flourished, while Dallas’ defense has struggled the past few weeks. In addition, the episode will look ahead to the upcoming Redskins-49ers matchup, featuring San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick and Washington QB Robert Griffin III.
NFL Turning Point, hosted by Football Night In America’s Dan Patrick, will look back at Week 11 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 breaks down the 49ers-Saints game, examining how the New Orleans defense consistently stopped San Francisco on third down and stifled the 49ers running game. The show dissects 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks’ personal foul penalty from his hit on Saints QB Drew Brees in the fourth quarter, and how the play negated 49ers LB Patrick Willis’ fumble recovery, giving the Saints new life on the drive that resulted in a game-tying field goal.
The program also reviews Sunday night’s Chiefs-Broncos game. Turning Point will analyze how the Broncos offensive line shut down the Chiefs pass rush, which did not register a hit on Peyton Manning in the game. The program also examines Kansas City QB Alex Smith, and whether he can make big plays down the stretch to win games for the Chiefs.
This week’s episode will spotlight Eagles QB Nick Foles and head coach Chip Kelly, who were both wired for sound during Sunday’s win against Washington.
