This week’s episode features:
- Panthers-Seahawks: NFL Turning Point examines the fourth quarter of the matchup and breaks down how the Seahawks lost their 23-14 lead with less than five minutes left in the game. The segment highlights the play of Panthers QB Cam Newton and shines a spotlight on Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen’s game-winning touchdown.
- Patriots-Colts: NFL Films analyzes Sunday’s AFC Championship rematch between New England and Indianapolis, highlights TE Rob Gronkowski’s third quarter touchdown and how it gave momentum to the Patriots, and examines the Colts’ failed trick play in the fourth quarter.
- Cardinals-Steelers: NFL Turning Point reviews the performance of Steelers QB Landry Jones, who stepped in for an injured Michael Vick and led the Steelers to a victory over the Cardinals. The segment analyzes Jones’ first career NFL game, and studies the two touchdown passes he threw to WR Martavis Bryant.
In addition, Wednesday night’s Sounds of The Game – Powered by BOSE – segment studies Chargers QB Philip Rivers performance as he set a franchise single-game record for completions, attempts and yards, in San Diego’s game against Green Bay.
Each week NFL Turning Point is built around select NFL matchups from the previous weekend, and focuses on the crucial “turning point” moments that ultimately defined the outcome of each game. The show also features anatomy-of-a-play type segments and long-form game-of-the-week style narratives that include pre-game and post-game access, sideline sounds, jaw-dropping cinematography and incredible storytelling that is synonymous with NFL Films.
In 2015 NBCSN will air a total of 21 episodes. The season finale, scheduled to air on Wednesday, February 4, 2016, will look back at the “turning point” of Super Bowl 50.
