“The 2020 season isn’t art. It’s an endurance test.” – King on the impact of COVID on the NFL season
“The forfeit concept doesn’t seem like it’s going to be a part of the game. Lots of issues with it, even if a team suffers some positive tests by ignoring strict adherence to protocols.” – King on possible COVID-related forfeits
“Amazing to see that the 12-week AFC wild cards would be Cleveland, Miami and Indy – just ahead of Baltimore, Las Vegas, New England.” – King on the playoff picture
“The more I watch Henry, the more I think he’s got the physicality and the hole-picking of Earl Campbell. What power, and what balance.” – King on Titans RB Derrick Henry
STAMFORD, Conn. – Nov. 30, 2020 – Peter King discusses where the NFL stands in the COVID-impacted 2020 season in this week’s edition of Football Morning in America, available now exclusively on NBCSports.com. King also hands out his weekly awards, discusses the news and notes from around the league in Week 12, and remembers late Dallas Cowboys coach Markus Paul.
Across NBC Sports this week, Peacock’s weekday block of NFL programming from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. ET includes PFT Live featuring Mike Florio and Chris Simms live at 7 a.m. ET, followed by The Dan Patrick Show at 9 a.m. ET, The Rich Eisen Show at Noon ET, Brother From Another, with Michael Holley and Michael Smith, at 3 p.m. ET, and PFT PM at 5 p.m. ET. On Monday, Safety Blitz, featuring Rodney Harrison and Jac Collinsworth, streams at 6 p.m. ET, and Chris Simms Unbuttoned streams at 6 p.m. ET Tuesday-Friday. ProFootballTalk.com continues to provide the latest offseason news, and the Rotoworld Football Podcast and Chris Simms Unbuttoned podcast discuss Week 12.
The following are highlights from this week’s edition of Football Morning in America:
King on the 2020 season: “79 games left. Eyes on the prize. Eyes on 256, then 13 in the playoffs. Delays only mean more days to swab out positive tests. The 2020 season isn’t art. It’s an endurance test.”
King on Week 12 COVID storylines: “A head coach and two GMs were fired in a 28-hour span over the weekend, but COVID events blew those three headliners away. Baltimore being down 20 players going to Pittsburgh; Denver suddenly losing all four quarterbacks to COVID protocols…and the 49ers being told suddenly they were being booted out of their home because of county protocols and forced to find a new place to play.”
King on the NFL season: “The football’s been good, mostly. You know what’s struck me? Some of the best games have been played under pretty tough circumstances…Scoring’s up, penalties are down. Players seem happier not beating themselves up as much in practice.”
Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster to King: “The thing with virtual that helps a lot – it gives us time to be separated, to stay at home in our own comfortable space, avoiding COVID and also gives us time to rest our bodies, or do treatment while we’re in meetings. As far as my teammates and how we like it, so far we love it.”
King on the possibility of COVID-related forfeits: “The forfeit concept doesn’t seem like it’s going to be a part of the game. Lots of issues with it, even if a team suffers some positive tests by ignoring strict adherence to protocols. If a game’s not played, does the perpetrating team get a loss in the standings, and does its foe that week get a win just for having the good fortune of being on the schedule that week?”
King on Ravens-Steelers being postponed twice: “The changes were due to the virus infecting several players and staff members, and then not slowing down in time to play either Thursday or Sunday in the league’s estimation…I’ve been told the Ravens are okay with taking their medicine. They’d prefer, of course, to switch the game to Jan. 10, but also realize they don’t have much of a leg to stand on.”
REMEMBERING MARKUS PAUL
King on Paul: “I didn’t know Markus Paul, the Dallas strength and conditioning coordinator who died last Wednesday after suffering a medical emergency on the job Tuesday morning. But I’m blown away by the league-wide tributes to the man and the player (the man mostly)…Something about the tenor of hurt upon his death made me sad that I never got to meet or know Paul.”
Daryl Johnston, Paul’s teammate at Syracuse, to King: “As captains, I was the emotional one, he was the calm one. He was the voice of reason everyone went to…He was so great at disarming any situation with a huge smile and his voice of reason. I can tell you that most of the guys on that team really had Markus up on a pedestal and felt like I did: ‘Why can’t I be more like Markus?’”
Scott Pioli, a Syracuse graduate assistant when Paul played, to King: “I’ve been around football for a long time now. This might sound amazing because of my years in New England, but Markus and Daryl Johnston were the best two football captains, together, I’ve ever been around…Markus always talked people into doing the right thing.”
Michael Strahan, who played under Paul on the Giants, to King: “Markus just touched you. There was so much of him you admired. The smile, how he soothed you. We’ll miss him…[voice trailing off] Miss him.”
Cowboys DB Jourdan Lewis to King: “I’m just messed up right now. I was so close to him. He was more than just a coach. He taught me how to be a better athlete. But we’d finish lifting and a few us would just sit there, maybe for an hour or more, and listen to his stories. They were about football and his career, but also about life.”
WEEK 12 NEWS & NOTES
King on the current AFC playoff picture: “Amazing to see that the 12-week AFC wild cards would be Cleveland, Miami and Indy – just ahead of Baltimore, Las Vegas, New England.”
King on the Titans: “I think there are days, and Sunday was one of them, when I think Tennessee could beat Kansas City or Pittsburgh to reach the Super Bowl.”
King on the Buccaneers and Falcons: “Two very big things may depend on Tampa’s two meetings with Atlanta in the final three weeks of the season: a playoff berth for the Bucs, and the realistic chances of Raheem Morris to get the full-time gig with the Falcons.”
King on the field of available general managers: “Sense I get from conversations with two veteran team executives over the weekend: The field of general managers is better than the field of coaches.”
King on Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky: “If the Bears want to afford him one or two more chances that, pressed to the wall, he can discover something no one’s seen since 2018, I guess their mammoth investment in him is worth it. But it’s over for Trubisky in Chicago, barring a Hail Mary.”
King on the NFC East: “That Daniel Jones hamstring injury did not look good for the Giants. Nor did Colt McCoy in relief. With Washington about to embark on a three-week dungstorm of a schedule (at Pittsburgh, at San Francisco, Seattle), my guess is six wins takes the NFC East.”
King on the Jaguars: “Jaguars fire GM Dave Caldwell. That’s all? … Coming within 10 minutes of a Super Bowl in 2017, allowed Caldwell to hang around this long. A matter of time before the same fate befalls coach Doug Marrone.”
King on the Lions: “Nothing should be off the table for the moribund Lions, including divorcing Matthew Stafford. I’m not positive it should happen, but it’s crazy to say to new coach/GM candidates: You’ve got to keep Stafford…The simple fact is that sometimes in football, a franchise needs to be blown up.”
King on the Texans’ next head coach: “Though it’s a factor that the front office is in shambles and they’ll be at a major draft disadvantage with first and second-round picks in 2021 traded away, Deshaun Watson is a fantastic magnet. In the midst of all the Houston mayhem, Watson’s having his best year.”
KING’S WEEK 12 AWARDS
Offensive Players of the Week: Tyreek Hill, Kansas City, Derrick Henry, Tennessee, Deshaun Watson, Houston, & Antonio Gibson, Washington.
King on Henry: “The more I watch Henry, the more I think he’s got the physicality and the hole-picking of Earl Campbell. What power, and what balance.”
Defensive Players of the Week: Jeremy Chinn, Carolina, Joey Bosa, Los Angeles Chargers, Jimmie Ward, San Francisco, & Jabal Sheard, New York Giants.
King on Chinn: “What’s that saying about every time you watch a game you’ll see something you never saw before? Pretty sure the two-TDs-in-two-defensive-plays qualifies. What a day for Chinn in the awful 28-27 loss: 13 tackles too.”
Special Teams Players of the Week: Brandon Wilson, Cincinnati, & D.J. Wonnum, Minnesota.
King on Wilson: “For the second season in a row, Wilson, a sixth-round safety from Houston drafted in 2017, returned a kickoff for a touchdown…That single play kept the undermanned Bengals in the game.”
Coach of the Week: Arthur Smith, Tennessee (offensive coordinator).
King: “Remember the story I told you about Smith from training camp? GM Jon Robinson told me, “He zigs when the defense zags.” Such an apt description of Smith.”

“What he did wrong is he’s not Deshaun Watson and he’s not Patrick Mahomes. I think everybody holds that against him.” – Tony Dungy on Mitchell Trubisky
“You have to get back to doing what’s comfortable for Tom Brady. It’s not about Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich.” – Rodney Harrison on the Buccaneers offense
“The Patriots mystique strikes once again. They’re not out of it.” – Chris Simms
“Holiday season is basically Derrick Henry season. He heats up in November and December.” – Ahmed Fareed
STAMFORD, Conn. – Nov. 29, 2020 – NBC Sports’ presentation of Week 12 of the 2020 NFL season began tonight from Lambeau Field with Football Night in America leading into coverage of Bears-Packers on Sunday Night Football on NBC.
Ahmed Fareed hosted FNIA from NBC Sports Group’s Studio 1 in Stamford, Conn., and was joined by two-time Super Bowl-winner Rodney Harrison and former NFL quarterback Chris Simms. NFL Insider Mike Florio joined Football Night remotely from his home studio. Jac Collinsworth co-hosted the show from Lambeau Field and was joined by Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Dungy, who was on site to call Sunday Night Football.
In addition, former Bears QB Jim McMahon narrated a piece about the history of Bears-Packers and Collinsworth interviewed Packers WR Davante Adams pre-game.
Mike Tirico (play-by-play), Dungy (analyst), Kathryn Tappen (sideline reporter) and Terry McAulay (rules analyst) are calling tonight’s Bears-Packers game.
Following are highlights from tonight’s edition of Football Night in America on NBC:
Dungy: “In order to win, the Bears need to run the football and believe it or not, Mitch Trubisky is going to help them run the ball. His mobility and the things he can do off play action are going to help those running backs.”
Dungy on Trubisky: “What he did wrong is he’s not Deshaun Watson and he’s not Patrick Mahomes. I think everybody holds that against him.”
Simms on Bears offense: “It’s not a quarterback problem. We wanted to blame Mitchell Trubisky – yes, he’s been underwhelming as a Top Five pick – but they brought in Nick Foles and the offense was still not good under his leadership…I think Trubisky’s legs and his running ability might be effective tonight.”
Harrison on Bears defense: “If I’m one of the leaders on the defense – Khalil Mack, Eddie Jackson – I’m going to my defense and saying, ‘We need to create two turnovers to give us an opportunity to win.’ Then I’m going to Mitchell Trubisky and I’m saying, ‘Do what you do, just don’t turn the ball over. Don’t mess it up and we can have a chance to win.’”
Simms on WR Davante Adams and Packers offense: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. They will wear it out. If you’re going to sit there and play one-on-one with Davante Adams, you better have some sort of plan to stop Aaron Rodgers getting the ball in this guy’s hands…they will play, ‘Our guy is better than your guy.’…they force you to have a plan to stop Davante Adams.
Harrison: “In order for them to get to the Super Bowl, it won’t be through (Aaron Rodgers). They have to redirect the offense back to Aaron Jones because he creates so many mismatches and he’s so dangerous, whether it’s receiving out of the backfield or going between the holes. You look at Alvin Kamara, you look at Christian McCaffrey, they give defenses fits because of how many things they can do.”
Simms: “If they want to get to the Super Bowl, they need another element besides Rodgers and Adams. They need that Aaron Jones presence we saw last year that helped them get to the NFC Championship Game.”
Harrison on WR Tyreek Hill: “How do you cover him one-on-one?”
Fareed: “Well, they didn’t.”
Simms: “They got it done as usual in Kansas City…all of the ways they used (Tyreek Hill) today were so impressive.”
Harrison: “Why is (defensive coordinator) Todd Bowles playing man-to-man coverage with Tyreek Hill and no safety help? … I know he might be trying to challenge his guys, but you’ve got to put them in a situation to be successful. I don’t know one cornerback in the NFL that can guard this guy one-on-one…you’ve got to make adjustments.”
Harrison: “When I look at Bruce Arians, he has to understand that this is not about Bruce Arians. You have to do what is comfortable for Tom Brady. Tom Brady is comfortable running the football, play action pass, occasional trick play, quick passes out of the backfield – you have to get back to doing what’s comfortable for Tom Brady. It’s not about Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich.”
Simms: “You can be happy and say, ‘We didn’t have to rely on our passing game to win a game.’ Their defense showed up. It’s been better as of late and I think it can help them if they want to win a few games in the playoffs.”
Harrison: “Josh Allen can’t throw for 300 yards every single week. It was good to see them commit to running the football because you don’t want to be one-dimensional going into the playoffs.”
Simms: “And Josh Allen will make the plays, we know that. But it’s good to see them with a different type of style.”
Harrison on the Patriots: “I was really impressed by Bill Belichick and his game plan. Don’t forget about those Patriots. It was an old-school game plan. Special teams, defense did a great job and held Kyler Murray to just 31 yards rushing.”
Simms: “The Patriots mystique strikes once again. They’re not out of it…Can’t count them out yet.”
Harrison: “There was a sense of urgency when they were playing defense. They were flying around, they’re communicating, they’re making plays. That’s the Patriots defense that we’re used to seeing.”
Fareed: “Every week we’re just about to write off the Patriots, but you can’t do it.”
Simms: “Never. Never die.”
Simms on 49ers-Rams: “The 49ers have got their number. The Shanahan-McVay rivalry is real.”
Simms on DL Aaron Donald: “He’s insane. It’s every week. He’s the best defensive player in football.”
Simms: “Rodney thinks the Saints are the best defense in football and it’s hard to argue that over the last few weeks.”
Florio on why NFL didn’t postpone Saints-Broncos until Monday when some QBs could have played: “Strategic reasons are never going to prompt a postponement of a game. It’s only when there is an outbreak that has not yet been contained as is happening in Baltimore.”
Harrison: “Do you think the Raiders have been reading the papers?”
Simms: “I do. ‘Yeah, you guys were great. You’re almost as good as Kansas City.’ No. ‘Negative, Ghost Rider’ as we saw today…this offensive line is the strength of the Raiders team…they did not come to play. They couldn’t protect Derek Carr.”
Harrison: “The thing that was most disappointing to me was the effort level. You shake your head…we saw them do things that we haven’t seen them do, turning the ball over…they just need to get back to playing humble football.”
Simms: “They were asleep at the wheel. Derek Carr made mistakes we haven’t seen him make all year long.”
Dungy on RB Derrick Henry: “Two words – dump truck. It was Derrick Henry. Three starters missing from the Colts’ front seven including their best run-stopper, DeForest Buckner, and the Titans had no mercy. They just unleashed Derrick Henry over and over again. He pounded them inside and outside.”
Collinsworth: “Does head coach Mike Vrabel get enough credit for what he’s building in Nashville?”
Dungy replying to Collinsworth: “I don’t think he does. He’s done a tremendous job changing their attitude and changing their culture. He’s built a physical team, a team of no excuses, and I love watching them play.”
Simms on WR A.J. Brown: “A.J. Brown is quietly becoming one of the best receivers in the NFL.”
Simms on RB Derrick Henry: “It’s just amazing – how big he is, the speed and the change of direction for that size, and nobody wants to tackle him. I wouldn’t sign up for tackling him, I know that.”
Fareed on Henry: “Holiday season is basically Derrick Henry season. He heats up in November and December.”
Harrison on WR Corey Davis: “This is the guy that I’m really excited about. I think he can be a No. 1 receiver, just give him some more opportunities.”
Simms on Browns’ decision to go for it on fourth down late in the game: “Why? Can we kick a field goal and go up by two scores? … I know everybody wants to be aggressive, but I would have liked to have seen a field goal here.”
Harrison: “Try to win the football game. That’s the most important thing.”
Harrison on Washington as his pick to win the NFC East: “I like the experienced quarterback with Alex Smith, they have a tough, hungry defense and they can run the football.”
Simms: “I was leaning Dallas before Thanksgiving, but I’m going with (Washington), too — Ron Rivera has been to a Super Bowl, Alex Smith, one of the better defenses in football, and one of the top pass-rushing defensive line units in football.”
Simms on Giants: “They rely on Daniel Jones’ legs to run and make plays for this offense…when he went out, the Giants’ defense really stepped up and helped them win this game…they’re playing good football.”
Harrison: “This Giants defense flies around…you’ve got to forget about the record, you look at the Giants defense, these guys play hard, they play physical and they play together. Joe Judge is doing a great job.”
Dungy on Falcons defense: “The Atlanta Falcons shut Josh Jacobs down. It was an incredible story. That was the biggest surprise of the day to me.”
Simms: “The Dolphins were controlling the football game, but let the Jets hang around…but, the Jets are the Jets and they’ll find a way.”
