  • Weeden’s Cause: On the field, Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden has shown promise as the guy who can lead the Browns back to football relevance.

  • The Power of Momentum: In the last decade, Super Bowl-winning teams like the Giants, Packers, and Steelers have proved you don’t need to be 14-2 to win a Super Bowl. Just get hot at the right time and let momentum carry you to the Super Bowl.  Greg Garber consults with Ainissa Ramirez, a Yale University material scientist, to explain why momentum means something in the NFL.
  • Frank Caliendo:  The humorous segment has Caliendo playing ESPN host Bob Ley and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
