Rich discussed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s appearance in the box of Dallas Cowboy’s Owner Jerry Jones and the tension between New York Mayor Bill De Blasio and the city’s police department. He talked with Dr. Anthony Tobia who uses Seinfeld characters in his psychiatry class at Rutgers, Tim Smith, the attorney for a teacher in New Jersey who denies having sex with a student, and North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones.
New Jersey’s Eagles and Giants fans cringed once again Sunday as Governor Chris Christie embraced Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during the team’s first round playoff victory on Sunday.
Twitter is abuzz again about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and his beloved Dallas Cowboys.
Arguably the Cincinnati Bengals’ best player, wide receiver A.J. Green is iffy for Sunday’s playoff game in Indianapolis against the Colts. He didn’t practice on Friday and hasn’t cleared the league’s concussion protocol after suffering the injury in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Green can’t go, the pressure might double for the Bengals to win their first postseason contest since 1990.
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won an NFL playoff game since January 6, 1990. They beat the Houston Oilers—right there, that tells you it was a long time ago—by a 41-14 score in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs. Since then, the Bengals have lost all five postseason contests they’ve played in. That needs to change this weekend.
The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
Mayor Nutter says what probably bothered Eagles fans most was not that Governor Christie was rooting for his team, the Cowboys, but that he seemed to be flaunting it on national television.
Councilman Jim Kenney was fuming that Gov. Christie sat with the owner of the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field during Sunday night’s Eagles game.
The Eagles and Cowboys will meet for the second time in 17 days this Sunday night at the Linc. The Eagles routed the Cowboys in Dallas on Thanksgiving, 33-10, and dominated in all three phases of the game. Despite the domination in Dallas, players such as Jeremy Maclin are ready for a tougher challenge in the rematch.
The Dallas Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears last night 41-28. Chicago scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make it look respectable, but a 21-0 third quarter for Dallas essentially sealed this one.
The Cowboys advanced to 9-4 with a 41-28 win over the Bears.
These two teams meet tonight at Soldier Field in what should be a high-scoring game. There are plenty of fantasy points on the board here.
The Cowboys are 8-4, but if the season ended today they would not be in the playoffs. After Thursday’s visit to Chicago, they go to Philadelphia, host Indianapolis, and finish at Washington.
The Eagles’ victory on Thanksgiving earned some people in the area a free cheesesteak Friday.
