8:53 pm
be a touch match up this wees. >> week 13 on the road, it is a tough three weeks for payton manning and if you did watch that game, his go to wide receiver got really beat up. now he is dealing with a concussion. so there's talk that maybe he won't be able to play against the patriots. and you know he wants to play, that's where he has played for several years. that's going to be an interesting game. >> how about the nfc east. >> they are in the hunt, to even win that division, will we go down to week 17? >> i think we will. let's rewind first, least some people are calling it, they bid the washington red skins which in my opinion that was a much win game for them. the red skins they are out. so that's first and
