6:43 am
girth, if you will and his strength to push the offensive lineman back into cutler. if can you bet those pressures, that is what you will get out of the haynesworth. >> the big play at the goal line just shows how big of a player he can be. >> he was mobile on that play. one guy as well, the sickest interception we've seen. >> that is london fletcher? >> a great quote, by the way, just sick. a terrible decision to throw late with the floater. a one-handed pick. carlos rogers with the block here down the field. four interceptions, all in the second half. tying the nfl record, what else can you say about deangelo hall. that was one heck of a performance that he turned in. not only a game changer and a game saver but maybe a season saver. this were completely outplaying the bears, they let them hang around and deangelo hall said

6:48 am
the course of the year and the sun is setting a little further and further south of the equator. >> so would new york be earlier because it is further east or north? >> their sunrise is earlier than our sunrise. their sunrise is at 7:18 and our is at 7:28. make sense? >> all right. >> that is the bottom line. for the winter equinox, their sun sets at 4:20 and ours sets at 4:28. >> if you go out to ohio or somewhere, would it be even later. >> the sun would set a little bit later. just a little. couple of minutes later. >> hope i answered your question for you. >> glad you had an easy one since tony wasn't here. >> i like to hold off on the hard ones for tony. >> beautiful picture of the sunrise this morning. >> if you have a question you
