STAMFORD, Conn. – December 24, 2013 – This week’s installment of NFL Turning Point features Broncos QB Peyton Manning’s record-breaking performance in Houston, highlights Panthers QB Cam Newton’s heroics against the Saints, and breaks down the Patriots’ dominant win in Baltimore, with a new episode tomorrow night at 11 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
NFL Turning Point, hosted by Football Night In America’s Dan Patrick, examines a Week 16 that saw teams like the Broncos, Panthers and Patriots solidify their positions heading into the postseason.
NFL Turning Point begins with Manning’s four-touchdown performance in a 37-13 win over the Texans, in which the Denver QB reached 51 touchdown passes for the season, breaking Tom Brady’s single-season record (50) set in 2007. Manning, who was wired for sound in the game, threw three of his four touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, as the Broncos moved one step closer to solidifying home-field advantage in the AFC.
The episode reviews Sunday’s clash between the Saints and Panthers, with the NFC South division lead at stake. NFL Turning Point highlights the effect torrential rains had on both teams, and how the Saints have struggled on the road this season. NFL Turning Point examines the New Orleans’ defense, which had allowed 10 points over the game’s first 59 minutes, until Newton led Carolina down the field for the go-ahead touchdown with just 23 seconds remaining.
The program will also review the Patriots’ decisive 41-7 victory over the Ravens in Baltimore, clinching the AFC East title for New England. NFL Turning Point focuses on how the Patriots defense held QB Joe Flacco and the Baltimore offense to seven points, as the Patriots avenged their loss to the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game last season.
This week’s episode will also feature audio from Eagles LB Trent Cole from Philadelphia’s 54-11 rout of the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football.
