We are back once again to talk about what’s going on in the NFL.

After this, we go through Round

Robin style and rank the teams 1 to 32 on who has the best chance to win the Super Bowl during the 2016 season. Will the Broncos repeat again? Could the Patriots bounce back?

Football 2 the MAX: Zach Mettenberger Released & burning NFL questions

We are starting to hit that lull in the off-season, where not a whole lot is really happening. There is some news to talk about though and we cover as much as we can of it.

Zach Mettenberger has been released by the Titans, we discuss if he has any potential landing spots, there’s some injury news, as Shaq Lawson has to have shoulder surgery and may not be ready to start the season, Sammy Watkins also has a broken bone in his foot as well. The Atlanta Falcons made some waves with their

possibly cheaply priced concessions, Jason Jones signs with the Dolphins and Anquan Boldin could go to the Titans.

We also keep things going with our burning questions on some NFL teams. What questions do we ask? Tune in to find out.

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 14 Recap, NY Giants vs. Dolphins MNF Post-Game, & TNF Preview

We kick things off with a short post-game for the Monday Night Football shootout between the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins (6:05-18:45.) Have the Giants finally found their groove? Is the Miami Dolphins defense overrated? And what now for the Dolphins now that they are done in the playoffs race.

Then we get into the main portion of the program with our NFL Week 14 Recap (18:45-2:06:00,) where we discuss what led to the win, what led to the loss for each game, analyze some tough decisions, and answer questions about the teams that matter. Plus another look at the crazy NFL playoff race in both conferences too. (We do have a call-in during the middle of this that calls to talk about his Buffalo Bills from 58:45-1:14:30. So that's why the Recap portion went a little longer than normal.)

Finally, we end things with a preview for the Thursday Night Football game between the Tampa Bay Bucs and the St. Louis Rams (2:06:00-2:12:50.)

Gary has his Fantasy Football Playoff waiver wire pickups  and we have our Top 5 Power Rankings and the Player of the Week as well. (2:12:50-End)
