Stamford, Conn. – October 8, 2013 – NBCSN’s in-depth coverage of the 2013 NFL season continues on Wednesday night with new episodes of FNIA Coach’s Clicker at 6:30 p.m. ET and NFL Turning Point at 10 p.m. ET.
FNIA Coach’s Clicker, NBCSN’s new weekly half-hour NFL studio show that dovetails off of Football Night in America, will provide an in-depth Xs-and-Os preview of the biggest games coming up in Week 6 of the season. FNIA Coach’s Clicker host Liam McHugh will be joined by Super Bowl-winning head coach Tony Dungy and two-time Super Bowl winner Rodney Harrison, who will preview this week’s Sunday Night Football matchup between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys. In addition, Dungy and Harrison will look ahead to Saints-Patriots, Packers-Ravens, and Titans-Seahawks.
FNIA Coach’s Clicker also analyzes Redskins QB Robert Griffin III’s altered throwing mechanics, following off-season knee surgery. Harrison and Dungy review video of Griffin’s throwing motion before and after surgery, and point out how Griffin’s efforts to protect his knee have thrown his mechanics out of sync. In addition, Dungy and Harrison examine the impact of New Orleans head coach Sean Payton’s return to the sidelines, and the effect on Saints’ QB Drew Brees.
NFL Turning Point, hosted by Football Night In America’s Dan Patrick, will take a look back at Week 5 in the NFL and focus on the crucial “turning point” moments that ultimately defined the outcome of the Broncos-Cowboys and Seahawks-Colts.
This week’s episode of NFL Turning Point will also include two spotlight features. The first looks at Saints head coach Sean Payton and the team’s offense. The segment is highlighted by in-game audio from Payton during the Saints-Dolphins game on Monday Night Football.
NFL Turning Point also studies the Patriots-Bengals game this past Sunday. The segment examines how the Bengals defense stopped Tom Brady and kept him out of the end zone, which ultimately ended his record for consecutive games with a touchdown thrown.
