STAMFORD, Conn. – October 11, 2016 – This week’s all-new edition of NFL Turning Point, debuting Thursday at 2:30 a.m. ET / Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. PT on NBCSN, shines a spotlight on the New England Patriots’ matchup with the Cleveland Browns and studies QB Tom Brady’s season debut.
In addition, the show takes an in-depth look at the performances of Dallas Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott against the Cincinnati Bengals; examines this past Sunday’s matchup between the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens; and reviews the Indianapolis Colts’ win over the Chicago Bears, featuring in-game audio from head coach Chuck Pagano.
Hosted by Football Night In America’s Dan Patrick, the 30-minute long NFL Turning Point, co-produced by NFL Films, airs weekly throughout the entire NFL season, including the playoffs and Super Bowl.
This week’s episode includes:
- Patriots – Browns: NFL Films analyzes Brady’s 28 completions on 40 pass attempts for 406 yards and three touchdowns, and examines how the Patriots QB returned from suspension and picked up right where he left off. The segment also highlights how Brady’s return marked a turning point for the team.
- Bengals – Cowboys: NFL Turning Point breaks down the performances of the Cowboys’ rookies, and highlights how Prescott’s 227 passing yards and Elliott’s 134 rushing yards on Sunday helped lead Dallas to their fourth straight win of the season. In addition, the segment takes a look at how Elliott’s 60-yard touchdown in the third quarter put the game out of reach for the Bengals.
- Redskins – Ravens: The segment studies the strong performance by the Redskins’ special teams unit, and reviews Ravens LB J. Mosley’s interception return that was ultimately called a fumble and resulted in a touchback.
- Bears – Colts: NFL Turning Point examines the overall matchup and analyzes QB Andrew Luck’s game-winning touchdown to WR Y. Hilton late in the fourth quarter.
Wednesday night’s Sounds of The Game – Powered by BOSE – segment will feature the Best of NFL Films Week 5 wires, including audio from the Giants’ matchup with the Packers on Sunday Night Football.
Each week NFL Turning Point is built around select NFL matchups from the previous weekend, and focuses on the crucial “turning point” moments that ultimately defined the outcome of each game. The show also features anatomy-of-a-play type segments and long-form game-of-the-week style narratives that include pre-game and post-game access, sideline sounds, jaw-dropping cinematography and incredible storytelling that is synonymous with NFL Films.
During the 2016-17 season NBCSN will air a total of 21 NFL Turning Point episodes. The season finale, scheduled to air on Wednesday, February 8, 2017, will look back at the “turning point” of Super Bowl LI.
