Stamford, Conn. – October 28, 2014 – Wednesday night’s all new edition of NFL Turning Point, NBCSN’s Emmy Award-nominated weekly NFL show co-produced by NFL Films, will feature in-depth analysis of some of Week 8’s most compelling matchups, including the New Orleans Saints upset over the Green Bay Packers. Airing tomorrow night at 10:30 p.m. ET, the episode will also review the key moments that defined the Eagles-Cardinals, Falcons-Lions and Bengals–Ravens contests.

In addition, NFL Turning Point will bring viewers inside an NFL film study session with Miami Dolphins DE Cameron Wake.

Hosted by Football Night In America’s Dan Patrick, the hour-long program will air throughout the entire NFL season, including the playoffs and Super Bowl.

This week’s episode features:

  • Packers-Saints:  NFL Turning Point analyzes the matchup between Saints QB Drew Brees and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and the key moments that allowed New Orleans to upset Green Bay. The segment reviews the performances of Saints WR Brandin Cooks and TE Jimmy Graham, and also studies how the momentum of the game changed after Rodgers injured his hamstring.
  • Eagles-Cardinals: NFL Films reviews the matchup between two of the league’s top teams, and showcases how QB Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals were able to stage a game-winning drive in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.
  • Falcons-Lions: NFL Turning Point breaks down the final minutes of the Falcons–Lions game at Wembley Stadium in London, England. NFL Films reviews how the Falcons  clock management, and the delay of game penalty against Detroit, allowed the Lions to come back and win the game.
  • Ravens-Bengals: NFL Turning Point highlights the play of Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu, and reviews how he and QB Andy Dalton connected throughout the game, including the 53-yard pass in the fourth quarter to set up the game-winning touchdown.
  • Cameron Wake: NFL Films conducts an exclusive film study with Miami Dolphins DE Cameron Wake, in which Wake discusses some key moves and techniques that allow him to excel at his position.


Each week Emmy-nominated 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 the pre-game and post-game access, sideline sounds, jaw-dropping cinematography and incredible storytelling that is synonymous with NFL Films.

In 2014 NBCSN will air a total of 22 episodes, running throughout the entire NFL season, including the playoffs and Super Bowl. The season finale, scheduled to air on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, will look back at the turning point of Super Bowl XLIX.
