the 2:00 warning. >> cris: when drew brees gets it going, it is tough to stop. and thomas davis barely missed that one. you play that kind of the tampa two to where you are going to drop the middle linebacker, and earlier in game, it is craig robertson who had to chase ted end zone. and the saints in the same sort of thing, and when you are at the goal line, you don't want to back up too far, because drew brees gets it right in front of you. >> al: and ron rivera talking about having to finish games and here they are again putting themselves in the precarious position, and you are almost leaving it to the offense right now to get the first downs to take the all of the time off of the clock. >> cris: i think that you are going to see the saints bringing all kinds of pressure.
and you the pressure point of the fact that this game now is on the line. you go after them here. >> al: lutz to kick. that is joe webb back, and fozzy whittaker back there as well. from the goal line. webb. he slips. taken down at the 15 yard line. >> cris: big hit by shiloh keo. that is back on the 15 yard line, so we are talking about field position, and you know, going back to beginning of the game, and carolina had a couple of nice plays right off of the bat with some motion and going wide, and all of the different things, but some of those plays are really tough to run though when you are getting the feeling that you will be seeing at lot of pressure off of the edge. and the only reason that the
position, and a little afraid of man coverage here. >> al: panthers have had three straight three and outs. he throws, and that is errant. and a flag comes in though, and stupar is tangled up with jonathan stewart. carl johnson com this call. >> referee: no faoul on the pla. >> al: and so he was the head of officiating a few years ago and now he is the head linesman, and the flag is waived off. >> cris: it is a great job here by nathan stupar and you cannot have pass interference behind the line of scrimmage and that
to understand that. >> al: rivera are is pleading his case to no avail. second down and ten now. and it is nervous time in this ball park. newton is going to go nowhere. now you have third down. the saints are going to take a time-out. the 2:00 warning, and then of course, in drew brees world that might as well be a month on the calendar. all right. a little bit of the pulse here. newton and taking a look at the numbers. not very good. brees meanwhile, 32 of 41 and 242 and less than what he normally averages, but still, he has had it when he needs it, and 17 unanswered. there is the most depressing
back in the locker room. and we will get a report as soon as we can on him. >> man, you just have to take your shot here right now. i mean, i know that there are some things working gaiagainst , but you cannot turn around and kick the ball back to drew brees at this point. and he is not thinking field goal at this one, but he is thinking, let's go get a touchdown and get out of here with the win. a big time play here sh, and th have ted ginn and kelvin benjamin, and devin funchess is down to cam newton's left. >> al: they had the linebackers backed off and newton in traffic and that is caught by kelvin ben ja min. that is a big time catch.
and the decision to not bring pressure there is very interesting one. you could have almost told what was going to happen there. and kelvin benjamin is a bigger than life wide receiver. they play above the rim in these key situations. if you are sitting back in the zone, he does not care about getting hit. you throw it up high, and he will outrebound everybody. that is a core element of this offense. gutsy catch to go up to hang on to that one. but, no pressure and gave it a chance. >> al: that is a gigantic first down. new orleans now takes the last time-out. so the only time that the clock will stop now is at the 2:00 warning. after most likely this play. >> cris: here comes the pressure again. >> al: stewart is the running back. they want to get the clock down the 2:00, and they will on the
so it is go ing to be second don and eight as we go to the other side of the 2:00 warning. can brees get the ball back? >> cris: what a big time throw and catch that was when they needed it most. >> al: we have come down to the 2:00 warning in a tight one in charlotte. carolina over new orleans, 23-20 on this thursday night. ? whoa! what are you looking at? crazy! it's a virtual reality world. can i see? oh yai yai yai yai yai yai. ? will we be able to see the whole park? yeah, it's 360. look, it goes all the way around. go! let's go, let's go, let's go.
hold on, mom's calling. hey, mom. where are you guys? we'll be back soon. love you, bye mom. love you, mom! bye mom. hey, guys! ? alright, i'll see you tomorrow! that was awesome! ? ? (whispers rocket) hey come quick... my new beer, stella artois, is finished. the people will love it. originally brewed for the holidays. enjoyed ever since.
are the only three games that he has missed in his career. in there for almost every snap. we thought that maybe it was the leg. but it turned out to be something else. hope for the best here. >> al: newton is taking the clock all of the way down to third and eight. keeping it on the ground. not much to do here, and fozzy whittaker just stays inbounds to take you down to half a minute. so brees will have oh, you know, probably less than 30 seconds with the time we get down there to try to get them into field goal range. >> cris: you know, i have to go back for one moment to the decision to play the zone out of that play. most defensive coordinators and not all, but most defensive
come up to make the tackle at about seven yards and force the punt and go on. now i am not saying it is a wrong decision, but i am saying that typically in this league that is what you will see. >> al: surprising. time-out here. for carolina. go back to the benjamin catch. >> cris: and they rush out and rush four here, and they get close to getting to cam newton and there is definite pressure up the gut, but there is -- if you can understand what i am one more than they can block, you have to throw hot on the outside, and usually a slant or some kind of the stop route to come up to make the play. and you know, there is no right answer, but it is just that it is the typical one that i see. >> al: i am with you, brother. always. thick or thin. >> cris: until sunday. [ laughter ]
i will with be back, don't worry. palardy in his first nfl game, and another booming kick at the 13 yard line. marcus murphy and he will get taken down at the 25 and then a flag at the end of the play, and another flag that comes in, and for the moment, you have 14 second seconds on the clock. >> referee: during the return, team, 10-yard penalty, first down. >> al: that is the last thing they needed. that is nate stupar and now you are forced to air it out. 14 seconds and hope to get out of boundsle because you don't have a long pass and if you are carolina, you know, you have to guard the sidelines, but then again, you have to be careful over the middle, too. >> cris: yes, and now you can catch one over the middle, but
at the sideline and hope nfor te best. >> al: yep. try to get lutz in field goal ran range. >> cris: you have to throw it 50-yards plus to have a chance at a field goal on the other side. lutz' career long is 57. >> al: he won the game with 11 seconds left when these two teams met in louisiana last mon month. so brees now just dumps it off here sh here, and it is hightower who tries to get out of bounds to save at least one play. six seconds. >> cris: well, you have big tight ends, but not so big wide receivers. we have seen brandon coleman go up to get one, and michael thomas is a big body. i am not sure now that you can throw a hail mary and get out of bound, and maybe it is one of
>> al: and the thing is that you need a stanford play or the defensive foul deep downfield. which would extend the game by one play. so brees, and he is going to throw to the sideline, and they have one more play? they do. michael thomas makes the catch. now, you it up to the 36 yard line which is fine and dandy, and now what do you do? >> cris: i mean, it may be fine, but not dandy, because you have to throw this thing 65 yards into the end zone. with who knows, maybe drew brees can still do it. >> al: a hook and trailer. you have all kinds of gimmicks. >> cris: but you have the buy the time to get the receivers down there anyway. >> al: just a three-man rush, and they will throw the short
