I am telling Arrington and welcome to these weeks sixteen storyline presented by the on new Nissan -- I'm joined now by foxsports.com. And that's how contributor Peter Schrager. Peter can't you block fiscal late in Sunday's game against the Raiders two years and it's Korea or -- can't not get. Some people had to watch what cam knew it had been doing the last six games the -- or 42 in their last six and it all -- -- -- concepts. Gotta let it touchdowns one interception -- -- -- scored. I don't think anybody outside. Carolina had any idea how good Cam Newton has been and yes he lost his cool. First it off school early in the game -- Tommy Kelly beginning elated that he -- the -- Which obviously made a lot of headlines the national media would have you watched him in the past six games. He has matured he might they have Ron Rivera's job I have no problem with the lake and -- -- that enough. Because I think. Over a missed call OK with it he'd rather see that -- a Cam Newton and a guy who is interested in just not into it. Which is kind of the case earlier in the season and direct it picked it up and put it together -- after the year I think Anderson should be just fine and yet you don't think he's gotten it. And yet know watching the films and played terrific. Now Peter the Packers are red hot but the Vikings are still having won three straight. Why do you think Minnesota had the edge in Sunday's week seventeen battle. I like it like it because they are now playing at their act in -- and it -- up. On line. Before the seasons are by the Vikings rank as the 31. Of 32 and it felt in my pre season rankings they have -- -- your own -- everybody -- And now they've got to go out there and beat the Packers to make the playoffs there's no reason to -- -- -- that but that I wrote them off flat -- the Texans to take care of fitness. And they can't stop Adrian Peterson nailed down and let them a hundred yards against -- Christian Ponder stepped up defense stepped up this Vikings. Is playing against -- Pena in the airplane with hunger. They host the Packers but think that home field is going to be crazy I would not wanna go into the magic on this -- and Green Bay can still get the number two seed in Dubai and I know they wanna win this game but helping the Vikings can lose the Vikings are playing too well. And they proved to me that's wrong this is their season they're gonna win in. Not pro ball related question. Yeah at a ball a bloated field Peter -- -- three quarterbacks out of the NFC. I'm looking through the -- you can make the argument for up to ten different guys -- quarterback I. I'm going Matt Ryan number one Aaron Rodgers number two look at goes through the field for the rest of -- he got Eli Manning. And a strong here Robert Griffin the third Cam Newton had a huge year Josh Freeman Russell Wilson. Jay Cutler you can even make the argument that -- -- the two big statistical seasons that he can get it the guy I'm taking now it's not any of those players. Have taken. Until it broke all over RJ Adrian Wilson -- sort short margin. It's because he's the sole reason Dallas Cowboys are where they are today if the Cowboys. Arnott would still be relevant is that I don't think -- -- think -- -- here they are we it and they win the NFC east on Sunday night's Tony Romo that. Didn't have a row and quite arguably the best quarterback in the end of needed here going Brian Rogers remote with regards. And I -- if I haters out there cricket Wilson even Eli have big years ago it from my third quarterback. RIP how about a week seventeen layered watts. Yeah the week seventeen I had a lot to cheer immediately in the reserve cornerback. Out of Northwestern State Louisiana place for the Seahawks. Care related what do -- typical beyond the standard. Overlooked in the draft Josh Schneider takes a waiver -- and get on the -- Guess -- He played like -- head coach Pete -- -- tough guy out there is a fine job with big cornerback Brandon Browner out of the lineup -- Flat against the 49ers played with all of the field not just on the special teams to an easier game as we get against the -- but Danielle. It helped to make it with the NFC west but look for Jeremy going to play a major role again he played in two out of three facets of the game and he's all over the field. Another guy and the Seahawks where addicting by the passed -- but John Snyder and Pete Carroll took a risk and guess what he's paying dividends. -- player all week seventeen you'll get got a lot throughout the playoffs Jeremy played at number twenty on the sea Hawks. Thanks Peter that's gonna do it these weeks sixteen story lines for that by the all you -- -- -- For Peter I'm now in next time.
