Welcome today's week thirteen story lines for than about beyond any thought often that I'm Charlie Arrington and I'm joined by foxsports.com. NFL contributor Peter Schrager. Peter that cardinal visit the Jets on Sunday he feeling these teams have a close eye on their cornerbacks with an even closer eye on the 2013 and about draft. Do you expect both of those teams that they quarterback when draft time -- I mean wow jail and the only -- and have a worse week than Rex Ryan was Ryan Lindley the quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals now. Kevin Kolb obviously was supposed to be that guy in John Skelton was there at the back of Lindley is in there now it. I don't know of any of those three guys are ever leading this team to Super Bowl championship I would not be shot. If the Cardinals went quarterback in the draft this year as for the Jets see the reaction here by the fans in New York is clean house get to see it as the that's not gonna happen -- Mark Sanchez in -- contract extension with 220 million dollars this offseason they're not gonna cut it just like that they may bring in a back up. Because Tim Tebow is obviously not the answer. Don't we talk about the MVP award we always discuss the cornerback for the best team or the guy who broke up and it's -- single season statistical record. This year however you have -- candidates and not everybody's talking about Friday. Yes you know -- there is no run -- Camden this year you don't have. Aaron Rodgers for at the same numbers he has to you don't have Drew Brees break and he's in single statistical records. Some give two names that nobody's talking -- and the MVP race in the first on. Is Jay Cutler and the. Jay Cutler is not doing anything to me he's not a media darling Jay Cutler was the Chicago Bears with Jay Cutler and a lot of the season. Our eight in one without him there -- -- -- there too drastically different squads. Cutler again not a media darling but he's the guy to at least put in the conversation. A totally different -- team with them and without. The other guy and that's exactly -- Is Ben Roethlisberger problem burger comes back the lineup. And lead this Steelers team which is -- -- two game losing streak to AFC north title you have to consider him in that conversation Cutler Roethlisberger. Not your household and eighteen games the two guys I've put in the conversation. Other Texans battled the Titans on Sunday the last couple weeks that went out Houston defense. Has given up lots of point isn't the week they can get indeed going again. I hope so you need to put the Texans -- the last week -- they had two overtime games at basically went 45 quarters each. In five days and they played on Sunday against the Jaguars and they played on Thursday against the Lions they won both games and that's what matters and as we head towards stretch here. They're gonna need to win games because the Patriots Broncos and Ravens they're not lose and from what it seems suspect he's had that little game lead over all those three teams that they -- now. They'll have home field throughout the playoffs in a crowded AFC. With all those injuries mounting on the Texans defense they're gonna need every last ounce of energy from all of their guys on the depth chart. I think they get the job done against the -- After that they've got the Colts twice more before the season's over. This AFC south title if not a sure thing. Peter have gotten under the radar player of. It week. Yet -- last week we gave you a player that was TY Hilton from Indianapolis Colts he went out. And scored eight touchdowns this week's player to watch Oregon people all Powell. You running backs New York Jets I think -- games and be very -- -- Arizona Cardinals. Not a high scoring game but I think -- be one in the trenches for us whereas Beanie Wells we do the job for the Cardinals I think Powell -- -- a lot of carries for the Jets. He got some yards and really just garbage time against the Patriots look for in the play a bigger role this weekend against Arizona law power if you're looking for -- last second second running back. Where fancy football team when he's weeks matter I know it's almost playoff time Powell could be again. That -- -- -- week thirteen story lines presented by the running beside ops and -- don't forget keep it logged on the foxsports.com. -- NFL need. Peter -- until the next time.
