9:29 pm
when people think of style of play... iowa and stanford are mirror images of one another... hard-nosed, physical at the line of scrimmage... and most of all... stingy on defense... stanford is very good on "d" again... but late in the season... they started showing cracks... giving up 22 points or more in five of their last six games... greg davis and the iowa offense will look to exploit some of those leaks in the rose bowl on friday... but they know there's plenty of talent lining up on the other side of the ball..
9:30 pm
you look at stanford... is the number of linebackers and the number of athletes that they have... and so your team has to really be in tune to what kind of structure you're seeing... seeing...they play hard throughout all phases of the game... whether it be the run game or the pass game... they have big linebackers.. that's one thing that really sticks out to us... they're a physical group of guys... and we know that on the offensive side we're gonna have to execute in the run game and the pass game to be able to be successful... a tough year for jake duzey has gotten a little bit tougher... iowa announced today that the senior tight end will not play in the rose bowl after re-injuring his knee in practice last week... duzey was supposed to be a big part of the offense... but because of that knee... he played sparingly and never caught a pass in 20-15... duzey caught 36 balls last season... next in sports... it was a bad day in the desert for green bay... packers- cardinals highlights are
9:31 pm
don't look now... but the packers are peaking in december... entering today's game in arizona... green bay's won three straight... and a win against the cards would clinch another division title... and keep the pack in the running for a first-round bye... to the desert we go... all eyes on this one... between two of the best in the n-f- c... second quarter... pack down 10-0... but mike daniels... right place... right time... the former hawkeye comes up with the i-n-t... but the packers still trailed 17-0 at half... and then in the third... david
9:32 pm
away with it... northern iowa's finest scampers in for six... another big day for johnson... cardinals up big... and it only got worse... aaron rodgers was in trouble all day... here's one of arizona's nine sacks on the afternoon... scooped up by cory redding... and the fat fella takes it all the way back to the house... the rout was on... eventually the packers got on the board... a screen pass from aaron rodgers to eddie lacy... and number 27.... runs for a 28-yard touchdown... but it didn't matter on this day... the packers get smoked by the arizona cardinals, 38-8 the final score from the desert... and the mood after the game... wasn't good... we have a standard we've set around here for a long time... and we just haven't lived up to it... we've had some very poor halves... and we've had some good halves... we felt like this could've been an opportunity today to have another good half and get back into the game... but a couple fumbles later you're down 31
9:33 pm
ugly loss... to a very good football team... the most important thing is how we respond to this... it's definitely a hard one to swallow... the vikings trying to make the packers sweat a little bit... and wrap up a playoff spot themselves... they lead the giants right now in the third quarter, 22 to 3... harrison smith has a 35 yard interception return for the vikes... the bears and bucs are out of the playoff hunt... but they still played a game on sunday... second quarter, bears down a score... they've got two backs in the backfield... and tampa chases the wrong guy... kadeem carey right up the gut... we're tied at 7... third quarter... this was a game changer... jameis winston under attack.... and he just throws it up... harold jones-quartey comes down with it and returns it to the 30... big turnover there..then it was time to dial up a play fake... jay cutler to ka'deem carey... easy money... nice play call by adam gase... bears take a 19-13 lead... and they don't give it up...
9:34 pm
chicago improves to 6-9 on the year... they'll wrap up their season next week.. i like the way they responded.. the game didn't start real smooth... they blocked a punt... went in for an early touchdown... our guys just kept clipping away and i liked our toughness... toughness...that first quarter... we put ourselves in a few holes... we had a few holdings that kind of hurt us a little bit... but for the most part it was a pretty clean game... against a defense like this... that's how you have to play... it all looked so bleak... for the kansas city chiefs... they were 1-5... and the season looked to be lost... but since then... it's been smooth sailing... today... they went for their ninth straight win and a playoff berth... andy reid's team hosting the cleveland browns... hey, remember when alex smith couldn't throw touchdown passes to his wideouts?... not this year... jeremy maclin.. from 11 yards out... his sixth t-d of the season... chiefs up 7-zip... and then just before the half... smith is looking for more... this time he
9:35 pm
lead into the break... \but the browns made it a four-point game... and they had a chance on the final drive... after the completion here... johnny manziel trying to get everybody to line up so they can spike it... but tick tick tick... the clocks runs out on cleveland... but the fun is just beginning for the chiefs... they clinch a playoff spot with their ninth straight win... 17-13 the final... the chiefs are now just a half-game back of denver in the a-f-c west... it put us in a day by day week to week deal, and that was our mind frame.... and it was good... we weren't thinking about anything else... we're just kinda living day by day week to week... because of the hole we were in... and just slowly kind of dug our way out... our thing is... just trying to lay one brick at a time... the best we can... instead of looking at the whole wall... just try to lay one brick at a time.. the best way possible and just go from there... that's a check of sports,
