On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the Green Bay Packers' victory over the Los Angeles Rams. The Packers have the look of the best team in football - and they have the resumé to prove it. Ever since Aaron Rodgers' offseason of discontent, Green Bay has been absolutely dominant. Every single team except Green Bay has gone through some sort of midseason malaise, and it’s all because of Rodgers. He has to be the MVP right now. In the losing locker room, it's hard to get a read on this team. The honeymoon is obviously over for Matthew Stafford; If he can't get his act together, the Rams' season will end in disappointment. Sticking in the NFC, how about those San Francisco 49ers? They were left for dead a few weeks ago, and now they're right back in the playoff hunt. Jimmy Garoppolo might not be a dead man walking in the Bay Area after all. Later, Jason does a deep dive into Lincoln's Riley's decision to leave the Oklahoma Sooners to take over as the new head coach at USC. The Sooners are headed to the SEC in a few years, and you have to imagine that played a big role in Riley's decision. Riley could be good in the SEC but he could be downright dominant in the Pac-12. Finally, Jason closes the show with a very special Seattle Seahawks-Washington Football Team Monday Night Football edition of the Best Bet.
