DONE. JOHN WILL BE THERE IN SPIRIT. THAT’S ALL RIGHT. THAT’S ALL RIGHT. HE AND I KNOW — WE LOVE TO BATTLE AGAINST EACH OTHER. >>>WE’LL HAVE LOTS FROM MY CONVERSATION ON “SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN.”>>>LAST SUNDAY NIGHT AN NFL RECORD. YOU’VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND YOU CAN’T GET 40 FIRST DOWNS, BUT THEY DID, AND HERE THEY ARE. THEY WERE INCREDIBLE BY THROWING. MARQUES COLSTON, AND THEN RUNS TO THOMAS. THEY WERE ON TARGET. COLSTON AGAIN, THOMAS ON THE GROUND, AND BY THE TIME BREES HITS COLSON FOR A TOUCHDOWN VERY QUICKLY, NUMBER 7, NUMBER 8 TO STILLS. NUMBER NINE TO SPROLES. MARK INGRM, AND THEY’RE IN DOUBLE DIGITS, BUT WAIT, AS THEY SAY IN LATE-NIGHT TV, JIMMY GRAHAM, SOMETIMES THE PENALTIES TO HELP THINGS OUT. THEY DIDN’T NEED IT. A DUMP PASS TO THOMAS, AND IT’S 13 AND COLSTON. THEN A THROW TO LANCE MOORE, THEN THE FACE MASK, AND THEN SPROLES, THE TOUCHDOWN 17. SPROLES AGAIN 18, SPROLES TO 19, PASS TO COLSTON AND WE’RE AT 20. THAT’S ABOUT AN AVERAGE, THE SCREEN TO SPROLES, 21 FIRST DOWN. MARK INGRAM, MARK INGRAHAM, THEN BREES TO COLSTON, THEN BREES TO GRAHAM, THEN MARK INGRAM. PLUS A LITTLE HELP FROM DALLAS. THE PASS TO ROBERT MEACHEM, AND A HORSE COLLAR, AND A TOUCHDOWN MADE IT 31 FIRST DOWNS, INGRAM WITH THE RUN AND THOMAS ON THE GROUND. BREES TO COLSTON, GETS THE TOUGH FIRST DOWN. KENNY STILLS, 52-YARD TOUCHDOWN, 34th. MARK INGRAM. MARK INGRAM. PIERRE. MARK INGRAM. AN THEN A TOUCHDOWN BY THOMAS, THE 39th, TO GET TO THE 40th. THEY HAD TO GO FOR IT ON FOURTH AND FIVE.
