The Denver Broncos are currently one of the leaders in the AFC and are looking for home-field advantage. The Buffalo Bills are battling for one of the playoff spots with numerous other AFC teams. Steve Tasker of CBS Sports talks about their week 14 match-up and how Denver may not be this year’s favorite to win it all.
The AFC is a very tight race as the season begins to round to a close and numerous teams are still fighting for a playoff spot. CBS Sports and former special teams ace Steve Tasker spoke on the match-up between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins on “Thursday Night Football.”
Week 10 of the 2014 NFL regular season has a lot of big games on the schedule and that includes two big AFC contests that include match-ups between potential playoff teams. Steve Tasker of CBS Sports took some time to discuss the “Thursday Night Football” game between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals and then a Sunday match-up between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.
When he was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1985, no-one expected Steve Tasker to last very long in the NFL. He may not have lasted more than one season in Houston, but the minute wide receiver and special teams ace last 12 more with the Buffalo Bills. He knows what it takes overcome adversity, but when it comes to this week’s game on Thursday Night Football, Tasker isn’t sure the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can overcome the strong Atlanta Falcons.
The game fell short of setting a viewership record, but it stands as the third most-watched program in U.S. television history.
On Friday, he joined Boomer and Craig to play the role of a ‘Super Bowl Mystery Guest’ and help them give away a trip to New Orleans.
Tasker joined Boomer & Craig to talk a little about the Bills, the maturation of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the fluid running style (like water) of Fred Jackson.
Steve Tasker is a former Buffalo Bill and a current CBS football analyst, so that combination made him a perfect fit to join today’s Football Friday edition of the Extravaganza.
As the Jets get ready to leave for Indianapolis with thoughts of avenging last year’s AFC Championship game loss to the Colts, Craig declares today’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza as the ‘Official-Unofficial NY Jets Pre-Game Show’.
By now we all know that Rex Ryan and the Jets are taking on Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night. What we don’t know is how Gang Green will fare. Can the Jets pull it off?
