There's truly nothing like that early-December tradition all Americans know and love: Wednesday afternoon football. The thrice-delayed second meeting of the Pittsburgh Steelers & Baltimore Ravens finally occurred on an extremely-rare Wednesday afternoon and the end results were mixed: the Steelers came away with a win in what was ultimately an ugly game for the virus-stricken Ravens.

Terez Paylor & Charles Robinson open the show discussing the W.A.F. game as well as a few lingering COVID questions the league is dealing with: if there is a vaccine readily available within the next month, will the players have access to it soon? In what scenario will the NFL break the 'in case of emergency' Week 18 glass? Will playoff teams enter an NBA-style playoff bubble?

Later in the podcast, they discuss another disappointing loss for the Philadelphia Eagles. What's wrong with Philly & their former MVP-caliber QB Carson Wentz? What happened in the Eagles' 2020 draft war room that almost yielded them both an Offensive Rookie of the Year and a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate? (20:55)

A listener writes in discussing possible landing spots for Detroit Lions QB Matt Stafford, who may be on the trade block after the team fired its coach and GM on Sunday. Could the Browns, Broncos or Bears deal for the former first overall pick? (32:25)

Finally, Terez & Charles chat about what they'll be watching for this weekend in the matchups between the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons and the Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans. (47:00)
