This week's show:

• Matthew Stafford’s MVP case — 2:17

• Cowboys at Giants: What’s different this time around? How do the Giants’ DBs match up with all of the Cowboys’ passing-game weapons? — 16:59

• Saints at Bucs: A nightmare matchup for Drew Brees and the Saints offense? Can Bucs open things up against a New Orleans D that lacks edge burners? — 23:03

• The Mailbag (Does Seattle switch strategies with Earl Thomas out? Can Ladarius Green become the third part of the triplets in Pittsburgh? Can Aldon Smith give the Raiders anything? How much trouble is the Colts D in with D’Qwell Jackson suspended? What in the world happened with Greg Robinson?) — 29:02
