Reporters covering the Conference Championships:


  • Opening Tease: The Contenders: Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather voices Countdown’s opening tease themed “The Contenders” – a notation on how the journey to being a champion requires an athlete to first be a contender.
  • Bill Belichick – Part II: More of Chris Berman’s conversation with Bill Belichick, who discusses his coaching philosophy and how the Patriots have reached six of the seven AFC Championship games this decade.
  • Soundtracks – Matt Ryan: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, wired for in-game audio during last Saturday’s Divisional Playoff win over the Seahawks, will be featured in Soundtracks.
  • The Secret of a Sideline Catch: Randy Moss and Travis Kelce demonstrate the secrets to a successful sideline catch following the improbable Aaron Rodgers 36-yard throw and sideline catch by Jared Cook that set up the Packers’ game-winning field goal to beat the Cowboys last week.
