And it seems like the old that the philosophy of next man up really is the case with the patriots it's a little about system with them and not gut check is doing odd look and get over Houston absolutely I gut check Atlanta and Seattle. Tough game for Atlanta because the Seahawks are a team that's starting to get back the run game. I am not a big believer in the falcons not just because their rival of the saints. But numb to the questions with their defense they do you have the offense I think to obviously put up the points but I just think Seattle's going to be too much to handle one and done for the falcons a legacy you'll those of the Saturday games on Sunday we got Steelers in sheep's.

According to one of cheaters web side it's a website that is designed you know how those people who want a cheat on their spouse's views. Says that today the second Monday of the year. Is the most common today for people to start an extramarital affair. Doesn't mean that most of us are gonna do it it doesn't mean it is going to be millions of people today now having their first affair. But it doesn't mean today is the busiest day of the year on their website history hands out format that lets. The second Monday after Christmas book I've had enough.

Over the holidays or something like an average of four fights a day. For a lot of couples during the month of December. And then January that's why it's the biggest monthly hours ago if you're fighting through December and you're giving up. In January. While instead of giving up in January or cheating in January.

But feels cold as guys on the south sure right now with the wind chills and it is called the guys in my twenties at the lake. But just wait mr. meteorologist Dave knows about it here live direct from the pin point forecasts and its allies.

Hopefully they'll read you know hopefully maybe not it's but they'll have a shot at a because that's Glasgow morning. I know yet is definitely the coldest morning out there and by no means is you're as cold as we were over the weekend with lower twenties north late in the twenties and sell short. Right now we're sitting at temperatures around 39 again at 32 Slidell saving image area so. Live there were free is nice is he actually just the freezing temperatures not mean that cold. But really what's gonna happen is a warm up quickly today winds start coming out of south east later. And that attracts sixty days after. A day close to what was supposed to be this time the average highs sixty to tomorrow and then that night actually temperature will rise on fall down to around the lower 50s by 10 o'clock in the rise to the mid to upper fifties when you wake up on Tuesday morning and keep rising to seven eat it too. On Tuesday night's where it's 26 and is when it feels like and slide out right now when you wake up tomorrow morning you know. Actually beat you feel about and twice that in the easily easily yeah. And will continue staying mild because then going to choose and it blows up be around 59 north 62 cell shore a it is ridiculous and then 76 on Wednesday now. We aren't. How fought issues again but we had a couple weeks ago starting on Wednesday and every morning all the way through the weekend that's don't predict that harm date we have Aaron and as a chance just like we had a couple weeks ago some of the fall could linger a few well into the afternoon hours for some places so. We have to watch that if we warm and muggy weather highs to be around 76 to seven EU Wednesday through the weekend those sixty's almost. Arafat's couple after yesterday. Where we barely got out of the thirties for most of the day. Will be part near eighty by this coming week. The house. So you know to hold on out there you know definitely warming.

Anyway she hit the gas build and barreled into the Susquehanna River. And then just sat there and drink their Beers or car floated down the river until fire department boat. Problem back to shore the that the well all I'm surprised there were more ice and snow apparently there are big blocks is OR and uses in that regard.

Thanks Dave good morning everyone both games were blew out yesterday to wrap up the NFL's wild card weekend. Pittsburg and whip Miami thirty to twelve to reach the AFC divisional round against Kansas City. Antonio Brown had five receptions for 124 yards most of it coming on touchdown grabs of fifty and 62 yards in the first quarter. Exhibit Roethlisberger seems publicity most of the better toppled a pretty excludes. 3530. About the quantity. I really think they're any sort of the end zone but now. In the day's second match up it was all Green Bay as Aaron Rodgers threw for 362 yards and four touchdowns in the packers' 38 at thirteen romp over the giants. It was the pax seven straight victory and they'll now get ready to play at Dallas. The Cleveland Browns have hired Greg Williams to be their new defensive coordinator saints fans know the man wealthy helped the black Inglewood a Super Bowl back in 2009. Williams was suspended for the entire 2012 season for his role in bounty gate. He was the coordinator with the rams for the past three seasons. Well the end of the college football season it's your Clemson and Alabama meet the national championship game tonight for a second straight year. Tide head coach and exceeding her arm back to back titles in his sixth overall title and he knows that the sixth ranked tigers are going to make things difficult. I think this is one of the top programs in the country and certainly is reflected by the success they've had on the field and that's no surprise to me that they are where they are relative to last year's team and measures to. It's a 7 PM kick off in Tampa Florida Republicans look to bust out their three game losing slogan may face the knicks and Madison Square Garden tonight at 630. New York is also struggling as they've lost seven of their last eight contests. But doing men's basketball team dropped their fifth straight contests falling eight to 59 to Memphis the green wave remain winless in conference play a win three. And sunny duds I is out act catalyst head coach.

Get a break out of the FL's wild card week I'm plus eight preview of the national championship game between Alabama and Clemson. Bennett seven talk LSU hoops on the Johnny Jones show I'm Steve Geller which early morning look. At sports Alabama as a six and a half point favorite over Clemson. In tonight's national championship game in college football actually a little surprised it's only six and while I think the fact that the Clemson Tigers kinda amazing showing against the Ohio State Buckeyes helps him there. And last year's game. Was a slugfest that went back and forth that Alabama came out on top and it was a five point bit him a victory. So I can understand maybe while they think it's going to be inclusive. Then maybe most our I'd you I'd I'd project Alabama have a double digit win tonight though. On the defense for them it's just been absolutely phenomenal this season from meet the tigers. Shall watch and quarterback. Really has to be perfect tonight for Clinton to have any chance and that's just not gonna happen against him as suffocating. And I think this is really one of the best damn teams ever I mean and it's hard to save it. It's going to be a close game but we Chelsea you're predicting a double digit victory I an argument that apparently knocked in about fifteen minutes for news first sports as you do you do sports on WWI folks five mobile red light and speeding cameras at the streets of New Orleans today. And they'll be another fifty of them between now and April so. Piece of favor be alert be aware slowdown. And make you not speeding because there could be cameras just about anywhere now.
