The Shutdown Corner Week 8 Preview Podcast with Greg Cosell

We're back with another weekly podcast featuring our favorite X's-and-O's analyst — Greg Cosell, the longtime NFL Films maven who's also the executive producer of ESPN's "NFL Matchup." As always, we go through this week's upcoming games with a scout's eye and Greg in control of the All-22 tape.

Here are the matchups we're discussing in order this week:

Arizona Cardinals at Baltimore Ravens
Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans 
Miami Dolphins at New York Giants 
New Orleans Saints at St. Louis Rams
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
Detroit Lions at Denver Broncos
Washington Redskins at Buffalo Bills
Cincinnati Bengals at Seattle Seahawks
Cleveland Browns at San Francisco 49ers
New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers
Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs

We also go into greater detail on a few issues: What's wrong with Joe Flacco and Philip Rivers? Can Kevin Kolb rebound from a rocky start in Arizona? Why does Josh Freeman have to be "managed" all of a sudden? Why isn't anyone talking about Jacksonville's surprising defense? What were the Dolphins thinking on those two Tebow scoring plays? Why is St. Louis' run defense so bad, and can Dallas' DeMarco Murray repeat his historic performance against another sub-par run defense when the Cowboys face the Eagles? How is Andy Dalton developing, why will the Redskins miss Tim Hightower more than you might think, and how can the Patriots counter Pittsburgh's defense with the no-huddle?
