Video Transcript

- All right. Here's going to be your record.

JARED QUAY: Looks like the Cowboys didn't miss head coach Mike McCarthy too much as they beat the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football. They did a little bit of this.

- Here's one of the end zone Gallup twisting and a touchdown.

JARED QUAY: And some of that.

- Toss to Pollard. And there he goes. Tony Pollard down the sideline. Jets are on. Touchdown Dallas.

JARED QUAY: And the Cowboys snapped a two game losing streak to extend their lead on the NFC East with the dub. We'll see if they can keep that train rolling though because you never know what the Cowboys.

- Especially Cowboys.

JARED QUAY: So there's good news and bad news for the Lakers. Which one you want first?

- Yeah. Good News.

JARED QUAY: All right. All right. LeBron James is out of Health and safety protocols after testing negative for COVID-19. LeBron tweeted out there's something kind of fishy was going on. And it turns out he was right because his first positive test was a false positive test.

- What's the bad news?

JARED QUAY: The bad news is the Lakers and Clippers game tonight has been bumped from time to time on ESPN in favor of the Red Hot Suns versus the equally impressive Warriors.

Listen, I don't remember the last time LeBron and the Lakers were taking off primetime either. But when you have two of the best teams match-up on a Friday night, common sense dictates that they promise to get the nod. You feel me?

- OK, fine.

JARED QUAY: I knew you'd understand. One guy who seems to never make any sense is Antonio Brown. He's a walking enigma. Remember when he asked his now former chef for fake vaccine cards.

- You're a phony.

JARED QUAY: Well, it's time to pay that Piper. Antonio Brown along with bucks co-owner Mike Edwards and free agent co-owner John Franklin III have all been suspended three games without pay for misrepresenting their vaccination status.

It does make me wonder, though, how many guys in the league may be using fake vaccine cards?

- How many do you think there are?

JARED QUAY: It's like college all over again. Instead of guys having fake IDs to buy liquor, they got fake vaccination cards. If you catch COVID with your fake vaccinated card, it doesn't help you, OK? I'm not saying the fake vaccination cards can trick people, but they definitely can't stop COVID.
