Episode 41 of The Scho Show is here for your listening pleasure. In this episode, Mark Schofield breaks down four plays from Sunday afternoon’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles. These plays highlight how the New England Patriots’ defense was able to take away what Carson Wentz wanted to do on offense.

In the first half of the show these four plays are discussed in detail:

Then, the Roman senator himself, Michael J. Kist, returns to do a post-mortem on the show. He talks about things from the Eagles’ perspective and shares outsider insight on Tom Brady, the state of the Patriots’ offense and where New England might be headed.
