Live discussion: NFL Slam with Mark and Sam

November 12, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

This week's Monday edition of our NFL Google+ hangout -- "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam," starring Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer and Mark Thompson of "Mark and Brian" radio fame -- will start at 11:30 a.m. and cover a host of topics. One will probably be the tie between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. As Farmer wrote on Sunday:

"It was a comedy of errors on both sides when St. Louis went to overtime at San Francisco.

"On the Rams' opening possession of the extra period, an 80-yard pass play to Danny Amendola was wiped out by an illegal formation.

"When the 49ers got the ball back, they blew a chance to win when the typically accurate David Akers missed a 41-yard field-goal attempt.

"St. Louis got the ball back, drove into position to win with a long field goal, and rookie sensation Greg Zuerlein drilled a 53-yarder … but the field goal was negated by a delay-of-game penalty. The Rams were pushed back five yards, and Zuerlein missed wide.

"The game ultimately ended at 24-24, the league's first deadlock since Philadelphia played to a tie in Cincinnati four years ago.

"NFL Slam with Mark and Sam" is held every Monday and Friday at 11:30 a.m. You can watch it on this blog post. If you have questions for Mark and Sam, email them to and we will try to get them answered live during the chat.
