FMIA: The Mini Pod: Banged up QBs, blown calls, the Pats smothering D, plus 10 Thoughts

Peter King gives a taste of his 9/16 Football Morning in America column wrapping up Week 2. (1:50) We spend way too much time talking about the officials, but several bad calls - not to mention the confusion surrounding replay review - became the story coming out of a fun Sunday. In particular, the Saints have every right to be furious. Again. At the refs. In a big game against the Rams. Again. (8:20) 10 Thoughts on Week 2 includes some riffs on how the Pats might be the Steel Curtain, Superman Patrick Mahomes, beat up QBs, and Kirk Cousins makes a bonehead play. (11:30) Could this be the end of a Hall of Fame career for Adam Vinatieri? (13:05) The feel-good story of the week focuses on a long-snapper who hadn't played a game in 5 years. (14:00) Peter dishes out his awards for the week, including an offensive lineman living out every big man's dream. (15:00) Factoid of the Week has some wacky stuff on the Bills, including Josh Allen's love of New Jersey Westin ribs.
