Melissa is joined this week by Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network to chat leftovers from Monday Night’s Chiefs-Rams beauty. Aditi wasn’t quite as impressed as most by the overall experience.

Then the two discuss an array of hot button issues including the strange Condi Rice/Browns story, the Steelers staying hot, Alex Smith’s devastating injury, the Ravens QB conundrum and more. Miraculously, Aditi wrapped seven presents while engaged in the convo.

Melissa also explains why Rams-Chiefs brought strangers together, and awards this week’s Do-Gooder Award to Panthers QB Cam Newton.
