Astros advance to the ALCS; Mike Pence, JJ Watt and a wild NFL weekend

Hunter Atkins is the host for the episode and is joined by Austin Staton and CBS Sports’ Derek Fogel to break down all of the action in another roundtable discussion. The guys discuss the use of Justin Verlander out of the bullpen, Alex Bregman’s game-tying homerun, scouting reports and a preview of a potential ALCS showdown with the Cleveland Indians.

Then, Jeremy Paxton joins the show to discuss Mike Pence’s political stunt to steal the spotlight in week five of the NFL season, JJ Watt’s season-ending injury and much more.
