Laurence Holmes opened his show with the Rundown, taking a look at the top sports storylines of the day. JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago then joined the show to preview the Bears-Saints matchup and provide insight on what Chicago plans to do with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on Sunday and how the team will replace injured right guard Kyle Long. To end the hour, Holmes discussed how the Saints offense operates without Drew Brees and how the Bears can counter that.
In the 2nd hour of the show Laurence spoke with JJ Stankevitz about the Brian Kelly extension and the state of the Notre Dame football program. He also spoke with Jon Greenburg from TheAthletic.com about the White Sox as SoxFest started.
