The 2018 NFL season kicked off last week, with the opening game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons reaching a 9-year viewership low. Journalist Mark Leibovich has been reporting on the NFL over the past four years as stories involving cheating, concussions and player protests have many fans questioning the league, if not the game, itself. Leibovich joins us to talk about his book, “Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times,” the politicization of the NFL and whether the league will survive another 99 years.


Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent, New York Times Magazine, and author: "Big Game - The NFL in Dangerous Times"
