In a special edition of The Ringer NFL Show, Robert Mays and Kevin Clark take a midseason look at what has been the most complicated season in the history of the league. Danny Kelly joins to explain why the play on the field has seemed uninspired (03:45), but points out the fun things there are to celebrate this season (17:00). Then, Bryan Curtis and the guys discuss the myriad of significant off-field issues, including the cartoonish rift between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell (22:45) and how the pregame player protests have already been successful (28:30). Plus, Claire McNear joins the show to talk about the player health and safety (37:00), including the one thing that could actually lead to the end of the NFL (44:00).
