On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we take a look at the NFL playoff picture. Al tells you why he's not buying the panic that many have with the New England Patriots after a second straight loss this past weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tom Brady is still Tom Brady and Al doesn't trust the other teams in the AFC. Also, we welcome Trevor Darnell, ticket writer at South Point Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. Darnell addresses the Supreme Court striking down a 1992 federal law that effectively banned commercial sports betting in most states. How will this change the landscape of sports culture today? We then close the show with a look at the Detroit Pistons loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at home last night.
