By ESPN.com staff
Sunday NFL Countdown airs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET on ESPN. Here are some of the features you can see this week:
Giants’ finish line: Before the Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI victory, as part of an inspirational speech, coach Tom Coughlin showed his underdog team a video that helped motivate his players.

RG3 quotables: Coming off a spectacular debut in New Orleans, Robert Griffin III gets set for his second career NFL regular-season game.

Hear Redskins veterans talk about Griffin, and the impact his quotes have had on the team in such a short time.
Kirby Wilson: Just two days before Pittsburgh was set to face Denver in the 2011 playoffs, Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson’s house caught fire.

It has been a long road to recovery, but after months of rehabilitation, Wilson is back on the sidelines, an inspiration to his family, his team and the community.
Hangin’ with Jaws: Ron Jaworski welcomes two high-profile quarterbacks into his film room as he dissects game film with Joe Flacco and Michael Vick, who square off Sunday afternoon.
