Episode Summary

Episode Notes

The episode, “Blinders”, opens with the Panthers winning their playoff game handily — one of their first lopsided wins of the year. As they’re celebrating the victory, Coach Mac McGill talks to the press. His comments – that players like Smash are fearless, like “junkyard dogs,” but aren’t equipped to play a position like quarterback – ignite a discussion or debate about race relations throughout the town of Dillon.
