Hall of Fame Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Menning launched Omaha Productions in 2021 for his television work; “Omaha” is significant as the city was often used in Manning’s play-calling “audible” signals in his NFL career. The most prominent program produced by the company would very likely be NBC’s Capital One College Bowl; interestingly, former Jeopardy! executive producer Harry Friedman (he was EP before Mike Richards) came out of retirement to help produce the upcoming second season of this.

Game Recap:

Jeopardy! Round:

Aaron took full advantage of a tired champion, running off nine correct responses before the opening break! Unfortunately, he missed the first Daily Double for his only incorrect response in the opening segment. Coming out of the Break, Ryan found his footing and got six correct of his own! Single Jeopardy! ended with Aaron leading at $6,400, Ryan at $4,600, and Srimal at $800.

Statistics at the first break (16 clues):

Aaron 9 correct 1 incorrect
Srimal 2 correct 0 incorrect
Ryan 1 correct 0 incorrect

Statistics after the Jeopardy round:

Aaron 14 correct 2 incorrect
Ryan 7 correct 0 incorrect
Srimal 3 correct 1 incorrect

Double Jeopardy! Round:

Double Jeopardy! was very much a two-horse race today; Srimal picked up the first Daily Double early, though a conservative bet didn’t help her score much. Aaron got the last Daily Double correct, but he also went conservative—I was hoping for a more aggressive Daily Double bet from Aaron, especially when facing a double-digit champion. Unfortunately for Ryan, he couldn’t catch Aaron, who held the lead going into Final. Scores going into Final were Aaron at $14,800, Ryan at $13,000, and Srimal at $7,000.

Statistics after Double Jeopardy:

Aaron 24 correct 4 incorrect
Ryan 17 correct 2 incorrect
Srimal 9 correct 1 incorrect
Total number of unplayed clues this season: 78 (0 today).

In Final Jeopardy! today, only Ryan was correct, which means he’s now an 11-day champion!

Andy’s Thoughts:

Final Jeopardy! wagering suggestions:

(Scores: Aaron $14,800 Ryan $13,000 Srimal $7,000)

Ryan: Standard cover bet over Srimal is $1,001. As I’ve suggested to trailers facing you, though: if you don’t think the leader will cover, go all in. (Actual bet: $12,999)

Srimal: If Aaron covers Ryan, he falls to $3,599. Thus, you need to stay above $3,600. I’d recommend betting no more than $3,399. (Actual bet: $2,000)

Aaron: Standard cover bet over Ryan is $11,201. (Actual bet: $0)

  1. Having lived in Colorado during the 4 years Peyton Manning played for the Denver Broncos, and even though I’m no football fan, there’s no way I could have missed Peyton’s calls of “Omaha!” during his play-calling.

  2. Michael Johnston | September 5, 2022 at 12:55 pm |

    Yeah this was another easy one for me too.
    Last week of repeats!

  3. I’m not 100% sure I knew it the first time around (although I’m pretty sure I did), but I definitely knew it this time.

  4. Something odd is that if you look up Omaha Productions on IMDb the majority of the productions listed for it are dated 2019.
