In an Instant
Those who remember the 1985 movie "Witness" will recall Harrison Ford using a silo and its contents to outwit some of the bad guys. A similar situation is all too real for an imperiled man in "In an Instant: Buried Alive," as he's trapped under several feet of corn when a shelf breaks at his family's Iowa farm. With his father otherwise occupied, he only can hope he'll be found and rescued before he suffocates.

Another new episode immediately follows.

After Tracey makes the trip to Dallas to see Deion, she's understandably irritated when the two of them find it almost impossible to arrange any quality time alone in the new episode "The Getaway."

Elsewhere, Deion helps Coach B develop an alternate game plan in light of changes that are in the offing.
