As the Buffalo Bills enjoyed a bye week, running back Fred Jackson took his children, Braeden, Kaylin and Jayden, bowling at Strikers in Orchard Park. The WBBZ-TV cameras were there to capture Jackson and his family with an exclusive behind the scenes feature that will be part of "The Fred Jackson Show" on WBBZ-TV.

"The Fred Jackson Show" airs Monday live at 6:30 p.m. The program, sponsored by Sahlem's Roofing and Siding, will re-air Monday at 10:30 p.m. and Tuesday at 9 a.m.

Jackson will talk with co-host Bob Koshinski about plans for the upcoming game against the Texans this Sunday at 1 p.m. at Reliant Stadium. They will be joined in studio by former Bills special teams ace Steve Tasker.

A former All-Pro, Tasker joined CBS Sports as a game analyst for "The NFL on CBS" in 1998. Tasker, a 13-year veteran of the Bills, is one of the NFL's greatest special teams players of all-time. A seven-time selection by his peers and coaches to represent the AFC as the special teams player at the Pro Bowl (1988, 1991-96), Tasker is the only true special teams player to be selected as the Pro Bowl MVP (1993).

Tasker, a five-time All-Pro selection, was a key component of the Bills' four consecutive AFC Championship teams (1991-94). He finished his career with 51 receptions for 779 yards and nine touchdowns, an average of 21.1 yards per kickoff return and 186 tackles. He authored "Steve Tasker's Tales from the Bills Sideline" in 2007.

Tasker was born April 10, 1962, in Smith Center, Kan. He and his wife, Sarah, live in East Aurora. They have five children.

WBBZ-TV is on Time Warner Cable Channel 5 in Buffalo/Niagara Falls (HD 710); TWC Channel 99 in Dunkirk; TWC Channel 21 in Olean; Channel 5 on Verizon FiOS (HD 705) and Dish Network; on Channel 67 on DirecTV (where available); and digital Channel 67.1 over the air.
