See, isn’t it much nicer when you don’t have the title of the article blocking half the picture?! With Andrew Luck going down for some time with a kidney injury, (something I am suddenly MUCH more sympathetic about), I had to try to capture the M*A*S*H unit that is Anand’s team.
Since I spent so much time on the mid-year thing, I’ll try to keep this week’s recap on the shorter side.
Fly Eagles Fly 254.54, The Edgars 193.58
The Eagles were in the lead from wire-to-wire in this one, taking a big lead on Thursday and never giving it up. Antonio Brown led all scorers with over 45 points, yet he never scored a touchdown. Cam Newton wasn’t far behind with almost 40 points. On the other hand, the Edgars would have been better off starting injured RB Matt Forte over Eddie Lacy and his -1 points.
Mashed Potatoes 249.8, Yukon Gold 233.32
Terry’s Taters snapped the Gold’s six game win streak to tighten up the standings. Aaron Rodgers desperate attempt to keep up with the Panthers led the way for the Mashers, while Lamar Miller also topped 30 points. The Gold were led by Derek Carr but the odds were stacked against them with numerous top scorers on Bye this week.
Game of the Week
Geno’s Jawbreakers 209.38, Don’t Stop Believin’ 199.92
Just look at that game flow chart. Back and forth all weekend long, almost always within a few points of each other. Geno and his parade of injured stars got just enough points to outscore the Believers. For the 2nd week in a row, Drew Brees was on fire and a balanced attack was able to withstand nearly 40 points from DeAngelo Williams and nearly 30 from Demarco Murray.
