A. Gates-SD (TE) V. Davis-SF

A. Henery-Phi (K) J. Brown-NYG

Houston (D) Denver

FINAL SCORE: 122.62-77.40

SUMMARY:

Handles’ demolition of Slick Willie this week was the fifth blowout loss of the year for Slick. When all is said and done, Slick has no one to blame but himself; this Globetrotter had 3 players score 0 points.

 

TANNEHILLBILLIES vs. AJ MILLIEN’S TEAM

M. Ryan-Atl (QB) C. Kaepernick-SF

T. Smith-Bal (WR) V. Cruz-NYG

C. Shorts III-Jax (WR) S. Smith-Car

A. Peterson-Min (RB) L. McCoy-Phi

A. Ellington-Ari (RB) C. Johnson-Ten

G. Olsen-Car (TE) J. Finley-GB

J. Tucker-Bal (K) B. Walsh-Min

Carolina (D) Arizona

FINAL SCORE: 127.38-91.04

SUMMARY:

TANNEHILLbillies notched their third win in a row, with Demaryius Thomas and Adrian Peterson’s combined 58 points proving too much for Bones to overcome.

 

JOHN’S TEAM vs. MELPH52

M. Stafford-Det (QB) A. Luck-Ind

D. Bryant-Dal (WR) K. Britt-Ten

D. Jackson-Phi (WR) R. Streater-Oak

V. Jackson-TB (WR) E. Decker-Den

D. Murray-Dal (RB) P. Thomas-NO

R. Jennings-Oak (RB) D. Woodhead-SD

J. Reed-Was (TE) J. Cook-StL

G. Gano-Car (K) G. Hartley-NO

Tennessee (D) New Orleans

FINAL SCORE: 112.26-85.82

SUMMARY:

Thanks in part to Matthew Stafford’s 23 points, Jet was able to bring down Big Easy, who was not helped by an injury to Kenny Britt that resulted in no points from that wide receiver slot.

 

DARNELL’S TEAM vs. COUNTRY BOY

R. Griffin III-Was (QB) C. Newton-Car

W. Welker-Den (WR) K. Allen-SD

E. Sanders-Pit (WR) J. Nelson-GB

M. Jones- Cin (WR) A. Boldin-SF

L. Bell-Pit (RB) M. Lynch-Sea

F. Gore-SF (RB) D. Williams-Car

J. Gresham-Cin (TE) H. Miller-Pit

A. Vinatieri-Ind (K) R. Gould-Chi

Indianapolis (D) Seattle

FINAL SCORE: 79.34-84.76

SUMMARY:

Ant narrowly escaped a horrifying upset here. It seemed like Spider had it in the bag; the Trotter replaced an injured Aaron Rodgers with RGIII and was rewarded with a 30-point effort, but all became doomed when his final two starters failed to score a point. Now, instead of gaining momentum with an encouraging upset, Spider remains in 9th place with his 6th loss in a row, while Ant remains high above in 3rd place.

 

THREE PEAT FLIGHT vs. ONLYHERETOBEATHERB

P. Manning-Den (QB) R. Wilson-Sea

C. Johnson-Det (WR) J. Jones-Bal

P. Garcon-Was (WR) V. Brown-SD

T. Hilton-Ind (WR) M. Colston-NO

L. Miller-Mia (RB) K. Moreno-Den

D. Sproles-NO (RB) C. Spiller-Buf

J. Graham-NO (TE) K. Rudolph-Min

S. Hauschka-Sea (K) M. Prater-Den

Chicago (D) Cincinnati

FINAL SCORE: 163.10-99.18

SUMMARY:

At the beginning of the year, OnlyHereToBeatHerb set a goal for himself … beat reigning champion Flight Time Lang (a.k.a. Herb). Unfortunately for him, this far-reaching aspiration will not be accomplished this season. Flight Time, in response to such an ambitious objective, absolutely dismantled his opponent, continuing to pursue his own self-proclaimed goal, as he sits atop the standings in 1st place.

PANAMA vs. GUTCHECKERZ

J. Locker-Ten (QB) D. Brees-NO

R. Randle-NYG (WR) L. Fitzgerald-Ari

C. Givens-StL (WR) G. Tate-Sea

C. Patterson-Min (WR) H. Nicks-NYG

A. Morris-Was (RB) E. Lacy-GB

M. Forte-Chi (RB) Z. Stacy-StL

T. Gonzalez-Atl (TE) C. Fleener-Ind

D. Bailey-Dal (K) M. Bryant-Atl

Green Bay (D) San Francisco

FINAL SCORE: 70.06-124.98

SUMMARY:

Moose notched his third straight win, burying Special K. This Trotter has seen the effects a mid-season hot streak can provide: Moose has climbed from 10th place to 5th since Week 8. Special K suffered from a few key coaching errors; both of his available quarterbacks underachieved, but his starter actually scored negative points.
