In the Gold Division, the Porkchops achieved one of the statistical anomalies of all time. Last week, they went into Monday night needing Ashlon Jeffry to score to beat the Elks; he did not, and the Elks won in OT. This week, Buzz needed Frank Gore to score to beat the 'Chops, but he did not, and the "Chops won in OT 51-45. Not only was that whole story odd, but it's the first time in league history that a team has went to OT twice in two weeks. With a 27-24 lead going into Sunday night, Peyton Manning's first TD pass to Eric Decker gave 3 to the 'Chops and 6 to Buzz, tying the game. Manning's second TD thus put the 'Chops back in front, and a second TD pass to Decker tied it once again. Lawrence Tynes racked up 17 to lead the winners, while Matt Stafford put up 15 for Buzz.
The Clock BBQs, on the other hand, didn't even score until the Sunday night game. The Elks got 12 from Tom Brady and 15 from
Two changes to the way I'm doing the standings. The first, obvious one, is that I've added a streak column, so you can see who's hot and who's not. The second is that I stopped being lazy. You see, I have always broke ties on the standings by the ratings points- even though that's not the way that they are broke for the playoffs. It was just easier than doing multiple looks at the head-to-head matchups. But today, you see the standings as if the season ended today. Thus, instead of the Purple being Beagles-Aguas-KCAs by points, you have it by their head to head records- with the Aguas having a win over both, and this week's loss to the KCAs, the Beagles with a win over the KCAs and a loss to the Aguas, and the KCAs 1-2 against the pair. Likewise, the Rangers are in fifth due to their 3 point loss to the Greenwoods in week 3. And the Clock BBQs pass the Elks based on a 2-point win in week 2.
Next week, the big showdown between the KCAs and Beagles, the Angels and Greenwoods, The Aguas and Rangers in another huge game, Clock BBQs vs Buzz, Elks vs Ducks, and a third big game featuring the 'Chops and B2s.
