This week I scored 157 points and was the second highest scoring team this week. This week I was carried by a two-TD game from the Minnesota Vikings defense, and a 300+ yard, 3 TD performance by Dak Prescott. Big points from those two and solid performance from most other skill players, more than offset poor showings from Kyle Rudolph and Caleb Sturgis. CJ Prosise had a solid game, but sustained a season-ending foot injury after a 72-yard TD run in the first quarter. Big blow for my team that is pushing for the playoffs.
With this win, I remain in fourth place with a 7-4 record.
At 115 points — I was the third highest scoring team this week. This match came down to the Sunday and Monday night games — mostly due to a decision on defense. With the Denver Broncos defense on a bye, I was looking for a streaming option. Early in the week I plugged in the Detroit defense, but made a last-minute switch to the New York Giants. Detroit had two TDs and a number of other defensive scores that would have added another 11 points to my total.
I was able to gain a 17-point lead after Sunday night, based on a strong 365 yard, 3 TD performance by Kirk Cousins and mediocre games by by Dustin Hopkins and Davante Adams. On Monday my opponent only had DeAndre Hopkins left. This play could have swung the match against me, but DeAndre Hopkins ended with a disappointing night.
I notched another win and now have a 10-1 record and maintain sole ownership of first place. More importantly, my opponent this the second place player and I now have a 2-game lead over him.
