  • 1-3
  • Weekly Grade: A
  • 119.9
  • 49ers Rule

  • 80.74

The Spartans got 28.00 points from Matt Asiata and 25.90 from Steve Smith Sr, thumping 49ers Rule 119.90 to 80.74. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts? Because this 39.16-point margin of victory was nothing short of a beatdown and was the fifth-highest recorded in the league this season. Jay Cutler led 49ers Rule with 21.14 points while Blair Walsh racked up 18.00. When assigning blame following this loss, 49ers Rule can look in the mirror. They started a player with zero points (Danny Amendola). The Spartans (1-3, 353.52 points) climbs into eighth place and 49ers Rule (2-2, 353.14 points) drops to sixth place.
