Game Notes

  • It was a tough loss for Mystic Rivers, which put up the sixth-biggest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • The Toyota Hall of Fame recommends Mystic Rivers go on a WINNING streak, instead of a LOSING streak. That one word makes a surprising amount of difference.
  • In the loss, Martellus Bennett scored 14.30 points, the seventh-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • ForWhom L'Bell Tolls outdid their projection in the win, while Mystic Rivers came in under their point expectation. ForWhom L'Bell Tolls is now 2-0 when overachieving, while Mystic Rivers falls to 0-2 when failing to reach their projection.
  • The margin of victory of 13.18 points was the third-highest margin in the league this week.
  • In the loss, Philip Rivers scored 32.22 points, the ninth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • The 113.20 points scored by ForWhom L'Bell Tolls ranked second in the league this week.
  • If I had a performance like that, I'd probably go see the local hypnotist. Despite being on the winning team, Anquan Boldin scored a season-low 1.20 points, just 16.9% of a projected 7.12, his lowest percentage of the season.
