Back-and-forth battle ends with Roughnecks coming back to knock off Whackers, 152.95-136.25
Well, that was thrilling! After a back-and-forth matchup featuring three lead changes, Roughnecks came from behind for a 152.95-136.25 win to hand Whackers their sixth consecutive loss to open the season. Roughnecks trailed 121.75-117.10 heading into Monday night, but the team came storming back behind Patrick Mahomes (225 Pass Yds, 2 Pass TDs, 36 Rush Yds) and Ezekiel Elliott (49 Rush Yds, 31 Rec Yds). Derrick Henry (212 Rush Yds, 2 Rush TDs, 52 Rec Yds) and Gardner Minshew II (243 Pass Yds, 1 Pass TD, 14 Rush Yds, 1 Rush TD) did everything they could for Whackers in defeat. Roughnecks (4-2) will look to keep it rolling against DominationStation, while Whackers (0-6) will attempt to right the ship against The Dogs of War.
