Dirty Hippies fall short of projections, lose to Arrogant Americans in 165.90-117.00 rout
There's no sugarcoating it, Dirty Hippies underdelivered, at least based on projections, as Arrogant Americans cruised to a 165.90-117.00 victory. It didn't take long to figure out who would lead the way in the matchup, as Arrogant Americans earned a 50.2-point lead early Sunday afternoon behind 50.7 points from Tyler Boyd (16 Pass Yds, 101 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD) and Alvin Kamara (83 Rush Yds, 65 Rec Yds). Matthew Stafford (340 Pass Yds, 1 Pass TD) and Terry McLaurin (7 Rec, 90 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD) led the charge for Dirty Hippies in the loss. Arrogant Americans (6-1) will look to keep it rolling against Roughnecks, while Dirty Hippies (3-4) attempt to get back in the win column against Hangovers.
Against the Browns in Week 7, Boyd had 101 receiving yards and a touchdown and passed for 16 yards. In doing so, he put up 27.9 points and nearly doubled his scoring projection, the highest percent increase of any player on Arrogant Americans this week. Next week, Boyd will battle the Titans.
If you blink, you'll miss it. That's how we feel about this season, which is already at the midway mark. How about we take a closer look at the Standings?
Arrogant Americans have done it all so far this season, averaging a whopping 165.66 points per game through seven weeks, best in the league. That offensive firepower has propelled the team to the best record in the league and a well-deserved spot atop the Standings.
364 Rush Yds, 4 Rush TDs, 460 Rec Yds, 3 Rec TDs
40 Rec, 615 Rec Yds, 6 Rec TDs
2018 Pass Yds, 16 Pass TDs, 204 Rush Yds, 3 Rush TDs
There's plenty of time left to make a move, but it's hard to see Dirty Hippies making a run up the Standings if they don't start scoring more. The squad finds itself outside of playoff position after averaging only 137.05 points per game through seven weeks, 10th-best in the league.
1580 Pass Yds, 10 Pass TDs
43 Rec, 577 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs
284 Rush Yds, 2 Rush TDs, 233 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs
