Despite top scorer Brees, Nightmares fall to Blue Falcons in 149.05-147.85 battle
Drew Brees racked up 27.7 points for Nightmares, the best total in the matchup and 10th-highest in the league this week, but it wasn't enough to vanquish Blue Falcons, who narrowly earned a 149.05-147.85 win. It wasn't nearly as close as the final score indicates, as Blue Falcons led 137.05-78.95 heading into the late afternoon slate on Sunday. Nightmares came roaring back behind Drew Brees (27.7 points) and Tyreek Hill (17.4). Blue Falcons were led by Marvin Jones Jr. (27.2 points) and J.D. McKissic (25.7). This marks the second time this season Blue Falcons have gotten the best of Nightmares, after winning 182.8-127.4 in their last matchup. Blue Falcons will look to clinch the league title next week, while Nightmares attempt to bounce back and lock up 3rd Place.

Coach Talk
Blue Falcons
I just can't overstate how important tight wins like this can be for team chemistry. Persevering in the face of adversity and triumphing as a tight-knit unit... expect the Blue Falcons locker room to really gel heading into Week 16.
Nightmares
Normally, missing a field goal isn't any real cause for concern. Having said that, Justin Tucker went 1-for-2 on FGs instead of 2-for-2, and Nightmares lost the matchup by 1.2 points. Talk about impeccable timing...
