The Mad Scientist smirk at expectations, defeat The Placebo Arm in 100.22-95.34 battle
The Mad Scientist outperformed expectations, narrowly earning a 100.22-95.34 win over The Placebo Arm, who fell short of projections. The Placebo Arm made a run at it on Monday night, but it wasn't to be. The Mad Scientist led 57.62-72.80 after Sunday's action and held on for the win despite 9 points from the Seattle Seahawks defense on Monday night for The Placebo Arm. Deshaun Watson (33.12 points) and Adrian Peterson (17.5) led the way for The Mad Scientist in the victory. This marks the second time this season The Mad Scientist have knocked off The Placebo Arm, after winning 95.42-87.26 in their last matchup. The Mad Scientist (6-6) will look to sustain their winning ways against DeKaylin Zecharius, while The Placebo Arm (4-8) will attempt to get back on track against An Easy W.
While running for 55 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Texans, Peterson put up 17.5 points this week. His scoring output more-than-doubled his 7.3-point projection and was much higher than his 6.12-point season scoring average. Peterson will face the Bears next week.
