The Underdogs come back to win against Cougars, 272.93-217.30
The Underdogs outperformed their projected point total, staging a comeback for a 272.93-217.30 win over Cougars. The Underdogs trailed 217.30-215.66 heading into Monday night, but the team roared back behind Zach Ertz (9 Rec, 91 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs) and the Philadelphia Eagles defense (17 Pts Allowed, 255 Yds Allowed). Drew Brees (349 Pass Yds, 5 Pass TDs) and Patrick Mahomes (283 Pass Yds, 1 Pass TD) were the leaders for Cougars in defeat. This marks the second time this season The Underdogs have knocked off Cougars, after winning 236.8-200.17 in their last matchup. The Underdogs will look to keep it going in the semifinals next week, while Cougars attempt to bounce back and lock up a top-6 finish.
Both teams had players with big-time plays early Sunday, but it was The Underdogs who grabbed the lead, 186.60-120.76. Jameis Winston teamed up with Mike Evans for a 61-yard touchdown pass for The Underdogs. Drew Brees made the highlight reel for Cougars with a 38-yard touchdown pass and a 21-yard touchdown pass.
Patrick Mahomes had a 48-yard touchdown pass for Cougars, who trailed 203.10-195.12 after the late action.
Kwiatkoski (10 Tackles) scored 9 points in a 31-24 win over the Cowboys in Week 14. His scoring output more-than-quadrupled his 1.93-point projection and was much higher than his 4.59-point season scoring average. Kwiatkoski ranks #1 among fantasy LBs this season and will face the Packers next week.
Good job deploying a lineup that won by 55.63 points this past week. We consider that to be a job done right.
Unless Cougars wants to go full diva-mode, then "not getting enough opportunities" is not a valid excuse this time around. As a group, our pass-catching corps (four WR, one TE) were targeted a grand total of 32 times in Week 14. With only 17 total catches, this group may need to work on chemistry with their QBs.
