Montana, Brady, and Manning. Those are some of the names that Daemion's Team will be synonymous with after their comeback victory against The Gronking Dead, overcoming a 3-point deficit on Monday night, edging The Gronking Dead 68 to 67. Daemion's Team got 20 points from Jordy Nelson and 15 from Jeremy Hill. Like Kevin Dyson getting tackled at the one-yard line in Super Bowl XXXIV, The Gronking Dead fell just short, suffering a 1-point loss to Daemion's Team in the playoffs. Daemion's Team wins their second matchup with The Gronking Dead in as many games, and their head-to-head record improves to 2-1. Their last win was in Week 8 with a final score of 67 to 61. Both sides missed scoring opportunities as Daemion's Team had one starter turn in zero points and The Gronking Dead also had one. The Gronking Dead must have some good karma from a previous season or event. They finished the regular season in second place with a record of 8-5, despite ranking just fifth in the league in scoring at 80.36 points per game. This postseason, The Gronking Dead was sent home quickly, losing in their only playoff game.

Smooth Moves by Daemion's Team

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Daemion's Team look really good right now.
  • Jordy Nelson put up 20 points, which was the seventh-highest score in the league this week.

  • With 15 points, Jeremy Hill ranked fifth in scoring among all RBs in the league this week.
  • The 12 points scored by David Johnson was the seventh-highest score of any RB in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • 7 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. The Gronking Dead thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Jeremy Langford. However, he scored 1 point against a projected 1.78 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • It was a bad week at RB for The Gronking Dead, who was outscored at the position 27 - 1 by Daemion's Team.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Mike Evans had a season-low 6 points against a projected 14.85 and scored below his projection for the sixth time this season.

In the other 136 regular season games played in Ismail’s career, he’d score more than one touchdown in a game just one more time, and he only recorded seven other games of 100-plus receiving yards.
