What's more likey to happen: a Browns/Lions Super Bowl or JoynerJackduUp beating Urban Legends? JoynerJackduUp has yet to beat Urban Legends, falling 144.06 to 136.64. Drew Brees put up 56.60 points and was in the spotlight. It was even higher than his 48.70 points in the last matchup with JoynerJackduUp. JoynerJackduUp should maybe just take the week off next time against Urban Legends, who has a 17.42-point average margin of victory against them. It's wider than their 10.42-point average margin of victory on the season. With Antonio Gates delivering zero points for Urban Legends, the margin wasn't as big as it could have been. Urban Legends is averaging 166.24 points against JoynerJackduUp and beat them 188.42 to 161.01 in Week 3.

Smooth Moves by Urban Legends

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Urban Legends either way.
  • Not the best, but in the conversation. Drew Brees ranked second in the league in scoring this week with 56.60 points. It was also the fourth-highest score of any player on Urban Legends this season.
  • With 15.00 points, Matt Prater beat his 8.64 projected point total by a team-leading 73.6%.
  • Urban Legends won even with Antonio Gates in the starting lineup, who didn't score any points.
  • Urban Legends won despite having only 3 of their 10 starters exceed their scoring projection.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, JoynerJackduUp, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Did not start Tyrell Williams, who beat his projected point total by 99.1%, which was the highest percentage of either team.
  • JoynerJackduUp had 9 starters fail to reach their projections.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. JoynerJackduUp thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Spencer Ware. However, he scored 11.60 points against a projected 18.35 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • The 7.50 points scored by Paul Posluszny fell short of his 11.48-point projection, the sixth straight game where that has happened.

What If

  • If Urban Legends played JoynerJackduUp every week, they would be 8-4 this season.
  • Urban Legends would have beaten three other teams besides JoynerJackduUp this week.
  • Urban Legends would be 4-6 if they played the same schedule as JoynerJackduUp.
  • If Urban Legends had played every team in the league each week, they would be 45-63.
  • JoynerJackduUp would have lost to six other teams besides Urban Legends this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Urban Legends would have lost to JoynerJackduUp 198.34 - 149.97.
  • If they played the same schedule as Urban Legends, JoynerJackduUp would be 4-6.
  • JoynerJackduUp would be 47-61 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • The 144.06 points by Urban Legends was their lowest winning score of the season.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Urban Legends knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 144.06 points against a projected 155.05 and underachieved for the ninth time this season, including the last six weeks in a row.
  • What good are running backs if they are running backwards instead of forwards? The 16.60 total points by the RBs on Urban Legends was their smallest RB output this season.
  • The margin of victory of 7.42 points was the smallest in the league this week.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Jordan Matthews scored 8.70 points against a projected 18.61 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Although Urban Legends won, it was no thanks to Duke Johnson Jr., who scored 7.10 points and has now scored below his projection in four straight weeks.
  • With the loss, JoynerJackduUp remains winless in comeback games this season, falling to 0-4.
  • With the win, Urban Legends remains undefeated in comeback games this season, improving to 3-0.
