Not to be deterred, LIONPWR got it going later that afternoon, as Christian McCaffrey (25.1 points) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (15.75) put them back ahead once and for all. This marks the second time this season LIONPWR have knocked off Budd Light, after winning 208.6-188.3 in their last matchup.

There were multiple players with highlight-reel moments on both teams early Sunday, but it was Budd Light who emerged with the lead, 131.3-110.1. Marquise Brown had a 20-yard touchdown catch and a 49-yard catch for LIONPWR, while Golden Tate had a 61-yard touchdown catch. Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes had a 63-yard touchdown pass for Budd Light, while Jameis Winston had a 49-yard pass.
Joey Slye had a 50-yard field goal for LIONPWR to contribute to a 188.2-180.5 lead for the team.
While catching 4 passes for 95 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Jets, Tate tallied 23.9 points this week. His scoring output more-than-doubled his 11.93-point projection and was much higher than his 9.52-point season scoring average. Tate will face the Bears next week.
Hey, we'll definitely take the win, LIONPWR! Having said that, if we want to ramp our performance up to the next level, then we have found an area to improve: our quarterbacks were significantly outplayed this past week. Our two men under center combined for just 33.1 points in Week 10, while the QBs for Budd Light doubled us up with a score of 67.2. Let's put some more effort into scouting those upcoming defenses!
Well, we can't really whine about a shortage of opportunities this time, can we? Our pass-catching corps (four WR and one TE) collectively saw a healthy 34 targets in Week 10. With just 20 total receptions, that group may be showing signs of chemistry issues.
