PICKERS defy projections, defeat Naked Canadians, 98.48-80.54
PICKERS brought their A game, coming out on top with a 98.48-80.54 win over Naked Canadians, who fell short of projections. Naked Canadians nabbed a 20.14-point lead on Thursday behind stellar efforts from Hunter Henry, who caught 4 passes for 30 yards and a touchdown for 11 points, and Philip Rivers, who passed for 207 yards and 2 touchdowns (9.14 points). But PICKERS held the lead the rest of the way, powered by the Baltimore Ravens defense (13 Pts Allowed, 307 Yds Allowed, 3 Turnovers) and Jamison Crowder (5 Rec, 81 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD). PICKERS (5-5) will look to keep it rolling against Blacula's Bums, while Naked Canadians (4-6) will attempt to develop some positive momentum against 24 Eh!.
Philip Rivers had a 45-yard pass for Naked Canadians, contributing to a 20.14-0.00 lead for Naked Canadians.
Jamison Crowder had a 23-yard touchdown catch for PICKERS to contribute to a 93.12-66.64 lead for the team.
Aaron Rodgers had a 48-yard pass for PICKERS, contributing to a 98.48-72.54 lead for the team.
Barber (43 Rush Yds, 1 Rush TD) scored 11.2 points against the Cardinals in Week 10. His scoring output more-than-doubled his 4.38-point projection and was much higher than his 7.08-point season scoring average. Barber will face the Saints next week.
Here's a list of scenarios where it's somewhat acceptable to go 0-for-2 in sports: A double-fault in tennis, a hitter's line in baseball, and a pair of Shaquille O'Neal free throws. That's basically it. Going 0-for-2 on field goal attempts this past week? It's quite possible that Stephen Hauschka just kicked himself to the waiver wire after this effort.
Two touchdowns and three interceptions for Philip Rivers against the Raiders this week. Four wins and six losses for Naked Canadians on the 2019 season. Now, normally I'm pretty old-school when it comes to these fancy numbers... but my analytics folks are telling me they're not thrilled about this matching 3-to-2 INT-to-TD, Loss-to-Win ratio!
