Naked Canadians fall short of expectations, succumb to 24 Eh! in 108.24-85.30 rout
Naked Canadians were unable to rise to the occasion, as 24 Eh! rolled to a 108.24-85.30 win. It didn't take long to learn who would be the frontrunner in this matchup, as 24 Eh! grabbed a 48.58-point lead early Sunday afternoon behind stellar efforts from Lamar Jackson (28.44 points) and Mark Andrews (24.2). Nick Chubb (62 Rush Yds, 1 Rush TD, 36 Rec Yds) and Matt Breida (121 Rush Yds, 11 Rec Yds) led the charge for Naked Canadians in defeat. 24 Eh! (2-0) will look to add to their success against Project Mayhem, while Naked Canadians (0-2) will attempt to right the ship against Toronto Argonauts.
There were multiple players with big-time plays on both teams early Sunday, but after all was said and done, 24 Eh! had an 89.24-40.66 lead. Lamar Jackson teamed up with Mark Andrews for a 27-yard touchdown pass for 24 Eh!. Jackson also lit up the scoreboard with a 41-yard pass. Meanwhile, JuJu Smith-Schuster had a 45-yard catch for Naked Canadians, while Philip Rivers had a 47-yard pass.
Brandin Cooks had a 57-yard catch for Naked Canadians, who trailed 103.14-67.50 after the late afternoon slate.
Against the Cardinals in Week 2, Andrews caught 8 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. In doing so, he put up 24.2 points to nearly triple his 8.22-point projection, the highest percent increase of any player on 24 Eh! this week. Andrews will square off against the Chiefs in Week 3.
Hey, the key to football is exploiting the mismatches. Fueled by a solid showing from Lamar Jackson, we thoroughly outplayed Naked Canadians at the quarterback position this past week (28.44 points to 6.06). Jackson went 24-for-37 for 272 yards and two TDs in a 23-17 win over the Cardinals.
Wait, our starting QB tossed an interception and not a single touchdown? Maybe we need to go back and review the game tape. Was Philip Rivers actually that off-rhythm with his receiving crew, or were the Lions just that strong against the pass? What do you think, Naked Canadians, do we continue to start him with confidence?
