These two teams are tied for seventh place with 4-5 records, but if you want to talk points, then MR. MCGIBBLETS has a clear lead, 1,352 to 1,043. This one just as easily could have been decided by a coin flip. The 3-point margin of victory was the third-smallest in the league this season. The margin could have been larger, Red Zone Roxie had two starters score zero points.
