Hollywood Knights picked up 25.60 points from Matt Forte and 19.70 from Derek Carr to edge Sess Chimps 118.80 to 113.88. This one just as easily could have been decided by a coin flip. The 4.92-point margin of victory was the sixth-smallest in the league this season. Like the airspeed of a coconut-laden European swallow, the score for Sess Chimps went down sharply from last week's 155.56 to 138.28 win against FamousAmousJameis. The outcome could have gone the other way, Sess Chimps had a starter score zero points (the Buffalo Bills Defense). Hollywood Knights (3-6, 1,269.40 points) inches up to eighth place while Sess Chimps (5-4, 1,192.02 points) stays in fifth place.

  • The Buffalo Bills Defense failed to score this week with 0 points against a projected 8.73.
