Steel Curtain picked up 40.50 points from Russell Wilson and 21.70 from T.Y. Hilton, destroying Orange Crush 113.10 to 78.45. These two teams are tied for eighth place with 1-4 records, but it smells like BS, as Steel Curtain knows they're the much better squad, leading in total points 647.30 to 490.30. Orange Crush definitely shouldn't play the lottery for a little while. Their luck couldn't get any worse as they are on a four-game losing streak. This game tape won't be broken down at upcoming coaching clinics, as both sides missed scoring opportunities. Steel Curtain had two starters turn in zero points and Orange Crush had four.
