The streak is due in part to Sonoma Winos having the highest scoring output in the league at 139.18 points per matchup. Sonoma Winos started three players with zero points while Crusaders served up five goose eggs, meaning both teams left points off the scoreboard. Crusaders slides to ninth place with a 4-5 record.

Smooth Moves by Sonoma Winos

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Mike Evans led the league in scoring and had the 11th-most points in the league this season with 42.00.
  • Frank Gore put the team on his back with 21.10 points, the seventh-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • Sonoma Winos won despite having 3 of their 9 starters score zero points.
  • Chris Ivory had a season-high 11.70 points and beat his projected point total by 119.9%, the 10th-highest percentage in the league.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some teams are destined to beat teams like Crusaders and move on to Toyota Hall of Fame greatness. Ironically, you are included in that destiny, because you played yourself.
  • This is one of those mistakes that you continuously think about for ten years. Did not start Marcus Mariota, who scored 35.92 points to rank fifth in the league in scoring.
  • Left Jimmy Graham on the bench, where he scored the ninth-most points in the league and beat his projected point total by 180.4%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
  • Did not start Rashad Jennings, who underachieved but still scored more than any RB on the team with 6.90 points against a projected 10.45.
  • The WRs on Crusaders let them down, resulting in a 71.00 - 20.60 difference at the position.

What If

  • Sonoma Winos would be 8-1 if they played Crusaders every week.
  • Besides Crusaders, Sonoma Winos would have beaten only three other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Sonoma Winos would have defeated Crusaders 127.90 - 116.02 had they played each other last week.
  • Sonoma Winos would be 7-1 if they played the same schedule as Crusaders.
  • If Sonoma Winos had played every team in the league each week, they would be 71-28.
  • Crusaders would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Sonoma Winos, Crusaders would be 3-5.
  • If they played every team every week, Crusaders would be 27-72.
