Smooth Moves by Ray Finkle

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Antonio Brown posterizing opponents. He had the seventh-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 18.30 points.
  • DeMarco Murray led the team in scoring for the second time this season with 19.20 points.
  • Dwayne Allen scored 14.00 points to beat his projected point total by 110.2%, which led the matchup.
  • With only 3 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, Ray Finkle was still able to win.

  • Golden Tate scored 6.00 points against a projected 10.11 and has now underachieved in every game this season.

  • It was not a good week for Dak to the future at TE, where they were beaten 14.00 - 2.50.
