  • Was smart to sit the New England Patriots Defense this week, which had 2.00 points, the lowest DEF score on the team.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Dear, Deliverance: Sorry to hear you lost. Toyota Hall of Famers don't really know how that feels, but surely it can't feel great. Next week, just win.
  • You wish you had a kicker like ours. THE BRAND won the K position battle, beating Deliverance 16.00 - 7.00.
  • Deliverance lost despite having only 5 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • LeSean McCoy fell short of his scoring projection with 4.30 points, just 29.1% of his projected 14.77.

What If

  • If THE BRAND played Deliverance every week, they would be 1-1 this season.
  • THE BRAND would have beaten seven other teams besides Deliverance this week.
  • If THE BRAND had played every team in the league each week, they would be 9-9.
  • Besides THE BRAND, Deliverance would have been defeated by five other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, THE BRAND would have lost to Deliverance 81.34 - 70.82.
  • Deliverance would be 6-12 if they played every team every week.
