  • Weekly Grade

U - G - L - Y. Okusacks has no alibi, as they sputtered out of the gate and lost to COWBOYS 55 to 40. A win is a win, but this one tastes just a bit sweeter for COWBOYS who gets revenge for a 103 to 94 upset loss to Okusacks in Week 5. Following a 90 to 56 loss against Shaka Brah, Okusacks saw their scoring shrink this week. COWBOYS showed some mercy in the win, starting a player with zero points (Michael Thomas). COWBOYS (3-11, 1,219 points) remains mired in the cellar while Okusacks (4-10, 1,223 points) stays down in ninth place.

Smooth Moves by COWBOYS

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Don't worry, Okusacks, the Toyota Hall of Fame says losing isn't contagious. But it is embarrassing. And you should be embarrassed.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 18 points scored by Tyreek Hill on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 204.6%, the fourth-highest percentage in the league.
  • Martellus Bennett, who was left on the bench, exceeded his 5.73-point projection with 13 points.
  • Should've started Cam Newton, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting QB with 10 against a projected 17.25.
  • The lowest score by a player for Okusacks this week was 1 point from Larry Fitzgerald. The score was below his projected points of 9.75, which marks the fourth straight week where that has happened.

What If

  • COWBOYS would be 7-7 if they played Okusacks every week.
  • COWBOYS would have beaten only one other team besides Okusacks this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? COWBOYS would have defeated Okusacks 62 - 56 had they played each other last week.
  • COWBOYS would be 4-8 if they played the same schedule as Okusacks.
  • If COWBOYS had played every team in the league each week, they would be 38-87-1.
  • Okusacks would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as COWBOYS, Okusacks would be 3-9.
  • Okusacks would be 45-81 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • With 40 points, Okusacks scored the fewest points in the league this week and had the lowest score of any team this season.
  • Okusacks underachieved for the sixth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row, scoring 40 points against a projected 82.77 this week.
  • When the going gets tough, the tough are supposed to get going. However, Okusacks stalled out again and extended their losing streak to three games.
  • COWBOYS won by scoring 55 points, the lowest winning score in the league this season.
  • Russell Wilson scored a season-low 1 point and underachieved for the third straight week.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 2 total points by the WRs on COWBOYS was their lowest WR output this season.
  • The margin of victory for the matchup ended up being the smallest in the league this week at 15 points.
  • COWBOYS won despite failing to reach their projected point total, improving to 1-6 when doing so. Okusacks also failed to reach their point expectation and falls to 0-6 in such games.
