Maybe Megaman - X will be able to figure out what the phrase "by the skin of my teeth" means after this narrow victory, edging Ed Hochuli's Biceps 96 to 95 to remain undefeated in head-to-head matchups. Ed Hochuli's Biceps isn't an easy win for Megaman - X, who has an average margin of victory of 8 points when they play. That's thinner than their 29.50-point average margin of victory for the season. Furthermore, Megaman - X has a 90.50-point average score in the series, just 78.1% of their total season average. This week, Jordan Matthews was the winning factor, grabbing 15 points. It was still quite a drop-off from the 20 points Devonta Freeman got the last time these teams played. Megaman - X beat Ed Hochuli's Biceps 85 to 70 in Week 5.
