Hey, do they give trophies for effort? Nope, well then Cops and Rodgers won't be receiving a trophy for their performance against The Grateful Dez this season, losing yet again, 129 to 109. Cops and Rodgers should maybe just stop showing up against The Grateful Dez, who has an average margin of victory of 46 points when they play.

The last time these teams met, Philip Rivers led with 36. The Grateful Dez is averaging 140.00 points against Cops and Rodgers and beat them 151 to 80 in Week 5.

Smooth Moves by The Grateful Dez

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of The Grateful Dez either way.
  • With 22 points against a projected 15.62, Jordy Nelson ranked ninth in the league in scoring and has now overachieved in three straight games.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to T.Y. Hilton. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring with 26 points.
  • There are rumors that the military wants to model a new all-terrain vehicle based off of Lamar Miller. He had the sixth-highest score among RBs in the league this week with 18 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Travis Kelce scored 15 points to rank fourth among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Next week, be sure to ask The Grateful Dez where official Toyota Hall of Fame articles are kept.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left LeSean McCoy on the bench, where he ranked ninth in the league in scoring with 22 points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. Cops and Rodgers thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Jeremy Langford. However, he scored 1 point against a projected 2.74 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • Cops and Rodgers could have used more points from the TE position, where The Grateful Dez beat them 15 - 1.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Coby Fleener had a season-low 1 point against a projected 8.06 and scored below his projection for the eighth time this season.

What If

  • If The Grateful Dez played Cops and Rodgers every week, they'd be 12-2 this year.
