Smooth Moves by Longhorns

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • David Johnson didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 23.10 points, the fifth-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 14.90 points, Travis Kelce had the second-highest TE score of the week and the fourth-best TE score in the league this season.
  • With 19.90 points, Matt Ryan ranked fifth in the league this week in scoring among QBs.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Jarvis Landry have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked sixth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 19.60 points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Matthew Stafford on the bench, where he ranked third in the league in scoring with 27.50 points.
  • Left the Minnesota Vikings Defense on the bench, where they scored the ninth-most points in the league and beat their projected point total by 309.1%, the second-highest percentage in the league.
  • Derrick Henry has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 4.50 points against a projected 6.35 this week.
  • Team 4 was faced with 2 starters coming up empty in points.

What If

  • If Longhorns played Team 4 every week, they'd be 3-0 this season.
  • Besides Team 4, Longhorns would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Longhorns would have defeated Team 4 116.12 - 73.40 had they played each other last week.
  • Longhorns would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as Team 4.
  • If Longhorns had played every team in the league each week, they would be 23-4.
  • Besides Longhorns, Team 4 would have been defeated by seven other teams this week.
  • Team 4 would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as Longhorns.
  • Team 4 would be 3-24 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Longhorns scored 118.10 points against a projected 106.07 and has overachieved every week this season.
  • Longhorns had their highest score of the season and the third-highest in the league this season with 118.10 points.
  • Team 4 got a combined 44.60 points from their WRs, the highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this week.
  • The margin of victory of 52.60 points was the second-highest margin in the league this week.
  • Team 4 ranked ninth in the league in scoring this week.
  • T.Y. Hilton did his best in the loss, ranking third among all WRs in the league with 23.40 points.
  • The win by Longhorns was achieved despite having DeAngelo Williams put up a season-low 4.40 points, and underachieve for the first time this season.
  • Maybe pop in the tape of the best game of the season to feel better. Amari Cooper had a season-low 6.20 points in the win against a projected 11.01 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
