  • Weekly Grade

Like some kind of dynamic duo, Matt Ryan and Matt Forte carried Longhorns, leading the way to a 91.66 to 77.08 victory over Team 10. They recorded 27.76 and 15.70 points, respectively. Team 10 has had a string of bad luck lately and is on a three-game losing streak. Team 10 put in a solid effort with a much higher point total compared to last week's 63.92 to 45.60 loss against tappingthatass. If Team 10 didn't have three starters put up goose eggs, it could have gone the other way. Longhorns (7-2, 980.26 points) remains in first place while Team 10 (4-5, 671.04 points) stays in seventh place.

Smooth Moves by Longhorns

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Longhorns, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Matt Ryan. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring with 27.76 points.
  • Picked up the Carolina Panthers Defense, which beat their scoring projection by 61.8%, which led the team.
  • The 15.70 points scored by Matt Forte was the seventh-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Donte Moncrief posterizing opponents. He had the 10th-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 11.50 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.
  • Missed out on an opportunity by leaving the 19.40 points scored by Jason Witten on the bench this week. He outperformed his projected point total by 184.9%, the third-highest percentage in the league.
  • Team 10 had 3 of their 9 starters score zero points.
  • The WRs on Team 10 let them down, resulting in a 20.40 - 1.90 difference at the position.
  • The 4.00 points scored by Blair Walsh was a season-low. He had a projected 8.83-point total, and has now underachieved in seven straight games.

What If

  • Longhorns would be 8-1 if they played Team 10 every week.
  • Besides Team 10, Longhorns would have defeated five other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Longhorns would have defeated Team 10 129.32 - 45.60.
  • Longhorns would be 8-0 if they played the same schedule as Team 10.
  • If Longhorns had played every team in the league each week, they would be 68-13.
  • Team 10 would have lost to four other teams besides Longhorns this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Longhorns, Team 10 would be 1-7.
  • Team 10 would be 24-57 if they played every team every week.
