The big surprise of the week… The last place and 0-fer Turkey Buzzards defeat the tied-for-first-place Fuser Heads. There are no more teams without wins. Congratulations. This really stirs the league up. I garnered the high score of the week by almost 30 points beating Bachrach on the power of Thomas Jones (NYJ) huge 32 point game, Pastor Trav’s Big Doggs dropped a very important game in blow out fashion against the first place Ritz, and Fuzzy topped the Skins. That leaves the league standings:
1. Ritz 7-2
2. Dead Skins 6-3
3. Citizen Cane 6-3
4. Fuser Heads 6-3
5. Big Doggs (Pastor Trav) 4-5
6. Bachrach 3-6
7. Skins 3-6
8. Turkey Buzzards 1-8
Right now, Pastor Trav is the only legitimate team that is not currently in the top 4 who has a shot at the playoffs. It will be a tough road, but he must at least win 2 of his last 4 combined with one of the 6-3 teams going 0-4. If he goes 0-4, he will need one of the 6-3 teams to go 2-2 and to outscore them overall. Not a very good possibility, but it is still open. None of the bottom 3 teams have a legitimate shot at the playoffs though they are not mathematically eliminated. The playoffs start in week 15 (4 weeks are left in the regular season).
In Second Chance, Chris Day and Alex are still at the top fighting it out with Chris holding to a slim 1 point lead. I am 8 points back with 7 games to go. I will need some great picks from here out to make up the ground. Due to the Thursday night game and some people not paying attention to the schedule, some picks were not made or were missed.
In LPC Vegas Style, I am strongly in first place due to an incomplete pick set by Pastor Trav, Paul is back 10 points, and with 7 games left he still is in the hunt.
