Big drops, big gains, and everything in between as a tight line on the Feature Game turns out to be a foil for most our players!  While I'm sure he'd prefer to have had a different result on Thursday than earn more fake money, it's ManUtdRedDevils who weathers a stormy week to come out the other end on top of the MGT Leaderboard going into Week 3!

 

########## WEEK 2 RESULTS ##########

 

Week 2 Feature Game - New York Giants at Washington Football Team (-3.5)
The Football Team wins the night to break a 5 game skid against the Giants, but loses in the MGT by a score of 26.5(30-3.5)-29.  Bets on New York win. A wager I'm happy to lose.  Keyser_Sose and ManUtdRedDevils were the only players to win their bets this week.
 

QUESTIONS

1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Giants TD, Giants FG, Giants safety, Football Team TD, Football Team FG, Football Team safety, or other? ($300 for the correct call)
A first quarter Danny Jones scramble for a TD is the first score of this one. Keyser_Sose was the only player to get this right.

 

2) How many field goals (not PATs) will be scored Feature Game? ($300 for the correct call)
8 field goals were hit in this one, including the game winner with no time left on the clock. Nobody guessed this.


3) Which team in the Feature Game will have the most rushing yards by a Quarterback? ($200 for the correct call)
Daniel Jones was all over the place, rushing for 95 yards while Taylor Heinicke stayed in the pocket pretty much the entire game, scrambling only for 6.  Guesses on NY get it.  Everybody except Slug got this one.
 

4) Going deep: Name the QB that will have the longest completed pass in week 2, counting only the air distance?  ($500 for the correct call)
Russel Wilson had the longest completed air distance in Week 2, with the ball sailing 60.9 yards before the catch.  Biggie, ManUtdRedDevils and Pikachu each called Wilson's number.

 

5) Call the winners:
San Francisco at Philadelphia
Buffalo at Miami
New Orleans at Carolina
($200 for EACH correct named game winner, $400 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)
No faith in the Panthers means nobody got the bonus this week.

 

6) Name the highest AND lowest scoring teams in Week 2. ($200 for EACH correct answer)
The Bucs were the highest scoring team, hanging 48 on Atlanta.  The Dolphins were the lowest, getting blanked by the Bills at home.
Kal-El814 and thewhyteboar both nailed Tampa.  Nobody predicated Miami's no good very bad day.

 

7) Over or under 48.5 total points in the Detroit @ Green Bay game on MNF? ($200 for the correct guess)
A competitive first half sees the Pack run away with it in the second, winning over Detroit by a score of 35-17.  With 52 total points, the over wins. BasemntDweller2 and Keyser_Sose were the only players to call the over.
 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week two. ($800 for each player named correctly, $2,000 bonus if both names are called)
Derrick Henry lays down 182 yards on the ground to lead all runners while Tyler Lockett hauls in 178 yards through the air to lead the receivers.  Nobody called either player.
