Recommended Posts

In a week where almost everyone lost on the Feature Game, but a bunch of player also hit the Question 5 bonus, Biggie manages to hang on to a slim lead going into Week 9!  Will he be able to stay ahead or will someone new take the reigns?

 

Apologies for the late update this week and the short deadline.  On to Week 9!

 

########## WEEK 8 RESULTS ##########

Week 8 Feature Game - Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals (-5.5)
Green Bay beats Arizona on the scoreboard and in the MGT by a score of 24-15.5(21-5.5).  Bets on the Pack win.  Only Biggie and Keyser_Soze hit their bets this week!

 

QUESTIONS

1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Packers TD, Packers FG, Packers safety, Cardinals TD, Cardinals FG, Cardinals safety, or other? ($700 for the correct call)
Arizona goes up six early in the first with a touchdown for the first score of the game.
 

2) Name the player that will score the first TD of the Feature Game.  As always "score" means "the person holding the ball in the endzone". ($600 for the correct name)
A direct snap to Chase Edmons from 11 yards out results in the first TD on this game.  Nobody called this.
 

3) Name any team that will NOT finish their game with a double-digit score (0-9).  Teams on a Bye do not count. ($600 for the right answer)
The Lions and the Jags were the only teams that failed to reach at least 10 points in Week 8.  Only Commissar SFLUFAN and thewhyteboar called one of these two teams.
 

4) The QB who will have the highest passer rating in Week 8, with a minimum of 3 attempts. ($700 for the correct player)
Geno Smith led all QBs in passer rating in week 8 with a 128.3, going 20/24 for 195 yards, two touchdowns and no picks.  Nobody called Geno's number.

 

5) Call the winners:
Tennessee at Indianapolis
San Francisco at Chicago
Dallas at Minnesota
($500 for EACH correctly named game winner, $1,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)
Road sweep! Almost everyone got all 3 correct.  Lots of bonuses this week!

 

6) Which team will have more total offensive yardage in the Philadelphia @ Detroit game? ($500 for the right team)
In an absolute blowout of a game, the Eagles win the yardage battle 350-228 and I'm surprised it was even that close.
 

7) Unreal speed: Name the player that will reach the highest top speed while carrying the ball in Week 8. ($1,000 for the right name)
Jonathan Taylor was the fastest player in Week 8, reaching a top speed of 21.83 MPH on a 1 yard run.  Nobody named Taylor.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week eight. ($1,500 for each player named correctly, $4,000 bonus if both names are called)
Elijah Mitchell takes the rushing crown in Week 8 with 137 yards while Deebo Samuel knocked out all the other receivers with 171 in the air.  Keyser_Soze was the only player to call Mitchell and nobody saw Deebo coming.

@Slug I Think I should be at $9,395 = $9,195 - $2,000 (wrong bet) + $700 (Cardinals TD) + $1,000 (Tennessee & Dallas) + $500 for Eagles Yardage

You are correct!  Not sure where I dropped a hundred..probably a typo.  It's been fixed!
