The leaderboard sees a lot of movement, but Keyser_Soze manages to hold on to the top spot in Week 2!  But the season is young and every player is one good week away from first place.  Can he hold on?

 

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

 

Week 2 Feature Game - Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles (-2.5)
The Vikings fall to the Birds by a score of 7-21.5(24-2.5).  Bets on Philly win.

 

QUESTIONS
1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Vikings TD, Vikings FG, Vikings safety, Eagles TD, Eagles FG, Eagles safety, or other? ($200 for the correct call)
Jalen Hurts calls his own number with a 3 yard keeper for a TD and the first points on the game. Biggie was the only player to call it.

 

2) Which team in the Feature Game willl have the higher average yards per play? ($200 for the correct answer)
The NFL's data is busted on this one for the Feature Game for some reason, so everyone gets it.  Free fake money for all!

 

3) Which team in the Feature Game will give up the most turnovers? ($200 for the correct call)
No fumbles by either team, but Minnesota threw 3 picks to just 1 for the Eagles.  Vikings is the call.

 

4) Which team will score LAST in the Sunday Night match-up between the Bears and the Packers?  ($200 for the correct call)
The Pack gets the last word with a 4th quarter Crosby field goal.

 

5) Call the winners:
New England at Pittsburgh
Arizona at Las Vegas
Tampa Bay at New Orleans
($200 for EACH correct named game winner, $300 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)
A sweep for the road teams.  MGT players didn't have a lot of faith in Arizona this week, making Kal-El814 the only player to nail all three picks for the bonus!

 

6) Over or Under: 44.5 total points in the Houston @ Denver match-up. ($200 for the correct guess)
The Texans and Broncos managed to scrape together 25 total points between them.  The under gets it.

 

7) Name both the highest AND lowest scoring teams of Week 2. ($400 for EACH correct answer)
The Dolphins put up 42 points to be the highest scoring team of Week 2 while the Colts got blanked in Jacksonville to be the lowest.  Nobody called either team.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week two. ($900 for each player named correctly, $2,000 bonus if both names are called)
Aaron Jones racked up 132 rushing yards and Tyreek Hill had 190 receiving to be your Week 2 leaders. Nobody called either player.
