We're at the half-way point of the regular season!  Time to buckle down and use what we've learned about these teams to ramp up your scores for the NFL's second act!  It's still anyone's game as large jumps and even larger falls happen often in the MGT.  This week however, the game belongs to Keyser_Soze who was one of only three players to hit on the Feature Game!  His lead is slim; can he maintain?

 

########## WEEK 7 RESULTS ##########

 

Week 7 Feature Game - Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) at Dallas Cowboys
The Eagles flew right into 2nd place in the NFC East, losing to Dallas by a score of 13.5(10+3.5)-37.  Bleh.  Only Biggie, Jose and Keyser_Soze bet this game correctly.

 

QUESTIONS
1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Eagles TD, Eagles FG, Eagles safety, Cowboys TD, Cowboys FG, Cowboys safety, or other? ($900 for the correct call)
Tavon Austin took a pass 20 yards for a touchdown in the 1st quarter to kick off the scoring in this drubbing.

 

2) Moving the sticks: Which team in the Feature Game will convert the highest percentage of their 3rd downs? ($700 for the correct call)
Dallas converted 57% of their 3rd down opportunities while Philly only managed to move the sticks on 1/3rd of their attempts.  Guesses on Dallas win.

 

3) How many total rushing yards do the Raiders put up in Week 7? 0-49, 50-99, 100-149, 150-199, 200+? ($900 for the right name)
Josh Jacobs led the running game for the Raiders, tallying 124 yards.  Adding in the other players who carried the ball, Oakland put up a total of 155 yards on the ground. AbsolutSurgen was the only player to correctly call 150-199 and get the cash for this question.

 

4) Name any TWO teams that will not surpass a single-digit score in Week 7. Teams on a Bye don't count.($900 for the correct guess)

Jacksonville put up a combined 460 yards to the Bengals' 291.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week seven. ($2,500 for each player named correctly, $5,000 bonus if both names are called)

The Eagles game was so depressing I might be out for the season unless the Eagles do something as crazy as they did last year.

Damnit, you're not supposed to reply that fast. :lol:

 

Yeah, that game was a drag.  I root for the Eagles twice a year and this weekend both my teams let me down. :|
