With a conservative bet on the Feature Game and doing very well in the Questions, thewhyteboar hangs on to his slim lead going into the Thanksgiving holiday week!  While the leaderboard seems to have stabilized in Week 12, a big jump brings one player back into contention going down the stretch (I see you, Jose)!  On to Week 13!

 

########## WEEK 12 RESULTS ##########

 

Feature Game - Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) at LA Rams
The Ravens absolutely steamrolled the hapless Rams by a score of 41.5(45-3.5)-6.  Bets on Bal'mr win.

 

QUESTIONS


1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Ravens TD, Ravens FG, Ravens safety, Rams TD, Rams FG, Rams safety, or other? ($1,800 for the correct call)
A 6 yard connection from Jackson to Brown in the 1st quarter kicked off the scoring in this one (Ravens TD).

 

2) How many total combined touchdowns will be scored in the Feature Game? ($1,800 for the correct call)
Six touchdowns were scored in the Feature Game, all by the Ravens.

 

3) Which game in Week 12 will have the highest combined score? ($1,600 for the correct game)
Two games, Dolphins @ Browns and Panthers @ Saints, tie for the top combined score in Week 12 with 65 points scored in each.  A call for either of these games gets the cash. Slug and thewhyteboar were the only players to guess one of these games.

 

4) Which QB in Week 12 will have the highest number of pass attempts? ($2,000 for the right guess)
'ol Nicky Foles had the most passing attempts for the week, chucking 48 in a losing effort for the Jags. Nobody called Foles.

 

5) Call the winners:
Seattle at Philadelphia
Denver at Buffalo
Green Bay at San Francisco
($1,500 for EACH correct named game winner, $3,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)

There wasn't a lot of faith from our players this week in San Francisco, but BasemntDweller2, Jose, and thewhyteboar each called all 3 games correct to earn the bonus!

 

6) Taking into account TOTAL DISTANCE covered on the field, name the team that will have the single longest play of Week 12. ($1,800 for the right team)
The longest play in Week 12 goes to the Redskins and Steven Sims, who covered 114 yards of total distance on his way to a 91 yard kick-off return for a touchdown in Washington's 2nd win of the season. Slug was the only player to guess the Redskins because of course he did.

 

7) Name any RB that will average 5 or more yards per carry with at least 10 attempts. ($2,000 for any correct player)
Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry, Devin Singletary, Bo Scarbrough, Mark Ingram, Rashaad Penny, and Miles Sanders each average 5 yards or greater per rush, with at least 10 attempts this week. Keyser_Soze was the only player to call one of these names right, betting on Chubb to keep up his production.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week twelve. ($5,000 for each player named correctly, $10,000 bonus if both names are called)
Derrick Henry rushed for 159 yards to lead all runners and Chris Godwin pulled in 184 receiving yards to top the receivers in Week 12.  Nobody called either player. I can't read, apparently!  Jose called Godwin! This is why you check my math, people. :P

6) Carolina 

Are you sure you want a team for #6?

Arrrrgh.  Updated OP.  I'm not sure why I said correct "team" for that one.  I need more caffeine; not on my game today.  Please select a player for Question #6.
