We continue to struggle as a league. This week only 7 teams managed to score more than 100 points. For reference, at this point last season the leader had 639 total points as compared to just 562 this season. Last season, 562 points would have been good for 44th place! The decline in the quality of NFL games is hurting tv ratings and now (more importantly) it seems to be hurting our IFP scores!
Shining Force put together a nice week going 12-3 with 114 total points and eeked out the victory by one point. With the weekly win they also take over the top spot in the standings moving up 4 spots from 5th place.
Boom4Shaboom also went 12-3 but came up a point short with 113 to take 2nd place for the week. They jump 31 spots in the standings to 14th.
Other big movers this week were 2CubsFans and Ca$h Money who moved up 14 and 19 spots respectively into 7th and 8th place.
Don't look now but the Ex-Commish has a new challenger for the 84th spot in the standings. Original 3 member ZMan took advantage of the Ex-Commish's 59th place finish this week by finishing in 80th place and moving to within 12 points of the Ex-Commish!
Another 8 teams have been eliminated from Survivor.Twisted Metal can thank Shining Force for winning the week and saving them from elimination.
Head to Head
The head to head standings have been updated. Colbify had the easiest match up this week, getting the W despite a 77th place finish. For the 2nd straight week Vegas Money Line had the toughest match up and took a loss despite finishing in 12th place this week.
