Rapids Plungers (133.55) vs Starrfavrerodg (115.19)
We talked about in the preview how both of these teams have struggled in the playoffs over the years but Rapids Plungers took care of business in this one as they held on for a 18 point win over Starrfavrerodg! Rapids Plungers got another HUGE game from McCaffrey as he put up 39.27 points to lead them to a victory and that really was the difference. If he has a good game, lets say 20 points then Starrfavrerodg wins this one but instead he went out and did what he has most of the season and completely dominated leading Rapids Plungers to the next round! This one is going to sting for awhile for Starrfavrerodg as there was paths to victory for them. For example, they changed QB’s later in the week to go with S. Howell over J. Browning. That decision cost them 13.97 points. If Browning starts over Howell the final score would have been 133.55 to 129.16 but wait there is more. The decision at TE was between D. Schulz who has been good when on the field or the up and comer in T. Kraft. They went with Schulz (6.90) points while Kraft put up 12.85. If they flip those two you, the final score is Starrfavrerodg 135.11 and Rapids Plungers 133.55. That’s a tough way to lose AND to make it even a little worse CMC was once on their team and they traded him to Rapids Plungers midway through the season. It was another solid season for Starrfavrerodg that ends however in another first round playoff exit. Rapids Plungers is getting hot at just the right time as they won 3 of their last 4 entering the playoffs and had another strong showing here. They look like a team that is poised for another Championship. Rapids Plungers vs Pack Attack next week with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Should be a good one!
BIGBOY! (162.91) vs DaUnderdog (90.58)
WOW! What a dominating performance from BIGBOY! as they embarrassed DaUnderdog on the playoff stage! Winning by 72 points is a monster effort no matter the week but to do that in the first round of the playoffs against one of the hottest teams is extremely impressive! This was their best week of the season and despite them sneaking into the playoffs they showed that all that doesn’t matter and it is all about how you play in these playoff games. They had 7 positions score 14 or more points and three of those scored 24 or more! That is exactly what you need to do come playoff time as you need contributions from all 11 positions! It was great to see both Kupp and Waddle have big games on the same week as it seems as though that rarely happen throughout the season. All of a sudden this team that came into the playoffs as a bit of a underdog now is just 2 wins away from their 3rd championship! DaUnderdog had a really solid season but they picked a really bad time to have one of their worst week of the season! I am not sure it would have mattered much anyway as BIGBOY! was not losing this game. DaUnderdog now gets to focus on other things like a new baby coming and whether or not the Packers will finally fire Joe Barry! A solid season for DaUnderdog and we will see you next year! BIGBOY! vs Bossman for a trip to the Super Bowl! Let’s do this!
