Oh boy, we have our first 200-burger! Mahomes-Under-the-Hammer beating Tony into submission. In fact, with Cook and Mahomes combining for 95 points, Mahomes-Under-the-Hammer could have beaten both Mikedixon22Patriots and Rob’s Crown-Takers with just those 2 players alone!

NFL Week 7 2020 Round Up

Week 7

And then there was one… by the end of week 7 we were left with just one undefeated team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Titans’ Gostkowski missed a last ditch game tying field goal and couldn’t prevent the Steelers moving to 6-0.

The Falcons deserve another shout out for yet another laughable finish, this time Gurley flopping down over the line when trying ‘not’ to score! He goes in to the end zone and lets the Lions get the ball back and what followed is standard for all ATL fans by now – another defeat from the jaws of victory.

Same shit, different game!

Washington scalped the Cowboys and the Chiefs destroyed the Broncos despite not playing that well but the Bears and, obviously, the Jets lost. 

More major injuries this week as 2020 continues its cruel cull. Odell Beckham and Dede Westbrook tore ACLs and Landon Collins heads to IR requiring Achilles surgery.  Kenyan Drake and Jeff Wilson suffered high ankle sprains and you have to feel particularly bad for Wilson given the breakout game he was having.

Antonio Brown is now officially a Buccaneer and another pro-bowl WR is back around the NFL, Dez Bryant was signed to  the Ravens’ practice squad. I think everyone will be getting the popcorn ready for the return of AB, let’s hope it’s his on field antics we get to enjoy rather than the off-field circus!

Week 7 Bet Results

2-3 this week but it was all over before we got started, Tony jinxing it all by making a (losing) Thursday night pick. Rule number 1 – leave out the early game!

Rob maintains his lead at the top, beating Tom to go 6-1. We very nearly had our first 200-burger with Generic-Fantasy-Name winning with 199.12! So close. Mark lost again and remains rooted to the foot of the table but Tony continues his winning streak and finds himself with a winning record.

NFL Week 6 2020 Round Up

We’ve got a free to enter competition for you this week, so make sure to read to the bottom for your chance to win some signed collectables!

Week 6 NFL Results

In a week where you rush for over 150 yards, you’d expect to be the top rusher but sorry Clyde, sorry Kenyan, Derrick Henry says hello. With a staggering 212 yards on the ground and another 52 receiving, Henry helped the Titans to remain unbeaten. The Brady-led Tampa Bay dismantled the cheese-heads leaving just 3 unbeaten teams; the Seahawks, the Steelers and of course Henry’s Titans, all at 5-0.

On to our teams then. Relying on their formidable defence, the Bears grind it out again to move to a tasty 5-1. I might just start copying and pasting this next sentence for Tom and Marks boys: “Washington and the Jets both lost again“. The Jets failed to register even a point this week against Tony’s Dolphins but we did get our first glimpse of Tua. Rob’s team, the Chiefs, complete the Far From Lombardi mini-round up, they got the win against the Bills, joining the Bears at 5-1. Mahomes was breaking records again, becoming the fastest to 90 career passing touchdowns (37 games), beating Dan Marino’s previous record of 90 in 40 games.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Results

We now have a clear leader in the listener league as Rob’s Crown-Takers take top spot with a victory over the struggling Generic-Fantasy-Name. Rob capitalised on a slip up by Mahomes-Under-The-Hammer who was beat out by mikedixon22patriots. Speaking of hammers, Mark’s prejudiciously monikered Skins took their weekly hammering, this week it was from yours truly but wins for both TonyFarFromLombardi and Tom’s A-Bad-Gase-of-Mono complete a solid week for the Far From Lombardi team.
