Steel Reign pulled out a 12-point victory against my beloved Sawtooths after Sawtooths QB Andy Dalton broke his thumb, scoring a mere 0.95 points. As a result, it was a close game and ultimately went down to the MNF Game between the Giants and Dolphins. The Rebel Alliance ran through Lynn's Brewmasters and put up a week-high 196.45 points. Great job and congratulations to those who advanced to the next round.
More analysis after the jump.
As mentioned above, the Sawtooths appeared to be doomed when Andy Dalton broke his thumb in the first quarter of his matchup. But the rest of the team stepped up and Reed went into MNF with a chance to win. Alas, it wasn't enough and they lost to Fitzgerald.
Meanwhile, the Rebels annihilated the Brewmasters. Lynn had spotty QB play all season and it wasn't any different this week. Brian Hoyer managed to get less than six points, but Lynn wasn't beating Roe no matter how many Hoyer scored. Roe's 196 points put him within earshot of outscoring the Brew Crew by 100 points.
So, now we have the semifinals to look forward to. They feature the top three seeds and the #5 seed. Anything can happen at this point.
