Week 12 Results
(ThePacFish) 16 - 6 (Ramsdan)
With the Xpress still coping with the crumbling of Evo streak to the hands of TJ. They couldn't believe that within a handful of days another streak had fallen and this is one not many people predicted would happen.
The Browns led by Johnny Football would grind out a big win here with JFF throwing for 173 yards and 1 TD. But the big news on the Browns side was the injury to Tate who will be attending a few tittys bars for the next few weeks as the Browns running offence will turn to Crowell in his absence. The scoreline may suggest this was a close game but it really wasn't Garoppolo showed his true colors this week throwing 4 INT and that Rams Pass Defence couldn't do anything to help their cause.
Zac Stacy tried to keep the team in the game but his 90 yards weren't enough with Stacy fumbling twice. Eventually the Browns reigned supreme here and Pac has staked his place as been one of the players to watch in the upcoming weeks as he looks all but certain to make the playoffs and hopefully he can get to the final dance. RamsDan on the other hand will be hoping his Offence can turn this around in the upcoming weeks.
(Riverman) 30-38 (Red Rhino)
Rhino finally broke the curse with a big win this week against "the worst player to ever win a bowl" Riverman. The reason for the big win was the accruacy of Wilson who lit up the Saints with 4 TDs and only 1 INT. Also that Seahawks defence was fierce with 3 INTs against the Saints. Although following the match many of us had to deal with Phils excuse that his left stick was broken. An ordinary excuse that we are usually told about when he doesn't pass the ball in FIFA.
Rhino had gone through some tough weeks and losing some close ones recently but has turned the corner and looks likely to cause a few upsets if he can continue the production that was seen in Jeffery who had 9 Recs for 135 yards and 3 TDs it won't be long before he starts challanging for the NFC West or Wildcard spots. Phil on the other hand was please with his Trent Platt clone Chandler Bowles who was able to continue his impressive rookie season with 9 recs for 155 yards and a TD. It looks likely he will go on to win the offensive rookie of the year award.
(PatsUK) 17-21 (Paddy)
Our final game takes us to the Jungle in Cincy. Where Paddy was able to get past the Bolts in a close one The Chargers ground attack was on fire with Matthews rushing for nearly 150 yards and having a touchdown in the process. Whilst the Bolts kept Hill in check for a majority of the game only allowing 33 yards. But this game was all about Andy Dalton who was in inspired form throwing for 2 TDs and 294 yards. Rivers couldnt match him only completing less than half of his throws.
The reason for the success for the Bengals here will be attributed to AJ Green, Greeer and Eifert who gave Dalton an array of targets something that cant be said for the Chargers recievers. The big thing out of this match as well as the Sack party with the Bengals having 6 sacks to the Chargers 5. In the end the Chargers will hope to maybe look to sort out the QB position and upgrade from Rivers who is at the end of his contract this season whilst the Bengals must be thinking to add pieces on the O-line to stop this sort of sack party.
- The Patriots continued to roll along this week with rookie Saul Edwards throwing 4 TDs and 431 yards in a 41-17 win.

- One week Kaepernick is a god next minute his a nobody and it showed as he threw 5 INTs against a fantastic Cards secondary who won 41-21
- Dallas turned back to Romo and it worked with a 34-7 win but it was thanks to the defence who forced 4 turnovers against the Eagles.
- Danny continued his quest to remain undefeated with a 35-23 win over Gooner, Bortles was on fire with 4 TDs and 300 passing yards.
- A week after doing the impossible TJ was nearly brought down to earth with a lucky escape against the Steelers winning 19-14 after losing Carr during the game he will be thankful its over.

3 games to watch this week
(Perrin, 5-6) @ (Kingjimi, 11-0)
As all the undefeated teams start to crumble Kingjimi remains unbeaten; this week sees him meet up with a former Xpress Superbowl winner which will be another true test to Jimi. Jimi has done really well mixing up his offence with Edwards, Gronk & Lynch making hard work for opposing defences. With the constant yardage causing trouble for many coaches. Perrin on the other hand has struggled to adjust to this Skins side injuries have set him back with Cousins and a host of other players out. But make no mistake about Perrin and his all round play ability he has some of the best user skills I've seen in the leagues on defence. I've seen how Jimi does against effective user and it is going to be imteresting to see if Perrin can turn this around. However Jimi and that high player offence has been amazing I expect this Skins defence to falter and crumble at the hands of one of the best offences the Xpress has seen.
(MixTrimmer, 5-6) @ (TottenhamDan , 11-0)
Two spuds fans going at it this week. We have another undefeated in TottenhamDan who has done remarkably things in his first two seasons in the Xpress carrying the Jags to unchartered territory. He like Jimi relies on a high power offence to keep him going. However this week things are going to get a little bit Magic should we say. Trimmer a guy who doesn't know the rules welcomes Dan but he will introduce him to the man known as Magic Mike; The fierce pass rush of the Bucs has been well documented in the past seasons with many players getting sacked by Mike. That will be where this game is won can Trimmer go BOSH on this Jags QB's or will Bortles once again have a huge day against a team who hasn't had much success stopping QB's when they get going.
(Goonertaff 5-6) @ (Cherries, 7-4)
I think its fair to say that Gooner has seen better days and those days were when he wasn't using the Titans. However he is still a player that can't be underestimated and this week he plays Cherries who is coming off a morale boosting performances as of late and appears to have found his mojo back after having a mini breakdown earlier in the season. Cherries is one of the new kids on the block looking to dethrone the old legends such as Gooner. Gooner has been long hailed as a defensive guru and his going to need to continue to live up to that reputation here to have any chance with stopping the way Cherries has his offence going as of late with Newton being a nusance both on the ground and through the air. This is one game that you think could go anyway and could have a huge impact to both teams playoff futures.
