Cardinals overcome sloppy play to vanquish 49ersBoth teams came out with vastly different looking teams from last season. Both QB's showed flashes of why these teams believe in them but they also each made their fair share of mistake as well.
The 49ers started slow, unable to get anything going on offense while Mettenberger was on fire, starting the game 8/10 and finding TE Gresham and WR John Brown for 1st half TD's. A Catanzaro FG would give the Cardinals a 17-0 lead going into half.
The 2nd half didn't start much better for SF as Mettenberger led another drive straight down field for and found Fitzgerald for a 26 yard TD, his 3rd of the day. However, the Cardinals would miss the ensuing extra point which seemed to give the 49ers some momentum. Hundley would come right out and find rookie Eric Aiken in the endzone on a 56 yard pass, the Cardinals threw an INT and Hundley again found Aiken, this time for a 79 yard TD. Mettenberger would calm things down a bit by leading a methodical drive that would end in another John Brown TD.
In the 4th, the Niners would get another big pass, this one to RB Carlos Hyde but a missed 2 PT conversion would leave the lead at 30-20 Cardinals. The next possession saw a huge fumble and Hyde took it in for a TD that would see the Niner draw to within a FG 30-27. San Francisco would come up with a huge stop to give them the ball with a little over 4 minutes to play. However, on a QB rollout, Hundley fumbled the ball and Arizona LB Sean Weatherspoon scooped it up and took it to the house to seal the deal.
Great game publik drunk
As always bud, just seen the future of the Division at both QBs. Such an up and down game. Games like that are always better after they are over lol. See you in a few weeks
Panthers pull away lateThis one started off as a bit of a dud. Both teams struggled to get much going on the offensive side of the ball. The Panthers stingy defense would force Drew Brees into 3 early interception but was only able to turn them into 7 points once. Cam Newton would struggle early an struggle often. Missing wide open receivers which seem to be on every other throw. Cam finished the game an abysmal 11/33 for 121 yards a 1 TD. The only bright spot for Cam would be the goose egg he had in the turnover category. The running game was led by the two headed monster of Johnathen Stewart an Cameron Artis Payne. They would lead the Panthers offense with 23 carries for 209 yards an 2 TD's.
The defense on the other hand was another story. By the looks of things they look to have picked up where they left off last year. The Panthers defense would pick-off Brees an Grayson a total of 4 times, led by Rookie Strong Safety Denard Gray who picked Drew Brees off once an Garret Grayson off once. All-Pro Luke Kuechly would led the Panthers defense an the highly touted linebackers with 7 solo tackles an 1 interception. Coming into this game Carolina knew they would have to put a lot of pressure on Brees so he couldn't get comfortable with his new targets in Mohammud Sanu an Torrey Smith. With getting pressure being a point all week during practice Charles Johnson an Mario Addison took it into there own hands to get it done as they would account for all 5 sacks in the game. Carolina travels to Arizona next week for an NFC showdown.
Great game CaseyW22
Patriots Open New Season with a BANG!
Many had wondered what this new look Patriots team would look like. How will Garoppolo due as a full time starter? Can Coach Murphy really lead this team? With Game 1 in the books, it looks like this team is going to be just fine.
The Patriots started fast only taking 3 plays and 1 pass to score there first TD when Garoppolo found newly acquired TE Kyle Rudolph wide open for a 59 yd TD. Miami was able to quickly answer as Tannehill found Devaney Parker on a quick slant the turned into a 91 yd TD for the WR. After trading a few punts, Garoppolo was able to hit Mike Wallace on a quick screen, that he turned into a magnificent 66 yd TD.
Q1 - NE 14 - MIA 7.
The 2nd quarter was all Patriots as they pick up where they left off. Garoppolo found Spiller on a quick hitch, and he zig-zagged his way for a 74 yd TD reception. The half came to a close with a chip shot FG from Gostkowski.
Q2 - NE 24 - MIA 7
The second half was much of the same from the Patriots. More defense, more scoring. Miami was once again shutout in this quarter. However, the Patriots were able to add two more TDs. The first was a gorgeous play action pass to Gronkowski from Garoppolo for a 42 yd TD. The second we saw Spiller take a hand off for a 4 yd TD run.
Q3 - NE 41 - MIA 7
The 4th quarter saw the Patriots go to back ups offensively and focus on getting out of the game injury free. The Dolphins, however, wanted to focus on improving. Miller broke off a 42 yd run to help fantasy owners out, and then capped the drive with 3 yd TD run.
Final - NE 41 - MIA 14
J. Garoppolo - 14/22 356 yd 4 TDs
CJ Spiller - 20 car 96 yds 1 TD 2 cat 85 yds 1 TD
R. Gronkowski - 5 cat 94 yds 1 TD
M. Wallace - 3 cat 79 yds 1 TD
K. Rudolph - 1 cat 59 yds 1 TD
R. Tannehill - 12/25 205 yds 1 TD 1 INT
L. Miller - 15 car 73 yds 1 TD 1 FUM
D. Parker - 3 cat 104 yds 1 TD
Steelers Don't Give Up, 4th Quarter Comeback Over Bengals
Steelers fell behind early and would never take the lead until their final drive of the game. Big Ben hooked up with Antonio Brown 11 times on this day, and none were more important than the last score, a 51 yard catch and run from the leading reception WR last season, only 40 seconds remained for the Bengals to get the go ahead TD in which they failed to accomplish. Steelers would struggle on the ground all game, and falling behind early led to putting the ball in Ben's hands, who threw for a record 587 yards, 4 TDs and no interceptions. I tried to make highlights, but twitch won't upload to youtube at the moment, but I'll keep working on that.

EAGLES START YEAR OFF 1-0
With the key victory at home over the visiting Seahawks. DeMarco Murray put the ball on the ground 3 times before being benched by HC Chip Kelly. RB R. Mathews played well in his time as starter. The Eagles D was able to force a few key interceptions on R. Wilson to keep the game close. The Hawks drove late in the 4th with hopes to tie with 2 desperate heaves to WR J. Kearse who somehow caught both balls. But the luck ran out as their drive stalled in the redzone allowing Geno to take knees to secure the victory.
Week 1 Cowboys beat the Packers at Lambeau
Browns Cough Up Opener
Stop me if you've heard this one before. The Cleveland Browns have lost their 12th consecutive season opener. A streak that requires more skill to be this bad than to actually get lucky and win one every so often. The game started promising for the Browns scoring the first ten points of the game. The second quarter would start with a bang as Johnny Manziel would overthrow a streaking Travis Benjamin. Jimmy Smith had it played perfectly as he never let Benjamin beat him. The former Colorado Buff picked off the pass and saw Benjamin streak by him leaving Smith untouched to the endzone to start the scoring for Baltimore. The game would have a back and forth feel with the Browns extending their lead and having immediately shrunk back down. The Ravens would finally stop the Browns and score again early in the third to give the Ravens their first lead at 28-24. After exchanging punts the Browns would get the ball inside their own 5 where this time Webb would pick off a deep pass, this time intended for Josh Gordon. The Ravens would get into plus territory when Joe Flacco threw a pick to Tramon Williams who made a fantastic break on the ball. Williams would take it all the way to the house to reclaim the Browns lead. Midway through the 4th after trying earlier in the game to pop the top on the Browns defense, Joe Flacco was finally successful. After a beautiful Andy Lee punt pinned the Ravens inside the 5, Flacco found Perriman streaking down the sideline with single coverage. Perriman went al the way to the endzone for the 95 yard score. On the ensuing possession the Browns would take the ball inside the red zone with under a minute to go. A field goal was no good to the Browns as they were down 4, so with 24 seconds to go on second and goal Johnny Manziel took a shotgun snap and was quickly flushed to his right. Knowing time was running low Johnny decided to extend the play rather than chuck it through the back of the endzone. This would prove costly as the 3rd year pro would get hit, fumbling the football where it would be scooped up by a Raven just before going out of bounds. Ball game over. 35-31 Ravens win. 12th consecutive season opening defeat. Great game Papa Perry
Week 2 Cowboys go on the road and beat the Redskins to improve to 2-0
WEEK 1 - SIM RESULT
WEEK 2 -- Colts @ Titans
The game was much closer than the score would indicate as the Titans scored 3 TDs in the 4th to put the game out of reach. The Tennessee OL had their way on the day as the Titans rolled up almost 250 yards rushing and pounded the Colts D all day. Well played Freakskull and looking forward to the return fixture.
Good stuff man! Really like how you put the scoring plays in as links. Great idea
Packers fall to Cowboys and the Preacherman
GG charter04 and i hope someone breaks your rookie WR's hip
Bills start fast, allow the Texans to come back, but the Defense responds to give them the victory...Madden asked me to throw up a 50 burger like he didn't know we were in a sim league, meh..enjoy the highlights below...GG to the Texans

Patriots Tested by Browns
Game 1 of the 2016 season saw Garropolo show that he has the stuff to replace Brady. But, one game a season/career does not make. How would Jimmy follow up his stellar performance in week 2? How about throwing for more yards and more TDs?
The Patriots opened up scoring taking the first drive down and capping it with an 18 yd TD to Gronkowski. Cleveland showed they were going to test that Patriots Defense. The responded with a TD drive of their own when Barnidge caught a 14 yd TD from Manziel. JG would not be out-dueled and showed what he had as he hit Wallace for a 56 yd TD on a corner route.
Q1 - NE 14 - CLE 7
The Patriots defense started to show up and started forcing some stops. The lead was extended when Gronk caught his 2nd TD of the game with his own 56 yd catch. The Browns would not go away, as Josh Gordon out jumped Malcolm Butler in the endzone for a 14 yd TD with 22 seconds left in the half. BUT WAIT! You thought it was halftime? NOPE! Garropolo marched the team down the field in 3 plays, including a 53 yd - 1 hand catch, while double covered pass to Mike Wallace. This was then followed by a 10 yd TD catch by Julian Edelman with 4 sec left in the half. NOW it's half time.
Q2 - NE 28 - CLE 14
The 3rd quarter was a relatively quiet quarter with the only scoring being a 5 yd TD run by Brandon Bolden.
Q3 - NE 35 - CLE 14
The fourth was barely 30 seconds old when Cleveland answered with another TD to Barnidge on a 19 yd catch where he made Hightower just look silly in coverage. Less than 5 min of game time later though Jimmy G found Spiller in a screen pass that he took to the house for a 46 yd TD. That would end Garropolo's night and scoring by both teams. So far Jimmy has looked spectacular with 9 TDs and 1 INT in his first two games AND he has yet to finish a game. Can the Pats keep this up? We'll find out next week as the play host to Buffalo.
Final - NE 42 - CLE 21
J. Garopolo - 22/28 413 yds 5 TDs 1 INT
CJ Spiller - 20 car 53 yds 3 cat 52 yds 1 TD
B. Bolden - 7 car 44 yds 1 TD
M. Wallace - 6 cat 164 yds 1 TD
R. Gronkowski - 4 cat 97 yds 2 TDS
J. Edelman - 4 cat 30 yds 1 TD
J. Manziel - 19/29 211 yds 3 TDs
G. Barnidge - 6 cat 85 yds 2 TDs
J. Gordon - 3 cat 39 yds 1 TD

Garoppolo's Cannon Sinks Bills Ship
(Week 3 Edition)
Week 3 arrived with locker room buzz over Garoppolo being named the NFL Offensive Player of the week after his spectacular week 2 performance. However, in the NFL there's no time to celebrate in season, as each week a new opponent is looking to steal your joy. This week it's the 2-0 Buffalo Bills looking to knock off the Patriots in the Daddy Leagues game of the week.
The Patriots continues their opening drive perfection by scoring a TD in all three games. This week the first Bell was rung when Spiller ran up the gut for an untouched 6 yd TD. The Patriots DEF shoes up early forcing BUF to punt. Spiller rang the bell a 2nd time in the quarter when he took a screen pass 35 yds to pay dirt for his 2nd TD. The defense showed that it isn't perfect when it left Robert Woods wide open and Sammy Watkins pancaked Logan Ryan for a way too easy 64 yd TD catch. With the pressure on, Garoppolo marched the Pats down the field and found Gronkowski for a 6 yd TD.
Q1 - NE 21 - BUF 7
The second quarter was all about the Mike Wallace - Jimmy Garoppolo connection. The payroll hooked up for 2 TDs on back to back drives. The first was a 22 yd catch and run, followed by a 42 yd catch and run. Buffalo would not go quietly into the night though. Rookie Jared Hoag found Charles Clay for a 19 yd TD with 29 sec left in the half. Last week we saw the Browns leave Jimmy 22 sec and he found pay dirt, no way it happens again, right? WRONG! Jimmy marched the Pats down the field and hit Mike Wallace for his 3rd TD catch of the quarter just as the clock hit 0:00.
Q2 - NE 42 - BUF 14
The 2nd half was all defense as the only points scored were off the foot of Gostkowski as he put his lone FG through.
Q3 - NE 45 - BUF 14
The only thing of note in the 4th quarter is that once again Jimmy G was sitting on the sideline sporting a PERFECT QB Rating of 158.3.
Final - NE 45 - BUF 14
J. Garoppolo - 18/23 313 yds 5 TDS
CJ Spiller - 23 car 150 yds 1 TD 1 FUM 3 cat 44 yds 1 TD
B. Bolden - 9 car 61 yds
M. Wallace - 5 cat 139 yds 3 TDs
R. Gronkowski - 6 cat 95 yds 1 TD
J. Hoag - 12/29 235 yds 2 TDs 3 INTS
L. McCoy - 21 car 57 yds
C. Clay - 4 cat 62 yds 1 TD
R. Woods - 3 cat 85 yds 1 TD

Panthers beat up Cards 27-20
Would really love to write a recap but I was beyond drunk and twitch was acting up so I can't go back and watch it. Panthers D made some crazy interceptions i remember and Im pretty sure Carolina got the lead late in the 3rd and iced it. The "Burger" went down in an injury and will miss vs the Seahawks
Raiders improve to 2-1 and defeat 2nd straight division rival 41-31.
Falcons win home opener 17-13
The Falcons came off a very tough W in Denver and had the NY Football Giants waiting in the home opener in the ATL Las Vegas showed the ATL no respect as it had the Falcons a 3 point underdog in their home opener .This would be a defensive struggle as both defenses were flexing their muscles and ensued was some hart hitting football. Matt Ryan hit reserve TE Derrick Carrier from 3 yards out late in the 4th QTR to give the Falcons the win. The Falcons improve to 2-0 as the Giants fell to 1-1. Next up the Giants face the Packers while the ATL begins a 4 game road trip in Carolina to face the defending NFC South Champion Panthers. Opening Las Vegas has the Panthers an 11 point favorite.
I tried to copy and paste the stats but it wouldn't let me. gg ptsbx1

Falcons win in Mile High 16-9
The Falcons opened up the 2016 Football season with alot of questions concerning the roster and their system. Coach GMONEY took them over when John Smith was fired after 11 games. Well the Falcons came out and played Mistake free football on a cold night in Denver. Matt Ryan passed for 371 yards and 2 td's and Dewitt White, the number 8 pick in the draft had 5 catches for 139 yards and 2 both td receptions from Matt Ryan in his NFL debut as the Falcons held on for a hard fought 16-9 win over the Denver Broncos.
However the story of the game was the Falcons defense. The Broncos were inside the 10 yard line on 3 separate occasions and each time the defense held their ground and kept the high powered Denver offense out of the end zone. The final time with under 2 minutes left they held off Denver on downs and the 5000 fans who traveled from the ATL sitting in the cheap seats had a lot to be happy about. For Denver, newly acquired super star TE Jimmy Graham had an impressive debut by catching a team high 5 balls for 89 yards. Next up for the Broncos is a trip down 95 South to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers while the Falcons welcome the NY Football Giants in their home opener. gg bringbackjimmy
Patriots Escape from New York with Win
(Week 4 Edition)
The high powered offense and stingy defense took their show on the road for the first time in the 2016 season as the traveled down to the Meadowlands for a Week 4 matchup with the Jets. The Jets came in with a poor 1-2 record after finishing 9-7 last season and making the playoffs. The Patriots knew the Jets had a defense, but how good could Bryce Petty and that receiving corps really be?
The game started with New York forcing the Pats to punt on their first possession. This marks the first time they were not able to get a TD on their opening drive this season. The Patriots defense returned the favor, and NY repeated the performance again. On the ensuing drive, a blown coverage by Malcolm Butler allowed Petty to find a streaking Devin Smith for a 56 yd TD bomb. This also make the first time this season the Patriots have trailed in a game.
Q1 - NE 0 - NYJ 7
The 2nd quarter the Patriots answered with a methodical drive down the field capped by a 1 yd Spiller TD. However, the Jets would answer with their own drive ending with a Ray Rice 2 yd TD scamper.
Q2 - NE 7 - NYJ 14
Second half scoring saw G&G take to the house as Garoppolo found Gronkowski for a 42 yd TD. On the ensuing drive we saw Petty lead Amaro just a little too much as McCourty jumped the route and snatched the pick taking it to the house for a 41 yd return TD. This gave NE their first lead of the game. The 3rd quarter would be capped with a Jets FG.
Q3 - NE 21 - NYJ 17
The final, decisive quarter showcased some great football. Petty continued his majic, fooling the Pats defense as he found Kersey for a 73 yd TD catch. The Patriots answered quickly when Garoppolo hit Spiller on a quick hitch turned into a 43 yd TD pass. On the next drive the Jets continued picking a part NE's defense and even saw Jace Amaro break free for the possible game winning TD, until Malcolm Butler came all the way across the field to punch the ball out and have it recovered by Milliner at the Jets' 7 yd line. NE would marchange the ball down the field but we're held to a FG to give them the 7 point lead. The Jets came back out firing. Marching all the way down the field and scoring on a 1 yd TD keeper by Petty with 53 sec left to tie the game. In the past few weeks we've seen some late 2nd half magic by Garoppolo, but could he do it with 53 sec and 1 TO? With passes to Gronk/Wallace/Ford, Garoppolo worked the Pats into FG range. Gostkowski hit the game winner with just 4 sec left on the clock.
Final NE 34 - NYJ 31
J. Garoppolo - 31/42 402 yds 2 TD 3 INT
CJ Spiller - 15 car 59 yds 1 TD 7 cat 96 yds 1 TD
M. Wallace - 8 cat 103 yds

Niners lose more than the game
A sim loss to the Dolphins 37-7 saw San Francisco lose QB Brett Hundley and HB Carlos Hyde for extended periods, making an 0-4 start look even more bleak
