Let's get it on!
The winner of each game (or user if playing the CPU) must post a short game summary following their game. The summary must include the following:
Key Team Stats
Key Individual Stats
This can be as basic or as simply as you would like to make it. However, the more engaging the posts are, the more invested other users will be in this thread and the league in general. Its up to you how much effort you want to put into it.
Here are some links to help out your summaries:

Patriots survive overtime thriller vs Chiefs.
Chiefs were hot early building a 14-0 lead over the Patriots as things were starting to look grim. Brady responded with a nice drive to finally get the Patriots on the board midway in the 2nd quarter. Chiefs would try to add to the lead but QB Kyle Murray was picked by Brandon Fletcher who took it to the Kansas City 2 yard line to setup the tying touchdown on a Steven Ridley run. Chiefs would get in FG yardage as time expired to recapture the lead going into the half (17-14). Patriots started the 2nd half like they ended the first as Brady converted key 3rd down situations to keep the ball moving. Eventually he would connect on his 3 TD of the game to give the Patriots a 21-17 lead. Patriots defense would step up the pressure as they held the Chiefs to get the ball back. The Patriots offense looking to extend the lead but would only manage a FG to go 24-17. Chiefs struck back quickly as Murray connected on a deep bomb to Rich Egnatuk to tie the game at 24. From there it was like two prize fighter exchanging blows with back to back scores by both teams, leaving just 35 secs on the clock and a 38-38 tie. On a critical 3rd and 10 Brady was trying to get the team into FG position but everybody was covered Brady then turn into M.Vick as he tried to pickup the first down but a Chiefs defender stopped him just shy of the first forcing the overtime.
Patriots won the toss and Brady was magical to close. Leading his team downfield yet again while converting on key 3rd downs. The final blow was a Brady TD pass his fourth on the day to Gronkowski who broke away from the linebacker and leap into the endzone for the win. The game lived up to the top billing it received and these two teams are destined to meet again in the playoffs.
Minnesota-31 @ Houston-37
The Texans pulled a major upset of one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the NFL with a 37 to 31 win over the Vikings. The telling stat of the game was three turnovers for the Vikings and none for the Texans. Turnovers have been the major "fly in the ointment" for the Texans all season. Coach Winn was most excited for his quarterback, "It was good to see Matt (Schaub) have a game that is really representative of the type of player he is. He has been struggling this year with his accuracy and hopefully this game helps him turn it around."
