Emmanuel Sanders got the Eaters off and running with 3 TDs on Thursday

Emmanuel Sanders

In what has felt like an entire season of "can you top this?" in the AFC West, the Eaters accepted the challenge of besting the Thugs' 82 points last week by putting up 89 of their own in Week 8.

Led by 3 TDs from Emmanuel Sanders on Thursday night, the Eaters tallied a team total of 10 TDs to surge past the Cuban Refugees in a key AFC showdown. The Refugees got 3 TDs of their own from Rob Gronkowski, but the team effort of the Eaters was too much to overcome, as Antonio Brown continued his breakout campaign with 16 more points to vault him to the top of the WR rankings and Nick Foles performed admirably in his return to the starting lineup.

Not to be outdone, the AFC West leading Thugs put up 76 points in a drubbing of the Llamas and now have scored a mind-boggling 158 in the past two games. We're now just two weeks away from what could be the biggest game of the YFFL regular season, as the Eaters and Thugs meet in Week 11. The Eaters will try to avenge a 52-40 loss from Week 1 in a game that's sure to have plenty of fireworks.

Elsewhere around the league, the NFC East leading Dragons rolled to their 5th straight win thanks to another standout performance from Matt Forte, the NFC West leading Chickens enjoyed a comeback victory thanks to Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham, and the Merry Men, Big Boys and Memphis Brothers all stayed in the Wild Card hunt in their respective conferences with important victories.


Demaryius Thomas



After a big win over the Orangutangs in Week 8, Demaryius Thomas and the Merry Men are back to .500 and looking to sneak into the playoffs. Do they have what it takes to succeed in the volatile AFC West? They vault up 5 spots in this week's Power Rankings, but Bobby thinks they're headed for disappointment.

Ryan Tannehill


Back At It

In a tradition unlike any other, the Orangutangs dealt next year's 1st Round draft pick to the Llamas on Thursday. In return, the 'Tangs acquired QB Ryan Tannehill, who will serve as insurance for Tony Romo and Tony Romo's Back™. The trade marked the second year in a row that the Llamas acquired the Orangutangs' top pick, following up on the Antonio Gates deal last season that netted the Llamas QB Teddy Bridgewater in the 2014 YFFL Draft.

GAME OF THE WEEK presented by Nick's Picks

  Buddies vs. Dragons

Mike, after looking at the schedule and seeing that his sputtering Buddies have the 7-1 Dragons coming to town, began to moan as if he had a terrible tooth ache. See, he knows that his 4-4 Buddies can ill afford to lose this week as they try and stay alive in the playoff hunt. Little did we know, well, until Joleen posted a story about him on Facebook, that he really did have tooth troubles. Talk about a bad week for the West coast Kinsman. Good things are on their way though as the Dragons are without Aaron Rodgers and there's no way Big Ben even comes remotely close to his week 8 showing. Another remedy to help him overcome his pain, keep Doug Martin out of the lineup. Martin is like the Trip McNeely of the YFFL: "Remember that one year I was soooo amazing!?!? That was cool. That was cool. Those were the days. Want to talk about it some more?"
