Backup Plan

Kirk Cousins kept the Beans undefeated with Marcus Mariota on Bye

Kirk Cousins

A playoff season in the YFFL often takes equal parts talent and luck, but almost always requires a little help from some unlikely sources along the way. For two of the YFFL's top teams, Week 4 was a test of their quarterback depth.

With Tom Brady and Marcus Mariota on the first bye weeks of the season, Bear Poop and the Mexican Humping Beans called on Cam Newton and Kirk Cousins into service for pivotal match-ups.

Newton subbed admirably for Brady, posting 14 points enroute to a 44-30 victory for Poop and rebound from a tough Week 3 loss to remain atop the AFC Wild Card standings, while Cousins did just enough to help the Beans hold off the Mallards by a slim 2 points as the combination of Ameer Abdullah and Calvin Johnson could only muster 2 points on Monday Night Football.

The victory keeps the Beans undefeated at 4-0 and already surpasses their win total in each of the last two seasons. With Mariota on bye, Julio Jones posting a zero and Alshon Jeffery remaining sidelined, the fact that the Beans were able to pull out this win only gives further credence to what is shaping up to be a charmed season for owner Bobby Sansone.

Elsewhere around the league, the Refugees also remained undefeated by picking apart a severely underequipped Thugs team, the Dragons bested the Brothers in a matchup of NFC powerhouses, the Orangutangs and Llamas avoided 0-4 starts, and oh how the mighty have fallen - the Chickens are incredibly not only the last winless team, but also the lowest scoring one.
