Survive and Advance
A McCoy TD delivered a win for the Chickens during a pivotal MNF matchup
Down by less than a touchdown, the Chickens needed a score on Monday Night Football to secure a key victory.
Sound familiar? It was Super Bowl XXI all over again, albeit with slightly lower stakes.
It was LeSean McCoy who delivered this time, scoring a touchdown from a yard out during the third quarter to give the Chickens an
important divisional victory over the Memphis Brothers, who had stormed back thanks to 4 touchdowns from Jay Cutler during the
Sunday night game.
The victory improves the Chickens to 2-0 and sets up a divisional showdown next week with the undefeated Dragons. Meanwhile, the Brothers
fall to 0-2 and will look to get back on track as the struggling Big Boys visit.
Elsewhere around the league, the Monday night game had important ramifications throughout the YFFL. The Buddies hung on to defeat the Thugs thanks
to a big game from Darren Sproles, avoiding a 0-2 start and spoiling Bobby's cereal bowl in the process, and Nick Foles and Cody Parkey helped the Eaters
down the Merry Men 42-36 to leave the AFC West knotted in a four way tie at 1-1.
Dragons vs. Chickens
The Chickens have not even found their groove, yet they're still 2-0. The Dragons are playing well, their veterans are still sort-of healthy, and Aaron Rodgers is always a threat to drop a big number at any point. Much talk has been made about the Cold War battle between the Chickens and Mallards, but the Dragons pose more of a threat to the Hammer and Sickle as their quarterback play is impressive. Some forget that in this league, the QBs are our war generals and Steve's failed to recognize this as he stockpiles infantry men (WRs). In the end, unlike Kevin and Steve have neglected to put together a Tangs Preseason Postcard, this week Drew Brees puts together a Brees-ian performance of 22+ points pacing the Chickens past the Dragons in a potential post season preview.
