Antonio Brown and the Eaters outlasted the Merry Men in a AFC West showdown

Antonio Brown

Despite reigning as the defending Super Bowl champions, the Apple Eaters have flown under the radar most of the season thanks to a 1-4 start that put them in an early season hole.

However, after a thrilling 70-63 victory over the AFC West leading Merry Men, the Eaters have now won 5 of their last 6 games and are quickly becoming the team to beat in the AFC. This week's victory was spearheaded by Antonio Brown, who tied a single-game career high with 22 points and counteracted Ben Roethlisberger's 4 TDs for the Merry Men.

Philip Rivers, Jordan Howard and Alshon Jeffery also chipped in double digit scores to help the Eaters post their best score of the season (even without any scoring from their kicker) and pull within a half game of the AFC West lead with 2 games to play. Can the Eaters catch the Merry Men and lock up a second straight division crown? They square off with the Thugs in Week 12.

Elsewhere around the league, the Mallards 6 game winning streak came to an end as the NFC East race tightened up, the Chickens absolutely dismantled the Brothers, scoring 90 points for the 9th time in team history (a feat that has only happened 6 other times in league history), and the skid continued for Anthony Aceto's squads as the White Guys and Refugees both lost their second game in a row - they now have just 2 wins combined in the last 4 weeks after both starting the season a perfect 7-0.
