Collision Course

The YFFL's two best teams will clash in Week 7

DeMarco Murray and LeSean McCoy

While there's still plenty of uncertainty all around the league after 6 weeks of YFFL action, there is little question as to who the two best teams are in the AFC and NFC.

The Llamas remained undefeated as they scraped by the Thugs in a 49-45 nail biter thanks to 2 TDs (including one rushing!) from Coby Fleener and the continued steady performance from DeMarco Murray, who has already surpassed his forgettable 2015 campaign. The Thugs had a chance to steal a victory on Monday night, but Bilal Powell and Michael Floyd could only muster 6 points in the loss. The win keeps the Llamas 2 wins up on Bear Poop in the AFC East.

Meanwhile, the Chickens got off to a hot start on Sunday and never looked back, dismantling the Dragons 67-26 in what some were calling a potential NFC Championship preview. The Chickens amassed 7 touchdowns from Drew Brees (4) and LeSean McCoy (3) during the 1pm games, which was more than enough to put the game away. The win moved them to 5-1 on the season and kept them a game up on the Beans in the NFC West.

That leaves us with a titanic Week 7 matchup between the AFC leading Llamas and the NFC leading Chickens in what could arguably be one of the biggest regular season games in YFFL history. The Chickens stand-out rookie Ezekiel Elliott will unfortunately be out with a bye, but the ground game should still be a heavy focus for both teams as DeMarco Murray (squaring off with his former team), Le'Veon Bell and Matt Jones will vie with LeSean McCoy, Isaiah Crowell and Spencer Ware for backfield supremacy. Will the dream of an undefeated season live on for the Llamas or will the return to greatness continue for the Chickens? We'll find out this week.

Elsewhere around the league, if anyone can make a claim for the MVP after only playing 2 of the first 6 games, Tom Brady is doing just that as he guided Bear Poop to a second consecutive victory and has accounted for more than half their scoring in those games, the Beans won their third straight game thanks to 3 TDs from Marcus Mariota, and instead of Romo to Bryant, it was Prescott to Beasley as the Tangs used their new Cowboy connection to roll up 66 points on the Eaters.

GAME OF THE WEEK presented by Nick's Kurt's Picks

  Llamas (-5) vs. Chickens

The difference in this game very well may be the bye week for Ezekiel Elliot. That said I wouldn’t count Nick out as the matchups for McCoy and Bortles are very favorable. Big games from both could help him eke out a win. That said I’m taking the Llamas in this one. Top to Bottom they have a stronger squad and if everyone plays to their potential Gibbs should remain undefeated and cover the 5 points. I think Derek Carr has a big week with at least 1 of 3 TDs going to Amari Cooper. I also like Matt Jones to find the end zone this week and Demarco may find it twice. Imagine if Gibbs could add another WR to this roster?. The Brothers have a stock pile of aging receivers and need to consider rebuilding at this point.
