Deck the Halls
Eric Decker's 4-TD game saved the Orangutangs' season
Winners of 6 of their last 7, the Cuban Refugees seemed like a team of destiny. When Maurice Jones-Drew starting throwing
touchdown passes, it all but confirmed it.
However, the Asian Orangutangs would not be denied. A 30-point outburst from Eric Decker pulled the Tangs back from the brink of
elimination to deliver an AFC East title and prevent a late season collapse. Decker's magnificent game tied a single game record for
a receiver and reaffirmed his place in the starting lineup after nearly being traded away during the offseason.
That AFC East showdown was one of several wild rollercoaster affairs on the final week of the regular season.
Over in the NFC West, the UCornn Huskers outlasted the Memphis Brothers in a duel for the NFC Wild Card, leaving the 9-4 Brothers out in
the cold, the White Guys surged past the faltering Dragons to capture the NFC East crown as the Mallards played the spoiler, the Merry Men hung
onto a slim 6-point victory over the Thugs to capture the AFC Wild Card, and the Chickens waited until Monday night, but finally secured the bye
in the NFC.
That leaves the Merry Men taking on the Orangutangs and the Huskers visiting the White Guys as the YFFL Playoffs kick off next week. The winners
of those games will face off with the Buddies and Chickens respectively for the right to battle it out in Super Bowl XXI. If the playoffs are anything
like the regular season, we're in for a treat.
