Thursday Night Observations
This is why it’s better to watch the five minute highlights. I got the 40-minute version this morning, everything was going great — I had Bills -8.5, I had subbed out Baker Mayfield in a league for Mac Jones (Don’t ask it’s drawing dead, but I still want to make the right decision), I have Chris Godwin everywhere and Mike Evans nowhere.
The Bills are up 14, they sack Baker Mayfield to ice the cover (this after they already should have gotten off the field but for a defensive hold), but there’s a facemask. First down. It gets to 4th-and-10, touchdown to Mike Evans. I lose the cover, Evans salvages the day for someone in my league, and it’s no longer a perfect game. (Plus there was some extra garbage time for the Bills on the ensuing drive.)
Granted, it’s my low-stakes home pool, but I was in second heading into that game, and now I’m in third. Just an annoying loss, but I guess after what happened in the Browns game for me in Survivor, I shouldn’t bitch too much.
