Playoffs: I'm down, but I'm not out!

Postby joejlitz » Sun Dec 14, 2008 8:04 pm

I'm down 38-13 in a very points-stingy league

1 point - 25 rushing/receiving, 50 yards passing
3 points - all TDs
1 point - fumbles, sacks, ints
1 point - FG

But I've got Romo and Witten tonight and PHL and Akers tomorrow. My opponent has T.O.

2 TDs to Witten and I'm back in this(from Romo, obviously)!

Anyone else fighting for their playoff lives?

You are done. There is no way you can come back from this unless Romo and witten have career days and TO gets shut down.

I'm done in both of my leagues. 1 I technically have a chance but there is no way Philly D makes up 25 points then outscores Mcnabb.

In my money leagues it looks like (knock on wood) I'm going to win both games. Unless Eli Manning throws for 50+ points I'm good.... Thank you Andre Johnson. ;-D

Romo typically puts up 15-16 points when he throws 3 TDs and 300 yards (5 times this year). Two TDs from Witten would be 8 right there (assuming 50 yards). A good DST effort is worth 7. I'm still in it. But I need Witten.

I actually didn't see Philly and Akers. You have a chance. It looks like it is not going to be a barn burner so far in Dallas so Romo Witten might be tough to extract alot of points from.

Almost had it! If Witten scores now, I definitely have a shot!

Well, I'm down and out. I lost by 5 which is the equivalent of 50 yards rush/rec and a TD. Witten's measley 30 yards on the night hurt, but so did Portis not getting in the end zone and Breaston not doing much.
