Initiallly he won by like 3 points, but the next day cbs.sportsline changed the scoring on that play. Stating that since there was an inteception that the offense was now the defense so I got the 2 points for the fumble recovery and 6 points for the TD.
I can't remember the game or the team. I had way too many teams last year. 12 is too many to keep track of.
The game you are referring to was Monday Night of Week 5, Indianapolis at Tampa Bay. In the first quarter, Mike Doss of the Colts intercepted a pass thrown by Brad Johnson, returned it 16 yards to the Tampa 43, and then fumbled it. Keenan McCardell recovered the fumble and returned it 57 yards for a touchdown.
Yeah, the CNNSI league that I was in scored it the same way, 2 points for the fumble recovery and 6 points for the touchdown for the Broncos defense. I was pretty shocked at how this was scored. I friend of mine in a different league actually lost his head to head matchup because his opponent had Denver's defense and won by a couple of points. Boy was he pissed off. The points should have really gone to McCardell, who buy the way had 2 receiving td's in the game.
Anyways, this was a memorable Monday Night game. The Colts were down 35-14 with 4:00 left in regulation, somehow tied it up to send it to OT and Vanderjagt kicked the game winning field goal with 3:47 left in overtime. Vanderjagt missed the game winning field goal on the previous play, but Simeon Rice was flagged for "leaping" so Vanderjagt got a second chance and he nailed it. Hell of a game.
