Yahoo has Jacoby Jones with 60 return yards. Anyone know which one is correct?

posted by rcade at 05:12 PM on January 12

It's 117- you need to read the whole line, as that line lists both his kickoff return yards (60) and then his punt return yards (57) in a separate column, for a total of 117. The pick 'em did say both kick/punt return yards, so you should double check your math for last week.

posted by hincandenza at 05:47 PM on January 12

Thanks. That's the only stat I had to do myself. I'll correct it in next week's standings.

That was a ridiculous game of football.

posted by Mr Bismarck at 09:00 PM on January 12

As the fourth quarter was running out, Fox should've given Manning a chance to throw for the first down on third down and deny Baltimore the ball again. When he called a conservative running play, I thought I heard the football gods rising from their slumber to smite the Broncos.

posted by rcade at 09:03 PM on January 12

Agreed, and all the more bizarre given that Baltimore re-tied the game after each time that Denver took the lead. Why should the Broncos believe that 7 points was enough, particularly given how porous the secondary was? I also would have liked to see (as a football fan, not a rooting interest) Denver try to turn the final 30 seconds and 2 timeouts into 3 points. When they sat on the ball, it sure felt like the writing was on the wall.

This also seems like a good time to update my tracking this season of overtime games. This season had 22 overtime games. In the week following playing to overtime, NFL teams went a combined 14-29 (plus one bye). For those of you keeping score at home, the Ravens were 1-1 this season in overtime games (now 2-1), but they lost the next week both times.

But they get the extra day to rest, so they'll be fine.

5. Colin Kaepernick

Because of how the question was worded, I don't think he can win despite his 181 yard rushing performance.

posted by rcade at 12:08 PM on January 13

I still declare a moral victory.

posted by BitterOldPunk at 12:16 PM on January 13

We may have to declare you moral champion on the basis of that pick.

Welp, congratulations to tonight's game winner, the Houston Texans. You know, since I've gotten the previous three games wrong.

posted by NoMich at 04:17 PM on January 13

I'd say that BOP's pick of Kaepernick was so "out there" he ought to get the point on principle alone. Like, you run the math on RBs for the rest of us, but BOP gets a point regardless.

posted by hincandenza at 05:41 PM on January 13

The motion has been made. Is there a second?

posted by rcade at 06:58 PM on January 13

I'll second it.

posted by tommytrump at 07:31 PM on January 13

Me too - the guy deserves some credit for that pick.

Though I hope Foster goes for 182 tonight

Ah, the old "Shoot the giant squid before he types the password" play! You just don't see that kind of call in the modern game... I guess that's what makes Manning one of the all-time greats.
