Oh Brother(s)!

Robert Woods and the Brothers have somehow crawled back into the playoff race

Robert Woods

After losing Carson Palmer, Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall to season-ending injuries and posting a COMBINED 21 points in Weeks 7 and 8, it looked like this was going to be another lost season due to injuries for the Memphis Brothers.

However, a seemingly innocuous trade for Robert Woods on October 26th has miraculously turned it all around.

Woods scored twice in Week 11 (his second straight 2-TD game after posting just 3 YFFL TDs in the past 4 years) and his real-life QB Jared Goff logged a total of 3 TDs (making 7 for him in the past two weeks) as the Brothers blew out the Buddies and moved within a game of the top of the NFC West. The 124 points scored by the Brothers in the last two weeks have now accounted for 34% of their season total.

As we head into the final three weeks of divisional play, can the Brothers pull off the unthinkable and make a run at a division title? They square off with the Chickens next week in a pivotal matchup for both teams.

Elsewhere around the league, the YFFL's only remaining unbeaten is no more. After clinching the division last week, the Refugees took a breather and dropped their first game of the season. They'll now attempt to hold off the Merry Men, who ended a three game winless skid, for the AFC bye. Over in the NFC, a similar story is unfolding as Steve Dugas' other team is attempting to run down Anthony Aceto's other team. The Mallards won their sixth straight game to close within a game of the White Guys in the NFC East.

With so much still up in the air, it should be a thrilling conclusion to yet another YFFL season.
