National Gridlock

Matt Ryan and the Mallards are one of many 1-1 teams after two weeks

Matt Ryan

If you're looking for parity, the NFC is the place to be.

Week 1's losers returned the favor in Week 2 as every team is now knotted up at 1-1 in the NFC East and West after two weeks of play.

Leading the charge were the Dragons and Mallards, who both broke the 60 point barrier after a couple of tough luck losses in the opening week. With Steve's excitement level over Carson Wentz growing by the hour, Matt Ryan appears to have a fire lit under him, as he tied a career high with 24 points in Week 2 and sits tied atop the league in scoring. Could this be the year that Ryan finally delivers a MVP caliber season for the Mallards?

Meanwhile, the defending champion Dragons avoided a 0-2 start thanks to a combined 8 touchdowns, including three from Matt Forte on Thursday night. The combination of Forte and Frank Gore continues to roll on despite entering their ninth year together: Gore added 8 points to the team effort and the duo now sit at #6 and #9 on the all-time scoring list at RB.

Elsewhere around the league, the Llamas, Poop and Merry Men now stand as the only undefeated teams remaining, the Buddies surprised the Thugs with an ugly 29-22 win that saw the Thugs combine for a total of just 116 yards rushing/receiving between 6 players, and the Orangutangs and Eaters (both preseason favorites for the postseason) find themselves sitting in a 0-2 hole.


DeAngelo Williams


Llama Llama No More Drama?

After a rough start to the 2015 season derailed them a year ago, the Llamas are one of just three remaining undefeated teams at 2-0 thanks in large part to DeAngelo Williams, who has revived his career in Pittsburgh as "guy who plays when Le'Veon Bell is injured (but mostly when he's suspended)". They sit atop the Power Rankings as Steve counts them down from 1-16.

Kiefer Sutherland


I'm Missing Designated Survivor For This

Steve and Bobby break down the YFFL season so far, including whether the Tangs and Refugees can bounce back from 0-2 starts and what the future holds for Ezekiel Elliot, Adrian Peterson, Sammy Watkins, and Jay Cutler on the latest YFFL Podcast. Plus, Steve swears that drafting from the Labor & Delivery room was Becky's idea and they also discuss Kiefer Sutherland's return to network TV in "Designated Survivor".

GAME OF THE WEEK presented by Nick's Picks

  Dragons (-3) vs. Brothers

A potential NFC Title preview with a lot on the line, despite how early in the season it is. For one, the loser of this game falls to 1-2 and will be pressured to make a move to acquire an upgrade at likely a high cost. For now though, the Brothers should be pretty pleased, win or lose, with the fact that their team is 'healthy.' The ageless Dragons RB tandem will be hard to pick against until someone explains to them that they're too old to be doing this.
