Record Setting Performance

Despite scoring a league-high 796 points, there were a few question marks surrounding the Memphis Brothers leading into the playoffs, having lost 3 of their final 4 regular season games and ceding the first round bye to the Dragons.

They erased any of those doubts early in the opening round of the playoffs and didn't let up on the gas.

The Brothers set a new YFFL single game record with 111 points enroute to a 61 point drubbing of the Chickens (who still managed to post 50 points). Leading the scoring outburst was a trio of Lions as QB Jared Goff, WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and TE Sam LaPorta paced the Brothers to an early lead with 60 points on Saturday night and their dynamic backfield tandem of RB Christian McCaffrey and RB Raheem Mostert finished it off with a combined 5 touchdowns. The Brothers will now face off against the Dragons with a trip to Super Bowl XXXI on the line.

Over in the AFC, the Orangutangs leapt out to an early lead and managed to hang on despite a late charge from QB Josh Allen and the Refugees. Dynamic rookie RB Jahmyr Gibbs paced the Tangs with a pair of scores on Saturday night and WR Amari Cooper delivered one of his best games of the season to overcome zero points from QB Dak Prescott, who has been red hot of late but struggled in the Buffalo rain. The Tangs will continue their Cinderella run next week against the Buddies and look to go from Stupor to Super Bowl in just one season.
