Week 9 of the NFL season included bye weeks for 4 teams: the Dallas Cowboys, the New York Giants, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers. That meant names like Dak Prescott, Saquon Barkley, Najee Harris and Christian McCaffrey were unavailable.
Heading into Week 9, the two division leaders faced off against each other, and the 2nd place teams from both divisions played each other as well. The weekend featured several RBs and QBs with over 20 points, leading to some high scoring games. Here's what happened this week.
M.I.L.F. (Man I Love Football) (@ElderBartleby) vs. Italian Defense League (@michcusejac5): This matchup between the division leaders was pretty even the whole way. The Italians took the lead behind Derrick Henry's 23.50 points on Sunday Night. Bartleby had to rely on his QB play this weekend. Justin Fields scored 42.72, and Lamar Jackson was up on Monday, with a chance to win. Lamar got 17.52 points to pull it out. @michcusejac5 falls to @Elder Bartleby in a great game 123.24 - 119.40 .
Can't go wrong repping Lamar!
