Week 9 was the 4th lowest scoring week of all-time, with just 772 points scored. We saw 3 teams finish with less than 60 points.
Teams scoring 100 points or more this season are 28-11-2 which is a 68.3% win percentage, which would be the lowest in history if stays under the current record of 74.6%.
The average score this season has been 95.6 points which is on pace to be the 3rd highest scoring season in league history.
Jake passes Jacob for 3rd best winning percentage in the league after yielding that lead to him last week.
With a win over Schweg, Sean passes him for 6th all time in career winning percentage.
Erik has been in last place in career winning percentage for the ENTIRETY of our league history, until this past week when he finally passed Jarrett. Jarrett’s 44.0% win percentage puts him in last place.
Erik continues his dominance by winning his 7th consecutive game. He becomes the 6th team to post a 7-game winning streak or better. The last time was when Chase won in Weeks 13 & 14 of the 2017 season and started 6-0 in the 2018 season. The last time someone posted a 7-game winning streak within one season was Aaron in 2013 with his record setting 14-game winning streak. Erik improves to 5-0 in his division, and already has a division clinching scenario this week! If he can win against Sean to improve to 9-1, he will win the division. In that scenario, the worst Erik could do is 9-5, while the best that Sean and Ryan could do would be 8-5-1 and 9-5 respectively (Erik already swept Ryan). Only one other time has someone clinched a playoff spot by Week 10, and that was Sean in 2012. No one has won their division after Week 10. This was also the 4th consecutive game that Erik has scored over 100 points. Erik gets a regular season sweep over Ryan for the first time, and they’ve played each other twice every year. He has now won 3 straight against Ryan.
Ryan is currently on pace to score the 3rd fewest points in league history, averaging just 77.7 points per game. He has scored under 100 points in 7 straight weeks. Ryan becomes the 5th owner to lose 80 career games. Ryan has posted 0 points from 2 different starters in 3 of his last 10 games. He has also started the most players in the league, with 31 different starters. He has scored 80 or more points just 3 times this year.
We saw the lowest scoring game of the season so far with Sean defeating Schweg 67-53. That is tied for the 7th fewest combined points ever scored in a game.
After a 2-3 start, Aaron has now won 4 straight games and is tied with Jacob on top of his division at 6-3. Jacob won the first matchup between the two so he has the early advantage but both teams are moving in opposite directions. Aaron improves his record high monthly winning percentage, as he now has a 29-15 record in the month of November (65.9% win).
After going 0-5-1 over the last 6 weeks, Chase gets a much needed win and he does it in November, the month that he has struggled so much in lately. He also snapped a 5-game losing streak against Terrance that dated back to 2018.
Jake now has 4 straight wins over division rival Jacob.
Jacob has scored just 108 points in his last two games, the fewest amount scored in any 2-game stretch in his career.
Schweg becomes the 6th owner in history to post single digit scores from all 9 starters, and the first person to do it twice. The other games where no starter reached 10 points were:
Schweg - Week 3, 2014 - 39 points
Aaron - Week 15, 2014 - 44 points
Chase - Week 11, 2015 - 48 points
Jarrett - Week 6, 2017 - 38 points
Sean - Week 12, 2019 - 45 points
Schweg - Week 9, 2021 - 53 points
Ryan (56) vs Schweg (45)
Christian McCaffrey - 10
DeVonta Smith - 46
David Montgomery - 29
Calvin Ridley - 16
Ryan (31) vs Terrance (45)
Chuba Hubbard - 31
Melvin Gordon - 45
Erik becomes the 4th team to start the season with just 1 loss through the first 9 weeks. Sean started 8-1 in 2012 and won Robbie Bowl II. Chase started 8-1 in 2013 and lost Robbie Bowl III. Erik was the last team to do it with a 7-1-1 start in 2017 and he would go on to win Robbie Bowl VII. So not only did all those teams make the playoffs, but they all made it to the Robbie Bowl with a 2-1 record.
76% of 3 loss teams make the playoffs, which is where Aaron & Jacob are now.
39% of 4 loss teams make the playoffs, which is where Jake & Sean are now.
29% of 5 loss teams make the playoffs, which is where Ryan, Jarrett & Chase are now.
No 2-7 team has ever made the playoffs, which is where Terrance & Schweg are. Even if they won the rest of their games and finished at 7-7, only 1 out of 16 total teams with 7 losses at the end of the season has ever made the playoffs. It would truly be a miracle if one of them did it, however it is still in the realm of possibility.
Week 10 Preview:
Erik (8-1) vs Sean (4-4-1)
Erik leads the series 7-6 and has won 4 straight. Erik can clinch the division title with a win. A win for Sean would keep him right in the thick of the playoff race, and he would have a lot of points added to his strength of victory tiebreaker for beating Erik.
Ryan (4-5) vs Jarrett (4-5)
Ryan leads the series 11-5 and has won 4 straight. The difference between 5-5 and 4-6 is massive. 5-5 teams make the playoffs 41% of the time, while 4-6 teams make it just 9%.
Aaron (6-3) vs Jake (5-4)
Aaron leads the series 13-8 and has won 4 straight. Aaron already beat Jake this year, so a win could give him a sweep with a 2-game lead. Jake has a chance to even the series and their divisional records. In a 3-way tie with Jacob, Jake would win that tiebreaker as of now because he swept Jacob.
Jacob (6-3) vs Chase (3-5-1)
Jacob leads the series 7-6 and has won 4 of the last 5. Jacob needs the divisional win, or he is in danger of falling out of first place in the division. If Chase wins, he will improve to 4-5-1, and if Jake defeats Aaron, then Chase will be just a game and a half behind the leaders with the best divisional record in Vaidenville.
Schweg (2-7) vs Terrance (2-7)
The series is tied 8-8 with Schweg winning the last 2. The loser of this game will more than likely be eliminated from playoff contention.
