Week #5 Update
In Week #5 Philadelphia was knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten by Detroit thanks to a late turnover and some very shoddy officiating. Also, the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers, playing without injured star QB Cam Newton, fell to 1-4 on the season after losing at home to division rival Tampa Bay on a field goal as time expired.
Fortunately for our pool players, neither of these results had any impact, as all of our players stayed clean for the week.
6 players advanced when Tom Brady successfully returned from his 4-game suspension to lead the Pats over the over-matched Cleveland Browns; 4 players relied on the Steelers to win at home yet again, which they did, easily dispatching the New York Jets; while Hillary and Donald exchanged barbs Sunday night the Packers helped 2 players advance by handing the New York Giants their 3rd consecutive loss; and finally 1 player advanced thanks to the Colts home victory over the Chicago Bears.
Week #5 by the numbers:
13 players entered Week #5
