GRIDCARD Week 37 Recap
Game 74: Pride of Lions
The last time the Detroit Lions scored at least 35 points in three straight games, the Lions were the best team in all of football. The Lions jumped out to a 22-0 lead on Washington Sunday, then hung on to beat the Commanders 36-27. In Week One, Detroit showed some offensive punch but lost to the Eagles 38-35, and in the last game of 2021, they upset the Packers 37-30. Not since the championship teams of 1952 and 1952 has Detroit offense been so offensive–in a good way.
On the GridCard, JD (40) put up a TallBoy and took down the Hamlin-Hopper, just edging out Barry (39) and amcmayonnaise (39), JD earning her first win in just her first week! The GridCard played tough for everyone else. Only four other players posted Qualifying Scores: Kevin K (35), KDet047 (33), Jkloo (32), and PGT winner dangerzone (33). The King Kong went to jocko (74).
Team Fantasy GridCard Football featured three splits and a sweep. Behind dangerzone (33), and Ricco1947 (29), the PGT slipped past TMac 62-48 to remain undefeated. Team Collins beat LFL 57-47, JeepCreeper (30) and btalkington20 (27) leading the way. Team Detwiler edged the OG 72-65, amcmayonnaise (39) and KDet047 (33) taking Top2 honors. And VBar nipped Fictionasy 71-70 in a high-scoring contest paced by Barry (39) and Jkloo (32).
