The wheat and the chaff are being separated faster than you can say “fire Marc Trestman.”
STUFF THAT MATTERS: Ben crushed Moe with a glorious showing from three of his standout WRs (Julio Jones with 31, T.Y. Hilton with 25, and Cal Johnson with 21), and will face the wily Pat in Round 2 this week. Nathan Y got a strong performance from Russell Wilson to move past Tim, whose cold-weather swoon makes one wonder if the 2014 Cowboys somehow swapped souls with Tim’s team. Nathan has his work cut out for him this year, as for the second straight year, Andrew set a league all-time high scoring record in the playoffs. Last year, he managed a 194 in the second round en route to a championship. This week, he put up 196 without the benefit of the +5 home field advantage, although it came in a bye week. He scored an insane 144 points from five players alone: Cutler had 25, Roethlisberger had 28, Lacy had 22, A.J. Green had 28, and Le’Veon Bell with 41. Had Andrew benched Torrey Smith for Michael Floyd, he would have topped 200 for the first time ever. Seven of Andrew’s players now rank in the top 10 at their positions for the season, with another three ranking in the top 15. The boy is doing something right.
