Oh, and it being too late to take a lot of the matchups as a survivor pick, 'cause I just thought of it, my week 1 survivor is Cleveland. FUMBBL being more random than NBFL and having ties, I'm assuming survivor is "longest unbeaten streak" among survivor picks.

Well, this means I can't pick you again all season, except to not win. Razz Also, I can't pick against Cincinnati again, which is fine since they're at the very bottom of their curve.

Flight Vs. Fight!
Buffalo Hillbillies outrun and outfight the New York Jetz 2-1

Buffalo wins the coin flip and elects to kick. Kick off roll is high kick which lets star draftee Billie the Bow get under the ball. NY sets up a standard wave defense, one square deeper than normal. Buffalo focuses strong center, and only deploys two of its four catchers for this drive. Buffalo KO's one line fodder, but trips on the first catcher's run up the center, causing an early T1 turn over. NY collapses on the line, pinning the wardancers with tentacle players. Buffalo manages to create a little separation on the line, while moving Billie the Bow to back-center pitch and picking up the downed receiver. NY keeps the receiver double covered but struggles to deal damage. Buffalo sends out a wardancer to act as a second receiver. NY manages to reach Billie the Bow and knocks the ball loose in dangerously isolated territory. Buffalo sends 3 players back to cover the loose ball. NY is getting very spread out at this point. Buffalo removes the coverage of the ball and moves it way down pitch, but very exposed. NY comes in with huge coverage and fractures the ball carrier's skull. Buffalo wastes their reroll then manages a very balsy -2d blitz to score, leaving NY a 3-turn drive. 1-0 Buffalo.

Buffalo fields a VERY deep defense. NY pushes strong north. Buffalo counters by shifting its defense in front, and NY moves north-center. Justin Truck gets a very important chaos warrior casualty on the last turn, but NY still opens up the defense for the score. 1-1.

Buffalo's defense is once again deep, but not as much so as last drive. NY sets up 7 on the line and fails to blitz with the mino but trades a KO for an ejection as they secure the ball. Buffalo manages another good chaos warrior injury with a surf. NY wastes another blitz on the mino and moves the ball to deep north while trying to pin down Buffalo players. Buffalo manages to remove 2 more players from NY and moves 2 men up the pitch. NY manages to move the ball way up pitch, but loses it to a leaping wardancer as Buffalo continues to badly hurt beastmen like they're on clearance. There's some back and forth on ball control and Justin Truck gets KO'd, the man advantage is too great and Buffalo breaks south for the score. 2-1 Buffalo

Clutch moment of the game: Buffalo's one-dice block to break the ball loose near their own end-zone.

MVP of the game: Justin Truck, for badly hurting a chaos warrior and saving the ball more than once.

Forward March!
Atlanta blows out Pittsburgh (4-0)

Pittsburgh wins the toss and elects to receive. Atlanta sets up with a strong guard line and a tasty skinks on the wings. Pittsburgh bits on the line, setting up hard guard and a center push, actually declining to field his +av chaos dwarf. Pittsburgh, however, does not go for the exposed skinks, but sets up a grand foul that just stuns, as well as gets the ball into the hands of Big Ben. Atlanta surrounds the dogpile without contacting much of it and marks Big Ben with a skink. On Pittsburgh's next turn they manage to badly hurt a 3-skill skink and foul-ko a suarus without ejection. Atlanta continues moving down the pitch towards Big Ben, who seems unconcerned. Another skink falls to Steve Gronski's hunger, this time never to rise again. A weak foul from pittsburgh and a weak blitz from Ben, but the ball is finally at midfield. Atlanta starts fighting back with a KO on the fouler. Critical trip on Pittsburghs turn as Big Ben tries to go for it one to many times and ends up stunning himself and dropping the ball deep into Atlanta territory. Atlanta KO's a second hobgoblin but putzes a RR and fails to pick up the loose ball. Pittsburgh immediately KO's a skink, then a saurus, then stuns the krox, and finally capitalizes on this momentum by rerolling a 1d skull then tripping. Atlanta tries a hand of to a saurus after getting the ball but fails and Pittsburgh uses its wizard to clear it up a little. They get the ball back but fumble a pass to Big Ben. The offending Hobgoblin is then removed by a blitz for two games. The ball is picked up by a saurus and handed off to a skink for the turn 8 score. 1-0 ATL

Pittsburgh loads the line with 8 men. Atlanta decides not to fight this and spreads out. Two more hobgoblins are hurt on their first turn and a very strong and deep north cage is formed. There's nothing for Pittsburgh to do with the way they set up their line. 2-0 ATL

BLITZ! Pittsburgh has a 9-man line and it very weak to this blitz. An ag4 skink catches the ball but it's near the LoS. It's easily taken out of his hands but it falls into the hands of a backup skink. Again, Atlanta easily outranges the heavy line and scores. 3-0 ATL

Just as the game is already over, the rain sets in. A skink makes a play for the ball, but gets hurt for his trouble. Pittsburgh cannot hold on to the ball in this weather though. Atlanta gets the ball again, in the rain in a tackle zone and scores. 4-0 ATL

They line up for the last turn and the kroxigor is seriously injured for shit and giggles.

Clutch moment of the game: Big Ben tripping.

MVP of the game: M. "M'Kay" Okaf'r, MVP is almost always going to go to anyone that scores more than once in a game.

A Carnival of Carnage!
New Angryland and Seattle tie (1-1) but we all know who lost.

NE wins the coin toss and elects to receive, as well as brings a bribe and a wizard to the match. Seattle's defense is deep and centered, designed to keep pesky dwarves from wrapping around them. NA uses a 9-man front, leaving only a hobgoblin and the new star draftee bull centaur in the back. The kickoff is more bribe, so there are potentially 3 get out of jail free cards in play. Seattle's line is dealt with in normal chaos dwarf fashion: 1 ko and 1 badly hurt. The deep rats are challenged and though it costs NE a reroll, the st4 storm vermin is also KO'd. It's 11-8 man advantage on the first turn. NE tries to get the ball into Steve Grogan's hands, but fails. Seattle responds with a strong south push. Chaos dwarves shift down and close off the center, where the ball is caged. The rat ogre forces himself into the cage, next to the ball carrier, but a nice looking surf fails to pay off for Seattle instead. They try to tie up NE's forward players, but it's not very effective. The ball is brought back to get a 2d blitz on Seattle's 4st linerat, and it pays off with a KO, further expanding the man advantage. Bobby Wagner is the first of Seattle's deaths in this game, and the apo is wasted. The damage is tremendous by the end of the drive, with 6 KOs, 2 BH, and a RIP. At the 1-turn drive, only one rat recovers from KO. The roll is RIOT! but Seattle goes for the one turn anyways and trips on the goal line. 1-0 NE

3 players come back for Seattle this drive, but not the one-turner who had been KO'd by a foul while down in the endzone. NE's defense is loose center with a deep bull safety. Seattle is running south. The blitz is wasted by the Rat Ogre, but the offensive cannot (or perhaps does not want to) be stopped and it's a turn 2 score for Seattle. 1-1.

The st4 storm vermin and the 1-turn touchdown runner are still out. It's 10 on 11 for NE's last offensive drive. Seattle sets up super deep on defense. With nothing to fear, NE's plays 10 forward. This drive starts out much less impressive for NE, with 1 prone in 6 blocks. Seattle responses better, KO'ing a goblin and forcing the apo use on a chaos dwarf. Suddenly Seattle has the man advantage for the first time in the game. Not for long though for as Steve Grogan is driving the ball down the center, Max Unger II is killed on a piling on blitz. A couple of gentle turns pass and Steve is making steady progress center to south. He's got it, he's going for it, and GOAL LINE TRIP! Second major bull centaur trip this week. Seattle takes the ball and it proper rat fashion are a million miles down-field in a flash. NE is forced to tap into it's wizard and strikes the ball out with a lighting bolt, KO'ing the carrier. A farce of end game failures begins, and doesn't end until nobody scores and the rat ogre is dead.

Clutch moment of the game: Steve Grogan tripping in the end zone.

MVP of the game: Cory Killin, for his catch at the end of the first half.

Correctly predicted: Licker, Wingedhuman
Incorrectly predicted: EVERYONE ELSE

Dog Day Afternoons!
Cleveland wins (2-1) over Cincinnati

Cleveland wins the toss and elects to kick. They set up a strong center defense with no wide out presence. Cinny has a pretty protective offense, with only 5 on the line. The blitz comes and the kick is good for it, Cleveland recovers the ball easily. Orson Charles manages to knock the ball free, but into solid coverage. A zombie is killed and regenerates, and the ball is bounced around a bunch before landing in the hands of a neatly protected rotter. Eric Metcalf is badly hurt on a foul and the start looks really good for Cinny. Cleveland gets nothing done on their turn and Cinny removes BOTH wolves from the pitch, one KO'd and one SI but regenerates. You could be excused for thinking this half was over already. In fact, it was, nothing else happen except a stay zombie KO and a dp ejection. Turn 8 score for Cinny. 1-0

(Due to a quick snap, Cleveland gets a good shot at a one turn touchdown, but it fizzles.)

Second half, Cinny is employing a short center-E defense with no wide zone presence. Cleveland is running a flexible, winged offence. A good number of blocks into the opening turn and one of the warriors has been badly hurt, with no regen. Both teams are playing this drive almost exclusively nose-to-nose in the center, save the werewolf ball carrier trying to sneak south. This strategy is not paying off for Cinny though, who is shedding a player each turn and generating no pressure on the ball. They spend way too much time on flesh golems and by the time they chase the wolf it is too late, Cleveland scores on turn 4.

Cinny is fielding 10 for this drive, where they have 5 turns to win and Cleveland only 4. Cleveland switches gears and flies with the jumbo jet defense. Cinny counters with a very defensive offense featuring 3 backfield warriors. Opening drive is very weak on the line and the ball is picked up but then dropped on the handoff. For a couple turns ineffectual blocks are being traded until Dre Kirkpatrick KO's himself on a skull 1d block and opens up the middle. Suddenly the ball carrier is scrambling. This kind of spread out panicked pitch is where werewolves thrive. And so they do, one covering the only receiver and the other stripping the ball, taking the ball, and scoring...the ball. 2-1 Cleveland.

Clutch moment of the game: If Cinny had won, I would have said the turn 1 removal of Eric Metcalf. But considering they didn't, I think the clutch moment was Dre KO'ing himself and giving the ball carrier nowhere to run.

MVP of the game: Malcom "the Claws" Lane, easy.

Correctly predicted: Everyone EXCEPT Sutherlands

Nothing could be more true than that. The game went from NA looking good to win (or at least survive a 2-2 tie) to looking perfect for Seattle to steal a 2-1 win, to Seattle fans getting majorly bummed that their block RO died for no reason other than that, well, you know, BULLTROTTED!!!!

Panther Party Penetration!
Baltimore forgets to bring protection and loses (2-3) to Carolina's penetrations.

Carolina wins the toss and elects to receive, as well as purchases an additional apothecary for the match. Baltimore sets up a heavy black orc line and a deep blitzer defense, Carolina chooses not to fight the line and sets up 6 strong receiver threats in the wides. The roll is perfect defense though, which forces Carolina to meet the heavy line anyways, as well as most of the back as Baltimore switches to a heavy 9-man line. Carolina has to immideatly burn a reroll on a dodge, but then gets a lucky break with a 1 die blitz on a black orc that results in an early badly hurt. Ted Ginn Jr. gets the ball and moves way down field with it but trips on a gfi and KO's himself. Greg Olsen finds himself out for two game after serving as a distraction on the line. Baltimore covers the ball, but plays ring-around-the-rosie with Carolina's side-steppers and they are quickly outnumbered 6 to 3 in their own backfield. Baltimore tries to recover, but the heavy line of the perfect defense costs them and they can't cover the ball well enough. 1-0 Carolina.

A lot of Carolina's strength is out, but they have a deep roster. They set up in a 2xC shallow defense with a tight southern line to promote the blitz. Baltimore runs a heavy 8-man line with double throwers in the backfield. Punishment is dealt to the line with a BH and a KO and a weak southern cage is formed, with the st4 ag4 dump-off thrower carrying the ball. The cage is penetrated and Luke Kuechly picks up his second 1d badly hurt, this time on the star thrower, who manages to get rid of the ball into good coverage. Baltimore, however, ends its second turn this game with a bad troll block. Carolina is unable to capitalize though they are in a better position than before. Baltimore focuses on blocking the south elves and leaves the ball wide open. Carolina snatches it as they injure the second orc thrower and tries to move the ball further down field than necessary but fails the pass. Baltimore secures the ball but the positioning is too loose for the orcs and Luke Kuechly's strip ball taxes the blitzers too much to keep control of the ball. Carolina recovers, breaks free, and scores. 2-0 Carolina

At the last minute, Baltimore lines up a throw teammate touchdown with Blaine Gabbert (Mizzou!) and scores handly. 2-1 Carolina.

Carolina again with the 2xC south die defense. Baltimore plays their same offense, this time using Blaine Gabbert as the quarterback. They deal no damage on the line and try to lock up both C's while Blaine secures the ball deep. Carolina scrambles, breaking free 3 players on the north C. Baltimore is putting good pressure on the mid-pitch but then loses a THIRD turn to their own troll, who finally KO's himself to make the point clear. The lost action for Blaine is too much, Luke Kuechly is back and easily gets the ball out of Blaine's hands allowing Carolina to score. 3-1 Carolina

Defense and offense set up the same, but perfect defense is rolled and Carolina adjusts for heavy north pressure. Baltimore gets the ball, but does not send any players back to protect the wide-open field. Again, Carolina penetrates, this time with 4 players, one marking Blaine. Baltimore moves players back and Baline attempts a pass that fails. It looks to be another easy Carolina touchdown but Luke Kuechly trips on his dodge. The ball is moved to Ray Lewis who shifts it down south. It's taken from him by Carolina but not picked up. Carolina has 3 separate opportunities this drive to win 4-1, but the dice are wicked awful and Blaine gets through eventually. 3-2 Carolina

Clutch moment of the game: Any of the moments where Baltimore left their backfield wide open.

MVP of the game: Luke Kuechly for multiple one dice injuries and four sacks.

Correctly predicted: Absolutely everybody
