Week 10 Survival Football

It’s extremely aggravating when a team doesn’t play up to potential or expectations. And especially unnerving when they fail miserably on the week you finally decide they’re trustworthy. That’s what happened to me when the Bengals proved they’re only human in Miami and re-leveled the playing field with the eight other competitors in my survival football double elimination league. Now, you’re probably thinking I feel lucky that it’s double elimination, but I honestly don’t. You see, for the past four weeks prior to this Cincinnati defeat, I was the only undefeated player in the league. So I would have won the whole thing a while ago if it weren’t double elimination, but I’m not going to dwell on that. Instead, I’m going to focus on the future, and still trying to win this thing.

So I’m going back to the drawing board, and still focusing on finding the team this week with the biggest possibility of winning. But before I get to that, let’s do a recap of the survival season so far…

Week One: Indianapolis – WON
Week Two: New England – WON
Week Three: Seattle – WON
Week Four: Kansas City – WON
Week Five: St. Louis – WON
Week Six: Denver – WON
Week Seven: Green Bay – WON
Week Eight: Carolina – WON
Week Nine: Cincinnati – LOST

Jacksonville lost its number one weapon for the season when Justin Blackmon was suspended for the rest of the year, so they’ve become utterly punchless again. Against Tennessee’s stout defense and the suddenly rejuvenated Chris Johnson, the team with the biggest possibility of winning this week is the Titans. Jake Locker isn’t perfect, but even he can pick apart the abysmal defense of the Jaguars, even coming off a bye week.

If you’ve already used Tennessee in your survival league, it’s tough being you because there are no other obvious choices. However, if you desperately need a team to get on board with, you could do worse than Seattle over Atlanta, Indianapolis over St. Louis, or Houston over Arizona.
