Many of you play in multiple fantasy leagues, so Monday night games can be both heaven and hell depending on where you are sitting. For instance, if you were trailing entering Monday night and you had Tom Brady, Brandon Marshall, Wes Welker and BenJarvus Green-Ellis left to play, you would feel pretty good, right?
Or, if you were trailing by 25 points with only the Patriots defense left, then you would feel rather poorly, would you not agree?
Well, a strange thing happened on Monday night. While I should not use an NFL.com blog to admit that I switched over to watch John Cena join the Nexus on RAW — but only because my wife wanted to watch wrestling — I did get a pleasant surprise when I saw that the Patriots were leading the Dolphins 41-14. At that point, I imagined that my studs put up the majority of those points for the Patriots, and that I was sitting pretty.
Instead, I pulled a split. And not the split that you would imagine, because the Patriots special teams and defense provided 29 points and minor miracle of a win.
So what happened to you on Monday? Did Randy Moss cost you? Or were you on the other end of the Patriots special teams performance?
The doctor is in. Let the therapy session begin.
