WEEK #7 UPDATE
Congratulations to Jeremy Street for winning the 7th annual Austin Hardware Charity Football Pool.
There was not a lot of drama in Week #7. After all 3 players were “revived” after picking teams that lost in Week #6, there was little drama in Week #7. One of our players failed to make a pick, eliminating them right away. So, it came down to just two.
Jeremy advanced Sunday afternoon when the Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Houston Texans 38-20. The game held a bit of intrigue as the Texans led by 3 through three quarters. But Raiders running back Josh Jacobs gave the Raiders the lead for good with 13:32 to play with a 7-yard TD run, capping a 7-play, 76-yard drive for the Raiders. Jacobs would score again, finishing off another 7-play drive with a 15-yard TD run halfway through the quarter. Las Vegas would ice it with just over 3 minutes to play when Duron Harmon took an interception of a Davis Mills pass 73 yards for the game’s final score.
The week (and ultimately, the final result) came down to Monday night’s match-up between the Bears and Patriots on a cold, dreary night in Foxboro. Our last player counted on New England to take care of business at home. But Chicago jumped out to an early 10-0 lead and, with New England unsettled at quarterback, never looked back, upsetting the Pats 33-14.
