We received solid performances from Carolina running back Mike Tolbert (9 points) and tight end Jared Cook (9 points). Tolbert is only on the roster because Tampa Bay’s Doug Martin is out indefinitely and Cook was in the lineup because our starter, Denver’s Julius Thomas, was on bye.
In that league we were bolstered again by the Chiefs’ defense which scored us 21 points. If only the Chiefs could play against Buffalo every week.
So there it is. Three victories without very impressive lineups.
To my opponents, all I can say is: I feel your pain.
