Dawgs vs jagger

A primetime rally on Monday Night Football (5.40 points, 45% of their total score) wasn’t nearly enough for jagger, as Pigs Island Dawgs easily earned the 35.90 to 11.90 victory. The late efforts were ultimately a bit disappointing, as their original Monday night projection was 26.20 points. Pigs Island Dawgs was led by Cam Newton (246 Pas Yds, 5 TD). The Carolina QB passed for five touchdowns and provided 17.00 points in the beatdown. Pigs Island Dawgs played one starter with zero points while jagger also served up one goose egg, meaning both sides missed scoring opportunities. The 35.90 points represented the highest total in the league this week. Pigs Island Dawgs (4-0-0, 189.40 points) remains in first place, while jagger (3-1-0, 140.20 points) stays in second place in Round 2.

jagger had one important starter that left points out on the field. Even though Rob Gronkowski saw a total of seven targets, he only reeled in two catches.
