In one league I have a three-game winning streak.  In the other, my opponent is the one with the streak of three; earned by mowing me down.

Half Measure Puts the Kibosh on POWERS, Streak Climbs to Three

Half Measure (6-6) 139.90

POWERS (6-6) 103.95

Half Measure beat POWERS 139.90 – 103.95 for a second win in as many head-to-head matchups. This week, Josh McCown did the most damage, putting up 33.00 points. It was a downgrade, however, from the 53.00 points the Seattle Seahawks Defense got the last time these teams played. Things could have been different, POWERS had several starters score zero points. This is the tightest victory for Half Measure in two head-to-head matchups. They defeated POWERS 173.80 – 125.35 in Week 2.
