Inside the Game - Misleading Final Scores

CE Manager Sep 26, 2016
Blog Image

While the scoreboard tells us who won and lost, it is important to look inside the game to see if there were any misleading final scores. We break down Week 4 in college football here.


Wisconsin 30 Michigan St. 6

Michigan St. outgained the Badgers 325-317 but four turnovers did the Spartans in. Wisconsin scored on a 66-yard fumble recovery while an interception set up another touchdown on a short field. Michigan St. had five drives of 46 yards or more and those resulted in just three points total.

Virginia Tech 54 East Carolina 17

East Carolina lost a second straight game despite playing better than the score shows. The Pirates were outgained by only 19 total yards against Virginia Tech but the Hokies opened the scoring with a punt return for a touchdown while East Carolina was just 3-17 on third and fourth down.

Wake Forest 33 Indiana 28

Indiana outgained the Demon Deacons 611-352 but Hoosiers quarterback Richard Lagow threw five interceptions, one which was returned for a touchdown while two others led to 10 points. Additionally, Indiana turned the ball over on downs twice inside the Wake Forest 30-yard line.

Vanderbilt 31 Western Kentucky 30

Western Kentucky won the yardage battle 496-389 but committed three costly turnovers all in Vanderbilt territory that wiped away 143 yards of offense. The Hilltoppers kicked a field goal with 1:02 left but Vanderbilt drove 75 yards for the tying touchdown with no time left and eventually won on a Western Kentucky missed two-point conversion.

Western Michigan 49 Georgia Southern 31

The Eagles were outgained by only 45 total yards but lost the turnover battle 4-0. Western Michigan scored a touchdown on a 70-yard interception return and recovered a fumble at the Western Kentucky 20-yard line which set up another touchdown. Additionally, the Broncos scored on a 100-yard kickoff return.

Buffalo 23 Army 20

Army won the time of possession by nearly 13 minutes, had a 21-13 first down edge and outgained Buffalo 444-265. The Black Knights blew a 14-point fourth quarter lead however had a chance to win the game but missed a 34-yard field goal at the end of regulation and missed a 43-yard field goal at the start of overtime.

Troy 52 New Mexico St. 6

Despite losing by 46 points, New Mexico St. won the yardage battle 539-492. The Aggies committed five turnovers and while those only led to 10 Troy points, all five took place in Trojans territory including three inside the redzone. Troy also had a blocked punt return for a touchdown and a 100-yard kickoff return for a score.

Idaho 33 UNLV 30

Despite losing in overtime, UNLV outgained the Vandals 539-378 but was unable to finish drives. Idaho opened the scoring by returning an interception 31 yards for a touchdown while the Rebels got into the Idaho redzone five times but had to settle for a field goal three times including one in the opening of overtime.

Arizona St. 51 California 41

California won the yardage battle 637-454 but committed three costly turnovers in the fourth quarter. With the game tied, Arizona St. turned the first one into a field goal while returning an interception for a touchdown two plays later. California drove 75 yards for a touchdown but the Sun Devils returned the ensuing onside kick for a touchdown.

Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints | NO -2.5 O/U: 53.5

When: 8:30 PM ET, Monday, September 26, 2016
Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana

The New Orleans Saints will commemorate one of the more noteworthy games in franchise history when they host the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night in a matchup of longtime NFC South rivals. It will mark the 10-year anniversary of the re-opening of the Superdome after the venue was forced to close for one season in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

While emotions certainly will not be as high as in New Orleans' win over Atlanta a decade ago, the Saints can use any edge to avoid an 0-3 start after dropping their first two games by a combined four points. "This is an important division game," said New Orleans coach Sean Payton, readily acknowledging the significance is far less than the game from 2006. "One team is 0-2 and trying to get a win, and another team that's 1-1." The Falcons rebounded from a 31-24 home loss to Tampa Bay in Week 1 with a 35-28 road win last week at Oakland, which squeezed out a 35-34 victory at New Orleans in the season opener.


ABOUT THE FALCONS (1-1): Matt Ryan had his fewest touchdown passes (21) since his rookie season in 2015, but he off to a fast start with 730 yards passing with five scores and one interception while leading the league with a 121.4 quarterback rating. There is cause for concern in the passing game with star wide receiver Julio Jones sitting out his second straight practice Friday due to a calf injury, but Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said he expects him to play. The Falcons are receiving solid production from the backfield tandem of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, who have combined for 181 rushing yards and 11 receptions. Atlanta's defense ranks 29th overall, allowing an average of 412.5 yards per game.

ABOUT THE SAINTS (0-2): New Orleans was horrendous on defense last season and little has changed -- it ranked 31st in the league with a staggering 451.5 yards surrendered and has been torched through the air for an average of 336.0 yards. Keeping the defense off the field would be easier if the Saints could crank up their running game, with lead back Mark Ingram producing 88 rushing yards on only 21 attempts, including nine carries in last week's 19-16 loss at the New York Giants. "From a rushing standpoint, I think we had some early positive runs, and all of a sudden we end up with the game over and only 13 rushing attempts (overall)," Payton said of the Week 2 loss. "I don't like the balance there." Quarterback Drew Brees has a potent receiving duo in Willie Snead and Brandon Cooks, who have combined for 27 catches and four touchdowns.

Sunday, September 25th: NFL Week 3

We enter week 3 of the NFL season and some intersting lines have been set by the oddmakers. Don't make it a guessing game, let the Covers Experts find the value so that you can cash in big.

Top Cappers Through Week 2

AAA Sports: 12-6 (67%), +$4,234

Matt Fargo: 8-4 (67%), +$3,680

Teddy Covers: 6-1 (86%), +$3,450

 

 

8:30 PM ET - Chicago vs. Dallas (DAL -7.5, O/U 44.5)

The Chicago Bears lost their starting quarterback in Monday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but don't expect to garner much sympathy from their next opponent. Journeyman Brian Hoyer will step in for the injured Jay Cutler for the Bears, who attempt to avoid an 0-3 start when they visit the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

With starter Tony Romo sidelined by a back injury, the Cowboys were forced to start the season with rookie Dak Prescott, who earned his first victory last week by guiding a late touchdown drive in a 27-23 win at Washington. "He exudes confidence," Dallas owner Jerry Jones said about Prescott, a fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi State. "He's got a great supporting cast, but he's using it." Hoyer is with his fifth NFL team but has ample experience in pressure situations, starting nine games for Houston last season and 13 games for Cleveland in 2014. "Whether you're the starter or the backup or the third guy, you prepare every week like you're the starter," Hoyer said. "Just prepare like you're going to play and take it one day at a time and come Sunday, we'll see what happens."


ABOUT THE BEARS (0-2): Chicago not only flat-lined in the 29-14 home loss to the Eagles on Monday night, but came away with a slew of injuries on both sides of the ball. In addition to Cutler (thumb), leading wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (knee) did not practice Thursday while the defense is expected to be without nose tackle Eddie Goldman and linebackers Danny Trevathan and Lamarr Houston, who was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL. Hoyer has a career 15-11 record as a starter but could use a boost from the running game after Jeremy Langford was held to 28 yards on 11 carries Monday. Chicago ranks ninth overall in total defense despite allowing 52 points in two games.

ABOUT THE COWBOYS (1-1): Prescott drew rave reviews during the preseason and has not looked out of place while subbing for Romo, setting an NFL record for the most passes without an interception (75) in a player's first two games. Prescott threw for 292 yards and ran for a touchdown while finding a steady connection with start wideout Dez Bryant, who had seven receptions for 102 yards against the Redskins after opening the season with one catch for eight yards. Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown last week, but found himself on the bench during crunch time after fumbling. The Cowboys' defense has been vulnerable to the pass, giving up an average of 276.5 yards.
