Cincinnati Bengals (@ Ball_Is_Life044) 7-1-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Ravens 42-6 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Jaguars 44-24 (Week Nine)

Next Up: vs. JFF Browns (Week Ten); AT JFF Saints (Week Eleven)

Comment: Shane, similar to Top Dawgg’s JFF Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC South, has had long stretches without any human competition.  He missed out on his last human game, and his next one is not until Week Twelve versus Deuce’s JFF Houston Texans.  The JFF Bengals currently have the #2 overall defense and the #1 rushing defense in the league.



Seattle Seahawks (@ poefield109) 7-1-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Panthers 45-37 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Raiders 42-3 (Week Nine)

Next Up: vs. JFF N.Y. Giants (Week Ten); AT JFF Chiefs (Week Eleven)

Comment: Cadillac has been involved in some heavy duty trash-talking sessions with not one, but BOTH of the Parsons Brothers.  He challenged both to non-league games, but then, when the two were ready to play, Cadillac was nowhere to be found.  Cadillac came back though the next day and said, “I don’t ‘duck’ NO ONE.”  You have to remember, this is the same man who said, “If you see me in a fight with a Bear … help the Bear!”  Big game coming up in both Week Eleven (JFF Chiefs) and Week Twelve (JFF Cardinals).  Both should be great games.



Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@ UNCLE___SAM) 8-0-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Vikings 76-26 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Browns 48-21 (Week Nine)

Next Up: vs. JFF Falcons (Week Ten); AT JFF Redskins (Week Eleven)

Comment: It’s ABOUT TIME!!  Top Dawgg has had the longest wait in-between human user vs. human user games more so than any other active member of the league.  His last human opponent?  His cousin DMan and his JFF Pittsburgh Steelers in Week Four.  His next human opponent?  Haywood and his JFF Washington Redskins in Week Eleven.  We’ll see if the QB Jameis Winston-to-WR Mike Evans connection can live up to the hype in a human user vs. human user contest.



Dallas Cowboys (@ TD33DORSETT) 7-2-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Redskins 12-0 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Cardinals 28-21 (Week Nine)

Next Up: AT JFF Jaguars (Week Ten); “BYE” Week (Week Eleven)

Comment: First, the “bad” news:  Similar to the Week One CFM “glitch” that caused Cadillac’s JFF Seahawks to earn an unfortunate and unpredictable loss after Cadillac quit the game looking to restart it, the same exact thing happened to Cliff’s JFF Cowboys during their Week Eight action with Haywood’s JFF Redskins.  And to add insult to injury, the CFM “glitch” caused starting QB Tony Romo to become injured for five weeks.  Da Commish was nice enough to “loan” Cliff the quarterback services of Joe Flacco for the next few weeks.  Speaking of Flacco, now the “good” news:  Cliff got the best of his “friend / foe” Damian in Week Nine with HB Lance Dunbar rushing 28 times for 242 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns.  With running numbers like that, who needs Flacco?



Arizona Cardinals (@ INGLEWOODD) 7-1-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Eagles 35-14 (Week Eight); Lost to the JFF Cowboys 28-21 (Week Nine)

Next Up: vs. JFF Rams (Week Ten); vs. JFF Lions (Week Eleven)

Comment: Damian confided to this Story Editor that he absolutely HATES losing league games to Cliff’s JFF Dallas Cowboys.  Damian feels like he has completely “owned” Cliff in non-league games, but Cliff has found a way to edge him out in at least two of their four or five league-sanctioned battles.  Well, this most recent loss to Cliff’s Boyz will surely fire up his JFF Cardinals to want to do damage against Cadillac’s JFF Seahawks come Week Twelve.  Everyone will be watching that NFC West battle (assuming it is streamed live).  Stay tuned.



Denver Broncos (@ VitalMindz5) 6-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Chargers 65-14 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Patriots 48-10 (Week Nine)

Next Up: AT JFF Raiders (Week Ten); AT JFF Rams (Week Eleven)

Comment:  He’s baaaaaaaaaaaack.  Denver starting QB Peyton Manning is back, and so is Kory’s cocky swagger.  The JFF Broncos literally destroyed Andrew’s JFF Patriots in Week Nine.  Some watching the live stream of the game said that on one play, WR Demaryius Thomas was so wide open, that he actually stopped to wave at his family members in the stands before catching a touchdown pass from Manning. Ouch.  Denver is ready to rumble.



Kansas City Chiefs (@ ShadySlick) 7-1-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Rams 59-17 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF N.Y. Jets 55-10 (Week Nine)

Next Up: AT JFF Bills (Week Ten); vs. JFF Seahawks (Week Eleven)

Comment: This week, Shady will go up against not one, but TWO of his “former” teams.  During the JFF Spring 2015 season, Shady led the JFF Buffalo Bills to an undefeated Regular Season record, with his only loss coming in JFF Super Bowl XI 34-31 to Shane’s JFF Seattle Seahawks.  Then, during the off-season, Shady temporarily had ownership of the JFF Seattle Seahawks, but Cadillac out-bid him for the ownership rights, Shady essentially got to play this season for free.  One team has a stingy defense while the other has a powerful offense.  We’ll see how things go for an Owner / Coach who is VERY familiar with the personnel and talent of both teams.



Green Bay Packers (@ BarNone12000) 8-0-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Saints 53-45 (Week Eight)

Next Up: vs. JFF Bears (Week Ten); vs. JFF Eagles (Week Eleven)

Comment: Part Two of the JFF Bears vs. JFF Packers NFC North Division rivalry takes place this week.  Will Green Bay remain undefeated?  Or will Que’s JFF Bears earn a measure of revenge?  We shall see!  If Green Bay wins … the NFC North Division title is essentially Tim Dog’s to own.  If Green Bay loses … well, things will get very interesting down the stretch.



Indianapolis Colts (@ champ31p) 8-1-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Steelers 31-28 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF N.Y. Giants 23-13 (Week Nine)

Next Up: “BYE” Week (Week Ten); vs. JFF Patriots (Week Eleven)

Comment: Champ’s JFF Colts escaped with a close victory over DMan’s JFF Steelers, and now Indianapolis is very close to clinching the AFC South Division title and either the #1 or #2 Seed in the AFC Conference playoffs.  Next up:  Andrew’s JFF New England Patriots in Week Eleven.



Chicago Bears (@ Queesdoe812) 6-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Patriots 28-27 (Week Eight)

Next Up: AT JFF Packers (Week Ten); vs. JFF Vikings (Week Eleven)

Comment: Sometimes you’re good, and sometimes you’re lucky.  Que admitted that his razor thin close victory over Andrew’s JFF Patriots was “more luck than talent.”  New England’s Kicker, Stephen Gostkowski, missed a 50 plus yard field goal at the end of the game to give the JFF Chicago Bears a much needed victory.  Now, it’s “rematch” time in the NFC North Division, as Que prepares for his second battle with Tim Dog’s JFF Green Bay Packers.



New England Patriots (@ SLIMDAWG1979) 5-4-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Bears 28-27 (Week Eight); Lost to the JFF Broncos 48-10 (Week Nine)

Next Up: “BYE” Week (Week Ten); AT JFF Colts (Week Eleven)

Comment: Andrew was so devastated after his Week Nine loss to Kory’s JFF Broncos, that he actually thought Da Commish had accidentally changed the league settings from All-Pro to All-Madden.  “I know there are guys in the league who are probably better than me, but 38 points better than me? I just don’t buy that.”  New England Quarterback Tom Brady was intercepted four times, and Denver’s defense forced two fumbles.  Can Andrew rebound against Champ’s JFF Colts in Week Eleven?  We shall see!



Buffalo Bills (@ ModeOne4Ever) 6-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF N.Y. Jets 50-14 (Week Eight)

Next Up: vs. JFF Chiefs (Week Ten); AT JFF Dolphins (Week Eleven)

Comment: The “good” news:  The JFF Bills currently have the #3 overall defense in the league and the #2 pass defense in the league.  They also have only allowed an average of 17.7 points per game in their three human user vs. human user games.  The “bad” news:  Air’s Buffalo squad is the lowest scoring team in the league against human opponents, averaging a paltry 15.0 points per game in three games. No team will win too many games with such an unproductive offense.



Pittsburgh Steelers (@ dman_of_God) 7-2-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Colts 31-28 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Ravens 28-23 (Week Nine)

Next Up: AT JFF N.Y. Jets (Week Ten); AT JFF Titans (Week Eleven)

Comment: DMan was “so close (to defeating the JFF Colts),” but yet “so far away (from winning).”  DMan has only earned a playoff berth once before in The JFF (during the Fall 2013 season), and he very much wants to experience playoff competition for a second time.  His JFF Steelers are only allowing a very stingy league-leading 235.6 offensive yards per game (163 passing yards and 72.6 rushing yards).



Washington Redskins (@ thawood505) 5-4-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Cowboys 12-0 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Vikings 42-6 (Week Nine)

Next Up: “BYE” Week (Week Ten); vs. JFF Buccaneers (Week Eleven)

Comment: Haywood was nice enough to let Cliff and Da Commish know that if the JFF Cowboys and JFF Redskins seem as though they might end the Regular Season with the same record, he would gladly take a voluntary loss to either the JFF Eagles in Week Sixteen or Cliff’s JFF Cowboys in Week Seventeen.  Awwww.  Haywood is a gentleman and a good sport for such a gesture.



Houston Texans (@ deuce1413) 5-4-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Titans 44-10 (Week Eight); Defeated JFF Eagles 70-24 (Week Nine)

Next Up: “BYE” Week (Week Ten); AT JFF Browns (Week Eleven)

Comment: Deuce got back to his winning ways, and the JFF Texans currently have the fifth best passing offense in the league.  If they could pull off an “upset” against Shane’s JFF Bengals in Week Twelve, who knows what could happen from there?  We’ll see what happens.



San Francisco 49ers (@ Pasadena Soldier**) 3-5-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Rams 20-17 (Week Nine)

Next Up: AT JFF Saints (Week Ten); AT JFF N.Y. Giants (Week Eleven)


** Pasadena Soldier abruptly quit the league after his Week Nine loss to the JFF Denver Broncos

Comment: Long-time JFF league members know that I usually do not allow a CPU-controlled team to remain in the Power Rankings, but for former league member Pasadena Soldier, I am making an “exception.”   Can the CPU led JFF 49ers win more games than the Soldier led JFF 49ers?  We shall see!
