WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Norsemen Win Seventh Title
By Josh Utterback - Jan 02, 2022

The Championship game was a close, back and forth game.  The Norsemen started out with 3 points on Thursday night.  Then on Christmas they added another 5 points, going into Sunday with an 8 point lead.  During the day games on Sunday, the MeggaMen quickly caught up and for most of the afternoon they alternated taking and retaking the lead from each other.  The Norsemen had a few players put up strong numbers, most notably Patrick Mahomes (QB-KC) and Mark Andrews (TE-BAL).  While the MeggaMen got steady performances from a range of players with no great games but good days from CJ Mosley (LB-NYJ) and Jalen Hurts (QB-PHI).  When the dust settled on the afternoon games the Norsemen were ahead by 7.  But both teams had two players in night games to come.

The Sunday night game featured saw Tom and the MeggaMen retaking the lead, netting 13 points from Dalton Schultz (TE-DAL) and Randy Gregory (DL-DAL).  Down by 6 points, the Norsemen had Alvin Kamara (RB-NO) and Jaylen Waddle (WR-MIA) on Monday night.  Kamara barely showed up, getting on 2 receptions and 59 yards.  But throughout the game Waddle was slowly accumulating yardage and receptions.  Chipping away at the lead.  Well into the third quarter Waddle caught a 24 yard pass on his 8th reception to bring the Norsemen tied.  A few plays later he scored a 1 yard TD to put the Norsemen ahead.  He would end the game the 92 yards on 10 receptions and a TD, for 15 points.  Giving the Norsemen a 49-40 victory.

This gives the Norsemen their seventh championship and second in the last three seasons.  The seven titles ties the Barbarians/Whiskey Tango/Trump Molests Collies franchise for the most by a single franchise.  It also give Byron two more than any other owner (Tom and Josh have 5 each).

Patrick Mahomes is named the MVP of the game, by virtue of his 21 points, including three touchdowns.
