There are only 3 weeks remaining in this competition before the playoffs and with the USA pulling away, Europe have it all to do to get back into it and really need a win.
Week 10 – The Captains
The last time these two teams met they were both 0-3. Things have moved on since week 4 as Team ‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys) and ‘JoshPattenden7’ (Josh) face each other once again. Captain America got their first win of the season here then pushed on to 4-5 for the season as Josh sits at 3-6 for the season.
Europe’s captain ‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) will be going head to head with big rival ‘Mr America’ (Ktompkinsii – Kevin) once more. The season started out slightly better for the 5 yard rush boys but from this game in week 4, Mr America took the win and pushed on to 6-3 as the 5 Yard Rush boys have only got one win since standing at 3-6 for the season.
Week 10 – Team Member Matchups
Week 4 saw this matchup as the battle of the 3-0 teams. This time around it’s the battle of the 5-4 teams. The US team of ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff) goes up against team Europe’s ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL). GF2DCom are on a three-game winning streak and will like to add to Poulters 4 game losing streak coming into this game.

Week 10 see’s ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow) for team Europe face USA’s ‘Mericaaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA) once more. BA needs a win here or could find themselves missing the playoffs.
The next matchup on the list is Europe’s ‘AVFCJPS (James) going up against USA’s ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob). JSnake took the win in week 4 and since then has done well moving to 6-3 whilst AVFCJPS has only won twice since with their record 4-5 right now.
The final matchup is between Europe’s ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall) and USA’s ‘We Selected Scut Farkus’ (Shacknado – Brian). Both teams are having solid seasons as WSSF is on 4-5 and Mcllroy is on 5-4. WSSF took the win in week 4 and both teams will want to improve their record to help in the run into the playoffs.
