The Bros have returned from their longest regular-season road trip, and just in time for the stretch drive to the finish line. When we left home port in the middle of Week 11, Sean was on the way to extending his newfound lead to 2 games. As our vacation wound down, however, Glenn had pared that margin by half, but would he be able to maintain it in Week 14?

Our splits action began early, with the Thursday night game between the Cowboys and Bears. Dallas got off to a fast start with a long touchdown drive on their opening possession. But it was all Chicago after that, as the Bears went on to a lopsided 31-24 win that gave the Junior Bro an advantage heading into Sunday.

Glenn recovered from the Thursday stumble by winning the Chargers-Jaguars split — a convincing 45-10 final that nonetheless saw Los Angeles eliminated from playoff contention. But while that game was wrapping up, the Raiders were falling 42-21 to the Titans, which meant that it would all come down to the Sunday night game to decide the week — a night that has been anything but kind to the Senior Bro in 2019.

Perhaps it was karma that the Sunday nighter was a rematch of the thrilling Thursday matchup in Week 5 between the Seahawks and Rams, narrowly won by Seattle when the visitors missed what should have been a game-winning field goal. In the latest installment, the Rams were looking for redemption at home against the division-leading Seahawks, and they got it. Los Angeles dominated the game en route to a 28-12 win that also gave Glenn his first Sunday night split victory of the season and kept the Bros one game apart in the Surfy standings.  

Glenn and Sean tied for the week’s best record at 12-4. Ben was third at 9-7, slipping to 9 games off the pace in the overall standings. We correctly picked winners Atlanta, Cleveland, Minnesota, New York Jets, Green Bay, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. No one anticipated the wins by Houston or Kansas City.
