Hens Fall to Eagles as NFFL Playoff Race Heats Up

Monticello News (Monticello, FL) – The race for the 2011 NFFL Playoffs were thrown into complete turmoil as the Golden Eagles came from behind to defeat the Monticello Cornish Hens 112-103.  Following the loss Hens fans took to the streets of Monticello and set fire to the Hens offices.  “Something needs to be done. We are the 99% and will Occupy Monticello until the Hens’ leaderships meet our demands,” said OM spokes-human Sean Penn.  The movement’s demands include free hot wings from Chicken Delite, a 20% off coupon to Family Dollar for all OM members, and a lead for Penn in a made for TV movie.  Hens’ owner Tyler “Molotov” McNeill declined to address the crowd of looters and issued a statement indicating he was “drinking champagne from the NFFL Cup like a pimp” and would address their concerns “if he had time, perhaps in 2014.”

Six teams will qualify for the 2011 NFFL Playoffs with each division champion earning a first round bye.  If two teams have identical records tie-breakers are used to determine who advances.  These tie-breakers are head-to-head record, total points scored (“TPS”) and intra-divisional record.  The current playoff scenario for each team is detailed below.
