    I think this one is better, since it removes garbage time. For the uninitiated, garbage time is when a team's win probability during a game is less than 5% or greater than 95%. This is a concept that is somehow unfamiliar to the Atlanta Falcons and their head coach, who have just lost two games in a row after possessing a 99.9% and 99.1% win probability in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.

    But, in short: it effectively accounts for a team's performance only while the game still matters.

    Week 4: Thurs, Sept. 30th - Mon, Sept. 27th:



    Thursday Night:
    Denver-Tauntauns.png NY-Xwings.png
    Tauntauns @ X-Wings
    The (0-3) Tauntauns turn to the Meadowlands in search of their first victory against the (0-3) X-Wings who have yet to get off the ground themselves.


    Sunday Afternoon:
    Minnesota-Togrutas.png Houston-Reeks.png
    Togrutas @ Reeks
    Two talented teams that have yet to earn victory numero uno, the (0-3) Togrutas battle against the (0-3) Reeks.


    Indianapolis-Troopers.png Chicago-Wampas.png
    Troopers @ Wampas
    The defensively-minded Troopers (2-1) head to Hoth against the newly reorganized, prodigious unit of Nek Fuls' (3-0) Wampas.


    Cleveland-Jawas.png Dallas-Rebels.png
    Jawas @ Rebels
    Two of the best ground assault squads in the galaxy square off when the Jawas (2-1) travel to the rising Rebels (1-2).


    Jedi @ Ewoks POSTPONED
    The (3-0) Jedi look to keep things rolling against the (3-0) Ewoks in a matchup of Super Bowls past.

    NewOrleans-Androids.png Detroit-Rancors.png

    Androids @ Rancors
    The Androids (1-2) keep losing components of their squad while the Rancors (1-2) look to claw their way back to .500


    Sunday Night:
    Philadelphia-Yodas.png SanFran-B1s.png
    Yodas @ B-1s
    The Clone wars wage as the timid Yodas (0-2-1) battle the B-1s (2-1) who, true to their namesake, have the reinforcements necessary for the "next man up" mentality.


    Monday Night:
    Atlanta-Interceptors.png GreenBay-Hutts.png
    Interceptors @ Hutts
    The wingless Interceptors (0-3) will look for a new way to lose against the hefty Hutts (3-0) in the final primetime showdown of the week.

    It would be hilarious if the Jets won and this is supposed to be one of their very few winnable games, so I'm going for X-Wings tonight. Ain't no way we're seeing another 0-16 team any time soon. Not sure yet about the other picks...

    It seems they are hoping to move it to Monday or Tuesday, but I think we are going to scrap this game for the week just to play it safe. Moving forward I don't know what exactly we can do to prevent any last minute changes, it's just going to be an unpredictable season and we're gonna have to deal with it the best we can.

    So in an effort to maintain the 7 game slate we are going to replace Jedi @ Ewoks with
