Not all great individual performances were rewarded with team wins.

We’ll only remember the big play.
Until the last point of the game, Ben Jagt had had a very un-Jagtian game: just a little more than 100 total yards with two scores, offset by two turnovers. In EDGE terms, it was a 0. But on that last, maximally leveraged play, he joined the ever-growing stable of Empire buzzer-beating Breeze-killers, and swung his evening from meh to memorable.
Jack Williams, who threw the pass, arrived at that juncture from the opposite direction, having already had one of his most productive games of the season and the fifth highest EDGE of the weekend, justifying Evan Lepler’s early bet on expecting to see “Playoff Jack.” (One had to wonder if even Lepler was watching the game on tape delay, so prescient was his vision of a fitting final play.)1 Meanwhile, Ryan Osgar had his lowest net production since Week 2 against Philly, but as relative standards go, there are none higher, and his 2.9 EDGE was still among the top 30.
Among the other broadcast highlights, the BBSM team enjoyed Brian Jones’s full-throated call for removing the Quarter-Ending Incompletions (QEIncs) from player stats. ↩
