Maniak Monthly Awards-Dec. 2018

By • Jan 14th, 2019 • Category: Uncategorized

Well, it’s a familiar story once again, as the Clowns marched to another championship with a victory over New Orleans in the title game.  In a year where offenses reached new heights, the Clowns still proved to be the most explosive of all, led by the breakout season of young star QB Patrick Mahomes, who’s expected to be named a first team All-Star next month.

Las Vegas almost streaked through another regular season unbeaten as well, save for one upset loss in Week 10.  But if they return most of this amazing group of superstars, they will be the heavy favorites to win again next year.  Perhaps if another team can find their own version of Mahomes or rookie back Saquon Barkley, we’ll see some new blood in the playoffs next season.

Congratulations once again to the champs, and here are the awards for December:
