Eligibility: Don't Suck

Darf Box

As per the usual, the Box was hot out the gate at 4-1 but a all-too-typical ending continued their playoff-less stretch (thats every season now). A dreadful 1-7 run to close out the season. But Darf was 1 of 4 teams to score 1200 points this season. And despite the collapse was just 1 win shy of a playoff spot. This will be the 4th PJ Bowl apperance for Darf Box, they are 2-1.

My Ditka Her Butkus

MDHB didn't want it to end like this... After trading for Miller & Fournette to vie for a Championship — they fell short, ending the season 1-4. This is MDHBs 2nd PJ Bowl. They are 0-1.

Darf Box beat MDHB 108-97 in Week 2.

Halftime Show: Madonna!

Well hell to the fuck yeah!

Papa John's Bowl V (2015)

Darf Box blasts Finger Blasters – Claim bragging rights in Consolation Bowl

Twas a disappointing end to the season for these teams having narrowly missed a playoff berth. Resulting in a bittersweet bowl bashing as Darf Box destroy the Finger Blasters behind Fitzpatrick, DeAngelo Darf Box, Lacy & Baldwin... Pick any 3, they outscored the entire Blasters team. Darf Box gets the rubber match & the hardware as these teams split match-ups in the regular season, effectively blocking each other from the playoffs. Darf Box becomes a 2-time Papa Johns winner, previously winning PJB2.

Papa John's Bowl IV (2014)

Centipedes Finally Win Something

Baby Centipedes vs MDHB — Baby Centipedes played like they had nothing to lose (because they already lost it all in W13). They suffocate My Ditka in Her Butkus's first bowl game by score of 77-68. "TD" TY Hilton led the team with 25 points. Perhaps Hilton's greatest accomplishment was not scoring the GW TD in the PJ Bowl – rather it was the GW TD vs the Browns forcing Hoyer out & Manziel in.

Papa John's Bowl III (2013)

BEER Completes Bowl Trifecta!

Team BEER v Darf Box — Team BEER becomes the first team to win every bowl game (including championship) as they route Darf Box 128 - 106. Drew Brees & Josh Gordon lead the quest for pizza. Darf Box made all the right moves but was unable to defend the PJ Bowl title despite a goose-egg from the BEER Flex.

Papa John's Bowl II (2012)
