2022 Long Island EFL Week #3 Thanksgiving Bowl!

Recommended Posts




It was (24) Dexter Bussey's speed and resilience that beat the Baltimore Ravens to the punch for the Lions as Bussey finished the day with 159 all purpose yards with two touchdown runs, handing the Baltimore Ravens their third straight loss!

On any given day we all know, all of us ballers in the brotherhood of electric football, that anything can happen, but the Cleveland Browns (2-1) were able to contain the tough Chicago Bears (1-2).  Maybe the real story of the day is Cleveland and their defense. They held LIEFL All-Pro star return Man Willie Gault to just 69 yards total yards in the game.  That was enough to give the Browns what they needed to edge the Bears 7-3! Cleveland ran the ball 12 times behind the emerging Mike Pruitt who finished the day with 47 yards rushing with one touchdown. Pruitt and the Cleveland front line kept the ball almost the entire first half. That's was that was all Cleveland needed to beat Chicago on Thanksgiving Day! The Browns are plowing through a tough schedule but man do they look good this season after a strong draft! The Browns face the Raiders at home next week and they have a chance to break the season wide open if they can beat Las Vegas. Chicago has a rough road ahead in one of the toughest divisions in the LIEFL. They will be a contender!  William Perry had three tackles in the game, but it wasn't enough to beat that Browns offensive line.

With the Lions you never know what Dexter Bussey has in mind. The Lions continue to bring tradition to Long Island Electric Football with one of the most electrifying players in our game, among many stars. Bussey ran the ball 12 times for 83 yards and two touchdowns including a 29-yard TD scamper which gave the Detroit Lions their first win of the season over the winless Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens contained Bussey's special teams to just two kick returns for 76 yards, a season low for the speedy back. The Lions started the season (72-74) all-time, ranked #16 in the LIEFL. Bussey now has an all-time 11,163 all-purpose yards with 78 touchdowns in his career in the LIEFL and he goes down as one of the most electrifying players in the league! Last year Bussey rushed for 34-471-9TDS. He had one receptions for a 70 yard touchdown, and he had 20-1322 kick return yards with six of those 20 returns for 100 yard touchdown runs, totaling 1,863 all-purpose yards!
With five LIEFL All-Pro's on the Ravens and Ravens All-Pro Derrick Mason, he did not see action until the second half and the Lions kept Baltimore's offense caged. Ravens running back Jamal Lewis had just 42 yards rushing against a brutal Detroit defense as the Detroit Lions beat the Baltimore Ravens 14-7! Detroit wouldn't let that clock beat them and Bussey was the clock killer running right and left with Johnny Freeport running his mouth the entire game, basically trying to psych out Joe Bino the alternate coach into making mistakes, and it worked.  Bino said, "The guy is a league nemesis and his talk on the field doesn't match his team's performance. To keep Bussey under 200 yards is a success. We may have lost the game but we gave our all." Who could forget Derrick Mason's stellar play in last year's playoffs when the Dolphins edged the Ravens . Mason set an LIEFL Playoff record with 9 attempts and 595 yards on kick off's and four 100 yard TDS against Miami 52-46!
