Week 5: Cameron Sutton/ItsFearItself vs. Curtis Samuel/UpshallGames
Cameron Sutton is a 2017 third round draft pick for the AFC North Pittsburgh Steelers. The University of Tennessee product could have a bright NFL future if he continues to work his way up the ranks in Pittsburgh. Expect his Fortnite game to be as strong as his coverage on the field.
Curtis Samuel is another promising young NFL player, currently with the Carolina Panthers. Samuel was drafted 40th overall in the 2017 NFL draft after a very successful stint at Ohio State University. The wide receiver has six catches for 81 yards and a score coming off of the bench in Carolina this season so far.
If you’ve heard the name ItsFearItself being tossed around the streaming community lately it’s because he is coming off of a big $30,000 win in the opening game of Sunday’s “stream-vitational” Fortnite competition at TwitchCon. Much like a football coach, he’s been known to give his characters the occasional pep talk to get them fired up.
UpshallGames is the second of two great streamers in tonight’s duo sets. Hailing from Newfoundland, Canada, the Obey streamer recently went off for 27 eliminations in a match, proving that he’s going to be a very hard out in this week’s TNF showdown.
The Carolina Panthers did the Pittsburgh Steelers a favor on Sunday, beating down their AFC North rivals the Baltimore Ravens and keeping the division wide open. The Panthers will look to do the same thing to the Steelers next Thursday, November 8th as they keep compiling quality wins of their own.
Both Tuesday Night feat. Fortnite and Thursday Night Football can be seen at their respective times on Twitch.tv this season. Be sure to tune in for all the action.
Enjoy the streams!
