Monday Night: Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
Bye Week: Texans, Colts, Saints, Steelers



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 11:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
With last weeks win the Preds are have secured a spot in the postseason and are tied for the best record in the league. Perhaps they'll just take the last three weeks of the season off. The 'Morons haven't won in three weeks and are no longer a lock for the playoffs unless they finish strong.  This final bye week isn't going to be helpful to them.

Spiked Vipers (-2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
These two have matching records and are trying to surge above .500 for a direct line to the playoffs. But the Vipers have emerged as a late season powerhouse and don't look to slow down any time soon. They may be projected at 70 points per week for the rest of the year.

Misfits, Inc (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Do you believe that the newlyweds could tie FitzCorp for the best record in the North Division with a win this week? It will come down to the Giants/Eagles game on Sunday night to set the stage for Tom Brady to attempt a Monday night comeback. The Renegades TE choice could be the most important one of the week.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Both of these teams are clawing toward a playoff berth, but the 'Bums are going to have a difficult time with five players on a bye this week. Will they fill the starting lineup? As for the furniture, will Michael Vick even play at all? It will be a good one. But a low scoring one.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. ray ray haw
I can't believe I just typed that. 2-8 (-1/2) vs. 8-2? It's looking that way. Our first place haw are busy preparing for the postseason (plus their two best players are on a bye). Don't look now, but the Bolts still have a shot at the division title and a playoff spot. What?

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Coach Hoss' team is currently the #2 seed and at the top of the league points total, scoring over 700 points in our first 10 weeks. But he'll have to face the rest of the year without a big part of that effort. Matt Schaub is out for the season, replaced by...um...Jay Cutler. Ouch. That might not stop them this week but the long term projections are, obviously, not as good.

Good luck this week.
