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

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The 'Morons have scored 15 more points this season than their opponent, but they somehow need wins and outside help for a shot at the playoffs. Meanwhile the Brew Crew is guaranteed a division title and a playoff spot. Funny how things work out in the 3FL sometimes.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Rivalry week always features this battle of the twins and this year it has huge implications. The loser of this matchup is officially knocked out of the playoffs. So who gets the victory? We'll know more after the Thursday night game, but the Stompers have the RB advantage by the smallest of margins.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Preds held on for a victory last week and clinched their 12th postseason berth in our 13 years. FitzCorp would probably clinch with a win this week, but that's going to be difficult with Romo on a bye. Of course, they might clinch with a loss, too.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Chair probably need to win out for a shot at the playoffs but that's not going to be an easy task without their franchise QB. The Vipers can't seem to get out of their own way lately, but a close battle might be just what they need to get warmed up for the postseason. It's going to be a good one.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. THE Haw
Wow, these rivalry week matchups just keep getting better. The CAPS are on a five game winning streak, but they now have to face Peyton Manning and the West leading 'Bums. It will be an uphill battle but we'll need to stay up on MNF to see if Coach Haw's team can complete the comeback.

And the game of the week...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
This battle is big for both of these teams. The Bolts are hanging on to the number one spot in the league by just four points with three weeks to play, while the Marauders are at the bottom of the playoff picture and looking to move closer to securing a spot. These two just might meet again in three weeks in a quarterfinal matchup.

Good luck this week.
