And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Brewers are in and the Stompers are out of the postseason but don't think that's the end of the story. Regardless of the outcome of this game, Coach Bev needs to score at least 62 points to keep from adding her name to the list of lowest season total scores of all time.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
It's a shame that this game doesn't have any real implications, because it just might be the best matchup of the week. The 'Morons will have a lot to watch on Thanksgiving. So there's that. Who will at least get to add another W to their record?

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Bolts fell out of first place in the 3FL last week but they still have a shot at the #1 seed. They need a win here and they'll be the favorite against the South champion Vipers. It will come down to Brees vs. Newton and which coach makes the correct decision on their starting defense.

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Renegades
Can you believe that Peyton Manning and the 'Bums are out of the running for the West Division title? They seem to have deserved a better fate. But don't cry for Coach Coaldog just yet. He still has a shot to win the season points total and will enter the playoffs with the highest scoring player in the league leading his team.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Marauders
FitzCorp still has a legitimate shot at winning the North and upping their playoff seed in the process. The Marauders have been hard figure out all year but they have secured our last postseason invite and isn't that enough for now? Both QBs play on Thanksgiving Day, so have some turkey and check your iPhones for the scores.

And the game of the week...

THE Haw (-1/2) vs. Predacons
It all comes down to this for the West Division title. Somehow the Preds are atop the league with one game to play, but their stay at the top should be a short one. The CAPS are riding a 7 game winning streak and have some favorable matchups this week. But does anyone want to take a streak like that into the playoffs? Or to be the #1 seed? Perhaps they'll both be wishing for a loss.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
