The Comm-nosticator is finished for the year, but game previews are not...

#1 Lightning vs. #8 Marauders
The Bolts are back on top after outscoring the rest of the league in week 13, so they'll defend the title from the one seed. But is that where anyone wants to be? I'm pretty sure they can't complain about being only 13 points short of tying their own record for most team points scored in a season. The Marauders may come in at the bottom but they earned a W in both of their last two games to end up with a winning record for the year. And they may have lost to the Lightning in both matchups this year but only by a combined eight points. Plus, you know, there's the curse.

#2 THE Haw vs. #7 Misfits, Inc.
THE Haw won again last week and that makes eight in a row after starting the season 1-4. They're going to have to run that number to 11 in order to get their fourth 3FL championship, but we're getting ahead of ourselves. This one won't be as lopsided as the Yahoo! projections think. The strangest part is that we might see two backup QBs face off in the quarterfinals. Ok, that's wrong. The strangest part is that it looks like FitzCorp will enter the locked roster postseason without a single Philadelphia Eagle on their squad.

#3 Predacons vs. #6 Spiked Vipers
The Preds came within two points of a division title and the top seed, but maybe that was by design? I'm guessing that with a late scratch TE on SNF maybe not. If they can get through week 14 with a victory their matchups will get easier but that's going to be a tough task. SpiVi will be waiting for a primetime comeback, with almost half of their players going on Sunday or Monday night. We'll all have to stay up late to see what happens in what might be our closest game of the week.

#4 Dumbbums vs. #5 Yuengling Brewers
Well, isn't this interesting. The high flying 'Bums are the fourth seed. How did that happen? They have the same record as the Brew Crew but have scored over 220 more points this season, an average of 17 more points per week. Yikes. It may get ugly. But don't think the Brewers are going down without a fight. RGIII still has something to prove, right? Ah, who are we kidding, this one is probably going to get out of hand. A Brewers win would be the upset of the playoffs.

Good luck in the playoffs! The trophy awaits!
