And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 2:

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Coach Drew's bench outscored his starters last week. I'm not joking. That probably won't happen again, and Aaron Rodgers will rebound, but who are their RBs going to be? The Marauders will try to pile up Thursday night points to go 2-0 in the 3FL South.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Neither of these teams can afford to go 0-2 to start the season, so this game is important. Gronkowski's health once again holds the key, but the Chicago Defense on Sunday night will seal the deal.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Chair wasn't great last week, but they managed to more than double the Brew Crew's week one total. Of course this is a different matchup, but there are just too many injuries for the Beermen to overcome.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
There is no doubt that Peyton Manning is going to carve up the Chiefs - we just need to see how many points he can score. Cam Newton is again in doubt for FitzCorp but that didn't stop them last week. And they'll get to watch their Eagles secure the comeback win on MNF.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This one is for the early West Divison lead and it looks to be a great matchup. The game will hinge on the Matt Ryan vs. Cinci D results, but the Preds have all of those P's and Q's (and O's).

And the game of the week...

the HAW (1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Coach HAW's team came out to a blazing start in week one, outscoring the league and leaving no doubt about the W. This week will be different, though, as the matchups seem to favor the Stompers. The HAW are riding a 9-game regular season winning streak into this weekend. Will MNF make it 10?

Good luck this week.
