3FL Notes: S14: Week 8 Preview

Another week, another divisional sweep. This time it was the South over the West. And we saw two streaks continue - the HAW's 5-game winning streak and the Stompers' 5-game losing streak.

Remember that there is an early morning game on Sunday this week. The NFL decided that it would be a good idea to have another game at Wembley Stadium, this time at 9:30am EDT.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Brady and Wilson seem to be back into form lately, and they'll face off in one of our better matchups this week. With a combined 13 players having either a P or Q beside their name we'll have to be paying attention during warmups to see who actually ends up on the field.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Is it about time for FitzCorp to break out? They have scored less than their projected total for the past three weeks in a row. Maybe the QB switch is the answer for a turnaround. On the other side, it seems like Aaron Rodgers is on the MVP list every week, doesn't it? No controversy there. But the 'Morons will need to decide on a Kicker.

the HAW (-1) vs. Renegades
The CAPS have escaped their past two games with 1 point victories. This week Yahoo! is projecting a HAW win of 20 points and it might not be too far off. That would make 6 in a row and 15 of their last 16 in the regular season.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The sneaky Chair has jumped up into the #2 spot in the league. Not too many of the pundits saw that one coming. Meanwhile, the Stompers need a victory here to have any chance at the playoffs. It's never too late to start a streak.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
It looks like Jimmy Graham may hold the key to this one. Will he play? How much? The QB head-to-head matchup tonight will be a great start to a game that will last from Thursday all the way until Monday.

And the game of the week...

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Jay Cutler finally got the chance to start for the Preds last week and he turned in by far his worst game of the year. So does that mean Nick Foles has his job back? Coach Sinkerbeam is bound to choose the wrong one. And everyone will have to watch Tony Romo on MNF to see if he can mount a comeback. Ugh.

Good luck this week.
