3FL Notes: Week 7 Preview

Well that was an exciting week of games! Prime time comebacks upon comebacks were fun, and the Marauders suffered their first loss of the season. Also, the Renegades finally didn't lose (although they remain winless after our season's first tie).

Don't forget there is another early Sunday morning London game this week for some reason.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds are now third in scoring but tenth in our league standings. Over the last three weeks they are 0-2-1 with those games being decided by a total of six points. But FitzCorp doesn't care about all that. They are flying high and should take this one even if they score a bit below their 103 points per week average.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. the HAW
These teams have even records and this should be a close game. The big question is whether Tom Brady will set a new 3FL record for individual points when he takes on the Steelers. Still, I think we'll see a Sunday night comeback by PEP's RBs. It has happened before.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Coach Val almost had her first victory of the season last week, but Andrew Luck put up 20 points on Sunday night and made it a tie instead. While it's not technically a loss it probably doesn't feel any better. They'll have another chance for win #1 this week against the 'Bums though, especially if Shady McCoy is ruled out.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Wow, we have a lot of great games on the schedule this week. Another matchup of the 3-3s, this one starts tonight and goes all the way through until MNF. Did anyone else notice that the Baltimorons are now starting Baltimore's Defense? Crazy, right?

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss is no longer undefeated and he'll now face a tough test to not pick up a second loss. I know the Bolts just lost Big Ben for a month, but the matchups and OBJ's injury will make this one closer than you think. It's October's upset special.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Could this turn out to be our second tie of the year? It's going to be a good one, with games spread out from Sunday morning until Monday night. We'll have to watch to the end to find out who wins. Or who at least pays attention to their lineup.

Good luck this week.
