3FL Notes: S17: Week 8 Preview

The ends continue to pull away in our league, as the top five teams won and the bottom three lost last week.

This week (and next) both have six NFL teams on a bye so things should get interesting. Also be aware that there is ANOTHER game in London this week. Again at 9:30am EST on Sunday. Someone in the NFL offices must like tea and scones, but we're sending them Cleveland this time.

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

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
We've got a lot of even matchups on the schedule this week. This one is going to be close, and it's also going to be important. SpiVi needs a win to have any hope of making the playoffs. Coach Hoss is ok with that not happening.

Stiletto Stompers (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
It's a little unfair to be third in scoring and eighth in the standings, but that's the situation the Stompers find themselves in. They get to play the Brew Crew (our lowest scoring team) this week. But everyone seems to have a good game against Coach Bev this year.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. the HAW
It's not easy to lose your top RB, QB and TE. But the CAPS can't even keep their replacement QB healthy (he's now on IR, too). Meanwhile the Bolts are flying high with Brady and Brown still racking up the points. Look out.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
PEP outscored the league two weeks in a row. Then they followed up those performances with their worst weekly score ever. So which Phenoms team shows up this week? This one might turn out to be the 'Bums' second tie.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
This heavyweight battle is going to live up to the hype. The 'Morons just keep winning but they have an entire bench worth of bye week players this week. FitzCorp just took over the points lead and only needs to replace a K. Plus the matchups favor the Corporation.

And the game of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds have a tough schedule during the last month of the regular season but they shouldn't look past this game. Their best player (TGII) is on a bye and Drew Brees can always make things interesting. Upset special of the month.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week.
