Week 8 Information

Thursday Night: Washington Redskins @ Minnesota Vikings
Sunday Night: Green Bay Packers @ Kansas City Chiefs
Monday Night: Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Bye Week: Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys

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

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
With a win this week the Bolts will make it 14 in a row, tying our longest winning streak of all time. The Preds might have spoiled things if it was any other week. But with Lamar Jackson on a bye they'll have to just hit the waiver wire and cross their fingers.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Renegades
What. Was. That?? The Renegades went crazy last week, scoring a ton of points and watching their QB post the highest player total in almost four years. That's not likely to happen again this week. But you never know, right? Even if FitzCorp is favored by more than two touchdowns.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The QB matchup is a good one, but the best part of this battle is going to be the prime time ending. Can all of those Steelers push the 'Bumbs ahead? Or will the big projection advantage for the Brew Crew be true?

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
Both of these teams are 3-4 and right at the bottom edge of the playoff picture. But Coach Hoss' team has scored an average of 18 more points per week than PEP. They might not win by that many this week, but they definitely have a slight advantage in the matchups.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. the HAW
SpiVi remains our highest scoring team, averaging 104+ points per game. That's a TD per week more than our second highest scoring team. Those totals should continue this week against the hard luck HAW. Could anyone have guessed that they would be in 12th place with only a single win after the first two months of the season?

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Regardless of their records and places in the standings, this is going to be a great game. It's will all depend on which of the Qs turn into Os. Advantage goes to the Stompers since they actually have some players on the bench who can replace the starters on game day if necessary.

Good luck this week.
