Now the difference between the first seed and missing the playoffs is only three games with six to go.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
QBs are an issue this week for both of these teams so things will look a little different than their usual lineups. And with at least 6 combined players in prime time games, everyone will have to stay up late to see who earns the victory to move closer to a playoff qualifying spot.

Marauders (-1) vs. Lightning
Our top team picked up their second loss of the season last week (by only 1 point) but it didn't have to be that way. The Marauders failed to start an active QB after Dak was ruled out late for week 8 with an injury. Josh Allen will post a big number for the Bolts this week but it doesn't look like they'll be able to keep up.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Derrick Henry's injury is a big blow to the great season the Brew Crew has put together. They also have some matchup issues and their top WR on a bye this week, opening the door for a Renegades upset. But that will only be possible if Christian McCaffrey is back and Coach Val checks her lineup before tonight's game starts.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
These two have the same record and their teams are just about even across the board this week (if Davante Adams returns to the field). But the only two RBs with scheduled games for the Corporation have red Qs beside their names. That will be something to keep an eye on.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The Preds were the only team to score more than 100 points last week but it's possible that both of these teams can pass the century mark here. It should be a close matchup throughout the week. Thursday night games haven't been great for the Predacons this year but they'll need a head start tonight and a solid QB and K performance on SNF to get a win.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
It's been a strange season for SpiVi in 2021. They've lost games they probably should have won, and they've won games when they scored half of their projected total for the week. Can Mahomes and Kelce get back on track this week? Or will the Stompers (and all their Cooks) pull an upset and leapfrog SpiVi in the standings?

Good luck this week.
