The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 12:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Coach Thadtotti could use a win to sure up his playoff spot, but the Predacons have some soft matchups this week. It will be fun to watch, though, since the Lightning's management team will be in town for the weekend's games.

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss was perilously close to the team record for futility last week. His 11 points were second only to Coach Skrabby's 9 points in Season 3, Week 8. Meanwhile, the haw have flown under the radar this year and have already captured a playoff spot. How can I pick against them this week?

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Chair have tied a 3FL record with 11 wins this season. They have set the all-time winning streak record as well, getting a victory in 14 straight games (including last year's playoffs). The Vipers do have a shot, but it will be tough for them. Unless Coach Skrabby trades Larry Johnson for their backup kicker.

Misfits (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Misfits no longer have any wiggle room. They must win out and have some help from other teams or they will miss the playoffs for the first time since the External Consultant started consulting. With the loss of McNabb and Jordan for the season, things are going to be tough. But watching the Brew Crew add another Monday Night comeback against the 'Fitz would be excruciating.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The smack talk has already started between these two. This dim-witted matchup is going to be tight, and much of the outcome will be based on the Steelers' game. And whether LaDanian can continue carrying the rest of the 'Bums on his back.

And the game of the week...

Rough Riders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Although there are really five games that could be the game of the week (yes, they're going to be that good), this twin billing is not to be missed. There are so many intertwined matchups that it really could end up in a tie. The Renegades have had a tough year, though, so the Riders have the edge. Maybe.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week.
