3FL Notes: S6: Week 15 (Semifinals) Preview

None of the four first round games was even close; the average margin of victory (or defeat) was more than 27 points. That won't be the case this week, though. There are some great matchups scheduled and a spot in the 3FL SuperBowl is on the line!

Two things for this week:

1. Remember that all eight teams that qualified for the playoffs still have two games remaining. Teams that lost in Week 14 are still playing to decide places 5-8, so remember to keep a starting lineup for the remainder of the postseason.

2. There are games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday this week. Remember to have your starting lineups set for players in those games before they start.

Also, I have updated the 3FL Records to include the 2006 season. Regular season career statistics are also up to date in each coach's profile.

Week 14 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Spiked Vipers - 92 points

Player MVPs:
Drew Brees (QB/NO) - 37 points*
Maurice Jones-Drew (RB/Jac) - 26 points
LaDanian Tomlinson (RB/SD) - 23 points

* breaks the record for most individual player points in a playoff week

Semifinal Games
(Winners play in 3FL SuperBowl VI, Losers play for 3rd Place)

#1 The Comfy Chair vs. #5 Dumbbums
Even as the one seed, the Chair got through the first week of the playoffs unscathed. The 'Bums started big in the Thursday Night game and never gave up their lead. This matchup pits the top two RBs in the league against each other, and it's going to be a good one. Once again, Coach Coaldog's chances rest heavily on the Steelers game. But Coach Skrabby will have active players all four game days this week.

#2 Baltimorons vs. #6 Spiked Vipers
The Vipers lost to the 'Morons by a TD in week 11, but since then they have knocked off the #1, #4 and #3 teams in the league (in that order). Has the time come for Coach Googully to take down another giant? Or will Coach Drew get a shot at his second championship? It will all come down to Monday Night!

Consolation Games
(Winners play for 5th Place, Losers play for 7th)

#3 Predacons vs. #7 Lighting
These two teams are 1-1 against each other this year, with the Preds taking the week 1 victory and the Lighting getting the W in a high scoring affair in week 12. A big part of this one will be the RBs (and which ones can live up to their projected point totals). But the game will come down to QB vs. QB on MNF. Peyton against Carson for a chance at 5th place.

#4 ray ray haw vs. #8 Yuengling Brewers
The rivalry continues - this time in the consolation round of the playoffs. There are some interesting matchups to watch for each of these teams and the smack talk should be just as entertaining as the game. The haw will be looking to make a comeback, as they will have four players remaining after 4pm on Sunday, when the Brew Crew's last starter is finished.

Good luck this week!
