3FL Notes: S7: Week 6 Preview

If you didn't stay up to watch the last 25 seconds of the Monday night game, shame on you until next September. It was an unbelievable ending and the source of two 3FL comebacks (and two near misses). Four of our six games ended up with five or less points separating the winner and loser.

Last week was also the fourth lowest scoring week in the history of the league.

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Lightning - 62 points

Player MVPs:

Tom Brady (QB/NE) - 23 points
Kris Brown (K/Hou) - 19 points
New England Patriots Defense - 19 points
San Diego Chargers Defense - 19 points

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 6:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Brew Crew only has to fill their roster with active players to climb to .500 this week, as the Preds still look like an infirmary ward. Todd Heap may be back this week, though. Woo hoo.

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The 'Fitz lucked out a last second win thanks to the Cowboys last week, and now they face the Vipers with Peyton Manning on a bye. Lucky again. But they are also the highest scoring team in the league...

Lightning (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
This just in: Drew Brees is getting benched this week even though he is not hurt and not on a bye. Can Derek Anderson lead the Chair over Tom Brady and the surging Lightning? Probably not with their RB situation as it is.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
Both of these teams will be led by second string QBs. Or no QB at all. We'll see what happens later in the week, but the 'Bums have the advantage of some favorable matchups and some paying attention.

Marauders (-1) vs. Renegades
The Renegades have 5 starters on a bye and their only available QB is out with broken ribs. And the Marauders can't possibly underperform again like they did last week.

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Coach Drew enters this game after an amazing Monday night comeback, while Coach haw clawed his way to within two points of one. This week is all about the matchups, though, and hoping that the haw isn't counting on Monday night for too much of anything.

Good luck this week.
