The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
These two are just jockeying for playoff seeding, so there's not too much drama here. Except for the McNabb injury report. And Tony Romo on Thursday night.

Lightning (-1) vs. Predacons
The Preds are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet. They do, however, need a plethora of things to occur in order to claim the 8th spot. First, they must win this week against the top scoring (and most likely record-breaking) Lightning. And the Chair and the Brewers must both lose. And they must score 26 points more than the losing haw or 24 points more than the losing 'Bums. Then they must part the Red Sea and get gasoline prices under $2.50. I doubt they'll even get past the first one.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Vipers have pretty much sured up a playoff spot. A win against Coach Hoss and they're definitely in. But you just never know in the 3FL - a loss this week in conjunction with big wins from three other contenders could drop the bottom out of Peyton and the snakes. I wouldn't count on it, though.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Can you believe it? The surging Chair still has a chance at the postseason. They first need a win against the low-scoring Renegades, and then they need a Brewers loss (or to score 35 more points than the winning Brewers) or a GotW tie. And you thought the addition of Brian St. Pierre was Coach Skrabby waving a white flag...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
While the Saskatchewan Roughriders just won the CFL, our Rough Riders are the only team to already be officially eliminated from playoff contention. But they can force the Brew Crew to join them on the outside with an upset win this week. With a win and a maintained point total, though, Coach Brew has the fast track to another playoff run. Can either of these two stay up to watch the important Sunday Night Football game?

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
These teams have the same record and only a safety separates their total points scored over the first 12 weeks. But none of that matters now. The team that wins is in. The team that loses needs the Chair and the Brewers (and maybe the Predacons) all to lose. And a tie might just bring down both teams. What a great matchup for a playoff berth. Fantasy football doesn't get any better than this!

Good luck this week.
