3FL Notes: S8: Week 14 (Quarterfinals) Preview

One point. That's all that separated the Renegades from a chance to defend their title. But the Lightning held on for a tie in the waning seconds on Monday night and punched their own ticket to the playoffs instead. Also, congratulations to the Brewers, Marauders, Dumbbums and Misfits, Inc. for earning a spot in the postseason.

There are two things to remember:

First, everyone who qualified for the playoffs will play in each of the next three weeks. Make sure you have a lineup set from now through the end of week 16.

Second, and more importantly, ROSTERS WILL LOCK AT 12:55pm THIS SUNDAY, December 7th. You will not be able to add/drop after this time. Make sure your team is ready for the playoffs before then.

And don't forget that all remaining weeks start with a Thursday Night NFL game.

Also, all individual team pages and the 3FL Records have been updated and show statistics through the end of the 2008 regular season.

The Comm-nosticator is finished for the year, but game previews are not...

#1 Predacons vs. #8 Dumbbums
Here comes the curse. For all of the Preds efforts they are rewarded for their first place regular season finish with a game against the hottest team in the league. The 'Bums are peaking at the right time, scoring more points in the last two weeks than any other 3FL team. 35 more points, actually. It will be close enough for fun, but the #1 seed is an underdog for a reason...

#2 Baltimorons vs. #7 Lightning
Just enough. That's how much the Lightning did to make it to this game. And after last week's tie, these two get to play each other again. It's kind of like a continuation of that game in overtime. Of course, in the playoffs there are no ties - total TDs scored by the entire starting roster is the first tiebreaker. We may need it.

#3 Spiked Vipers vs. #6 Marauders
In week four SpiVi won this matchup by two points and the rematch should be just as close. The Marauders' RBs should rack up the points this week, but how is Big Ben's knee? Kurt Warner should also score a bunch, but how many of his TDs will go to Larry Fitzgerald in a Marauders uniform? It should be a good one.

#4 Misfits, Inc. vs. #5 Yuengling Brewers
Now that they have officially qualified for the postseason, FitzCorp will most likely be favored to win every playoff game. Of course we all know what can happen despite the projections of the folks at Yahoo! We'll have to see who gets the start at QB for both teams to have a better idea of how things will turn out. The best two just might be sitting on their respective benches...

Good luck this week. Three wins in a row wins it all!
