3FL Notes: S9: Week 13 Preview

The Playoff Picture

Three playoff spots remain up for grabs as we enter the final week of the regular season. The Baltimorons, Spiked Vipers and ray ray haw are in if they win. But the 'Morons and haw play against each other this week, opening the door for the Renegades.

If Coach Val's team can win and total more season points than the loser of the 'Morons/haw, they will claim the last playoff spot. And to make it more fun all four of these teams are within 34 points of each other.

It should be an exciting week!

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Baltimorons - 97 points

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Fitz clinched a playoff spot long ago and have been on cruise control for the past few weeks. The Brew Crew needs to win and score 100 more points than the losing haw for a shot at the playoffs. That's not going to happen, especially with their starting RB on IR.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Both teams have qualified for postseason play, but a Lightning win here could gain them the divisional championship. Then again, a loss may see these two play each other again next week in the quarter-finals.

Stiletto Stompers (-1) vs. Marauders
The Heels are in. Coach Hoss is out. No one will be paying much attention to this game except for the Lightning. And to see if Coach Bev can go 4-0 in the division and maybe earn the top (cursed) seed in the playoffs.

And the games of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Renegades must win and get some help to avoid missing the playoffs for a second straight year. The easiest way would be with a haw loss (since Coach Val's team has already scored more points than they have), but there are multiple routes to the postseason. Of course, they all go through the arm of Kurt Warner. Will he even play? There are no other QBs on their bench!

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Vipers are Yahoo! underdogs in this one and they'd better watch out. The Renegades are only 9 points behind and a loss here just might end the season for SpiVi. And there is nothing the Chair would like more than to affect the playoff picture and vault a fellow 3FL West team to the postseason. Well, other than maybe some new upholstery for 2010.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. ray ray haw
Win and you're in. It's as simple as that. And it will all come down to Monday night! What a great way to end the regular season - a great divisional matchup to decide a spot in the playoffs. For the record, if it ends in a tie then they're both in...

Good luck this week!
