3FL Notes: S9: Week 14 (Quarterfinals) Preview

It came down to the final NFL game in our final week of the regular season, but the playoffs are now set. The Baltimorons used a MNF comeback victory to stamp their ticket to the postseason, while the Renegades scored over 100 points to leave no doubt that they were also in. The Spiked Vipers won their game and earned the 7th seed.

Three wins in a row wins it all!

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 13th. 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 or Friday Night NFL game.

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

#1 Stiletto Stompers vs. #8 Renegades
Coach Bev is the only member of her immediate family without her name etched upon the 3FL trophy. Is this the year? Or will the curse of the #1 seed stop the Stompers? The Renegades won this battle during Rivalry Week, but we all know that anything can happen in he playoffs. Both twins will be watching as Kurt Warner tries to finish a Renegades comeback on MNF.

#2 Misfits, Inc. vs. #7 Spiked Vipers
The 'Fitz have claimed that they're saving themselves for the postseason, and three straight losses to end the regular season seem to confirm that strategy. Meanwhile, the Vipers have won their last four and have been counting on a majority of the New Orleans Saints to lead their team to victory. These two 3FL East foes split their regular season matchups and they'll both have a chance to kickoff the week while watching one of their own on Thursday night. Go Steelers!

#3 Dumbbums vs. #6 Baltimorons
These two again. Father/son, division rivals, SuperBowl champions. But only one will advance. They each won a game against the other this season, but the 'Morons are heating up as they have won four straight to get to this point. It should be an instant classic. Can Coach Drew engineer another prime time comeback? Or will the 'Bums turn the tables while everyone stays up late on Monday night to end the football week?

#4 Predacons vs. #5 Lightning
The Lightning would actually be the higher seed if we weren't split into divisions, so an upset victory wouldn't exactly be an upset. It looks like it will come down to which players score for the Chargers on Sunday. And who gets the start at QB for the Bolts. And if any of their WRs score any points at all.

Good luck this week. The trophy awaits!
