Semifinal Games
(Winners play in 3FL SuperBowl IX, losers play for 3rd Place)

#1 Stiletto Stompers vs. #4 Predacons
The Stompers avoided the curse last week - can they do it again? These teams look pretty evenly matched. In fact, they both scored in the mid-90's in their first round games. But will Peyton get much playing time on Thursday? Will Percy Harvin be recovered from his migranes? The Preds will be hoping for some more Sunday night playoff magic after the Stompers surge to an early advantage.

#3 Dumbbums vs. #7 Spiked Vipers
The 'Bums hold the trophy. The Vipers have never been to the big game. But this is a great matchup to decide who gets a SuperBowl birth. It's going to be crazy on the schedule, too. They will combine to start 11 players in prime time games, with 7 of those playing before Sunday. Anyone get the NFL Network?

Consolation Games
(Winners play for 5th Place, losers play for 7th)

#2 Misfits, Inc. vs #6 Baltimorons
The 'Fitz have fallen on hard times since being at the top of the standings just a few weeks ago. They have lost their last four and have averaged less than 46 points per game during that stretch. The 'Morons were headed in the opposite direction, winning their last four regular season games before scoring their lowest total of the season last week. Who wants it more?

#5 Lightning vs. #8 Renegades
Will Randy Moss quit on the Lightning? Will Kurt Warner bounce back against the Lions? Will we find out what Quinton Ganther is made of as he makes his first start for the Bolts on MNF? These two teams each deserved a better fate, but that's how it goes in the 3FL. The fight for fifth is on.

Good luck this week. The SuperBowl awaits!
