3FL Notes: S9: Week 16 (SuperBowl) Preview

The trophy is headed somewhere new! After a wild semifinals week our SuperBowl matchup is set - it's Stiletto Stompers vs. Spiked Vipers for the 3FL championship.

The Vipers completed an unbelievable MNF comeback to tie the 'Bums and win the tiebreaker by a single TD. The Stompers stormed out to an early week lead and did just enough to hold off the surging Predacons.

Who will be receiving a late Christmas present? We'll have to watch and see.

Week 16 Information

Friday Night: San Diego Chargers @ Tennessee Titans
Sunday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Redskins
Monday Night: Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears

Here we go...SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#2 Misfits vs. #5 Lightning
How did these two 8-5 teams end up here, fighting not to fall to the last possible ranking in the playoffs? FitzCorp has now lost five straight games and the Lightning have had their usual postseason luck. It's too bad - this is possibly the best matchup of the week.

For 5th Place:
#6 Baltimorons vs. #8 Renegades
Both teams come in with strong QBs and the top WR of the other team's QB. It looks like it may be a high scoring affair, but it will be close enough so that each team will have to watch Miles Austin close things out on Sunday night.

For 3rd Place:
#3 Dumbbums vs. #4 Predacons
One point. That's all that separated the 'Bums from a chance to defend the title and keep the trophy. Instead, they must play the Predacons to earn third place. It will all come down to the Vikings MNF performance, which is appropriate. Minnesota's week 15 debacle is partly why these two are here instead of playing in...

3FL SuperBowl IX
#1 Stiletto Stompers vs. #7 Spiked Vipers
Looks like this one will live up to the hype. Neither team has much experience in the big game (the Stompers lost in SB IV as the Rough Riders and this is the first Vipers' opportunity) so the trophy will be engraved with a new name. Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are the obvious story line - they have a combined NFL record of 27-1 this year. But don't be surprised is someone else rises up to take the title for his team.

Will the Stompers break the curse? Can the Vipers complete another incredible MNF comeback? Or is something even more amazing going to happen? It should be a great one - and the 3FL title awaits!

Happy Festivus, Merry Christmas and good luck this week.

Thanks to all for another fun season!
