Week 2 Information

Sunday Night: New York Giants @ Indianapolis Colts
Monday Night: New Orleans Saints @ San Francisco 49ers
Bye Week: None until week 4

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 2:

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Each of these teams had a disappointing start to the season. And both scored less than 40 points last week. Lots of E-A-G-L-E-S (and one former e-a-g-l-e) will be on the field to decide who starts out 0-2 in the division.

ray ray haw (-2) vs. Predacons
A 14 point underdog in the second week of the season? The haw outscored everyone in the first set of games and they have a chance to do it again. But Arian Foster and Tom Brady can't put up that many points two weeks in a row. Right?

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Ryan Grant is the first major casualty of the year, but the Renegades aren't in terrible shape without him. They'll put up points and then watch the 'Bums try to make a comeback with their four prime time players. Coach Coaldog's team scored only 28 points last week. When does Roethlisberger come back?

The Comfy Chair (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Chair somehow worked hard enough for a tie last week. That will have playoff ramifications down the road. Meanwhile, the Brewers leaned on first overall pick Chris Johnson to score a surprising victory. Is there another surprise ahead?

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Last week the Vipers ran off to a big lead on Thursday and had to watch the Chair come all the way back (although a tie wasn't confirmed until a stat update in the middle of the week). This week will be the opposite, with 8 of the 9 SpiVis playing in the Sunday or Monday night game. Interesting indeed.

And the game of the week...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Looks like the 3FL North is going to be quite strong this year. Any of its three teams would have beaten any other team from any other division in week one. The Lightning were unlucky in playing the week's top scorer, but they would have lost to one other team last week, too. The Marauders.

Good luck this week.
