3FL Notes: S10: Week 8 Preview

Another tie! The Vipers were down 17 points going into MNF but clawed back for the tie with only 40 seconds remaining in the game (thanks to a Jon Kitna TD against the Brewers Defense).

Also this week, the two top scoring players in the league were sitting on a 3FL team's bench instead of contributing to a win. And the third was sitting on the waiver wire.

Bye Week: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, NY Giants, Philadelphia

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Someone will double their win total this week. The Marauders look good on paper (if they pencil in a starting QB) but are a defeat away from making it to the 3FL Records page with seven losses in a row. The Vipers earned another tie last week but are putting a lot of pressure on the Saints against the Steelers. Will they get a trick or a treat on Sunday night? (Sorry, I had to do it...)

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
It's possible that Tony Romo won't play again this season. Is Kyle Orton the answer for the Stompers? Only if he can figure out how they can outscore everyone in their division and still end up at the bottom of it. As for the Brewers, last week their bench outscored their starters by 16 points (and two bench players had none). Missing out on a Defense this week could be even worse. And change my vote.

The Comfy Chair (-1) vs. Lighting
This great matchup of two of the top scoring teams in the league won't disappoint. It has four (like you need any more) reasons to watch football on Halloween night. But you must stay up to watch on Monday night, too. The Chair will attempt to rearrange the score while the Bolts can only hope Peyton ate too many fun size candy bars.

ray ray haw (-2) vs. Baltimorons
Speaking of rearranging, the 'Morons need to do some. A lot, actually. Bye week issues, QB issues and injury issues have left their lineup in shambles for the time being. I'm sure things will look better by Sunday, but maybe not. The haw have a bunch of starters on a bye, too, but it's harder to notice.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Could this be our third tie of the year? The 'Bums have played well since the return of their suspended QB, but the Preds have been defying odds (and logic) for a majority of the season. The results will wait until Monday night when Matt Schaub tries to lead another comeback for Coach Sinkerbeam. It's starting to look like MNF is a pretty important game for the league this week...

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Renegades
It's the Eagles' bye week so you know what that means - an underpowered FitzCorp. But their waiver wire pick ups seem to fill in better than you might think. They'll be playing from behind on Monday night, but they'll have the slightest of edges because Team Renengaged (get it?) has their QB playing their own Defense. The final score will have to wait until November.

Birthday wishes go out to Coach Haw and Coach Jules this week. Their present is being favored by the Comm-nosticator in this weekend's games. :)

Happy Halloween! And good luck this week.
