3FL Notes: S10: Week 12 Preview

You want parity? How about seven 3FL teams with exactly seven wins after eleven weeks of football. All three members of the 3FL West are 7-4. And all of the seven win teams have clinched a playoff spot.

We have two weeks of regular season matchups left to determine the last team to qualify for the postseason and to shake out the seedings. Let's start by watching a few Thursday afternoon games and eating some turkey...

Week 11 Recap

Week 12 Information

Thanksgiving Late: New Orleans Saints @ Dallas Cowboys
Thanksgiving Night: Cincinnati Bengals @ New York Jets
Sunday Night: San Diego Chargers @ Indianapolis Colts
Monday Night: San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
It's a shame that our current #1 vs. #2 bout looks to be so lopsided. The matchups are really favoring the haw this week, but don't be too excited. Tom Brady is listed as questionable for today's game. Hahahahahaha. Yeah, we'll see about that. Sorry, Chair. This one will look a lot more even in the playoffs.

Lightning (-1) vs. Marauders
I told you Coach Hoss wasn't going to let his record stop him from having a little spoiler fun. After nine winless weeks in a row the Marauders took out a little frustration on the 'Morons last week and they'll be gunning for another playoff bound team in this one. We'll know a lot more about this game after their combined six players go on turkey day.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds look to start off strong with one player in each of the Thanksgiving day games. But the Brew Crew needs a win here or they could be out of playoff contention. They are looking for a prime time comeback and they just might get one with two of their best playing under the lights.

Renegades (-1) vs. Dumbbums
Can the Renegades handle another week of crossing their fingers on Monday night? It seems like they have been on both sides of huge comebacks and near misses more than their fair share this year. This one should be over before then and they might even clinch the final postseason spot (with a Brewers loss), but I'm thinking that the 'Bums are ready to have a little MNF fun.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
What is going on with the 'Morons? One week they score 100 points and lead the league, and a few weeks later they score the lowest total in the league by more than 20 points. The Vipers may end up with a tie (for obvious reasons) but I'll bet they're going for the win against a divisional foe.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
What a game this will be. The victor will just about clinch our mirror division and get a top three slot in the playoffs. The Phi/Chi game on Sunday afternoon will likely tell the story, with two players from each side starting for the Eagles. But nothing is secure until FitzCorp plays their final two on Sunday night.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
