3FL Notes: S12: Week 8 Preview

What a finish! The Brewers clawed to a Monday night lead only to see it almost vaporize with 30 seconds left in the game. They were lucky to hold on for a 1 point win against the Chair (but I'm pretty sure that Coach Brew was asleep and unaware of the unfolding drama).

Meanwhile, the Stompers are continuing their slide in the wrong direction. Their losing streak has reached 8 (since week 13 of 2011) and they are now tied for 2nd place all time. A loss this week will match our worst streak ever.

Bye Week: Ravens, Bills, Bengals, Texans

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

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Brady vs. Rodgers. Two on Sunday night. Three on Monday night. Big scores and big thrills will take this one to the end of the week again for the Chair. It's really a toss up, but it will be fun to see what happens.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Predacons
As long as the 'Bums pick up some bye player fill-ins, they should be fine this week. The Preds can't seem to put their individual players' good weeks together at the same time. Plus, you know, Jay Cutler.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. THE Haw
Why am I picking the Bolts again? Well, the CAPs have their two best RBs on a bye this week. That should be just enough to let Coach ThadTotti sneak to a victory. Especially with Matt Ryan back in the lineup.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
This will be a fun one to watch and it has players spread from Thursday until Monday night. But it looks like the Stompers may end up at the top of the losing streak record list after it's all over. Blame it on the great waiver wire pickups of the Corporation.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
It's the battle of division leaders who have scored less than (or equal to) the rest of the teams in their divisions. The Marauders have been falling down the last couple of weeks after a torrid start to the season. I'm blaming Cam Newton. The 'Morons definitely have a chance this one (if they remember to hit the waiver wire before Sunday afternoon).

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
It should be a crazy matchup between our two top teams (and top two scorers). These two have combined to score over 1,000 points after our first seven weeks. It will all come down to Sunday night when a combined three Saints decide who ends up in the #1 spot with only five weeks left in the regular season.

Good luck this week.
