Week 13 Information

Sunday Night: Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night: New York Giants @ Washington Redskins

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Not too much drama here. The Stompers are out while the Marauders are in and have clinched the division. But that doesn't mean that Coach Bev can't run up another score to end the season. We've seen it before.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Renegades
It's a shame that what looks to be out best matchup of the week is just about meaningless. Sure, the Renegades would like to end the season with a couple of wins before they regroup for next year, and the Bolts don't have a playoff spot shored up just yet - but with the points total they have scored already we can pencil them in.

And the games of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. THE Haw
SpiVi has already clinched the #1 seed (for better or worse) but I don't think they're going to rest before the postseason. They have a chance to possibly knock their division rival (and father) out of the playoffs. But more importantly, 65 points will put them on the list of top season scorers of all time (and 99 points will put them at the top of that list). It couldn't be a tougher matchup for the CAPs - having to face our top scorer while riding a three game skid isn't ideal. Prime time will seal Coach Haw's 2012 fate.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
What a great divisional matchup this will be. The 'Bums need a win for a chance to play next week but they also need some help. Outscoring the whole league for a second straight week couldn't hurt that cause. The Chair is in with a win, but probably also in with a loss. But would you rely on a "probably" with the way things have a way of going in this league?

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
It has been a disappointing season thus far for FitzCorp, but that could all change this week. First they need a win against the North Division champ Brew Crew and some help from across the league to get into the playoffs. After that anything is possible. We'll all have to wait for the Beermen's RGIII on Monday night to see if the Corporation's season continues.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
It all comes down to this for the 3FL South division title. The 'Morons have been on top all year, but the Preds can leapfrog them with a win this week. Not only that, Coach Sinkerbeam will earn a playoff spot with a win, but might be left out of the postseason for only the second time in our league's history with a loss. It would help if he made at least one right decision on which players to start/bench. It's going to be a good one!

Good luck this week!
