Here we's SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#2 Marauders vs. #5 Predacons
These two teams will end up as our last two in the consolation bracket and for good reason. All Coach Hoss needed to do was start the kicker on his roster who is not on injured reserve and he'd instead be playing for 5th place. All the Predacons needed to do was make better start/bench decisions for pretty much the entire season. And to have not picked Jay Cutler. But here we are, vying to be the one not to lose three playoff games in a row. It will be a low scoring nail biter for almost nothing at all.

For 5th Place:
#1 Spiked Vipers vs. #3 Yuengling Brewers
Near the end of the regular season it looked like this might be the SuperBowl matchup. These teams were 1-2 in total points and looking like either might end up winning the trophy for a second time. But things have a way of working out a little differently here in the 3FL. Instead they'll play a great, high-flying matchup to see who wins the consolation bracket.

For 3rd Place:
#4 ray ray haw vs. #6 Baltimorons
Both of these teams had a terrible week 15 and so they end up here, trying to get a digital bronze trophy added to their Yahoo! fantasy profile. 36 and 44 points (respectively) in the semifinals won't get you a shot a the real trophy. But don't feel to bad for them. These two have a combined five 3FL championships. This game will feature the benching of two starting QBs and it will come down to the last NFL game of our playoffs to decide the victor, long after our SuperBowl is over.

3FL SuperBowl XII
#7 Lightning vs. #8 Misfits, Inc.
Well, this is interesting. Both of these 3FL South teams needed week 13 and a little luck to get into the playoffs - who would have thought that they'd end up here? We're guaranteed to have our third champion with a losing regular season record.

Coach Thadtotti's team is appearing in its first ever championship game while the Corporation has been here twice before. The Lightning won both head-to-head matchups this year, but only by a combined 10 points. It's going to be a great game to determine our 2012 champion. We'll start the festivities on Saturday night and things will be decided before the feats of strength on Festivus evening.

The Bolts are a little banged up but it looks like they're going to get LaSean McCoy back for the SuperBowl. Of course, they didn't need him last week as they cruised to victory with only 8 starting players. FitzCorp comes in as the projected favorite, but that hasn't been a good scenario for them in the past. Can Adrian Peterson continue his insane season? Which Matt Ryan will show up? And whose name will be forever etched upon the 3FL trophy? We've got one weekend to find out!

Happy Festivus, Merry Christmas and good luck this week.

Thanks to all for another fun season!
