Week 3 Information

Thursday Night: Kansas City Chiefs @ Philadelphia Eagles
Sunday Night: Chicago Bears @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Monday Night: Oakland Raiders @ Denver Broncos
Bye Week: None until week 4

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

THE Haw (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Haw, like the Steelers, are winless after our first two weeks. It doesn't help when your QB scores negative points. That trend changes after this game, because the Preds can't play the lowest scoring team in the league every week.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Can Trent Richardson pick up the Colts offense quick enough to score any points this week? LeSean McCoy gets it started for Coach Brew on Thursday night but the Stompers counter with Denver's
Defense on MNF. It will be a close one.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Which 'Bums will show up? In week 1 they scored the most points in the history of the 3FL. Then in week 2 they scored the lowest point total in the entire league. The matchups don't favor the Bolts, but having Eric Decker on MNF might just be enough to hold on to a win.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Can I hold out judgement on this one until after Larry Fitzgerald's status for the game is announced? His availability could make or break this matchup. But so could the Bears Defense against the Steelers on Sunday night, unfortunately.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The battle of the M logos should be an even matchup. Vick and the Eagles against their former coach on Thursday night? That will be fun to watch. So will seeing if Coach Hoss can even up the North Division records.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The Vipers have looked solid so far this season, and that should continue. The Renegades bad luck seems to have carried over from last year. How long will it last? They need a win here, as 0-3 will make it very difficult to qualify for the playoffs. This will be a close one all the way through MNF.

Good luck this week.
