3FL Notes: S13: Week 6 Preview

Last week saw both of our undefeated teams take a loss and both of our winless teams earn a victory. Perhaps some new streaks are set to begin. Also, the Lightning jumped up into the top spot in the league with another solid outing while the Dumbbums scored more than 100 points for the third time in our first five weeks.

The next two months should be very interesting.

Week 5 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Dumbbums - 103 points

Player MVPs:
Peyton Manning (QB/Den) - 36 points
San Francisco 49ers Defense - 21 points
T.Y. Hilton (WR/Ind) - 19 points

Week 6 Information

Thursday Night: New York Giants @ Chicago Bears
Sunday Night: Washington Redskins @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night: Indianapolis Colts @ San Diego Chargers
Bye Week: Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 6:

Renegades (-1) vs. Predacons
The Renegades picked up their first win last week and they are looking to double their W total against the Preds. With Coach Sinkerbeam's TE on IR and their Defense on a bye, that is the most likely scenario. Even before Philip Rivers takes the field on MNF.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
This game features our highest scoring team against our lowest scoring team, with the 'Bums posting 164 more points than the Stompers over our first five weeks. That's almost 33 more points per week. But we all know what can happen in the 3FL, even with Peyton Manning at the helm.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. THE Haw
The CAPS have scored more points than the Brew Crew this season, but somehow they are 1-4 while the Brewers are 4-1. There are players in this matchup in each time slot this week, but the most important will be the comeback led by Trent Richardson on MNF.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
We'll be treated to a dream QB matchup in this one. Rodgers vs. Brees is the highlight, but the Chair lacking a backup RB for a bye fill-in will be the decider. Can Chicago's D make up the difference? Probably not.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The 'Morons came alive last week for their highest point total and first win of the year. These two better pick up the pace if they want a shot at the postseason. We havefive teams at 1-4, so at least one of them will make the playoffs. That race starts now.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
This one would have been a better story if both of these teams didn't suffer their first loss last week. But still, it will be a great matchup to watch. Adrian Peterson is back for FitzCorp and with Vick injured they will be forced to start Romo (instead of leaving his 40 points on the bench). Advantage to the Corporation.

Good luck this week.
