And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Predacons outscored the league last week and overtook the 'Bums for the lead in the West. Now Coach Coaldog has a chance to leapfrog back into the top spot in the division with a head-to-head victory. It will be easier than you think, as the Preds have Marshawn Lynch and both of their QBs on a bye.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Sadly, the Renegades are the only team at this point to be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. But that doesn't mean they can't play spoiler in these last couple of weeks. This game will be close but Coach Val has a few too many red Qs to make a real run at RGIII and the Brew Crew.

THE Haw (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
Coach Haw is riding a six game winning streak and was able to grab a spot in the playoffs last week. A seventh straight victory shouldn't be far off, as the Chair is Quarterbackless this week and the CAPS have some really favorable matchups.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
SpiVi has been in a free fall for the past three weeks. They still have a stranglehold on the division, but they have yet to earn a win in the month of November. It's entirely possible that trend continues against Tom Brady and the 'Morons. On an unrelated note, can someone please change these gold starred helmets with their actual logos?

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Bolts are alone at the top of the league and have expanded their points lead to 25 with only two weeks left. That's quite a way to defend the trophy. FitzCorp may be able to qualify for the playoffs this week but it won't be because of a win. Not after having to watch the Brees/Graham connection on Thursday night.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Marauders are currently clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot, so they are the team that is most vulnerable to fall out of the postseason picture. Teams like the Stompers can start their final push with a targeted win here but it won't be easy. Alfred Morris will score just enough points on MNF to complete the comeback.

Good luck this week.
