3FL Notes: S14: Week 7 Preview

The NFL saw its first tie of the season last week and we almost had one, too (until stat corrections). And the East division continued its string of dominance, finishing the trifecta and sweeping the South to run its three members' collective winning streak to 10 games.

Don't look now, but we're halfway through our regular season.

Week 6 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Yuengling Brewers - 83 points

Player MVPs:
Cam Newton (QB/Car/MI) - 26 points
Philip Rivers (QB/SD/SV) - 24 points
Aaron Rodgers (QB/GB/B) - 24 points

Note: Remember that only active players can be MVPs - 3 of the top 4 scorers in the league were sitting on a 3FL bench in week 6.

Bye Week: Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The rematch of our FMLB World Series happens this week but it's looking like it will have the opposite outcome. Tim-A's Tim-A's (seriously) held aloft our fantasy baseball trophy a few weeks ago, but with the bye week lining up for the Eagles the edge goes to the sneaky good Chair.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Stompers are having a tough go this season and have lost their last four in a row. Of course, the 'Morons aren't doing much better. But they have Aaron Rodgers. He may outscore Coach Bev's squad by himself.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Don't look now, but the HAW has lost exactly once in their last 14 regular season games. That goes all the way back to week 6 of last season (when their capital letters were the opposite of now). The 'Bums and Peyton Manning would like nothing more than to hand out a loss but it won't be easy. Sunday night's game looms large, but the Steelers on MNF could flip the script.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
It makes no sense, but the Preds are eleventh in scoring but 5-1 and second in the standings. The Marauders are second in scoring but are only .500 this year. The starting QBs may once again be the difference for Coach Hoss but the Predacons don't have to worry about that. There is only one choice with Nick Foles on a bye.

Lightning (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
After a rough start to the season the Brewers have climbed back to respectability, winning their last three in a row and outscoring everyone else during that time period. Things look like they'll cool back down against Tom Brady and the Bolts as they're up against some tough matchups.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
With a combined 5 P's, 4 Q's and 3 byes it won't be pretty, but this one looks like our most exciting battle this week. SpiVi seems to have the matchup edge but the Renegades are holding out hope that things aren't out of hand by the time Sunday Night Football rolls around. Of course that's past Coach Val's bedtime on a school night.

Good luck this week.
