3FL Notes: S14: Week 9 Preview

The HAW continued their streak and we saw another divisional sweep (this time a Civil War reenactment of the North over the South). And the league topped itself again this year with a new 4th all-time weekly scoring total.

With six NFL teams on a bye this week it will be interesting to see who ends up in everyone's starting lineups.

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Lightning - 117 points

Player MVPs:
Tom Brady (QB/NE/L) - 37 points
Miami Dolphins Defense (tH) - 27 points
Arian Foster (RB/Hou/SS) - 26 points

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Cam Newton appears to be back in the board room, and his performance on Thursday night could make or break this one. The Preds have all of their players going at 1pm on Sunday and they'll have to just watch and hope again on MNF. For some reason that has worked more often than not this year.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The bolts came within two points of making the list of top weekly scores of all time. If only Sammy Watkins had waited five more yards to celebrate. Anyway, these two may have the same record but they are going in opposite directions. And they both continue those ways.

the HAW (-1) vs. Baltimorons
Coach HAW has now won 6 in a row and 15 of his last 16 in the regular season. You can go ahead and pencil in another one. Of course he gets the 'Morons when Aaron Rodgers in on a bye (and they have no backup yet on the roster). It's not going to be pretty.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Stompers finally broke out last week, scoring 95 points and posting the biggest blowout too. Don't expect those numbers again, as half of their players are on a bye and their backup QB doesn't even start for his NFL team anymore. Also, they're playing against Peyton Manning.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Edge to the Vipers since Tony Romo is hurt once again and both of the Brew Crew's staring RBs are on a bye. SpiVi is starting the Steelers D against the Ravens on Sunday night and the Brewers have 2 going on Monday, so this one is going to stretch out the week and make us wait to find out the winner.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
You'd think that scoring 92 points in a 3FL game would most likely earn you a victory, but Coach Hoss did just that last week and lost. By 25 points. Let's also mention the fact that Big Ben scored 46 points while sitting on the Marauders' bench. That would have been tied for second all-time if he was playing. But, be honest, he wouldn't have been in your starting lineup either. As for this game, it's going to come down to the wire in prime time. Should be a good one.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week.
