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

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Don't look now, but the 'Morons have outscored the league two weeks in a row (putting up 200+ during that time) and have jumped up into the final playoff spot for now. The Marauders have lost four straight but still have a glimmer of hope for the postseason. This is going to be a great one, all the way through MNF.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Stompers are the only team that is mathematically eliminated from the postseason at this point, but that doesn't mean they can't play the spoiler for the rest of the season. But SpiVi is set on keeping themselves at the top of the 3FL South and riding a winning streak into the playoffs. The matchups have the same idea.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The Preds managed to climb back up into second place with a win last week, but that doesn't mean that their postseason spot is secured. It (and the division title) could be, though, if they can manage to beat Matt Ryan and the Renegades. Can Jamaal Charles start things off on the right foot on Thursday night?

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Brew Crew is outside of the playoff picture right now, but they are in good shape to move up in the next couple of weeks. A win against the Chair would tie their records but let the Brewers leapfrog them in the standings. This is an even battle but the RBs look like the key. And waiting for the QBs in prime time.

And the games of the week...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. the HAW
This is going to be an amazing battle. The HAW may have lost two in a row (WHAAAT?) but we all know about their regular season streaks. And the Lightning are currently W-5, leading the league in scoring, and are at the top of the all-square 3FL North. Injuries may tip the balance so we'll just have to see who ends up on the field at game time.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Speaking of the tied North Division, its other two members face off in a matchup that will have playoff implications. Bye week fill-ins will be important (thank goodness these are the last byes of the year), but it is probably going to come down to one RB on Sunday Night to decide who jumps ahead in the rankings.

Good luck this week.
