3FL Notes: S14: Week 13 Preview

Only one more playoff ticket was punched last week, so we're in for some drama this last week of the season. In addition to our six remaining postseason spots that are up for grabs there are still two division titles in question and multiple 3FL records that could be broken (both league and individual, both good and bad).

Stick around for the thrilling regular season conclusion!

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Predacons (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
This is our only game that is devoid of league-wide drama. The Stompers are already out and the Predacons are already into the playoffs. It's Coach Sinkerbeam's 13th postseason trip in 14 years. Regardless of the outcome of this game, Coach Bev needs to score at least 61 points to keep from adding her name to the list of lowest season total scores of all time.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Our last two SuperBowl champions meet this week to decide a lot of things. A playoff spot and possibly the North Division title are on the line. There is a chance that they will both make the postseason no matter the result, though. That's what scoring over 800 points in the first dozen weeks will do for you.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Renegades
FitzCorp pulled out a stunning victory last Monday night to jump up to the top of the 3FL North. There is, however, an outside chance that they could miss the playoffs. Everything would have to go wrong, but it could happen. As for the Renegades, they need a win here and for everything to go right.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Coach HAW held off a furious comeback attempt by the Bolts last week and secured the #1 seed in the process. But, is that a good thing? The Chair has the same record as four other teams but they are on the outside looking in right now. They need a win but they also need some luck with their RB situation.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Marauders are officially out of the postseason picture after their fifth loss in a row and seventh in the last eight games. Things haven't gone their way since Big Ben scored all of those points on the bench. The Brew Crew has the opposite problem - they had two of the top three scorers in the league last week (both of their QBs). I'll bet Coach Hoss would be ok ending the season with a W and knocking the Beermen out of the playoffs.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
The winner of this game wins the South Division and is guaranteed a playoff spot. The loser is probably also in but with a much lower seed. Coach Drew has added to their league leading point total and is within reach of earning a top five all-time season total (91 points), but I imagine that a win here would be enough for him.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
