Bye Week: Chiefs, Jaguars, Saints, Seahawks

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 5:

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Coach Hoss has yet to lose this year, but SpiVi is projected to win this one by 10 points despite being 10th in the standings. I don't doubt that the upset could happen. It's just that Cam Newton's concussion status probably won't be known before MNF, and if he's out there may be no replacement possibilities.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Renegades
The Brew Crew put up only 54 points last week after hitting the century mark the week before. Which team will show up here? Although it may not take much to beat the tough luck Renegades, as they have by far the lowest point total in the league.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The long awaited return of Tom Brady happens this week for the CAPS. He'll be angry and he gets to play the Browns, so it's not out of the question that Mr. Uggs will outscore the entire Preds team by himself.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
FitzCorp has lost two straight after their hot start, but they are still #1 in the league in scoring (averaging almost 100 points per week). They should get back on track this week as Matt Ryan finally gets to play because of Carson Palmer's injury.

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Lightning
The Bolts finally won one last week and muscled their way up to 11th place. But now they face the 'Bums (including bye week fill-in Carson Wentz), who are projected to score the highest total this week. Even if Gronk does get back to form with the return of Brady this could still be painful.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Phys Ed Phenoms
This is going to be a great game as both teams are evenly matched. The only question mark is whether PEP will be able to field a full complement of WRs, as bye weeks and injuries have piled up. Aaron Rodgers will try to take the win for the 'Morons on Sunday night. Who else would you rather have in that spot?

Good luck this week.
