3FL Notes: S16: Week 14 (Quarterfinals) Preview

What a finale! Half of our games weren't decided until Monday night and five of our teams ended the year at 7-6. The top eight are the same as they were this time last week, but it took some drama to stay there.

Thanks to the new 1pt/10yds rule, ten teams scored more points this season than any other team in our history. And we shattered the yearly league total by nearly 3,000 points.

Remember that ROSTERS WILL LOCK AT 1pm THIS SUNDAY, December 11th. Under our playoff rules you will be allowed to make 1 add/drop per week once the postseason starts, but only teams still in the winners bracket will be eligible to make a move (with waivers set in reverse order of seeding).

Three wins in a row wins it all!!

Week 13 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: the HAW - 109 points

Player MVPs:

Week 14 Information

Sunday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants
Monday Night: Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots

The Comm-nosticator is finished for the year, but game previews are not...

#1 Marauders vs. #8 Stiletto Stompers
The Marauders were our clear top team for most of the season. They finished with double digit wins (three more than any other team) and were second in scoring. Now they face the eighth seeded Stompers, a team that lost their way into the playoffs and have scored 200 less points this season. But no matter. The curse has a way of evening things out. We'll all be watching on Monday night to see if the Ravens' D can score positive points and eek out a victory.

#2 Misfits, Inc. vs. #7 Spiked Vipers
FitzCorp limps into the playoffs after having lost their last three in a row and seeing their average point total drop below 100/week. The first of those losses was to the Vipers. Can it happen again? Probably not. The Corporation averaged 18+ more points per game than SpiVi this year and this margin of victory will probably be even more than that. The RBs will tell the tale.

#3 Phys. Ed. Phenoms vs. #6 Dumbbums
These two won their respective divisions this year and ended up with the same record. Of course more than half of our playoff teams are also 7-6. But anyway, this one favors PEP, who seemed to have learned a lesson about the curse last season. The biggest drama will be which middle-of-the-road QB the 'Bums will start. Things won't be final until MNF, but it will probably be pretty much decided before then.

#4 Baltimorons vs. #5 the HAW
These two have combined to win seven total SuperBowls (including the last two), so it's safe to say that the rest of the league is OK with having one of them knocked out before the semifinal round. Their records match and their point totals are just about even, so the outcome will be decided by the matchups and coaching decisions. Brady and Rodgers are no brainers, but what about the CAPS' WRs? And the 'Morons' RBs? And it will be another game that comes down to MNF.

Good luck in the playoffs! The trophy awaits!
