Here we's SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#5 the HAW vs. #7 Spiked Vipers
Our 4x champion CAPS wouldn't have beat anyone last week, so they find themselves here despite having higher expectations and Tom Brady at the helm. SpiVi was half of the only consolation bracket tie in our history but they lost the tiebreaker because of a head-to-head season loss. Another loss here would send them into the 2017 season with a L4. Who wants to end up 8th the least?

For 5th Place:
#1 Marauders vs. #3 Phys. Ed. Phenoms
It was a case of "one week too late" for both of these teams. After terrible showings in the quarterfinals, these two would have tied at 87 last week. Now they get to play to win the consolation bracket. There is no prize for ending up in 5th, and it is a little sad to see how far down they'll end up. At least they'll both have a reason to watch MNF.

For 3rd Place:
#4 Baltimorons vs. #6 Dumbbums
The 'Morons couldn't quite make it to their 3rd SuperBowl in a row, running into the red hot Stompers and getting pedestrian numbers out of their star players. And the 'Bums were oh so close to knocking off the Corporation. Jonathan Stewart clawed them to within 2 points on Monday night. But it was not meant to be. So now we get a decent matchup for 3rd place. I'll bet that the 'Morons put up a ton of points (maybe enough to have won the SB without last week's clunker).

3FL SuperBowl XVI
#2 Misfits, Inc. vs. #8 Stiletto Stompers
No matter what happens we'll see a new name engraved on the championship trophy this year. This is FitzCorp's fourth time in the big game and it's the third appearance for the Stompers. Coach Bev ended up here after knocking off the #1 seed in the quarterfinals and then outscoring the league last week. The Corporation's arrival was more obvious - they put up more points this season than any team in history (and it should be noted that they have the most career points scored as well). They survived a down week and MNF nail-biter but they are in position as a heavy favorite in our 16th championship game.

One of them will finally bring home the trophy. Can FitzCorp's RBs run them to the title? Will Drew Brees direct another amazing upset? Will we even need to watch MNF to find out the winner? Only the games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday will have the answers. All we know is that someone will open an amazing present this weekend.

Merry Christmas and good luck this week!

Thanks to all for another fun season!!
