The Brewers finally won, the Stompers scored in the top five all-time, and the 'Morons completed a MNF comeback to secure a playoff spot and make things very interesting going into our final week of the regular season. We now have three teams vying for our last two postseason tickets (and two of them play against each other). We're in for quite a finale!

Week 13 Information

Thursday Night: Washington Redskins @ Dallas Cowboys
Sunday Night: Philadelphia Eagles @ Seattle Seahawks
Monday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals

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

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Both of these teams qualified for the postseason with their wins last week but the South Division is still up for grabs to the victor of this matchup. No matter what happens here the league should be on notice regarding the late surge of the Stompers. They lead the league in scoring and put up 126 last week.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The Bolts have secured the top seed no matter what happens this week. Not sure why you'd want to do that, but whatever. This should be a good matchup and both of these teams have more reasons than usual to watch the Steelers on Monday night.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Marauders
It looks like Big Ben will get the start this week in the Marauders' last game of the season. He scored 61 points while sitting on the bench during the last two losses that eliminated them from the playoffs (while Dak scored a combined -6 as the starting QB). Hindsight is 20/20. Meanwhile, PEP could use a win to head into next week with a little momentum.

Renegades (-1/2) vs Yuengling Brewers
The Brewers finally won last week, breaking their losing streak at eight games. That makes 3 wins in their last 20 games. There is no other drama here since both teams will miss the postseason, but maybe the Brew Crew can start next year on a two game winning streak? Or not.

And the games of the week...

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Preds missed the 3FL playoffs last year for only their second time ever and they aren't assured of returning this season. They're in with a win here or a SpiVi loss, or if they score 15 more points than the losing HAW. None of those things is a given. And we'll need to wait through Prime Time to figure it all out.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. the HAW
WOW. It has all come down to this! The winner of this game gets a spot in the postseason. If SpiVi loses they are out, but the CAPS can qualify with a loss if they score 15 more points than the losing Predacons. Actually Coach HAW can still win the division or be left out of the playoffs based on this week's results. Crazy!!

Good luck this week.
