It seems like the league decided to take a break after week six's assault on the record books. Last week was our lowest scoring one by far and five games saw upset winners.

Another four NFL teams are on a bye this week so things should be interesting. Also be aware that there is ANOTHER game in London this week. Again at 9:30am EST on Sunday.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Finally! Le'Veon Bell is getting ready to...oh, nevermind. I'm sure that news story is getting old for the Renegades to hear. SpiVi does look strong this week but this one will be closer than it looks.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Preds have two losses so far this season and both came thanks to Kansas City prime time comebacks. Luckily the Chiefs don't have another night game until week 11. Also, the Marauders have an entire bench full of bye week players and Qs.

the HAW (-1) vs. Lightning
You guys, should we let the Bolts know that we're in the middle of the football season? That roster is kind of a mess, but at least Rishard Matthews finally signed with an NFL team!

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Speaking of roster issues, FitzCorp played last week with only six active players. That's just 66.6% of a full roster. But they still managed to win the game. They'll start an entire lineup this week against the Stompers, who have lost nine of their last ten. All of those Qs (and IRs) aren't helping.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
This is going to be a good one. But there are so many injuries between these two teams that the biggest questions will be around which players actually take the field. Do the 'Bums have another MNF comeback ready?

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brew Crew has won their last four in a row and last week they jumped up to the top spot in the league. But sustaining first place won't be easy, as PEP has some favorable matchups on the schedule in this one. And five Qs aren't good for the Brewers either.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week.
