Monday Night: Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders

It's SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#1 Predacons vs. #3 Marauders
Well, this is disappointing. All the expectations for both of these teams at the end of the regular season have turned into a battle to not finish in eighth place. Will JuJu play? What happened Brees and Goff during the playoffs? It's going to be a great game, but does it really matter at this point?

For 5th Place:
#2 Yuengling Brewers vs. #5 the HAW
The Brew Crew returned to a respectable score one week too late. Now they have a chance to face the CAPS to win the consolation bracket and start next season on a two game winning streak. This should be a high scoring and competitive matchup. They even have the same number of Os and Qs.

For 3rd Place:
#7 Spiked Vipers vs. #8 Baltimorons
The luck ran out for both of our lowest seeds after turning the bracket upside down in the quarterfinals. That's OK for everyone else, as SpiVi is projected to put up the highest total this week. The 'Morons couldn't overcome their injuries to get a shot at a fifth title but the winner here will get a digital bronze trophy. So there's that.

3FL SuperBowl XVIII
#4 Lightning vs. #6 Dumbbums
Here we go! It's not the final that Vegas predicted, but it's going to be a good one. These two teams are evenly matched and they have players in every time slot of SuperBowl weekend. Coach Thad will try to win his second championship while Coach Coaldog is aiming to etch his name on the trophy for the third time. Yahoo! is projecting this to be the lowest scoring game of the week, so starting lineup decisions are going be important.

Can Big Ben lead the 'Bums to a win (and the Steelers to a playoff berth)? Will Julio Jones be healthy enough to play for the Bolts? It will all come down to a 3rd WR and a TE you've never heard of on MNF while Santa begins his deliveries.

Merry Christmas and good luck this week!

Thanks to all for another fun season!!
