3FL Notes: S20: Week 12 Preview

A tie! It was our first one of the season and makes the playoff picture a little more complicated. There are still three postseason spots remaining with only two weeks to go, and every team is still in contention.

We get a pause from the bye weeks to celebrate Thanksgiving but make sure to keep an eye on the already postponed Ravens/Steelers game.

It should be a fun week full of drama and turkey!

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
In the past three weeks the Preds beat the top two teams in the league and lost to the last place team. Now they face a Stompers team that is desperate for a win to keep a glimmer of playoff hope and be able to play in a meaningful game next week. It's going to come down to the stars performing to their expectations.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Dumbbums
There's very little drama here, unless you're watching to see if SpiVi can move one step closer to breaking the season scoring record. I mean, it's also a battle between our second and third place teams but they're mostly playing to shake out their final postseason seeding.

the HAW (-1) vs. Lightning
A tie put a pause on the CAPS' winning streak but they'll likely earn another W this week. The crazy thing is that the Bolts aren't mathematically eliminated from playoffs yet despite their luck/effort/attention this season.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Marauders
It is not safe to be a QB for the Renegades. They've had some really bad luck in that position this year, but a lot can be made up by having Dalvin Cook and DeAndre Hopkins on your team. The Marauders will hope from some good injury news this week, but both of these two could use a win to solidify their postseason resume.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
FitzCorp is still in our top spot and they control their own destiny as far as the #1 seed (and the curse) are concerned. Meanwhile, the Brew Crew has lost their last six straight and is clinging onto the final playoff spot with only two weeks to go in the regular season. Patrick Mahomes will keep this one interesting but everyone will be watching MNF to see how it turns out.

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The winner of this one still has a chance at the postseason. The loser is probably out of the running. It's looking like a barnburner in the making and it might come down to coaching personnel decisions. They'll both need a big start during today's early game but things won't be settled until Sunday night.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
