Can you believe we're already halfway through our first 14 game season since 2003? We're averaging 424.5 more points per week than back then though.

Thankfully the only 6 team bye week of the year is now over. That was a little crazy.

Tom Brady (QB/TB/M) - 28 points
Tua Tagovailoa (QB/Mia/tH) - 27 points

Week 8 Information

Thursday Night: Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals
Sunday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings
Monday Night: New York Giants @ Kansas City Chiefs
Bye Week: Raiders, Ravens

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

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
This should be a really close battle and with a game in each time slot it will stretch across the entire week. The key will be 'Bums' starting lineup choices and if they can get out to a big lead with three players going tonight.

Marauders (-1) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Coach Hoss kept rolling last week, outscoring the league again and maintaining the top spot and highest point total for the season. It looks like this could be another W and 100+ point performance as every individual matchup favors the Marauders.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
These two teams come into this game with matching sub-.500 records. One will bring themselves back to even after this one, and the outcome will most likely be decided based on Saquon Barkley's status (and if the Preds have enough healthy RBs to play).

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Renegades
Mahomes and Kelce combined for 9 total points last week. And SpiVi still managed to score 116 and win. I don't want to think about what will happen if KC gets back on track this week, but it sure seems like the Renegades L-6 will soon be an L-7.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Did you know the Brew Crew is still two games up on the rest of our highest scoring division? They'll face off this week against the leader of the South but without Lamar Jackson or Josh Jacobs. That will definitely make things interesting. Especially if the Vikings get things going on Sunday Night.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Despite having only two NFL teams on a bye this week, these two still have a bench full of projected zeroes between them. The 'Morons have to keep track of some Qs but they should be able to return some starting players to their lineup who will tip the scales in their favor. Stick around for the prime time kicker battle.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week!
