Our first three playoff spots have finally been claimed. How many more teams can qualify this week? Things are still very much in flux with only two weeks to go in the regular season.

There are four teams on a bye this week (and next), so it will be even more interesting for our divisional matchups.

Bye Week: Browns, Packers, Panthers, Titans

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

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
It looks like PEP is just about eliminated from the playoffs, even after their homestead victory last week. If everything goes their way it would still come down to points and there are just too many to make up. They can annoy the understaffed 'Morons this week though. Which will be even easier if Coach Drew doesn't look at his lineup before tonight's game.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Look away. This one could get ugly. The Marauders locked up the East with their victory last week and they're almost assured a win here in our first vs. last place matchup. But the big question is if they'll put up 55 points and break the season scoring record after only 13 weeks. I'd guess yes.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
The Brew Crew just keeps going. They're still tied with the Marauders for the best record in the league and can push their win total to double digits with a victory here. That would also extend the Bolts' losing streak to six games.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
If the numbers hold this one shouldn't really be very close. But we all know how those things usually end up. The Preds had a terrible showing last week (it doesn't help when you have 2 WRs and a TE that combine for 1 point), but they should be back on track for this one. Two stars play tonight and then we'll have to wait for a 'Bums prime time comeback.

Stiletto Stompers (-1) vs. Misfits, Inc.
With their win last week the Stompers clinched a playoff spot and are one game up atop the West. Things won't be as easy this week against FitzCorp and their quest to jump up into a postseason position. It's looking like a high scoring affair, as long as the right players make it into the starting lineups.

And the game of the week...

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
This is going to be a good one. The CAPS have outscored the league the last two weeks in a row and were the only team to go over 100 points in W12. Now they face a SpiVi team that is clinging to the 8th spot with two weeks left. The projections are just about even, but which Patrick Mahomes will show up? That could be the difference. Along with the other 7 combined players in prime time games.

Good luck this week!
