3FL Notes: S21: Week 14 Preview

There is still one more week left in our first 14 game season since 2003, but all the playoff spots have been locked up. Actually, one of them is still technically in contention, but it would require a giant point differential so it's all but finalized.

We still have a few close matchups that will sort out the seedings and crown our remaining division champions. It should be a great finale!

Monday Night: Los Angeles Rams @ Arizona Cardinals
Bye Week: Colts, Dolphins, Eagles, Patriots

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 14:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
FitzCorp would have to win this game and score 191 more points than the losing Spiked Vipers to claim the last playoff spot available. So you're saying there's a chance? Well there's definitely the possibility of a (slight) upset here, as the Preds have their best player on a bye.

Baltimorons (-1) vs Renegades
Remember way back in early September when the Renegades were awarded the best draft after their go with the #1 pick? Well they currently have 4 players on the IR and another 4 on a bye this week. Their lineup is a microcosm of their whole season. Meanwhile the 'Morons are chugging along toward the postseason thanks to that tie.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Speaking of the tie, the 'Bums have also benefited from their half of that point in the standings. They've locked up a playoff spot but things are looking tough this week against the second place Stompers. Coach Bev can clinch the West Division with a win here, and it all begins when they combine to start 5 players in tonight's game.

Marauders (-1) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
I hope you stayed up for last week's MNF game. The Marauders completed an improbable comeback (more like an "outlast") against the last place Renegades to win by one point. They broke our single season scoring record as well, posting 24 more points than the current best in an equal 13 games. And they locked up the #1 seed and the East Division. So now there's just the curse...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Thanks to scoring a bunch of points this season, SpiVi has pretty much locked in our final postseason spot. It's a good thing too, because they have a losing record and haven't scored more than 75 points since week 10. But Mahomes & Kelce are bound to pick up their pace soon. Perhaps that starts here against the 10 loss Bolts.

And the game of the week...

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
There aren't any playoff spots up for grabs in our regular season finale, but that doesn't mean there won't be drama. The CAPS are on a roll and a win here would take the North Division title from the Brew Crew while leapfrogging them in the standings. The projections are favoring that outcome too. But you just never know.

Good luck this week!
