3FL Notes: S23: Week 17 (SuperBowl) Preview

There was not a whole lot of drama last week in any of the games as we marched toward the SuperBowl. No MNF comebacks were needed and the average margin of victory in our two championship bracket games was 32 points. But I don't expect the same thing this week.

There are games on Thursday night, Saturday night and Sunday night this week, so we'll know our league champion before the ball drops to usher in 2024. Make sure your team is ready!

Week 16 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: the HAW - 115 points

Player MVPs:
George Pickens (WR/Pit/M) - 31 points
Breece Hall (RB/NYJ/tH) - 30 points
Jordan Love (QB/GB/PEP) - 23 points
Puka Nacua (WR/LAR/B) - 23 points

Playoff Predictions Tally

Sunday Night: Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings

It's SuperBowl week in the 3FL!

For 7th Place:
#3 Predacons vs. #5 Renegades
Having Amari Cooper's 40 points on the bench last week added insult to injury for the Preds, but they were already in the consolation bracket. And perhaps the decision made sense before the game started? Either way they'll battle Coach Val to not finish last in the playoffs. It could honestly go either way.

For 5th Place:
#1 Yuengling Brewers vs. #2 the HAW
Hmm. This was supposed to be the week 17 matchup to see who would take home the championship. Instead it's to see who ends up fifth. What a shame that it is probably our best game of the week. Look for a barnburner that starts tonight and lights up the scoreboard.

For 3rd Place:
#7 Spiked Vipers vs. #8 Phys. Ed. Phenoms
After each suffered a disappointing (but not nail-biting) loss in the semis, our bottom two seeds play each other for the bronze digital trophy. It's not the result either was hoping for, but it's a definite jump up from being the last two teams to clinch just a couple weeks ago. PEP's Kicker has been ruled our for tonight. Perhaps SpiVi can loan them one since he kept two Kickers on his playoff roster?

3FL SuperBowl XXIII
#4 Marauders vs. #6 Baltimorons
This is quite an intriguing game. The Marauders come into the championship having scored the most points in this year's playoffs and they posted the biggest blowout in each of the past two weeks. The Baltimorons pulled off an exciting comeback for a single digit win and then eased through the semifinals by playing the lowest scoring team of the week. But we all know that anything can happen in any given week. As of this writing, the 'Morons are the favorites by more than a TD.

These two played each other back week five and the Baltimorons earned a victory to secure the tiebreaker here. Both of these coaches have multiple SuperBowl wins, with Coach Hoss earning two and Coach Drew having his name on the trophy a record-tying four times.

Will SuperBowl scoring records be broken again? Can Coach Drew earn one for the thumb? Maybe it will end up with a SNF FLEX comeback to win it all?? It all comes down to week 17!

Good luck this week!

Happy New Year and thanks to everyone for another great season!!
