WEEK 5 PREVIEW

Another week where the previews will be a little light, although not as bad as last week -- this time we are actually taking a quick look at all the divisional matches. Let's get that under way:

First up, we have the AFC-leading Black And Blues Brothers looking to keep his rookie unbeaten streak going against AFC South opponent and 1-On-1 Super Bowl IX champion StuB. There's a chance that Black And Blues Brothers could have a three-match lead at the end of this one, which would be an amazing gap this early in the season.

The NFC East is wide open with a .500 record leading the pack, and there's a chance the division-leading Hyena could maintain his lead, or he could find himself in last place when the smoke clears this week. And while Bad Mice is currently in 4th place here, he could find himself atop the heap as well! This one is basically completely up for grabs at this point.

Both Delta Dawgs and Ignats were looking strong in the NFC North until they each faltered last week. Delta Dawgs is looking to come out ahead in his first divisional match, while Ignats is looking to avoid his third divisional loss in four weeks.

In the NFC West, both Heisendad and Green Bowl Tolkers are currently 1-3 with no divisional wins -- a pretty inauspicious start to the season. It's certainly too early to call any loss an elimination one, but whoever drops this week is going to be in a seriously deep hole and will have to start stringing together a lot of wins to keep up.

The top half of the NFC West is going head-to-head as well in a match that will determine who is in the driver's seat after this week. Evil Squad of Evil is currently in first, and a win here would give him a nice two-win cushion in the division. But Fighting Sporks is looking to put the kibosh on that idea, and pick himself up a win that would give these two even records and put Fighting Sporks in the lead via tiebreakers.

All right, make sure you get your Thursday pick submitted in time -- enjoy all!



Back in Week 2 we had an extreme rarity -- a game that was a difference in 14 of the 16 matches. That's not the case here, but it's close. That week was a Thursday night game as well, and this time the Rams/Seahawks game will have an impact on 13 of this week's 16 matches!

Check the Thursday pick chart to see if you're one of the six players with nothing on the line in this one.



The pick chart is updated with everyone's picks, and for the first time this season we have no specialty matches on the board. The action starts early tomorrow giving us about 14 hours straight of football action, so enjoy the games and check back late Sunday to see how things are shaping up. Good luck everyone!



WEEK 5 RESULTS

Thursday Night Football through 4:00 Sunday Games: More the half the field has wrapped up their matches in a generally high-score week. Closing out their opponents here were Fighting Sporks, Buttfumbler, Brenda's Bulldogs, Delta Dawgs, Vlad M, Louisville Islands, Alabama Slammers, Bad Mice, and JPP's Missing Fingers. Nice job everyone!

Three more matches can end tonight, and the rest will be decided by MNF. Take a look at the updated pick chart and check back in the morning to see how Sunday wraps up.



8:30 Game: Three more down as Pigskin Palookas, StuB, and Indiana Jems get the job done.



Monday Night Football: An insane nail-biter of a game ends with a Ravens win and the high-score pick taking the day, leading to the wins by Turf Toe, Rabid Ferrets, Lyle Alzado, and Heisendad. Awesome job all!

13-of-16 is generally considered a really good week, and this time is no exception -- we had a whopping five players put up exactly that kind of performance. But none of them are coming away with the Player of the Week award. That honor is going to rookie Delta Dawgs, who put up an amazing 14-of-16 performance this week!

So coming off of this week we Buttfumbler picking up a win which leaves no more unbeaten players; and Black And Blues Brothers with his first career loss meaning down to just two undefeateds. We're only a couple of weeks away from the first "If The Playoffs Began Today..." chart, so the state of the league for this year is really beginning to coalesce.

Next week will begin the bye week period, so from Week 6 through 14, there were be a handful of players not competing each week. You'll still be putting your picks in though, as your season pick total is an important tiebreaker for playoff positioning.

Ok, that'll about do it for another week around here. Check the finalized pick chart, see how you're looking in the Standings, and get a jump on your Week 6 pick submissions. Have a great week everyone!
