Week 12 Aftermath: Bite the Dust

Well it was only a matter of time before the inevitable: Simba's Buttkicker! (R Johnson) failed to make the playoffs. In five years of Brothers Keeper play he has now missed the playoffs four times. He is not alone however, as the reigning two-time champion Yer X-MOM (P Smith) and ThePuchin Munchkins (M Peltonen) also became casualties of the week 12 aftermath.

It wasn't a superior effort, but all three teams lost their chance to contend in the postseason. Points ON the Bench still has a chance. In fact, he will contend with Forever Tide in the upcoming week 13 matchup. Forever Tide, Rmmm's Golden Eagle, and MOTHERSHIP RUSH all have yet to clinch their playoff spot. While Points ON the Bench is one loss under the other three teams, it should be noted that MOTHERSHIP RUSH has fallen hard losing five of his last six matchups. One of these four teams will join one of the three teams already eliminated from the playoffs once week 13 is complete.

So which matchups are important this week? Put simply, the three matchups that all have playoff contenders playing. However, one of those three matchups has two contenders playing against one another: Points ON the Bench (5 - 7) v. Forever Tide (6 - 6). They will need to analyze their lineups two or three times before the start of each NFL game in week 13. It is deathly important.

So good luck and here's to the enjoyment of the final week of the regular season!
