Steel Reign pulled out a 12-point victory against my beloved Sawtooths after Sawtooths QB Andy Dalton broke his thumb, scoring a mere 0.95 points. As a result, it was a close game and ultimately went down to the MNF Game between the Giants and Dolphins. The Rebel Alliance ran through Lynn's Brewmasters and put up a week-high 196.45 points. Great job and congratulations to those who advanced to the next round.

And it was Bruesch who punched his ticket to the semifinals first, blowing out Pyle by roughly 40 points. Things were a bit more suspenseful for Henderson, as he beat Rogers by less than a point. But, unlike in most things, in fantasy football, it's not the journey; it's the destination.
Well PFC members, we have now entered the playoffs for the first time in history of this league. If your team didn't make the playoffs this year, don't worry; there is always next season [Editor's Note: My Arrogant Americans team, the most successful in the OIL, didn't make the playoffs until our third season, so don't feel bad].
Unfortunately, my SECFOR Sixers will not be moving on any further this season. However, I had a blast writing preview posts, researching players, and setting lineups so I could keep some kind of connection with my military brothers.

Again, thanks for your participation, and those that didn't make the playoffs, pick a team and cheer them on till the end. Now, let us look at those teams that have made it to the playoffs.
