NFC: Cliburn's Week Four Preview
By OIL Commissioner Justin C. Cliburn
Three weeks in, only one team remains unbeaten: Pyle's Lucky Enuf. Week three #1 team the Hangovers was knocked from its perch by defending champion SoonerJack. Meanwhile the Roughnecks and AMMODOGS fell to 0-3.
#4 SoonerJack vs. #3 Hard Targets
This is the NFC game of the week. Number three versus number four. The defending champion against 2015's regular-season champion. Look for Finch and the Hard Targets to knock off Bruesch en route to a 3-1 start.
#6 Arrogant Americans vs. #5 Dogs of War
This is a rematch of the 2013 OIL Bowl. If the season ended today, each team would make the playoffs. I'm expecting a big 'Mericans victory as Cobb's early-season luck runs out. 2-1 or not, I just don't see Cobb sustaining the level of luck he rode to his only OIL championship.
#7 Dirty Hippies vs. #2 Hangovers
The top-ranked Hangovers got trounced last week by Bruesch, and this week they're without their precious Packers, who are on a bye. Look for the Hippies to hand Duffy his second-straight loss.
#13 AMMODOGS vs. #1 Lucky Enuf
Rogers has been snake-bit so far this season. After two weeks, he had one of the highest point totals in the league . . . but sat at 0-2. Then he had a bad game and fell to 0-3. If anyone can upset number-one Lucky Enuf, it's Rogers. But I think Pyle wins his fourth straight here . . . especially after trading for Brandon Marshall.
#11 DominationStation vs. #10 Norman Nobodies
Fresh off his ass-kicking at the hands of Pyle, Jessen faces Leal's Norman Nobodies, who just notched their first win of the season. I'm predicting Leal to win this matchup of 1-2 teams. Jessen has a good squad, but he'll be in a deep hole at 1-3.
#12 DARC NARCS vs. #8 Whackers
Morgan fell from number two to number eight after disappointing in week three. He does get to play 1-2 Henderson in week four, though. Too bad both teams have so many players on bye. Call this one a toss-up.
#14 Roughnecks vs. #9 Dead Again
Yancy's new job prevented him from drafting his own team . . . and autopick was not kind to the Roughnecks. Schmidt's team isn't anything to write home about, but it'll be enough to knock Yancy to 0-4.
