Cliburn here filling in for Cordes. What a week! The lone undefeated team got walloped while the only 0-4 team put a whoopin' on Buehre. The FDC Chiefs moved to 3-2. Manager Stephen Pennington has won two straight since taking over for Hudson when the team was 1-2.
Of course, the biggest development was Nightmares RB Jamaal Charles tearing his ACL. Mitchell was number one in the league before the devastating injury sabotaged his chances in week five. Now at 4-1, the Nightmares are at a crossroads. It'll be interesting to see how he manages this. Week six previews after the jump.
Dirty Dogs vs. SECFOR Sixers
Cordes's Sixers just had their two-game winning streak broken by number-one Straily. Now they face a 3-2 Dirty Dogs team with a healthy Arian Foster. It looks like the Sixers fall to 2-4.
Nightmares vs. Boomtown Brawlers
The aforementioned Nightmares (sans Jamaal Charles) go on the road to face the Boomtown Brawlers. Brake's team needs to pick up a bye week replacement QB, but, if they do, they should win this one easily.
Team Tadlock vs. The Xtreme
The Xtreme just upset the Great Plains Drifters and now face an angry Team Tadlock fresh off another loss. Tadlock still has a great team, but it looks like he loses this one. Injuries and bye weeks are taking their toll on Team Tadlock.
Orangebloods vs. Preppers
VICTORY! McKay's Orangebloods finally won their first game in a rout. Now they get Gomez's Preppers on the road. I like McKay to win his second game in a row and improve to 2-4.
Enforcers vs. Mechanics
Straily's Enforcers are the number one team in the league. Pierre's Mechanics are . . . not the number one team in the league. At 1-4, Pierre really needs a victory here. I'd love to say Pierre turns it around, but I don't see them (or anyone else right now) getting in Straily's way.
FDC Chiefs vs. Great Plains Drifters
The Chiefs have won two in a row since Hudson was fired. Manager Stephen Pennington has done a great job stepping into a tough situation. But the Drifters have the second-most points in the entire OIL (42 teams). Pennington loses his first game this week.
Greasy Vandals vs. Blue Falcons
The Vandals are a surprise at 3-2, and the Falcons just upset the number one team in the league. Neither team has been consistent, so I'm going to call this one a toss-up
