NFC: #2 SoonerJack vs. #1 Whackers
The only two 5-0 teams in the OIL meet this week as Bruesch travels to face Morgan in a battle of the 2008 and 2007 champions, respectively. Neither team is at full strength, thanks to injuries and byes, but they both will field above-average lineups. I am picking Morgan to move to 6-0 and one game closer to a first-round bye in the playoffs.
AFC: #2 Hooligans vs. #1 Warm Bodies
We have two #1 vs. #2 matchups this week, as the AFC boasts 4-1 Neely vs. 4-1 Nye. The final score in this one may not be befitting of such a matchup, as both squads are fighting the injury bug and bye weeks. I think Nye will outlast Neely though and remain at number one.
PFC: #5 Dirty Dogs vs. #4 FDC Chiefs
While it's not #1 vs. #2, this matchup should have big playoff implications. The two are evenly-matched at 3-2, with 2017 OPRs of 159.73 and 160.64, respectively. With that being the case, it's too close to call. But look for the winner of this one to seriously contend for a first-round bye in the playoffs.
