Week 21 Games

Waffles vs. Moved Upton is the ESPN Game of the Week, and with only one round after this one, should go some way to deciding post-season aspirations. Upton are fifth, but there's only 3.5 points covering fourth and seventh, and the other teams in that zone have tough challenges - all told, six of the top seven are facing off this week, so things could change significantly by this time next Monday.
