It’ll be week 13 for the NFL season at that time, as the teams fight for final playoff spots.  Pivotal divisional games that week may play an important factor in playoff implications in games such as Panthers at Saints.  It’s pretty early in the NFL season at the moment, but in week 13, the Ram at Cardinals may also be a big time game.  David Johnson is currently on IR, and may play the story of a possible comeback for this game.  On Monday night, the Steelers are at Bengals, which matchup almost always forces playoff implications this late in the season.  In Las Vegas, the future home of the Oakland Raiders, there will be a heavier battle with more at stake.

According to accuweather.com, Las Vegas usually averages about 60 during the day and 40 degrees Fahrenheit at night in early December.  With the current weather pattern as of late, that may change, so Fury should expect to play in a lot colder temperatures than typical.   At the moment, they expect December 1st and 2nd to be highs of 64 degree and 40-42 for the lows.

Continuing on with the weekend, on December 2, 2017 will be game day.  Starting at 9AM will be the Women’s All-Star Game between Women’s East versus Women’s West All Stars.  Definitely a game to watch.  Go Girls!  The game follows with another All-Star Game between Texas-Cali All Stars versus Colorado All Stars at 12PM.  The MLFR National All Stars will play against the California All-Stars at 3PM.  We may find a few of our friends from PCFL in those two games.

The featured game of the weekend is set to kick off at 7:30PM.  Capital City Fury will play against Las Vegas Trojans for the 2017 MLFR National Championship.  It’s usually pretty dark at night time at around 7:30, so the temperature will fall quickly from 64 degrees.  In desert, the wind chill may not be of an issue, but Fury should prepare for everything in this championship game.  MLFR confirmed that they improved the playing field in response to Colorado’s reaction in an article with DFUSA.  The playing field will be at its grandest, and the stakes will be higher than ever for Fury.  It’s time to bring the FURY!
