San Antonio Commanders v Atlanta Legends – Game Recap

It’s not often that you outgain your opponent on offense and lose by 31 points, but that’s exactly what happened in Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.

The San Antonio Commanders came into town and thrashed the Atlanta Legends 37-6, the second time this season Atlanta has lost by more than 30 points. The 10,619 fans in attendance went home disappointed, and the San Antonio Commanders return home for the first time in a month in first place.

Memphis Gets Manziel

The Memphis Express, fresh off their 22-9 loss to the Salt Lake Stallions, have announced the addition of former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel to their roster.

Nominal Express starter Zach Mettenberger was injured on the first play on Saturday, and Brandon Silvers did okay in relief. However, the team seems to feel that he is not the long-term solution (four more games for a 1-5 team). If Mettenberger has to miss extended playing time, the Express could turn to Manziel, not only to potentially boost their play on the field, but to also bring some fans to the games.

Alliance of American Football – Week 6 Preview

AAF Week 5 Schedule and Picks

It’s Week 6 in the Alliance!

Some questions we have entering this weekend’s action:

  • Can the Orlando Apollos be stopped? And will they clinch a playoff spot this weekend?
  • Attendance went up for the first time all season last week. Should we expect the same again?
  • Who is going to take control in the West?
  • Will any team decide that running the ball is a good way to move it? Or will we see another week dominated by passing?

With those questions and more, we’re excited for the first games of the second half of the season. Here’s a brief look at the four inter-conference matchups:

Europa League – Quarterfinal Draw

And then there were eight…

After an exciting (but mostly chalk) Round of 16, we have arrived at the Europa League quarterfinals. The draw – which placed the teams in quarterfinal and semifinal brackets – occurred earlier this morning in Switzerland. Restrictions as to who could play have been lifted, though we did have a scheduling change after the draw due to two London teams each being drawn as home clubs for the same leg.

Let’s take a quick look at the matchups and the favorites as they stand now. We’ll be back in April to preview the individual matchups more in-depth before the first leg kicks off on 11 April.
