We wrote a brief preview about all Week 7 games yesterday. However, just like we do every week, we’ll be writing a more in-depth look at the weekend’s game featuring our hometown team, the Salt Lake Stallions.
Both teams in this game are coming off wins last week, taking advantage of playing the two weaker teams in the Eastern Conference. The Salt Lake Stallions welcomed the Memphis Express to Salt Lake, and won fairly convincingly – though they struggled a bit after racing out to an early 16-0 lead. The San Antonio Commanders, on the other hand, dominated the Atlanta Legends on both sides of the ball in winning 37-6. The first matchup between these teams “kicks off” at 8:00pm EST (6:00pm MST) from San Antonio, and will be broadcast on NFL Network.
The Commanders have been on the road for the past month, winning three games in a row away from the Alamodome, the location of today’s game. But when they have been home this season, they’ve averaged over 28,000 fans in attendance, so playing three of their final four games at home could be enough to get them over the finish line. The Stallions, on the other hand, have not yet won on the road (0-3) this season, so the Alamodome might not be the friendliest location for their first road game of the season.
Here’s a look at how the teams stack up:
