Week 4 featured upsets that saw winless teams get on the board. The Orlando Apollos stand atop of the Eastern Conference which as a result of Week 4, just got far more competitive. The Western Conference is a mess with three teams tied in record. The AAF is a feast for crows with the playoff race looming.
#8. Atlanta Legends 1-3 –
They couldn’t be alone in being winless and made it happen against the Arizona Hotshots. Excellent game control and congrats on getting the league’s first safety.
#7. Salt Lake Stallions 1-3 -2
They let a team from Florida beat them in the snow. The Stallions did not hold together in the second half.
#6. Memphis Express 1-3 +1
Did their offense suck? Absolutely. But their defense played 4 quarters! Sometimes you just have to last long enough for your opponent to make mistakes. It worked for Winston Churchill and now Mike Singletary.
#5. Arizona Hotshots 2-2 -1
This team has lost what it had in Weeks 1 and 2. They were behind all game against the worst team.
#4. San Diego Fleet 2-2 -2
The Fleet were not out of the game until they decided to pull the fake punt stunt. The Memphis offense was performing poor in a game of field position, so they decide to fake a punt. It failed an they got the ball in field goal range. Beyond dumb.
#3. San Antonio Commanders 2-2 +3
Logan Woodside became a game manager whilst the defense returned to top form forcing turnovers that gave the offense scoring opportunities. Great win to end the losing streak and against an unbeaten team. Fro the future, they need less predictable goal line runs. Six run attempts stuffed at the one. Call an 89 end-around sweep instead of running to the same side.
#2. Birmingham Iron 3-1 +1
They faced their toughest opponent yet and Luis Perez and the offense stumbled against a struggling pass defense. Goal line stand was extremely impressive. Now they face the Apollos in our AAF Game of the Week. They advance in the rankings by default and certainly have the potential to be number one on the list.
#1. Orlando Apollos 4-0 –
On top and unbeaten. This team is so good, it’s won the attention of TBS.
