AAF Week 7 Preview

4 to go in the Regular Season, working our way down the home stretch!

Saturday:
Orlando Apollos (5-1) at Atlanta Legends (2-4)at –2pm EST (TNT)

The Apollos squashed the Legends 40-6 on opening weekend, but both of these teams have come a long way.  Atlanta manufactured a winning streak a few weeks ago after dropping three straight, and Orlando was the last undefeated team before losing a nail-biter to Arizona last week.  Garrett Gilbert is far and away the Alliance’s most prolific passer (1625 yards), double the amount that Legends QB Aaron Murray has put up (813).

SchulzySays
Thinking this one is going to be a good deal closer than their first meeting.  Atlanta has gelled over the last few weeks, and Orlando has shown some cracks lately.  The question: how exposed are they?

Schulzy says: 30-17, Orlando

Salt Lake Stallions (2-4) at San Antonio Commanders (4-2) – 8pm EST (NFLN)

The Stallions and Commanders come together for the first time this season, they’ll meet again in Week 10.  San Antonio was downright electric last week, everything seemed to be going their way.  Logan Woodside threw two touchdowns (no picks) and got scores on the ground and special teams.  Salt Lake held Memphis to just 9 points, the first time they capped an opponent at a single digit score.

San Antonio has been on the road for four straight weeks and come home today.  They’ll look to show off their new found ability to put up big-time points.  Kenneth Farrow is pumped up about it, too, 340 yards rushing, 2nd in the Alliance.

Schulzy says: 26-23, San Antonio

Sunday:
San Diego Fleet (3-3) at Arizona Hotshots (3-3) – 4pm EST (CBSSN)

The Fleet fell for the first time at home last week while the Hotshots resumed their early season form.  Arizona did what no other team had done prior, taking down the undefeated Apollos.

San Diego took their first home L in Week 6, and are back on the road tomorrow where they’ve yet to win.  Huge Western Conference game here.

Schulzy says: 27-19, Arizona

Birmingham Iron (4-2) at Memphis Express (1-5)  – 8pm EST (NFLN)

The Apollos going down last week was pretty big news, but that story was overshadowed by Johnny Manziel’s signing to the Alliance.  He’s “adapting to the system quickly,” but it will be Brandon Silver starting for the Express on Sunday night after Zach Mettenberger went down last week.  The Iron picked it back up last week after taking a pair of games off from the win column.

SchulzySays4
With a lot of eyes on Memphis this week, the Iron move to 5-2.

Schulzy says: 30-11, Birmingham

Memphis Express – “I think he’s ready right now, just because he knows so much of our offense right now.” Johnny Manziel has quickly adapted to the Express system. 📰 | http://bit.ly/2Fm5G20 (Source: @aafexpress)

Upsets galore last week, teams getting it done when it matters most!  Great time for some of these teams to wake up, momentum is certainly your friend with so few games left.
