Game of the Week: Nashville Tuts at Las Vegas Bandits

Our Expert Predictions:

Jeremy Piper : Las Vegas Bandits
I have to think the leadership in the locker room and on the field, and here I am thinking of players like Markus Nash - G, Zackary Brock - T and Rodolfo Paulson - SS is what will make the difference in this game.

Mary Moore : Nashville Tuts
I know they lost their last game, but they will get the W this week. Get your popcorn ready.

Jim Nox : Nashville Tuts
Head coach Bobby Verde runs a tight ship in Nashville. I feel certain he has prepared an excellent gameplan. He is innovative with his defense. A close win.

Darren Francis : Las Vegas Bandits
You got to like this offense. They are 5th in the league pass completion percentage. They are 4th in the league passing touchdowns with 9. They are maulers, 3rd in the league in pancakes. They are 2nd in the league average yards per rush. They are 5th in the league rushing touchdowns with 4. They are 2nd in the league rushing yards per game. They average 144.6!

Game of the Week: New York Defiant at Nashville Tuts

Our Expert Predictions:

Jeremy Piper : New York Defiant
I see them winning again this week, and it will be good for them to put that loss in their last game behind them. They greatly outscore them here.

Mary Moore : Nashville Tuts
They field one of the most underestimated offenses. They are 3rd in the league pass completion percentage. They are 1st in the league in sacks allowed. They are 3rd in the league points scored per game. They average 25!

Jim Nox : Nashville Tuts
I really think their defense will make the difference. They are 2nd in points allowed, averaging only 16.3. They are 5th in run defense. Giving up only 94.3 yards per game. It may even be a blow out.

Darren Francis : New York Defiant

Our Expert Predictions:

Jeremy Piper : Nashville Tuts
People tend to underestimate their defense. They are 5th in points allowed, averaging only 16.5. They are 3rd in pass defense. They only give up 191.5 per game. This may be a pivotal game for their season.

Mary Moore : Nashville Tuts
The Tuts win. I see no reason to think otherwise. There will be a lot to dissect after this game.

Jim Nox : New York Defiant
Team play. Playing as a unit. You cannot discount the difference it makes. I am thinking of a guy like Desmond Widmore - WR. Playing as a team is what gets them the win. It may come down to the wire though.

Darren Francis : Nashville Tuts
When you think of the players that will be on the field, I am certain that Horacio Cabrera - CB will be a key figure in this game. Do not sleep on this guy's ability.

Game of the Week: Baltimore Ponies at Colorado Crushers

Our Expert Predictions:

Jeremy Piper : Baltimore Ponies
This week, the Ponies will count on the leadership of Maqui Jelani - LB and Antoine Tardif - WR to get the win. It is leadership skills like that you need for these tough games.

Mary Moore : Baltimore Ponies
I really like their offense.

Jim Nox : Colorado Crushers
The difference in this game will be their defense.

Darren Francis : Colorado Crushers
Looking at how the teams match up, I think that Tryggr Lang - FS has to potential to carry the Crushers defense. Really this could go either way, but you will never get me to admit it.

Reuyters a Renegades legend

The Renegades' front office has announced that Olen Reuyters - WR is among the favorites in his generation for the future hall of fame. Clearly, after 7 seasons in the league, playing at his level, it is hard to dispute. Hall of fame or not, Reuyters is a legend, not only in North Florida, but nationally. The Renegades have made no comment on the subject before, but seem fairly satisfied with the whole thing.

They will get another win this week. A double digit win.

Mary Moore : Montreal Royal

Jim Nox : Montreal Royal
I love what they are doing in Montreal coaching-wise. Head coach Matthew Machiocha is a major reason they will win this game. Offensively he is a great and innovative thinker.

Darren Francis : Nashville Tuts
In this game, everything points to that you have to focus on this CB named Horacio Cabrera. I expect everyone knows this guy will be a wrecking ball. I am really on the fence for this one, but I stand my prediction.
