AUSTIN ACOUSTIC | 2-0
Coming off the franchise’s biggest win in history. Michelle Angel and Kassandra Bills have returned to form, while Austin’s No.1 ranked defense, are perhaps the unsung heroes accounting for the Acoustic’s rise to their first-ever No.1 ranking. Austin can clinch a Playoff spot and the No.1 seed, with a single win over its final two games.
SEATTLE MIST | 3-1
A season-ending injury to Alli Alberts has greatly changed the dominance of Seattle, impacting the team on both sides of the ball during its sole loss of the 2019 season to Austin. Having clinched a Playoff spot, Seattle now simply awaits and hopes for two losses by Austin, which would move Seattle back to its No.1 seed in the Playoffs.
LOS ANGELES TEMPTATION | 2-1
Despite injuries and off-the-field turmoil, this band of Pirates is over-achieving. The breakout star of 2019 season, has been running back Miriah Lopez and a one of the best defenses in the LFL. The return of TJ Anderson will be vital to LA.
ATLANTA STEAM | 2-1
An injury to Lauren Ziegler has Atlanta very vulnerable. It took a Ziegler-less Steam a heroic final-drive touchdown to beat a woeful Chicago Bliss. The silver lining has been the emergence of rookie running back Nicole Hulce and an improved defense. Atlanta can clinch a Playoff spot with a win over Omaha.
OMAHA HEART | 1-1
The highest ranking in franchise history, the Heart are for real with phenom rookie Quarterback Lauren Crouch and the addition of Ana Garza. This roster can test Atlanta for the 4th possible spot in the Playoffs.
NASHVILLE KNIGHTS | 1-1
Winning ugly over Denver, Nashville keeps its Playoff hopes alive. Second-year Quarterback Molly Richardson has kept this team relevant alongside running back Gabby Todd and wide receiver Bre Mosley. Winning out is best scenario for Nashville to gain a Playoff berth.
DENVER DREAM | 0-3
Perhaps the most impressive winless team, in LFL history. Back-up Quarterback Jessica Poole who looked impressive in spot duty for an injured Britney Perea regressed in her first-ever start. Eliminated from the Playoffs, Denver will finish its season in Omaha, hoping to capture the franchise’s first-ever win.
CHICAGO BLISS | 0-3
In their most hard-fought game of the year vs Atlanta, Chicago showed that it has the nucleus to build toward 2020. Eliminated from the Playoffs, Coach Sidney Lewis will need to start planning for an off-season that has to include recruiting a franchise Quarterback and overhauling a roster that has lacked commitment at practice, which has led to woeful results on the field.
