AUSTIN ACOUSTIC | 4-1
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 | 5-1
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 | 3-3
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 | 3-2
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 | 2-2
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 | 2-2
Continuing to win ugly, Nashville is still alive for a Playoff berth. Simply beating Austin at home, will advance the Knights to their second-straight post-season appearance. The return of Nene Gleaves to the line-up and continued develop of Bre Mosley have had an impact.
DENVER DREAM | 0-4
Finished the season as perhaps the best winless team in LFL history. Certainly a lot of young talent that can be developed, the maturation of this franchise will have to start early in the off-season. First questions to be answered by ownership, is Marcus Juniel right fit at head coach and is Britney Perea truly a franchise Quarterback.
CHICAGO BLISS | 0-4
From first to worst, Chicago was expected to take a tumble in 2019 but the results have been horrific. Poor personnel use and a lack of commitment from the roster will probably lead to a complete overhaul in 2020.
