DC Defenders Form

DC go into the regular season finale with an 8-1 record that has sealed homefield advantage for the playoffs.

The Defenders laid down an early marker as they reeled off three consecutive wins against North Division opponents to take control of the division.

They beat Seattle 22-18 and St Louis 34-28 at Audi Field, either side of an 18-6 win in bad conditions in Vegas.

DC then took a stranglehold of the North as they won 28-20 in St Louis in Week 5, but a fortnight later they gave the Battlehawks and Sea Dragons a glimmer of hope.

The Defenders saw their perfect run come to an end with a shock 34-33 defeat at previously winless Orlando.

They rebounded quickly though, downing Seattle 34-33 on the road before edging Arlington 28-26 in overtime at home.

San Antonio Brahmas Form

San Antonio take a 3-6 record into this game and know they must win and get a favor elsewhere for them to make the postseason.

The Brahmas were one of the more fancied teams coming into the season, but they never recovered from a rough start.

They blew a big lead in the final minutes to lose 18-15 at home to St Louis in their season-opener, and then went on to lose three of their next four games.

San Antonio kept their fading playoff hopes alive with a 15-9 victory at Arlington in Week 6 – their first win since beating Orlando on the road in Week 2.

The Brahmas failed to back it up though, as they then lost 26-12 in Vegas and 17-15 at home to Houston.

That left them in a must-win situation last weekend, and they go the victory they needed as they finally won at the Alamodome, beating Orlando 25-23.
