ajor League Football is drawing tens of thousands at the stadium each time two of the teams go head to head, with millions watching the game at home. The IFL is yet to gain that kind of popularity, but indoor football is already one of the favorite pastime for Americans and some teams are truly worth watching. Minor League Football is coming strongly from behind and with games such as Nebraska Danger vs Colorado Ice, it is only natural to expect more fans to flock to the stadiums.
The two teams met last week in what can easily be described as a potential IFL game of the year, although there are plenty of rounds left and interesting matches scheduled. Nebraska Danger is widely regarded as one of the best teams in the league and definitely the most in-form one, while their opponents are famous for being an excellent traveling team. The game was decided by Joe Houston who clinched the win in the final seconds of the game and propelled his team to the top of the standings.
There is a growing rivalry between these two teams, which means that this victory that grants Nebraska a 2-1 lead in the series will weigh heavily in the balance. After celebrating the important victory, the Danger will need to get ready for another tough confrontation against Sioux Falls. The Storm are known as a stringy team at home and it is most unlikely for the hosts will be even remotely intimidated by the dazzling offensive performance recently displayed by Nebraska.
Elsewhere, the IFL scheduled other breathtaking games, with the confrontation between Sioux Falls Storm and Chicago Slaughter being among the highlights of the week. It was Chicago who prevailed and QB Cody Kirby was the player who deserves all the credit in that particular game and in most of the six preceding matches. The Slaughter won 6 out 7 recent games and is one of the best teams with eight forced fumbles 18 interceptions and six defensive touchdowns. Chicago will try to replicate their Week 5 performance this week, when they meet the Revolution in Texas after defeating them by 51 to 26 at home.
After the disheartening defeat Nebraska, the Colorado Ice get ready for another tough encounter with the Wyoming Cavalry. This time they won’t have home pitch advantage and they will need Matthew Roark, Justin Helwege and Willie Copeland to play their best football. The latter does exactly that and ranks among the best passers in the league while retaining the crown for the most passing touchdowns. The other sore losers, the Storm, are trying to stay afloat in the highly competitive division but they need to improve their turnover number.
