Mariners at Steel:
The Mariners leave the shores of Lake Michigan, and head to Breese-Stevens Field to face the expansion Dane County Steel.
With most expansion teams, very little is known about the Steel, which could be to their advantage. Unfortunately, they are facing the league’s most fearsome defense. The Mariners are dominant from the line to the secondary.
The key question: Can the Mariners offense consistently score enough to assist the other side of the ball? A great barometer for this will be a road game, which also is the first game in Steel history.
Braves at Timberjacks:
A week has elapsed since the Timberjacks were shut out by the Slayers. With that loss firmly behind them, they welcome the Dodge County Braves to town. The Braves put on a football clinic, manhandling the expansion Jaguars. Are they ready for the rushing onslaught that is T-Jacks Football?
M&M is not subtle with the game plan. The Braves should expect an extremely physical evening. This may be the Game of the Week.
With a win, the Braves solidify themselves as an early threat to make a playoff run. Similarly, with a loss, the Timberjacks will be in unfamiliar territory. As Week 2 games go, this one could set the tone for 2015.
Slayers at Wildcats:
This game can be summarized by questions: Can the Wildcats defense, led by 2014 tackle leader Tyler Bortle make enough plays to slow the explosive Slayer offense? Will the Slayer defense generate enough pressure to disrupt Wildcat QB Nate Samas? Samas will look to continue a fantastic 2014 (3:1 TD/INT ratio, and a 12.4 yards/pass attempt).
