Dallas Vigilantes (+5.5) @ Jacksonville Sharks
Friday, May 14th
7:35 ET Veterans Memorial Arena
Dallas Notes: This could be a real make or break week for the Vigilantes. Dallas is coming off of its most embarrassing loss of the season, a 70-59 defeat to the previously winless Orlando Predators. The wheels just fell apart in the second half for the Vigilantes, who were outscored 26-6 in the fourth quarter after trading scores the entire third quarter. QB Collin Drafts has completed a shade under 60 percent of his passes this year with 14 TDs against four picks. Considering the fact that Drafts has only played in three games though, the four INTs is really not great in this league. For a team that was slated to have the best defense in the league on paper, five turnovers in four games and allowing 62.3 points per game in three losses just isn't going to cut it.
Jacksonville Notes: It might've taken a tad bit of luck and some not-so-stellar officiating, but the Sharks used five Tampa Bay turnovers to walk out of the St. Pete Times Forum with a 46-43 victory. For HC Les Moss, his team is off to a 4-1 start to the year with two of those wins coming on the road. This will be the most interesting home task to date, as Dallas is most likely significantly better than a 1-3 record would indicate. For as long as QB Aaron Garcia is upright, the Sharks' offense has a very explosive side to it. Yes, throwing eight INTs is a sin in five games for the long-time AFL quarterback, but 28 touchdown passes is very solid. Keep an eye on WR Jomo Wilson, who has 39 catches for 418 yards and nine TDs on the season. The key to victory is a solid defense, though. Jacksonville has nine sacks, five picks, and seven recovered fumbles this year, and has held three of its five foes under 45 points.
The Final Word: Dallas is in a boatload of trouble on the road on Friday night. The Vigilantes are playing like a team that is disinterested week in and week out. On the contrary, Jacksonville is playing with a fire in its belly, and this seems like a road block that just won't be beaten. However, we're still going to play on Dallas for one more week out of sheer desperation. The way that Jacksonville plays football, a back and forth game that is ultimately decided by a score one way or the other is most likely in the cards. We think that home field advantage will still carry Jacksonville to a narrow victory, though.
Prediction: Jacksonville 52 – Dallas 50
