Week 7 kicks off with a pair of games on Saturday featuring both conference leaders
Week 7 of the Alliance of American Football's (AAF) season is here with two games on Saturday. The AAF will have to share the spotlight this weekend with the NCAA Tournament but offers a quartet of four intriguing intra-conference matchups for those looking for a break from the action on the hardwood.
Of particular interest on Saturday will be how the league's best team rebound after suffering its first loss of the season while the other matchup features the new leader in the other conference.
So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for Saturday, March 23.
2 p.m. ET on TNT — Georgia State Stadium (Atlanta)
Why You Should Watch: The Apollos may no longer be undefeated, losing last week to Arizona at home, but they are still clearly the best team in the AAF. The Eastern Conference leaders remain well ahead of the league in scoring offense (27.7 ppg) and rank second in points allowed (16.5 ppg). If anything, this is a chance to see how Steve Spurrier's team responds after a loss. The Legends saw their two-game winning streak come to a crashing halt last week, as they were thumped by San Antonio 37-6. Atlanta's season-long issues on offense continued as Aaron Murray threw three interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. The Apollos easily handled the Legends the first time these two teams met, winning 40-6 at home back in Week 1.
8 p.m. ET on NFL Network — Alamodome (San Antonio)
Why You Should Watch: The Commanders are the hottest team in the AAF right now, winners of three in a row, all coming on the road, and now find themselves in sole possession of first place in the Western Conference. San Antonio dominated all three phases of the game last week in a 37-6 demolition of Atlanta as Logan Woodside tossed two touchdown passes and the Commanders also got scores on a 79-yard punt return by Greg Ward Jr. as well as an 87-yard interception return by Derron Smith. The Stallions snapped a two-game losing streak with a 22-9 victory over Memphis. Karter Schult added to his league-leading sack total with two more (has seven total) and was named Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts.
