Week 5 of the Alliance of American Football's (AAF) concludes with two games on Sunday. The first pits a pair of teams that finally got in the win column last week while the second will help break a three-way tie in the Western Conference standings.
So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for Sunday, March 10.
4 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network — Georgia State Stadium in Atlanta
Why You Should Watch: The good news for the Express and Legends is that they both finally got in the win column last week. Memphis beat San Diego 26-23 at home while Atlanta took down Arizona, 14-11 on the road. Victories aside, these two teams still have plenty of work to do as they have scored the fewest points of any through the first four weeks of the AAF season while also giving up the most points. The Express have been a different offense since Zach Mettenberger (73 percent completion rate 3 TDs, 0 INTs) took over at quarterback while the Legends got 308 total yards (254 passing) and, most importantly, no turnovers, from Aaron Murray last week. One of the keys may be which team runs the ball better. Memphis (145 rushing ypg allowed) has been the worst against the run thus far with Atlanta (134) not too far ahead.
8 p.m. ET on NFL Network — Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.
Why You Should Watch: The Commanders handed the Iron their first loss of the season last week, knocking them off 12-11 in Birmingham. San Antonio boasts the AAF's top rushing attack (152 ypg) but needs better production out of quarterback Logan Woodside, who has thrown five interceptions compared to just two touchdowns. The Hotshots fell at home 14-11 last week to the previously winless Legends. After scoring 38 points in the season opener, the Hotshots have managed a total of 26 in their last two games combined, both losses. The Commanders have given up the most passing yards (935) in the league thus far, but they also have racked up 14 sacks so Arizona QB John Wolford (league-best 8 TD passes) needs to be wary of San Antonio's pressure.
