So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for Sunday, March 17.
4 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network — Georgia State Stadium in Atlanta
Why You Should Watch: San Antonio is looking for a third straight road victory against an Atlanta team that has won two in a row after starting 0-3. The Commanders beat Arizona 29-25 last week and now have a chance of closing out their four-game road trip with three straight wins. San Antonio is led by Kenneth Farrow, who leads the AAF with 305 rushing yards on 78 carries (3.7 ypc). He'll get his chance against a Legends defense that has been the toughest against the pass (168.2 ypg) but has had some issues stopping the run (119.2). Atlanta has won two in a row and is coming off of its best offensive showing in last week's 23-20 home victory over Memphis. Aaron Murray threw for 306 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers and appears entrenched as the Legends' starting quarterback moving forward.
8 p.m. ET on NFL Network — SDCCU Stadium in San Diego
Why You Should Watch: Birmingham heads to the West Coast hoping to snap a two-game losing streak. The Iron fell at home last week to undefeated Orlando as the running game generated just 49 yards on 16 carries. Birmingham's defense also was torched by the Apollos for 486 yards, 182 of those coming on the ground. Keith Price replaced an ineffective Luis Perez at quarterback and he could get the start on Sunday. San Diego orchestrated a 13-point fourth-quarter comeback, beating Salt Lake 27-25 on Donny Hageman's 44-yard field goal as time expired. The victory put San Diego in a tie for first atop the Western Conference with San Antonio. The Fleet continue to get the job done by running the ball (124 rushing ypg) and a bend-don't-break defense that has recorded 15 sacks and eight interceptions.
