Week 4 of the Alliance of American Football's (AAF) season concludes with two games on Sunday, March 3. Similar to Saturday's slate, Sunday features one game with one of the league's remaining undefeated teams and another matchup with a team still looking to pick up their first victory of the season.
As the records indicate, we are starting to see some separation between the teams now that we are about a month into the season. So does that mean the undefeated Birmingham Iron will stay undefeated when they host the San Antonio Commanders at home? Or can the Atlanta Legends finally get into the win column on the road against the Arizona Hotshots?
So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for Sunday, March 3.
4 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network — Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala.
Why You Should Watch: The Iron have gotten off to a 3-0 start behind the AAF's stingiest defense (21 points allowed) and a grind-it-out type of offense. Trent Richardson leads the league in both carries (59) and rushing touchdowns (six) but he's averaging just 2.5 yards per attempt. Quarterback Luis Perez has yet to throw a touchdown pass but he's done a good job protecting the football (one INT). The defense has forced eight turnovers and registered seven sacks. The Commanders are in the midst of a three-game road trip that got off to a rough start with last week's 31-11 loss to San Diego. San Antonio leads the AAF in time of possession (33:44) but five interceptions by Logan Woodside have hurt their scoring chances. The Commanders are tops In sacks (13) but also have allowed the most passing yards (737).
8 p.m. ET on NFL Network — Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.
Why You Should Watch: To say the season has gotten off to a rough start for the Legends would be an understatement. They are last in the AAF in both scoring (30 points) and points allowed (92). The offense has struggled mightily as the quarterbacks have three times as many interceptions (seven) as touchdowns (two), and Atlanta is still looking for its first score on the ground. The defense hasn't had much success either as the Legends are getting gashed on the ground (133 ypg allowed) and have just three takeaways in as many games. The Hotshots will look to rebound at home after last week's road loss to Salt Lake. Arizona boasts the league's No. 2-ranked offense (73 points, 356 ypg) as John Wolford has already thrown seven touchdown passes, four of those to Rashad Ross. The defense has been solid against the pass (125 ypg) but could tighten up a bit against the run (119 ypg). However, the Hotshots appear to have a clear advantage in this matchup against an Atlanta team simply looking for some positive momentum.
