Week 2 of the AAF season concludes with two games on Sunday
Week 2 of the Alliance of American Football's (AAF) inaugural season concludes with two games on Sunday, Feb. 17. The two matchups pit a pair of teams looking to move to 2-0 on the young season while the other features two teams looking for better results after disappointing showins in their openers.
Sunday's action kicks off with the Orlando Apollos taking on the San Antonio Commanders. These two teams put forth two of the most impressive performances in Week 1 with the Apollos thumping the Atlanta Legends 40-6 while the Commanders took down the San Diego Fleet 15-6. The nightcap finds the Legends and Fleet facing off with both teams in search of their first AAF victory.
So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 16.

Why You Should Watch: Orlando put up 363 yards of offense and forced four turnovers as Steve Spurrier's team was impressive on both sides of the ball in demolishing Atlanta 40-6 last week. Garrett Gilbert threw two touchdown passes while Spurrier's offensive creativity was on full display with wide receiver Jalin Marshall throwing a touchdown pass as well. San Antonio wasn't as productive on offense, but the Commanders limited the Fleet to a pair of field goals in their 15-6 season-opening win over San Diego. San Antonio's defense made life miserable for Fleet quarterback Mike Bercovici, sacking him six times and intercepting him twice. Can the Commanders' defense corral the Apollos' offense?
Why You Should Watch: Atlanta and San Diego are still looking for their first touchdown of the season as both teams were limited to a pair of field goals in their season-opening losses. The Legends may make a change at quarterback as Matt Simms struggled, completing 15 of 28 passes for 126 yards with two interceptions. Aaron Murray wasn't much better in relief (4-for-7, INT) so it's possible head coach Kevin Coyle will give both their chance to lead the offense and go with the one who has more success. For the Fleet, the offensive line will have to do a better job of protecting Mike Bercovici, who was sacked six times last week, so head coach Mike Martz may try and run the ball more. San Diego averaged a healthy 6.2 yards per carry last week, but only had 16 rushing attempts.
