SaberCats Dominate Historic Rival Rattlers To Clinch Home Field Advantage(8/1) Another chapter of the Arena Football League’s infamous western rivalry comes to a close, as the San Jose SaberCats defeat the three-time defending champion Arizona Rattlers 56-29 in a critical matchup just two weeks before the postseason is set to begin. While anything is certainly capable of happening in the playoffs, the SaberCats are now in a favorable spot after successfully clinching the number one seed in their conference for the first time since 2007,

AFL Quickplay Week 19—The End is Near!(7/31) Last week was one of the most unusual weeks in the history of the Arena Football League. One third of the teams were scheduled to be out on a bye when the league also cancelled the Las Vegas-New Orleans game and declared it a tie. It made for a bizarre week in Quickplay where successful teams had to put two players from the East Division into their lineups despite the fact none of them played in Week 18.

Rankings and Predictions: The Home Stretch(7/29) The Sharks savaged Tampa Bay and moved to the grownups table this week, entering just 0.02 points behind Philadelphia in the latest weighted rankings. Arizona also saw a nice uptick, and the Shock didn’t go up much, but jumped from 12th to ninth in the rankings.

ArenaFan Power Ranking: Week 19(7/28) Despite a light schedule in Week 18 of the Arena Football League schedule, the postseason lineup came into sharper focus with Jacksonville locking up an appearance in the American Conference while Spokane doing the same in the National Conference.

ArenaFan Power Ranking: Week 18(7/26) Arena Football League Week 17 saw four teams lose to teams ranked below them in the ArenaFan Power Ranking, including Philadelphia and Arizona, and top-ranked San Jose forced to overtime before beating Portland. The upsets didn’t result in changes in the top four spots in this week’s ranking, but did lead to changes in the 5 -11 positions.
