Andy Lopusnak,
Week Six was one of the most eventful weeks thus far. It offered the indoor football world the highest scoring game in league history and no team is winless or unbeaten any more. The stats software still has more bugs than any exterminator could handle and of course, the league hasn’t published a record book. This and more AFL information you’ll ever find anywhere awaits you in your Week Six fix…

This and more AFL information than anywhere else await you in this week's edition of Breaking it Down.

What better why to honor the pioneers and all-time greats of Arena Football than to do the same?

He caught five passes for 68 yards, with a touchdown from good ol’ quarterback Ben Bennett, and intercepted a familiar face; then Tampa Bay Storm quarterback Jay Gruden.
