ArenaFan Power Ranking: Week 18Mike Delrio, ArenaFan.com
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.Participation Trophies All Around!Brian Beaudry, ArenaFan.com
Hey, there’s a surprise at the bottom of the chart this week, as Spokane’s performance against Arizona was aided with a net recovery and they didn’t actually score on a particularly high percentage of drives. New Orleans, however, went WAY outside their typical performance and hung points on the Storm on every single drive.¬ The top three teams all fell thanks to losses (or near-losses). Jacksonville and Orlando rose. And Los Angeles is officially in the top half of the league’s teams in terms of play right now. Unfortunately for them, they’re very unlikely to make the playoffs.Amos, Fontenette, and Reid earn weekly honors
