Prediction Time… Eagles vs. Rattlers

October 19th, 2007 · No Comments

Tomorrow’s showdown with the Rattlers should prove to be one of the tougher games on the Eagles schedule. The Rattlers have rattled off three straight impressive victories over the Vipers (40-0), Miners (21-0), and Pirates (37-6). The only common opponents on the schedule are the Vipers (Eagles 39-0) and Buffaloes (Eagles 40-0; Rattlers 12-0). On paper, this is a tough one to call.

However, they don’t play games on paper. The Eagles are at full strength for the first time in several weeks with the return of Orem and Ingram. The Eagles defensive units have looked fearsome the past two weeks forcing turnovers galore in two consecutive shutout performances.

While I don’t think it will be easy, I think the Eagles will shake, rattle, and ultimately roll the Rattlers 26-12.

In other league action the Predators play host to the Diablos in a showdown that may determine a playoff seed for the victor. The Predators gave the Eagles the lone blemish on their otherwise perfect record and the Diablos come into the contest sporting a 5-1 record. Both teams took their lumps against the undefeated Rams each losing by 20+ points. In the end, I think the Predators take this one 20-6.
