Week 6 Takeaways

San Diego’s 32-29 Loss to Birmingham

Mike Bercovici continued to be a roller coaster of emotions under center last week, completing 17-of-34 (50%) passes for 311 yards (9.1 Y/A) with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Things turned out the best for the offense when Bercovici targeted Dontez Ford, who converted his three receptions into 182 scoreless-yards before leaving the game early with an ankle injury.

The Fleet continue to utilize a committee backfield with Terrell Watson leading the way on early downs and short yardage situations before ceding way to Ja’Quan Gardner and Bishop Sankey.

Arizona’s 22-17 Win against Orlando

The Hotshots managed to prevent Steve Spurrier and Co. from sweeping the entire league — but it wasn’t easy.

Orlando finished with more first downs (27 vs. 23) and yards (369 vs. 341) while easily winning the penalty battle (7-for-79 vs. 12-for-142). The areas where the Hotshots did win were turnovers (0 vs. 2) and, most importantly, points.

John Wolford helped lead the Hotshots to success in both of those categories, completing 16-of-27 passes for 162 yards and a touchdown. Jhurell Pressley (13 carries), Tim Cook (11) and Justin Stockton (12) had double-digit carries, although Pressley continued to dominate snaps. The offense immediately welcomed back Richard Mullaney into starting 2-WR sets alongside star Rashad Ross.

Which team is healthier? Draw

The Fleet could be without their spark-plug receiver Dontez Ford, who was unable to practice Wednesday and remains in a walking boot. San Diego is otherwise believed to be approaching full health.

Arizona has a few more question marks to worry about, as studs Rashad Ross (shoulder) and running back Jhurell Pressley (wrist) were limited in practice to start the week. The good news is both have seemingly been playing through these injuries and are tentatively expected to suit up come game time.
