Football season is back, and that means so are the Games of the Week. It's only Week Two, but we're already blessed with two #1 vs. #2 matchups. To the games!
#1 vs. #2. First Platoon vs. First Platoon. Bird vs. Bird. Marlow vs. Comanche. We couldn't ask for a better matchup in Week Two. Look for the Cocks pull out a close win to remain on top at least one more week.
Aside from the DARC NARCS' second-place finish in 2015, these two teams aren't used being near the top. But here they are. Look for Henderson to knock off the top-ranked Roughnecks, but there's plenty of football left to be played. Perhaps these two will meet again in the playoffs.
There's two ways to look at this. The first is the last-place team vs. the top team. But I prefer to look at it as the defending champion Brawlers vs. the 2018 favorite FDC Chiefs. Brake has been to the last three Patriot Bowls, so don't let his Week One hiccup define this team. They'll be contenders. On the flip-side, Pennington didn't have to draft his team from the back of a Humvee this year, and it shows. His team is the favorite to win it all. I think the Chiefs will win, but don't be surprised if the Brawlers even up their record at 1-1. Whether they win or lose though, the season is long from over for the PFC's most successful franchise.
