The Express and Apollos duked it on Saturday night. Originally Hackenberg was the starter until getting benched during the game due to very poor results, such as throwing two killer interceptions and not scoring a passing touchdown in 9 quarters of play. Mettenberger was called to action, and he should stay in action.
When Mettenberger’s number got called, he did not disappoint. Mettennerger just to begin with the two monster touchdown passes he threw, which were to men in coverage as well. The Mett is hungry, and he will continue his streak of fury next weekend. He is very excited to back in football again and will definitely look to wreak havoc against the San Diego Fleet next weekend.

Zac Stacy is a guy a lot of people are disappointed in, as am I. Stacy had another dud game having 14 carries for only 29 yards. Stacy is a guy we all thought would be a monster but as yet to blossom. If he can get back on track, the Express could shoot up the power rankings.
On the receiving corps, Devin Lucien looked good having three catches for 51 yards and one touchdown. His partner, Gerrard Sheppard, caught the monster touchdown pass for 51 yards and a touchdown on just one measly catch, thus making the most of it.

No one really stuck out to me to have a definite player of the game. Everyone collaborated pretty well, and when they keep their heads together, they can make a comeback in the AAF.
This weekend against San Diego will decide if Memphis are contenders or pretenders. Mettenberger was called up to play in the right time, and with him under center, the radar looks clear for the Express. Make sure to read my pregame article later in the week.
