This weekend the Memphis Express will travel to face the Salt Lake Stallions. Both teams of which have one win. I think this will be a one-sided matchup this weekend. Keep reading to see how this plays out!.
Zach Mettenberger who keeps getting overlooked will have the game of the year against the Stallions; but if only all his receivers come to play and not just Horn. The lack of open receivers is what hurt last weekend.
The receiving corps should be getting open a lot in Salt Lake. All the Mett needs is just a small bit of space, and he can sling it to his man. Zach Mettenberger will be finding his man all day in Salt Lake.
Last weekend the Express had the game but let the Legends keep up. I don’t think holding off Josh Woodrum will be a similar issue. Woodrum is on the bottom half of starting quarterbacks in my rankings. Woodrum tends to let the pressure get to him and tries to make deep throws but puts to much air under the ball. That should allow the Memphis secondary time to get under it.
Defensively, the Express needs to keep the energy all game and not gas out towards the end like with Atlanta. Coach Singletary who was a linebacker himself should pride in helping the defense turn into a juggernaut, but that has not come into effect yet.
Austin MacGinnis can land deep field goals if the Stallions do stop Memphis in field goal territory so that will not be an issue. The Express special teams are one of the better special teams in the AAF in my rankings as well.
I have this being a heavy offense game for Memphis, and this will be the week Zach Mettenberger’s big week. I have Mettenberger landing three touchdown passes and rushing for one.
The final in Salt Lake I have at Memphis Express – 34 Salt Lake Stallions – 13.
