The Iron on the other hand have cruised to comfortable wins in two of their three games, and failed to put up at least 20 points only once. Built around their stellar defence, Birmingham have allowed a total of 21 points to be scored on them in their three games.
Jamar Summers will be licking his lips at the prospect of facing Woodside, as he ranks second in the league with 2 interceptions. With pressure coming from Jeremy Faulk, and Jonathan Massaquoi, the Iron defence will look to continue their weekly dominance.
On the offensive side of the ball, Trent Richardson has been pounding on the goal-line all season. While his yards per carry are clearly abysmal, he is a load and almost impossible to stop around the endzone.
The Commanders best hope is to make this game a shoot-out early. If they can get off to a flyer like last week, and eliminate the mistakes they have a chance. Forcing the Irons to put the ball in the hands of Luis Perez will likely keep them in the game.
However, the chances of Logan Woodside being able to protect the ball seem slim, and that for me will be the deciding factor. The Iron offence will likely grind it’s way into the 20 point region again, and while the Commanders have the firepower with Mekale McKay, Alonzo Moore, and Greg Ward Jr. to put up some yards, that Iron D will be, once again the deciding factor.
