The Washington Valor (1-7, 0-3 road) have not won a game since week one in early April in the first game for both franchises as they tore apart Baltimore in the first half and won 51-38 at Verizon Center.
To get you set for this critical and must-win rematch for both teams, you should watch the following videos! First, Anna Tarullo and I get you set from a Brigade perspective with a look at the Valor as well right here.
The Brigade comes off a loss at Cleveland last week, and as we discussed on "Brigade Gameday" need a much better start than they had last week.
With a focus on the struggling Valor, here's Valor sideline reporter Caitlin Mangum and me trying to figure out how Washington can win a second game on the year and their first since April 7.
**Tracy Belton has three interceptions for the Valor, tied for first in the AFL. He also has 38.5 total tackles.
*** Valor QB Sean Brackett has 16 touchdown passes in his three starts for Washington. He threw for 299 yards and seven scores against Tampa two weeks ago before their bye.
**The Brigade are allowing 57.3 points per game on average, the worst in the AFL in 2017. The Gladiators are second-worst at 53.2 PPG allowed.
***The Valor have the worst scoring offense in the AFL in 2017 at 41.9 PPG. The Brigade are the second-worst scoring offense at 47.6 PPG.
