The Arizona Rattlers have had an excellent 2011 season, leading the Arena Football League's National Conference with an 11-2 record. Tonight, they take on an interdivisional foe in the San Jose SaberCats at 7:00 PM Pacific time at US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix.
The Rattlers have essentially guaranteed themselves a spot in the postseason with only five games left to play in the regular season. Now, they must focus on locking down homefield advantage in the postseason.
QB Nick Davila has thrown for 78 touchdowns over 13 games, with Rod Windsor and Trandon Harvey combining to catch 55 of those scores.
Arizona is going to be very difficult to beat for the SaberCats, who at 5-7 are teetering on the edge of contention for the playoffs. San Jose must play with incredible urgency to stop the high-octane Rattlers offense.
Action begins at 7:00 PM tonight, and downtown Phoenix will be very busy with both the Rattlers and the Arizona Diamondbacks in action. Check back here postgame for a full rundown of the Rattlers' performance tonight.
