MAJOR PLAYOFF IMPLICATIONS ON THE LINE AS HEAVILY-FAVORED ACOUSTIC VISIT NASHVILLE

(NASHVILLE, TN – THURSDAY, AUGUST 8) Both the Austin Acoustic (3-0) and the Nashville Knights (2-1) have a lot to play for in this 2019 regular-season finale.

The Acoustic can secure a #1 seed in the postseason with a win over Nashville and Nashville can clinch a playoff spot with a win over Austin.

The Acoustic are heavily favored and if Nashville comes out Saturday night with a win, it would certainly be the biggest upset of the season.

The Austin roster is filled with better talent and more experience at every position so unless Nashville puts together a flawless performance and can capitalize on a number of Austin mistakes, it’ll be an Austin victory.

One area you can’t count out for the Nashville Knights is the coaching presence of Danika Brace. She has this team playing at a high level with good focus and execution.

At this point in the season, Richardson has thrown the most yards-per-game out of any other quarterbacks in the league. Averaging just over 115 yards-per-game, Richardson is just ahead of Michelle Angel’s 111 yards-per-game.

Depending on how the Week-16 game plays out, Richardson would finish the 2019 season as the passing yardage leader.

One stat that Richardson won’t lead the league in, is passing touchdowns. This is Michelle Angle’s stat this season. Angel leads the league in passing touchdowns with 12 through three games.

If Austin wins as expected, they’ll face the LA Temptation in the first round of playoffs. This scenario would feature Atlanta and Seattle facing off as well. This season’s playoffs would feature four quarterbacks who are arguably the top four in league history through history- Dakota Hughes, Ashley Salerno, KK Matheny, and Michelle Angel.

Will Austin do LA a favor and take care of business against Nashville, or do the Knights shock the LFL world?
