:MIA:

The perennial contenders seemed poised to make a run to repeat as Eastern Conference Champions. Over the offseason the team added (and drafted) a new QB, signed the best pure CB on the market, and signed an elite receiving weapon. In week 1, the script went perfectly with a dominating 38-8 home win against Los Angeles. All seemed well entering week two, but these good vibes did not last through the end of the week.

 

61-14. The Neptune's loss in week 2 to the Herd was tied for the worst loss in franchise history. It was their worst home loss in franchise history.

 

A rare blemish for the signature EFL team, but ultimately it is only 1 regular season game. Miami already made a run last season to win this division, and they are not out of contention because of any week 2 loss. This week 3 game does seem to be more important for them to re-establish themselves.

 

:TOR:

 

Toronto are the furthest thing from a perennial contender in the league. The Skyhawks last made the playoffs in season 28 (when the playoffs included 4 teams per-conference, rather than the modern 2). Last season was a successful step for Toronto despite finishing last in the East because it was the first time since season 28 that the Skyhawks broke .500.

 

The Skyhawks have had a strong start to their season. Week 1 was a dominating 39-14 win at home over last season's champion Minnesota Frontier. Week 2 was a comeback divisional win on the road at Wisconsin, clinched by a field goal with 14 seconds left. Toronto may actually be learning how to win.

 

But Toronto has a lot to prove before they are treated seriously, and are presented with a huge opportunity tonight to make a statement in the East. Perhaps just as badly as Miami would like to avenge their week 2 performance, Toronto would like to continue their current tear.

A nice early completion, but Meatball breaks up a 3rd down attempt to Taylor to force the Toronto punt!

Miami moves the ball 40 yards, but still is forced to punt after the Grey tackle. He had 4 of those during this series!

Toronto actually has the most passing yards per play in the league, even more than New York. You wouldn't have guessed it from this series though as the Skyhawks best play was to draw a DPI.

Reed-Diggins jumps the route! Algren wanted Jones on that throw, and turnovers were a big issue for Miami in week 2. Toronto is now set up with great field position!

2:04 4th and 10 TOR - 32 Punt by T, B. of 32 yards. Touchback.

 

If you had expectations of any sort for Toronto's offense in this situation, I have bad news for you.

 

2 dropped passes, a terrific Goncalves pass deflection on the pass to Goncalves.

 

Stuck with a 4th and 10 from the Miami 32, Toronto punts. Bold choices!

The rushing offense was working, which usually means it's a great time to call play-action! Grey was never fooled by that though, he was on Algren before Algren even knew he was there!

Not much happening for Miami here, and Taylor then gets a good return on a short punt!

Some big gain passing games from Toronto as they move into the redzone! Even though there is a team in the EFL averaging 58.5 PPG currently, Toronto actually has the top 2 receivers by yardage in the league in Taylor and Wilson! Both are averaging over 20 YPC so far this season!

10:18 TOUCHDOWN!
(T kick NO good)

 

The Skyhawks passing attack brought an extra DB onto the field, and Landen Smith punished the Neptune with a 8-yard TD!

 

But Big T misses the extra point! No worries right? That stuff only ends up being significant like 40% of the time!

Grey having a big game, that's his 2nd sack so far! Miami's offense has stalled, and they punt to Toronto

That one won't help his 20+ YPC, but Taylor will take it for his 3rd receiving touchdown of the season! Toronto has gained the lead with a big 2nd quarter after a very impressive drive!

The Illegal Formation penalty ends up costing the Neptune first down, and Miami seems to need halftime to re-group. We aren't there yet though, as the Neptune have given Toronto the ball back with good field position and time on the clock. Will the Skyhawks try to extend their lead before the half?

The Skyhawks do remain aggressive, and set up Big T with a 35-yard field-goal with 15 seconds left on the clock! Terrific coaching from Toronto on that sequence!

Near disaster for me, as Algren throws another interception and Red Panda brings it back to the 12-yard line before being tackled with no time left! That one sure seemed risky!
