2020 Long Island EFL Week#1 Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons

Recommended Posts


The LIEFL #20 Ranked Atlanta Falcons (1-0) (66-85) took on the #27 Ranked Seattle Seahawks (0-1) (49-101) in Week One!

July 26, 2020. (The Georgia Dome, Atlanta Georgia). The "Beast" is back! LIEFL All-Pro and 2019 LIEFL MVP, Gerald Riggs, Long Island's Electric Football League's #1 All-Purpose player last season--who became the first 2,000 yard player with 2,339 total yards on offense with a record-crushing 21 touchdowns for the (3-4) Falcons in a seven-game season, broke loose again!

Riggs stormed into the end zone with a 254 All-Purpose yards day, as the Falcons beat the tough Seattle Seahawks 17-14, with a 47 yard field goal to win the game in the Georgia Dome!  Riggs busted out with a blazing 100-yard kick-return to put Atlanta ahead 14-7, but the "Lynch Mob" and Marshawn Lynch stormed right back with a 59-yard rushing touchdown of his own down the right sideline against a vulnerable Atlanta defense to tie the score at 14-14! 

In this see-saw battle the 67'Big Man plus-sized Riggs might be one of Tudor Games electric football freak of nature and one of the biggest running back's we've ever seen (See photo of Riggs #42 colliding with Seattle's #96 Cortez Kennedy).

The newly Purchased Falcons and Seahawks were painted in 2019, in their old school throwback style uniforms. The Atlanta Falcons (3-4) in 2019, nearly made the playoffs last season, but in the last game of the season, the rising stars, New Orleans Saints beat the Falcons 26-21 in a tremendous division rival game which collapsed the Falcons hopes for the LIEFL playoffs after a record-setting season in our league!

Seattle is no slouch! They played every single team tough last season. And they are on the verge of making the playoffs for the second time in their Long Island Electric Football history. Although they are a little undersized, Seahawks Marshawn Lynch plays BIG! Lynch is tough to bring down, as he rushed five times for 118 yards with two touchdowns today. Seattle played well on the road in the Falcons house, and this game went right down to the wire with both teams playing tough on defense.

Gerald Riggs proved again that he will challenge opposing defenses with his size and speed as he navigates his way through another challenging schedule this season. Riggs is one of the hardest guys to stop in this League in his quest for a 3rd MVP All-Purpose title. The Falcons can play anybody on any given day with the talent they have. Tudor made some BEEF on this front line. The Falcons need improvement on defense, but they will score BIG if teams in tournaments can match their scoring drive.

Next week Atlanta goes to Dallas and New England plays Seattle.

Great looking teams...i always thought 31 william andrews was a super back for the falcons too....thanks for sharing.

Thank you brother!  Andrews was a great back!  6'1 230 and a beast to bring down.  He sorta reminded me of Brandon Jacobs who played for the Giants, but Andrews was more athletic.
