OUR WEEK #5 STAT LEADERS WILL FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE

This article is written By Coach Matt Zoo-York with contributions by Billy O'C, Ed Viggs, Joey Pizz, and Paddy Brannigan.

Long Island Electric Football League. December 18, 2022. Happy holidays to you and your families and thanks for stopping by to celebrate the hobby! The LIEFL is filled with a dynamic professional group of eight METAL-BOARD warriors who coach for money! So, welcome to another exciting week on Long Island in week five of The Long Island Electric Football League with some great matchups and coaches as we wind down our 6th consecutive 7-game season. Prior to 2008, we played a 14 game season, but those days are over. Once we hit the real world, EF was put on the backburner until we renewed our pact to keep this league and game alive. 

The intensity is building in the final drive to make the playoffs, which will be filled with fireworks!  We think our league is electrifying and if you look in the past Tudor Games Forum you may have fun seeing what we are about by reading about the plastic hero's of the league.  We have kept incredible records of the LIEFL since its inception in 1972, and we may be one of the very few leagues in the United States with these kinds of details. Thanks to the National Electric Football Game Museum the art of playing this hobby is preserved in this amazing museum! Our league can be followed on the fantastically clever Tudor Games Forum https://forum.tudorgames.com/forum/45-long-island-electric-football-nation-67-big-men-established-in-1972/

The LIEFL 2022 season has wasted no time with players who can't perform. This season the league was stacked with power players thru the LIEFL 2020 new draft picks, filled with incredible talented players and coaches, and a BUZZ that has the speed of the game rocking. As we write these articles, we will always provide interesting details of our league's rich history, and we encourage others to do the same through the Tudor Games Forum. We are grateful that they are tech-savvy enough to provide the platform to communicate from around the world about this awesome game which will be celebrating 75-years soon! Like your leagues we have some real characters in our league too! 

Week #4 was a Wild one filled with upsets. We have just two games remaining in the regular 7-game season with the drama building and coaches talking.  The drama will build, the intensity and emotions will grow, the trash talking will always be there, but the professionalism in the league is a standard!

Let's get down to the business of he game. It was another historic record setting week in Week#5 of the Long Island EFL. We still have one undefeated team left in the 2022-23 LIEFL season, the Miami Dolphins (5-0) who beat the tough no quit New Orleans Saints (1-4) 17-14!  Miami will face their season reality check when they play the Tennessee Titans (4-1) on the road again in Week #6! The Dolphins have s super rich history in this league and they've won two AFC titles in a row, but they have fallen just shy of a Super Bowl win the past two seasons. Coach Billy O'C needs to finish strong for these Dolphins. O'C said, "I love the way those Titans are playing and we know we are in for a tough game as the competition is really tough this season with teams like the Titans who have benefitted from the draft. We are facing Derrick Henry, who is #4 in AFC rushing with 437 yards and 6 touchdowns. So we know what he's made of, but can he run through Jason Taylor, the top dog last year? Time will tell." The league is catching up to the rebuilt Dolphins and Taylor with the draft.

We will cover the biggest games of the week and bring the excitement to you with photos using a program that turns our photos into colorful amazing detailed pieces of art. This week's fireworks started with two battle-hardened teams in the running for the NFC Playoffs. On paper you couldn’t find a better game featuring two LIEFL Hall of Fame players and two outstanding coaches. League loudmouth Johnny Freeport-Chucker had a big decision to make. Would he play with his Falcons or his Lions, since they are both his? He chose his Lions because he felt his Falcons could make it into the playoffs at the moment, and he said he needed to push the Lions to the limit to try and qualify them for the playoffs so that he gets more than one chance at the prize.

1842510639_LIEFL495LOGO.png.19ff8d103c797a1931ab5e6798e2f747.pngDETROIT LIONS VS ATLANTA FALCONS

1258124454_dexter1.jpg.0c51cd7f332e48ea6e797590d1d801d5.jpgIt's hard not to measure up the competition before any electric football game statistically and categorically, and when you have the records that we have, it's even more exciting because it brings the league to life, that's why we keep playing. Two of the best running backs faced off in Atlanta Falcons running back Gerald Riggs who has been on fire, but so has league favorite Detroit Lions star Dexter Bussey, both elite players in our league who rose up from being the underdogs of the 70's. We never changed their player bases. They are historic! The Lions history comes from the gutter of 1978 to 1984, producing a record of 19 wins and 37 loses with a LIEFL career record of (72-74) at the beginning of the season ranked #16 in the LIEFL . One guy in the lineup has never changed, Dexter Bussey. Bussey had amassed more than 11,000 all-purpose yards in the LIEFL with 78 touchdowns. Did we say legend in our league? Gerald Riggs has been a beast, winning a multitude of awards as well. He owns the 7-Game season LIEFL all-purpose yards record with an astonishing 78 attempts for 2339 yards with 21 touchdowns in 2019! He is a flat out amazing back and that is part of what makes the competition special in the league. Alternate coach Joe Bino will play the Falcons against Chucker's Lions. 

The Lions and their rise to the top came through the loudest coach in the league, Johnny Freeport Chucker (PHOTO: JUST BEFORE KICKOFF) who changed the destiny of Detroit after our first Draft. From that point on, his Lions have been involved in some of the greatest rivalries in the history of this league. His play has caused lots of controversy and his mouth, even more. His draft selections are the key to his Detroit Lions success today. He went from one of the worst teams in the league to LIEFL Super Bowl XII Champions in 2016 when they beat the New England Patriots 42-17! No one will ever forget his face when Coach Joey Pizz New York Giants and Ahmad Bradshaw ran back a touchdown in the 2008 NFC Championship Game to beat Chucker's Lions 45-35! Chucker never forgot it. And in their 2016 run for the Super Bowl Dexter Bussey and Chucker got his revenge the Lions back-to-back NFC Championship Game beating the New Giants 31-24! The rest is history! While he may be loud, the Freeport-Chucker is great for an already intense league.

But, this week’s game of the week had a small dilemma. In our league when a coach has to play against his own team, we have an alternate coach Joe Bino who fills in.

The intensity and speed of the game was great. Bino played the Falcons right to the edge, even better at times than the Chucker. Chucker said before the game, "Having LIEFL superstars Gerald Riggs and Dexter Bussey makes it easy to score.  It is a matter of them performing and Bino isn't as good as he thinks he is. He tries to talk himself into wins because he has no emotional connection to the game. All he cares about is money." But Boy did Bino perform! This game was taken to overtime in a dramatic finish with the score tied 21-21, when Falcons superstar Gerald Riggs ran back a 100-yard touchdown in 13 seconds of overtime to end the game! Riggs had 411 all-purpose yards with 123 yards rushing and two touchdowns, including a 65-yard dash, then he caught a 23-yard pass for a touchdown. He had an explosive 265 special teams’ yards performance in the game! We think these two guys would be bad asses in any league. Detroit's Dexter Bussey finished the game with 247 all-purpose yards with two touchdowns as these two unstoppable guys put on an offensive show filled with great plays!

Both Riggs and Bussey are in the usual top five in the NFC all-purpose players this season. The ending of this season will be interesting to see where these two great teams will finish. Beating Carolina will be a heavy task for the Falcons, and Detroit took Green Bay into overtime already 13-10 earlier in the season! We may see these two teams again in the playoffs, which now has seven teams from each conference competing for the prize. LIEFL will issue $1800 to this year’s Super Bowl XVII in Coquina Key, Florida, and $1400 will go to the loser.

RAIDERS CASPER'S THREE 100 YARD KICK RETURNS FOR TOUCHDOWNS AND BRONCOS DAVIS PUT ON A LIEFL HISTORIC SHOW!

1842510639_LIEFL495LOGO.png.19ff8d103c797a1931ab5e6798e2f747.pngDENVER BRONCOS VS LAS VEGAS RAIDERS

1634575718_CASP2ART.thumb.jpg.ffff23716e0c42bbcc3447eb724a958c.jpgThat's two weeks in a row the Raiders have been involved in a Game of the Week in this League. This big game turned out to be more like the game of the year so far! "It was like the Ali-Frazier thriller ' in Manila of electric football and one of the most exciting electric football games I've ever seen," said Raiders Coach Kevin Mac. The division rivalry between the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders doesn't need an introduction, it is a war  in the LIEFL. We have a league statistician that loves watching these games. Andrew Slawson -Slawson's Corner said, "These two teams have a history in the league obviously, but Kevin Mac transformed the Raiders in the first LIEFL Draft in 2008, that is when we knew Dave Casper (PHOTO: RAIDERS DAVE CASPER TAKES BACK ONE OF HIS THREE 100 YARD TDS VS THE BRONCOS) was special. I was at that game for LIEFL Super Bowl XI on July 12, 2008, when Casper opened the game with a blazing 100-yard touchdown run against, who I thought was the better team in Coach Joey Piz' New York Giants, but Casper carried the team to overtime and the Raiders outlasted the battle with a Casper 100 yard touchdown in overtime to silence the critiques of the league, beating the Giants 27-21 and winning their first ever LIEFL Super Bowl!"

Billy O'C said, "This was the best division and regular season game watched in a long time in this league, the battle to the best in the division. Nine touchdowns were scored, 909 total yards in the game which saw four 100-yard kick returns for touchdowns! It truly was almost as exciting as last year's Super Bowl between Miami and Green Bay. Punch punch for punch the Raiders and the Broncos went at it right from the opening kick off when Raiders LIEFL Superstar Dave Casper opened the game with a magical 100-yard touchdown run, we knew this game was on because Broncos Star and last year's LIEFL Offensive Player of the Year Terrell Davis was going to put on his own show right until the last second of the game! davis1art.thumb.jpg.6bc70f3f6fb6b114684adc3bfb82de63.jpg

I am sure coaches around the world who play this hobby can relate to the fact that the skill of the game and the life the plastic players bring to the game is unexplainable. This one left us speechless!

Just when we thought we saw the best game of the week with the Falcons and the Lions, this Raiders-Broncos duel was filled with fireworks! The Raiders are currently ranked #17th all-time in the LIEFL with a (75-82) record. The Broncos are currently ranked #3rd with an all-time record of 107-66-1!
Last season we watched Denver's Terrell Davis tear up the league with his League leading 1924 all purpose yards with 15 touchdowns and he had eight 100-yard kick returns for touchdowns. That is a feat in any league regardless of rules. He is a beast to stop. He was voted AFC Offensive Player of the Year by the coaches. Last year the Broncos made the playoffs for the first time since 1991. They lost in the Wild Card Game last season to the Indianapolis Colts 27-10, but they made a statement that they will be competitive and won't be walked on. 
652937236_casperbreakart.thumb.jpg.9c6582134929cfeeb588a046698f78b0.jpgThis game saw Raiders running back Bo Jackson scamp for a gorgeous 46 yard touchdown run set up by Coach Mac, as Jackson followed blocker Jeff Barnes down the right sideline carrying Broncos defenders right into the endzone! But Broncos Coach Paddy "Moose" Brannigan wasn't having it. His star player Terrell Davis returned the favor with a 100-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 28-28!  Davis would finish with 119 yards rushing with three touchdowns and 279 special teams yard with a 100-yard touchdown, totaling 398 all-purpose yards with touchdown runs of 23, 6 yards, but he also had a 56 yard run! The Orange Crush stormed right back leaving second for the Rushed Raiders on the clock. After setting up with just 11 seconds left in regulation, Dave Casper would get his last chance to return the football. Casper darted to the right side of the field behind a wall of blockers, then he went center, and history was made again. Casper returned his third 100-yard touchdown of the game in such dramatic fashion to a room that erupted! Casper ended the game with 5 kick returns for 433 all-purpose yards with three 100 yard touchdowns as the Las Vegas Raiders stun the Denver Broncos 35-28! "It's not over until it's over in Raider Nation. We want to be back in the playoffs" an excited Coach Kevin Mac said!  The Moose said, "Oh my God, I was screaming all the way to stop Casper, but he is special and amazing to watch and when he's hot in that silver and black jersey, that's it, it's lights out. Best game I've ever been in!" The Broncos are historic team in our league. They are the only team other than Miami who has been undefeated in the regular 14-game season era in the LIEFL. That was in 1978 and that season they made it to me playoffs but in the first round they were beaten major upset to Billy O'C's Buffalo Bills, losing 28-27!

1842510639_LIEFL495LOGO.png.19ff8d103c797a1931ab5e6798e2f747.pngCLEVELAND BROWNS VS. GREEN BAY PACKERS

 

When the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns took the field the ambience of the buzz, we hear in electric football was unmistaken before the game as Coach Viggs worked on his Packers. Then we dipped the bottom of the very tip of the player base on our running backs and receivers in water to be sure all are professionally prepared to play each game, clear from any particles that may be logged in the teeth of the base. In the LIEFL, they have to be perfect because we have finicky coaches! 

We knew this would be a great game building up for these two (3-1) historic teams in the Long Island Electric Football League. The Packers and their preservation in our league are historic.  They are one of the original seven teams born along with the Miami Dolphins to play the first ever game in our league between an international female athlete and her son. Their coach can play with anyone who plays the game. Coach Viggs is on the verge of making more history in our league. He has won 99 games with this Packers team! They are currently (99-77) all-time, and rank #4 all-time in the Long Island Electric Football League or LIEFL. The Browns are currently (78-73) ranked #14th in the LIEFL. The reason why we picked the 495 logo is because anyone who visits Long Island learns that we have one of the busiest trafficked highways in the eastern United States. The logo best suits us because we are busy people!

This was an intense and hard-hitting game. The excitement building up to the game between Coach Matt “Zoo-York” and Coach Ed Viggs produced the excitement. Matt is leading the league in coaching wins, now (13-7), and Coach Viggs now at (13-8) is one of the top guys to beat. In fact, Viggs is the guy to beat!jb1ART.thumb.jpg.1c4c23b4cedd9f9003a1c708221862e3.jpg

Green Bay's fullback Jim Taylor brought the intensity as he toughed it out for the second week in a row rushing for exactly 107 yards again. Taylor moved left and then was turned right running right behind a hole opened up by Ray Nitschke for a gorgeous 59-yard touchdown run which had us wondering how he did it. We are sure other coaches around the world ask how their plastic figures pull these plays off as well. Watch out for Taylor on the rise. This game came down to the wire with time running out in regulation down to their final play, the great Jim Brown just couldn't get the job done. Brown took it 42 yards on the last play to the 1-yard line just short of tying the game and sending it into overtime. The Browns missed the opportunity. Opportunities don’t come easy again Green Bay at home. But the Browns made a statement to the AFC, and they can compete with the best. They did a great job shutting down the special teams of green bay limiting Sterling Sharpe to just 75 yards on kick returns.

801700288_sharpebrown1art.thumb.jpg.78ae9e11c509ab135adcebaf6daa7df7.jpgIt was a fast-paced game with lots of great defense and plays, especially by Jim Taylor who seemed to just do things on his own. We would imagine it's in any League it's hard to win on the road especially our league where the home team gets the ball first automatically as is our tradition. The Packers are now (4-1) after winning this battle14-10! They face Coach Joey Pizz' Minnesota Vikings at home next week and they finish at Detroit to battle for a playoff spot. Coach Viggs said, "Zoo York" played a great game and I really like those Cleveland Browns. They are a class act tough team this year and they are going places. We have a feeling we might see them again because I don't think anybody in the AFC is as good other than maybe Miami. His Browns are playing at a high level, but hey, we have Sterling Sharpe and a few other great players who aren't going to back down to anybody in a big game.” The Packers are just one win away from celebrating their 100th win, joining Miami, Washington, and Denver on the 100 win list in Long Island EFL history's golden franchise and historic record. These teams would be competitive in any league in the world.

LIEFL Week #6 might turn out to be the matchup of the year for Cleveland Coach Matt-Zoo as they travel to Pittsburgh to play Coach Paddy Brannigan’s Steelers for a huge division game that could decide the outcome of the division. Before the game against Kansas City, Brannigan said, “The Steelers are playing some great football and stopping ‘The Bus’ Jerome Bettis will be a huge task for the Browns defense. After we upset Kansas City we are coming after the Browns for the showdown. Zoo is a good coach, but in his last three games his Browns will face a guy in Bettis who rushed for 85 yards against the Bengals, 118 yards against the Raiders, and 152 yards against the ‘almighty’ Titans. That is what opened my eyes. Stop us if you can. I played around with my team in the offseason by scrimmaging a few friends who play with their kids, and I made my guys in the trenches battle ready. They beat Tennessee who at the time were undefeated. We will be ready! I need to get at least one of my teams to the playoffs.”

In another terrific game the 2020 playoff Indianapolis Colts played a great game against the Arizona Cardinals in Arizona and the game came down to the last seconds where the Cardinals won the game 24-21. OJ Anderson (#32 PHOTO INSET) played such a great game! He unleashed 143 rushing yards with two touchdowns including a 61-yard scamper through the war in the trenches by two tough hard-hitting teams. Colts running back Joseph Addai finished the day with 300 all-purpose yards with three touchdowns. Addai is in top there in the LIEFL in three categories: rushing, kick returns, and all-purpose yards for Indianapolis, now (2-3). He is a dangerous player this season with 56 touches for 1399 total yards with 12 touchdowns. The Cardinals are loaded with offensive weapons. They are one or two draft picks away from being a Super Bowl contender. 

Arizona's LIEFL All-Pro Mel Gray exploded for 227 yards for the Cardinals, including a 71-yard touchdown pass to put Arizona ahead for good! As they say, “It's not over until it's over.” The Cardinals (2-3) face Levi Vicks Dallas Cowboys (1-3) at Dallas next week. Both of these teams are hanging on for dear life to make the playoffs. The Colts (2-3) are home against the Raiders (2-2) and their last game is at Jacksonville for the season finale! Bring on the intensity!

Coach Matt Zoo-York’s Carolina Panthers remain tied for 1st Place in the NFC South with Atlanta. LIEFL All-Pro running back DeShaun Foster exploded for 163 rushing yards with touchdown runs of 30, 45, and 17 yards. This guy came to play as the Panthers crushed division rival Tampa Bay 21-17! Coach Joy Pizz and his Buccaneers fell apart after beating the Rams two weeks ago 7-6. 

In another great game Coach Levi Vick’s much-improved Houston Texans (2-3) lost to Coach Ed Viggs tough Los Angeles Chargers (4-1) 14-13, in a nail-biter! Texans running back Ron Dayne had 190 all-purpose yards, 8 of those were rushing, with one touchdown! LaDainian Tomlinson finished with 114 yards with 63 in rushing and a 49-yard touchdown run. The Texans defense played tough!

We asked Coach Billy O’C what’s going on? He has lost two more games in a row this week in Week #5. His Rams (2-3) who are two-time LIEFL Super Bowl Champs, and his Bills (2-3) also lost. O’C (10-10) said, “Nothing is wrong really, the draft has caught up to the league and coaches.  Really, that’s what is going on.  Every game is a battle and I have to work hard on being a better coach every game. The league is getting better and improving. We are not sick of the game, it is our personal space outside of family life and work to have a great time for a few months out of the year. As for the league, there isn’t confidence anymore to me anyway, that a team automatically wins because of their past record. It is great for the league.  I am not happy I dropped two in a row, but I can see how the draft makes an electric football league incredible. We just didn’t have the money as kids to buy new player bases to replace those who couldn’t perform, but these days, the weak link is identified for each individual player and … Boom, the change is made!”

 adpet.thumb.jpg.51754bb920b529d76bdb0def4b21f071.jpgCoach Joey Pizz said, “We have thousands of old bases that could have been overlooked since 2008’s first LIEFL draft, and we are all allowed to find the base that performs best during the season.” The Patriots are an example of one of those teams. Immediately after Coach Vick refurbished his Patriots, he had a plan to make them shine. Teddy Bruschi’s new player base helped anchor the line, and Matt Light at tackle and Vince Wilfork have helped New England to win three in a row and turn their season around with wins over the Saints 17-14, Colts 21-17, and this week against Bills 21-17!  These teams are no pushover. Now we have to plan differently for each team and be able to make fast thinking adjustments.”

Billy O’C continued, “Never would I have thought that my Rams (PHOTO INSET #28 MINNESOTA'S ADRIAN PETERSON RUNS FOR 100 YARD KICK RETURN), who have so many weapons, would lose to Joey Pizz Vikings, but the Vikings have improved with so many weapons too. Like Levi Vick’s Patriots, these coaches have worked hard to put the best 11-men on the field to compete. The LIEFL is about the best 11-men. Your substitute in this league is finding the best player bases for those 11. We don’t have 20- and 30-man rosters, and there is nothing wrong with that if you do, but you still have to beat the 40 second clock in the league to get those guys on and off the field. One surprise to me is the Seahawks. I thought that because of the season they had in the playoffs in 2020, making it to the NFC Divisional Championship Game, that they would be fierce this year.  They are (0-4), but they have a very strong team. I can’t figure that one out.”

 Patriots coach Levi Vick said, “It’s crazy because the Rams have improved too.  Ricky Proehl’s new player base gave Billy O’C a 74-yard touchdown pass today. Also, keep in mind both of his games were on the road, but to see what I have done with my Pats is incredible. Before I came into the league this team competed in the LIEFL Super Bowl, so I wanted to bring that pride back. For Lawrence Maroney to rush for 180 yards against Billy O’C’s tough Buffalo Bills defense … This really opened eyes. No team is safe in this league and every single team is competitive. That’s the way a league should be, constantly improving. The balance is amazing! These coaches know the game of football beyond plastic figures. I was a third string player in high school.” Billy O’C concluded, “We finally figured out how to balance the league after 50 years. Just look what the Ravens did to the Packers and what the Bucs did to my Rams.”

1842510639_LIEFL495LOGO.png.19ff8d103c797a1931ab5e6798e2f747.png"Our uniforms are pristine. In the LIEFL each coach MUST meet the LIEFL professional uniform standard. We play for pay! We only use the Tudor Games 67-Big Men to play, and there are no variations allowed in our single-stop league when it comes to paint, weight, player bases, etc. Nor are long delays for sticks for passing allowed, and our tackle rules are superior. If you run into the back of a player on a run or pass it's no tackle in our league and the second a receiver is out-of-bounds, they are no longer eligible to make a play during that play. The same for the quarterback. We turn the QB around to run in the opposite direction. He is allowed to run 20 yards and the QB must pass and the game stops just once. We don't do countdown rules which only adds wasted time to our game, or any rule that takes away from fast set-ups or the natural continuity, free-flow, and the speed and time of the game. That isn't realistic", said League analyst and Long Island Sports Hall of Fame and Historian, Andrew Slawson of Slawson's Corner.

Coach Joey Bino said, "Field Goals are not allowed past 65 yards. We use the NFL record to set that rule. Strategy? There is never any turning of bases at any time after a catch to chase a man down with all those countdowns in this league--hello Freeport-Chucker, you got burned! Like other leagues, we make our own excitement and rules. We are not the NFL, but we pride our league on being intense, and we try to give a sense of high-octane pressure on the field with these rules during battle so that the decision-making process psychologically, feels lifelike to our coaches. Watching our newest member struggle internally in his inaugural season with us saw him in panic for the first 3 weeks of play when he was (0-10) with countless penalties which proved very costly to him at the beginning of the season. Boy did he grow as a two-time Super Bowl Champ from the League he came from. He is great now!"

Coach Paddy Brannigan said, "In our league, pass all day if that's your game and equalize the pass with the running game. Four men can be in the backfield and at all times receivers have to line up in their lane. We don't give a darn if players touch on the line. Then coaches have to deal with high pressure between 40-second sets, time clock mindfulness, and any edge they can get to perform at the highest level in the LIEFL. It is all about tradition professional standards and uniforms for clarity of the league as you can see by the photos. Everything is voted on including rules, logistics, planning, and the LIEFL Draft which has changed the competitive environment and nature of this great league and game."

LIEFL Commissioner Billy O'C said, "Ballers of EF have to be reliable in our league. They pay league dues. We have a sponsor who sends the two finalist to our Super Bowl in Florida. We respect the game wholeheartedly, but we also wish Tudor remade some of those speedy trendy player bases of the 70's from whatever molding they used in the past. We would really buy thousands of those unique bases. As for the older version gameboards, we'd pay the $150 or $200 if the board is as high quality as the 1970's boards."

In LIEFL Week six, it might turn out to be the matchup of the year for Cleveland Coach Matt-Zoo as they travel to Pittsburgh to play Coach Paddy Brannigan’s Steelers for a huge division game that could decide the outcome of the division. Brannigan said, “The Steelers are playing some great football and stopping ‘The Bus’ Jerome Bettis will be a huge task for the Browns defense. After we upset Kansas City we are coming after the Browns for the showdown. Zoo is a good coach, but in his last three games his Browns will face a guy in Bettis who rushed for 85 yards against the Bengals, 118 yards against the Raiders, and 152 yards against the ‘almighty’ Titans. That is what opened my eyes. Stop us if you can. I played around with my team in the offseason by scrimmaging a few friends who play with their kids, and I made my guys in the trenches battle ready. They beat Tennessee who at the time were undefeated. We will be ready! I need to get at least one of my teams to the playoffs.” The Chiefs (4-1) are now tied with the Los Angeles Chargers for first place by outlasting the Steelers (2-3) in a tough defensive battle 14-7! The Steelers are still alive in the battle for the AFC North! Brannigan had to eat his words that his Steelers would upset these Chiefs. Turns out they are a good team but still suspect after losing to the AFC West Los Angeles Chargers in Los Angeles last week.

Coach Matt Zoo-York’s Carolina Panthers remain tied for 1st Place in the NFC South with Atlanta. LIEFL All-Pro running back DeShaun Foster exploded for 163 rushing yards with touchdown runs of 30, 45, and 17 yards. This guy came to play as the Panthers crushed division rival Tampa Bay 21-17! Coach Joy Pizz and his Buccaneers fell apart after beating the Rams two weeks ago 7-6. 

Finally, in another great game Coach Levi Vick’s much-improved Houston Texans (2-3) lost to Coach Ed Viggs tough Los Angeles Chargers (4-1) 14-13, in a nail-biter! Texans running back Ron Dayne had 190 all-purpose yards, 8 of those were rushing, with one touchdown! LaDainian Tomlinson finished with 114 yards with 63 in rushing and a 49-yard touchdown run. The Texans defense played tough!

WEEK 6 in the LIEFL will bring anxiety, intensity and more drama as the season winds down and we start to feel the pressure of making or breaking for the Playoffs!  Thanks for following us! Two Christmas Eve Games will be featured in the LV Raiders (3-2) at the Indianapolis Colts (2-3), and the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3) will play the New England Patriots (3-2) as the momentum towards the LIEFL Playoffs gets more intense!
