Xplorers Get Defensive as Playoffs Near

Let's go Indoors where the Arena Football-2 Memphis Xplorers are finding a full head of steam rolling into the playoffs..

And their players are reaping the benefits.

Xplorers Defensive Specialist Scott Cunningham is Af-2's Defensive Player of the Week.

He had 2-interceptions and a team high 7-tackles in the Xplorers Defensive Domination of Amarillo last Saturday 75-15.

In the game, the Xplorers had 3-picks, 2-sacks, 2-fumble recoveries, one for a touchdown, and a blocked kick..

Offensively, the X-Men were smooth as glass with the return of quarterback Brian Jones.

Jones missed the last game with a foot injury...

The Xplorers lost.

Jones comes back with 6-TD Passes against Amarillo.

'We're confident with what we've got. We have a bunch of young energetic guys. We just have to patch up some injuries and hopefully the others will get the job done.'

The Defending Arena Cup Champion Xplorers, now 10-and-5, have one more regular season game at Birmingham This coming Saturday..

A win will clinch at least one home playoff game at the DeSoto Civic Center.
