This weekend the 2nd position Firenze Guelfi will vacation to Milan to encounter the first location and undefeated Seamen in what appears to be like like a preview to the Italian Bowl 2022 as the Italian Football League reaches the 1oth round of the time.

Firenze Guelfi 5-1 @ Milano Seamen 6-

The Firenze Guelfi have come a prolonged way from their week 1 reduction to the Parma Panthers. Considering that then, the crew has been joined by returning head mentor Artwork Briles and gone on a rampage through the IFL, outscoring and out rushing everyone who opposed them.

This three-headed rushing assault, plainly the function of mastermind Briles, is made up of quarterback Andrea Fimiani, Jared Gerbino and Ahmaad Tanner. Astonishingly, the most outstanding of the three is the lone Italian and the quarterback, Fimiani, who has in the latest weeks revealed his ability as a passer as opposed to just a runner.

On the opposing side of the industry are the Seamen. Milano has been photograph perfect since week 1. Though quarterback Luke Zahradka’s completion level has hovered at all-around 60%, his yards and touchdowns have dwarfed that of any other passer in the league, with the following male down throwing half as several touchdown passes.

As amazing as the Seamen’s offense has been, their defense has been even greater. More than 6 games they have let in an astounding 34 details (the second very best defense hasallowed 108). This is a obvious indicator of the dominance that the Seamen have shown this calendar year.

With Guelfi averaging 439 yards of offense a recreation, this will certainly be wherever the activity is gained and dropped. The Guelfi defense has not proven the similar fervor as their offense thus much, but if they are equipped to drive just 1 or two turnovers, they stand a good prospect of beating the seemingly unbeatable Milano squad.

Ancona Dolphins 3-3 @ Modena Vipers 3-2

The Modena Vipers had been 1 of the league’s most popular teams before very last weekend, dispatching all would-be challengers with relative ease on their way to 3 straight victories. Nevertheless, last weekend they were being dismantled by the Seamen, working a really serious blow to the team’s self confidence.

The Ancona Dolphins have experienced a comparable trajectory to the Vipers, successful the tight game titles early in the season but falling to the likes of Guelfi and the Seamen.

Even with these mid-year setbacks, both equally groups have proven that they can contend with the very best of them and are now in prime situation to make a run for the playoffs at the backend of the period.

The Vipers predominantly second-division roster has by now taken leaps in the top division this calendar year, demonstrating some plucky perform when the activity is on the line. If they hope to contend in the playoffs nonetheless, they will want to bring some regularity to the table.

Milano Rhinos 1-5 @ Warriors Bologna 1-5

The last sport of week 10 will see two teams preventing to remain in the major league when the Milano Rhinos journey to Bologna to take on the Warriors.

The Warriors started off the time in good form, seeking far much better than they had in modern many years. Import quarterback Gabriel Cousineau and jogging again Shakif Seymour have been capable to preserve the scoreboard ticking more than and continue to keep the Warriors in video games.

But the absence of Cousineau in current months has still left Seymour at wildcat, stunting any semblance of offensive output.

The Rhinos, on the other hand, have been wildly inconsistent all yr on the two sides of the ball. Based on what Rhinos crew demonstrates up, this could be a landslide victory or a touchdown significantly less affair.
