TULSA – The Spokane Shock dominate the Arena Football League Coaches Poll for the second straight week. The Shock received 11 of a possible 14 first place votes.
The Tampa Bay Storm slid past the Jacksonville Sharks into No. 2 this week after a victory over Alabama. Tampa Bay will play in-state rival Orlando for the final game of the regular season. The Sharks, falling one spot, will host top-ranked Spokane on the NFL Network on Friday (5pm).
Despite a loss to Spokane last week, Chicago moved up one spot into the top five and has a bye this weekend. Milwaukee fell the most this week, dropping three spots to No. 6 but they've already clinched the top spot in the Midwest Division.
The seeding for the playoffs is still a hot race for a few teams. Jacksonville and Tampa Bay are fighting for the top spot in the South Division and American Conference, with Jacksonville currently leading. The battle in the National Conference is between Arizona and Chicago for the third and fourth seeds. The final placement of both teams is hinging on the outcome of Arizona’s match versus Cleveland this weekend.
