It appears like Sunday was a fairly good indicator for the way the Roughnecks-Renegades playoff matchup will go. Arlington is the one playoff workforce with a sub-.500 file and was crushed fairly simply by Houston in each matchups. Nonetheless it’s exhausting to beat a workforce thrice in a single season, and it’s doubtless that the Renegades didn’t play each card in a recreation that was borderline meaningless.

Prediction: Houston 26, Arlington 12

The North recreation is a little more intriguing. DC has been the workforce to beat all season, with the one blemish coming in opposition to the Orlando Guardians in Week 7. Nonetheless, the Defenders seem like slumping as they exited the common season, whereas Seattle is peaking. The Sea Dragons completed the 12 months on a 7-1 run, and the one loss was a one-point defeat by the Defenders. Seattle is sizzling and needed to play with fireplace to achieve this level.

Prediction: Seattle 32, DC 30
