FUSE TV - 'LFL' Game 17 Recap: Chicago’s Journey Continues, Atlanta a No-Show 41-6

The Atlanta Steam (3-3) came into Sunday’s playoff matchup with plenty of confidence, having beat up on the Omaha Heart all season long. Moreover, they touted 2 MVP candidates in quarterback Dakota Hughes and wide receiver Lauran Ziegler, which is quite possibly the most dynamic combination on offense in the Legends Football League. As for the Chicago Bliss (6-0), they haven’t lost a game since early in the 2013 season. They also have a league-leading quarterback in Heather Furr, who likely feels snubbed by MVP voters and running back Chrisdell “Ferrari” Harris, who averages 6.6 yards per carry and is dreaded by linebackers across the league.

This was a home game for the Chicago Bliss, which only intensified the microscope on Atlanta’s 2 MVP hopefuls. While young, Hughes has proven that she can deliver textbook strikes downfield, it also helps to be throwing to the league’s best receiver. Ziegler is phenominal at the wide receiver position, with 20 catches and an average of 11.2 yards per catch. Her 7 touchdowns nearly doubles the 2nd best receiver in the LFL. She has the frame, speed and hands that most receivers dream of. The Atlanta Steam have built up quite the reputation for being young and explosive, but the Chicago Bliss are chasing their third championship in a row and have very little respect for a team that’s established itself against the LFL’s lowliest franchise of all-time (Omaha).

The game kicked off on a designed play by Atlanta that would see the ball kicked short in hopes of catching the mighty Bliss off-guard. Instead, Chicago would field the kick well enough to hold onto it and begin with great field position at Atlanta’s 21-yard line. Right away, Furr went to work throwing the football. On what appeared to be a broken play that ended as an incompletion, Atlanta was flagged for being offsides. A mistake which can be expected from an inexperienced playoff team in the playoffs.
