The Blizzard will return to the Resch to take on the Sioux Falls Storm in a week 15 matchup.
Sioux Falls is coming off of a bye week, but have already clinched a playoff berth. However, the game against the Blizzard will prove to be pivotal in determining the final seeding for the playoffs.
In their last game, the Storm needed to a late surge to push them past the Cedar Rapids Titans 56-45. Running back Marques Rodgers ran for 111 yards and had two touchdowns on the night. Quarterback Lorenzo Brown was effective on the ground as well with 34 yards rushing and three touchdowns. In the air, he threw 13 times for 70 yards and a touchdown, but also had an interception.
Jabari Gorman and Trey Wafford lead the team with seven tackles, and the team recorded three blocks. The team did well to fend off the passing attack of the Titans, holding Jake Medlock to under an under 50% completion rate and also sacking him twice. Sioux Fall was hurt by 11 penalties and kicker Miles Bergner went 2 for 4 field goals.
The Blizzard are coming off a tough 41-14 defeat against the Iowa Barnstormers, in which the team could only muster 141 total yards. B.J. Hill only had seven rush attempts for 10 yards and Bryan Hicks went 12 for 22 with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Chris Malott caught his team leading seventh touchdown of the season and Tim Lukas got his first in a Blizzard uniform. Robert Metz lead the team defensively with an incredible 12 tackles and Manny Asprilla got his first interception of the season.
Green Bay will look to rebound in front of the home crowd and will need to take advantage of the energetic atmosphere of the Resch Center. Lorenzo Brown of the Storm will be the player to watch as he can beat defenses in both the air and on the ground. How the Blizzard deal with him will be the key to if Green Bay can get their third win of the season.
