The Alliance of American Football league is set to get Week 6 underway this weekend. Included on the slate of games is a matchup between the Birmingham Iron and San Diego Fleet.

Both teams have the same record at 3-2, but media pundits are looking at the Fleet as the more dangerous team right now. While they’re currently a six-point favorite, that doesn’t mean that the Iron won’t have a chance in this one. Defensively, Birmingham has done an excellent job of limiting opposing offenses’ success.

Here’s a breakdown of the upcoming game, as well as a scouting report on the Iron’s latest opponent:
