Recap

While the New York Knights eventually held on for victory, the concern was not on how the defense played down the stretch, but who has not able to contribute to the effort.

Linebacker Jeb Gatlin suffered a fractured wrist in the fourth quarter and will miss the remainder of the season. He leads the team in tackles with 59 and a team-high 7 against the Rollers Monday. Gatlin’s injury joins tackle Toni Boselli, who suffered a season-ending injury back in week one.

Just because the Knights are battling some significant injuries doesn’t mean the team has missed a step offensively, however. Joseph Redfeather turned in his second-straight 500-yard passing game of the year as the potential MVP just keeps getting better as the season goes along. He did, however, throw two late interceptions, his first game with more than 1  INT since the season opener against Dallas.

The loss eliminated the Rollers, whose offense looked jagged before Gatlin went out. Marocni still did finish with a career-high 83% completions, 31/37 passing for 359 yards. Running back David Badha has a 94-yard touchdown, the longest run from scrimmage in league history, but was held to just 38 yards on his 27 other carries.

New York has clinched a playoff home game and will either play Oklahoma City, Dallas or Orlando in the first round at Heritage Field.
