Utah Blaze looking to pick up the pieces against Jacksonville
SALT LAKE CITY — It started with glimmers of prosperity and feelings of potentially challenging for an AFL championship. Now the Utah Blaze's 2013 season appears to be about picking up the pieces.
Utah (4-7) dropped its third-consecutive game on the road against Chicago last week, 67-43, furthering the gap within the West Division in the process. At this point, Arizona (11-1), Spokane (9-3) and San Jose (8-3) are all well ahead in the standings based on overall records.
As a result, the Blaze host Jacksonville on Saturday at 7 p.m. inside EnergySolutions Arena with nothing to lose.
The Sharks (8-4) sit atop the American Conference but have struggled against National Conference competition with a 1-4 record, including an 0-3 mark against West Division teams. Jacksonville potentially will make a change behind center with Kyle Rowley listed as the intended starter to replace Bernard Morris, who remains on the inactive reserve list.
