Iron claw back, but not enough to stay unbeaten

Birmingham's offense has not been what you'd call explosive, high scoring, even at times, competent or effective. However, it was not true until a 12-11 loss to San Antonio. Trent Richardson touchdown, his seventh of the season – and by then it was too late – The Iron was not to score a touchdown until the final two minutes of the game. This is a team that's been getting ready for a first-time mentality, but San Antonio has been shooting for it every time. With Orlando looming on the horizon, the Iron Need to regroup quickly before facing the best team in the AAF. However, nothing through the first four weeks – 19.3 points per game – indicate they'll be able to keep up with the Apollos.

Interception leads to San Antonio touchdown

In a low-scoring game, every opportunity feels more critical as the game goes on. Moreover, every mistake is amplified by 100. Zack Sanchez feels huge – like, game-changing huge. Perez had not been playing all day, but had avoided the big mistake. But this throw on the cover is not his finest move and he paid for it.

Then, on San Antonio's ensuing possession, running Trey Williams showed nice burst on a 12-yard touchdown run to give the Commanders a 9-3 lead. The Iron are out of this game. In fact, Birmingham likes to play games. But San Antonio has done a nice job of running the ball and controlling the line of scrimmage. That's an issue for the Iron.

Commanders and Iron locked in a low scoring game

You're not going to find a more #onbrand than the Iron locked in a 3-3 game with the Commanders after one helped. San Antonio actually started running out of Birmingham with a 21-play, 78-yard drive, but it ended in a Nick Rose field goal. San Antonio's red-zone offense has been weak with about a 21-percent touchdown rate, but the Iron's red-zone defense has been a staple of this team all season.

Birmingham without starting center

The Iron's offense wants to be one of its top players against the Commanders as starting center J.C. Hassenauer has been ruled out for Sunday's game with a knee injury. Hassenauer did not participate in this week with the injury. That actually gives Birmingham time to adjust, but keep looking at the snaps to quarterback Luis Perez, as well as the protection up front.
