2019 LWOS All-IFL Teams Announced

Green Bay Blizzard clinch home playoff game

The Green Bay Blizzard defeated the Cedar Rapids River Kings 56-15 on Saturday night to improve to 8-5 on the season and clinch a playoff game at the Resch Center for the first time since 2012.

Running back Anthony Philyaw led the way with four touchdowns in the first half and the Blizzard never looked back.
Green Bay Blizzard clinch home playoff game
Green Bay announced following the game that the first round date has already been scheduled for Friday, June 21.

The Blizzard have not yet announced a time for their playoff game, but we can now confirm that it will be them as the No. 4 seed taking on the No. 5 seed in the IFL playoffs.

Now, the No. 5 seed in the playoffs can be any of Tucson, Quad City, or Nebraska, whom are all 6-7 heading into the last week of action.

The good news for Green Bay is that the Blizzard are a 4-1 combined against the three teams.

The most likely scenario would be Nebraska losing to 12-1 Iowa (the Barnstormers have won 14 home games in a row and can still earn the first seed with a win and an Arizona loss). That would put the winner of Tucson-Quad City into the Resch Center in two weeks for the playoff game.

We’ll learn more next week after the IFL finishes out its regular season.

The Blizzard will finish out their year taking on Cedar Rapids once again next Saturday, though this time at home. The game will kick off at 7:05 p.m. CT on YouTube.
