A look at the other games in Week 4

There are two other games in the NLL besides the Buffalo/New York matchup that we will preview later.

Rochester vs. Philly
Rochester is coming off a split weekend with the Bandits while Philly is riding their 19-11 win over the Shamrox. Peter O'Toole looked sharp for the Knighthawks while the scoring crew of Crosbie, Iannucci, and Thomson led the Wings. So this should come down to that matchup. But do not discard the fire power that the Knighthawks have in John Grant Jr. and Shawn Williams. The Knighthawks are a well rounded team that can hurt you in many different ways as they showed against the Bandits on Friday. Therefore, the Knighthawks should take this game 14-11.

Toronto vs. Edmonton
The main question from this game is whether the Glenn Clark situation is going to distract this team and whether they will be focused enough to handle the Rush. Toronto dropped the weekend in a fairly rough series with the Minnesota Swarm and Edmonton lost to the Mammoth 14-11. The Rock looked good on Friday but fell apart under the guidance of assistant coach Terry Bullen who maybe behind the bench again for this game as well. The highly touted defense got destroyed against the Swarm on Saturday 11-4. The Rush are coming off a loss against what is billed as the best team in the Western Conference. I just think that the distractions and the possible loss of their head coach is just going to be too much for the Rock and they drop another one here 14-9.
