This is a match up of two of the top teams in the league. Last week the Jets made a nice comeback at Adrian and escaped with a 25-24 win. The Pirates jumped out to a quick lead on Crestwood but had to hang on in the 2nd half to win 30-28. Airport won last season's battle at home 35-7.
Airport has a solid ground attack and can throw the ball when needed to. Defensively the Jets will be one of the best in the league again and this is why many have them tabbed to capture the title.
Riverview has plenty of speed in the backfield but was dominated up front last week in the 2nd half. The Pirates will have to do a better job against the run and stay away from mistakes if they plan on upsetting the Jets.
This is an intriguing match up because of the caliber of last weeks opponents. Airport won against a strong team and program while Riverview struggled against a perennial losing program. There may be more to the game tonight as Airport may be a bit shorthanded. Pick: Airport 28 Riverview 21
