Live from the Shark Tank, it's INTV Bowl VI. The Intellivision Football League championship game between the Mutants and the Bombers!
We have a first this year: this is the first time two past INTV Bowl winners have faced off in the league championship game. The Mutants won the first INTV Bowl right here in this arena in 2014. The Bombers won INTV Bowl II in 2015. Both teams have had some rough seasons since winning their championships, but they have both fought their way back to the top of their divisions and reach this game today.
The Mutants come into the game with a 6-3-1 record. They were hot in the first half of the season with a five game win streak but quickly turned cold with a 1-3-1 record in the final five games. They only became Action Network champions because the Beamriders failed to win their final game. Their offense is one of the best in the league, and their defense ranks second in the league behind the Bombers. They will need that defense to return to first half form to win this game.
The Bombers had an even bigger win streak during the season, winning seven in a row before losing their last two. Their offense ranks second in the league, slightly better than the Mutants, and their defense was the best in the league, giving up 14 points at most during their win streak. They too need their defense to stand firm today. Both teams are relatively evenly matched overall!
The Bombers are the home team, wearing their brown and black uniforms. We're under 30 minutes from starting!
