Spokane is going nationwide. The Shock, now in Iowa for Friday night's nationally-televised game against Barnstormers have chance to show the rest of the AFL they're the best in the league.

The Shock, who have yet to lose a game on the road this season, play an Iowa team that's had its struggles. The former team of NFL superstar Kurt Warner goes into Friday's game with a 6-7 record and faces the probability it will be on the outside looking in when the playoffs roll around. Iowa would have to win all its remaining games, and Milwaukee would have to lose its final three games for the Barnstomers to get into the postseason.

Realistically, Spokane could lose its remaining games and still have home-field advantage throughout the American Conference playoffs. But head coach Rob Keefe said his team wouldn't take its foot off the gas pedal - no matter the competition.

"I think it's my responsibility to get players seen," he told reporters. "I'm going to put the best on the field every week. Somebody asked me the other day, 'Do you want to lose before the playoffs?' No, I think you want to win at everything you do all the time."

Friday's game against Iowa kicks off on the NFL Network at 5 p.m. (PT).
