Shock Remain in Playoff Mode.... Even Facing Kansas City

SPOKANE, Wash. -

The Kansas City Command is just 2-9 this year in the AFL. Just don't tell that to the Spokane Shock, who need to believe any team can beat them… so no team will.

The Shock are making a run for the playoffs and have the perfect opportunity beginning Saturday at Spokane Arena. A win against KC would get the Shock ready for the most important stretch of the entire season: games against division rivals Utah, San Jose and Arizona – two of which are at home.

"Coming off the loss [to Chicago] and the situation we're in, we need a win every time; we're not overlooking anybody," said defensive back Terrance Sanders.

In reality, coach Andy Olson has had the Shock in playoff mode for several weeks. That kind of attitude – and the arrival of quarterback Kyle Rowley – has led to the Shock revival as of late. They were on a season-high three game win stream until last Sunday's loss at Chicago.

"Nothing has changed," said Sanders. "It's just another game. We're only going to look at Kansas City, so we're not looking ahead to whoever is next. I don't even know."

Just to clarify: eight teams make it to the playoff. Spokane (6-5) currently sits behind Utah (7-5) as the last team in the West on the outside looking in. A win against Utah would go a long way towards getting into the postseason. A loss against any of the division rivals could likely spell disaster for the Shock.

Unless it doesn't.

You never know what will happen until it happens in the AFL.
