Despite facing a tough uphill climb towards the playoffs the Spokane Shock can take some comfort in the fact that, statistically speaking, they are one of the best teams in the league with just four games to go.

Spokane moved up to No. 6 in the AFL Power Rankings on Monday – right behind Chicago and just a head of San Jose.

Spokane put a shellacking on San Jose over the weekend, scoring 90 points against the depleted SaberCats in a convincing win. Quarterback Kyle Rowley threw an AFL-record 12 touchdowns in the win.

The Arizona Rattlers remained on top of the rankings for the sixth consecutive week, followed by San Antonio, Philadelphia and Utah. The Rattlers can clinch a playoff spot this week with a win over Spokane and a loss by San Jose.

The Shock host the Rattlers this Saturday at 8 p.m. The game can be seen live on SWX, SWXRightNow.com and on the Syncbak app for mobile devices in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.
