All Day vs Halal Bros – 11/19/22 – 10:30 AM Eisenhower
The top two teams from the preseason have fulfilled their season goals. All Day is looking to become CFL’s second only repeat champions and Halal Bros is hoping pulling together their super team is going to stop them. They played a thriller earlier in the season with All Day walking it off with a 28-27 victory to set the tone for the rest of their season.
That would be the only time Halal Bros lost as they ran through the rest of the season. They handled Underdogs without much of a fight but ended up in an overtime battle to get into the finals versus a controversial Caliphs team that featured fireworks all over the field including misconduct penalties, sideline yelling and a controversial call to nullify a game winning touchdown. Give credit to the Bros though, they never lost their head or argued they just handled their business and got the W.
All Day also flew through the quarters handling an undermanned Imaan team before doing battle with a familiar AK team who came close to ending their run but fell short at the end. These two teams are very similar and it starts at the head. Yash and Blaze are two elite quarterbacks who never seemed nervous despite the situation. That comes with experience as they have forgotten more about football than a lot of these young guys know. Yash has his team running perfect plays and has an unmatched chemistry with his top receiver Cal who torched Halal Bros (and most other teams) the first time they played. Blaze’s arm talent is immaculate and is never disrupted or rushed by the blitz he takes his time and is never afraid to take a shot over the top to Arthur, who was a big factor last time these two teams met or take his checkdown to longtime veteran Ken he rarely makes mistakes that are going to cost his team possessions. On the defensive end both these teams have a proclivity for giving up a long ball and that should be focus number one for both of them coming into the game.
For All Day balancing that with keeping the short checkdown guys from just chewing up the field will be a fierce battle. For All Day it’s just stopping the sheer number of good wide receivers that the Halal Bros can throw at you from Arthur to Will to the former MVP Nafi. It will take a level of discipline on that side of the ball we don’t know if they can play. In the end this game is really a toss-up so we will defer to the fact that repeating as champs is hard and Halal Bros has the fire of losing to All Day in the regular season to drive them. In a back-and-forth game that should be close until the end it may be decided by who has the ball last.
Official Prediction: Halal Bros 33 All Day 28
