The Breakers swept the Bandits as New Orleans won 34-3 in Week 2.

The regular season concludes next week and the playoffs begin the following week in Canton, Ohio.

Houston Gamblers hand the Birmingham Stallions their first loss of the season, 17-15

Houston Gamblers QB Kenji Bahar got his first start of the season and lead the offense with 164 passing yards and one touchdown. J'Mar Smith had a big game for the Birmingham Stallions with 239 passing yards and one touchdown.

FOX Bet sports trader Dylan Brossman predicted a New Orleans victory.

"The Breakers were one point away from knocking off the undefeated Stallions last week, even after Kyle Sloter’s three interceptions and a missed PAT," Brossman said before New Orleans' win. "I expect a hungry, bounce-back performance to avenge the close loss.

"The Breakers lead the league in passing yards per game and should be able to move the ball against a middle-of-the-pack Bandits defense. If the Breakers can avoid costly turnovers, I don’t see Tampa Bay to keeping pace with New Orleans."

PICK: Breakers moneyline (-175 at FOX Bet, bet $10 to win $15.71 total) to beat Bandits outright (win)
