Last week, the St. Louis Battlehawks rode a five-game winning streak into Birmingham for a showdown against the undefeated Stallions.

This week the Battlehawks face the D.C. Defenders, who are coming off a costly home loss to the Michigan Panthers that could prove to be the dagger to their UFL playoff aspirations. St. Louis has no margin for error and figures to be fully focused on Sunday.
