AAF: Birmingham Iron at Atlanta Legends Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Week 5 of the AAF season and perhaps the most anticipated matchup so far, the undefeated Orlando Apollos against the Birmingham Iron.

While Steve Spurrier's Apollos have yet to taste defeat, the Iron were upended by San Antonio this week for their first loss. They will surely be looking to get back to their winning ways today, but that will be a huge challenge against Orlando.

Trent Richardson is still the Iron's most potent weapon, and their defense will try to slow down an electric Apollos offense. These are almost certainly the two best teams in the AAF, so this should be a great game.

The game will begin at 11 am Pacific on TNT.
