    Locally, I believe it's channel 19 on Comcast and channel 3 on Fios. That's all I know.

    I haven't sen a Power game yet. I've only seen parts of maybe 3 Arena games ever. I don't get NFL Network anymore, so this is my first chance to check out a game. I'm kind of interested. Unfortunately they're using quite possibly the worst announce team ever.

    First drive for the Power they got down inside the 10, but the QB missed an open receiver in the end zone on first, had a ball dropped in the end zone on second, then threw a pick in the end zone on third down.

    The Talons drove down the other way to the goal line. The Power stopped them on the 2nd an goal from the 1 then again on 3rd and goal from the 2, but the QB snuck in from the goal line on 4th.

    7-0 Talons

    2nd drive for the Power they ran they kick out to around the 10 and just did nothing from there. They tried the long FG on 4th, but it came up short. The Talons ran it out to around the 15 and are driving again. They're down near the Power's 10 again at the end of the quarter.

    7-0 Talons after 1.

    First play of the second quarter the Talons QB runs it in for a TD for 6 or 7 yards out to make it 14-0. They've been running all over the Power.

    On the kickoff Thompson for the Power ran it way back to the opposing 9. Next play Thompson takes a run play and goes backward about 7 yards. McCabe misses another potential TD throw, but then hits Rue in the middle of the field around the 10 yard line and he stumbles around and into the endzone.

    14-7 Talons. 11:43 left in the second.

    After that update there were about a million penalties in a row on both teams. I think the Talons played the same 4th down 4 times in a row before they finally converted via penalty. Eventually they completed a pass down around the 15 and the guy fumbled and the Power recovered.

    The Power drove down pretty quickly and hit a nice leaping TD catch by Mike Washington in the back of the end zone.

    Tulsa got the ball back with about a minute left and drove down around the 10, but couldn't get it done before time ran out.

    14-14 at the half.

    Missed some of the third, but nothing good happened for the Power. Talons kicked a FG, then the Power fumbled the kickoff leading to a TD. 24-14 Talons.

    Anthony Morelli came in at QB for Pittsburgh and looked sharp early, but threw a pick after they had driven most of the field.

    Third quarter is over. 24-14.

    It's getting ugly now. The Power have made one mistake after another in this game. Turnovers and penalties galore!

    Apparently I chose the worst game to watch. The Talons haven't even looked very good, Pittsburgh's just been awful. The Talons scored on their first drive of the fourth, then the Power got nowhere on the kickoff and fumbled the next play. Tulsa had it down near the goal line and scored easily on the first play. 38-14 at that point.

    Morelli came out the next drive and hit a bomb in the endzone, but apparently the motion man was offsides. At least it looked nice. Eventually they ran off a few more plays and actually scored on a pass to Washington. They went for two to make it a 2 score game. Looked pretty clear that Morelli didn't get in, but the refs gave him the points anyway.

    38-22 with about 4 mins left.

    Failed onside kick and Tulsa scores again. 45-22 final.

    This game was really terrible all around. The biggest play for Pittsburgh was the kick return that set up the first TD. The second TD was also on a bit of a shortened field after the fumble. Their only real drive was late after they were already out of it. Tulsa just lived off of turnovers and penalties. Didn't see any of the offense they're always talking about.

    they looked pretty flat. I taped the game and watrhed her this morning. They looked flat but in a way it was tough to tell if Tulsa is that good or we just played a bad game

    Tulsa has been a really bad team so far up until this one. I think the Power pretty much gave this game to Tulsa with a lot of turnovers, mistakes, and penalties. You can make a really bad team look good with that combination!
