Seattle Thunderbirds 9 @ Spokane Chiefs 7
G Riku Helenius, SEA: Did not play.
DeSerres got the start for Seattle, who apparently signed Seahawks kicker Josh Brown and got 3 field goals for the win. If this was the case, though, a football team named the Chiefs would be capable of scoring a touchdown, so this obviously is fictional.
