Rattlers regain top spot in AFL Power Poll

Going on the road and scoring 86 points on your opponent will apparently open the eyes of Arena Football League coaches.

That's exactly what the Arizona Rattlers did last Saturday, heading north to blow out the Utah Blaze 86-70 to improve their record to 7-3 on the season.

And for that reason, the Rattlers have moved up from third to first in the Week 12 AFL Power Rankings, leapfrogging the San Jose Sabercats and the Philadelphia Soul in the process.

The Rattlers were led by the devastating passing combo of Nick Davila and Maurice Purify, who hooked up for 7 touchdowns in Arizona's record-setting win. Davila threw 11 touchdown passes in the contest, bringing his season total to 68, which ranks 2nd in the league behind Utah's Tommy Grady (80).

The Rattlers take on the New Orleans VooDoo (4-5) in the Crescent City Saturday night.
