Week 3 of the Legends Football League (LFL) 2017 season saw the Chicago Bliss (1-0) travel to Colorado to meet the Denver Dream (0-1) in what was the first game in franchise history for Denver.

The result, a 93-6 win for Chicago, highlights the talent disparity between the established teams in the league and the newbies.

In a league where multiple teams disbanding at the conclusion of each season is commonplace, the on-field product disparity between established teams and those in their infancy is stark. The 87-point margin of victory by the Bliss is less a reflection of the talent the Dream put on the field than it is the result of teams with experienced players that understand what it takes to compete in the LFL facing off with new players being led by coaches new to the league.

The take away from the game is that Chicago looks ready to make another title run. Chicago had five different runners score TDs and also scored via a kick return, a pick-six, and a safety en route to the blowout win.

Add the performance of the Chicago defense (8 sacks, 3 INTs) to the mix and you have a team that looks ready to carry another Legends Cup from the field.

Stat Leaders:

Rushing: Javell Thompson (Chicago) had 45 yards on 4 carries (4 TDs).

Passing: Zshayln Canfield (Denver) totaled 25 yards (5-15) with a TD and 2 INTs.

Receiving: Mallorie McDowell (Denver) had 4 receptions for 18 yards and a TD.

All-Purpose Yards: Tamar Fennell (Chicago) totaled 46 yards (29 R, 17 KR).
