Update--One win in their final three regular-season games will secure a postseason berth for the Avengers, who if the season ended today would be seeded third in the playoffs. But Los Angeles would like to catch Arizona, which has already clinched a playoff berth and is currently the second seed. The Rattlers are led by veteran Arena quarterback Sherdrick Bonner, who has completed 210 of 341 passes for 2,519 yards and 54 touchdowns. They defeated Buffalo last week, 69-42, for their third victory in four games. Los Angeles has won three in a row, including a 58-44 decision over Toronto last week. Avenger fullback Chad Dukes leads the league in rushing with 200 yards and 10 touchdowns in 64 carries. Last week, he became the third player in Arena history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a career.

Tickets--(213) 480-3232.
