Record vs. Rush (2007) -- 1-1.
Update -- The Avengers have lost three of their last four games, including last week’s 52-48 home loss to New York. In that game, quarterback Sonny Cumbie played well after replacing starter Tim Hicks in the first half and nearly led the Avengers to a come-from-behind victory. Chicago, which already has clinched a postseason berth, knocked the Avengers out of the playoffs last year with a 52-20 victory in the divisional round. One of the top players for the Rush is wide receiver Damian Harrell, third all-time in receiving yards in Arena Football League history.
