Pirates Preview: Tulsa Oilers (1-11) at Massachusetts Pirates (8-3)

Kickoff: The Pirates are back after having a bye week last week. They will look to finish the home schedule undefeated tonight against the struggling Tulsa Oilers. The Pirates won the first ever meeting between two teams last month, 49-28.

Here three keys for the Pirates tonight.

1. Keep the good times going: The Pirates have been the best team in the IFL the past six weeks and they will look to keep it going against a Tulsa team they should have no problem with.

2. Here’s to you Mr. Robinson: Running back Jimmie Robinson has been one of the best players in the IFL this season and the key cog in the Pirates offensive attack. Expect him to get plenty of touches tonight with key games coming up down the stretch.

3. D do your thing: The defense has been the catalyst for the Pirates strong play of late and will look to continue to gain confidence against a Tulsa offense that has struggled all season long.

Final Thought: The Pirates will look to wrap up the home slate 7-0 with a win tonight. The Pirates finish the season with three straight on the road, so taking care of business tonight at home against a subpar opponent is key.
