The Arizona Rattlers moved to a league best 6-1 record after taking down the Green Bay Blizzard 65-33 in Week 9.

Arizona would then use the strong field position to score a touchdown two plays later, giving the team an insurmountable 45-20 lead. Lindsey finished his night with one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, one tackle for loss and four tackles. The Arizona Rattlers face the Cedar Rapids Titans in Week 10.
