Their tails wrapped tightly around the top spot of the Arena Football League’s most competitive division, the Rattlers defend their territory when division rivals the Utah Blaze enter the Snake Pit for a late-season showdown. Throughout the matchup, the scoreboard’s light bulbs are expected to earn their paychecks as two of the league's top-scoring offenses exchange points in an old-fashioned desert shootout. Over the first 13 games, quarterback and 2011 league MVP Nick Davila has led the Rattlers attack with 89 touchdowns, 39 of which have been hauled in by the deft hands and telepathic mind of 2011 Rookie of the Year Maurice Purify.
The 2012 season marks the Rattlers' 20th anniversary as part of the AFL, and with a 10–3 record thus far, the team is in prime position to celebrate the milestone campaign with its first championship since 1997. During timeouts, fans can veer their attention from the field to the rollicking dance steps of the Sidewinders or the antics of rattlesnake mascot Stryker, who revs up the crowd by threatening to bite opponents with his deadly foam fangs.
