After finishing their inaugural 2011 AFL season a game shy of the playoffs, the Pittsburgh Power return to the gridiron in a quest to clinch their first playoff. When starting quarterback Andrico Hines was injured earlier this season in a match against the Orlando Predators, quarterback Derek Cassidy stepped onto the field to lead the Power back from a 41–17 deficit, achieving the biggest comeback in AFL history. The team hopes to channel that momentum in upcoming games against the Kansas City Command and 2011 playoff contenders the Georgia Force.
