Shock remain No. 2; Sharks No. 1

The Spokane Shock didn't play last week, but they were poised to climb into the No. 1 spot in the AFL coaches poll when top-ranked Milwaukee lost to Arizona.

It didn't happen. Spokane remained No. 2 in the Week 10 rankings while Jacksonville, which lost the Shock two weeks ago, vaulted from No. 3 to No. 1. Milwaukee dropped to No. 3 and Spokane West Division rival Arizona moved up two spots to fourth.

Spokane holds on to its No. 2 spot, and the Milwaukee Iron drop from first to third after losing to Arizona on the road. Arizona jumped two spots with the win to No. 4, their highest ranking so far this season. Rounding out the top five is Chicago, who fell a spot in their home loss to Jacksonville.

This is Jacksonville’s second time atop the Coaches Poll. They were also ranked No. 1 in Week 8. So far this season, the Rush have topped the Coaches Poll the most times with four: Weeks 1, 3, 4 and 5. Jacksonville will observe their second bye of the season in Week 11 action.
