Series history: The Soul hold a 5-4 edge, including a 76-55 win at Columbus on April 21.

About the Soul: Dragging a two-game losing streak that's knocked Philadelphia from the conference's top spot ... This is the middle game of a string of three in 11 days ... Quarterback Matt D'Orazio has just four interceptions in 269 attempts, the fewest among AFL QBs with at least 250 attempts ... Wide receiver Kenny Henderson was placed on injured reserve with a broken collarbone.

About the Destroyers: One of Columbus' eight losses came last week to 2-8 Kansas City ... Brought in Lary Kuharich in Week 6 as offensive coordinator. Kuharich's father, Joe, was the Eagles' head coach from 1964-68 ... Columbus quarterback Matt Nagy, a Delaware alum, is fifth in the league with a 117.2 passer rating.

Poll position: Last week's last-second loss at Georgia dropped the Soul to third in the weekly media poll. Division rival Dallas is ranked first, followed by Chicago.

Notable stat: The Soul has given up at least 60 points in the two games since defensive backs Mike Brown and Brian Mance were put on the injured list - the only games in which opponents had gotten to 60.

Replay approved: The league's board of directors yesterday approved instant replay for the 2008 playoffs. The system is similar to the NFL and officials are limited to 90 seconds to review a disputed call.

Up next: Host Kansas City on Thursday at the Wachovia Center before a bye in Week 14.
