What: New Orleans (2-8) at Soul (3-7)
Where: Wells Fargo Center (17,652)
About the Voodoo: Have the worst record in the league by virtue of an 0-6 mark at home. One of their two road wins came against Cleveland, which leads the East Division . . . Like the Soul, New Orleans was idle for 2 years following the 2008 league stoppage . . . The Voodoo has practiced at three different facilities this season, including one where they were logistically unable to film the practice . . . Quarterback D. Bryant made his first start of the season in last week's respectable, 61-53 loss at Arizona. Bryant, who played at Duke for three seasons and was born the day the Phillies won the 1980 World Series, threw six touchdowns and three interceptions . . . Wide receiver/kick returner P.J. Berry (Virginia State) leads the AFL in receptions (97) and kick-return yards (1,130).
About the Soul: This is just the fourth home game for the Soul, which will play six of its final eight at the Wells Fargo Center . . . Linebacker Brandon Perkins will serve a one-game suspension tonight for his role in a fight during last week's 59-41 loss at Cleveland . . . Gutty quarterback Ryan Vena will make his fifth consecutive start. He's averaging six touchdown passes per game over the last four, but he also has been bitten by sloppy interceptions . . . The Soul's 34 percent conversion rate on third down is second-worst in the league . . . Defensive lineman Darrell Campbell has six sacks and is closing in on Gabe Nyenhuis' team record of 9 1/2 set in 2008.
Did you know?: New Orleans' head coach Derek Stingley is the son of Darryl Stingley, the former Patriots wide receiver who was paralyzed after a 1978 hit by Oakland's Jack Tatum.
Tickets: Range from $13-$200 and are available at the Wells Fargo box office, or by calling 215-253-4900 ext. 3.
