Prior to a Week 3 bye, the Blizzard lost its first game of the season as they traveled to the Spokane Empire losing 34-31.

The Blizzard were led by quarterback Matt Behrendt who threw for three touchdowns in the game, two of those going to receiver Marquel Willis. Green Bay was led by defensive back Manny Asprilla who had four tackles and an interception in the contest.

This will be the first of three matchups between these teams this season. The game features two of the best receiving threats in the Indoor Football League (IFL).
