This is not the way the Rattlers expected to start their season. They find themselves in an 0-2 hole with Howard coming in this weekend.
The Howard Bison are also in need of their first win, but for them, they have reason to hold their chins high. Last week they lost to the defending champions Hampton by just a touchdown.
Last year when these two teams met up at Howard, the Rattlers enjoyed a 31-23 win.
Running back Anthony Edwards led the charge in that one piling up 124 yards and 2 touchdowns. He expects to step up again this year.
"The first two games that we lost woke us up and told us that we really have to play a lot harder from the beginning to the end, on this upcoming game," cites a confident Anthony Edwards.
