APBA Pro Football Replays and More!


I’ve used the APBA Football Master game to replay several seasons.  The Master game provides the “ebb and flow” of an actual contest and allows the “coach” the opportunity to deploy multiple personnel packages to mirror today’s game or the single platoon system of yesteryear. On numerous occasions, I’ve matched team records and have come extremely close to replicating team and individual statistics.

My original purpose for creating this blog was solely to present my current and previous replays, offer “method of play” alternatives, share innovations, provide tools for evaluating individual cards, post links and informational tips to assist with preparing for and conducting season replays.

Of course season replays will always remain the focal point, however, it’s my goal and ambition to cover all aspects of APBA Football ranging from historical, solo tournaments, league play and the finer points of Face-to-Face play. To accomplish this, I’ve enlisted the help of the finest minds in all APBA Football. My team of authors have been former card makers for the game company, innovators, league commissioner, writers for the APBA Journal, and APBA Hall of Famers.

Site authors are Mr. Mark Zarb, Mr. Ray Dunlap, Mr. Dave Urban, Mr. Greg Wells, Mr. Phil Molloy and Mr. Scott Griffin. Site contributor is Mr. Doug Reese.

Kansas City 44 – Cleveland 16

I know it doesn’t look like it, but the Browns actually hung around in this game until the fourth quarter.  After three periods, Kansas City led only 17-10, but it was then that Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs decided to get serious, throwing three TD’s in what turned out to be a rout!

Cleveland really shot themselves in the foot the whole game.  Quarterback Baker Mayfield completed nearly as many passes to Kansas City (7 interceptions) as he did to his own teammates (12 completions).  And, his most costly pick happened in the second quarter when Tyrann Mathieu intercepted a pass intended for Odell Beckham in the Chiefs’ end zone.

Mahomes, who was injured on Kansas City’s very first series, still had a phenomenal game, hitting on 27 completions to ten different receivers for 462 yards and 5 touchdowns.  In fact, the Chiefs accumulated a remarkable 600 yards of offense in this game!

Nick Chubb, Cleveland’s talented running-back had a fantastic game in defeat, rushing for 193 yards on only 18 carries, including a 41 yard run on his very first touch and a 54 yard TD scamper late in the first half.

KC will now host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in an AFC semi-final game.
