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.

Green Bay 12 – LA Rams 10

How do you win a game without scoring a touchdown?  Well, enter Mason Crosby and the Packers.  Crosby’s four field goals were all Green Bay needed to nip the Los Angeles Rams 12-10.

The Rams actually out-played Green Bay, running up 375 yards of offense to the Packers’ 221.  Plus, they scored the game’s only touchdown.

But six turnovers, including an interception thrown by Jared Goff on a 1st and goal from the Green Bay 4 yard line, did the Rams in.


Atlanta 34 – NY Giants 23

Both quarterbacks played great in this game featuring Daniel Jones for the Giants and Matt Ryan for Atlanta . . . but the Falcons brought a much more balanced attack, rolling up 120 yards on the ground to go along with Ryan’s 380 yards passing as they scored 24 second half points to rally for a victory and eliminate New York from the tournament.

Julio Jones was Ryan’s favorite target, snaring five passes for 165 yards and a pair of scores.  Atlanta stays alive and moves into the elimination round.


Kansas City 42 – Indianapolis 10

Every so often you sit down to roll a game and you just marvel at an individual performance.  Well, imagine doubling that and watching TWO amazing individual efforts.  That’s what I experienced when the Chiefs hosted the Colts.

Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill went off on Indianapolis!  Mahomes was 24-32 for 398 yards, no interceptions and SIX touchdowns!!  Hill hauled in 6 of those completions for a remarkable 212 yards and 3 TD’s!  Throw in Travis Kelce’s 7 catches for 97 yards and 3 TD’s of his own, and you have a good old fashioned rout!!!

In Kansas City’s two victories in this tournament, Mahomes has now completed 47 of 70 passes for 710 yards and 11 touchdowns with no interceptions!
