(Tulsa-AP) -- The Tulsa Talons will for the first time host an AF2 playoff game.

The 13-and-3 Talons play 12-and-4 Carolina on Sunday at 6 p-m in the first round game at Convention Center Arena.

Tulsa will send one of the league's top quarterbacks against one of the best defenses in arena football Two.

Carolina led the league in total defense and was second in scoring defense. The Rhinos allowed the fewest passing yards per game and the lowest completion percentage. The team was also tops in the league with 52 quarterback sacks.

Tulsa counters with quarterback Craig Strickland and the league's fifth-best passing offense. Strickland finished second in AF2 in both passing yardage and touchdown passes.
