Attendance at The Dome at America's Center was 32,403, an impressive number considering the St. Louis Cardinals game was played at the same time just a few blocks away.

St Louis had already defeated DC once earlier this season 45-12.

With a win next Saturday against the Arlington, TX Renegades, the Battlehawks can clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
