ArenaBowl '92 (or ArenaBowl VI) was the Arena Football League's sixth Arena Bowl. The game featured the #2 Detroit Drive (8-2) against the #1 Orlando Predators (9-1).[1] Earlier in the regular season, these two teams met with the Predators winning 50-49 in the "Miracle Minute."

Game summary[edit]

In the first quarter, the Predators struck first with Kicker Jorge Cimadevilla getting a 48-yard Field Goal. The Drive responded with FB/LB Broderick Sargent getting a one-yard touchdown run. Afterwards, Orlando responded with Cimadevilla kicking a 36-yard Field Goal.

In the second quarter, Cimadevilla went right back to work for the Predators with a 26-yard field goal, yet Detroit came right back with WR/DB Rodney McSwain recovering an Orlando fumble in the endzone for a touchdown. Afterwards, the Predators responded with Quarterback Ben Bennett completing an eight-yard touchdown pass to OL/DL Eric Drakes. Immediately after Orlando's score, the Drive struck again with OS George LaFrance returning a kickoff 57 yards for a touchdown. Afterwards, the Predators closed out the half with Bennett completing an 8-yard TD pass to WR/DB Carl Aikens.

In the third quarter, Detroit started taking control with OL/DL Flint Fleming getting a one-yard touchdown run, while Quarterback Gilbert Renfroe completed a 24-yard touchdown pass to LaFrance.

In the fourth quarter, Orlando tried to fight back with Cimadevilla nailing a 31-yard Field Goal, yet Detroit replied with Renfroe completing a 15-yard touchdown pass to Langeloh (the kicker). The Predators tried to answer back with Bennett completing a 20-yard touchdown pass to WR/DB Herkie Walls (with a failed PAT), yet the Drive answered with Renfroe completing a 17-yard touchdown pass to WR/DB Gary Mullen. Afterwards, all that was left of Orlando's comeback was Bennett's seven-yard touhdown pass to WR/LB Bryan Moore.
