Sabrina, Kelly and Kris don shoulder pads after members of a women's professional football team are terrorized by a pair of motorcyclists in Angels In The Backfield.

Amy Jarvis, player/owner of a women's professional football team, seeks the Charlie Townsend Agency's help after two thugs on motorcycles attack one of her players on the practice field. Her team, the Ducks, is scheduled to play an exhibition game at the Los Angeles Coliseum the following week. Charlie notes that Sabrina and Kelly once took part on a police football team, and instructs the Angels to go undercover as members of the Ducks. Julia Smyth, owner of the Ducks' opponent, tries to recruit quarterback Sabrina for her team. Sabrina notices that Julia rides a motorcycle, and suspects that she might be involved in the attack. Kelly and Kris hope to wrap up the case before the game so that they don't have to play, while Sabrina wants to teach the overconfident Julia a lesson. Through Coach Amy Jarvis believes the harassment is designed to scare her players out of playing the sport at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Angels soon discover the attack is really tied to a plot to rob the stadium of over a million dollars.

Angels playing all girl football!!!! What more can you ask for?When this episode was shown,that is just simply left to the imagination.But decades later,we can now see women playing the sport.Aside from women playing the sport,we also how our heroines - Charlie's Angels - prevent culprits who prevent women playing this seemingly a man's sport giving the episode a feminist view especially when this show is purely characterized as for Jiggle TV and somewhat sexist considering that it simply features women in sexy attire or not wearing bras.In the end,it somewhat contrast what some viewers back in the 70's perceive what Charlie's Angels is all about.I give it a perfect 10/10 rating because of that.
