The XFL returns for Week 3. Thee Houston Roughnecks and the Tampa Bay Vipers played earlier on Saturday. QB Phillip Walker is making the rounds, and fans want to see Walker back in the NFL. There was a highlight play where Walker was scrambling and, at the last minute, found a receiver down the field for an 84-yard touchdown. The Vipers seem hesitant to play their best quarterback, Quinton Flowers, but he’ll likely start moving forward. At one point, Flowers led the Vipers in rushing and passing.
The late game will feature the Dallas Renegades at the Seattle Dragons. The Renegades got in the win column last week after Cameron Artis-Payne ran for 99 yards on 14 carries, and Landry Jones completed 70% of his passes for 305 yards. Dallas is 1-1 on the season. The Dragons won last week as well, beating the Vipers 17-9. The Dragons defense did the heavy lifting as they intercepted Tampa Bay three times. On offense, they didn’t top 100 yards passing. I still have yet to watch a game, but if the XFL is your thing, enjoy it!
