WEEK 2 PREVIEW 


(1-0) NEW YORK GUARDIANS VS DC DEFENDERS (1-0)


AUDI FIELD
WASHINGTON, DC
02/15/20 2:OO PM


CHRIS GAME OF THE WEEK: Will feature the New York Guardians and the D.C. Defenders.  Both of these teams are undefeated and look to be the cream of the crop after the first week.  The Guardians will travel to Audi Field to visit Cardale Jones and the first place Defenders.  Jones might be the eventual face of the XFL.  Two plays into the game his home crowd was chanting MVP.  Jones threw for 235 yards and two touchdowns.  His offense averaged 5.3 yards per play and the potent offense converted two fourth down conversions.  

Guardians quarterback Matt McGloin might have something else to say about that.  After throwing two touchdowns and 182 yards, the Defenders will need to be able to contain the Guardians offense.  The Defenders are going to be a tougher offensive matchup than Aaron Murray and the Vipers.  If the Guardians can contain Jones, they’ll stand a chance, but I think the Defenders will be too much of a challenge.

(0-1) TAMPA BAY VIPERS VS SEATTLE DRAGONS (0-1)


CENTURYLINK FIELD
SEATTLE, WA
02/15/20 5:OO PM


WINLESS NO MORE: This game could go either way.  Neither team was impressive in their first game.  But Coach Jim Zorn's team did have a decent game until DC took over the game in the third quarter and slayed the Dragons.  

For Tampa, this game will be without their star QB Aaron Murray, who could be a blessing in disguise as he was not his former self.  But if Tampa utilizes their mobile QB Quentin Flowers, then this could give the Vipers the win.


SEATTLE DRAGONS

(0-1) DALLAS RENEGADES VS L.A. WILDCATS (0-1)


DIGNITY HEALTH PARK
CARSON, CA
02/16/20 3:OO PM


JONES-STOOPS REUNION TOUR BEGINS: Landry Jones will make his XFL debut this week and will provide a huge boost to Bob Stoops and the Renegades offense.  After missing last week with a minor knee injury, the XFL fans weren’t able to see the former Steelers quarterback.  Jones will help The Renegades’ Air Raid offense, and Stoops will look to tap into what Jones did under his guidance at Oklahoma. The Jones-Stoops connection will be lethal, but the Renegades will need get past the L.A. Wildcats this week before we start anointing them the offensive weapon they dream to be. 


DALLAS RENEGADES
PREDICTIONS

(1-0) ST. LOUIS BATTLEHAWKS VS HOUSTON ROUGHNECKS (1-0)


TDECU STADIUM
HOUSTON, TX
02/16/20 6:OO PM


JAMES GAME OF THE WEEK: The Houston Roughnecks dropped the most points in Week 1 than any team.  P.J. Walker looked legit carving up the Wildcats.  Walker aired out four touchdowns and threw for 272 yards.  He’ll look to repeat against the Battlehawks this week.  Judging by the way he threw the ball over the field against the Wildcats, the Roughnecks signal caller could lead his team to a Week 2 win and maybe the number one spot in our XFL Power Rankings.  But they are facing the team that had the biggest upset of the week in the St. Louis Battlehawks, who also have a stud at QB in Jordan Ta’amu.  This is going to be must see football this weekend.
