The Los Angeles Wildcats host the Dallas Renegades on Sunday in a Week 2 matchup of teams looking to avoid an 0-2 start to the inaugural season. LA was thumped by Houston in Week 1 in one of the more one-sided matchups of the opening weekend. Dallas was a disappointment in losing as a decent favorite against St. Louis thanks to diminished depth at the quarterback position
The final injury reports are out and both quarterback positions are worth a look in Week 2. LA quarterback Josh Johnson is questionable with a thigh injury that sidelined him last weekend. Johnson did not practice in Week 1, but was able to get in limited work in Week 2. This is big because last week’s starter, Chad Kanoff, was injured in the loss and is out this week with a shoulder and head injury. Jalan McClendon would likely start if Johnson can’t go.
For Dallas, the big news is the likely debut of Landry Jones. He was active but only an emergency option last week due to a previous knee injury. He was a full participant in practice this week and is listed as probable. Philip Nelson was unable to get much going last week. He completed 33 of 42 passes, but only averaged five yards per attempt, and that’s just not going to get it done in this league. Jones would be a huge upgrade.
The Houston Roughnecks, the local franchise of the XFL football league, won its first game Feb. 8.
Thousands of local football fans descended on the University of Houston’s TDECU Stadium Saturday to watch the upstart league’s inaugural matchup in the Bayou City. The Roughnecks ultimately emerged victorious, besting the Los Angeles Wildcats in a 37-17 win.
In total, 17,815 people attended the first Roughnecks game, according to a Roughnecks team spokesperson. In their second matchup, the Roughnecks will take on the St. Louis BattleHawks at TDECU Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 16.
The fact that the Houston Roughnecks had never played a game before didn’t stymie the fervor of Houston’s gridiron enthusiasts — many fans in attendance already sported Roughnecks gear. Roughnecks fans filled out most of the lower bowl at the 40,000-seat TDECU Stadium, and many attendees stood to watch the game on the concourse level.
The quality of the football play itself was high-caliber and competitive — Roughnecks quarterback P.J. Walker threw for 272 yards and four touchdowns in the win, including a 50-yard touchdown pass to receiver Cam Phillips in the first quarter.
The Houston Roughnecks are led by head coach June Jones. Brian Cooper, formerly senior associate athletic director at Rice University and president of the NBA G-League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers, was hired as president of the Roughnecks in May 2019.
On Sunday, Feb. 9, the Dallas Renegades lost their first game to the St. Louis BattleHawks 15-9. A crowd of 17,206 attended the first Renegades game at Globe Life Park in Arlington, according to the Dallas Business Journal — the Houston Business Journal’s sister publication.
The XFL football league is the brainchild of professional wrestling mogul Vince McMahon. Outside of Houston, the XFL has franchises in Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington, D.C. The XFL is headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut.
Tickets for the St. Louis BattleHawks home-opener next weekend are already scarce, the team said Friday.
A team spokesperson said most of the available tickets are in the premium range for suites or all-inclusive packages.
“The BattleHawks could not be more excited and appreciative of the support from our fans, who are proving, once again, that St. Louis has an incredible pride and passion for sports in our community,” said Brian Stull, BattleHawks director of communications and media relations.
The BattleHawks will take on the New York Guardians on Feb. 23 at The Dome at America’s Center. There are 28,000 seats in The Dome’s lower bowl.
A check on Ticketmaster’s website shows the least expensive tickets are $90 each. Those are “verified tickets,” tickets resold at a cost above face value. Some tickets are being resold for $144 each.
Dal Renegades vs La Wildcats Stream | Online Watch Free XFL Football 2020 IN TV : The team won its first game on Feb. 9 against the Dallas Renegades 15-9. The next game is scheduled for Feb. 16 against the Houston Roughnecks.
Houston Roughnecks WR Kahlil Lewis’ solid XFL debut has been overlooked largely because of what happened on one particular play.
Just plays into the game, seconds before the snap on a one-point conversion, the Roughnecks receiver was spotted vomiting during the FOX broadcast.
“Oh, my gosh, everybody keeps hitting me up about that,” Lewis told ESPN’s Sarah Barshop. “I ran down the field when Cam scored and I was screaming. I caught myself screaming too hard. I was like, ‘Oh, calm down,’ but it was already coming back up.
“So I was just trying to hold it in. That’s why it all came out at once.”
Lewis says he threw up after he chugged a whole bottle of Gatorade just before running down the field to celebrate with WR Cam Phillips, who hauled in a 50-yard touchdown pass.
“That is all. It wasn’t nerves. None of that, out of shape,” Lewis added. “Nothing everybody’s been coming to me with; it’s none of that at all.”
Lewis’ team would go on to defeat the Los Angeles Wildcats 37-17. Presumably Lewis will be more careful of how much Gatorade he drinks when his team battles the St. Louis Battlehawks this weekend.
The St. Louis BattleHawks have traded cornerback Charles James II and offensive lineman Juwann Bushell-Beatty to the Houston Renegades for cornerback Robert Nelson.
The former Charleston Southern was a late-round addition to the BattleHawks roster, while Bushell-Beatty was picked in the ninth round of the offensive lineman section. Nelson was a second-rounder during phase four. Aaron Wilson had the news first, and James later tweeted his excitement to be heading back to Houston as well. The rest of the deal was later disclosed on the xfl.com transaction page.
While starting for Memphis he logged 20 tackles and broke up five passes, including four against the high-flying Orlando Apollo’s offense.
Bushell-Beatty came late to the sport of football, with a Michigan assistant coach, then his highs school football coach poaching him off of the basketball team. Beatty went undrafted after a solid senior year at Michigan, but spent time during the preseason with Washington and Dallas. Beatty will provide more size and athleticism for the Roughnecks.
