In the XFL, we will see Seattle Dragons at Houston Roughnecks.
Finally, the Seattle Dragons changed their quarterbacks. Brandon Silvers has been inefficient the whole season but he was starting every game. He is completing only 52% of his passes for 539 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. Even though B.J. Daniels is not the best replacement, he offers something different. He is a much more mobile quarterback and he finished last game with 84 rushing yards while also completing 50% of his passes for 100 yards. Seattle is also relying heavily on RBs Kenneth Farrow and Ja’Quan Gardner who are combining for 239 yards on the ground and 0 touchdowns.
I expected the Roughnecks to finally get an L last week but it did not happen again. Houston continues to be unbeaten and it is currently standing at 4-0 in the middle of the season. Surprisingly, P.J. Walker has the best stats in the entire XFL league with 62% completion of his throws for 987 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. RB James Butler is also doing a hell of a job from the backfield, rushing for 169 yards on 34 attempts for 2 touchdowns.
Houston’s last few games were very close. The Roughnecks won them all within a single possession and even though I believe they will win this one as well, 12.5 points are too much for them to cover. Seattle are well-coached and their new QB will certainly give them a boost.
