Seattle Dragons Latest

The Dragons played a physical game last Saturday in St. Louis but ultimately fell 23-16 to the Battlehawks to drop to 1-3 on the season. Former South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels replaced Brandon Silvers under center and completed 5-of-10 pass attempts for 100 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also rushed seven times for 64 yards.

Houston Roughnecks Latest

The Roughnecks continue to be the class of the XFL reboot, beating the Renegades 27-20 last week in Dallas. Potential league MVP P.J. Walker completed 25-of-41 pass attempts for 239 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while Nick Holley caught eight-of-10 targets for 97 yards and a score.

Game Prediction

Daniels gave the Dragons a spark last week but ultimately, Seattle doesn’t have enough offense to compete with Houston. Out of the eight teams in the league, Seattle ranks 7th in yards per game at 260.5, are seventh in average passing yards at 156.0 and have only scored 64 points on the season, which also rank seventh. If the New York Guardians weren’t the league, Seattle would be dead last in most key offensive categories. The Dragons might hang with the Roughnecks in the first half but eventually, Houston should open things up and eventually cover this number.
