What's going on, Everybody.
Anthony here from Unwrap Sports Appreciate everyone.
Tune in on this Sunday night.
Hope everyone has had a good weekend.
Another weekend's coming up close always goes by so quickly, but I hope everyone enjoyed their time off.
It's getting ready for another big week.
It's been a big week and a big weekend in sports.
We obviously have March Madness starting to roll on.
We're seeing some teams getting there, securing their invite for the tournament.
Obviously, some great basketball games going on today and yesterday and Friday, Honestly, to LeBron James has been probably talk of the town all weekend long between his dominant because of his dominant performances from both the game against the Bucks and then today's L A matchup against the Clippers.
On this one, we'll talk a little XFL XFL games have been pretty good so far.
They were good last week as well, and then this week, continuing that consistency of having great games all weekend long.
I think the one when I was really a blowout with the Guardians ready, Gage one.
But then again, Landry Jones wasn't playing.
It's more filling Nelson action today, and other than that most again have been pretty good with defensive stalwart in that first game today.
We had a great comeback win from the undefeated Houston Roughnecks against Seattle on Saturday.
But let's start here with the Tampa Bay Vipers.
L A Wild CAT scan.
This is a game I'm walking this game that said right in front of me.
That's continuing to distract me.
And so far, so good.
It's a second quarter right now.
A 28 left to go is if you bet on L. A.
You know, you're not feeling too good if you bet on the under your feeling feeling all right, not really giving you a lot of room to work with there in the second half.
But L A certainly has momentum right now. Sam.
They just got a holding call nonetheless.
Super impressive, Obviously, while I hope for coming coming into the season, the new lead for them with Aaron Murray at the helm and that necessarily wasn't the case after a blowout loss against the Guardians, then the next couple weeks that have table Cornelius with the little bit equipment flowers sprinkled in there, making close games, losing it to go on, win big last week against the Fenders and now again have another weeds in that one and three really needed a win last week.
Got their win and not looking good again.
And a lot of that has to do with not only Taylor Cornelius being a good game manager, making the right decisions, not turning the ball over, but also that running game that our offensive line has been impressive between Davion Smith and Jacqueline's Patrick Right now, David Smith 11 carries, 35 yards jobless.
Patrick's just carries 25 yards in touchdown.
Back to back weeks would touch them, and they look good.
They really had to do much of the year because they've been so good running the ball on the ground that continuing that on this drive, they not only take a lot of time off the clock between long drives and and continuously curtain converting on first down, but also just be being able to gain the lead and then given their defense of time to rest.
You know, we've already seen it today.
That's really worked out in their favor.
A couple turnovers against Josh Johnson.
They're picking a fumble and ultimately 10 day looks like they're starting to turn this thing around.
Continue to update you guys throughout this game.
If there's any big plays or scores, injuries, anything momentum shifting in the game, I will continue guys up there.
Ah, right now on the L a side of thing, it'll turn up.
Finally, here you always have the things They were down. 17 nothin.
Josh Johnson a part of the best passing offense and this XFL league was able to excuse me.
They were able to.
He was able to throw a pass to Jordan Smallwood on a 54 yard catch and run their strike.
The Smallwood threw right behind him in the perfect spot to get him away from the defender.
Smallwood did the rest gone down with one and then easy touchdown for dwarf hair.
She's got seven carries.
10 yards will struggle a bit from the ball There.
Also the one touchdown well as well Miss Traffic bribe A couple times in this game.
I think that's kind of hurt them, but hopefully not to worry about Johnson.
Therefore, about 50 72 yards came in the centre, having a little trouble right now and then He threw the pick earlier, but he's calm, cool and collective.
Obviously played a lot of years in the NFL for about a bunch of teams, and I think he's okay.
Uh, as far as the other games, I guess we'll start from today's game earlier between the battle hawks and the fenders.
See if a big plate comes here.
Oh, that's a touchdown.
Jalen Tolliver, Nice passing back, begins on Tampa Bay with the score, and he just dunked on the goal post. You gotta love that.
Can do that anymore. 16 yard touchdown reception.
Big plate. I'll.
I like Jalen Tom.
Liberalize baller for them on Cornelius doing this thing right there, rolling out to his left a little bit.
Cholera gets behind the linebacker there and just easy pitch in cats there, however, slide region for the incentive for the ball.
Maybe the easiest I say it is that they definitely made it look easy.
It looks like they're going for one now.
Have you guys on today's game between the battle offs and defenders.
Oh, what a receiver screen there and easily got in Dane Williams for one 24 6 right now everyone he bet on the under is not feeling too good.
Everybody including me, mostly because I also better in l a thought of a bet on the Vipers.
Really? Which I did now by way might come back after a tough loss last week, not the case.
But, you know, maybe get a game out of this.
We just don't get the under ballsy.
Now he goes, became a baroness.
I look and give them super happy for them as well.
Okay, The defenders of Battle Hawks game now This game was kind of interesting.
Started off bad for Cardale Jones over to threw the interception on a deep pass and got the *****ing just turning the ball over. Too much.
Too many interceptions.
He's obviously lost.
The pastoral games incomes.
Tyree Jackson There.
Nine of 14 39 yards and a touchdown.
Third touchdown right away, but really don't have to rely on him too much in terms of his throwing arm.
Really, They got it done on the ground.
Let's see where that five guys over 25 yards.
Russian Darrel Presley, 15 carries one of seven on the Brown Pumphrey, 15 carries 37 yards But Presley, Man, I know that's what he could do, saw him play last year and they and good to see that he got his.
I got a good game.
Wonder if that was, well, Eli Rogers.
Tomkins had 28 on one run, so fenders looked good.
I got a much needed win there without doing it through the air, mostly doing that behind that defense.
Who? Yeah, I think that's a really impressive defense as well.
Didn't start off nearly the greatest.
I gave up a lot of yards of the ground and imagines 13 carry 70 yards.
Christine Michael, 12 carry 69 yards and if we don't want to see that, but we're able to make enough stops.
Jordan Te'o made 15 of 25 174 yards Touchdown stop picks, really just big big ups of the D C defenders.
They're in this game really doing everything they possibly can.
Two made big plays and ultimately stop.
This should lose battle Hawks team.
That's really good through the 1st 4 or five weeks here.
Anthony Johnson had really good game there.
I was all really defensive front, had a really good game as well.
Got to the quarterback How many times this? 1234 times in this game compared to just one for ST Louis.
Right now, by the way.
I drive him, but we'll always driving.
Yeah, but yeah, big time went for the defenders about Hawkes.
Follow three and two defenders, improved at three and two and also end a two game skid.
So that was super needed for the D.
****her where they go with quarterback, I guess you just move on with Sorry Jesse didn't turn the ball over.
Showed he was a threat both on the ground and through the air.
Was pretty accurate.
64% completion percentage.
And, you know, he was a guy who had a lot of problems, and I drive the fight.
Scouts were pretty pretty high.
I am walking black and you know now he decided he was with the Buffalo Bill.
Oh, gosh, John's almost third pick.
He was with the Buffalo Bills for a little bit of getting released.
Chicken, taking a chance here in the XFL now has a chance to really prove himself so tired, if you entirely Jackson do for D.
I've imagined that go through, go on with Sam cartels just turning the ball over so much too many interceptions and it's got a fresh air, a pep Hamilton us, so we'll see what they do.
Just monitor that.
Now we'll see which direction the fenders try to go here.
Saturday game. Let's go with the first game of the week.
That was probably the best one.
Unless you know L.
I tried to make something.
Here's a try to convert third and eight here, which, actually, they dio nice to play their first down. There.
Need points before the half, For sure.
Um, Seattle and Houston.
Obviously, Houston's the undefeated team.
Seattle has been up and down this week.
They started with B J.
They were 14. Nothing in this game. B. J. Daniels.
It was like he might be the answer.
Just between him.
Run and thrown about 14 22 114 yards.
No touchdowns, No pigs.
Also had 30 yards a couple touchdowns on the ground, and he just looks like he gives a lot of sparked.
The offense gives him a dual threat option as well.
And you feel that this office is more lively with B.
J. Daniels at the helm.
Then Brain is over, and it's good to see that Daniel's got his chance to play his L.
Just had a big run play there, like that was a reverse, but I just thought that more of a chance to be dead and he finally got his first career start was up.
You know, a dual threat there at the University of South Florida played receiver.
A lot of the NFL now gets indicative chance in a F because of injury with the Salt Lake style.
Now he gets his chance here, Seattle and and look good.
You know, the Houston office is just stellar.
Walker looks like the MVP of the league.
Him or Camp Phillips. This is his teammate there.
Walker was ableto leave this team back.
You this team undefeated despite throwing a couple interceptions, He was 27 of 38 3 to 51 yards, three touchdowns.
You know, complimentary run game, but we had a couple of touchdowns.
Andre Williams leading the rush offense with 54 yards.
And then came Phillips, another, another great game by him.
10 catches, 122 yards.
They probably have the best receiving corps here in the XFL between Phillips and then Sam Mobley, who had six for 95.
Make Holley four of 72 a touch on he's kind of guy that could do a lot of things for you.
You know they have Blake, Jackson, Khalil, Lewis.
I mean, a lot of guys that can make plays.
And, you know, I don't at this point who Who's gonna be the 1st 1 to take down Houston? Somebody's got to do what I feel like, but, you know, maybe they try to run through the season undefeated.
Kind of like Trilogy and the Big Three Did you know the first.
And now you're a season of that league.
Uh, but moving forward, you know, Seattle, I think.
What's the record now? Yes.
You have us record.
Want to say there too? One in four.
If you don't know.
I think pay attention in Seattle lot. Start to see them.
So you lost one.
So they lost against Houston.
Do you see Dallas losing the battle Hawks as well? I believe they did.
Not sitting at one and four.
But you know, at least you have that win, and you still have a get up.
You know, the other slim at this point, obviously.
But, you know, at least have one went under their belt and you don't stay here over five.
Yeah, I lose it.
Last week, I thought they'd beat the renegades for some reason.
Now 24 total. That's right.
You know, I was thinking anyways, see, at least looking like they're on the right path in terms of offensively next week, but have l A To it might be a battle of it.
Might be with the playoffs on the line already at that point in the season, five games left.
You know, both teams could be one and four at that point, but we'll see what happens there.
Um, and then the final game review here between the Guardians and the renegades, the Dallas is actually the favorites going into this one, which I was a little surprised by seeing us the quarterback with Phillip Nelson and not Landry Jones, and we saw what sort of Nelson did you know for them? Lastly, we saw what he did for them in a F last year.
I mean, for the San Diego Flee wasn't nearly like that.
Impressive and again, just not really able to do enough.
I mean, 57% completion percentage and a large sample size past about 28 of 49 just 210 yards.
3 yards an attempt, two interceptions.
Just not a good day.
Overall artist pain.
With only 25 yards, they really didn't run the ball.
There was no bounce in the game because they were trailing for so long.
On the flip side of this, New York's had in the right direction would see New York City.
You're one last begins L A.
After a week winning week wine.
Then they would drop the next two games.
You know, they were both bad games, obviously between, uh, McGloin and then trying marquees Williams here.
They're a little bit breath really didn't get his first action with the New York Guardians until that into that ST Louis game, where you led them on a touchdown and now to winnow unreleased Perez, 16 of 30 229 yard touchdown interception.
Excuse me, by the way, but ultimately just a guy as long as the defense is doing their port, which obviously it looks like they did today stop in Dallas from scoring too many points.
Uh, I'm not turning the ball over.
They're gonna be ableto well with Perez.
It's for president at that one interception.
But you know, a good day between the key, right? Let's get the balls.
You guys like Pearson, you know, McKell.
You should be getting the ball more.
And then Victor on the ground and eyes looked really good.
58 yards on 15 carries today.
So guardians heading in the right direction.
I'm not, like, super sold on what they're doing.
They're now saying that two or three.
Yes, but at least for as again, something last year.
And I know I'm taking a blast from the past, but with Louise press, I got super excited about him last year.
You know, a lot of people did watching him with the Birmingham iron, then getting off to a hot start.
Ultimately for him to kind of crumble lovely for their good defensive.
The record was a little bit better than you know, how their play was on the field leaf from the offensive standpoint, But, um, get surprised to do enough today beating a renegade team and really getting this team back in the right direction.
Actually, that makes him three and two.
Goodness, not three and two in the league, and I kind of look at the look at the standings on here s O training.
Take Trey McBride Her, which is not good for L. A.
That's not a good look for are not gonna be good for that in terms of Come back up.
So right now, I think Lewis, New York and D.
C are all sitting at three and two and Tampa Bake.
It really needs to win this one, which, like it was like their position, although Josh Johnson sitting here in the red zone right now trying to take them back.
But they're really a win to get two and three.
Oh, well, gotta catch.
That ball was a little stressed On the flip side, he seems really running around away with that side.
See how warm and four and then l a trying toe move the two and three, actually.
Yeah, douses two on three.
So I'll try to make himself two and three and sitting in second place.
You know, what I don't know is the playoffs.
How are you? Does anyone in the stream know how playoffs are? Good timing, accent.
So I certainly don't talk to teams of East Division.
Oh, what a cash touchdown l a The Kwan Hampton caught that ball.
He moss it over that guy just a dark by Josh Johnson and announced 24 to 12 Making things interesting here.
If you're the under, you're not looking good for you guys at 36 points already.
And if you did the under and l a parlay, it's pretty much a rat for us.
Unfortunately, I mean, get down bigger is not helpful.
Depart, Hampton Supercooled o f guy as well.
Uh, yeah, as far as that's still standing like it looks like that's the least.
It's gonna be hard to the size.
It looks like at least one, maybe two really good teams are best teams in the league could get left out of the playoffs.
While you know Houston's obviously the best team that they got easy win and that's produced for I lie now it's 24 14.
So there was a walk in two point Virgin.
I was like, Houston is probably gonna be the 1st 1 to clinch, but they just completely crumble.
But you know, Dallas, L.
A and see at all really could be fined for spot that we love.
You might not think that deserve, but, you know, that's the way they decided to put it up. So we'll see.
We'll see how this thing plays out on awesome good game to gammy of it again.
That was like, It's gonna if not, at least be close.
You know, these were getting some really good big time plays here.
Watch some higher real type plays and big catch by the corner.
Hampton, with this team down now only 10 and now they're talking to one call to the stand.
Well, keep the rolling.
Ain't nothing new, Gary.
One catch nine yards and touchdowns.
This man, it's up.
This name is high.
Kwan Hamptons. A monster.
He's huge So now 1 50 left ago, Tampa Bay Probably put some more points on the board.
Here, toe that cushion is starting to dwindle a little bit here.
But I've been a great day of XFL asset value.
No, really, I'm starting to feel a little disappointed.
You know, between weeks two and three products continue to look better and better than a week after week.
Big, big shout out to do Quinn flowers would just returning the kick.
And he probably should never do that again.
That, uh, as far in the XFL Kudo sedan.
You know, they said that C l should've got shot yesterday and the rest and read that right. They came out.
We're transparent about what should happen.
And I apologize and just continue and make this league great and enjoyable and find him and making incredible so big shot to them.
I want to wrap this up here as it is about to go.
Let's just watch her end of the half will see how Tampa Bay finishes off five line.
Right now I like plus six and 1/2 whoever tipped the plus nine and 1/2 hours feeling pretty good there.
So we'll see what happens here.
Just shown what the coaches were calling.
Looking, seeing, evaluating.
Oh, they're still gonna run the ball.
We're just gonna run in the half pressure with humans left.
Ah, the clock starts.
The thing to reset the ball when someone's down in two minutes left in the second and fourth quarters was it was like l a called a time out.
So, like all the time out, for some reason, order nine.
Now I like to get the ball back.
Some huge person points on the board.
A lot of quitting flowers today.
Obviously, it was like he was asking for trade after last week, didn't play Tampa wins, big comes back quitting flowers.
And you look so good.
Think he ah reacted too quickly.
Who stewards and nobody thereafter Pie forth and 90 no.
A year comes L A guys.
So now we get a chance to see if l A can really cut this thing down because secondly, they get nine points.
I don't let me down. Warrant.
Oh, ever fought that plant there Oh, oh, for our Miller and Tanner McEvoy going out of a little bit.
There's a flag on employees that might hit the punter.
I can't really hear what they're saying.
See if they call Ineligible player.
I'm kicking team down the field.
All right, All right.
Now, John shots and gets the lead l a Down the field, we'll see what they can do is see what they can put together is a big time driving up big time drive.
You going deep on first play? Only made the kitsch.
No, I mean 55 seconds left.
Just see you don't rule out l a man, that was My stream is continuing toe Nice up here, man.
What? It throws out by over the top of two defenders trailing him on his back and could have walked into over the shoulder Catch.
Big play there on the best.
Passing up on the best passing offense.
Max F l right here.
Led by Diaz Johnson.
See what they do here.
So, yeah, let the clock run 41 seconds on the nine yard line Now for being on their own 40 something for the end zone touchdown.
Just like that to place.
That's all it took.
24 to 2034 seconds till left.
Oh, man, if your time of day You can't let that happen now there goes the over, by the way.
Only need one foot. That's F l.
Yeah, well, so they're going for over to I would go for two every time it's on the five yard line.
Why would anyone go for one off jump ball? Fade route? It is called.
Well, it's all offensive.
Past your fears, your defense.
It was like a push off from offense, but I'll hold some teeth offense, have push off for sure tight and was high.
First I get 24 20 though come, it wasn't that bad.
I would push out here 24 20.
Now take the pain's gonna get the ball.
That's let's see if they troublesome points now.
I don't know why they were trying to run the ball star.
No, it stops but could stop by Josh Johnson.
Why does not worry? Never worried.
Always calm, Always mellow level had c you know, one thing I feel like I haven't seen lately any football game.
Whether it be the XFL, NFL unteachable, I haven't seen a kickoff return for a touchdown was just, like live on TV or even in person of the game.
See Ryan Davis on the return here.
Terrible blocking my Campa status.
Still got a good return.
Their past 30 he's gonna get 1500 yards on the late hit like it's easy by.
Chris, you gotta make a move now.
So left one time out of all Stop while the resetting I got to I got to Who? The big foul, though.
Things really hurting themselves here Mean like Table Bay giving up a touchdown within the last minute on two plays.
And then I lied just with the stupid only hit in the matter of bounds.
As he's going out about You can't let that I just heard your team.
You really want to tackle that bad, bro? All right, Cornelis, now 41 they're still running the ball.
I don't get that at all.
Baylor's That's so stupid to me.
So great job now.
Could be so conservative.
I know your best shrink is running the ball, but you gotta put it in.
Courtney's his hand.
He's shown that he at least throw a little bit.
Got great receivers about my boy.
Stretch out there is an active today, but, however, Dan Williams Reese Horn's gonna get a receiving corps.
Really like 13 though.
I like I like when they're running the ball debut on spent them.
Oh, he's hurt planes over for my dress.
Quiet. Two of 32.
I've been rushing better Tomboy Terri and full stand man have a great running back *****.
So you're having a Patrick here? I think I hit my back, maybe.
Oh, twisted and crunch stops.
I What, ladies? Oh, gosh, said Patrick's.
Okay, but that's seven for 23 1 touchdown catch for 20 yards.
Now started up false and get some carries.
Now Meili Snow, now over, just dropped out.
It could have been gone.
Go third and 12.
Now 16 seconds of Ellie gets the ball back.
There's no doubt in my mind that makes you think that they are going to try to capitalize on that It's like I've got temporary runs the ball here because Tampa that they run.
Oh, they got a big run up Davey on Smith.
So last stops nine seconds.
Jeez, they fight out now.
They want Spike.
Now run upfield.
Get everyone said check.
So let's see what they do now.
I guess you gotta take a shot at the end zone here.
You only make sense of your own stuff to call my dad.
Get around by Dave. Announcement through discussing.
But in these these ah, complementary football, these are They're going for the field goal.
Oh, straight up, huh? Same engineering before.
Did you get a rope that seems odd to go for a 57 yarder? I mean, I know there's no time outs left.
You have 20 of time to stop the clock.
We're trying t great.
So they had one second of the offense comes back out.
Well, yeah, I guess that makes the difference.
What? They're shocking here inside the 40.
Oh, it's like a pick.
I have no idea what happened.
Why should I pick? You should have stopped that drive there to send off left.
And we Franks is gonna come on for a 57 yard.
Our guests of this, this is the longest and accept all history.
Oh oh, short like it was on Tori it.
I just need more on the line drive.
I thought 1/2 ends 24 20 Tampa Bay.
