As we’ve reported the XFL is holding their first two preseason games today. The first game up was a preview of the inaugural XFL game — pitting the DC Defenders against the Seattle Dragons.
The first touchdown (sort-of) in XFL history goes to BJ Daniels connecting with WR Mikah Holder, putting the Dragons up 6-0. One of the innovations the XFL is bringing to the game is the different types of point after touchdown options. With the first touchdown the Dragons opted for a 1-point conversion, which was successful
The Dragons didn’t stop there, within the same quarter they gained three extra points via a successful field goal attempt from Cole Tracy. Going into the 2nd quarter the Dragons held a comfy 10-0 lead.
The game ended with the Defenders coming from behind for the win, ending it 21-16. If you’re a Dragons fan, I wouldn’t be too worried. These are just preseason games. The coaches likely aren’t running their best schemes yet, rather doing one last player assessment before they cut down the rosters from 70 to a 52.
The next game up is the St. Louis BattleHawks taking on the Dallas Renegades. We’ll keep you posted as information comes out from the game.
