XFL 2 .0 kicks off Saturday with countdown to demise already on. Many people weren’t expecting Brock Osweiler to even play this week , but filling in for Ryan Tannehill, he put up 28 points against the outstanding Bears defence and somehow led Miami to an upset victory …

Stud: DC’s passing attack

The Defenders have quite a potent trio on offense. Quarterback Cardale Jones loves to throw to wide receivers Rashad Ross and DeAndre Thompkins, who made his debut Saturday after missing Week 1 with a foot injury. Add in Eli Rogers, who played Saturday with the heaviest of hearts, and you’re looking at a dynamic receiving corps.

That sure did come into focus during the win over New York. Aside from a bad decision by Jones on his first interception of the season, the passing game was humming along beautifully all game long.

Jones finished with 276 yards on 23-of-37 passing, throwing two touchdowns and one interception, while Ross and Thompkins combined on 10 catches for 187 yards and a touchdown.

Here are our studs and duds from Saturday ’ s victory. Although they weren’t in action on Saturday , a few ex-Rams hopefuls were. The XFL kicked off its 2020 season this weekend and in the first two games, a pair of wide receivers with ties to the Rams were having a big impact.

Dud: Matt McGloin’s game and attitude sucked

The Defenders were 1-0 coming into XFL Week 1 in part because Matt McGloin didn’t doom his team. He completed 15-of-29 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown and also ran for a one-yard touchdown last weekend.

Things went a bit differently on Saturday, as McGloin was absolutely brutal for New York, both in terms of his play on the field, and his comments off it. The four-year NFL veteran tossed two awful interceptions, including one of the worst pick-sixes we’ve seen in a long time, and was finally benched.

Then, after being benched in favor of Marquise Williams, McGloin went live on ABC during a sideline interview and blamed everyone but himself for his bad performance.

Stud: Anthony Johnson made an instant impact

Just one day ago, the Los Angeles Wildcats shipped disgruntled defensive end Anthony Johnson across the nation in the first-ever XFL trade. Despite getting barely any sleep following his surprising cross-country move, Johnson suited up for the Defenders and had a huge game, immediately establishing himself as an impact player.

Laine's hat trick helps Jets beat Senators 5-2

  Laine's hat trick helps Jets beat Senators 5-2 WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Patrik Laine scored a hat trick with three power-play goals to propel the Winnipeg Jets to a 5-2 victory against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. It was Laine's eighth career hat trick and gave the Jets points in four straight games after a five-game losing streak.''Gotta find new ways to score. Haven't scored that many goals from my spot,'' said Laine, who has eight goals in his past eight games. ''So just try to change it up a little bit, go to different spots and maybe get those kind of dirty goals and tips, that kind of stuff. So that was a good day.

Week 3 of the NFL preseason is the time when teams usually leave their starters in the game until sometime in the third quarter. It' s usually the last time the starters will have a chance This brings me to the topic at hand: investigating which players were studs and which ones were duds on Saturday .

Johnson didn’t play the entire game but made every snap count. He was credited with 1.5 sacks, made two tackles behind the line and three solo tackles. He also chimed in one of the most debated discussions of our day.

Dud: New York’s defense was railroaded

The Guardians did not live up to their name on Saturday as their defense couldn’t guard anyone. Instead, the Defenders were able to move the ball at will, both in the run and passing games, and could have put up even more points if their offense had done a better job in the red zone.

All told, the New York defense gave up 5.9 yards per play and didn’t register a single sack all game. As a result, the Defenders were able to make big plays all over the field from start to finish.

Stud: Keenan Reynolds to the rescue!

The Seattle Dragons were in a deep funk after falling into a 9-0 hole in the third quarter following a brutal pick-six by quarterback Brandon Silvers. Then, former Navy star Keenan Reynolds, an NCAA record-breaker as a quarterback, showed his skill as a receiver and turned the tide.

XFL Week 1: Studs and duds from Saturday’s action

  XFL Week 1: Studs and duds from Saturday’s action The long-awaited debut of the XFL finally arrived on Saturday as the Seattle Dragons and DC Defenders kicked off Week 1 in style. A bit later in the evening, the Los Angeles Wildcats and Houston Roughnecks closed out the day with a very entertaining game. © Troy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsThe Defenders won their debut over Seattle, 31-19, and the Roughnecks’ offense went off against the Wildcats to win 37-17. The two games on Saturday provided fans with a ton of excitement, along with some of the big hits that the NFL has legislated out of the game.

Reynolds absolutely roasted the Vipers’ secondary, breaking wide open in the middle of the field where even Silvers could find him. The result was a 68-yard touchdown reception that gave the Dragons their first real taste of success in the game. Reynolds finished the game with three catches for 87 yard and that key touchdown — the catalyst that led to the Dragons winning the game.

Dud: Vipers’ QB situation is just sad

The Vipers announced that starting quarterback Aaron Murray would miss Saturday’s game with a foot injury. Many wondered if that might actually be a good thing considering how poorly he played in Week 1. It didn’t take long to realize that the other two quarterbacks on Tampa Bay’s roster, Taylor Cornelius and Quinton Flowers, aren’t any better.

The two backups combined to complete just 19-of-34 passes for 172 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions. They were a wreck. Neither did anything to suggest they could be the long-term answer going forward. So, as bad as Murray was last weekend, if he’s healthy the Vipers will almost certainly turn back to him in Week 3.

Stud: Jacques Patrick lowered the boom

With the passing game on life support, the Vipers needed something to happen on the ground. Thankfully for them, former Florida State star Jacques Patrick brought his A-game and punished the Dragons on a regular basis.

Patrick gained more and more trust from his coaching staff as the game wore on. He ended up being the featured back in the end, toting the rock 14 times for 73 yards with a long run of 21 yards. He also put the rest of the XFL on notice that he’s going to be a problem going forward.
