Can XFL maintain momentum from solid first weekend?
The XFL neared the halfway mark of their rebooted first season over the weekend with all eight teams trying to either break away from the pack or stay within striking distance of making the playoffs.
The Houston Roughnecks managed to remain as the only undefeated team with a narrow victory over the Dallas Renegades while the Tampa Bay Vipers finally picked up their first win of the season.
The DC Defenders lost their second straight game and dropped to second place outright in the XFL East division thanks to the St. Louis BattleHawks picking up a win. Houston’s win puts the team up two games in the XFL West.
