XFL FanZone’s Week Three Preview and Picks

Week three! There are some intriguing matchups this weekend. Four 1-1 teams look to keep pace with the top of the conferences, and two 0-2 teams look to topple the last remaining unbeatens.

Score predictions for this week:

Seattle 20, Dallas 18 (Overtime)

The Dragons are very banged up, but the home crowd will be what propels Seattle to victory this week. This could also be the first overtime game of the season, as the teams are evenly matched statistically. Hopefully, Seattle can embrace a ‘next man up’ mentality and keep the game close.

DC 30, LA 14

This is shaping up to be an exciting game. There is a high potential for the revenge factor for Defenders Rashad Ross and Anthony Johnson. Both players began the season as Wildcats and were traded to DC. Not to be overlooked, though is former Defender DB Bradley Slyve. Slyve had the deciding pick-6 in a week one win over the Dragons and was promptly traded to LA.

Houston 27, Tampa Bay 14

The Vipers finally get to have a home game and showcase their green uniforms this week. This will likely be the only bright spot for the Vipers, as Houston is just too complete at the moment. Settling on a quarterback and scoring an offensive touchdown would be a success. Quarterback Aaron Murray is out for this game, so Taylor Cornelius or Quinton Flowers will be leading Tampa this weekend.

St. Louis 20, New York 12

St. Louis comes home for the first time this season to a sellout crowd. The St. Louis area has embraced the BattleHawks and should make for a raucous audience. New York is in a bit of a mess, having some quarterback controversy last weekend as Matt McGloin was benched. St. Louis wins this one with superior quarterback play from Jordan Ta’amu.
