Tampa Bay Vipers vs. Seattle Dragons
The Dragons get their first win of the season but quarterback Brandon Silvers played terribly. Because of his poor play, talent like Austin Proehl couldn’t produce, but they battled as a team and got just enough to eke out a win. The Dragons move to 1-1, while the Vipers drop to 0-2.
Dragons – WR Keenan Reynolds
Reynolds only had three receptions but still hit 87 yards and had the teams lone touchdown. Thanks to the combined effort of the Dragons defense, the team was able to ride that lone touchdown reception to their first win.
Dragons – LB Steven Johnson
Steven Johnson had a big day, with ten tackles and two for a loss. The team’s defense matched the intensity of the other Seattle team, the Seahawks, and was lead by the tenacity of Johnson’s play. Johnson now has 18 tackles through two games, with four for a loss. He’s showing he can be a viable NFL option if you’re on a budget.
Vipers – S Marcelis Branch
The Vipers safety had a standout game. Marcelis Branch had a wicked 12 tackles, two for a loss and a sack. The combined effort of the Vipers wasn’t enough for the team to get a win but he now has 17 combined tackles on the season after leading the defense in tackles for two straight weeks.
Those who stepped back
Two of last week’s top guys failed to step up in this game. Tampa Viper’s Daniel Williams didn’t do much, catching three passes for 22 yards. Fellow standout performer and arguably the Dragons best week one playmaker, Austin Proehl W was hurt by the team’s poor performance at quarterback. He was targeted four times, but only caught one pass, for a loss of one.
