Dallas Renegades vs. Los Angeles Wildcats
The Renegades went to 1-1 on the season, while the Wildcats fell to 0-2. Despite the loss by the Wildcats, the team played well, and nearly came back from behind and won the game. They couldn’t string together enough offense, however. Landry Jones struggled in the first half but came alive in the second alongside the running game and lead a strong second-half scoring performance.
Renegades – RB Cameron Artis-Payne
Cameron Artis-Payne fell just one yard short of being the first XFL player to eclipse 100 rushing yards in a game. Despite not breaking the century mark, Artis-Payne is the single-game leader for most yards rushing in the XFL’s rebooted history. He also scored two touchdowns in their win over the Wildcats. With that, he became the first player in the league two score two rushing touchdowns in the same game, as well as the only team who has rushed for two touchdowns in a single game.
Wildcats – WR Nelson Spruce
Nelson Spruce does it again in week two. Spruce caught six receptions, for 89 yards and two touchdowns. He now has 193 yards receiving for the year and has become one of a handful of players who made plays in both weeks one and week two. At this rate he’s not going to be a slot receiver in the NFL, he’d be a starter.
Wildcats – LB Tre’ Williams
The linebacker from Los Angeles stepped up in a big way. The Auburn product had seven tackles total and helped keep the Renegades discombobulated throughout the first half. Ultimately he couldn’t help the defense stop Landry Jones and the Renegades but he continues to stay consistent could be a potential guy in the Browns linebacking corp.
Those who stepped back
There wasn’t anyone from week one that fell off. The Dallas Renegades didn’t register top-three stand outperformer from last week, as the St. Louis BattleHaws too all three slots. As for the Wildcats, only Spruce cracked the top three against the Roughnecks.
