XFL week one has come to an end and did it not disappoint one bit.
It will be interesting to see how this league fares, but Walker has gotten himself off to a hot start in Houston.
The system could incentivize teams to gamble for the highest reward, but not in Week 1. The Guardians didn't allow a touchdown in their 23-3 victory over the Vipers, leading by at least two scores for the game's final 43 minutes and 29 seconds.
New York's defense will have their hands full when they face quarterback Cardale Jones who's 16/26 for 235 yards in the air, a passer rating of 116.7 coupled with 28 on the ground can and will be a threat. Only a handoff to running back Donnel Pumphrey succeeded. "Part of the plan was to get Tyree Jackson in in those situations and add a plus-1 runner, but (Seattle) did a good job at scheming it, bringing pressure off the overside edge and forcing him to pull the ball when there was nowhere to go". Don't count on them anytime soon, but maybe some ambitious U.S. sportsbooks will try later in the season.

Analysts said that GDSA may be able to attract application developers by providing higher exposure. But, if it becomes successful, it could eventually break the smartphone operating system duopoly.

It wasn't the most exciting football, but the XFL succeeded in implementing rule changes that incentivized more kickoff returns, fourth-down attempts and exciting extra point (s) conversions following touchdowns.
Analytics heads on social media agreed that 2-point tries provide the best bang for your buck.
The XFL is one week old which means we can now have a totally normal argument about how the best team in college football would matchup against a team of professional football players. Walker then earned a spot in the XFL with Houston and won the starting job over former Raiders quarterback Connor Cook. This shows that the XFL still has a long way to go to catch up to the NFL.
