Highlights, game recaps, top players, news

We’ve come to the end of the XFL regular season and Week 10 brought exciting matchups from both the North and South divisions as we prepare for the playoffs next week.

The Arlington Renegades secured the last playoff spot in the South Division after the San Antonio Brahmas lost to the DC Defenders on Saturday.

In the North Division, the Seattle Sea Dragons claimed last place in the North Division after defeating the Vegas Vipers on Sunday.

The tiebreaker resulted from the combined ranking of points and points allowed of all XFL teams in which the Sea Dragons place fifth versus the Battlehawks who place seventh.

The South Division Championship between the Renegades and the Roughnecks will be played on April 29 in Houston. The North Division Championship between the Defenders and the Sea Dragons will be played in DC on April 30th.

All the highlights from week 10 are below.

This weekend’s games


The Battlehawks left no doubt about their dominant win over the Guardians after scoring 53 points, the most in an XFL game this season.

They were led by quarterback AJ McCarron, who had a season-high 420 yards and six touchdown passes. Wide receiver Hakeem Butler had two touchdowns and 164 receiving yards, the most in a game this season.

Guardians quarterback Quinten Dormady had 188 yards and threw for two touchdowns, but his offense remained scoreless in the third quarter, allowing the Battlehawks to move away with the lead.

The Brahmas are eliminated from the postseason after a disappointing one-point loss to the defenders.

DC started strong and led 19-11 at halftime. But the Brahmas started a comeback in the fourth quarter, taking their first and only lead at 5:16 in the game. Running back Jacques Patrick had a two-yard run into the end zone and quarterback Jack Coan threw a pass to receiver Jonathan Hilliman for two extra points, giving San Antonio a 28-22 lead.

But the defenders reclaimed that lead with less than three minutes into the game when quarterback Jordan Ta’amu broke in for a four-yard touchdown and the extra point.

With 32 seconds left, Brahmas’ kicker John Parker Romo attempted a 53-yard field goal that ended up not being good. The Defenders eliminated the Bahamas from the postseason, improved their record to 9-1 and will face the Sea Dragons next weekend in the North Division Championship, which they will host in DC

The Roughnecks finish the regular season 6-0 in the South Division after defeating the Renegades 25-9.

The Renegades hit three field goals in the first half but remained scoreless the rest of the game from Houston, who extended their second-half lead with two field goals and a pick-six from linebacker Tavante Beckett.

Roughnecks running back Jeremy Cox had a rushing touchdown and a season-high 120 rushing yards, the most for a Roughnecks player this season.

Despite the loss, the Renegades earned second place in the South League as a result of Saturday’s Brahmas loss. They will face the Roughnecks again next weekend in the South Division Championship hosted by Houston.
