Roughnecks on the road homecoming week

XFL Week 3 preview: Roughnecks at Vipers

I would start with QB talk but similar to the NFL, the XFL lacks QBs in the city of Tampa. Taylor Cornelius and Quinton Flowers are the guys you may or… well, probably may NOT want to pull up film on. Highlights? Cornelius threw a PICK… Not a TD on his last play of their game. That a boy!

Run Game: Yeah, kind of. Better than week one.

Summary: The Vipers have managed to put up nine more points than the LA Rams did in the Super Bowl. If you're not good at math, that's a total of 12 points on the season. This team has really struggled to get the offense rolling. Meanwhile, the Houston Roughnecks defense ranks second just behind the DC Defenders.

In his first two games, PJ Walker is 43 of 69 passing for 442 yards. He leads the league with seven touchdowns and only one interception.

Tampa's defense allowed the NY Guardians to put up 23 points in week 1 and Seattle 17 last week. In my opinion, those are two of the more weak teams. Are you getting what I'm throwing out here?

Someone referred to the Vipers as being the team you play during homecoming week in school. I'd say I have to agree. Houston fans sit back and get ready. I expect a huge game from the Roughnecks this week.

Basically, the only entertainment you'll get out of Tampa will be found on CultureMap where I'm sure our dear friend Eric Sandler has a great list of food spots to try!

Tune into ABC at 1 p.m. this Saturday to support your Houston Roughnecks during their on the road "home coming week" against the Tampa Bay Vipers.
