The Line: DC Defenders -4 -- Over/Under: 35
The Dallas Renegades and DC Defenders meet Sunday in XFL action at Audi Field.
The Dallas Renegades need a win here to rebound from back-to-back losses. The Dallas Renegades have won their first two road games. Landry Jones is completing 70 percent of his passes for 784 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Jones and Philip Nelson have combined for 10 interceptions this season. Donald Parham and Flynn Nagel have combined for 524 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Lance Dunbar has 26 receptions. The Dallas Renegades ground game is averaging 91.6 yards per contest, and Cameron Artis-Payne leads the way with 241 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 20.4 points and 318.8 yards per game. Asantay Brown leads the Dallas Renegades with 28 tackles, Tegray Scales has one sack and Derron Smith has one interception.
The DC Defenders look for a win after splitting their last four games. The DC Defenders won their first three home games. Cardale Jones is completing 54 percent of his passes for 674 yards, four touchdowns and seven interceptions. Jones has zero touchdown passes and six interceptions in his last three games. Rashad Ross and Eli Rogers have combined for 357 receiving yards and one touchdown while Khari Lee has eight receptions. The DC Defenders ground game is averaging 130.2 yards per contest, and Jhurell Pressley leads the way with 190 yards on 42 carries. Defensively, DC is allowing 17.8 points and 315.4 yards per game. Jonathan Celestin leads the DC Defenders with 32 tackles, Jayson Bromley has one sack and Jameer Thurman has one interception.
The Dallas Renegades have been sloppy on both sides of the ball more times than not, as the offense can't take care of the football and the defense can't get off the field. The DC Defenders have been dominant at home this season and need to take advantage of games like this if they're going to spectate themselves in what has become a highly competitive east division. I just haven't been all that impressed with the Dallas Renegades through five games. Give me the DC Defenders and the reasonable number.
