Austin Bruhl: Playing in the XFL with my dad on coach is special

Battlehawks WR Austin Proehl talks about playing in the XFL with his father, Ricky, as his receivers coach.

From last-minute touchdowns to exploding stars, the XFL’s Week 3 had it all.

Saturday night kicked off the weekend slate with some late drama as the Seattle Seattle Dragons passed the Vegas Vipers to move to 1-2 on the season. With only 1:12 left on the clock in the fourth quarter, the Sea Dragons’ quarterback Ben DiNucci found Josh Gordon for a 65-yard touchdown to crown Seattle’s winning comeback. The touchdown reception was Gordon’s second of the game and third of the season as he remains one of the best offensive weapons in the league.

The DC Defenders were the first team to achieve three wins this season as the Arlington Renegades edged out the Orlando Guardians 10-9 in a defensive struggle.

Here are the highlights of this week.

All XFL games will be broadcast live on ESPN+ and are available on the ESPN family of networks (ABC, ESPN, and FX).

Games this weekend

The DiNucci-Gordon connection was shown again this weekend. The pair connected for two scores, including a last-minute touchdown that sealed the win for the Sea Dragons. Gordon finished with a career high of two touchdowns and 118 receiving yards while DiNucci threw for 377 yards and four scores in the win.

In a winless battle between teams, the Sea Dragons got their first win of the season thanks to Gordon’s late 65-yard touchdown run, but his first down move helped put Seattle back in the game.

DC will try to stay undefeated next week when winless Vegas takes to town.

A Paxton Lynch touchdown run in the fourth quarter broke what was a 3-3 defensive battle and appeared to be the difference-maker before the Renegades went to work. Despite totaling only 178 yards of offense, Arlington was able to muster the victory on Kyle Slaughter’s 15-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Vaughns late in the fourth quarter.

The Renegades moved up to 2-1 with the win while the Guardians remain winless this season. Lynch finished the game with 219 yards passing and no touchdowns or interceptions. Orlando also drove with a rush of 43 yards. Both teams were held to less than 100 yards.
