The Seattle Dragons will take on the Dallas Renegades this Saturday evening in what should be a great matchup. The Dragons won over the Tampa Vipers in a 17-9 victory last weekend.
The Dragons looked great all over the field last weekend. Silvers seemed to settle down a lot and trust the deep ball more often than the Defenders game. The defense was also great, Steven Johnson, who had ten tackles and two for loss. The Dragons are shaping up nicely.
Tale of The Tape
Brandon Silvers and the Dragons will have to square up against the XFL poster child and former Pittsburgh Steeler, Landry Jones. Jones didn’t look great last week, but he got the job done and got the Renegades the win.
Jones will have his hands full against the great Seattle secondary, being that he is not a mobile quarterback at all.
Silvers should try to exploit the deep ball again, and Byrd and Proehl turn on jets and get under the ball like they are good at doing.
Key Players for the Dragons
Brock Miller, the punter, is one of the keys to this Dragons football team. He has been killing it; he pinned the Vipers deep almost every time last week. One of the punts he pinned the Vipers at their own one-yard line. He is the guy I want punting the ball with the game on the line or the opponent’s side of the 50-yard line; he is clutch as they come!

Anthony Johnson Sr, he’s always a force to be reckoned with when he’s on the line. He reminds me of a Cam Heyward type of guy, very physical, and never gives up until he levels the guy or the whistle blows. The line of the Renegades better be ready for him, they will have a long evening on their hands if they don’t look after him.
Austin Proehl is the third player the Renegades need to watch out for. You cannot sleep on Proehl; when he’s running out for the ball, he is known to buckle his defenders up and run big, just like that massive touchdown in week one.
This game should be a close one, both teams have their QB1 settled, and you should look forward to the Dragons breathing fire in this bout back in the home of the 12th man, Dragons 22- Renegades-20.
