Tampa Bay Bandits vs. Pittsburgh Maulers, 7 p.m. ET (FS1)

A day later than scheduled, the final game of Week 1 still has the Bandits and Maulers in the prime-time spotlight. Head coaches Kirby Wilson and Todd Haley have some familiarity having been a part of the same coaching staff with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tampa Bay's quarterback is Jordan Ta'amu, who was one of the standout players in the short-lived XFL in spring 2020. Pittsburgh could end up playing both of its signal-callers, Josh Love and Kyle Lauletta. This one could be an interesting chess match between the coaches because of their offensive backgrounds.
