XFL Games on TV Today

Houston Roughnecks at Dallas Renegades, 4 p.m. ET on FS1

If both teams show up, this could be a candidate for the game of the season thus far. The Roughnecks are the last remaining undefeated franchise and have been the XFL's best team, while the Renegades are streaking with two straight wins. Houston features the early favorite for MVP in quarterback P.J. Walker, but Dallas has been a different team since Landry Jones returned after missing the opener. Whichever defense makes a critical stop or comes up with a key takeaway could determine the winner of this game.

DC Defenders at Tampa Bay Vipers, 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2

The Defenders are licking their wounds after last week's 30-point shellacking courtesy of the Los Angeles Wildcats but Sunday's matchup with the Vipers may be just what the doctor ordered. Tampa Bay is the XFL's lone winless team and has lost its first three games by 35 points. However, the Vipers put up a fight at home last week against Houston, leading 27-26 early in the fourth quarterback before the Roughnecks scored the final touchdown to secure the hard-fought victory. Quarterback play is an issue for both teams. Tampa Bay has cycled through three different signal-callers with none really succeeding, while DC's Cardale Jones tossed four interceptions last week.
