It’s only Week 3 of the XFL season, but there's already some separation showing in the standings. The DC Defenders and Houston Roughnecks are the lone remaining undefeated teams, while the Los Angeles Wildcats and Tampa Bay Vipers are still searching for their first wins. Will these two trends continue in Week 3?
Well, it just so happens that Vipers will host the Roughnecks to kick the action off on Saturday. It's Tampa Bay's first home game against the XFL's top-scoring team. Houston has put up 65 points in its first two games while the Vipers have yet to score an offensive touchdown.
The other game on Saturday finds the Seattle Dragons hosting the Dallas Renegades. Both teams are coming off of wins last week with Seattle's coming in front of a crowd of more than 29,000 at CenturyLink Field.
On Sunday, the St. Louis BattleHawks will play their first home game against the New York Guardians. St. Louis has been in a pair of close contests while New York went from blowing out the Vipers in Week 1 to getting shut out by the Defenders last Saturday.
And those same Defenders will be out in Los Angeles to face the Wildcats in the Week 3 finale. Los Angeles will try to get in the win column against a DC team that has posted a pair of dominating victories to open the season.
