XFL Week 3 – Highlights, sport recaps, high gamers, information

From last minute touchdowns to break out stars, Week 3 of the XFL had it all.

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

The DC Defenders were the first team to notch three wins this season while the Arlington Renegades outlasted the Orlando Guardians, 10-9, in a defensive struggle.

Here are all this week’s highlights.

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

This weekend’s games

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

In a battle of winless teams, the Sea Dragons notched their first win of the season thanks to Gordon’s late 65-yard touchdown but his footwork on his first touchdown helped get Seattle back in the game.

Vegas fell to 0-3 with the loss.

The Defenders were able to survive four touchdown passes from Battlehawks quarterback A.J. McCarron to move to 3-0 on the season and take a commanding lead in the XFL North division by winning the battle of undefeateds. Both Jordan Ta’amu and D’Eriq King threw touchdowns in the win while the defense recorded two interceptions, including a pick-six, and four sacks.

Ta’amu also added another touchdown on the ground.

DC will try to remain undefeated next week when winless Vegas travels to town.

A fourth-quarter Paxton Lynch touchdown run broke what was a 3-3 defensive battle and looked to be the difference maker before the Renegades off went to work. Despite only totaling 178 yards of offense, Arlington was able to rally for the win on a Kyle Sloter 15-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Vaughns late in the fourth quarter.

The Renegades moved to 2-1 with the win while the Guardians remain winless this season. Lynch finished the game with 219 yards passing with no touchdowns or interceptions. He also led Orlando with 43 yards rushing. Both teams were held to under 100 yards rushing.
