A mic'd up Christian Hackenberg kept cursing during his bad AAF debut

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

The Alliance of American Football's inaugural games Saturday posted better ratings than the night's top National Basketball Association matchup.

Christian Hackenberg - a former five-star recruit and Penn State record-holder turned NFL castoff - is looking to resurrect his football career.

In the second game of a doubleheader on Sunday in the Alliance of American Football, two intriguing teams in the Salt Lake Stallions and Arizona Hotshots squared off.

Trent Richardson couldn't crack it in the NFL after being drafted third overall in 2012, but can he get another shot with a big performance in the Alliance of American Football? Well, it's a professional football league founded by producer and director Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, the longtime general manager of the Indianapolis Colts.

William Barr , Trump's nominee to be his permanent Attorney General, is on track to be confirmed by the full Senate next week. An aide to a senior House Republican said of Whitaker's jab during a hearing recess: 'I've never seen that one before.

There were some refreshing twists to the AAF brand of football, which does aim to complement, not compete with, the NFL. Otherwise, they are connected by the league office to players who last suited up for the closest NFL or CFL team.

There are no extra points; every touchdown is followed by a two-point conversion attempt. In the Memphis Express' 26-0 loss at the hands of the Birnimgham Iron (love these World Football League-style names), he completed just 10 of 23 passes for 87 yards and an interception. Patriots fans might recall that he has a history of influencing rule changes; after Bill Belichick's defense manhandled the Indianapolis Colts' offense in 2004, Polian - then the Colts' president - prodded the National Football League until it restricted what defenders could do to receivers downfield. The team will be coached by, coaching legend Steve Spurrier.

Let's look at some of the top plays and score updates through the game, which featured the Hotshots taking a lead during the second half.

Like Spurrier, Mike Martz and Mike Singletary, Childress was among the first big-name additions to the AAF roster, bringing a plethora of NFL experience to the upstart league. Fans will be able to log on to an app during the games and interact with a livestreamed broadcast.
