Several former Syracuse football players made an appearance in Week 1 of the XFL. Here is the full report card on each of them and what it all means.
Each week we’ll go through a full report card on how each of the former Syracuse football players did in the XFL. Week 1 is already in the books and here’s who stood out and made an impact.
Eric Dungey, quarterback, Dallas Renegades
The former Syracuse football quarterback didn’t get the starting nod for the Dallas Renegades in Week 1. Instead, the team leaned on Philip Nelson for the team’s first XFL game.
Dungey didn’t register a statistic on the day and with starting quarterback Landry Jones set to return in Week 2, Eric is likely going to be buried on the depth chart moving forward.
Dallas ending up losing 15-9 to the St. Louis BattleHawks. Next week the team will travel to face off against the Los Angeles Wildcats on the road on Sunday, February 16 at 3:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
Jay Bromley, defensive tackle, DC Defenders
Jay Bromley is the starting defensive tackle for the DC Defenders. He registered three combined tackles and one assisted. DC dominated the game with their defense ironically
The Defenders ended up winning 31-19 over the Seattle Dragons, won the turnover battle 3-0, and are now 1-0 after the first week of the XFL season.
Shamarko Thomas, safety, DC Defenders
Shamarko Thomas didn’t appear on the box score.
The Defenders will welcome in the New York Guardians next Saturday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. ET on February 15 on ABC.
Jordan Martin, free safety, Seattle Dragons
As you already heard, the Dragons started off their season 0-1 after a 31-19 beatdown courtesy of the DC Defenders.
Jordan Martin, the team’s starting free safety, registered two tackles but it wasn’t enough to contain Cardale Jones who went off in the second half.
Up next the Seattle Dragons will host the Tampa Bay Vipers on Saturday, February 15, 5:oo p.m. ET on FOX.
Andrew Tiller, offensive line, Tampa Bay Vipers
On February 1 the Tampa Bay Vipers placed offensive guard Andrew Tiller on the reserved/injured list. He was slated to start for the Vipers prior to his injury.
Without his services, the Tampa Bay Vipers were annihilated by the New York Guardians 23-3. Up next the Vipers will travel to play the Seattle Dragons.
