  • Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Former University of Alabama standout and 33rd pick of the Cleveland Browns in the NFL Trent Richardson is now the starting running back of the Birmingham Iron in the Alliance of American Football.

Gilbert's 26-yard touchdown pass in the first minute of the second quarter to Jalin Marshall not only put Orlando up, 7-3, but it was the first touchdown in AAF history.

It clearly wasn't the National Football League, as anyone watching San Antonio's 15-6 victory over San Diego quickly discovered when Shaan Washington delivered a monster hit on Fleet quarterback Mike Bercovici.

The Alliance of American Football is here to provide more football while the NFL season is over.

And fans - at least those in Orlando, Florida, who showed up in the rain for Steve Spurrier's debut in the new league Saturday night - are eager to buy. Instead, teams will attempt the equivalent of a fourth-and-12 play from their 28-yard line.

In our system of justice, the model is that appeals courts only decide questions of law based on the factual record before them. In his dissent, Kavanaugh cited the law's 45-day window for doctors to obtain the admitting privileges to stay within the law.

While the first three AAF football games were televised on CBS, this game will exclusively air on the NFL Network cable TV channel.

Only time will tell if the league will stick around or work well over time. 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. Almost 21,000 people showed up and saw the Apollos beat the Atlanta Legends, 40-6, with Spurrier, 73, coaching for the first time since 2015. At 8 p.m., the Salt Lake Stallions play the Arizona Hotshots (NFL Network). The AAF football league will play a 10 week schedule.

The team plays their home opener at Rice-Eccles Stadium on February 23, but the Stallions will play their first game ever on February 10 when they travel to play the Arizona Hotshots.

After the interception by Steven Johnson Jr., the Hotshots got the ball back to go in and score and expand their lead to 35-16 and almost grab control of this game.
