I'd want the Bandits to rally just for the intrigue factor: If NOLA takes care of business tonight and TB doesn't come back, then the Breakers are win and in against the Bandits in week nine (that and the Stallions would officially clinch tomorrow).

Houston blows leads sure but at least it's a four quarter literally all 60 minute game with them. TB's just "are you even gonna finish .500?" at this point.

NJ tough, TB sloppy at times. Need to step up in 2nd half, need more screens with blockers in front. Ta'amu holding ball too long. Game not over

Tampa responding in the 4th quarter. Ta'amu to Franklin TD to make it 20-13. New Jersey.

I just won't understand how JT got to be so 'meh' after such a great run in the XFL. I'd imagine if you watched his last year at Ole Miss, which was kinda like a 2-in-1 you're not surprised but this is a bit of a shock.

BTW is the league using the NCAA passer rating? He had a 128.9 coming in.

And this is why when TB was on the move we didn't call anything, as Jac's dad once put it, "They're not there yet"

With the win NJ is officially in Canton, and Bham will in all likelihood join them tomorrow

Defenses are good. He forces some balls. Getting INt's.

DAMN - That NJ D was tight. They should have worked towards a 1st.

I got spanked like a crying baby on my early Over and TB +4. Needed that TD.

Decent game, competitive. NJ - In playoffs... I like that just wish it was dragged out a bit. TB needs to regroup.
