Arlington Renegades at Houston Roughnecks 2/26/23 - XFL Picks & Predictions

The Arlington Renegades will take their first road trip of the season in week two with a game in Houston against the Houston Roughnecks. Arlington comes into week two undefeated following a narrow 2 point win over Vegas in week 1. Offensively Arlington played pretty well in week one compiling 246 total yards including 4.2 yards per play to score 22 total points including nineteen in the second half to erase an 11 point halftime deficit.

Quarterback Drew Plitt led the show for the Arlington offense completing 19 of 25 passes for 172 yards and ran the ball five times for 16 yards as well. Deveon Smith led all ballcarriers for Arlington with 42 yards on 15 carries and added 15 more yards on two receptions as well. Sal Cannella led all receivers in the game for Arlington with 70 yards on seven catches but defenders De Vante Bausby and Tomasi Laulie were the stars of the game for Arlington as each returned an interception for a touchdown.

The Houston Roughnecks remain at home in week two undefeated following a 19 point blowout victory of Orlando in week one. Offensively Houston was the better team compiling 337 total yards of offense including 5.2 yards per play to score 33 total points after a 21 point first half. Defensively Houston dominated the game as well allowing just 12 points on just over 300 total yards of offense.

Brandon Silvers motored the Houston offense completing 26 passes for 272 yards and two scores in the game. Running back Max Borghi added 42 yards and one touchdown on 8 carries and Cole McDonald chipped in 14 yards and one score on four carries as well. Deontay Burnett led all receivers in the game with 90 yards and one score on 8 grabs, while Jontre Kirklin chipped in 71 yards and one score on five catches as well.

Both teams come into week two undefeated, but Houston is by far the better team. Offensively Houston will dominate this game as they busted 30 points in week one. Arlington has yet to score an offensive touchdown and will struggle to keep up in week two with a potent Houston offense. Take Houston to do enough in week two to get the win and cover to remain undefeated. Final Score Prediction, Houston Roughnecks win and cover 34-13.
