Houston Roughnecks Form

Houston have never lost an XFL game in their existence and are now 4-0 this season.

The Roughnecks opened the 2023 campaign in strong fashion as they blew out Orlando at home, 33-12.

They followed that up a week later by winning the second ever ‘Texas Throwdown’ with Arlington, beating the Renegades 23-14.

Houston then made it 3-0 with a 22-13 win over San Antonio before heading out on the road for the first time.

The Roughnecks had no issues in their road opener, dominating Orlando on their way to a 44-16 victory – the biggest win any XFL team has managed so far this season.

Seattle Sea Dragons Form

Seattle come into this game with a 2-2 record thanks to back-to-back wins kick-starting their season.

The Sea Dragons blew a late lead in DC on opening night, as a couple of Ben DiNucci turnovers proved costly in a 22-18 defeat to the Defenders.

They then threw away another late lead in their home opener, as they were beaten 20-18 by St Louis.

Seattle finally stopped the rot in Week 3 though, and they did it in dramatic fashion as Josh Gordon’s touchdown in the final minute snatched a 30-26 win at Vegas.

The Sea Dragons backed that win up when they returned home, but the offense failed to fire as they were forced to grind out a 15-6 win against San Antonio.
