XFL power rankings: Houston stays on top, D.C.’s slide continues heading into Week 5

first_imgThe Houston Roughnecks remain the lone unbeaten team heading into Week 5 of XFL action.  Houston beat Dallas 27-20 in an in-state battle that was the marquee matchup in Week 4. The Roughnecks have some competition in the top half of the league, however, that will be lurking heading into the final week of the first half of the season.   6. Los Angeles Wildcats (1-3)  Josh Johnson passed for 330 yards and two TDs and continues to improve at quarterback, but the Wildcats finished 2 of 11 on third down. New York hit the game-winning field goal with 10:54 remaining. Nelson Spruce (256 receiving yards) and Tre McBride (236) both rank in the top five in the league, so LA. will stay in games, but they need to finish. The Wildcats play Tampa Bay at home in Week 5.  7. Seattle Dragons (1-3)  The Dragons are the latest team to switch quarterbacks. Seattle benched Brandon Silvers for B.J. Daniels, a former star quarterback at South Florida, in the loss to St. Louis. Daniels was 5 of 10 for 50 yards, but he added seven carries for 84 yards. Seattle made it interesting after falling behind 17-3. Expect Daniels to take the snaps against Houston. That should be a better-than-expected matchup.  8. Tampa Bay Vipers (1-3)  Tampa Bay jumped out to a 16-0 halftime lead and outgained the Defenders 223-79 in the first two quarters. Taylor Cornelius was effective with 211 passing yards a TD and an interception. The running game was the story, however with De’Veon Smith (24 carries, 122 yards) and Jacques Patrick (21 carries, 108 yards) gashing the Defenders’ defense. The Vipers got their first win, and they can build on it in Week 5 against LA.

Walker passed for 239 yards, two TDs and an interception in the victory against Dallas, and he did all that despite a quiet performance from Cam Phillips, who had one catch for nine yards.
