Career revivals, transparency in administration and fantastic comebacks were littered in Week 1 of XFL action. With the first of four matchups wrapped up for this week, who’s ready for more XFL games today?

A Thursday night fight between the St. Louis Battlehawks and the Seattle Sea Dragons is already scheduled in Week 2, so when do the other games start? Here’s everything you need to know about week two XFL games today, including tee times, channels, live stream options and more.

At the start of the 2023 XFL season, three out of four games went into the overs, and while the offense may have started out slow, the second half was action-packed. With the rosters looking like what people expected from a talent perspective, the XFL leaderboard should be even in Week 2. You can follow this weekend’s action here.

DC Defenders (1-0) at Vegas Vipers (0-1)

  • start time: 7 p.m. ET, Saturday, February 25
  • TV channel: FX
  • Live broadcast: ESPN+, fuboTV

The DC Defenders and Vegas Vipers take the spotlight as they kick off the only XFL week two game today. After opening the season with a home win, the defenders travel to Cashman Field in hopes of going undefeated.

Greg Williams’ defense was savage in Week 1, forcing three turnovers and keeping the Sea Dragons attack at bay all night. On the other hand, the Vipers got off to a hot start against the Arlington Renegades but folded in the second half. Two Renegades pick sixes put Vegas in a hole it could never climb out of.

If Vegas wants its first win of the season, capping sales is a priority. The DC defense is already firing on all cylinders to start the season. The more time QB Jordan Ta’amu has to develop chemistry with his receivers, the better the defenders’ offense will be. Keep an eye on DC RB Ryquell Armstead as he excels outside the backfield and as a receiver.

San Antonio Brahmas (0-1) vs. Orlando Guardians (0-1)

  • start time: 4 p.m. ET, Sunday, February 26
  • TV channel: ESPN
  • Live broadcast: ESPN+, fuboTV

The first of two Sunday XFL games today sees a pair of winless teams attempting to break into the W column. The San Antonio Brahmas travel to Camping World Stadium at 4 p.m. ET to take on the Guardians. The Guardians were thoroughly crushed in Week 1, a result many people saw coming in preseason.

On the other hand, San Antonio has seen firsthand just how different the XFL is from the NFL. With a 12-point lead with less than two minutes left, the Battlehawks scored 15 points to beat the Brahmas. HC Hines Ward’s coaching career got off to a rocky start but the experience of his staff should ensure it doesn’t repeat itself.

San Antonio QB Jack Coan and RB Kalen Ballage had some of the better performances from Week 1 and should benefit from an easier week 2 matchup against the Guardians. Outside of the last two minutes, the defense against St. Louis was solid. While it seems clear who should emerge 1-1 from this clash, San Antonio were two minutes away from going unbeaten.

Arlington Renegades (1-0) at Houston Roughnecks (1-0)

  • start time: 7 p.m. ET, Sunday, February 26
  • TV channel: ESPN2
  • Live broadcast: ESPN+, fuboTV

Soccer and Texas – is there a better pairing? With three franchises in the Lone Star State, inter-city battles are common, with the first coming in Week 2 when the Arlington Renegades take on the Houston Roughnecks.

The final XFL game of Week 2 will feature two teams that were victorious in Week 1. Houston led early against the Guardians while their defense stifled Orlando’s offense. Arlington faced a much tougher test, battling with the Vipers for a full 60 minutes in a 22-20 win. Both defenses forced multiple turnovers and repeatedly came to the QB.

However, Arlington will need an upgrade to their offensive line in Week 2. While the Renegades were able to put pressure on the opposing backfield, QB Drew Plitt was also sacked three times.

Houston fired Paxton Lynch and Quinten Dormady seven times, with LB amassing Trent Harris four times. If Arlington can’t stem the Roughnecks’ passing rush, Houston will be the Kings of Texas in the XFL, at least until they play the Brahmas in Week 3.
