AAF Opens With Strong Ratings In Debut Saturday

Get Prepared For The Alliance Of American Football, Which Debuts On Saturday Night Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6
Lora Ball | 11 February, 2019, 03:37

Quarterback Mike Bercovici, who played collegiately at Arizona State and spent a short amount of time on the Cardinals' practice squad, was lit up by a defender. The folks behind the Alliance of American Football agree, and as such, the nascent league will make its debut on Saturday evening. While the San Antonio Commanders and San Diego Fleet game left some to be desired in scoring, there was a lot of positive things to pull from the way the game played out.

The AAF got off to a successful start in the ratings book as it filled the post-Super Bowl void for football fans.

Next up - The Apollos will next play February 17 at the Alamo Dome against the San Antonio Commanders with kickoff at 4 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.

Watching the game, it definitely did feel like watching NFL backups play a game of football. Instead, teams will attempt the equivalent of a fourth-and-12 play from their 28-yard line. Each weekend, there will be four games, two each on Saturday night, one on Sunday afternoon and another on Sunday night, with the schedule culminating in the title game on April 27 - the last day of the National Football League draft. Gilbert finished his opening night with a very respectable stat line of 15 of 25 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns. This game is up against some stiff competition on the TV schedule it's all hands on deck for football fans.

But you have to start somewhere, and the start for the AAF is a clear win.

The AAF is a brand new eight-team league which will not only showcase local and developing talent, but it will complement the NFL during the offseason. But with just about a month until Atlanta's AAF kickoff, he departed for what McKay deemed his "next endeavor", leaving Coyle to become a head coach for the first time in his career.

On Sunday, Memphis is at Birmingham, and Salt Lake at Arizona. For the quarterbacks, a four-round draft was held that allowed teams to protect one player from their region or pick from the entire pool. Just seconds after the broadcast team returned their focus to the game, an errant Logan Woodside pass fell into Brooks' hands.

Hackenberg finished the game 10 of 23 passing for 87 yards and an interception. The first two games in league history will take place on Saturday at 8 p.m. and will be shown on CBS.
