Offense: QB Josh Johnson – LA
20/36 Passing, 288 Yards, 4TD, 1 INT. 7 Rush, 19 Yards
Josh Johnson lit up the Vipers in a 41-34 shootout, putting on a clinic and proving that he can be one of the league’s best quarterbacks. After their offense has a middling performance last week vs New York, they came hot out of the gate and proved that they can be one of the league’s most dangerous offenses when they get rolling.
Defense: FS Kenny Robinson – STL
5 Tackles, 1 Sack, 1 QBH, 1 TFL, 1 INT, 1 PD
The young riser out of West Virginia had a field day against the DC Defenders despite a loss. He essentially put Cardale Jones out of the game with an early pick, as he was benched in favor of Tyree Jackson for the rest of the game.
In this performance, he proved that he can be a playmaker all over the field, whether he’s rushing the passer, making stops behind the line or disrupting as a ballhawk in the secondary. The FS is making an XFL appearance to help boost his Draft Stock, and Sunday’s performance will go a long way to enticing NFL teams.
Special Teams: LB Jameer Thurman – DC
9 Tackles, Blocked Punt
In a closely contested, defensive game on Sunday, Jameer Thurman sealed the BattleHawks fate as he rushed up the gut and blocked Marquette King’s punt in the 4th Quarter. Jonathan Celestein recovered the ball at St. Louis’ goal line, and a Ty Rausa Field Goal spelled ballgame.
Thurman did more than just finish off the game for DC, he contributed all day in their defense, making 7 stops on that side of the ball, and 2 on special teams.
