Former Bills CB intercepts pass in AAF debut

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6 Poll: Which AAF team are Colts fans supporting?

Something called the Alliance of American Football made its debut Saturday night and here's what we learned about the first of the league's nine regular-season weekends.

Throughout the rosters, football fans will note dozens of players that they might remember from the NFL field years ago, or even this past season.

With time now even more against them, expect to see some QBs panicking at the line of scrimmage, and possibly a few delay of game penalties here and there.

So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There are two scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 10.

The Head Ball Coach is back, lighting up the scoreboard and selling the Alliance of American Football.

He said the creation of the AAF was based around giving the players an opportunity. The Head Ball Coach took the sideline for the sixth different team in his coaching career. "I think we had a pretty good crowd, 20,000 wasn't bad".

In the league's other opener Saturday night, San Antonio topped San Diego 15-6.

On top of those changes, the AAF actually has ruled out kicking FGs in overtime, hoping for a faster and higher-scoring game. But if you weren't sure who to root for, we might be able to help.

The events occurred in a unusual, chronological order, nearly as though fans were watching an inspirational Hollywood movie instead of the inaugural game of an upstart football league. The other three - Birmingham Iron, Orlando Apollos and Salt Lake Stallions - have nearly no connection to Halas Hall. It may not be the loudest look, but there's something to be said for the more subtle look that will be on display at Legion Field on Sunday. There's the NFL Draft, and training camps, and the preseason, and spring games for college teams, but there's no football with any sort of stakes for half a year.

Each player in the nascent league signed the same deal: a three-year, $250,000 contract with an option to opt-out if the NFL comes calling during the offseason. Sports TV Ratings said the first game on CBS ‏averaged 2.913 million viewers between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The team plays their home opener at Rice-Eccles Stadium on February 23, but the Stallions will play their first game ever on February 10 when they travel to play the Arizona Hotshots.
